It was my honor to be given this exclusive access to the Charity Fashion Show with Celebrities by Queensbay Mall. Photos showing the set up of the venue before the event started.


It was my pleasure to have taken some photos with the celebrities- Debbie Goh (a former Miss Malaysia Chinese International 1998 and a Hong Kong TVB artiste) and Nadia Heng (Miss World Malaysia 2010). The celebrities were very nice and down to earth. It was so awkward to have my url signed on the board but nevertheless, it was an eye opening experience for me.
