Precious Moments

Published on October 1, 2007

Its good to be able to write again. Lately things have been moving so fast that I hardly had the time to sit down and pen my thoughts. I left for Sydney on the evening of 14 Sep, after rushing through a hectic half day at work trying to finish as much as possible and [...]

It’s great to be back to familiar sights and sounds, not so great about the heat and humidity, but the cheap food and tantalising smells mask it to an extent – somewhat.? But all that pales in comparison to seeing lizzie pressed upon the gates while I lugged my 23 kilos worth of baggage (I [...]

Salsa in Sydney

Published on April 29, 2007

I remember that back in Singapore someone once told me that there was no salsa scene in Sydney.? That got me rather worried because, well, I really liked to salsa.? That someone was totally and utterly wrong – the Sydney salsa scene is very much alive and kicking ass!? You know how there’re these these [...]

Back to lessons at Xen

Published on March 2, 2007

I went back for my first day of lessons on Monday at Xen, after a dunno how many weeks break. And I could still feel the inertia of having to move those muscles that have been collecting dust. I stepped into Xen during the tail end of the Afro Cuban class and although the music [...]

Singapore Salsa Festival

Published on October 20, 2006

The first ever salsa festival in Singapore started with much aplomb on Friday 13th October. When ty and myself arrived at Downtown East on Friday?night after work, we were just in time for the first round of performances. It was truly entertaining, esp this little couple aged 10-11 who got the crowd roaring with delight. [...]

Feeling the Music

Published on August 15, 2006

Upon reflection, I’ve come to realise that one of the most electrifying salsa nights I’ve had were those nights where I could spontaneously come up with steps and totally sweat the night out and just keep moving.? One of the main ingredients of that, I feel, is the music (and of course having lizzie around).? [...]

Hard Rock Cafe

I guess it’s been some time since both of us posted and the reason is that we’re both ultra busy, Liz (see post below) and I.? Yeap, I’ve actually been busy with NS work, after hours and all that.? But that’s over anyway, so here I am blogging at work.? Haha. The past weeks have [...]

Dancing On 2

Published on July 11, 2006

Note: I may sound preachy here, but these are?just my feelings and perhaps rants?on the issue unsorted and perhaps a little?condescending.? I don’t intend any offence so don’t get pissed over one man’s views.? For those wanting more, a full objective article about dancing salsa on 2 will be posted soon enough.? Yes, I admit [...]

Dance Dance Dance!

Published on July 7, 2006

I love dancing with lizzie!? Wednesday night was such a great dance night and we both had so much fun!? The music at Xenbar was not its usual fare and was fast and dynamic with some songs that we’ve never heard before, but they were all good.? It was like hit after hit after hit, [...]

Salsa Intoxication

Published on July 5, 2006

There are some days when I just cannot seem to dance….I call those days salsa slumps…but tonight was amazing. It started out as a usual evening at Xen, with lessons at 7 plus till nine. The belly dancing lesson with Yanqing was physically challenging….isolation is a killer…I probably would ache all over tomorrow, esp the [...]
