Refine & Define 2008 – The Dance Space

Oh, if I have not mentioned it before… now I’m telling you.

I sent in a form for the Men’s Health Refine & Define Challenge 2008. And I am selected as one of the 20 finalist. Woohoo! The challenge is to turn me into a real man’s man! X^D

So dancing is the third module out of 10. Off I went to The Dance Space in Plaza Damas on Saturday morning. The Dance Space is actually quite small lah. It’s just one big square room with wooden parque floor and a counter.

The Dance Space. That’s Mie posing for this shot. I put the magazine there simply for promotional purposes, and also to give the photo a sense of context, it is a Men’s Health event after all. flickr

I forgot who our dance instructor’s name. She’s a Thai and she taught us hip-hop… Aiseh, what is this lah. I don’t even go clubbing, so hip-hop basically doesn’t mean much to me. I was hoping that they might teach us some latin dance or some simple waltz. But I guess no guy will want to hold another guy’s hand and waist in a waltz. Ah well… hip-hop it is.

Contrary to my initial believe, hip-hop is actually not easy. I had the chance to learn a few steps from a friend last time. I just can’t synchronise my hands with my legs with my hips with my butts. Either I looked like a rusted robot with jammed gears, or a bone-less octopus squirming when I dance hip-hop or go to the clubs. I like dancing, but I’m no good at it.

I stood at the front. Why? Because I’d rather face the dance instructor’s back than to have 19 guys’ ass poking my eyes. I was just right behind the the instructor… and a few times she jokingly [& sarcastically] mentioned not to stare at her ass. Ooops, I must have overdone it. X^D

That’s Alif feigning exhaustion. flickr

After 2 hours, everyone was tired. There was a lot of movement, ass grinding, booty shaking & blur faces. If you want aerobic exercise the fun way, take hip hop lessons. We split and I went off for lunch with Alif, Dixon & Amran.

    hey cool! congratulations on becoming the top 20! and orh your photography skills has improved alot! cool yea..did u get any new gears?

    Thanks. If you bring your camera everywhere you go, you’ll improve. Not to mention the big gun is always the centre of attraction. Guys can’t seem to keep their hands off it, girls can’t seem to keep their faces away. Suddenly you’re everyone’s friend. X^D

    What more, letting n00bs handle my camera and shooting actually yields interesting photos. Of course, I also want my face to be in some of the photos lah.

    New gears? I got myself the SB-600 flash, an OTG back-up hard disk and a GorillaPod! (I’ll blog about them later). I’m starting to drool over ultra wide lenses. Still can’t afford it yet.

    Eh, you’ll be working in the US? Nice! Tell me more about it.

    Hah hah! The D300. No Nikon user can resist that. I guess I’ll have to pass and wait for D500. X^D
    I’d rather save that money for the ultra wide angle.

    I have the FX08. As you said… it’s a crappy little creature. I’d rather use my camera phone.

    You’re engaged! I’m so sad… 1 less pretty girl for me to tackle. X^D
    Not to mention one less friend in Malaysia.
    In any case… congratulations! I guess we’ll still be keeping in touch despite you being in US. Will I get to attend your wedding dinner?
