Jilly had a splash while performing as the bright Starfish in the 61 sold-out shows of the musical, "Rainbow Fish". To her, the stage is definitely more important than backstage. And every single member of the audience matters dearly to her. So she was very pleasantly surprised and blushingly grateful to find these candid reviews online :

"He was concentrating on what is happening on-stage and smiled
occassionally when he spotted the starfish. It seemed to be his
favourite as he kept asking me where the starfish went as it goes
offstage." - House of Ang

"Halfway thru the show she turned to me and said her fav was the starfish"
- Sophie, Ailing & James

"She was fascinated by the colourful sea creatures especially the starfish"
- Clarice, Mommy & Daddy

Such sweet and kind words. It's merely her job which she loves. :-) All blog quotes and links are published here with kind permission from the blog oweners. Thank You all once again!


To celebrate the festive and holiday season, Jilly is honoured to invite you to join her as she sings some jazz and Christmas songs.

You can hear her at One Fullerton from 8pm to 8:45pm on December 19th and 24th. She will be performing with some friends, Dawn on keyboards and Daniel on guitar. The shows are free for the public and it looks set to be a cool enchanted tropical evening along Marina Bay.

Here's a map to One Fullerton, complete with MRT train information (Raffles Place is the nearest stop).

So come by this Friday and/or Christmas eve, and say hi. If you have any requests, feel free to tell her on her guestbook or her email!


Ex-ceptance came and went. And the experience of preparing for it and then performing it for a lovely audience was magical. A big thank you to one and all who came by.

And do let us know what you thought about the show by commenting on the guestbook here: wisdomofmonkeys.weebly.com

The 75 minute show also showcased "Tuesday Afternoon" and her original song, "If I Were Human", which wouldn't be possible without the band who worked with her on the song. They came to the show, and were beautiful audience members as well as friends. So special thanks on Benson on bass, Erik on guitars and Eric on keyboards. You guys truly rock!

Thank you once again and stay tuned to see what other monkey business the team at Wisdom of Monkeys is up to! :-)


Jilly would like to invite you to spend this Saturday afternoon with her and her dear friends from Wisdom of Monkeys productions. For full details please vsisit wisdomofmonkeys.weebly.com
