Scars and Scrapes Forever!

Married Life from UP
When I first put together my recital in early March 2013, one of the pieces that I really wanna play is Married Life from the movie UP.

Thank you Lorraine for helping out with the violin part and Christine for the piano part! :)

HK Flute Quartet Interview
We were interviewed by iCable Financial Info Channel because we performed at APM during the x'mas season. We were asked about how we did financially in 2007 in comparison to 2006. Just to clarify something here... I only said in the interview that "the money I made in 2007 should be enough to invest on a $100,000HKD flute"... but I never said I'm going to buy one yet!
Highlight from Burton Sonatina
This is my first performance after I relocated back to Hong Kong in 2007. Irene Chan was my pianist. I noticed that I was quite out of tune because of my old Pearl flute. This took place at the Parsons Music Annual Gala.
