He has written down a letter to all of his colleagues, friends and MY FM as he bids farewell.
 
            “飞得久了,其实也不太在意要再飞多高多远。这社会充斥着把握机会的讯息,天罗地网地告诉每一个人不能累,不能错过,不能平凡。累就这么样变成了一种原罪。

            你好,我是Royce陈志康。我决定辞职了,离开我11年的电台节目和工作岗位。

            不是找不到生活,不是公司对我不好,不是同事间的政治,不是我要跳槽,是我累了。11年后背着这小小成就离开,对我而言并不容易。可是人生真的没有多少个十年,就当是中学毕业了,我是时候申请大学了。接下来的生活并没有什么具体打算,就老老实实地做自己,经营自己的人生,邂逅那不期而遇的惊喜!

            感谢公司,同事,战友这11年里成就了我,包容了我。
            感谢你11年里让我陪你下班回家。
            感谢自己没有忘记最初的自己和自己的价值。

            亲手写下道别信,希望这是一个更有温度和愉悦的再见。
            Royce out! (mic drop!)”


Royce陈志康 stated that the main reason for his farewell is not due to issues with colleagues or the company. He just feels like taking a break. Since 2006, he started working as a full time radio announcer in MY FM. From then onwards, he has been working for the past 11 years straight.

MY FMChannelon 24th February 2017 (Friday) 7-8pm will be his last hour working in MY FM before he leaves. In conjunction with that, the session will have an FB LIVE too. Do stay tuned to that if you like Royce’s radio announcing!

[Coverage] “Laugh Die You The Mob” @ Genting International Showroom



Kuala Lumpur, January 2017 – Resorts World Genting in collaboration with Popcorn Studio Sdn Bhd brought us “Laugh Die You The Mob” comedy show at the Genting International Showroom a few days ago. Our team from wljack.com has been given an opportunity to watch the show and laugh out loud!

(Check out our previous coverage on the press conference here: http://www.wljack.com/2017/01/press-conference-laugh-die-you-mob.html )

“Laugh Die You The Mob”
Venue: Genting International Showroom
Date: 11th February 2017
Time: 7.30pm

 “Laugh Die You The Mob” Is A Comedy Show Plus Concert!
The title itself might suggest that it is a pure comedy show. The show turned out to be a concert too! The event kicked off with Michael Leaner’s vibrant performance. His performance hyped up the atmosphere prior to the start of the comedy. Besides Michael Leaner, the show also sees Natalia Ng who also spiced up the show with her mesmerizing singing and her first attempt in performing Chinese Song LIVE.




Mark Lee, Rib-Tickling And Interactive Performance!
Right after the performances of the musicians, the show welcomed the appearance of Mark Lee, a personality who is well known to be funny both on-screen and off-screen. His performance was mainly more on interaction with the audiences as it involved a few games with the selected audiences on-stage. It was quite fun to see the way he introduced laughter to the audiences with the impromptu conversation between him and the rest of the sporting audiences who were selected to go on stage. The muscle man game, learn English with Mr Mark Lee and etc are really memorable.



The true essence of his comedy was his combination of his broken Singlish with in-line blending of some Hokkien and Mandarin.

In addition, Mark Lee also proved that he could be a “Sin-Ger” too as he performed a singing of Teresa Teng’s famous song as well as a Chinese New Year song from his latest movie Fortune Handbook.



God Of Prosperity (Choi San) also made an appearance giving away Mandarin Orange during his CNY song performance.

Kuah Jenhan Malaysian Jokes Hit The Laughing Spot!
On the other hand, another main attention of the night, Kuah Jenhan is without a doubt one of the best comedians in Malaysia. His jokes revolved primarily around Malaysian related jokes. The way he presented the jokes was smooth and slick. Kudos, Kuah Jenhan, you are really a Johan in terms of standup comedy.



Jonathan Atherton Multi-Lingual Ang Mor!
Although being an Australian guy, Jonathan Atherton is really talented in mastering multiple language. The way he brewed up his jokes of rapid-firing phrases in a variety of languages and dialects is brilliant.  



Overall, it was an enjoyable show and I hope that there will be more Laugh Die You shows again in the future. #siuseilei

Well done to all of the performers of the show! #siuseilei

Last but not least, million thanks to Resort World Genting for giving our website a chance to do a coverage on the event.

[Upcoming Event] SERENADE: THE MPYO PERFORMS CLASSICAL MASTERPIECES AT DEWAN FILHARMONIK PETRONAS!

[Upcoming Event]  SERENADE: THE MPYO PERFORMS CLASSICAL MASTERPIECES AT DEWAN FILHARMONIK PETRONAS!



Kuala Lumpur, February 2017- Let’s get a taste of the classical masterpieces this weekend as The Malaysian Philharmonic Youth Orchestra (MPYO) continues to bring its youthful enthusiasm through its music in its upcoming concert on Sunday, 12 February 2017 at 3.00 pm at Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS (DFP).

SERENADE
Date: 12th February 2017
Time: 3pm
Venue: Dewan Filharmonik Petronas (DFP)

the MPYO is one of Malaysia’s youngest orchestras that was officially launched on 13 January 2006 with an objective to encourage and nurture local young musicians’ passion and appreciation of all genres of symphonic music.

