Selamat Hari Raya Aidiladha to all my Muslim friends and readers (:
My two weeks holidays are here and today is the 4th of the holiday! Spent the first 3 days in school because of SP band camp. Preparation for the upcoming 31 Musical Delights concert! Overall, i’ve enjoyed the camp somehow despite it’s suppose to be intensive practice and such for the concert. Thanks to the late night laughters contributed by the section and such. 😀
Let me try to recall about the camp. HMMM.
Had lunch with Lenus and Darryl before reporting for camp. I can’t remember much but i know we walked from Clementi to school. It was a great walk and i enjoyed it. haha. Had combined with Mr Tan. Did the first half of the concert pieces. It was okay. Die Meistersinger needs more improvement!! I think i suck at that piece la. ): Had dinner and then sectionals. Then head down to Clementi for supper. Can’t remember much ah. Met Alvin and went back to school. Bathe and tried my very best to sleep but failed. Alvin was blasting his horn in the WEEEEE morning and Darryl cannot stop laughing and farting.
Woke up pretty early and such. Had Mac for breakfast! Had sectionals then and went to Commonwealth’s Long John Silver for lunch with the section. After which, went back and clean the horn area. Supposedly to have sectionals after that but somehow, all of us fall asleep!!! haha. Dinner and then combine with Mr Tan. Voting for the next committee 2008/2009 after combine. Had supper again at Clementi and such. Bathe and again, tried my best to sleep which obviously failed for the first few hours. This time, the horn guys stayed overnight. Having Hong Kai, Darryl and Alvin together to come up with such hilarious talk and concept and their gayish act, you will end up laughing
Last day was okay. I was one of the 3 nominated student conductor. So after breakfast and combined with Mr Tan was the audition thing. Fabian was first, Jia Rong was next and i was the last one. Did the piece, Tintin. It was nerve wrecking i’m telling you but was a great experience to have. haha. So after the audition thing, was given the MD tickets and stuff. Congrats to Fabian for being the new student conductor! Good job man! Jia Rong too! And congrats to all newly appointed committee members 2008/2009! 😀
Head back home after camp and did nothing much. Slept in the bus and actually miss a stop when i was in service 5! I think due to lacking of sleep la. Had alumni meeting and sutff. Nothing much after that.
And i didn’t get to take full horn section picture! ):
