I'm totally shagged - I'm even working weekends for the Singapore Jewel Fest. Today's supposed to be my off day but me being me (nice, that is), decided to take over Nic's shift cuz he's got something on. Shagged, I am, but I'm loving every single bit of it.
We had the Preview on the 23rd. After Nic changed into his outfit for that night, he walked towards us flashing his boyish, I-know-I-look-good smile. We were all dressed up and rushing around preparing for the event. During the event, I ate, drank, mingled with the people while standing on duty in my snuggly corner of the pavilion. Slacking? No. Multitasking, I'd call it. :) I think we all looked our best that night... We just forgot to take pictures! What a pity.
We ended our opening day of the jewel fest with a Spring/Summer cocktail party. Did the same ol' rushing about, eating and drinking doubly the amount the previous night. We had a runway show featuring some of the jewellery, and the Mouawad Fantasy Bra set stole the show. That bra-thong-garter set costs more than $4mil. It made jaws drop, mine did. I drank so much I was basically floating around, trying not to screw up. I remember talking to ...... hmm, a guy as we had a drink together - the longest conversation we've ever had, but I was prolly babbling a whole lotta crap. Darnnit. Received some compliments, but the one that made me really, really happy was when Liz commented on my capabilities. I didn't see that coming at all.
This whole thing is freaking tiring, but the satisfaction after the event is really undescribable. I think that's why people are in this line - for the satisfaction after slogging their guts out. Fyi, they've been planning for this jewel fest for almost a year, a month after 2007 Jewel Fest ended.
The next private event is the opening of the Autumn/Winter collection on Wednesday. Another round of partying! woooo!!
Call to check if I'm on duty... Come by and say 'hi' :)
Group mates, I'll see you Monday!
