Can't always have it your way eh?

3 weeks ago, i went for casting for a DiGi ad and almost made it untill they found out i had exams so they thought i'd back out last minute. so i didn't get it. then yesterday i casted for an astro ad that offered a free trip to bali [cuz the shoot is there] for five days, i get to climb a mountain and get paid 1000bucks. but again, i didn't make it.ahahahaha. neither did the rest of the world,josh jesudasan,yen,naeden and my sis' friends. but brando made it, good for him.haha.

Speaking of mountain climbing, only 1 more month till we take on kk! and one more month to pmr of course.haha. a good 700 bucks i invested into this trip. and from the looks of it, i may be climbing it next year with my mates in school[so aussie eh?haha]. but this year, i'm climbing with the same bunch that took on Gunung Tahan last year. except now the group is much smaller and yen is joining us.

Brought it on.

Bring it on.

Today i went for my annual shopping[spent 300 bucks last year] and came back empty handed. man,what a blow. couldn't find anything nice and worth the money my mom gave me. except a Vans Tee which is pretty nice but its not what i went there for. well,like my sis' always says,in shopping,u can't always have it your way. So to brighten me up, my mom took us to Carls Jr. Burgers and gave us a Charbroiled Famous star[the cheapest among all.haha] man, it was good weih.

Carls Jr is old. apparently their franchise[how to spell?] in malaysia closed down years ago. so long ago that i can't remember eating it. but my mom said i've eaten it when i was a baby.haha.[see, so my theory of babies don't know how to appreciate life is right!] all those people who want a whopper for lunch, take a walk to carls jr instead,its worth ur cash[even thought prices are about rm 20 a good meal].

So anyway, i came home and did some Geografi exercises [i'm improving!] and since i managed to score an A for it again, i decided to treat myself to a movie, Chicken little! nope,never watched it before. borrowed it from huiying with a whole bunch of other dvd's. but enough about that.. Chicken little was funnier than i expected. next up : the last mimzy!

Oh and one more thing..

Happy Birthday Soph Chong Yu Fun!

Danced the night away.

So yess, in the end i did go for Aseana Percussion Unit's gig. and it was awesome. just not as awesome as last year.haha. i skipped aunty pats[shawna's other aunt] dinner for this and i think it was worth it. got to taste some of the food anyway since my mom brought back some.haha. ohya,and i went for the fest with the same two monkeys :

cuz SssSsSShhhhaaAaAwwwwnaaaa couldn't come.[nvm,theres always a next year eh?] what really grabbed my attention that night before APU came up on stage is the little kids playing with the cool fountains. man, they were so cute and meiwan couldn't stop noticing 'em too.haha. then there was this dude in front of me with a real farnie shirt.ohya,and his chick,had a big head that blocked me from watching everything. the night seemed to have more indians.hahaha. there was this indian dude,not bad leh,he can dance.hahaha. kinda reminds me of the SYTYCD indian dude.he rocks weih. i think he shud have won.haha.



Cute dei. haha.
Oo. someones in trouble now.haha.
As geeky as i was last time,i don't remember being like this one.what a loser.
Cheers mate.
Meanwhile, Isaac's boss was performing, Sharizan. he sang the same tau Sah Pau version of spiderman like last year. this year, he also sang "tanggal 31." what a classic.anyway,i never did fancy him.he's as borin as shelley leong[inkkie's cousin].hahaha. When APU took the stage, they started very shallow and tribal like they always do.for some reason,they always save their best for the last.same like last time.hahaha. they also mixed a whole bunch of asian music into one song.real cool weih. since most of the unit are indians, they really knew how to sing indian songs. then there was the chinese violin that gave the whole cina feel. there was the saxaphone,keys,modern violin, and the drumset to make the whole younger feel. topped off with justin,the dreadlocks dude who made the more tribal percussions. just perfect weih.
The big drum dudes.

