“I was overwhelmed by the high quality production which involved so many aesthetic CCA groups … I was delighted with the way each story synchronizes with each other, and how the music, the drums, the most beautiful dance movements, the use of IT to bring out the dramatic effects of the stories, the translation, the lighting, the stage props, costumes, the Wu Shu and every movement, the dramatization of the artistes, simply blend so well and so beautifully into an impactful finale.”

“Lake Odyssey is indeed a superb and fantastic performance. It was 75 minutes of pure entertainment, display of talents and most of all, commitment displayed by all those who were involved in one way or other. Three cheers for all the teachers and pupils who had worked very hard those gruelling weeks, months to make the production a very memorable one.”
