Rummaging through my box of MiniDv’s and labelling them, I found one that I had been searching for high and low. Long time readers of this blog would know about my obsession with The Alleycats. And heaven help them, now that I have found the recording of their performance in London some years ago. This was at Oriental City, a year after Cik Siti performed on the same stage before her Royal Albert Hall debut.
I have learnt a thing or two about transferring visuals on to Movie Maker but I have yet to learn how to edit music. That’s a tough one.
Anyway, I remember the last time I was watching this video, I told my youngest about Loga. I said, Loga is not well as he had some sort of cancer. Imagine my shock when I heard that he died the very next day. I couldn’t even write a tribute although many readers came to my blog expecting me to write something about him.
The last time I went home to Malaysia, I was supposed to meet them and give them a copy of the video as I think it has some sentimental values, especially to David.
You can see two youngsters enjoying the performance by the side of the stage. That’s David’s son and daughter who came to meet him in London. Before that, they had not seen each other for 11 years, I think. You can see how proud they were of their father and uncle.
As you can see, it was a last minute decision to have the performance, but fans young and old came from as far as Liverpool. They danced and sang along. And Kak Teh managed to sit with David on the steps of the stage and hold the microphone while he sang. And guess what? I managed to say, Ma Kaseeeeeh!!!!! when he finished singing.
I have just edited this one song out of a whole hour’s recording. Enjoy it –
Loga, you will be missed. And congratulations to Datuk David Arumugam and Datin Sabrina.
