On the steps of a knight

Never have I imagined myself or my sister doing what we did today. It was something we have been doing, in the vicinity of our home, for years and also in our school. It was and still is something we aspire to be in some distant future.

Forgive me for being vague. We went for an audition at the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre today. And what an experience it was. We had to recite a Shakespearean monologue and a contemporary monologue. My role model was Sir Ian McKellen, the great theatre actor as well as a great screen actor. When you watch him play a Shakespearean drama, it will give you goosebumps and make you appreciate the art of acting.

Then four of us were called for a group session. That was fun. We had to do stuff to test our spontaneity. And man, we scored big time. The judges laughed and had a good time. They even said we were the best lot so far. That was a great compliment.

Tomorrow, we would know if we made it or not. Whatever it is, we had fun.
