you go to my head

Back from a wonderful trip. JB is great, Singapore is good for the soul and KL is home sweet home. Got Randy back yesterday and he looks smashing (no pun intended)!

Care United Club Johor Bahru, kudos to a job well done! You are truly a charity everyone should use as a model. The amount of effort that you ladies pour into your work only humbles me. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of you if only for the weekend.

I haven't had much time to read the news and crap since coming back yesterday. Anything interesting I should worry about? Sugar still a crisis? Siti Nurhaliza married yet? No? Well, tough titties. Doesn't leave me much does it?

I think I should be an Apple Computer consultant. I seem to getting a higher buzz from helping the KL sales staff sell iPods and computers. I'm avoiding watching any theatre work. I'm getting just a tad bit tired from the same-ole same-ole. Funny innit? My passion right now is thinking of ideas of keeping open The Top Room. The most wonderful place in town to listen to Jazz. It's only 3 months old but the owners are thinking of possibly shutting it down. Why? Not enough bums on seats. Last weekend, the incomparable Mike Veerapen Trio performed to an audience of 6. That's right, S-I-X. This is the very place that I'm supposed to sing one day (lord knows when, I'm never good enough it seems) and if it closes down then what? Pay the daylight robbery rental of KLPAC and TASB? You can fuck that!

I just don't understand why the Top Room isn't jamming with people. The only time I've seen it filled was opening night. What a fun night that was! The music then, as it is now, FANTASTIC!!!

So, if you, like me, don't want to see the end of a dream, head over to The Top Room and leave your comments and suggestions. Can?

silly me, can you believe it... i've never heard of The Top Room before until you mentioned it. Will try to go there and bring my girlfriends along... :)

Thanks Elmira. The more the merrier and that means there'll always a place to go to to listen to the best Jazz music in KL. Remember, it's only on Fridays and Saturdays. Do check out their blog.

Now that you have brought it to our attention, will definitely check out TTR. Hey, check out this link for 80's music, they have videos and songs! Yes, even the video for Fade To Grey!!! It's a site for DURAN DURAN mainly.

worry not my dear friend.. the owners are not thinking of shutting it down [not yet, anyway] but if we don't get 'nuff bods in there real soon then we can all bury our heads in mire and you can join the rest of malaysia in their illusive quest for fame and glory by joining malaysian idol or akademi fantasyland :(

that'd be a really sad day... i think i'll set up a mamak stall somewhere and play jazz cd's... and call it Jazzmamak.

Edwin Sumun said...

I hope not. But it's a possibilty if the numbers don't add up.

photo-effe: I can't seem to access your blog.

Hi Edwin,
Photo-effe is on one of my links. Seems to work fine.

Mr. iPod salesperson, any suggestions on where I can go to get a funky sports/action casing for my iPod video? Went to the 1U mac shop and they said they didn't have the armband thing for iPod video. - then nada - No suggestions or alternatives. What sort of sales person is that?!
