A colleague of mine casually asked me to join them to a live jazz performance in KL on the eve of Valentine's Day. Thinking that it will not be so nice to turn him down and also, it was nice of him to even ask me as I am still new there, I said yes.
I've never been to a Jazz performance, often thinking that it's just not my thing. But I could say that I actually enjoyed the night and the music in the end of the night. The beginning of it was a little okay for me, as I'm still not really used to the music,but after sitting for almost half an hour, I started to enjoy it very much, of course with the beers and the stories from the 2 girls. It has been awhile since I've laughed so hard. Thanks for inviting me. =)
The jazz nite was actually held in No Black Tie somewhere near Jalan Ceylon. It was a small little place yet cozy and really would make a great place to bring your date to. Too bad, my phone was out of battery and I cant take any pictures. will be waiting for some pics from my colleague. There were only 4 men, the pianist - Micheal V, the double bass guy - who looked like some pakcik that sells Ramli burger (no kidding!). he was wearing a worn out shirt and was sweating alot, hahaha, the sexy-phone man and the last but not the least, also, the most good looking guy of the nite, goes to the drummer. Boy, he is cute. and young too!
