Chingay 2017 – Parade 1!

Packed food from home because I gotta leave early for Chingay! Looking 丰盛 but actually all leftovers from steamboat + 拜天公 😅

Totally regretted reporting to JAS instead of reporting straight because it was mad rush! Couldn’t get a cab nor Grab either and thankfully there was some delay, if not I would have missed the bus at JAS!

If only we had known earlier than there would be any makeup or face paint this year 😓 But at least I made it! And saved money too..haha~ On the way to F1 for the official parade 1!

Skipped the dinner and went straight to take photos! Didn’t wanna wait till the sky turns grey like the previous day~ Must still take all the mandatory shots!

Lyn said 财神爷 didn’t let us win TOTO cause his “bowl” is empty liao 😔

Chanced upon some familiar faces from my NDP Chinese group! But messy hair due to the wind and also shadows on my face 😦

Joanjoan and I spotted this cute Japanese boy some time ago and we love to watch him dance! Mojo said he looks like he’s wiping the table 😂😂😂 Super cute one! The chubby cute~

Tattoos given by 教授! One on my fat arm, but I forgot that it will be covered by the arm sleeve 😭

Ready for the parade! 😀 Actually I was extra nervous because of all the mistakes the previous night… So scared that I would dance wrongly again but I know the more I am stressed about it, the more I’m gonna make mistake! I just can’t work under stress!

Thankfully, there was no blank-out moment nor any mistake made! I was seriously soooooo stressed when performing, cause there are audience and I kept thinking I really can’t afford to make mistakes! I ask for perfection whenever it comes to performances and I may not be a good dancer, but I wouldn’t wanna be a bad one either, affecting the whole group and ruining the performance.

Usually I will be more stressed for Chingay because the audience are closer, so I will practise harder at home. But this year I didn’t really practise at home at all, partly because of time, so I only watched the video tutorial.

Really happy that I got all the confusing moves right! There are so many challenging dance steps this year and the arm swing was one of them right from the beginning… Then there are those quick hand movements followed by a quick squat and up, which everyone had a hard time catching because it’s damn fast! But I got it eventually!!! And every time I managed to catch it, I will give a wide smile because I genuinely felt happy that I managed to get the beat right…hahaha!

Managed to capture some pretty fireworks while waiting for the NDPeeps to finish their duties 😊

Was pretty exhausted after a whole day of work plus all the rushing, followed by 6 continuous times of dancing 😪 But the little girl was hungry again, so we went around trying to find places that still have food. I think Singapore really has very boring nightlife. Walked so damn long before we finally found SGbar that still has its kitchen open for us~

Not hungry, just thirsty…
