One of the highlights of our Singapore gig was Dekat. Yes, Dekat THE band. Just realized that I've actually known them since their Tangga days. Grabbed their album at Esplanade Singapore's Cipta Cita but nothing beats watching them performing live. NOTHING.

Waktu ketemu itu aku malah langsung nanya - "Kalian makan apa sebetulnya kok stamina bisa kayak gitu? Gila tau ga? Gila!" Man, I have A LOT to learn from them. Can't believe we shared the same stage and performed at the same festival. It feels like I could NEVER do what they do.

Dekat, it was great meeting you guys and talking to you that night. Makasih banyak! Kita jumpa lagi ya? Moga terus sukses dan mudah-mudahan bakal punya rejeki untuk berpentas di Malaysia. Heck, I'd probably find ways to bring you guys here!

Cinta,
Wani Ardy

Fight for your dream.

Even when your family doesn't understand.

Even when your loved ones want it to end.

Your dream makes you.

It'll never leave you.

It'll never change unless you want it to.

Fight for your purpose.

Fight for your happiness.

Fight for your essence.

Ikhlasku

ketahui dalam duniaku

kau adalah manusia yang paling juara

memenangi dua mama sedari syurga

Ikhlasku

ketahui dalam duniaku

rahim Ibu tempat jasadmu terangka

doa Bonda tempat jiwamu tercipta

Ikhlasku 

ketahui dalam duniaku

aku tiang tanggamu sampai bila bila

apa pun yang bakal terjadi esok lusa

Ikhlasku

amanahku

pinjamanku,

ketahui dalam duniaku

tujuanku cuma dua;

cita dan cinta-

cita itu karyaku

cinta itu ikhlasku.

Alhamdulillah yesterday's first two sets went well, walaupun SEMUA menggigil kegemuruhan. Saya paling teruk agaknya. Sakit kepala, sakit perut, sakit dada- I can't remember when was the last time I felt THAT nervous. But nervous is good, I guess, it means that you wanna do only the best. Not perfect, but the best. I believe we gave our all last night. Habis persembahan, lunyai kebahagiaan. Kepelbagaian penonton dan perhatian yang diberikan oleh hadirin juga memberangsangkan. Orang Asia. Orang barat. Tua. Muda. We had non Malay-speaking audience buying our CDs.

Sebelum kami terus ke dua set yang terakhir hari ini, saya rasa penting untuk kami berterima kasih kepada 12 individu yang menjaga kami melalui pelbagai cara, sepanjang perjalanan kami ke sini dan selama perjuangan kami di Singapura.

Abang Ammir. Kak Ben. YB KJ. Mr. Ezlan. Luca. Syuk. Siti Aishah. Syahidah. Sri Sufianti. Afni. Suhana. Nabil. THANK YOU.

Sejujurnya kami tak pernah merasa dijaga sebegini. Membalasnya mungkin yang mampu...

I have always believed in my poetry, my music. Always. Tapi saya tak pernah terfikir untuk berpentas di tempat yang sebegitu gah ini, apatah lagi terfikir untuk mempunyai para pendengar luar Malaysia yang sanggup menaja saya dan 10 orang ahli pasukan saya. This is just steps away from my homeland, yes, but it took me many, many years to get to this level, and I am glad to say that- dengan izin Maha Pengkarya, untuk malam ini saya bersedia.

Merasmi antologi prosa & puisi Untuk Yang Telah Pergi dalam perjalanan ke Singapura. Memegang dan membacanya buat kali pertama memberi saya semacam rasa sayu, seperti mantan kekasih yang sudah tidak sama tetapi masih kita rindu.

Nota: Untuk Yang Telah Pergi boleh dibeli dari Rumah Ripta dan saya juga ada membawa 10 buah ke persembahan saya di Esplanade, Singapura.

Pesta jiwa esok lusa. Bismillah!

Esplanade celebrates the Malay Language Month with Cipta Cita.

Whether you want to or not, you simply cannot ignore Wani Ardy & The Guitar Polygamy. Marrying the tender, melodic toughness of Wani’s early singer-songwriter influences with trippier, slanted fare, this musical outfit goes all out to work their magic while proving that they are rapidly becoming the little band that COULD.

Wani Ardy and the Guitar Polygamy di pentas Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay pada hari Jumaat dan Sabtu ini. 2 hari, 2 pentas, 4 set, 11 lagu. Kami wakil tunggal dari bumi Malaysia buat memeriah Festival Cipta Cita. Singapura, tunggu kami!

Barangkali rasa terindah hari ini adalah apabila para penonton yang berbilang bangsa, agama, dan usia memilih untuk duduk dan dengar muzik kami, puisi kami, walau dihenyak hingar bingar hutan konkrit. Kami asalnya menjangka yang buruk - persembahan ditenggelami riuh rendah manusia - kerana sejujurnya apalah lagi yang berani hendak kami harapkan setelah ditimpa pelbagai cabaran sepanjang di JB. Sangkaan kami ternyata meleset. After the show, one of the audience who approached me was a non-Malay-speaking lady who told me that our performance moved her to tears despite the fact that she didn't understand the lyrics. She asked me, "What was it about? I felt like it was a dream." And she felt it right. The song was indeed about a dream. Dia menangkap ruh lagu kami sekadar dari bunyi dan bahasa tubuh. Allah. Isn't that amazing?

The last time I had a work desk was in April 2015. Back then I was lecturing at a public university. Today I've got myself my very first desk since I've become a full-time writer and performer, yay! See that little white desk at the corner? Yup. It's what my space and I can afford to accommodate for now, but I'm grateful. The size reminds me of those desks we used to have in high school. And y'know what? That's how I feel right now. I'm back at one; new place, new career. (Yes, it still feels new to me.)

Besides writing and performing, I manage this bed-and-breakfast #RumahIpoh. We have guests almost everyday and we're fully booked every weekend. I used to sell my blackwear online but since I setup #RumahIpoh, my female guests would usually buy them even before I have the time to post them online. Alhamdulillah.

Okay enough rambling. Back to the overdue manuscript of my third book and preparing for my shows in JB-Singapore very soon. Wish me luck!
