3 February 2013 Sunday | 18:47 | Concerts, Pass Me the Mic
We’re done with one-twelfth of the year already. Enjoying 2013 so far?
Masterclass sounds really atas. Haha.
Surely they had to give me a certificate embossed in gold ink after I blew my cash card on fifteen ERP gantries and three full days of parking in the central business district! Haha.
It was great to get away from the daily grind, and be inspired and energized all over again. Thanks to the Media Development Authority for the generous subsidy, and renowned Australian radio guru Steve Ahern for the enriching programme.

Concert goers were spoilt for choice in January; I only attended three gigs. Rainie Yang, while nursing a flu, was all earnest in establishing rapport with the audience. Not content being just another pretty face, she was determined to prove her critics wrong — which explains her various stunts.
Sally Yeh, who turns 52 later this year, put us all to shame with her superb stamina. She was dancing throughout the show! The affable veteran impressed her usual target audience, and probably scored new and younger fans along the way.
A*Mei never, ever fails to deliver. The repertoire may disappoint at certain shows, but her showmanship and powerhouse vocals always leave the audience clamouring for more. All she has to do is say “Hello”, or merely mutter “Singapore”, and the crowd goes crazy. The weight gain — which resulted in some merciless teasing — has done little to diminish her reign as Mandopop Queen. A*Mei!!!
We celebrated Y.E.S. 93.3FM’s 23rd anniversary last weekend. Joi Chua, Aaron Yan, and the cast from 96 Degrees Café joined more than 200 listeners in an afternoon of fun, food and drinks at Switch. It would have been a great day if I hadn’t damaged the cake stand on loan from Twelve Cupcakes. Clumsy Cruz strikes again! Argh.
I admit that I haven’t been taking good care of myself lately. Or should I say that life’s been really good? Haha. Well, I put on (more) weight — I did an A*Mei! — which is why I had to turn down a number of things. For instance, I was approached to do a role in an upcoming drama serial. The production team claimed that they wrote the (supporting) role with me in mind! Now, that’s very nice of them, but until I shed some kilos, I’m not going on television. And the 933 crew is really understanding. “Ok, we’re doing a group photo now. You stand behind us. We’ll block your body!” Hahahaha.
