I am 23!

Tuesday, October 03, 2017

And yup, I have turned 23 (my birthday is 29 Sept btw, it'll be belated the time I'm posting this)!! Happy birthday to myself~ It's been a great 23 years! So thankful for all the good vibes around me! 

I have certainly come a long way since my younger days, especially after being more involved in music-making. I started posting song covers on YouTube when I was 18, and joined singing competitions in school and outside (but always never get in one HAHA), but it was only after I entered NUS where I was given a lot of opportunities to shine! 

SAFRA The Ultimate Voice 2016 where I came in 2nd. Whats with this angry face?!

When I was 19, my hall friend got me to sing at his brother's wedding even though I've had no experience doing gigs outside. That was my FIRST wedding gig ever. It was nerve-wrecking but exciting. It made me want to sing more outside. I loved the adrenaline rush of being in front of an audience! Fast forward 3 years now he's getting married too hehe congrats #XIANYU (cute leh sounds like 咸鱼 lolol)!!

When I was 21, I was given my first regular gig thanks to a friend who recommended me (thanks Chin Bee hehe). It's been about 2 years and I'm still singing there now! Do drop by Whisk & Paddle on Fridays (2 bands are taking the Fridays so you gotta check out my social media for the schedule) if you are free =p 

I was also given more opportunities to gig outside due to Ming Wei from MICappella, who really helped me out (a lot)!! It was also through Ming Wei that I got to know Zerlene, my trusted gig partner until now :) Other than gigging, we do song covers and other projects together!

Other than the people mentioned above, there are MANY MORE people who have helped me out in music journey (including friends who are not in the industry / supporters). I think if I try to list out everyone I will need 1000000 days... But anyway, I would like to thank all of you, because without your support and encouragement, I wouldn't have grown so much :) 

I just graduated from NUS in this July, and have been kept busy by music-related jobs and projects ever since. I have been thinking about finding a day-job, but for now, I would like to concentrate on doing what I love the most :)

Why 23 already still so act cute hmmm

23 is just the start of my adult life. 

More obstacles will come my way, but for now, HWAITING!!!
