Our boys learnt some exciting skills to improve their confidence and proficiency in acting on stage. Besides, students were instructed to put on makeup for clowning. A lot of our boys were reluctant at first, but once they started to do it, they're all engaged in it! Our boys might still be far away from being professional actors given such a brief learning time, but their getting out of their comfort zone touched us all. While they have learnt to be bold on stage with their character, they also learnt to respect the profession of acting.
Also, another highly anticipated location Gardens by the Bay did not fail to impress us all, as expected. The scale of such enchanting gardens and the messages they want to send out were memorable. We may not be plant lovers, but it was difficult not to be attracted by the carefully designed gardens and the endless views of beautiful foliage.
The Marina Bay Sands Observation Deck got swapped with tomorrow's Chinatown. So, we had a convenient arrangement of visiting the Chinatown after dinner. The ending was...children returning to the coach with filled bags.
The children have done their luggage packing, but no one seems to be excited about returning to Hong Kong tomorrow - is the success of this tour a good or bad news in this regard?
