i.gemz showcased "You Showed Me The Way"

Firstly, Happy Wesak everyone! May all beings live in peace and harmony :)

In conjunction with Wesak eve, i.gemz performed 6 songs in BGF center, including the following:
- You Showed Me The Way - a heartfelt and moving song written by Anson in remembrance of the ex-Chief K Sri Dhammananda, and as a tribute to the members of the Maha Sangha
- The Dharma Shines in Me - a souled-up rendition of the timeless classic written by Daniel
- Thankful - a reminder that we should be thankful for what we have

Overall, the response from the crowd was encouraging. We hope that we've managed to inspire those who were there on that night.

Wow we look good :P

This was taken in SKE in Malacca when we were there to perform for the Echoes of Buddhism 4. The attire we chose was "black top, blue jeans bottom, with a dash of colour". Looking at the photo, it is clear that the most outstanding individuals are Wee Fah (with the smashing bright yellow necktie) and Sue Lynn (with the bright red uber cool belt :P) Sue Ann also showed up after a gruelling 6 hour bus ride from Singapore earlier in the morning :)

The name is i.gemz

Perhaps it's a case of wrong naming strategy for our band.

Our band is called i.gemz. It's spelled with all small letters. An "i" followed by a "dot" followed by "g e m z". Yes, it ends with "z", not "s".

It's not the following names:
  • i-gem
  • igem
  • i.gem
  • i.gems
  • i-gems
  • I-germ

Plainly, it's i.gemz

We'll be back soon :)

Hey, just because we didn't update the blog, doesn't mean we have not been busy.

Why, just yesterday i.gemz performed in the Mother's Day Appreciation Dinner hosted by Sri Jayanti Temple. And just 2 weeks prior, i.gemz performed in Echoes of Buddhism 4 in Malacca.

Don't fret. i.gemz is still around, still alive. Just buzz us. You can contact the following:
