Weekend coming up!

Have a look at the time I'm posting!

It's past midnight and I just got home, kicked off my heels, put on some face cream, and pronto... I'm blogging away! I've become addicted to this lovely laptop of mine, and to all my lovely friends waiting out there for my news! And guess what guys - Soon my blog is going to be linked to a foreign site. Hmmm... but will tell you more about it soon!

The weekend is coming up and your VODKA Girl is busy as usual, hopping from one venue to another, and taking a dozen phone calls per hour! Yes, life as a VODKA girl is not easy! As usual my weekend is packed, and the mad rush comes to an end on Sunday. I've got a concert in Gharb and then I will be flown to Axis Discotheque in St Julians - like a real diva - to perform with Swedish disco queen Pertra Marklund - better known as September! So, we're gonna have a supa-dupa party and shake, shake, shake till the early hours!

I'll call it a night, and slip under the sheets now for some well deserved sleep! Remember, I've got an early wake-up call tomorrow.......TOO! :)

Breakfast at Tiffany's

Good morning my dears!

Hope all of you are well and kickin', and ready for a new day! I had the luxury of oversleeping today and it just feels... oh! Good! Good! Good! Yeah... Good! Good! Good!

I've just had a nice, and healthy breakfast , with 3 of my girlfriends! They prepared some really nice things for me, and pampered me like a real star, while they squeezed all the star-gossip out of me! :) Thanks girls! That was so nice! But since all fairytales come to an end, I know I have to gear up for a hectic day pretty soon!

Today, I'm off to catch the ferry and you'll be watching me on Mini Bugz this afternoon (Net TV). After that I'm doing a couple of radio shows, and then I'm popping into the studios to check out a new song which is being written for me. Gerard, would not reveal the title! Aw, he is such a tease! He says I'm going to like the text cause it's all about girl power! I tried to squeeze more information out of Philip, but he is on the teasing-game too! So, I'll just have to wait! Aaaggggggggggggggh!

My hectic TV schedule continues on Friday! You will be able to watch me on the afternoon show "Flimkien" which is aired on TVM.

I'll fill you in on my weekend soon! Now, I just have to doll myself up a little bit and head for the ferry before it is too late!

Have a good day - and a VODKA kiss to you all!

Just to say -----------

I'm back!

I feel a little bit guilty I have been away so long after the video clip launch but I have been snowed down to the max (as usual, right!?). Hope you all had a fantastic Easter and ate to your heart's content! I'm GUILTY of that too! I quit the salads, and indulged in a mouth watering roast, and some delicious sweets! I actually forgot the last time I had a bar of chocolate - so the pleasure was double!

It's Monday , and I know I will have to pay for this! Especially because I have been chatting with my designer - Ernest, and together with Gerard, we have all pooled in some ideas for the VODKA night in Serbia! Ernest will be designing my dress for the performance and hope he will bring me the same luck he brought Ira Losco in 2002! :) I'm very happy with the outcome, and think the puzzle is falling into place brilliantly! Eventually, I'll let you in on a couple of teasers.... :)

I can't not thank you all for showering me with messages and praise for the video clip! I'm so glad you liked it. Thanks Vlad, Andy, Ray, Schlagerboys, Maria, Lena, Priscilla, Paul, Alexey, Thomas, Ben, and a thousand others I can't name one by one cause it would take me too long! I just want you to know that I read your comments, and that I appreciate them very much. I may not have the time to respond to them, but do know that you are making this adventure all the more special for me!

I'm off to catch the ferry now - so "Au revoir!" and talk to you all soon!

Link to VODKA video clip:


I'm just back from the premiere of the video clip for VODKA, and could not resist sharing my emotions and thoughts with you! It was a great launch, with so many people and so much press, but above all, an awesome video clip! It was worth every bruise, worth every minute of sleep lost, and worth standing out there in the cold night until the director pronounced the magic words!

Everybody seemed to be very impressed, and had ear-to-ear smiles, so I was happy to see such a positive outcome! Thanks to everybody who gave his input in this production.... From my hairdresser to my make-up artist to all the extras involved, the Emergency Fire and Rescue Unit, and all the creative minds that brainstormed until everybody was happy! I can't forget the director - Mark Vassallo from Where's Everybody, who are the producers of the video clip, and of course Angie and Olwyn! And to all the camera crew who stood by me day and night and gave their 101 % !!!!! Thank you all - for creating this! (xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx).

I hope I did not forget anybody, and if I did... please forgive me. You know I love you all, and thank you all for everything!

