Having my monthly-hot-soup-crave and got it satisfied with a good 酸辣汤！Underestimated the spiciness and the amount though ._. But still have to squeeze down the 流氓冰 because it’s a rare opportunity! Hahaha!
Off for first full-dress rehearsal of Chingay 2016! 😀 I actually came 1 hour earlier to practise with the rest of the mates but still not as confident as previous years~ Sigh. It’s either I have missed too many practices this year, or the dance is just simply much faster and more complicated!
We were initially in the kimono group but due to some sizing issue, we were being changed to the Happi group, which was originally the men’s group, and the dance is also more 钢～ We were a bit disappointed because we were all looking forward to wear the kimonos! But after seeing their costumes, we are glad for the change…hahaha! Our costumes are much nicer!!! xD
It was another long wait at the F1 pit before it was our turn… Did not take many photos because by the time we reached, it was the start of the welcome party soon and I was also busy distributing the food and drinks~ But the most 有心 one still came over to find me for an annual shot! 😀
Was utterly disappointed with my performance of the night because I made so many mistakes! Had to keep looking left and right at my mates’ dance steps as well instead of being able to dance confidently on my own~ And both sides’ timing are always different so I got more confused instead!
Mad shagged too and I almost forgot how tiring each Chingay performance is after 1 year! Hahaha! In the end, I concluded that 真的老了 because 一年比一年累 x.x
Went for Hot Flow class after not trying it for a long time and I almost died. It felt like the longest 1 hour ever but it definitely brought my endurance to the next level! Most importantly, no jelly legs when walking down the stairs after class!!!
逛年市 on Tuesday night and although there wasn’t much this year and I also did not buy much except for a sky lantern, I am still glad that my wish got fulfilled! Hehe! Sometimes the annual Chinatown trip is just for the 气氛 too (:
Almost lost all the pictures in this post, or rather, I did lose all of them but thank goodness I managed to retrieve them! The first time my SD card got corrupted, I managed to retrieve it via my old S4. Then it happened again after 1 week and this time, even my S4 could not read the card!
Tried various methods and I just couldn’t bear to reformat the card again without getting back my pictures for the week~ So finally, I found this data-recovery software which tried to trick me to pay to recover my files, but I screenshot them one by one via Preview! Ta-duh~!!! So here are all my pics! 😀
They have like the best Happy Hour promo with all the cocktails going at 50% off!!! Usually all the Happy Hour I have seen are only for beers and house pours~ What’s more they have my favourite Illusion! Of course I’m gonna start off with that! 😛
Back for the second and third round, which was also the main reason we were there for – $6 nett Moscato!!! And they only have this promo on Wednesdays, so to enjoy both the Happy Hour and $6 Moscato, it’s better to visit on a Wednesday 😀
Super excited when I received my big parcel because all my Laneige loots are inside! I found this website – Althea that sells Laneige products at much lower prices than retail shops! And they ship from Korea, so definitely safer than buying from Taobao because you don’t know what you’ll get.
Had my first lohei of the year with the PA team! A pity the video was in the corrupted card and I couldn’t screenshot a video 😦 But you should have seen the mess we created! The lohei stuff all ended up on the table…LOL!
But of course the lohei was not the main thing for the night, it was just the only fun part =X
Following that was a stressful Jazz dance workshop which was supposed to help us de-stress, but I ended up being extremely stressed instead, especially with the camera and all….Zzzzz!
Even HM 老师 told me after the workshop not to be shy when dancing and just relax~ But don’t people get it? There’s no way I can feel relax dancing around a room of people I know! For people whom dancing is not much of a problem for them, of course they can just relax and dance -.- But it’s not my forte and as much as I love to dance, I know my strength and weakness and I am conscious about them.
I guess that’s why I don’t mind doing Zumba/Yoga classes alone? I just feel more comfortable when I don’t know anyone. And even that I will still inevitably feel a little conscious about myself. The only time I can relax and dance is when I am drunk enough I guess. So the next time there’s such workshop I guess I should excuse myself from such stress or just get terribly drunk first.
Happy that my wish of giving Kakis Bistro & Bar one last support was fulfilled! 😀 The place was closing down in 3 days’ time and it held some memories, so I just wanted to visit it again~ Feel sad whenever places with memories are gone!
Started the Saturday with a good lunch at yet another memorable place…haha! But I was so so so famished that the grumpiness couldn’t be helped~ Soooooooooooooooo hungryyyyyyyyyyy!!!! Glad to fill my tummy with a good mee sua! Hehe!
Off for the second Chingay full-dress rehearsal and we decided to meet up earlier to practise again. We had the privilege of having our private practice in the air-conditioned dance studio! Practised over and over again and with the help of Peilian and Mojo, I, or rather, we finally started to get the steps right!
But while I was worried about myself, I had to worry about my teammates as well and some of them just don’t seem as concerned as I am. Like 皇上不急太监急～ I mean I understand everyone has got other commitments and all but somehow I feel that if you know you’re unsure of the steps, the more you should come earlier to practise… I don’t know how people can just always try to pull off a show and live with the guilt of all the mistakes made. I really can’t!
Anyhow, off to F1 and feeling a bit more confident this week (:
I would say I did much better this week because at least I didn’t have to keep looking left and right to follow my mates’ steps. I am more confident with my steps this week but also because I was over-confident, I misheard the music a few times and still did the wrong steps! T.T
There were some audience this week because it was the NE show and the worst mistake happened during the second time that we danced (we had to dance a total of 6 times because it’s a really long stretch), where most of the audience were seated! I missed a step and ended up being the only one squatting down, mad embarrassing!!!!!!!!
But I still think it was better than last week because at least I am clearer of the steps this time, so that means I can smile more when I dance instead of looking frantically left and right to follow the steps >.< Just need even more practice to be 100% confident!!!
Caught on candid camera again by one of the NDP members! I am praying hard this wasn’t the part that I danced wrongly….hmmmmm. But anyway, still not smiling enough! Guess I was still pretty nervous!
