Anjung Warisan – Angklung performance

January 13th, 2014

This is a dated video, taken in 2013 at Restoran Anjung Warisan in Johor Bahru.

This restaurant has seen better days. It was quite famous years ago due to its tree-top dining feature, where diners can choose between typical tables with chairs to sit, or on the floor, or above the tree settings.

During my recent visit, I discovered they they have live musical performances done with the Angklung, by some teenagers. The boy in the following video is only 13 years old in 2013.

While the Angklung is a traditional musical instrument, the songs they played with it are current, making it an enjoyable environment for the diners.

Malaysian Singer Yuna with Owl City – The Croods Soundtrack – Shine Your Way

March 18th, 2013

Yuna, a popular Malaysian singer has gone international!
Ok, she went international since 2011, with her debut album named Decorate but I didn’t pay attention to it.
Now that she partners with Owl City (remember Good Time and Fireflies?), so this is BIG news.

Owl City & Yuna – Shine Your Way
Shine Your Way is not her first, but second song from a motion picture soundtrack album. Her unique voice makes the song shine, don’t you think?

Check out some of the videos related to Yuna:

Lyrics
Give me a second I
I need to get my story straight
My friends are in the bathroom
getting higher than the Empire State
my lover she’s waiting for me
just across the bar
My seats been taken by some sunglasses
asking ’bout a scar
and I know I gave it to you months ago
I know you’re trying to forget
but between the drinks and subtle things
the holes in my apologies
you know I’m trying hard to take it back
so if by the time the bar closes
and you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home
Tonight
We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter
than the sun
Tonight
we are young
so let’s set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
than the sun

Now I know that I’m not
all that you got
I guess that I
I just thought maybe we could
find new ways to fall apart
But our friends are back
So let’s raise a toast
Cause I found someone to carry me home

Tonight
We are young
So let’s the set the world on fire
we can burn brighter than the sun
Tonight
We are young
so let’s set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
than the sun

Carry me home tonight
Just carry me home tonight
Carry me home tonight
Just carry me home tonight

The world is on my side
I have no reason to run
So will someone come and carry me home tonight

The angels never arrived
but I can hear the choir
so will someone come and
carry me home

Tonight
We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
than the sun
Tonight
We are young
so let’s set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
than the sun

So if by the time the bar closes
and you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home tonight
