Hey guys, it's been a while since the last time I post in my blog.
Life has been really great for me. I am here in Dublin for almost 2 months already. I've settled down and life's are getting tougher everyday. Study, assignments, meetings, sketch practices, badminton matches, music, jamming sessions, photography, trips and vacations... gosh, I can list all the activities and blog about them. But I won't, because that will make me sounds bad for I love what I am doing.
Well, let's talk about music. The first time I got involved in music was when I went to Sunday School in Saratok's chapel. Since then, I am interested in learning music but I've never really get the chance to learn and take a higher step in it. When I was 14's, I joined the marching band in my secondary school but the dream couldn't go further due to solicitation by our former school's principal in refusing to fund for the school band.
My dream doesn't stop right there. After SPM, my mom actually suggested to me to go for piano lesson and of course, I couldn't agree more! Right after National Service, I went for piano class for 1 month. I managed to learn how to read notes. Since then, my passion in music over-whelmed my life.

I starts to learn to play guitar when I was in KMB (during 2nd year). I learned guitar by myself with the help of a chord book. My method of learning guitar: Have a chord book, open your favourite song and play along with it provided there are chords available for the song, of course. I still remember how hard for me to get myself to play chord B when I first started playing guitar. It took me 3 months to get it right.
Not enough with piano and guitar, I dare myself to learn to play drum. And I really glad I did. I even play in a band and the best thing is, our band won the 2nd place in KMB talentime! Woohoo! When I went to PMC, I took a further step where I would practice drumming at least once a week. I got to learn a lot when I was there.
Plus, I also got myself an electric guitar and had jamming sessions with my friends. Since I got an electric guitar, I fall in love with punk rock music. Heavy distort and up-beat drumming, everyone is totally enjoy it when we jams.
Now, in Ireland, I am really glad that my parents allow me to involve in music despite knowing that I am doing medicine.
Music is a way for me to express myself and cope with my daily life's stress.
Music connects and unites everyone. That's what I believe and it will always do, now and forever.
