Junkers yet to stomp Kuching ! **Updated**

anWith no drumming experience and never touch any drumsticks before, 14 people from Swinburne Choir Club are chosen carefully by me to represent Swinburne University to participate in the Kuching City Parade which will be held on this coming Saturday.

Wondering what is the staging that will be performed by us?

Singing or choral speaking ? Nah ... **shake head**

We will be performing **drum rolls....** STOMP ! Blur? Basically, we will use recycle equipments, such as rubbish bins, big tongs, bla bla bla ... to shape out some music. Hopefully is not noise. Cool le. Wise spending.


Everyone is working assiduously to prepare their own instruments.




We sprayed our instruments. Not a perfect design, but yet still with some unique blueprint right? haha...


How about our attire? No worries. I have personally hired a mate all the way from Madagascar to spray some artistic designs on those plain shirts. Hopefully it won't disgrace those junkers! LOL !!
The wrapped-up work. Not bad la... some are designed by me.


Practice !!
4 days before Showtime.



"Teacher, i got something to ask?" says Eric.

Deep concentration by the junkers. That's right, we are practicing in the lecture hall. It is still part of our "stomp"s' lecture ba. And we sacrifice our night schedule and come to this stuffy and aircon-less hall for our practice.


And here's the tutor.



The junkers !! Practice hard hard hard ...





Work hard guys !



Our bass best drummer, Keith Chong.

Soon Eng is trying to. **Private and Confidential le..**




2 days before showtime!!!
Eric was trying to stretch his lengthy leg. However, he was embarrassingly defeated by this guy (picture below).


Proudly allowing me to introduce to you, Mr. Flexible Katak. If only i can do move, all of the chickens in this world will have four legs.


Nice le the big tong "Stomp".
Our assistant tutor. Too bad he cannot join this parade. All because of the boys' brigade.


Our own custom-made cymbals.

Little briefing by me.

Having fun together as one team.

Here we are. Standing as one team. Are we ready for the 3 minutes performance?


We are all nervous yet on fire for this upcoming performance. Gosshh, more than 45 contingents will be joining and compete in this event. Every eyes is aiming for the Grand Prize, Rm 10,000 !! No kidding man. 4 biji telur.... I am sure that every contingents will definitely come out with their utmost creativity and ingenuity for this.

The clock is ticking very fast!!


For those who are free on this Saturday evening 7++pm, I mean free in the sense that you are not occupied, not you are priceless k. feel free to be our supporters, i mean it is a MUST to support us. Wuahaha.. **evil laugh**


By hook or by crook, you guys just need to sacrifice your hectic schedule to be entertained by the 60 plus plus contingents in this street parade. I am expecting 0.005% of the street audience are my blog readers arr. haha..

Take note:
Time: 7pm
Venue: The Street from Jubilee Ground to Padang Merdeka. The 3-minutes will be performed at Padang Merdeka. So around 9.30 plus plus kua...
Don't miss out this encounter ! See you there!


Tittle-tattle:
Beside that, all of the contingents will be involving in the Closing Dance Finale. With an very unacceptable excuse which is to break the Malaysian Book of Records with the most people to dance the Tanduk Melayu. Sickening ka?
