Dear friends

I know it has been a long time since you heard from me. Just to let you know that I am doing fine. And that there are really huge things going on in my life. Too many things to elaborate. But I will say this...

If you happen to have a myspace account, please show your support by adding these:

http://www.myspace.com/sirensfemcollab/

These are my two current undertakings. There will be more.

I hope to see some of you there...

From someone who time toyed with,

From my last performance at Speakeasy. I was trying to choke a flea, but he slammed a rock on my feet. The microphone? Somebody tricked me into believing that it's a lightsabre.

So one day became one month :p.

Lot's of things has since happened.

THOA:

I had another performance recently on the third of June. The good thing was that I managed to clear some misunderstandng about Lutfi's involvement in THOA. The bad thing was that I was suffering from sore throat and still recovering from a flu when I was performing. :S That turned out to be one of my not so good performance. And I missed the chance of dedicating Dismal Son to my dad.

But I have since recovered completely. Within a space of 1 1/2 - 2 weeks :D. I am now a firm believer of mental healing, cos medication alone is not enough if you keep dwelling on how bad your illness is instead of concentrating on getting better. *cough*

On the bright side I managed to complete another new song called serpent. This is quite possibly the most experimental track I have done yet to date. Combination of spoken words, rap, and gore. Like woohoo! :D

I have another performance on 2nd July which is actually for a charity event. I need to write a song about kids! Damn need to rush a tune out, and verse out by tomorrow :S But ah well, a stage is a stage. Also I might be appearing on radio for an interview. More details on that soon ;)

Tzang:

Tzang got married on the end of last month. I am happy for him, not cos he is married to a girl he's dating for ten years, but he feel a closure for himself. I wish him all the best. And hell yes, there will be more to come from him....

Family:

The night of my performance, my mom's husband spoke to me. Suffice to say thathe is not all that happy with my 'character', and threatened to move out and bring my mom and bro with him if I don't get a job before 9 August.

Other than the fact that I feel that some of the things he brought up is unfair, I honestly forward to them moving out. The whole house to myself. But the bills are my fear so, I am now looking for a housemate to share my roof. Not much requirement, just need to help pay a split bills of $150 per month, I guess. And be willing to live with my eccentricities, heh. Any takers?

Handphone:

Lost my hp. Got a new one. I need your numbers again :p

I got my internet connection back. Been a while. So I will try to condense everything that had happened to me in this entry.

PLATFORM 6

It was quite a night. One that I could and would remember for a long time. I made it to the top 5. That means guaranteed slots for performances throughout the year. I can never thank all the people who were there to show their love for me enough. It was great night.

I had actually produced a medley that comprises of two songs for the performance. Took everyone by surprise cos

1) Noone else did a medley

2) They never would imagine that I would sing, whoch I did for the chorus of Blindside

But it was obvious THOA was the showstopper, cos THOA was different. THOA was the black sheep. THOA was the only rap rock group. THOA screamed and sing and rapped. And THOA was the only one that made hip hop followers in the audience do horned fist metal handsign without me telling them to.

So yes, after all the things considered, THOA deserved to be loved or hated. Lucky for me, it was mostly love.

Now that P6 is over, I would like to collaborate with different people. Lutfi's stint with THOA, though short, was powerful. I appreciate his contributions, but as I have made it clear to him. This involvement with THOA is in P6, and I have decided it's best that he goes on his own now. Anyway, I have spoken to Imran about the prospects of THOA and how can Lutfi be involved in the scene still. He said that the door is always opened to Lutfi as a performer if he has good stuff. There's always Speakeasy and other gigs if he wants to perform. That's good to know. It's now all up to Lutfi to work for his place. As a sign of appreciation, I have decided to give him two instrumentals. They're worth 100 bucks each.

Hope to get to speak to him soon.

EP

I have written and produced 6 songs now that I feel comfortable enough to make an EP out of them. Yay me!

You can preview 5 of the 6 songs here:

I will post up the tentative artwork soon. Also, I will post up lyrics in a separate post. By popular demand only lol :p

Part 2 tomorrow. It's nearly 4 am. and I'm seeing stars in my room... 0.o

Hi all.

Sorry for lack of updates. I have lost my net connection... again :(. Hope to get it in two weeks time.

It is a really bad time for me to be broke AND netless. I basically can't do ANYTHING! I have a gig to organise, people to get in touch with, things to research on. This is just so bad. It's like fate is trying to stop me from succeeding what had been an amazing start to the new year. It's utterly frustrating...

On the bright side, my major performance is in 4 DAYS TIME!!! Woot! Excitement, nervousness, hope, despair all in one package is I :p

Here's a poster for the event.



Ooh lookie.. it says 'The House of Anonymous' *puffs chest with pride* :D

Also.. new song for all to hear. This is called Last Man Standing: http://www.soundclick.com/util/getplayer.m3u?id=3808657&q=hi

Will be back really soon. Promise :)
