NDP 2014

Thanks to the 2 nights baking marathon, I did not have to rush on this big day like last year~ What was left to do was just packing the cookies into my usual goodie bags and adding on personalised message cards! Did not bake enough cookies actually, so I could only give the VVIPs and missed out on some that I planned to give 😦

Thought I could save on cab fare this year but in the end I still cabbed due to false alarm x.x But oh well~ I have so much stuff to carry! The 3 big Cs – cake, cookies and costumes are heavy enough for me, so that’s my annual excuse to cab…hehe. All the early birds snatching to take picture with the cakes~

Since I am also considered quiteeee an early bird (though still late by 2 hours), I pulled Leng Leng and Lyn to take a shot too! xD

Happy Birthday~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Photobombed by many.

Not that I wanna say, but all these “Can I have the cake?” “Can I have a piece?” “Can take?buay paiseh-ness is seriously getting on our nerves. You DO NOT go to a party asking for cake; you wait to be served, period. Especially when you’re nobody to us and we have much closer and important people whom had not even gotten the cake! You don’t expect me to get a cake big enough to serve all of you, do you? Geesh.

Test shot with Ah Lyn!

The funny girl brought her Polaroid camera but did not bring batteries -_- Luckily I know the place better now so we managed to run out to get the batteries!

Mini cupcake for us!
Thought it’s red velvet but it’s not 😦

Photobombing while conquering the super long security check queue!

Finally took some photos with Kelly but it ended up to be Lyn’s biggest regret…LOL. Not only did she start nagging about our hair, our makeup and etc, she also forced Lyn to paint her face! xD

But her lips couldn’t stop shaking and I ended up doing a terrible job, so Kelly had to take over…ROFL.

Again -.-“

With my favourite Steven 老师!!!The one that is always encouraging me with his “跳好好啊!” and even when I gave him the cookies, he actually said my handwriting is nice! OMG~ No one has really said that to me before because I’m quite well-known for my messy and ugly handwriting! Haha! But being encouraging as usual, he said as compared to youngsters nowadays, it’s considered very nice (((:

Leng Leng smiling cho~ happily! Hahaha!

But she said the picture made her look damn gigantic, which is true, so another take! Without Lyn in my group this year, she’s now the one helping me with my sari and etc ((:
So glad that she’s finally back this year!!!

Dashed over to take a shot with Uncle Tan again when I saw him with the funny wig! xD

With one of my group leaders for the year! The original one left halfway so they had to take over and they were quite lost too, due to lack of experience, but they were very open to our suggestions and trusted me to decide on what I think is best for our row (:

More and more!

The show was over in no time but I heard that we did a really great job!!! Indeed 台上一分钟,台下十年功!Although it didn’t feel like the last show, I still put up my best show and tried to smile as much as I can (though Steven 老师 still caught me on the big screen with pursed lips)hehe~ No matter how many times I stand on that stage, I still can’t help but feel a lil’ nervous!!!

But at least they weren’t any cameras facing me this time round; I was only caught on the big screen and not on TV! Guess I really hid myself well this year 😛

Preparing for finale!

 photo 20140809_195732_zps4a8ccec2.jpg

Cam-whoring with the cute kiddos again 😀

This boy was standing in front of us for the finale and during last week’s performance, he actually did a dance step in the opposite direction from all of us! Initially I gave him the benefit of doubt, thinking that maybe Eunice 老师 told him to do so but in the end his friend was like, “This way lah!!!” and he quickly changed direction embarrassingly…hahaha! So cute~

And and and! My achievement this year – I finally took a solo shot with my most respectable 老师!I respect him not so much of his choreographing or dance talent, but more of his good temper. He’s the one who has been training with us every week under the hot sun and even though we kept complaining and complaining, he never once did.

He was more passionate about making this show right and making sure that we are really ready for the performance! Because of such passion, it makes me wanna work harder for him, for myself, and for all the audience (:

Aftermath

And as everyone was partying around and snapping countless of photos, there was suddenly a mini fireworks show dedicated to all the performers and everyone who is involved in NDP 2014! So finally I had the chance to capture some fireworks shots! 😀

Oh and I had supporters again this week! But the most annoying one; just look at that face! >.>
Should have cropped him off leaving just Tim and I!
 photo 20140809_205028_zpse03acf0d.jpg

We just can’t stop our cat-fight whenever we see each other! It’s either he’ll be pulling my hair (which is what he was doing in the picture below, that’s why my hair looked so effed up) or I’ll be kicking at him. Yes! That’s the violent friendship we share!

I was so sad that they did not have any seats for us inside and I could only keep going in occasionally to listen to the live band~ Then at last, they had seats for us inside! And it’s my favourite spot! Yay to live band! Double-YAY to comfy spot! Hehe!

NDPeeps ❤

Was offered an opportunity to do something beyond my role and although it is a good opportunity to learn something new, something more, I don’t know if it’s a good idea. More can sometimes do you harm, and more can also means more responsibility, more expectation, more attention and more time. Especially now that I’ve decided to just focus on my part and finish up this show, which I had done so, 我想明年的事,明年再说吧。
