That's why it came as a surprise that after grauduation that I started taking part in karaoke competitions & I realised I could SING! At that time I was holding a full time job in a bank.
The victories in the contests opened me up to various opportunities to perform. One thing led to another and I found myself soon becoming a regular Event Performer, a vocation that is rather unheard of most to the people I know.
Like I mentioned in my earlier post, as soon as I made enough money and was certain I could carve a niche, I invested in my first profile photos.
MING & MOVEMENTS
I won the "Rollin' Good Times" contest which was feaured on TV using this name, and that explains why it was easy for me to carry on with it, til later I 'ditched' the 'dancer' ideas (which were always changing & so hard to coordinate) and carried out the performances on my own. So after that, no more "movements", only "Ming"
At that time, I also had another act, combining with this then 9-year old girl called "Aqilah". She too won many singing contests, albeit at a much more tender age. My sis will remember her as we sang at her wedding. When Aqilah grew a bit older and got busy with her studies, we split. I wonder where and what is she doing now.
MING & AQILAH
We had quite many gigs together. In fact about a year after we split, some companies were still requesting for this act! Aqilah, I wish we can meet again someday
