On Malaysia Day evening, we were still hard at work. The Amazing Sri Nibong Hunt had concluded that noon and we had Jay mark the answer sheets and by evening, we were excited about announcing the winners. In fact, all 11 teams were going to walk home with their prizes!
For the winners, we had Penang Passion books, bread hampers from Penang Adventist Bakery, yoga mats, twister boards, skincare hampers from La Herballe, towels and bags from Priority Fitness, travel and accommodation vouchers from Langkawi Online, photography voucher from MizzStudio, Vietnamese coffee and more.
That night was going to be different. Well, it should be as I was the organizing chairperson together with Mandy, another RA Committee. We didn’t want the same-old, same-old type of the entertainment and performances so I invited Michelle, a friend, to come perform her pole dance for us all. Yes this was a community event but hey, who has ever seen a pole dance live? Well, at least now the residents of Taman Sri Nibong have!
The amazing part was, Michelle brought a portable pole. Everyone were curious what the pole was for. Even more amazing, the pole and its base could be squeezed into a Kelisa!
She’s an extremely talented young lady who is also a yoga teacher. I did arrange for her act to be the highlight of the night and true enough, it was! Of course, all the men were interested. She was sexy and the moves were more acrobatic than suggestive!
After Michelle’s routine, we started to announce the winners of that morning’s hunt.
Following that the night’s programmes continued: line dancing, lucky draws and songs.
The night was definitely capped when Conny arrived past 10. She was supposed to be the second last act of night but turned out that she became the last item and what an item she was! She got everyone together to dance the zumba, a new fitness craze which marries hot samba music with energetic aerobic moves with a lot of hip and butt movements. It was such a fun routine that we got her to teach us more.
Was it a tiring night? It was! Would I do it again? Not really. As the hunt organizer, I had to source for sponsors who contributed more than RM4,500 worth of prizes, put up announcements in the newspaper, get my team to design the banners, do trial runs of the event, coordinate everything, collect forms, answer phone inquiries and lots more. It’s not something I would like to do as it’s a stressful job!
Mini projects like these take up a lot of time and time is something I must guard zealously from now on. Far too many things seem to come my way which is good but in a way I have to be totally upfront when I really know a no is better than a yes.
