As some of you will know, I’m participating in Nanowrimo this year, so until the end of the month I will put my blog on hold as I don’t believe I’ll have the capacity to write my novel (I need to churn out about 1.7k words a day!) and update this blog at the same time. On the bright side, I have about 10 years worth of archives to go through if you want to read my work (haha). I may post something here every now and then, but it’ll likely be unsubstantial. For all those of you who are doing this year’s Nanowrimo, all the best! And if you’re thinking about it, go ahead! Make sure you sign up at the Nanowrimo website and feel free to add me as a writing buddy. I’ll also be posting my daily word count to Instagram. Here’s to a fruitful November!
Played two sets earlier this week that I didn’t have time to share about on my blog – PLOY’s Monday open mic night and KL Journal Open Mic last week, which makes my next scheduled appearance number 110.

Venue: La Frontera @ Jaya One
It’s going to be a two day long event with 42 acts – sign ups are still open if anybody is interested, just get in touch with them if you’re interested in playing.
I’ll be playing on the first day (28th October) some time in between 1-4pm. Drop by for some music and beer <3
Is it so hard to remove the s at the end of years if the preceding number is 1? Why not just make it year(s), that way you don’t even have to change anything?
Man, this blog is almost 10 years old now. I’ve spent a third of my life writing on it. 10 more years to go before I die a triumphant death. Can’t wait. I wonder if anybody will bother to help me keep it running. I guess I could pay my hosting fees for a hundred more years before I die. Maybe blogs won’t even exist in the future anymore. Everything would be VR and shit. This site would be a relic of the past.
Like paper. Not really. People still read physical books. And magazines. And newspapers. Maybe only hipsters will read my blog next time.
Anyway, it’s that time of the job again – where I get super busy right before a sale. This time even more so because Jakarta 2017 is gonna be bigger than before. I’ve cut down my dota time to once a week. I haven’t even been able to keep up with all the DAC matches. But OG has been kicking ass, so I’m rooting for them to win the whole thing.
Tomorrow I may be playing my 103rd gig. Not confirmed because I don’t know what time I’ll get off work – but if I am able to make it on time, you’ll be able to catch me at:

So, it’s been awhile since my last post. Some of you probably noticed because I stopped updating five times a week!
Well, I’ve got some bad news – unfortunately due to my current circumstances, it’ll be impossible for me to update this blog that frequently. My writing spree has come to an end. Work has increased a bazillion percent and I simply don’t have the time to sit down and write so often anymore. And with all the events I have to be part of (in and out of KL), it’s too stressful to manage.
For those of you who aren’t in the know, the project I was hired for was put on hold indefinitely (due to some issues) so I’ve been transferred and am now an employee at BookXcess. Because of that, I have loads more to do. I’ll be part of upcoming Big Bad Wolf sales, road shows, as well as other stuff. I’ve even cut down the number of online courses I’ve been doing because I can’t cope. I don’t know if the job load will lighten in the future, but hey – work is work, and it’s a priority in life.
The number of gigs I’ve been playing has also been reduced significantly. However, I might have one scheduled for April 16th at Grind 22. I’ll update this blog when I receive confirmation!
In the meantime, I’ll try to post at least twice a week. It’ll happen on Fridays/weekends – since those are the nights I’m usually free.
Also, this blog is almost 9 years old. Thanks for reading guys, it’s been a pleasure writing. Look forward to my next post – it was the final assignment for the last course I completed – English Grammar and Essay Writing.
Hello all, just writing in to let you guys know I’ll be on a short blogging break for about 3 weeks. Reason being: I’m working at the Big Bad Wolf Sale taking place from 4th – 14th December, so I’ll be tied up at work. Doing 12 hour shifts is probably going to drain me, so I decided that I’ll take a break from blogging until the event is over. This will also give me a chance to fill my mind with ideas of things to write about.
In other news, I’ve got something to announce – I’ll be organizing my second gig ever – Gig #93 which will be happening at Barlai on the 18th of December. It’s my favorite coffee place, so I couldn’t be happier to have a gig elsewhere. Anyway – more details will be released in the coming weeks.
I’ll be performing again tomorrow at Grind22 in Bangsar. It starts at 8:00pm and I’ll be performing alongside Endee Ahmad, Hilmy Amim, and Ian Tai. It’s a pretty chill coffee place, come for drinks and music if you’ve got the time!
Gig #89 was an open mic night at Rougeur 2 weeks ago. Pretty cool place, though a bit hard to find and not really a gigging venue, but it’s always fun to be able to play at new places!
Firstly, happy birthday to Jessica. Max’s lovely and amazing mother. There’s nothing I can say here that I haven’t said to her before, so I’ll just share the speech I made at her wedding (oh, happy first anniversary to Jessica and Edwin too!):

Wow, I can’t believe I haven’t played a show since May. I guess my plans to play 25 shows in 2013 can go out the window :’) it was ambitious, but due to me lacking the motivation past the first few months of the year, and the amount of things I have to do in my free time it just wasn’t possible (or I wasn’t dedicated enough). My plans to record the EP also didn’t pan out. The Wishing hasn’t played a gig in months either. It’s like nothing musical has been working out for me. Oh well. Regardless, it’s time to put an end to this dry spell. Last week, I received a message from Reza inviting me to play for this show. Needless to say, I accepted. So, if you’ve got no plans this Tuesday, do drop by to say hi and watch me perform!
