I've just plugged in my laptop and started typing. It's so late!!!
I'm late because of one simple reason. I've just come back from the football stadium where Malta played Greece in a Euro 2008 Qualifier match. I was invited by the national football federation to perform 'Vertigo' in the half time recess. The stadium was packed. I sang to approximately 8,000 Maltese fans and 300 Greeks. Both sections seemed to enjoy it.
I must admit I got hooked. Instead of spending 15 minutes at the stadium I ended up watching the whole match. I'm hoarse from cheering our local footballers! Malta lost by one goal. Sheer bad luck. Our national football team is getting better. Better than many thought it would ever would. I'm happy for them. Even though they lost.
You would think that prior to the stadium I spent a busy day going here and there. Well, you're wrong. Very wrong.
I spent the whole day at the studio of one of Malta's finest photographers. Her name is Alexandra Pace. Alexandra took all the photos of my first photo session. Around two weeks ago we decided to organise another photoshoot. Before leaving her studio at around 5pm I just passed a hopeful statement: "Bye Alex...if you manage to get some work done by tonight, I would really appreciate it". I really asked her for the sake of having asked her. I didn't really expect she would have anything ready for me.
I was mistaken.
Shortly after 8:30pm I received a call on my cell phone: "Hi Ol, it's Alexandra. I have two photos ready." I rushed to her house in Attard and picked up the CD.
These are the first two photos from my second photoshoot this year. I've decided to publish them exclusively on this blog. The rest of the photos will be available during the weekend.
Alexandra amazes me each time. She always manages to make me look more beautiful than I actually am!
Mirror, mirror on the wall, if I ever were to meet you, I only hope Alexandra is by my side to make me look more beautiful for your sake! :)
Speak to you again tomorrow...goodnight...I'm almost dozing off by now!
