Welcome to my blog!

If you are in for an adventure paired with lengthy, quirky, brutal honest thoughts then you are in the right place.

My name is Arisa and was a cosplayer for 12 years in Malaysia before settling down in Kyoto, Japan. Exploring Japan full time has been a long time dream of mine, so let's explore it together!

Maybank GO Ahead Challenge 2014

Before i drag you guys into this, you MUST watch this video. After this i am pretty sure you would want to watch the previous years challenges, don't say i didn't warn ya :-P

Are you guys ready for this year's Maybank GO Ahead Challenge 2014 (#MGAC2014)? Because I am! Never did knew about this interesting program offered by Maybank to seek out young, potential future business candidates to join their company.
Just recently Maybank officially launched their 2014 program which i was so honoured to be part of such a big international event, got to meet so many people from different backgrounds and countries.

Credits to Reiko for helping me take this cute photo of Yuki and I against their Hunger Games's inspired backdrop. Pretty cool concept for a reality TV show.

Great to see our country is finally catching up with so many things like international reality TV shows such as Asia Next Top Model. Do hope they have Project Runway Asia, would so join that in a heartbeat. But guess that won't happen so soon *fingers crossed* but if they do, someone please let me know cuz i am pretty outdated when it comes to stuff like these XD

Apparently this Maybank GO Ahead Challenge has been around for about 2 years already and also didn't know that an old freelance friend of mine was one of the winners for last year's challenge!
Congratulations to you and your amazing team Jane, after watching the videos of the whole program this really has opened my eyes to see how we are supposed to be prepared for the real world.

Found an old photo of me and Jane during of freelancing year as Event girls. The photo was taken in a club so the lighting is horrible (kinda expected lol). Guess it is time we bid those jobs farewell and move on to a new chapter in life. 
Chapter 3: Adulthood

No more comfort zone people, i personally think this is a very good platform for students who studies business and finance if you want to step into the big scale market. Having Maybank one of the biggest banking companies in the world as a platform would be a great first step for you in this industry.

So it's an opportunity of a lifetime not to be missed, if you are students of fresh graduates you can still sign up because closing date is on the 30th April, you still have 2 days more to send in your applications. Plus it's INTERNATIONAL, not only the prizes are super attractive but this is also for a chance to show the world #WhatYouAreMadeOf.
This challenge is not only open to Malaysians but there will be also participating countries like Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Brunei, China, Hong Kong, United Kingdom, United States of America.

I would sign up for this if i can but nah...my goal is't to pursue this line and same goes to Asia Next Top Model. So many temptations but fashion and costuming is my passion (it's already SET! Lol)
Okay, enough about me rambling stuff and here i get straight to the important points of the program for this year.
