This year the CNY Lion and Dragon dance celebration started on Jan 29, 2012 at Park West. The drummers is lesser this year and more girls playing the drums.
The kids eating their McDonald and sitting at a nice spot to watch the Lion dance.
The first show is the two lions dancing. Wow! The MP Foo Mee Har came to Park West. Well Done! This is two years in a row that there is an MP visit during CNY out of the 10 yeaer I stayed there. Later talk to her see what she says.
A lion roar and jump into the sky.
And Huat ah!
Very nicely done.
Next is the Dragons.
Displayed wonderful coordinations. This is their dance this year as it is a water dragon year.
And they bow to MP. Now, you know why you want to become MP, you get the first row VIP seat. :)
The guys are making a dragon.
Huat ah! The water dragon. (looks more like fire dragon)
Its the Lion throwing sweets and candy time.
The kids all went to picked up the sweets.
And Huat ah!
And about the front row VIP seat, you also get to hug the lion. Huat ah!
How fortune that Kay Kay picked up an orange thrown by the Lions... Yipee... Huat ah!
Finally, the handshake and chit chat.
MP: How old is your kid?
Boon: 5+ (6 years old)
MP: Oh, that is great, he can go to Nan Hua next year!
Boon: Not really. We have to go ballot.
Boon: The headmaster rejected our volunteer applications 4 times.
Boon: There are too many people staying far far away also come and do volunteer work. But my kids is walking distant to school.
MP: OK. I tell you what. There is a method you can get your kids to Nan Hua.
Boon: Oh? Really?
MP: Yes. Join the Grassroot. Get the applications form from the grassroot.
Boon look to me, smile.
Ken: But I am not a Singaporean "yet"! I am a PR.
MP: Yes, you can still join.
Ken: Huh? Sure or not?
MP called to assistant and ask, "Can he join the grass root?"
Some guy: "Yes, can!"
MP: So, you go see him, the next meeting is Mar 1, and be there!
No wonder my wife looks happy in the photo. But are you sure we are in time to do this?
It is very interesting topic where there is a school just 50 meter away from where you stay and you cannot even get into the school as you need to ballot with people who stay 2 MRT stations away and so on. I simply just want my kids to walk to the school and enjoy the childhood life like every one else. The educations systems in Singapore is rather quite interesting. Oh Well, if you cannot win them, I guess, you need to join them. We will make a decision what to do next regarding this. :)
Btw, this year, Kay Kay picture with the Joo Chiat NCMP who happens to be a distant relative.
Huat ah! Everyone!
