Pianist In The Making

My neighbour is going to complain soon, his afternoon nap is rudely interrupted by my fingers dong-ing... C E G .. dong dong... D F A...on my piano on and off...

Well, my ex-colleague introduced me to join in this intensive course in becoming a pianist in just 1 1/2 years!  Sounds great... but can I be able to do it?  On one hand, I wanted to and on the other hand, once I sign up, I must be really committed otherwise I will be wasting my hard earned money.

I am really "big heart, small heart"... a number of factors.... I have a super poor memory and stiff fingers though I am playing with the computer keyword for more than 8 hours per day. *guilty*

How... how?? Should I join?  Fees are around 4-5K, I think....

Maybe I will go and attend the preview first, it is held in the Tower Regency Hotel on the 12th July, 2014 at 7.30pm...
My friend really made an effort to draw out some notes for me to practise at home...
That is why the dong dong dong in my house.... 
hmmmm... now... where is the C chord... Which finger... which finger.....

  3. Do go for it if the fees are not an issue. Nah, I don't think your neighbours will complain. Music is not noise.

  4. If you have the interest and can put into good use like playing for church choir, why not?...but price is a bit too steep. Whose else in the house is playing the piano.?

  5. Well, it is good to try something new, it keeps us young. It is a big commitment though. But after you learn, maybe you could play at church! And play and sing! We have a piano and I have always wanted to play. Phil plays and he plays at church. I think it depends on if you have the time, and if you really want to! Let us know your decision!

  6. P.S. the rock is real, it is not painted. They are like geodes. When you cut them open, then you find the beautiful color. They were formed in lava beds in pre-historic times.

  12. That is intensive and super fast course. People need to learn many years to master all the keys! Yeap, you should check out the preview first then decide. Need to commit yourself and practise most of thd times.

    used to play organ when I were small and quit when i went to further my study. My organ has been idle for nearly 20! Gosh! Dont know I remember to play or not.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
