After watching Asia Pop Diva A-Mei's concert last night, I woke up at 5:30 am to get ready to go to Kuantan for JS Superstars Singing Competition 2010. (I just slept for 2 hours as i was practicing my songs till 3am) For this time, I will not be a judge but I will be the guest artiste to grace the event.

This is my first time visitng Kuantan. After a quick Brunch, we are now standing-by at the backstage. (PS: I am now blogging inside a tent behind the stage) The competition is going to start very soon. I can see that all the contestants are already prepared.

Each contestant is supposed to sing either Jacky Cheung or Sammi Cheng's song. The judges for today is Guo Xiang and Boon Huat, whereas the emcee for today is Li Qiang from AI FM. Well, for this competition, the most important tip is not to immitate the original singer, but to sing with one's own style. Also, the most important element is the "feel" of the song. So Best of luck to every one.

I think I need to warm up myself first as I am going to perform one of Sammi's songs and also my new Mandarin single "Firefly".

PS: If anyone would want to participate in this competition, you can still log on to Sports Toto website for more info as there are few more rounds of prelims. =)

昨晚看完了《阿密特》演唱會之後,我就在家裏一直練歌到淩晨3點鐘。才睡了不過兩個小時多就起身準備到関丹,擔任Sports Toto《張學友鄭秀文歌唱比賽》初賽的表演嘉賓。

這是我第一次來到関丹,還真的很期待的。用餐過後,現在的我已在後臺準備了,當然所有的參賽者也都陸陸續續到來了。

今天的每一位參賽者只需要表演一首張學友或鄭秀文曾經演繹的一首歌曲。今天坐鎮把關的有《你好,Mr. Siao!》的導播陳溫法大哥及著名填詞人張國祥大哥,大會司儀則是上星期我剛上他節目的AI FM DJ 理強。

這不是一場模仿大賽,剛才和評審們閒聊了一會兒,評審要尋找的是唱出自己風格的參賽者,即好像要把張學友的歌唱成自己的歌。。。天啊,好高的難度!我個人認爲,把歌曲的Feel 唱出來才是最重要的,祝大家好運咯,加油!

好了,我得去開聲準備了。我待會兒會把鄭秀文的《放不低》和《曾是你寶貝》雙語一曲演繹,當然還會帶來我的最新單曲,也是由張國祥大哥填詞的《螢光》,大家洗耳恭聽吧!

PS:在此呼喻大家,如果還想報名參加的,還有幾場的初賽等着你哦!欲知更多想詳情,請趕快遊覽Sports Toto的網站吧!

Boutique Owner Conference

Sometime ago, I was introduced to the boutique owners of Avon during the conference for Avon Boutique owners in a local hotel.

I arrived at the hotel very early in the morning to get myself ready for the big day. Around 10am, when the conference started, I was at the backstage, while my heart was beating fast. As the master of ceremony announced, "Put your hands together for Miss SOO WINCCI, the new spokesperson for Anew Skin Care", I walked to the stage and did my beauty queen wave. I was overwhelmed by the crowd’s cheers and applause.

Right after the introduction session, I took photos with the boutique owners until we all went for a rest in the hotel room for the evening event.




After changing into my Carven Ong’s gown, I went to the dinner hall and stand by for my performance. The theme for that night was ancient China. Everyone dressed up the best they could. I performed 2 of my own songs; and and 2 cover songs; by Christina Aguilera and Dato Siti’s .

I am touched by the hospitality of the Avon’s team and their working spirit is superb. I am proud to be part of Avon and for me this is not just a usual business relationship but it's more like a family member of Avon.

There will be more to come, hence stay tuned =)

Ice Kacang Puppy Love《初 恋红豆冰》



Few Days ago i just attended the premier for our local malaysia movie titled . The dress code for the night was formal wear. Hence, I gotten a dress from Carven Ong and headed to Miko Salon to style up my hair.

Around 7pm I reached millennium hotel. All the celebrity gathered at the hotel then they would fetch us to pavilion for the red carpet ceremony. As I reached the hotel, I saw most of the star were in semi formal dress.Then I thought to myself,"Oh no I think i over dressed." Luckily, my partner Chris Tong dressed in gown as well. So Both of us walked the red carpet together in our luxurious gown.






