19th Ngee Ann City National Lion Dance Championship 2013 Results

Just a follow up on my previous post, I did go on to watch the final round of the Ngee Ann City National Lion Dance Championship. Thursday was the finals for the Traditional Category, which was won by Tian Eng Dragon and Lion Dance Centre. They were actually tied in scores with the last team to perform, Taman Jurong Community Club Juboon Dragon and Lion Dance Troupe, however they managed to nick away the Traditional title by virtue of having higher minor scores. One bad point about Thursday was that the event finished closed to midnight. Having 8 teams competing seemed a bit too much for one night, and that did not have any fringe performance in between the competition.

19th Ngee Ann City National Lion Dance Championship 2013

It’s been a long time since my last post again. The constant work stress and various commitments had basically drained me of energy to write any substantial articles towards sports during the past few months, although quite a lot of things happened in the sporting world.

Just to start off again, I was actually passing by Orchard area the past few days where I witness a lion dance competition going on. After doing some research, the competition was actually the annual Ngee Ann City National Lion Dance Championship, which is already into the 19th edition.
