Making Headlines and Turning Heads


For KL Times we lucked out in getting Dewan Bahasa + Pustaka as a location. It truly has an ambience of an established Newsroom and is historical in it’s own right for being the bastion of school textbooks and local literature. Kiki in a devastating cheongsam walks into the newsroom and Andrew screws up the courage to ask her out. One of our favourite scenes!

Modern Armour


We wanted to make sure when the girls meet up; you can really see their individual styles. In the outdoor scene as we see the rivalry between Meg and Kiki escalates, we dressed them in ‘armoury’. Pay attention to Meg’s leather creation from Tengku Syahmi which is the very dress that won him young designer of the year at MIFA in 2009.

Like eating Custard in a Toliet


Soft, sweet and pungent at the same time- a Durian makes you work to get to it and lingers long after you’ve eaten in various body gasses. We always thought how mortifying it is to meet a guy that you have a crush on in an unflattering situation. What can be worse than squatting at the side of the street stuffing your face full of durian?
