16th April 2017 was one of the most memorable days in my life. This is not an exaggeration! When I was younger, I always imagined myself on stage during the Star Awards. I would stand there holding my award and proceed to say “I would like to thank my parents, my fans…” Sadly, Singapore ain’t Hollywood so my dream never materialized.
But that very day, I got to tell this story to these four actors, in which Romeo, Felicia and Elvin said “SO CUTE” simultaneously. I had to pinch myself to remind myself that I wasn’t dreaming. To all my overseas friends, the Star Awards is something like the Emmys, Singapore version. Before the Star Awards, I attended a cozy meet and greet in which I met Romeo Tan, Carrie Wong, Felicia Chin and Elvin Ng. They are local actors here in Singapore, with years of acting experience under their belt. I practically grew up watching Elvin Ng and Felicia Chin. 🙂
We had an ice breaker game, charades, with the celebrities. After the game, Romeo immediately said “any bloggers here?” I literally froze. A million thoughts raced across my mind, but the main one was, “is he going to kick me out?” So I sheepishly raised my hand and to my surprise, Romeo turned to Carrie and said, “I had a feeling she’s a blogger. She has a blogger look.”
I blinked and thought, “is this real life?!?” A celebrity just said I had a blogger look. Wow. I was on cloud nine for the rest of the day. 😛 I didn’t share more about my blog with the celebs because time was of the essence and there was a Q&A session with them as well.
Now, enjoy the photos from the Star Awards 2017. Considering that I was seated in the circle seats, my camera managed to capture the actors quite clearly. 🙂

Korean actor Jang Hyuk presented the award to Romeo. Huge congrats to Romeo for bringing home not one, but two awards!
Since I was going to an award show, I took the chance to doll up (because I’m vain like that HAHA). I wanted to put falsies and go all out with my eye makeup but I was rushing for time so I couldn’t do a super elaborate eyeshadow look. However, I did manage to find the time to pop by Crescendo Hairdressing to get a blowout. LOVE IT. I felt like I stepped out a magazine ad. Before the awards show, I hung out with these two lovely ladies, Elizabeth and Faith. We had a great time doing photoshoots outside Mediacorp and at the Style by Style Vibes Cafe.
My hair looks amazing from the back as well. Shout out to Carol for making me feel like a million bucks.
I shall end this post with a quote from Lady Gaga.
“I’ve always been famous, it’s just no one knew it yet.”
― Lady Gaga
for the opportunity to meet the celebs.
