AMBER CHIA ACADEMY, SPECIALISING IN, GUESS WHAT, MODELLING, HELD ITS FIRST GRADAUTION CEREMONY LAST MAY 6 AT ONE UTAMA SHOPPING MALL.
IT WAS A HISTORIC OCCASION AS NOT ONLY WAS THE GRADUATION THE FIRST IN THE YOUNG HISTORY OF AMBER CHIA ACADEMY, I ALSO WON BEST DRESSED MAN! OF COURSE THIS SHOULD NOT COME AS A SURPRISE AS NO MAN OR WOMAN EXCEPT THE GODS AND GODDESSES, ARE BETTER DRESSED THAN ME.
Kee Hua Chee was Best Dressed Man and Gillian Hung was Best Dressed Woman. No one came close as we the bestest!
Kee Hua Chee won Best Dressed Man. Amber Chia presented prize to him
Gillian Hung won Best Dressed Woman
WHAT WAS SURPRISING; I WAS RELATIVELY LOW-KEY IN BLACK AS I WAS MOURNING THE DEATH OF MY 13 YEAR OLD ADOPTED FRENCH SO N DEDIONE KEE WHO DIED ON 4 MAY AND ASCENDED TO HEAVEN TO SIT AT BUDDHA'S FEET AND WAIT FOR ME TO JOIN HIM SO WE COULD WORSHIP BUDDHA FOR ETERNITY. OR HE COULD BE AT THE FEET OF JESUS CHRIST NOW, WAITING FOR ME TO JOIN HIM SO WE COULD WORSHIP THE LORD TILL THE END OF ETERNITY.

Amber Chia joining in as she should since this was her event
Even baby Ashton wanted to be part of the action
The stage was as dramatic and eye catching as the people pictured here
CONSIDERING DEDIONE KEE DIED ONLY 3 DAYS BEFORE AMBER CHIA'S FIRST GRADUATION, I WAS IN NO MOOD TO MAKE MERRY BUT SINCE THE SUPERMODEL IS A DEAR FRIEND, I WORE ALL BLACK AND WENT WITH THOMAS TEH THE PILOT.

Winning Best Dressed Male was not on my mind as I arrived and sat meekly to watch the fashion show and models which were almost world class. The models were good and the top ones were superb as they were trained by Amber Chia and catwalk guru Benjamin Toong. I guess they had to be good as the lousy ones would not have graduated and even if they scraped through, would be put on the backburner somewhere deep in the dark recesses of back stage!
The fashion show!
What a bod! Kurt Chin was awarded Best Male Model and his body had plenty to do with the judges' decision!
This is the proof. Kurt Chin's victory was a walkover
Pink legs so pretty
Don't you love the curly wurly thingies?
Avant garde couture by Carven Ong
Keith Kee Couture. Even the lining is a work of art~!
And the brides wore coloured veils?
Very sensual and eye catching, like dance of the 7 veils
High drama and getting into a cab may pose problems
Thank God it was only an umbrella! But her hairdo poses the same problem getting in and out of taxis
If her hair doesn't get her attention, nothing will
What a good view
The wiggiest of them all
The guy looked like a porcelain doll
With that ass and 9-inch heels, this must be Benjamin Toon the catwalk guru
Getting his certificate
Getting the prize from Canon the best camera in town
