NAPBAS: Useless Fashion is Not Useless

December 21, 2011 in Happenings / The Stinky Cheese

Ok so this is the NAPBAS post finally!!

Maybe you’re sick of hearing me say thank you ad nauseam already (but i haven’t got sick of hearing you congratulate me so keep them coming wtf #megusta) so here are just shitloads of photos from the NAPBAS night.

So. Where do i start.

I guess all my bribes did work after all lol.

Honestly i didn’t really expect to win, or rather i just didn’t really think about it, because the last time i expected something to happen it did not, so i was really all zen about it wtf. But after the night my friends were all like “I knew you were gonna win, i didn’t even bother voting for you.”


Now i know why i won’t win the next NAPBAS. Assholes.

So i was probably the most stressed out person on finding an outfit for the night. I mean if i totally screw up my outfit and also didn’t win the award everyone’s like no wonder she didn’t win it and if i did win everyone’s like WHY DID SHE WIN?! Thanks a lot, troll dresscode.

I only really looked for an outfit during the last week, and DECIDED on one 3 days before the award. Considering i was given more than a month to prepare that’s really damn last minute.


This was my initial outfit but it somehow looked way too casual. Just anyhow put something together and there i was thinking a fashion blogger should be able to conjure something up from her wardrobe without purposely looking for a new dress. Plus i really didn’t want it to be a, you know, dress, dress.

Nvm. I was wrong wtf.

Sorry to sound so long winded. Pictures!



This was #addiction and i in the hotel room after doing our hair. And completely no-make. Looks like homeless wtf. Homeless with good hair.


After 30 minutes. God bless make up and fashion.

Aud and i dressed up all MODE-style. Once  again #addcition power! We found an okay dress each, and then it’s just accessorizing. Both my Boa Fur Coat and her Fur Wrap are from EMODA, sponsored by


With shoes. Freaking hate Aud for having the exact hair color i wanted. She did her super awesome sticker extension at Number 76Style and it looks SOOO good on her i jelly.




My awesome stylist Dejima san from Number 76style, who wanted me go to over one day earlier before the award to do color + hair treatment, and also try out the styling. Super perfectionist love him max.


Amy, Hikkey (both 76Style staff) , Addiction and me.



When i knew that 76Style was sponsoring the NAPBAS night  and doing styling for some 50 people i was like NOOOOO Dejima san is MINE and Audrey was like NOOOOOO Hikkey is MINE.

They were ours lol. <3


Went to QiuQiu’s room and camwhore with the Singaporean bloggers. Next 10 pix or so stolen from QiuQiu.









Xiaxue looks fugly here but i just HAVE TO post this pic because i was trying to camho with QiuQiu and then Xiaxue ngeh ngeh want to photobomb us so she brought this on herself HAHAHHAH



Time to get down to the ballroom!


A special counter for the finalists! #Specialtreatment



Omg look who’s that!



Then also met lots and lots of familiar faces and new faces. Took so so many photos. And these are photos taken from various sources!


Haze, KY (Best Food Blog Finalist), me and Kenny.


All Singaporean mei nv and one Malaysian!



Nuffie Rachel



Huiwen from Azorias



Reader from Singapore Speishi, who always say wanna meet me and i think now she meet me until sien wtf.


Jamie also likes fur.


Simon who always supported me during the voting. And some past competitions. <3

With reader Ginny!


Camho in the toilet wtf.


These two readers were so happy to see me, one said she came all the way from Ipoh just so she can support me WHY YOU ALL SO NICE TELL ME *cuts off and gives appendix as repayment*



Me, Aud and Xiaxue.


The award started immediately! That’s me pokerfacing when they said next award is Best Fashion Blog.

Then i started recording it with my iPhone because all the finalists’ BIG ASS FACES will appear on the BIG ASS screen and that’s like freaking cool i’ve never seen my face on such a big screen before!!!!

So when they annouced “Cheeserland” i literally puked cereal also hence the abrupt stop at the end WTF.

And then i gingerly stood up and TRIPPED. TWICE. Fml.



