COUNTER // CULTURE

For my photography class I did series of self-portraits in which I attempted to portray culture and counterculture for the past 10 decades. This is the product of that idea…

this is SO COOL oh man

YEAH!

Was re-reading my Lu Guang Zhong book->

image

  Was particularly touched by the foreword:

"卢广仲·的摇滚之处不在于他的吉他出神入化,或是令人难以置信的海豚音,或是他起的比你早几小时,而是他认真地用自己的方式生活并且快乐” 

The next part was why 卢广仲 wanted to write this book:

"因为拥有的开心太多了,所以要把它的分送给大家!”

卢广仲 writes very honest, sincere and some may say whimsical songs. I love his songs because you can feel genuine emotions, usually positive ones- as compared to the usual sex, drugs & rock & roll feels from contemporary pop songs.

Looking back I don’t even know how I started to make music. Bought my first guitar in Secondary two- probably wanted to learn it cause Serene (ong) just bought one too. Was interested in Spanish flemenco styles then- my first guitar , Frezzie, is a spanish classical guitar bought from Bras Basah. Went with my mum and my parents sponsored half? of my guitar.

Started learning chords from guitar books-think I started learning from friends like Leelee. At one point I wanted to quit sailing and join the guitar ensemble. Was having a hard time in sailing- physical injuries to the spine honestly really depress me to no end.

In JC we used to bum around during free periods- Tiara and I would go play piano, sometimes Liren brought his guitar to school. Some days Jo, Rach and I will even try to dance ( but mostly just watching Jo do her choreo- I won’t forget Disturbia!) Other days Rach, Huiyi and I will go record Huiyi’s songs in the toilet- where the acoustics are the best. Hahaha. And of course Friday (?) mornings after PE meant like 2-3 hours of basketball before lunch and more classes. 

The first song I wrote is ‘A Way Out’. This happened at 2-3am in the theme room one. For some reason the Eggtarts were high and just chillin (after a prac session I think?). I remember Yi-min and I went to microwave the Pop-In-A-Box popcorn that Audz bought me previously. Then we brought it down and a bunch of us were learning drum beats from Darren on the makeshift box. Hahaha. Val was in theme room one studying HAHA. 

It was there where I typed down my first lyrics for A Way Out. Quite hilarious:

"Hey girl whatchu looking for, we’re looking for a magic pearl"

The lyrics changed over time but HAHA that was my first song. Improved the rifts and strumming as I grew in guitar playing haha.

This is my journey in performance- with friends & gradually, solo sets as well. 

My first public performance was with Jieting & her temple friends. We put together a long national day medley and performed at her temple as well as in a secondary school. Please imagine my pile of frazzled nerves as a first time performer. Want to thank Jieting for being part of the start :)

As you can see most of my performance opportunities come from CAPT. Am infinitely thankful and amazed that the entire journey started from this place. Thanks to Guitarpella and also Jam City. As a kid I didn’t sing at home- shy maybe. Only sang quietly in my room. When I moved out to CAPT- suddenly I had the freedom to do whatever I want. Make music in an environment free from any pressure.

A very important part of this journey is my supporters. They consist of my friends and family, and sometimes strangers and acquaintances. Am touched and flattered, but I know I have to keep working hard. But meanwhile I’m really touched for friends who make it for my performances, or listen/share my music. Thanks for listening guys. Honoured to have some of your ear time.

Time to find my anchor and go hard in the direction I decide on. No time to lose.

Ballerinas are the most underrated athletes.
GUYS SHE IS SPINNING ON HER TOE.
ALL HER WEIGHT ON HER TOE. 
HER TOE.
TOE.

