I write songs, I sing them... I play the piano and a little bit of the guitar.. I've released 5 albums of music, I love the scent of freshly fallen rain and the scent of lavender on bedsheets. I would drink tea all day long if the caffeine didn't keep me up at night. I hate driving in L.A traffic. I would love to one day catch the squirrel that steals the plums from my tree and make him a pet. I don't watch TV anymore. My 3 year old daughter is more entertaining than any TV show could ever be :)

Prelude to 'Beautiful Seed' Concert Part 2

[Tuesday, 31st July 2007, 7-10 p.m]

It was great to meet the string players again.
Max and Aloysius, Jit Min, Bing Ling, Rosalind, Wei Ming,
Olivia Guo were there.

We rehearsed all the songs that had string parts in them.
And the rehearsal went well.

Thank goodness Lionel, the stylist was free this morning
to help me pick out some clothes.
We had a bit of teh, food at the kopitiam upstairs
before picking out some clothes from BCBG Max Mara at
Wisma Atria for the concert.

We ended up picking out three outfits just in case I needed
them. A pear green flouncy, strappy top, a fitted black top with
flowy sleeves and finally a black dress-like top with strappy
ribbons to tie around the back.

I then rushed back to Raffles City where we met for
lunch with Ee Ee Rosalind, Ee Ee Elizabeth, Uncle Dominic,
Ee Ee Monica and Papa at Din Tai Fung. Lunch ran from
12.30 - 1.20 p.m and it was great to catch up with my aunties

Then uncle Patrick Ho, the NUS driver picked us up and
sent us to the UCC Hall at NUS where we had a band rehearsal
from 2 p.m to 6 p.m
And then the string players came to join us for a full rehearsal
from 7-10 p.m. By the end of the day, I was so tired and
just glad to get back to the hotel to rest.

[Thursday, 2nd August 2007]

Today was supposed to be a rest day, but we
ended up having a couple of interviews to do.

The first was an interview for the Front TV show from
Arts Central channel. I met with the TV crew at the Ink Bar
downstairs at Raffles the Plaza from 4 p.m - 5 p.m
where Yin conducted the interview.

The interview went well and I also had a nice time
meeting with the staff from the Ink Bar.

After this, Evelyn, (who is helping with promotions on this album)
and I left to go to Mediacorp where I would co-host from 6-8 p.m
with DJ Shan Wee of 98.7 FM.

Shan was a pleasure to work with and I was surprised to know that
he had been in Singapore for just a little over 2 years and that
he spent most of his life in Ireland. We swapped stories about
living overseas away from family and also talked about the music
we liked.

He convinced me to do a 'Corrinne May sings the classics' segment
where he got me singing to rap lyrics! We both cracked up at
how funny it sounded and I thought he was pretty creative for
coming up with the angle. It was also pretty fun to do an
acoustic version of the chorus to Metallica's 'Enter Sandman'!
Fun :)

Altogether, a good time hosting with Shan and on the programme,
we also played 'Shelter', 'Leaving' and 'On The Side of Me' from
the 'Beautiful Seed' album.

After the show ended, I headed back home, but
not before stopping by Holland Village to Da Bao a pack
of Chicken horfun for dinner.

Hi Corrinne, I realized that we like the same food. Did you have the duck rice from the famous boneless duck rice stall along the "13 turns" road near NUS, before your concert on Aug 3rd? Hmm, can't think of think of the actual road name :) You also like the chicken horfun from the aircon restaurant from Holland V. And you also like "Lao Shu Fen". We're one healthy bunch, minus the duck skin! We should have a fan outing someday, if possible ;)
