no one

i should be ashamed for not having my blog updated for ages. this time around, this blog has been left stagnant and idle for quite a time due to the stagnation of my life. no experience, no blogging lah. i just didn't know what to write. furthermore, i've vowed to myself not to ever put lame and crappy stuffs into my blog. after all, quality should always remain above quantity.


lemme get a headstart with the freaking paramount group singing competition...my group consisted of me pau aggie leens and kay. fatin acted as our so-called 'manager' to aid us in our training etc (sounds so vain)...

everything about our performance and preparation was just 'extraordinary'. yeah, extraordinary. it's really funny that none of us has ever had experience of singing in front of the public. the 'dance' between our lack of experience and nervousness, coupled with the echoing technical problems here and there really reduced our chance of getting to final. yes, we didn't manage to savour the feeling of being one of the finalists, but who cares? i had fun. we had fun. i've just watched the video of our performance, and we didn't suck okay. or to be frank, we didn't suck comprehensively. i just simply laughed while listening to leens' cute and cuddly intro, watching the aggie's confidence in shaking his whole body to the rhythm of 'no one', sensing the kay's quest for a vocal timelessness, admiring our lil kid pau's innocent steps and my own stiffness and tensed look on the stage. that was really a recording that i'll surely treasure...


hugs and kisses to my singing comrades. we really rocked the day. kudos to the finalists. you guys were really really great and it's a mesmerizing fact of how successful Sri KDU is in not only being a temple for the intellectual and academic enlightenment for the students; it has also managed breed an abundance of young talents in singing. this has really thrilled me actually.

lesson of the day;
as we're all engulfed in the hectic lifestyle as an IB student, we should be more aware of the importance of us keeping some bits and pieces of the lusciousness of our life and preserving them into the sacred form of images for us to reflect to in the future. treasurable memories can never disappoint us; they act as an enrichment and testament of how wonderful our lives could and will be. they can even act as antidotes to cure the negativity of the feeling of being your own self. furthermore, memories will always be by your side to cheer you up if the emotional eclipse roams your world in the future.

Therefore, do your best to treasure all your memories okay. i think i should snap more pictures of me having my 'ordinary' meals at salhah or deli. who knows, if a picture of me biting my food hard with my friends on my side would be able to add sweetness into my days in the future.

~a perfect reason to have a new digital camera, indeed. i SHOULD get a better camera than my current mediocre Casio EXILIM. I should =) mamak! yan! my plea okay~

yeah. i think it would be nice to have us singing in the drought-stricken regions to bring the blessings of torrential downpour to the people there. it's like a serious ritual. (reminding me of our form5's short story 'looking for the rain god')...
