• Amps Air

    Have been admiring the wireless earpods, but did not find I like.  Tried the Apple EarPods when I was in Tokyo, find it kind of weird, to have earphones cord being cut off. While I was at Bic Camera in Osaka, a night before heading home to KL, I bought Sol Republic Amps Air. I first tried Sol Republic in 2012, when I was in Singapore for a work trip.  Before boarding I walked into tax free electronic shop to get a pair earphones for me to enjoy some music while coming back to KL.  I picked it. Sol Republic and I did not end up well.  The microphone constantly…

  • yahyel, Tokyo

    Retna and I were in Tokyo in November for alt-J. yahyel did the opening act.  Honestly, we have no idea about the band, first time hearing their performance.  More so, no idea on the music genre, art approaches, neither the style. I have no idea the songs they played, but the next day I had the Spotify (which I no longer use) on to listen their albums, I could sort of remember what tracks they played during the opening act. Kill Me Once Joseph The Flare Rude Iron Probably need yahyel team to confirm whether I got the above right. Yahyel, an Indie pop band from Tokyo, established since 2015.…

  • alt-J, Tokyo

    During one of the work lunches, client asked me what concert I would like to watch in 2017, I said alt-J, that was in January 2017.  We waited for a while until alt-J announced the Asia tour, and we checked which locations we would like to attend, picked Japan, as we could bring the kids along for their first Japan experience, while we watch the concert. The challenge to buy tickets for concerts in Japan is always a challenge – language as generally no English in the ticketing website.  So after some trial, bought the tickets from a ticket agents with some handling fee.  The tickets were mailed to me…

  • Learning about nakedness

    Naked, is a taboo. While my mother does not allow me to see her naked while I was growing up, as she told me, it is not right, because I should not see any woman without the clothes on. I wanted to tell my mom that I have seen her naked when I was born, and same goes for her, she has seen me naked as a child. I used to swim in the public pool in Kuala Lumpur, where I used to encounter naked men bathing, walking about.  I used to think it was strange where these men wanted someone to look at them naked. However, I took nakedness…

  • 東京へようこそ

    The last time Retna and I were in Tokyo was in 2013, when we came to experience Japan for the first time.  I came to Nagoya and Kyoto in 2014 for work. While I really love Japan, I could not find enough reason to come back.  However, since Taipei, Hong Kong were not on the interest of the children, and we took them to Rome, and told them so much about Japan experience, they asked us, let’s do Japan. We arrived at Tokyo after a few movies that I watched and had really good laugh during the flight, until the twins told me, I have to lower my laugh. November…
