A DIARY OF AN ANGKLUNG PLAYER BEFORE A PERFORMANCE

NOTE: Although we meet regularly once a week for practice, we still need to go for an intensive training session before a performance especially when there is unforeseen circumstances. There could be group members who could not join in the performance because of family issues etc. We have actually have a fixed player for certain angklungs but as there sometimes unavoidable issues, we have to make some changes here and there, and this would require more time spent practising.

8:00 a.m.:
People started to arrive. However, for some, to be punctual is something difficult to do.
To make people attend meetings on time is always a problem. There is still a long way to go to have a society who would appreciate and manage their time wisely.


9:30 a.m.:
We decided to have breakfast first and start our practice session right after. We had "roti canai" and sardine-filled curry puffs on the tables 


10:00 a.m.:
Practice finally started. *sigh*










12:30 p.m.:
We had "nasi lemak" for lunch. Then we went for our "Zohor" prayer and had a short rest.


2:00 p.m.:
The practice session continued.

3:45 p.m.:
The van from UTM arrived and we left school. 
Performed our "Asar" prayer at the UTM mosque.



5:00 p.m.:
Trying out the stage and the P.A. system (which was supposed to be there).










The grand event in which we performed would be reported in another post. :)
