It's a busy time as year-end approaches. And X'mas and my hubby's birthday makes it extra special.
Our Filipino friend wanted us to have a taste of concert with Filipino flavour. Glad we accepted the invitation to Christmas In Our Hearts, as the music was special, delivered by Filipinos who are known for their musicality. His Excellency, J. Eduardo Malaya thrilled the audience on the piano. Popular singer-songwriter, Jose Mari Chan had us glued to his voice and jokes as he sprinkled them throughout the concert. Roars of laughter greeted his jokes and stories.
Having been to the Canctus Musicus' yearly concert on a regular basis, this 10th Annual concert had the church packed to capacity and more despite the rain . Word got round that the singers would be costumed. So, there they were an assorted group of Medieval folks presenting A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols.
My friend, Chan Nyim sang with the AYYC Choir. I wish I could sing like them! The youths of the Pastorale String Ensemble mad a special appearance to add variety .
It is always an early Christmas celebration at Selangor Cheshire Home. We had 2 choirs to usher in the festive mood - The Klang Valley Harmony and Kim Aw's friends. The residents of the Home also contributed items - Yoek Choy rendering songs as their singing ambassador and a fan dance by them in their wheelchairs.
Here's wishing all my Christian friends, A Blessed Christmas . Hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones.