I can't not thank Kris Micallef for creating my website. Now, all of you can go to and have a look! Whether you are a fan, a journalist, or an admirer, now I am one step closer to you! Have a look!

Come on everybody! Morena is ready to Party! Morena is ready to VODKA! But I need you all to do it with me! Let's Goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! xxxxx

V O D K A - The Video!

All is being set for the studio shoot. This is the lair were Svenka Ovva and her henchmen hatch their deadly plans!

Getting ready for the first round of singing!

They never stop checking lights!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The author of the song came over to visit the set today!

It's pizza break! With Diane - my make-up artist - Olwyn, and Angie, who is coordinating the project.

Waking up to a new day and knowing that I can have a break from filming, photoshoots, and interviews is quite something! It is a weird feeling actually! But a decaf and an apricot croissant later, I feel ready to hit my laptop and let you in on my first week of shooting!
Are you ready?
All went well but I'm black and blue! My arms and my legs are sporting big bruises from all the various stunts I've done this week, but I have no regrets! It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience to do so many things at once and I'm not missing out on anything! Of course we had a group or trained stunt-men to do some of the most dangerous things. However, I did insist on doing some myself! I'm a brave girl you know ! :)

The shoots dragged on till the late hours, and we survived on black coffee and pizza! (I suppose I must have nibbled on all kinds of pizza delights one can imagine this week).

Yesterday we had a studio shoot. I must have sang VODKA at least twenty-five times in front of the camera for them to capture various shots of me from various angles. In the VODKA video clip you're going to see me as the secret agent fleeing from one of the world's most dangerous criminal headquarters after I deciphered the code word! But it's not going to be easy for me to get away. Svenka Ovva, who is the mastermind behind an evil plan to control the world's most protected data, has sent her henchmen after me! However, you will also see me belting out the song in various other shots, performing for the camera and for you all out there!

I'm very curious to see the final result! I'm told filming comes to an exhilerating climax on Tuesday. I'm not sure I have the patience to wait for the editing and final cuts, but I suppose I don't have a choice do I?

I remembered to take my camera with me for some snap shots. I thought you would love a sneak preview! :) Hey! I know it's not much, but it's something!
I will allow myself another apricot croissant today, and take some time to answer some of my fan mail which keeps pouring in! I'm getting mail from all parts of Europe including a very sweet one from Kyiv. A young lady who has watched me live during my performance there. I'm getting a lot of nice mail from Poland too!
Thank you so much for sharing this experience with me. You make everything so much more worth it!
A zillion VODKA kisses

Happy Birthday to ....Me!

It's my birthday today but your Vodka Girl is not having a relaxing day in. I had a video shoot early this morning so I had to be at the film studios in time for make-up and hair! After a quick breakfast I was being dolled up by Diane (my make-up artist) and Joseph from Toni & Guy who is my hairdresser! Between some fast food and tons of hairspray the shoot started and nobody even realized it was my birthday! And then, suddenly - The lights dim and everybody starts cheering and singing happy birthday. A nice, mouth-watering birthday cake coverd with oh la la... DELICIOUS chocolate ... appears in front of me out of nowhere! Hurrah! I was not forgotten! I got a little birthday present too! A very cuddly teddy-bear which we called "Mini-Vodka" and it will be my Good Luck charm from now on! I'm going to take "Mini-Vodka" with me to Serbia!!!!

Here are some photos for you to enjoy! And tomorrow, I'm going to take a little break and tell you all about the video clip - with some exclusive photos I took especially for you!

So keep tuned ! xxxx

Cover Girl!

And here is your very own VODKA Girl on the front cover of Circle! We had a great time doing the shoot, and the interview!


Phew! Sorry for not being able to update my blog before today, but I just had to take a long and deserved rest yesterday! Landed on Maltese soil from my Latvian journey in the afternoon, experiencing a slight delay with our connecting flights, but we made it!

Latvia was amazing! And the show was equally amazing peppered with international guests from Azerbaijan, Czech Republic, Lithuania, and myself of course! Met some really nice people, amongst which a Swedish composer who happens to know Gerard. It’s a small, small world! And welcome aboard to the Pirates of the Sea – This Eurovision is going to be a mix of different styles and characters! Pirates from Latvia, a cute Turkey from Ireland, and oh, I’m all excited to see what is coming up next! There are some fantastic singers with some fantastic songs in the running and I’m looking forward to party with them when I get to Serbia. BUT HOLD ON! There will also be more than a dash of V O D K A this year in the Eurovision song contest. Morena is going to make sure of that! Like I always say - Let the party begin!
