this stupid girl here has done yet another lousy thing. losing my darling wallet. like what the hell. and to top it all, its prob now residing somewhere in the streets of jb, or at the terminal at larkin, in a sad and lonely state far away from sg. all bcos i took 170. one-seven-O. of all the many buses i could have taken! :( and guess hwat. there goes my 70 bucks which i wanted to return to penguin but i forgot yet again. shoot my brains.
o well. its time i stopped spending so much on food, so maybe its all for the best like a wake up call.. but at least i hope i get my cards back. esp my ezlink. with my ugly pic on top with which i save so much on trip fares. i don even rmb taking out the wallet. could there be some hole in my bag? nahh.
i found out this aftnoon that an old friend's mum recently passed away. felt so bad later on that u had to tell me this in front of so many ppl all bcos i greeted u so loudly. dear friend of mine, i know you will never read this cos u don belong to this generation of bloggers or surfers, but i wanna express my heartfelt condolences to u. n that im really sorry. all thru out counterpoint i couldnt help tenking abt it. pls take good care alright? uve been an impt part of life in nafa. just like a father figure. i missed saying goodmorning, have u eaten? and goodbye to you everyday when u were on leave. n all our lil chats.
thank you ideabank for everything today. ive missed you alot too girl....its been too long! ive missed our chats. our laughing. n all...at least some part of my life regained normality today.
n theres so much chaos all around now in my life. i dunno why ive been feeling so emo recently. its just scary.
i havent updated here for damn long so beware its gonna be rather long. (:
so lets start from isme shall we? !!HOHO!!! like totally cool! it was a awesome.interesting.trip to kl and i guess our whole ensemble and our dear doc goh n doc tan. and jeremiah and yiwei(my dahling room buddy!) kinda bonded alot more over the few days there tog. amidst the mad n sleepy coach rides. the exploring. feasting. making frens with the singer there. watching midnite movie with great drama. bringing clare's fat lady over to kl with heart attacks. the traumatising perf, what with stuck+ over enthusiastic piano keys. super dusty piano. pitch-black darkness backstage n all that confusion of trying to find scores.and yet it all turned out surprisingly ok. damn which means i could have enjoyed it more. but oh well it was a great experience to have perf in another ctry! to have been part of such a big event was memorable too...too see like ppl ppl and ppl from all over the world. n watch some of their perf esp the indian ensemble. gosh the lady was like possessed by the music! if only we could have stayed the entire week to attend the talks and workshops n perf. thats just a huge waste u know. sigh. so near and yet so far. all these different cultures in one place. and we had to GO BACK. i really enjoyed all those many hours e trio and quintet spent rehearsing tog...esp the trio, how we struggled with the absymal rhythms and ens probs, how finally all the pieces in the puzzle seemed to fall nicely in place. all the funny moments we had like boss ng's *eye-cues. sihan's snapping strings n funny sound effects. me being too short to do the pno string gliss. all the laughter.crapping.recording.the trauma.so much more. looking fwd to working tog again dudes. (: it rocked. n lastly not to forget that totally crazy slumber party we had in which everyone went bogus and laughed ourselves to death and did the funniest things imaginable. from dressing up as snowmen with bathrobes turbans and facemasks, to filming extraordinary pushups done with baby finger vibratos and even just breath power (penguin n sihan did this superbly), and eating cuttlefish by the dozens. truly memorable. (:
then there was mussorgsky pictures at an exhibition yest. which rocked big time too. i really enjoyed every rehearsal. what with the crazy perc section of our school which plays great music and jon fox's squeaky mice. hes a great teacher i realized. funny,bonds well with them, and yet they respect him alot. (: there were lots of funny moments. the chicken dance. the babayaga. n yea. im glad i got to be part of this memorable event too. i loved it! loved the flowers too!
looking back. im really glad so many ppl in my musical life have given me so many precious chances, to be part of all these great music-making experiences. im honoured indeed. and very grateful. ppl like doc. goh. like mrs phua. and clare. so, thankyou a million times.
got to talk to a friend of mine recently. haha this is someone i only get to talk to once a year, during my birthday. thats like the only time in the entire year that he makes his existence known to me. lets just call him my library-note-friend. had a real good talk over a span of 3 diff calls which was pretty interesting too. weird huh! his voice has changed somehow and well he just seemed different. but anw this was a call that really made my day special! (: u know, its surreal to make contact with a friend once a year, furthermore to just hear the voice n not see the face! gosh thats so charlie's angels man!!!
had a super good laugh with my semiquavers today. and all cos of the wonderful mr. tubby n mr. X! girls...im looking fwd to our shirt man..hoho (: and thanks for all the fun the highs and the talks. like..ive kinda missed having girlfrens ard in sch like this for a long time. since smint n fang, n leen.. so im glad i found you guys (:

watched str*ck today. very cool i like it too. amazing girls u know? other than that ego-bigger-than-a-hot-air-balloon guy who was trying to pose while playing his piece and failed! he looked like some desperado trying to impress lahh. YIKES....gross. and then! i conned the penguin to send me home omg so fun! we went to kaps drivethru macs and traumatised the guy. yess. mission accomplisehd for the day.
ok the attack on my sweet blood by the gross mosquitoes are taking a toll on my brain..so im disappearing to dreamland now. and bye to world cup. i would love to watch but yeah. too bad. go france! (:
for all those who wonder what my my nick means. in irish folklore, the Banshee is "a woman of the inner world...who is charged with the duty of taking your soul into the inner world when you die. So when you die she has to come to the outer plane for this purpose, and she finds the outer plane very uncomfortable and unpleasant, so you will hear her wailing at the time of a death in your family." - henry cowell. in his own words.
