JOHNNIE WALKER® Black Circuit Lounge Penang 2012


Great news for all the party goers, Johnnie Walker Black Circuit Lounge is going to hit Penang on 4 August 2012! Oh yes can't wait to party back in my hometown!

JOHNNIE WALKER® is the world’s number one whisky brand, enjoyed by people in almost 200 countries around the world. Since the time of founder, John Walker, it has been closely associated with the concept of personal progress. A combination of consumer insight, determination and commercial astuteness enabled three pioneering generations of Walker men to grow the small grocery store founded
in 1820 into an international whisky business selling stylish, authentic, iconic brands.

This progressive and innovative approach has continued into the 21st century and in 2005 JOHNNIE WALKER® entered a partner agreement with the McLaren Formula 1™ team. Today JOHNNIE WALKER® is recognised as an icon of personal progress, as an international, high-status, sophisticated and dynamic brand. The Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1™ team closely matches these characteristics and provides a unique and exciting platform for engaging with today’s consumers.

This is the second time since 2011 that JOHNNIE WALKER® will be holding the Black Circuit Lounge in Penang and the British theme also fits perfectly with the hype and excitement generated over the 2012 London Olympics. This highly anticipated Black Circuit Lounge – Great Britain will be held at the Penang Turf Club, which is the most historic racecourse in the country, having been built by the British in 1864. The VIP race party will feature a number of British-skewed highlights, from headline British DJ Benji Boko rocking the night with a British-inspired set list, to iconic and instantly recognisable British decor and even tea-inspired cocktails to debut at the returning Black Flavour Lab mixology bar.

Penang – The JOHNNIE WALKER® Black Circuit Lounge VIP race party will make a welcome return to Penang on 4 August, this time with a distinctly British edge. And if that doesn’t get your motor jump-started, the hottest race party in Malaysia will also welcome the presence of motorsports royalty with two-time Formula 1™ World Champion and JOHNNIE WALKER® Responsible Drinking Ambassador Mika Häkkinen. The award-winning World’s No.1 Scotch whisky and global partner of the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes™ Formula 1™ team since 2005 will be celebrating their “home” race in Silverstone, Great Britain while commemorating Penang’s rich historical heritage with the British.
Date: 4 August 2012
Venue: Penang Turf Club Main Tote Hall
Time: 8.00pm
Hosts: Oli Pettigrew & Hannah Tan
DJs: Djane Geri, Ray Ray, Benji Boko & DJ Direct
Other Attractions: Two-time World Champion and Johnnie Walker Responsible Drinking Ambassador Mika Hakkinen



In keeping with the British theme, the JOHNNIE WALKER® Black Circuit Lounge will feature rising star and headliner Benji Boko from the UK to raise the temperature at the party with a decidedly British set list. Benji has been getting some excellent recommendations from industry luminaries like Rob Da Bank, DJ Yoda, Zane Lowe and Nightmares On Wax amongst others. The inimitable Benji is instantly recognizable from his huge Afro and his Purple Monkey alter-ego, and has shared the big stage with artists like Calvin Harris, Justice, Deadmau5, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Annie Mac and Plump Djs at huge events like Bestival, Glastonbury, Rockness, V Festival and at iconic locations like Ibiza. His debut artist album, “Beats, Treats and Everything Unique”, was released last year and features heavyweights Maxi Jazz from Faithless and Ricky Rankin from Roots Manuva. He has done remixes for Fatboy Slim, Little Dragon, DJ Shadow, Beardyman, Chromeo and is sponsored by Adidas.

Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Tint

Look what i just gotten few days ago? It's Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Tint!

Photobucket


Rimmel London Malaysia has just recently launched their new luscious lip color - 1000 Kisses Lip Tint. The lips tint are designed to give your lips a royal flush of intense, vibrant colour that stays on duty and ready for action for hours - leaving no trace, so your kisses never tell. The speedy two-step application delivers a fabulously flawless finish that is totally on trend and just begs to be kissed. A precision pen-tip delivers the mistake-free colour you're looking for. A caring balm seals the deal, giving lips the extra moisturizing they've been waiting for. 



Famous for her luscious pout, Rimmel face and fashionista favourite Georgia May Jagger is the obvious choice to star in our new 1000 Kisses television and print campaign. The non-transfer, kiss-proof formula gives lips a royal flush of intense, vibrant colour that stays on duty for up to 12 hours, leaving no trace, so your kisses never tell.   
Reinvent your lip-look each day with the fashion-forward palette of fourteen statement shades. Get the London look.


I got myself two colors, in Perpetual Plum and Unstoppable Red. My first impression was... is this a marker pen? Seriously, it really smells like it but a lil hit of strawberry but more like chemical smell to me. It's a 2 in 1 pen with lip tint and a clear lip balm for extra moisture. Because lip tint can be very dry for your lips.

Tadaa! Full glossy lips. Just like applying a lip gloss! it's sooooo glossy.


This product is worth-trying. If your going out for a meal/drinks and don't want to worry about having to re-apply your lip product throughout the evening. Or, like the product suggests you plan on kissing 1000 times. That's the best lip balm you could have. The price are pretty affordable too.

Viva La Divas' Day Out

Last weekend, i was giving this great opportunity to join Capital FM88.9 on their recent events - Viva La Diva Tour. Capital FM took ten listeners and their friends on the ride of their life, giving them the ultimate “Diva” experience by joining Viva La Diva Tour. As a blogger, i would love to transform myself into a little Diva for one day and enjoy myself with the rest of the Divas.

I'm Diva Povy

The day began pretty early, everyone was gathered at the first meeting stop - Tropicana City, where Capital FM office is. Light breakfast were served and greeting session by Capital FM's crew, Asha Gill and Liang. We were separated into several groups and each group led a Capital FM's announcer.

“Whilst we do champion community causes and women’s rights at Capital FM, we feel it is also every woman’s right to have a little fun and pampering every now and then. With Viva La Diva, she can completely kick back her heels and enjoy her much-deserved “me time” all day long,” said Lynette Ow, General Manager, Capital FM.
Then we started our day by getting into the exclusive Capital FM chauffeur-driven MPVs driving us all day long. As well as those lucky “Divas” and the entire crew of Capital FM’s celebrity presenters, in total of nine Capital FM MPVs. Capital FM Viva La Diva Tour and its taken over Kuala Lumpur by storm. Causing mild traffic jams, the glamorous entourage made its stops all over Klang Valley as Capital FM gave its listeners an opportunity to live a day in the life of a “Diva”.
