Black Box -Oct Edition-

Received my Oct edition of Black Box during AFA period, so I didn't bother about it until now XD

The full box of products I received!

Many many vouchers as usual! Usually I keep only 1 or 2.

Clockwise from top left: Lovemore Eye Patch, Zappy Sampler Pack, Bifesta Cleaning Lotion, VDL CC Cream

Hulle Prodigieuse Oil 
At first glance, I thought it was some kind of weird nail polish until I finished reading what was on the bottle XD I've only tried it on my hair because it's so shimmery o.O My whole hands were sparkly after applying, so not trying this on my face unless I want to compete with the Christmas lights at Orchard lol. Smells pretty nice though!

Darlie Enamel Protect Toothpaste!

What amused me most this time was the Zappy Sampler Pack, which included a Sunscreen wipe! Never seem sunscreen coming in a wipe form before XD Applying it on skin just feels really wet, but it does feel sticky like sunscreen after 1-2 minutes.

Because they value customer feedback greatly, all subscribers who received this box get to fill up a simple survey for a chance to redeem full sized products! If you complete the survey before the time limit :P

You can now choose to either ballot for the available boxes OR secure your own black box by paying the courier fee of $6!

They also produce specially customized Black Boxes with a theme!

This marks my second box, after receiving the July one. You can read about it here >>> http://amaya-dollonstrings.blogspot.sg/2013/08/black-box-july-edition.html

[Event] AFA Singapore 2013

I had the awesome opportunity to work at this event! I had two jobs (sort-of):
1. ARCC helper for the Singapore, later Malaysia Team
2. Helper for Indonesian guest judge, Richfield Edbert

So yes, I didn't have much time at all to walk the booths or watch the stage activities or meet all my SG friends, or get trolled by this dude: Post by Shinji Sg. So this post is more of a compilation of selfies with the guests backstage XD

Day 1

We spent the evening running around the empty halls before going for rehearsal after the concert ended at 11pm OTL Some hiccups here and there but we successfully checked everyone in, and got all the teams to come to the venue for rehearsal! \o/ Reached home at 2am LOL.

Running around the empty halls LOL

Trying to mimic the meido poses

Day 2

Spent the day being Richfield's helper! His flight came in 20mins early and shocked me cause I was still on the bus to the airport lol XD Got decked out in lolita today too! But no pictures XD Spent some time outside to accompany him for his Tokusatsu shoot, plus met up with Stella, Raistlin & Sochii~ o/

Met up with Natumi and Reika backstage! Reika was pleased to receive her interview by iweekly XD She saw that two photos showed her obvious lack of eyebrows and was so embarrassed XD She went 'why didn't they put mosaic/photoshop!' LOLOLOL.

Kaname only arrived at like 6 plus lol! He only had a photosession that day XD

Day 3

The most hip and happening day! Richfield had another helper for today, so I could fully concentrate on my ARCC duties for the day!


Day 3 - Prejudging

Done in the loading bay area to squeeze everyone in XD

Team Thai!

Team MY!

KINGYO FLOWER POT! Kaname said that it will eat you and drag you to hell. 

Judges for ARCC! Look at Ying Tze being a cut above the rest XD

Achievement unlocked: some fan called me a 'bitch' for covering the names of the judges' files before the start of ARCC so they couldn't figure out where their idol was sitting exactly XD

Yeah if you read the comments below, I offended said fan because of my joke ): I'm sorry ):

All the contestants and judges posing for a photo!

The reason why I have no good pictures of ARCC award ceremony: Being Kaname's "flower girl" LOL

Backstage: the area to meet up with friends XD

Camwhore time~ AFA is really more of an event where I just meet up and hang out with local and overseas friends, as well as meeting loads of new people! This has to be one of the busiest AFAs I've attended XD

With Richfield!

Rena + Whitey!



Angie :D


With Onnies!


omt I look like hjj XD

With Arsen!


BUT HEY! I got to watch TMR and Mizuki Nana from the stage front -throws confetti- Jim sir was very kind to give me and a few others lightsticks so we can enjoy the show!

Looking forward to AFA ID and SG 2014 already XD Getting jio-ed to attend Toys & Comics Fair in Jakarta in March, super tempted XD

5 consecutive shots with the ever awesome Reika!
