Yes, blame it on my new toy (birthday present I got)!.....a DVD handycam. So now I go around with it and forget about taking photos, so no new pictures to update! Haven't learn how to upload videos yet.

Besides, need lots of time to upload all these stuff and I'm still in my busiet period. And the good news is...I have a gut feel the Dog Year is gonna be great for me....I already have good bookings and assignments lined up for the new year Woo..hoo!! Besides, the chinese character "wang wang" for dog barking also means double prosperity. Besides the Dog, God is also super good to me.

Here's wishing all those whom i love "WANG WANG" in the new year.

My latest show. Wah, got abs from side view if you see very closely! Hee !

Can you imagine? I did some 10 events last week and i have nothing to update? Boo-hoo. That's because it was just plain crazy shuttling from one venue to another, beating the massive x'mas jam and trying to reach each and every show on time, let alone have time to snap pictures.

Every year come this time, I'm extremely stressed out I keep having nightmares, nightmares such as forgeting to bring my costume, my make-up ruined, I overslept. Then either I wake up every hour to check the clock, or suddenly jolt from bed, breaking out in cold sweat thinking if i had missed an event. Anyway, with all these stress, I'm thankful I still get to do them. I think I will sweat more if all my shows are done by my pirated copies. Hahaha!

I used to have this kind of similar nighmares during exams. Like reaching the exam halls with no stationary, or not being able to locate the hall until the exam is almost over, or arrive at the right hall but realise they have started the exam an hour ago and you have the wrong time table, or more realistically, you never study for the subject. Haha, doesn't that happen all the time? That is why i never go for those post-graduate nonsense, those 15 years of education (17 including kindergarten, but that one no nightmare lah) exams and torture IS enough.

Ok folks, in case i don't update again, MERRY X'MAS to all those who read, especially those who leave comments, Ms 3a Gurl, MS Sin, Ms 9898 anonymous (btw, ms 9898, next time cannot show you photos b4 i blog, wa lau can complain old news some more, you try bogging lah, take 2 hours to upload those pictures you know) , and my sister who has an injured toe in Tokyo. Party lots and belly dance, exotic dance or just eat log cakes and be merry!!

Time to update some Shanghai pictures during my last trip, so that after that I can remove them from my hard drive. Thanks blogspot, this is brilliant, or esle my hard drive will be so full to store all these photos. Call me primitive, but I don't how else to load them on external hard drive, frienster, yahoo pictures etc, .....I shall just stick to blogging.
Shopping in Shanghai

The day market (xiang yang shi chang) versus high end shopping (heng long guang chang-I think).
The former has become such a harrass to go. The minute you drop off the taxi from opposite side of the street, the 'copy' touts will rush towards you and stalk you all the way, trying to show you their albums featuring the copy goods, use their bodies to navigate you to their stalls and you just want to 'siam' to avoid body contact with them until it's like playing "lau ying zhuo xiao ji" (eagle catch little chicks). Their up market shopping quite chic, I think in some ways more so then ours. I saw this cinderella skirt so pretty. Branded one, but can't remember which brand, but think cost thousand over sing dollars.

We feel so violated by the touts so decided to depart the day market and find food. While walking, saw some Chinese students leaving school. I always like to check out other countries' school uniforms, they are always so different, sometimes nicer.

While walking to find makan, see what I found? Fwah, one of my favourite dessert-butter cream cone. The cream very very buttery and I like! Thought I would buy it for dessert later but finished before i reached the next junction! When in primary school, my dad used to pick me from school then proceed to Monk's Hill to pick my sister who used to have her German language class there (her 3rd language, she the smart one), I never fail to buy at least 2 of these cones from the canteen. Eat one while waiting for her and save the second til later...yum.I can't find these anymore but people always tell me have, when I ask them, they always give you this labyrinth direction until you think it's non existential. So anyone who knows please tell me in simple terms ok?

After that, we (me and DJ-that's him in the picture beckoning to settle after walking up and down undecidedly which eatery to go) walked through this little backlane full of small eateries.
So much for choice, we sat down, looked at the menu, not what we wanted and left for another. We found another more decent shop, went in because by now our feet hurt, looked at the menu mostly with curry and rice dishes and realised ....IT'S JAPANESE! Wa lau, walked so much, choose here and there and eat Japanese food while in Shanghai, somemore first meal! Whatever, didn't want to walk anymore so just ate la! Not cheap somemore.

