Orchestra performances at Queenbay Mall

Both of you had orchestra performances at Queenbay Mall on 23.1.2009.
Dad and mom often rush through tasks, trying to get them done, trying to finish as much as we can each day. Afternoon session tution ends at 6p.m. We started our ride at 6.40p.m with Yogie and Shi Wah.
Arrived safely at our destination at 7.25p.m. Chinese New Year around the corner.
Everything is getting crowded.Luckily we were not stuck in a terrible traffic jam.
All participants required to wear black pants and red tops.
Both of you kept busy setting up the instruments on the stage. All getting started in performance.

Lydia, you played saxophone while Priscilla played the violin. 
A singing group sang the Chinese New Year songs when the music started. Most of them were women all aged 50 or over at the time. They still had a good voice.
Within one minute the raw candy was transformed into an animal.
The decoration at Queenbay Mall really impressed us.
What a unique Chinese New Year's decoration. Dad snapped lots of photos.
We were glad to watch a candy-blower blew candy animals at the stall.
The candy man boiled sugar and water until it thickens, took a dollop and kneaded it. One end had a long tail with a pinhole into which he blew, turning it around so as to fashion it into the required shape.
We also watched peep show performances. An exhibition of pictures or objects viewed through a small hole or magnifying glass. Each view costs RM 5.
The peep- show musician sang while the show was carrying on.

We did some shopping at Jusco before went home. Four of you talked and joked freely during the car ride.

We were having Bak Kut Teh together. Bak Kut Teh is one of our favorite local dishes.

Girls, by the time we reached home, it was already the middle of the night.Lydia and Priscilla, Happy arrival of Chinese New Year's Day.
