Day 4 (Dec 23) - LK Christmas Party. Fran, a hideously talented young dancer backed out from doing the invocational dance on the account of an injury he got 3 days before the party. Being one of the very few serious numbers, "Silent Love Runs Deep" (choreographed by Mamu, performed by Belle & me) was moved to the beginning of the program. Though short, the piece was well-received by our colleagues and was applauded generously. Thanks, Mamu! And thanks Belle for doing the piece with me despite the very limited number of rehearsals. Can't wait for the full version to be choreographed.
Another show-stopper. The trockadero-ish version of Mamu's Ballet Les Femmes, performed by (what Dan calls) Big Girls' Society--- Chris and me.
Modesty aside, this number by Chris, Dan & me (what remains of the Swarovskis), and our respective partners was much-anticipated. The cha-cha-cha, choreographed by Nick.
The Dan & Rye Show goes glam in the annual mock awards.
Day 5 (Dec 24) - Noche Buena. A very dear friend, Gil, flew in at 9pm of the 24th and joined our little Noche Buena at Ayi's.
The embutido, keso de bola, garlic mushrooms and fiesta ham were so disgustingly yummy, we couldn't stop munching. In less than 15 minutes, we were too stuffed, we hardly had any more space in our humongous guts for hotpot and dessert. Ben, Jojo and I decided to take a break. With their SLRs and a saber sword, we headed down to the parking area and decided to do a little photo shoot, which didn't really last long. It was freezing outside and in just a few clicks, my nips were perky like crazy and my jaw was gritting like that of a madman.
