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!!

Holidays so far & preparing for migration…

Hey guys!

It’s again been a long while since I’ve blogged in this space! Don’t worry guys! This blog will not fade away! It holds lots of memories and important dates just like a personal Autobiography that keeps on writing until the “ink” runs out.

Well I’ve been on holidays since my exams and presentations ended on the 25th of May. I’ve to refer to my diary to keep track of my dates! hahaha… Even’t I don’t remember! Since holidays started, I’ve been busy with gigs and also recordings with my band An Honest Mistake, and the occasional session with A Ruthless Cleansing & Diandra.

Yesterday’s gig was super fun! An Honest Mistake was the featured act brought to you by Monsoon Records Vol.4. It was definitely a great set, comments were, the band was tight, great sound (thanks to the awesome sound man at Laundry) and everyone, including ourselves enjoyed the show!

Awesome photos by Brendan Lee! You can visit more of his photos for the night here, and do visit his webpage as well here!

Other than music, I’ve been busy preparing myself to get ready to head to Canberra to further my studies, will be waiting for my results to be out hopefully by next week! If all is good and no hiccups then I will be flying on the 1st of August and arriving on the 2nd of August.. on my 21st Birthday… what a way to celebrate it on foreign soil… alone… SAD!

My friends and family were saying that they wanted to celebrate it earlier haha… My wish is actually to have a concert for my birthday…. Guess it will be next time then when I come back! Not to fret though, cause I’m only there for a year, so I’ll be back in the beginning of July 2011!

fly away to a new place.. like birds migrating to a new home...
