Lea Salonga at Malaysia, May 22-23

From May 21-24, I will be in Malaysia to play 3rd keyboard for Lea Salonga. It will be my first time to visit that country. I’m very excited to be playing for Lea again, and looking forward to the Malaysian food that a lot of my friends have raved about. I’m also looking forward to hanging out with the rest of the band, most of whom are also my colleagues at FILharmoniKA.
