Amazing time in Bali

I caught up with Charlie in Bali a couple of weeks ago for a bit of sun, surf and yummy Indonesian food. He had a 3-day work conference over at Conrad in Nusa Dua and decided to extend his stay so we could spend some quality time together.

We managed to find a good deal on Groupon, and since it’s low season, villa prices were not too expensive.

When I saw the trailer of the Devdan show at the airport, I knew I had to see it! Really enjoyed the show very much. But compared to some shows in Vegas, this one's a bit overpriced.
When I saw the trailer for ‘Devdan’ at the airport, I knew we had to see it. Really enjoyed the show, it tells you a bit about the history of Indonesia, as well as all the different cultural dances. I felt proud to be part Indonesian!

“Devdan – Treasure of the Archipelago” is a modern & contemporary acrobatic and dance performance inspired by the culture of Indonesia. The 90-minute show will take you on a wondrous journey, starting in Bali and going on to Sumatra, Java, Borneo and Papua. This high-energy show is performed on a purpose built stage that is full of special effects including world-class lighting & sound, fire effects, superb aerial acrobatics, different types of smoke and fog and at one point it even rains inside the theater.

Do What You Love, Love What You Do

The first quarter of the year has gone by and now it’s April already! How time flies. Around this time last year, I had just finished filming my first movie ‘The Borneo Incident’. After a long anticipated wait, the film finally made its first premier last Thursday at the ASEAN International Festival in Kuching (Sarawak). I wasn’t able to make it there, nor have I seen the movie myself, but according to Henry Golding, a big crowd attended the event. I hope they all enjoyed a good thriller 😉

That's my scared face right there.

Earlier this year, I was in the Philippines to celebrate Christmas with Charlie’s family in Manila and then New Year’s Eve in Boracay with a bunch of our friends. Then it was back to work, as Brendan Gan and I shot a few more episodes of FourFourTwo Performance. Catch it every Saturday at 3pm on Astro Supersport (channel 811).

Golden Moments In 2012

I hope everyone’s had a great start to the new year. 2013. Wow. We made it. This blog has been running for 5 years now and I’m proud to say that a lot has been accomplished both personally and career-wise. I’m grateful to have such a great support team – you, Charles, my family, friends, people I work with, and all those who follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Your Likes, Comments, Retweets and letters continuously encourage me to pursue my goals and stay committed.

What you talk about, you bring about; and for me, it’s health and fitness. I started my blog because I wanted to share my fitness journey – the struggles, the slip-ups and the rewards. Being healthy and staying fit is a choice I’ve made because it makes me feel empowered and strong. That’s the kind of positive energy I’d like for myself to wake up with everyday and humbly influence on others.

Whatever your goals were in 2012, I hope you’ve achieved it and have set bigger ones this year.

Discipline comes hand in hand with willpower and determination. It’s important re-evaluate your goals every so often to make sure you’re still challenging yourself and taking note of any improvement or deficiency in your performance. There is no room for complacency in terms of goal setting – when you achieve one, it’s time to make another if you hadn’t already. However, nothing great is achieved without enthusiasm! Sometimes you gotta cut lose and, not put too much pressure on yourself so that you’ll enjoy it. It’s just as important to set small, achievable goals especially during the beginning of your fitness journey, as it is to set big ambitious long term goals.

Have a healthy and happy 2013.

With Love, Fay

Chaos Comes To Paradise

It’s Day 2 on Axe Anarchy Island and the Axe team had even more adventurous activities lined up for us. This time, we’re leaving the comfort of our resort and heading out to the jungle!

David and I signed up for zip-lining because we heard it's the longest in Belize...

Britt (Belgium), Fran (Chile and Angie (Colombia)! It's like Miss Universe :P
Britt (Belgium), Fran (Chile and Angie (Colombia) on our way to Bocawina for a zip-lining adventure. Looks like we were just missing our Miss Universe sashes, haha!

8 zip-line routes across half a mile (almost 1km!) through the dense Belizean forest. I was first in line and to be honest, I was a little nervous about making my first jump. But after the first zip-line course, I fell in love with the adrenaline!

I screamed random words like “Arrrribbaaa” and “I’m the king of the world” while zip-lining. I tried to scream at the top of my lungs throughout the entire course but it was way too long and I had to catch my breath a couple of times!

longest zipline in belize
So much fun to be tarzans for the day!

20 of us took turns to zip-line through the pristine canopy of the Mayflower Bocawina National Forest. This took up pretty much the whole day and we returned to the resort just in time for dinner. Then, our first night of partying commenced!

The Axe girls sure knew how to hype up a party. 2 giant Tron dancers also made an appearance and showed off their moves … It was pretty amazing if I should say so myself, considering they were dancing on stilts!
