Calling All Dancers

Are you ready to challenge yourself to be in a pole dancing contest and become one of the pole star? Here's your chance now. Okay, let me rewind back. *tape rewinding sound*

I was invited by Lola of Viva Vertical to a media meet in the yogitree, The Gardens. It is a cafe that serve food made the healthy way. Meaning no MSG and whatsoever.

We were served some finger food while we're waiting for the briefing to start. The food here is not very salty but yet still taste good. Next time I'll come back to have a try at their menu.

Good news is that the deadline is extended to 9th of May 2009.

There will also be a open audition ...

After the briefing, Rudy and I volunteered ourselves to be in the pole dancing workshop.

Rudy has sweaty palms.

I have to salute Rudy because he was able to to a pole dancing move call the flag while I can't even lift my legs up.

All I can do is this ...

Rudy told me that he's been going to the gym nowadays. I guess I have to work my muscle out too.

Lola told us that Viva Vertical will be conducting classes for kids too. So, don't think pole dancing is erotic or something. It is actually a sport and a lot of muscle and training is needed to be good at it.

Some can even sleep on the pole.

I wonder how the world looks like, upside down?
