Sorry, I’ve been neglecting my WordPress account and using my Tumblr blog http://chrystalchan.tumblr.com/ more often due to convenience.  (My instagram account hooks up straight to it!)  But, I will still keep this up to date…just a bit slower.  I’ll be posting one more blog post right after this, for information of the upcoming show this Saturday!  Stay tuned!