Thank you someone for finally acknowledging this.
People always make ballet seem like such a wimpy, easy sport. 
While we are dancing, we have to:
turn out our feet
hyper extended our knees
tuck our buts under
flatten our stomach
close your ribcage (to the point where you cant breathe)
shoulders are down and back
elbows are lifted
hands and fingers are soft
neck is long
use proper head movements
ALL THIS WHILE STILL IN OUR STARTING POSITIONS NOW DO ALL THAT WHILE MOVING AND LOOKING GORGEOUS. AND EFFORTLESS
You try holding your leg by your head without touching it and turning on the tips of your toes and wooden shoes and tell me ballet isn’t hard.
People always say “don’t be a ballerina” and “don’t be such a pussy”
when really ballerinas and vagina’s are probably the most hardcore things
AND BALLERINAS WITH VAGINA’S ARE JUST STRAIGHT UP METAL
SO DO NOT TELL ME BALLET IS FUCKING EASY AND NOT A REAL SPORT

Most ballerina’s are also known for dancing until their feet bleed, bandaging them up and getting back on with the show.

ballerinas are fucking hardcore ok 

Ballerinas are fucking metal

有你的感觉,真好

These few days have been a blast :D

Just came back from ECP !!! Jioed a bunch of people from CAPT. Am super thankful for the sunny weather (previous night’s forecast was thunderstorms over the east) & even more so for the fun company!!

image

With the pretty flowers :>

We cycled & bladed! Thanks weixuan for this convenient shop at Blk 80. Sadly the rollerblades rental was EXORBITANT!! $10 for the first hour and $7 for every additional hour. Siao liao.. Wenyi decided to rent a bike instead. Ohwellz ><. 

Some topics that came up during blading/cycling-> Haha Wenyi mentioned this concept called ‘remembering to forget’- something she learnt about in class! It’s like me blogging- so that I can offload everything and like get on with my life. Place the memories somewhere probably more reliable than my own brain.

Found a tortoise by a patch of grass and they named it Crystal. LOLOL. The two boys transported it back into a pond- holding it in their hands/frisbee while cycling up/down slopes UP THERE HAHA! The amount of judgey faces they had to face while holding the tortoise lolol.

image

image

Emo shot of Crystal.

AHAHA. but the real Crystal baked NOMMY CHOCOLATE CHIP CHOCOLATE COOKIES!! I am currently in trusted custody of the entire supply muahahahaha. 

image

Us at the jetty :D Never actually been out there before- a pretty place with a lot happy fishermen and families. Would be perfect if there was an ice cream man!!

image

Yay to blading :D Been a while since I’ve hit the road in ECP. Got to soak my feet in the sea while waiting too heheh. Passing by NSC also gives me soooo many feels. Meanwhile I still suck at slopes- one slope really made my heart kinda go crazy haha was gripped with fear LOL

We went at it for an hour or two before having lunch at Subway & sugar cane juice yay. Escape into an air-con place ahhaa.

Went to Chomp Chomp for the first time :D Yay to old company- rolled my eyes SOOOOO many times that night HAHA. Yay to yummy food too :D Thanks JT and Ong for the car rides! Went to ong’s current place- LOL deja vu much?!?!? 

Unfortunately no group photo but we have a glam #nofilter shot of the belated birthday girl-> 

image

I was really amazed by the hugeass cup of sugar cane juice omg.

image

Love you all xoxo :D 

Also met up with LEELEEEEE to celebrate her birthday!!

image

Hansup ice cream with our triple scoop of sea salt caramel, green tea & belgian chocolate. NOMZ!! This is at Ice Cream Gallery anyways. 

image

image

Also had fries at Smith’s :D Had lots of fun catching up :) Really cool to hear about Leelee’s workplace and sharing silly things and cute instagram animals. Hahaha. And of course playing with filters and shit like that :D

Went home and just about finished Great Expectations by Charles Dickens- a book I have been reading over several weekends. Liked the twists at the end- it gradually became more exciting! 

Also read A Thousand Acres - won a Pulitzer prize. Maybe it’s the subject matter but I’m not very impressed. *shrugs* Ah well. 23/100 :) Lezzgo!!

More pictures from earlier on the week-> me and cha at our movie date :D ie. the gongcha boy day

^ Me at my first paid gig. Thanks ONG :DDD <3 

It was fun but I got moved from 2nd slot to third because I didn’t need an amp- waiting around makes me S-U-P-E-R nervous. Ended up being painfully shy though yes I delivered the songs. AGHHH LOL

The crowd was quite nice, though really testing their patience haha so many acts while they eat. I guess I’m a cafe singer- with the genre that I sing. Will upz my guitar skill !!! And.. hope to come back strong after a hiatus- with a public gig possibly? :D We’ll see after my graduation and overseas trips!

Ending this post with a legit picture of my EAR.

You have no idea how hard it is to take a selfie of your ear.
