Female Magazine's 50 Gorgeous People 2007 Streethunt at VivoCity

Over the weekend I was kindly asked by Female Magazine to host their Streethunt for this year's 50 Gorgeous People at Vivocity. I must say we had quite a good turnout, and it was lotsa lotsa fun. I mean, I got paid to checkout guys (and girls). How fantastic is that. ;) Big thanks to the Female Mag team; you guys rocked.



So anyway, lets start from the beginning. When I got there on day one.. what did I see?

OOOOooO!!!

I've never seen a picture of myself on a mag blown up and placed *anywhere* before!! That's the 'front desk' of the whole area.


And that was the stand next to it, displaying my mags. That's my co-host standing behind it, sipping coffee. Lol.

I hosted this event with Chua En Lai, and I have to say; he's an amazing host. He's absolutely underrated in this industry (in my humble opinion) and is capable of both acting (he started out in theatre) and hosting to boot. We're definitely going to be seeing much much more of the cheeky fella!

"Please-lah. The mags here should just be coasters for my drinks. Oh and look.. "

"Andrea Fonseka - you are NOTHING but a pretty face."

It was at that point I realised that I was just lucky.. As no one really cared that I was plastered on the venue except me.

"Omg Its the attack of the Watsons-Model Monsterrr!!"



So I quickly decided to ger over it. I grabbed a cuppa myself..



And then it was all good. ;)




I didn't make use of the cam after that, a lesson I quickly learnt on Day Two. So while I was hosting I got someone to take pictures of En Lai and myself in action.

As usual, we decided to camera-whore a little bit before we got to work.


"Yes Daahling. We KNOW we're gorgeousss... purrr.."



"THIS my dear friends.. is how you work the camera!!"

"I see someone! He looks pretty decent! Hey you! Stop! Come here and sign up!

"Hey don't run away! We can see you! You over there! Come back!!

"WHY is everyone running away from me?!?!"

Andrea: What's up man. Why you never go and chase that guy. I'm wearing heels, I cannot run... Now he's gone. How? How you want to explain to boss how you tell me how???

En Lai: Please ok. YOU scared him away!! Who asked you to wear high heels you Amazonian wannabe! Anyway you have longer legs. YOU should've gone. Just cause you're a head taller than I am doesn't mean you can bully me around. You WAIT and see I can STILL kick your ass bony butt!
-------------------------------------
That was pretty much it really, for the entire day. ;) Anyhoo it was all great fun, and at the end; you can see we all really enjoyed ourselves. Twas a great day for Gorgeousness.

"En Lai!! Get your hand off my butt!!!!"

alamak why did i go to orchard instead of vivo????????????????,
i might be 213 pounds but i am uniquely gorgeous, and Andrea i'm pretty sure you would have found it hard to miss me.

Beast said...

Hmm Enlai is not really underrated in my opinion as those who have followed local English productions (both in TV and theatre) should have heard of him. He isn't that active in the Chinese productions though, which explains why he is not that well-known, but I agree he is quite a talented fellow.

And I think all the guys here are soooooooooooooo jealous of him now. Hope nobody blows up his photo and use it as a dartboard....=P

Scorpion said...

Why no pictures of the "hunted" people? Not even 1, let alone 50!

Andrea Fonseka said...

Sorry scorp. You have to understand, that Female has the rights to all of the pics of the Gorgeous people that were officially taken there.

Also, I wouldn't want to put any up, and what if the person didn't get in? Then all my blog readers would know the face of a 'failed' gorgeous people tryout.

Awww Sunny! you shouldve!

blackcat said...

Have you finished your school homework, dear girl? I believe you have a lot...hehee...:))

youreader said...

blackcat you sounds really pervish. Hey andrea, saw u at vivo last sat, I must say you are a giant, towering over enlai!
You are studying at the bukit timah campus right? not the kentridge one?

Anonymous said...

jill said...

Beast...

I'm not jealous of EL in the least, but I'm keeping my eye on him now. For the coaster stunt and the buttgrabbing... ;)

Andrea Fonseka said...

anon: you can send in your picture to female magazine. buy this month's copy to see how. ;)

youreader: I hate being called a giant.. *small sad pout*. It makes me feel so... HUGE. and un-feminine.

jill: send your pics in la! ;)

pathfinder said...

"...no one really cared that I was plastered on the venue except me."

And me... :)

I don't know how much of this entry was REAL, but it was REAL FUNNY. To date, one of my favourites...you're such a dramamama ramalamadingdong. :) You know, I know what happened to you. All we have to do is go full circle...and examine the quotation at the top. Apparently, there was something special in the coffee...

"...I was plastered..." :O

pathfinder said...

Did I catch you again? :)

And you ARE a giant...sweetheart. ;)

pathfinder said...

"And you ARE a giant...sweetheart."

That wasn't written well... :(

I meant "you're a giant sweetheart"...not "you're a giant, sweetheart".

I've a fever, I've a fever! :P

adelin said...

Hello Friends & Andrea,

Seriously, if i am there, i will move the cup.

Lol..............
3 Cheers & 3 Cheers to Andrea!

m said...

Hey Andrea, is knicksgrl0917 your friend? I clicked the link, looks very impressive. But I'm wondering whether it's reliable. So if that's your friend, then I would want to try!

densetsu said...

m, I clicked on the link too. I was directed to a few websites that are rather similiar. You got to pay a sum first before you can get started and so on.. *ponders*

andrea, I missed you at Vivo!!*arrghhh*

"Andrea Fonseka - you are MORE than just a pretty face." - true version *winks* ;p

ck said...

