Hello Stringers :(

I keep on thinking about 11th May (which is in about 2 days time) and I want to try and I get so sad and emotional over it because.. because... IT'S THE RED BADGES LAST OFFICIAL PERFORMANCE WITH SNSO :(

Sigh, sigh, sigh. Just so you know - yellow, blue & green badges - WE LOVE YOU ALOT. Too much actually. That's why it's so hard for us to leave this CCA we call our 2nd home (cheesy or whatever I don't care but YES that's how much SNSO means to alot of us). Ah this is crazy. Time flies really, really fast when you're having fun!

Oh, oh, hahaha you know on Tuesday, when some of the reds were having that retarded finale rehearsal, all of us were so infuriated because we were missing string! Then the CO people called us String Freaks hahaha. It's like everytime they told us we could return to CCA for the time being, all of us would RUNNNNNN SPRRIINNNT HOPPP JUMP FLYYYYYYYY all the way back from the hall to the MEP room. Super hilarious :D


I think I'll be an emo galzxzZXzXz on Friday.

Go away.

Yours sincerely on a very random night,
Jana Loh

Please listen up, this is very very important.
Mr Jonathan Cher, as some of you have already heard, has contracted Hand-Foot-Mouth disease.
Mr Jonathan Cher, as some of you might have noticed, popped into the MEP room during our practice, remember when Sue Hern was saying her speech.
Now, if you haven't already heard, several stringers are not feeling well and/or showing symptoms of HanD-Foot-Mouth disease.

Stringers, this is very scary okay, I know academic workload and test are piling up since we're coming into the last few weeks of the term, not to mention Jubilate IV in a matter of days. So please do take good care of yourselves and let any of the seniors or Comm members know if you show any signs of HFMD.
Below are signs and symptoms, as well as self-care methods for you guys. There were photos but I couldn't upload them cause blogger is screwed. So here's the link of the photos

Signs and symptoms

The signs and symptoms of hand-foot-and-mouth disease include:

-Sore throat
-Ulcers in the throat, mouth and tongue
-Loss of appetite
-Irritability in infants and toddlers
-A rash with vesicles on hands, feet, and diaper area. The vesicles are typically on the palm side of the hands, the sole side of the feet, and are very characteristic in appearance. The vesicles are also tender or painful if pressed.

The usual period from initial infection to the onset of signs and symptoms (incubation period) is three to seven days. Fever is often the first sign of hand-foot-and-mouth disease, followed by a sore throat and sometimes a poor appetite and the feeling of being sick (malaise). One or two days after fever begins, painful sores may develop in the mouth or throat. Rash on the hands and feet can follow within one or two days, and may also appear on the buttocks. Hand-foot-and-mouth disease may cause all of the above signs and symptoms or just a few of them.


Certain foods and beverages that can cause burning or stinging may irritate blisters on the tongue or in the mouth or throat caused by hand-foot-and-mouth disease. Try these tips to help make blister soreness less bothersome and eating and drinking more tolerable:

-Suck on popsicles or ice chips
-Eat ice cream or sherbet
-Drink cold beverages, such as milk or ice water
-Avoid acidic foods and beverages, such as citrus fruits, fruit drinks and soda
-Avoid salty or spicy foods
-Choose foods that are soft and don't require a lot of chewing
-Rinse your mouth with warm water after meals
-If your child is able to rinse without swallowing, rinsing the inside of his or her mouth with warm salt water may be soothing. Mix 1/2 teaspoon of salt with 1 cup of warm water. Have your child rinse with this solution several times a day, or as often as needed to help reduce the pain and inflammation of mouth and throat sores caused by hand-foot-and-mouth disease.

Please watch yourself for any signs or symptoms of HFMD and check on your fellow stringers as well. Please pray for Mr Cher and those who are not feeling well. Drink lots of water and get more rest, take good care of yourself and let any of the seniors or Comm members know if you too are not feeling well, even if it might jolly well be a simple normal fever or a cold.
Your health right now is the utmost important thing. And I apologize for being naggy and repeating everything over and over again.

Thank you,
take care,
and God bless.

With Love, Clauds
