Thankful (lyrics and guitar chords)

C Dm G
It is morning, I waken from my sleep
C Dm G
Taste the cool, sweet freshness in the air
Am F C G/B Am
Watch the sky so gracious with its colours all around
Dm G
Ooh I'm thankful to be here

I pass the day with reverence to the world
Appreciate the beauty that appears
And rejoice in the happiness of people all around
Dm G C
Ooh I'm thankful to be here

Am F C
(And I know) I know that sadness does exist
Am F
(And I know) I know that things will change and
C G/B Am G
surely so will this
F G Em F Em
I'm thankful that this moment's happening as it should
Dm G
That's the meaning of true bliss

I fall asleep as night comes near
Close my eyes and my mind is bright and clear
And I know tomorrow's journey will be starting soon
But for now, I'm thankful to be here

Yes right now, I'm thankful to be here

We're still here!

Hello all,

How is everyone doing? For those who have wondered "What happened to this group of Igemmers?" - We're doing ok. In fact we're all doing great!

We have been busy practicing for upcoming performances and new materials for future performance. /winkwink, watch out for it.

Up next for us is SBS Kathina in Taiping. So if you are there, do come over and say hi! We don't bite. Perhaps a little playful nibble. :)

Anyway, here's a little sneak preview of what we've been doing. Enjoy!

Breathing In, Breathing Out Igemz style.

World Peace Prayer

Thank you to Mother Mangalam and Mr Moorthy for inviting us to "The Symphony of Peace Prayer" held recently on Sunday, May 17 2009 at 8am. The venue is at The Temple of Universal Spirit, in The Pure Life Society, Batu 6, Jalan Puchong Kuala Lumpur.

The i.gemz sang "The Dharma Shines In Me" and "Let Peace Prevail On Earth" for the occasion.  Later everyone gathered hand-in-hand around the temple's Peace Pole to sing another unity song.  It was very peaceful.

Where will i.gemz appear next?

Recordings Are Over!

We have officially finished all vocal and backing vocals that we need to do our the i.gemz 2nd Album. That was on Thursday 14 May 2009. I officially feel quite lost and empty now that the recordings are done. But I am getting excited in all our future shows, gigs and roadshows.

So far, we have not even decided which is the best Album title to use. The working title of the album is "Blessings", after one of the songs in the album.

A Call for Practice.

Shout! i.gemz!!!!

Confirm! Tonight i.gemz practice for tomorrow Saturday's 12noon performance at BGF.
Tonight, since we are going to celebrate Wesak Eve in BGF, it would be a good idea to practice too.
What does Datuk Wira Poh Wee Fah says about the 3rd floor in BGF? "Caaan, no problem."

Note 1: Nee Sern is not able to make it to practice tonight because he needs to rest his sore barritone voice.

But we will practice as if he was here (and he will be performing with us tomorrow Saturday anyway.)

We also wish Nee Sern and Swee Feng a romantic night together tonight.

Note 2: Anone Sushi Jusco will also not make it. Why? <Anone just laugh hehheh> Shy shy cannot tell.
Note 3: Sue Lynn will be preparing Keluaga Bahagia Chia Pom Pi Pi Ais Kacang Ball Stall and will not make it. Her glamour sister will make a show tomorrow.

I miss you guys and hope to see you in BGF for practice at 7.30pm (as Datuk and the Wayfarers are also going to be doing some last minute practices there, it will be good to go early)

Catch us live tomorrow (9 May 2009) at Buddhist Gems Fellowship
WESAK 2009
12 Noon (Just before lunch pot-lucky)
20 minutes of non-stop Wesak flavoured songs
All the i.gemz will be there dressed in Traditional White.

sincerely, Big Bird.

i.gemz Duet: You Showed Me The Way

Here is Jing Pei and Anson singing the only Duet ever written by i.gemz in dedication to the late Chief Reverand K. Sri Dhammananda. Lots of hard work!

This song took nearly a year for the lyrics to be fitted in, nearly another year to fine tune and practice, but all that work was really worth it.

Recording at Greg's Place on 29th and 30th April 2009.

Practice at Sue and Dan's House

It was after practicing with Anson, Wee Fah, Jing Pei, Siew Chan that someone noticed the little foot platform that Classical guitarists use. Nee Sern went ahead to "show" off to the others how it functions. He played Green Sleeves.

I like how the wall colour at the back is separated by Nee Sern in the foreground.