Shanghai Night Scene
Come nightfall, my DJ friend went out with his Shanghai-ed friends so I went Xin Tian Di alone. It's crowded on a weeknight.

Apparently there was a fashion show earlier. Check out this huge stage and nicely lit runway complete with tall trusses and pars. DJ was still spinning when i was there but fashion show already finished. But while in the loo, i caught sight of a few i suppose were the models. They are very tall, lean and pretty

Xing Tian Di was fun as it is host to side walk cafes, restaurants and all kinds of bars-jazz, canto, latin and top 40s. Needless to say, Starbucks, Coffee Bean and Mc Cafe compete for business from coffee addicts. As early as 8pm, the bars, side walks and restaurants was packed. You might not be able to see very well, but the next 2 pics are one of the cafes (think you can see the starbucks sign) and the canto band. I visited the jazz, top 40s and finally the canto band and left when my stomach couldn't take another drop of coke!
Much as I loathed my recent experience there, I cannot deny Shanghai is nice at night, and this not even christmas yet.

Finally, on the day i depart, i found the taxi drivig past several bridges, and when I turned around, I managed to snap this. It's pretty awesome but don't those 4 chinese characters make you feel like you are departing some hellish gates, which probably explained my hellish experience in the airport after that. click here if you wanna read about the saga

How's that for the record, probably have 10 next week. In case you think that's all i do and the number is no big deal, may i remind you I still hold my 9 to 6 job (all these events are at night or on weekends) still do my pole dancing and teach singing, and still have a bit of time to pak tor (date)! Today I was Emcee for an RC event and I practically worked from 9am to 10pm, and woke up at some unearthly 6am to slap on those ultra thick make up that supposed to last whole day without smudging. Still have to get to work on Mon morning. Anyway, I'm quite a workaholic, have always been and I started doing holiday/part-time jobs since 14 and did that throughout my secondary, jc and varsity days. I was just telling a friend who has 'quit the job and currently taking a break' how i have never done that throughout my 10 over years of career. I mean go holiday got la, but not like 'take a break' in between jobs. It has always been quit today start new place tomorow! And school hols I world work right up til school began.

Anyways, back to the copycats topic. You understand after a week's grufilling(gruelling and fulfilling) schedule I already lost all interest in flaming the person, but since supporters of my last post suggest I expose the fraud, i only scanned 1 page of the brochure to show you.

Not sure if you click on it you can see a larger image.. But can you see the first line which i bordered are worded the same? The second line that says "the sultry singer has a voice...blah blah" is also lifted from another linked website which I wrote for another entertainer. There are other parts here and there but, aiyah, never mind la, got better things to do that to expose word for word. But the irony is, in retrospect, now I actually cringe at how I used to write (maybe 5 to 6 years ago, that's how long i have had my website) but other people actually think it's good enough to plagiarize. I have always wanted to spend time to re-write and change web design but procrastinate, but I guess no point spending so much effort when there is piracy!

Let's talk about my last 3 events. I gotto show you this joker who impersonated a Diva at his company DnD's idol contest. No prize for guessing which diva and his gender! Aiyoh, he was hilarious.

Then i did a kid's christmas party (hospital staff's kids) . Kids mah, so i wore a more modest Santa rina outfit, the 'toasty' one will freak the parents out. This little boy so cute, dressed up for the party. He was wearing shirt and vest and when i suggested photo, the mum quickly don on his jacket.

Then meet angry spiderman, Actually thought he looked more like 'sun wo kong'- legendary monkey god'

Then finally, the RC event. RC event was pretty typical, cultural dance, lion dance and wu shu performances, everyone nervy and tense during MP's arrival, but what striked me were these young ballroom dancers who did a beautilfu job.

Finally, check out these 3-yr olds, jumpstarters of montessori. Aiyo they so cute and clueless on stage, they were so fun to watch

Ahaha, they are so cute, you should see them live. They totally messed up (see the girl at second row and 2nd) and they are always looking ar each other for cues. What was cuter was there were double the number of people downstage right in front clicking cameras or videoing away--their beeming parents!

Ok, probably update again 7 to 10 days later cos it cost me 2 hours to post all these pics!

