my saturday

Previously, I'd blogged about Aidan having a teeny-weeny role in a locally-made movie in one of my earlier entry..Well, they'd started shooting some scenes yesterday..it was mainly for the trailer and thankfully, this was the 'easy' one - which was the playground scene. When we reached there (a playground at Holland V area), they were in the midst of filming another scene, that of Aidan's screen parents. By the way, Aidan's name in the movie is Ethan which is good since the two names sounded quite similar.

Aidan's screen daddy (the one with the laptop) being filmed..:P

One of the production crew ensuring Aidan's makeup was intact :P

What was required from Aidan for the scene was simple. He just had to do what he always does at a playground..go up and down the slide repeatedly..! Aidan just couldn't wait to do his scene. He kept asking me impatiently, "Is it 'action' yet??" And I told him wait for Uncle Mark to say so..and he'll ask Mark "Can I 'action' yet?" So the minute he called 'action', Aidan was happy like a bird. The shoot itself took probably at most 10 minutes..! It was wrap after he did it for the 4th time! The boy looks as if he'd enjoyed himself and I think he liked being the centre of attention.

Us with Hanni (who did the casting), Mark, the director and his son, Noel!
slumbermydarlin, Hanni told me she knew abt my blog thru yours (understand she's a pal for yours).
We made our way down to One Fullerton yesterday to catch the opening of the Singapore Fireworks Festival which was graced by our President Nathan. Yeah, my fireworks pics didn't do justice to what was on display that night by Team Italy..There are other fab fireworks pics on the internet (for eg. here and here).

You see the wand that Aidan is holding? There was this lady going ard selling it..and her method? She was shoving it right into the hands of the kids and by the time the parents realised what was happening, their children were already waving the wands happily and they had no choice but to fork out 3 bucks! That happened to us too! It was crowded and hot, and we didn't want to risk a tantrum. I bet she sold all her wands that night! Grrrrr!!

woah... this kind of selling can't even be classified as pressure selling, that lady is good man.... LOL...

btw, u used the phrase "happy like bird". actually i used it fairly often, then yesterday, i used it again and my fren asked me "how you know bird is happy"? muhahaha......

i was there at one fullerton too and it was sooo packed!!!
Aug. 6th, 2006 02:57 pm (UTC)
yeah! we had dinner at boat quay because all the restaurants at one fullerton were fully booked and the walk from bq to one fullerton was crazy. tons of pple..didn't helped that a section at one fullerton was cordoned off for a mini-function for the president.

you planning to attend the rest of the fireworks display?
Aug. 6th, 2006 03:33 pm (UTC)
ya, those pple actually booked the restaurants few wks ago. almost didnt get a table at bakerzin, ended up 6 of us sqeezed in a tiny table. lol.

yup. thinking of watching the fri & sat nights, since tues one shld be same as wed i think.
Aug. 6th, 2006 04:12 pm (UTC)
then better book now!

i booked for palm beach for tues night already!!
Aug. 7th, 2006 01:29 am (UTC)
wah, must book one ah?
would the pple standing around block your view?
Is Fullerton One the best place to watch? Very scared of the crowd leh :p
Aug. 7th, 2006 01:52 am (UTC)
for the restaurants yes...we wanted black angus initially because it's further away from the merlion but that was fully booked already. so bopien, and since my mil/dil/bil/sil are coming too, might as well book a chinese restaurant.
I think Fullerton One is one of the best place to view the fireworks. I saw some pple at Boat Quay waiting for it too. Am sure there are other places like Marina where you can get a pretty good view too.

hahah.. i wanted to leave a comment only visible to you but i don't know how.
Aug. 7th, 2006 01:50 am (UTC)
you can quickly leave a comment and delete (i'll get it in my email) or you can always email me direct (angeliatay@gmail.com) *grin*
Aug. 7th, 2006 09:34 am (UTC)
wah liao...that lady who sold the wands...ridiculous!!! i would rather risk a tantrum and bribe the kids with something better than to give in to that!!
Aug. 8th, 2006 04:06 am (UTC)
i wanted to but the fireworks was gonna start in any minute and our friends were waiting for us..so we left it at that.

today we'll make sure we stay far away from her..
