Last Friday night December 14th, HYZD held our annual Christmas party themed Lucky Snowball. Gathered together, we spent a glorious night with HYZD family. It’s a special occasion for celebration and reunion for our teachers and staff.
More than 30 HYZD teachers joined us in this well-organized event combined with popular technological and fashionable elements at the moment. We sing, we dance, and we have fun! I’m pretty sure I am not the only one who feels memories of the night still linger in the mind. Now let’s get on the time machine and revisit the night again.
The party nearly reached its climax during the talent show. Tim Williams is the first performer to stand under the spotlight. He shared with us his personal story---Crazy for Bakery. Tim baked traditional Christmas cookies, hoping to bring back some taste from home. After all, food always jogs memories buried deep inside us.
Next from Dearbhla Smith we listened to What Goes Around Comes Around. Her beautiful voice surely gives some new flavor to this once hit song.
Under careful preparation, Aganathan Maistry presented his new stand-up comedy Something about the Word. If you ever heard the show, you would know what the word is and what a good ass performance it is.
Carl-Michael Edeling’s Fun with Chains is an amazing stunt, which earned him a lot of “wows”. It certainly requires countless practice and efforts. Such a shame we don’t have fire for the fire dance.
All the performances are spectacular and marvelous. The hard decision on awards thus fell on the votes from audience. Congratulations to Nthabiseng and Riana, Aga, and Tim for winning first, second and third prize respectively.
During the game session I Know Your Humming, our teachers and HYZD staff teamed up for the correct song names. Namely, teachers listen to popular Chinese songs, hum them out and HYZD staff compete for the fastest answer. Then next round HYZD staff do the humming and our teachers guess. It’s extremely challenging considering no lyric is allowed and it’s just very hard to remember the title of famous songs. Even you know both English and Chinese can barely help. But this is exactly the funny part of this game. You can see the participants all rack their brains trying to decipher the secret code in the humming. Everyone knitted their brows while the answer was just on the tip of the tongue. When the answer was unveiled, the “ah ha!” moments were hilarious.
From the beginning, a piece of classic Bohemian Rhapsody from Queen ushered in a number of old golden memories. Time and time again, we are amazed by the magic power inherent to music notes. Singing together opens our heart and melts the distance, forging a sense of community. We express our soul when we sing, and in music we find harmony.
