Despite having 4 days break, I was extremelyyyyy busy everyday especially the day right before NDP! 3/5 of the day dedicated to blogging 3 overdue entries, and the remaining 2/5 was spent shopping for ingredients + making Clarence’s card!
Was intending to bake/make something for the lovely ones but seriously didn’t have time as I need to wake up early the next day! D:
Rushed to sleep to get ready for another race the next day~
Screwed up body clock woke me up at weird hours again and I couldn’t fall back to sleep! So I decided to just wake up and start making Krispie treat for the girls! (:
Quite a failed one because my gingerbread man turned out damn ugly!!! –CRY!–
Like 1 of the ugliest gingerbread man ever! But since I spent the whole morning making, I decided to just give it to them x.x
Rushed to prepare to meet the Lyn and Tiff in town for
cake-making cake-decorating session! Super kan chiong spider and I cabbed down eventually =/
Although his birthday is 3 days later, we girls decided to take this last opportunity to celebrate for him since he has been doting on us so much! Hehe.
Cabbed down because we were already late, but luckily everyone was still eating, putting on makeup and etc~ I was “watching the water” while the girls prepared the cake; panic attack because the birthday
boy man kept walking around!
He spotted our cake eventually and tried to run away by pretending to walk past!!! How evil! Luckily I pulled him back…LOL.
He said I totally tarnished his reputation because in his yearsssss of choreographer/trainer, no one has ever dared to really talk back to him, let alone whacking him!
Everyone was taking the opportunity to take lots of photos with each other, and of course I have to take with this important person who has always been taking care of my phone and huge-ass Polaroid camera so that I can dance in peace! Hehe.
As usual, rushed to the washroom to get our hair done and I helped Lyn with hers as well! Hehe. Can’t really see the cute spikes in the photos, but everyone said it’s nice! xD
Luckily I had done my makeup in the bus on the way, because the aunties were knocking impatiently on our door while we were still tying our hair! :S
As usual, the 6 minutes plus item felt like it was over within a minute x.x
But I think we had put up a great performance (even though the camera angles didn’t do justice to our formations and etc!)~
7 years ago I missed out the fun because I was sick and I kinda collapsed while singing the national anthem, but I wasn’t gonna let that happen again!
Took every opportunity to take pictures with different people as well!
With the 2 noisy ones but I love them so much! They are cousins and are always fighting with each other, so I’ll be the peacemaker…haha! I’m gonna miss hearing them shouting my name from far every time they see me!!!! T.T
With the little one that I adore so much!!! She’s the youngest amongst us (if I’m not wrong) and I wanna kidnap her so badly! Last 2 weeks she has been learning from her Sis and cousin (above) and calling me, “Vivian!!!” from far, then grin to me! Mad cute!!!! ❤
Super high during and after the finale that I was screaming, singing and laughing our way back to F1 pit! Life is gonna be rather “empty” now without NDP and I’ll have to get used to that D:
Did a quick change with Lyn again in the handicap toilet, and she said she’s gonna miss changing together with me…hahahaha! Damn cute!
While walking there, Lyn alerted me that there are 2 girls who keep snapping photos of us, which I kinda ignored. Then I stared a little harder and realised it’s actually Siew Eng and Xiao Qian!!! LOL!
Although I was the first to know the news that he might not be with us next year, and although this is my first year with him (as compared to the girls who have been with him for years), I’m still damn sad and affected when he broke the news in the afternoon…
It doesn’t help that he kept saying things like, “Might not have the chance again” and so on, which made us even more emo! And we all know that he’s feeling sad about it too, but he kept putting up a strong front and claiming that there will be no difference with or without him; man’s ego! Tsk!
Then whenever we expressed our sadness, he would pretend that we are sad because NDP has ended. But the fact is we are actually more sad that his journey with us has ended because the 5 of us have been really close these weeks!!!
Although I’ve only known him for 4 months and become close with him 1 month plus ago, I was the one who brought 5 of us together after all, according to him. And I’m also the closest one with him; the one that he doted on most. So there’s really no doubt that I wouldn’t be feeling as sad as the rest!
I can still remember someone warning me about his strictness during my audition day and from then on, I was quite wary of him and avoided trouble with him as much as I could. Then a simple, “Do I know you? You look familiar…” from him broke the ice few months ago, and the rest are just endless nonsense, fun and laughter~
Although I know I’ll still get to see him, I still can’t help but feel sad because we know how busy he is. And things are just gonna be different without our little gossips and so on x.x
Lyn and I were fighting back our tears so badly and it’s so damn tough for a 哭包！But I did it eventually, because I promised that I won’t cry in front of him…sigh~
Hung out with the girls till late night even though we all gotta work the next day =/
I guess we just wanted to spend as much time with each other, since we wouldn’t be able to meet weekly now.
Looking back, despite it being only 4 months and despite having all my Saturdays/Sundays burnt, everything has been really really worthwhile. It has always been my dream to perform for NDP again since 2004, and I’m glad to have fulfilled my own wish.
To think that I even wanted to give the audition a miss back then because I didn’t have enough courage, and of course I’m really glad that I did not, if not it would have become 1 of my biggest regrets!
Along this journey, I get to meet so many nice and sweet people that make me feel how blessed I am! From day 1 (the audition), I had already met nice people guiding me through, making me feel so welcomed and that I’m not alone after all (:
I’m definitely not lying when I said they make me feel so loved, and because of this, I really enjoyed this whole journey. I hope I have the chance to see them again next year if time permits.
But the end of this journey is definitely not the end of our friendship for 四朵金花 and Cla as well. Although I only got close to them in the last month, we all clicked so well and I really enjoy every moment with them ❤ All our nonsense and lame jokes, they’re gonna be remembered and missed! (((((((:
