DJ Forge Invades Malaysia!!!!!

Alright....I can admit it. I'm pretty damn smitten by my Boyfriend. Things he has accomplished, and places he has been amazes me. He is a great support for me and my endeavors and vice versa. If you guys haven't experienced a DJ Forge Party or a Party by one of the Members in his crew, You are MISSING out. Call me biased, but I'm not the only one that shares the love for DJ Forge. Just check his PressKit and look at his credibility. There is a reason I'm like this!.... Plus I made his Press Kit. HAHAHA....Okay let me shut up. Now to the point of this post. DJ Forge is traveling halfway across the WORLD to DJ with some of the BEST DJ's in South East Asia. This is truly a milestone momment for him and I can't stop relaying how proud I am of him. So head over to his site and give him some love and encouragement. He is going to rip it, and I'm sure it won't be the last time he will be invading Asia.
