She also sings Chinese classics and oldies that Mr Lai loves.

Mei got to know Jason Geh at “Souled Out” restaurant, Sri Hartamas as he performs there once a week with a local singer. Mei ask if Jason was able to form a trio to accompany Suzan on her father’s birthday in which Jason willingly agreed.

From then on, Jason communicated with Suzan through email on the songs that she planned to sing. However, there were plenty of unforeseen request from the guest that night to render songs that weren’t from her chosen list. But with Suzan and Jason’s performing experience, they were able to fulfill most of the request spontaneously even though it was their first performance together.
