So end-of-term holidays started a little while ago, which means two weeks free from the hassles of school assignments and SACs. Speaking of SACs, I've learned that I got 100% for the second skills test (i.e. SAC 4) for Maths Methods... I could've gotten 100% on SAC 3 as well, but for some reason I decided to write instead of . Oh well, 99% will have to do.
This holidays I plan to actually put some music stuff on the music page (you know, in place of the current ‘no content’ page)… We’ll see how that actually pans out soon.
Other stuff I’m planning to do is write more programs, because I haven’t really done any real programming for quite some time. If I write anything interesting, I’ll put it up here.
That’s all for now.Comments: none yet | Filed under: blog, life, school | Tagged: holidays, maths methods, music, programming

So I’ve now returned from a three day strings music camp. It was a lot of fun, although quite tiring once you’ve been rehearsing for more than a couple of hours. We had a good guest conductor, who used to go to GWSC as well. We played three pieces: Allegro from Sinfonia No. 6 in G Minor by J. C. Bach, Orientale (Op. 15, No. 2) by Alexander Glazunov and four of the Romanian Folk Dances by Béla Bartók. We’re going to be playing these pieces for the VSMF later in the year, which is the reason behind us going to this camp.
We also had a trivia night and challenge, in which we had to answer music related questions (the trivia) and perform a recreation of a famous movie scene (the challenge). It was an interesting experience, and my group came 5th, which is not a bad effort at all.Comments: none yet | Filed under: school | Tagged: bartok, concert strings, glazunov, j.c. bach, music, music camp, stephen chin, strings, VSMF

A couple of years ago, we bought a Wii as to encourage us to engage in ‘exercise’ and ‘physical activity’. We used it for games for approximately one and a half years, after which it sat there waiting for parties and special events. But then I had an idea; it’s connected to the TV, so why not use it to play videos on the big screen?Comments: none yet | Filed under: tutorials | Tagged: movies, music, stream, videos, wii
