Greatest Birthday performance at Blu Jaz Cafe : July 8, 2012

I can’t express with words how happy I am today, do give me sometime to thank you all.

Last night I had greatest birthday party ever(I’m gonna lie every year about this), if you know me sometime, you know I love it when people connect, especially – I maybe the reason why you were all there last night, but I saw so many different kinds of people hanging out and making music together, talking to each other singing dancing…so multi-cultural, so mixed up! I loved it!!! Thanks Anne Weerapass for your amazing carrot cake!!! It was so damn good :D and thank you Blu Jaz Cafe for a bottle of Moët…You know I love champagne :)

The amount of the music energy last night was INSANE. It was a full house listening crowd from the gecko! My crazy fresh quartet with uncontrollable talent : Andrew Lim(guitar), Christy Smith(bass) and Aaron Jamez Lee(drums)!! It was definitely not a finished product, but we played as much as we could at moments we had together, and it was totally kickin’ ass. It is always great to have Andrew back in Singapore. It is a treat.

My requests were taken : Infamous “Hit The Road Jack” by Lily Anna & Christy…they are crazy together. It was a theatrical performance…Someone up the video please!!!

Thank you for playing and making my night so so so special – Anne W, Erik H, Willy, Munir Alsagoff, Shimona 恩赐 Kee, Alemay Fernandez, Shawn Letts, Chok Kerong, Anson Fung & my new friends Mika Arisaka(vo) & Takuya Tanaka(gt) from Tokyo!!! Also so many more great musicians whom I couldn’t feature – I’m sorry that I’m always a bit self-centered when it comes to jam part of the evening, but I hope you forgive me.

My family, friends, students, supporters, music family, thank you so much again for making my birthday weekend so special and reminding me I’m insanely lucky to have all of you.
