First and Last American Prom

15th of May, 2009

my first and last american prom

theme: dancing in the moonlight

DSC00407_1536x1152

prom was awesome and i really had fun because for once i truly enjoyed myself and was totally comfortable with the whole environment, the dance floor, the people, myself mostly. the DJ kicked ass! he was the bomb haha, absolutely great great music. i danced while the night lasted and when it all came to an end, i smiled for a very long time.

it would have been better if i went with a date or maybe my boyfriend(that is if i had one). but it’s alright. maybe next time with someone else. all i know is my american prom is a night to remember.

so, a few days before prom i rehearsed my makeup and hair which i was quite reluctant to, but given that i wanna save money and not wanna end up looking like a disaster at prom, i had to not be a lazy ass. so, with the help of youtube and the internet, the newbie me tried to put on full coverage makeup. you know the whole package; foundation, eyeshadow, blush, mascara, falsies and gloss. sounds easy but trust me it isn’t. my sis and bestie would know this is completely true. i am not exaggerating.

DSC09939_1536x1152

as you can see i tried brown eyeshadow on one eye and light blue on the other. was trying to decide which would complement my eye colour and dress to make both ‘pop’. and you know i’m very indecisive too especially when it comes to petty things like this.

and then i experimented if it would be cool to enhance my eye makeup with blue eyeshadow on my bottom lid.

DSC09952_1536x1152

i suddenly realized oops my dress is white you smart ass. so i cleverly took my white shirt to ‘fake’ my dress. too troublesome to put it on especially since it’s off white and long, plus it has no zip. nah ah… i’ll save the dress for the day itself.

DSC00061_1536x1152

omg speaking of hair. i tried so many kind of hairstyles. firstly, i curled my thick and long hair which took me about one hour and then i played around with it. put it up, pull it down, sideways this that. and especially since i have a square and big face, i look ridiculous with all my hair up. but if i let it down, my beautiful earring wouldn’t be visible. see? decisions decisions.

DSC00037_1536x1152

it’s a little blur cos i forgot to snap with flash. anyway, i tried having it all down too.

DSC09828_1536x1152

okay this picture is misleading. i’m not actually that fair, it’s the natural lighting cos i’m near the window and my hair is suppose to be black but somehow it doesn’t seem like it here. anyway, i kinda got fed up and just asked my dad’s opinion. he said he liked this one so i ended up with something quite similar.

DSC09976_1536x1152

oh yeah and i also tried on falsies, two different types. took a few tries to successfully put them on cos all this while when i had them on for performances, my sis did them for me. aww. the more i stare, i look like a perverted goldfish who is sadly not gold in this picture.

DSC00078_1536x1152

i know i look stoned haha. so it was friday and i signed myself out cos i’m 18 now so i can do that. most of the girls were dismissed either by themselves or by their parent at 12-ish too. they had appointments for manicure, pedicure, hair and makeup while i rode home with norma. i went to my room and quickly did my toenails and fingernails. waited for them to dry and then started doing my eye makeup as you can see in this picture i’m wearing my pajamas which my sis has too! then i curled my hair and put on my dress followed by my $10 4 inch heels and then continued doing the rest of my hair.

DSC00373_1536x1152

i did my own hair! a lil messy but i like it.

DSC00374_1536x1152

are you proud of me b2? lol

DSC00269_1536x1152

i love my heels!

DSC00416_1536x1152

since i don’t have a date, my host parents bought a corsage for me. how sweet. and this is the clutch i borrowed from my host mum. classic looking black clutch.

DSC00088_1536x1152

took a picture with bill before leaving for norma’s house cos she will be driving me to prom. it was so ‘buggy’ cos it’s spring and all these black flies were buzzing around i didn’t bother to stand straight. i hate flies!!!

DSC00108_1536x1152

on the way to prom. i had no idea how was it going to turn out cos usually in malaysia when we have parties/formal event, we have loads of food, big round tables and performances to watch. when i asked my friends, they all said “well, you just talk, take photos and dance”. and i was like “no food?”

DSC00114_1536x1152

ready, all set for the night.

DSC00138_1536x1152

my mum asked why take pictures under the pine tree? haha, well everyone takes a photo or shall i say photos preferably with greenery in the background. i think it’s cos it makes everyone pop. unless you wear green, but then it’ll complement your dress. and it’s kinda like tradition. to be honest, i don’t really know why.

DSC00139_1536x1152

us girls. five different colours. i was the only white that night. yeah i thought so cos white is usually reserved for weddings. but i like white colour hehe.

DSC00121_1536x1152

DSC00128_1536x1152

DSC00163_1536x1152

melisa steadman who always waves at me in school haha.

DSC00164_1536x1152 copy

then they played slow songs and you see people leaving the dance floor and i was one of them. and few people sitting at the tables pathetically and i was one of them. it was kinda sad for a moment you know not having a date/boyfriend and all and the song didn’t help at all. then greg came up to me and asked me for a dance.

DSC00165_1536x1152

here, he was showing me how to slow dance and it was kinda difficult as he was way taller but we were just getting started. and then later on after i got comfortable, it was great. the whole time i stepped on top of his shoes. so basically, who’s dancing? lol…my mummy used to do that to me too awww

DSC00167_1536x1152

oops my bad.

DSC00168_1536x1152

DSC00232_1536x1152

i think this was taken during one of the slow dances. poor normz was so sad looking i was worried she’s gonna tear up. but it’s okay, she has a bf now. woahh haha.

DSC00250_1536x1152

laurianne labelle, she has the most beautiful name ever. i can’t remember the rest. she told us once during psychology class when we were discussing about dreams.

DSC00256_1536x1152

everyone agreed prom this year was a blast much better than last year. i am glad!

DSC00244_1536x1152

girls staring at the dance floor.

DSC00258_1536x1152

greg changed the mode on the camera so it turned out like this. but the night ended with a slow number and it was sweet. some of the songs they played throughout the night which i could still recall are don’t stop believing, everytime we touch, you and me, pokerface, right round and etc. and then we were suppose to go to denny’s for after prom party but normz went with her friend to party and somehow she drove to the wrong place so her friend ended up bringing me home since it’s too late to get to denny’s and i didn’t feel like joining them for their party. it was almost 1 am when i got home. freakin exhausted but still managed to camwhore a whole lot. i was so proud of myself for successfully doing my makeup nicely and everything else! hahaha *pats self*

DSC00294_1536x1152
