A long and close friend of Lim Kok Wing, Datuk Paddy Bowie had the honors to be open the event. Her speech was delightful and casual, in which she humorously mentioned that she did not know what ‘Kok Wing‘ meant in Chinese, but the word ‘Wing‘ did definitely suit Lim Kok Wing as he did spread his wings to fly and excel in his career.

When we attended the Undergroundo.tv launch event at Ruums, we were given a copy of melodica’s demo CD.
They were the first band performing (when I heard them outside, I thought they were Deja Voodoo Spells) for that event and the guitarist’s solos were fluidly fast and melodically (lol, pun intended) good. I think they performed all 3 songs which were on the free demo CD.
