Immediately after we were done, another couple, Judy and Sheree decided to do their own version...Not knowing what to do with theirs, we decided that we could use their picture for an ad:
" Becareful when you choose a pole school. Beware of imitations, sometimes you just can't tell them apart, the fakes will look as good as the originals "

As i was busy, my colleague handled the call and gave directions. My colleague said she was fickle a while said coming now, then changing her mind & said she would come tomorow, until finally she called again to say she was at Bugis and would get here in a cab; for info, Bugis to my studio is only 7mins walk away and we told her that! To prove that she was in a cab, she passed the phone to can driver!
She arrived and loudly announced that she was here to observe how we conduct our classes. I explained that our basic classes had commenced and the next one would be an intermediate level, which would start in about half an hour. She asked about our entire week's sechdule and told me she wanted watch every class of the week before deciding. I told her that would not be necessary, besides the fact some are repetition, she should only observe whatever level she felt she was fit for, since she claimed she had learned the dance form in China before, the country she hailed.
Sometime through observing the class, she demanded that Eunice or I, the former who was conducting a class at that point, exhibit our level of pole skills to her. I told her she could go to our website to watch any amount of videos we had uploaded and it is not appropriate for me to interrupt the class that way. She asked why not as they do this in China. I also told over here, we exercise making appointments, & during the appointment, I would be more than happy to demonstrate for her to decide if i am a worthy instructor. Then she harped on the "sincerity" thing which by now I just wanted her out!
Unyielded, I told my colleague to set up the computer and log on to youtube to show her videos. While I was in the office, I did not realise that she had barged in between the transition of 2 classes to ask Eunice for a demonstration. So rude! Eunice, my ever obliging instructor demonstrated some inverts and this woman "invigilated" her moves with arms crossed. I quickly told the intermediate students to fill and studio and took the opportunity to lead her to my colleague who spent the next half an hour "entertaining" her with videos and chit chat. It helped that my male colleague is quite good-looking la, and I'm sure she was "seduced" into leaving the studio for good when he (my colleague) said he was leaving for the day soon! haha...
Before she left, she told us to give her an assessment and see which level she should join....I told "ya ya, we will call you (dun call us)"!
Today I asked my good-looking colleague what should we do if she were to call again ....colleague #2 and I joked that perhaps all these while, she was trying to get our good-looking colleague to "assess" her...hahahahaha

" A week ago, Farrah said to me 'Am I going to make it?' I said 'Yes, you'll make it. And if you don't, I'll go with you'" O'neal on Fawcett
does reading this bring a tear to you, like it did to me?
Anyway to digress, but not to anything cheerier I have been having really weird dreams lately. One of them was quite morbid.
Few nights ago I dreamt I was caught in a gunfire attack of some sort.......I dreamt that spider friend was separated from me and suddenly from afar I heard him instructing me to lie low amidst the many bodies and play dead. I did that and even found some cloth to cover and shield me, all these while I could hear the gunshots and wondering when it would hit me......thankfully no one kicked me in my sleep or I would have dreamt that i got hit! haha...some consolation there eh?

A few weeks ago, youtube suspended not one, but two of my accounts, i.e. all those videos which took me years to upload...poof....GONE! When I clicked on those links or searched the account names, it either showed up nothing or announced "this account is suspended"
I thought that weird as if they had found anything wrongful with my account or my videos, they would write and advise why and how to stay out of trouble. But to suspend both very different accounts and with different videos? I couldn't help but suspect that it could be some jealous souls who envied the success of some of my videos made a prank or something.
Convinced that that would be the case, I decided not to investigate with youtube, but instead wasted no time in registering new accounts and started some franctic uploading again. To play safe, i even uploaded onto other video portals.
Several weeks later while watching others' videos, I tried my luck searching again and was surprised that my accounts were reinstated! Everything was there! Videos, photos, everything!
Happily I told spider friend "eh, you know what? youtube returned my accounts. Make me waste time registering new ones and uploading them all over"
Spider friend replied " That's why! they suspend you and you upload again. They can't stop you, might as well just let you continue!"
Wallau, I sound so serial!

First check out celestine's combo...I'm so proud of her as she started out this sport to overcome her fear of "dropping back". She even had problems with a backhook spin in the beginning....Look at her now in less than a year.....we (Eunice and I) are so very proud of you.
Then in the extreme I have the other kind of talented students....natural comedienne.. keep watching til the end....... (Note to Meow: yes I have learnt the song & ready to perform, I even have ready backup dancers...so bring on the music...hahaha)

I've become so good at self-taken pictures. Set the camera to 10 secs, run to pole, pose, hold, click!
and if you have time, watch the last part of this video, it's quite funny (people thinking of signing up classes, don't get worried about the stunts in the video, these are very advance moves, beginner moves are just spins and lot easier moves and really fun)
