I don't why I'm always let down when books about porn stars turn out to be poorly-written, hack-level rubbish. Can't these ladies (and a handful of men) afford better ghost writers? Gerrie Lim makes constant, repetitious mention of the fact that he and Chong are best buddies (and that they are the only Singaporeans in 'the industry'.) Great info, but it only needed to be stated once. Chong's story should be a fascinating read but Lim just recycles the same paragraphs again and again, sometimes ...more

Then they went back ...more

i first heard of annabel chong sometime last year. i was amazed.. mostly because someone like her actually came from conservative singapore. like, wow.
the book gave me a new perspective on the adult film industry and sheds some light on the "real" annabelle chong, grace quek, who is kind of a heroine to me.. someone who isn't afraid to defy what's "accepted" and does what she wants without giving much of a f***. i can only hope to be half as amazing as her.

this book, on the other hand, can be wr
