It's a WRAP!!! Yay!

I woke up today after 7 straight days of filming with a panic attack. It was after 10am. It took a while for it to sink in that I didn't have to be anywhere, look good or rush to set. I'm done filming my latest project, called PROJECT ALPHA, a show about Malaysia's top bloggers.

My schedule has been so intense. I've been filming for 12 to 17 hours a day but tiring as it is, I've really enjoyed interviewing these bloggers. They're all so different and we've been shooting on location from their homes, bedrooms to hotels, gyms, you name it. I can't wait to see the finished product.

Though we're done filming, the next phase of production is about to begin. "Post production" is gonna take HOURS and hours everyday but looking at the footage of all the bloggers ought to be fun, including all the bloopers hehe but I hate watching myself in editing. Makes me wince. Too close for comfort so I have opted to not be heavily involved in the editing process. I'll leave that to the director! Cool!

It feels sooo good not needing to be anywhere or do anything today, yay! I'm having a glorious foot massage right now :) Feels truly wonderful to kick back and relax after this manic filming period which was very short (only 8 days)but insanely intense.

I can't rest for too long but whatever stolen moments one gets becomes golden when you're caught up in such a hectic schedule.

Winding down the pace now and sinking back into my massage chair zzz

Sorry I couldn't make it to Euphoria last night. I told SixthSeal to pass on the message. Was great meeting you. Listen, could you email me with a number that I can contact you on? There are some things I'd like to ask you (including your dad's name! I forgot. STML [Short Term Memory Loss] disease).. Thanks!

Great getting to know you and working with you. Let me know when it's out so I can check it out too!

in front of black hole? Where's that?

Jojo Struys said...

yup Tekkaus, Project Alpha's first ep goes out on Sept 18th on as well as :)

Husen said...

that would be the bar opposite hartamas square. you walked right pass my car, in a greenish dress, and as usual looking really nice. but I wouldn't recommend blackhole, there is a more creative one called blackboard, no nonsense hired asian women playing stupid dice games with patrons, just a decent place with the french-american chef/owner michel, and nice bartenders to talk to. on top of that the guinness draft only comes for rm22 per pint, could have loads of those..

Is your dad Leslie Struys?

About Cindy Teh. No, she was not referring to me but of course I was there on set. I think Cindy misunderstood what the director was saying. On any set, you require patience for camera set ups etc. Just normal and the Brazilian wax thing wasn't meant to be for her la (n who's gonna film something like that anyway in Malaysia or anywhere else?) It was just a free gift from the spa so if she doesn't want it, heck, I'll take it!Never had a Brazilian wax myself hehe ;)

Husen said...

LOL. I can't imagine words like these "Sibeh CM", "KNN CCB" coming from Cindy. Wow I miss Penang.

hey anonymous, what's your father's name?
