Asiarooms Social Travel Star Finalists!

Last year was filled with competitions… There was the Panasonic Channel-e EJ competition, 987fm So You Wanna Be a DJ, Singtel Casting Call. My first for this year would be one for Asiarooms.com! Paired with Vivienne Tseng (the sassy chic whom I met from Singtel Casting Call last year!), we’re ready to take on the world! (hahah pun intended)

Here’s our entry that got us to the Top 10!

Basically, the winner of this competition gets to travel to 4 different countries and review 12 different hotels just so you know which to go to, and which to shun! The finals are happening tomorrow (26th April) and I’m currently writing this while dyeding my hair a new colour. If you’re reading this before 2359 on the 25th, do remember to head on over to the Asiarooms.com Facebook page to vote for Vivienne and myself!

Also, check out the finalists vid here!

Yeap! We promise to buy back souvenirs and give them to lucky winners so hopefully thats an added incentive!

So please vote for us by heading over to https://www.facebook.com/Asiarooms now! :)

So You Wanna Be A DJ!

Those following me on twitter would have known that I haven’t been well for the past week or so. I was running a fever in the weekend and had the worst sore throat… ever.

There was a lot of hesitation to whether I wanted to even participate in the open auditions to be a DJ, but eventually I convinced myself that I’ll work my voice out somehow. My body was in a really bad shape, and queueing for over 6 hours in heels really took a toll. (So much, I didn’t even bother taking any photos.)

Auditions went really slowly at first, and by the time it was my turn, each “audition” took only about 2 minutes. There were over 300 hopefuls trying out for 987fm itself, and shortlisting 8 meant that I only had about a 4% chance of being chosen.

But boy am I glad I didn’t give up during the queueing process.

I’ve got through! I’ve been shortlisted in the Top 20 & will be going for the second round of auditions for So You Wanna Be A DJ! Can’t wait, it’s really a huge huge step towards fulfilling my dream of being a radio deejay and frankly, I’m still quite in shock. I can’t deny I’m afraid but excited to see whats ahead, and kinda afraid I get booted out in the first round, but I really should be thankful and happy enough that I got shortlisted in the first place. Motivation boost +100!

Here’s a shoutout to all those who have supported me in my emcee-ing/hosting journey the whole time. To my friends who have shown me concern when I was unwell, to those who encouraged me to go for this audition.

THANK YOU!

 

Also, huge thanks to Wern who came down midway while queueing. Thank you for standing in queue for me so I could take breaks in between, and for holding on when I was pukey and such :)
