Well, work has been ongoing in terms of composing for the year-end musical in Perth, Extra Ordinary People, and I'm going to be generous (and sneaky) by posting up a sneek preview of some of the songs, heheh. I'm quite proud of the work I'm doing with this one; it's still very much classic NickChoo (arf) and yet, due to its superhero theme, it's got an edge to it that's not apparent in my other works. Here, have a listen to some of the (instrumental only) music from the show! Check it out:
Oh yeah, on Saturday, my dear friends Michael and Anrie tied the knot, and I had the honour of attending and playing the piano for their little wedding ceremony at KLPAC. Yes, you read right: at the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre. Turns out they had met there eight years ago in a theatre production, so they thought it was only fitting to celebrate their nuptials in the venue where they'd first set eyes on each other. (By the by, Michael was in the 2008 production of The Edge, and Anrie was one of the Angels in 2010's Follow The Light [on the far left in the linked photo]). Congratulations, guys!!! And thank you for letting me play such a special part on your big day!

And speaking of six years, yesterday (Monday) marked the final publication of articles on The Nut Graph, which I've been working on and with since 2008. From a daily publication, we transitioned into putting up new articles weekly, and now our editor and co-founder Jacqueline has decided it's time to call it quits, to a flurry of impassioned messages on Twitter. So we've hung up our hats with this final article from Jac on why she came to this decision, and what the "little website that could" managed to achieve in its six years of existence. Goodbye, TNG! It's been a blast! (The site will still remain online as a resource, though, heheh!)
Well, I think that's about it for now. If anything else comes to mind that I feel I need to document here for posterity, I'll be sure to come back and update. Until next time!
