I am not sure whether the rest of you have the perennial problem of wondering...
"What to do for New Year's Eve?"
Be it in Hawaii, USA Mainland, Singapore, or even my own country, Malaysia, I always wonder what to do because I am not one for crowds that like to push and shove me (if you are one of those and do that to me at this upcoming event, I will be pissed because you are extremely rude! just saying...heheheh) from all sides. To be honest with you, what I did last year may actually be pathetic to many but I enjoyed it.....I stayed in with my boyfriend, and counted down with him rather than being stuck in a traffic jam:p
This year, I've decided to venture out after much insistence from friends to attend the latest New Year's Eve venue at Encorp, The Strand in Kota Damansara which is perfect for me because it's near my house!!! There will be a variety of local talents performing from...
A crowd favourite as a local and international artiste alike! If you don't already know her, she's THE Malaysian singer that collaborated with Flo-Rida on a song called "Take Over" !!! You probably hear her songs on all your local radio stations quite a fair bit. When I first came back and tuned into Hitz.FM, I was listening to a song called "What You Waiting For" and was wondering
"Which American artiste sang this???"
Boy, was I surprise when I found out it was a Malaysian artiste...you can check out one of her Youtube video's here:
What You Waiting For featuring Colbie O' Donnis
Originally the other half of Too Phat, he decided to come out on his own to be a solo Hip-Hop artiste(and what a great decision he made). Ingeniously raps in English and Malay in his songs, such as the one from his album "President" entitled "Do it, DUIT". Also an entrepeneur in his own right, as he is the CEO of Kartel records.
You can tell from this music video that this guy has style and swagger, with his cool music videos. Reminds me of Jay-Z actually...
Do It, Duit for you to get a taste of Hip-Hop before the party
Dennis Lau and Shawn Lee
If you want a different tune to party too like me, you will also be entertained by an extraordinary duet team who consists of Shawn Lee, Malaysia's No.1 Beatboxer and Dennia Lau, a violinist or rather known as Lan Ciao in Nasi Lemak 2.0. I truly like their blend of human voice with violin complementing it as they can create a eclectic tune to what would be rather plain if they were to do it individually.
A sneak peek to what's in store
There are other performers too such as Pop Shuvit, Rezza Salleh, and Najwa! The DJ acts for the night so you get a variety will be Aurology, Hypeembeats + Jee Hoe and Xu. You guys won't be bored..that's for sure!
