新发型

哈咯!大家喜欢我的新发型吗?这是为了新剧《小娘惹》而剪的。

当我知道要剪头发时,我好伤心,竟然哭了十分钟!不过流了很多眼泪和鼻涕之后,就没事啦。哈哈,觉得自己有点傻,哎呀,多可惜啊,留了好久的头发终于有一点长了,又要剪掉,不能象台湾妹妹们一样有长长又稍卷的头发。。。呜呼!

不过也不会太在意了,当下的情绪放出来后就ok啦。。。就象我的其中一位导师说的,艺人就是要这样嘛,所以没什么好伤心的。现在头发也容易打理,只是不能绑高高的马尾了。嘿嘿!

球爱大战宣传

上个星期出席了《球爱大战》的记者招待会。看了片段后,真的很期待,所以我也希望大家可以支持这部剧。

最近博客上有不少朋友给予我关于演技的评语,谢谢你们对我的关心,我也不断的在精益求精。大致上,老板们对于我之前的剧所给的评语都还ok,没有原地踏步的问题,当然有进步的空间,所以我还是会努力! 那天访问时,有位记者在看了片段后给我很大的鼓励,让我很欣慰,我也希望这部剧能够让你们看到我的成长。

记得收看《球爱大战》七月七日,晚上九点,八频道哦!

芷绚因为生水痘,不能出席。

这本来应该是开球的姿势。。。哈哈,教练看了一定摇头。。。

全体照。建复和钟琴是宣传他们各自的节目。

Oosh…!

还是私底下拍的照片随性一点。

记者招待会之后,就去拍8DAYS封面。。。

芷绚本来和我们一起拍封面的,结果就只是铭顺,懿珊和我。铭顺得赤着身子,所以我还是别放太多照片在这儿,也暂时让封面有些神秘感。。。嘿嘿!

Graduation portraits

Last weekend I finally found time to take my long overdue graduation family studio portrait. What struck me most was the price! I never expected it to cost so much and frankly, I wasn’t impressed with the way they tried to get me to take different sets of portraits and blow it up to outrageous sizes (the biggest size cost like over a thousand dollars!!!!), saying that most people like to hang a big picture of their portraits in the living room. I for one don’t really think there’s a need to be so extravagant. I think I’ll only blow it up and place it in my living room when I take my PhD graduation portrait (that is, if I do it this lifetime). Eventually, I stuck to the smallest size for my individual photo (8R) and kept my parents’ and the family portraits at 20R and 40R respectively.

Still, I wonder where we’ll find the space to hang it up.

Taken while waiting for my mom to be done with her make-up…

The photographer used a few different backdrops and props. This young man is the photographer’s assistant and he is there to make sure my robe is neat and nothing is out of place.

I have to keep very still, otherwise he has to adjust my robe all over again.

The 2 assistants and the photographer (extreme right). I don’t really like this bookshelf backdrop.

Smile…

Act blur…

Act cute…

Try a different pose…

Ok done!!

It’s been 2 years since my convocation, and gosh, I miss school!

DUSTY DINNER

谢谢所有到Far East Plaza 支持我的朋友!看到你们真开心!很可惜不能和你们聚太久,请多多原谅。因为是新店DUSTY的开张,所以我们也得为他们的营业着想。当晚保卫也管的比较严。。。所以真的不好意思!可以的话,记得把照片电邮给我哦,要不然也可以upload 在我的Facebook page. 🙂 谢谢,love ya all!

我在Passion弄头发,准备出发。。。

Belinda和我在储藏室里等其他艺人到来才一块儿就座。节目一开始就没机会照相了。

节目结束后,我跑去吃晚餐/夜宵。平时我都不会这么晚出门,那天不知怎的,心血来潮,就在外面呆了一会儿,发现还是不喜欢迟归。总觉得带着精疲力尽的身子回家,冲凉睡觉不太健康。我喜欢晚上在家里unwind,有大把时间做自己想做的事,舒服多了。

我的Blackcurrant & Apple juice。

真的很贪吃喔。。。嘿嘿!

Maple Sugar Cookies

谢谢阿七从日本送来的礼物,还有我最喜欢的Maple 口味!!

有福

有一晚,韵仪和我到Bonia的公司开会,他们对我们的招待很周到。先有蛋糕和我最喜欢的咖啡不加糖,后有炒饭,炒米粉,还有名贵红酒,好棒哦,因为我是从另一个记者招待会赶来,所以又饿,又渴,真的是雪中送炭。结果我没心情工作了,只是尽情的享用美食美酒。嘿嘿,我们大家就这样坐在一起吃饭,聊天,好像一家人,真幸福!当然我们也有讨论接下来的一些计划,不过暂时先卖个关子,希望到时给大家意外惊喜。

桌上很乱吧!oops…

我对红酒没有研究,而且喝了很快就脸红,所以都不怎么爱喝。但是老板总是爱开红酒,所以我就喝了一点。我只知道他开的第三瓶特别顺喉,停留在嘴里的滋味。。。说不上来,就只是和我以前喝的不一样。我可没想到竟然是五六百块的红酒,我还是第一次这么有福气!结果喝了都没有脸红,所以真的是一分钱一分货!

Peranakan Musuem

I took some time to sort out the pictures of my little expedition to the Peranakan museum. They are by no means the only pictures I’ve taken, the best part has yet to come, *grins*, but I will post that in a separate entry.

My interest in the Peranakan culture has been invoked by my preparation work for Channel 8’s upcoming blockbuster drama 《小娘惹》where I will be acting as an English-educated nonya of the third generation.

Personally, I adore big families, and I enjoy practicing tradition although I haven’t been brought up to do so. To some extent, I believe some traditional values, beliefs, practices are essential in our society, to ground us in the fast paced lives we live and to add deeper meaning to who we are.

I’m envious of the Peranakan community for being so proud of their culture, for their willingness to share their knowledge and craft to keep the culture alive, because when everything turns to dust, this is what will still remain.

The origin of Peranakans. You can click on it for a larger image.

I thought women in those days can hardly step out of the house.

I like the lobby area, I imagine I’m peaking out from the second floor of a Peranakan home.

The beadwork is so intricate, I salute the women who let this take shape. This is a tray cloth, used during weddings, to cover food or gifts.

The hall where the bride and the bridegroom will have to carry out the individual wedding ritual in their respective homes at a certain auspicious hour.

The wedding gown…beautiful isn’t it?

Husband and wife sharing their first meal in the room.

Yummy…

The marital bed, which has been blessed by a young boy (there is a special selection criteria) rolling on the bed three times. It is another beautiful piece of furniture. You should see the cupboards and dressing table, I love the carvings and the dark wood, it’s very classic!

The bead chart. Women had to learn sewing and embroidery and be skilled in it in order to qualify as a good future daughter-in-law.

The beaded panel for shoes.

A marriage certificate

Pick up the telephones and hear someone talking to you. It’s fun!

A large piece of embroidery

An ancestral tablet

Notice the carvings on it. Maidens are carved on it to provide the dead a good after-life.

It is so detailed!

I am impressed with the craftsman who did this! The dragon looks quite alive despite being carved from wood!

Ancestor worship is part of the Peranakan practice.

Some deities that Peranakans might pray to.

How many of these deities can you identify?
