Guess I should bring him for a haircut real soon :P

My li' boy turned 16 months old yesterday :)

Met up with my ex-colleagues yesterday for lunch..The last time they saw Aidan was about 8 months ago..So they all did the polite thing and said that he's so cute and sweet and gushed about his long eyelashes and pretty eyes :) And oh, and they said that he's looking more like me :) Gimz helped me to feed Aidan while I tucked into my food and he was having such a fun [easy] time doing so that he declared "I want a kid!!!" :D...

It was good catching up with them.. Gimz who's in charge of local programming for Ch5 asked me who I thought would make a good judge for Singapore Idol.. I was like err err..sheesh! Haven't actually thought of this but I blurted out Dick Lee (gotta have someone who knows music on the panel!). auntyadele, I also said that I thought Joe Augustine will make a good judge too coz of the reasons I wrote in ur lj :P (Oh and I have to say, what a waste that Joe couldn't do Body Beautiful..it would have been fun to see his transformation).. And I was like..please please, prove the rumours wrong and don't cast Gurmit as the compere! I mean..it makes more sense to have a radio dj as the host right? And 'dj-host' can like Ryan Seacreast, have a segment to discuss the show on radio the day after..I honestly won't mind someone like Daniel Ong getting the part (erm definitely not Glenn Ong though). Oh, and Ching Yee asked me who could be a 'Paula'..Gosh..I was stumped again..Her definition of a 'Paula' i think should be someone who can sing and had a few hits and is somewhat of buffer to a meano judge..Can't think of any female singer who's good enough to be a judge actually..First person that came to my mind was Sun Yan Tze but hmm..not sure whether she'll like to be in that position..she seems so..bochap in a way. Kit Chan maybe?

Heh..I got my answer to why it's Singapore Idol and not Singaporean Idol.. Well, firstly, they said Singapore Idol sounds nicer than Singaporean Idol. Oh well, I guess its true that latter is more awkward sounding. And more importantly, if it's Singapore Idol, that means non-Singaporean can also take part..Not sure thought whether they meant PRs are eligible or that non-Singaporeans staying in Singapore can do so too..

Hmm.. seriously, who else would make a good compere and judge for Singapore Idol?

Oh..and the NBC hit reality show in US The Apprentice is finally gonna be on Ch5 next month~~

That's Gimz & Joy on the left and Ching Yee next to me..

Joy & Gimz pretending to be a couple hehe..

Misc pics & video
Aidan wore Ryan's cap and Ryan wore Aidan's cowboy hat :)

Darn..i guess shutterfly doesnt allowing hotlinking anymore ..bleah.Weird thing is that I can actually view the pics on my journal most of the time.. Gotta migrate my pics to my own hostsite I guess..*sigh* So lecheh.. My older entries will be without pics then..

Here's a Video of Aidan eating yoghurt on his own..
I ♥ hearing the mmmmm sound he makes whenever he's enjoying his food :)


Went for an interview for a PR and Marketing job a few days back... The lady who interviewed me said she would most likely arrange a second interview with the VP coz she thought I had the right qualifications for the job BUT..when she realised that I had a young kid [after she perused through the written info interviewees have to fill up], she queried whether I'll be fine with the long hours that come with the job. She warned me that most of the time, the marketing team will work till abt 9/10pm daily and the earliest would be about 8pm.

I hmmed..and hawwed..and replied that if I was expected to stay back almost everyday, that would definitely be an issue because I do want to be home in time to see my child before he goes to sleep. I know I shouldn't give such a honest reply but given the conditions (plus that the company is located in Jurong and that it's a 5 1/2 day week job [hmm am I too fussy??]), I'm probably not that keen..Hmm..somehow, after that reply, I doubt I'll get a callback..Oh well...

Anyway, will still be continuing my search. So far, I am getting called for interviews but not much success in clinching the job..Anyone with kang tau, send them my way :)

hahaha looks like a babe from behind ;x

...and I say Glenn ong can replace Simon =D
Apr. 24th, 2004 12:24 am (UTC)
I agree Glenn can make a good critic coz he can be so mean and honest BUT i was tryin not to suggest too many djs..
The problem is..all the people that came to my mind are djs! Are they any other 'celebs' who arent from radio but prob from the music industry that are credible judges?

what kind of job are you looking for? and what level? meanz executive, managerial or director levels. Gotta give me an idea so I can help you look out.
Apr. 24th, 2004 12:33 am (UTC)
Probably in marketing..managerial level. I have about 4 years plus experience as a manager..

I can pass u my resume if that helps :) Thanks a bundle!

