A Visit From Manila

So…a few weeks ago, Tricia tweeted that she will be visiting M’sia for MIFA (Malaysia International FashionWeek). I was pretty excited and I was thinking maybe, just maybe, I would have a chance to bump into her during her visit here!

So, I replied her tweet by saying, “I hope we can meet up!” I wasnt expecting any reply from her, but she replied, “Sure, lets meet up and have some coffee?”

I was super excited!!! I’ve been reading her blog and following her LOOKBOOK since the day I joined LOOKBOOK.NU (2009).

Hahaha I sound like a stalker but really I cant believe that I would be meeting up with one of my favorite Asian fashion bloggers.

We decided to hang out in Pavilion and go shopping.

I know you want to see her picture badly but I met up with Jo for a quick lunch before picking Tricia up from her hotel.

I love La Bodega’s club sandwich and spicy chicken sausages!

O yea, I’ve finally learned how to make my double eyelids even deeper and look more obvious!!! Double eye lids stickers!!! O im addicted!

Top- Topshop
Blazer- ZARA
Shorts- ZARA
Heels- Jeffrey Campbell
Bag- Balenciaga
Bra- Marlies Dekkers

After lunch, I picked up Tricia and off we went to the mall!

Tadaaa, a picture of me and Tricia! She looks like a life sized Barbie doll!!! She is super sweet and friendly!

We saw these cute little buns in one of the cafes and decided to eat them! Wahahah

The rabbit is for me and the Turtle is for Tricia =)

While we were busy eating and talking the manager brought this to our table. We were like, hmmm we didnt order this you must have sent it to the wrong table. He was like,  “O no, it’s complimentary. The guys from the next table bought you guys this.” We turned to them and said thank you. I’ve been living in Msia since forever and have never gotten this kind of treatment! See, I told you she looks like a Barbie doll! Just in case you’re curious, we couldnt finish the giant Macaroon because it’s way too sweet ==”

Tricia decided to hang out longer with me cause Im too sweet (hahaha jk la dont spam me pls), I invited her to join me and bff for a manicure session in StarHill.

We camwhored in the toilet hahaha

I love coming to Bmic to get my nails done, it is quiet, clean, and the manicurists are very friendly.

3 of us picked the same color for our nails, but I totally forgot to take picture of our nails. I think Tricia has the pictures of our freshly done nails. Im still waiting for her to post it up so I can steal it from her ==”

It was about dinner time so I invited her to have dinner with us (Jo and Aud).

Seriously, never would have thought that I could have a chance to meet up with her. Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to travel to Manila next year and we could meet up again!!!

If not please come to Msia again! Hahahahaha

O yea, I did a little interview with Your Next Jeans!

    I totally understand how you feel when you say you feel like a stalker when you meet her. I felt the same when I met you too in the gyaru event asking you for photos and Facebook haha. Hope you’re not scared by me !

    Hi Eleena,
    Funny when I see your comment cox i received the similar question on Formspring too!! You must be Tricia’s super fan =) hehehe I tot I answered it edi but no harm to do it again ya !
    I love looking at her pictures and also her personal style hehe. To me, her look is more feminine and more to japanese style but I think mine is more towards european hehehe. My inspirations come from Style scrap book and The blonde salad’s blog hehe. As for pose, I called mine an awkward pose cox I never know where to put my hands hahah. Hers is more natural, dolly pose and not to mention PROFESSIONAL!! How can we be so similar!!! She looks like a barbie doll!!! Come on! Hahahahaha. Ure the only one who says we look alike though! It’s really my pleasure to look like her! =)

    Maykuan, hahaha awww u’re the sweetest! Upload the picture to FB and tag me ya!!

  • Reply A Day With Bobo - Tricia Will Go Places

    […] Bobo was one of the first people who replied to me when I tweeted something about having time to meet some Malaysian readers interested to bring me around the city to kill some idle time before the MIFW (Malaysia International Fashion Week) gala nights. She was telling me how surprised she got when I tweeted her back in acknowledgement, but in all honesty I think it’s my honor to be followed by such a wonderful and stylish person such as her. […]
