Flame on! Getting ready for the Youth Olympic Games

The world's first Youth Olympic Games will take place in Singapore in August 2010.

I'm thrilled to be one of the Torchbearers who will carry the YOG Torch with the Youth Olympic Flame in a six-day relay all over Singapore. My turn to run with the Torch in the relay will take place on Sunday 8 August 2010 in the South East District of Singapore.

What does one wear for this once-in-a-lifetime event?

Today I received my Journey of the Youth Olympic Flame (JYOF) uniform. It's specially designed for the Torchbearers. I like how the T-shirt and shorts have been constructed and they're very comfortable to wear.

These are the running shoes that I'll wear on the day of my relay slot. They're more than functional and I'm sure they're flashy enough to go with the occasion!

Poolside party

Last night's party was grand. Jane celebrated her 21st birthday with family and friends in her very large home. Dinner was a sit-down affair by the poolside complete with smartly attired waiters, champagne, hors d'oeuvres, and a large decorative ice sculpture of an owl.

Besides my juggling show, there was a quartet of guitar-strumming musicians, and a DJ to spin music for entertainment.

My performance was mostly done on the wooden poolside deck across from the dining guests. The deck was about 5-feet in depth; and where I stood, the water was just 3-feet away. My past experience in performing juggling in tight spaces was most useful for me to tap on. It's a good thing too that the poolside deck was dry!

Fire Juggling on TV show telecast on Channel 5

Recently I received an invitation to perform some juggling on a TV show, the Channel 5 programme "Entertainment on 5". Well, I was thrilled and said OK!

A big THANK YOU from me to the Mediacorp Channel 5 production team and crew of the show!
