Had a blast at my second attending of the monthly Speak Up! event. I got to M1NT with a couple of drinks in me already, from hanging with at Fringe Club with Jackie Chow, Ivy, Spencer, Jackie Wong, David Lau (the most hardcore Irish rapper since House of Pain) and a whole bunch of 48 Hour Project participants. So when I had a couple of more drinks at Speak Up!, it inspired me to actually "Speak Up."
I got up on stage and gave a rendition of the classic Spanish song "Besame Mucho" that I suspect will ensure Kate Sullivan (E.V.E.N.T. founder, Speak Up! host and my acting teacher) will never look at me quite the same way again. ; )
For those interested, here is how Andrea Bocelli performs "Besame Mucho"
In other news, I got to meet Alice Amu in person after seeing her in concert last month. She performed last night as well, so I took some pics on my Blackberry.
I hung out her her and her crew the rest of the night til the wee hours when our late night snack at an outdoor dumpling place was interrupted by an invasion of creepy crawlers. If I hadn't sobered up by then, there's a chance I might have thrown my hat on the ground and finished off the night with a rendition of "La Cucaracha" and a Mexican hat dance.
Also, big ups to JuJu Chan and Jane Wong who are promoting the 1st Fiesta Charity Ambassador Contest.
My vote is going to Alysha Lee. She's the only one with a remotely couture pose. Benny Ninja would definitely not approve of all these other poses. HK is taking the crown for shizzle.
This morning, I'm having a bit of a hard time recovering from Speak Up! last night, with construction crews driving foundation rods across the street from me. Argh! Need... sleep!
