- got a head-up by a very important person in the industry... for me to be part of Supperclub Singapore. wowness! resident dj.. event manager...server... lighting jocks... why not?!!! I AM SO GAME. will come back with juicier news.
- won the Juice DJ Quest 08, which made me the first female DJ in Singapore to have gotten that title since the comp started 7 years back. Happy, glad, elated but mostly calmly overwhelmed. strange. verdict from ppl on and off the dance floor : good flow with the most sophisticated sound, good crowd response, tight mixing, and good showmanship. *blushes*
- big big war with mr castro due to a case of mistaken hopes and expectations. I still have that image of him going up the stage during my set just to kiss me on my cheeks tho. never had him grant me that big of a public display of affection. wished someone had that captured.

since i don't have much of a photographic memory, this blog has existed solely for that purpose so when i turn 60 with less than 1 RAM left in my brain, i can turn to this to see if my life is worth enuff to be made into a film and start to wonder who will play me then. ok ..
i have missed recording a lot of important moments here actually, like. the last few days at the ward and the operation theatre... (squirms), my debut at maison KL, leading to my meet-ups with some of the most fantastic and talented ppl in KL. not to say, maddest. and it also being my travelling debut with the loony i adopted ( read: the boyfriend) . peektures are spread all out in FB . feast on it if you want.
and next stop, Colombo. am not hoping much but it's sure gonna be a down-to-earth kinda adventure. with my chaperone, my udg bags and the painkillers :)
actually, there are a lot more. but i forgot. will return when one by one hits me in the head. and when i have the energy to elaborate. god i hate antibiotics. it makes everything i eat taste like paper clips.
p.s .. it's been raining like forever. where is summer? i meant, the sun. ?

I actually came prepared (mentally and emotionally) to have beer bottles and 5 inches heels (and other kinds of waste product) landing on my forehead. But after 2 hrs and 15 mins, I was pretty much safe. Even after 2 requests which I denied subtlely by first saying “ I’ll try …” only to have pre-decided ( no offence intended cos I love these tracks to death too)… that there is no way Gabriel and Dresden’s remix of “till there was you” or Sandy Rivera’s “Changes” would fit into my Booka Shade, Jona, Pryda, john dahlback, Nathan fake, lindstrom, aldo cadiz, shinedoe’s… menu of the day.….ok..simply put, I may be nice but I’m not an effing jukebox or ur top 40s dj. When will people ever get it? Since this question had already been asked for the last 10 over years, I guess, never.
Shout outs to AdamC, Ken, Terence and friends, Sonny and friends, Kazly who dropped by while still on duty at Barfly, Isa & friends, Amir, thee boyfriend (who could only be there to warm me up but good enough), Roseanna and the whole jing gang, Shidy, Eli!!!, Clive and friend, and all those faces i have seen before but whose names i don't know yet and faces i didn't recognise but they still rock the dancefloor till closing time.
Thanks for letting me share my music with you guys. It's starting to feel like it's better than sex. seriously.but chocolates still rules ok.

or do i have to walk past you again?
Friday, October 05, 2007
it would be a nice way to remind me of wot i have been up to while my
sanity and memory were still intact)
so, Boutique is back! ( or should i say, was back! )
while i was in the middle of my set at O Bar on a monday night, i was called to play for the gig which was to be in 2 days time. Tho the week was already mad to the max, I said yes. *shoot blank bullet to the head*
but wot do you know? i must say, it was a great night. threw some tribal, tech and deep. held the room from 2 till 3.30 before the crowd was lured by the banging sound of the main arena. fair enough. the last half hour, i played for the most impt person; ME, and of cos the bartenders and the servers.
a bummer that i had missed Debbie's and Jeremy's set. thanks to the day job which was dragged into the night.
oh, wait. just one thing. it strucked me that i had so much of a composure behind the decks for the first time. (other than my own that is) . and i mean, SO MUCH. without the help of any forms of errrrr...intoxication. PURE had always been quite an intimidating place for me. makes me freeze at the wrong time, and "crisis mgt" is a killer. i hope to God it is becoming second nature. maybe. else it would have been the best delusions of grandeur ever, which i would dare trade with a year supply of hot chocolate. swheet.

go ahead world, sue me for i have always believed that the only competition is within myself, and that i so loathed to be judged, especially for things that i love doing, especially by people who has no idea what it's like to be me. hence it makes me wonder why i had put myself in that spot in the first place. i am the biggest irony yet again. God bless. :)
after a couple of tight slaps in the face, a long nap and a dozen of synflex, i thought it was simply natural to get into the deep beautiful melancholy of everything that's happened. so yeah, let's indulge.
"have the courage to fail big, and stick around. make them wonder why you're still smiling. that's true greatness."
i know i am not great. but i can be. and let that be on my own terms.
my heart is with all of the semi-finalists and the finalists. we have all indeed made it, and we're all champs holding on to different maps.

