So our friends at Alive Not Dead asked me to try out this new online contest to win two free tickets to the UK courtesy of Virgin Atlantic.
So I headed over to the site and played. I got 11 milesI know that that only landed me in 54th place but I think that's not too bad for someone who's only been to the UK like 3 times!:-)
Those 3 times I did go I had a blast and would love to have an excuse to go...Read more
So yesterday we finally did the live Oscar show on Star Movies. I say finally because this was one month in the making and yesterday it finally happened. Thank you to everyone who made it happen, and let me tell you it took an entire village to make it happen. It was nerve wracking and just downright scary but we managed to do it without any catastrophic ...Read more
As I'm sure some of you have noticed, I haven't blogged in almost a year. So what better way to jump back into the blog-o-sphere then with the very happy announcement that Daniel and I finally did it. We are now officially Mr. and Mrs. Wu. We took the plunge near my house in South Africa. It was a mystical, rustic, pure, beautiful ceremony that blew the socks off all of our guests. Unfortunately pictures cannot truly make one feel the energy that was swirling around us in the forest. I couldn't have even...Read more
So I finally did it. I took my hosting skills public. Ya see, usually I do it in front of a camera and one camera dude, not in front of a large, oh so very large, crowd. So this was my first forray into true professional public speaking. It's kind of ironic that this is the type of work I have chosen to pursue because as a child and teenager I was painfully shy. I had a phobia of doing speeches in class or of singing in the class play. But all these years later I th...Read more
Yes, congratulations are in order because we are new proud parents of.....(hehehe not what you're thinking hehehe)... Renee, the coolest mongrel ever! We adopted her from the Hong Kong Dog Rescue and I am completely smitten. She's an elegant old lady who is just the biggest cuddle monkey on the face of this earth. I connected with her the moment I encountered her, and let me tell ya that that actually means a lot because there were about a hundred dogs jumping all over me, trying to get some human lov...Read more
Just got back from a little jaunt in Hokkaido, Japan. As usual it did not disappoint. I've been to quite a few places for skiing, and there is something about the snow in Hokkaido that is different. It's like cotton. It's as soft as the peach fuzz on a baby angel's ass. No, seriously, it's like skiing on a cloud. Unfortunately I am not the most talented or seasoned skiier so I'm not very graceful on the slopes, but I get the job done without injuring myself or anyone around me :-). The thin...Read more
I have been a bit off the radar lately and I do apologize for that. Perhaps I just find most of what I do not really blog worthy so in actuality I am sparing you all from my boring dribble. But, finally, I did something of interest in the recent weeks. I was sent by Channel V to cover the Asia World Premiere of Valkyrie in Seoul Korea. It was a pretty strange and fun experience for me. Strange because it was the first time I had worked that side of the barrier at a red carpet, and let me tell ya, it was like a mosh pit. Before the cr...Read more
Had a really fun day the other day shooting for Scene and Heard on Channel V! We were shooting at the Asian Gaming Show which showcases new up and coming video games, consoles, and toys galore. All my favorite things! Yes, I'm a gamer, and I'm unashamed . I spend countless hours playing World of Warcraft, some may even call me an addict. I've been playing video games since the Atari, so its been a long standing love affair. So, I completely understood all these kid...Read more
I have been a very very bad blogger and for that I apologize. Life just got a little busy . Yes, it has been a very busy couple of months that was truly wearing me out. And just when I thought that I couldn't go on at the pace I was going, the economic crisis hit. I guess this is really a forced slow down for me because if there was work happening my greedy self would not be able to say no to it. It's the Jewish side in me . But now I have no choice and so I can fin...Read more
Aaaahhhh.... I can finally start breathing some sighs of relief. I am embarking on a new journey. A journey that will provide me not only a bit of job stability but also some much needed occupational stimulation. I now have a desk. How cool is that? My own desk... Never thought that would happen . It needs some decorating but its ALL MINE!
