QBE Insurance Awards Night@ Damai Beach Resort, Sarawak

Visit Sarawak 2008. Truly Malaysia~
=)
Dear all, this is gonna be a short post as im currently preparing for tmr's show in Bangkok Jazz and setting up my new studio at home..=) woohoo!
Would be showing ya some pics of my home studio once its done setting up and all tuned up!
Anyway last week, I was invited to perform in Sarawak last week, to be specific, Kuching....probably 45 mins off the city in this beach resort called Damai Beach Resort.=)
To be honest, i have absolutely no idea whats this show about and what is it for. All i know is im required to perform 3 of my original compositions in it.
Brian, my buddy who is a conductor/ music director and fellow violinist extraordinaire was the one who got me this show...
To elaborate more, its actually an award presentation ceremony for QBE Insurance, an Australlian based company. Most of the audiences invited were elderly gentlemen, along with some ladies as well of cos and the night was themed "SHANGHAI NIGHT!" Our entourage frm Kuala Lumpur consist of Local Shanghai/ Jazz songstress Janet Lee, Brian Tan & the Vivas and of cos me myself.
I had the opportunity to watch Brian performed at his best and it was in fact my first time watching him play live..I must say, it was mind blowing!!

Werner's Official Launch Party@ Changkat Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur

Yoo Peeps!

Alright, i got to say last night in Werner's was a Blastt!!
Crowd was good, drinks were good, food was good, Music was top notch!!what else? cigars?haha
Anyway, i should give a my deepest gratitude to both Syed & Andreas for inviting me over to perform my originals. It was nevertheless a great time to see the public to appreciate what i love doing: Music!
Anyway, aside from me performing my songs, Werner's got DJ Mike frm the UK & Steve Jarrett frm the land down under to bring up the music to another level. As a musician myself, im starting to crave for the live rave/ electronic music which has previously not really my thang. But yest, maybe after some highness in jamming with both mike & Steve, it really did changed my perception towards it. As one say, one have to experience it to Feel it! which i think is very truee.....=)

Thank you all to the crowd and ppl who attended this very special Launch and make it all possible with your laughters, antics & introductions!=)

Andreas of Werner's hospitality in taking care of his guests is beyond words and undoubtedly one of the best host i came across. The next time, im gonna throw a party, probably on the 9th of September, Werner's the place!*winks*
