The Lion Men Wrap Dinner X Adverts- ShopDIYGalore, ILove-Cupcakes, Vogue Avenue, ShopAtMayfair

The Lion Men
Wrap Dinner

"It's been only about two weeks but it feels like it's already a month ago..." Thats what everyone at The Lion Men wrap dinner party were saying. Including myself. We can't believe how fast time flies and how everyone kinda look different within just that two weeks of being apart. To me, it felt more like a Chinese New Year reunion dinner then a wrap party. 

I remember how the guys were all so desperate to get their hair cuts while we girls, can't wait to dye them and get our manicures done. It's been two weeks since our last day of filming, two weeks since I've recovered from exhaustion and two weeks since we haven't seen each other at all, with the exception of Instagram of course.

I've grown to really love these people and we've all fostered a great friendship. We've been through the tough times together, working through the night and waking up the next morning with so little rest. I can safely say that I was once a zombie. 

Apart from all the exhaustion and injuries we've had, there were good times together as well. Really good times. I still remember the first few times we all trained together while trying to get to know each other better. Everything fell into place nicely and unlike what you see in dramas, there were no backstabbing or gossiping among us. We came out so strong together as a team that I feel that these people are my brothers and sisters. This whole journey wouldn't be the same if it was experienced with an entirely different group of people.

I am so glad that I am finally able to introduce them to you. You see, we can't post any pictures of us taken on set in our outfits cause that has to be obviously saved for the big screen. But with these pictures taken during our recent wrap dinner, I can post them up for everyone to see who my newfound friends are! hehehe. So here we go! :)

