Round-up for the week

Reading Time: 1 minuteI know I should blog for the week, but I simply do not have the time to go over all the stuff that I did for the past one week on the weekend. So here is the round up, and hopefully I catch these up some how over the weekend: Beneficiary Visit to a certain primary school on Wendesday Ballooning Bliss Grand Finale preparation and actual day.

Music Progression

Music Progression

Reading Time: 2 minutesI had another draft regarding my interest in choral music. I decided to trash it since it was becoming more of a recounting post. I try to keep it brief here. I always wanted to be in choir ever since primary school right after a performance my primary school choir put up during an assembly. I did not manage to join my primary school choir. Nonetheless, it did not dampen my enthusiasm. After primary school, I have joined 3 choirs…

Drawing on Water

Drawing on Water

Reading Time: 1 minuteWe have seen sand drawings so far. Now, there is water drawing! Not water per se. The artist, Huang Zhu Lin, uses another liquid which allows him to play with the shapes on water. Watch it! TGIF! Oh, do come down to Project Ballooning Bliss Grand Finale! It is happening tomorrow! See the Facebook event page for more details. P.S. There will be no mass release of balloons on the event itself. Activists rejoice!

Racial Harmony Day

Racial Harmony Day

Reading Time: 2 minutesYesterday was Racial Harmony Day. And this got me thinking: There are more discussions in the plurk thread, but due to privacy settings, most you can’t view it (and I can’t be bother with copying and pasting the texts). Back in secondary school, I was selected for some Racial Harmony Circle thingy, which by now, I have long forgotten the aim of such group. In Secondary 2 (or was it 3?), we set up a booth at a festival that…

Project Reach Causathon

Project Reach Causathon

Reading Time: 2 minutesOnce again, Daphne of XPR has invited me to partake in another event. This time, it is one of a social cause, or rather, social causes. Causathon is a portmanteau of ’cause’ and ‘marathon’ to signify that the race for cause is one long journey. Our destination is World Peace. There are 85 SMa students in 14 different teams taking part in this race. Each team champion different causes such as from helping transient workers to helping the folks who…
