Singapore Dance Delight Vol. 4

Sorry~ Here's my long overdue post for the Singapore Dance Delight Vol. 4. 
And also my camera batt was flat. Most of the photos are from my iPhone5. A little grainy.

Presented by F&N and organised by O School, the 4th edition for Singapore Dance Delight Vol. 4 is held on Saturday 13th April 2013 at Kallang Theatre.

Dance Delight is created by Mitsuhiro Harada a.k.a Machine. Machine started 'Osaka Dance Delight' in 1992 which created a new wave of street dance culture from Osaka and is the origin of all dance delight competitions.

This is the fourth year Dance Delight has been held in Singapore. It's a real pleasure to be invited by CK & CF to join them in this event. And of course, not forgetting to thank F&N and O School for the opportunity to be part of this spectacular dance competition.

Singapore Dance Delight Vol. 4 kicked off with host, Sheikh Haikel welcoming the judging panel on stage, who showed off their dynamic dance moves individually.

Here's the judging panel for the night.

  • Machine, the creator of Dance Delights and the leader of the legendary break dance team 'Angel Dust Breakers' in Japan.
  • Ryan Tan, Singapore well known dancer in Hip-hop, Janzz, Lyrical and Contemporary.
  • Loose Joint, Jamel Brown, a Hip Hop dancer from New York with 30 years of experience
  • Madoka from Japan
  • Tony Tzar from Washington D.C. 
Scoring System (Taken off from the official website of Singapore Dance Delight Vol. 4)
  1. Each judge would score every crew on a total of 100.
  2. With the scores, the ranking of crews will be derived from each judge. If crews are tied in score, ranks will be taken. 
  3. Each crew's total rank will derived form the summation of ranking given by the judges.
  4. Crew with the lowest total rank score will emerge as the top crew. 
  5. In case of a tie, a vote will be done among the judges.
The evening was filled with energetic and dynamic dance moves from 22 crews of dancers from Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand and Philippines. And loads of laughter too, with a very entertaining host. In the 3 hour event, there's a short break in the middle. And only then do I realise, the theatre is fullhouse. The theatre is filled with loads of supporters and future promising dancers, waiting for their chance to be on that stage.

During the break, CF and I went downstairs to collect our flipbook. We recorded an "animated clip" of us having fun before the start of the event. Cute right?

We also quenched our thirst with F&N drinks. They have lots of dispenser bottles around on both levels. (Sidetrack. I saw the dispenser for sale online before, should I get one for myself too? =P )

There are F&N badges for memento & social media coverage too. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram. #fnnsdd4

After the break, the event continued with the remaining crews showing off their fabulous moves.

When all the crews had their turn on stage, it's time for the panel of judges to agonise over the results. While the judges deliberate, two DJs spun music and Sheikh also "invited" dancer-audiences on stage to show off their moves.

Finally the wait is over. The results are out.

Congratulations to all Singapore Dance Delights Vol. 04 winners!

Kaohsiung : Fo Guang Shan 佛光山

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After a much complicated directions online on how to get to the Fo Guang Shan 佛光山, we decided to take the KRT to Zuoying Station and then take the bus, 哈佛快線. Exit the Zuoying KRT Station and wait at Bus Platform 2 for the 哈佛快線 to come. There is a time schedule for the bus to arrive. Each bus trip cost NTD70 per person. You can use the iPass to tap in and out for the journey.

Alternatively, based on online reviews, you can take bus 8010/8011 at 高雄客运. It is just opposite our hotel and behind 国光客运. However, it is not recommended by the staff there as it is a much longer time and distance, that's why she recommended us to take the 哈佛快線 at Zuoying.

Here's the bus. We waited quite some time as we were early.

Here's the bus schedule.

We have reached Fo Guang Shan 佛光山. A little overwhelmed by the map. It's a huge place. And since it's on a hill, there are alot of slopes and stairs. Just thinking about it make my knees go weak.…

Kaohsiung : Food and more food

Besides eating at Night Markets, we also went to some recommended places online and on TV. These places are not that near from the KRT and need some working out on feet.

BO 雪球餅乾咖啡館 BO Schneebälle Cafe 新光三越高雄左營店3F | Shin Kong Mitsukoshi (Zuoying) level 3

We had accidentally went past this cafe in Zuoying Shin Kong Mitsukoshi 星光三越. The hubby saw a TV show recommending this special biscuit ball where you need to hammer it to eat in smaller pieces. We tried it as it was quite fun. We had the chocolate flavoured one.

The huge wooden hammer in shop to break the biscuit ball into pieces.

I think we hammered too much... Haha the ball became overly small pieces. It's delicious.

You can buy as gifts. If I remember correctly, three balls into one container.

I am pretty regretful that I did not buy more to bring home. I like the taste of it a lot. And I am missing it so much. Ahh.. Delicious.

臺鐵便當 Railway Bento Hubby's one of the must eat whenever we are …

Kaohsiung : Cijin Island 旗津島

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After visiting The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and the Takao Railway Museum 打狗鐵道故事館 in the morning, our following itinerary was to head to the Cijin Island 旗津島. By the way, if we were able to travel around on bicycles, it would be much easier. So, do rent a bicycle to travel around if you are able to cycle. Especially for The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and on Cijin Island 旗津島.

About 10-15 minutes walk from the Orange line KRT station, Sizihwan Station 西子灣站 (O1), you will be able to reach the ferry terminal. Follow the signs (鼓山渡轮站) on the lamp posts to get to the ferry terminal.

 The ferry also ferries passengers travelling with bicycles and motorcycles. For us, without any cycles, it costs NTD15 per person per trip. You can pay in cash or iPass.

The ferry ride is only about 5 to 10 minutes. Cijin Island 旗津島 is just opposite, separated by the waters. The ferry terminal looks nicer on the island.

There's a temple on the island. Cihhou Godde…
