Chingay 2017 Full-dress Rehearsal 1

Was having 2 choices in mind as to where to go for Tuesdate and I got both fulfilled without even speaking my mind! ๐Ÿ˜… First up, Chinatown ๅนดๅธ‚~! Every year is more or less the same stalls but still like to take a look…hehe.

Dessert after the window-shopping! Was attracted by the ็‚–ๅฅถ actually~ I think I finally found something close to Hong Kong‘s!

The kind of indulgence only when there is promo~

Dragged Siew Siew for free class again and it was some Kpop Fitness class this time. The male instructor was ๅจ˜ daooooooooooooooo~~~~~~~~ Some of the moves I couldn’t even do it because he’s just so much more ๆŸ” than females ๐Ÿ˜ Did not really sweat as much as Piloxing, really miss that!!!

Oh Siew Siew made me a really cute CNY card and talisman!!! HAHAHA! She designed all everything (including the characters) herself and printed it out you know? Super talented!  photo 20170122_235955-1_zpsm5l9czrl.jpg

Saturday brunch after another scouting and I was happy to have my olive tofu!!! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹ But the auntie didn’t take the piece with the most olive…

Had our very first full-dress rehearsal for this year’s Chingay and because there wasn’t extra practice for us – the commoners, we decided to have our own! 4 weeks since our last practice, me the kanchiong group leader was definitely worried~ Worried for members and worried for myself too ๐Ÿ˜…

Managed to sneak into an empty ballroom to have our private practice! Hehe! My mighty mic cum speaker worked well too! Definitely a much-needed practice before the full-dress!

Goofing around with Boomerang after practice! ๐Ÿ˜†

I said we are the “commoners” because the highlight is on the sensei and those dancing in the water~ Their dance is so nice that I think we might have a chance of winning the best item again this year! ๐Ÿ˜„

Full-dressed! Was a bit disappointed in our costumes this year because it’s kinda plain. And not very Jap too! Even Mickey-san said so when I sent him the pics~ But at least it’s not some weird durian costume.

With my ๅฐๅคฉไฝฟ! ๐Ÿ‘ผ

Not only does she help me with my handphone-safekeeping every year, this year I also gave her a desperate mission of finding hairpins for me, and she accomplished it once again after much searching ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… Always thankful to have her!

And after much waiting, it was finally our turn to ๅ‡บๅœบ! The most-hated thing about Chingay is definitely the longgggg idle time before our item~ It’s usually more than an hour and there’s simply nothing to do cause you can’t walk around to take pictures anymore as the parade is starting/has started ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

Wefies right before our item! ๐Ÿ˜

We were trying so hard to wefie until Desmond said, “You all know I can take for you right?” ๐Ÿ˜‚

Really look like we are some waitress in a Nonya restaurant or some ๆ‘ๅง‘! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Was having blisters by the time we danced till Flyers area ๐Ÿ˜ฃ But that also means another 3 more rounds to go before we reach the end point!

Not used to the big ribbon sash at the back too and kept feeling like it’s dropping, hence got distracted during performance. Danced wrongly a few times too! Really need to practise even more!!! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช

Reward after rehearsal!
Cause I was dying for ice-cream and I got it fulfilled…hehe!

All the supper-ers..tsk tsk tsk.ย Oh and thank god for Xin Wang! It wasn’t easy finding a place to eat after 10.30pm~

Had primary school gathering with Edmund & Co at Guo’s crib! It’s been so long since we last gathered, or rather, it’s been so long since I last joined their gatheringย ๐Ÿ˜… Always honoured to be invited! Although the main topic was BTO, we still had a great time catching up and nua-ing at the cozy living room~ย  And after our conversations, I can conclude that all who have stayed AMK before wouldn’t wanna move away from it!!! Hehe. Forgot to take a group photo…booohoooo!

The rest of the Sunday that didn’t turn out as expected~ But oh well, at least I got to eat my tutu kueh and durian mousse!

Could have spent the time more wisely and fulfilling though. Just felt the stress of having so many things to do and book for upcoming trip and suddenly there is last-minute change of plan which could have been avoided if people can be more straightforward.

Like I have said before, sometimes straight answers save a lot more time than trying not to “reject” people ๐Ÿ˜“ Caused more disappointment than being rejected too. Thankful but really cannot tolerate such ai mai ai mai attitude every time.
