Behind the faces
The Here-Everyday Crowd
PY enjoys being in a peaceful and spacious environment. Her favourite colour is blue. She graduated from National University of Singapore with a Bachelor of Social Sciences, Honours in Social Work.
During her free time, she contributes heritage-related posts to Yesterday.sg, a blog about heritage and museums in Singapore. If you would like to read her writings, look for posts contributed under the nickname: oceanskies79.
In year 2006, she passed the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music's Grade 8 Double Bass Practical Exams with a distinction. In the year 2009, she passed DipABRSM music performance, double bass.
A composer by training, Emily is also an avid double bassist. Music in her heart, mind and soul always, her freakish Jekyll and Hyde personality forces her to divide her time between the two leaving just mere moments for all else. On these rare occasions, she enjoys visiting museums, reading books and catching a movie or two at the cinemas. To maintain her sanity, she often embarks on gourmet tours to exquisite locations, often not returning until financially exhausted.

Semi-retiring bassist whom still adores her bass No.8. She enjoys the alluring and ground-setting tone of the bass in amidst of the orchestra. The double bass has been a passion for her for the past 15 years. She currently plays with the National University of Singapore (NUS) Symphony Orchestra. She has graduated from NUS and became an engineer since.
An engineer-in-the-making, a volunteer, the President of the NUS Symphony Orchestra (Year 2007/8) and the Mr-Nice-Guy around, XM certainly loves and takes good care of his double bass, which he affectionately named Grace. Working together as the fantastic duo, XM and Grace complement each other perfectly to producing heart-melting timbres and mind-whirling melodies.
He has passed the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music's Grade 5 Double Bass Practical Exams.
