Bringing the community together

To everybody that are interested to participate in the Lompat Hip Hop event for the KL Krash Pad home down in chowkit, please feel free to get in touch with us at  and we’ll let you know how you can get involved . The first round of events will be held this Sunday from 5-7 at the Nur Salam home.We will be having a mini concert for the kids, held by our local artists..
Our objective for hosting such an event is to bring the people together and unite all the kids that don’t come from safe homes like ours. Some of them are orphans, children who come from abusive backgrounds, most of them are stateless – illegal immigrants born in Malaysia with no passport or id, which doesn’t allow them to go to school to learn…KL Krash Pad is the safe location for these kids who can learn and participate in activities that we do. Basically, we want to pull them out of wandering in the streets and turn to positive activities instead. We hope to somehow be part of their lives and spark the interest for them to excel in arts. That is our mission.
The Lompat Hip Hop is followed by a number of workshops to teach the kids the elements of hip hop and to see this as a positive way of life. If you’re interested to find out more. Get in touch with The MoveMint and we will fill you in on the details.  
If you know anyone that wants to volunteer and teach them Maths, Science, Geography, English. Do let us know. We would appreciate everyone’s contribution to help our community.
Thanks for reading and hope you have a great day ahead!
Love, Nadhira

Interview – Upcoming singing starlet Nadhira

Rising star Nadhira seems to be on a roll! The songstress has a No.1 hit single in Malaysia AND wowed audiences in Canada.

You just returned from a promotional trip to Canada. How was the response there?
It was very good! It was very positive. People were very supportive of my music. As an artiste, they look up to you. They think you’ve very creative.

Why Canada? How did the trip come about?
My manager hooked me up with a lot of shows there because my release was coming out. We were just planning to tour there. I had gone into the studio and I recorded some stuff and we thought, “hey let’s do something, let’s do a little tour.” So, we decided to go to Canada.

You did quite a lot of shows there.
Yeah, about six shows in three cities. The ExploreASIAN festival at the University of British Columbia where they had a day dedicated to Asians. It was so much fun. I met a lot of Malaysians and Singaporeans as well. I met a lot of Malaysians who don’t know much about Malaysia. They’ve never been here. So that was kind of strange. They were asking me a lot of questions about Malaysia.

How does performing in Canada compare to performing in Malaysia?
The people there (Canada) are very supportive of music. They’re always supportive of anyone’s music. In Malaysia, it’s good but there’s a smaller crowd that listens to your music. Not everyone can accept your music.

So Canada first, where else next?
I’m hoping around Asia first, maybe Japan or China soon.

China sounds fun. So will you record a song in Chinese then?
[laughs] If I can! That would be funny!

We were surprised to learn that you used to be a metal singer! How did you go from hardcore music into the groovy and sensual style that you’ve adopted now?
Not so much a metal singer but more of a singer in a metal band. Singing is singing, right. The type of music that you listen to changes from time to time. I’ve always listened to R&B as well but I love Rock. So at that time I was listening to a lot of rock and singing whenever I can with rock bands. Whereas now, I listen to a lot of pop and R&B type of music.

Who influences your sound?
I grew up listening to a lot of Mariah Carey. For R&B – Aaliyah during her days.

Your single ‘Do It Again’ reached No.1 on What’s something you’d keep doing over and over and over again, aside from your music?
I’d travel! I’d go on my whole life and go places, just exploring new places.

Your album is available for purchase at Wondermilk Cafe. You must eat a lot of cupcakes, huh, for them to start selling your CD...
Yeah, I love cupcakes!

If you hadn’t become a professional singer, what would you be doing today?
I’d be in Advertising. I was in Advertising for four years and decided to stop and do this [music] full time.

Your album is titled ‘From Malaysia With Love’. What do you love most about Malaysia?
I love the east coast of West Malaysia – the beaches are so beautiful! I’m a beach bum and that’s what I love most about Malaysia. I tell all my friends about the beaches here. You can just go for short getaways within nature, if you like hiking and waterfalls. I think I’m lucky to come from here [Malaysia]. I don’t have to go so far to clear my mind.

Yup...the show happened at BORNEO RAINFOREST in Sunway, it was my first time there...I have to say that I really enjoyed myself. I didn't know what to expect, since it was pretty much my FIRST showcase since I've been back from Canada. I have officially become a fan of GILA MONSTARZ and DESERTERS. They are such a great band! Reminds me of the days when I was listening to Cursive. DESERTERS deserve more followers!! Click on their link and 'LIKE' them to show're not going to regret it.

KL Krash Pad

"KL Krash Pad, which includes Pusat Aktiviti Kanak Kanak, is a 24 hour activity center and 'safehouse' that wants to provide a 'safe,' healthy and loving environment for all children under the age of 18, living or loitering, in and around KL area. Children registered at the center are given food, shelter and are exposed to educational, health and recreational activities and programs that otherwise may not be accessible to them.
On an average day, there are about 30 children who attend a program at the center. Currently, this number increases to around 70 children on weekends. Most who come to the center are under the age of 12, but the number of teenagers who attend a program is on the rise. To date we have over 90 children registered.
Who are these kids? Most of the children are poor and discriminated against and are, from the areas around Chow Kit and TAR the greater parts of KL. They are, for the most part, unable to have their basic needs met and there is little adult supervision. Thus, many children stay on the streets in the middle of the night and are deemed as 'high risk' children.
KL Krash Pad is a collaboration project between the Department of Welfare (JKM), Wilayah and Yayasan Salam, Malaysia to assist, protect and address the issues that these children face and to provide a 'safe' zone or sanctuary for them."

This is going to be fun! Sharing the same stage with Deserters and Gila Monstarz. You know 'Breaking Up' managed to hit the #1 spot on the radio this year right?, therefore I'm inviting a very special guest that featured on the track! He goes by the name of KING LHOTA. So whoever wants to hang out with us, come down and meet us there for chit chats... :)
There will be free "From Malaysia With Love" CD giveaways! Come head over and grab yourself a copy!

See ya'll there!

Much love and respect, Nadhira
