My school got vandalised! The mystery of the note the vandals left me! Part 2

The first thing my Principal asked me was whether I hung around or knew any American kids. I said I saw their faces every week at the American Club (that's where my tap dancing classes were) but I didn't know them personally. For eg, I used to see Michael Fay at the American Club poolside who's vandalism case in Singapore drew global attention and he got caned for it but I didn't actually know the boy. Back then, people were of the opinion, "In Rome, do as the Romans" and I agreed with this. You should always respect other peoples …

My school got vandalised! and the vandals left me a note *shudder*

When I was about 14, I arrived at my school in Singapore in shock! There was a police car in the driveway, a few sections cordened off and a couple of students were crying. Huh?? What the heck was going on? To make matters worse, when I was approaching the school canteen, some students stopped to stare at me. They were pointing their fingers into the air so that I would look up at the main building. I turned around bewildered and froze. Written across the bricks, larger than life was a sign scribbled in dripping red paint (which looked …

If you’re suffering about your weight, don’t suffer alone!

Guys, I've received several emails in response to my Star column from Monday the 20th asking me what book it was that I read which gave me a real insight into the Binge Eating disorder that so many of us have. I've written back individually to as many of you as possible but if I've missed anyone, the book was simply called Binge Breaker by Dr. Peter M Miller. I picked it up when I was modeling in Taiwan. It made things very clear to me. Having lived with so many models, I really saw the horrors of women pushing …

My website just had a facelift!! Yay!

It was a bit painful for me to move from blogspot to wordpress because I was getting so used to blogspot (which I think is really user friendly) but the problem is I had jojostruys.com/v2 AND I had the blogspot url. I wanted it to become ONE. Just makes sense. So I decided to move to wordpress which I hear is more versatile in the long run. The annoying thing was having a frame within a frame (just like my previous site) which made it difficult to scroll up and down. At least that's finally gone now! So it looks more …

This is what I get asked more than anything!

I guess I don't fit into any category of Chinese, Indian or Malay so the most common question I get asked is what race I am or whether I'm mixed. I don't take any offence to it because it comes up all the time but it's not always asked with the right grammar. For eg, I was at the bank and the person serving me asked out of curiousity, "Excuse me miss, what are you?" So I said female and then she says, "no, la what I mean is, you are mixed is it?" I don't feel I suffer any …

I got a rare chance to meet a Living Saint

From my Star Column "A Different Spin" When I was flipping through the Star a few weeks ago, an article written by T Selva caught my attention. It was simply entitled “Sweet Silence” At the time, I was yelling at my 3 dogs to stop barking because someone was at the door and my phone was ringing in the middle of me sending off a twitter message. I remember thinking what a terrible example I was of “sweet silence” I’ve read countless books on how important it is to silence the mind because living in a world surrounded by noise …
