Think for me

I’m going to try an experiment today. I shan’t say what it is because then it won’t work, will it?

Ok, let’s put that experiment aside for now and think happy thoughts for me.

See, I’ve been trying out this thing called  “positive thinking” for years, but it doesn’t seem to be working. I haven’t achieved the goals I believed I would achieve.

So I figure I need help. Maybe if lots of people helped me think positive thoughts, it might work.

Let’s do a positive think swap. I think positive for you, you think positive for me. Tell me what you wish for in life and I’ll think it for you whenever I can, how about that?

It’s kinda like prayer, if you must. People believe that the more people pray for the same thing, the likelihood of it happening increases.

I’m not a religious person, so I go for new-age mumbo jumbo such as positive thinking.

Now, what you need to think for me is very simple. Think that I’m going to be a famous actress. Simple.

Part of the fame thing is vanity. Who doesn’t want to be famous? Ok, I know many who don’t, but for every 10 people who don’t, maybe a hundred others do (but also bearing in mind that fame exacts high prices, too.)

The other part is that I want to work. I want to perform good roles in good productions every day of my life. 

I have put in a lot of effort, swallowed a lot of pride, endured being treated like a third-class citizen without complaint and always with a smile, for years, but the jobs I want aren’t coming. So I think fame will help.

Of course, it’s a chicken and egg thing. Fame won’t come without first getting that BIG JOB. But BIG JOBS don’t happen to unfamous nobodies.

Something has to come first. I’ve tried working my way up from scratch and it’s not working, so I’ve decided to change my goal from simply getting good roles to being famous. It’s a mind power thing, see. It’s ultimately the same goal, but huge ripples can be caused by tiny mind shifts.

Don’t ask me to do a Steven Lim, ok. I want to be a serious actress. I want to win serious awards with my acting.

I want to spend six months working on one role, creating it, living it, perfecting it, instead of doing two zillion insignificant roles over two months and enduring countless audition calls and rejections.

Watch Singapore Dreaming. Watch Singapore Dreaming. Watch Singapore Dreaming. Watch Singapore Dreaming. Watch Singapore Dreaming. Watch Singapore Dreaming. Watch Singapore Dreaming. Watch Singapore Dreaming. Watch Singapore Dreaming. Watch Singapore Dreaming. Watch Singapore Dreaming. Watch Singapore Dreaming. Watch Singapore Dreaming. Watch Singapore Dreaming. Watch Singapore Dreaming. Watch Singapore Dreaming.

I want to have multitudes of people come watch me perform.


It hurts to work so hard for years only to get rejected on a daily basis.

It hurts when people invite me to audition for extra parts. I have to be famous so that won’t ever happen again.

Well, things are going to change because I have been attending acting classes and reading acting books and getting people to positive think for me.

If hard work and lots of positive thinking don’t do it for me, I’m going to have to take up a case against the Forces That Be, whatever they may be.

By the way, Singapore Dreaming is premiering this Thursday so bring your whole family to it because it’s a great movie. And because I’m in it.

Mainly because it’s a great movie.

My tiny two-scene role isn’t anything to write home about, although it’s nice to be part of the movie. I’m a big fan of Colin Goh and felt unbelievably honoured to be chosen as part of his cast. Or maybe it was his wife and co-director, Woo Yen Yen, who gave me a vote, which is just as well because she’s an unbelievably sweet person. I don’t know, because both of them auditioned me together.

The Goonfather is also a huge Colin Goh fan. He’s got a copy of the Coxford Singlish Dictionary lying around at home. Nanny Wen drove us all crazy one day by reading aloud all the hokkien swear words in it with her banana accent. It was, I believe, a very educational day for her.

So, go watch Singapore Dreaming.

I know you will because my subliminal advertising is just brilliant and it has injected into you the inexplicable urge to go watch the movie. Hasn’t it?

~ !!!!Watch Singapore Dreaming!!!! ~

Also, please remember to positive think for me.

How nice you are.

    I have decided not to think positive. I am.

    Nothing will change in you until your thoughts become your belief. It was the revelation for me. The difference between saying I will make $12,000/month by next year June 20th, and when I actually wrote it down.

    A small tweak in the mind, and a large impact on actions.

    hmm… I will sing this to you everyday. ;)

    “I don’t know what it is,
    That makes me feel like this,
    I don’t know who you are,
    But you must be some kind of superstar,
    Coz you got all eyes on you no matter where you are,
    (you just make me wanna play).”

    Ruok: Great! Thanks for being the first to leave a comment? :P

    Minru: Thank you! Hope you enjoy the movie.

    Mother: Stop beating a dead horse! Dead is dead… not gonna come alive again. :P

    Vandalin: You’re right, of course. Belief is very important. I have a lot of belief in myself, which is one reason why I haven’t quit after so long. But it does get discouraging once in a while when you wake up and realise that you’ve been believing in something that isn’t there. It’s a thin line between belief and self-delusion. lol, isn’t it? By the way, thanks for the compliment!

    Goonfather: lol. :)

    ^_^: Thank you very much. I like your name, lol.

    cowboy: Hey, thanks a lot! And thanks for plugging me in your blog. That was a very, uh, interesting take.

    desmond!!: Thank you, thank you. :) I hope you enjoy SD too!

    Uh…. nobody’s gonna tell me your goals so I can “think” for you too? :P

    Hi, I saw Singapore Dreaming and I thought it was a great film. I thoroughly enjoyed it; it’s one of the best local films to come out in a while. People were tearing towards the end; this has to be a good sign.

    Your performance was noteworthy and you did very well considering the amount of screen-time you’ve been allocated with. I thought Yann Yann was tremendous, though, and if there ever was an local Oscar awarded for Best Actress that this would be it.

    I watched Singapore Dreaming only last week and you look hilarious inside being such a mean wife (i mean it as a compliment). I always tend to look out when there is any appearing of u in any movie/tv ads etc etc. Your appearance has a entertaining effect seriously, maybe can consider being on play/drama :)

    Oh ya and it was a great show~
