yep! syf is finally over. for those who arent informed yet.


Congrats everyone! i know we did not get what we want, but at least, the efforts we put in during the past 4 months are really something to treasure. getting a silver or gold is just a title given to us. it is the process everyone has gone through to achieve it that matters. because of syf, everyone has come from all walks of life to work together as a team.. because of syf, new friendships have been formed.. because of syf, everyone had grown so much. no matter what we got, everyone has achieved a gold with honours in my heart..

during the past 4 months, we have put in so much effort and manage to master our syf pieces. compared that to some other jcs which had started since last yr, everyone is really remarkable, given the fact that some of us dont even have any guitar or music background at all. everyone is really remarkable..

that's why i am very confident to say this: GOOD JOB GUYS! We have made it! although we did not get what we want, im very proud of everyone! thank you all so much for the efforts put in. you guys are the best!:D the memories we had shared, i will keep it in my heart forever..

thank you mdm khoo and miss chin for putting in your best and not giving up on us even though we started late. thank you mr toh for all your efforts to groom everyone to where we are today. thank you mr moh, for spending your precious time practising with us even though you are working. thank you grace for conducting us. thank you everyone in syf, for teaching me so many things. thank you everyone else for supporting us one way or another. thank you all so much!

we can only place our hope in the hands of our juniors now. two years later, AGE is going to get GOLD! hasta la vista, we'll be back!=)

It is natural to feel sad considering the time and effort put in rehearsing the 2 syf pieces during the past few months. But silver is also recognition of the hard work put in.

Sometimes it is not the end result that matters most. The journey that you all have taken together in the preparation would become part of a beautiful memory. Memories which are uniquely yours and which no silver or gold can replace.

As I sat there in the audience just below the adjudicators watching the lot of you performed, it warmed my heart to see the joy of playing the guitar shown on your faces and body movement. I am sure the judges would have sense the serenity and grandness of Eine Kleine. The joyfulness of So Nice would have rub off them too.

Quoting Mr Toh's words on the return journey, you all are like diamond, given more time and polishing, the brilliance will daze. Grace has also grown from a little pupa to a beautiful butterfly.

Well done one and all. It has been a wonderful experience working with this batch of enthusiastic guitarists. May the sound of the guitar shine ever as bright. Resonating your heart throughout the night.
