Watching the Sound of Music for the first time since 2008 does brings back a lot of memories. Why? Because, when I was Standard 5 (2008), I represented my school in a Volleyball competition (Sukan SRAI). So we have to, like, stay at a hostel for 3 days for the event. We stayed at the Sekolah Agama Menengah Tinggi Sultan Hisamuddin’s hostel.
That’s not the point lol, anyway, right before we went there, my mom introduced the Sound of Music to me. I was listening to the songs frequently and repeatedly because I just love the simple tune of the songs. So when I go to the Sukan SRAI event, the songs from the movie (especially “My Favourite Things and “Sixteen Going On Seventeen”) are stuck in my head.
Those songs kept running through my head the whole time, event when I was playing! (I guess that’s why we didn’t win, lol) I didn’t even bring an mp3 to listen to the songs. So when I came back home from the event, when I play the songs, the memories of the Sukan SRAI drift through my head. I can remember them perfectly (not really, hehe) when I listen to the songs. That’s one of the few reasons why I love music, it’s powerful.
I tried that trick once for a trip. I listen to this particular song regularly when traveling to this place. But it didn’t work. When I hear that song (I can’t remember what song, haha), nothing came. No memories of the place at all. Because music works in mysterious ways (like God, lol). It has to came naturally, like those Sound of Music songs.
So when I watched the movie again a few days ago, when I listen to the songs (“My Favourite Things”, particularly), I almost cried (yeah, I’m an emotional wreck xD). There were memories of the Volleyball game drifting through my head, forcing tears to fall from my eyes. Oh how much I miss my Volleyball! 😥
Oh god, emotional much? xD Well, I just love volleyball and I hate SAMTTAJ for not having ’em. I just hope that this new school have this sport.
Okay, that’s all from me. No pics, sorryyyyyyyyyy. 😛 Though, I have a song for you guys 😉 Here! The song that I was referring to:
Here’s another song from the movie that I love so much. This song does not bring any memories of the event though. :
P/S: The Champions League QF Draw was so unexpected, Spurs got Real Madrid! OH GOD! ;_; But still, to get this far in the competition is enough to make me happy. 😀
