the debate is getting hot, let's chill and have some cool music from joanna wang, the latest singer-songwriter from the land of many talents, taiwan. joanna has just released her debut english album and judging from this free listening sample (what a cool marketing idea using embedded HTML for blogs!), she is gonna be the next hot thing.

i am gonna hunt this album down when i visit tiny dot this friday, and already some of my friends are asking me to buy for them as well...

note: you can sample the songs below

Dear Maggielurva;Since you are going to Singapore ,why dont you do this for us [Your fans]
1.listen to the all spectral set-up
2.Listen to the Wadia,Weiss or any other funny nane digital that we dont get in malaysia
You can ask Afong at Norman Audio to belanja you for the airticket and for makan.

You should consider a career in talent -scouting.
I get goosebums listening to hear from my cheapo computer speakers!!!
Forget abt NJ and LIsa ono she's better.Her command of english is superb too,something that 's always missing among chinese songbirds.
forget about what aboon said ,just buy us [your fan club]a cd each.Afoong can belanja us the cd instead of belanja you

eric and aboon,

i spoke to foong about the spectral cdp, he said spectral is particular about their products and it must be auditioned in an all-spectral setup and did he say the cdp cost a cool RM80K?

sure, i will drop by at norman adelphi and say hi to ivan (foong's boss) and tell him that i am the malaysian audiophile embassador.

i didn't know i have got fans, that's really flattering! what i dream to do in the future is to include free sample cds in av xpress ;-)

Of course you've got fans,lots of them.
I feel your blog is the most exciting thing that happened to M'sian Hi-Fi scene in a long time.
It's your passion and selflessness that I admire most.
Tell your wife not to be jealous.I am an old straight man..

hi rozario,

thanks for the nice words. i am trying to bridge the gap between audiophiles and music lovers and i am elated to see some positive results thru this blog.

oh, btw, i am still a swinging OLD bachelor! how else would you explain someone who occupies the entire living hall with his gigantic, zero-wife-approving-factor magneplanars?! ;-)

rozario said...

No wonder !!!
I was hoping I would send my wife over to talk to your wife for some counsellingg...

just came back last weekend. things in s'pore are very expensive - GST 7%, cab charges increased by 35% etc etc. it is very uneconomical to shop there using ringgit :-(
