When I was at my previous advertising/marketing job, my greatest job satisfaction was seeing the launch of a campaign I put together.
When I first became a DJ a year plus ago, I asked myself where would my job satisfaction come from?
At first, it was when I was able to operate the control panel.
Then, it was when I heard my own voice over the radio.
Then, it was when I flew solo, having my own program.

But today, I experienced the greatest job satisfaction of all.
I met a bunch of really nice and sincere people, the Singapore Doves (Aska's fan club).
They came all the way to Mediacorp, in the rain, just to pass me some presents, a card, a letter and a cake.

It was so sweet and touching, for me.
And now I know, the greatest job satisfaction of being a DJ, is when you get to know that there are listeners out there who listens to you, and appreciates you for who you are.
Thank you Michelle, Andrew, June, Michel, Carina, Yi Ling, Serynn, Shu Fang, Dorathy, 美美 and 豆豆. For giving me the chance to feel this way.

And Liza (did u think I'd miss u out? ;) ), thank you for all your efforts in making the card and the mug. They're beautiful, I can't express enough how much I love them. And all I can say again, is THANK YOU!!! =)

Beyond Excitement

I'm going to see my 'gods of rock' in 3 hrs time....
I'm way beyond any words to explain my excitement right now...

They say 'good friends are hard to come by...'

And mine came in a bundle... I must have been a saint in my past life to deserve such awesome friends.


Hug it out baby!!

Why can't everyone be in 1 single shot...

I hope I'm not maxing out my luck this lifetime.
(And I hope they feel the same about me...)

TV addict month

Its the Olympics month, once every 4 years. The sports event of the world.
Its the 1 month that I will get glued in front of the TV for most of my free time (except for work... and mahjong of cos).
The few MUST-WATCH events for me are Gymnastics, Diving, Swimming, and Table Tennis.
But I almost hate it when I watch competitions with the Singapore teams involved. It is pure mental torture.
My heart is constantly racing, ready to pop out anytime, I'm basically a nervous wreck.
FWAH. Like can kennah heart attack anytime.
But I hope they can feel my cheers all the way from Singapore.

Anyway, I've discovered the 'MUST-HAVE's for most female athletes.
Most of them have at least 5 to 10 pins on their heads, each.
Some have so many pins I could barely see their hair.
So, hairpins gets my vote for the 'most lucrative business during Olympics'.

** Update: GO Singapore!!!! We are going thru to the Table Tennis Finals, so we definitely bringing back a Olympics medal!!! I'm so so so happy I can cry.

Tell my fortune

The blue moon arrived, I went on MSN.
And an interesting conversation took place.

A: Hey! I met this super power fortune teller! Wanna go check it out?
Me: Interesting...
A: She's really accurate! She knew all about my past!!!!
Me: Why would I wanna know about my past? No one knows it better than I do.
A: ... What about your future? That you would wanna know!
Me: What if she tells me I'm gonna die tomorrow? Does that mean I stop living today?
A: ......

Don't get me wrong, fortune telling is indeed interesting, mind boggling even. I'm all for it.
But isn't the unpredictability of life is what that pushes you on. Feeding on the hope that tomorrow COULD bring you more than what you had today.

31st July 2008: I'm 1 year old!

There are some certain days in a year that will mean a whole lot to each individual.
For some, its christmas, or new years. For me, its my birthday, and today.
Once a year, during my birthday, I feel so loved by everyone in my life that cares. Those gestures of love are not something one can replaced easily.

And today, the 31st of July, also made its way to my 'special days calendar'.
Because today is the day that I turn 1 year old, at Y.E.S 93.3
Time flew, and I went from a green horn to a... well... pretty much still a newbie.
So much has happened in the last 365 days, some were good, some were rocky, and most of it fabulous.
Initially it took a lot of getting used to. Getting used to public scrutiny, doing everything knowing that someone else may be observing you, and of course having total strangers hurling insults at you every chance they have.
Some feedback were constructive, some were ridiculous. At the top of my ridiculous list, someone asked me to die or go to jail so he/she don't have to listen to my voice on 933 anymore.
Honestly, that hurt. Initially.
Then, I thought to myself 'Damn, I'm new at this job, if no one else is giving you a chance, the least you could do is give yourself a chance.' And I did. And I'm so glad I did.
The past year had been nothing less than amazing. I've enjoyed every single moment of it.
I've found my perfect job.
I still have so much to learn, and I aim to push myself further and harder.
But all these would of course had not been possible without someone else in my life.
Someone who had been giving me chances, realizing my dream of becoming a DJ, giving me opportunities whenever she could. I can't express my gratitude enough.
Everyone has a 伯乐 in their life.
And I'm extremely lucky I've found mine.

