Bedroom Musician Series Part III


Last night, we went to another installment of the BMS. This time around, only two singer/songwriters were showcased.

First up on stage was Rendra Zawawi. His songs just oozed emotion. Azzu and I were transfixed. I have to say, the perfect beverage to be had while listening to Rendra's songs were hot chocolate. Seriously. And somehow, Dede said that I can never, EVER date him, because he looks like my brother Hadibi and it would be all weird. Go figure.

Second, was a newcomer. It was his first time performing on stage. And what a performance it was. Upbeat, catchy and sincere. Joshua Foong (self proclaimed burp boy) already has 30 songs written, a fact that made jaws drop. 30. Three oh. Nice. :)

To wrap it all up, Mia rocked the house down (AGAIN) with a nice mix of her songs, a little Maroon 5 and a Beatles tribute. I don't know what they put in the hot chocolate, but I was feeling a little high. Azzu, Dede and I we're practically dancing on the sofas. Yes, we were amused. We had fun. It was all good.







Okay, here are the CD's that I bought from the gigs. If you see any of them, in any store, I suggest that you pick them up, bring it over to the counter and PAY. It's all worth it, trust me.




And since Dede and I won 4 free tickets, to next week's BMS, you can expect more of these reviews in the near future. :D
