Star Awards 2010

I caught a bit of the re-run of Star Awards yesterday afternoon and I don’t know if it’s my ageing television or just simply the way sound is transmitted, but it did JJ Lin’s voice no justice. I’ve always been a fan of his because he’s a local singer/song writer who has displayed great talent and showmanship throughout the years.

He performed《无法克制》at the live venue, and his voice was crisp and confident even when it came to the high notes in the song. It was immaculate! But somehow on television, the power of his vocals failed to come through. In any case, he gave a flawless performance that night and I love it!

The day of Star Awards happened to fall on my birthday (25 April), so before the whole frenzy began for hair and make-up, I had a sweet surprise backstage.

Winnie and Xing Ni quietly singing a birthday song for me.

Making my wish before cutting the "cake".

Mini-cake/Muffin. Winnie knows I'm cutting sugar so she made a really guilt-free one with no sugar! Aww...so sweet of her!

Me and my home-made "birthday" dinner. My mom cooked everything except for the chicken breast, which is my own salt-free, less oil recipe. I had chicken, egg, brown rice, vegetables and bittergourd beancurd soup. Yummy!

Oops...and everyone else was eating packed dinner provided. It's the company that matters!!

And then the frenzy began. As I was the first out on the red carpet, producers were calling and rushing everyone to standby. Ryan touching up my hair; Jeremy adjusting my outfit; Elaine finishing up with my make-up.

We stole a group photo before making our way to the ballroom. (From left to right) Belinda Lee, Priscelia Chan, Pan Ling Ling, Joanne Peh (me), Cai Peixuan, Jin Yinji, Yvonne Lim and Lin Meijiao.

The not-so-glamourous secret passageway that leads to the ballroom. Pan Ling Ling played my mom in The Little Nyonya, so I never stopped calling her mommy since then, athough Ling Ling is way too young to have me as her daughter. Still I just love her!

While we wait for the rest of our colleagues to come in after the red carpet, we decided to kill some time.

Huang Wenyong (left) and Chen Shucheng (right) are also part of YOUR HAND IN MINE.

Pierre Png plays my boyfriend in YOUR HAND IN MINE. Yes, I'm stuck between two guys, and as the drama unfolds, keep watching to see who I end up with. Weekdays, 7pm on Channel 8!

Chen Liping sporting a new haircut for her new drama. I love her image now, it's refreshingly different from her character currently in YOUR HAND IN MINE. This reminds me of Ellen Degeneres!

Some of the men that I have been paired with in dramas throughout my career. (From left to right) Tay Ping Hui, Qi Yuwu, Elvin Ng and Nat Ho.

Announcing the last position for the Top 10 Most Popular Female Artistes award. All my colleagues congratulated me prematurely while the presenters on stage took their time to announce the last name. I was so embarrassed! What if it's not me?!?!

The Wedding of the Year – Part 2

ABOUT FANN…

I’ve never really had the chance to work with Fann on any drama. The closest encounter was in the drama MAKING MIRACLES, where she played a doctor and I, a nurse, but still I didn’t have any direct scenes with her. She always strike me a very strong woman, for working the way she does, putting in the number of hours and still always looking so radiant. I admire her for her poise and charisma because there’s something about her that draws you in yet leaves you hanging for more. She is the role model for the rest of us in the industry.

ABOUT CHRIS…

I’ve worked with Christopher on BEACH BALL BABES. We weren’t close, but I could tell, he’s very much in love with his wife from the way her name hangs on his lips quite often. I like that when he was interviewed last night whether or not it was tedious preparing for such a massive wedding that he was forthright about it being tough as opposed to giving a politically pleasing answer. He’s charismatic to women and still remains a guy’s guy. He has good camaraderie with his co-stars and strikes up rapport with the crew and director off camera. He’s the guy everyone enjoys working with.

ABOUT THEM…

There is something inspiring about their relationship because it must not be easy being two high profile celebrities, who not only have to put up with media attention but also have to endure the trials and tribulations of being separated when one is filming in a foreign land for months at a go. When I see the two of them in the make-up room, there is something magnetic about the chemistry they share just being side by side that makes me embarrassed to be even breathing the same air. That’s what love in the air is like. It taught me that love can be without words.