Pinky literally had to assist me stand up and walk me to the stage WTF.

and the rest is history.





That’s a picture of Wendy smiling ever so happily for me, and QiuQiu taking photos for me <3333




Still excited every time i look at this.


I am very unashamed to say that i was SO HAPPY. I really didn’t expect to win it.

I even prepared this picture to blog if i didn’t win wtf:



And then Xiaxue was a little emo about not winning lifestyle but when they announced her name, she teared on the spot and before she went on stage she said to me (all wet-eyed) “WTF is wrong with me (crying?!?)” lol.

And she won two awards in a row.

First the Most Influential Blog. Which i think she TRULY deserves because she IS influential. She could probably convince a zombie to eat carrots if she want. And i also suspect that part of the reasons why i won is because of her, because while pulling for votes she asked her readers to vote for me as well.  So that’s how influential she is, ok? Get over it.

Then Region’s Best Blog. I said this before. But just by how much she has defined blogging in the past 8 years, and no one ever come as close to how much blogging has changed and evolve because of this one person. To make sure she doesn’t win this again Nuffnang should just make a THE Legendary Blog For The Next 20 Years in next NAPBAS and call it a day. or 20 years. WTF.







ALL the finalists lol.


QiuQiu also compiled this for us cutting everyone else off lol




Man i know you guys are tired of scrolling now but i’m not done yet!!!!!

I can’t help but be long winded again, bear with me. Am reminiscing this so much. Here’s a bit of history.



I was sort of Kenny’s “date” two years ago because we both didn’t have one wtf. He won Best Entertainment Blog Award (yea trophy is his not mine wtf) and was so happy for him.

We sort of lost touch for the past year because he was too busy and too far etc, but I will be forever thankful to him because if you were to ask how Cheeserland became famous, this man is responsible for this popular crap blog you are reading right now, with just one entry he wrote back in 2006.


And today he walked me down the aisle.



We walked down the aisle together.




Ok we are both Award Winning bloggers. He bagged Best Micro Blog Award. And look how happy i was. KEJU ARE YOU PROUD OF ME???


A picture with Aud during the last NAPBAS event. WTF is this we thought it’s a picture from another parellel universe. I was the Paddle Pop Princess and she was the Cream Cake Princess wtf. #shallow

We met a few times before, but always were very polite to each other (after we became good friends she said she thought i was damn lansi the first time she met me wtf).

We left each other nice comments on blogs after that, but never really became close, not even after the HK DIsneyland trip together. Until dunno when (we discussed many times before but no one has a solid conclusion), we suddenly realized that we are meant to be soulmates (wtf don’t jelly Angela i’m soulmate number 2 you are 1).


And look at us now. She is my #addiction. MECCHA AISHITERU WTF!


Two years ago i had to queue after many many excited fans and take turn to take a picture with her and that was the only picture we had together.


This year we sat on the same table, next to each other, received awards together and cried together.


Then also meet awesome people i didn’t meet two years ago like QiuQiu.

I don’t even know how all these happened. But it’s freaking amazing.


Thank you Nuffnang, you make magic happen.

  32. Rebekah says:

    Y u no look worse with age? Seriously, 2 years ago you were pretty, but now your stunning!

  33. Jia Hui says:

    I read your post until so touched and need to do a bit of reminiscing also. Seriously, I started reading your blog because Kenny Sia blogged about you once and I also dunno how long since then but it felt forever already. Didn’t realise it was since 2006 (5 years!!). I really enjoyed your style of writing and how you always put pieces of clothing together. As a lot of readers have now said, you have proven that your fashion is no longer useless fashion. It’s award-winning fashion!!

    You also made me read 9gag lo. You always post memes on your facebook page then one day, I was curious myself and since then 9gag took my soul T___T

    Congrats once again! Though you may think that xiaxue helped you in votes, I would still think that you deserved the award no matter what! 🙂

  34. Hachi says:

    Congratulations again and again and again! You totally deserved this~ I’m a big fan and you totally deserved this win 🙂
