Earlier in the afternoon...

But I was getting there, wasn't I? Haha. Had a good laugh. The version I used to hear ended at that "country" part.

*psst: Out of boredom, I then tried it on my housemate. Failed horribly, too. Blearh.
MY FM 7th Annv Live Band Concert In Genting (Part 2)
Sunday, September 18, 2005
Here comes the second part (first part here). When Li Jiu Zhe sang BEP's Where's The Love, the audience got up and danced along. His performance was great, totally entertaining!

This is one cool act we don't usually see...:

I recorded a short video clip of him walking through the crowd - and boy how the crowd loved him!

Ah... Ping Guan, Jin Sha and Zhong Shen Zhong in the front row.

William Xin Wei Lian, posing with the grand piano.

He sang Moment Mei You Ni, which was very nice! *Grins*

Zhang Dong Liang and Cai Chun Jia.

Zhang Dong Liang fanatics...

His songs are so popular everyone could sing along! They included Dang Ni Gu Dan Ni Hui Xiang Qi Shui, his new songs Zhi Zai Hu Ni and Ri Ri Ye Ye.

Zhang Zhi Chen appeared again towards the end of the show, belting out his latest, Kuai Le. The music video of this song was repeated at least 3 times earlier (before the show started). I think they were trying to make everyone practise singing the song; its lyrics was even provided in a heart-shaped handout!

The End.

Excuse me for the lousy captions :p My project turned out bad today. Sigh. Presentation has been postponed to tomorrow. Gonna go work on it now. Double sigh.
You Think You Need An iPod Nano?
I want an iPod nano. But I have a problem. I have no answer to my own question, "Why should I buy one?". It's not very cheap, either. So of course, before deciding whether to throw that much of money away in exchange for an iPod nano, a few obvious questions must be answered.

Where and when would I use it? Err... not when I'm sleeping, that's for sure. In the library? I don't, and can't listen to music when I'm studying. How about in malls? Personally, I'd rather not listen to music in crowded places, buses and trains included. Uhm, I prefer to be more alert to my surroundings. So where, then, can I really put the iPod into good use? And ensure that my money spent is well justified?

Just look at the iPod nano. By just looking at it, that little devil in you tells you, "You want one. You can't fool yourself, you know you want one". The iPod nano is one of the most desirable items recently launched, I'd say. How do I convince myself that I need one of those? I know they make perfect Christmas and birthday gifts, no doubt about that. But dei, that much of money for a gift (for other people), might as well pamper myself. Unless I'm really rich, of course ;p

Hmm... *strokes chin*

By the way (you've gotta check this out)...
What does it take to destroy an iPod nano?
[From here.] "...To simulate everyday accidents that could result in a broken iPod, we came up with a few situations that we felt would ultimately leave the nano lifeless:

1. Sitting on the iPod nano
2. Dropping it while jogging (4-6mph),
3. Dropping at various speeds: 8-10mph (slow bicycle), 15-20mph (fast bicycle), 30mph (slow car), and 50mph (fast car)
4. Dropping the nano from various heights.

We were forced to depart from our planned schedule of destruction and try and run over it with the car. Surely, we thought, it could never withstand the crushing power of German automotive engineering..."

Holy cow! If you read on, you'll see that "...the nano had journeyed to the Land Where Consumer Electronics Are Eternally Blessed". That's when the music "finally" subsided, and the player's dead. *Speechless...*
MY FM 7th Annv Live Band Concert In Genting
Sunday, September 11, 2005
I was in Genting for MY FM's 7th anniversary celebrations last night. Took lotsa pics and a coupla videos with my humble good ol' Cybershot digicam.

To be really honest, I'm not a big fan of any of the artistes... I just know them, because I listen to this radio station, of course. Almost all too often.

We were ushered into the Arena of Stars and I found myself star-struck. I couldn't imagine how near I was to the stage, it was like... what, 5 steps away?

Ping Guan (å“å† ) was the first to perform. He belted, among others, Hou Lai De Wo Men (后来的我们) and Shen Bian (originally a duet with Guang Liang), which he sang with one of the deejays. At one point he walked down the stage and went to Jin Sha (金莎) (in pic).

And the fans just couldn't get enough of him...

Next up was the duo Yuan Wei Jue Xing (元卫觉醒), who sang a few songs, including their famous hit, Xia Tian De Feng (夏天的风).

Later, they were joined by deejays Phoebe and Mei Yan.

Jin Sha, seen here performing Bei Feng Chui Guo De Xia Tian (被风吹过的夏天) with Zhong Shen Zhong (é’Ÿç››å¿ ). Her original duet partner of this song, Singaporean Lin Jun Jie (林俊杰) was not present, citing a tight schedule.

You won't believe how pretty Jin Sha is in person... OMG. She sat just two rows in front us, together with the rest of the artistes.

Local R&B hype, Zhang Zhi Chen (å¼ æ™ºæˆ) made his first appearance and sang a few songs in Cantonese (duet with deejay Jack Lim). He also performed Mo Ri Zhi Lian and Ling Chen San Dian Zhong.

That's pretty much the first half of the show. Gonna upload more pics later (Part 2). Cheers!
Saw Jason Off
Saturday, September 03, 2005
I just got back from KLIA, after seeing my buddy Jason off. That guy's pursuing Actuarial Science in Canada (tell me about it, his math is damn good). WToong was supposed to come along, but FFK-ed and instead, settled for a short drop-over at his house before he left. Grrr. And I didn't know about that until I called him a to ask if he wanted to tag along. Even so, the first few calls went into his voicemail, cuz he was playing futsal. Yeah man! ;p

Anyway, I 'helped' a coupla friends send their regards and farewells. JWen said he'd feel bad if he didn't go - so the both of us went to KLIA to see the guy off. I mean, it was perfectly okay considering I was idling at home anyway. J's parents were real friendly, they remembered me as one of Jason's closest pal, which was rather sweet. It was a good thing that JWen went, too, because otherwise I doubt that I'd go alone, also :p J's mom was basically quite glad that we went, lah...

A number of friends turned up to bid him farewell, most of whom were his friends from the business he's in. His former schoolmates who went... were *drumrolls, please*... me and JWen... only *cymbals crashing*. Well, considering that the rest had already met up with him a coupla hours earlier and also the day before yesterday, it was all good lah.

J was sun-burnt, man. His vacation to Pulau Pemanggil (love that name!) left him tanned to Louis Koo-level. JWen actually said that the people in Canada may mistake J's home country for South Africa. Erm, if you know JWen well enough, you can imagine the way he said it la ;). Any black, or brown, or whatever-(color)-makes-you-happy people reading this, please take note that there's nothing racist in this post, ok?

J's dad was a lil teary-eyed when J hugged him, and uttered "You take care", which was a rather emotional sight also la *sob*. At about 12.10 past midnight, J descended the escalator towards the departure hall. It was time for us to leave... and J's parents thanked us for coming. We left shortly after... took a long, relaxed, slow drive home. J, the former school heartthrob of many young gals, is gonna slay some chicks in a foreign land, man. All the best to that guy :D.
