I’ll be back

Gosh, looking at the date of the last post, it’s been more than two and a half years since I last updated my tango blog!

These days I am dancing even less than two years ago. Apart from attending three maestro events (one night each), I have not been to any regular milongas this year. Relocating to a different country, and changes in personal life really forces you to re-prioritise your leisure time. Hopefully as life gets back to normal, I can return to dancing which has been an important part of my life for the past 14-15 years – assuming I have not lost the zest for it by then…


Revamp of music list

Beginning to revamp my music collection listing using Google App Engine. Needless to say, the formatting is spartan to say the least for the time being, but each of the columns can be easily sorted.



Tango Singapore calendar

Although I am still keeping up with tango news in the blogosphere (not sure if I just made up the word!?), have not been in the mood to write anything lately.

Anyway, just a quick announcement that I will be offloading the schedule of milonga and practicas in Singapore maintained locally to a calendar site based on Google Calendar, Tango Singapore event guide. In any case, I think the calendar format is still better for keeping track of regular events, especially when there are sudden changes to a fixed event but only for a short period. By the way, there is a rudimentary version specifically for smart phones/mobile browsers too. Hopefully this can be useful to visitors to Singapore who are looking for regularly scheduled tango happenings.


Andrea Missé

2012, like all new years, is supposed to start with a bang. Unfortunately the tango world has lost yet another of its stars – and a great personal teacher – Andrea Missé. Having hosted a couple of her previous tours to Singapore with Javier Rodriguez, no words can describe how saddened I am by this tragic news. Thank you for your guidance and generosity. RIP.

My prayers go out to her family, some of whom I understand still remains in intensive care at this moment.