"Seriously, if i am there, i will move the cup."

adelin, which cup will you move?!? ;)

LOL!

adelin said...

haha the plastic coffee cup lor..

Notti boy, what you thinking ah..............

pathfinder said...

"...small sad pout..."

Poor baby...tell you what.

I can make you feel feminine while you're making me feel masculine. :O

DEAL OR NO DEAL? :)

pathfinder said...

CK...

She said she'd MOVE, not REMOVE, the cup... :)

Andrea Fonseka said...

Enuff cup talking lol! And DEFINITELY enough talking about me making you feel masculine , Path. :P

Dansetu: Wah. Thank you for your play with words. ;) berry nice.. made me feel better already. hehe.

I had such a long long day of shopping! lol! I am attending a Levis launch party and they invited me to pick out an outfit to wear on that night. Black skinny jeans, denim jacket, tucked into boots. can hor? :)

densetsu said...

I would love to see you in that! It's gonna be pretty cool on you.. :) I can imagine you in those.will you be letting down your hair?

youreader said...

lol sorry andrea about the giant thing. It's a compliment. I wished I were a couples of inches taller. Being tall is an asset and doesn't compromise on your feminity for sure.
Your life sure seems happening.
Rock on.

fazzy said...

Oh My God...LURVE the outfit. Its so nice...and you looked great in it. Where is it from? The yellow one..

pathfinder said...

"...enough talking about me making you feel masculine..."

I'm TRYING to translate talk into action, but you're not cooperating...

:P

And I wasn't the one complaining about not feeling feminine...wait, that did NOT come out right.

:O

But this isn't how you make a guy feel masculine...

:P

And you have to admit it was a pretty good euphemism...

:D

I guess it's a "no deal" then...

:(

"...denim jacket, tucked into boots. can hor..."

Cannot...jacket CANNOT TUCK INTO boots.

;)

But you're the fashion maven...not me.

:P

Alright, I'm going to be serious for a microsecond...denim jacket, black jeans. I think you're good to "go". I assume the jacket's blue? That would go with the jeans WITHOUT matching like a JC uniform...black and blue even SOUND right. But no blue eyeshadow...

(I disclaim, again...this is NOT my area of expertise.)

Good Nite ` Kimmi said...

fazzy: BEBE BAYBEH, they let me wear it. and took it back. :(

This is a reference for people who keep dogs or cats as pets.This can show the characters of the owners.

Big Dogs
Those keeping big dogs are usually the cheerful optimistic type.They care about discipline and they tend to train their dogs to obey orders strictly.This is the actually the requirements they put on,not only their dogs,but also themselves.

Small Dogs
Most of the small dogs are kept by female owners or chubby male masters.Such owners are usually more thoughtful and gentle.They want to be loved,spoiled and not controlled.

Fighting dogs
Those who keep fighting dogs reflects people's desire to win and their reluctance to accept failure.

Cats
Cat owners are usually more introvert and quiet.They like to hide themselves at home and they keep their problems to themselves without sharing with others.

Those keeping just one or two catrs should have no problem dealing with human relationship.

a bit cannot tahan the crazy aunty on DOND now.

pathfinder said...

"...people that call me a giant..."

Some of them are just jealous...

TALL WOMEN look good, SHORT WOMEN look good, TALL MEN look good...SHORT MEN are the ones with a problem, but only if they SHORTCHANGE themselves.

Look at Napoleon...

"...i LOVE reading your replies and comments."

:D

I LOVE that you LOVE.

First, I was amazingly sexy...now, you LOVE my writing. Next, you'll LOVE me for being amazingly sexy...

:O

Wait, I think I can arrange (or REARRANGE) that right now...

"...path...honestly...i LOVE...you...Yes yes..."

:D

(To the other readers...this was a JOKE. A DOES NOT LOVE ME. She doesn't even want to be AROUND me...in real life. She's afraid she'll get COOTIES.)

pathfinder said...

FS...

(A) I have no pets, and I fit in ALL those categories... :O

(B) There's a difference between keeping "dogs from fighting breeds" and keeping "fighting dogs". People who fight dogs are breaking the law...and should be fed to said dogs.

(C) What about people who have dogs AND cats...like A? Where does SHE fit in? ;)

Scorpion said...

Did anyone notice Maggie Tan's "come-hither" "ooo-la-la" pout when her case number was picked in tonight's DOND? Nose bleed until haemorrhage siah...

fazzy said...

They took it back?! after you wore it?! like seriously?...haha. what are they gonna do? auction it out on ebay saying "Worn by Andrea Fonseka"? Anyway...there seems to be so many Maggie Tan fans here...perhaps you could suggest she start her own blog...I'm sure her fans would flock to it.

fazzy said...

Pathfinder: You're so funny...i'm thoroughly amused by how much response you have to something that's seemingly mundane. You really should try hosting..like Andrea.

Fengshui: I have 2 cats but i'm not introverted leh. If anything I like to whine about my problems to anyone who cares..

pathfinder said...

F...

Thanks...but you've no clue how much that's NOT my thing.

;)

pathfinder said...

"...they invited me to pick out an outfit..."

But you look good in everything, anything, and even/especially nothi...never mind. It's not like I'd know. I can only imagine, and it's not like I do that either...

:P

pathfinder said...

"...amused by how much response you have to something that's seemingly mundane..."

F...

Don't mistake QUANTITY for QUALITY... ;)

fazzy said...

i meant....u got quality and quantity lah bradder...=)

pathfinder said...

F...

Compliments MODESTLY accepted... ;)
