JEANETTE AW 欧萱 SINGAPORE ACTRESS
SHE’S SWEET, SWEET AS CAN BE.
This review is a belated piece.
My last online article on her was a long way back , some 2 years ago.
That’s right. Time has flown.
So treasure fleeting moments, dear friend.
Happy times may juggle right before you now and vaporize into oblivion next. So hold on to these and savor them dearly.
JEANETTE’s name cropped up again, a couple of months ago and suddenly, it’s yesterday once more.
Dropping by Kuala Lumpur on a work project, my producer friend proposed a peek at the latest Malaysian drama, DESTINY IN HER HANDS”. (断掌的女人).
By the time this article is published online, the 30 part-series would have reached a justifiable conclusion.
“JEANETTE AW is awesome in that series” the female producer enthused.“It’s not the best of series, but it’s truly JEANETTE’s vehicle, she carries the story, and it’s her outstanding role to date.”
But of course dear, she is currently one of Singapore’s hottest actresses, improving with each role.
Throw in adjectives like “dainty” and “petite” to her persona.
I like her endearing smile as it oozes a charming effect.
She’s floored us and is sweet, sweet as can be.
Now isn’t this a line from the 60s song “GINNY (JEANETTE) COME LATELY”? Go check the lyrics.
For a record, JEANETTE AW starred in two of my favorite SINGAPORE dramas, “THE LITTLE NONYA” and “TOGETHER”. Her talents and presence were however, wasted in one awful drama called “BREAKOUT” where the reel casting marred the credibility of the entire series. The only player that stood out in “BREAKOUT” was veteran PAN LING LING. Period.
As far as that series go, diehard supporters literally lost their interest in actor DAI YANG TIAN after watching his insipid performance through no fault of his own. How is this actor faring now, anyway?
“OH, PLEASE DON’T BATTER ME …..”
“MY LIFE IS LIKE A SOAP OPERA …. ” (SOB).
NOW, WHO SAYS IT ISN’T?
“DADDY is BAD. HE’s going to BRUTALIZE us.”
“NOTHING will be in TATTERS. I GONNA FIGHT BACK!”
THE SCREEN BROTHER GRABS HIS BELOVED SISTER AND HOLLERS, “ONE MORE STEP AND I WILL UNHESITATINGLY STAB …”
SCREEN MOTHER and DAUGHTER SMILE for the CAMERA.
“DESTINY IN HER HANDS” DRAMA SERIES.
A lot can be said about the Malaysian series “DESTINY IN HER HANDS”.
JEANETTE plays an unfortunate damsel-in-redress and so-in-distress who’s born with a pair of broken lines on her palms.
To add to her woes, she is condemned by her own mother who unhesitatingly marries her off to a philandering cad when she becomes a pretty young lady to “rid of whatever bad luck” she may bring to her complex family.
Drama, drama …..
All this while, her gambling father and uncaring siblings (except the second brother) stand and watch with glee.
This will shock the ballers out of you, if you truly believe that BLOOD IS THICKER THAN WATER.
