The face behind this blog

Janice gave me the opportunity to unleash the 'haupor' in me.

As the title for this meme goes, we have to show our face to our readers. And show it I will! Just don't get sick of my face!

A little history:

Ipoh mali, had 2 amahs looking after me, had all the goodies a girl should have, such as piano lessons, organ lessons, ballet lessons. Did a performance with Michelle Yeo noh, our Bond girl, don't pway pway! Then my mother realized she was wasting money on my ballet lessons as I could never do the back bend, and all I knew best was to flap my arms around like a pretty butterfly, so she stopped my dreams of becoming a ballerina.

I never stopped dancing though. I love dancing. Can't do back bend, nevermind. Sway hips, can? So I swayed my hips through school until now, although the swaying nowadays are more to imitating the swing of the crocodile's tails for Aidan's sake rather than the lambada.

I love the camera. In front of it then, more behind now. Getting old marr. Chan Sam Lock then was THE studio for camwhoring. I can't believe I actually did it, hahaha! And then we always had the camera ready at Tambun Inn, the only decent hotel before the arrival of Excelsior, and then more. HVD and some Hong Kong actors stayed at the inn, and we took all opportunities to get 'clicked' with them.

And darn these pics, now I really have to go on a crash diet before I return to Malaysia for a month long holiday. Ya ya ya! Tell me it's no use coz I'll be pigging out. But at least when I gain the weight, I will be 'normal' when I get back here. Get what I mean? Fingers crossed, let me lose 4 kg before I fly!

By the way, if I look sweet, gentle and innocent (ahem!) to you, don't let it fool you. I've done most naughty things and although the most meek in swearing and yelling among the sisters, I guarantee they have never done the things I did. Not about to mention it here and bare all for a good spanking now, crazy meh.

And for now, enjoy the faces of me!

And here's the instruction to this meme :

1st step
Post a short blog article that includes a photograph (or a series of photos) showing the face behind your blog. If you already show a photo somewhere on your site (such as in your about page), then make your post more interesting and choose a photo that’s not currently online.

2nd step
Include links to other people that have displayed a photo, or include their photos in your post, adding a reference.

I'd like to see the face of:
