First up, I just wanna say a big thank you to dear Viv for our band shoot yesterday (PS:// sorry I cropped the 2nd photo). So sweet of her to shoot the three most awkward people in front of the camera. She'll tell us to "LOOK HAPPY AND LAUGH GUYS!", and, with widened eyes, we go,"ahh-ha-ha-ha-omg-we-can't-make-it-ha-ha-ha". That's when Chiewy&Edeline come in with their ever-funny laughing gas that saves the day <3 We owe all them 10 million & 1 lunches. Totally fell in love with this shoot's location she picked for us because the grass isn't green and the lighting at twilight is almost perfect. Can't wait to see the rest of the roll. Anyways, Adia, Sam and I will be performing at the Quad (SBS - School of Biological Sciences) NTU, on Saturday, 11 - 1130am! If you're down, do drop by to say hi :)
Long story short, we had the nothing but epic Hall Olympiad Closing Ceremony (HOCC) on Friday. Tia experienced one of my many momentary frenzies, the second those strobes started orbiting. The scene played out as follows:
Manda: *Grabs onto seat* IT'S BEGINNING //10 v.long minutes later// Manda: Eh, damn long. Tia, go stand at the railing so I can take a photo. Tia: *v. obediently makes her way down. curses and swears*
There's your explanation behind the first photo. I love my friends for putting up with random moments that I just need-to-photograph-someone-because-of-good-lighting.
Anywho, I felt so tingly after every performance. The dancers' hard work and long nights really shone through those moments when they took their bows and beamed those smiles. So proud of Hall 13 & and my cousie Nicnic (Hall 12) for putting up such an awesome performance.
On a side note, ha ha ha ha dear Cepheus randomly messaged me that photo (2nd last) the other day "test shot from video shoot. concussing now". I think he did a wonderful job (as usual) with the shots for our Hall Dance Intro video, despite the storyline being a little complicated. The theme for this year's is Transcendence. Above is the promo vid for Transcendence through time, love and distance hahah we all tried our best la huh. Just love the way Michelle dances her Contemp. Sorry for the lousy acting.
PS:// Shout out, thanks T for the flower even though I'm highly undeserving of it.
Traveling to 8 different amazing race stations = No Joke. Wholesomely exhausted my Saturday with the Split Second Camera Crew - Ivan, Kevin and Clara. Thank God for Kev and his awesome life saving car. I knocked out (as I always do) in the car because of my sleepless night of 3hours :S From chasing chickens, to chocolate tarts at Katong Shopping Centre, despite the terrible weather, I'm so glad I spent a day with these few, really. (Ok, I'm supposed to upload the photos onto the SS FB page now, but I a bit paiseh so gimme awhile)
Tiffy so adorable.
Photos by Rinnie. The colour and f-stop, so beautiful //gasps//
First time in my life attending a committee appreciation dinner. I have to admit, it's a very smart way to end off an adhoc (even though it's almost a year later). Braving through Golden Mille centre isn't exactly an ideal, but I'm so glad for CAMA, esp Kexin. Met all the committee members once again. Most of them are leaving hall next year so I feel pseudo jaded. OhkayAlright, make new fwenz :'( not v. psyched I wanna remain in my hermit shell. Can't wait to meet new freshies though. JollyHo, everyone will be at least 3-4 years younger.
I have learnt that true love may never be seen by anyone but one's self. It's a quiet acknowledgment that does right, despite trial. It's not showy, but silently accepts. Which brings me to my point:
"4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."
Today, I understand.
Teamed up with the lovely Bev for our first Viscomm Artzine assignment. So many deadlines coming in. Here's our Work in Progress video. Sorry, I'm not very good in filming and editing :X Gotta learn from the film students. Hope our presentation goes well today.
