RANDTS will last a thousand years.

- Albert


Hey guys... As the title of this posts suggest, this is a goodbye from me. Even though I have watched Randts from the stages of its infancy, still some circumstances compel me to take my leave from this growing blog and blogosphere itself.

Being dragged into the idea of blogging by the two other founders of this blog, I cannot thank them enough for this opportunity to express my thoughts online and sharing them with the world; yet at the same time i cannot express my apologies appropriately to them for not fulfilling my duty towards this creation of ours.

To Albert and Jaspreet, I thank you both for constantly being an encouragement to me to blog (nonetheless, I have failed repeatedly to act on your kindness). Albert, you deleted the songs I gave you!!! I'll kill you!! (just joking lah...) Actually it is through this blog that I got to know many wonderful people of diverse interests and characters, thanks for all the gatherings you organized. Jaspreet... You are the best bhai I know man.. Keep on having that wonderful sense of humour, and I still remember what we did in Ikea (tongue in cheek).

Huiwen, it's been fun knowing you and chatting with you (online or through sms). I'm glad you found your role in Randts. I love the pictures you take though... and your purplish hippo..!!

Wen Li, I enjoy talking to you... be it about music, life, love... you are a fun person. Haven't seen you lately though. By the way, Mark Portnoy rocks! Love his "Siamese Monster" (Huge drumset manned by two people). Guess I'll catch you online sometime.

It has been an honour sharing the same blog as so many brilliant people. This shall go down in my mind as an interesting experience. Thanks Albert, for doing me this little favour.

My reason for quitting? Let's just say I was never a natural blogger to begin with. I wanted to blog about music and discuss little bits and pieces of guitaring techniques, but then I don't really know if it is the right platform, or whether I have really any solid material to write about. Anyways.. to everyone on this wonderful community, farewell I bid to all and a pat on the back for a good job done so far. Keep bringing Randts to greater heights.

    The moments that I've gone through with you in blogging have been rather anything but dull. Since Random Rantings till RANDTS, you've put up with both quite well.

    You found it hard to continue blogging although people kept encouraging you. It is OK if you lose the fire. Blogging requires passion and commitment. It's heavy stuff, y'know?

    Even if you can't post anymore, do visit us here and drop us comments or how-do-you-do's at the chatbox.

    Fare thee well.
