in anycase, on friday, i was having this thai performance in Orchard Hotel. its a kid of a thai food festival thingy where they invite the chefs from thailand and cook and we were like the big entourage playing music for the official opening. in other words, we are like the better live version of a radio or cd player playing thai classical music. heh.. well, the pay is so-so lah but i guess, the most difficult thing doing this gig is that when you are starving, and you have to concentrate and play music in front of the buffet table, it gets pretty challenging. really. most of the people aren;t really interested in the music or dance that we put up. i think some of them rather find us annoying. and i find it so hard when you are on stage famished, and all you smell is tom yam soup and friend chicken and stuffs of that nature… but it was fun though. really… an expericence as they say. its all for the nostalgia…. i think i will have more gigs of such nature coming up soon. just have to make sure i am not hungry when i go up to the stage… being a musician is a tough thing….
like one thai bureucrat and his 2 wives. muahahha…
my best mimi smile.
the musicians and the dancer.
ok, the dancer. glam right? nice right? wah lau, this costume took us 4 hours and 3 people to put it on lah. and, its not the zip and go kind, you practically have to sew the costume on to the dancer lah. how diva is that. and and, the dance peice we are doing is merely a 5 mins item. how diva is that, again! like 4 hours to put on, dance for 5 mins, and then another 30 mins to dismental the costume. and all you have to do is stand there and wait for the costume to be fixed on you.. hahahaha, the thai’s really know how to rock it man..
and thus, the musicians and the dancer, in another ensemble altogether. this time, the costume is so much more simpler to put on lah. no 4 hours and 3 man’s job…
and the most nicest paparazzi shot of me after the performance.
and so, yesterday, was the best time of the week before a new week start. hmmn.. do i make sense? anyways, my thai music teacher, Koong, is being very generous, kind, loverly and fun enough to organize a BBQ in honour of mu birth anniversary. (remember why i dont called is a birthday but birth anniversary instead? oh, maybe i will explained it later..)
