I've been in a very happy mood lately. I don't know, I feel happy and comfortable being myself and I'm looking at life from the 'glass is half full' perspective. I realises that these moments are to be appreciated because I don't know when it will go away. With saying that, I spent almost the whole week trying to make myself sad. To the point of tears-streaming-down-my-face kind of induced sadness for a new song I'm almost done recording. I wanted to mean every word, and to do that I had to be mentally in that kind of place I'd normally try to escape. I'm still trying and learning to portray that emotion in my singing because I'm not very expressive. Except when I write. We just finished the vocals today at the studio and I am very happy with the way it is coming together. I can't wait for you to hear it. I know I keep saying that and yet nothing is released, and I'm so sorry about that. I'm hoping to release something before my 18th birthday. Fingers crossed that all goes as planned!
I'm going to perform at the Penang Island Jazz Festival next week (December 6th-8th) and I'm so excited (I really should use more words other than "exited") because I have never performed outside of Kuala Lumpur before. I mean I have sang in Nashville and California, but within Malaysia I've only performed in KL so this will be my first gig in another state. Also, I'm performing before Liyana Fizi at the Sunrise Stage. Asdfghjkl!!! Check out the festival schedule here if you will be in town then :) http://www.penangjazz.com/wp
November has been CRAZY and so much fun. I never thought I'd say this, but I'm looking forward to doing nothing.
