SYF happened on 27 April 2011, Wednesday.

It was time for Guitar Club to show our abilities!

But first, let's meet up at JP for breakfast. 
Musn't perform on an empty stomach ^^


 On our way to RP,
Beautiful day, isn't it.

Then, at 1.30pm, we went backstage inside the theater. We were to be the first group to be performing after lunch break. Waaahh, so nervous. We went in and waited behind the stage for the audience to enter. Queued up as how we would be seated.

So quiet! Everyone was hushing one another. Shhhhh, shh! Then the stage guy stood near the entrance to the gate, holding onto a walkie-talkie, glancing out of the door to see whether the audience had arrived. We just stood there, holding our guitars and footstools. I didn't know how long it took before we went on the stage. Standing there, anticipating that we would finally perform, after 3 months of practicing. Wow.

Everything that we have practiced for is for this reason only. To perform in SYF.

It was now. The stage guy nodded. We went in. Off our bass person went. Then the first row. The second row. And it was my row. It was real, we are really gonna do it, I though to myself.

We bowed to the audience. Sat down onto the chairs. Lifted our guitars .... and performed.

And it was over. We walked out of the stage, out of the theatre and started chatting and sighing in relief. It was done. Let's just hope for the best, that's what I'm sure everyone thought.

After that hurdle was completed, it was time to .... CAM WHORE! What better time to spend our time waiting for the results to be released at 5.30?

A photo with the tall guy.  He's 1.85m! Can you believe it!

And for some pool :)

Singing along the pathway in RP. Haha! That was fun.

But we were so engrossed in singing that we were (slightly) late for the release of results. Haha. Rushed to the same theatre were we had performed.

The panels of judges were sitting in front of the stage and in front of the audience, about 40 schools and had around 150 people. Most were their for the guitar SYF while 3 of the schools were there for the Harp compeition. Yes, HARPS. That was so freaking cool! And unbelievably dreamy. Just looking at the harps made me imagine that the harpists were elfs and they've come to play a wonderful song. Haha! In hindsight, I should have seen their performance. Ah shuacks.

 "Where in the world can you find a CCA like this elsewhere?" one of the judges spoke. The 5 of them were all muscially acclaimed foreigners. There was one from Britain, UK, Austrialia and even Germany. They first remarked on how the style was overall. There was a need to make each repeated verse distinctly different, ie. having different speeds, the sounds and others. The way they spoke, in the muscial terms, which the common layman like myself could not understand a word, was so ... unreal.

How many times have I heard someone talk something this similar to me? NONE. But for me to hear it, it has made certain the fact that I have  we have done it. We had performed and it was only at that very moment that it hit me.

One by one, the judges spoke. And it was time for what we have been waiting for, the release of the results.
From the secondary schools and to the JCs. It was nearing our number. ..."Jurong Junior College. . . BRONZE." And I cheered.

It was a victory. Though we got a Bronze, which many would say that we didn't do so well, one has to look at the other schools to gauge how truly well we did. Hwa Chong, ACS and other top schools got Silver. I believe only 1 school got Gold. See! They got Silver! So, we did do quite well for a club that started practicing for only 3 months.

We did good.

I am proud of my club and of the members.

Today is the day.

Woke up at 7.30am. Only got 7 hours of sleep. It should be enough for me, hopefully. What if I was feeling sleepy while in the performance and dazed off? Definitely gonna die. Can't be distracted now. ><

I'll be bring along my Wonderful Cammy and will post these photos up soon. I want a JJ Guitar Group photo!

Tomorrow, the Day

JJ will be having our SYF tomorrow, 27 April,
 at Republic Poly at 1.30pm in the theatre located on the outskirts of the ground, near the canteen.

Come and support us! Give us eye power encouragement!

Rock On Dudes and Duduttes!

Gosh. All our hardwork is all for tomorrow. For the prizes of SYF. I really hope we would get a good prize, enough to honor JJ. Weeks of practice, all converging for tomorrow. Getting butterflies just typing these words. Haha.

I haven't seen the other school's performances. I heard they're quite good. But we are better. Yeah right. Still, we must not waste all the practice that we have. We mustn't.

And after the SYF, J2s have to step down. It is very fast. I am sad that they have to step down. There isn't enough time for me to interact with Guitar's members! My J2 friends. . :( I will see them even less. And laughing at all the antics that they have done. I don't really anticipate them retiring from Guitar. :(

From our rehersals for our Civis performance

to our last and final rehersal yesterday

It has passed too fast.
But I believe we can achieve.

All the best Guitar Club!

I like this

If it was shown here, I would want to watch it. To see how a day is like in every other people on Earth. See their traditions and relive their memories. That would be something amazing. ^^

Hey everyone,

It's Friday~!! Tomorrow

Haha! Even Guitar Club got infected by the Friday song.

Seriously though, can you believe the girl's 13? She looks like 18 or something! There is something about America that matures/ages its teens faster than the rest. .

Good Friday's up next and What a lovely holiday I'll be having. ^^ Sleep in, meet friends ... and study. Got to study hard. I am so behind everyone. :(

*Sigh* We've got a new timetable. Crossed my fingers that it would be better. Didn't work. Our class ends latest at 6 and earliest at 5. WTH. This is bullshit.

Let me rant:
For whatever reason, is our timetable really better than other schools? Just by comparing with other classes, they're so much better. Currently, the earliest is 3pm. Thank god we shifted up one lesson 1 hour ealier. Latest is 5.30. Truly, couldn't we have Friday free? No. We got to have SPA after the prayers. And going home around 5. CCA day doesn't count cause I have Guitar. And that's enough to make me happy. Now, with the new timetable, . . . ending even later, released even later. Sian. . . So many tutorials, lectures on that day. How to survive?
