Paradox

Hi sweethearts :)
I have 2 pieces of news to share with you girls today!!!!

First of all, suuuuper many thanks to you girls, my blog post for the Yummilicious Feast at Icon Village (http://pxdkitty.blogspot.com/2011/06/yummilicious-feast-icon-village.html) organized by http://www.omy.sg/ won!!!! :D :D :D
*dances around throwing confetti*
the prize is $500 worth of FOOD vouchers (please still love me when I grow very fat) at Icon Village!!


So baby and I went to Singapore Press Holdings today to collect my prize!! :)
i've never struck toto or anything before and this feels daaaaaamn close to what striking lottery would feel like!!!!!!
it was totally unexpected cause there were definitely a lot more professional food bloggers who attended the event, plus it was my very first blogger outing
so i really really really have you girls to thank!!!!! **MANY MANY MANY HUGS AND KISSES**

(crazily in love with this awesome Snake ring from http://chic-obsession.livejournal.com/)




we took some pictures cause the place looked really cool and official-ish!!!! :)



AND I REALLY LIKED THIS EAGLE!!!
if i had one at home i'll put it at my door
not guard dog, but GUARD EAGLE!!!! naiseeee :)




+++

Secondly, regarding my very first casting / audition I mentioned in a post about.. 2 weeks back.....

I GOT REJECTED :'(

But as I mentioned previously, it was the biggest honour in my entire insignificant measly life to even be given a chance, despite being rejected.
Like I said, I've never been asked for casting for modelling or whatever cool stuff before!!! :(

It was Clicknetwork.tv that emailed to ask if I was interested in going for a casting for their new show and obviously I was suuuuuper surprised and excited!
But then again, I was extremely stressed over it and couldn't sleep well and eat well for days before the audition and just the night before the casting I was so nervous and jumpy i banged my elbow onto some sharp corner really hard and then it started bleeding badly.. that was how much the casting had an impact on me. And I really wanted the part! (who wouldn't?)

After the interview, one of the girls told me to wait 1 to 2 weeks for the result but after 2 weeks I received none. So I finally texted one of them to ask if getting no replies means they've chosen someone else
(i actually already knew that i didn't get chosen else they would have text me long ago, right? but a part of me needed to hear the cruel truth to give up hoping)

And then the entire weight of reality came crashing down on me as I read the reply that they had already selected a suitable candidate

at first I tried not to cry
I told myself I knew I wouldn't get the part, I was just "trying my luck" and that I only took it as "a good learning experience"

until i broke the news to baby.. and that's when the waves and waves of disappointment became too overwhelming and manifested themselves into liquid form, a burning sensation as they escaped from my eyes

my poor boyfriend had to keep wiping my tears and hugging me, really wouldn't know what to do without him. maybe i might have just became too stupid and blinded by the moment and did something irreversible. but thankfully he was there :)
and of course, thanks to the many sweethearts on twitter who caught me posting emo tweets and gave me cyber hugs and all!!! ^^

i'm feeling way better now!

though i'm obviously really sad about being rejected (duh~~~)
and through that i've realised how insignificant and how lowly others might think of me
and yeap. i KNOW that i just have to suck it up cause if i'm not good enough then i really have no one else to blame but myself :)

+++

ANYWAY enough of ranting!!!!!~~~~~~ ^^
in case anyone was wondering
OF COURSE I DIDN'T FORGET ABOUT YOU GIRLSSSSSSSS :)

I really am absolutely certain that I couldn't have won the Yummilicious Feast blog contest without you girls!!!
I REALLY CAN'T BE MORE THANKFUL :')

So I'll be giving away 5 x $10 Food Vouchers for Icon Village (closest MRT Tanjong Pagar) to 5 lucky girls!!!
The food vouchers will last till Dec 2011 so no rush in making your way there :)
But trust me, Icon Village is a DAMN NICE PLACE! awesome food + good to take photos there too!!!

How to Win:
1. Leave ANY comment at the end of this post (smiling faces, dots and lines count too! hahaha)
2. Add in YOUR EMAIL at the end of it so I can contact you if you win
3. I'll choose 5 winners on 17th July 11.59PM


Okay maybe some girls will be like "huh you win $500 you give us $50 only? so giam siap!!"
No horrr!!!

Cause right I need to treat my mummy, my sister, my brother and my boyfriend to eat first, plus Eric and Kiyomi whom I met at the Yummilicious Feast event cause I promised them on twitter to treat them!!! :)

So if I have any more after that I'll do giveaways for the food vouchers again~~~ kay? :)

But either ways, I WILL ALWAYS HAVE MORE GIVEAWAYS hahaha scared what! :p

I HOPE YOU WIN~~~~ *HUGS*
Goodnight!

Hi babe!
CONGRATULATIONS ON WINNING THE CONTEST! I am really glad that my vote was part of your victory! I really hope to try out the sumptuous food @ Icon Village, especially the fish & chips that looks too good to be true. :D
I also will like to take this opportunity to thank you for providing me with blogshops that are so affordable, simple tutorials that really make wonders and introducing delicious food that make my tummy wish I was a better owner. Hehee.

Katy Lee said...

Hi!! I'm katy here! Rmb how I was telling u on fb chat that I didn't rly like u before bcs I thought you look like those who act nice on fb and all!! But aft reading ur blog, u just totally won me over la!! U started making videos requested by many to acquire to our needs, advertising for cheap deals so we won't miss out on anything, @ing back to ppl whom you don't know with a v friendly tone! Most ppl when they get their clothes from a specific bs, they seem to be selfish in telling ppl whr they got their outfits from but you are different! U don't care whose copying you, u just share it w everyone else!! :) I think all bloggers shld be like pxdkitty!! Srsly, I've came across a lot that tried to be nice and act bigshot don't reply @s, and I soon started to stereotype bloggers that they are all the same, even you!! Gosh sorry abt that!! I rly didn't know much abt u back then, but I took the time to get to know you by reading your past entries back from aug 2010. U had many setbacks and u posted ur feelings, I rly felt kinda bad like "gosh why didn't I get to know you earlier so I could comfort u!" But now, u see, you are so confident in front of the camera, your poses and all are so pretty! I watch every of ur video, and I don't find it ugly (the makeup one) or act cute (the 2sec wink) or like trying to be famous! In anyway, I hope you continue ur bs and continue growing big! :) Though I have my o's now, I will continue to support you! Aft my o's we go ton HAHHAHA ok love you :) we need to meet up for my tai yang bing HAHAHA thank you rachell :) ok back to tuition! Hahaha katy95-@hotmail.com
