Estee Lauder Model Search 2009 by ari7474

Just a few days ago.. some of my best mates decided to climb Mount Kinabalu. They invited me but I on the other hand, had a trip to Tanjung Jara in Terengganu. 

Now, if you were me.. which would you go? 

a) To strain my muscles and climb the mountain. 

b) To spend 3 days with the winners of the Estee Lauder Model Search 2009 competition.


EXACTLY! I chose “b” as well coz it’s the noble thing to do 😉


So.. Ladies and gentlemen, let me show you Tg Jara. 

Tg Jara

Nice kan? 

Wrong.. It’s Damn Nice.. Hahahhaa…


Anyway, lets not waste time and get straight to the best part. The shooting of the models. 

Before that, I’d like to introduce the models to you. 

Ok.. I didnt do the standard interview like how the press used to interview me because I’m famous and all (hahahaa….) but instead, I tried to get to know the real them. How they are when not in front of the camera. Now thats really hard for someone shy and modest but handsome like me but yeah.. someone’s gotta do it right?


Anyway, we’ll start with the winner for Category A and Sony’s Most Photo Perfect.. Jennifer Pedersen.

Okay.. There’s no doubt she’s very pretty and photogenic but the thing is.. I find her very cute too. The way she carries herself. She’s very cheeky and playful. Very down to earth. I think, that was why the judges fell in love with her. Her character. In other words.. very funny yet when in front of the camera, she could pull off any look she wants. Superb.


Here’s some snaps of Jennifer that I took. Sure you all say nice..

I have plenty more nice shots but cannot laa show all right? Hehehe…


Next one is.. Carol. The Category B winner. (Cat B is for contestant above 30yrs old)


Carol is a yoga instructor and She’s 38 but she looks like she’s 28. She’s soooo nice in person. In fact, too nice. You can never hear her talk bad about anything. Always smiling and cheerful. I think her 2 kids would be very proud of their Hot Mama.. Wohooo….


carol 2


And last but not least, it’s Eclipse’s Most Elegant and Andrew’s Models Most Promising Catwalk winner… Juanita.

Who happen to also be Malaysia’s Dreamgirl 2 winner.

This lady here is a no nonsense type of girl. She likes to get things done properly and she’s very competitive. Very serious with her work and she pulled off some high fashion super model kinda pose. She’ll make it big as a model.

“Ey Juanita.. when you’re in Milan or Paris or New York shooting.. dont forget me yaa.. ”





The thing is.. these ladies here.. they’re all very nice people. Nice people with good looks. Just like me except I’m the male version laa.. hahaha.. 

Me and the models

This picture was taken by Helen Pedersen. Jennifer’s mom. She’s also very terrer with the camera. 

So..? Whaddaya think? Nice right..? 

The models.. the location.. the images.. the photographer.. all very nice rite..

Aww.. gee.. Ok..ok.. enough compliments please.. I’m blushing already.. Hahahahaa…

Well.. thats it lah folks.. I have more but I need to sleep and go to work tomorrow. 

Will story somemore next time yee.. 

But as usual, before I end my very smart story.. I’d like to show you 1 of my fave picture during the trip.

Very niceeeee… 

Enjoy and have a good nite.. Oh.. and if you’re at work.. dont sleep lah.. hehehe..

Ciao Peeps..

    Ladybeattles: Kak.. Nice kan the last picture? I took it before we left laa. Most of the pictures yang you saw was pure raw files.. It was made to be flat. I prefer to do what I want with it rather than leave it to the cam. Anyway, kerja I tak habis lagi laa. I still havent submitted the shots yet. Ni semua rough editing aje.
    Oh yaa.. Kak Monica kirim salam jugak.. hahahaa…
