HEALTH QUESTION & ANSWER SESSION

Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life; is this true?

A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it... don't waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up
your heart will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can
extend the life of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer?
Take a nap.


Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?

A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat?
Hay and corn. And what are these? Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable products.


Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?

A: No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine, that means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you get even more of the goodness that way. Beer is also made out of grain. Bottoms up!


Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?

A: Well, if you have a body and you have fat, your ratio is one to
one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.


Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular
exercise program?

A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain...Good!


Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?

A: YOU'RE NOT LISTENING!!!. Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?


Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around
the middle?

A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You
should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.


Q: Is chocolate bad for me?

A: Are you crazy? HELLO ..... Cocoa beans! Another vegetable!!!
It's the best feel-good food around!


Q: Is swimming good for your figure?

A: If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.


Q: Is getting in-shape important for my lifestyle?

A: Hey! 'Round' is a shape!


Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have
had about food and diets.

And remember: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the
intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but
rather to skid in sideways - your favorite beverage in one hand -
chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and
screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Ling,

you just made my day. I was about to go to the gym, but after reading this posting I decided that I am staying home for a well deserved and healthy nap.

Thanks again for your wonderful advice! :D

THE E-MAIL INTERVIEW: CLUB OWNER GWEN KHOO
Who says I'm not man enough?

By Wong Kim Hoh

GWEN Khoo loves the nightlife.

'It's probably in my blood. At 16, I was already painting the town red. I was a regular at Lost Horizon, Chinoiserie and Pebbles Bar,' says the 45-year-old mother of two, referring to several hip watering holes of the 70s and 80s.

It explains why the 'party animal' has chosen to work in the clubbing business.

She cut her teeth in the 1980s working for Music Force, an outfit which supplied DJs and managed the marketing and promotions of some 25 clubs in Singapore.

She went on to make a name for herself as the first female manager of several well-known clubs, including Rumours Disco and the first Boom Boom Room in Bugis Street.

She owns Monkeys Cafe and, together with Singapore's most famous drag queen Kumar, has just opened Gold Dust in Orchard Towers.

A woman managing a nightclub is a bit of an anomaly in Singapore. But she says it's not difficult.

'You just have to show authority and show you're in charge. And, of course, know what you're doing.'

And be a good drinker, adds Khoo, who sheepishly confesses she can easily polish off a bottle of vodka in one sitting.

Being a night owl hasn't affected her marriage to a businessman with whom she has an 11-year-old daughter and a nine-year-old son.

In fact, she says her routine is ideal. 'I come home at 5am, get my kids ready for school, sleep at 8am and then get up at 3pm to spend more time with the kids before going to work at 7pm.

'My husband spends a lot of time in the club and in Monkeys Cafe so things are perfect.'

Although Orchard Towers is known for its many working girls, Khoo says Gold Dust is no honky-tonk.

'Step in and find out. We're actually pretty classy, you know.'

Q : You run a drag club. So which is harder to manage - a group of rowdy macho customers or a band of bitching, spitting divas?

A : First of all, Gold Dust is not a drag club. It is a theatre-bar, giving the spotlight to Singapore's underrated talents. Secondly, the crowd we attract is a manageable one. Even if they have an attitude before they walk in, the atmosphere of Gold Dust is such that they will change and go with the flow when they are inside.

Q : So can, and does, Kumar make you feel less than a woman when he's in his sparkling sequins and killer stilettos?

A : Not at all, I am way ahead in real assets but I do throw him jealous looks now and then for his 22-inch waist and those mile-long tresses.

Q: Do you think drag queens are born? Or do boys become drag queens by design?

A : It all happens in the army - that's where they realise their inner calling.

Q : You have two kids. What if one of them comes up to you one day and says: 'Mummy, when I grow up, I want to be Kumar.'

A : I'll say: 'Well done!' At the very least, I'll have an in-house entertainer. And a new star is born.

Q : Gold Dust apparently has a dress code. What if a char kway teow towkay turns up in his shorts and Pagoda singlet and demands entry by fanning wads of $50 bills?

A : I will give him an extreme makeover and he'll leave Gold Dust a happy man.

The next day, he'll return and he'll be fanning wads of $1,000 bills.

Q : You have spent more than two decades in a business which provides pleasure and entertainment to denizens of the night. What is the most bizarre thing you have seen or experienced?

A : There was one patron who acted like a femme fatale gone berserk. She tried to throw acid on my face because I refused to admit her into the club. Well, thankfully, she failed, and today I can still face the world.

Q : What lessons have you learnt operating a business in what Lonely Planet calls Singapore's 'four floors of whores'?

A : I would like to indulge in a bit of 'Kumarism' here: 'Beauty is only skin deep but talent goes a long way.'

Q : Do you smoke cohiba cigars and can you drink guys under the table? Is that one of the requirements of the job?

A : I only smoke Panatellas, and yes, I beat the guys any time. These are not required of the job but such little feats can go a long way in this industry.

Q : You're an anomaly in the business. You were the first woman GM of a nightclub. If the Government were to give the green light for a strip joint, would you be up to running one?

A : Sure, I'd be the first one to run it and my name will join the names in Singapore's history of entertainment.

Q : If you were to live in a futuristic commune and everyone had a clearly defined role (the pimple popper, for instance, bursts everyone's facial boils) what do you think you would be and why?

A : I would like to be a guardian angel to help people fulfil their dreams and hidden potential.

Agree. If the world is already small, Singapore might even be smaller (behaving 'blonde' here... :mrgreen: )
