Picking up the pieces.
I don’t know about you, but days after LKY’s passing, I’m still trying to pick up the pieces. I do not know LKY personally, but his death had left me with sorrow as deep as if he were my family. During the past week, everyone in my family was affected. Clothes were left unwashed and un-ironed. The floor was not swept. The letter box was left unopened. Food was bland and dry as Mom was in no mood to cook. All we wanted to do was to drop whatever we did and read the papers and have our eyes glued to the TV everyday to spend each moment remembering our great founding father. Without him, there wouldn’t be Singapore. Without our country, we wouldn’t even have a home.
As for me, my original plan was to officially release my new EP勇敢的淚 on my birthday, 29 March. But alas, it was the day of LKY’s state funeral, an event that meant more than anything in the world for us. It was a day spent in tears of mourning.
After his state funeral, my family continued to talk about him. But at the back of our minds we knew that it was time to pick up the pieces. Time to wash those dirty clothes piled up. Time to do the usual grocery shopping. Time to clear the back log of work. Time to move on. At this point, I struggled for some time to find where I had left off. Pick up my CDs which have been printed. Send that press release. Contact that partner. Launch my website. One by one, that to-do list was filled again as datelines resurfaced and stress levels increased.
So although still with a heavy heart, I would like to share with you the launch of my official artist website and EP. Digital distribution has been completed. The digital album is available for download in iTunes or here.
I have also made an exclusive partnership with Sunnyhills on a special Mother’s Day Gift Set available in their store at Raffles Hotel Arcade. The gift set contains the physical album CD 勇敢的淚and a Limited Edition I Love Mom Sunnyhills 2-piece pineapple cake set. Available now at $20 each. Great gift for mom, especially if she has a sweet tooth :)
