backstage pt.7


One would think that after the show is done, everyone is pooped and ready to collaspe. On the contrary, adrenaline levels are high and the backstage antics continue. This is Kim Siong, one of the emsemble cast. He and a few others smudged their make-up and ran around the dressing room singing Whitney and Mariah songs. As I was removing my make-up, Kim Siong comes to me and asks me to take his picture. How could I resist?

Thanks for popping by guys :)

I'm sure Kim Siong would be pleased with the lovely comments about him.

Can someone shed some light on Anonymous's comment above? What is the ref. to 555544??

Yes ! So glad you're adding a couple more, it feels like a little extra Xmas time. This particular portrait is absolutely wonderful. I wish I could do this.

Edwin I googled the number 555544 and I found a website called colour lovers where colour ref 555544 is called 'the mind reader' - have no idea whether this has any relevance but I'd like to think it does, because in this picture you read Kim Siong's mind beautifully. What do you think of that?
