It’s all settling into a routine, though each time I plan to get up and take advantage of the free gym I have to go off for a meeting of some sort. A bit frustrating. But then actually getting up to the gym can be also, I have a pass to operate the lift to the hallowed 7th floor, but it only starts working at 9am, so I’ve to keep sweet taking security to let me up.
It was odd, waking up this Monday morning and thinking ‘off to work’, but then remember its Singapore. However, works going well, it’s moving along quicker and sharper, they’re beginning to cotton on to what I’m asking of them. Keep it up.
I’ve also been booked in to do a workshop this Friday, so I am giving my ‘Keeping the actor’s work alive’ workshop, followed by being on the panel for a performance exercise class where students volunteer to present some work for assessment and criticism. Should be interesting but terrifying for them. At college we had presentation every Thursday where we had to present a song and that was bad enough. I will be nice however.
(In the mirror in front of my desk here I’ve just realised if I pull the cord of my spectacles down over my ears I look like Yoda).
Plans are afoot to go up to Malacca in a couple of weekends time, just for a night. It is a town on the east side of Malaysia that used to be the gateway port to the Far East and preceded Singapore which eventually replaced it in size and success. It’s about 4 hours drive north from Singapore. Really looking forward to it, as Matt was saying, once you cross into Malaysia you know you’re in Asia. Matt, Huang Ying and Jim are all going to go.
Right, best do some work. Sort some music.
