my dad plays the erhu and flute,
my mum plays the pipa,
and of course in the early courting days
my dad pretended to learn the pipa from my mum
just to spend time with her :)
i think this performance made my parents very very happy :)
i was given the chance to perform with the Singapore Chinese Orchestra,
and one of my original songs 心型空洞 was arranged by Tan Kah Yong, in full-blown Chinese Orchestra style!!!
Kah Yong and his wife caught in the audience :)
It was great working with him the 1st time, and I was thrilled by the sound of my own song :)
with Quek Ling Kiong the conductor... he is awesommmee!
Super nice, with such flair and style in conducting
during rehearsals :)
i also played the erhu on the traditional piece called 赛马
(playing in front of the full-time pros is no joke!!)
my sweet papa
the end of a great experience!
my darling mummy

my only regret is that this chinese orchestra version will only be available as a live fuzzy youtube one.
ps. love the 萧 solo in the interlude!!!

My song is officially A Hole in Heart Shape.
Ok, the original meaning of Heart-Shaped Hole doesn't sound terrific either.
And it is
"a popular song composed by Tay Kewei, this piece expresses the laments of the heartbroken female lead who can't bear to give up her lover who has continuously let her down."
My first official introduction of my song on print!
Thanks to Eriol, Nicholas Tan and many more for the lovely photos!
And to everyone who dropped by! :)
