The Day I Dish Some Dirt on The HEROES World Tour

As most of you may already know, the cast of Heroes is coming to Singapore this week. The whole ensemble won't be here, of course, as most of them are still filming for season 2 (which premiers on September 24th on NBC in the US). Four of them, namely Masi Oka (Hiro), Ali Larter (Nikki/Jessica), Greg Grunberg (Parkman) and Sendhil Ramamurthy (Dr Suresh), will be in town for the Heroes World Tour to promote the release of the Heroes: Season 1 DVD as well as the new season of the show.

When and where will they be? Well, I've got the dirt right here, right now. Here's what I know so far:

- Their gala dinner will be at The Four Seasons Hotel (Singapore), which is also where they will be staying at.

- Their meet-the-fans session will be at VivoCity on 31st Aug 2007, from 2pm to 5pm.

For those who are going there, please don't be empty handed. Bring along some Heroes memorabilia for autographs and always keep your cameras at hand to snap photos of them. Because we can hardly get our hands on any Heroes stuff over here, what I'd suggest is that you guys go print out some photos of the actors from the screen shots of the show (if you wanna get their autographs). Photos are available free online at NBC's official website. Alternatively, just use Google.

The Day I Talk About Saying Grace

I'm on leave today and tomorrow! No I didn't choose to take leave; We were all forced to, or should I say, we weren't given a choice. Ah well, that's the army for you.

What I did while on leave today:
- Helped Mum out at the office with her e-mails
- Caught hairspray with Andrew D
- Bought sh*t-loads of comics

Onto my topic for the day:

I remember very vividly my first childhood mealtime prayer, which goes like this (with a rhythmic harmony) "Thank You for the world so sweet, oh hum, thank you for the food we eat, yum yum, thank You for the birds that sing-a-ling-a-ling, Thank You Lord for everything! Amen!"

It was such a cute kindergarten mealtime Grace.

Just had dinner at home with my 'rents and as usual, we said grace. Maybe it's because my mind is usually elsewhere when we say grace, but it was my first time actually taking note of what Mum said. "Thank You God for giving us these food. Please bless the food that we are about to eat and the people who have prepared this meal. Amen."

"...and the people who have prepared this meal" means herself! And herself only! I wanted to burst out laughing so badly.

I didn't, of course. I'm a good son.

The Day I Talk About My Cousin's Korean Girlfriend

My cousin Jowett came back to Singapore recently for a visit after years of studying in Australia. Along with him was his latest accessory: a Korean girlfriend. I don't know if this has anything to do with the Korean craze that's taking over Asia these days.

Of course I'm kidding when I say that Gina's an "accessory". She's more than that. She's like the perfect housewife. By that I mean she's got all the 3 C's required: cook, cleaner, caretaker. Do you know that she randomly whips up good food with anything she can find in the kitchen fridge? And just the other day, I find my laundry folded perfectly 5 minutes after I brought it into the house (I had to rush off to the toilet, which explains why she had time to fold). The only thing that bothers me about her is her craziness for kimchi (Korean-style pickled vegetables in lots of chilli and garlic). According to Jowett, she needs to have her kimchi with every meal. To me, that's just scary.

[The following parts of this post in red will be what I suppose Gina is thinking.]

Before they went back to Indonesia, my parents (plus me and my other cousin Lenny aka Clara aka whatever-name-she's-using-nowadays) brought them out for a nice seafood dinner at East Coast Park.

The Day I Almost Died

Just some updates over here today. Not really in the mood to blog much. Last Tuesday, I collapsed during one of our training sessions. Thankfully, I'm still alive and well. The doctor's saying that it's probably some heart problem.

Please pray for me.
