The Beastlings- a must-see talented and versatile performance

I've not attended any new musicals and shows for a few years now and when producer, stage performer and emcee Joanne Kam, sent me a message about The Beastlings, the description of the music that was lined up for the weekend show immediately attracted me.

Q: What do you get if you combined The Beatles, The Four Seasons, Boys II Men, Backstreet Boys,The Warblers and One Direction into ONE Group?

A: An all singing, harmonising, fun combination of vocal magic performing Pop, Rock, R & B and Soul medleys from the 70s, 80s, 90s and current hits in fresh new arrangements!

I knew nothing about the singers but for RM60 and a welcome drink, it is not too big of a sum to pay to watch such great local talent.

Theatre Lounge Cafe, Plaza Damas 3, Sri Hartamas is a cozy little outlet where you can picture Cher performing with Christina Aguilera in Burlesque. You're seated close enough to the stage to feel that you're connected to the performers and Creative & Music Director, Llew Marsh, who played the piano and sang, made sure the boys interacted with the audience well.

The setting was so casual that it felt that we were all friends. The boys in their 20s and 30s, I'm assuming, were candid and charming in their own way. 

The band consisted of Abi Manyu (he has Michael Jackson's voice), Afham Zainal (he is a little raw but with more practise can shine, sings with a bass tone), playful Izen Kong (his theatre like expressions and versality reminds me of Roomie) and Jee Yann (he is the rebellious rocker).

Together with Llew Marsh they delivered such an energetic 75- minute performance. They opened with a medley of Michael Jackson's "Love Never Felt So Good" and Bee Gees' "Emotion" and other covers included Maroon 5's "Sunday Morning", "Marry You" and "Just the Way You Are" by Bruno Mars, Innuendo's "Belaian Jiwa", a medley of songs by Lady Gaga and the highlight for me was the 26 4-chord medley where you can see how they are able to switch from one song to another in a matter of seconds.

The show opened last night with guest stars Tony Yusuff and Michael Lin who sang "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" together among other songs. There will be a surprise guest star tonight and tomorrow night as well.

If you're in town and are thinking about what to do this weekend, catch The Beastlings- LIVE!

9 Organic Skincare Online Stores in Malaysia

Lately, consumers have been more conscious about the food/ drinks, products that we consume and use. Choosing what to consume or use can be confusing as researchers say one thing and then change their verdict a few years down the road.

For example, there have been lots of contradicting research data about palm oil, coconut oil, corn oil, coffee, tea, wine, and vegetables. Of course, we know that sometimes research is biased towards a certain countries economic gain. A country whose economic growth depends on coffee beans will, of course, say that coffee is healthier to consume than tea and vice versa, wouldn't you think?

So how do we decide what's good for us? Naturally, it's best to just use products that our forefathers (or foremothers?) have been using without any health issues. So it's about going back to basics without the extra preservatives and chemicals. Eat the vegetables that are grown in your garden like how our great grandparents used to do. No land to gro…

The Hunt of for the Milky Way Sabah- Day 2 to 4 Ranau and Kundasang

Day 2- Ranau

So hubby and I survived the winter of Tambunan, and we had a simple breakfast of nasi lemak bungkus which was served with a bowl of soup at Tambunan Town (it's a Sabahan norm to have soup served at every meal, we discovered). The group said they were heading to the waterfall about 30 minutes away after breakfast then will check out and head to Sabah Tea Garden, Ranau (where do they get their energy???).

I said we would join them at the waterfall after freshening up at the hotel. Our hotel bed had other plans. It enveloped us and refused to let us go until noon so I meekly messaged Emma that we would join them at Sabah Tea Garden.

After we free-ed ourselves from the clutches of the bed, we made our way to Mahua Waterfall where we were greeted by green and hilly landscapes before reaching a fairly lonely road (really I think we only passed one car on the way there). After a lonely 20 - minute ride, we saw about 20 cars parked at the entrance which is a huge difference …
