I can’t hold in the excitement any longer!
This weekend, I checked one thing off my bucket list by participating in my very first flashmob!!! Flashmobs, parades, and broadway shows. All up there in my book.
I wasn’t any good, didn’t know any of the dance moves, can’t dance at all anyway, and after watching the video am slightly embarrassed at all the money my parents spent on dance lessons, but had an absolute blast anyway.
For those of you that want the details:
What: Flashmob goodness. It was a montage of Kylie Minogue songs because she was supposed to be performing next weekend and all participants were going to get free tickets as part of the F1 Concert Series. *See note at bottom for follow up
Where: KLCC (one of the huge local malls) and home of the Twin Towers
When: Saturday afternoon (practice was before that, but we skipped most of it to go and eat a lovely lunch. In hindsight, maybe a little less lunching and a little more practicing would have been a better choice.)
Who: A bunch of Malaysians that could totally rock out the dance moves were in the front of the group. My friends Jenn and Rebecca invited me (or I invited myself, the lines are a little blurred on that one) and a bunch of their lovely Irish, English and Australian friends were also members of the “Kylie Dance Squad.” (That’s what they called us.) We stood in the back, but were still quite noticeable.
Weather: Sunny 90 million degrees
Get ready to laugh your bootie off and wish you were here! (I would like to point out that I think the third and final selection was where I really started to shine. Let me know if you think I should head straight to New York City.)
What about you guys? Have you ever done a flashmob? Do you want to? If you know of one that we can do, can you call me, please?!
I might be addicted.
