Joanne Peh claims to grow thinner doing the Jetstar's signature 'jump shot'.

Oh, no! Not another mindless claim from Joanne Peh, I hope. Heh. (Remember how she anyhow claimed about how her breasts always swell up by one whole cup size at that time of the month?!)

Currently busy shooting a new drama series, Joanne Peh who rose to fame from her titular role in Little Nonya, recently became the new image ambassador for Jetstar Airlines.

Jetstar Airlines invested a few million dollars in a promotional campaign that would be launched in Asia. Peh was informed by the airlines in June of her image ambassador role for Jetstar.

She said, "I was really surprised to be chosen! My manager had previously mentioned this job to me and I received a last minute confirmation from the company 3 days before we left for the shooting in Hong Kong."

As filming for her new drama Your Hand in Mine is currently underway, under the cooperation of the filming crew, Peh managed to squeeze out six days to film the commercial. They had to rush immediately from one location to another while shooting in Hong Kong and the Bali islands.

The Australian production crew consisted of eight people, their professional attitude and efficiency has garnered the respect of Peh, "They were very professional and clear about the shots they wanted. I can wholly trust them."

"There were many underwater shots taken in Bali and the cameraman had to enter the waters too. Despite the strong crashing waves, he stood firmly and held onto his heavy camera. I had to stand firmly too because I couldn't say it was a shooting problem, I had to do even better."

Peh excitedly continued, "We were in Hong Kong at 7am in the morning shooting in the middle of the road. The cameraman even lied down on the road to shoot some scenic shots! We were lucky there weren't many cars in the early morning!"

Apart from her encounters with the policemen who tried to chase the crew away, the camera crew continued shooting while the PR crew explained things to the police, "The police would not come when we weren't filming but they would start running over once the camera started rolling. It was hilarious, the police eventually told us to film on the sidewalks!"

Doing the Jetstar's signature 'jump shot' at every shooting location was the most strenuous task for Peh. In Bali, she had to do the jump at 31 different onsite locations in one day, "My calves were hurting from the jumps. In Bali, we stayed at a two-storey hotel and it was an arduous task climbing up the steps. When I came back I realized I grew thinner!"

However tiring it was, Peh said, "Watching the end product gives me the biggest sense of satisfaction! The final product looks really good."

Peh says that she has no qualms taking up future ambassador roles for fashion and beauty products, "I have not set any limits for myself. However, I would like to work with different international production crews because I can learn many things from the process."

From Yahoo! News, "Joanne Peh shoots Jetstar commercial in Hong Kong and Bali".

Local actress Joanne Peh has caused a storm in a D-cup after claiming that her breasts always swell up by one whole cup size at that time of the month.

She made the claim in a story last year, but the issue assumed new prominence in a report last week in The New Paper.

The latest newspaper story came after the 26-year-old actress caused a stir with her appearance in a recent episode of the Channel 8 cooking show 3-Plus-1.

She wore a dress with a plunging halter-neck line in the popular show where two local stars prepare three dishes and a soup with a budget of $20.

Online chat forums ran hot about the revealing dress, saying that Peh was showing too much of her assets. Not only that, but she was looking too swell - some posters wondered if nature had been given a helping hand.

She denied in last week's newspaper report that she had breasts implants, claiming that her mammaries usually become bigger when she is having her period due to hormones.

However, doctors whom LifeStyle spoke to said Peh's boob boost claims seemed inflated.

Yes, she could experience bigger cupcakes with hormones added to the mix. But by a whole cup size - the doctors felt that was busting things too much.

Dr Beh Suan Tiong, an obstetrician and gynaecologist at Thomson Medical Centre, said: 'There is usually some fluid retention when a woman has her period due to hormonal changes. This fluid retention will make her breasts bigger.'

But he was adamant when he said: 'Having their breasts increase by a cup size during their period does not happen for most women. The change would not be so drastic. Otherwise, they would need to have two different sets of bras with different cup sizes.'

Anime-like WOLVERINE by Marvel Entertainment and Madhouse


Check out this teaser trailer for Marvel Entertainment and Madhouse's anime-style adaptation of Wolverine! The show is to be released in 2010. The clip looks cool enough, alright. But Wolverine looks too tall & thin for me & his sharp long nails kind of reminds me to those belong to Sabretooth.

Sherwyn Lui's winning video contest of Coke Zero's 'It's Possible'

Sherwyn Lui, a Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts' (NAFA) student, deserves the victory. I like how his video contest of Coke Zero's 'It's Possible' featuring 4 characters in black & white. Check out the screenshots below & you'll understand why his animation style is the winning one!!

One has a lady toiling with a lot of paper works. One shows a man (any thorough audience will be able to notice that the guy is Sherwyn Lui himself. Clue: the mohawk haircut. Heh) terrorized by a bed monster as he sleeps. One features a girl battling 5 girls in a basketball game during the last seconds and she is 2 points behind. And the last one has a man fails to impress a woman with a flower.

And what would they do next? The one who toils in the office, she just bites the bullet and continues to finish all those paper works. The one surprised by the monster by his bed side, attacks the monster with his pillow instead. The one in the basket ball game shoots her three-pointer shot and wins the game. The one who seeks to wins the woman's heart, does so by dumping a truck of flowers on her. Yes, she dies. A truck of flower still is heavy. Ha. No, just kidding.

Well done, Sherwyn Lui! Very WELL done!!
