Music is LOVE!

I am so sorry for not blogging for such a long time again. Just that, there aren't as many interesting stuff to blog about ever since I came back.

Truth to be told, I think I'm starting to miss me second home. I want to go back to Germanyyyyyy. I miss the people, the food, the weather, the libraries, the acitivities.... T.T  Anyone generous enough to sponsor me a flight ticket to visit my second home again??

Recently, I have just been busy scouting around for colleges and trust me, it ain't as easy as it sounds. Maybe you'll consider me as being indecisive, but the reason why I'm taking such a long time to choose is because I really want to be enjoying college instead of going in there and complaining till the day I leave. That's not what I want. I want to be in an environment where learning is fun and interesting with my dedicated lecturers and great coursemates. I am quite sure many of my friends would understand how I feel since many of them have already started their courses way ahead of me.

I have actually decided on this particular college. But then, seems like I have been getting unpleasant comments about it. The thing I can do now is either to stick with my decision or go all the way back to square one and start my search again. These colleges have been really confusing me from day one. They can actually convince me into believing how great their institute is when the truth is, it isn't. Boahh, I have really no idea how I shall describe their marketing skills to you. I think that I really should ask them for some tips on Marketing 101, it sure would be a great skill to have. XD

Anyway, back to the main reason why I'm writing this post. Last Sunday, I represented the Young News Network(YNN) from our local newspaper theStar to report a music festival held in International School of Kuala Lumpur, Ampang. It was a small scale music festival where students from different local and also international schools in Kuala Lumpur come together to practice and perform in a big ensemble. :)

My assignment that day was to report on the event and make a short video out of it and I think it went pretttty well for my very first time. :D  Well, action speaks louder than words. You shall be the judge. :)

Here's the video that I made. :) 




I really had fun reporting the event. It was an honour to be able to interview the students, the conductors and also the organisers. I enjoyed the final concert that the students performed. They did a wonderful job! While listening to them play, I could even feel the hair on my arms standing. They were simply amazing to be able to perfect their ensemble in such a short period of time! Can you believe it, the students only had the time over the weekend to prepare!!!

My favourite piece of all was the Looney Toons played by the Senior Band. They were able to make the whole piece sound fun and exactly like the one on TV! A short part of the song was at the end of the video, did you see? :D Could you recognize the song? 

Oh, how I wish I could play so well like them. I used to play the piano when I was younger but I gave it up because I thought that I have no talent in music. XD Now, come to think of it, I think I have been having the totally wrong idea about music all these while. Learning should be fun and it should bring the player joy and comfort. On top of that, I should be glad to be able to play music even it is just the basics. I think the reason why I lost interest in music was because I didn't have as much fun when I was learning it. I was basically just attending class, preparing for examinations and sitting for examinations. Exactly, how does that sound fun, right?

Well, I do not regret having the opportunity to learn music because although I'm not extremely good in it, at least I still have basic knowledge and skills in playing the piano. Also, I think it was music that helped me so much in my mental development too. I think I am going to pick it back up! Like they all say, who doesn't love music?? :D 

I would have uploaded a few pictures from the event to show you guys. But unfortunately, the pictures are not with me at the moment and I can't get those pictures I posted up on my twitter to put them here. Hope the video was good enough to give you guys a rough idea what the music festival was all about! Short but informative and nice, I hope? (;

xoxo,
Roxanne
