Sittin by the Dock of the Bay

My eyes popped open at 5 this morning and after a night full of Malerone dreams (malaria prevention pills, they cause crazy vivid dreams) I welcomed the coming dawn and took this opportunity to take a walk down by the docks of the bay. After a really nice walk, I got some dim sum and coffee for breakfast, it was amazing.

I had enough time to practice,post some pics on FB and put up some blog posts. After that we went to do a workshop at Sabah Institute of Art. The students were awesome and we had so much playing together and taking pics after the workshop.

When we were finished we were presented a certificate of appreciation by the Dean.

After some more photos and autographs, we broke into smaller groups and answered some specific questions about our instruments etc.

Brian and I went off in search of more dim sum after the workshop. Our hosts from Sparks and the Embassy treated us to a great lunch at one of their favorite spots.

We headed over to Sutera Harbor to do our sound check, press conference and interview.

After our press conference/ interview I took a walk around the grounds.

Johnny and Rodger talked about our set list and he made some suggestions about what he knew woul work with his audience at the Jazz Festival.

We finished up all the band interviews and were heading back to our hotel, when I saw the sun setting over the bay and had to jump out of the car to take some pics.

As the sun sets on our day, we wish you a beautiful start to your's. We are at the first night of the Jazz Festival now listening to all these wonderful artists. How blessed are we all to share in this moment, as it all unfolds around us, within us. What a wonderful world indeed:)
