'No touching, no grabbing, thank you'

'No touching, no grabbing, thank you'

SINGAPORE - To clubbers, she is a fixture at Moshi Moshi Bollywood at Cuppage Plaza, performing nightly in Bollywood or belly dance-themed productions for the patrons.

Naturally, the costumes are sexy and the moves, suggestive.

But Miss Kate Lim, 26, is aghast at the suggestion she is in the business of titillation.

On the contrary, she says.

What she does is purely entertainment.

"If the club is filled with only men, then I'm not interested in working there," says Miss Lim, who has been dancing at the venue since January.

She began her career as a dancer eight years ago, working in places like members-only club Filter, New Asia Bar at Swissotel The Stamford and the now-defunct China Black.

Miss Lim also models at events and acts occasionally, having recently completed what she calls "a guest spot" on Channel 5 drama series Code Of Law.

With such a resume, Miss Lim will tell you she is, first and foremost, "an entertainer".

"Whatever I do is just for entertainment, anything that is demeaning to women I am not interested in," she continues.

The lines are clearly drawn - she's there to work and no funny stuff, thank you very much.

Not that all of the patrons pay attention to that, she notes.

"At some of the places I dance at, guys hit on me," she says matter-of-factly.

"But any woman who works in a club, they definitely get hit on. That is why I maintain a good relationship with bouncers - I consider them my 'personal insurance' against unwanted attention."
