up, up & away!


Up and down. A staircase somewhere in KL. Looked good. Snapped a shot. Here it is.

Okay folks, I've left it quite late to announce it but here it is. In 2 days, I'm off to Johor Bahru to spend a couple of days with a local charity, Care United. I'm there to help raise funds for their children/old folks programmes. Then when I'm done, I head straight down to Singapore where I begin rehearsals for a musical. I'm there for 2 months. The show Superhero Diaries, goes on at the end of August and will be in the Singapore Indoor Stadium. This show will see 2 of my childhood dreams come true. First, I get to share the stage with one-time popstar Debbie Gibson. I loved her songs when I was a wee tween. She plays a villain and I play one of the heroes that has to defeat her. Second, I get to perform in a stadium in front of thousands. Thousands!

But here is my promise to you. I won't disappear completely. I will take as many shots of KL as I can, save them in my vault and post at least once a week, with updates to my life in the island nation.

See you soon!

Congratulations on your helping with Care United to make a difference in the lives of others -- we need more people like you in this world! How cool that you get share the stage with Debbie Gibson! I loved her songs when she was a big hit when I was in Jr. High School. It's fitting that she fits into a part of your dream, as I remember that one of her hit singles was "Only in My Dreams". :-) I think I still have her tape! I admire you for being able to perform in front of thousands -- I myself am sort of stage-frightish, but have no problem making a clown out of myself.

Oh yes, and the photo -- now that's what I call effortless exercise; you get it even when you're not trying to, just by climbing the stairs!
