  1. I cannot dance and have no interest in it. But I will go and support you because you are Sockie.

    I will go with my bare hands. Anything drooping or dropping let me know.

  2. Girlfren Socks

    Wishing you all the best in this virgin event of yours.

    Am mulling over whether or not to go back just to support you even though I don’t line dance but find it absolutely elegant to watch.

    In the event that I do, I will join bare hands man; no, no darling, not to support the way he plans to. Kekekekee. You’ll find me very laid back and smiling away whilst drinking the mineral water, kakakaka and enjoying the jam.

    Will keep you posted.

  3. Sockie, my tutor
    How can line dance event without me, its my blood and my soul, also my teh-C. So count me, must! Thanks.

    Lai Fong,
    Buy me a Teh-C cum kaya toast, I remind you all the dance you have learnt from Sockie, Ok, If not Ok, I buy you also can, Just want to see you again. haha.

  4. Sockie,I know you are virgin,

    me comming to support you,can I request ‘Wild Wild West’ it’s an old country song,love this dance..


  5. Lai Fong #1, Karen #3, Gingko #4, Ani Giri #9 – I have put in Electric Slide for all of you and Wild Wild West for Eileen #8

    TS #2 – Your coming to support ‘because I am Sockie’ maketh my day and GT #3 if you fly here for this event then that will double maketh my day…and I have my ‘Ah Ko’ Cat Ho coming with her bare hands too….what can I say ….muach muach muach

    Andrew #6 – Of course I will not allow you to miss this event….need you to hold some of the members hands (or should I say legs) to lead some of the dances

    I am in the process of doing the dance list and had put in quite a few easy dances and will put this up hopefully by the end of the week once it’s finalised…so meanwhile line is still open for requests


  6. Hello Sockie (may I call you this?) I will tag along with Annie and look forward to meeting Yatsing (hope she remembers me – have been hibernating since last time I met her). I love LD – inked this in my calendar oreidi.

  7. Hi Lina #14
    Never learn ‘La Luna’ and ‘Back in my world’. Check from the youTube, both dance seems not easy and quite nice

    – La Luna (64 counts)
    – Back in my world (32 counts, with 2 restart and one tag)

    Will try to learn, hope can do them in the jam. Happy line dancing

    Hi Sockie
    Will you teach these two dances in your class?

  8. Hi Sockie
    Please register me. Had stopped L-Dancing since 4 years ago. Hope I still remember some of the dances. Can I request for ‘Chill Factor’ if there are other line dancers doing it? If not, don’t worry about it.

    Ya Lina

  13. Hi Sockie
    I am coming. I liked nuts – all kinds.
    Will come with a bottle in one hand and look see what kinds I can get hold of, in the other.

  14. Sockie, can you let me know where I can join you for the practice. Been out of touch for 6 years oreidi but I think I still got the basics right. See you soon.

  15. Hi Sockie#20

    Will work hard these few days to complete the work in hand so as to spare time to attend your classes

    Can I come on Mon and Wed, miss the line dance a lot.

  16. Haha Hou Chong

    So, you’re into NUTS. Great!

    If your bottle is grape juice, better check if it’s allowed.

    Ahh……your other hand is also bare. More ‘supportive’ hands.

  17. Hi all,

    Just received a call from the CC that there is another event on the same day so will ahve to push back the Jam by an hour…so we will start from 3 to 7pm instead. For those who need some walk through before the jam we can meet at say 2.30pm and I will try to find a place to run through some easy dances while the sound system is being set up.

    Janie, Audrey, Susan and Hou Chong – Thanks for your support :0)

    For those who wants to come to my classes for revision, my classes are on :-

    Yio Chu Kang CC from 7.30 to 9.30pm – intermediate dances

    Toa Payoh Central CC – some easy dances and a few more challenging ones

    Kovan CC – 9.00 to 10.30am – easy dances…slow and steady
    Cheng San CC – 7.00 to 8.30 – easy dances
    – 8.30 to 10pm – fast, furious and crazy

    If there are more ppl who wants to do some revision other than the days above, you find the ppl and place, I will be there if my time allows.

    Audrey #20 – Since you are new to LD, I would suggest you come to Cheng San CC on Thursday to start off first.

    Susan #32 and Andrew #33 – you pick whatever days that suits your timing, the doors will always be open :0)

    Eileen, I will see you on Wednesday :0)

    Caroline, I will put in My Little Runaway and you can sing along when we dance :0)

    GT, Caroline, Janie and Hou Chong – I think it’s ok to bring whatever liquid to the hall so long as it is does not explode in our faces hahahaha

    Ah Kou Cat #27 – You better bring your bedmnton racket to chope your seat cuz GT still not confirm if she is coming and Karen girl, girl back out liao unless you can whack her with your racket and drag her there :0(


  18. Yay! Sockie Wan Shui! I love that song. OK remember to give me a mic (jus kidding – about the mic thingy).

    Hou Chong

    I will bring my NUTS and Baileys. Someone bring the ice can? And glasses. Dont like the plastic cups. You can open the NUTS with your free hand or your teeth also can.

    Dear Tender Cow

    When you come, you bring your NUTS too?

    Janie Dear

    What are you bringing?


  19. Ehhh Yatsing #23…..

    Susan called and you answered but never say if you are coming or not lei and I don’t want to make and “ASS” out of “U” and “ME” …..ahh please don’t get me wrong and just in case anyone should make a wrong assumption……. I am not calling you or me an ass hor hahahahaha


  20. Girlfren K

    Backed out? Here I am, happily thinking I’ll be able to kill a hundred things with one tit as many of my ‘other halves’ have registered and to meet others at one event.

