When I was a little girl, I always had my hair cut really short like a boy. My father would sit me outside the flat, put my head through a newspaper and snip away my messy hair. I never got a chance to keep really long hair.

This is a dream come true...

The song is finally up! I'm totally addicted to this song. Love it to pieces!

If you ask me what's my favourite colour, I wouldn't think pink really, but it's really a coincidence that this doll is pink, my phone is pink, my handphone pouch is pink, the blog template is pink blah blah blah...

To me pink represents love, so you can say I'm immersed in love because I've got too many pink things around.

Isn't she pretty?

Thanks to everyone who sent me sweet birthday wishes on the tagboard! I am truly blessed to have many good friends, colleagues and fans who remembered my birthday and made it special with their thoughtfulness.

I had a busy (but fun!) week, filled with celebrations with different groups of people, including the wrap party for the drama that I just finished filming (爱。特别的你). It's the first time I'm having such a major birthday celebration. Last year, I spent my birthday alone, stranded in Cape Town because I missed my flight home on the 24th. I remembered I took a bus to the beach, bought some Nandos chicken and had a picnic cum tanning session. I'm so glad this year, I'm home, spending my days in the company of people I love.

Haha! Of course got lotsa pressies!! I love them all!!! I will post pictures of my stash soon, as soon as I get my room sorted out from the wrapping paper, ribbons, boxes and cards.

Tomorrow is imaging day for my new drama role, so I better go sleep soon.
More pictures will come. :)

I love this picture because we were supposed to make stupid faces, but I forgot. *oops*
But at least I managed to catch everyone in it.
Here with me, my PA and my younger sister in the show.

I'm so amazed at how intelligent dolphins are. Although they're sea mammels, somehow there's something quite human in their eyes, so much so that, when I see the dolphins doing stunts, I wondered what's going through their heads. Does it hurt for them to jump out of the water and perform a spin? Do they feel tired having to roll around, or wave their fins at the audience?

Believe it or not, I'm actually quite shy in a bikini. Doing a studio photo shoot is fine because I'm in a confined area and can take cover. But it'll be quite silly to wear a robe at the beach, so I'm glad I have the life jacket to take away some of that "bareness". I'm quite sad because I'm the only one who is decked out in swim wear but don't get to touch the dolphins!

I'm sun-kissed from all day filming at the Pink Dolphin Lagoon.
I don't look "chao tar" in this picture, but I am already!!! *sobsob*

Flowers always makes a girl happy. That is, given the right bouquet by the right person at the right time.

In the past, I used to think that flowers are meaningless gifts because they don't last very long and happiness shouldn't be derived from flowers. Besides, they aren't exactly very cheap.

Now, I'm a little changed.

I remembered few years ago, I was in Sydney doing a shoot and there were bushes of white daisies right outside one of the hotels where we stayed. At that time, I was also lugging 12 giant stalks of red roses, which my ex beau ordered for me. So you can imagine what a delightful girl I was with the scent of red roses in my hotel room, and the sight of white daisies outside my room every morning. Superficial it may seem but you'd be surprised the joy that can be derived from simple things.

I received this sunflower from my PA yesterday because I was having one of those bad days and we happened to be filming at a mall where there was a small florist on the first floor. Now don't misunderstand, because my PA is a rather sweet boy, who due to his upbringing, is a guy who likes to spread joy and cheer to people around him.

The bouquet wasn't big, nor the flower extremely exotic, but I truly appreciated the thought of wanting to cheer me up. Actually, a simple note, a handwritten card would do the trick (much cheaper too!). Because flowers and chocolates and diamonds you can buy with money, but you can't buy a personal letter, note or card, nor force anyone to write you one if the heart is unwilling.

So there, next time, just write me a note la!

Stuck at Stage 4 of Bleach

Why can't he just die??!

I like brainless fighting games because other than letting me kill (no pun intended) time, it distracts me from the emotional turbulence I go through sometimes during filming. I'm not addicted to it, nor the sort who needs to play and play until I pass a stage. The PSP (kindly loaned from a friend) is purely a recreational tool utilised during filming mostly.

4 kids sharing a packet of Mamee. How loving!

I said in an interview before that I'd like to have 4 children. Today I had to play with them as part of a scene. Important lesson learnt: If I really want to have 4 children, I better have them early, otherwise got no energy left to play with them.

Although sometimes children can be real brats, most of the time they're wonderful and beautiful. Having them around is such a joy and I'm quite glad to get to work with many of them for this drama.

Hmm...maybe I was meant to be a teacher?

This picture was taken by my PA at a shoot I did the other day. Looks easy, but I actually had to use my (non-existent) ab strength to hold the pose. Tough la but at least I can train my abs too! Haha!

I received this bouquet of sunflowers at the end of the shoot. So all that pain in the abs was worth it! Haha! I was so thrilled because sunflowers always makes me happy. Don't they look like they're smiling at you?

When I was much younger, my mom made me learn piano. At that time I dreaded every Sunday because attending that 1 hour of piano lesson was torturous! I sucked at theory and didn't really care what quavers and crotchets were, so I quited by the time I was Grade 3.

Over the years, I continued to play some Clayderman pieces on my own but have lots of trouble reading the notes that go beyond the 5 staff lines. Now, I somewhat regret not having made it that far, because music can be very therapeutic, especially when I don't have the energy left at the end of the day for any other recreation.

This is a picture of me rekindling my interest in playing the piano. My co-star is supposed to be a very good pianist and this teacher is there to help him, but I decided to steal some time off while waiting to hit the keys a bit. :)

Recently I've encountered several instances where anger gets out of hand, but amidst all the fury, I'm glad I managed to find some peace within myself. And it has also made me realise a few things that I'd like to share with everyone.

It's easy for me to comment, because in most of these instances, I'm not the one ignited. But watching has helped me learn.

Why do people quarrel, or have conflicts and disagreements? And why do some of them evolve into a fight, some into lengthy cold wars while others are amicably resolved?

I suspect it's got something to do with expectations and human being's inherent self-centredness. I may be wrong though, it's just my thoughts.

Perhaps we are often too concerned with what we want, what we think, what we need, what we believe, what we should have, what we like and dislike, that we start to form expectations in our interactions with other people. Sometimes we expect others to know, with the all too familiar retort "You should know....", that we get pissed when they don't.

Today, some tempers flew at work. From my third party's point of view, I can see what made both persons angry (although that doesn't make any one of them more right than the other). But if you mute the yelling and flush away the anger, you will realise that both of them are in fact working towards the same goal -- that is get the job done as quickly as possible. Then why quarrel?

I guess, sometimes, we are too focused on our own feelings, that we do not try to understand where the other person is coming from. We do not see their intentions the way they intended, but based on our perceptions. We concentrate on what is offensive (be it the tone it was said or the actions carried out), rather than hear the actual message that is being conveyed.

Sure, we want to vent out the frustration and anger bottled up inside, we make harsh comments to put others down in an attempt to gain an edge over the other person, so that we can feel better. But have we ever considered the effect it has on the other people around us, who although may not be on the receiving end of the anger, but are still experiencing the tremors and heat of the eruption?

Anger is ugly and I've seen it bring out the worst in people.

So that's why I try to find peace and learn to appreciate the many different personalities of people around me. Life is too short for us to waste on anger, because there are more meaningful emotions like love to experience and immerse ourselves in.
