My Modelling Farewell

Snapshot_001MY MODELLING FAREWELL

Yesterday, once and for all, I finally decided to hang up my modelling career in Second Life. I have been semi-retired for a long time now, always still have one foot inside the door occasionally doing shows, magazine prints and vendor ads for friends. I just cant see myself doing shows anymore and even doing magazine prints and vendor pictures seems like a chore. The fun and excitement is no longer there and for better or worse, the Second Life Fashion Industry is much different now.

As I left my agencies and designer groups one by one, I was filled with bittersweet emotions. I can honestly say that I’ve had the time of my life. Though it was full of UPS and DOWNS, I’ve had very little regrets and I have always been true to myself. I’ve met a lot of wonderful friends from around the world; some I would call family which taught me love, kindness and acceptance. I’ve met enemies as well which taught me to be brave, strong and to stand up for myself and those I love. I have always been shy and quiet in RL but being a model in Second Life taught me confidence, self-respect and perseverance. It also taught me an important lesson: All the awards and supertags, all the VIP titles and Elite memberships, all the exclusive invites to events, etc… absolutely DOES NOT MATTER in the end. I have been a member of many top agencies and designer groups, been honored with many awards and magazine cover features and there was a time when I was winning every contest I entered (or at least top3) but you know what? In 10-20 years time, no one will remember or care. I believe what matters are the lasting friendships we’ve made that transcends into real life. How you treat people matters because they will always remember kindness even in a virtual world. What matters the most are the people I’ve met all over the world.

I want to thank everyone who had supported my SL modelling career and gave me chances and opportunities. Thank you for believing in me and helping me accomplished all my dreams and goals. Thank you to every single one of my modelling and magazine agencies and designer groups that I’ve had the honor and pleasure to be part of. There are so many people to mention but you know who all of you are. With all my heart and sincerity, I can’t thank you enough and I wish you all love and success in both lives.

I will still be in Second Life from time to time but behind the scenes focusing on artistic projects and magazine articles. You need a model? This old fart is retired. LOL :p

Scene 1: The Damsel

The night was hot and humid. The kind of night where everything sticks to your skin, including the constant outpouring of sweat. I sat quietly in my lousy office in a lousy part of a lousy town. Just another down on his luck detective with nothing left to lose. I would take a smoke from my cigar and slowly toy with it, twirling it between my fingers, stopping only as I exhale.

That’s when I saw her…the blond bombshell…pale skin, red lips, deep blue eyes with hair that matched the paleness of her skin. What caught my attention was her hands…dripping and covered in that red sticky fluid I knew so well. As she began to walk, I shot to my feet and ran towards her, thinking the blood was hers. In that moment, she dropped down to her knees, taking me with her. She said to me, her voice cracking and begging, “I’ve been incriminated, Help Me!!!”

Come on, Babe. Why don’t we paint the town?
I’m gonna rouge my knees and roll my stockings down.
Start the car, I know a whoopee spot.
Where the gin is cold but the piano’s hot.
It’s just a noisy hall where there’s a nightly brawl
And All That Jazz!
(Lyrics from CHICAGO)

Yesterday, We celebrated our 20th month Anniversary since we got married. It was a lovely day as we worked on creating an amazing secret garden. The place is just fantastic and so peaceful. Edi and I have been through so much in the past two years. Several friends have even tried to break us apart but they all failed because one thing is clear.. LOVE WILL ALWAYS PREVAIL. If you ever find love in SL or RL, don’t let anything or anyone ruin it.  Love is all that matters. In less than two months, we will be spending time in RL all summer. We can’t wait.

You won’t find him drinking at the tables…
rolling dice and staying out til 3.
You won’t ever find him being unfaithful.
You will find him, you’ll find him next to me.

You won’t find him trying to chase the devil…
for money, fame, for power, out of grief.
You won’t ever find him where the rest go.
You will find him, you’ll find him next to me

Next to me ooooh
Next to me ooooh
Next to me ooooh
You will find him, you’ll find him next to me.

When the money’s spent and all my friends have vanished
and I can’t seem to find no help or love for free.
I know there’s no need for me to panic
cause i’ll find him, i’ll find him next to me.

When the skies are grey and all the doors are closing
and the rising pressure makes it hard to breathe.
Well, all I need is a hand to stop the tears from falling.
I will find him, will find him next to me.

When the end has come and buildings falling down fast.
When we spoilt the land and dried up all the sea.
When everyone has lost their heads around us,
you will find him you’ll find him next to me.

Never in my life have I met someone like him.
I’m blown away by his love for me.
If you ever wonder where it is you’ll find him,
you will find him, you will find him next to me.

Next to me ooooh
Next to me ooooh
Next to me ooooh
You will find him, you’ll find him next to me.
