it has been really busy these 2 months..and i really mean it..BUSINESS!
somewhere in july, i was invited to kys for the orchestra..2 minggu kat sane..best!
i made some really memorable encounters..
reminisced back the good old times with form 4's and 5's..(these were my form 1's and 2's back in 2006)
tapi seriously, mase datang..i feel really old!and those kiddos yg dlu comel2, skrg dah handsome2 and lawa2..omg!i am old!
and that some new encounters with form 3's, 2's and 1's..i felt like the good old 'Abg Za'ba'..
but obviously la, i wasn't the only kyser there..
of course there's kak leen, who officially got appointed as a part-time teacher during my stay there..she was the headgirl of 2004..and also the concert master of that year..
razeen, org melake..CM 2006..also jadi part-timer gak..
and then ninzy, principle cellist 2006..helping out ms lillian!
there was zaf, principle trumpeter 2007..also the headgirl of that year..
and last but not least, bagok "my adik ipar", principle trumpeter 2008..
boleh expect la kan..every day lepak music studio je..
1st day je semangat bgn awal pergi breakfast kt dining hall!haha..
masuk 2nd day pkl 9 pon blom tentu bgn..ye ar kan..kyser!
so klu pagi2 tu, confirm la kan pergi cafe ngan kak leen and ms lillian..
owh btw, ms lillian is our strings teacher..majoring in cello i think!owh and she speaks japanese!
her husband was my japanese language teacher..haha..
then mesti balik studio before break time..coz the juniors will come and practise!
like REALLY practise!terkejut gak ar mase mule2 datang..we never really practised for orchestra other than the night classes and rehearsals!
it's all thanks to the new music teacher, ms adrin, MYPO double bassist!mmg ar strict gler..
my 1st practice with her was the night right after i arrived there..scores lagu baru pun baru dapat..mmg garang ar..x tipu..1st time the stage was pin-dropped silence!impressive!
haha tp in the end she let loose gak..bagi chocolates to all of us a few times..
owh and one i like about the studio is we gossiped!hot topic; shim!*bukan name sebenar
the ever hated person in the music dept. students ke, teachers ke..sume benci..mane xnye..
waktu class x mengajar, bleh plak maen game! ini bukan buat cite..mmg kami kysers observed!
bleh kate every hour ade je cerite yg dibukak especially by the juniors la..jess, ah khau, khye, sara ruz, nael, mona, kc..owh and nael is the pres of music club..kesian gler tgk die..kne tahan dgn shim!and use kysers, mmg annoyed with him..last minute work la, he even asked us to teach the juniors during day classes!and he'll be on his comp doing who knows what!and i dont know what happen to late mr chiew's (previous woodwind and brass teacher) notes, warm ups and books!
and its a good thing ms lillian passed down late mr chiew's books to me. aah tibe emo..enough of shim!
so the studio brought back memories of me, mase form 5 with those kids and kak leen..we laughed, we shed tears.we practised for ABRSM(really?) haha.. more like, aah tension nye scales!x hafal2 lagi~..jom borak~!rofl..padan la grade 5 dpt 107 je!but seriously, those were the good old days..and practices awal2 mmg tensed..and i can really feel the fear from the juniors..there was no joy in the songs played..datang practice mmg for the sake of datang practice.. mmg x best.. sgt x enjoy..being the shrewd kysers as we are(cheh..) ktorg buat la a heart-to-heart gathering with the orchestra members..sharing is caring kan?=p but alhamdulillah, after that everything improved by tenfolds!even more~and being in the orchestra felt like it was still 2004~2006..macm kat terengganu, perlis, penang, johor, perak..
and that time la i feel like sharing my experience with the other trumpeters; chu-kk, kelent and poppy..hopefully they'll pass down the things that i've taught them to the juniors..duh!shim x ajar kot~and i;m proud to hear from kak leen yang chu-kk ajar the form 1s and 2s trumpet the other day..*tears*
ok the night of performance, mmg best!seriously, everyone was soooooo energetic!especially when playing prik kit nu and rong dung dung-songs arranged by late mr chiew..though shim was the one who conducted..and ms adrin's blue ridge saga, dance of a sugar plum fairy and universal band collection were superb!mmg enjoy gler..owh and encore rasa sayang (also by late mr chiew) pon mantap. i cant compare it with 2006. not because it was too good or anything. it just felt different. the vibes were different! and it just felt right. you can actually feel the soul of each member in the songs!after the VVIPS left..(tan sri couldn't make it!*sob) the audience requested for 2 more songs!haha guess what?!rong dung dung and prik kit nu!mmg all out habis la..they requested for another one.. but ktorg semue dah pancit..haha..but all in all, memang best!sangat best..and i'm pretty sure the audience enjoyed as much as we did!
so..that was the rest of july for me~nnt updates for august plak =p
