插班生, The Freshman Showcase


Situated along Temple Street, CrazyWorld Cafe is a cafe, a gallery, a stage, a retail boutique, a crazy world with a distinctive flavour of its own.

You might have walked past a few times before.
It's time to walk in and take a look.




Many celebrities such as Tay Kewei and Yuheng have done showcases at this special venue previously. I've never known what are Showcases until I did mine in January this year. A Showcase is an intimate and informal music performance where you may purchase tickets at an afforable price of less than $50 and be able to watch & interact with your favourite stars while they sing/perform up-close. These showcases usually last for about 1 to 2 hours and held in cafes where you may enjoy some drinks while enjoying live music. So far the prices of showcases I know of range between $10 - $30.



On 3rd Dec 2011, The Freshman or otherwise known as 插班生, did theirs. From what I know, this was not the first time they are having their showcase at CrazyWorld cafe and by far the response were all positive! You see more and more people turning up.

The Freshman is a duo female band made up of Chen Diya and Carrie Yeo from Project Superstar II. On September 2010 after 4 years of preparation and hard work, this talented duo released their debut album, Life Experiment 101.


Doing their showcase starting at 10pm for the first time considering a late hour, the response from the crowd was... yet another FULL HOUSE! (in fact the cafe overflowed and the latecomers had to stand up. It's normal when the crowd had to stand while watching showcases by the way.)

I've heard their originals a few times being played on radio station YES! 933. But listening to them singing Live for the first time was a pleasant experience; a showcase worth going back for. The theme for this showcase was music revoluion, where they perform songs which they felt are significant to a certain music era through a 10 year span. Songs like Da Er Wen by Tanya Chua, songs from May Day, Lin You Jia and of course, their originals!



This was the song they sang that day:




The song which I heard from Yes!933 several times.
The song is vibrant, motivating and bubbly; extremely nice!

You know what, like them.
