Meeting Emma Hewitt! Dream come true!

 photo DSC_0908_zpsaf596bac.jpg

To start things off, I'm a really big fan of vocal trance. I really love mixes done by Armin, Gareth Emery, Dash Berlin and more. So when I heard that Emma Hewitt is coming down to KL, I got really excited as she is one of my favourite vocal trance singers hands down!

She has awesome tracks such as "Waiting", "Be your sound", "Miss you paradise", "Disarm yourself" and more. The lyrics meaningful, and the vocals awesome, makes a whole new experience when you're listening to it.

I was invited over to her concert at KL Live and I was given a chance to meet her up. With a few other friends, we were given about 20 minutes with her just getting to know more about her, snapping pictures and getting autographs! It was a dream come true to know I've finally met her!

She was super friendly during the session and definitely it is not a mistake calling her my idol *fan boy mode on*

You're basically able to take a photo, and record sounds of the environment at the same time.



And last but not least, some other pictures taken that night:

Winning a crate of Heineken and possibly a trip to Amsterdam!

Heineken has always been a great host for having parties such as Heineken Thirst, Green Room, Sensation and more. Instead of all these parties, do you even know how to serve a perfect pint of Heineken?

Up until today, I didn't know that there were 5 steps in creating a perfect Heineken Pint

The steps are:


 photo HeinekenPouringRitual_zps5446ee85.jpg

1) Rinse & prepare a clean glass
2) Pour the beer at a 45 degree angle, straighten when 3/4 full and fill the glass till full
3) Skim the top of the foam at a 45 degree angle
4) Ensure the bottom of the foam lies on top of the Heineken Star's "Shoulders"
5) Serve the beer with the Heineken Logo facing the customer


A bunch of us was invited to the GAB factory where Heineken is produced. We were given a chance to attend a Heineken workshop with Heineken Draught Master, Keith Nair. Keith showed us the proper techniques to pour our Heineken, and also told us why it is important to follow this Heineken Pouring Ritual All the steps are needed to ensure that the quality of your beer is at its best and it'll be enjoyable for the customer

Flipping and crazy things in Langkawi!

 photo DSC_0780_zpsf1fbb59f.jpg

Another year has gone by and this is the 3rd year in a row that we're having our annual trip to Langkawi. The old gymnastic mates and I continued the tradition of getting wasted and crazy at our Duty Free heaven! It was crazy as we nearly missed our flight there due to some late  members, like seriously we boarded the flight and 3 minutes later we took off *phew* lucky for us!

5 of us this time, Sean, Sydney, Sukesh, May and I headed there, got our booze and checked into our hotel. We booked Langkapuri Hotel at Cenang beach as it is situated just right next to the beach. A sad part this time where Sydney's boyfriend came over to surprise her and well, took her away for the whole 3 days. So it was left with us 4. Well May can be considered as a dude too, so it was like a bro's night out!
