A slice of silence.

An unfailing ability to fall in love with all the assholes. Who is nothing without music, dance, words, a voice, and the ability to be swallowed in a crowd and never be found.

Shine, a teen musical :)

Shine has seriously been one of the greatest, single handedly most challenging, disgustingly beautiful projects I've ever taken on. :) You guys are so bad, so unhelpful, so hard to control, so naughty and it's so impossible to force you guys to shut up. But, I don't think I really minded that much after all.

You've been there for me, to push me to study (which I have no excuse not to now, be happy.), to cheer me up even when you don't know I'm feeling down, to make me laugh, to increase the number of photos I have on Facebook (LUUULZ), to hold me, to love me when I needed it most.

Do you know how long it took for everyone to settle down and take this damn picture hahaha.
In no specific order.


Alethea Lim

One of those people, who can't seem to give enough compliments, to a point where I have absolutely nothing to say except thank you. You are so enthusiastic it's fun to watch haha. I'm glad you like being in the musical, it's been awesome, isn't it :)

Jocelyn Ho

Who's shoes, I seriously love. (YOU OWE ME IF I GET STRAIGHT A's FOR SPM.) I'm greeted with a 'Have you study or not?' every single time we meet. Haha. But, it's okay. You push me, academically, and I drive you insane. B)

Sarah Razif

I never seem to notice you, but you do make yourself known. Hee. Mr Zac can do a really good impression of you. It's amazing how you can never run out of nice things to say to everyone. PS: You're so bold, and you act better than me hahaha.

Yasmin Fareed

YOUR SURNAME IS FAREED? Lol. I remember my mum telling me that she wanted to call me Yasmin. I was shy like you when I was in Form 1, just, don't turn into me okay :D Hee. Your parents wouldn't really like the fact that you keep failing your exams -.- :D

Johann Razali

So, we're the kind of people who hate each other, but at the same time, don't really hate each other. I guess you could say that being in the musical has helped me understand who you are, and why you are a certain way. Problems and shit aside, thank you for tahaning my craziness, and my insanity :)))

Huan Sheng

YAY. How's your thumb? Anyway, you're too tall. Which is awesome, then you can date tall girls teehee. Johann, me and Mr Zac like you lots cause you're so 'kuai zhai'. Haha. Thank you, for being a teacher/choreographers pet B) HEE.

Zheng Xi

Boy with the British accent ;) Wasn't the car ride so fun! God, haha. I like your parents. And I think of a lot of the cast, you are one of those people I would miss. You, and your long face. (Which reminds me, Tiffany always calls you Horse hahaha.) You're so cute! Don't change :B

Chloe Lee

Haha. I didn't know you were Keefe's sister for a really long time. You, are definitely not a Plastic in real life :p You're too nice. Btw, awesome nails FTW!


Bryan Thor

Who knew one day I would be teaching you how to dance, huh. Haha. You're very adorable when you dance! ;D Join the musical again! Then we can continue our quest, for you to becoming a super sexy dancers B)


Sara Nadyana

For some odd reason, I really really like you. (LESBO MOMENT).And you look really good on stage, btw. Oh yeah, and it was funny cause during Diamonds you hit everyone with your bags when you were trying to go on stage hahhaha. Love you, I'll miss you ;(

Anisya Kaur

Omg, remember our boy talk in the car on my iTouch? IT'S STILL THERE. Haha. Oh my god, I'm going to miss you so much, I swear! You're so cute lah ;( And yes, I'll keep my promise to you. When I can drive, we can go out together, and I can give you crappy advice on boys, and PMR hahahahaha. ;D LOVE YOU.


You're just one of those type of people who never fail to make me smile, whom I would wanna give hugs to all the time. You're too cute to be human. Don't change, ever, okay? :) I wanna see you, 10 years down the road with your wife and kids haha. And see how you treat them. Thank you, for cheering me up all the time, HanseM. ;D

Sue Ling

Steal my (ex)husband during the musical huh >:( Haha. I love you! And your legs are too flexible, please chop them off and give them to me. I want them. I'll miss you so much lah :( Join the musical next year kay!

Chien Teng

The moment my mum saw you, she was like 'This girl is definitely those kind of girls that cannot sit down, and is very opinionated and straightforward.' haha. good judge of character, kan. ;)) I love the way you help kids from the PTPI cause of your heart, and not to add to your testimonial. Gah. I'll miss you.

Tiffany Khoo

UGH. Never ending discipline. 'Pull up your socks.' 'Wipe off your nail polish.' 'Tie up your hair.' 'Why are you wearing those shoes?' And the most recent, 'GO STUDY.' Haha. My mum liked you the moment she saw you on stage. You'll grow up to be a great mum ;)) Love youuu.

