Jamming!

This morning i went to a studio for jamming with my baboon mates. It was my first experience too. Haha. Frankly speaking, in my mind i thought that the studio that i will be going was something like this:

Unfortunately, it was just another Cloud 9 dream for me. My dreams faded away!! The studio that we went to is located near Pending area. The owner is Mr. Jackson Lim.

The studio is converted from a room of the owner's house. A size of 5m X 2.5m. I'm serious! So crampy. Imagine 9 people hemmed into the dark storeroom. Ok no complains.

Got karaoke some more

We practiced for 2 hours just to get the music harmonized. Not bad, everyone was sweating like.... I almost pengsan due to the lack of oxygen. Thanks to Mr. Jackson who is smart enough to supply this for us:

A 70's air con with egg cartons on the wall. Don't worry, we are not playing in the chicken farm. The use of these egg cartons is to prevent echo. Without those cartons, we might be playing in Mulu Cave.

During jamming section,

I'm just having a break k. *Have a break, have kit-kat*


While Avery was practicing his intro part, suddenly Soon Eng voiced out: "Between the 3 of us, i can play the intro part the best! " Oh man! This kid was trying to steal Avery's spotlight! Come on la...haha.. Anyway, i'm quite satisfied with our first rehearsel. I won't post up the rehearsel video yet. It might sound very teruk-ing. Wait untill our Swinburne night performance, then i will edit the clips. And you will know what is the song we are singing too.

Please come to Swinburne night and support us. This will going to be our first ever performance. No pride no arrogance with our simple skills. We are just doing our best and share our talents in a team.



Tittle-tattle:
Deepest condolences to the victims of the shootout in America. I'm really downcast to see a lot of lives ended just like that. Sad sad. You can check the list of the victims here. Keep the families in prayer. God bless.

*We don't know when is our last breath on earth. Only God knows. The days and hours that we have now, we just give thanks to God and live it to the fullest. Appreciate the people around you. Your families, cousins, friends, buddies.....before it is too late.*
