This is Paul. He's a member of the Tugu Drum Circle. The both of us are part of a theatre project which involves disabled teenagers, both mental and physical. We meet for 6 hours every Tuesday. This month, they're learning Capoeira, Costumes and Drumming. The project will run until March 2008 where they put on their own show. We are hoping to take them through everything that goes into a performance: dance, music, acting, writing, videography, photography and design (costumes and graphic). I'm taking them for acting and photography.

In this shot, Paul is drumming the urn to listen to it's sound vibration. He added it to the drums he brought along. The kids really love his drumming sessions. If you'd like to meet these talented individuals, please go over to my Flickr page. I've so far uploaded portrait shots taken while they were making their own head-dresses.

I bet the kids love it!

Re trhe QVB and Ipoh, I found this out on the Ipoh website:


Ipoh is now owned by GIC Real Estate pte Ltd through its Australian investment vehicle Reco Bay NSW.

GIC Real Estate pte Ltd is headquartered in Singapore, and is the real estate investment company of the Government of Singapore Investment Corporation which manages the foreign reserves of Singapore.

So I guess the QVB is really owned by the Singapore Govt now!

I'm a very bad boy. I overslept and missed the session today. I got a phone call saying how much I'm missed. Aww...

It's an amazing project. I've been drumming up some excitement since it began. Talking to the press, other people who might like to get involved and as always, looking for sponsorship.

And I bloody overslept, didn't I? I wonder what they're doing right now?
