The Making of a new Me


最近为了新戏 「乐在双城」忙着改造型。这已经是我第二次上发廊。竟然需要动用到四大精英,真是让我受宠若惊。

到底是什么改变需要如此真容强大呢?

敬请期待。

In preparation for my new drama “Happiness in Twin Cities”, I had to undergo a major hair revamp. This is already the second time at the salon and I am so well taken care of by 4 extremely dedicated and professional hair experts.

What is this major transformation all about?

Haha, you will find out soon!

My Special Dress!

I was really excited about this dress because it is a collaboration between Keith Png and I. I showed him a picture of what I like, he chose the fabrics, the colours and made it come to life. Thank you so much Keith for the beautiful dress!

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.

wedding25

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

Belinda Lee and Trey, freelance stylist.

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.

Dr Georgia Lee and I, both in blue. 🙂

This is Gary, stylist from Passion.

"Ah Bu" was so happy last night!

The couple, as they move from table to table. The "brothers" look like they are strategising the next move.

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!

Wedding of the Year – Part 1

It was the Wedding of The Year as we celebrate the marriage of Christopher Lee and Fann Wong, and true to its name, I was completely awed by the effort put into organising this massive wedding. As I walked to the ballroom of Shangri-La, where the wedding was held, the lobby was quiet and there were even hotel staff holding placards to another event.

I was not ready for what was to come.

If you’ve been to Shangri-La’s ballroom, you will know that there a little “runway” which leads to the ballroom where panels lined the side and hotel staff stand by each panel to greet and usher you in. Last night, that turned into the Hall of Fame. At the end of this “runway” were throngs of photographers and journalists all camped out in a nice corner, taking photos, videos and interviews of the guests who arrived. You almost can’t slip into the reception unnoticed, unless you turned up late of course.

Into the reception and recording of 《芳心有李》, a variety show dedicated to tell the story of the lovebirds right up to their wedding day, was already in progress. There were bottlenecks everywhere, and mind you, the reception area is huge! Everyone was just catching up with one another, old friends, old colleagues. I was quite overwhelmed, it’s like you see so many people you know, but you don’t have time to properly say hi to one before another familiar nudge turns you around to yet another familiar face.

The dress code for the night was glamorous. Long sweeping gowns, beautifully done-up hair and extensive jewelry display. People you meet at work who don’t normally have make-up on now look completely different with make-up and shoulder-baring dresses. It was a gorgeous night to celebrate the union of a gorgeous couple.

I have over 40 pictures to share, but right now, I can only show some as I edit and compile the rest of it in the next entry. Look out for it!

wedding8

The ballroom was transformed into a rather magical land. Regardless of what the intended theme was, I felt like Alice in Wonderland.

wedding9

These table decorations remind me of the magical woods. Something out of an Enid Blyton book when I was a kid.

wedding10

The newly-weds. With so many people crowding around them at each time, we get a better view from the two large screens placed on each end of the ballroom.

wedding11

"Half-time", we got out of the ballroom for a breather. Here's Jesseca and I.

wedding5

They have a standee of them! With so many guests invited, those who didn't get a chance to pose for a picture with the real couple had an alternative. Haha! Reminds me of the caricatures from their movie THE WEDDING GAME, except this one looks more like them!

wedding6

Here's a group of people who work long and hard, behind the scenes, on a typical work day in MediaCorp.

wedding12

Justin's the stylist for my long drama YOUR HAND IN MINE. He gets me the beautiful clothes you see me wear on television for the drama.

These tablets allowed guests to write their well wishes to the couple. So little space, so much to say...

vPOST=SHOPPING!!

I’m thrilled to be fronting the vPOST campaign because I love online shopping! I do shop in malls too, but the best thing about online shopping sites is that they have no opening hours and there’s greater variety, perfect for the kind of schedule I have right now. With all these advancements in technology, shipping items from overseas becomes much more convenient without the exorbitant price tags too! I can’t wait to start shopping and share my purchases with you!

vpost5

很开心能当 vPOST 的代言人,因为我经常都有在网上购物!哈哈,有时要到商场购物会很累,而且也未必能找到自己要的。网上就不同了,不但可以有很多选择,也不用受到营业时间的影响。现在要从外国的网站购买物品也不用担心运输问题啦!

vpost1

That's Jeremy the stylist getting cheeky with me as Ryan the hairstylist looks on with amusement.

vpost4

Jeremy making sure everything looks perfect for the picture.

vpost3

This is the same styling team behind my Star Awards look too! The photographer didn't want to have his identity publicised (Thanks J nonetheless!). Jeremy, Joanne, Ryan, Bryan and Xueling (from left to right).

vpost2

With the vPOST client and representatives from the creative agency. Thank you all for having me, now you've given me a perfect excuse to shop more! Haha!

Backstage at the Awards

These pictures were taken using Gary’s camera. Thanks Gary for putting them on a disc for me!
刚刚才拿到这些我用 Gary 的相机拍的照片。谢谢你哦!想考虑买他的相机,可是现在想暂时挪后这个计划。

台庆当晚的三个男人

坦白说,我对早期的电视节目不太熟悉,所以很多台庆上播出的影片,除了近期的电视剧,很多我都印象模糊。小时候的我不爱看电视,所以加入这行也从来不是我小时候所有过的梦想。回想起童年,觉得自己当初的想像力很丰富,喜欢编故事,喜欢写作,喜欢幻想。现在的我,正是步入了成年,开始理智,开始剖解,也就渐渐失去了当年敢于想像的勇气。

台庆除了让我更了解自己,也给我机会盛装出席。哈哈,那晚的光彩多亏三个男人。

show7

Jeremy 是我的stylist. 服装、首饰、发型和化妆都是由他决定的。那漂亮的礼服是他帮我找的,是明年CK盛夏的服装。我很幸运在这个时候有机会穿哦!

show8

Ryan帮我梳的造型。

show11

Bryan 是我的化妆师。这是从他的Facebook 偷来的照片。因为那天他忙,所以我没有机会和他拍照。

我最喜欢压轴项目。因为服装,灯光,音乐都很壮观,尤其是当湘萍飞起来的时候,真的很漂亮!
