This is a very delayed post. However, I need to thank each and everyone who made this possible and I am very grateful to those who gave me that extra push to where I am today. I participated in 2 back-to-back pageants over a period of 5 months – Miss Singapore International, followed by Miss Singapore World. I’ll blog about Miss Singapore World on a later date. This post is dedicated to you guys who made a difference in my journey for Miss Singapore International 2011 :)
I believe that to be able to represent Miss Singapore International, each and every contestant must have compassion and that encompasses having a heart of gold coupled with a burning desire to serve society. The Queen will serve as Goodwill Ambassadors of Beauty showing tenderness, benevolence, friendship, understanding, beauty and intelligence coupled with the ability to take action and have great international sensibility. The theme of Miss Singapore International is “Beauty with a Purpose”. Do you have what it takes to be crowned? I’m very proud of my dearest friend, Stella, Miss Singapore International 2011, who recently got back from China representing Singapore. As for me? I’m really honored to be crowned Miss Singapore International 2011 2nd Runner-up and the prestigious Miss Body Beautiful title.
The finals of Miss Singapore International 2011, organized by Singapore Women’s Association, was held on 2nd July 2011 (Saturday) at Raffles Town Club. I was so excited for this day that I couldn’t sleep the night before! Also, there’s a special person I would like to thank, Genecia Luo, Miss Singapore International 2006, who took me under her wing. Not only was she running a high fever that night, she came by Raffles Town Club at 3am in the morning to see me practice. Most importantly, she believed in me and affirmed my mindset which helped to unleash my innate potential and charisma, boosting my stage presence.
I have always wanted to be a Beauty Queen, for just one reason – To be able to use my status as a platform to influence and affect the masses for my cause, representing Singapore, being a role model. There are many people in this world each with different lives to lead, however many of them do not have the luck to live one full of joy and with the best of health. I find that there is a place for them in my heart and I feel that I can do more to make a positive impact on their lives. Winning isn’t everything, the effort to win is. I know in your hearts, I am already a winner that night and I believe it’s 99% hard work and 1% luck. Thank you everyone for believing in me and supporting me throughout this journey. You know who you are :)
Winning this title opened many doors for me. Besides being recognized when I’m out, I get called up for interviews and special guest appearances on various media platforms ranging from online journalism to newspapers to magazines to television to radio. One of the most memorable appearances was on 早安您好! Good Morning, Singapore! where I had the chance to be on the NEWS to share my fitness regime and diet plan with the audience as a Beauty Queen and Miss Body Beautiful – a title which I’ve worked very hard for. This appearance was made possible by Genecia who was kindly introduced to me by Keith Tan from Aileron Wellness. Keith was the brains behind my body. He whipped me up in shape with a carefully thought fitness regime within a short 5 week frame.
Thank you each and everyone of you, who supported me in a way or another, physically or emotionally. It really warms my heart to see the people I love standing by me, screaming for me. *kisses* After 2 months of bonding, the pageant has come to an end. I miss you girls. Badly. And I definitely miss the times we helped to spam glitter on each other. This journey I embarked on has taught me many new things. We also learned to share and grow together as a team not an individual. Offering a helping hand through times of need, being there for each other and cheering on for one and another. Friendship with the girls is something I really treasure out of this pageant. I love you girls! Meet up soon :)
Lots of Love

