[About this blog] Inspired by local soccer player Mike Lim during my rookie reporter days at Singapore Polytechnic, I set up this blog in August 2002. I feel that blogging is a novel platform to document interesting facets of my life and my thoughts on certain issues. [Email blogger] ephraim@singnet.com.sg

[celebrate celebs]
filming of the mission 3 was fun.... throw in all the celebs and seeing them battle it out made it all worthwhile to stay along boon tat street's smoky and teary environment....

under journalist ben's orders (he did the story angle) photog yours truly had to capture the right photo to accompany the article... afterall, a picture paints a thousand words..... and no, ben's article can't reach that amount of words so there you go... he needed me to take a photo!! haha....

witnessed a lot of stuff in one night... patricia mok had to deal with an auntie who made a daring request.... all in all, they obliged with photos and autographs....



meanwhile, you could see that sharon was upset at the sales.... from the upbeat tempo she had at the start of the shoot to a soft and bochup voice towards the end... you could really see the word "tired" plastered on her face....

and when the cameras started rolling.... she spoke in trickles.... tough being a celeb eh?

and guess what? when i introduced myself as an sp reporter to patricia.... she commented that i look a lot like one...

"Look at your face can tell that you are reporter la!", she chuckled... (however ben thinks otherwise and dissed the remark)

and answered my questions with tact...

then, we headed over to the nyp side.... and chatted with sharon and posed for photos with jeff too...



both the celebs on the nyp side were so busy as fans asked for countless photos and autographs...

the best part was to really see the stuff going on... the cameras, the mics and the lights...

poor ben got grilled on why he chose to support the nyp side by the tv camera!! (you know i learnt in advertising that there is no such thing as customer loyalty these days and that customers jump ship at the sign of a new offer)

so we waited earnestly as i chatted to friendly guy dasmond koh....

as soon as the finished the last shoot, we thronged towards the sp stall for our pics.... (it was easy as cheery pat had promised me a group photo earlier on)

what a day... erm, night i mean...
