Our maiden singing competition

11:09 Yannie 16 Comments

Thanks everyone for giving us encouragement and support  in the comment of my post on our singing competition. The date is here finally. Tomorrow, 2pm May and me shall step on to the stage to sing our competition song, 老人与小孩. Apparently, there is another teacher and student group singing this song too. T___T

There are only 11 groups. 3 teacher-student groups and 8 parent-child groups. By the way, we are the number 2 to sing. May didn't get to pick the number herself. She was informed by the teacher that she is the number 2. Fair?

Number 1 is a group of father and son. I am not happy with that number, because it is pathetic that number 1 and number 2 always don't get good marks from the judges. Sigh! However, my husband is so optimistic. He said, "Great! You don't need to suffer from anxiety for that long. After finishing the song, you can enjoy watching others and  have a good laugh."  What say you?

The red shirt guy is the 2nd runner-up of the previous year Astro Hua Hee Lai Kala singing competition. Their group is a potential champion the time. 


Anyway, I met other participants two days ago for some group photos taking by the media. Our competitors are all very strong. A mother and son group will sing this fantastic song,  "jiu gan tang bue bo(酒矸倘賣無)". A mother and daughter group will sing this cute song in Chinese version, "Lemon Tree" . Another mother and daughter group will sing Fish Leong's song, "大手拉小手". These 3 groups are very good, I reckon. 

I have tried to look up for ways to overcome stage fright. I have also browsed for tips to sing well in competition. I pray that I can stay focus, relax and calm. I must also have fun, enjoy and be myself. The most important is smile to fake the confidence. lol!

  3. Singing on stage still ok for me cos I tried singing on stage in the main hall of karaoke lounge before but ask me give a speech I will tremble, do you have the TV screen with lyrics in front of you or you have to memorize the lyrics?

  8. Yaya, the most important thing is to overcome the stage fright. Like 张家辉 said in that movie [激战]: 唔好怯啊 你怯你就输咗啦!

  9. Yes, just have fun Yannie and having this thought will not stress up... Joining in the competition is already winning already, you won many others based on courage.. not everyone have the guts to go up and sing! So... you are already a winner on that! :) Sing your heart out and keep us posted... !!
