Symphony orchestra 2013

it's been ages! really AGES since i've been in this orchestra!
no, it's only been one year that i skip the orchestra which is last year. 
seeing that i have no longer continue my classes on my violin, i didn't expect my teacher would call me up (as a replacement) to join this orchestra again!
and seeing that i will only be given two days for extreme practices, i manage to get through it in one piece

i was so grateful that my friend, Choon Siang snap a picture of me! i was feeling kinda disappointed that i didn't get to snap this concert! (seeing that it will be my last year around here)
but thank goodness he came with his camera! haha

anyway, i've been to this concert since i was 12 years old. Back then our first concert was not even a symphony orchestra! we and other school students joined up and form a real orchestra (ya, with real bands and all that, with the percussion and woodwind instruments)
then after that year, we perform annually for the music school. then 2009, we had our first SYMPHONY orchestra club in ALOR STAR!
we finally get a name as a team in our state!

My violin teacher and his wife and all the keat hwa people
he looks like Sam Tsui (the famous youtube singer) and an asian type of Willy wonka played by Johnny Depp. 
haha!

the empty seats before we started filling up. 
but anyway, this year concert (or maybe since last year) was filled with Keat Hwa Students, after they had ALSO form a Symphony club in their school. 
our song for this year is just much the same like our previous year. 

stealing pictures from Chewwoon Ooi ! haha

backstage before the show starts!

i thought i was the oldest among all of them after walking in the hall and looking at all young faces staring back at me. 
but finally i found a friend who is older than me! haha
no kidding, i didn't know where did all the seniors go to, i think i'm the only one left here ><

flashing back to 2009, there were plenty of seniors back then. it went very well. 

this was our concert back at 2010! the BEST damn year ever!!! why? because we get to collaborate with Penang PESSBAND (the percussion team) and we also have CHARIS CHUA!! a very young and talented musician! she played and sang her original song while we play the background music! it was the best damn concert ever that year! so much life back then!

but what i cannot forget was back in 2008 when i am the only one lone ranger from kedah that came to KL with all 14 states of Malaysia gather together to build up this concert at KLCC plenary hall.
i skip school practically one week in 14 days. 
this was the best experience i've ever get, to see the big soundproof hall, the faces of fellow ministers in the ASEAN countries, to get to know all corners of Malaysia people (i didn't know Sarawak has soo many musically inclined people!)

practicing was a nusiance though, 
they have strict rules , you have to wear your school uniforms to practice, 
you have to be punctual, 
practice time duration is like going in for a roadkill. 
and to the wonders of all, we manage to organize everything to the max, from the strings, to the drums, to the woodwind, to the piano, and THE DANCERS! AND THE SINGERS too!
and there were also choir teams too!!

this will be my last post of the day, and the last happening that happen lately. 
will be off to Koh Lanta for five days!

this is Koh lanta! a beautiful beach at Thailand!

till then, wait for me after five days!
