From Maid Cafe To Movie Star: Fellow Blogger Jae Liew Is An Inspiration!

Last year, I won a 4D3N trip to Hong Kong with fellow blogger Jae Liew aka Charmaine Liew aka Kiyomi Shimizu (yes, she has that many names!), thanks to And fast forward 6 months, and Jae got picked to be the female lead in Michelle Chong’s second movie ‘3 Peas In A Pod’!

Honestly, I never thought the 22-year old Jae would go into acting. She seemed to be very happy at Moe Moe Kyun Maid Cafe <- I’d never heard about them before, till Jae told me briefly what MMK is all about.

She even demonstrated a pose next to a maid cafe ad:

She’s a lot of fun to be around and a master at posing for pictures. Stardom is going to be a piece of cake!

Only after reading another blogger’s blogpost did I realize too, that Jae is a member of a local dance group! Check out this Youtube video:

I’ve read a number of press interviews that Jae did and I was very impressed by her statement that “My resolution this year was to do something out of my comfort zone. I am really glad to be given an opportunity to have this trip and experience of a lifetime captured on film”. Now, don’t you regret not setting some New Year’s resolutions? It’s not too late to get started! 🙂

– 3 Peas In A Pod is slated to hit the big screens later this year. Can’t wait! –
