Singapore Thai Festival 2011!

Thursday, June 30, 2011

From the 23rd to 27th of June I went down...

Photobucket

...for my first emcee-ing gig in Singapore!
Got to host the Royal Thai Embassy's Thai Festival 2011!

Photobucket


Had the opportunity to officiate the event alongside Mr.Jitti Suwannik, the Chance d'affairs of the Royal Thai Embassy Singapore.

Explaining a new eco friendly Mulberry 3D paint, made from plant fibres and made in Thailand!

And get some crowd interaction time with Singaporean masses :)

Photobucket


But mostly, I was hosting their daily performances that was flown in to bring Thailand right to Singapore!

Photobucket


Here, the dancers are performing the Ton Warachet dance, a display of 'enduring uniformity of step' ;)
Yes, I memorized my script well.

Photobucket


And here, the male dancer is doing a slow and dramatic 'Angel Dance.'

I'm currently in love with all the sharp GOLD ornaments they wear with their cultural garb.
Dream of doing a shoot in it someday *fingers crossed*

Photobucket


Also, enjoyed running their daily cultural inspired runways showcasing Thai textiles.
All clothes were brought in from a fashion house in Chiang Mai and prices were pretty crazy due to the fabric.


Photobucket


Aforementioned Thai runway models and Ms. Buniga Chamsai, helping me host the Grand Lucky Draw! 
Someone won a 3 night stay at Rembrant Hotel Bangkok! #iwannakeepformyself

Photobucket


So as you can see, I was mostly talking non stop.
They even prepared an array of loaded mikes for me just in case! ;p

Photobucket


And it was pretty cool getting familiar with the sound system and how it works since I spent so many hours there.
Everyday I was on standby at Orchard from 11.30am and stayed till 8pm.

BUT STILL, I MANAGED TO SQUEEZE IN 2 PHOTOSHOOTS! :)



Photobucket


Post work, I hit Seletar Reservoir to get some midnight shots!

Photobucket


I know it looks bright, but we were in pitch darkness save street lamps.
That's Razin Razor and assistant of the day Firdaus, setting up while I ate my dinner; A banana.
I'm Spoilt, I know :)

Photobucket


Thanks to Razin Razor's magnificent experimentative lighting, we got this sort of effects! :)
Mad lovin' but it still wasn't enough, so we hit his studio at Arab Street on my last night there..

Photobucket

..for a Brie version of a Bridal Shoot!

Photobucket

I don't know what happy brides are supposed to look like, obviously :)

Photobucket

Thanks for working around my crazy schedule Razin :)
Check his work out here at his 13,000 fans and counting Razor I Razin Photography FB Page

And also, managed to squeeze in....

Photobucket


...hunting for a proper modelling portfolio folder! 

I know, been modelling since 17 and never needed 1in KL since everyone knows everyone.
But I don't know anyone in Singapore so... :)


MRT'd all the way to City Link during my lunch break to visit Prints file shop not knowing they had one on the 4th floor of Ion :(

Photobucket


Did all that so I could use another break to hit up Upfront Models agency and cast to see if they are willing to give a Chinese, American born Malaysian based Emcee/Model consideration.

Photobucket


But even if I don't get it, at least I had the initiative to go all out of my way to try :)
I can live with that.

But still, the best part of my time away from what I love in KL...

Photobucket

..is that what I love came to me :)
10 hour coach ride just to watch me work for a day!

Will be uploading more event pics to my FB Modelling Page so LIKE it to be updated!

HAPPY FALLING FURTHER AWAY FROM THE TREE, PILLOWTALKERS!