Another blogging draught......Ooh.....again i haven't had time to blog. I've been working almost everyday, and night, which is a good sign. Good especially when i realise (or at least i choose to) I'm still a 'branded good'. Because only branded goods have imitators, i.e copies

Yes, I'm crossed that these people don't have a life, no freaking ideas. All my shows, my performances i create people just conveniently copy, but at least, i beg you, do a good job. They do a bad job and people think it's me! Some event companies, come on, the clients ask for me you give a cheaper fake, just get someone dress like me, sing the same songs, change outfits like the way I do and you think you can get away with it! For those pathetic souls who agreed to put up the fake, have some dignity, you only making a fool of yourself!

Then you know what, i received a publicity brochure from a female MC, marketing her services as an event host, and her introduction (and some lines in between) totally plagiarized from my website. And she has the cheek to send the brochure to me! Joke! I'm gonna scan and post in next blog!

Have some standard lah, plagiarize from the big stars, Madonna, Jlo.....Tsk tsk tsk.

Ms Sin lady, wah, you know when i flame like that I'm totally anal!

Yes, tomorow is December and i shall be so....o....o. busy up til x'mas which is a good thing. But can hear Angelina complaining 'no updates'.

Thanks to those who remembered my birthday (actually some of you i tell you one la). For those who know, i think i have one of my best birthday this year although it was celebrated low key.

Anyway, mum, niece, sis left for hong kong this morning. Another sis and family will be paying their annual pilgrimage to tokyo disneyland mid of this hoo.....i wanna go oso, but cannot.

Anyway, created another look for one of my recent show, quite nice la, but realised i'm looking more mature these it the birthday (mid life)? Hope still can perform and appeal to uncles and aunties. But Joanne, don't you think you did a good job? (Ahem!) The other Joanne (Tan), if you reading this, welcome to my blog! We shall meet for CNY! Hee

Anyone went to Sexpo? Did you feel your $15 was a rip off?

Wah liao, what a disappointment. I was so looking forward, thinking i can pick some exotic dance move tips, purchase some spit fire outfits for the shows. But the dancers turned out so.o.o. and i mean so.o.o amateur (I think those staff performance i choreograph are of higher standard). And the lingerie hanging on the racks for sale meant for steaming up your bedroom adventures are stocks from 10 years ago. I'm serious!

I thought exhibitions like these would not allow cameras so I didn't bring, but when i saw everyone armed with cameras or phone cameras frantically snapping away, i was like, shit, how come i didn't bring mine so that i can blog? But after browsing for half an hour, i know there was no loss, nothing much for me to snap, and maybe half the Singapore population already went. I think the hollywood boulevard strip in L.a. popular for their strip outfits and toys, if you have been there, is 10 times, make it 20, more exiting.

By far the most interesting things were the exhibits from Qing or whatever Dynasty, and makes you realise people in 3000 B.C. already very kinky, making out at gardens and so on, and usually with a peeping tom peering from a bush . Haha, so funny, and complete with their tok-tok-chiang wayang head gears and usually half cumbersomely undressed, if you know how many layers of fabric they used to wear. hahaha!

The booth that probably attracted most people were the House of Condom and the Vicon girls attemping exotic dance and blowing up condoms like a balloon (er, no, not at the same time, it's 2 separate acts) but what really attracted the audience were their micro mini skirts that revealed their bikini briefs that most ah peks thought was underwear peering out at them. At one point I hear from the main stage blasting Black Eye Pea's "don't funk with my heart" and i dashed to the scene thinking i can catch exotic dance performance. Dance performance it was, but by 2 barely adolescent "xiao mei mei" trying hard to memorise their steps. They had no make up on, no fancy costumes, i was wondering if it was only a rehearsal.

Then out of nowhere there was a dunking machine with a trying-so-hard-to-be coy lass cringing each time a tennis ball hits the canvas when it misses the target. And mind you it's not a free game, you gotto pay some $5 for 3 tries (maybe it's for charity, I don't know, i didn't go near enought to scrutinise). If you think like me "for what"??? (unless it's for charity) you are sane. Neverthless, this 'coy girl' (although i thought it fake) trying to flirt with the audience managed to attract enough insane people to pay to try to get her down.

I'm sorry, I'm usually not that bitchy. I don't mean to be hard on the dancers or the games but what I'm really disappointed is at how the whole thing doesn't worth the $15 admission. Honestly, if it's free admission i wouldn't have been so critical but 2 persons went and already thrity freaking bucks, and most of those toys and lingerie you can find at Orchard Towers, nothing new and unique about them. The most sold item in most of the booths was this vibrating ring to be worn by the men that gives women a sensation and hello, ......this item already hit the shelves of 7-11 more than half a year ago!

