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.

With the cast of YOUR HAND IN MINE, Zhang Yaodong (left) plays the love of my life and Shaun Chen (right) plays a baddie!

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 final 10 of us on stage.





Bonia @ KL

I had the privilege of being invited to KL for Bonia and it was indeed an eye opener. I’ll let the pictures do the talking!

By the time we arrived at Mandarin Hotel, it was nearly 1 pm and I was starving! I ordered room service and I was so surprised the food came served on a trolley. The waiter took the food out from this little “fridge” (except it keeps the food warm) attached below the table and lay it out so nicely in front of me. As you can see I had a sumptuous meal of half a dozen chicken satay, wanton noodle and teh tarik! Yummy! You won’t believe it, but I wiped up most of it!

Wanton Noodle with duck meat…*drools*




This is me, all ready for the press conference.


I’ve never been so overwhelmed by reporters and photographers! The entire room was filled with reporters and photographers, and the reporters actually fielded questions from the floor. Most of the time back here, reporters would sit with us individually for interviews. After the Q&A was photo-taking and I must admit I was a little taken aback by the cameras, cos’ not used to seeing so many photographers. The bright flashes made me a little dizzy. Thankfully I wasn’t wearing too high heels!


Back in the hotel room, I had the honour of having Dennis from our make-up unit do my hair for the fashion show in the night.


The local stars, all dressed up, ready for the night’s event! We called Gurmit, “Bossly”. Cos’ don’t we look like Charlie’s Angels?


Haha, I felt like a super star autographing next to my name on this massive backdrop!


The show was very impressive! After the catwalk, we were posing for the cameras. There’s Gurmit, me, Michelle, Kelly Lin (from Taiwan), Nnadia Chan, Tavia Yeung Yi, Kevin Cheng Kar Wing (from Hong Kong)


A group picture (not wide enough to accomodate all) 😦

The following day at the shop’s opening at Pavilion Shopping Centre. Here’s a picture with big boss Mr Chiang.


And a picture with the the lovely Nnadia.


And of course, the people behind Bonia, not including Mei (3rd from left), who was there to look after all of us! Thank you so much for doing what you did, especially that night at the party! Muaks!

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!


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*


I’m so lucky to be spoilt…


Big-head doggie smooches me!!




Yummy chocolate cake! I shared it with my mom and she loved it!
