Art of Voice at Fly Academy

artofvoice1

So I finished my Art of Voice class at Fly Academy by Paul Carr! It was rather fun but then I always liked courses like these.

You can actually check out what other courses they have at Fly Academy. I took their acting class before too… Heh, heh. In any case, the flyer for the Art of Voice Class says this:

Lesson 1
Getting to really know your voice
Lesson 2
Using your voice to sell, suggest, seduce and satisfy.
Lesson 3
Working with scripts/proposals/speeches
Lesson 4
Performing with your voice: Theatre, Business, News and Advertising

I always wanted to be a Voice Over for an anime or cartoon or whatever and this little course DID actually help. Heh, maybe one day I can be one… If there were actually more animes or cartoons here. It’s a rather short workshop course but VERY effective.

If you don’t want to go through Fly, you can also go through Paul Carr’s Consultancy and pay mucho moolahs for a more personalized one to one coaching or whatever else for your company or organization. This is not just for VOs, it’s for people who want to improve their speech for presentations or work and such too.

I should go ask how much is his cd cause he said a different price from his website, hmmmmmm!

In any case, hur hur. Once I get my book from my friend, I will record something for you guys to hear… Since the book is romance trashy and much amusement will be had!

Bandai’s Edamame toy

I saw the advert on TVmobile in the bus. The ad had subtitles though and I remember it saying something like “I woke up in the morning and saw an edamame next to me. Squeeze edamame, squeeze edamame, edamame squeeze, etc etc”.

So I went all “This is stupid. I need it. ”

AHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Or rather it hit me that this would be a nice birthday gift for my friend because it’s just so ridiculous.

AND SO I BOUGHT IT!

Low Kay Hwa’s I Believe You

lkh front book

I got this book back in 2005 before he started his own “company” book website called Goody Books to sell them. I knew about the book only via the forums at youth.sg and was rather curious about it. The cover for the new editions now are VERY nice indeed since way back then it was less well known and I noticed he self printed and sent out copies to buyers who were interested in it.

DOUBLE OMGOMGOMG!

I found this in my email one second after posting in my (more insane and personal) blog.

I don’t mind people reading that other blog (if you are actually actively searching for who knows what!) but it’s rated MORE insane and with a warning that one shouldn’t ever read it while drinking anything for it might make you laugh insanely or something. Heck, I’m BARELY restraining on this so called “serious” but not really serious blog.

YES!!! YESSSSSSS!!! You guys should know where I’ll be today at 6pm in any case.

Ps. I guess I should upload my other review on another book I have before this becomes a Meg Cabot fan blog or something.

OMGOMGOMGOMGOGMOGMGO!!!!

I WAS DISAPPOINTED WHEN HER TOUR LIST CANCELLED SINGAPORE BUT THEN I GOT THIS EMAIL A SECOND AGO FROM THE TIME OF WRITING THIS POST FROM BORDERS.

meg cabot
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’M A PRINCESS! YES I AM! Heck, the meaning of Sarah IS PRINCESS ANYWAY.

SO IT WAS BORDERS WHO CALLED HER TO SINGAPORE!!!!! I AM SO GOING TO BE THERE.

But first, I want to buy a new book. The UK covers are absolutely pink and I hatess it. Well, at least for Jinx. I’ll get a new book to get that one autographed, the one with the black cover for Jinx, the others suit the pinkness. SORRY ERA! LOOKS LIKE I CAN’T LEND YOU MY BOOKS YEEEET.

OMGOMGOMOGOGMGOMG.

EDIT:

Or maybe I CAN, cause I just need one book autographed… I won’t… I shouldn’t be freakish and ask her to sign my collection…

EDIT2:

STOP ME FROM ASKING HER TO SIGN MY COLLECTION.

EDIT3:

Maybe just two books… Avalon High and Jinx. Yeah.

Now back to your regular scheduled programmes…

Firstly, I wanted to review this on Amazon but stupid thing is that it won’t let me since I haven’t bought anything from Amazon and thus I couldn’t review this book there. Meh. It liiiiies, I’ve bought stuff from Amazon before! Okay, fiiine. I bought it under my friend’s account since we did a bulk order instead… BUT NO MATTER! I shall review this book here for now.

Secondly, I got this book WEEKS ago but had homework and other sorts of events that I had to stop reading it halfway and do them first.

Anywho, I got a package from the writer!
