The Asian Teachers Christian Conference

This morning I received by email an invitation for my presence for dinner at the Asian Teachers Christian Conference. It was sent by a former colleague of mine Ms Lam L O.
The venue was the Girls Brigade Hq at Upper Serangoon Road. In 2006, I was similarly invited and because the Singapore delegates specially requested for my Ukulele accompaniment for their performing segments, I roped in fellow ukelelist Richard, a close friend of mine.

We were there today, in the evening. And the 2 of us, with much time on our hand, jammed together many of the oldies and tried out some newer

songs too. It was something that was easy and relaxing to do.

When the participants of the ATC came down to the mess hall for their early supper, Richard and I went from table to table to serenade them.

Besides Singapore, the other participants were from Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Myanmar,Cambodia etc..

At this table was the Director-General of Education, Ms Seah Jiak Choo and Dr Low Guat Tin from the NIE. We sang for them the very lovely, " Cindy oh Cindy"and "Just a closer walk with Thee".

Our DGE, listening and enjoying the beautiful sounds of our combined ukuleles to the music and songs of the '60's.
