All that glitters is not gold, ergo not all that is round and bright is the moon 🌝

Happy Mid Autumn Festival y’all!
finding a quiet stretch of beach during the September holidays be like yaaas 🌴
忙里偷闲; sipping on my favourite iced coffee on the island. It’s so thoughtful that they serve it with reusable metal straws too ♻️
could really do with some of that cool weather right now
It was lovely to perform some of my favourite Singapore songs (Singapura Sunny Island, The Little Things, Semoga Bahagia) for the Community Chest @comchestsg Bicentennial Charity Dinner this evening 💛

Throwback to my virgin @riotdragshow experience! ‘Twas a fabulous frolic! Here I am pictured with my drag mother @beccadbus , serving off-duty-jazz-singer-cum-tv-host-cum-musical-theatre-actress realness, and safari-hunter-glamazon chic respectively.

UTown didn’t exist back when I was still studying at @nus_singapore so it was pretty neat to have taken a spin around the premises, accompanied by NUS President Prof. Tan Eng Chye.
.
It was rather poignant too that even though my pianist and bandleader @chokkerong and I never crossed paths while in NUS (he’s a few years younger than I am), he is now the music director for NUS Jazz @nusjazzband at @nuscfa - the very community where I first immersed myself in jazz music!

You know how “Home” might not be Singapore’s national anthem, but most of us know it intimately, and the very act of singing it is an unequivocal sign of unity and belonging? We have a song like that too for @raffles_girls_school - it’s called “Dedication” - and I had the incredible experience of leading RGS girls across generations in a rousing sing-along this afternoon, for our 140th Homecoming and farewell to the Anderson Rd Campus. Then, the afternoon culminated in one of my personal role models and fellow alumnus Kit Chan leading us in singing “Home”. What a privilege it is for us to be daughters of a better age, and daughters of Singapore. Filiae Melioris Aevi.

It would be tragic, to bask in the beauty of a setting sun, were it not for the assurance that our star will rise again tomorrow.
Distracted myself from performance anxiety by taking some fun shots before going on stage with the @singaporesymphony tonight.
.
This is my first time as a soloist with a full orchestra and choir, and in the company of so many consummate classical musicians on stage, the pressure was palpable - I didn’t want to be the one thing that marred their pristine performance! I am thankful as always for the encouragement and practical support of my team, as well as the graciousness of our hosts. Whenever I felt the nerves about to take hold of me on stage, I closed my eyes and took in everything that I was hearing, reminding myself how blessed I was to be bathed in this glorious sound. I also found that returning to the lyrical intentions also helped to anchor me - for whatever vocal imperfections I might have, at least I could be sure I sang with intention, and sincerity.
.
This has been a pretty intense week - just a day before I was doing a dance number in a cabaret-style performance at RWS, and the next day I am singing with the national orchestra. How lucky can one gal be, to get to try it all!
