Ya! for Yaya

This talented young singer/composer is my niece Puteri Suraya, whose father is the eldest among our siblings.

Known in the indie music circle as Yaya, this lanky young lady fronts Static Emily, an indie group she started with like-minded friends some years back.

To my knowledge, they have not cut any album yet, but have been performing live at functions and in clubs, and have appeared on TV.

Yaya performs in between studies; she holds a diploma in communications and is currently pursuing a degree in a local university.

She seems to be able to manage her time a-okay and is doing pretty well in both studies and music. Attagirl, go Yaya go....!

Kama, Talent is good but with better academic education one's talent would be a better assect for the future. So to me whatever it is, one must still pursue better education. It is knowledge that made one better than the others.

Have a nice day.

Ezza - tu anak bongsu juga, zah. pemata hati mak ayahnya.

Pak Idrus - indeed. that's why she is still in university and music remains a hobby.

I love it that youngsters nowdays are very talented despite a suppressing environment. Parents play such a big role in allowing creativity flourish - be it music, writing, acting etc.