for once, i wanna stop being that someone, in fact, anyone, who anybody would only know what they've got until it's gone. hah!
sadly, i have come to a pt where there is no second chance. no matter wot.

but i had it with the fucking world today.
to those who constantly seek my attention only when they're in dire straits, yet question and mock my reason for being less "complete" than they are, i hope, and i fucking hope. you'll. choke. to. death. with. your. own. smugness.

am blessed with the consolations in the form of
1)a good warm hug from the birthday boy, albeit belated, in return of a limited edition trance mix which was finally completed after many many sleepless nights. ( note to self: i am indeed capable of creating somethin beautiful even in my most darkest moments). so, chin up you dumbass!
2)a debut at Hacienda tonight. a deep house set awaits. wot a beautiful way to end the monday and start the week.
i thank Mo Selle, sister morphine and James for their endearing support while i was struggling to find my bearings again.

now, even his mere presence makes me wanna bring him home or i'll die. heh. i wished i could rewind to whatever that striked my stupid nerves and erase myself. if not him. ( note to self: i shall not go back to the dark and painful side. i shall not)
but since i'm quite a dumbass, i don't want to. even if it's lending me all the disorientations of the world.
ok, mushy crap aside, shout-outs to the following deckmasters Effen, Josh P, Jason T, Godwin, Josh M, Marcus, Kennerve, Ken, Eam, Paul Johnson, Ramesh K, Kenneth F, Has, Damian Saint.
and how can i forget? the rest of the crews mending their own consoles, my dear mo selle! ( the coolest chic in the planet) , fahmy and gang at the lighting/effects console. (yeah, a crash course will prolly lead to me blowing up the main room. i'll reconsider. )
listening and watching them play/hard at work makes me wanna constantly perfect my craft. even if perfection is not even the best thing to achieve. i love you all deep deep ok.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.

funny how things could turn around after making yet another most difficult decision in your life. it's also pretty amazing what we find when we're ready to really see without prejudice. yeah, perhaps i was blind. but maybe i was just too kind. any idiot will know that the theory, " if u do good, ppl will do good to you," only works in a perfect world where the police comes before ur pizza hut delivery. note to self : dont expect the bull not to charge cos u're a vegetarian. say that again. dont expect the bull not to charge cos u're a vegetarian. cool. (i'm not a vegetarian tho cos i love cheese too much i can die for it)
so, my heart's an accessory now. it should have been by default.

notes on the happenings this week:
balcony set on thursday - getting a bit stale here despite i am oh so loved. *bang head again*
amino on friday - the antarctica of the cannery. i am aching to introduce new sound to that room.
what's your poison@aurum on friday - push as hard as you want but do not steal the ppl away from the main room (if u can) . so maybe i'll play...err commercial jingles. ;P
programming and sponsorship papers to complete by FRIDAY - bigger darn.
i am missing those times when i started djing at my own time own pace or whenever these fingers itch. being on the official roster is definitely a different ballgame altogether.( i can hear my alter ego saying, " i told you so.") but i count my blessings everyday (really!) ..like this..medical bills for migraine: $60, new tracks per week: $100, midnight charges for cab rides home : $120. the opportunities and the trust given : priceless. priceless. priceless.
see! despite all the f-words thrown out, even to the blank wall sometimes, i still am that inspired. and grateful. thank you mastercard.

so, i am starting to think that it takes a lot of me to take in the harder sounds now. since i've been internalising and playing out the softer side of house for the sets at The Cannery, it appears to be that my soul is making it's way back. plus i don't need to be intoxicated and i don't need 130 bpms to move me anymore. ahah! good for the wallet and prolly the ear.
shite. that reminds me. i have a mix to work on for balcony and i'm barely a quarter into it. please thursday, come a bit later.

BBBC wasn't so eventful despite Diesel rocking the decks, except for finally getting to meet Dj Kamo and the lovely bunch from KL. i'll swing by with my decks ok. just prepare the red carpet and the standing ovation. ;)

i am, much to my dismay, also trying very very hard not to miss, yearn, crave, want, pine, etc etc... for the dufus. but at 3 freaking am, the mind knows no logic nor reason. ( i hate these two bigg words). so it chose to indulge; and continue to miss, yearn, crave, want, pine, etc...ing... for the said dufus, leading to more petty thoughts of the what-ifs and the what-nots. apparently it's too heavy a task to accomplish without having the urge to plant a bullet to the head. ( i seems to want to do this allll the time. gawd.) i think i'll take a raincheck.
