Today was like a rollercoaster ride!
Excitement for the senior high’s syf, nervousness for them, proud of their awesomeness, anticipation with whole zheng while listening to the syf results in republic poly, linking arms with each other.
Heartbreak when JH zheng got gold. Heart shatter when SH zheng got gold..
Everyone cried ):
But in my freaking opinion, we did the best we could and we got gold.
Thats more than enough as we were there for each other, we hugged each other, we cried and laughed with each other, we did our zheng WHOOSH, we cheered,for ourselves!
Great job done to other schools too though!
Looking at the other schools who cheered and screamed their heads off when their school got gold, and looking at ourselves, i couldn’t help but wonder why were our reactions so different?
Maybe its because of our high expectations and the confidence our dear teachers had in us…
Just can’t help feeling emo and depressed, FOR NOW.
but its not bad, from this whole process of SYF i felt strong strong zheng love.
Miss teo and Miss Lau’s zheng photocard for us
Miss teo: that freaking touching email for us,all the things thats she has done!
Darryl:good job 人们! don’t care what other ppl think, but we were definitely the best 2 teams there! damn happy to have been through this with you guys! saying that he’s sad seeing that we’re sad
Jerald: People laughed, when we said “it was tough”,
They jeered and mocked, and through it we sulked.
No one believed in us, all because of a curse,
the curse that hurt, that upset, that pierced,
our delicate hearts.
So we start. We start working hard, making our way to the top.
But we stop, is this what its all about?
Giving our best just for the results?
Practice is all but without,
The love for our music, and it makes us sick.
So what if you are able to play with a stick?
So what if you can play it doubly quick! I don’t give a ****!
Because this is not what we came for, not what we saw,
the change of the law, the music without withdraw.
Its the music that left us in awe. And though should we crawl,
we wont brawl, but we will make it past that wall.
That’s all that matters, as we go about destroying our haters.
ALL HAIL GUZHENG TUAN! :)
Yanlei: during the past one to two years, we have being working so hard. We cry, we overcome obstacles, we work hard, we laugh, we sing, we play, we support each other and WE are having so fun together! Tomorrow is the big day where we show our bond, our spirit, our passion and OUR love for one another through music. Let’s do our best tomorrow and achieve excellence because it is what we deserve after all those that we had gone through. Towards the same goal, we make our final sprint!
Shuqi: TO ALL MY BELOVED JUNIORS: ALL THE VERY BEST TOMORROW.
We have come this far and I have faith in every one of yall. Be confident! Put a smile on each other’s face yeah (: The most important is to enjoy this journey together - it’s really all that matter!
Arthur: 4hours to the great battle:
Together we had worked hard, shed blood and tears, sacrificed countless amounts of time to perfect our techniques. Tomorrow we will reap what we had sowed so meticulously. The seeds of our efforts will blossom into sturdy and proud flowers, the very seeds which survived the strong winds, rain and thunder, which so desired to pull us down. Tomorrow, with immeasurable fortitude we will march into the battlefield. We will exhibit what our masters had so painstakingly taught us, as with our sharpened swords we penetrate through enemy defenses, sweeping across this dark, fearful battlefield with our radiance, igniting the enemy forces, before finishing them with a Coup de grâce; a blade through their hearts, the very hearts which held on to the belief of our failures. Now they knew they had all thought wrong. Tomorrow we will emerge triumphant and victorious. Tomorrow we ShowDown.
boonxuan:okok..the old fart's here to give a 'speech'..ANW! i heard about the results and it might not (is not) the one that you guys have been expected and everything and i know that you guys have been really upset about it.
my thoughts are that, for JH, i SERIOUSLY think you guys should be awarded GWH..you guys totally pwned the 2 groups before you and you guys sounded very good..:) whatever the results are, it's ok..gold is good also. Also, ttk also mentioned, what's the point of a competition? it's not about winning it. it's about having fun, participating. when you leave dhs, you no longer would be practicing with this group anymore, and you're gonna miss it. so, when u are here, just enjoy it and have fun with your friends. results are not important.:P
to SH, i thought u guys were awesome..some mistakes but not obvious..and i think we lost cuz our size of the group is too small..since its about qishi, we lost at that, but gold is the next highest which you have attained.AND, it's the first time SH actually joined SYF, and already got gold. so imagine the next few batches going for SYF, GWH is not far away.
and also! last piece of something..HAHA..:/ its seriously not about winning. it's the fun and all that you get to spend with your friends. you guys are lovely people and just enjoy the years you have in DHS.
ming quan: haha hello!! hey sorry for this late post, i was away for an exercise in NS these 2 days. Congratulations on getting gold! I'm really proud of you all! Yes i know you all wanted gold with honours, who doesn't? Nevertheless, musically-wise, gold is already a great achievement. And just as importantly, the precious moments that you all spent playing the guzheng together and the bonds you have formed is the other reward that you have gotten. Treasure it!
Haha, to the JH, if you want to work ahrd and improve some more, go ahead! Come back and fight again in SH and see how mcuh further you have gone. And to the SH, you could always come back to help the juniors to improve, even after you graduate (: Even though I couldn't be there, i really sense the unity in you all, let it stay strong!. Smiles (:

senior high giving nutella bread to junior high before syf, cui laoshi encouraging us even though we screwed up our rehearsal, just being there!
Now, i really wanna thank my sister for telling me to appeal in dhs using guzheng. and now i know so many amazing people from the diamond ensemble DHS ZHENG <3
Darryl is right. we were definitely the best two teams there. or rather one team (: in terms of our everything! <333333333333333333
okay bye dears, rest well and terrific job done(:
SYF rehearsal was great!
Even though we will not be playing as loudly, Mr Tay had helped us refined our sound projection and it sounded much clearer and not so za (as according to my recordings).
It is a great relief that we don't have to play until our (my) strings break or mas drop. PHEW. [My strings always break!]
But this gives us a problem with our da xiao sheng (loudness) We must really work very very hard on our movement and da xiao sheng (loudness). Since we are playing softer, the soft parts will be almost soundless! The places where we are suppose to be soft, please only touch the strings/notes and make minimal sound, i.e. not being able to hear yourselves playing, which is CORRECT! The places where we are suppose to be loud is good enough, KEEP IT UP!:D
This are the two main things that we have to take note in order to achieve excellence. JIAYOU! WORK HARD! COOPERATE!
And I can't believe that Murong and Yuru both broke their strings. Next time Murong should give eye contact to signal someone else, like Guyao to play if that really happen again, though it is not very possible as we are playing soft right? [However, do take note of this for future performances:D]
SH guzheng was soooo zai. I heard that Mr Tay asked you all to go home early right! - Meaning that he is satisfied. WOW. Juniors must look up on seniors kays! And learn from them!
JIAYOU FOR SYF EVERYONE!:D:D:D
Guzheng rocks and we love guzheng! <3
