passion and memories.

attended the St Mary's School Band 1st concert last saturday.
i burst into tears during the encore pieces.
flashbacks of those days kept playing in my mind.
my seniors, juniors and bandmates of my batch,
the practices, parades and performances,
the tears, sweats and joy,
the obstacles, passion, and teamwork.
all of these kept playing in my mind during the concert.
i felt really touched when i came to realize that the band has gone this far.
the girls have made it. they have made the school and the ex-members proud.

as the saying goes,
rome wasn't built in one day.
years back, st mary's band was still a band that people would look down on.
but now, the band has got much better.
the band didn't just improve in a blink of eye. it was the passion and efforts by all the members throughout these years.
and not to forget our dedicated instructor, Mr. Sunny Hoh.
Sir, 7 years ago you came to take over the band. there were ups and downs throughout these 7 years. even i myself have thought of giving up. but u never.
u even encouraged us to carry on.
we are glad that we have you, for these 7 years, sir.
i'm here to express my appreciation to all members of the band and Mr. Sunny Hoh, thanks for bringing me such a wonder night, a walk down my memory lane.

and thanks, for bringing back my passion.
life is so wonderful if we are living with passion. :)

congratulations St Mary's School Band!
one peak conquered! let's achieve another higher peak.
us ex-members will always be with u.
anyway, ex-members, something is cooking, please join THIS.
please leave your emails and contact numbers in the discussion board so i can send out my proposal to u ASAP.
a tough challenge is awaiting, but i have faith and passion.
and i hope u too. :)


a walk down my memory lane.

p/s - when i received the sms from sir on saturday midnight, i almost burst into tears again. thanks mr. sunny. thanks. salute! :)

there are blank moments in one's life, and that is the transitional period. i console myself.
there are challenges in one's life, and that is the determination period. i motivate myself.


the sun sets, then rises. and it sets again.
still, life goes on no matter what right? :)

i'm currently learning how to let go things.
especially anger.
i need more positive energy. :)

*determination period means the period where determination is needed the most. lol. i kno, bad translation, i kno.

p/s - as i kno, results will be out like, reaaaaaaaaaaaal soon. i admit, i did not do well in the exams. my bad my bad. :( anyway, the Olympus PEN E-PL1 is on the top of my wishlist now. ish. this little micro four thirds camera is poisonous!

heard Simon Yam (任达华) on myfm just now.
he quoted one of the very meaningful sentences from the movie, Echoes of the Rainbow (岁月神偷).

"to live, we must believe...." he said.

true enough.

when u feel obstacles are hitting u down,
or life just doesn't seem to be going your way,
always remember this quote.
we must believe, to live on.
just believe in yourselves. :)
because we are not gonna live once more again.

united and strong.

i remember someone once asked me, why did u choose civil engineering?
for me, teamwork is one of the reasons. :)
my involvement in school band during high school actually made a huge contribution in this.
the SMK St. Mary's school band was not really good.
in fact, the condition was really kinda bad when i first joined.
imagine having only 7 to 9 members attended the holiday practices. do u call that bad? :P
oh well, im still glad that i was part of the team.
during our time, the committees worked really hard to get whatever was possible.
we joined competitions even though we knew we sucked (so badly), we went for national day parade march pasts, we attended lessons, music exchange sessions, training camps etc etc.
of course, we got hit down by obstacles too sometimes.
to maintain a band is hard, moreover, we were trying to improve it.
when we were on the verge of giving up, our coach, told us not to.
he encouraged us to carry on. and we did. :)
when i left the band, the band really improved, i wouldn't say a lot, but they really improved.

sometimes im thankful that i joined the band. because i've learnt a lot.
i've learnt how to maximize my determination when i encounter tough situations.
and most importantly, i learnt to play in a team.
or in other words, i learnt to appreciate the beauty of teamwork. :)
flutes, clarinets, saxophones, horns, trumpets, euphoniums, trombones and tubas having different tunes and tones, playing their respective scores, and by combining them, a beautiful piece of music is produced.
amazing, i think.

for construction, the same theory applies.
no single engineer is able to build a building alone.

'united and strong',
this is the first line of our school song.
yes, get united and strong.
you will be amazed by teamwork.


'united and strong'

nevertheless, my involvement in school band has brought me a group of really good friends. :)

p/s - the girls are gonna have their first concert ever! 26th June 2010, 8p.m, St. Mary's school hall. anybody interested to tag along? let me know. :)

Echoes of the Rainbow*岁月神偷

最后,在朋友再度介绍之下,买了DVD 来看。






在此送上电影主题曲和片段。 :)

不回想 不回答
不回憶 不回眸

p/s - im sorry for all my readers who don't read chinese. basically this is a post regarding the movie, "Echoes of the Rainbow" that i've watched yesterday. I truly recommend this movie. It's a simple movie, but will lead you to think in a great depth. As said in the movie, 'in this unpredictable life, time, no doubt is the biggest thief...'. =)

life has an absolute*生命有一种绝对



life's pretty good recently. because slacking is the only thing i do. :P

oh well, did a lil research on digital cameras. Olympus PEN E-PL1 is really awesome! will try to get one before going UK. but since it's really expensive, i don't put much hopes on it. if i couldn't get one, im still happy to stick with my lomo cameras. kakaka.

for lomography, my latest desires are the Diana Mini and Olympus mjμ-II. an used Olympus mjμ-II (with remote control) only costs RM199 in lowyat forum. aaaa. the deal is really tempting. well well, if im a super rich woman, i would love to get the Fuji Instax Mini 25 too. lighter in weight and better in focus compared to my current 7S.
oh well, i won't be buying any cameras these few months. :( im broke. and if i have money, it would be fund for the E-PL1.

oh well. did i tell u that mayday's concert was really awesome? ahmuk, sim, yin and i really enjoyed ourselves. :)
between, u should try listening to Yen-J (严爵). a talented young singer.

p/s - lisa ono is awesome too! aaaaaa. what's more perfect than listening to lisa ono alone,with a glass of wine? eh no. i don't drink at home. :P

"最怕空氣突然安靜 最怕朋友突然的關心
最怕回憶 突然翻滾絞痛著 不平息
最怕突然 聽到你的消息
最怕此生 已經決心自己過 沒有你 卻又突然 聽到你的消息",阿信唱。




p/s - 叮当的唱功真的不是普通的利害,她和阿信合唱《拥抱》竟然让我起鸡皮疙瘩。另外,《倔强》也让我想起了中学时期为了铜乐队而坚持的那一段过去。《憨人》,《志明与春娇》让我发现,五月天的歌,陪我渡过了很多岁月。谢谢你们,五月天。还有,五月天那3位和音老师也真的很厉害!

p/s again - 认真的男人,真的很帅。阿信,真的很有魅力。啊~~~~怎么可以那么帅?哈哈哈。其实其他团员也不赖。

p/s again and again - 我真的从《突然好想你》的那一段走出来了。现在,还是《天使》比较适合我?哈哈哈哈。阿信真的是名副其实的摇滚诗人。

p/s again and again and again (haha) - 最近有几位朋友都因为感情问题而陷入低潮,朋友们啊,
"你值得真正的快乐 你应该脱下你穿的保护色
为什麼失去了 还要被惩罚呢
能不能就让 悲伤全部 结束在此刻 重新开始活著"
