Simon Says: Happy Birthday to Nick Wong, Mike Wong and Lisan.
I got a call from Nicholas of Nuffnang one fine evening, asking me whether I am free on 5th of September 6.30 p.m. before he told me what is it about, I already know what is it all about because I've already planned to use a pack of Clorets Mini Mints to go for the Clorets Amateur Pole Dancing Grand Finale held in Zouk Club, KL on Friday. Turns out I don't have to use the Clorets Mini Mints after all because Nicholas told me that I will get a VIP pass as a blogger with Nuffnang. This is what I've been expecting because I've covered the launching press conference and the finalist introduction press conference of this same event, which were also invitation from Nuffnang.
So, there I was in Zouk Club that night.
Bloggers and media queuing up to register and get the passes. That's Nigel over there always so sensitive to detect a camera is pointing his way.
The crowds is getting warmed up.
The judges which is headed by the Managing Director of Cadbury Confectionery Malaysia. PamSong's colleague is Mr. Lee Szu Hung from McCann-Erickson was one of the judge too.
Let the show begins.
All the 15 finalists came on stage and prepare to dance.
After the introduction dance of the 15 finalists, Liang the MC invited Hannah Tan and Pietro on the stage to perform pole dancing moves that they learned.
It's gaming time for the audiences there. David and Kel Li were two of the volunteers to go up the stage.
They will be playing a game call Catch the Clorets Mini Mints, where the female partner throw the mints and the male partner have to catch it with his mouth while lying flat on the stage. The one pair that catches the most mints is the winner.
While Kel Li haven't a hard time feeding him.
First one to perform is Auto. Combining pole dancing with martial arts, he created a new style of pole dancing.
Next is Frances doing Jazz style pole dancing
Kyetherine is the third to perform with her kinky style pole dancing.
Shan was up after Kyetherine.
Samantha performed in a very eye catching dress.
The sixth to come out is Lili. She got quite a lot of supporter there that night.
See what I mean? Her supporters even made a banner with her name on it.
Vyvyn is the second last to perform that night.
Last but not least Zoe came out and play with fire.
There was a short break after that for the judges to decide the top 5 and Liang invited some of the celebrity that was there that night to play a game of pole dancing with the audience.
We then have the lead trainers from Viva Vertical to perform the advanced pole dancing moves.
The top 5 is Auto, Zoe, Sam, Lili and Kyetherine. They have to so 1 part eight steps move shown first by Lola of Viva Vertical and another 1 part free form.
