Exhausting Drama Day

After those initial discussion way back in August 2007, it has bore fruits on 2 December 2007. Yes, the first of the 5 dramas has been played yesterday morning and prayers were heavy prior to the starting of it.

Beyond Control, anchored by Joshua Lim, pulled off one of the best performance we have seen for the last few years. A legal background fella, he was able to say those right words that made the drama more meaningful.

We have received feedback that the last scene was very touching that some people were filled with tears. Joshua's life took the worst turn when he accidentally hurt his son and as he couldn't take that setback, he went drinking that same night. Unfortunately, he was hit by a car after I managed to avoid him (in the first car). I was driving in the first car that avoided and scolded him after stopping at a distance. You should have seen the way we filmed how the bottle was flung up high with soft wind sound while it was turning 360 degrees on the way down.

At the end of this morning service, the crowd was really appreciative of our efforts. Some came to me saying that it was an excellent performance. There was a joke to this drama which I have told most of them, "Do you know our Senior Pastor gave me 20-25 minutes to put up a drama for each Sunday?". Guess how long was Beyond Control? A good 45 minutes. If another 8 more cast members were to join this team, we can produce a full scale movie.

So, what was my Senior Pastor's comment? hehehehhehehehehhehe..... he went overseas for an Advanced Leadership Seminar and will be back in Kuala Lumpur on 5 December. Phew! But my next question, how long are our next 4 dramas going to be?

Most of the supporting crews went for a quick lunch while a few of us went for another video shoot in between. At 1.30pm, another 2 teams took the stage for their practises. The standard was pushed quiet high by the first team and the pressure is now on the next 4 teams.

As for me, by the time I reached home it was almost 6pm. A few of us went for dinner at a Teochew Porridge near Pearl Point, Old Klang Road around 8.30pm and my migraine set in after that. It didn't go off even on Monday morning which caused me to call in sick ..... aargh, too tired/exhausted from only the first drama. One down, four to go.