Hong Kong Tales

Hong Kong was AWESOME!!!
We were kept busy with eating and shopping..........
errr... I meant working. Seriously. It was a busy work trip.
The money spent was.. well.. ALOT by my standard, but well worth it I guess. (Apart from the 2 bloody left feet story)
In summary, the trip was very satisfying!

The press conference hall was designed to cater to Wilber's new song 转机, the banquet hall transformed into scenes you would see at an airport. The ushers were dressed as air stewardesses, and emcee as a pilot. HOT.

And then there was a 2-D flat airplane on stage. :D

Flat as it is, the plane door opens up and Wilber walked out from it. Quite grand. I was tempted to take a walk myself, but was too shy to ask.

I liked the runway, and photo whored on it quite a bit. Sadly, the pictures are not with me right now.

Wilber and an air ticket larger than life, or himself for that matter.
"Where are you going Wilber? Can I tag along?"

Up close and personal.

Upper, closer, and personal-ler.. or more personal.. with Hins.

And then we got bored in the cab on the way to the train station.

And then worse...

Oh! Introduction please! Alex/Junliang, the 933 winner that went to Hong Kong with me! I call him didi (弟弟).
Cute? Ladies, please take a queue number. This single lad has lotsa other ladies after him! (I think lah..)

Yes.. we were that bored...

The boredom went on to the train station...

Charlie's Angels, with some luggage.

Romeo and Juliet.. and Juliet's barang barang.

There's more pictures, but it's 4.22am in the morning and its time for me to rot in bed.

To be continued...

The story of 2 left feet

I've never been much of a dancer. So whenever people asked me to dance, or go for dance classes, my reply was always 'no la... I have 2 left feet. cannot dance one.' which pretty much means that I'm as clumsy as it gets when it comes to dancing.

I kinda knew this myself, but never did I expect a complete stranger to confirm this for me.
Being a shoe freak, everytime I travel, I'd bring back some shoes from the foreign land. The recent trip to Hong Kong was no exception.
I fell in love with this pair of Jack Purcell the second I saw it.

Jack Purcell Leather OX in Pearl White

And when I was getting ready for the 933 POTP street concert on Sunday, I took out my shoes, hands trembling with excitement, eager to wear my fabulous news shoes, I saw this...

My heart crumbled into a thousand million pieces right there and then...

Now thats SGD $90.73 down the drain. I know I can't dance, but I certainly did not need a stranger telling me that...

Cure for insomnia

I've always had a mild case of insomnia. Which explains my really dark eye rings...
There are times when I can't sleep at all the whole night, and its seriously torturing. U can toss and turn the whole night, get frustrated at ur pillow, blanket, mattress, the noise from the streets, or even the faintest light seeping thru ur curtains, blaming everything in sight thats making u NOT sleep.
I've had a whole lot of experiences in the above mentioned.
But I think I've found a cure for my insomnia, at least it works for me.
I've recently started to watch documentaries before I sleep. Discovery, history channel, nat geo, animal planet. U name it, I watch it. And I've learnt alot! The history of Russia, China, how insects mate... And the best part of it, I fall asleep easily after the show.. :D so now, i'm gaining knowledge and sleeping well!
But of course, there are some documentaries that doesn't work that well.
Last night, I watched the FBI files on discovery. And it didn't end til 5 am, and it was so exciting i couldn't not watch it.
So I slept at 5am. BLEH.
So, my point is, choose ur 'before-bed' tv show wisely.

