National Day & Malaysia Day

Being chosen to sing Majulah Singapura was my proudest moment after the High Commissioner of Malaysia to Singapore concluded his speech with a toast to the President of the Republic of Singapore. I was accompanied by Summer on her guitar and Maya on her keyboard. This event also showcased Summer singing Negara Ku, Malaysia’s national anthem, and Maya performing two well-known Malaysian songs.

It was a very honourable once-in-a-lifetime experience for me to be chosen as the singer and  violinist for such an important state event. I had goosebumps and adrenaline throughout the performance, and I received praises from Minister of Health Ong Ye Kung, as well as from the MC. Through this experience, I learnt the importance of teamwork and musicianship, improved my vocal techniques and also gained a deeper knowledge of Malaysian culture.
