This NHK Tokyo Kawaii thing has quite a twist in the end!
At first it was really just a filming about foreign gyaru with their Japanese fashion, but in the end instead of just Aud and i, it became 8 Malaysian girls who are now more gyaru than ever, and also two Real Deal™ who shed many tears in front of the camera
Ok here’s the half secret Aud has already revealed.
We’re such fickle minded and easily budged human beings the moment we saw Maiko and Lie looking so effortlessly good in black and Kara (spicy) style, we were like FTS we would ditch CUTE forever and go for HOT. Plus i think most guys prefer HOT to CUTE that’s why until nao my market value very low fml. (*My* because Aud’s out of the market FHL.)

So like we did a 180 degree change we did darker make up, lots of bronze and black. Also spent like 900 years deciding what to wear that is not CUTE. Ironic when i think what show we’re gonna be on again.
Then we looked liddat la. Which is err…. not every different FOL.
So Aud and i were like analyzing what went wrong. How come no matter how hard we try we still couldn’t have that sizzling vibes like Maiko and Lie.
“FTS. I think it’s our face la.”
“Yea, we’re too cute to be hot.”
“Yea i think so too. Why are we so cute FTS.”
“Seriously. Being so cute sucks!”
We wanted to look liddis T_________T
And liddis T_________T
Srsly. being so cute sucks.
Maiko looks hot while being cute. T_T
Hao can anyone anyhow do any face and look good? T____T
Including this T_______T
Anyway, these are the gyaru who came for the make over that day.
Our reader (who responded to us through twitter on the first day) came for the makeover oso <3 That was Christy, Jac, Renae and Joey. They very brave they came make-up less. And you are about to regret not coming that day because the Gyaru Transformation is… sugoi desu wtf.
Lie impart to us her secret to a smaller face.
We started filming in the hotel room. Maiko was the make up sensei who taught us step by step hao to look pretty.
Aud and i oredi had make up on so we just…. camwhored. -_-
Filming goes on. There were a lot of oooooh and uwaaaaaa going on too!
The girls were really pleasantly shocked to see their own transformation.
ARE YOU READY TO SEE?
This is a Before pic.
This is Joey. She looks sooooooo cute and 100% gyaru nao.
Christy i think looks like a very pretty ulzzang instead. She has a Korean face!
Let you see again the Before pic.
And then Lie and Maiko were also Santarina kept throwing Dolly Winks and other make up stuff to all the girls JEALOUS ANOT! But Aud and i didn’t get because we’re the “Big Sister” FOL T_T.
We also got our pressies, which is a furry scarf for me and monster fur leg warmer for aud <3.
Which i then brought to Europe <3
*tries Maiko and Lie pose
The final scene was in front of Pavilion. Everyone was damn happy and touched.
Then suddenly… Maiko cried.
Not knowing what to do, i turned around to look for help (or a sign to tell me what to do), and saw Lie…. also cried.
I really think it’s sort of like a natural requirement for Japanese ladies to be able to tear under appropriate circumstances. Every single time i part with my host family, my host moms confirm will cry and wave and cry again and wave again one. Then i’ll be like not knowing what to do. So i also cried.
Wiping tears, Maiko and Lie spoke to the camera about how moved they are to see us transform, and for them to spread gyaru love all the way from Japan to Malaysia, and that the girls here are also gambatte embrace this whole gyaru culture, and it’s a really touching experience. Even though we have met each other less than 24 hours ago.
And then aud and i also became teary-eyed fol.
Seriously it really made is want to ganbatte and create a gyaru circle here since we know they are also a lot of aspiring trend-setters who want to be in touch with Japanese make-up and fashion. (Also so that next time we meet Lie and Maiko we got face to tell them we kept it up la.) Plus on the show, they sort of already created for us on the spot, and it is called…
Foruchizu Gyaru Sa.
For nao la. I mean if we want to do it seriously, we’d also need some help from you girls. So if you have any ideas or opinion, or want to volunteer to help, pls drop a comment. 😀
