On-site at Tampines Round Market and Food Center (TRMFC)

The costumes have mostly been made, and Hasyimah and Othman (the production manager) are finishing up the rest. This time, one of the trolleys has fairy lights coiled around it, and the rest would similarly done.

The costumes would be preset on a clothesline in the middle of TRMFC.

Cik Sarimah (from Kayat Nasi Padang) approached Hasyimah and suggested a way to attach some of the materials, adding that she would also pass her extra plastic bags if there were any.

Haizad firstly gathered the dancers to introduce them to the costumes and let them choose/try out. Since the costumes are made of translucent mesh, their innerwear would be bright and plain coloured tops. In addition, they would also have accessories such as headgear and bracelets placed inside the trolleys at the start of the performance.

Haizad called it the “magical trolley”.

He also briefed them that he would first be discussing with Aameer about the songs and sounds used, while the dancers are to recap and learn the choreography to Ji Ba Ban as well as update each other about Segment 2 to those what were not present previously. While they were recapping the choreography, Aameer played the song through the speaker for them. As they were rehearsing, some of the hawkers came over from the outer side of the hawker center and some even started singing along. After discussing with Aameer, Haizad then came in to facilitate the dancers in recapping.
