A night to remember and an excellent meal

Last Saturday evening, I went to support my son, Nicholas’ band, ROSEVELT at the Global battle of the bands competition.  He is the vocalist in the band.  


The band was formed 2 years ago.  They are currently recording their first full album and they hope to launch it by this year.  All the songs were originals composed and arranged by Nick and guitarist, Josh.  I am so glad to announce that they were selected to compete in the National finals. I wish they will be selected as the National Champion and go on to represent Malaysia to compete in the Global Championship.

I would like to share with you ROSEVELT's first music video:

Title of the song: Madicine 
Vocalist : Nick Davis

While I was waiting for the opening of the event, the drummer of the band introduced me to this little brasserie called D’Empire and I had an awesome meal there. I enjoyed the meal so much that I am still thinking about it today.  They are so delicious and I will definitely return with my Quay Lo to try other dishes in their menu. The prices are fair and affordable. For the locals, if you want to check this restaurant out, it is in SOHO KL.

  5. Wow! Didn't know your son is a Rock star! :-P
    I used to work in Music entertainment line back in Malaysia, at that time our Music companies like Warner Music and EMI Music use to invest in discovering talented local bands and singers. However, with the pirate market hit in their sales affected very badly and many of them had shrinked their investment in Malaysia. I was made redundant too at that time.

  11. I was listening to the music video when my 16 year old son overheard what I was listening to, he asked who is that. I said why, he said, they sound pretty good, I like it. There you have it, the endorsement of a teenager, I don't think it gets better than that. What a talented son you have! I wish his band all the luck!

    Rhonda: I will pass on to Nick what your son said about their music. I am sure he will be happy to know that. Please ask him if he would like a copy of Rosevelt's mini album. If he does, I can mail him a CD. A gift from me:D

  18. Seriously awesome. I liked the video too.
    I want that truffle. I've tried escargot once but I sorta gulped it down so I wouldn't have to taste it too much.
