i've been going to Shanghai mainly for tours,
and the funny thing about touring is you develop a routine of going to rehearsals, soundchecks, and dropping by the same restaurants
that you lose your tourist instinct or drive to do anything different.
this time round with 3 Shanghai newbies I happily took the lead to bring them around!
the usual suspects, you should be familiar with :)
my buddy Einein (keyboard) and Wah Yong (bass), from KEEP! days :)
this is Dean, my manager, revealed!
He has to constantly endure my insecurities and is always asking me to relax and not to worry...
he is Mr Nice Guy #1.
when you see him on the streets please help me thank him :)
admittedly it was the 1st time I visited the Bund at night!
it was tourist rush all over again and we were soaking in the perfect chilly weather and drinking in the sights...
old-school grandeur on one shore, and shimmering skyscrapers across the waters...
too many good things on this trip -
we had a spread of a dinner by my old friend Kevin
as modelled by Wah Yong
and some spectacular seafood extravaganza soup with Hairy Crab!!!
many thanks to Kevin who also brought about .....
Myself and Ein Ein sporting brand new leather boots from 达芙妮Daphne!
We were sponsored a pair each, so we could pick any pair from the shop! ^_^
ended picking the same pair in different colours! haha!
thanks to 达芙妮Daphne and Kevin!
we also had to check the tourist spot of 城隍庙
and queue for the authentic 南翔小笼包
okay back to work back to work...
the real reason for this Shanghai trip was that it was my first 海外商演﹗
it was for Singapore Tourism Board
very happy to be singing for this event :)
thanks to everyone who made this possible!!