And for the dancers....please hire professional ones, not give dance schools a chance to showcase their beginner class students for this highly hyped debut event, i might as well watch those in my pole dance school!

If you ask me if I would go for subsequent Sexpo, maybe 5 years from now, that is if they survive the next 5 years here.

How Angie, spit fire or not? Kekekeke

10 days never blog already.

Too busy following the controversial news of clapbangkiss, poor girl. Just pity some people who are too young to know the price of stardom. I once had a 19-year old student who was so transfixed on becoming a star (then there were no idol, project superstar contests) her mum hired several home-based grooming teachers and a full time marketing manager to sell her portfolio to recording companies. A day of her life included singing lessons (i was just one of the few singing teachers hired), photography, all kinds of grooming, doing demos etc, and guess what, she wasn't even ready to sing a full song in tune yet! And all these before her manager found any label to sign her up. Eventually I heard there was none and she (and her mother) got big time disappointment. I sacked myself as her singing teacher because she was getting so confused with the varied teachings (she is chinese and she did a demo in malay only because one of the teacher is malay???) and she sang Mandarin songs with a malay accent and English songs with a chinese twang!!! Give up, told mum i was too busy.

Anyway, i know, i know, i owe some the pervert story on plane but today not in the mood to think and recap. So just a few pictures of an awesome event I did last evening for a hip company. Bunch of young, trendy and si-beh on staff and you can tell from the way they dress for the event. One of the staff performance you see below choreographed by me.

These my dancers. Picture taken in ugly storeroom.

Have been wanting to post this up because I love what I wore for the opening of the Shanghai Gala event. Bought this some years back from my regular seamstress. She must have sewn this and rented to a bride, but now she no longer in the bridal business (these days she sews the elaborate ballroom dance costumes and my costumes) so she asked me if I wanted to buy it. It was pretty, but I thought I will never have an occasion to wear this because those who know me know that this look is not very me.

Now, THIS IS me,

either this or the Cheena Suzie Wong look

Since my seamstress gave an irresistable price, I took it home and has been sitting in the wardrobe for a while. It's so colourful I call it the peacock dress.

So when I was told it was a Gala event and in China, hmm, I thought this would work because I always watch on TV those new year countdown events held in some big stadium in China and the Soprano female singers always don on one of these gowns, complete with immaculate make -up and hair piled up, with sideburns rolled into tendrils.

Worked it did, many came to tell me they liked my get-up, in fact a chinese model at the event told me I looked like a disney character. I choose to think she means the princess (or at least minnie the mouse) and not winnie the pooh.

A picture I took with Eric Moo, yes he was the guest star for the event (same picture, but one with and one without flash)

Eric raising the temperature with his powerful yet soulful vocals.

Hmm.... yes, he is very good....our pride and joy indeed.

Ok, nowadays I don't have very much time to blog, so til now, just about the event la. Will post pictures of Shanghai shopping and clubbing next, and yes, Ms Sin lady, also the bl**dy square pervert (yes, can you beat that, he is square) who sat next to me, that one must take tme to refresh my memory because it was like a 5-hour of him trying to pick me up. Haha, funny!

I stumbled upon this website I'm not the only one with the unpleasant experience.

No time to blog more, tired, did 4 events in a week including that 2 shanghai-sin in less than 24 hours. Somemore journey come back nap was interrupted by sex pervert. Oh ya, that will be my next entry topic, the pervert. I Lol-ing already thinking of it.

Wednesday, November 02, 2005


Yeah, good luck to China on trying to shape up, not unless they can do something about their taxi drivers spitting out of the window every 3 minutes, stop the migrain-triggering incessant car honking, and improve service staff attitude by 70%. That's a lot to do in less than 3 years, more like they need 3 decades!

I must say while I had a great time working with Kitson and team in Shanghai (we whipped up an incredible event), but I can't say I have the same experience with the people in Shanghai. Everywhere you hear shouting matches....yes, whether the people are quarelling or not, they speak at the top of their voices, and then you realise, hey, that's their mode of conversation! I was once told if you want things done, you CANNOT speak to them gently. I wasn't used to this but, I had to try.....but how wrong, still didn't get what I want. Tell you how i found out......

