Hey guys! Happy weekend. How you all doing? Most of you might heard that last night (Saturday) was Influence Asia 2017. It's an award event where influencers and content creater are celebrate. It was held at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. There were performances by Jessica Jung, Thelioncityboy, Tulus, Noo Phuoc Thinh, Defam and Project E.A.R. Prominent international influencers also made an appearance to present the awards were Carli Bybel, Shannon Harris, Itsjudytime, Sririta Jensen, Lily May Mac and Vice.
I actually wanted to vlog during the event but I brought the wrong sd card which was too slow for my compact camera. So instead I took some pictures. The pictures are placed chronological order. It was my first time to Influence Asia 2017 (all thanks to Ernest Ng and Dankhooproductions) so I didn't know what to except. I actually took some insta videos from the start of the event and then follow up with pictures on my camera. Hence I couldn't take everyone's picture and I have to admit I'm a bit bias to team Malaysia since I'm Malaysian. But hey, enjoy the pictures and my comments from the event.

They dominated every category they were nominated for. Am super proud of their achievement, they totally deserved it with all of the hard work they put in each video. Also, Jin made a very touching speech where he thanked his mom and wife along with the other OG youtuber in Malaysia (Dankhooproductions, The Ming Thing and The Grim Film)
The crowd of the event
Performance by Noo Phuoc Thinh
Suddenly fan girls started to crowd where I was seated at. It was then I knew who was the final performer.
Never would I ever thought I could have watch Jessica Jung live. She was amazing!
Wish I could say the same of the host who snag a photo with Jessica while all of us awkwardly watch
Felt very motivated after the event to work harder. No knows maybe one day, I might be able to share the stage with them. A girl can always dream right? Anyways, nothing is impossible.
