Mnet Asian Music Awards MAMA 2011 @ Singapore [Sneak Peek]

Mnet Asian Music Awards MAMA 2011 @ Singapore Indoor Stadium

Hola, this is the view from my seats. I was complaining at first because seating at the side but feeling gratitude when I saw K-Pop Artist especially SNSD Girls Generation and 2NE1 sitting directly opposite of me. This is definitely a great first-time experience to witness so many K-Pop Artists in one same place. See them perform together and so real =D

Super Junior has the biggest fans base by listening to the crowd cheering for them. I've missed out the Red Carpet session because tons of K-Pop fans were earlier than me to queue up. Wonder what time they arrive at stadium~

Took tons of pictures and video snippets too. Not sure wanna upload those videos to YouTube or not because scared of account banning due to copyright issue.

Thanks Nuffnang and YourSingapore again for the MAMA Passes and shopping vouchers. Gonna go to shop tomorrow! Hope I can post more photos of MAMA soon! Gnight~

Raleigh Introduction Weekend Camp Dec 2011

Is monotonous city life getting you down? Do you think that you have more to offer than just succumbing to routine? Do you want to let loose and Get Out There? Then be a part of Raleigh KL!

Still not convinced? Then here are reasons why you should join our Introduction Weekend Camp Dec 2011!

clip_image001

1.Challenge your Limits,Go beyond your boundaries

First, let me explain that one of the main objectives of Raleigh KL is youth development.( As Raleigh is a NGO with the goal of accomplishing that). And their main event is the 3-month/10-week expedition. Expeditions are currently made to 3 countries: Borneo Sabah (right here in Malaysia!!), India and Costa Rica/ Nicaragua. Now before you can head off to any expedition, you must participate in a 3-day Introduction Weekend which provides a sort of simulation to an actual expedition.

So, by joining Raleigh KL, and ultimately going on an expedition, be prepared to push yourself further. Imagine wading through a river in “Leech Valley”, bearing extreme heights and climate to reach Kinabalu’s peak, sleeping under stars, trekking through untouched jungles and living everyday with only a knapsack to sustain you, and that’s just only a part of what an expedition offers.

2. Service to the community

Expeditions come in 3 phases. Besides the adventure phase, there is also an environmental phase where venturers (people who embark on expeditions) give their time and energy to be involved in community projects for the indigenous people. If your heart is set out to help the more needy people of our world and would like to see a community outside of our normal towns and cities, then this is your opportunity.

clip_image004

3. Be closer to nature

One more phase of the expedition is the environmental phase. Throughout your expedition, you will technically be neighbors with the local fauna. Camps will be set up right in the jungle and chances of encountering many different species of animals are…quite high. =)

With the chances of breathing fresh air in the city growing slimmer and slimmer, wouldn’t you cherish the idea of being a green lung yourself? See new sights, feel the living jungle around you and be grateful for nature.

clip_image005

4. Acquire new skills!

The expedition isn’t the only event Raleigh has. It’s just one of the more major ones. We also have other more impromptu meetings among each other and scheduled meetings every month. On a recent monthly meet, members were treated to a kayaking course at Tasik Titiwangsa.

clip_image006

5.Soul-searching

Don’t know what to do with life for now? Stuck at a metaphorical fork road? Why not take the chance to leave all your worries behind and discover yourself in new lands. Camping is always one of the most effective ways to let you loose and to help you forget all the troubles you face back in life.

Do you need some time for self-discovery? To find out who you truly are? Then try living your life on the road/track for 3 months. It does wonders =). Who knows what you will find out then.

The most important reason for you to join us is…!

6. The people!

If there was only one reason to join this society, it would be because of the awesome awesome people in it XD. People here come from all walks of life. Some are students, some are already in the working world or maybe they have already established families. But no matter what, they all come back to Raleigh to lend a hand if it’s a major event, or to just have fun. Their hearts don’t lie with Raleigh alone, they are also still youths like you and me and are keen to make a difference in this world. Furthermore, Raleigh people are all keen to help, to support you and to hear you out. They are people who are willing to give up their time to participate in the organisation’s activities =) A meeting was just recently conducted on a weekday night, when most of them would have probably rushed to after work/class.They form a band of brothers and sisters that would surely see each other through any rough weather =).

AIM 18 Song of the Year Award Rectification w Yuna & Anuar Zain

AIM 18 Song of the Year Award Rectification

“Sedetik Lebih”, the song performed by Anuar Zain with the melody and lyrics composed by Edry Abdul Halim has been declared the winner for the ‘Song of the Year’ for the 18th edition of ‘Anugerah Industri Muzik’ (AIM) in place of the song “Penakut” which was performed and composed by Yuna.

The Recording Industry Association of Malaysia (RIM)’s AIM 18 Organising Committee Co-Chairman, Rosmin Hashim informed that due to a misinterpretation of the awards criteria by Ernst & Young - the appointed external auditors for the AIM 18 judging process, the Song of the Year winner was incorrectly announced and awarded during the televised AIM 18 awards show on 12 November 2011 at Stadium Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur.

He added that remedial steps were taken by RIM immediately upon discovery of the unfortunate error and expressed RIM’s sincere gratitude to all the parties involved for being most gracious and cooperative in ensuring that the integrity of the AIM awards was preserved bearing in mind AIM’s objectives to honour local talents and to give due recognition to artistes, musicians, composers, arrangers, record producers and all involved in the Malaysian music industry.

Ahmad Zahirudin bin Abdul Rahim speaking in his capacity as a partner of Ernst & Young said,
“Regrettably, due to a misinterpretation of the award criteria, the winner for the Song of the Year as announced at the AIM 18 event held on 12 November 2011 was incorrect.

