Continue my music. I will always keep working for it and watch the show.

Wayne Wonder, India Arie, Slow Jams, Daniel Beddingfield
Who is your CANADIAN IDOL?
Deborah Cox. She's one of the few R&B females to have international success and also she's from Toronto. I can totally relate to her. I definitely look up to her.
What is your favourite type of music?
Hmmm well to pick one type is hard because I do listen to everything, but I grew up on R&B so I love it. Real soulful tunes.
What is your favourite song?
"Never Find Someone Like You" by Keith Martin, "The Alphabet Song" and "Follow Me", the ultimate house song.
Favourite Male Artist?
Definitely Marc Anthony! His heart is always in his voice. I am so touched with his writing and his emotional live shows. Oh my gosh, I love him!
Favourite Female Artist?
Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera. Christina because she is like a Whitney/Mariah mixed with Janet/Madonna. She has both aspects as a strong singer that can entertain.
Mariah Carey - Day Dream
Who in the music world do you think your style is most like?
A lot of people say Mary J. Blige. We both have the same raspy tone. It's kind of a different soulful sound.
In my spare time I like to...
work out, spend time with my family and friends. My family especially. We are extremely close and one big group.
Winning my first urban competition. I was the only Asian in the competition so everyone was kinda like "Who is this girl?" Winning them over was hard, but it was so much more rewarding.
The Canadian I admire most is...
My parents. They are both immigrants and totally worked hard to raise a family and have successful careers. I admire them so much.
What is your definition of a Canadian Idol?
Hardworking, determined, positive and strong.
Aside from making the top 30, what has been your favourite moment at Canadian Idol so far?
Singing "I'll Be There" with my group. The judges gave us a standing ovation. It totally boosted my confidence for the competition. I needed that.
Who is your most favourite judge and why?
Zack. He pushes you to want to be better. When he says something negative, I take it and try to make myself better from the experience.
Who is your least favourite judge and why?
I'll keep quiet for this question. I love them all (wink, wink).
What advice do you have for other hopefuls?
"Bring IT!!" It's not a matter if you can sing because we all can. It's a matter of whether or not you can make them believe how much you want it. Keep yourself together.
What would people be surprised to learn about you?
Hummm, that I'm normal. I don't know.
Who was your favourite American Idol?
Justin Guarini. He was tht total package! Onstage he had great presence and an awesome voice.
Honey Garlic Chicken Wings. YUMMY!
Favourite hockey team?
Toronto Maple Leafs BABY! I'm from Toronto and so proud of them.
Favourite TV Show?
Oh, definitely Canadian Idol but other than that I love Blind Date and Wedding Story. I know, I am a sap!
The best place in Canada is...
Scarborough. It is so multicultural, I love it!
Poor Jessica David no air time I hope they give her a chance at least on monday.
Yoffy lifts a finger...
I thought she had a good voice and even though I can't recall hearing her before, even as she was singing I got the feeling she was capable of better.
I actually thought she wasn't that bad, she had a nice voice, to me anyways.
