when the lights go off

16th Sep 2016

Was at the clinic late last night with some friends to get some medical replenishments. on our way there, we walked past a group of teenagers, dancing and moving to the beat coming out of their music box. i could hear some beat of drums too, but i’m not sure if it was a drum dial kind of thing. and then i saw their leader, a yound lad, who was instructing them on their next move. it touched me so much seeing their enthusiasm and commitment to dance and rehearse, even in the dark. (it was a mini stage setup for public, but none of the lights were lit up) it’s good to see that our teenagers still appreciate dancing in the dark. lol

music plays an important part in a cafe, too

13th Sep 2016

I was at this cafe with a friend of mine last weekend. It was located at Megalong Mall in a small town in Penampang. It was a small cafe with only about 5 tables. Food choices were variety and so are the drinks. We’d normally go to the cafe next door to it, which had more seating and finger food choices – but the only thing that put us off at that other cafe was the volume of their music setting. It was wayyyy too loud for our ears. It really cuts the mood of eating. We could also hardly hear our own voices when conversing to each other.

I really think that music plays a huge part in an eatery place. Too loud a music pains the ear (unless you’re in a bar – but nobody goes to a bar to enjoy food!) and no music at all makes a place boring. Soft music playing in the background makes the perfect ambience for an eatery, in my opinion. And if one could afford it, maybe get some musicians (who owns a cr4 maybe) to play at a corner as well. That would definitely lift up the mood!

So if you’re a person who owns a cafe, I hope you’d consider not playing too loud a music in a cafe. Ha ha

lil sister

14th Aug 2016

So my sister was around last weekend before she flew to Kuching for the Rainforest World Music Fest. During that short visit back home, we managed to do a lil bit of shopping (window shopping included). She got me this unique bracelet from one the of local seller at the mall, it has this pink mini sandal hanging on it – which reminds me so much of the sandy beach.

It was a day filled with foods and lots of walking (under the hot sun!) but fun nonetheless. It got me thinking that I haven’t been spending a lot of time with my lil sister – which is sad, really. I think the only time we actually spent some time together was that time when we did a lil pilgrimage with my parents. My sister and I shared the same room and we spent the nights eating kek lapis Sarawak in the hotel room! Ha ha!

I should make time and spend some quality time with her before she got married and have kids of her own! lol. I guess next year’s Rainforest World Music Festival will be seeing me and my sister together again. In Kuching. Again. I think sisters should go on a vacation together whenever they can. You don’t need a reason for it, just go and spend some time together while you still can.

Rainforest World Music Festival 2017 – we are coming!!!
