Since i’m heading to Chennai, i decided to find out more about the city! 🙂
Did you know that Chennai used to be called Madras or Madarasapatinam (whew! that’s a tongue twister!)? Chennai is the number 6 city in India with the most number of people! The number of people in the city as of 2011 is 4.68million! That’s almost the same as Singapore already! Singapore (as of 2011) has about 5million people. That’s why India is one the countries with the highest population – Chennai only ranks 6th and it’s only one of its many cities!
Chennai is the third most visited city in India after Delhi and Mumbai. I’ve actually stepped foot in Mumbai before – albeit only at the airport for a stopover! Some of my friends have told me that part of Chennai is along the beach and they have BEAUTIFUL beaches there!
Did you know too that Chennai has a snakepark within their National Park and it’s one of the major source of antivenom serum? Although i’m not too iffy about snakes, i’d prefer to visit a zoo (which they have too!) then a snakepark… :p
Can’t wait to be in Chennai! (Flying off tmr, at 920am!! Wheeeeee~)
PS. Chennai is two hours behind SG time, so i’m going to reach there at 11am in the morning although the flight time is almost 6 hours! How cool is that!
Kinetic Gal has been booked to perform for a library launch… And it is in India! That’s right! I will be heading to India really soon (ie. coming Saturday!) for the launch of a library! 🙂
The library that will be launched is a model children’s libraryin the city of Chennai, India. The library is an initiative of Hippocampus Children’s Experience Centre and Max Mueller Bhavan as an open and safe public space for children and youth for learning, and communicating, while focusing on the informational, educational and recreational needs of younger generations.
The launch for the library is on the eve of children’s day – 13th November 2011, so there are going to be activities for the children and Kinetic Gal’s magic show is one of them! 🙂
Chennai is well connected and wifi is widespread so i’m sure i’ll be updating from there soon!

It’s been great fun the last two weeks. Besides being real busy for the M for Magic show as well as birthday parties AND close-up AND show, i’ve also had some exposure in the media. I was on YES 933FM, The New Paper, SAFRA newsportal In2it.com, Rediffusion and was interviewed by OMY.sg too!
The New Paper article!
I’ve been listening to YES933FM for a loooooooong time, so i was really excited to be interviewed on YES933FM!
With DJ Kunhua in studio! (L-R: Kunhua, Samuel, Godwin, Alexander, MESELF!)
We had great fun at the interview!
Alex kept getting picked by Kunhua as the oldest guy!!! :p
