Choir (Tabung Haji)

Some of you might be wondering why I didn’t update my blog for so long. Well I have been so multitasking these few days. I have tons of works on my office table and I have finance course to attend. Latest, I have to sing! Can you imagine how talented a clerk who works at Inland Revenue? :P

We handled an event at Tabung Haji Complex – Pidato Hasil (final stage among schools in Penang including mainland). There were 4 schools from island and 6 schools from mainland. Very talented I’d say…

Instead of Pidato Hasil, we had 3 shows which were choir from Inland Revenue Board, choral speaking and traditional Malay dance by Convent Green Lane School.

We went to Tabung Haji on Monday for rehearsal around 2pm. The rehearsal finished at 5pm. The rehearsal sucks I’d say…

On the stage... rehearsal

Choral speaking... rehearsal

On Tuesday, we went there by bus. Waited at the lobby at 7.30am and guess what? The bus reached at 8.15am with a reason “I thought I should fetch you guys in front of the school”. What the hell fetching us in front of the school? Felt like slapping that bloody driver. Lucky, I’m a patient guy ;)

This was how the stage looks like...

When we reached there we were so hungry. Yes, 7.30am at the lobby… what do you expect? No breakfast of course! Argh! After singing Negaraku and waited for our turn again at 12, we went to the café for our breakfast. I had toast with butter and marmalade. I wish they had half boiled egg. Nevermind…

Relaxing at the cafe...

Around 10am we had tea break. They served Bihun Putih (to those who don’t understand Malay at all it means white thin noodle… ring a bell?) with coffee. I ate just a little bit. The coffee was yummy.

At 12, it was our turn. While preparing ourselves behind the building, I saw a durian tree. So many fruits on it… and the tree wasn’t tall at all. You just could pluck them all (I’m 180cm tall) just that you can’t pluck durian like that; you have to wait until the fruit drop on the ground. Oh by the way, the teachers praise us and that made our director so proud. Even though, the rehearsal sucks but this time it was great I’d say ;)


Malay Traditional dance... the 3rd show after choir & choral speaking

When the event finished, we had lunch there. The lunch was so delicious. They served Nasi Bryani with spicy “sambal” prawn, soy sauce chicken and I got my favorite part which is drumstick, some vegetable, fruits and syrup. Yummy!

After lunch, it was photo shoot session with the directors and others. Went back around 2pm and reached office at 2.30pm. Couldn’t do any work… the aircond in the bus was terrible and my head was spinning! Still I checked some housing loans on my table and drove home at 4.30pm.

I won’t be in the office until Friday. Have 2 days course at IRB, Bukit Mertajam… SAGA Century.
