Firstly, I must apologize for my tardiness in posting this overview of event after 2 days…… Could have been too tired and so need 2 days to recuperate….ha…ha…..nay, just an excuse… that’s all.
Before I go on, let me say a very big "Thank You" to all my working committee, KJ Ronald, the two comperes and our judges for last Saturday’s Talentime held at the Oxford. Hey, you guys were fantastic and a great help ! Without you, the talentime wouldn’t be so successful. I can’t deny that there were little hiccups along the way….. nonetheless, the overwhelming response and fun throughout, was all worthwhile.
For those who have missed the fun, here’s an overview/summary :
We have an overwhelming response of 81 pax registering for this event. Out of that, only 2 did not show up due to personal reason. Thus, we have a 97.5% attendance that night. I must admit all the 16 contestants (7 females & 9 male singers) did their best and performed much better than expected.
Results : 1st runner up : Dan Huang sang "Your Cheating Heart". 2nd runner up was Ronald Wie who gave us a number "Don’t forget to Remember". Caroline Gee who sang "I Only Want To Be With You" was the champion who walked away with 3 prizes. Besides being the best singer, she was also voted the most popular and most comical performer by the audience. Congratulations Caroline. You deserved the winnings !
After the contest, Ronald took in requests from some of them who wanted to sing just for fun. Many were also very sporting when Lily and Ron started their little line-dance jam. Some who are new to line-dance was curious to learn and was following steps instructions from Lily, while others were just enjoying their dance. Eventhough it’s a little disorientated, all were just merely having fun.. Hey, you’ll be surprised that many SHCians were actually young at heart……even though we are known as silverhairs…..he..he..
Next, we have Ron Lai leading us in the "Chicken Dance". As the place cannot accomodate everyone, the group was split into 2 and most did joined in this fun dance. In a way, it helps to warm up everyone as we need the ball rolling for dancing…… and most continued dancing the night away with Ronald’s specially selected music of cha-cha, disco rock, rock & roll and even waltz.
The Talent-time came to a close with Terence giving out the prizes for all the contestants. Everyone of them walk home with something… thanks to all the sponsors.
Lastly, we wish to thank all contestants for their participations and hope to see you again next year. We also wish to thank all those who came for this event….. you make a difference too as without your support and enthusiasm, this Talentime will not turn out to be what it is…..so lively & fun !! We hope to see you guys next year !
The committee wishes everyone happy holidays ahead !!