    What gives? Something more sexciting than us?


  21. Baby Goat

    Will certainly bring NUTS (me) kekekekee and the real nuts for all our pleasure. Will also bring my grape juice subject to my trip confirmation.

    As to your glasses, think the CC will provide? Kinda difficult for anyone to lug fragiles to the event.

    Lots to catch up and would like for a group of us to have dinner after the event.


  22. Hi Sockie
    Please register me for the Line Dance. I hope to join you at Kovan CC this coming Thursday morning, can??? Thanks.

    Girlfren Audrey Wong…I am joining you…

  23. Dear Janie Sweetie @ #38 and Baby Tender Cow @ #40

    K we are ready for the night.

    Will try to bring some glasses for your grape juice.

    Dear HC @ #44

    You are welcome and I am sure you will enjoy them very much.


  24. Hi Sockie

    Please put me in for this event. Only know the very old line dances but would definitely enjoy the country and new line dancing songs. Will be there at 2.30 to brush up some steps.

  28. Very busy downloading the 22or so that I learned before. But dun mind the new ones – the more the merrier! Actually it’s really good for body tone – dont need those stressful types at the gym LOL.

  29. Lily #56

    Feel free to drop by before your classes, we typically starts around 7.45pm unless I am tied down by my work. Anyway some of the students will come in around 7.30pm and Roy will usually do some revision with them before my arrival :0)

    Hi Susan #57

    Hope you can learn a few more dances before the jam so that you can ‘workout’ more……good for the body and soul…one get to do some excercise with nice(depending on one’s taste) music……. and best thing is we do not have to sit and wait for any guy to lead us to the dance floor and for the giys who are shy, there is no need to sweat over how to ask a girl for a dance hahahahahaha

    BTW thank you all for the payment for the revision classes and this is good for all revision from now till the day of the jamboree …… there are no freebies from the CC so this is the least I can offer to all the supporters ie only one payment for as many revision session as you can attend :0)


  30. Hi Sockie

  37. A gentle reminder to those who wants to do some warm-up or last minute revision of some easy dances, I will be at the CC at 2.30pm to do some walk through.

    For those who have not indicated your interest but are free tommorrow you are all welcome to join us.

    So far 70 tickets had been sold and together with those who have registred but not bought the tickets yet, we should be expecting about 100 pax plus some walk-ins too.

    Reat well and get ready for 4 hours of non-stop music and dances


  38. Aiyo Tian Soo

    Janie had to go out of town for some business, GT could not make it cos she is overseas and I brought this big bottle of Bailey’s, glasses and two packets of groundnuts but you were no where in sight. I had to lug that bottle home cos there was no one to share the drink with. Next time, no more already lah!

  39. Congratulations Sockie on your successful event. I enjoyed dancing to the music even if it wasn’t line dance that I was doing. And the good company of my buddies.


  40. Thank You Caroline and A big thank you to all who turned up at the Line Dance jam today…I had a great time but my feet were sooo tired from the dancing and hope all of you had a good time too.

    We had a big turn out of 150 people and I was very happy to see quite a few old friends who came to support the function.

    A special note of thanks to Dolly and Lily who volunteered to help out at the registration counter…you 2 are great…don’t know what I will do without your help :0)

    Tian Soo, I was so tired and about to drop but you were not there to hold me lei and poor Caroline has to lug back all the stuff because there was no one to drink wih her tsk tsk tsk

    Till the next jam……


  41. Poor Baby Goat

    So sweet of you to lug the huge Baileys and glasses back and forth.

    Glad that you enjoyed yourself. Saw your pretty pic; getting hotter each time. Drool……..

    Have a great and safe trip, darling. Mwah.

  42. Girlfren Socks

    Congratulations on a great turnout.

    What a pity bare hands was not there when you needed him. Go for a foot massage tomorrow and go ahhhh……

  43. Hi Sockie,

    Thkyou so much for organising this event and everyone has enjoyed very much. Glad to meet up with Ann Giri, MIA for a long time.

    Cheers, well done.

  44. Hi Sockie

    You are most welcome. Dolly and I will always help out a friend in need, be it last minute or otherwise.

    Noted that you refrained from posting 2 other names here who had also helped because they prefer not to be mentioned.

    Congratulations on a great turnout for your 1st jam session.

    Dolly & Lily

  45. Sockie

    A thousand apologies to you and others who had expected me.

    I was violated by a Urologist and he told me to stay at home and enjoy his handiwork. Not even to laugh out loud.

  46. Carly #74

    Don’t finish the Bailey’s at home. We can have it together when you come back. Good with your Pepper Crabs. We can get our hands dirty.

  47. Well, TS, don’t look at it as a violation; learn from Terence – he absolutely loves it!

    My days are numbered……..

  48. You are welcome Sockie Dear.

    Oh Tender Cow, wished you were here. Hahaha! trying to get hotter and see if anyone wants to catch this young at heart hottie kekeke! So looking forward to my hols and will think of you when I am dancing with some hot bod spaniards :) Mwah! Mwah to you too Babe.

    TS, OK lah so long as I dont have to lug the bottle around. Black pepper crab with Baileys will start a fire heeee!


  49. Hi Sockie

    Just wanna say, it was a wonderful gathering. I managed to re-learn a few of my favourite dances namely Island in the Stream and meeting of friends and meeting new members.

    I had so much fun that I was on mc for the next 2 days hence the late thank you. am still recovering from the virus infection. Sudah Tua lah.

    Kam siah, looking forward to the next session, but must chiak poh first
