Indian Food Festival
…post for the day…
I’ve been gone so long, so busy with work and the house and my cousin being back from Dubai and working out I haven’t had the time to blog/blog hop. And now that I’ve managed to squeeze in some time, I’ve just flooded my blog with new posts. Anyway, this last one is to share about something REALLY exciting which happened a few weeks ago.
An old friend of mine asked if I’d like to perform with her sister and her at the Indian Food Festival. Which is this really huge event (check out the stage). Only problem was that we she asked me this A WEEK before the show. I wasn’t sure what to say but I knew that I really wanted this – I miss putting on a costume and being on stage. But I didn’t want to sign up for something I couldn’t do. And I didn’t want to spoil their show. And, A WEEK? How would I manage to learn TWO dances in JUST a week??
I said okay in the end though. Told myself I’d do my best. And guess what, “A WEEK” two learn two songs in fact, it wasn’t A WEEK, but 3 hours of practice for a Bollywood item song and 2 hours of practice for a Belly Dancing song. From FIVE DAYS to just FIVE HOURS? Unsurprisingly, I TOTALLY screwed up the second dance. I don’t like Belly Dancing and it’s much harder to learn/remember. I did okay for the first song but I was so nervous it clearly showed on my face. I was trying to make sure I wouldn’t make any mistakes (which I did still anyway). I wish I could do this better next time. But I’m glad I went for it. Oh. And thanks to all that running I’ve been doing in the late afternoons, my arms are now super tanned compared to the rest of my body – especially my tummy and legs. And. I’ve also lost about 3 kilos. Super like! Costumes were sewn by my friend Mil, the one with the short hair.
Oh yeah. It was a HUGE GRAND event with media coverage and all. There was a lot of waiting and the schedule got messed up but in the end it was a good experience still.
You can watch the video here if you’d like. Must warn you that I look grumpy and worried though.