As a ‘stage for young talent’, each section of the orchestra receives professional coaching from the more senior Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) musicians. Besides major cities in Malaysia, the MPYO has brought the beauty of its music to audiences in Singapore and Brisbane, Australia.



Under the baton of Naohisa Furusawa, the ensemble of talented musicians will open the concert with the bright and breezy Fanfare to La Peri composed by Frenchman Paul Dukas in 1912. It is a symphonic poem with a choreographic interpretation. The MPO performed this work in November 2016. This work offers only a teaser for the musical richness to be found in this score through the brief but splendid brass fanfare.



Then comes Dvořák’s melodic invention, Serenade in D minor, one of his sunniest creations, with its premiere given in Prague in 1878. Also included in the repertoire list for the afternoon are Tournier’s Prelude for Harp Duets Nos. 1 and 2, and Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings in C major. The latter is a thoroughly delightful work of four contrasting movements of concise structure. Its first public performance was given in 1881 in St. Petersburg to an appreciative audience. The opening movement is like a homage to Mozart while the second movement has the Viennese waltz element. The third is a romantic interlude while the finale has a transcription of a Moscow folk song.

Beguile in the brilliant musicianship of our very own MPYO, only at DFP!

[Performing Arts] Amorous Delight @ The Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (klpac), Pentas 1 (15-19 March 2017)

[Performing Arts] Amorous Delight @ The Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (klpac), Pentas 1 (15-19 March 2017)



Kuala Lumpur, February 2017 - Amorous Delight which premiered in Malaysia on 20 July, 2016 was one of Sutra’s most irresistible productions last year. In view of the success, Sutra Foundation endeavours to stage Amorous Delight for a second season at the KL Performing Arts Centre (KLPAC) as part of its fundraising efforts for 2017.

The restaging this time is even more exciting with the added creative input of Dato’ Seri Bernard Chandran, Malaysia’s fashion mogul and designer to the region’s celebrities, royalty and high society mavens, who will be giving the production an alluring new look in terms of its costume design.  Dato’ Seri Bernard has previously designed for Sutra’s ‘L’Apres midi D’un Faune’, a work which Datuk Ramli Ibrahim performed, accompanied by the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, in 2014.

Amorous Delight
Date: 15-19 March 2017
TIME
7.30pm (15th of March – Gala Night)
8.30pm (16th – 19th of March)

Venue: The Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (klpac), Pentas 1
Sentul Park, Jalan Strachan,Off Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah, 51100, Kuala Lumpur

Ticketing Price:
15th March 2017 (Wed) : Premium RM 100, Standard RM 43

16th -19th March 2017 (Thur – Sun) : Premium RM 63, Standard RM 43

Amorous Delight is set to blaze a different path from Sutra’s previous and equally successful production of GANJAM, performed at the beginning of 2016. If GANJAM was spectacular with its exuberant folk energy, the second staging of Amorous Delight will be stunning in the way subtle eroticism, inspired by palm leaf illustrations, come to life as a dance-theatre work of art.

Amorous Delight, a contemporary odissi production with dance composition and artistic direction by Meera Das and Ramli Ibrahim, performed by Sutra Dancers, took its inspiration from the ninth-century Amarushataka, a Sanskrit anthology of hundred short verses, all concerned with sringara rasa, the erotic sentiment of love.


The Amarushataka had been illustrated by Indian chitrakar (traditional painters) over centuries from different parts of India. The visual images rendered in palm-leaf (pothi) of the Sharanakula master (his name was never known) of Nayagarh district, Odisha, were some of the most beautiful and artistic of these rare illustrations.

When Ramli Ibrahim was first presented with the publication Amorous Delight published by Museum Rietberg (Zurich), collaboratively written by Dr Eberhard Fischer and Dr Dinanath Pathy, Ramli was struck by the magnificent palm leaf manuscript illustrations of the Sharanakula master. He saw its potential as a lyrical dance production. When he mentioned this to the late Dr Dinanath Pathy, the latter wholeheartedly agreed. That was more than ten years ago.

What emerges from this collaboration is a thoroughly engaging contemporary dance-theatre production, which positively takes in the integration of several creative points of embarkation from odissi, chitrakar of palmleaf (traditional painting) tradition, contemporary visual art, lighting design, to an irresistible commissioned music. The lighting design by Sivarajah Natarajan compliments Pathy’s design inviting the audience to a ravishing visual feast of the highest order.



Once again Sutra demonstrated its capability to transcend the traditional seamlessly to venture into the realm of contemporary, in a borderless world where ‘modernity’ is informed by, and forms a continuum of, traditional techniques and sensibilities.  True to the spirit of creativity, Amorous Delight points to a creative eclectic future while reflecting (but not absconding from) the past. 

The intimate, intense and timeless visions of love have continually inspired painters to express themselves in literature, visual and performing arts since ancient times. With the development of new ideas and luscious lyrical interpretation, Sutra’s second season of Amorous Delight is set to transform and soar further to new height.
