And so Imu Cup 2006 is over. No more tension, no more squabbles, no more tears over losses, no more nonsensical cheering whatsoever.
Oh wait, did I start on the wrong footing? Sorry, I think I made it sound like a sad event. It is not. Oops, wrong call. Paiseh. Start again..
Okay, gotta admit this. Imu cup was COOL! We really had lots of fun cheering for our batch. I know I had fun cheering my frenz on, even though they didn't always win. (Actually, I have a sneaking suspicion that my sem was the last.. are we?) Ah, nevermind...
Get this: This is NOT about winning. It's about doing your best for your batch, giving everything you got, pushing yourself to your best potential. If you managed to pick a few gold medals along the way, good for you. But if not, at least you did your best. It can be about having fun too
and making new frenz and showing great sportmenship. [okay, maybe the last part was pushing it. Shld cancel it. Coz that is so not what that happened. Aikz.]
Anyway, let's see, our batch got a few bronzes, one silver and two golds. It's not exactly the best, but I'm proud of my frenz that gave their all and did their best. (^o^)v We got gold for snooker and chess. Two relatively low-profile sports. But heck, at least we had some golds. hehe.
Oh ya, one bronze that should receive some commendable blogging space here. We got bronze for cheerleading!! How cool is that? Tell you guys what, cheerleading is such a cool event! Really an eye-opener for me! (Mutters: Why last time my sch no cheerleading wan.. *pouts*)
Anyway, congrats to M106 cheerleaders! Yayz! And to all the other cheerleaders out there, you all did a great job! All that hard work and commitment, really salute!
Well, to be truthful, I'm slightly surprised that our batch got 3rd place for cheerleading (wait, I'm NOT saying that my batch is no good okay), what I DO mean is that the other batches were really good too, so they all deserved to win.
Let me say what I like about every sem's performances.
Sem 1 - Erm, their pom-pom colours are very nice? Okay, stupid reason. Hmm. They gave a quite good performance as they didn't have enough time to prepare. After the hectic orientation, then they have imu cup! Just that they have some confusion in between during the performance. Other than that, it was ok, I guess. :)
Sem 2 - Hehe. My sem. 2nd runner up! Wee~ I like the "musical box" part. Very cool and creative. And the part using the Tokyo Drift song, nice! - my ringtone currently too. :P Heard that they lost a pair of pom-poms at the very last minute. So they cudnt do some steps using pom-poms. Sadcase.
Sem 3 - Ah... Nice! Totally lurve their martial-art-styled moves! Believe it or not, they did drunken styled moves according to Jay Chow's "Huo Yuan Jia"! Uber cool!
Sem 4 - Nice formation! I feel that they have a more cheerleading feel in their routines.. They did full extension pyramids and tosses. Very dangerous so bravo to them!
Sem 5 - Cool too. 1st runner up! Liked the part where all the guys did the breakdance! Very bergaya also.. They have some very cool formations that I've never seen b4. Thumbs up!
Pharmacy - Champion! My god, they totally moved like a single entity, even when changing places. Really a jaw-dropping performance leh. They also really know how to create an atmosphere! Nice~
The overall Imu Cup goes to sem 5, while the Elephant Cup (for the best supporters) goes to pharmacy. But quite obvious for the latter, coz they combine all 5 sems together to make 1 team. Hmm.
Okla, enuf crapping about that. Tired ade.. Gonna stop here. Just wanna congrats the winners and for those who didn't win, well at least it was a good game, right? There's always next year, M106s!! Go go go!
PS: Hmm. Feel like joining basketball next year. Hmm. We shall see. And a bit tempted to join cheerleading. But dunno whether I'm good enuf to qualify onot. haha.
PPS: Can't believe that I fell sick a few days ago. :( Just becoz I went swimming a fortnight before in the vista B swimming pool. I think I caught an ear infection then. Arggh. I presented with pain in right ear, back pain, sorethroat, low-grade fever, malaise and felt feverish... What the heck. How come I'm clerking myself?! So funny. Anyway, feel better now. Thanks to the antibiotics and paracetamol. Seems to be working. *Phew*
