More than just a childhood dream
When I was younger, I love watching tv! You know, how little girls (not all but most of them) always dream about the glamour of appearing on tv... Haha yeah, I'm one of 'em too!
Being an actress is my childhood dream... No one knows about it, not even my parents. No doubt I'm able to make friends quite easily because I'm willing to open up to people and welcome them with my brightest smile. I may appear to be that confident, outspoken, talkative social butterfly but deep down inside me, I'm really pretty shy. No one ever believes me when I say I'm shy thou, oh wells.
About 1.5 months ago, I thought I signed up for a print-ad assignment but only when I was on my way to casting, Shine told me it's actually an acting assignment. I hesitated, thinking if I should hop on to the next bus because I never believed that I've got a talent for acting... I've got stage fright, I'm shy and never confident of myself but she encouraged me to go for it and yes, I did. :)
Two weeks later, I was called up for a second round of selection. I was (literally) jumping for joy! It was an on-the-spot casting with the producers and directors with about 18 talents? I was really nervous because almost everyone has an acting background except me and a few others. Nevertheless, I left lightheartedly... Nope, it wasn't because I was confident but I thought it was already quite a privilege for me.
Three days later, I received good news that I was selected! I was (literally) jumping (higher) for joy! Knowing that my childhood dream is coming true, what more can I ask for?
You must be thinking: Damn, what a lucky girl.
Yeah, I know right. I'm truly blessed. :)
For the past 2.5 weeks, I've been working on the assignment and yesterday was the last official day of filming. Everyday is a tiring but fulfilling day. I have never complained once. In fact, be it the dry rehearsals or filming till wee hours, I was enjoying every single bit of it.
The past 2.5 weeks of filming has been an amazing journey and definitely an eye-opener for me. Meeting/working with well-known, experienced & professional producers, directors and cinematographers and of course, the ever nice, caring & encouraging crew is such a privilege for me.
Behind those glamour, it's nothing but pure hard (team) work and patience.
I will never forget the care & concern they shower on me when I fell & strained my ankle. All because of the worried look on their faces, I couldn't bear t cry even longer and make everyone else suffer under the hot scorching sun even though it was really tough to do an instant switch from crying to laughing.
When it's all over, I started smiling & laughing again because I know it's so damn worthwhile that everyone's hard work has finally paid off after filming under the hot scorching sun for one whole morning and afternoon.
Last but not least, this journey wouldn't be as fun without these four other awesome main casts! Five different characters (be it in real life or scripted) coming together and becoming really good friends since day 1 of rehearsal is really hard to come by.
I'm definitely gonna miss all the silly fun! Be it the switching of characters during rehearsals, asking each other to close their mouth, that stupid challenge (of capturing my opened-mouth) among the boys, mimicking my "Oiiiii", "Noooooo" & "Seriously, B?!", making fun of how our caucasian producers pronounced our AD's name, bitching of that act-diva including the producers, JD and the whole crew.
Ahhhhh, I'm so gonna miss all of that...
After this whole episode, I've learnt a lesson: One should never be afraid to grab any opportunity that's coming your way because you really don't know what the future brings... And life is indeed full of surprises. Like I always say: One life, young once, live it well with no regrets :)

Hopefully, MSF Sparty rehearsal's gonna end earlier than expected so I'll be able to catch-up with the producers, directors & the main casts tonight! -crosses fingers-
I'm no angel, I'm just me
But I will love you endlessly.
