It has been a while since our band “No Eye Candy” has performed live. And we are delighted to be invited to jam at Bali Culture @ Orientus (click here for their website), just when we were wondering if our band manager Selrol is still on top of the game …
Our guitarist Jason has suggested that we shall have a rehearsal gig first, to get acquainted with the environment, before calling in the our troop of supporters. I am not sure about Jason’s side. Quite honestly, I only have my sister, my sister, and my sister. That is if she can have an evening off from taking care of my niece.
Bali Culture @ Orientus is near Jalan Kayu, next to the highway TPE exit, and near to Seletar Camp. Out of nowhere and there you are, an indoor restaurant and an outdoor alfresco area next to a swimming pool. Football fans would love this place. Flat panel televisions with live broadcast. Good ambiance both indoor and outdoor. You can check out their menus on their website. We had a cheese fondue for sharing as starter and a chocolate fondue for dessert. For main course, I had a nasi goreng. I enjoy the food and happy to visit again. Looking back, I could have ordered the vegetarian pasta. It didn’t come across my mind that I could find vegatarian food there. Now I know.
On the same evening, their band “Pick-up Band” was playing after our performance. The guest drummer is only 9 years old (I reckon)! And boy, he can drum. Jaw dropping. I mean, he can really drum, like real. When we first stepped into the restaurant, Jason mentioned that we should recruit the little boy as our drummer. Now I know why. And the rest of the musicians and guests had so much fun jamming on stage, rotating their roles (now you know why the band is so named). During their performance, our bassist Cynthia said to me, “I can imagine myself hanging out in here”.
A big thumb-up to Selrol for arranging this. Also thanks to Bali Culture for having us. You guys are insanely supportive. And to my avid readers, I will put up a note here once we get a confirmation on our next slot.
PS. To our drummer Wieke who is still in Middle East: We miss you and wish you were here!
