Hear the whistle blow

Malinda Herman is a Thai lady who owns a beer bar. At home, she plays acoustic guitar (and piano) and sings to one or another of her small dogs. Sometimes the cat has a word.
I Love You to Want Me
500 Miles
Yesterday Once More
More Than I Can Say
There is more at her Youtube page and on her Facebook.

(I have probably missed a lot of information because I do not know Thai. I only know chihuahuas.)

That was very sweet. Since I was having dreams last night of melting from nuclear fallout, this was a very nice, quiet break from the horror.

I wish these were out back when Carl Sagan was sequencing the Voyager Golden Records.

All the animals, human or otherwise are terrific. Malinda has a soothing way about her. I know she posted these herself, but I still feel a little voyeuristic peering into her private life away from the beer bar.

Sometimes, simple is best.

Thanks for posting. I needed these.

Her cat sounds so much like my cat that I paused the video to ask him what he wanted! He’s a chatty fellow. My cat-loving dog was also confused why the kitty noises weren’t coming from the kitty.

Also, the chihuahua resting its head on the guitar was maximum cuteness.

Overall all of these videos are lovely, she has a great voice!

I may be going to Bangkok in November. Please, please tell me where I can find this beer bar?

She has a great voice and kinda went viral a few years ago with a Johnny Tillotson cover.

Please, please tell me where I can find this beer bar?

This article says she performs at Hey Mom Bar, which is here.

Sent this link to turtlegirl and when I got home she was crying while watching and listening. I joined in when I heard the Carpenters' song.

Aw, I am happy I could help you cry a little.
Since I posted this, she's put up a cover of "Jet Plane," which always makes me want to cry a little.

Oh my gosh I cannot wait for my boyfriend to get home so we can have a dance to 'More than I can say.' Thank you for sharing this; I am immediately in love!
