Gabby's Farewell Party

I still can't believe Gabby has to leave us!!

Just so you know, Gabby is one of the choir member in the 11.30 mass' at our church. She's singing alto and I do too, so we always sing together and since I am not really good in harmonizing the melodies, she helped me a LOT! She's soo angelic, like seriously! She's kind and friendly and mature and... oh well, too much to be mentioned, but I *and i'm sure other people too* like the most from her is her beautiful voice and how she tries to improve her talent~! Although I just know her for about 4 months, I'm really touched by her kindness and how she has been helping me especially in the choir...

As she'll be leaving on Tuesday, so today our choir members arranged a little farewell party for her. Things that amazed me a lot is Annie's cute handmade farewell card and Aunty Cynthia's gorgeous cake! Both of them are incredibly talented! xD

A beautiful song from The Phantom of the Opera


The Phantom of the Opera is a musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber, based on the French novel Le Fantôme de l'Opéra by Gaston Leroux. The central plot revolves around a beautiful soprano, Christine Daaé, who becomes the obsession of a mysterious, disfigured musical genius. The Phantom of the Opera opened in the West End in 1986, celebrating its 25th anniversary in October 2011. It won the 1986 Olivier Award and the 1988 Tony Award for Best Musical, and Michael Crawford (in the title role) won the 1986 Olivier and 1988 Tony for Best Performance by an Actor in a Musical. It is the longest-running Broadway show by a wide margin, the second longest-running West End musical, and the third longest-running West End show overall. (wiki)

Seriously, I have the-phantom-of-the-opera fever once I downloaded this song. Yes yes, I know I'm pretty late, I always like that, but really I did not know about this movie until I found the song! Surprisingly, two days ago one of my friend mentioned something about this musical, then I asked him curiously, "You watched that??" and he answered with happy smile, "Yes!". That makes my fever worser... The song is soo great *and it's sarah brightman!*, oh I love it so much~

By the way I can't find the movie anywhere on web... Maybe I should buy one when I go back to my hometown...

Guys, Christmas Day is coming~! Can you believe it?? Seriously, I feel that it's just yesterday we decorate our christmas tree and next month we'll do it again! I am SOO EXCITED!

There's something different for my Christmas Day this year, I crochet as christmas gift~ Actually we do not really celebrate christmas in my hometown, just go to church and that's all *or maybe simply listen to christmas songs..*. That's why I am so curious how does it feel giving people our own handmade gift *in this case,crochet*, 'Will they like it?' or 'Will they spot the wrong stitch that I accidentally did?'. I can't wait to give it!

Before I started doing the bag, I buy these yarns and knitting needles *i cant knit, but it's just too shiny and kept looking at me.. =P* from Jet Sun Trading, Sg. Wang. The aunty there is so friendly~! We can also get a free teaching there if we buy from them, pretty nice, isn't it? I have to try to learn with the aunty next time!

let's start~
