My website just had a facelift! It’s finally up!! :)

September 14, 2010

It was a bit painful for me to move from blogspot to wordpress because I was getting so used to blogspot (which I think is really user friendly) but the problem is I had jojostruys.com AND I had the blogspot url. I wanted it to become ONE. Just makes sense. So I decided to move […]

This is what I get asked more than anything!

September 1, 2010

I guess I don’t fit into any category of Chinese, Indian or Malay so the most common question I get asked is what race I am or whether I’m mixed. I don’t take any offence to it because it comes up all the time but it’s not always asked with the right grammar. For eg, […]

I got a rare chance to meet a Living Saint

August 30, 2010

From my Star Column “A Different Spin” When I was flipping through the Star a few weeks ago, an article written by T Selva caught my attention. It was simply entitled “Sweet Silence” At the time, I was yelling at my 3 dogs to stop barking because someone was at the door and my phone […]

These diff hair-dos make me look like a diff person!

August 24, 2010

My hair has always been super straight. I know, I know. I can hear the admonishing voices of my girlfriends saying, “Well, don’t complain. People go through re-bonding just to have straight hair!” The grass is always greener on the other side, isn’t it? Don’t get me wrong. I have no problems having straight hair. In […]

If you’re in a relationship that makes u feel insecure abt how you look…

August 20, 2010

There was a guy I knew who used to hold his girlfriend’s hand with great pride whenever she was dolled up but he wasn’t as eager to hold her hand when she was dressed down with no make-up. She noticed this so she wore make up at all times coz she became insecure about her […]

Met a total a**hole while walking my dogs!

August 19, 2010

It was about 7am, still really dark and all my dogs were leashed. A German Expat with a really tiny dog walked past me on the footpath (ironic really for such an angry personality. His dog was so small it looked like a large hamster!) Anyway, while the dog was strolling past, Pickle suddenly bolted […]

Is 2 months Maternity Leave Enough?

August 9, 2010

Guys, this is what I wrote about in my Star column today. I interviewed various people, including Daphne Iking on maternity leave as well as paternity leave (see video). The article from the Star is enclosed below. Do let me know what your views are?Everyone is different. In my humble opinion, 2 months is not […]

My personal list of pros and cons for shooting a food show

August 2, 2010

I had a fabulous time in Penang shooting alongside a European chef who taught me heaps abt food. Made me realise it was pretty much a science because he studied molecular cooking. Yup, I’m serious. He was just this fountain of knowledge. I’d tell you his name but we’re only half way through production so […]

I LOVE Penang!

July 29, 2010

The last time I was in Penang was to do a charity fashion show so I really didn’t get to explore it. I was in Queensbay mall all day and had to fly back to KL the next day. This time round, I had a chance to interview a traditional medicine expert on his organic […]

My Star Column today on “Real Life Angels”

July 26, 2010

Real-life angels in a selfish world A Different Spin By JO-JO STRUYS When you meet people who think more of others rather than themselves, it’s such a refreshing change and gives hope to humanity that we aren’t all the same. WE live in such a selfish world where everything seems to revolve around “me, me, […]
