LOUNGELICIOUS – UPDATE

Loungelicious @ the g Lounge!

This Saturday night is our monthly Loungelicious party at the g Lounge.

I’m SUPER proud to announce that KoKo from Paris will be our guest percussionist for the evening.

If you heard him perform at Tapa & Friends last weekend then you know what an amazing musician he is.

KoKo from Paris

Also joining us will be DJ Roberto Mirto. Since the first time I heard him DJing (less than a month ago) Roberto has consistently wowed me with his incredible selection of music and I can’t wait to hear him DJ again on Saturday.

We’ve got 2 amazing guest performers this Saturday so don’t miss out!

VINTAGE VERSACE

Versus by Versace, circa 1990

I received a lot of emails asking me about the shirt I wore for the last SPLASH! event at the g Hotel.

It was Valentine’s Day, so I brought out the shirt that was most full of love from the psychadelic depths of my multi-colored wardrobe, hahaha.

The shirt is from the Spring 1990 collection from Versus by Gianni Versace, which I bought at the Versus boutique at Pedder Building in Central, Hong Kong (I think it’s Shanghai Tang now)

That whole collection featured a lot of Warholic imagery, one of the most famous being the multi-colored Marilyn Monroe print that is now legendary.

Versus was a “younger” collection by Versace, catering to a younger crowd and was an amazing line back in the day.

19 years later, the shirt still looks crazy fresh and not dated one bit – testimony to the incredible skill and talent of one of my all-time favorite designers.

SPLASH! #2 REPORT (PART 1)

SPLASH!#2 @ g Hotel, Penang, Malaysia

The second ever SPLASH! party took place on Valentine’s Day this year and was probably one of the craziest parties we’ve done so far at the g Hotel.

It was a little slow to start since everyone was stuck in the horrendous traffic jam on Gurney Drive but once things got underway they didn’t stop till we pulled the plug.

As usual, the party had a good crowd consisting of hotel guests, beautiful Penangites and some hardcore party animals who came all the way from Kuala Lumpur (wassup Shahizan!)

Our special guest DJ Roberto Mirto laid down some incredibly sexy lounge tunes during the earlier hours and I know some people couldn’t get enough of his music so we coaxed him back onto the decks for the last set. Roberto has a crazy, crazy selection of lounge music and if you missed his performance at SPLASH!, make sure you don’t miss Loungelicious this Saturday at the g Lounge.

It was nice to see everyone getting wet and wild by the night’s end and I’m sure you can tell what sort of shit went down from the pictures!

MY FAVORITE SONG EVER

I’ve been a fan of Depeche Mode since I was 10, and this is my all time favorite DM song.

Romantic yet a little bit sick and twisted … this clip is from 1984 when Martin Gore performed Somebody on the Whistle Test TV show. On the piano is Alan Wilder, who was DM’s keyboardist from 1982-1995.

My favorite song everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