This is Celyn! One of the most likable person to be with ever. She's so hilarious, really down to earth and relatable. And yes guys, I know what you're thinking, she is half Korean. hehehe
Sheenaz and Hui Xin! They're both so naturally pretty. I know cause we've all seen each other bared face before countless amount of times. These girls (including Celyn) were the ones I've spent my days and nights with for that past 3 months. We know each other pretty well I must say, and we've had SO MANY great and REALLY memorable memories together. We've grown so close that we share tons of secrets that is to be kept within us. You girls know what I'm talking about. HAHAHA 
#YXgirls
Sorry for the interruption. I just had to post a picture of these glorious Xiao Long Baos. hehehe. They're one of the best things mankind has ever created. OMG... craving for them now.
I can't reveal much for now. But I'm so glad to be able to have met these lovely bunch of people. They are the ones that kept me going through the darker times of the filming process. Filming is tough. It's tiring and it takes a toll on your body. Lots of times, you might wanna just break down and cry and give up. But the encouragement and words of optimism from these people really made me stronger and I couldn't have done it without them. I love you all my #TeamYX -you'll figure out what that is when the movie's out;) (picture missing Hellven & Gary)
Say hi to #TeamYX's one and only ZiJie and Yutaki. I just love how everyone picked to be apart of the film has their own unique character and personality. And these two lads have one of the most comedic personality in their own ways. Everyone will always remember ZiJie's unique and rather disgusting trademark. HAHA. And we will ALWAYS remember Yutaki's signature dance move. "Da-da-da-da-da-da!"
Meet Bunz! He's a really talented guy. Dances, sings, composes, and of course acts really well. He has become my "going home" buddy cause we stay in almost the same part of Singapore. All those trips going home, I've always nagged about how tiring filming is and how I can't take it anymore but he never fails to reply back with a positive comment which kept me staying optimistic too. So thank you Bunzbox!^^
Tosh. Okay, I'll wait for you girls to stop screaming first. HAHAHA. Behind all those endorsements and fame, Tosh is such a nice person. He is a superstar but at the end of the day, he was really down to earth throughout the entire filming process. He never left us out and #TeamYX couldn't have a better role model to look up to. 
Ta-da-da-da!!!! Time for #TeamHY. You all are gonna love these guys.
Watch the movie to find out who they are but they were SO COOL. 
With Veracia. Again, another really talented actress who deliver her lines and play her character super duper well. Being really friendly, it's so easy to like her! We don't really have much scenes together with #TeamHY, just a couple. But whenever we're put together, we're always having fun, creating jokes, playing heads up. etc. Really hilarious memorable moments. HAHA
The sexy girl, Cynthia. She is feisty and may come across as intimidating at first but when I got to know her better, she's such a sweet girl. She's really down to earth too and I am sure that this entire filming process wouldn't be the same without her even though we don't have much time together on set.
Irwin, the guy I'd like to think as a very smart guy. He's always studying and if he isn't on set, its because he's in school. And unfortunately, he thinks that I am extremely vain cause whenever he happens to look in my direction, I am ALWAYS looking at myself in my mirror. HAHA. Oh wells, thats how I'll remember you too Irwin.
Jasper! The amount of spirit and energy he has in him is so admirable. No one can EVER possibly beat his fighting spirit and it's hard not to notice him too. We never spoke much to each other but we've all watched him countless amount of times acting and he's REAL good.
Kelvin. He looks totally different during the wrap dinner from the Kelvin I know. HAHA. I am certain that everyone would agree that his previous look was more him. HAHA. I'm kidding. I feel that Kelvin has a bucket full of stored jokes in his head. And he can always just lash out one whenever everyone's tired and feeling down and instantly cheer everyone up. Thank you for making us laugh all the time. 
Delwyn, the xiao di di. HAHA. He's one of the youngest guys, my age actually, so I've always thought that he'll be a little bit more innocent. But NOOO... Delwyn's always super mischievous with the other #TeamHY guys and it's always a joy to watch what they're up to. I've seen him act on set once and don't underestimate him man... He's really good too.
Hanrey! Another talented guy that sings really well. Actually a lot of them sings extremely well. Whenever I'm on my own humming a song, I'd make sure that no one was around to hear. HAHAHA. Anyway, I'll always remember Hanrey for being that really nice guy that always gets bullied by his teammates. HAHAHA
Ta-da-da-da-da!!!! Introducing to you, #TeamHH!!!
Kee Lin and Sharbil. I never really got to hang out or talk to these guys much but whenever we do meet, I just love how humble these guys are. You know, I just love how the entire cast are such great people to be with. Initially, I was afraid to meet people who would backstab you or bitch about you, but its awesome to know how down to earth and how "human" everyone was.
Aiden! The tiniest guy in the entire cast. HAHA. He's tiptoeing in this picture ah! So don't be deceived. HAHA sorry for blowing your cover Aiden. That's for always disturbing me on set. I will always remember him for being really mischievous as well, not only that, like everyone else, he's super nice and really likable. 
See. This is what they like to do all the time. I was at the toilet with the girls and we came back to my camera filled with these clowns' selfies -.- 
OKAY SCREAM ALL YOU WANT FIRST. WeiLiang is another extremely nice superstar. That's how I'll put it. HAHA. Like Tosh, he doesn't act like a superstar. Instead, he never fails to make us new faces feel comfortable and warm. I remember when he bought extra chicken nuggets during an over night shoot and gave them to us. We were exhausted and hungry and his act of kindness really touched us and that's when I notice how nice he is as a person. 
Maxi. He is super likable and extremely nice too. The reason of the "call me" pose we both did in this picture shall only be explained in the movie so don't forget to look out for it. HAHA. I guess we never really spoke that much cause whenever I see him, I'd would either burst out laughing or I'l try to look away. HAHA. Nothing personal Maxi, its all thanks to your friends and you know that.
Noel! Another really hilarious guy that's always either sleeping, or jumping around creating jokes and pranks on others. He's always laughing at almost anything! hahaha
And of course, this entire journey wouldn't be possible without Director Jack and his lovely wife, Irene. Everyone's always asking me what director is like. Well, he's like a father to all of us cause he is a father after all. My character may not be big in the film, but I've noticed when he tried his best to give us more lines so that we'll have more screen time and we all thought that that was really nice of him. Irene is never really there all the time on set of course. I'd only really met her personally recently and she's such a lovely lady. Though filming was really tiring, it was great working for them!
Ivan, one of our assistant directors. Initially, I was pretty distant from him, only noticing him constantly shouting at us to get in positions etc. But towards the middle of filming, I've grown to think that he's such a nice guy. There was once when I really needed to leave for school and he was the one who helped me get out of set. His job is so tiring that I don't dare to complain about mine whenever he's around.
STEP & BEN!!!! They're behind all those crazy moves you'll see in the movie. They are SO MUCH MORE then our dance choreographers cause we've spent so much time with them and have fostered a pretty strong relationship. I can't imagine preparing for the movie with anyone else leading us cause I believe that no one can do a better job then them <3 <3 <3
Rena! How will I ever forget her. She's our casting director, the one that was there from the beginning of the entire journey. From auditions, to rehearsals and filming. She always tries her best to make things better for us. Which is really tough cause there's like more then 20 of us under her care. It was great seeing her finally more "alive" during the wrap dinner cause trust me, on set, she works like mad. She's always running around and we don't often see her eating at all. So I'm glad that she's better now.
Need to thank Rena's assistants too, Josephine and Joni! It's their job to bring us water whenever we're on set and can't take them ourselves. Their job is tough I swear.. Looking at how they work, I don't think that I can ever do it. Really respect them for it. Including Gavil as well who isn't in the picture.
Not forgetting Christline, another assistant of Rena's. She did the same thing too when Gavil, Joni and Josephine's time were up. I really don't know where these people get their patience from. Its really admirable and I think that I could learn a lot from them about being more patient.
Leslie, one of our crew from the lighting department. We have A LOT of crews on set and its impossible to thank everyone here. But Leslie was one of those that I've made friends with cause of one act of kindness he did that made me noticed him. 

