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.

I arch all the way backwards til my head touches the floor and continue singing the chorus and this move usually reaps some "coo-ing" from the audience.
Tonight I did 2 of these shows, by the time I reached the second venue I was huffing and puffing, and it didn't help that the entire week I was tired out from class and other jobs AND a nasty flu bug was plagueing the office, infecting everyone.
So by the time I did this stunt and tried to get up on my knees, I found myself experiencing a litle of a "black out" and I ended up falling on my side....haha, I think it was quite comical but this time I heard a louder yet sympathetic "ooh".
As an experience showgirl, as always, I quickly went into a split and garnered some applause for that. As I continued to pull through a good show, some of the people were still too stunned, while another portion had little clue what happened....I think that included the event company....lol!
Ah well, anyways, faitugue again!, Its time someone else do mor---e work...I hope u are reading this.........hmm.....need i say mor-----e?

There's one more that happened in Vegas, here's the winner.
It just goes to show that pole dancing for fitness, or for art is getting extremely popular. Ladies who wish to give it a try can always enrol in my classes. Check up the updated courses. But please, please don't bring Felix's (Ms Pole Dance Australia 06 & 08) video or picture and tell me you want to be like that (not that I can teach u to be like any of the other Pole Supertsars or pioneers) ! Haha, that woman is immortal!

Anyway got better, and I can't help but have to jump on the pole today already......well, until it hurt again! bleah!

Informed Fren that I going back to car to retrieve items.
Fren asked if I needed company as was so late, I said no need and went on my own.
As soon as I got hold of the phone, it rang and fren's # displayed.
Prentending to be someone else, fren whispered in a gently "cheena" tone " Eh eh, you reach home already ah? I miss you very much already u know? Is your husband home already?"......
Not sure if you can guess it; Fren is pretending that I have an illicit relationship and now sneaking out of the house to make a call to the lover..........this is Fren's way of checking that I am safe & sound

I recalled last year I had a rather amusing encounter with "muscly boobies" when having my mammories checked.
This year, Doctor boobies did not make any remark, instead, the female assistant when lending a hand to clean and dress me up asked shyly about my naval piercing....you know the usual "pain or not huh?" So I had a little giggly & whispery conversation with her behind the curtain (while putting on my tops) and suggested she performs the "pinching" test to see if she could endure the pain at the naval, explaining that different people have different threshold at the belly button.
So when i got out of the consulation room to wait for payment, this female assistant told the other 2 at the counter that I've got a nice naval ring and requested that I show them. I gamely lifted my T slightly and they were coo-ing, admiring and asking why I did it. They nodded in approval when I explained I did belly dancing and the topic quickly evolved to who likes what kind of dance genre. Before you know it, the word "pole dancing" popped and I miss no opportunity in showing all my pole dancing photos in my little Nokia phone. By now even the matronly head of admin got out of her cubicle, and was squinting hard and peering into my phone from the furthest end.
Well, as you have guessed it, I proudly introduced my ACRO POLATES studio as they quizzed about the fees, if it was hard to learn, can they dance for husbands etc etc.......hahaha. It was a really funny how everything was brought to an abrupt end when suddenly Doctor Boobies opened his door to find everyone trying fast to scatter to get back to their work! Hahaha cute!

For the past months, I've not only been practising safe, but always impose safe warm ups and pratices for pole students so they do not go thru (or minimise) my experiences..Potential imjuries are what most teachers warn you about.
But last night I sustained this injury from a show. No thanks to the event company, for wanting to save a couple of dollars want to use their OWN set-up people. The darn people are so dumb to place the pole on uneven parts (I suspect it's the joint between 2 stage platforms and you know how they never completely match when the modular stages are pieced together). From the start I did a spin, they ALL could see how unstable the pole platform was and no one did anything. Worse still, can play my music salah, wrong cue for this and that! UURGH! At one part I had to say INTO the microphone "next track" when obvious hand gestures were not understood.
Thankfully I did not fall, no one did, but I must have used so much force to execute some inverts on a rocky pole. Next time I'll just relac, won't "pia" (try) so hard to do a good show if you don't take care of my safety, you understand?
PLEASE! Performing pole is a serious and dangerous thing! Not a masak masak (play play) act like illusion acts, pretend to be dangerous but actually safe like anything. Pole really needs real kang-hu. If I injured already who going to help you do the rest of your cheap show?

The last version was edited due to bad positioning of the video camera. Because most of the action up the pole was covered, I had to edit with the rehearsal.
Thankfully some kind soul got in on the handphone and sent it to me.....wee I'm really really pleased cos this the first time I performed a handspring
This is completely raw, unedited . Yay!

We planned it for some 4 to 5 months together, meeting regularly some 2 to 3 times, weekly, on the plan, model, the name, the numbers, site recce......etc. But she later pulled out of the scheme, on the pretext she didn't want to "hurt" her exsting bread & butter. Now I heard she tells people she went on a trip and returned to find out I've "started" it on my own!
Makes it sound like I have this immaculate conception and given birth in ONE month! Woah! hahahaha......

It must have been more than 6 years ago I last watched a play, then in the old drama centre, and I must say I'm impressed with how the local theatres have matured.
Of course the pole dance segment contributed to the climax of the many climaxes of the evening and overall i would say I enjoyed the play very much even though I was there alone.
So, go and catch it attain information from Zebra Crossing's website. The play was made even more enjoyable by veteran Loke Loo Pin's (remember her from Tripple 9?) segment of "because he liked to look at it", a nostalgic look at an elderly woman's sexual awakening was simply hilarious yet touching!