There is hope that we will all find the right one someday too.

I wish them all the best in their careers and family building.

Irene had one of the toughest jobs last night as one of the hosts for the wedding of Chris and Fann.

Bryan Wong was my table partner. There were photographers taking photographs of guests and developing them on the spot for us.

It was very hard to catch a picture of the couple because they were always surrounded by their entourage, photographers and excited guests.

Trey is the funniest person I know and we always have a good laugh every time we meet.

Belinda Lee and I were filming the long drama YOUR HAND IN MINE just before the wedding dinner.

I love Jin-jie's outfit. The shade of green looks good on her. Here's how to look oriental and still remain elegant.

Here's a warped picture of Karen and I because I tweaked the settings on my camera. I thought this was quite cool. I love her outfit from Balmain. She got it from Paris!

Another happy couple! I love seeing blissfully married couples, they make me cry!

Thomas used to be my managerial executive when I was still a newbie. It was so good to see him!

Patricia (left) bantered with Irene Ang on stage for a bit. He Yong Fang (right) used to host City Beat with Bryan Wong when I was still in primary school. I remembered because I bumped into them at the Science Centre once and she obliged a photo with my classmates and I.

"Ah Bu" was so happy last night!

I was lucky to be able to sneak a picture with the beautiful bride before she was whisked off to the next table. Her happiness is infectious!

红星大奖召势活动

那天到淡马锡初级学院为红星大奖召势,让我很兴奋,因为同学们的热情真的无法挡!我在路途中一直被其他三位艺人(俊雄,芷绚,展发) “围攻”考问我一些私人问题,让我防不胜防,对接下来要做的事一点心里准备也没有。所以当巴士开到淡马锡初级学院,我很意外竟然有这么多朋友已经在等我们了!不过好笑的是,我们巴士的前门卡住了,不能开,紧急门靠了三,四个人才把它成功的打开,好丢脸!结果还得搬桌子来让我们踩着下车,好好笑哦!

整个活动一眨眼就过了,没有办法跟一些同学拍照和互动,希望同学们可以谅解。真的很可惜,我们时间不多,让不少同学们失望,希望以后有机会再去拜访你们!

我真的很感动,和很开心见到淡马锡初级学院学生们的那种凝聚力。你们不停地为我们尖叫,欢呼,真是让我受宠若惊。谢谢你们,让我回到校园,重温学生生涯的那种幸福快乐,也给我留下了这么美好的回忆。

我们依依不舍的离开了!后面三个男生很可爱,竟然很爽快地在镜头面前向我求婚!当然是导播的意思啦!

玩了大半天,要谢谢Carol 的摄影,还有红星外景 crew 和工作人员为我们安排的一切!辛苦你们了,还要照顾到节目的拍摄,艺人的安全,还有学生的反应,真不容易!加油!

Bonia & Me :)

噎! Bonia 又续约了!真的好开心,又能够再次当 Bonia 的代言人。那天在 Takashimaya Square 走秀后,韵仪和老板提到我们再次为设计包包的主意,如果能有机会,那就太好了!好兴奋哦!

哈哈!

我虽然不是特别有设计天分,但是整个合作的过程很愉快。可能是因为 Bonia 是由一个家庭从小做起,所以和他们合作很有一家人的感觉。每次上他们的公司,或好像上回一起吃饭时,都有一种很亲切的感觉。我曾经说过,很喜欢大家庭的那种凝聚力,而跟他们在一起,就让我有这种很舒服的感受。

Last Friday (12 Oct) was a day full of emotions for me. In the morning, I was bawling my eyes out with the rest of the cast of “A Path Of Gold”. Then in the afternoon was the Bonia fashion show, where I was really thrilled to be part of the Bonia brand once again! I was very tempted to sip the champagne in celebration, but somehow the glass didn’t come to me. *heehee*

And the long day ended with a bunch of fun-loving Jolliteers, who really brought sunshine in my heart even though it was nearly evening. Thank you all so much, for being so loving! *hugs & kisses*
