After a painful EMD rehearsal I had dinner with Mason at Long John Silver's. Well as long as I'm full... Bought Crispy Chicken from Shihlin (I think its spelt like this) Taiwan Street Snacks intending to bring it home for my family but I met them on the way. My bro was getting Teachers' Day presents at 8:30pm.
Some model student. Anyway we hung around while he quickly picked some reasonable and some totally irrelevant presents for his 8 or 9 teachers. Went to check with Singtel and my contract is expiring soon whippee on 20th September. There are a couple of budget Samsung clam phones right now... $98 is pretty much all I can take if I want a marginally better phone, unless my parents decide to chip in.
Anyway once we had finished we were making our way back home when outside Tampines Mall we slowed down to have a look at a couple of budget magic tricks. The PRC woman wasted no time in demonstrating to us. She hauled up a fine chain and a medium sized ring about 4cm in diameter.
你看你看... [Here watch this...]
这个,和这个... [This... and this...]
She held the ring and let the chain down through the ring. She dropped the ring.
With a painfully loud cling the ring slid straight through and onto the floor. Apparently the chain would have by some insane law of physics snaked up and wound up tight to catch the ring. I think. My bro and I turned away and doubled up giggling while walking to the traffic light to catch up with our waiting parents.
Teachers' Day tomorrow... We'll see how it goes, either I will be enjoying with Nicholas and Isaac and Wenhao and maybe NCK at Seoul Garden like always, or maybe I will be helping the cast of After the Dazzle. Very promising play, with potentially good actors. I wish it to excel in EMD. Instead of slapstick dominating the whole damn performance. My brother just realised that he also has a performance on Friday evening, so we can't have a family dinner in honour of my mom's birthday. Therefore I shall waste no time in ordering a ticket for myself for Friday night's EMD performance while the two will have candlelight dinner in Thimbakthu.
