A Night of Remembrance

Omg false lashies are now my best best friends!

*make up is thanks to Sammie!*


It spells glam, but not drag queen diva. Not too over. But not normal.
Powder foundation, shimmy shimmy gold eyeshadow, rose pink blusher to highlight my cheekbones, light pink lip gloss, liner! AND NOT FORGETTING, FALSE EYELASHES! :D

Tonight (actually 2 nights ago), was the night i debut my Waltz skills on stage!

It was a performance staged by MBBS Batch 14 students in support of the Padang Earthquake Charity Concert held in Aimst University.

Im so proud of my batch! Albeit having exams in another 5 days, 51 out of 130 students from MBBS Batch 14 joined together to contribute a part in this ever purposeful event!

For one whole week, we poured tears and sweat, time and strength, to practice our dance routine over and over again. Tiring, but fun! If it wasn't for this event, many bonds would not have formed, and i would have never known that I CAN WALTZ! :D

Our said performance is a fusion of 6 dances.

*according to sequence*
1) Mamma Mia - Abba
2) Waltz - FF7
3) Larger Than Life - Backstreetboys
4) Pop Duet
5) Thriller - Micheal Jackson
6) High School Musical "We're All In This Together"

I took part in 2 dance. Waltz and High School Musical!

It was mad fun i tell you. MAD FUN.

I still remember everyone complaining (and regretting to the core) in the middle of practice sessions. Who wouldn't? Exams are in a few days time! And its quite an important paper at that. You can't fail this paper. Failing it will means no sitting for Finals!

But after the whole concert, when the curtains fall, and when the audience gave their roaring applause, i look at my fellow dancers, and i see only happiness and joy in their eyes and smile. There's no doubt that IF EVER another opportunity like this arises, the same people will be the first ones volunteering.

Actually, i stumbled into the dance by chance. When thean sim announced our batch's participation in the event, i vowed never to enter because its too close to exams and im too lazy. The plan worked well for me a couple of days, where i sworn off all humans who started their sentence with a "come join the dance! We need more people!".

No one could shake me.

But i don't know what crossed my mind that one fateful day when Chan Zi Yin rang me. It was as if my mind blanked off for a moment, and i heard myself saying "Ok". My mind was shouting "STUPID STUPID CHRISTINE, YOU'RE GOING TO FAIL IN YOUR EXAMS! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO YOURSELF??", but my mouth had a mind of its own.

Dahlah it was one crazy hot afternoon, i had to drag my lazy bum to the Orientation hall.

Can guess who is my partner for the night? (scroll down the pics below and take your best guess)

For costumes, the girls all have to wear fancy gowns, whilst the men had to wear a white shirt with vest and tie.

ZOMG all the guys look hot! And it was only then i found out that 90% of the men in Waltz actually work out!

My partner apparently had 6 packs with a pari of very well defined biceps :D

Meet Cheng Foong. I told him for almost a year since the CNY dinner in Piao Xiang circa early Jan 2009; to practise his smiling skills in front of the camera. Hows the result?

This man is Chan. He was the one who managed to convince me to go.

Heres a picture of all the Walt dancers! pheeweeet!

All so handsome and pretty rite?

Now for some pictures of the Waltz couples!:

Hui Yuan and her partner Nicholas at the after party.

Cheng Foong and Winnie Wong Siaw Ting!

And last but not least, *dum derum dum dum*

Me and Kok Jin :)

Thanks for everthing. You are a wonderful partner to have :)

*sorry no pic of us dancing on stage cause we're actually not allowed to take pictures during the concert*
