1st & 2nd Chingay Rehearsal @ PA Headquarter

1st Rehearsal, 29th Nov 2014 (Sat)

At first, i didn't think of blogging about this, but after some thoughts, since this is my maiden Chingay performance and after that, i do not know whether i still have any chances to take part in any upcoming Chingay Parade, shall blog about it, so that in future, can refer back to it.

My Zumba Instructor has been asking around during the month of September last year for volunteers to take part in the Wushu Contingent @ Chingay 2015 which will be held on 27th Feb (Fri) & 28th Feb (Sat) at the Singapore F1 Pit. 

Some of my Zumba kaki sign up, but not me, as i'm worried i might not be committed to it.  One of my Zumba kaki keep persuade me to go and telling me that it's fun.  I only sign up last minute, 1 day  (my Zumba class is on Friday) before the rehearsal start and the following day, it's the 1st rehearsal at the PA Headquarter.

The 1st rehearsal is at PA Headquarters @ King George Ave.  The transport pick us up quite early that day at 2.30pm (Rehearsal starts at 6.30pm and ends at 10pm) at the Community Centre, as we were to be there to take measurement for the costumes and tried out the shoes which is provided for the actual day performance.

2nd rehearsal, 13th Dec 2014 (Sat)

The 2nd Chingay rehearsal is also held at PA Headquarter.  The rehearsal is in the evening from 6.30pm to 10pm.

Dinner that is provided, this round, only 2 dishes and more rice, most of us still prefer the previous dinner as there's lesser rice and 3 dishes instead of 2 dishes.
