So how was Juan Or's reaction towards the lion dance performance? With the first loud clang of the cymbals and Chinese drum, Mommy expected Juan Or to be shocked, but no, he was cool all the way! Papa carried Juan Or so that Mommy could capture the lion dance and Juan Or's facial expression on the handphone videocam. At the same time, Papa closed Juan Or's ears in case the loud clangs damaged his hearing. After Mommy was done with filming (Mommy didn't film right to the end of the performance), off and on, Mommy would glance at Juan Or to which Juan Or nodded his head as if to say he enjoyed watching it! However, about 5 to 8 minutes into the performance, Juan Or started shaking his head while saying "Bo-ai, bo-ai!" (don't want, don't want!). Looks like Juan Or found it too noisy, so we left the place.
Anyway, with Juan Or's cool reaction, Papa and Mommy now feel more confident to bring Juan Or for acrobatic lion dance performance in the future. So from now on, Mommy will be on the lookout for acrobatic lion dance performance schedules in major shopping complexes......but that's only if we are able to catch it at the right time when Juan Or is not sleepy and fretful!
