Renew Summer.

My 100th post at last!!
I don't write much it seemed since I've been blogging for 3 years now but this is only the 100th post. ^^
Anyway, today I'm going to introduce to you my new band, Renew Summer!!

So what do you think of the name?? To be honest, that name came to us just like that. We tried so hard for few weeks to find the most suitable name for our group but it was as hard as sitting for examination. Then on a Sunday night, it came to us in a way we could never expected. :)

This group was founded accidentally. Ahahahaha the story goes like this, I was asked to perform for an event in my institute. I don't know why but I had the feeling that that was going to be my last performance in here. So I decided to do something special, something out of the ordinary, something unforgettable. Too bad I couldn't find one. On Sunday, a week before the event, like usual me and my church member played some church songs, doing a new cover for each of the church songs. Then the idea came to me, why don't I made an acoustic cover of a song that I like? So after church that night, I go to my room and search for some songs that I'm quite familiar to and picked some songs. Then took my guitar and start searching for the chords. Still, I felt unsatisfied with it and again think of what should I do for my performance?

Then Jared crossed my mind.

He is my junior and my church member too. He is very good with music instruments. So I met him on Monday. I proposed the idea to him and he agreed so we looked for a song to be performed. We picked 'Jar of Hearts' by Christina Perry. Since he hadn't heard of that song before, so we started our practice on Tuesday. Then while practicing, we knew that something was missing. Suddenly he came up with an idea that we need one more person to complete the song. So we called Dominic.

Dominic is really good with acoustic guitar. He usually plays for our CF's gathering. And the combination of us three seemed amazing!! (puji diri sendiri pula.....) ahahahaha

Okay, that's me. ^^

The name of our group came later, after the performance. Funny, isn't it? That Friday when we performed, we don't know what name should we give so at last we asked them to just say out our name. Later that night, the Director of Jabatan Kebudayaan told us that he was interested to seeing us again so he invited us for another event outside. That moment, we knew we need a name for our group. So that coming Sunday, as I said earlier, we found that name -- or rather that name found us. There we go, Renew Summer. :)
