Kina Grannis : Live in Kuala Lumpur

These past few months, KL has been privileged to have many talented people especially, YouTube sensations. Last year KL saw the appearance of AJ Rafael, Clara C and the Jayeselee twins.

Early this month, I was so happy to meet another person, she is one the earliest singer songwriters that I have been following on YouTube. It is non other, the amazing and talented Kina Grannis. According to Wiki :

“Kina Kasuya Grannis (born August 4, 1985) is a guitarist and singer-songwriter from California. She is half Japanese and half English, Irish, French, Scottish, Dutch and German. In 2006, Grannis recorded and self-released two more albums, One More in the Attic and In Memory of the Singing Bridge. In early 2007, she recorded “Ours to Keep” written by Rachael Lawrence and Deborah Ellen. This song would be featured regularly on General Hospital and was in an episode of the ABC Family’s mini-series Samurai Girl in September 2008.

On November 14, 2007, she created her YouTube account and began posting videos of her songs online. Her first video, “Message From Your Heart,” was entered into Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest. The contest, which she won, landed her a contract with Interscope Records. Her YouTube videos have received more than 77 million views and have propelled her to become one of YouTube’s most popular personalities “

Some of her well known hits are “Valentine”, “In Your Arms”, “The Way You Are” and many amazing covers by artists. She was even featured on the Ellen show for her video that featured Jelly Beans.

Anyway here are some of the shots I took of her when she was performing live at Wisma Bentley auditorium.

Guangzhou, China

Early this month I had the chance to visit China, not one of the main cities but Guangzhou which is the capital of Guangdong. it is also known historically as Canton or Kwangchow,is the capital and largest city of the GuangDong province. Located in southern China on the Pearl River, about 120 km (75 mi) north-northwest of Hong Kong, Guangzhou is a key national transportation hub and trading port. Guangzhou is the third largest city in China and southern China’s largest city. As of the 2010 census, the city had a population of 12.78 million.

The reason for me being here is due to my office advertising department had their team building seminar here. Since its a foreign land, I always never fail to explore the city and take pictures. Guangzhou is also bustling city that is constantly growing. The Pearl River is one main gateways for import and export trading happens between China and the world. One of the sights we visited was the Four Ram statue, shopping/ pedestrian street which are shopping havens. Anyway here are some shots I took there :
