Assalamualaikum. WOWOWOWOOWOW! I am super happy! I've managed to step on the Esplanade Concert Hall prestigious stage and performed there for 33 minutes. Wow! The feeling is so ... The feeling is just far beyond words to be explained. I will never ever forget this golden experience. So great!

I came late for the sound check but luckily I was just on time when the Smith band was just about to go on stage for the sound check. I got my Artist Pass but my name was spelled wrongly. Sad, but never mind. At 5.30p.m, we had our lunch at the Artist Lounge. The Muslim players got Nasi Lemak for dinner. Quite nice. After dinner, I went back to my dressing room and dress up (i mean put wax on hair and wear the tie and look good!) Hahahaha... I love the dressing room. 1st class! That was the first time that I wore my school tie and people were admiring it except that it does not goes with our uniform. Afterwhich, I went to find my other Innovian peeps and took some photos. Only met Maslyn, Jacelyn, Yong Ting(my SAX partner) and Qing Yun.

At 7.30p.m, all Smith Band members were supposed to be in the dressing room with their instruments all tuned. I was not that nervous due to the fact that I am going to be alone performing. I was all ready to perform by then.

The time that I was waiting for had finally came. We said "Good Luck" to one another. I walked confidently to the stage and was all set to perform. Gosh! the lighting was damn bright. I could not even see the audience clearly. All thanks to the blaring light. We started off the performance with American Elegy. I must applaud the guy from Tampines Junior College to be audacious enough to go up on the 3rd floor to play the solo part there alone. He played the solo part excellently. Oh ya, I played my solo part also for the first time. it was because during all the rehearsals, I never play my solo part until the performance day itself. Luckily, I did not screwed it up. Then we move on to In the Persian Market. Love this piece with the piccolo solo and the oboe solely. Mr. Tay left the stage and gave it all to Mr. Lim. He raised his baton and we started playing the energetic piece of Emperata Overture. Continued with the soothing Howl's Moving Castle Theme Song and lastly ended our performance with the upbeat Amparito Roca.

Wow! I played most of the part and managed to do some of the running notes. Hahaha... Subjugated! Went back to the dressing room and kept my dear tenor saxophone into the casing and left to Lixian's room. We went to the stage entrance from the backstage and watched the other performance.

Everything ended at 10.50p.m. For some who wondered why I never say anything about the incident that happened after the show, I just do not want to insult some people. Hahaha...

We went to have a drink at the MakanSutra. Maslyn, Ismail, Jacelyn and I took the same cab home to Yishun. I reached home at 1.05a.m. Hahahahah... The day was superb! This whole thing left a big print in my heart and it will never be erased away!
