CNOS2 FINALS!!

It's been a week since CNOS2 Finals and I am still pretty much overwhelmed by everything. 
All the challenges that we had to deliver week after week, staying up late to edit pictures & videos, refreshing the CNOS website constantly for score updates.. finally it has all ended! So back to the point of this post, last Saturday was the finals (Challenge 5) and it was a 'Live' challenge!

The 1st part of our Challenge 5 was to do a makeover for ourselves! All the contestants were given a $10 BeadStreet Cash Voucher to purchase accessories for the 'makeover'!

My awesome Team 9 for Challenge 4!!


And then the 2nd part of Challenge 5 was to do a.. CATWALK.
DENG DENG DENG.
Like seriously... when I received the paper that day on the challenge details and saw the word CATWALK... I really wanted to *FACEPALM* myself la cuz I know nuts above catwalk, what's more my heels were freaking high!! I don't want to fall and embarrass myself :(

And alot of people expected me to do well in this since I am a blogshop model and naturally stereotyped that I should know how to do a catwalk. But a blogshop model is SOOOO DIFFERENT from a runway model?

DON I SEE YOU CHEERING SO LOUDLY FOR ME. So GAN DONG!!!

OMG WHAT AN EXPERIENCE.
I was so damn nervous and the whole walk felt so long and scary. 
Yknow that kinda feeling.. like I want this whole catwalk to faster end but yet, I want to enjoy this 'glorious' moment of mine for as long as I can? Haha how contradicting! It's not like everyday you get to do a catwalk on a red carpet with so many pairs of eyes looking at you right! Somemore you're walking alone so everyone's attention is just ON YOU. Feel the adrenaline rush man!

While waiting for the scores to be tallied, some contestants performed!
So jelly of them, wished I could sing as well as them. Mehh

All of us singing 'Marry You' together! I am hiding at the back in case you're wondering.

THEN IT WAS RESULTS TIME!!!

I was the winner of Challenge 4 - Cathay Decoded Race!
Wouldn't have been possible without my awesome teammies (Huixin and Tiffany Yong) so I split my prize with them!

IMG_1279
I was also the 2nd Runner Up!! :D

IMG_1281
Don is the 1st Runner Up!! CONGRATS!

Okay so after the 1st runner up... it should be the announcing of the Grand Winner right?
So I was sitting on my seat, literally lepak mode on since the winner cannot be me anymore. I didn't really catch what the host was saying and suddenly I heard my name again... like.. "SHENNY!!!!" damn loudly.
And I was there on my seat stoning, jaws dropped, wondering to myself how can I be the 3rd winner and also the 1st winner? 
 
So anyway I just went up to receive my prize in my very blur state!
IMG_1283
See! Even picture also blur lol.
Qiuqiu was the one presenting me with the prize and she's so cute! She was like "Ehh how do I put this ah??? I think like this la hor?" lol.

IMG_1284
Okay so anyway, I then realised I won the title of 'OVERNIGHT SENSATION' which means my online viewerships went up the most significant compared to the other contestants. *flicks hair* bahahahaha

Aiya just damn happy!!! Cuz this is so totally unexpected!! :D

IMG_1288
And CONGRATS JOEY!! She's the winner of this CNOS2 Competition!! ;)

Can't wait for it to be up! It will be around July/August! That's like another 3-4 months! Quite a long wait but NVM because... Good things are worth waiting for ;) lol lol


So I am really thankful for this opportunity! I have gained alot from this competition. I can edit videos much better now (so maybe I'll do more vlogs after exams!!) and also to blog/vlog under time constraint. That aside, I've also made alot of worthy friends from this competition! Even though it's a competition but we are all so friendly towards one another, helping each other out! :)

Not forgetting!! My friends who have helped me along the way. Those who have helped me RT my tweets, thumbs up for my youtube videos, voted for me!! You know who you are and I am so thankful to have you guys as my friends *hearts*

Okay last one. To my old & new supporters (haha sounds weird la I still don't believe I have fans) but okay anyway, thank you to each and everyone of you too for continuously reading this space, leaving encouraging comments and stuff :) It really makes me happy to see that my blog hits been increasing :)

THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO HAVE MADE THIS POSSIBLE.
ALSO TO CINELEISURE AND NUFFNANG FOR ORGANISING THIS!!