Sammi Sammi Sammi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's finally my turn to do the POTP special this week. And I was so excited!!! because I'm doing one on sammi, my idol for 12 years.
I had really high hopes for it. Stayed back in the office til at least 3am for a few night just to finish it. and I think the hardest part of it is writing the script.
But as i was doing the special, it reminded me of why i liked her so much in the first place. Looking back at her achievements, I was so touched by all her efforts and hardwork.
And it was then I decided that I want to be like her, putting in all i have to achieve something.
I spent alot of time and efforts on it, and i almost pulled my hair out at some point in time. but i'm not sure if its as well as I had hoped it would be...
Listen to it, and let me know?
Sunday 2pm.

Would love your feedback cos i really really put in alot to make it the best I could... :)

6月6日 It's your Birthday!





Diet Vs Health

I've recently fallen ill again.
I came to discover the cause and effect between going on a diet and getting sick. well, at least for me.
Everytime I came to the decision of shedding some (not-so) baby-fats, I fall ill instead.
The last time I tried a diet, I fell sick.
This time around, I merely had a 1 second THOUGHT about losing so weight, I fell sick, yet again.
I conclude that I shall never even as much as think about losing weight again.

Who says you can't fly for 30 bucks in Singapore?
We did! And within the first few days it opened.
Hoot hoot!

Overwhelming with excitment! Hoot hoot!

We're in!!! Hooooot hooooot!


七仔 came along... for free. Lucky him.

When did 七仔 became the main lead of the event?

"I'm flying~! I'm Flying~!"

"We're flying~! We're flying~!"

Who else wants a picture?

Me! Me!

I get my turn with 七仔. =D

May the force be with you, LEGO!

I finally found the time to complete my LEGO STAR WARS!
Upon completing the game, I realised I've spent more than 55 hours on my PSP just on that game.
I either am obsessed with the Force (which means I'm a qualified geek) or I just have too much free time on my hands (means I need to start finding more constructive missions to accomplish).
I choose to believe in the fomer...

Nonetheless, I decided to capture my moment of success. =D

Next mission: Grand Theft Auto
(I would have completed the game long ago if I could just learn to maneuver the damn helicopter...)

Cantonese Part 2

I'm being a little ambitious... Ok... Maybe VERY ambitious...
Wanting to fly before I learn to walk.
You can be sure when I attempt this song in KTV the music is going to be REALLY loud...
Ha. Ha. Ha.

But how can anyone not like this medley??? The best of 2 biggest stars right now...

Wednesday, April 9, 2008


I have to admit this, I've always had this thing for cantonese songs, HK drama serial and movies, and of course, cantonese the language itself. Ironically, I don't speak a single word of it. Haha. I've always wanted to pick it up, but sadly, I can't even get the pronounciation right.

My attempts always make my cantonese speaking friends burst out in laughter.


I'd go "ge~ei doo qi~in...?"

But I try really hard learning to sing the cantonese songs. A few success stories, and during the ktv sessions, if the music is really loud and my mic really soft, I can actually get by without anyone noticing... hurhurhur. (I am really quite proud of that.)

So, this is my 'new' song i want to conquer, 'new' only to me as it is a really old song. But the lyrics are so damn fast that my tongue often end up in knots... I'm considering marrying a cantonese, just so that I'd have someone to learn the language with...

4/8 It's your birthday!

Here you go JM!
Let me know if its accurate. :)

全新的弦歌寄意,现在让你通过弦歌 blog 点播歌曲!
将你的寄语,想听的歌曲,和想听到点播的日期留在留言板上就 ok 了。

Ok ok, if you wanna rush in a dedication on 10th March, and its too late by snail mail, go to Xian Ge Ji Yi's new blog, its really easy, just leave us ur dedication in the comments box, and we will try our best to read it out on that day!


That pretty much sums up what I've been up to.
With the new shift changes coming, I've been lucky enough to get my own shift (for 1 hour before JiaFa joins me lah...). JiaFa, seeing my keeness to try my hand at the control panel as much as possible has kindly offered to go on MC more often.


I sure am glad he was joking.

So so, new shift timing is from 9pm to 11pm.
I am glad to leave behind the torturous days of having to wake up before the birds, but I must say I'd miss the other 2, a little bit lah.

