Last month, I have finally gathered my courage and enroll for a course (Modeling PRO) in Amber Chia Academy. It has been my childhood ambition and although taking this course doesn’t guarantee that I can become a model, at least I can learn more and take this as an experience (syok sendiri pun boleh lah).

Needless to say, I have became RM 2,800 poorer but I believe this will be a worthwhile experience. I’m currently very worry though on how I’m able to walk in a 5 inch heel. I only wear high heels when there are wedding dinners or Chinese New Year and my high heels are only 1 inch. I foresee that I will go through a lot of pain during this 6 weeks course hahaha *fingers crossed*

Below is the sneak peek of what I’m going to learn in this 6 weeks. The classes have only 1 shift which is 7pm – 9.30pm every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I was hoping they have day classes though :/
