Raya, The website and Future wedding plans.

  That's right I have finally completed a whole list of to do's. why is this such an achievement? well considering that getting back into top gear after a major holiday such as Hari Raya or Eid ul-Fitri takes great will and discipline. I was so tempted to just laze around and... eat. Oh my waste line, oh!

First and foremost, my fiancee and I have started planning for our wedding which would take place next year. To be frankly honest, I enjoyed it! I mean I guess guys are brainwashed into thinking that planning for your wedding is this torturous affair but nothing felt so right for me. I mean I guess my years in the world of entertainment and events made planning my wedding just a little easier because I knew where to look for certain things like decorations, tents, venues, etc. I guess the pain for other men come from a Bridezilla type fiancee... If that is the case I would like to thank my dearest Boo for not being such a Bridezilla and making the wedding planning process a dream. I mean I feel like I'm getting my dream wedding too! Ok... I realise how that sounds... oh heck bring on the tutu and pink glittered wand!

Thirdly, I have registered a domain name and bought hosting services for my band the velvet aces. I have also put together a team of people to help me build the website and soon it would be up and running. If your wondering the website is . It's currently under construction now so when you go there all you'll see is the bands cool logo and a short sincere, personally letter from me saying that the site is under construction. Yup as you can tell I am involved every step of the way and I am going to make the website as personal as possible, no air of "I'm a celebrity, get me outta here!" attitude.

What's next on my to do list? hmmmmm, let me see...I'm writing a musical...Shhhhhhhh it's our little secret :D

Logo for The Velvet Aces

  I Realised that the band needed a simpler logo to be used for our profile that we were planning to send out to event organizers and I had once again burned the midnight oil to produce a simpler logo.

If you were curious what the logo looks like now, feel free to star at it's wonder below.

A thank you to Angela and band website options :)

  I would like to start of this blog by saying thanks Angela for her comment on my previous post about how to solve my little Myspace background problem :)

Gotta love the internet and the people on it :)

I have yet to implement what she suggested doing which was to design a logo or design then tile it. This would solve the problem of the pixelated background effect the new Myspace profile is doing to my nicely designed background.

If your wondering what it's supposed to look like you can log on to my band's twitter page at

or you can view it here hehehehe :D

Further more I'm currently looking for away to build my band website. At the moment I'm considering two options which was to purchase the domain name, hosting and use wordpress to build my website.

My second option is to go on and create my band website. I've been thinking about this for over a week now and the reason being that is an all in one website creater for bands. It has a merchandising store where people can buy your music and merchadises via credit card or paypal, a free domain name and hosting, it allows you to make custom e-mail addresses, and it gives a billion and one things to manage your fanbase. The catch is that you gotta pay a monthly subscription of $9 to $19, which is roughly RM50 to RM60 a month.

Alot to consider. Maybe I'll try bandzoogle's 30 day trial and let you guys know :D

P.s. Thanks again Angela :) I'll post up my progress :)

and feel free to like my band page on facebook :D
