Falling asleep slowly
in a mystical land of wonders.
It was the first time I participated in Urbanscapes. Upon the first sight, I saw throngs of energetic and vivacious people scattered across the field.
I had experienced cultural shock for a while, as I met members of the fringe such as hipsters, punks, hoboes, and underground artistes.
I would consider Urbanscapes as an annual festival that celebrates individuality.
Through this event, I realized that music and arts are not just hobbies. Instead, they are the remedies of life.
很庆幸能认识你! 初次见面，请多指教。预祝你在年终的A水平考试中顺利过关。我们有缘再见! :)
你好，朋友! 我还真没想到能在泰莱湖滨校园再次遇见你! 真的很高兴。希望你一切如故。

2011 SPM Chinese Language Seminar.
Do you believe in fate?
I do… when I see you.
The One Academy’s Creative Art Award 2011.
Managed to capture a few photos during the seminar after the tiring competition.
Met a new friend from SMK Seri Kembangan. Too bad, I have forgotten what was his name.
Anyway, he was sitting next to me during the seminar. And he is an aspiring animator.
Although I did not win any prizes, but still, I have no regrets for joining this event.
Out of 1500 contestants nationwide from the preliminary stage, I feel lucky to be selected as one of the 800 students to enter the final round, because I do not have any Art background or go for any formal Art classes.
It was indeed a great experience.
Lastly, thanks for the moral support from my family! Thank you so much!
好久没吃过这麽丰富的晚餐了! 我相信在电脑荧幕前的你，单单看照片就垂涎三尺咯! 呵呵!
Starts drooling? Oh, please don’t. There are more to go. ;D
May the Year of Rabbit brings prosperity and wealthiness to everyone of you! Happy Chinese New Year! Gong Xi Fa Cai!
Hello everyone, I am back!
Now, I am going to share with you my experience in joining an international ballroom dancing competition for the first time.
A view of Penang Bridge from the bus.
Captured from the entrance of the hotel.
Early in the morning, all the competitors were asked to try out the dance floor inside the Grand Ballroom at the Penang Bayview Hotel.
It was really crowded even though it was only 6.30am in the morning.
I then walked around the space and tried out the floor in different positions. I saw some dancers from other academies rehearsing their steps over there as well. What I noticed was that they had a “fierce” expression on their face, as if they were going to devour other contestants just to win this competition.
With my mom.
“Calling number 345!”
Ready for battle!
The day program has a total of 91 events, and the category I joined was the “Latin Solo Under 16 – Cha Cha & Jive”, which would be Event 72. It was indeed a long wait before my turn. So, I took a short nap when the other events were going on.
There were quite a lot of contestants in my category.
I tried to calm myself down before I entered the dance floor, because I took off my spectacles and I can barely see my surroundings clearly.
Since everyone stepped in the dance floor earlier than me, I had to choose the center-back position. In front of me were the audience, and at the middle row was the videographer from Astro. I kept praying that the judges could see my number from afar. :P
Although I was a bit slow on certain steps, I still manage to catch up with the rhythm of the songs.
I felt relieved after the two dances. “At last, I can rest now!” I shouted at myself.
I was happy even though I did not get to enter the second round, because this is my first attempt and I did gain valuable experience and was able to observe experienced dancers competing on the dance floor.
One thing I can say is that the atmosphere was completely different from watching the competition on the Internet. For instance, you can feel the excitement when the professionals were fighting against each other on the ground. It was actually like having a war on the dance floor.
Not many photos were taken during the competition though, as the security guard did not allow us to do so.

See the blacken toes on my left leg? This is the result of my dance practices.
Anyway, I wish to join this competition again… probably in a few years time when I am physically healthy. (Yes, I vomited in the next morning.)
I am proud because I danced in front of everybody despite I have a abnormal spine.
Thanks for the support from my family!
I appreciate the guidance from William & Luisa Danceworld.
Thanks to my teacher, Royce Eng and the person in-charge of this Penang Trip, Aunty Merle.
Thank you, Dana Yeoh Synn-Yi and congrats to you!
Congrats to those who made it to the finals!
To those who did not, please do not ever give up and I wish y’all the best in the next competition!
I had a great moment with y’all! See you.
Two weeks of exams are finally over! Goodbye to school, and say hello to holidays!
Yes, I can have a break now! :D

Busy week. School’s monthly tests.
27th August. Afternoon – Night.
Joined the Chinese Singing Competition at my school for the first time with my partner, Karlson Chou. Surprisingly, we made it to the finals!
To be frank, I was so surprised to know the results. (We did not expect that we could actually sing so well.) Haha.
Anyway, I’ve completed this portrait today. Ah, fianlly!
Her name is Debbie Goh. She cast in Malaysian Chinese dramas like Age of Glory & Age of Glory 2. Besides, she also owned an Indonesian restaurant called IR: 1968 in Kuala Lumpur. (Near Jalan Ampang.) I impressed with her very much.
Hey guys, I had attended a ballroom dance party and dinner at the Royal Lake Club, Kuala Lumpur last Saturday. In fact, I really enjoyed the moment with my dance-mates there.
Happy 18th Birthday to William & Luisa Danceworld!
This is me at the entrance.
