The last concert...

The choir team had been working very hard for 25th March 2009,the day that kept us waiting for the longest. Everyone especially the seniors worried the most for this time round compared to the previous ones due to some new+never-before-seen problems encountered(this should be referred back to the grandmother stories back in 2008). I've joined back the team 2 weeks before the competition day as a pasu bunga because my members & peers kept reminding me that this might be the last time for to stand on the stage with them as i will be graduating in mid-year. I was worried too at the same time because I didn't know how to sing both of the songs well as I've never attended any of the practices. I've managed to appear twice for the practice within the 2 weeks. I should say that i picked up quite fast because I've was quite familiar with the songs as I've listened to the team singing them before although i still make some mistakes and having trouble memorising the lyrics... : p

During the pre-competition week,almost everyone were suffering from sorethroats,coughs, and lost of voice. And this included me as well which i didn't even know how i can get it..maybe it's due to the contagious virus. Wherever i go,for sure i can hear coughing sound without fail...as if i've caught an acute bronchitis or something...i have not recovered even until now...T_T...everyone took extra care of their voices in terms of their food intakes and all(excluding me...LOL). The team even had a movie session(The Lion King) as well as a sharing session to bring up the emotion and passion...it was no doubt that the seniors were quite emotional throughout the week where they cried a lot...for instance,MC cried as well as the other 3rd years cried when they were singing our past competition song "Belaian Jiwa"...(u guys miss me issit?LOL... : P)...Actually from the bottom of my heart,I do feel very bad and left out whenever I didn't join them or even teach the juniors properly as i felt that we are one and I should have been more matured in time management...T_T...please forgive once again...


On the competition day itself, I didn't join the team for the rehearsal as I was having an exam on the exact time of the rehearsal starts...and that even attracted a spy that followed the team round and round like a merry-go round...LOL...Right after lunch time,everyone started busying with their make-ups and all...and as usual, "Terence's Salon" was launched once again...luckily I had some assistant like Spring & Chun Hui to help me out...after putting up the costumes and dinner, we had an extra session of exercise(1st time for the my 3 years on a competition day)during the warm up(the invisible chair)...I guessed that helped to do some final touch up to our voice qualities due to the emerging of some new strong rivals... : p....The prayers were quite special this time as I can notice that ES was reading it from a paper?(i guessed)...after ES finished the prayers,he came in between me and Spring and held our hands very tightly...I couldn't stand Abang Soo's prayers and I've just teared with the others...MC cried very badly as she had totally lost her voice and insisted us to sing for her...T_T





Once we've reached DTC, the juniors were quite nervous especially Ah Hee where he kept telling me and yee chang that he was nervous...awwhh...adorable~~I've acted like a clown in order to keep everyone stay calm...during our singing,the seniors were quite shocked with the effect,Shiao Tan broke down to tears when the 1st shivering line of the song was sung(MC was the pasu bunga of the melody,left Mian Yi singing alone)everyone was very nervous...after the singing,everyone was so relieved and even Ying Chong cried..LOL...i was quite disappointed when ES told me that the basses couldn't be heard...I've guessed that for sure that this time would be different and we couldn't expect for the 1st placing anymore...everyone was screaming in joy when we were running towards the front of DTC...MC broke down and cried again and all the 3rd years including Mandy,Ash,Me,Guang Han and Spring hugged her and cried as well...T_T(a lot of crying huh)....

The most heart stopping moment came when the result was about to be announced...Ray was very worried and started to cry while Shiao Tan held his hands and tried to calm him down...all of us were holding each others hands...everyone was quite relieved when 6th got the 3rd placing...the most exciting moment was when the 2nd place were to be announced...it belongs to the 2nd college...everyone was shocked~~at that point,I've guessed that everyone knew the answer for the next placing...once it was announced,we jumped so hardly to the air with joy...all of us cried and hugged each other..."I couldn't believe it!We've done it,Terence,we've done it!!" Ash yelled in tears...the other audiences were staring at us as if we were the actors of a drama!
It was indeed unbelievable and out of our expectations...

As usual,we went to celebrate the achievement at the McDonald's in SS14...we had a lot of crazy moments in the party room that really annoyed the other customers of the outlet... : p... Once again,thank you to all the mentors and members that gave each others a chance to have such a splendid moment of this lifetime...


I wished that we will never say good-bye~~~
