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!

JJ and I at the post party!

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 final 10 of us on stage.

Jet-lagged in LA Day 1

19 hours of flying and here I am at Los Angeles.

It is now 2.30 am in Los Angeles and I’m barely awake. It feels like only yesterday that I was at Resort World attending Star Awards. I guess technically it was “yesterday” since I’m now one day behind everyone back home.

Haven’t been up to much today because I’m a little jet lagged. I had my neck twisted in all possible odd angles while trying to figure out the most comfortable sleeping position on the plane.

The weather here is cool. Boots, shawl, jacket kind of cool. Comfortably warm in the day and really quite chilly at night. I’m not sure I packed the right clothes but oh well, that gives me an excuse to shop!

Outside LAX waiting for the shuttle bus to take us to the car rental place!

My first proper meal of the day was at a place called Good Earth along Ventura Blvd. As the name suggests, they serve healthy food.

I had Cajun Chicken with Brown Rice, a Spinach salad and a glass of orange juice.

Off to North Hollywood, Friends Beauty Supply, which is the place to be for make-up artistes/hair-stylists/actors etc. They stock all sort of make-up, hair products, prosthetics, special effects etc. You can get anything that is used in the studios here!

All the shops here at Universal City Walk are closed for the night but the music is still blasting through some speakers that I couldn't see. It seemed like music just played from the sky!

My second post Star Awards indulgence -- Caramalised Apple with Nuts! Everything is mega-size here, even the apples! So yummy!

April Delight

This has been a big month for me, in more ways than one. It started off with a Nespresso machine as a birthday gift.

Then there was winning the Media Darling Award in last Sunday’s (18 April 2010) Star Awards organised by MediaCorp Singapore.

My outfit for the night was a D&G ensemble. My stylist Jeremy improvised with the fishnet stockings and a bodysuit underneath because it was so sheer. I was freezing the whole night! The dress had to be flown back to Milan the next day.

And a double birthday celebration from my fans!

After the awards, my very sweet fans were waiting for me outside and celebrated my birthday for me again. I say again because we had an earlier gathering to celebrate my birthday already!

I got cupcakes because they know I’m trying to stay trim and fit. How thoughtful!