“Penakut” by Yuna, was erroneously determined to be the winner of the Song of the Year category based on the highest score awarded by judges to the 20 songs comprising the top five nominees for the sub-category awards for Best Pop Song, Best Rock Song, Best Ethnic Pop Song and Best Nasyid Song.

According to the criteria as set by RIM, the winning Song of the Year must be one of the four sub-category award winners.

On this basis, the winning Song of the Year for AIM 18 should have been “Sedetik Lebih” by Anuar Zain.

We would like to record our sincere apologies for any difficulties that may have been caused.”
Yuna & Rosmin @ AIM 18 Song of the Year award rectification

Yuna who also won the ‘Best Vocal Performance in A Song (Female)’ Award as well as the ‘International Award’ (‘Anugerah Kembara’ - in recognition of her achievements for promoting Malaysian compositions in the international arena) said, “Though this is not something expected, I appreciate that the AIM organisers are trying to do what is right. It is a legitimate expectation of all award winners to be treated fairly and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations to Anuar Zain and Edry Abdul Halim”.
Anuar Zain (who also won the ‘Best Vocal Performance in A Song (Male)’ and the ‘Best Pop Song’ Awards) and Edry Abdul Halim (who shared the ‘Best Pop Song’ Award as the composer and lyricist of “Sedetik Lebih”) jointly said, “We are very proud of Yuna and what she has achieved both locally and abroad as a fellow performer and songwriter, and would like to emphasize that no one should take any credit away from her. We would also like to express our appreciation for this Song of the Year Award.”


Rosmin Hashim concluded by saying:
“We would like to stress that this award rectification should in no way detract from Yuna’s fantastic achievements to date and as Malaysia’s collective recording industry association, RIM is very proud of what she has accomplished as a Malaysian artiste and songwriter to date and will definitely continue to support her and all others in the music industry. Full credit must also be given to our Malaysian music icons, Anuar Zain and Edry Abdul Halim for “Sedetik Lebih” winning the Song of the Year Award.

As announced at the post AIM media conference on 12 November 2011, RIM will be organising an open AIM forum at 3 pm on 6 December 2011 at the Royale Chulan Kuala Lumpur Hotel for members of the music industry and the entertainment media to provide comments and feedback on AIM with a view to improvements moving forward. It is our sincere hope that all parties will continue to support and contribute to the development of the Malaysian music industry.”



I can't imagine how it feels when the "Lagu Terbaik" award that Yuna have received need to be pull back due to unforeseen circumstances. It is not a mistake that suppose to be happen but I guess AIM and Ernst & Young are trying their best to make everything at the least damage.

"You see I am better, faster & stronger"

"Thank you RIM again for the other two AIM awards.. The babies and I would like to say thanks! hehe" - Yuna

I guess Yuna is quite professional and humble in handling this issue. At least she is stronger now. I am a fans of YunaMusic and totally support potential artist like her =) If you like her music, follow @yunamusic on Twitter!

What do you think about this AIM18 incident? Do you think Yuna deserve to win this award? Why/Why not?

Carp & Lotus @ Plaza Mont Kiara

Long time ago, I did a random photoshoot of my surrounding while I was waiting for my colleagues at Plaza Mont Kiara. It was early in the morning and sun rising up. Saw people rushing here and there to their office with their breakfast. Noticed a mom with her son near the pond.
Mom, see fish!!




There are different kind of fish in this pond. This one less obvious to be noticed
The orange colour carp




Close up shot of a carp that catch my attention

See the texture on this carp. Doesn't it look exactly the life like you saw on Chinese Drawing? =)

Do you raise carp in your house? How much does it cost? I heard my uncle raise a lot of it but once the water got problem, all carps die and eventually he was crying inside his heart. Because the carps that he raise weren't that cheap at all.

PS: If you noticed some of my blog post's photos are not showing properly, it is because someone using one of my image on high traffic website like eBay. Still figuring out which image they were using that cause this problem. Sorry for the bad visual experience... I wish someone could help me with this...

HaiLam Kopitiam @ Melaka Kota Laksamana + JX

Just back from a little gathering at HaiLam Kopitiam @ Melaka Kota Laksamana and I think the price of the drinks here is the same with HaiLam Kopitiam in KL. Just wonder if the rental will be the same or cheaper.


HaiLam Kopitiam is just like other cafe but with more colourful drinks that I never try before.


Here's my Pink drink - 'Dragon Fruit with Passion Fruit Drink'
It tasted just normal but cost RM7.50

Maybe I should open a shop that sell various kind of drinks like Chatime, GongCha, DongCha, SharedTea+++ and I will name it "Chad-time" instead #randomlikeaboss

I just need to make sure the drink is sweet but healthy enough and make sure people will get addicted with it after first try. Must have something chewy for people to bite. Still wondering why the pearls in the drinks are so chewy, did they use any conditioner/chemical to make those? I hope not.

A friend was doing some magic tricks


Here's a picture of my gathering with good buddies in Melaka. Talking a lot of stuff including works, life, politic and a bunch of cold jokes. Thanks to BoTzi and LiKiat for those jokes haha. For example:

“五个金,请猜一位艺人的名字”
Comment your answer below =)


Last but not least, thanks JX for treating us although today is his birthday today! By 'law' we are the one that should treat you good meal but oh well, owe you a present and will give you later la haha.

If you guys are good enough, go to visit JX blog, leave a comment and may his wish comes true =) I am sure he will feel great with your little wishing =)
