On Friday afternoon, I received a text from my friend, he asked if I want to hang out after work. I haven’t seen him for months now, so I said, yes.
Exactly at 5.30 PM, I checked out from the office and went to the location that we agreed to meet. We had our coffees at a cafe in Suria KLCC and spend two hours talking about our life and where are we heading next. Quite a productive meeting too.
Then we part ways, he went to the car park and I have to catch the LRT train. As I reached the KLCC LRT station, the area was filled with a captivating rhythm of jazz from a guitar. They had this reserved area for performance only and as I found out the source of the song I heard came from that area, I stopped and listened to the musician.
I don’t know who he was except from the A4 size paper on his luggage bag with few copies of audio CDs for sale RM25 each. His name was written on the paper, Yuta Tanaka. I was watching and listening to him for almost an hour. I stand few meters away from the area he was performing and I was amazed by his amazing skills.
The second song I heard was a romantic one. The song hit me deep in the feels. It was a situation when you listen to an instrumental song that touched you and as if you can relate to the song. As I was listening to it, memories came flashing in front of me. Tears came out from my eyes as I was in awe listening to his song.
Then he played a different song, this time it is a lot more playful and upbeat. I stand there, unmoved. The crowds passed by him, some stopped, some listened and enjoyed it, there were a lot of passers tipped too.
The only thing that I had in my mind is how fantastic he was, his songs were amazing and mesmerizing plus his fantastic skills. If I were to put it, I was basically fall in love with his music. His songs filled with souls and effort. It was so good that I don’t feel like moving. Other than that, I was contemplating either to buy his CDs or not. I did some search and he is legit but he only have one song in iTunes. The longer I stayed, the more I fallen in love. I didn’t hesitate after that, I bought two of his Audio CDs. After that, I left.
After I reached home, I instantly played the CDs. It was a money well spent for me. Not long after that, I bought his song from iTunes too! Here is the link to the song for iTunes: Just for a While (iTunes)
