The final episode of Find The Wasabi leaves me in a state of lament and nostalgia. Firstly, why lament? I have to say, my glorious moment of being a talented ninja in the making was not aired. This certainly leaves a bitter taste. There was a particularly breathtaking moment whereby I had my eyes closed and the ninja was about to strike my head. But once I felt a presence above me, I immediately moved my defense weapon up above my head. And successfully intercepted a blow. I would like to think that I’m not boasting, but I did successively block three hits on my head. All with my eyes closed. And I couldn’t even hear the swish of the ninja’s weapon. All I felt was a mere warning presence. I was immensely proud of myself then.
Shae also was quite adept at this self-defence skill. But Palm always reacted too slowly causing quite a lot of helpless mirth whenever he got hit on the head. The ninja then explicated that usually females and children are able to master this technique better than males as we are deemed to be the weaker beings, which makes us naturally instinctive towards defending ourselves when threatened. Men, on the other hand, are not inclined to protecting themselves, which is why they will not be able to learn this technique as fast. Actually I have no idea whether what the ninja said was really the truth, since the ninja mission was after all fabricated. In fact, I’m not even sure if that was a real ninja, though the crew assured us he was. But still I think it was miraculous that I was able to deflect the weapon so effortlessly.
The nostalgia part is easy to comprehend, when one makes friends with others, it is never easy to part. At least now there is still social media to connect humans. But it can never compare to the heartwarming conversations and joy shared among friends throughout this albeit short journey. Also, this is my very first project that I can truly call my own; with me, myself, and I, appearing in the entire series. This is my first beloved baby. And I will never forget the merriment of filming Find The Wasabi.
I hereby share some of my jubilance with you in the form of still photos:
