 ♥ is Sweet!
It's the wedding theme of KC & Jazzmine!


My KLPac friends: HTian, Abert, KFong and I were invited to play for our friend, Jazzmine during her wedding.
We actually met up and discussed quite early, somewhere in May I guess about the performance.
It's my first wedding gig honestly though have had experience in competition and other kinds of performance.
Well, we played some medley and a full version of some selected songs by Jazzmine:
Close to You
Top of The World
Fly Me To The Moon
Moon River
Rhythm of The Rain
Can You Feel The Love Tonight
Over The Rainbow

Almost all of the songs were arranged by Albert!
Guess what, he has a cool music workstation..!
This is just part of it.. There were actually 2 full range keyboards, 4 monitors and 1 recording mic!

Besides music performance by us, there was a violinist, the bridegroom's violin teacher who played for the opening!
His name was Jon and guess what, he's my friend's bandmate!
The world is small, I'd say..
Especially in music field!

 The violinist, Jon

It was their first time being the emcee for wedding dinner but trust me, the way the host was very funny & entertaining! haha

All in all, thank you Jazzmine for the invitation and giving me the chance to play with strong saxophonists HTian, KFong & bassist Albert!

May you both live happily ever after ;)

Happy 21st!

It was an assignment-packed period and no, I did not throw a party or whatsoever like most of the people that celebrate their 21st birthday.
Another reason is, I think it's a day where we have to appreciate our parents especially mother for giving birth and nurturing us to what we are today.
Hence, there's no tradition in my family where we must throw a birthday party.
Yet, I was grateful to have a pre-birthday celebration by my food partner: JKie for a dinner buffet at Suki-ya, Pavillion KL.

Thank you JKie! ^^

On my birthday, my classmates and sisters had a surprise for me during the interval of our class.
I was so touched because it was really a busy week for us meeting the assignments' deadlines & presentation...
Thank you SEn & Bethany!  ♥ 

Thank you Natasha, Vita, Ju-Lian, Wei Wei, Jerrico, Fiona, Arnold, Ali, Devindran & Aizat! ^^

Also, a self-decorated cake by my cousie: Nigel!
Took me 3 days to finish it.. haha
Thank you dear

And and, special thanks to EYi for coming all the way and send me the birthday present to my doorstep..!
Aiks... Can't get to see you after so long
even though you came due to my absence at home that time...

Oh yes, thanks a lot to my orchestra mates for have a post-celebration after the orchestra practice!
The multi-language and repeated birthday song led by XSheng was indeed, amusing... xD
Thank you Jac, YSing, XSheng, LYun, Jamin, Roy, Vincent N! :)

Last but not least, thanks mum for the lovely present

♥ you loads~

Anyway, thank you again to all of my lovely friends (yes, including those who wished me be it on phone or the 300+ FB wishes)!!
Appreciate it lots~

White Vengeance/ Hong Men Yan is a Chinese historic film directed by Daniel Lee, starring Liu YiFei, Feng ShaoFeng, Leon Lai, Zhang HanYu, Jordan Chan, Anthony Wong etc.

It's a decent movie albeit the aberrations that can't escape from the keen eyes of audience or history fanatics.
Undeniably with the interesting plot & actors + actresses that don't disappoint, I like this movie!
It's my 1st movie after my last movie that I had in July, yeah, few months ago.
In fact, I've watched this twice!
Both cantonese & mandarin version. Haha...
It's a 2 hours 17 minutes movie.
Well, you might get a bit bored at the beginning but trust me it's getting more exciting & thought-provoking as the story goes on.
The malay audience sitting at the front row even clapped when the movie ends!
I watched it at the first time with my friends and we find it amusing when Yu Ji & Xiang Yu get together at such short moment.
Yeah, on the same day they just got to know each other and the next thing is, they promised to be with each other forever.
Our first reaction at the cinema was "what? so fast?!"

The loyalty between Liu Bang & Fan Kuai as well as the love between Xiang Yu & Yu Ji was very touching.
Jordan Chan did a good job on interpreting the Fan Kuai character I must say.
And, the way Zhang Liang aided Liu Bang in circumventing Xiang Yu was interesting.

However, the ending was rather saddening, quite similar with the ending of Curse of The Golden Flower.
Honestly, though it's a historic film, I'd prefer if there's a happy ending.
I dislike story with sad ending :(

Anyway, Liu YiFei is still so pretty without much make-up :D

Yamcha ♥

It's 3 months + of semester break after my finals!
I was watching Storm Warriors 2 (yeah, I know I'm out-dated but this is the latest version of Storm Raider atm!).

I've missed a lot of movies these days T_T
You can call me couch potato.. >.<''

It was such a luxury, laying on the sofa or chair and watch movies & dramas for me!
Guess what, I used to be a drama fanatic til I was so fully-occupied with all kinds of stuff and I had to refrain myself for keeping in touch with the screens~

And, received an unexpected call from my sis & bro to ask me out and yamcha..
Haha.. In fact, I just came back from there and now blogging...
It was such an excited one I must admit..

4 - 1 so there was only 3 of us...
Nope, this wasn't taken just now :P

We miss our leader cum bro, OMH!!!
p/s: this was taken during our Cameron Highlands 2010 trip by my lousy hp cam ♥

Can't wait for our next outing...!
Till then...
