5:51am musings

So today is the 22nd of September. So fast, man! It's gonna be Short+Sweet Musical next week!

Tomorrow, I mean today, we're gonna be having our very last rehearsal for Dim Sum Masala. I'm so excited for it to be staged! It's gonna be so kool! Also I can't wait to (not) see all the other musicals. Harumph. They're so strict this year that we can't even watch the musicals that are going on and have to sit in the dressing rooms. 

But I'm not gonna let that deter me! It's gonna be amazing! Some of the people who were involved in Stand Up Comedy and Song are also gonna be involved in Musical. Sooo yeah.

On other aspects of my life:

1. Exams are over. I'm temporarily free. That is, till exam results come, thus determining whether I'll be permanently free of the shackles that are the UTAR system.

2. Jordan is having PMR in two weeks, nay, TEN DAYS. Kill me la.

3. Well that's pretty much it. My life aint that eventful.

4. Oh yeah wait I need to introduce someone who has come back into my life after moving to Ipoh for the longest time!

Friend of 15 years, Kesha!

KESHA! She's now back at Bukit Antarabangsa and we have all the time in the world to meet up and chat. Before this I really thought we'd have to settle for the meager hours she could spare whenever she came down from Ipoh to visit relatives. I'm really glad that she's back in my life! :) 


Congratulations Jordi!

Tonight was the end of Short+Sweet Stand Up Comedy and Song 2013. Another year has gone by and I have met more amazing people. One of the best things I love about taking part in Short+Sweet is the chance to meet people and work with them. But this year the best thing I love about Short+Sweet is that...


I'm so proud of Jordi because let me tell you, he's always been so hard on himself. I remember the countless nights talking to him on the phone and on Skype, encouraging him and sometimes consoling him. Haha. I remember working on his sets for the shows he was gonna have the next day and how he'd be freaking out when I tell him what I thought. I remember going to his shows and watching him perform and see him slowly get better and more confident. :)

Stand up comedy has always been Jordi's thing and this year he's really proved himself. Since the opening night of Short+Sweet Stand Up Comedy people kept telling me how confident they thought Jordi was this year and how good he has become. :) So it was no surprise that Jordi won this year and while it's 5.30am and I'm sounding very incoherent and repetitive, I'm just so happy for Jordi that I decided to blog about it.

Ohhh on our third night, Jordi was very well received by the crowd. He was thronged by girls who wanted to have their picture taken with the stand up comedian who was by no means the funniest that night and apparently the most charming. ;)

Okay so I haven't blogged in more than a year. Trust me I have been trying but I've been feeling very bleh about my writing. So I'm just gonna let it be and try to continue and hope that it gets better. :P

Anyways! So that's that for Stand Up Comedy 2013! On to Musical! :)