Floor percussions.
Throw in a modern snare.
The congo's.
The bass.
The cinaman.
2 Vocalists.
Mark david,my mommy's friend.[ivan calls him the shuffling dude.haha]
The Justin Section [why?cuz he's darn cool.]:
He works everything actually.
Particularly the Regular percussion kit.
and the erh. whatever.haha.
and every year, towards the end of their gig, they'd always get into one drumline and it would be darn cool. or they'd teach how to do some dikir barat and once or twice justin would do an amazing solo [the dude can change from hands to elbows.] which i videod but youtube sucks so i couldn't upload it.
Dikir barat
APU style.
Then we goofed around till my sis and her friends were rdy to go. cuz as always, Sarah and her friends will always go talk to justin and what not.hahaa.[seriously,when justin comes to do his solo,all the chicks scream his name.hahaha].
we didn't plan it, but we ended up making the same faces.
Damn Scary.
Emo Shmemo.
Meiwan as darn funny.
well, the cool thing bout APU is they get the crowd involved.instantly, everyone started running up and dancing in the middle of no where. So we went to. and i got to see ivan dance. ahahahaha. but really, even in their drumline's the give us actions to dance to. really fun old people.hahaha. but last years was more fun liao. APU is the only band that can get people to dance. they're music is totally different from any norm jazz. thats why u cannot say if APU or funk mob is better.its totally different.
Thank you, you two for coming again.haha, i think we can start a jazzfest gang.lol.

25 August 2007


AHhhHhh! terence just got a nikon D100 DSLR a month ago! babi hutan! and he brought to our litle gathering of the forces. [risk]. man, i can wait for one.hahaha. i shall have too anyway. Thank You Lord for getting one for me! ahahahaha.
as for now,i shall just make do with my damn chun but not as chun as the one terence has digital Powershot A620 camera.

It comes to those who wait.

Hosanna's last moments on sucky soil are coming to an end. for her, i guess thats both good and bad. all the wonderful times she and all her friends have shared together, the good food here[the only thing to love malaysia for], the joy of being around a majority of chinese and indians or in betweens. on our part,sure we're gonna miss all the times we make fun of that shortie, the high pitch voice yelling "yu tjin! why u so annoying wun?!" or her common line, "very good,very good".
But,these things have to happen,its life man. So what better way to say goodbye than with a farewell?
who likes the intro?ahahahahaha... k whatever. last night the whole jing bang bunch together with hosanna went all the way to Sunway to have the best steamboat buffet around. too many of 'em found themselves in the norm friday hectic jam. and two poor souls had to wait for a good half an hour at KJ station for zech to come along.
The food? awesome weih. i'm not a steamboat guy but all the cina fellas taught me how to eat the right way. so anyway, now i have the ability to explain the whole process of enjoyment. it begins as follows..
Grab all the raw food from the buffet counter and dump 'em into the boat.
Pop the lid over and wait a good long 5-10 mins.remember,good things come to those who wait.
Reach for the boat and grab whatever u see.
Whatever u find between those two sticks, pray its edible. or just go "whatheheck?!"
Give a satisfied smile and mayb a thumbs up for the wonderful taste.[repeat steps 1-5 for further enjoyment.]
walah! so thats that then. the price per head is 18.50. ohya and every 100grams of unfinished food u leave,they'll charge 6 bucks. so yeah,they're pretty serious. oh,and they have bbq-ed chicken and rice and ice cream to go along with the catch too. everyone went for tau fu and prawns. as for me, i went for the shellfish.oysters are good man. k now the rest are for pics. u know what sucks? my sis used up all the batteries for dennisa's farewell.so i oni got to take about 30 pics?yeah. i felt darn bored after it drained.
The other table.
yeah, the steam kills ur eyes.
oysters and lala's. my grub.
Janielle Beh came along.
So did Ivan.yeah,he had fun.
Even naeden decided to show up.
For the food.
Yen,showed up wearing the same thing as me.
And he brought his coolpix along too.
Tjin was the monkey at our table.
Shawna always finds someone to take a pic with her.
Hosanna had fun i guess.
The night ended with money problems. darren teoh pop'ed by last minute too. know whats funny?every single member of the family has their own farewell. yesterday's was denisa's and at night was hosanna's. this afternoon's is benneton and benjamin and tonight,is aunty deana's.hahaha. well now,all the expedition rangers are havin fun at slumber night,while i'm studying or bloggin at home.but i'm just waiting for tonight, JAZZ FEST!wohoo! i decided to go anyway. shawna might be joining us too.untill then, tura!.
