Since coming back from Australia!

Wow! has it been a week and a half since I came back?

For those of you who didn’t know… I’m HOME! On a holiday of course! Till first week of Feb!

First few things I noticed and almost forgot what Malaysia was all about was:

1. ITS HOT and HUMID!!!

2. TRAFFIC JAMS! ( i’ve grown accustomed to the Aussie roads and there is hardly much traffic in Canberra!) Traffic jams there are like 5 mins.. LOL

3. Toilet seats are relatively lower than Aussie ones!

4. Food is great! (Not awesome, but Good!) Grandma’s curry was EPIC tho!!!

Personally, what I miss most was:

1. My family! (John’s in Kansas btw)

2. Queen size bed!

3. My Serena! (it’s what I named my guitar. After Serena in Gossip Girl) 😀

4. My close friends

5. My Band and gigs!!!

Gosh! It was a tiring few days back! Been so busy!

Firstly, was to shoot the music video for ‘Snake With Limbs’ (click here for behind the scenes!)

Secondly, I’ve had 3 shows in a week! 2 proms at Sri KL and Taman Sea! Taman Sea prom was super awesome! Everyone was having so much fun! We met a really cute band too! Let Go Tomorrow are still young and I can’t wait to see what will birth from them in a few years time! (Click here for a picture of us and Let Go Tomorrow!)

Followed in the same week was Rock The World 10! It is a significant one for me cause last year’s one, I was Darren’s guitar tech! This year, I am performing with my band mates and for the year that I’ve been with An Honest Mistake, I salute to my band members that it was an awesome year and it’s been a privilege playing along side talented individuals that makes up what An Honest Mistake is today! Hope to make more records with you guys next year! We got big plans yo!

Lastly, I’ve been busy recuperating at home and working part time, which helps my portfolio! So you can say I’m on a ‘Working Holiday’! I’ll be working closely with Kevin ‘Cottie’ Tan on An Honest Mistake’s media kit and profile! Harnessing my skills that I’ve as an Advertising and Marketing Communication student!

Well… that’s all for now! We got a gig that the band has organized! Check out the poster below!

Since I last blogged in Nov…

Hey all!

Since I last blogged in Nov! I’ve been pretty busy.. I guess I’ve always said the same thing.. Busy… busy… busy…

Well firstly I was pleasantly surprised that I did pretty well for my results for my first semester… Honestly I thought I would have done pretty badly. Thank God I did my part. Only one subject I was really disappointed with but all in a a decent semester.

After the last of my assignments, I started packing stuff from my room! It was a treacherous one as I had heaps of stuff all over! Thank God I had enough boxes! Ultimately I would like to thank all my friends who helped with transporting and accommodating my stuff! Seriously you guys are awesome! Thanks to Doris and Leo too! For having me over to stay for the night at their new place! Which is so nice and cosy! Can’t wait for the house warming!

Flew to Melbourne for a week to catch No Sleep Til, which is probably the biggest festival I’ve been too! Heaps of awesome bands! I’ve a No Sleep Til album right here, for yo guys to check it out! The after party was epic too! Cause I got to meet some of the awesome bands! Wish A Day To Remember was there tho! None the less, meeting the members of Suicide Silence, We Came As Romans and August Burns Red was all ready Epic!!!

Was talking to Scott who flew from Malaysia just for the fest, and we agreed that what would have made NST complete was if Underoath and Amity Afflictions were a part of it! Would have been a show of a lifetime!

All in all.. my 4 months in Australia has been a life learning lesson in so many ways! I am glad that I get a chance to experience this and I thank my parents so much for it!

Love you mum and dad!!
