All About Eve Japan Fund Raising Campaign- A Success!
On 16th April 2011, 7 local bands performed at All About Eve bar to help raised funds in attempt to help Japan.
That's us still rehearsing at the smoking corner less than 1hr away from the start of the performance.
There were students from a local Music School,
Here are their singing teachers who performs at All About Eve Bar every Thursday night at 10pm.
Some were jamming buddies,
G.L.O.W, who performs at All About Eve Bar every Wednesday at 10pm.
while others were simply KTV kakis who love music and kena 'tikan' to sing on stage for us.
When I first proposed the idea to the bosses of All About Eve Bar that I'd like to have a fund-raising performance, they were so keen that they even offered to liaise with the other bands and sell their beverages to help raise more funds.
I invited Alex, a singer who has won several local song contests, to sing on stage with me.
On top of that, I invited our famous Yongwei, to beat the cajon for the band which he immediately said 'yes'.
We practiced & gave our best shot. Even though I was down with tonsillitis, I wouldn't let my illness get in the way for Charity.
That's me singing "Tomorrow Will be Better" with another band,'Beyond Repair'.
That's 'Beyond Repair' and I on stage. Beyond Repair performs at All About Eve bar every Tuesday at 10pm.
The amount we raise for the night?
Impressive I'll say, for a little bar tucked at a corner of Arab Street where not many people knows.
Yongwei donated his last $2 into the box.
As WTH as he is, he has a heart of gold too.

Andy, a passionate photographer, who came down and helped us snap photos at the event. He was there specially to support the fund raising! Thank you!
Thank you to each and every kind soul who made this Charity Event a success- from the musicians, to the bands, to the guests who came down to support and to the bosses of All About Eve Bar, Won and Jennifer, who fully supported this proposal of mine and helped to plan everything.
PEOPLE, YOU ARE ALL SO LOVED.
