Li Hsian and Srihari Iyer's wedding 31st January 2010

Srihari Iyer and Li Hsian are getting married and I am truly honoured to be singing at his wedding. Like I told him about 10 years ago when he asked me if I would sing at his wedding, "YES YES YES!". He's a precious friend and am really happy that the two of them are getting married. They're so made for each other.

Will be playing with none other than the maestro himself, Tay Cher Siang on piano, Vincent Ong on bass, and Faz Aznam of guitar.

BMW Chinese New Year Open House - 23rd & 24th Jan 2010

Oh what fun we had at the showrooms, with Nish Tham on keyboards and Hiro on bass. And love love love lion dances.. so two days of that was a real treat for me especially, coz I LOOVE Lion Dances - growing up in Penang, I used to love Lion Dances during CNY! and still do! We did some Chinese/Mandarin oldies which were super fun - Mei Guei Mei Guei, Wo Yao Ni De Ai, Ru Guo Mei You Ni, Ayo Mama (ni ger pu yao tuay wa shen chi).. and some english old numbers to fit into the shanhai jazz theme.

But we had most fun oggling at those shiny brand new cars... yummy! (one can dream lol!)
