So today was the day.

A pretty awesome day, in fact.

When I came to school, Wanfong approached me and handed me something. Another copy of that Linkin Park poster I spoilt. And she also wished me good luck for Talent Search. I can only say one thing...


Sure, it's just a poster, but the act of giving something that's yours away unconditionally (or is it...) is just plain awesome.

If you're reading this, Wanfong, thanks. A lot. It means a lot to me. then it was Talent Search. Before going out, I was as nervous as hell. Heart rate going up to 13794087513241532BPS (beats per second) and giant butterflies flapping their titanium wings of...titanium in my stomach.

But when I got up there, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

I just did what I loved doing. Beatbox. So...yeah. But I didn't have much stage presence. Was just beatboxing and moving weirdly.

It's a cool feeling when you beatbox or say something and the crowd applauses or laughs or "WHOO"s at it.

"Thanks, Simon. Cowell."

But wearing a thick red jacket on a hot, fanless stage tends to drench you in sweat. Not to mention the nervousness.

I'll try post a video of the performance.

So, then after me there was Mutt, Faridzuan (spelling?), Beautiful Frequency, Rifat and Owen and then Nazurah.

Mutt played Silence Is A Scary Sound by McFly.
I'm not too sure what song Faridzuan sang.
Beautiful Frequency played Bon Jovi's Have A Nice Day.
Rifat and Owen played some awesome percussion stuff.
Nazurah danced.

I, on the other hand, was freestyling. Yes, free-freakin-styling. So obviously there were some minor slips here and there.

So, the results were announced, with the three Consolation Prize winners being Mutt, Beautiful Frequency and Faridzuan. Third was Nazurah, Second was You, and First was the dual-percussionists, Owen and Rifat.

Second place, not bad. Oh by the way, You was my stage name.

People kept saying that I should've been first, but oh well. Maybe some of the judges didn't believe me when I said that all the sounds were a hundred percent vocals.

And oh, I got into OBS for the December Holidays.

Your favourite beatboxing ambigrammist,

LOL. I like the bit where you proclaimed love to mighty me.

Ahahaha. Joke.

But I didn't need the poster, it was rotting on my table, so might as well give it to someone who wants it so badly. Great performance!
