14Dec David Tao World Tour in Guangzhou!!

It was our last stop in China, 
and as strange as it sounds, 
i will be missing all the good and bad things that came along with touring in this nation; 
the disposable stinky toilets, the bad food, the loud but actually warm china taxi uncles etc. 

I kinda like China, in a touristy manner :)

Always a pleasure onboard SQ..
they mounted mistletoes to welcome the festive cheer!! 
All i wanted for Christmas was.. a hot guy to sit next to me under the mistletoe!!!

Another outdoor concert venue..

My first singing under winter conditions.. 
It was only about 15degs but the summer girl in me was already wearing 4 layers
and still feeling cold!

Late-Night Sessions with Kexin - Fix You by Coldplay

I met someone who helped me through a period of darkness, 
and though i have no idea how it all happened exactly, 
i am thankful for his presence and jokes :) 

So this video is for all those who had someone that helped you tide through a rough patch :)

Whether it was intentional or not, 
thank you and this song is for you, Brandon.

Late-Night Sessions with Kexin - Your Body Is A Wonderland by John Mayer

Late-Night Sessions with me
capture a series of my late-night guitar practicing ventures.

Most are not perfect,
but they came from the the truest part of myself.
I always think that nighttime draws out a different side of me,
mostly the dark and emo side,
and that's when creativity strikes,
in the deep of the night.

So here my first Late-Night Sessions Video cover,
by my favourite artiste John Mayer :)

The kind folks at SGAG later reposted my video on their page!
Was highly amused by keen observations from netizens.. lol
In my defense, it was the G chord's fault!

I wish i have a dog...

I wish i have a dog. 
I really do. 
Never had the chance to know what it's like to grow up with this furry thing living by my side.
And now that i'm older, i don't want to have the responsibility of taking care of it
and risk neglecting the dog :(

So i live vicariously though my friend!! 
We took her grover out for some exercisin' :D

In the deep of the night,
when the lights are out,
silence all around,
the four walls are closing in,
i hear a voice.

It questions me,
tells me i'm too emotional,
that letting my heart rule over my head is a sign of childish behaviour.
It sighs and walks away,
shaking its head and left me stranded,
feeling like a child who has just stolen a piece of candy from the stall.

My downfall.
I'm grappling in darkness,
in a quicksand of misjudgements and emptiness.
But you were not there to pull me out of it,
because you were too, struggling to get out of your own pool.
So we sank,
until one day everything was buried six feet under,
and nothing but memories left.

15Nov David Tao World Tour in Fuzhou!

Fuzhou pitstop was one of the best this tour, 
because the boss specially arranged for a hotspring getaway for the band. 

Window seats gave me a bird's eye view 

Lyrics writing on the plane..

Reached our villa at night 
and was greeted by a hugeass bed with romantic dim lights, 
comfy duvet and sheets..
and the room all by myself :D 

I prepared black mask for this occasion hahaa

The next morning i woke up to a mountainous view :D 

A look outta the window..

Race The Dead 2013!

Singaporeans are getting so bored of running that we
made zombies chase after us,
made people throw colour powder at us, 
decided to run in the dark while wearing glow-in-the-dark accessories,
why not combine all; run in the dark and make people throw glow-in-the-dark powder at us while being chased by zombies? :D

Well i had tonnes of fun singing at Siloso Beach for Race The Dead 2013 this year! 
Always loved performing on beaches because everyone is always in the mood for some partying :D

Really had a goodtime at Diner En Blanc this year!
I was rather put off by the amount of preparation we had to go through for the night beforehand,
but i thought it was pretty worth it at the end of the night!!

1 Oct David Tao World Tour in ShenZhen!

It's China's National Day!
Took to ShenZhen the land of cheap shopping, yet i did non!
Basically spent all my time watching movies in the hotel,
and having extended hours of gymming session.

Stadium this time was huge!
Reminds me of Beijing's Bird's Nest...

My fellow backing vocals :) 

As usual we stayed and ran through new songs with the boss till night fell..

Calm before the storm..

Next morning same drill, 
when one is bored, one pretends to be giving a speech..

Waiting gives me a lot of time to practice on David Tan's Taylor...
Weather was so hot we were dyingg...
Everyone whipped out their shades and took off whatever extra clothing they had on!

Jamie guitarhero, Saxy Tony and Guzheng Jing Jing..

Bassman Casey..

My big smiley face on the huge screen when DT was introducing the band!

Post-Show Celebration Dinner! 
That night a roasted suckling pig with evil blinking eyes was sacrificed :(

It was our band nanny Tammy's birthday and each girl received a stalk of rose!

No birthday girl goes unnoticed and unpunished..
but Tammy can drink she's up for it!

A shot with our stage manager from Hong Kong, Jacky!

We got a little high after drinking and started posing with the champagne tower..
Tried to strike a sexy pose to no avail.. Jing Jing is too damn good at it!

One with the boss David Tao!! 
Thank you so much for giving me the chance to meet so many wonderful musicians, 
and to share my voice worldwide..
It has been my pleasure singing for you and I can't wait for the rest of the shows!! 

Next trip, 2Nov @ Nanning, China!
