Hey hey hey, it’s been a week without this column. I hope you’re not living under a rock all of a sudden. Well, if you are then fret not because I’m back and ready to fill you in on all the best things that happened in the SEA recently.


According to their website, the twice yearly Lakme Fashion Week “has been conceived and created with a vision to ‘Redefine the future of fashion and integrate India into the global fashion world.'”

This year, they held their first ever North East India model auditions, and as Buzzfeed reported – it was spectacular.

Congratulations to Jahnabi Deori and Suzanne Baker, who will definitely be making their mark at the Lakme Fashion Week this year.

Sheila Majid is Malaysia’s singer sweetheart, winning hearts with her debut album Dimensi Baru in 1985, she’s dubbed as the Queen of Jazz in Malaysia.

In a recent interview with Astro Awani, Majid expressed her concern and opinion of the current state of the Malaysian music industry, stating (in bahasa Malaysia) that the masses need to be aware of the importance of the longevity of a musician’s career, saying we cannot say we love an artiste but download their music illegally and demand free concerts.

Respect and support from fans is needed in order for musicians to continue their career and create better music.

What do you think about the Queen of Jazz’s take on the industry? You can read the full report here on Astro Awani’s website.