In the segment《城事大家说》, we discussed about health, diet and nutrition of a beauty queen. I’ve uploaded it on YouTube just for you guys! Waking at up 4.30am to prepare to go on set is… quite good ;) Hope there will be more opportunities like this!
The New Paper, Friday September 9 2011
One of my favorite segments – I worked hard for that body and I’m sure I did myself and my trainers proud :)
Miss Singapore World 2011 Coronation Night, Thursday September 8 2011
I’ll be appearing on Good Morning, Singapore! 《早安您好》on Channel 8, Friday 30th September 2011 (TOMORROW) at about 730am. Don’t forget our date!
How much work goes into shooting a McDonald’s commercial? A LOT. Many people don’t realize what goes on behind the scenes to create a great video or in this case, a commercial – the investment of time, people and gear. This 30-second television commercial was filmed at various locations around Singapore for almost an entire day! Talk about professionalism, dedication and hard work from both production crew and actors under such weather conditions.
Traffic police were hired to facilitate the movement of the traffic at situations like this and ongoing cars need to stop specially for me! It’s definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity in Singapore where impatient people like to honk at others for god-knows-what-reason.
The actors took instructions from the director and went with the flow. We couldn’t see the different takes during the filming process but it was cool because it actually turned out pretty great. My role was quite simple – to look hot and distract the guys in the car. It might seem really easy to many others but… try looking ‘hot’ under the hot weather and catwalk down the slope in 5-inch heels! Filming at this location took about 3 hours starting from about 12 noon and it’s a blessing to have very little makeup on.
The guys really took great care of me and it’s a pleasure working with all of them. In case you are wondering what we had for lunch that day… It’s not McDonald’s haha Enjoy my very first television commercial! It’s feeding time bros – Official McDonald’s Big N’ Tasty and Cheese Shaker Fries commercial ;)

Chérie Wellness Volume 2
Never in my wildest dreams I thought would be possible to be crowned Miss Singapore International 2011 2nd Runner-Up and also, clinch the prestigious subsidiary title every woman dreamed of, Miss Body Beautiful.
After several weeks of training and fervent preparations at Aileron Wellness, a members-exclusive gym, I was well-prepared and in tip-top condition to kickstart Miss Singapore International 2011 held on 2nd of July 2011.
As mentioned in my previous Chérie Wellness series, I have been working out diligently on the Power Plate®. Power Plate® uses breakthrough technology in training and conditioning, ideal for muscle toning and muscle activation. Due to my knee and ankle problems, I’m advised to avoid dynamic movements so as not to aggravate my injuries. Incorporating isometric exercises on the Power Plate® machine helped to strengthen and tone up my muscles around the knee for better support and with higher muscle activation, I achieved longer and leaner muscles.

Acceleration training on the Power Plate® machine makes the body feel as though it weighs more every time acceleration forces increase, making the workout more efficient and effective. Don’t be fooled by the tiny movements done on the Power Plate®, you will definitely feel the burn during the workout. My friends, Ben, Caren and Chun Wee joined me once at the gym to try out the Power Plate® machine.
Here’s what they said,
“I found that 45 sec longer than a lifetime.”
“The super-acceleration from the machine set at high intensity level made a simple Squat exercise incrementally tough.”
“My thighs were aching after one set, whilst normally I can go through a couple of sets without issue.”
With my full commitment on working out at least 3 times a week at Aileron Wellness, I managed to tone up, achieving a lean bod and inches off my body in less than 6 weeks.
Like what Owner of Aileron Wellness and Master Trainer, Keith Tan said, “The epitome of health and fitness lies in having a healthy lifestyle and making exercises a way of life. It is not an option.” I aim for healthy not skinny. Working out has really improved my confidence level and boosted my self-esteem especially on stage. I’m really satisfied with my transformation and my fitness experience at Aileron Wellness where I’m exposed to different cutting edge fitness tools. I would strongly recommend this members-exclusive gym to those who desire a beautiful body at any age in achieving that enviable physique. Thank you Aileron Wellness and your wonderful team of trainers, Keith, Eddy and Andrew, for making my dream come true, taking flight in fitness and achieving that beautiful body.
I can’t thank you enough, i’Lovmor – The wonderful team of people behind this one-stop bridal studio – Karen, Reanne and Kassandra. Thank you for your wonderful service, unending flexibility and support throughout this competition. It is my pleasure having made lovely friends like you ladies ♥

The bright yellow cocktail dress I wore during the finals for Miss Singapore International 2011 is wonderfully made and beautifully adorned with shimmering crystals.
I love how the intricate designs and refined detailing created a sexy silhouette, giving the judges an illusion of me ‘floating’ gracefully down the runway.

This Spring Summer 2011, Francis Cheong Couture expresses his collection through its interpretation of Club Chinoiserie – think Oriental with 5000 years of history filled with Dragons and Phoenixes, away from the traditional form.
As mentioned by the designer himself, each piece is a statement by itself. “It’s very naughty… vain, flirtatious, fun, fashionable and of course, couture!”
The collection is presented in the most current couture mode with touches of oriental ornament incorporated into a kaleidoscope of colours, beautiful embellishment and flowy silhouettes.
The collection suits the modern society and celebrities; and it celebrates thousand years of art, treasures from Chinese culture and its successful achievement in the world market.
The moment everyone is waiting for… Christy Chung, muse of Francis Cheong.

