2017 – The year it was.

2017. What can I say. It was a year of trials. So I decided to write it into a song. On the 12 months of 2017, my true love sent to me, December – filmed a webseries November – danced at a Bollywood wedding October – A wedding at Whale beach September – starts of many trips to the Gold Coast August – ticking my bucket list of performing in Edinburgh Fringe July – Running through sunflowers in Spain June – A wedding in a Poland castle May – turning 32 April – climbing Roys Peak before the wedding March – heckled at Adelaide Fringe February – Naked all over Perth Fringe and January – a truth bomb that required a lot of healing....

Camino de Santiago June 28th – July 28th 2017

STOPPED WALKING 822kms 🌻 Camino de Santiago. On June 28th 2017 Chelsea Maddern and I started the long walk south of France and crossed the Spain border. We walked west for 33 days and arrived in Santiago de Compostella on July 28th 2017. It is one of the most enriching, heart breaking and rewarding experiences of my life. I got to share it with my beautiful friend and also with walkers from all parts of the world. 🌻 The Camino has three stages. Stage One Physical for 1.5 weeks. Stage Two is Emotional for 8 days and Stage Three is Spiritual. I hit stage 2 in my second day. I have always lived life to the hardest. I always feel things harder and I cried my heart out. I laughed my heart out and I danced my heart out. I gave myself this time to walk. The cheapest rehab for a human person. Nature is free and beautiful. Follow the yellow arrow and shell. Carry your belongings and walk 822kms. Those moments of freedom are forever me and I can’t wait to experience life even more. To the lifetime friends met! 🌻Jessie Todd KyuHyun Han Jacob Jisub Woo Deborah Gorham Jaya Lakshmi Nicole Gamblin Courtney Brossel Angel Dominguez Sara Núñez Escudero Andrea Maraña Arias Iker Lara Mikel Rosa Annalisa Barana Claire De Cambourg Oliver Plechinger Luigi Iacobelli Todd Rohlsson Reto Solidario Camino De Santiago Julio Marco Quell’Oller Tim...

Review – LaLa Land The musical.

Okay let’s just get this out. I knew I was going to cry. Okay. I knew I was gonna cry before I walked in. To set the atmosphere click on the video below, and keep reading.   Why? Why did I know I was going to cry? Because it touched on three things I am very passionate about.  A struggling performer. Love. Piano. and perhaps Ryan Gosling. Let’s start with the beginning. STRUGGLING ACTOR. The story is set in LA and focuses on two characters, Sebastian (Gosling) and Mia (Stone) who both have dreams that seem impossible. He is a pianist and hardcore Jazz lover, and she, an actor who is awkward and wants to play characters. What really resonated with me was when she exited a horrible casting audition…yes I have been to many, and you walk out and you find 5 other black haired Asian girls going for the same role. It wasn’t about what talent you had, but what you looked like. I rejoiced when I saw Mia exit, and there were 20 red heads. LOVE. Sebastian and Mia meet one night, connected by this beautiful piano piece (above). Two people who have dreams in the Hollywood lights, who fall in love during the summer and navigate the high love to the low love of loneliness, frustration and individual plans that were set together but split apart.   PIANO. As you could tell from the videos above, the soundtrack is heavily influenced by piano. And I could go to sleep and die with piano surrounding me. Something so beautiful, haunting and melodic that piano can take you....

How Far I’ll Go – Disney

This song makes me soooo warm inside!! Disney is always an escape for me. Lift Lift Lift. I’ve been staring at the edge of the water ‘Long as I can remember, never really knowing why I wish I could be the perfect daughter But I come back to the water, no matter how hard I try Every turn I take, every trail I track Every path I make, every road leads back To the place I know, where I cannot go Where I long to be   See the line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me And no one knows, how far it goes If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me One day I’ll know, if I go there’s just no telling how far I’ll go Oh oh oh, oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh Oh oh oh, oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh I know, everybody on this island seems so happy on this island Everything is by design I know, everybody on this island has a role on this island So maybe I can roll with mine I can lead with pride, I can make us strong I’ll be satisfied if I play along But the voice inside sings a different song What is wrong with me? See the light as it shines on the sea? It’s blinding But no one knows, how deep it goes And it seems like it’s calling out to me, so come find me And let me know, what’s beyond that line, will I cross that...

School of John Bolton Graduated

August 8th to December 9th. 4 months counted for. Read it here. 4 months gone. And now I have the memories of these 4 months and how much I learnt. So much. From my fellow classmates to my teacher John Bolton, and of myself. The best 4 months I invested for me. It got me through some emotional things, and I am not sure what will cover it up anymore. The other day while cleaning my room, I thought, “I have done this for myself. I made a choice for myself. I need to make good choices from now on.” Human failure. Here is a video that I made for our class – It explains the feelings and how much we put into the school experience. I will miss you all, but this is not goodbye.     Top 10 moments Walking into school on August 8th and making 17 long life friends. Read it here. Portsea “Retreat” – The memories will stay forever. Meeting my clown Malcolm. Read it here. Creating a Bouffon Vietnamese performance on the spot. “One rice, Two Rice..” “Soldier you want a good time.” “Please save us.” Creating Fear performance from 1-7. Imagine 7 females actors improvising a scene in a restaurant kitchen and every time one person goes to the back room, they come back with a level of fear. “Hey guys, why is there a woman at the reception desk?” “No she doesn’t have blonde hair.” “She just walked through a table.” SCREAMS Waiting for Dotgo. The magic of theatre, when you watch and laugh so much your heart weeps cos you know...
