Splashing Weekend

Last Saturday was indeed an awesome time for me. Together with the kids from Everyone Has Hope project we went to the Jungle Lodge Alang Sedayu near Gombak. The kids were joined with other Burmese children around KL. It was an amazing time hanging out with them.

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 :

Also this was the video shot by me and Reuben, edited by Jin of hitz.fm :

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” :

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.

Incredible India – Jaipur (Part 1)

In continuation from my previous posting, my India trip was amazing. I also went to Jaipur, a city where the architecture is simply amazing.

Well Jaipur (Rajasthani: जैपर Hindi: जयपुर) [ˈdʒəjpʊɾ] ( listen), also popularly known as the Pink City, is the capital and largest city of the Indian state of Rajasthan. Founded on 18 November 1727 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, the ruler of Amber, the city today has a population of more than 3.1 million.

The very structure of Jaipur resembles the taste of the Rajputs and the Royal families. At present, Jaipur is a major business centre with all requisites of a metropolitan city. The city is remarkable among pre-modern Indian cities for the width and regularity of its streets which are laid out into six sectors separated by broad streets 111 ft (34 m) wide. The urban quarters are further divided by networks of gridded streets. Five quarters wrap around the east, south, and west sides of a central palace quarter, with a sixth quarter immediately to the east.

The Palace quarter encloses a sprawling palace complex, (Hawa Mahal), formal gardens, and a small lake. Nahargarh Fort, which was the residence of the King Sawai Jai Singh II, crowns the hill in the northwest corner of the old city. The observatory, Jantar Mantar, is one of the World Heritage Sites.[1] Jaipur is a popular tourist destination in Rajasthan and India.Excerpt from Wikipedia.

Incredible India – New Delhi (Part 1)

Last month I had the chance to finally go to one the country that I always wanted to visit. India, is one the biggest countries in the Asian continent. It is the seventh-largest country by geographical area, the second-most populous country with over 1.2 billion people, and the most populous democracy in the world. Bounded by the Indian Ocean on the south, the Arabian Sea on the south-west, and the Bay of Bengal on the south-east, it shares land borders with Pakistan to the west; the People’s Republic of China, Nepal, and Bhutan to the north-east; and Burma and Bangladesh to the east. In the Indian Ocean, India is in the vicinity of Sri Lanka and the Maldives; in addition, India’s Andaman and Nicobar Islands share a maritime border with Thailand and Indonesia.

India is one place where cultures, language, customs and color are plentiful. My journey was to the northern part of India. I visited three places which was Delhi, Jaipur and Agra. This is the shots I took when I was in Delhi :
