I got to reflecting… the past few days saw me being a little down, probably because of PMS and stress, but waking up this morning I decided to choose my attitude and everything has been sweeeeeeeeeeet! At the end of it all, it’s all about your outlook in life because not everything will go your way. Take for instance, I was really looking forward to brunch with a friend in town today but Z texted in the morning that she was a bit caught up with work so had to reschedule. Not a biggie and what I honestly appreciated, was that Z at least had the initiative to inform me a good 1 hour in advance!
Okay, so that’s pretty minor. But there’s much bigger issues too. Some technical bits for next Saturday weren’t going according to plan and seriously at a time like this, it was bugging me because I wish I could just focus on my role as a professional performer, than have to worry over issues that aren’t supposed to be my concern. However, this is reality and as a professional commercial entertainer, there’s simply stuff you have to personally oversee. But God works in mysterious ways truly… when one door closes, another opens. Things always happen for a reason, I understand that now.
My guardian angels are working on overtime because we had a door close on us abruptly today, but magically – by pure impossible coincidence, a grander one magically opened up from out of nowhere when we truly didn’t expect it to, so that was honestly really cool. Figuratively speaking of course. I’ll elaborate on these ‘doors’ after my Mega Escape on 5 July maybe. Gosh. I’m really SO excited!!!!
Speaking of my Mega Escape: The Impalement Cage, do check it out on STB’s Uniquely Singapore Event Calender webpage! Singapore Tourism Board has endorsed my ‘live’ event at Clarke Quay so do swing by the fountain area at 9pm to check out this one time feat, it’s a spectacular that will NOT be repeated! You should try to come early too since admission is free. Trust me, you’ll want to pick a nice spot.
Oh yes. TIMEOUT Singapore picked up the story and ran an exclusive interview on me in their July issue, which is just out today so you can grab a copy of the popular magazine from news stands and convenient stores nationwide *grin* My entire interview with them is available online so you can check it out later. Meanwhile, here’s a sneak peek of it…
Yep, besides the print interview in the magazine (with more Q&A in the online version of their July issue), TimeOut Singapore also listed us under their ‘Critics Choice’ section above, which was really awesome. We’re the only magic event on it and they placed a nice little eye-catching icon of a magic wand and an old-school top hat just before our plug. It expands to a full listing description for my performance of course.
I so completely LOVE what the witty magazine wrote aboout me… Singapore’s only professional female magician takes the idea of stillettos to a whole new level. Damn right!!! Perhaps we should’ve named it THE STILLETTO CAGE instead of THE IMPALEMENT CAGE! Hahaha…
Anyways, HARRIS the bookshop is having a 25% sale on graphic novels so I practically went loco after work today at Great World City. I lugged back a whole lot of stuff, it’s a true wonder that the bags didn’t rip! It truly is such a steal and if you’re a big fan like me, it’s a fabulous time to treat yourself to something nice after working so darn hard. I can’t wait to sink my jaws into my latest babies I’m $300+ poorer but a million times happier!
Since training went well today, I decided to catch a movie. WANTED is really good and Angelina Jolie looks so mega sexy with all her tattoos, and her character plays a kick-ass assassin (my dream job!). Which brings the question… are tattoos addictive? I mean, I don’t think most people would stop at one and just one. J C’s been reminding me to go back to my inker soon for my touch-ups but I’ve just been so darn busy!!! Soon, soon. Just for touch-ups and not anything new. Heh.
Ta for now, more later!!!!
