This was just brought to my attention and I do feel a huge sense of indignation after reading this :

The Black Dragon Cometh

Posted by Ruok On May - 25 - 2009

The Ultimatum starts this Wednesday, 27 May, 9pm on TCS 8.

Which means I’ll be appearing as the so-obviously-named-to-be-a-gangster Black Dragon this Wednesday, 27 May, 9pm on TCS 8.

I’m going to look so ugly and so badass, you’ll probably won’t recognise me.

And thank God for that. 😛

Last week I received the cheque for my Black Dragon role.

It was the highest amount I’ve ever received from them for a day’s shoot, and it represented an increment of over 40%. By my rough calculations, this is what they pay the highest part-time grade, “A+”.

My grade since they upgraded me about 2 years ago was “A”, and “A+”, I was told, is the pinnacle.

Of course, I might be wrong and they prolly just up the pay for all the grades this year. But I’m not going to call them and ascertain this. Cuz the last time I confirmed my upgrading, they kinda badgered me into accepting more roles.

And after the almost burning of bridge incident last year, I don’t think I want to go ruffle feathers again.

Anyway, its not like the grading is gonna make a WHOLE lot of difference into the type of role they’ll be giving me. I think I’ll give myself the benefit of the doubt and assume I have, at long last, reach this milestone.

So what’s next ah?

Withdrawal Symptoms

Posted by Ruok On May - 2 - 2009

April 2009 will probably go down as THE month to top, and I’m having withdrawal symptoms already.

Playmates 013

Free alcohol, free food, partying with Playmates, two heck of birthday bashes and fine, fine company. I seriously think it doesn’t get any better than this, although boo tells me my wedding day will top all this.

That is, if I ever,ever get married. 😛

The free alcohol started with the whisky tasting, followed by the generosity of VIP Magazine that plied us with drinks during the launch and after launch party, followed by the Bar Stop’s 5th anniversary, which handed us free flow of house pours for about an hour.


Gee … I just remembered I’ve got another bottle of champagne waiting for me at Wala.

The sad part about April was of course seeing the last of Shirlyn till 9 weeks later. But I’m just glad that her last two gigs coincided with my birthday and I had an awesome time.

So if I had the pleasure of your company during this time, I hope you had a blast as well (thanks Jeff for an awesome montage!). 😀
