guess what i got for xmas? im now the proud owner of the sweetest loveliest....mini fondue set in the world man. (: hur hur hur. its my cheap thrill for the month of dec lahh. its pink heart shaped and all. thanks bananababe! i love it! come over soon and we can try it out k. together!
was good to finally meet up with the solaris ppl plus our lignum security guard hehe. finally man. after so long. peig gave us fried cookies (damn original eh :P and..surprisinlgy nice! don box me girl.) met up with vince too. he who i bumped into wks ago at serenes center. and i had a happy day (cos hes ridiculously funny) walking in the middle of orchard road talking and eating non stop. (: oh. n taking photoprints man. haha. sth i havent done in a long while.
house painting was fun. wobbling abt on the tiny ladder is kinda scary. i get the dizzies from that small amount of height. ahh. hopeless, am i? now our living rm has different shades of warm orangey-brown. i like!
our two wk holis are finally here. its been the maddest two-wk rush so far. rehearsals like mad. chest pains from thursday and fri.
performing dr.goh's piano trio on thurs at his concert was exciting. (: everything that we worked thru in detail, painstakingly and in extremes; i tenk we kinda pulled it off. ive enjoyed playing in this trio alot. theres that spark of chemistry between us, in our playing and our rehearsals. so much nonsense and laughter. but yet at the same time, so many productive constructive critisicms and comments and working thru different sections. they have taught me alot abt ensemble playing too man. so i really hope we continue playing together even after graduation. u guys hear that? (: and im really grateful to have the chance to play the composer's work. so thankyou!
den there was that totally totally happening chamber sounds christmas gig we had at the esplanade concourse on the 16th. hohoho. i love our hats and snowflakes. the glitter and goldfishbowl. the glam namecards. the dedications. the friendly audience. and of course the wonderful arrangements. so thank you daniel (boss rudolph) alan (santa in training) penguin (santa himself) and hilmi (my duet partner!) for all the fun. music making with you guys is always shiok! i get real high from this (: i love carol of the bells man. and not cos its mainly my piece. it is nice.
been bumping into many old friends suddenly. like..bang bang. woah. overwhelming. but i guess its part and parcel of living in sg man. its amazing how we all have some kinda interesting connection with each other in different ways. all everyone is interconnected through everyone else. what a small cosy island! haha.
alright. merry christmas babes and dudes! (: enjoy urself lots! and spend it with ur loved ones! cheers!
another crazy hour post. to keep me awake. hehe. carmen was shioknesss. we wanna play it again! *fingers and toes triplecrossed*. theres stuff to be improved and i tenk we're alr pretty excited to work the kinks out and get it better this time. hooray! i like it.
and so i watched my first organ concert today. enjoyed it thoroughly man. especially janette fischell's transcription of nutcracker. goodness. truly awesome. and the ensembleship btw the husband n wife duo is amazing. so much fun to it. the way they pass over the lines to each other. (:
cheesecake sticks by my sis rocks. so does girl guides' special nut and raisin cookies. and strawberries. cos these are what have been keeping me awake so far. hur hur. no more tho. prevention is better than cure so i brushed my pearly whites alr. yay! save my tummy.
taking music therapy is fruitful too. im so glad i decided to take this module. reminds me of times in bio lessons my one time fave class. hehe. except now its combined with music. to make it even more interesting. im learning so much in this mod. and cant wait for january to come so we can start practicum at sgh. and work with the hearing impaired kids there. gonna be real challenging and tough. but i tenk it'll be worth all of it. and i really hope we manage to produce some kinda results with them. to be of some help to them, even if jsut a bit.
just one quick post before i jump into bed. carmen is on tmr!!! i cant believe we did it in one week but, yes, i tenk we did it! (: and its the shiokest feeling ever. so i hope tmr goes really well. one things for sure. i wont forget laurence's silly jumping cue and midorie's attempt at diva-ness while playing, not in a long while. and all spontaneous stuff we did in reh like getting up to dance. hur hur. the piece is that infectious. next up is the chamber sounds' xmas gig at esp concourse on sat, dec 16th. timings are 6.45pm to 7.15, 8 to 8.30 and 9 to 9.30pm. its gonna be fun too. what with all the amusing ideas we have! nthen its the school's xmas concert on 19th at the LFT.and den. on 21st dec, in the composer's own words, The Concert of the Year. (: haha. stressful and exciting at the same time. i love his piano trio. each movement is so unique in its own character. and how the different instruments dialogue, complement and contrast is wow-ness. n the zen-ness of the Huan movement. n the exhilaration of the Ji. i likeeee.
i wanna eat aunt anne's pretzels. they were yummmmy today. hohoho. and green tea and macadamia ice cream . (:
dec is like the crazy concertizing mth for musicians man. while the rest of sg rests and holidays, musicians get ready for world war iii - influx of the concerts. haha. im going mad just looking at my schedule for rehearsals. its exciting and stressful at the same time. i likee. 4 concerts in a row the following two wks, all three days apart. n den its party time! xmas is just round the corner! whoopeedos. i like. all the gold and glitter and carols. the pretty-ness of everything. the magic and santas rudolphs presents and elves. u cant help but feel the happiness seeping into u. n spreading to everyone else. and u feel like spreading out ur arms and embracing this world.
sometimes i know i get a bit too much. i tenk i put out too many of my thorns in defense. so im sorry if ive been too much of a bitch recently to any of you bodies out there. too....horrible for even myself to tolerate. hur hur. sometimes when i tenk back on myself i wonder at the ability of my friends to be so nice to me. and den i feel so PAISEH. yucks.
so heres my star awards thankyou list to my friends for ur amazing tolerance level to me haha. (: so amazingly nice to me. yes you. you. you. and you. haha. u know who u are lahh. if u don, TSK. and as a p.s. i must thank chiew mi for being my online agony aunt. (: if not at that moment i would have self combusted. and also to you. just once a day is my daily apple for the day. to keep the mental doctor away. hehe. so thanks for somehow making things better, miraculously, simply just with your presence.
