Janet Lee & WVC Trio+1
Cabaret go-to girl, theatre thespian, vocalist – Janet Lee is an all-round entertainer and multi-performer. At her best, she channels and covers Shanghai jazz songbirds of the past – Bai Guang, Yao Lee and Zhou Xuan – with her brand of brooding, playful and wicked ’20s to ’50s Mandarin music mingled with Hollywood songbook show tunes, invoking a devil-may-care decadence. Harkening back to the dance halls of yesteryears, Janet Lee will perform with WVC Trio+1, made up of composer and pianist Tay Cher Siang, AJ on bass, KJ Wong on drums, and saxophonist Julian Chan.

Life according to Shelah
A red lipstick is… red? It’s not pink, is it? Age is… appropriate. Always wear… clothes. Especially if you’re a lawyer on a mountain. As you go through life you’ll see… better if you’re not glued to your phone. Dating in KL is… a foreign concept. I mean, who even knows what a date is nowadays? It’s all about apps, how many metres away you are and dirty messy business (I mean sex!). Freedom of choice is… no longer viable. Don’t ask, don’t talk. For awhile it was also ‘don’t wear shorts, must wear sarong’. And not even a nice sarong! If you’re going to impose your narrow medieval thoughts on me, the very least you could do is provide me with a pretty piece of sarong. I’m not going to cover myself up with the crap you’re giving me. Genius is… sorry, what was the question? Oh, genius is when a light bulb suddenly appears above your head and you wonder where the ‘dimmer’ switch is. Growing up is… kind of fun. Making decisions not based on who has the best score on Candy Crush. Seriously people, what is this manic devotion/ addiction to the game? Never mind that the game is years old, I’m still getting requests to play it. Play other games please. For example, Monopoly, the game of buying and building an empire with other people’s money. You’ll find yourself asking at every turn, ‘Mana money tu?’ Harder, faster, stronger but… how will you have enough time to breathe? No point rushing to a destination when you don’t even know where you’re going. Every now and then slow down, watch w