One of the scenes required us to stand in an outdoor setting, everyone had shade but from where I was standing, half of my shoulder was in the sun, thus making one of shoulders tanner then the other. HAHA. When Leslie saw this, he tried to help me by asking me to stand under his shade whenever there's a break in between the scene. And from then on, I would always greet him as a sign of respect. Really nice guy!
Cast and crew hardly really talk to each other. But I've formed a friendship with Richmond from the lighting department as well. He's really nice and humble as well!
And that's it guys!!! Didn't manage to get a group shot with everyone cause I left earlier to go meet my baby butter aka Fai who surprised me with something the moment I met him. Will continue this post tomorrow ;)

Anyway, everyone's asking me when will The Lion Men be out? Well, Part 1 will be out in January 2014 during Chinese New Year. So don't forget to catch it! Saw some footage already and it's breathtaking. But I haven't watched majority of it so I am just as excited!!! hehehehe

Thanks for reading guys! And I'll see y'all tonight at #SomeoneLikeMeSG party? ;)

xoxo

Aurora Top in Royal Blue
Don't you just love this beautiful blue color? I am in love with it and the moment I saw it, I just had to have it. Also because its a halter top! What a perfect combination. Wear it casually with denim high waist shorts and sneakers or throw on a sequin shorts or bandage skirt and you're all ready to party! Super versatile item and that's why I love it.

Aliane Jumpsuit in Black
One of new favorite type of apparels to wear would be jumpsuits. They instantly make you look more sophisticated and tall while keeping you comfortable at all times. That's why I'd pick this item from Vogue Avenue! It's made of really soft chiffon blended material that keeps me really cool yet elegant.

I'd mentioned the last time I did an advert for Mayfair that I think that even though they're such a new startup, they have some awesome stuffs already! And its true cause their new collection has even more awesome apparels! Here are my picks!^^

Sleeveless Collar Up in White
I really adore this sexy versatile top! I love how the only skin showing off are the shoulders where anyone isn't afraid to show off. It's really versatile and super comfy as well! I like how well it looks on it own and no much styling is needed for it. Very happy with this pick!