So, on Saturday, after an euphoric event on Friday, I was due to fly back to Singapore at 10.35am on MU567 (China Eastern), because I have a performance on Saturday night. Scheduled to arrive back here at 3.35pm, I figured I have ample time to prepare even if the notoriously late carrier suay-suay really kenna some delay. I woke up at 7am, cherrily arrived at the airport at 8.40am and went to check which row I have to queue to check eyes surveyed the entire board once, no such flight, panick, can't be, maybe eyes still sleepy. Rub eyes, check again, still don't have. Freaked out, I dragged my luggage packed for like a 2-week travel to China Eastern ticketing counter to enquire. After staring at the computer for a minute, the girl told me there's no such flight. What? Just 3 days ago I called China Eastern office in Singapore after the 4th attempt (they gave me 3 other tel numbers that turned out to be wrong) that I don't have to re-confirm my seats anymore?? Further check, she said it had been cancelled, but due to what reason, when cancelled whatsoever--don't know! Ok ok, calm down, so what is the next flight I can be on. Oh, so now I have to go to another counter called "Duty Supevisor" to ask. Dragged luggage again (yes I know airport provide trolleys, but I have no time...very stress liao because got assignment back in Singapore). Duty supervisor unemphatically says next flight at 3.50pm and I arrive 8.50pm. Quick mental calculation, after collect luggage 9.30pm, my show at 10pm....CANNOT! I went around looking for another possibility. Found one and only SQ flight at 2.35pm, arrive 7.35pm. Ok, still looks plausible, that is if I apply cosmetic on board the plane. Went to SQ counter ask if I can be tranferred over. No seats. They told me to wait, if there's cancellation, I can get it IF China Eastern willing to endorse the switch over, which is entire at their discretion. I prayed silently, YES, phone rang and Kitson told me someone just cancelled reservation and have 1 seat on SQ. I went to Duty Supervisor again, told them my ordeal again, and tell them to help switch me to SQ, a discretion they were just not willing to exercise. I started by being gentle.....don't work, I remembered someone say must speak English, not Mandarin, still don't work. And finally I have to YELL, until I heard my own echo travelling down the departure hall, still no one moved an arse! All the moron did was wrote me a chit that says the original MU 567 has been cancelled and said that I can pursue the matter with my local agent for issuing me the ticket! To cut the long story short, Kitson was nice enough to buy me and get the agent to send me the SQ ticket and we agreed to take the matter to Singapore since there's is NO POINT in seeking help in Shanghai...these people have never heard of service recovery, problem solving or anger management, btw, while I was shuttling between counters to seek help, I witnessed at least 2 other passenger-and-airport staff squabbles.

Then the final part. After checking in to SQ, I wanted to make sure I cancelled my seat with China Eastern (I held on to the 3.35pm seat just in case I didn't get the SQ) so that I can get the refund back in Singapore. So as usual, I went to Duty Manager who tai-chi the task to the ticketing counter, and as you would have guessed it, ticketing counter asked me to go duty manager. Who wouldn't blow a top by now? And yes, this is the only time it worked. Without bargaining further, she tapped on the computer and told me "Cancelled!". I'm not satisfied, I demanded to know when and why MU 567 was cancelled and why I was not informed. She made a probably bogus call which was not answered and just gave me the tel. no to call myself since she got no reply. I'm exhausted, I have to board so I let her off. While running towards the gate, I made the call and as I already half expected it, the China Eastern call centre rep also can't give light to my plight. He offered several clueless possibilties you wished you had not wasted the roaming call charge.

While the biggest consolation was not only I got back on time to do another great show, the flight back on SQ was so much more plesant (if not for the next passenger trying to hit on me-this is another experience I have to post in my next entry), compared to hot-like-hell Sin-Shanghai China Eastern flight which had the loo smelling like porta pumper.

Bet you are exhausted reading too. Anyway, before I forget, all these happened after I already had a tiff with a hotel receptionist ealier when checked out who insisted I still had to make the balance payment of several hundred yuan when it had already been settled by Kitson during check in. I had to dig out the already stashed away receipt as proof before he irately walked away and declared "mei shi le, mei shi le" (no issue, no issue) like as though he is granting me pardon for something I had done wrong!!

Actually I've many lovely pictures to post, but guess I will do so next post because the re-enacting of the Shanghai airport saga causing me to hyper-ventilate. In the meantime, just one of my favourite one, to remind me that there was at least something cool about Shanghai-the weather! More pictures next post.

