Merry 5th Day of Christmas

Was so busy throughout Nov and Dec that Christmas came and passed in a flash. For whatever reasons, i didn’t get to sing nor listen to many Christmas carols this year, which is quite a shame. Went to watch CZ12 on Christmas eve. Excellent movie. Classic Jacky Chan at his best! It was non-stop action and laughs. I enjoyed the show so much I wanna watch it again… But i think i’ll wait for the DVD or Blueray.

Just watched Jack Reacher… Not too bad, typical Hollywood action show which i think i’ll forget about in a few weeks’ time.

Came down with a cold on Christmas day. Such a bummer but i’m almost fully recovered.

Anyway, thank you Jesus for coming down on earth 2000 plus years ago. I know Christmas wasn’t the actual birth date of Christ but it’s symbolic for us to commemorate God with us, Emmanuel has come.

ANGELS FILL THE NIGHT WITH SINGING, GOD IS REACHING OUT TO MAN
BRINGING US A GIFT OF HOPE IN CHRIST OUR SAVIOUR
MORE THAN JUST A TIME OF GIVING, THIS IS GOD’S ETERNAL PLAN
AND CHRISTMAS IS THE REASON WE CAN SING AGAIN

Blessed Christmas!

Salsa

After 8 long years, I’m taking salsa lessons again. It all started when I saw this notice for a performance course and decided on a last min whim to go for the audition for the course. Thankfully, I cleared it and so I joined the 8-week class.

Two Weds ago, I also saw a new 4-week advance class opening and so I signed up for that too.

To date, I think the performance course is really interesting. I’m only able to satisfactorily do 80-90% of the moves… Which I’m rather disappointed at myself but I console myself in that if I could do everything, then the course would be a waste of money.

The advance class, unfortunately, was below my expectations. I think the problem is that some guys who are obviously not ready for the class are taking it and being a “lead-follow” dance, I’m limited in what I can do cos of this. The good thing is that social night at the studio falls on the same day as the advance class so I get lots of good practice there.

I still need to drill the on-2 count into my system. I can handle on-2 for most songs but when it comes to very fast songs, I still have a tendency to revert to on-1. Hopefully, with more practice, I’ll slowly rid myself of this “bad habit”.

Anyway, it’s been a super tiring week but I’m looking forward to salsa tomorrow. Being able to just focus on getting the count and dancing is quite therapeutic. 🙂
