We got up at 11:30am today 😲 We were both so tired, N from his crazy busy work week, and me from being woken up three times during the night by Little Miss. So by the time we went for brunch, it was 1pm and so technically already lunchtime 😂
We had our Latin lesson, and we covered both Cha Cha and Rumba, the two Latin dances that we were going to perform at the birthday dinner tonight. We’ve been asked to perform 😲
So of course I’ve been stressing about it for the past few days, since I’m probably one of the few dancers who actually don’t like to perform! As a true introvert, I just don’t like the attention. The same reason why I don’t really like comps, not to mention all the pomp and fuss that goes along with them.
But somehow, when today finally rolled around, the nervousness somehow dissipated and I just allowed myself to enjoy the evening. And of course, when I’m not nervous, I follow N better, I interact with the audience more, and I just feel the music so much more and therefore dance that little bit better. The birthday lady said that she really enjoyed my dancing, and so did her friends. That was really nice to hear, coz we always think it’s so terrible when we watch it, we just never think that other people would actually like it. So it’s nice to hear that some people do in fact appreciate our dancing 😊
We got food at the birthday – there was actually a dancers’ table, with all three performing couples and our entourage (parents and spouses) all given dinner, which I thought was very nice of the birthday organisers to do. And the food was really nice! Pretty much all the food was what would be usually served at a Chinese wedding. But unfortunately, I didn’t get to eat as much as I would have liked. I can never really eat when we have to go and dance. This happened during the comp in Vietnam too.
So we cooked some gyoza from out of the freezer and ate them while we watched the France 🇫🇷 vs Croatia 🇭🇷 final 🥟🥟 We got home just in time for the match 😅 Awesome game to watch! Who would’ve thought six goals would’ve been scored in the final?! 😲 A good final 👍
