I’m writing to you in brief moments of quiet, in between all the chaos that is the first week of the year. This is not where I am right now though, and unfortunately neither is it where I was any time recently. It’s just a picture from what felt like an eternity ago because I don’t really take too many pictures.

The celebration of the new year came and went by so quickly. There was hardly any time to reflect, or breathe, or let things settle. There’s so much to do, and so many places to be. Bus rides and train rides are now for replying to work messages that seemed to have plagued my phone. 
Last year was a crazy adventure. I made music I didn’t release, and plans that didn’t happen. I had a car to drive, and my own room. But then sometimes cars breakdown in the middle of a highway and sometimes neighbours try to make your life miserable (and sometimes they succeed). I left my job and then came back because even though it takes so much more from me than I can give, I somehow still love doing it.

I learnt a lot about life and friendship, and I’m learning to trust the unpredictability of it all.

Then I met the most wonderful people that made music fun and exciting, and possible again. I went to Kampar for the first time with them, and we even played at some really cool places. Now I associate those places with the memories made, and it holds a special place in my heart. They brought back the optimism and excitement for music that had dwindled, and I’m so grateful. 
I guess maybe last year wasn’t just a crazy adventure, 
but a really wonderful one too.

Thank you do much for your support so far, I hope you’ve had a good first week of the year so far! And if it wasn’t so good, I hope brighter days come your way soon. “In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.” — Robert Frost
Looking back, and taking these memories with me into the new year.
Getting to perform to an audience listening to the words I had written was both so incredibly magical and terrifying at the same time. It made me feel less alone, and I think that’s what music is for, to let us know we’re not the only ones feeling the way we do. Thank you Musicsynthesis Festival for giving songwriters and musicians a platform to share our stories.

Last year I played at KLPAC for the first time for Short + Sweet 2016. That was the first time I had ever performed ’24 Years’ to such a large audience. It won two awards that year, Audience Choice award as well as the award for Best Overall Production. I was pleasantly surprised too, because I didn’t know it was a competition until the day before it started. That week of preparation, performing and meeting so many awesome people gave me the confidence to continue writing and to not give up.
Flash forward one year later, and I’ve recorded and released ’24 years’ along with a few more songs with pH Music 指数音乐, and I’m grateful for all the adventures and lessons learned so far. 
On Wednesday Dec 20th, I’ll be performing at KLPAC again! This time for Musicsynthesis Festival (光合作用原创音乐节); a two-day music festival showcasing original music in Malaysia. Hope to see you there! 
Tickets at the door, or online. More details on @jumuromusic’s page :) .

Preface: It’s nostalgic to be living in December. Looking back on the year, holding on to the moments that are like fading photographs. Sometimes people change and it’s like you don’t know them anymore. Sometimes you’re the one who has changed, not them; and it’s the face in the mirror you no longer recognise. We’ve become strangers now, catching glances into each other’s eyes and bringing back glimpses into what was, but isn’t anymore.
‘Familiar Strangers’ lyric video is up on Facebook and Youtube! .

So I changed my sim card because I’m in Thailand now for Skate Bangkok and didn’t realise that my whatsapp number had changed as well. I could not receive any messages the past few days, hence having no idea that my song was going to be released today. But now I do! And if you haven’t heard it yet, link’s in my bio!
