hie bandits. and to those who are not band members and are still reading this, hi~
it feels so....nostalgic when i was with jie today buying our army stuff. talking abt the great times we had in our 2 yrs. one wif benji's batch and one the current j2 batch. oh my, how time flies.... wed and thurs, thts all the time the remaining guys have left before they step into tekong. jie and deon.!~ kudos for lasting this long. buying army tshirt and singlet and the shorts, oh NOEEEESSSSSSSSSS....... no more pink ic wortzzzz....i feel damn sad lehzzzz.... (pardon me for the zzzz, hazelnut surong influence me to put those in)
anyway, i think it has been a wonderful and i really mean truly one of a kind experience wif each and every one tht has pass by my life in sajc band. esp my batch. im so grateful for having such a interesting batch. so many fun experiences. the soccer the non stop squabbling with mr peh and ms ho and of course sometimes within our own batchmates. the rollercoaster ride we had experience, from the transfering of andre addi kumar and myself to the challgenging for top band. i can firmly say tht this had been a experience that can nvr be written off by anyone. i felt tht my batch was so much more than just a passing band batch tht comes and goes. it has been more like a mini family, a home tht u could turn to with all the damn homework and A level stuff stressing u out. ( i so love u guys wortzzzzz)
well thts not really my point butttttt...... j2s now, u too can turn to ur batch, turn to each other and say 'hey, thanks for giving me such 'power pack' experience' . concerts are coming up, preps for it will make ur more busy and stuff....but hey ure all the very batch of sajc band. and i believe when i book out for the first time returning to potong pasir ave 1 for the upcoming concert, i will be like....WOW. i believe cos this is THE sajcband, there's so much more than just notes coming out of ur instruments but the non stop goosebump feeling. cya there on the concert day.

Being A Responsible Band Member
Tickets for the band concert were given out on Wednesday 12/4/06 and just mere 1 day after that, i began to receive ticket orders in Bouts. Kok just ordered 30 tix , my friend just called for 20 tix reservation AT least, peace wanted 25 more and there are more to come.
However, i'm having 2 conflicting emotions : Happy and worried. I'm extremely happy that the band tickets are so high in demand, that reflects on our popularity. On the other hand , worried about the progression of the band in preparation for the concert.
Let me give you an update: 20 more days to concert. And we haven touch Satchmo, played animation medley 3 times only, have not played Arsenal in 2 months ?,All those endearing young charms (Only during full band with Mr GLosz; thrice ), AND an encore piece not yet decided and played . Costumes and gimmick preparation are still not finalised !!! Now, people, are yyou getting the jitters ?
People, We must be RESPONSIBLE & ACCOUNTABLE for each and every ticket we sell. For every ticket we sell, we are ensuring the buyer the quality of our performance. We must live up to our reputation of Gold With Honours Band. By giving a substandard performance, it is as good as cheating their money. What would have become of SAJCCB then?
Be a responsible performer and a band member. Do your part by doing your individuals and know your parts WELL. I know of some jc 1s who are unprepared please do something. This concert is for the jc1s Perth trip, not for the jc2s. It's you all who should be more enthu about it.
JC 2, remember presentation night when we witness standing ovation from every single one in the Esplanade theatre? The glorious night, we had. Will this happen again?

hey fellow bandies! its been a long long long long time since ive come onto the band blog! haha. cause i suddenly felt the want again. everything is coming to me, or even more. well... basically most of us have at least 2 band lives. one in secondary school and the other right here in SAJCBAND. of course some may come from primary school bands or they have SYO,SWS etc. the point is... i thought i had lost it all for band. thinking that maybe four years of band is way way too much for me already. BUT, i now know its not over yet. and it wont be... GUYS (and gals)!!! my fellow batchmates!! let's leave SAJCBAND with a mighty huge BANG!!!not only for the 2 concerts or the year but in everything we do together! for a very long time i felt that im merely an appeal student to the band and that i dont see the point in reaching out to all you band members out there... i cant see SAJCBAND members as FAMILY. to me band was just a CCA. not any more kids! i know that this band may not be all that wholesome and "fresh", "tasty" but yeah, we are one batch!! this is what we are!! i hope whatever im typing makes sense to all of you! its just that, why do we stop super enthu stuff like SINGING our butts out loud in the cafe. even tho it may jus be something small but it shows alot actually. think bout kids. haha. maybe this will only concern me but, i now believe and understand the phrase, "band of brothers and sisters"... one band, one sound, one voice... you know what i mean? i really hope so man. just that we GOTTA work as ONE. ONE BAND!! it should not be the three leaders thinking of ideas and solns or a group of bandies thinking of stuff and choices for the rest of the band to choose from BUT all of us crack our heads together and THINK! that way... we wont really have much objections to decision/choices made by a FEW bandies. get what i mean... i believe everyone of us in the band would wanna work and have a say in everything the band is doing/gonna do. so YEAH!!! fuck... i think you guys most probably wont understand but aiyah... nvm. BAND LIFE is ... ... ...anyway right now... lets all work towards an awesome concert on the 6th of MAY yeah?? hahhaha. FULL HOUSE BABY!!! we better make sure the audience asks for 10000000000 encores!!! hahahhahaa.. then we will play till our lips tear!! hahaha. CHEERS SAJC BANDIES!!
