practice started at 10am at the studio and we where
invited to a
National Day Appreciation Lunch for performing at the National Day
Dinner on 7 August. After practice walk over next
door to the
comunity centre at 12.30pm when lunch was scheduled. When we reached
the front entrance the guest of honor arrived in his car. So we stood
at the side and applauded when he came out of his car. He was
Mr Mah Bow Tan, the Minister for National Development, who walked over
to us and after a few words asked us if
we could perform at the lunch.
It was going to be close to our scheduled Youth Olympic Games
performance at 4pm today.
When we walked into the lunch hall, cocktails where served and there
was a sushi bar. Food was great but 5 of us had to go back to the
studio next door to get dress and make-up for our command performance
scheduled at 1.30pm after the award ceremony. Coach received a plaque
for the Jumping Jewels performance at the National Day Dinner.
Mr Mah and the others watching where so close making our performance
more exciting to watch. After the the applause we
bid Mr Mah goodbye and rushed back to the studio to packed and took a
taxi to the YOG venue at Suntec Convention Hall.
It was an interesting outing for the Jewels.
