A BUSy day

Ever spent a total of 10 hours on a bus for a day? Welcome to my world.

I woke up at 6.30am yesterday morning, took a bus to KL, then a cab home to say hi to mom and dad (only to find my parents weren't in - good thing I got the cab to wait), then cabbed it to Park Royal Hotel KL where I had a fitting for my beautiful gown by Jovian Mandagie (to be worn on Friday at the Big Event in Kuala Lumpur), then I cabbed it back to the bus terminal and bussed back to Singapore.

Why didn't I fly, you ask?

Answer: Think money grows on trees, ah? :P Only on Ch. 5, 8.30pm every Wednesday. Other than that, Andrea Fonseka needs to save money too, like every other average person living in Singapore. ;)

Today starts early again; I'll be off to the gym at about 9am, to be done by about 12noon. A light lunch (probably coffee) will follow before I head home, drop my stuff off and head to St. James Powerstation for the rehearsals of the Elle Awards I will be hosting tonight at 7pm. Anyone wanna come? Its going to be at Movida. Go find someone to get you tickets and come say hi to me~! It'd be nice to meet the people who so loyally visit my blog and post comments and such.

Anyway some thoughts floating around which I'd like to pen down...

I'm thinking of throwing a party soon, to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of www.andreafonseka.com, and the boom of my blog that has come about thanks to your loyal visits. I *might* book out a club, and anyone who wants to attend just needs to email me. It'll be hard to find an alcohol sponsor, though I'm sure I can cut some sort of deal with the club. The conversation might be as follows:

Andrea: I wanna have a party at your bar. I want alcohol discount, and section closed off to MY guests only. Deal or No Deal?

Bar Owner: ....I dont know...this is tough...

Andrea: You have a 70% chance of getting mostly men to your bar, as research shows that guys are the ones mainly visiting my site. However, consider the fact that I will most likely invite all 25 other models from DOND, and that might spice things up abit. Let me ask you officially; Deal or No Deal?

BarOwner: [with fellow beer-bellied mates chanting: DEAL!!!!! DEAL!!! DEAL!!!!]

I DONT KNOW!!! ITS TOO STRESSFULL! IF I SAY NO DEAL THEN ANOTHER BAR SAY DEAL AND I REGRET HOW??? OK OK DEAL DEAL DEAL!!! *deal or no deal theme music plays in background and everyone cheers, spilling beer*

*laughs*

Okay so my humour tends to get slightly retarded this early in the morning. Apologies. I'm having a super-long day today again. I'm lovin' it! Funny how work isn't really work when you love what you do.

Hey it's 心魔 (initials "XM") here again, but from now on I'd chuck the chinese characters for ease of reference and be known as the nick you see now, yeah... (and this'll apply to the chatter box in your blog too)

Eh you're right about money growing on trees on DOND, even if it's $1!

And woah, scary, don't "play play" indeed.. and man, "refraining order" some more... did you take Fam?

I like your idea of cutting a deal with the bar owner. Instead of just saying, "I want alcohol discount", why not make it specific, "I want 50% alcohol discount. D O N D?"

it's a pleasure to read your blog. it's very down-to-earth =)

Louisa said...

Your light lunch is coffee?
Do you eat?

miko said...

Im sure the club would still earn a lot even if they give you a big discount.. Actually, I think it should be the club that has to pay you for using their venue for your party..

miko <-- looking forward to getting invited and meeting andrea

Andrea,
might i ask how you came to these conclusions: "Andrea: You have a 70% chance of getting mostly men to your bar, as research shows that guys are the ones mainly visiting my site."?

Pathfinder said...

"Why didn't I fly, you ask?"

Because, despite your looks, you don't REALLY have wings. ;)

You work out from 9 to 12, and have coffee for lunch? :O Please say you're (at least) using milk or cream!

Pathfinder said...

This seems like a bunch of nice people, so let's play nice with Miss Fonseka? We are, after all, here as her guests...

Jefferson said...

She's a down-to-earth person. Hope you weren't disappointed as you weren't able to meet your parents. Btw, I;ve been out of you blog for awhile.. are you gonna stay in M'sia for awhile before jetting out of the country? ^__^

Jefferson said...

Btw, your jokes are better than mine.. throughout the whole day, maybe.. haha.. Looking forward to the party.. errmmm.. when?

Andrea Fonseka said...

Louisa, yes it was a big day yesterday, I had to fit in a little dress to host the Elle awards so I didn't want to eat anything heavy, Jeff, I'll only be in Malaysia for the weekend. Pathfinder, sorry, I have my coffee black. Basil, just trying to copy the percentages sections from deal or no deal, actually I have no idea how many males vs female visit my blog.
