1. For all J2's to have the discipline to manage studies and band!
2. For J1 Band Members to get settled down to JC life and work hard as a new band member
3. For all band members to be blessed with good health as this would be a very hectic year.
4. Every Band Practice will be productive and filled with fun and laughter, peace and joy.
ahaha. we are best at taking crazy videos man. well, here are some, featuring our very pamela kenneth and poon shi!!!
spooky videos. our speciality. =D
after kenneth's chase after chase after chase for band fund, pam finally lost it..
Poon picked up his clarinet and wanted to play something. To his surprisement, his notes came out all wrong!
Unable to stand his atrocious playing, pam once again lost it, and couldnt control her language.
Never one to give up easily, poon tried one last time. Finally, with the help of Hello Panda and some inspiration from pam, he finally did it.
he played notes.

Well done J1S!!! :)
haha so proud of the J1s:):):)...the scoreline may be 3-3 but the effort put in is really *applause!!!!!!!!!!!!*
it really wow me how u guys get hit with muscle cramps and all but not long after u've recovered, i see u on the field again... :):) wow...so determined and strong ppl *clap clap clap clap*
another thing that struck me was also how all of u just kept it all together, no one flare up or anything despite the mistakes and all, no pointing of fingers and all. you ppl jus kept it all going... *clap clap clap clap clap*
eventhough there were times when some of the decisions were obviously not what u deserve but u all jus gave way and kept on playing... once again *clap clap clap clap clap clap clap*

but overall, *applause!!!!!*

An ode to SAJC Band
Well, after racking my brains for 3 days I've managed to come up with a poem of sorts as John asked for. It's not perfect, I know, and if anyone else would like to write a different one(Lit students especially) then by all means, go ahead. But if you like it, say so, and I won't feel so bad when John puts this into the Time Capsule.
band practice starts now
here in the band room this morning;
hurry up and assemble the chairs
the conductor's waiting
we get tuning done much faster
though we love to chat with our friends;
but the music has to go on no matter what
and we know when our passion ends
is where you crescendo, and
tongue, maybe accent too, it's all one;
heed those words and listen up unless you
never want to hear the words "well done"
cares that our practices are long
it's true that our pain is our pleasure;
maybe squabbles, back-stabbing and bitching too
'cause times of trouble take our measure
look ahead to brighter days
each day has its own ups and downs;
we are in this together for better or worse
so live life to its fullest, it's just begun

ive ended my journey.
i must really say that what my seniors had told me bout band life here aint easy is really true and i now shall tell it on to the juniors. you'll defn come across obstacles that ARE impossible and stuff but we'll find a way thru. we defn will. you'll meet people whom you think are the bestest or the most fucked up. but are your thoughts right?? even if they are, they should be shoved right at the back of your minds! sajcband is FAMILY.
id never felt the "family" in sajcband until the very last night. a lil late it may be but at least i got the feeling.i suddenly see all the efforts and pain, joy come flooding back to memory. from saints e festiva, to the many performances, band camps and concerts. to me, i teareed. not cause im leaving but i thought i didnt achieve anything here in sajc.
throughout my presently, 6 years of band life, i'd only achieve one thing. and thats teaching 3 wonderful juniors of mine in sasmb in to GODDABEEESS!!!
. giving them all that i can. other than that? hurhurhur. NOTHIHG. well... until the farewell ceremony done by the j1s. (to deborah, i think my batch did it better! hahaha). i spoke a lil and i don think it made much sense. so it is again with more sense. my batch was the batch with the potential.but nothing much came out of the POTENTIAL. my section, weak it sure was.all the trouble of tonality and all. gosh! my section mates! all the obstacles we had gone thru! we started as a section of 6. now when its ime for us to step down, we're down to 3. sigh. we sure had a rough time. im not sume sorta PANSY alright. but i cried... i cried real bad many times!
on the very night after i spoke, we all split in to our sections for a lil talk and all. one by one. (thank you) they all opened up to me. it was only then that i knew all my efforts didnt go to waste and i actually did achieve something here in sajcband. the feeling was really sweet.i thought i had failed being SL and all but if i had actually changed some of my section mates' lives for the better, i hadnt failed, not one bit!
all in all. i hope you all understand the shit id written on top. sajcband is a band not only looking for musical excellence but FAMILY. to the J1s, enjoy your life here. im sure you'll miss it, ask the j3s and they will tell you the same thing! continue the legacy of sajcband and be part of it!
