April's first trophy in 2013

April won her first trophy of year 2013 on 1 February. Both April and May took part in Chinese New Year Songs Singing Competition, which I have started to train them since the school reopened.

Due to our tight schedule, I didn't manage to send them to a professional music teacher to polish their skills in singing during the long school break that had just passed. Instead, I need to be more hard working in coaching them.

Every day, I just let them sing by following the karaoke CD at home. We also invested in a pair of Kenwood wireless microphones just to prepare them for the singing competition.
April and May with the contestants from April's class. May was taking part in Category Standard 1 and 2, whereas April was taking part in Category Standard 3 and 4.
I took a half day off on Friday, going to their school, helping them to change clothes, tying their hair and giving them moral support.
April won consolation prize in her cateogry and May didn't win any prize.
To me, they both did very well. Only May was a bit nervous, because this was her first time singing in her Primary school. April on the other hand, has more confidence and experience.


April sang 大家恭喜,May sang 天天好天.
I personally find that the selection of song is very important for a contestant. April had chosen a right song that she can perform well, but May had definitely got a song that only a few could do well.

Anyway, both got a thumb up from me for having the courage to go up on stage and taking part in the singing competition. Way to go, girls.

Here is the video of April singing 大家恭喜.

    3. yeah, the selection of song is absolutely important for every contestant.. you need to choose the right song for yourself, perhaps 天天好天 (the Astro/myFM CNY song??) isn't suitable for May??

  3. Congratulations April...! We are so proud to be friends with your Hot Mama who has such a talented daughter! You are very smart and determined. Yesterday I just watched the KBS channel showing how young contestants went to compete in the K-Pop show. Goodness so tough lah!

  5. Hot Mama can invite teacher to the house to teach since you are so busy running around. Lure the teacher to come and watch your baking demo with free cakes for her. When she comes, she has to coach your 2 kids. Tell her there is no free cakes in this world. LOL

  30. One thing i dont like is they way they made the kids knee down to snap photos. I know it's in order that no kids gets block but cant they just put a few chairs and let them sit down instead.

  31. April has got very good voice, she will sure become a very good singer if you send her to singing class. We send Pearl to a vocal class for half and hour once a week hopefully she will learn some singing technique from her teacher.
