So yeah, I was late. My show only ended at 10pm so by the time I got rid of the make up, put my suit on and erm, drove to Pavilion KL where the event was being held in the Jaguar Showroom, it was almost 10.30pm.
Still, the August Man (Facebook: Twitter) team, led by editor Rubin Khoo, was still kind enough to keep me a framed picture of the cover (which you can see from my previous post), a gift from Thomas Pink and a beautiful trophy.
Because I was late, I had missed a lot of the events. There was still drinks and music, though. Most of the other Men of the Year – including Bob Chua, Hans Isaac and Ivan Lam (and Tricia Yeoh, one woman!) – had left by then unfortunately, but I managed to say hi to Joe Flizzow, who I heard performed as well, before he left. I think he looks best on the cover, that guy’s got attitude!
So I did the next best thing, I took pictures of the nice photos the August Man team put up for all the Men of the Year (and one woman). Well, I didn’t get all the pics, I didn’t want to look too, umm, syiok sendiri lah. Shy only right. Here are some shots:
Of course, the was one other picture to be taken. I actually didn’t want to take it (no, really!) but Choon asked me too. Bad Choon. Now I look like the ultimate camwhore … camwhoring with myself! Aiyo, weren’t we just talking about syiok sendiri?
Oh well, tak pe lah. This is my blog. Like I’ve always said, if I don’t plug myself, who will? Oh wait, August Man just did. Thanks so much guys, really honoured!
