First & foremost, let me say that the audience that I have to face every week is a HIGHLY challenging group of neighbourhood (kopi diam) uncles & aunties. i have had really nice aunties & uncles, but somehow, not this group. Secondly, the outdoor non air-condition situation cause me to perspire so much that it is really hard to cling onto the pole. And half the time I find myself gasping for air, but all these I take in my stride.
The 'block' booking was confirmed based on watching my video.So on the first night, I did exactly the same act as in video. The organizer came running shocked and asked why I sang English song. I thought they watched my video? Was told to change to ALL mandarin or dialect songs for the following week's act.
Came second week, I did ALL Mandarin numbers. Feedback--happy with the all-mandarin numbers, BUT how come the pole stunts same as the first night? Huh? Suppose to vary meh? Than how come other singers also can sing the same songs and MC plays the same games? Ok, maybe I didn't attempt ENOUGH stunts due to my sweaty body against the pole. Don't want to argue!
Tonight, I was careful to do ALL Mandarin songs and I ensured that I executed EVERY Pole stunt that I possibly know, even adding some variations to them. Then came the feedback.....Why end the show so fast? So short!
Ok, I WILL do all mandarin songs, vary or perform ALL my stunts and ADD one more song to the next set!
Two more weeks to go, I wonder what next?
