Training for Chingay 2008

Tired. Its 2am in the morning and I'm online writing this... Yawn. I really ought to be sleeping...

Was alerted to an impromptu performance a couple of days ago and had to press the emergency ACTIVATE button to get together a team of performers for a Chingay item.

Mad rush to get everyone together and to coordinate the moves but we did it. I've been running through some ideas for this performance's choreography and tonight was the night it all came to fruition. Kinda...heh. We just need a little more practice and we'll be perfect.

Of course we couldn't have done it without the cooperation and effort everyone has given to this project. Especially the guys doing the Double Sabre segment, most had to train from scratch, and yet the end result is something that I had envisioned it to be - a perfect union of double sabres and straight swords. Looks good to me. Gotta video it and put it online if got the chance.

Special shout out to:
> Ivan and Evelyn. Thanks for taking up the challenge and putting in so much effort.
> Marcus and Yongchao. Thanks man... can you believe its been years since you've picked up a shuang dao? Heh...
> Everyone else who has put in time and sweat to make it unforgettable. I am sure we will all look back tomorrow and smile at the memories we are making today.

To the rest of you reading this, catch us at Chingay 2008 this Friday and Saturday night!
