Not that I’ve got anything major but it’s not the perfect health condition I have had from the previous years, so I’ve decided to work on it and lead a healthier lifestyle! Of course I won’t be having salad everyday and all but just gonna cut down on alcohol, junk food, desserts and all~ (Cut down! Not abstain completely!) That’s just my way of not letting people around me worry for me; my way of being responsible towards them (:
So glad that despite the long car queue and the usual impatience, we persevered and eventually got serviced by these cute people! We even met the poster girl!!! Hahaha! They were so happy to take photos (as usual), and all of them rushed over for this shot! xD
It was our project group’s 10th anniversary and I finally, finally made it for this year’s celebration…hahaha! Last year I think I was in Vietnam; last last year it clashed with SNG rehearsal and for the remaining 6 years that I was with them, I can’t remember why…LOL. But in other words, the timing is just always not right! 😛
So now that this year I could finally join them, and especially for such a significant big 10, I didn’t mind doing more~ Took up the challenge of performing for them this year to make up for my 7 years of absence! Haha! Anything as long as it’s not a solo performance – that was my only request!
This year the organising committee has decided to let the residents have a chance to experience a D&D night and the theme was retro! This explains the polka dots balloons put up by fellow volunteers since hours before the party! (:
Started our rehearsal by singing together before moving on to the stage~ We didn’t have time to rehearse before hand except for the short meeting we had 1 week ago, so everything is pretty last minute I would say. There were some hiccups here and there like I still can’t get the Banana song lyrics right, the key for 我只在乎你 is too low and I felt very “suppressed” having to match to the ukulele’s key and etc.
much limited rehearsing and doing whatever we could (e.g. sacking Mr Law for 我只在乎你 so that we don’t have to match his Ukulele…LOL), we girls finally got changed to our “retro” outfit to fit the theme! I know my qipao is more of vintage than retro but it was said that “you can describe a vintage item as retro but never a retro item as vintage!” 😛
But the night doesn’t end without a disco session, at least not when the residents are around! They just love to dance so much that I finally figured out why every MINDS event is so exhausting…hahaha! Cause you gotta dance along with them and you will be amazed how well they remember all the dance steps taught during the past years camps!
And finally it was the end of the D&D night! We felt that the residents were unusually quiet tonight (except for the last disco part), probably due to the seating arrangement and all, but at least there weren’t any major hiccups and the party went smoothly! (:
Sunday was a busy one since it’s the last weekend before I fly and there were much to be done before leaving~ Finally went for my dental checkup, got my fringe trimmed, and also brought new friends back again! 😀
Off for Trinity outing cum buddy’s advance birthday celebration, since I won’t be around on his actual day! The birthday boy chose ramen so I brought him to the ramen place where I had with le ex-colleagues~
Introduced the guys to the yummilicious Godiva ice-cream but we were all too full from the ramen, so we did some walking before eating it! They ended up blaming me that they might get one every time they past by now because it’s just way too awesome…hahaha!
Intended to go back early because I needed to pack my luggage, but dropped by buddy’s house to finally meet his chubby nephew for the first time and got hooked on to him! He is sooooooo cute and smiley please!!!
2 days work week for me! 😀
