The heat, the heat, the heat is on fire

Woah, it is HOT! Well it's humid like mad making it feel hot like mad! These last few days have really tested my tolerance for heat while working and sleeping. My trusty fan is definitely working hard and I've had to rely on my Coolcore towel to help keep things cooler at night. Have the say, it's really the old Egyptian method to stay cool at night, but heck it works.

So the last few days have been a real test, weather being crazy, my throat getting sore (with a slight infection) and general overflow of work. I did go to Singapore and have a great comedy show followed by a lot of junk food (explains the sore throat) but man, I don't know if it's just the summer heat or I'm seriously aging, but my recovery time has definitely slowed down. Nope, I'll blame the heat ;)

So, recently I've been working on a whole bunch of new comedy bits, but haven't had a chance to hit the open mics. Somehow my schedule doesn't seem to like open mic nights unfortunately.

But the good thing is, everything is falling into place ahead of my one-man show on 11 Sept at the HK Comedy Festival!
Looking forward to it with nervousness, excitement and well jokes ;)

And speaking of one-man shows, I'm heading down to Kuala Lumpur next month to be part of their comedy festival and for the first time ever, I'm bringing along my other fellow Cantonese-speaking comedians to perform with me! It's going to be epic! So glad to see the Asian comedy scene coming together to make this big!

Oh, look, it's evil-me on a poster about how I'm about to make you laugh.

Here's to another kick ass 10 days ahead!

Alright, so I ticked off another item on my to do list. That's ring announcing inside a cage for an MMA event. For the first time ever, I got to step into an Octagon (many many times) and announce for IMPI Fighting Championship World Series 2 last week. Have to say, it felt great doing this. I really enjoyed going berserk for the last 2 main card fights and after a lot of practice, my control of my voice (even when literally screaming) is way better. I've kind of found my limit and know how to stay away from it before my voice goes into puberty mode and cracks :P

But it's always weird (and a little tough) coming off the high when you realize the night is over. I was so exhausted afterwards, it took me 2 hours to wind down in bed. Well partly because I was so engrossed in watching some videos ahaha.

Anyway, so coming up, a lot of traveling awaits as I head back to Singapore for a gig and then zoom over to Burma for the first time in my life and perform there. Don't know what to expect and I can only hope for the best.

Until then, enjoy!
