Drum Lessons And Stuff
Then when I alighted at Outram Park for the NEL (North-East Line), there was this stop where people in groups of 4 entered. They seemed to be in some "Amazing Race" competition. The back of their T-shirt wrote "Uniquely Singapore Race". I wonder what it could be. So I went to their site and found this:
"The Uniquely Singapore Race 2006 is a 2 day one night round-singapore adventure, akin to Amazing-Race style competition, with 100 teams of full time tertiary students from polytechnic and universities battling out to be the top positions in the race. The fastest teams for the race receive prizes worth over $4000 dollars!
Young adults can learn about just how unique Singapore can be, and even introduce these perhaps unknown places and facts to their tourist friends next time they visit - through a pumped up adventure! The non-profit event is organised by approximately 30 pumped up young adults from NTU."
Upon reaching the place, I went to teach my students drumming. I would say that it's a community service thing where kids are able to learn to play the drum. Currently I have three students. They are all very eager to learn and show different talents in drumming. Some learn fast while some are good in keeping beat.
A boy aged 12. Able to catch things very fast.
A girl aged 17. Oldest student and the first student I had. Shows improvement and eager to learn. Listens to English than Chinese songs.
A boy aged 10. Youngest student who started today. Extremely hyped up as I was showing him the basics.
Well, so far, I have three students. Hopefully they will be able to benefit from my lessons.
Then as I was going home, I saw this man with a bag placed in front of him. In the bag was a dog. Now, scenes such as this isn't uncommon. The other day, I saw an auntie with a pram and in it was a dog. I guess it must be the "year of the dog" thingy that makes people do such things. Honestly, it's the first time in my life that I actually see such things happening. It really brings a whole new meaning to "walking the dog".
