From a friend who gives inspiration!!

Never expect someone to bring you to greater height.. but think about do you have what it takes to go to that greater height?

PS:
I have several thoughts in my mind.. but was too tired to structure the phrasing, so shall keep in my heart till I find inspiration again!! Yay, I think I have somehow recovered.. pls maintain it this way!! Weekend come faster, I would need to survive tomorrow and Saturday!! Next week will be busier!!

Good Morning Peeps..

Today is 7:30 am!! Will it be 6:30 am tomorrow?!?!

I woke up in bad dreams, but I'm laughing it out cos its only a dream lah..

I seldom dream, so in a way I look at it with a good angle.. I do dream afterall, don't I?!?! It's better than day-dreaming :D

Hope the flu will recover soon!!

My attempt on violin

Current practice repertoires:
1) Major scale
2) Long long ago
3) Twinkle twinkle little star

Inspired by the violin intro for 心如刀割 in 张学友 - 2003 音乐之旅世界巡回演唱会.

Special thanks to RX for the "Holding the Bow" youtube video link - Though still feeling tension on my thumb, I'm trying to keep in mind to hold the violin bow using balance not tension.

Can't help but to post another two.. Must watch!!

Adam Rafferty is simply awesome!!

MacBook Pro

Ooh.. I'm eligible for the Singnet promotion which bundles with a 13 inch MacBook Pro (Core 2 Duo), but then the spec is so close to my current MacBook!!

Ahh.. must be the temptation from my colleagues who both just brought the 15 inch MacBook Pro (Core i7) at 3k!! Well, I'm only eyeing for the 15 inch i5, haha!! If only Singnet promo comes with it..

Sorry your promotion don't fit my requirement.. thank you for your effort to call, email and sms Mr. Ashton Koh, please try again!!

Rest day.. Farewell day..

Today is my rest day and tomorrow is the start of another new week. It feels like holiday's over & its time to get back to work!!

I still could not accept the fact that Friday is never the same again.. In fact, things will never be the same ever.. NO MORE HOMELY FEELING!! Yesterday was Sus's last day, I was in a rush and didn't have chance to talk to her. Wish her the best and shall catch up for Swee Choon with the rest soon :)

Not forgetting to mention that Ah Shun is leaving for China in 3 days time for 2 months, 加油 Bro!! And, wanna thank Sharon for her well wish from Korea :))

I had 2 farewell celebration for my students who will be leaving Singapore.. Though I enjoy chilling out with these people.. I never liked the fact that the reason to gather is for farewell. This morning, I just got to know that one of my guitarist will be leaving the band.. err.. Guessed I'm a person who does not like 离别, but in life people come and go.. which is beyond our control. 我只能说天下没有不散的宴席..

People who will never leave your life are the real close friends, are you the one?!?!

No Cap Day!!

For the first time I'm feeling insecure without my cap!! Yesterday was a bad hair day and I can't believed I allowed myself to go out without styling my hair.. It only implies that I needed a cap or haircut!! Mirror is my best friend which helped me decide that I needed to shop for a cap.. but I walked the whole PS without seeing one that I liked.. so shitty!!

That's how I spent my Hari Raya Haji and the whole "insecure without cap incident" only reminds me of Jacky.. keke!!

Cough cough..

My body is giving out signals to tell me that I need a break!! This week is definitely going to be better than last week.. not that hectic and there's a holiday on Wednesday. Yayness :D

Despite the bad voice day, I managed to complete a couple of things.. but since work is never ending, I'm going to rest my voice.. 休息是为了走更长远的路!!

I wanna keep myself motivated.. so I'm looking forward to the remaining one and a half month of 2010!!

Incompleteness

Things are incomplete without a shoulder rest.. Why wasn't I told about it and why didn't I find out myself?!?!

Something missing..

小提琴

今天我买了生平中的第一个小提琴。它是个便宜又普通的初学者入门乐器,刚好也是在我买我第一把电吉他的店买的。我觉得先买一个可以练习的琴,等学会后再买好一点的!!

其实,我打算要自己学拉小提琴。希望可以靠我对吉他的知识,读书时拉过二胡的经验和在网上自修.. 当然还要下一番苦功、哈哈!!

不知道这个新 "朋友" 会和我擦出什么样的火花?或许对我在做音乐上会有所帮助。 总值,非常期待就是了 :)

Photobucket

感谢鼓励过我的朋友,还有特地电邮我有关资料的追梦者之一

我会努力练习的!!

Theory of lesser sleeping hours..

This is going to be short and sweet but perhaps unacceptable to some of you.. hahaha!!

1) Old people don't need to sleep so much..

2) You would have slept 30 years (half of your life) away at the age of 60.. for sleeping 12 hours a day..

3) I chose to sleep around 4 hours a day so that I won't waste time sleeping..


And to digress a bit, I'm contented to be able to live till 60 years old.. That should be enough for me..

Ok.. Last but not least, the above-mentioned "rates" is subjected to change according to the "growth of economy", please come back often to check for updates..

2) Pass some stuff to a friend - Done.
3) Fly kite - Done.
4) Go eat dessert that I have been craving for - Not done.
5) Touch up the music that I was working on last night - Done.
6) Change my guitar strings - WILL do later!!
7) Touch up the mixing for a wedding song - Not done.
8) Continue the arrangement for another project - Not done.
9) Watch dvd - No time!!
10) Rip music to my phone - Not done.
11) Do some workout at home - Will do later!!
12) Blog - Blogged!!
13) Play guitar, learn some songs - When I finished restringing.

There should be some more lar.. will try to prioritise my work so that I can spend a productive Sunday!! Supper sounds like a good idea though, I've been secretly craving for maggie goreng.. which I have not eaten for 2 weeks :S

Anyway I really think violin playing is an art and the instrument plus its sound is a beauty.. Will learn it if I have the chance.. Hee!!

Reflection of Life

The things that we cannot choose in life and need to stick to are called commitments.. These commitments sometimes come with a little grumble. On the other hand, i realized that we are more willing to commit to things that we choose to do on our own as these decision are considered our own choice!!

In life, how many times we get to make our own decision?

How many of these decision are so-called the right choice?

Does people surrounding us support our decision?

I do have some decision that I think I made the right choice, but it certainly takes perseverance and courage to stick to it firmly. So let's be true to ourselves and not be a coward in making decision that we think is right!!

We only live once, so live it to the fullest!!
