TEAM UNO!

And I had no idea UNO could be so fun.

Anyways, the usual Saturday night group (Looi family, Koh family, Wah family, Shee family) ate out at Evergreen after vespers. Since Jasmine was around, we decided do something after. Turned out that the adults had the same idea as well. In the end, we went to our house; the dads watched football, and the women......talked. Per usual. AND.....the kids played TEAM UNO!!!!!!!! XD. I love that game. Darell, me, Eugene, Mei Xian, Jasmine, Eddy, Iise, and Aunty Sue were playing. The game got a lil crazy. I bet we screamed the house down. LoL.
Link, we'll play Team UNO during the next homschool meeting ok? WE MUST.
Have a great week ahead, ya'll! :)

Oh joy

Raymond: Are you sure you wanna do all that?!

Me: Mmhmm!

Haha. I had my first piano lesson of Year 2009 on Tuesday, and Raymond was suggesting possible pieces I could do for my LTCL. He was suggesting I do the Prelude Op. 23, No. 5 by Rachmaninoff, Sonata No. 62 by Haydn, and a 20th Century piece by Alberto E. Ginastera. Well, I did mention that I wanted to do that Haydn Sonata last year :).

So anyway, I got all excited and one thing led to another. I ended up bringing home seven pieces to *learn*. I'm probably gonna learn all of them and then decide on those I want to play for the exam. Whee...

I really wanted to learn Fantasie Impromtu by Chopin but it was in the ATCL syllabus. AND I DIDN'T KNOW! Gah. Oh well, I'll learn it in my "free" time. LoL.

Oh yes I'm gonna have fun.

**MX - Happy New Year Sweetie! Blog more often! Egh, I definitely sound hypocritical.

Prophet S - Haha. THAT would be perfect in your list. IMHO, you should really get a blog ;). muahaha..

Hui Ern - I saw the link to *your* blog somewhere. Can't remember. Btw, is your class blog banana themed? haha!

Adelyn - Hey! How did you get my blog link? Yeah I'm planning to study in the US. Gonna take my SAT this June, I think :). What about you?