Can't wait to belt my "Long Ban, long lau", will be leaving for Shanghai by tomorow midnight and these 2 days will have some serious packing to do. If not for the fact I have to return by Saturday for a local show, I would have continued on a romping escapade either in another part of China or somewhere else.

So after Saturday's show, just like everyone else, I really really want to get out of Singapore again.....I think half of Singapore's population is leaving the country due to the very luxurious week filled with 2 public holidays. I calculate already, those who don't work Saturdays, they can apply 3 days leave for a 9-day trip spanning from Sat til the following Sun.

I'm not planning for anything that long, just a 3-4 day thingie to neighbouring places but the problem is .....everywhere's fully booked! Not unless you don't mind going tsunami and terror inflicted places....which naturally most people want to avoid (including me). When I called most agencies and mentioned the dates and my (& everyone's) fave places HK and BKK, i can almost hear them sniggering under their breath like "hello, they were fully booked since half a year ago". Of course they offer alternatives like Penang, Phuket and BALI!

As if I'm not convinced, I log on to Zuji travel website and type in Sin-Hk and Sin-Bkk respectively. Sin-Hkk tickets were going for $700 plus per return ticket for some flight timing that takes you there by midnight and over $2000 for return morning flights. Siao! Sin-Bkk better still, they tell you they can't find anything that match my schedule, please widen my search options. Haha and Sigh! Guess I will stay home unless anyone can give a good suggestion.

At this age, it just suddenly occurred to you that you have just signed up for any darn anti-aging talk. I have already been to cosmetic surgery talks (not that I have that kind of 'tai-tai' money to spare but always good to know my options when I have), MLM anti-aging products trials etc etc. Would have gone to a botox party if invited to one.
I have stopped being a sucker for any new products that appear on the Guardian or Watson shelves ever so quickly because these products DON'T work quickly enough. I have even spent thousands on these stupid oral vials (can't remember the name) that you break and pour the essence under your tongue and let it slowly seep and absord into the nerves and suppose to be super potent it gives you a mighty boost to the collegen. Don't even see this brand anymore and in retrospect, I was so gung-ho to have tried it. i remembered asking the MLM girl (her name was Angeline) who sold me this thing, but she couldn't answer, so her supervisor, what will happen if anything goes wrong with me since, it's oral consumption right? She has the cheek to tell me I was insured for one freaking million dollars if anything goes wrong. Like duh? Where's my insurance certificate? Who diagnose? Where to claim? Her answers to these are simply.....incredulous......hold your breath, she said "the receipt is the certificate, anything wrong come and find me". Applause, didn't know she is a doctor, insurance comapny, maybe even pathologist all rolled in one. But, can you believe who is the bigger fool? ME, because I still went ahead to try the product.

So naturally, I would RSVP when La Mer (pronounced La Mare) invited me to a Sunday afternoon tea talk. I used to use La Mer but stopped because of its exorbitant price. Frankly I can't tell if it works but its widely publicised historical origin is very impressive and most of the Tai-tai singing students I have have a jar of it sitting on their dresser, and Jlo is said to use this thing on her entire body! Hmm, worth a try again and these talks usually have discounts or feebies. You notice that La Mer counters don't usually have giveaways like other brands? I suppose they don't need to have freebies since its clientele is very targetted.

I went and am not disappointed. Of course I went there prepared to spend a little and resume my beauty regime with La Mer. I bought my usual 30ml jar of miracle mosturiser
and was given a free 15ml

Than before I left, they handed out a door gift which contains another small jar of 3.5ml. See, so cute, ahaha, like papa, mama and baby.

So you know what that means, I have a total of 48.5ml of it, having only paid for the 30ml jar.

Hmm...very contented. By the time I left, these were my possessions

Sunday afternoon well spent.

Thursday, October 20, 2005


So finally tonight I plucked up the courage to take some pictures of my pole dance class. I'm too embarrassed to even ask my teacher to take for me because my movements still kinda uncoordinated, so mostly I set the camera to self-timer (it counts to 10secs) which explains why most of the time I'm already nearing the floor when the camera snaps on it's own. You see when you twirl round the pole, you normally start somewhere in the middle than slowly slide down to the floor as you still spinning. That's for beginners lah. When advance you suppose to be able to manouvre or jump up and start higher. So, here goes...but don't laugh, they are alot harder than they look.

