8hrs transit at Doha is terrible... its cold and there is nothing to eat there. Manage to catch some sleep there before boarding
Arrive Munich @ 1 30pm
Protest at the Airport
Registration at the EJC Venue (Olympiahalle)
SGD $289 for registration fees + free gala show ticket
$289 gets you to go for all the fantastic workshops, open stage shows, camp site to sleep , Oylmpiahalle to practise or to watch other jugglers practise. Its definitely worth it!!
After registered we start to look for our campsite
Manage to meet Oli from England ( I met him when he was in Singapore last year) so he manage to guide me to camp at the "Contact Juggling.Org" campsite area. It was a pleasure to camp with all the great contact jugglers there.
This is my tent! :)
After setting up my tent we went to walk back to Olympiahalle. (where the jugglers usually practise)
One of a great diabolist I saw when i entered the Hall ( 4 Diabolo low)
After that we walk back to our camp site for a rest and then we went to catch the first open stage at 8 30pm.
This is the Jugendzelt, open stage is in Showzelt
The great jugglers/performers during the open stage
Hiyro performed on the open stage too!!!
After the open stage we were very tired so we went to sleep early. End of Day 2
starting from 10am, great workshop till 3pm. then followed by a fun busking audition at 4pm (met many friendly buskers there) after the audition i spoke to the NAC incharge, we had a long chat on about the busking scene in Singapore and how can we improve it. I hope I've given her some great feedbacks so that she can do something to help us.
After I left the audition place (National Library), I went to clarke quay for dinner. (I goes to clarke quay at least 4 times a week) after dinner i went to my busking location.
Today, the young musician and the dancing uncle was busking on the bridge too! The uncle took the left, the musician on the centre so i took the right. Since the young musician reach 1 min earlier than me, I decided to let him busk for awhile before I start. (we are quite close to 1 another and his speaker is LOUD!!!) I start my first show at 8pm, tough crowd to start my show, maybe too many different music on the bridge. (too noisy, I tried to hint to the musician that i'm starting my show but he nvr lower his speaker volume. Luckily my MACKIE SRM 150 did me proud! Manage to blast a little louder than normal so that people can hear my music.) I manage to get a reasonable crowd and start the show at 8 15pm. Took a 20mins break, then followed by my 2nd show at 9pm. After the 2nd show, I pack up and leave for home...
Today's street performance is fun and enjoyable, I met many nice audience.
Sometimes I wonder do people live to work or work to live? I want to live a meaningful life: by doing things that i enjoy by working towards my dream to become the No. 1 performer in Singapore and hopefully i can inspire others to go for their dreams too.. :)
