I'm not sure if I should categorize this entry into a hilarious story or a horror story.

Last 2 weeks, I was invited to take part in one of the documentary movies called "Unnatural" by Channel5, Mediacorp- Singapore local radio and television broadcasting.

 The movie name sounds a little creepy, I know. And when I told some of my friends about the role that I'm gonna play, they laughed out loud.

Ok, never mind, I'm not going to reveal what role is that till the end of this post.

Some photos I took during the shoot!


Makeup time! 

Mediacorp is huge. It took me almost 20 minutes to find the makeup room. The best thing was, my make up took only 10 minutes to be done.

and finish!


Ok, this is me after the makeup with scary looking eyes. Guess what role yet?

It's ok, keep guessing :D

We did the shoot at one of the dormitories somewhere in Jurong East. That was the first time ever I entered a dormitory for foreign workers from many different countries. It's huge and super crowded. Everyone was looking at me as if I was an alien from the Mars just dropped down the Earth. 

This is the room where we had a shoot. How many floors are there?


6th floor without a lift!!!! And I wore my 5 inches heels claiming up all the way to the top with my costume. 


This is what I wore for the scene. Ok, I bet you probably could guess what role I was playing.

"I was playing a beautiful Thai ghost" 

I know all ghosts are unidentified whether she is ugly or pretty but that's what the director told me, "You played a very beautiful ghost role". 


So here is a beautiful ghost and a girl in the crew.


"Woooooo! Gimme back my life" 


That's my victim: a Thai worker


and the ghost haunts him every night after his sleep. At the end, I killed him. I mean, the ghost killed him not me. 

I didn't know that this story is based on the real life story in Singapore, a group of foreign workers lived together, worked together. None of them had any sickness or illness symptoms besides homesick but somehow, some of them died mysteriously. 

Wanna catch the entire movie? Please follow the Channel5 program, I'm not sure exactly when though. Probably, it will take little longer for the movie to be broadcasted. So if you happen to watch a movie "Unnatural" and see the ghost. You know, it is the beautiful ghost ME.
