Picnic in the Cemetery
Thank you for visiting this site.
For the picnickers who don't already know, my name is Njo Kong Kie.
Why Music Picnic? Well, I like what the name suggests:
whether it is casual or formal, a picnic is always eclectic, joyful, whimsical, romantic, intimate and delicious -
key ingredients to a great picnicking experience.
Come picnic with us!