Sonia Seah

Omg, remember we were sitting in your car, and we were at McDonalds, and you called the lady 'Deaf bitch'. Rofl, that was so funny. You're so rude lah, I effing love you ;DD Hahaha.

Shanni Chew

I still CANNOT believe you're leaving without a farewell party. Lazy, lazy. You're going to regret, man ;)) Haha. Have fun in Aussie, and study, don't just go to Woo all the time, kay. That stick. Good luck! Love you, and I'm gonna miss you so much ;((

Mariam Azmi

I loved talking to you and Aliesha about boyfriends haha. We need to find a time to settle down and talk about how he asked you to prom ;) Btw, you looked AMAZING on stage, every single time you came out ;))

Lisa Phoon

Why is it that we don't have one normal picture together from Shine haha. Omg, you never fail to make me laugh with your sad make up skills ;D Haha. And your study study study studyness. I'll miss you so much lah, for some odd reason. Love you ;((

Shea Chew

Do well in Aussie kay? And, STUDY YOU BITCH hahaha. When you come back we'll choreo lots together kay ;((( LOVE YOUUU.


Sarah Nadirah

Tan Ian

Haha. The man who always has nice things to say about everyone. You don't look like a guy with a lot of sense of humor, but GOD. Hahaha. Then again, you don't look like you can act, dance, and sing, but look at you! You're lead role, man. I'm so proud of you ;))

Ee Gene

You're such a quiet little boy. I thought you and your brother were twins you know! Same glasses, same hair haha. Your acting, is truly truly amazing. I don't think anyone could've played same better than you. :) Don't change for anyone, okay!! And please, PLEASE, join the musical next year :D


I really love your role as Apple, and you seriously have apple cheeks haha. I've loved cheering with you, and using your OPI, and getting in trouble with all the prefects from school because of it ;)) LOVE YOU.

Aliesha Nadira

THANK YOU FOR THE FLOWERS. You know, by the end of the night, I was thinking, this is it, you know, all my hard work and everything, and I get congratulations from people whom aren't related to the project. But it's words from Mr Zac, and the flowers from you that really feel made the entire production worth it. Thank you so much :)) I love you, and I'll miss you ;(

Collin Looh

Haha. You annoying little boy. You drop so many weird comments on photos, don't you? Who knew that you would be a lead in Shine haha. Thank you, for being funny and unfunny to the point of funnyness :D

Yu Kong

My mugging mugger buddy. I'm glad I taught you, Bryan Thor and Ian how to dance. It makes me feel, like I've accomplished something haha. You are such a nice person :) And thank you for joining the musical, because I've gotten to know a person I didn't think I would, before I left high school :D

Joanna Tan

You, and your sillyness. Hahaa. Why did you quit tap? You silly girl ;( You. Sing. Amazingly. I loved DROMP the best, I swear to god. Cause of the dancing, and cause of you and Zheng Xi, and cause of your singing. You are godlike :D Heeee.

Pfffffffft. Ex husband, dumped me for a boy. Anyway, you've always been there for me when I needed you. I hate you, I love you. Thank you :))


Is that how you spell your name? DUDE. You completely change on stage! It's like, you're a different person altogether! GOD. You are, amazing. Now, do that during rehearsels so we won't ever doubt your talents ever again, okay :D

So, I think all of you deserve at least a blog post from me. :)


You do look amazing in black, I must say. We are of the same type ;)) Go on being smart, haha, don't end up like me ;D LOVE YOU.


Tian Foung

YOU ARE TOO CUTE. I don't know why. Your dancing, is so CUTE. UGH. Haha, I should learn how to dance like you hahahahaha. :D

The Band

Without you guys, it would be called Shine. Hee, cause you guys are the Musical part? Get it? HEH. HEH HEH. Uh, yeah. You guys are so pro! Props to Mr Andrew, and Mr Anderson (is that how I spell your name?) for making you guys so amazing haha. My mum was seriously impressed with the band, thought you guys were pros ;)) So to Addin and Tristan (CD seller hair), Ali the photobomber, Ee Vein, Duncan, Melvin, and everyone else in the band, congratulations, and thank you :)

And most of all to

Mr Zac

Without you, I wouldn't have the opportunity to watch ma babies grow into the people they are, and the characters they portray in the musical. Thank you, so so so very much. :)


I've not been in the best of moods lately. But after doing this post I find myself smiling at the bits and pieces of memories that I share with each and every one of you. :)

I know, I haven't been the best kind of choreographer, or the best kind of leader out there (which is one of the reasons why I didn't get nominated for anything ;D), but you managed to stick by me, and that's all I could ever ask.

Thank you so much, from the bottom of this insane heart.
