3 mics & 6 friends were all it takes...

I can't really recall when was the last time I allow my singing be heard. Singing & me are like day & night. My cup of tea? Not at all... At any karaoke session I would merely be a tentative listener or an audience, the supportive one :-)

There are exceptions however... ;-) If the day & night once in awhile have to give way to the eclipse, the singing & me need to once in a blue moon make way to my not so melodious voice! With a wonderful company as a booster, this voice could sure go farrrrr.... hehehe!

Attended a get together last weekend. My intention there was more for the company & the foods of course. To sing was the last in my list. I was kind of expecting for the others to entertain me with their singing whilst I catch up with each other & play the photographer ;-)

Only 6 turned up. None with a spouse nor kids. We have known each other for ages & there was really nothing under the sun that could make me feel embarrassed with this crowd. My unmelodic talent could do no harm...

My usual remark, "Well... I'm not singing." didn't really work with them. Not that they were pushy but they made the room so comfortable & relaxed that your hand became magnetised to the mic.

I sang... Opened up my jaw, articulated the words on the screen accordingly to the tune & enjoying every moment of it! Mind you, the tune not necessarily needed to be in rhythm & that was the beauty in it. Hahaha! Loved it! It was indeed a therapy....

So from today onwards, whenever I decide to join for a round or two of this sing-along escapade, I will rephrase my regular statement to - "Give me the mic, I'm singing!" Woohoo... how 'bout that? ;-D

Here are some of the photos. Thanks to a dear friend for her consent allowing me to share a few taken frm her FB. And to you-know-who-you-were, I had an incredible time. We got to do this more often!!

Now, that was the getting used to the feel of holding a mic session... hehehe!


Still the same session... the warming up ;-D


These girls were superb!


This one was mem pimpin'.... (not only in FB, you are in my blog too now... lupakan lah hasrat nak berpolitik...) Hahaha!


Standing up now & di pimpin' by a pe pimpin'... :-)


The standing allowed us to express more of the hidden feelings.


Tu dia... lontaran suara!!


To regenarate & rejuvenate, a great company was all it takes....


& let's not forget the foods as well ;-)

Hi Chahya,

You know, deep inside I knew that if she were around, she'd be the first to wait for us at RB. She had always looked forward for a get together like that. We still miss her & I still cannot get over the sorrow whenever I hop over to her blog & FB.

Al-Fatihah...

Ja,

Sama lah kita....I pun takkan pegang mic at Karaoke sessions. But, I see that on your part - you have overcome that! Hehehe! Well done!

I selalunya akan jerit-jerit join when it's a "sing-a-long-beramai-ramai" type of songs, Bila orang bagi mic - secara automatic tak leh nyanyi. Hahaha!

But yeah - great stress reliever :)
