Sometimes I am truly unexpected

ASSALAMUALAIKUM...

Indeed. As how this post is entitled. I can sometimes be unexpected. But, there will always be reasons for that. But this time around's was really out of my expectation. See, I myself still am surprised with what was happened to me few weeks back.

I could still remember, it was all started during my study week for my Semester 4's final examination. I started to get bored, naah..that's not the exact word. I was rather gotten enough of revising on that day. So I went (as usual again) roaming around Facebook updating my status and commenting on my lovely friends' statuses. Suddenly... on my 'Home' page of my Facebook, I saw this...

I am an ardent fan of this skincare brand. I started using it in 2008 when I was still studying in Malacca Matriculation College up until now. Yeah...the longest period of using a skincare product so far. It was indeed because of the goodness it provided. That was why I followed them on Facebook by liking the page so much so that I would be able to update or even ask anything regarding the products or skincare regime.

When i first saw the ads about the contest, I was very much intrigued by the prize. LOL. RM500 worth of their products, who would say NO? plus, it involved only 2 main steps; upload a photo and create a catchphrase on why should one be chosen to be the ambassador of the product. While looking at my Simple products that I neatly arranged on the rack in my rented house's room (that were almost finished been used), I dubiously sent my application online.

I sent my photo together with this catchphrase:

I am a simple girl who leads a simple life. Entitled to my hectic schedule as a full time student, it does not stop me from enjoying my life to bits. I would love to show to other people out there that life has so much more to offer. I've been using Simple products since 2008 and since then I had never change to other products. The hesitation I had on the first day of buying the products had finally carved a huge smile upon my face now. For me, simplicity is always the best. Why bother to paint your lips red or blush your cheek pink when a simple smile can brighten up the day? In life, it's not just about how perfect you looked to others yet what matters is how are you willing to accept your imperfection perfectly and be grateful of it. Simple products teach me to be moderate and if I were to be chosen to represent this product, I would love to let others share the moderation too. :)

The contest promised the top 10 finalists RM500 worth of products. Only one winner would be chosen from the top 10 to win the lifetime's opportunity of being the Simple Products Facebook Ambassador and win a year supply of the brand. I didn't aim too much to win the contest. If I were to win the RM500 products, that would be enough. Still, that seemed to be a dream too. LOL


I was in Putrajaya, the final day of my LO work when I checked my FB page and saw that my name was listed as the top 10 finalists and that I won the RM500 worth of Simple products and that I had to attend a Hi-tea event on 4th June. I was like, "whatttttttt??????". Indeed, I was happy to win the products. :)




There you go, on 4th of June, I went to Bangsar to attend the Hi-tea event. i was among the earliest to arrive. Went there with my sister and all of us were wearing white as that was the dress code. It was held at the F by the Buffalo Kitchen, Bangsar. When I first stepped into the place, I was welcomed by a girl and a guy both in white. They smiled and welcomed me and asked me to fill in the form before the girl, Eileen handed me a questionnaire where there was 10 questions about Simple products on. I was surprised. gotcha!

The event was simple yet many inputs were received by all of us. There was a beauty talk by a dermatologist, Dr. Nazrin, a home facial spa's demo by Simple's beautician, high-tea off course, prize giving and photo session. It was really great to meet other contestants in person. They were really nice and friendly and gorgeous! I felt like a celebrity for a while. HAHA. That was all because, the photographers of the event captured our photos almost every single minute. When I was walking to get my food, when I was filling in the registration form, when I was eating..bla..bla..bla.. and every single time the flash was on me, I laughed and blushed. ohmai. awkward. LOL.

Here are some of the photos during the event.






products I won. alhamdulillah.
The winner of the grand prize (a year supply of Simple products and becoming the ambassador of Simple Facebook page) has just been announced few days ago. The winner was Jessie, who was indeed a lovely and gorgeous 23 years old girl. Congrats Jessie. happy for you.

I am thankful for the opportunity. I am now understand that risk and challenges are there for us to take. Try not to be in your comfort zone for too long. Discover and venture anything proper and possible out there so that you'll learn better about life. :)
