Soooo, what have i been up to over the past two weeks? well i took a pretty much useless trip down to singapore. walked around the usual spots, walked all the way to the esplanade in hope of a music fest only to find out baybeats is only in 2 weeks time. i did meet up with an awesome damn cool only chindian dude to be found in singapore,Phil Chin, who i met at camporama middle of this year. we walked around a bit and watched LOVE GURU. stupid show. hahaha. oh but i did get an awesome pair of earphones. its 70 bucks but, it was all worth it. the sound is awesome.
and, my grandma's new hse in singapore is at a perfect location. two bus stops from junction8 shopping mall,MRT,and Bus terminal. Right above a whole bunch of hawkers, mamaks, and markets. a few stops from bishan community centre. and get this, a five minute walk from the track and field and football stadium for YOUTH OLYMPICS 2010. so yeah, Bishan rocks.
Few days later we had our Expedition Slumber Night. went rock climbing at camp5, and ps2-ed and pool-ed the rest of the night at Goh's hse. the next day we took a trip to kuala selangor to see some mammals, but all we got was a bird, a mudskipper, a few lizards, tiger scratched marks on a tree, crabs, and a rock that we all imagined was an alligator. and then, i broke my flops for the 6th time. but after that, we had pretty good seafood over sungai selangor.
While all that was happening, DENISE CHAN, a chick i met randomly in akarkarya a year ago who i bumped into at mtv auditions who also made it to MAA and had an awesome night, the same as i did, FREAKING WON THE AVRIL WANNABE CONTEST. crap. 3000 cash, a squier telecaster, and meet and greet passes to avril's concert. so there u have it. hahaha.
Then last night, i decided to go all the way to Putrajaya to catch the Grand finale of the international fireworks competition. went with my mom and my younger sis. the whole show only lasted for half an hour, so that sucked. but it was pretty nice.

Now it is time for another music update. last i checked, my favourite band list has been Switchfoot,Relient K, Anberlin, Paramore, Fall Out Boy, and the ever so awesome 30seconds to mars. but just a few days ago, i've added a few moree.
Ladies and gentlemen, The Script. This irish band hailing from.. well, ireland has incredible lyrics that bring meaning to life. this is added with awesome music, a kind of band R&B with rap.and not to mention, their lead singer's voice is freaking awesome. they only have one EP and a few recorded songs. but they're reaaaallly awesome. and extra points for them being unmistakably incredible, live at MAA. they made the cut. Congradulations!
and then there's falling up. Christian rock band from US. when i first heard them i thought, great sound. till i checked out their old albums. shiiittt, freaking awesome. being a christian band, they most definitly have a message in their lyrics. but their music is out of this world. its funk,R&B,rock,alternative and even some techno all combined into one. HOW COOL IS THAT?
Mute Math. anything with the word math in it, i've never liked, untill now. i discovered them through Transformers Soundtrack,where they did an amazing remix of the transformers theme song.so that gave me a good enough excuse to go explore their other music. but ares was being an ass, so i had to wait a while. this band is almost like falling up,except they have awesome vocals,an incredible drummer, and THEY ARE DAMN CHUN LIVE. seriously, check them out. and they're christian too. so thats awesome music,awesome lyrics,and amazing live performance.and for me, a good live performance is much additional points.
Panic, u unfortunately didn't make the cut. u guys were no doubt awesome at MAA and ur music is definitly one of a kind and ur circus live shows are daaaammnnn cool. but in chasing the dream of being different from other people, ur lyrics just don't mean nothing. haha, sad to say. but yeaaahhh thats a big part of how good a band is. so i'd confirm go for ur shows and mosh,dance,go crazzzyyy.but i don't know whatheheck i'm singing. hahaha. but keep it up, someday u'd make it into my list.
But nine in the afternoon, is niceeee. its a happy song for happy people,where it's nine in the afternoon, and our eyes are the size of the moon. and we're feeling so good just the way that we should :)
