I'M FINALLY BACKKKK!! (:
it's a miracle i still remember my password to the blog.
i almost thought i would forget because i've been away for the longest time possible.
ahhhh, i actually miss blogging.
gonna promise to update as frequently as i can from now.
soooooo, holidays are finally here for me!
recently i've been to HK with SAJC Concert Band for Winter Band Festival!
what i could remember is this trip really brought the whole band closer.
its the best trip i've gone so far, despite the fatigue that set in before we even started our 3rd day.
but on a bright side, we've managed to clinched a GOLDDDDDD AWARD at the Winter Band Festival with 92.66%!!!!
furthermore, WE WERE TOP IN THE WHOLE FESTIVALLLLL!!! WOOOOO
that was the best part of the trip!!!
we almost came out of the hall crying after we played, because we played so many wrong stuffs, and thought the results was quite bad.
but it turns out all of us did well! YAYYYYY
we really worked very hard, and i guess the result made everything all worthwhile. (':
even Mr Sim knows and can tell that we really did work very hard, and no matter what the results are, it just show us how much we have grown.
other than that, we had a band exchange, workshop with Dr Tim, and a performance at Disneyland, gala dinner at Disneyland!
that was enough to set us all busy for the entire 5 days in HK!
shopping was really minimal, i didnt buy anything much for myself as well.
but its okay, i enjoyed myself so muchhhhh! (:
OH, one thing i dislike abt HK is the weather!
the first 2 days was okay, but on the 3rd day it dropped to 13 degrees.
and at disneyland at night, we were all underdressed, with our windbreaker and t-shirt with jeans.
WE WERE ALL FREEZING, AND SHIVERING ESP WITH THE WIND.
furthermore, we had our gala dinner outdoor.
so the food turn cold the moment we left it on the table for a few minutes.
even the chocolate fondue we took hardened after a few minutes.
that was how cold it was.
so we all went to sought refuge in the banquet hall. LOLLLL.
that night was the 4th night.
by the time we reached the hotel it was 12.30am.
and we still had to bubble wrap our instruments.
so by the time all of us slept it was 3plus going to 4 in the morning, and we had to wake up at 7am.
all of us were zombiefied on the last day. LOL.
slept on the plane back to SG, by the time we touched down it was 12 am.
had to go back to sch, debrief, and by the time i reached home it was 3am.
we were all so tired, exhausted, even Mr Sim and Mr Kan.
but all of us thoroughly enjoyed. (((;
this will be a trip i will never forget, thank you SAJCCB for the greatest memories. <3
i will post the pictures later!
another event that ended yesterday was Junior College Band Festival, JCBF in short!
its an optional event that will last for 4 days!
basically all of us will be separated to 3 different bands, and you play together for 4 days, and we will put up a concert at the end of it!
i was really lucky my band, Berlioz, have the most SAJC people in it!
and all the people inside was really friendly!
first few days was a little weird and awkward...
but during the sectionals on the 3rd day, Berlioz CL section started playing games!
HAHAHAH, it was so fun i swear!
i have never enjoyed sectionals so much before, we were like laughing playing concentration, "Black Magic" and stuffs for the whole 2 hours. ((((:
this really brought our section much closer!
and btw the section only has 5 girls including me, so you know guyssss?? yeah hard to bond.
concert was yesterday at SCH!
i swear we had a blast omgggg!
the backstage waiting time was well-spent and funnnnn!
SAJCCB started playing games together, concentration and suchhhh.
we were laughing so hard, because it was so funny how each of us got eliminated!
then once Holst Band started the concert, we had to cool ourselves down and get ourselves into the concert mood. LOL
during intermission, we had to standby backstage and i tell you, my heart was pumping so badly and my throat WAS SOOOO DRY.
Shasha who is from CJC, and a clarinetist too, had stage fright too.
we were both like so nervous there.
then everyone gave each other encouragement, even the chaperones. (((:
went on stage, played our best and received the loudest applause!
went out and met the SAJC seniors and my girls!
thanks for supporting everybodyyyyy! (((:
all in all, although i was dreading this at the beginning, but i learnt so much and had fun too!
this was a unique experience! and i've made many new friends as well!
really nice people in the berlioz band!
thank you awesome berlioz people for the memories!
keep the passion for music going!
so with these, its half of my holidays gone for solely band.
and back to reality is homework waiting for me. SIGHH.
we still have to study for MSAs that will commence once school starts.
