2230 hrs, somewhere beside Kent Ridge Bus Interchange.
The guys order and the girls take photos!
Butter, Cheese, Garlic Naan
Highly fattening, but also very good!

To hear better...
1st experiment sitting with backs to each other.
So that we all can hear the metronome in this odd seating arrangement, it was clipped to the violist's vest.
Guess whose cool shoes these are?!

On top of a hill, with its winding roads, sprawling houses, the occasional overgrown field, but nonetheless wearing an intimidatingly cool vibe a.k.a. Dempsey, sat an art gallery. Cool concrete floors, cool white-black alternating walls, very resonant space.
"A Solo exhibition by Russian sensation Anna Berezovskaya"
Exhibition runs until 19th June 2011.
Since our blog post is rather current for once, catch it while you can!
(Not a paid advertisement.)
The gathering of the well-heeled.
Snapshots of the humans taking a break from sitting...
(Guess who's back from cold Colorado?)
...while the instruments sprawl conveniently on the couch nearby.
Christoven the Violist's latest bling find from Stevie General Store at Club Street,
(Not a paid advertisement either.)
nonchalantly modeled by DT the violinist.
And now for our post-gig food feature!
(Still not a paid advertisment.)
Mango Slush Ice with Rum and Raisin ice cream
Rosti a.k.a. French fry noodles as described by the violist.
On skewers: Mushroom(s) and Prawn(s) snuggled in bacon blanket.
And when all the food's finally gone...

*Long overdue post, backdated to conceal the embarrassing lateness of it. (what's new?) Photos courtesy of Michelle who kindly programmed us amidst the March madness.
Little black rectangle of a photo in a poster within a poster = very meta.
The Violist wonders what the Cellist finds funny during the 2nd Violin's introduction.
Finally getting down to the playing,
with the serious teacher face,
"I am viola hear me roar"
wandering eyes wondering
All smiles after the serious second movement of Shostakovich F Major Quartet.
The big picture, behind the audience's back.

First performance with Odyssey Dance Theatre at Drama Center!
The cavernous dressing room
The requisite dressing room label
Also, a room with a view
of some of our audience leaving in a rather orderly fashion.
Oxy checking out Christoven's new spectacles! (one of many...)
Speaking of gold boots, check out the matching golden fan accessory around his neck.
Kent from the Hair Times
doing Jit's hair
Kent's other work...
Really nailed the glam bride look!
L to R: Jit, Liz, Oxy, Kit Yeng (arranger/pianist) and Christoven
Our eyes are all looking at different places because there were too many cameras.
Ok maybe just two.
Jit with the 2 Korean dancers and LayTeng
much to the envy of the schoolgirls standing around
Final group shot!
Telok Ayer Performing Arts Center
Our new rehearsal space. Enjoying it while it lasts - apparently it's going to be gone in a few years!
Latest addition (or edition) - Golden boots of Christoven the violist
parked on the tiramisu-esque carpet of a St Regis function room
Latest addition: the White Case of Jitmin
in the concave space of a St Regis restaurant. Our first wedding performance as a 'new' quartet!
