Last year was the maiden voyage for the third version of The Amazing Race franchise that I have hosted. Most of you would still recall the first one which was The Amazing Race Asia on Channel AXN. Then, I went to work on The Amazing Race China Rush for SMG Shanghai Media Group. And finally, I really had to step it up last season for The Amazing Race China Celebrity Edition on Shenzhen TV which happened to be all celebrity contestants and ALL in Chinese!
A lot of friends and fans have asked me when is the next race and whether they can sign up, and I really wished I had an answer for you all. At this point, I believe the first two previous versions have been temporarily placed back in the freezer and shelved at the moment. However, I think the newest version from Shenzhen TV could be back for a second season so be sure to come back for the latest updates.
While I am a bit disappointed that most people won’t be able to apply since this is a special “celebrity edition,” I am also excited and curious to see what batch of contestants are ready, willing, and able to sign up for this once-in-a-lifetime amazing adventure around the world. Hopefully, we will all find out soon!
Until then, have a good day and don’t forget to drop back when you’re free! See ya and what did you think of this get up I had to wear at the pit stop in Dubai last season??
Recently, I did a series of images with Under Armour, and it’s nice to be able to integrate work with fitness. Normally, we spend most of our time just sitting around and being pampered (and hassled) with fixing hair, applying makeup (which I am still to this day reluctant to utilise too much), and swapping in and out of different outfits.
So on this day, it was nice to just get into some great and comfortable athletic gear to pop off a few different shots. As I was getting ready, I quickly was reminded the importance of warming up properly, especially now that I am no “spring chicken” anymore. As I see my children today, I stress to them to warm up and stretch properly so there body is ready to tolerate the stress and impact of their various movements and motions. Just like them, I know I used to NEVER EVER spend much (or any time) when it came to stretching and warming up.
Now, I certainly do it much more than before, but I know I can always spend even a bit more time in warming up the muscles and then stretching them out before a hard workout ahead. Normally, I like to jog slowly for about five to ten minutes so that I can get a bit of sweat going. From there, it’s become increasingly critical to stretch out and loosen up my joints and soft connective tissue. In fact, it’s not exactly the muscles that I am concerned with, it’s actually more the cartilage, ligaments, and tendons that I’m realising need the most TLC (Tender Love Care). Only after I’ve stretched for about ten to fifteen minutes do I feel I am ready to crank out a hard workout ahead.
So what are ya waiting for…
…let’s get warmed up and start stretching it out!
For the past few weeks, I’ve been trying to resolve a number of issues with this website. After having it set up over five years ago, it has experienced its fair share of attempted hacks and corruptive consequences. Thanks to the help of Ripplewerkz and Vodien, I hope everything (or at least the vast majority) related to this site is operating smoothly and efficiently again. I will make an effort to update more frequently to share what I’ve got going on with you, and thank you once again for stopping by.
In the meantime, if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions on what you would topic or direction you would like me to discuss, then please do not hesitate to drop me a comment here.
Until we meet again, have a great day and hope to see you again soon!
Dear Friends and Fans…
I apologize for the prolonged radio (and cyber) silence. Recently, my website here was hacked and I’ve been working on getting it back to running smoothly and properly.
Thanks for stopping by and I do hope to get it rocking and rolling again soon!
If you are in Singapore next month, then come join us as we Toast to the Macallan…
Tonight in China at 915 PM is the world premiere of the newest version of The Amazing Race China from Shenzhen Satellite TV. But this one comes with a few twists including all the contestants being Chinese and Hong Kong celebrities along, we’re going all around the world, and a few more surprises. I know a lot of people outside of China can’t watch it so let me try and find the weblink for you on Sohu too since they’re a sponsor.
Hope you do enjoy the race!
Here’s a quick and moody promo for the new 70’s television cop show I’m doing in Singpaore called “Mata Mata 2: A New Era”
This week in 8 Days magazine in Singapore, I enjoyed recounting and reminiscing about one of my first road trips into Mexico with my college friend Rameen. We were young and life was fun…it’s amazing how fast time flies and we forget to to take the time to cherish these special memories so it’s nice to do these interviews where I’m forced to take a look back into the past!
Oh…I couldn’t find a picture (This was before the digital age and photographs were still “developed”) of that actual road trip so the publisher had to use another one with my good friend Derek in the Bay Area.
Yesterday, I had some fun doing an interview with MigMe about five amazing places that I’ve ventured to. Here’s the interview…
So which amazing places would you recommend I go to next??