0800, 7 Dec 10, Port Kelang Jetty
Calvin greeted me with a toothy grin. Sporting a green NewUrbanMale tank top, a black haversack as well as a pair of stylish Havaianas, he looked well prepared for our caper in KL.
“Wow, stunning dress for a day trip out! I am happy to be your partner for the day!” He shot me another dashing smile.
“Come Calvin! Stop looking! It is time to get to the buses.” I turned on my heels and moved towards the jetty, with Calvin catching up swiftly and walking alongside. We headed for Bus 8 where we were warmly greeted by a plump and motherly lady who was to be our bus guide and a swarthy man with a grim face who I reckoned to be the driver of the day.
0900 – 1700, 7 Dec 10, Interesting Locales in Kuala Lumpur
We were discussing about places of interests in Malaysia when the bus rolled to the stop in front of a beautifully preserved heritage building. Calvin and I wandered about, taking photos of the Sultan Abdul Samad Building which was built according to Moorish architecture and style.
“Wow!” this is the tallest flagpole I have witnessed in my life. Standing at close to 100 metres tall, the massive flagpole at Independence Square, also known as Dataran Merdeka, made me felt miniscule. I found out that it was here that Malaysia first raised its flag in 31 August 1957.
My thoughts of architecture broke off abruptly as I focused my attention towards my favorite dessert – chocolate. I stepped off the bus and was greeted by an odd piece of art – it was a statue depicting the implosion of a chocolate mixture as various fruits were dropped into it. At the base of the statue, a round proclaimed the following “Most Innovative Chocolate Award”. I had heard that this Cocoa Boutique was renowned for its chocolate products which came in an amazing variety of flavors and unique concoctions.
I noticed a beautifully adorned holly wreath before I stepped in through the dark-colored oaken door frame. Inside, I was impressed by the efforts the shop had made in connection with the Christmas season. A Christmas tree stood unobtrusively at the entrance, before the shop space opened up and I laid my eyes on a tantalizing array of chocolates displayed on the shelves and racks.
Well if it is so good, I got to give it a try!
“Mmmmm…” I moaned in joy as the chocolatey concoction exploded in my mouth. The feeling was exquisite. Silky soft durian paste rolled around in the recesses of my mouth, caressing my tongue, delivering tingly waves of pleasure down my spine even as the harder bits of milk chocolate created a sweet counter-taste and crunchiness which only served to accentuate the bittersweetness of the durian. If I had a brain at the moment, it must have been blown to bits by the quality of the Belgian Milk Chocolate filled with Rich Creamy Durian.
It was a struggle to bring myself to Earth from Chocolate Heaven. The Cocoa Boutique carried a mind-blowing array of chocolate treats and each was refreshing and unique in its own way. I licked my lips as I started on other new exciting pieces of chocolate. Whilst I breezed through piece after piece of Chilli Chocolate with aplomb to the amazement of the local staff, I couldn’t help but burst out laughing at Calvin who felt as if his tongue was set on fire and he went about fanning his injured tongue. I especially loved the Chilli Chocolate, Durian Milk Chocolate and Tiramisu flavours.
Today I am not a Chinese.
Today, I am a sultry, fair-skinned, North Indian lady modeling the latest saree designs available in Little India. Indian ladies will look at me in jealousy before presuming that the same saree will do them the same justice and proceed to buy it off the shelves at Madras. Indian males will gawk and wish their day away, continually replaying the image they have just caught of me walking around in a saree around town.
I smiled to myself as I tested fabric of the saree. It was like silk, smooth to the touch. The light floral prints was agreeable to me but what truly caught my eye was the translucent centre. This was one sexy saree. As the lady proprietor of the shop assisted me into the traditional Indian garb, I found that it was a tad heavy, probably due to the pure mass and length of the fabric as there was definitely more cloth than my average dress. My first time in a saree was a pleasant surprise even to myself.
Calvin was smiling all the way as I tried on the garment. I guess he must have liked the saree.
A romp around Little India was decidedly incomplete if we did not order the requisite Indian Briyani. As the clock ticked towards 12pm, and our tummies started growling, Calvin found us a homely Indian restaurant, Insaf.
Our tummies found salvation when the food arrived. The fragrance of the spices such as turmeric, cumin and masala mixed into long-grain basmati rice lingered in the air together with the saliva-inducing aroma from the Lamb Shank, Masala Chickken, Papadum and accompanying curry on a platter. We tucked in with relish, thankful for the skills of the Indian chefs in the kitchen.
1800, 7 Dec 10, Anchors Aweigh Lounge
Tonight was the big night. Tonight was the Captain’s Night and everyone will have an opportunity to meet the Captain and his crew at the Anchors Aweigh Lounge followed by a formal dinner at the Romeo & Juliet Restaurant. It was essentially a gala dinner for everyone to dress up like princes and princesses. I had selected a sexy black dinner dress which hugged my curves at the right areas and also left a significant portion of my back uncovered. I grinned cheekily as I imagined myself to be the sexiest lady on board.
Captain Ryan cut a suave figure as he appeared at the front of the lounge. As I had rushed to the lounge earlier in order to grab the choice seats at the front, I was close enough to catch a close view of him. Moving with a sure gait towards the microphone, he exuded an aura of command and confidence. The heavily decorated shoulder epaulettes signaling his rank and mastery of sea craft which adorned his pristine white jacket only served to accentuate that aura. Even though I reckoned that Captain Ryan had to be older than 40 due to his seniority of rank, his broad shoulders, trim physique and ready smile made him seem as though he was not a day past 40.
I managed to catch Captain Ryan for a moment to chit chat and he gamely posed for a picture. I was over the moon to be able to get a photograph with him! Here I was with the man who was piloting my wonderful holiday with the Royal Caribbean!
2000, 7 Dec 10, Romeo & Juliet Restaurant
“I prepared this specially for you. Honey is for your throat.”
I was momentarily caught unawares when Dong Biao appeared at my side. With a flourish, he set down a glass of warm water and a few packets of honey.
A rosy flush came to my cheeks as the OMY group all glanced over at Dong Biao and myself in amazement. Apparently, Dong Biao had remembered when I told him the evening before that I had a sore throat and couldn’t take cold drinks. I was flattered to have him remember.
Here was one waiter who was delivering unparalleled service. This is the Gold Anchor Service promise which I had mentioned earlier on Legend of The Seas, Memories of a Lifetime. I was deeply touched to have experienced such superb service.
“Wow, Dong Biao is great! He remembers,” Catherine noted, and all others concurred.
As Dong Biao retreated to continue his normal duties, our group of 10 settled down to dinner. The food was marvelously prepared. I started with a rosy-coloured Lobster Bisque laced with whipped cream and Cognac, followed by Asian-style Duck glazed with Hoisin, medium-well masterfully flavored Fillet Mignon and Golden Seabass. The seabass was pan-seared to perfection, leaving the fish decidedly soft and tender despite a crisp exterior served on a mound of creamy black olive polenta and accompanied by fried capers and Spanish sofrito that lent the fish a tangy Mediterranean flavor.
2200, 7 Dec 10, That’s Entertainment Theatre
Our night continued with a captivating performance ala Broadway-style musicals by a team of 12 which wowed the crowd with their song and dance routine.
Alessandro stood out, mesmerizing the audience with his powerful vocals and vivacious moves. Yee Leong and myself enjoyed the performance so much that we started moving to the beat of the music for the entire hour.
2330, 7 Dec 10, Viking Crown Lounge
The night was turning out to be an even more enjoyable night than the first with “The Macho, Macho, Men” taking center stage. With a flamboyant move, he stripped off his shirt and started gyrating to the beat. His toned physique was pleasure to the feminine senses.
The ladies in the crowd were paying rapt attention to this sensual dancer. Muscles moved and rippled as he moved gracefully yet containing bursts of vibrant energy which displayed his undeniable masculine strength and endurance. He was hot.
Sometime about 1230am, I was pleasantly surprised to find myself conversing with a charismatic man with dark tanned skin and short cropped hair smooth backwards. He was in fact Behram, Director of International Trade Support & Charters of Royal Caribbean! Bob, as he introduced himself to the OMY group, bought us drinks before settling down beside me. He was very well read and learned. We shared a long conversation across topics such as psychology, travelling experiences and even food. Here was a connoisseur of food who could have his pick of culinary arts onboard yet retained his appetite for more homely and common food in the areas he had travelled to as well as having a desire to try unique fare. Off the cuff, I recommended him to Valentino’s, a cozy rustic feel family run restaurant in rifle range where it’s head by Executive Chef Valentino, served up a variety of splendid Italian fare and also the Durian Milk Chocolate from the Cocoa Boutique.
The night carried on, there were drinks aplenty, and all of had a few glasses of champagne and wine to celebrate the night. In the end though, Darren got a wee bit tipsy and had us all laughing at his antics before we decided to return to our rooms for the night.
I’m so excited to experience the wonders of Thai Massage on Day 3!

