of Shuku and of my brother...

It's been a little while...it is already November
How have you been? How was your September and October?

I've been tied up with work...unless i resign, i think my posts will be getting more and more irregular....although I have not been visiting my blog friends as often as I used to, they remain still very much in my thoughts....

I had a very memorable end to my September, with my meeting up with another fellow Malaysian blogger - Shuku! :)
Shuku is a member of The Young KL Singers. Click HERE to know more of YKLS.
I went with my friend Jane, to watch the choir's 5th anniversary concert and we were both really impressed! They sang 17 songs selected from their many performances since 2002 and oh my favourite for the evening - Autumn Leaves (Lyrics by Jacques Prevert & Johnny Mercer)! That was really enchanting....And all the others are wonderful!
Shuku is really a very gifted person. An ex-nurse (am I right shuku?), she can draw, create and sew costumes, play the piano, sing - she has a very beautiful voice! And i think she's also looking into getting her first book published! Oh my! I'm sulking now ;) because, whenever I offer to sing to my friends, they will beg very hard that I don't! :D so, all that I am allowed to do is to just shut my mouth and 'wriggle' my ears....

Well, I'm really glad to have finally met Shuku :) and will forgive her for being too gifted!
................

And that was the good part of my September.....
What about October?



My brother Victor released his very first English album - Need U Most...
It is a compilation of some popular English songs from the 70's till the 90's...
I'm really proud of him!

To know more about this album or his other mandarin releases,

And before I leave again...here's another sketch that I did more than 2 months ago, when I suddenly woke up at 3am....it is a sketch of my cabinet in the hall area...
Can you see Marjorie's print there?
Good night everyone....

Constance! Oh it's so good to have you back, now you make me blush all over. Ex-clinic administrator, yeah --and WE WON A SILVER!!!! For a months' work, we're REALLY happy. Malaysia took a gold in the Contemporary music category - the Dithyrambic Singers from KL! They played Negaraku, it was such a proud moment!

I have been dreadfully ill since coming back from Jakarta but I will post when I'm a bit better - parting present from Indonesia, the flu!

And that is a LOVELY sketch of your cabinet. I remember it from one of your photos I think...and the IF sketch is just -gorgeous-. We really -have- to meet up again for tea...

Flu!

So good to see you again. I lost a link to your blog so I'm even more happy that I've found you again :)
Congratulations to your brother.
As for the sketch - it's lovely. Your pictures are so soft and beautiful. And I love the "intertextuality" - I think Marjorie's picture is instantly recognizable to anyone who has seen her works.