Either one of them left a packet of tissue paper on my windscreen today. Its a daily little game we play amongst ourselves. Mostly, its receipts, used parking coupons or pieces of scrap paper. But there'd be an occassional spark of creativity, e.g. a rubber band tied around my door handle.

I am wrecking my brains right now cominging up innovative ways to finish this game before I leave for my new shift. *Evil laughter*

Y.E.S 93.3 FM 庆18 有你同行, 什么都不怕!

A day of laughter, joy, and more laughter.
Because of CK and his beautiful outfit.
First of all, congrats to yellow team who the contest fair and square!
Secondly, BLUE TEAM, 我们对不起你们!But you guys are still the best!
I'm secretly hoping that blue team don't have to honour the 'punishment' of shooting the “败给你” video...

The look of our team: 咖啡王子. But somehow I ended up looking like PAP...

A group photo before show starts...

Then CK took a sudden liking to Liyi's nice long legs...

The invasion of the flinstones.

Our blue team that performed really well! Don't be sad, we try again next year k? We will do a super zai one!

Andy!!! The man responsible for the pictures!

Actually, eve has more pictures... but... as they are not the most flattering pictures... so........... haha.

Celebration: teochew mui at Zion Road.

Speechless in Hong Kong (Part 1)

The holidays always go by too fast. 1 week in Hong Kong went by in a flash, and I can't get enough!
Although by the end of the trip, I had to come back to reality for the reasons below:
1. I have to work.
2. I think PF misses me.
3. I think Cruz misses me.
4. I don't have a visa to stay longer than 30 days.
5. I have no money left.
6. I cannot speak cantonese and very little people understood what I was saying.
7. I ran out of money to extend my hotel room stay.
8. I didn't try my luck at the casinos to win a million bucks that allows me to extend my trip.
9. I ran out of money to eat.
10. I almost had no money left to take a cab to the airport by the end of the trip.

Nonetheless, the trip was fanta-bulous!
The food was so impressive that I think I might need to find a sponsor help me lose weight... Marie France maybe? Then I can be Christie Chung's friend. Though my friend was not at all supportive "cannot... later u take photo with her you will cover her up and take up all the space in the ad."
Thanks ah...

Getting around in Hong Kong is quite a pain in the ass though as neither of us can speak cantonese, and thus, this trip is titled 'Speechless In Hong Kong' (spin off of 'Sleepless in Seattle').
S insisted on flaunting her 'cantonese private limited' though.

A normal conversation with a vendor would go like this:
S: (Pointing to a product, speaks in cantonese) 几多钱啊? (How much is this?)
Shopkeeper: $*&*&^%*&%^&R$%^%$ (Reply in cantonese)
S: (Confused look, in mandarin) sorry I cannot understand...
Shopkeeper gives a "THEN-WHY-TALK-TO-ME-IN-CANTONESE look" and replies in mandarin.
Me: Stand one corner sniggering away, entertained.

Pictures time! (Part 1 only... I'm not even done downloading them!)

First few moments in Hong Kong airport...

...was spent checking who has SMSed me during the 4hrs flight.

And we met a really cute baby on the train ride from T1 to T2

First meal in Hong Kong...

Spicy noodles (炸酱面)

Wanton Noodles (鲜虾云吞面)

The first meal wasn't luxurious, but its only the start...

The hotel room that bears an uncanny resemblance to our local Hotel 81...but costs 4 times more (I think...).
It's a 3 star hotel, seriously. But the location was great, can't complain.

My first Octopus card!

And then... the crazy eating journey begins...

We ate too much, as you can see. Seriously way too much. There were more food, but by the time all the food came we were too busy wolfing down the food to take photos. The egg tarts were exceptionally impressive. I exclaimed loudly "I've never eaten egg tarts THIS GOOD!" That is, until I tried the ones in Macau.

We ate so much we could barely walk out of the restaurant... that is until dinner time came...

The dinner sent us right to heaven. If I'm rich, I'd hire the chef to Singapore and make him my personal chef.
Seriously, its THAT good.
