Her Other PASSIONS in this short, miserable (if she chose to) life....

  • Traveling, sleeping, eating.....also a constant need to attend "CONSUMER THERAPY sessions (shopping)" religiously!!! ABSOLUTELY lurve music, clubbing, movies...hanging out with friends, TV....well, in no particular order... =P

    Devoted her life to her ART, she works as a TV Trailer Producer! Producing TV trailers/promos, An extremely interesting job if one chose to love the performing arts, creative work, having no life, no sleep, not many friends left & destined to be poor...

    Practically spent her childhood with a box (the goggle box)! She lurve her TV Friends, Alias, ED, Charmed (with shannen doherty) and the man, Dave...Late Show with David Letterman, Simpsons...What's TV life without the movies too, right? She loves: Amelie, He loves me, he loves me not!, Red Dragon, Lock Stock & two Smoking Barrels, Talented Mr Ripley, Saving Private Ryan, ID4, Life is Beautiful & White (Blanc, Trois Couleurs) in no particular order too.

    Music is her other biggest passion if you still haven't got it, love Classical, Rock, Pop, House, Alternative & also Jazz...anything but ABSOLUTELY despised ELEVATOR MUSIC or TONE DEAF HUMAN BEINGS WHO love singing! She was 'forced' by a Tyrant to study the piano when she was young, was the most horrific time, hee! hee! (Tyrant = her mama! keep quiet or I'll kill YOU! =P ) Struggled to complete it!

    Her secondary instrument is clarinet, & luckily her favorite instrument in the woodwind family. Randomly picked to play the clarinet by her band conductor Mr Ng Hung Meng! Played like crap in the band until her first break thru with clarinet tutor Mr Chua Tiong Hong. Chosen to participate in the NCO Band Major Camp in 1985 & National Music Camp for schools in 1986. After that, A member of the SYO (Singapore Youth Orchestra) for 7 years & studied with her IDOL & MENTOR, Vincent Goh, cool & suave member of the SSO. Previously also performed with the NTSB (which is known as SWS, Singapore Wind Symphony now!) for a very short time.

    Performing with the SYO was the most amazing time of her life, a mixture of satisfaction & "trauma", ha! ha! Is that what most young musicians go through? Made fabulous friends in the SYO & still very close (her life support). She also form a marvelous woodwind quintet called the Appassionato Quintet! Traveled to Kumamoto, Japan with the SYO in 30 July 1993, for the Kumamoto International Youth Music Festival! In 1994 & 1996 respectively, Chosen to represent Singapore in the 1st Asean Youth Symphonic Band Workshop held in Singapore & the 2nd held in Bangkok, Thailand. It was the most memorable time, too many cute, talented men, too little time! =P