I can see the photos except the last 2, the 1st photo's really amusing :) but hey its cool, then those aunties can really wonder if aidan's a boy or a girl! lmao

Spore is too small to have a good enough Spore idol, just look at our beauty peagants and all those Asia bagus shows eons ago... bleahz! not enough talent, looks, and space for all that ego!
Apr. 24th, 2004 01:23 am (UTC)
darn..shutterfly is really down then *sigh* probably have to move all my pics from there to my own hostsite *arghh*

heh..so he looks like a girl from behind but not when u c his face hor hehe *evil*

I think if singapore is opening the competition to others in Singapore who arent singaporean, it would be opening the field much more..I dun think it will be as bad as the pageants becuz i think there are q a lot of pple out there who do have dreams to be singers and make it in the music/entertainment business.
maybe u can try - sansation - Apr. 24th, 2004 09:55 am (UTC) - Expand

looks like a baby girl from the back!! haha

he's really growing up so quick, I'm growing older as well. lol
Apr. 24th, 2004 01:24 am (UTC)
so not like baby girl from front ah *grin*
heh..yeah lor..the bigger he gets, the more wrinkles i get too *sob*
Apr. 24th, 2004 01:05 am (UTC)
Wah Aidan really need to have his hair cut. He looks like a girl in the 2nd pix!

Kit Chan sounds great to be SG's Paula. I think she will be less politically correct than Paula though. Have they decided on the host? Gurmit will be boring! Glenn Ong will be better hosting some lion dance competition.

5 day job is the way! I will keep a look out for you too~
Apr. 24th, 2004 01:26 am (UTC)
really ah? I thought he still look like a samseng boy with his hair tied :D..

I agree..I think Kit will be less effusive with the praises and probably more curt..I didn't ask whether they chose the host yet..and Gimz prob wun tell me even if they had :)

yeah..am hoping for a 5 day job..hope im not bein idealistic actually..

Aidan is eating from the spoon very well! Julia is just dropping food everywhere!

Hey, you're in PR/Mkg too? Good luck on your job search! I know it's not gonna be easy working those long hours again when there's a little one occupying your thoughts most of the time. I am facing this dilemma too...
Apr. 24th, 2004 03:14 am (UTC)
actually AIdan's still q bad with the spoon. If u watch the video closely, u'll realise that he always turn the spoon the other way so if he's eating something 'non-sticky', the item would have fallen out of the spoon :D..

Are u working now btw? Yeah..i know its gonna be tough to balance working hours n family life esp in the mkg/pr line..oh well, just gotta wait and see then..

Eh, I thought the rumours were that Fann Wong, Najip Ali and Dick Lee were the judges? Wrong ah? Fann Wong would have been a damn farnee "tor hwee" choice!

Jurong would have been in my neck of the woods huh? Can meet for makan.... Good luck with the job hunt. If I hear of anything will pass your way too.
Apr. 24th, 2004 03:12 am (UTC)
those u mentioned were on the shortlist of judges ..but i think they still need to 'audition' them..I know there were more pple they were lookin at too. Gimz gave a smile when i said Dick Lee..so hehe..who knows :)

Oh man, Fann is definitely a hor hwee choice man.although she'll a good 'Paula' :P.. The critics would have a field day if that's true!
Apr. 24th, 2004 03:23 am (UTC)
tanya chua?
that gal got attitude.....

fann wong can't do sh*t other than sit and look purtee.
Apr. 24th, 2004 03:26 am (UTC)
That's what Paula Abdul does leh hehehe..Sit n look might purtee and making eyes at Simon..

I don't think they are looking for all judges to be bitchy and caustic.. Gotta have a fair mix and have someone be nice to the contestants. Tanya hmm..i think she's too 'alternative' though and not 'celeb' enuff..I think she's one heck of a singer and writer though..

i am having problem with shutterfly too...looks like another host is bye bye soon....i can see some of the pixs in this post, except for 2....i now host my photos in photobucket.com recommended by June, quite good...
Apr. 24th, 2004 06:32 am (UTC)
yeah..i hosted some of my pics on photobucket too but i preferred shutterfly coz of their various options like captioning..i think i'll just transfer most of my pics to my own hostsite instead. But very leh-cheh..all that migrating...

Apr. 24th, 2004 04:38 am (UTC)
haha ... when I saw your 1st pix (back view) I thot it's Tiffany ;P Erm ... how u managed that? Coz' I doubt i'll be able to tie Ryan's hair ~ he'll probly struggle and scream till the house come down!
so shutterfly's really down? then I don't bother to post for the time being ..
Female judge ... how abt Jacintha A or Jessica Soo?
Apr. 24th, 2004 06:55 am (UTC)
heh as usual, i 'attacked' him when he was watching tv..that's when he's the most vulnerable hehe..

well, instead of shutterfly, u can post in photobucket.com although u would have to resize ur pics first..

Jessica Soo..not 'known' that well as a singer. Jacintha hee..i doubt she'll wanna sit next to Dick lee..
Apr. 24th, 2004 05:04 am (UTC)
