The long and short about The Super Star



Nerd and I woke up extra early to go to Toa Payoh Central yesterday. We were there for a very important reason.

We were there to become Super Stars.

In preparation for the contest, Nerd and I have been practicing a lot in KTVs. In fact, I have a whole range of Grasshopper song-and-dance routines to unleash on national TV. I also have assurances from the Chinese cooked food auntie that she will cast her sacred votes for me. I reckon with my singing, dancing, and auntie-charming abilities, I can be the complete package. They might even sponsor me for free plastic surgery too.

Then we saw the sibeh long queue, and decided to adjourn to Ya Kun for breakfast instead.

When I reached home, my mum berated me for wasting my time. Fighting back my tears, I tried explaining to her that being a singer has always been a lifelong dream for me, and nothing, absolutely nothing, will stop me from realizing that dream. I also gave her a very passionate rendition of Grasshoppers’ 宝贝对不起, but she wasn’t impressed. Sigh.

But maybe she is right. Maybe I really am not made for Project Superstar. I hate to admit this, but I felt really fugly yesterday, standing in a sea of teenagers trying to look like they just stepped out of a Taiwanese drama serial. The even sadder thing is that I also can’t make it for Campus Superstar, because I’m not schooling, and also not Superband, because I don’t know how to play an instrument.

So I’m crossing my fingers that they will organize this contest one day:

I am so going to be rich and famous one day :)

With Love,

    everyone longs for their fifteen minutes of fame.

    maybe you can propose to mediacorp for "uncle superstar"?

    or be the new face for KFC?

    Since you are William Huang lookalike, they would seriously consider you for superstar lah.

    Don't give up hope yet. As long as there is life..... there is hope. Ask Ah Mei...Ah Doh.... they did not succeed the first time either.

    actually i wonder how "super" can local "superstars" be.

    i mean, it just doesn't have the same glam as "oh this actor from LA, or this actor he from South Africa or London"

    singapore stars "oh this actor he from toa payoh"

    i mean.. u get the idea.

    oooh. grasshoppers. I like the grasshoppers. I secretly sing it at kbox while attempting to shake my bon bon like them (but sadly, I failed terribly).

    Maybe they will have a Grasshopper Superstar. Then both of us can join. muahaha..

    When you become rich and famous you can finally be the first celebrity to honestly say you haven't had premarital sex. :D

    me and my sis used to dance along to grasshopper's 宝贝对不起 when we were six?

    and now we're 17.

    if you're joining uncle superstar, the song still can make it.

    if it's 绝对superstar, er, good luck.

    Weak man. Damn weak... I think it's a whole lot of crap. Well, if you're into the ten weeks of fame. I guess it does differnt things for some.

    There are deserving winners and there are those "wtf are they doing here?" But then that's typical of life.

    You should try you know. Fact has proven that people with zero talent can go a long way with hard work and luck. :P

    Sunflower: Nay, in the end I never join! Saw the very, very long queue and felt the very hot sun, and I decided to have breakfast instead. Heh. And thanks for relaying the msg for Spinnee :)!

    Spinnee: I heard some have been queuing since 3am! Walau. Anyway, there's something seriously wrong with your account! I can't leave comments there too :(!

    Aphrodite: Much as I want my 15 mins of fame, I am more tempted by the second proposition. Can I eat as much KFC as I want? Free :)?

    Oriental Express: Exactly! I might even become President one day :D!

    PJ: That one not Uncle Superstar! That one is Lao Ah Pek Superstar :D!

    Blueapple: Muahahahah :D! Yeah, I think they will win Uncle Superband too :)

    Ollie: Wah, you should see me performing their songs sia. I'm really quite good :D! Nerd is not a very proficient sidekick though, heh ;)

    Le Raine: They will make me the celebrity spokesperson for the Safe Sex = No Sex campaign. Why do I not sound happy at all :(?!?!?

    TLL: Will you promise to vote for me if I join :)?

    Eileen: I tell you ah, Grasshoppers will make a glorious comeback one of these days. They were performing at some charity show last year, and they were still so good :D!

    Green Ogre: "Fact has proven that people with zero talent can go a long way with hard work and luck." I live by that motto wor :D!

    Wow didn't realize so many people in SG so enthusiastic about karaoke. My mum has been pretty crazy about taking part in karaoke competitions so maybe she might have been at this one.

    As for Uncle Superstar, it has a catchy ring to it so I think it might just work =D

    Yanni: Hey, long time no see wor! Haha... eh, you vote for me first, then I decided whether if you'll get a refund :)

    Grace: Oh man, the folks here are crazy about KTV. The outlets keep sprouting everywhere! Ok, I'm exaggerating, the craze have died down somewhat, but there're still a lot of hardcore fans. Heh.
