Hula Hoop Dance

Destinee joined the school's Co-curriculum's Dancing (舞蹈) and Calligraphy (书法) societies at the beginning of the year. She was supposed to join the English society and I didn't understand why her class teacher placed her in the Calligraphy society. After attending a few lessons, Destinee came back and told me what she did in Calligraphy class and I now understand why she was placed in the Calligraphy society. She gets to learn the art of writing the Chinese words in which she's weak in. I guess her teacher knows Des is not good in Chinese and wants her to learn and write more. Anyway, 谢谢你,魏老师.

Destinee loves dancing, come Wednesday and Friday, she'll be the one to remind me to pack her 'activity' uniform into her bag. The dancing group made their first appearance when they performed during the school's mini sports day (more of a telematch).

Destinee with some of her schoolmates.
Dat's Ah Nee in the background.
She helped with the making-up of the kids.

a: Destinee with her classmates, Shiau Huei and Hoi Sei
b: Destinee, Hoi Sei and Hui Jing whom Des calls 'Big sister' (大姐姐)

Hahaha, the shirt and short pants look a bit too loose on her.

The 'dancers' dancing to the tune of "Do Re Mi".

Solo performance.

I was told dat she was the only one who knew how to 'hula' the hoop during the practices and dat might be the reason why her dance teacher let her performed alone.

I wasn't worried whether the hoop will fall halfway but what worried me was her pair of pants. I wished and wished it woundn't drop, else ..... no eyes see. Luckily it 'stayed' on. *kekekekeke*

The rest of the dance .....

Should have 'videocammed' the performance but poor me doesn't have a videocam ... :(

Chinnee - From Des: Aunty Chinnee, no need to be paiseh, my mommy oso doesn't know how to do the hula hoop. Hahaha!

Magictree - I dared not tell her dat day dat the costume didn't fit her which I'm sure she wouldn't want to wear. Might the the smallest size the teacher could find. Hahaha!

Ya ya, I heard dat most schools don't start with curriculum until the children are in Std. 3.

Nee - No worries, u look ok mah.

Michelle - *shhhh* Michelle, I too can't do the hula hoop myself.

As for friends in school, maybe her class teacher noticed dat Des is not sociable, dat's why her teacher encouraged her to take part in events to 'socialise' with not only her classmates but her schoolmates too.

Des already started her calligraphy class! Bravo!

Am going to enroll Wien to this class too.

Jess - Actually till now Des's still practising writing with the pencil cos I don't think the teacher will allow the children to use the brush and ink yet (not until they're in Std. 3). Aiyo, I can imagine if she's to use the brush and ink now - I've to buy more school uniforms. :P
