singing

been doing a bit of singing lately...b, r n i happily turned up in zinnia's place on friday..handed her music scores and went through a 'critical review' of us singing ambitious songs...

Of course..zinnia being zinnia, she made us do impossible stuff..like reaching the HIGH C as we warmed up our poor underworked diaphragm. Amazingly, the note was reached... but spunky (zinnia's boy boy) was barking at us..so i dont think it went really well...hmmm

Nonetheless, the feeling of picking up singing again is great.

Being such a beginner in singing, a couple of points were noted
1)Not using diaphragm enough
2)still using throat voice too much
3) not powerful enough

Hobby is a hobby =)

I started to pack stuff that was piling up beside my luggage bag...INTO the bag. Of course, grandma being my sweet grandma, stuffed stuff inside those 'to be packed' plastic bags. I found laundry lines, rubber bands and even clothes hangers..... ah, her way of expressing affections. *smiles*

Had a LONG chat with Tingting last night.. in the middle of it, we met Fiona..and she plonked herself next to me and the 3 of us started chatting for another few hours. Old friends, old times... The same old story remains however..as we approach the next phrase of our life (i.e. working).

Tingting and I were library kakis.. We gathered as much library cards from our family members as possible and head to AMK or Toa payoh to borrow books every pri/sec school holiday. Memories... haha

Jon got a collection of books that i want to get my hands on... next hols perhaps. :p

well... using that diaphragm is a definite thing.. the powerful voice part we can work on it when we that diaphragm part all worked out..

in the past, I had the sad life of reading my TEXTBOOK... that was when I was half way up malaysia but then reading wasn't my forte anyway.. used to take me months to finish 1 book.. can never stay awake while reading..
