I’ve had my happiest day at INSEAD so far. Saturday morning began with a church rehearsal followed by lunch with WY and a visit to Picard. Pretty normal so far. The weather wasn’t that nice, but at least the people were.
Then I discovered some new stores at Avon which had pretty good deals and noted down the prices. I went home, bumped into my landlord and learnt that he has boosted the wireless internet signal strength. So far it’s holding up well!
With my newly-empowered surfing abilities, I went on Facebook and was invited by my Algerian-French classmate AB to join her for drinks. I told her I’d meet her after dinner.
I went for dinner at the home of two INSEAD professors (the same couple I mentioned earlier) and got to meet more P3s who are going for the Brazil trip. I was invited again to play the piano and this time was accompanied by French classmate BC who also played the piano. He sang with such passion that we are now forming a Cabaret team! My housemate had arrived by that time and we also got her to sing, heheh.
After dinner I headed to another part of Fonty and found AB and her housemate PR there. We headed over to their place where I discovered that AB and PR are fellow jazz lovers. I told PR about my jazz piano lessons and listened to lots of artistes, particularly French jazz which is what I was looking for in France. Then I played some of my own compositions and they liked it a lot. They asked me what I was doing, getting an MBA! PR has requested I play the piano at the INSEAD bar.
After that episode of self-rediscovery, I went home. Then I got a call to fetch my housemate home so I drove out again. All in rainy, cold weather. I am overall happy and strangely not tired. The only downside is that I will not get much sleep before church rehearsal in the morning followed by the actual performance. I know it’s not going to be perfect but I certainly hope the worship will be smooth and that I will play a constructive part in it.
Now, to sleep!
