AJL 24


Congratulations and thank you to:
Pete Teo for composing and writing "I Go" - Lovely song!
Amran Omar for translating the lovely song into "Pergi";
Aizat for his voice and perfomance.
A winner with a message!

It would be less smart if "Pergi" did not win last night. All songs were great and all performances were awesome. No offense, but it takes more to be a winner. Anugerah Juara Lagu (AJL) is not about who sings or what are you wearing or what props did you use on stage. It was a battle of music and lyric.

Pete Teo/Amran Omar/Aizat's "Pergi" was one song that touches hearts with its melody, lyric, the voice who sings it and [for last night performance] theme and creativity. A complete package if I may say. But of course, Pete Teo is the sifu when talking about unison plus creativity - Malaysian Artistes for Unity's "Here in My Home" and 15Malaysia was his project.

I must say, AJL24 was a successful in spite of everything. The idea of open competition and the domination of Indie bands and reality show stars were not that pleasing at first. But hey, last night's show wouldn't be great if not because of them. The show was full of rainbows because of them.

Can't say that AJL24 is the best AJL, but it was definitely the best so far. Love the presenter - Ally, Cheryl and FBI - they were charming! Love the theme - Origami - pretty much subjective, unique, owned specific identity and very much foldable :p Hehehe. And for the first time the juries were acceptably the correct person.


*** Undeniably, "Pergi" is a great song and together with the additional package, "Pergi" left AJL, the juries and TV3 with no option than to make it the winner. All other [great] performances shouted their identity, but "Pergi" speaks for 1Malaysia. By considering the current situation, there is not even one inch doubt that "Pergi" is what we need.

*** If I could give away an award, I'd like to give it to Faizal Tahir for is determination to perform "Bencinta" despite his health condition.

*** Sort of confuse with the crowd during Hujan's performance; plus with Noh's expression... It made me wonder whether the crowd was meant to be there, or were them a bunch of out-of-control fans.


"Pergi" reminds me to Mak… Very, very much.

Sayu terpisah
Hikayat indah kini hanya tinggal sejarah
Berhembus angin rindu
Begitu nyamannya terhidu wangian kasihmu
Hujan lebat mencurah kini
Bagaikan tiada henti
Kaulah laguku kau irama terindah
Tak lagi kudengari
Kau pergi... pergi...
Sepi tanpa kata
Terdiam dan kaku tak daya kau kulupa
Apa pun kata mereka
Biarkan kenangan berbunga di ranting usia

Goodbye Ben Jern

Oh my... another good bye. Why laaaaaaaaaa~!

Today, we bid farewell and we wish a great future to our one and only Loh Ben Jern of #BenHafiz FlyFM. Our heroes of insanity.
It's the final 30 minutes of flying with Ben's craziness... So sad! Huhuhuhuhu. Ben Jern has been on air since 10 PM last night - slumber party katanya - and I only sleep 3 hours plus, listening to him sambil kemas barang.
I know, some of you might think: "What is wrong with this girl, crying over a DJ...". Clearly, you don't know Ben, you never listen to these #FunnyBigBoys #BenHafiz and you never listen to Mrs. Boopathy and Pak Jamil or their Krappi Call. They are the only person on earth who can make Malaysians do *obviously* crazy stuff over a phone call. Hahahaha. Ben is the most adorable talking goat. LOL!

*** They are airing the Grandmother of All Krappi Call again - where Ben finally got krappi-ed *** I was laughing madly in the car earlier this morning... And then I cried. Oh it was su…

Celebrate the Love: Bones and Booth

I have exam at 2 pm today and I've been burning the midnight oil. But I really really really want to share this: Bones and Booth's wedding vow. Well sort of wedding conversation, actually.
I love them and I am happy that the characters finally get their happy ending.

To Bones, the coolest geek I ever known, and to Booth, congratulations!

Booth: "You know, I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here—look, hey, do you remember the last time that we were here, standing right around this spot? It was right in the beginning, before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you, because you were irritating me, and you chased me down and you caught up to me. I said to you, 'Listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row,' right, and then you said to me, [Brennan: "I can be a duck."]. Yeah. We had been chasing each other for a long time, been chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and sn…

Getting Out of the Slump

Sometimes I feel like crying will solve everything. When I feel like that, I know I am in the slump - "The New Moon" slump. I called it that because I am in a similar state as Bella Swan in The New Moon after Edward Cullen left her.
"It's like a huge hole has been punched through my chest."
"Normal memories were still dangerous. If I let myself slip up, I’d end up with my arms clutching my chest to hold it together, gasping for air..."
It's hard to get out from this state, but I have bounce back before. It took a lot of patience, a lot of determination, a generous amount of support, and most importantly: a strong will.
The strongest will is fueled by living up to the purpose of our creation - to submit and worship Allah.
Crying does solve everything; when you used up all your energy and cry in your solat and doa.
It is always the darkest before the new moon. And stars are the brightest during this time.

I'll find my way - I assure myse…
