A friend who attended my grooming workshop today to help me take some photos remarked that he was amazed I could talk for four hours non-stop. 

Well, I firmly believe that if you truly enjoy what you do, it's not a job nor chore at all. It's working and yet having fun while doing so. I can share and talk on and on because these are subjects and issues close to my heart - something which excites me each time I start. And really, four hours is not really that long. For the record, I can speak for eight hours during my full-day workshops :)

Welcome to the next installment of my signature programme - The Visual Art of Looking Good. Today, I'm at the all new Senja-Cashew Community Club (CC), one of the CCs under the People's Association. Being at a brand new CC really does wonders to one's spirit as even the chairs are ergonomically designed to cater to one's comfort. Needless to say, I'm naturally all hyped up to do my utmost best in training the staff of the community club.

As this was a mixed group, the men and ladies naturally gravitated towards their own gender group in the seating arrangement as all were aware that they had to take their own body measurements. Ladies, being naturally shy and protective of their body measurements, would definitely not want their male colleagues to know. And of course, I'm very sure the guys too would want to have some secrets of their own too. Yet through all the body measurements, laughter after laughter rang out from different corners of the room. Perhaps some measurements turned out better than expected?

Never content to just play second fiddle to the ladies although they were only a threesome, the guys with their antics ensured the entire workshop never had a dull moment. Clothes swap day amongst them coming up soon? I'm very sure that will happen as they were already bantering and reserving the clothes of each other whose colours, unfortunately, were not his season colour. It certainly didn't come as any surprise that all three were dramatics.

And more on colour analysis, perhaps the ladies now understood why I had told them before-hand to turn up sans makeup. Wearing makeup and attempting to figure out your best colours is akin to finding a needle in the haystack. It's difficult and not accurate!

Serious at times and jovial other times, the staff were an awesome fun lot to train. Thanks for the memories :)

Widely regarded as the main career draw of the year, ‘Career 2011: Navigating Your Future’ aims to provide an all encompassing platform for educational institutions and employers to showcase higher education options, job openings, career opportunities and training programmes.

A yearly affair for more than two decades, what’s new this year is the inclusion of a 21st Century Skills Pavilion. The 21st Century Skills Pavilion at Career 2011 is aimed at equipping not only job seekers, but also current employees with the necessary skills to help them forge ahead in their respective careers through a series of talks and exhibitions carefully pre-selected to help everyone up their image quotient.

I’m very honoured to be one of the invited speakers the career exhibition held at the Suntec City Convention Centre from 3 – 6 March 2011. Slated to speak on 5 March 2011 at 4.15pm, I will be sharing with walk-in visitors on the importance of maintaining good health.

Health and fitness may seem to be a misfit in a career exhibition but like the organisers, I'm also convinced that without a healthy body, it's pointless to talk about building a long-standing career. All the monies in the world cannot buy good health and that's why it's important to do something for your own health. More importantly, keeping fit does have its benefits. These include looking younger, more energetic, better body posture and increased confidence.

Besides sharing with participants how to check the state of their health, I also demonstrated how to do chair dips. Chair dips are one of the best exercises to combat those bye-bye arms and blast away the fats stored there. After my demonstration, four participants gamely stepped up to give it a try, doing it at their own comfortable pace :)

And now that everyone is equipped with some very useful tips on how to get one's health in tip-top condition, it's off to explore the exhibition and find your dream job. Good luck!
