WISHES DO HAPPEN : Meeting Jayesslee and Clara C in Kuala Lumpur

I have always been a big fan of musicians. Be it local or international, I look forward to meeting good and talented musicians. One of my first concert was when I traveled to Singapore by myself, just to watch a Norah Jones concert. Since then I have been to Singapore, Philippines and Indonesia to watch concerts. Jakarta especially as I always go for the Java Jazz shows.

Besides concerts, the YouTube artists are the ones I am so crazy nowadays. For the past four years or so, I have been watching various people on YouTube making amazing music (not forgetting cute pandas sneezing, two small girls singing Nikki Minaj, etc) has been part of my YouTube watching regiment. There are a few amazing artists that I would not miss, people like AJ Rafeal, David Choi, Dallas Green, WongFu Productions, Kina Grannis, and my FAVORITES are people such as Jayesslee, Clara C, Cathy Nguyen and also the amazing Andy Garcia.

Well thanks to our a good friend from a local radio station, I had the amazing privilege of meeting two of my favorite acts. Namely Jayesslee and Clara C. I am gonna feature some pictures and videos that were done when they were in town during their concert and also at the studios performing. Firstly Jayesslee, the twins are from Australia, they rose to fame after singing on YouTube. The song that made well known was “Officially Missing You by Tamia”. You can find them HERE

These is a short excerpt of their biodata from a FAN PAGE :

Hi! We’re Janice and Sonia, yes we really are twins. Same hair, same face, we’re similar in many ways yet once you get to know us, you’ll find that we’re different at the same time 🙂 We are 24 years old, born and raised in Sydney Australia. Both our parents are Korean, so we are able to read, write and speak the language. We have always shared a passion for singing and now, we are both pretty set on pursuing music. Just want to say a ma-HASSIVE thank you to all our subscribers and supporters. We don’t sing to be rated, but every comment, message, rating and subscriber has made this journey for us all the more rewarding!

This is their first video they posted :

This are pictures I took of their performances in the studio and during their live concert :

Well, that was for the twins, and yesterday was another wish came true for me as Clara C was in town as well. I was so happy to meet her, not only she is talented but this girl is super down to earth. Here is something about Clara taken from her website:

Having been a closet musician most of her life, Clara has only recently revealed her talent to the world. In a short period of time, she has won prestigious competitions such as Kollaboration 10, ISA 09: Los Angeles and the KAC Media Creative Juice Night.
Clara has just begun to capture the hearts and minds of the music community worldwide. Her quirky charm, creative ideas, unlimited instrumental and vocal talent has allowed people to see Clara as the next big singer/songwriter. Clara’s music can best be described as a synergy of folk/pop/rock sound that when blended together creates a unique experience.

She has performed at renowned venues such as The White House Dept. of Education, Hollywood Bowl, Shrine Auditorium and more where she performed for crowds of up to 18,000 people. Clara’s debut album was released on September 24th, 2010 to a sold out crowd at the Hotel Cafe venue. Look for Clara as she tours throughout the year promoting her debut album, The Art in My Heart.

Well here some the shots and also a video done by the same crew. She sang one of her new singles called, “FISH” :

Here is the video :

Well one thing I have learnt from meeting this artist is, they are so down to earth, that really makes me want to keep on doing what I love doing and be passionate about it. They are so well known and yet you can talk to them like they are your friends. I think a rise in the YouTube artist is very eminent in these coming years. So look out for that upcoming artist that you knew from your high school, or even your neighbour.

Football : Malaysia vs Singapore, World Cup 2014 Qualifying Match

It was that time of the year where Malaysian football is at its peak. A few weeks ago, Malaysia played against Singapore for the World Cup 2014 Qualifying match in the National Stadium, Bukit Jalil. Malaysia needed to win this match in order to move on to the next round, loosing in Singapore Kalang Stadium did not help them with the aggregates as well. Despite the atmosphere and energy or the Malaysian supporters was amazing, the Malaysian team lost their hopes of making it to the next round. Anyway here are some shots from the stadium :
