A few weeks ago, I was asked if I wanted to film for the last episode of a dating show series – SINguy & SINgirl. The series revolves around a few different situations, ranging from talk shows to blind dates.
Someone must have got wind that I was single (must be all my whining)…
Blind dates were set for the show’s last 2 episodes – oh sweet dreams or beautiful nightmares! The episode filmed before mine was to focus on the male dating role, and the episode I filmed (the series’ last episode) for was to focus on the female dating role. Lucky number last!
Dating consultant Violet Lim, co-founder of Lunch Actually (one of Singapore’s premier dating services) set up a date for me with a local MC from the entertainment industry, Jonathan Lee. He was kind of cute… I feel sorry for him.
Filming started with them knocking on the figurative door at my house, followed by my blind lunch date at quirky boutique hotel Klapsons @ Tanjong Pagar.
I’ll let the pictures tell you my sad love story.
I never had a film crew in my house before… or in my bedroom. It felt kind of weird!
Moving on to the beautiful Klapsons hotel for my “free lunch”. Oh dear what am I getting myself into!
Somewhere between getting mic-ed up and the start of filming, I decided to “be myself”… that means taking out my camera before my blind date even finished his sentences, much less his food.
Yes… I’m THAT single that the media now thinks I need professional help.
Episode will first be released online somewhere near end February. If you promise not to laugh at me I will update again! 🙂