Angelina, I know you will be reading this and probably laughing in that cosy and messy little cubicle of yours. Are you going to change your mind about hiring me? Haha. Eh, don't pray pray ok, you see the way the hair swinging you jolly well know got "kang hu" and they not stagnant moves hor. Anyway if I so good I already join the Miss Pole Dance liao, still sit her and blog meh?

Anyway the next move a bit more impressive cos they seem further from the ground (Psst...cos this one posed stationary one)

Wah, but this one kiap until very painful.

I'm just gonna show 1 last one of me. A bit unglam but thought I saw the same pose by Mediacorp's Jeff Wang at the Cancer Fund Raising show trailer. Not bad for me that I can do this too, ahem. Suppose to spin but I kind of stuck!

Anyway, Angie, I know the pictures don't do justice to my dance and look far from appetizing but wait til I put on my killer platform boots (haven't try yet, think the person I kill first will be myself, already so much injury wthout them) and my spit-fire, cleavage revealing (!?!?) outfits. bwahahahaha.

Didn't get permission from my teacher to put this in the blog but guess she won't mind.

So graceful.

Last but not least, the next person sure won't let me post this picture one. But Ju, I promise not to reveal your full name and also picture CANNOT see your face. But you did this so well I'm so inspired (Ju is co-teacher but she just learnt this move)

Wah, shiok ah. Today aching all over. Got one month break to next semester, so how? Maybe must really practise in MRT.

What a way to start the be told by a colleague we lost a mood to elaborate, but it's totally moronic.

While I thoroughly enjoy my work, inevitably there are these people, these incidents that will spoil it all for you. Someone just forwarded me this and I think it helps...share it with you, called "Office Prayer"


Lord, as I enter this work place,
I bring Your Presence with me
I speak Your Peace, Your Grace and Your
Perfect Order into the atmosphere of this office.
I acknowledge Your Lordship over all
that will be spoken, thought and decided, and
accomplished within these walls.

Lord, I thank You for the gifts
You have deposited in me.
I do not take them lightly, but commit
to using them responsibly and well.
Give me a fresh supply of truth and beauty
on which to draw as I do my job.
Anoint me creativity, my ideas, mad my
energy so that even my smallest
task may bring You honour.

Lord, when I am confused, guide
When I am weary, energise me.
Lord, when I am burned out, infuse me
with the Light of Your Holy Spirit.
May the work that I do and the way
that I do it, bring hope, life and courage
to all that I come in contact with today.
And, oh Lord, even in this day's most stressful
moments... may I rest in You..
In Your strong and powerful name I pray

.....ah, feel better already. looking forward to thise evening's pole dance already....

Barely 2 weeks after that clan dinner, last weekend another one was organised, albeit smaller in scale, and was held in a restaurant in china town. These uncles and aunties really know how to enjoy themselves. So, I thought small scale means no frills and one would just go and 'makan', but guess I was wrong. When nearing the restaurant already heard wayang-styled crooning of cantonese pop songs. Wah, they really start early man, they were karaokeing even before cold dish was served, and if I thought these avid singers would stop when dinner starts, I was grossly mistaken. They didn't stop singing til the last guest shook the hands of the clan president and the line of board members at the door macham wedding dinner style.

My mum is obviously one of the designated performer, but minus all the opera get-up .

Then it was me...... as expected, I wouldn't be spared, being the only so-called professional singer. Without preparation whatsoever, I just selected a song from what few disc they had and just belted out a cantonese number as quickly as possible so that I could get back to my spinach with mushrooms.

See the husband-and-wife duo. They performed complete with showmanship and all a catchy cantonese number "Qun Hiong Kong Lang Lui Dor" means "Pretty Women in Hong Kong".

Very cute one. The song is about a man telling the wife how easy it is to spot pretty lasses on streets of Hong Kong. The wife pretends to partake in the discussion and tricks him into elaboration and before he knew it, she lashes out in jeolousy on how he has been eyeing other girls. In the middle of the song, they even have this bickering dialogue. Than they made up and...........what else, live happily ever after.

And finally, if you remember, my chubby niece. Her last experience (debut) made her realise she has no aspiration to be a singer like "Ah Yee" or karaoker whatsoever, so this time she just came to indulge in the food.

She confided in me why she wore a hood over her head. She said the last time those uncles and aunties chatted, she could feel their showers of saliva all over her head. Ee....ww...., so this time she comes armoured. Haha. she's so cute.
Ok, so tomorow is my last pole lesson for the 1st term. Think I'm ready to take pictures.
