I am everywhere

I am being spotted everywhere (list here).

But I am still very unknown, so I can still go out in shoddy clothes and no makeup, which is something I quite enjoy.

As much as I want fame and fortune, I am scared of having to dress up just to go to the neighbourhood market.

Even non-good-looking celebrities have to look glam all the time, don’t they?

Another one of my commercials (Toyo correction tape) just went on air.

And I saw my EyeRelax video playing in an endless loop outside Guardian Pharmacy at Marina Square. I don’t think anybody watches it.

But please go and buy one because if the response is good, they’ll make it a TV commercial. It’s very expensive, though.

I saw my Carlsberg commercial in the cinema two nights ago and, boy, do I look like a tart.

Okay, I shall stop criticising myself now.

On a totally separate note, Chinese New Year is a beauty hazard. I ate too many Japanese peanuts and now I have a pimple on my nose. I haven’t even started on the bak kwa yet.

This is really sad. Peanuts are evil!

I’m going to bed to sleep the pimple away.

    Yes, very accurate observation about the video. I saw the device, but never knew there was an accompanying video. :P

    The device is quite flimsy looking, machiam like toy.

    Just caught I Not Stupid Too today. Wow your voice is schweet!! Haha, often wonder whether its your real voice in those ads but in the movie its the real deal. And you’re a great actress too. Especially loved the scene where your character was asked how babies come about. LOL! Keep it up, you rock!!

    Derrick: Thanks for the compliments! I’m surprised what you said about my voice. I kinda hate my voice and feel embarrassed every time I hear myself on TV. But, well, I’m relieved there are people who don’t think like me. lol. :P

    Now why would you have your voice? Its so niiiiiiiiiiiiice. LOL. Its a pity we don’t see you on TV more often. Mediacorp must be blind not to have offered you a contract. HMPH!!

    Hehe. I think my voice is too nasal and sometimes rough. Actually, I lost out a big juicy role in a MCS production because they said my voice not sweet enough for that role. :(

    Hah! That proves my point that Mediacorp doesn’t know talent if it snuck up behind them & bit them in the butt! Your voice totally rocks! Besides, surely its one’s acting talent that matters. Voice can always be dubbed. Zoe Tay’s voice was dubbed for ages anyway.

    Yeah, I think it’s been quite clear from past history that Mediacorp is not good place for real solid actors. The impression it gives me is more like a place for people who can suck up and impress the right bosses to succeed…

    The fact that actors with mediocre acting skills gets to be called the “Ah-Ges” and “Ah-Jies” of mediacorp is sufficient proof.

    But enough of pessimistic talk, I’m very sure Sheylara will succeed, just keep perservering with the passion for whatever you do (acting/gaming/eating etc)!

    May the Force be with you!

    Hahahaa. Your name is really cute. Took me a closer look before I realised what it really is. ROFL.

    Anyway, MediaCorp does have several actors with superb acting skills. And for me, I think I am not any better than them also. LOL. Well, no matter. I just know I’m getting better every time I do it. :P

    Yeap, just saw the ad, but I didn’t register that was Qiao Yun until the end when I thought, “This lady sure is familiar”. Afterwards, I recalled some mention of some “Magi Clean” ad on this blog and aha, relevation…

    GJ Qiao Yun! Another truimphant performance!

    @Sheylara: Bad link alert! Unless of course, you meant for the above list of your appearances to be bogus:) In any case, 2 years on from this post, and you’re in a lead role of a feature film! Attagirl:)
