addicted to my own songs.

i am rediscovering the joys of creation!

been intensively conceptualising the direction of my album,
thinking about how i want each song to be like:
the instrumentation,
the feel,
the vibe,
the story...

i now hear every song in relation to my album template,
and such a focused direction is very... energising :)

i must say,
that i'm still in the very early stages of production,
this may take half a year or so to bear fruit.

wait for it.. wait for it.

events galore

thrilled to be part of the launch of the
Omega - Official Timekeeper for Olympics Exhibition at Paragon :)

chinois getup in honour of Beijing!

the event was graced by the likes of Ivy Lee, Kym Ng, Felicia Chin etc
and right after the chinese drums solo
Dennis and I opened the show with our erhu-violin duet!

We performed the original piece written by Bass Maestro Ken Chung from KL,
a piece entitled "Son of A Chinese".

I love this song!
It will be in Dennis Lau's album :)

my recent trip to KL involved intensive recording sessions for
"Son of A Chinese" :)

Dennis - erhu producer

Joe - sound engineer

Dennis wrote a charity song for Independent Pet Rescuers in Malaysia,
and myself + Joe penned the lyrics for this song called Kindness :)
This song will involve several singers from KL,
and I recorded some parts as well :)

I also met Pete Teo,
a fascinating singer-songwriter from KL who is making it big in Korea! :D
Love his style, do check out his music!

Anyway back to the show!

we had an awesome time, thanks to shirley and jasmine!

alive not dead

spotlight on :)

thanks to the awesome people from HK!

to those not in the know,
it's like MySpace, for asians.

this week particularly, i'm a little half dead actually.

for 3 consecutive days, i had Amei concert rehearsals.
Amei wasn't here, so I had to sing all her lead parts for rehearsals -
including 4 high energy medleys (namely - opening, rock, hip-hop, crazy party ending)
and belted countless ballads.
(actually i just whispered and wheezed through them,
trying not to thrash my voice completely.)

after which i had to rush down to an event -
Magnum icecream launch @ Barfly.
Theme: Sexy Naughty :)
Yummy! I thought it was gonna be balloons and magicians,
but Eva Longoria is the new spokesperson.

she is desperately HOT.
the tagline:
Drooling is permitted. Dripping is not.

after which, rush to Harry's @ Holland V for 3 sets.

The next day, repeat Amei rehearsal,
rush to event -
Milus Timepiece Launch for Visa Infinite cardmembers.
Awesome customised timepieces starting from $80,000. :)

This Milus ladies Merea TriRetro Seconds Skeleton watch features an 18k red gold case, white and gold skeleton dial, and a white alligator strap


Rose-gold, yes please...

I can stare at this watch for hours...

like literally, you know, for the time...

after which, rush to Indochine for another 3 sets...

long awaited weekend break!!!!!!!!!
i haven't stopped singing/recovered,
since my Esplande Lunchbox and Bangkok Jazz showcases...

PS. i used to really like the white Suzuki Swift.
screw that, i've found my new dream car.

Matte Black Nissan GTR.
Parked in front of the hotel, and I couldn't take my eyes off it.

my ZPGY aka 猪朋狗友 ... are my best friends :)


there is too much to be said.
there is such a strong emotional core among us,
it can only grow stronger.

how did we get to know each other?
through music, through a common sense of humour.

this group... it grows, and is still growing.


there is too much to be said,
maybe pictures illustrate better.

we came together again, this time for something larger then ourselves.
we got together in a song - a song of gratitude,
in honour of everyone who have helped the Sichuan earthquake victims,
in one way or another.

it is this synergy of team effort
that catapults us to places we never dreamed we could go, alone.

this song means alot to us,
we share much love among ourselves,
and would love to extend it beyond just ZPGY.
