This Pinay comes with a Powerful Punch..Nicole Scherzinger

Ive adored this woman ever since i caught her strutting around in her low waisted track pants in the 2005 music video for  PCD's 'Dont cha'.

I was concerned about her career going solo so soon, but i guess when your in the peak of girl group extravaganza you must branch out. Her talent is obvious as her body is inspirational, but so are many other female artists. What made me so attractive toward Nic was her ethnic mix of Russian ,Hawaiian and Pinay! When i look at her, i see a eclectic mix of the world singing with that one brilliant voice.

Like every young girl, you have someone to relate to when growing up. Im no little girl now, but i still appreciate and like to support those who are of mixed races . All just trying to make their stamp in this world. Growing up in Australia, being a tad different made people act weird, i learned early on in life that communities tend to box you into categories..what if you didn't fit in? That was my story at a young age. My step father moved work which meant us moving further in country. I started mid highschool awkwardly in a Aussie school of 220 students,  predominately Australian/German kids and five Aboriginal kids. Quite a shock coming from a city school that had a variety of kids from different cultures. It confused me to be taunted often for being the 'Asian', each day id hear mean comments like ' Joeys mum is a mail order bride' or 'Joey ching chong,likes to eat dim sum' but the classic one was one boy running in my class yelling out loud that he wouldn't f*ck a nip ( a cruel slang term for Japanese). Interesting how they thought the Philippines was automatically in China?

This is a piccie of me at 8 years old..hehe

Gotta love my feather comb, i did then :p
Totally sucked during that time, but as i grew up i understood why. It was fear and plain ignorance ,i didnt not look like anyone else. Was not Caucasian, nor black or did i look very Asian , I kept being ousted for being the 'Asian'. I laugh at it now especially when i think those kids have never left that town and i did. Because of that experience, i embrace my mixed-ness.

Lets get back to the knockout Nicole! I was totally blown away by her recent, memorable for life performance at the Hollywood Bowl. Portraying bisexual character of Maureen from the musical Rent. Directed by Mr Awesomeness, Neil Patrick Harris. If only i was in LA! Alas..thank goodness for YouTube.
Nicole does what i can only pretend to do in front of the mirror ( or in front of my boyfriend if mood permits) she seized this part, cheekily conquered it, with much applauded approval all around! I was laughing so much and clapped in front of the computer. Miss Scherzinger effortlessly proved that not only is she a star but can light up the world like a solar tsunami ! Here is where i read it, and watched the video of Nicole singing 'Over the moon'.


The wanna be performer in me is proud the world has talent like hers to wow us! Makes mixed muts like me feel proud to be representing all parts of the earth.

Mabuhay to you Nicole and thank you!:)
