But, who is the man behind the persona? Blink is best known for his energetic shows—sets that are full of infectious beats, creative mixes and, of course, the occasional fireworks display. Off-stage, however, he's not quite the
crowd-stirring entertainer—in his words, once the curtains close, he's a completely different person. "I'm way calmer," he laughs. In fact, the difference is so stark that his on-stage identity is completely unrecognisable
to some. "My family had never seen me perform before last year, and when they did, they were quite shocked," he chuckles.
He wasn't always the confident mic man like he is now, though. "The confidence on stage took
time to build," Blink explains, going on to assert that learning how to perform takes practice. In his case, it came in the form of teaching. When the MCO put a full stop to nightlife in KL, Blink pushed himself to explore
new ventures, namely in spin classes. Instead of championing the stages of Zouk, he began leading spin sessions at Pwrhouse Fitness Studio. "The spinning that I teach there has given me the confidence to speak at the right
time on stage," he reveals. "Everything crosses over and everything happens for a reason. If MCO hadn't happened, I wouldn't be an instructor. If I wasn't an instructor, I wouldn't be as confident talking into the mic on stage."
