UPM music audition

 Lalalalala
I'm back from UPM! the whole university is soooo HUGE. and what makes the music faculty special is that it is build like one house, and another house and another house. (not like other faculty where everything is in ONE particular building).The whole surrounding is full with greens and soo serene and peaceful.

 I've got a HUGE goosebump when i saw my violin idol RIGHT infront of my EYES.
I FREAK OUT. this is who i saw (scroll below please)

DR JOANNE YEOH
i read about her in newspapers since i was small. I read about her wonderful tours with Jacky cheung and David Tao and Alan Tam. I read about her awards, her achievements and everything! AND there she is! right before my eyes in T-shirt and black slack pants, getting in as one of the judge.
*cry*
Yes, she is the HEAD of department of Music in UPM. SOOO young yet sooo successful. Daddy say, if you wanna go through this line, dream big like her achievements.
i was sooo low after seeing people after people came to the audition looking like they could set fire to the music each time they play.
One came with the guitar, another came with the flute and a chinese flute, another with a drumstick (not ice cream!) and then three violinist and all pianist.
I guess i was the only one auditioning for BOTH music instruments.
and people plays CLASSICAL music..
guess i was the only one that went againts it.

After playing both, i was made to sat down infront of all three judges. Joanne Yeoh ask me "why choose this school? why UPM?"
"i heard it has the best lecturers" *raised eyebrow indicating her*
"that's true." she answer and laugh with the rest.

so i told her that i'm going to do comtemporary and major in violin (since everybody KNOWS piano, i wanna stand out)
she asked "Jazz violin?"
"oh yes"
"That's a good idea!" *snap fingers*

after the whole thing, and receiving a lot of laughters with them, i went out feeling *sigh*. I remember since the whole journey through, i told my mum i'm going to snap a picture with Dr Joanne Yeoh, but in the end, i didn't get to do it
=w=
I really like the whole campus. not to mention 100% are chinese..(don't ask me why)
and one batch only 15 human being taking music. so everyone were pretty close with each other, like a family
awwwh
<3

i will know the result on June.
*fingers cross*
apparently i hope SPM holders were enough to fill up the newly opened foundation class.
*fingers double cross*
