I have always try to imagine myself on surfing, and really wish to get a chance to stand on the board and surf under the huge wave when I was studying in Melbourne. Well, that was all just a dream and ended up got a chance to try out Kite Surfing. Never been dissapointed, as when  I saw this news, that end of November there is going to be a surfing competition – Asian Surfing Championship (ASC) by Rip Curl Pro, and this is the first time I heard about it and I am getting excited as its happening at Terengganu, Batu Burok Beach on Nov 30th to Dec 2nd.

This competition is not only about local, as its held on international level whereby surfers around the world will be heading to that venue to compete and challenge on the wave. Its a monsoon season and I am sure its gonna be a great place for surfers.

Carven Ong – Year 2010 is another brand new year yet could not be be better that I actually got invited to Carven Ong’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection fashion show. It was truly amazing and impress to feel how actually a real stage of fashion is all about. Truely take my breath away for my year 2009 for the very first fashion show I attended. Besides showcasing Carven’s collection, it also part of Carven Ong’s Academy graduation with his students showcasing their masterpiece.

As in fashion show, so this post will load with a lot of pictures.

Carven Ong name which is no stranger to anyone in the fashion industry as he had made his name well know thru his hardship and great designs that amaze people as a local designer with international standard. He start to made his name at MODA Wanita Fashion show in 1991 and since then he had grow till today as a great designer and great entrepreneur.

 

Being too happy to first attend a fashion show which is always one of my dream.

Could not deny more that with a great mentor, produce great students. I am totally impress with how the creativity the students are.
The event was also perform by Soo Win Ci Miss World Malaysia 2008/2009. She has the talent for singing.
Right after the performance, this were the moment that we were waiting for, Carven Ong’s Spring/Summer collation, that I have always thought he only does wedding dress. His design is always impressive.

With The Spring/Summer 2010 collection is called Snacas’ Spell” (snaca old English word of ’snake’) – an inspiration like mimicking human mutating into cold-blooded creatures: a tiny step toward the dark side. The long evening gowns are electrifying sexy and elegant with the snake design coil around the heads, clasping through waists, entwined on body and throats as a symbol of Eve’s temptation and of elegance, as it’s seen in Greek Mythology.

I am truely amazed and very impress with his collection with such a great colour combination and potray with his theme very well.
