I panicked as this long-time clinic I've been patronising since a teenager was closing in an hour's time and is usually very very crowded, with patients spilling out to the void deck.
After hanging up the phone upon checking operations hour since it's last day of the year and everyone's on half day, I zipped down to the clinic as quickly as possible, but to my surprise & relief, there were only 3 waiting patients including me. Happily, I was in and out of the place in half and hour.
Later I told spider friend how lucky I was, first time I went to the clinic half empty, his reply "of course what, nobody needs MC today! Everyone's well (to party)!" Hahahaha...He's damn funny and damn right la
I've been wanting to upload my birthday bash pictures, but the enthusaistic photographer took about one thousand four hundred pictures ranging from 1.5MBto 3.2MB and I have a hard time selecting let alone resizing them down to loadable pics.
So be patient!
It was a month of pole draught, few classes and pole practices as everyone has other agendas-- some like me, working extra hard or some, but others like Daniel, playing hard, he's on a month-long leave--disgusting.
So it was really refreshing when we had our "farewell 2008" pole practice last night. Good to know that I've gotten even stronger
Have a blessed new year, everyone! See u in 2009

This was the first time Ah Boy travelled in the little red car...when he was rescued from AVA . He stuck out his head not to enjoy the view, he had wanted to escape as he had no clue what was going on. Midway through the journey, lone driver had to get off the car and wind up window ( you probably ask....yes it was manual :p)

Today, clearly one event company couldn't quite handle the task and thought it was better to set up a meeting between the end client, my dance choreographer and myself to discuss details. We usually would not acede to such requests before confirming the assignment, had we (dancer and me) not been *bracing ourselves for the potential (further) economic downturn* that may affect the number of events we can participate in.
It must have been a long time since I last had to deal with arrogant clients. I don't understand clients who think that just because they are paying for 'some dancers and singers', they are paying some less cleverer people than say an accoutant, lawyer or a banker? The reason why we are dancers, singers, musician, model.etc simply because we have a skill or talent that you may not possess, or even if you do, you have no guts to make a career out of it. SO, when someone else does, please respect that they too need to be compensated for it...their time, skill, practices, & rehearsals...in a nutshell honing that skill! We are not making tons of commission selling Lehman bonds to retirees, we suffer bad throats and injure ligaments from our crafts ok!
It's one thing about negotiation and the other thing about talking down to you. At one point I wanted to wring some necks, but 'loon' (swallow) , why? because of **
Anyway sorry for the rant, I just PMS!!! #%&*
That being said, not all clients are like that, some are really sweet. Tomorow 2 of them buying me my birthday lunch. ....for that, I'm gonna chill!

So please pardon me if you dun see it/them here. In fact I have to apologise that after a few days, some of the tags came off the packaging and I dun know who gave me what, but importantly, you came and that's most important!
So here they are, I've divided them into categories :
BEAUTY, THERAPY & FASHION
SOME INTERESTING STUFF
Idy is so sweet to spot this pole dancing cuff links and got them for me. You tilt them in different angle and actually see the girls dancing! Interesting eh! I think she got it from the net, right Idy? Because I really wanted them when I saw them! Thanks
Er....who gave me this LING-A-REE ah?
Last but not least, the good souls of DnM took pains to piece this piece of art for me---40 condoms, accompanied with the message, for another 40 more good years!
The cake is a present from students, thanks Kelly for coordinating it...BUTTER CREAM! But i only had time for a small slide :(
Anyway, some of the photos are ready, so Part III of the birthday bash will be PICTURES.....................

Thank you girls! So nice!

When I arrived I was worried with what I have because the organizers had hired costumes and make-up artists to make them look "hell" and what I though was my "smokey" look terribly paled in comparison to them.
So I had the artist touch me up, but I really really didn't want to look as hideous as the rest so I kept reminding him (the artist) that I want to be a pretty witch...in other words, I want to be a Vamp, not Vampire.
In contrast, this was how Rico, my co-host looked!

I was attended by a soft-spoken therapist, Mandy, whom from her accent, I can easily identify as a therapist from China. She did a great job and before I knew it, I did not just sign up the eye detox, but was also coaxed into purchasing a "LD" package (took me a while to understand her "Ella Tdi" meant "Lymphatic Drainage") which I thought, was really quite calming and soothing. It felt great after as I walked out of the basement unit at Cuppage Plaza.
This morning I was there for a treatment #2 and was attended by the same therapist. With her girlishly sweet voice, she first ran me through the steps like "cleansing", "exfoliating" etc.....I igonored as I wanted to rest, PLUS I had wanted to escape the possibility of her hard-selling further treatments/products, and I was right, she was saying some ampoule...blah blah would be good for me....I didn't reply, pretending to be asleep.
Since I was NOT really sleeping, I noticed that she had skipped a large number of steps in the lympahtic drainage procedures. Before I knew it, she said it was over!!!!!
So I responded in Mandarin..."Over? How come you didn't do the.......(I used my hands to gesticulate a certain zig-zag movements that she did the first time on my forehead).....sheepishly and in quick defense, she replied "Have! you were sleeping!", and she broke out a nervous laughter.
I replied coldly "oh! hmm......Don't know how come I still feel very heavy on my forehead hor". She quickly sat down again and massaged my head with a towel and pretended to help me ease my headache"...lol
It's time like that that you wish you can tell them you work for CASE or something! And I need to think of another method to escape the hard-selling tactic without going into the "sleeping mode"

Just in front of the beach I observed a group of people taking videos and pictures of a pretty brunette in diving/swim wear and I just passed it off as a fashion shoot.
Then i suddenly occured to me that the newest Lara Croft, Alison Carroll is in town to promote some gaming thing X08.
So I checked with the minder and I was right. Although I was no big fan of gaming, I DO like Lara Croft, way back from the time when Angelina Jolie took the role, so I seized the opportunity to ask for a picture taken with her, even though I know I look sh*t (I was still ill remember?) She gamely obliged, and she was very sweet about it. I liked her already....
She even posed solo for me. She's all smiley (and very friendly) when we are chatting but when come to posing, she will cut this "mean" look.
Later she came over to chat more and she was even so sweet to talk to Ah Boy. Unfortuntately for Ah Boy, he's still not used to strangers and even snarled a little. OMG! For that Ms gorgeous had to apologize.. oops, and I responded "Ah Boy..this is Lara Croft you know!"....haha, as if he would understand.
But Alison, for being so kind, you have Suzie as your new fan and I shall be looking out for you!
Anyway here's a video of my new hero.
