When I heard that David Choi was performing live in Malaysia, I squeeed. Yes, that was my exact word. It didn't matter that I was 200 over miles or 300 over KM away. I was determined not to miss him. And it was well worth it. Thanks to some guardian angels, namely Wilee and Wilson, I had a fantastic night.
David Choi is an amazing talent. An American Korean, he rose to fame on YouTube with a special love song he composed one fine day. And it would seem that many shared his love and sense of humour as the video quickly became a favorite of many. Through the years, he had uploaded many original sound tracks as well as covers and even lending himself to the capable hands of many YouTube legends such as Wong Fu Productions, Ryan Higa and other funny greats.
Having been forced to learn musical instruments when he was young, I'm glad that he has accepted his true gift and decided to share it with the world like many other YouTubers out there. Sharing is caring right? Heck, even his dad is on you tube.
You can check him out HERE.
Students of UCSI, I salute you for climbing this everyday. May you be blessed with great health.
I got a T-Shirt! It was already sighed. I wonder of the ink is water proof....
The Calm (moments before the wave)
Someone actually named a wifi under the name FOR DAVID CHOI. That certainly made an impression on the performer. Who ever you are, know that you are awesome. UPDATE! Wifi provided by a Mr Daviestxj through his phone! His twitter HERE
Suki looking tres chic in her pink blazer, David strumming an audiences ukulele of which he later signed "David was here" and a talented young audience. She deserved it as she had probably played the song many times. You'll never know when you might need to perform right?
Got a smile out of him.
Here's a little endeavor for my lovely readers.
A clip of the interview done by our local Radio DJs
Some of us managed to have a short chat with him, mainly spoke of
- It wasn't honey which he liked on toast this morning, it was kaya, a Malaysian jam
- How he must come back again so we can stuff him with more food like Ramli burger
- How awesome he is live
- How thankful we were that he would actually come here
- Basically loads of gushing, but that could be just me.
Among other things he let slip that his next album would be less emo. But personally I think he could do no wrong in our book. Emo, smiley, non smily, tooting, we'll still appreciated him. With Nice Guys around him, he'll be in safe hands.
We felt bad keeping him away from his supper and bed so we left him in the safe hands on the Malaysian ground crew.
Once again, thank you David Choi for doing this epic tour and we hope to see you again soon, if not on You Tube.
Terima kasih banyak-banyak
