What's up, people! I just won the "Show Your Moves" online hip-hop dancing competition organized by the U. S. Embassy Kuala Lumpur. (Which was CRAZY!!) I got myself RM1500 Nike gift voucher and a private lesson with Hip-Hop Master Yung Chris.
So, that morning started with a ride with Chris from Hotel Fortuna. Thanks to Mr. Chew from the Embassy for giving us a ride to the Street Nation Dance Studio at Sunway. During the ride, we talked about my Global UGRAD program, trains, Malaysia, weather, and politics. (Yea, I know. Pretty... random topics)
To the dancing part... I was really nervous and I couldn't really think straight at that time. Chris was a cool guy, he explained to me dancing is like problem solving. It's a whole body and mind motion, which translates into dancing. It was an 1-hour session and I really learned a lot from him.
I want to thank the Embassy for the opportunity and Yung Chris for the advices on Hip-hop Fundamentals. Peace!
