It does look like it's lots of fun

It does look like a lot of fun, and we at Acro Polates are having so much of it.

Many (especially those who have sort-of given up pole due to the pain, bruises etc) have written to me to ask if aerial hoop and silk are easier or less painful. My reply : looks can be deceiving

This is a little overdue

But I thank everyone for their thoughtful gifts for my birthday.
and this year instead of a birthday cake, I opt for these lovely bailey and lychee martini and chocolate rum cup cakes, some went missing before candles were blown

Ooh-yeah I finally get to meet me mascot

Remember I was supposed to have my own "Celebrity Doll"? Don't pray pray ok, she just arrived from UK ok? And tonight I meet her for the first time. Gosh she's really a mini me.

She comes with her own pole, but yeah, we can also do doubles

Why I so like this?

I'm actually quite a softie, but always wanting to act so tough like that. While I quite enjoy reading "emo" posts on other's blogs, I'd rather not make my emotional soft spots known, not unless I'm extremely upset with something /somebody I'd blah it out on my blog

Today Daniel came for one last pole practice before he took the 2am flight to Europe for some six months or so....I'm so gonna miss practising with him, but I just won't overtly show or admit it. Yes, that last hug almost brought a tear, but I'd quickly rattle some jokes or nonsense to distract myself. It was the same when Kelly left for good for Melbourne. I chose not to send her off at the airport because I knew I was gonna cry buckets. I regret not even taking some farewell shots with her.

Tonight was a rare Saturday night in December without a gig, an indication of either the recession is stil looming, OR, I'm just getting lesser engagements.

Whatever the reason, I chose not to sit around and brood, but instead, spent the time bonding with family. First, I took mum & dad to grocery shopping and then a simple yet yummy dinner at amoy hawker centre. Since dad's discharge from the hospital, he is forbidden (by us) to drive and he had been having real poor appetitite. So i became chauffeur for the evening and took them to a supermarket so then they can stock up supplies. I know dad has been craving for slice fish mee fan, the kind cooked with milk, instead of choosing a fancy restaurant, I took them to Quan Ji at Amoy street, which serves one of the best fish head mee fan. Dad, being a frugal dad will enjoy his food more knowing we did not pay a fortune for it. True enough, he heartily gobbled down the mee fan and soup and kept raving about how value-for-money it had been.

Then I drove them briefly passed crowded Orchard to enjoy the lights, and stopped by at "Ji De Chi" at Liang Seah Street to purchase 7 bowls of durian puree with pomelo for sis's family & us.

Then it was a slow drive to sis's place to eat the dessert. And dad, although did not tuck at the dessert, clearly enjoyed the company of his grand children.

It was a heartwarming Saturday evening. I want to do more of this. I've come to realise that dad and mum are not young anymore, they need us, they want to be around their children and loved one. I want to take more time out from my busy schedule to be with them, I don't want to regret not seeing them enough. I hope I can do it, I want to do it.

Moth! Run!

Moths, especially the huge ones with patterns, terrify me.

I remembered once when i was a kid, I almost drowned in a pool doing my front crawl. My head bobbed out of the water (to take a breath), and one big moth was floating in my direction. That was the last time i swam at Singapore Island country club.

Someone recently stuck a poster in our lift. Just now as I entered the lift, I thought someone had added a sticker on the poster. And as the lift door was almost closing to a complete shut, I suddenly realised that it was NOT a sticker, but a huge moth lightly fluttering its wings and probably ready to terrorise me when I alone with it behind the lift doors.

I muffled my instant desire to scream but instead let out a soft but very petrified"OH MY GOD" and stuck my finger between the lift door which was by now just an inch from shutting, and literally pried open it.

I ran to the next lift, and still shudder at every sound produced by the lift motors. When the door eventually opened, I felt my knees had turned jelly.

I thought it would help to quickly send friend a text messsage to warn him so that he might not get a fright when he gets home, presumably in half an hours time. Instead of thanking me, he said I probably frightened the poor moth! Bleah

A quick update : My birthday

Lots happened during the week, little time to blog. So just a quick birthday update.

What's my party without a pole right?

Ok, me and more me....courtesy of Celestine who took the pics..thanks cos I realised, as usual i was running the event til I had no time to snap pictures....last year i had a professional photographer and ended up with some 600 shots!

Instead of traditional cake (I can't believe I ditched my fave butter cream), I ordered cupcakes, baileys, lychee martini and chocolate rummm......yummm..no regrets! As you can see some already missing before the candles were blown!

I can always count on Daniel & Marla to fill an empty pole platform.

This year I even have a Daniel wannabe, Nicholas from Seremban, he's only 16 and loads of poletentital

Got special guest perfomer, Ella.
A simply fulfilling party.....I'm so blessed