I peered over the cubicles as I signaled to Jade. “Let’s OverTime tonight!”
“What?! We have been OT-ing for the past four days!”, she whined.
“No, no. Let’s OverTime! Quick! Pack up and let’s go for some beer and savory skewers!”
“I thought you wanted to do OT…?!”
OverTime wants to bring an interesting experience of “overtime” where professionals and white collars spend the night enjoying the company of each other instead of burning the midnight oil in the office, bringing a whole new meaning to the term “overtime”. It is no longer just about work but also precious time spent with fellow colleagues and business partners to enjoy pleasure within the ever busy city life.
The grand opening of OverTime @ Dempsey Hill was graced by famous Taiwanese top model and actress, Lin Chi Ling 林志玲.
OverTime takes on a rustic yet contemporary facade, with a touch of cosy lodge setting. Designed with three concepts of ambience, the entertainment outlet features an indoor bar-seating style, a private VIP lounge as well as a garden-inspired, relaxing alfresco area.
Right at the centre of OverTime sits a stage that supports the congregation of Singapore’s home-grown music talents, and is the platform for local music showcase. By combining an inviting atmosphere, good beer, menu variety, parking convenience and a bunch of friendly waiters, OverTime is the perfect place to wind down after a hard day’s of work.
“I don’t mind doing OverTime everyday!” exclaimed Jade.
“Let’s tell Boss! I’m sure he will be very happy with us wanting to OverTime everyday.”

