Tips/strategy to be the Prom King/Queen I wasn't the one!!!! Pls read the entry to the end.

As I have been touting last week, I had a faculty dinner last Friday. Well, it wasn't a great one. *sigh*

The setting was grand! Yet it seems like the participation/attendance was a bit poor, plus I feel like only certain people are being 'celebrated'...esp. those researchers (in agreement with the Uni's aim to become an RU).

Anyway, I promise, next year is gonna be my year!!!

Well, that nite... as encouraged by my fellow bloggers frens, I wore my bluish purple dress as u could see in the pix...

It's nice to see most of the faculty members put extra effort to look their best, not to mention some fashion victim :P

I arrived early with DrWan (as scheduled in the tentative) and took a seat next to the former Deputy Dean & Dr Harinder.

We chitchat and I didn't get up of my seat until the event ended, although part of me really wanted to go around and say hi to some people.

I believe that's the reason I wasn't noticed, besides the lacking in terms of my contribution to the faculty.

Wak Lempo, the Jamu Nano guy.

Joget and saturday nite fever by the admin team.

Hey, I don't mind not getting the Prom Queen title, as I don't wanna be paired with the narcisstic Prom King. Hahaha.
But the Prom Queen wore a dress with a black inner, which I think is only half-elegant.

So, the tips/strategies to make yourself in the limelight...

1. Wear something nice, though might seem overdone.
Don't be afraid to apply a 5-inch make-up or fake eyelashes. Wear bling-blings as much as possible. It's better than u appear as the sloppy one.

2. Arrive a bit late, so others notice how well u dress up.
This was my biggest mistake. So, lessons learnt.

3. Else, u might have to walk around, chitchatting with others.
Although u might have to excuse urself from the table, go mad cam-whoring. Ignore others if they are staring sternly at u.

4. If no.3 makes u look desperate, tone it down by doing a performance.
This is an indirect way to be in the limelight. Nevertheless, make sure u don't fool urself with silly performance like a clown.

5. If no.4 is not possible (bcoz u have stage fright or u just don't possess the talents to sing/act), do something significant for the Faculty, that'll make u go up the stage. E.g book publication, research, gila research, research lagi, lagi-lagi research...etc. Hahaha

Hahaha. This particularly applies to my workplace. Very the poyo!

Hmmm....As I said, next year is gonna be my year.
I mean, not to be a Prom Queen, but I'll go up the stage for something I can be proud of.

  6. bOnDa,
    i think, pakai inner atau sarung lengan will make u look semi-formal, hence semi-elegant.
    so, x cukup proper la.

    dia pakai dress tali halus, tapi utk cover badan, dia match dgn black inner.
