We had great Sunday today. Started at 7.30 in the morning, many of us assembled at Khatib MRT. The rests went directly by other means. We reached Potong Pasir CC at 8.30am ready to rock the place. We had some time to do warning up and to test the sound system. This is a lesson we learnt the hard way from past performances.
The performance started at 9.30am sharp with the minions accompanying all our songs throughout.
Yuki and Alison started the event with a Japanese song Kaze ni Naru (Become Wind) from the Neko Ongaeshi movie, followed by the Europa. You can watch the recording of the latter here.
Next we had the performance by our Three Musketeers with their mashed up song. It was a showcase of what we could do to enjoy music if we knew how to play musical instrument like ukulele.
After that we had the trio Zhi En, Annabella and Alston performing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. The song was arranged by Cousin Jamie with three parts: melody, chord strumming and arpeggio.

Finally Yuki and Alison came back with the song It’s Time (Imagine Dragon). The performance was closed by a Medley of Malay national songs that everybody knows. The crowd followed us in singing.
We then had a sumptuous finger licking good breakfast courtesy of Peter Sensei before we continued with our next performance.
This time we went to Punggol Riviera. We visited the Bright Hill Evergreen Home to perform for the elderly residents. The whole team enjoyed it very much and I sincerely hope that the people there enjoyed our presence as well. This visit was made possible by the help of Kelly Tan, General Manager of Diamond Wisdom.
Although I was exhausted, I had a great bonding session with my children and our members. While enjoying our ukulele music, I also had a chance to do charity by sharing the joy with old folks at the home. I do believe we had provided a bit of companionship to those lonely people.
In ending, I’d like to encourage all members to join us in next events and outings.
