Cindy Wins Malaysian Dreamgirl Season 1

I just got back from 1-Utama for the Malaysian Dreamgirl Finale and I'm so tired after a long day of work but I'm going to quickly write something about the finale.

Just about almost everyone who's anyone was there... well okay maybe I'm exaggerating a little but a lot of great people were there.

Pinkpau for example.
some of my buddies from Mindshareand I even met a few people whom I think read my blog including this girl.
Heck even Ming was down from Singapore and went for it.

The Finale started with a really good opening with all 11 of the 12 finalists walking out on to the stage. Their presence was met with a loud cheer from the audience that ranged all around the stage and all the way up to the 3rd and 4th floor of 1-Utama.

I loved the way it started.. the music, the contestants gave the stage so much energy and life.

Not to mention the many many photographers there. Heck I felt so small with my compact digicam.

I mean check out this dude's camera.
It's almost as long as my...

Anyway, the event program included some fashion shows with one by one of the girls coming out to showcase the many designer outfits.

I thought Nadia looked great
and Ringo here... damn she was so hot that night if you guys could only have seen it in person.

Fast forward to the elimination which was what everyone that night was waiting for.

Here's how it went... everyone basically thought that Hanis was going to win the event because heck... she had an entire group of supporters all screaming for her every time she appeared. I'm sure both Adeline and Cindy had their fair share of supporters but perhaps they weren't as vocal as Hanis's .

Elaine Daly first decided to announce the 2nd runner up of Malaysian Dreamgirl and it turned out to be... HANIS.

I could see the number of shocked faces in the crowd and people like Mehlin over here didn't exactly have the biggest smile on her face :P
Hanis herself was shocked to bits.

She tried her very best to hide her disappointment but as she was walking back to Cindy and Adeline, her face showed.. she was disappointed and upset that she didn't win.

I took a look around and even at the group of Hanis supporters standing right beside me. They were all suddenly silent with a disappointed look on their face.
Then it came the time to decide the winner of Malaysian Dreamgirl, either Adeline or Cindy. Elaine then called out Adeline as the 1st runner up and Cindy as the winner of Malaysian Dreamgirl.

I didn't see any immediate burst of joy from Cindy, though it did come in a few minutes later. My guess was that she was if anything, surprised and as shocked as anyone could ever get.Even up to the point they gave her the big key to the Nissan Latio she had won, I didn't think the whole truth of the matter had sunk in properly to her yet.But eventually she opened up and she was filled with joy and with good reason. She was going to walk home with RM20,000, a Nissan Latio worth RM100,000, some other gifts here and there and be on the cover of Newman magazine.

Congratulations to Cindy for being the first Malaysian Dreamgirl.
Some people say that Cindy's famous father had a lot to do with her success. Well in my opinion, whether or not he helped in voting or even with all those phone conversations he had with her... that is one helluva Dad!

To the other girls, especially to my buddy Ringo... don't be disheartened, that's 12 of you who made it.. out of the 500 people who auditioned. You were all winners since the first episode.

And to the people at Capxion Media, congratulations on making such a successful online reality TV series. I'm gonna miss watching MDG every Thursday and Saturday.

DAMN SAD OK!! I wanted hanis to win so bad I voted damn alot as well!! Have to stop calling and SMS-ing people this month already!!!! And you should see how people on the first floor BOO-ed at Cindy ok... GAH!! Talking about that makes me wanna bomb!! And me and my sisters want to bash cindy's father up!! But he's been hiding the entire night!! >:(

Aronil said...

for what it's worth.. congrats to Cindy. On her end I think it'll be terrible to realise that winning is cause of her dad. But i do think that either Jay or Hanis should've won. They have that special spark on camera.

Jasonmumbles said...

First and foremost, can ask those web guys to upload their videos on time and not whenever they like?

Freaking frustrating that the videos are supposed to be up on Thursday and Saturday but ended up on Friday and Sunday. Or uploading 3 parts and another 3 parts the following day.

Not punctual at all.

Jayne said...

Hi Tim :) I saw you walk pass me..But so shy to talk to you la >"< >"< >"< *regret regret*

summore you surrounded by few people...

ishK!!!

-shygal-

pinkpau said...

hahaha MEHLIN!

pamsong said...

Me wishes Hanis win but... you're right. Cindy's got a great dad. Then again, if she won cos of him, it's her loss. Not Hanis'.

KY said...

don't bite tim, MEHLIN!

Mayz said...

