I haven't been in the highest spirits lately, partially because of the incident in the last post.
Amongst other things, there's also a colleague, someone whom i've seen grown since ORD, who is leaving the company. It is funny how people perceive the company will do things to deprive them during the last month and vice versa.
Another problem is there are several MC requests that i have to turn down because of prior assignments. The real downer is for one of the available nights, i was close to getting the deal of hosting an incentive dinner when the client decided to check out my website and got a little, er.....overwhelmed (put off, if i may say) by my pictures. I guess she must be referring to the pole-dance ones.
She was quick to ask the event company to provide her someone else because she needed someone simpler and more corporate!
My first reaction was........maybe I should look at revamping my website to reflect a more corporate image. I don't realise how many may have been "frightened" by my big hair, skimpy clothes and thick make-up. (website should come with a warning---not for the faint hearted)
But on second thoughts, why don't people think that if I can conquer the tasks of being all these, especially pole dancing, shouldn't they think that i can handle their simpleton event?
Anyway, no hard feelings, still cannot get over the perceptions people form. I have chosen to portray this image and i think it should stay...... can't please everyone. Do Ah Lians actually have websites and maintain blogs?
Another thing i don't get it, people are there for the few days of seminar, why not let them let there hair down on this dinner party? Why still must be corporate and serious?
Anyway, lastly, i just wanna share how pole dancing lifts me spiritually. Last night at pole class, about 5 of us advance students were practising for some upcoming performances. It was our first time practising group sychro moves and we would do like 4 to 5 invert tricks at one go. We have to climb high up the pole and at every bar of the song we will change pose, while still up the pole. We videoed it and there were 2 clear evidences. #1. I was having a ball of a time, one of of the few moments in recent times you can hear me chuckle heartily. #2. I was clearly one of the stronger ones in class (and being the oldest--yeah, the next younger one is like at least 9 years younger than me ok, youngest is 16 years younger than me, fwah, i good or what...hahahaha) because at every transition move, the rest will drop a few inches to a feet until by the time they reach the last trick they are almost at the floor....hahaha, it was hilarious.
Oh and before i forget, there is a request to post my (er....not mine actually) latest attempt of Butter cream cake, this time over a sugee.
This requester has now request for a "Princess cake" for her baby's birthday....wah too much, she really thinks I am pro...........hahaha. i told her i will open a Me cafe next to Le cafe
Ok, I feel better now. Now off to practice more pole dancing................wee
