the arena from stage
ps. the number of mobile platforms (ie that can be elevated)
top at a whopping 7,
compared to the usual 2 i see.



This time round, the stage is

with screen of mammoth proportions

My dress is a tailor-made gorgeousness of
shiny PVC and quietly lethal sequins (which cut my arms and thighs)
plus very bling earrings
plus my secret agent killer thigh-high boots!
(that left my toes numb for the next 3 days...
i thought i would never feel them again)
