GLEE-FUL Weekend! Glee Flash Mob @ The Gardens, KL

I had a fantastic weekend as I finally participated in my first flash mob and what flash mob could be better than a GLEE flash mob!  Since GLEE is my favourite show, I was very keen to join indeed.  I studied the moves on my own through a tutorial video and then attended two more rehearsals at The Gardens before going into real action on Saturday at 2pm at The Gardens Ground Level (positioned on the right - there were others on 1st Level and 2nd Level too).

I had a great time...as a GLEE fan, truly an experience to cherish and I enjoyed every single moment of it.  Thanks to Random Alphabets for organizing this flash mob.  However, from the aspect of a participant of a flash mob, it was a bit disappointing as there weren't that many onlookers at The Gardens.  The few hundreds of us definitely couldn't "blend" into the crowd and stood out like a very BIG sore thumb as we waited for our cue to start.  Without enough genuine spectators (doesn't include friends, relatives, media who were aware and prepared), it defeats the purpose of surprising folks with a flash mob.  So, at the end of the day ... we put aside our disappointment and we just danced for our very own enjoyment, crowd or no crowd!  Boy! We danced alright ... I think I flung my arms so vigorously till they almost detached from my body (my arms and legs are aching from the few minutes "workout" on Saturday while I had survived the two hour rehearsals I went through (TWICE) without such body aches!)

Here are some behind the scenes photos of Glee Flash Mob preparation and show time from Random Alphabets Facebook page, Here's also one of  the many videos I got off from YouTube showing the performance.  There are many more if one were to do a search for "Glee Flash Mob Gardens KL" in YouTube.  Check out the dance ....




And since we were dancing for ourselves anyway...we even had an encore (quite unheard of for "flash mob") and the second time round was totally awesome! Us, Gleeks gave our "all out" performance which nearly brought The Gardens down, hahaha.... Check out the video! Truly a performance of a lifetime :o)





  I can now strike "Flash Mob" off from my bucket list ;o).  I'll remember 8 May 2010 for the rest of my life for it was a great day!

Have a GLEE-ful week ahead everyone!

There's far too much of screaming thus drowning the beautiful songs. Those overseas flash mob's audience were more disciplined and therefore we could enjoy every bit of it. Nonetheless, the second one is much improved. Glad you enjoyed yourself thoroughly!

Haha that looks awesome! Would have felt pretty cool being a part of that.

I've only just started watching Glee and so far so good - I love the music and can't help singing along during the episodes (I assume I'm not the only one who does that?)