The movie started around 9pm, before the movie started, Ah Niu and the cast eg Gary Chao, Lee Xin Jie,Penny Tai, Fish Leong and etc gathered on stage to greet everyone. All of the cast purposely flew back from overseas to support this local film

My Opinion: Frankly speaking, before i stepped into the cinema, I did not expect much from the film. However, I must salute to this film and I could proudly say that this is one of the best malaysian movie i ever watched. It was such a funny and heart touching movie. The story line was simple but the soul of the movie really kept us concentrated and entertained. Even my partner Chris who needed to leave early as she has early shooting the other day could not help herself but just remained seated till the end. Also, mostly everyone was in tears as it was very touching. Besides that, the director really brought out the character of each role. Moreover, the scenery and quality of the film is superb. If I would to grade this movie, i would mark this movie 200%. Seriously, watch it and you will understand =)

The most touching part was at the end of the movie, all the casts broke into tears as everyone stood up and applauded. I must say I am impressed with Ah Niu's hardwork and spirit. This movie had been his dream for almost 8 years. Also, that night I am really touched as the whole hall was filled with our local malaysian celebrity. The night really signified the unity among malaysian celebrity.

I just want to say, we as Malaysian should support our own local artiste as there are so many talented people. Being an artiste in Malaysia is not as easy as other country, therefore, we all should always stay united=).


Once again this movie really made MALAYSIA BOLEH=)

几天前,我出席了《初恋红豆冰的》首映。当晚的dress code 是晚礼服。所以,我就穿Carven Ong 的晚礼服然后到了Miko Salon去弄头发。
大概7点我就到达了Millennium Hotel。所有的艺人们都在那集合。然后,都有专车载我们到达目的地去走红地毯。可是,当我到达酒店时,我看见很多艺人都没有穿晚礼服。我心想,“惨 了,我想我穿得太隆重了。”当时我真的很想夺起来。可是,幸亏,我的Partner 童冰玉也穿晚礼服。 而且,我们也不约而同set 了差不多一样的头发。真的是心灵相通。=)

首映大概9点开始。开始前,所有有份参与这部戏的演员们都在台上感谢我们所有人的到来.所有艺人如曹格,栋梁,静如,阿牛 等等都从国外飞回来支持这部片。

好棒的首映礼,,好感人的友谊,,好有诚意的电 影~~《初 恋红豆冰》~~赞!

AVON RECOGNITION

I checked into Pan Pacific Hotel one night before the main event. We reached the hotel around 10pm. However, I did not go to bed early as i have to sign 300 Cds.



Singing CDs in my room

The second morning, I woke up 7am in the morning to have my make up done. Around 9.45pm I changed into my gown. The name of the gown was "Jewel of the Pacific" This was the gown which I wore during Miss World Pageant in South Africa. After wearing my crown and my sash, I went down and stand by for the main event.

As I reached the ball room, something caught my sight. I saw the banner for ANEW White with my face on it. This was the first time ever i saw the end product of that day's photo shoot. Nonetheless, I quickly took a picture with it.



With My Make Up Artist


ANEW WHITE BANNER

The event started around 11am. As they called my name, I walked gracefully up to the stage from the main door. With my crown and sash on, it really brought back a lot of miss world memories to me.
Standing By

Subsequently, I shared my very own experience of using ANEW White product on stage. At the same time, I gave everyone of them one of my singing album as a little present for them.Then, we all have a group picture together.



Rozita, Mansoor, Me and Maizawati


After that, I went to another ballroom for sound check, as I will be performing later. I also met Marsha there.

With Elaine

After rehearsal, I went back to my room and quickly took a quick nap as I did not sleep much yesterday.

Around 2pm, I changed and went down to the holding room for the next agenda.



Taking Pictures Backstage

The event started around 2.30pm. The whole ballroom was filled up with glitters. After most of the awards were presented to all the top seller, Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil arrived. She was the guest of honor for the event.

Lastly, two top winners were crowned on stage and I performed "Seindah Biasa" as the closing song.





I really enjoyed myself with AVON family. Everyone from Avon is so dedicated and always filled with high spirits. Also, I am truly honored to be the spokesperson for Avon ANEW Skincare =)!!!
