Lets Get HIgh

Hello to my three dear readers, which happens to be Copykate, Michelle and Yezi in alphabetical order. (Waves)

Anyway, emo period is over now. Its time to get high. First up because last Friday I performed at the Music Fest Pre-show for all the losing semi-finalist organized by VJC Subjectif. It was an amazing gig. I tell you, when I go on stage with the guitar, there is no fear at all. No fear. Unlike my violin performance which sadly I'm still waiting for my first perfect performance. But with the band, with the guitar its totally different. My heart doesn't even skip faster with all that people looking at me.

Kudos to Subjectif. You guys organize gigs better than the SC. They kinda suck. Wow amazing, you guys gave us proper and good Marhshall amps, provided cables, good bass amp and a very good and new drum set. Simply reminds me of the Cat High Music Awards Days where iMedia took care of everything and all we had to do was to bring ourselves and our guitars there and just plug it in. Anyway we played Smooth by Carlos Santana and Jenny by The Click Five. Both songs were really good. I'll upload the pictures as soon as I get them from Patrick.

Well, after the Music Fest pre-show there was, Music Fest itself for the winning semi-finalist. The results were a bit unexpected in the end for the vocals, dance and video categories. Vocal group was no fight because Melodie's group is really on another level. Band group despite many people expecting Paper Pavement to win cos they were in the finals last year and they are quite popular I must say that I thought Polarix was better. Polarix were more stylo, more fierce, more dynamic and of course showed more technical expertise. Although many people say they were noisy and the songs are those noisy type but that's how a gig is. Paper Pavement I felt were a little too stagnant. Shoulders and Down of course even more 'guai' and still. Ultimately, Polarix edged out.

Vocal solo, I think Audrey should have won. Her technique was much better than the other two. Hello Panda or the Finger Breakdancing video should have won the video category instead of the Wushu group. The Hello Panda group video can be viewed here. Must watch. Its super funny.

Anyway that's that for Music Fest.


At least 3 people have commented about my MSN nick which goes "She laughs at my dreams but I dream about her laughter"
Joshua Chin Ze Yi said "since when did I become so philosophical."
Stacy said "Ohhh, by the looks of your nick, you are in love"
Mich said "Cute"

Anyway I've always been philosophical, I'm not in love and maybe I'm cute but that line is from lyrics from the song Just the Girl by The Click Five.

That's all. (From the Devil Wears Prada)

Where is happily ever after

It wasn't to be.

When will this all change for the better?



So close but still so far

I guess what copykate said is true that I put too much pressure on myself to perform well and I guess I haven't had many places to seek comfort and solace. In that sense, I think I'm pretty amazing. Yes! Self-praise. The average teenager going through what I'm feeling would have jumped off a building but here I am still living with hope for the unknown.

People say bad things happen in threes. But bad things have been going on for so long now that I've already failed to notice the good things happening. (ARE THERE ANY?) Like ex-classmates and faraway friends saying hello on my blog. My Wonderful Tonight and How Deep Is Your Love for the guitar concert was pulled. Pretty much leaves me out of the limelight. Its sad. I know. I very much wanted to perform that gig. But I guess at least I still have some items. My bassist was left with no item. Cheer up dude. I know exactly how you feel, happened to me in sec 4. All I can say is you still have a long way to go and lots of time left unlike me who's becoming old.

And yes, tomorrow is judgement day. The day of our PW results. Judging by how things have been turning recently, I shouldn't been feeling optimistic for it and I must admit that yes, there are some doubts in my heart which normally wouldn't be there.

I know that I've put in my very best for my PW and I shouldn't have any regrets but then again I don't think in a normal way. Trying my very best for PW will make me crave for the A even more. And yes, I must say that I won't be able to accept anything other than an A. Please la, whichever God that is punishing me or putting me through these hurdles in life, I think I've learnt a lot from them and shouldn't it be time for some glory now? PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!!

Apart from that I've been moving back towards English songs again in the past few weeks. At this point I must announce that I've gotten tickets to Mayday's concert in Singapore. YAY. Been moving back to a lot of duets from the 80's and 90's. Bee Gees, Bryan Adams etc etc. My iTunes never fails to shuffle some emo Josh Gorban or old Chinese songs at night. And I'm finding Kammermusik real irritating.

Anyway, been really addicted to this song since I heard it that day. Its So Close by Jon Mclaughlin from the movie Enchanted. I like the jazz infused chords which gives it this heighten sense of sophisticatedness and the singing is really emotional and the orchestra scoring is just so lush. Alan Menken charms me yet again as he has done so on so many occasions watching my favourite Disney cartoons.
Anyway here is the song,

There is this one thing that I realised about relationships is that I must get to know the person a bit first before making any moves. The problem is I don't have a chance/don't dare to approach/don't know if I should get to know the person better.

Anyway, good night.
