I've been neglecting this blog again, haven't I? Sorry about that...
Anyway, it's the
Tuesday was my second day of being back at work. I took a two month break before and now I've decided (with much convincing from my sister) that I work two days a week. It's not too bad, except that today was a holiday and there were a lot of customers. Made. so. much. juice. cut. so. many. oranges... It is fun and both really nerve-wrecking at the same time because you are excited, but then also trying not to mess anything up. It is definitely more fun working with other people rather than just by yourself though.
After work, I went to an appreciation dinner organised by Winnie Ho and her group to sort of get to know all the other open mic-ers from the previous rounds. Her open mic is a chinese open mic, 脱口唱 and it is very different from other open mics I have attended. Her and her team are really passionate about music and you can just feel their enthusiasm when you walk into the room. They're so nice and supportive too. They organised this meet-up with us performers so that we could share our ideas and network and get to know each other. It was amazing being amongst these really established artists and hearing their stories and also meeting people like me who are just starting out.
I've also got exciting news. Treehouse Open Mic is back! I took a really long break from organising it the past couple of months. It will be at Zest Cafe this time, and you can now sign up online here.
This month's open mic will be featuring Juno & Hanna. I met them last month at the Shout Awards' Cafe Session in Subang. I thought they were really amazing and asked if I could feature them and they said yes!
The other day, I performed at Christian Palencia's (https://www.facebook.com/ChristianBPalencia) Alter:Native KL. He invites a couple of people to come perform and it's a little like an open mic and a mini recital at the same time. I got to be one of the headliners that night (which was AWESOME) and also meet so many people my age doing the same thing I do. I hardly ever get to perform for a room full of people who are actually intently listening me sing and I'm so grateful to him for putting something like this together. And after that night, my facebook page went from like 740 likes to nearly 800 in less than a day. I didn't even know where all those people came from, and if you're one of them, I am very grateful.
I've been performing quite a bit lately, and writing a little here and there. Getting ready to get back in the studio really soon! I'm really excited for this next project ;)