Hey, i was there, thanks to you (well, Nuffnang la). Thanx a lot for the 2 invites. I saw you and Boss Ming and a lot other recognisable bloggers. But, aiyo, cannot la, juz too shy and don't know what to say exactly.. so didn't say hi (-_-). Anyway, thanx again for giving me the opportunity to be so upclose to the runway and all ;)

Samantha said...

i knew she'd win! whoohoo!!!

~g@LfLow3RcH*c~ said...

I knew she would win just because of her daddy...daddy's little girl =p!

Poor Hanis...she's the most deserving of the 3...perhaps her mommy should have spent more money voting for her!

RealGunners said...

paiseh paiseh.. but actually.. what is this MDG thing? is it only available on the net? couldn't find it in TV.. but looking at the barrage of photos u guys posted in so many blogs.. hmm.. tsk tsk... mayb the photos are not doing them justice or mayb i have a weird taste.. wasn't attracted to anyone of them...

R said...

Cindy is Daddy's Dreamgirl, so NOT Malaysian Dreamgirl. If anything, her attitude is a nightmare. There must be a flaw somewhere in this show to allow someone who is clearly not well liked by the majority to win. Either her daddy is a millionaire or the total voter base must be too small. That just goes to show that money can buy anything.

Cheng Chun said...

I had to leave when they called out Hanis as the second runner up. Not surprised with Cindy though.

Anyway, it was nice seeing you Boss. Though I think you were like, "Hmmmmmmmmmm. Who is that idiot standing up there this Tock is asking me to wave to." Hahahhaha.

Remember me or not.

Shaolin said...

You not supposed to reveal winner until after Thursday when the episode comes out la bodohhhh!

Oh well!

SlowCatchUpKuan said...

I knew it i knew it!

Belle said...

*copy paste realgunners display picture* ENOUGH SAID! WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
successful? boss are you sure?

SUKI said...

yeah.. i agree tat we shudn't blame cindy's dad.. he is just giving full support for her.. i believe every parent will do the same.. but just depends on how much they afford to do..

basically.. i think we shud blame mdg.. such a lousy money making event..
it shudn't be 100% based on votes.. they just wan to earn money.. n' the victim is contestant's frens and family.. whom compete like mad in sending sms..

§pinzer said...

lol @ romeeeeeoooo!!

JuLJuL said...

I'm not surprised she won. I kinda expected it. Heck, I even voted for her. Haha. Pity Hanis even though I think she deserved it. At least let her be the 1st runner up ba. I'm gonna miss watching MDG too~

Jess said...

ahem am I the last person watching Msia to NOT know who Cindy's dad is??? Some famous guy issit??

RealGunners said...

hahaha i'm honoured to have someone copy paste my display pic :D

synical said...

I already had the stinking feeling that Hanis wouldn't win (though would be nice if she did), which is why I didn't bother going.

Probably should've, just to join the crowd in booing Cindy. Ha ha.

Clare said...

BOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That was a total let down! Though I wasn't there (was stuck somewhere in the jam in Perak), my chipmunk gave me a live commentary on the phone.

Yeah, this show is best known as Malaysian Dreambitch. No no no...should be (like someone suggested above), Daddy's Dreamgirl!

This show is a total failure!

Samantha said...

it would've been great if ringo was in adeline's seat really :/

anyway i want a dad like cindy's! or at least in my next life? :)))

sbd18 said...

for the finale i think voting should not have been used as a decider...would have been better if they opened it up with fellow models or celebrities to decide...but thts just my 2 cents worth...

oh well...wanted hanis or jay to win...congrats cindy though think ya didn't deserve it! :(

debra fong said...

I'll still root for Hanis.
And thanks for the invites:D
It was good meeting you in person.

Go Nuffnang!
: ) : )

Miss C said...

Tim Tim! It was F.U.N bumping into you during a "toilet trip" with the girls before the show! hahaha... Didnt get to catch up with ya after, but i received your Congratulations mail, and THANK YOU for your support (in whatever ways/forms) all along ya~ Hope to bump into you agen soon! lolz.. (:

sara* said...

the outcome was so dissapointing =( Nvm..i think Hanis can go a long way in the future..

n i k k i said...

Cindy- Can't catwalk, her pictures aren't as great as the others like Hanis or Jay!
Jay,Hanis,Fiqa should be top 3!!!
Very disappointing! I watched the whole MDG to see Cindy win? DAMN! So NOT a dreamgirl. Malu je

faz. said...

i still cant believe CINDY won :/ like wth. cant believe she would even make it to the top 3. and adeline too :( so weird. lol. eventhough i'm still stuck in episode 15 now, LOL, bcause apparently the damn connection here is so f slow! but yea. very unexpected.

was really hoping for HANIS TO WIN! 2nd runner up? *SIGH. but anyways, it ws a great show :)
