Lion Dance!

Grand Daddy has always been in love with Lions. He hasn't received training but he can play the drums very well and at one point in time, he was even involved in their performances so naturally when he learned that the annual Lion Dance Competition was held at Takashimaya Shopping Centre, he was very excited and said he wanted to be there.

We all came down with him and Cheryl was jumping around as she has never been so close to these creatures before. We came down for 3 evenings in a row and I must say, the performances got better with each passing evening. Absolutely no regrets for staying up late because we were so entertained by the realistic performances of these troupes. They really made the lions come alive!

Cheryl was watching alright but for a good part of the performance, she had her eyes tightly closed because of the loud and deafening drums and cymbals. She was quite smart and got Daddy to cover her ears and Daddy could not even move his hands slightly before she quickly held on to them. Except for that, she looked every bit a seasoned spectator, knowning when to clap and cheer!

  • It's been a while since we sat ourselves in a plane. Definitely itching to fly over, to let our hair loose, to catch up with friends and be tourists.