Pleasurable. Amusing. Enjoyable. Delightful. Satisfying. Entertaining. These are just some words to describe the emotions as you step into the foray of party in LightsOut!. Held on 12th January 2006 (*gasps* time flew past THAT quickly! It has been almost 5 years!!) at the Ministry of Sound, is SMU’s very first modeling pageant and Kooshi is the main LINGERIE sponsor. Not forgetting human cages specially mounted onto the main dance floor and male models dressed in bathrobes! Wonderful memories of my very first pageant :)
*excerpt taken directly from their website*
“I eat alot”, was her reply, when asked to tell us something about herself. Judging by her svelte figure however, one would find that hard to believe.
Of course, it only made sense when Cherie later revealed that aside from eating, she is also into dance – hiphop, funk, modern and jazz – which explains how she has managed to maintain a slim and healthy physique despite a verocious appetite. (Btw she was NOT kidding about her appetite. During the photoshoot she was constantly roaming around for food!)
Cherie, who exudes a sense of elegance and sophistication, is also one of those who manages to survive on a mere 2-3 hours of sleep a day! Well, that can only mean one thing – more time to dance and eat!
P.S.: I have yet to receive my sultry (yet artistic) photographs. It was rejected by SMU due to its explicit content with all that LACE :x
This is what I’ve been busy with for the past 2 months :)
I’ll be acting as May, a competitive swimmer (specializing in Butterfly stroke) in Felicia Chin’s team.

Thank you for all the lovely email responses and comments given on my blog, facebook and twitter. The recipe can be found on Wonder Chef’s Fan Page. For those who do not have a Facebook account and not able to access the recipe, you can substitute the usual Mascarpone Cheese 500g with 3 packets of Tofu. Yes, it is that simple :)
