These year, and few weeks in particular have been a rollercoaster. Time sure flies when you’re busy and I’ve been busy as hell.
Countless insect bites line my arms and legs – battle scars of a battle about to begin. In a couple of weeks, I’ll be in Indonesia again for the upcoming Big Bad Wolf Book Sale in Surabaya.
On the side, I’ve also been busy helping out with the purchasing of books for our future sales (in case you’re wondering what I do at work or when I’m traveling, it’s what I usually do at work). Oh yeah, and I crossed the one year mark last week as well.
Over the weekend, Milin and I celebrated our upcoming second year anniversary.
This year I started exploring new ways to create music. I’ve been dabbling with some electronic shiz on my PC, phone and tablet. I’m terrible and have nothing of value to share, but keep your ears peeled for some chillstep (I kid) tunes in the future. I’m gonna pick up a MIDI controller soon and learn me some piano. Also, I decided that I should learn how to play lead guitar so I’ve also started that. In the meantime you can still expect to hear my emo, crybaby acoustic songs at gigs.
Which brings me to this Thursday night – I’ll also be playing my hundredth gig. Yes, that’s right. And if you’re wondering how I know, it’s because I have been chronicling it on my blog.
I’m not going to do anything fancy or whatever, I’m just playing an open mic slot for a show my charismatic and foul-mouthed friend, Ian Tai is headlining <3 It'll also be the first time I'll be playing the same show as Ferhan's younger brother, Luqman. He’s like part of the next generation of Malaysian Youtubers, follow him for some lit content fam.
Eyebrow-raising solo 5-chord powerhouse singalongs about the fluff of life, delivered by a chubby Chinaman with a Fu Manchu-contestable beard.
