[hot-air ballooning – the liftoff] – Steve from NJ on Flickr, 22nd Jan ’06.
The showcase that I’d written about in earlier entries is actually a regular performance put up by students of the music school once every few months. For our own, and people who have been invited to watch. And it finally arrived on last Sunday afternoon. Gee, the total audience added up to about 40+ people? What a crowd ;p
And that day turned out to be a surprise party for our teacher’s birthday as well (celebration in advance oops, and i had like shit idea about it). Volunteers bringing in food and drinks for the showcase, and soon everyone was crammed into the room, all ready to enjoy.
The first half of the day consisted mainly of individual singing performances. Many of the first-time performers sang really well IMO, and I suck in comparison. It’s like WTF, they had only been learning for a month!? Sighs.
The other groups’ performances were funny as hell, like Tristan/Jack/Edwin’s group, and WL’s å€©å¥³å¹½é‚ act. Quite a few of the guys in other groups were forced to cross-dress in the performances, but WL carried his off with flair to say the least, really bloody hilarious. You had to see it to understand : )
My group’s turn wasn’t too shabby either, despite a lack of rehearsals. Good co-ordination and impromptu dialogue between HY, Kim, YJ and Estee were the factors that carried the entire thing off. YJ’s costume was a riot, to say the least lol. He’s a really one sporting dude to agree to everything and bring it off with style at that : ) i’m certainly glad I wasn’t the one being dressed up. Kim’s exchange with HY over the banana was bloody funny, I really should’ve recorded the entire exchange, damn. But it was YJ who got the most out of the audience, i think they laughed their asses off on his makeup and costume alone, ç™½é›ªå…¬”çŒª”!
i’d missed the earlier rehearsal, so yeah me screwed up. Good thing my role was pretty minor, so no serious damage done to the overall thing, phew.
But I was glad I didn’t miss it, despite running a fever on that day. It was certainly fun! : )
