What's the life of someone in this industry? Well firstly, there are no such things as weekdays or weekends, it's just whether you are working or you are resting. They come in waves, you could have a million jobs and events to do for a couple weeks at a go and then suddenly, you got 5 days without absolutely nothing to do.
Monday started off with a meeting with a potential sponsor. Then headed off to do my hair at Monsoon with my boys, which was an emotional rollercoaster.. I had in my mind a particular colour which I thought I could really rock, but things never go to plan do they?
So anyway, the hair dresser told me that my hair was either gonna end up being dark blue (can't see the colour unless under light) or bright blue (Ah Beng style). I was so disappointed and didn't know what to do, but in the end, I decided! No I MUST DYE MY HAIR, I DON'T CARE! I WANNA TRY SOMETHING FUN FOR A CHANGE, so I bleached my hair, and this came out!
Haha but thank god the people at Monsoon know what they are doing, and they eventually helped me reach this colour! Even though it wasn't really what I wanted at first, and it changed colour pretty fast after that (now it is ash-green), I am still very grateful for their help, it could have ended up much worse.
Whew so okay, after that the next day Director Jack and I headed down to 88.3FM for our Chinese radio interview! Hehe actually now I think I am pretty comfortable speaking in Chinese.. Well, it's far from perfect and I think I still sound weird but it's a vast improvement from when I started 6 months ago!
Then at night we headed down to the Breadtalk Group's annual Dinner & Dance at the Shangri-La Hotel . SUPER FUN NIGHT! Haha, we got to eat fantabulous food and wine (hehe we even knocked back a few shots of whisky before we got up on stage), and performed songs for the audience.
The very next day was the most important day of all, THE GALA PREMIERE OF AH BOYS TO MEN 2!
We had to head down early in the morning (not easy as we were still a little tipsy from the night before) to Resort Worlds Sentosa to rehearse for our big day! Then in the afternoon we held press conferences and before we knew it, we were shovelling down our lunch at 4pm (was dying of hunger when we were being interviewed that's why I didn't talk much).
Then we suited up and ate a quick dinner (at 6pm) and got ready to walk the red carpet down RWS. We got ferried onto location in these really awesome posh cars and then walked down the red carpet like a boss!
I'll let the pictures do the talking...
All in all, it's been a great week, and we've been busy doing the promotional events and running around doing all sorts of things.. Am I tired? Hell yeah! Am I Happy? A BIGGER HELL YEAH! I love my job, and hopefully, with everyone's support, I can carry on living my dream, getting more projects and continue acting. Really hoping that I won't have to wait long for my next GALA! :)
