Thank you so much Sophie! We are all enjoying your updates!

First, do hope you are better now...

And what a lot you have going on!!

Screenwriting! Horror Movies??!! Job Interviews! PETA Spokesperson!! A bright and exciting future for sure!

And what incredible poems/letters from those children. Freddy especially really gives you a glimpse into his world.

And NICE pictures! I think I recognize everyone but the second one down--who are they please?? He looks familiar but...

Thank you again for sharing your life with us!

Ooohhhh Ccccooooolllllll............

Yeah I'm having fun posting things up here..... really great to have this blog.  :-*

Peaches, you're too kind. For every single thing I'm getting into, it's many more hours of hard, hard, hard, hard work.....
it's fun to get into projects but in the creative field, you often have to come up with 50 ideas before two or even one works out.....

I'm glad you guys are coming over and taking a peek.....

I'm much better now thanks, but still not 100%..... the coughing has improved but it's still lingering.....

Okay.....the second photo down is Ramon (left), the sponsor from Caltex..... and Greg (right), Vice-President of Ad-Sales, AXN Singapore.....
So they are the big boys who made the show possible!!! heehehehehe..... :yess: :hearts:

Hi everyone,

This weekend was the Lan Kwai Fong Carnival, that's why Soho was especially lively and buzzing more than usual on this side of the planet.  :waves:

Here's a peek.... at the carnival.

I'm actually really looking forward to Halloween parties coming up..... I think I got an idea what costume I'm getting heehee..... *wink wink

p.s. Sorry I haven't been able to edit footage as fast because of work etc..... more a little bit laterz....   :jumpy:

Ep 8: Beach Camping Part 1

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkzPsFa4YOk


This was the long weekend holiday in Hong Kong to celebrate Chung Yeung Festival (19 Oct). The last long weekend for the rest of the year. I had to edit this footage first because I had so much fun with my friends hiking on Friday afternoon, then cooking in an open fire and camping overnight on the beach under the stars. Yes it was even one of the rare times I could actually see stars in Hong Kong. Enjoy  ;D

Part II is a bit PG.... so gentle caution first hehehee.....

Here is the first of Sophie's video diaries:



From Sophie:  Deepest apologies.... I've made this video private for now because I've been asked to edit a little part out of what I said. I'll re-post very soon.

Ep 9: Beach Camping Part II (PG)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhCLiAVQolc

It's awesome what happens when friends from all over come together.... you not only get a taste of difference cultures, traditions, languages, but also their love of fruity beverages haahhahaaa. It's amazing what we can learn from someone's culture just from what they eat and drink  :jam:

Sophie Diaries Beach Camping Weekend continues....


Ep 10: Beach Camping Part 3 - Rock-climbing!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2pcb1BgOv0


We woke up early on Saturday morning to go rock-climbing at a nearby waterfall a friend had told us about. We walked along the water to find it, but actually found a HUGE bull (with HUGE HUGE horns) happily glazing on grass. It was walking on the same narrow trails that hikers were taking too. So I'm sure it shocked a few people! At the waterfall, the weather was awesome and we climbed all morning. No ropes.... just mind over body! If we slipped off the rock-face, it was a plunge into the pond at the foot of the waterfall. Yippee!!!   :tup:

Hi everyone......

How did you all enjoy Racers Revealed? If you're in Asia....

Hahaahhaha actually I have not watched it myself because I was having dinner with Monica, Ed, and some HK friends on Thursday night. I hope to catch it soon and write some comments here.

So after dinner, we were heading back to our friend's place to chill and we actually caught the last 5 minutes of the show... and I saw in the graphics that I am now officially TEAM SINGAPORE.

I would love to represent Hong Kong as I live and work here now, but I'm Singaporean after all. So I'm super glad at the same time. I guess it was confusing to be both and the producers chose Singapore for me in the end.   :yess:

Thanks Producers   :kissy:       :hearts:

Banzai gave us the promo/commercial but that is all most of us have seen...   :'(

Can't wait till we can figure out a way to watch! Hope it was dynamite for you! :hearts:

Hi Sophie! I watched the episode. I gave my impressions in the commentary thread, but overall, I do like the look of many teams. There's an interesting dynamic between you and Aurelia. That's going to be interesting to watch down the road.

Thanks to a special guy  ;D  for giving me awesome tips on making my videos better and more entertaining.... and a very experienced producer.

Oh last night was my friend Claudia's last night in Hong Kong and we partied like there's no tomorrow   :jam:

We are all SO SO SO sad that she's heading back home to Austria, Europe....  :'(

I don't like drinking at all actually, perhaps just the occasional wine but I LOVE beer fest because of the atmosphere. I've shot so much footage.... hahaah I'm not really looking forward to logging the footage for the edit.

I'll post some photos very soon   :hearts:

Okay.... didn't have much time yet to sort out my photos because of work and travelling a little bit.... but it's all worth it! I had so much fun at the media preview in Singapore.... watching the first episode with my home boys.... Collin and Adrian. And it was such a wonderful surprise to see Brett there, plus his MUM. He just happened to be in Singapore at the right time.... so he joined the party too. I just had to tell her that she's got the best son ever!!! Brett's mum is calm and cool just like Brett....haahhaha...... sexy Diane also popped by to party.....

I also got to meet Collin's best friends.... Adrian's parents..... they were smiling all night long.... you can see how proud they are of both of the boys just from their faces!!!

Collin, Adrian and Brett.... :kissy:  how much hulk can I handle in one night hahahhahaha....  ;)
It was just awesome to be surrounded with such positive energy.... I felt great!

Sharon and Melody/ Team Singapore from Season 1 also joined us for the night... it was simply great to finally meet them! I had such laughs with Melody that night, she is such a happy and funny person in real life....

We heard from the Caltex sponsor that feedback from media was very good and some even commented that the party should have lasted longer  :jam:

Here are some photos from the night....  :jumpy:

p.s. I've been shooting more video diaries, but just can't stay awake long enough to edit the footage, but I will get my butt on them very, very soon.... deepest apologies :groan:
