Bersedia untuk menghadapi apa sahaja tekanan keadaan

Opening je Diari Akademi Fantasia, kena berdepan ngan klon Felix.. maskot Adabi yang erm.. memang promosi abis-abisan nampaknya.

Banyak kot Adabi sponsor.

Fast forward sikit, tengok Faizal kena dera ngan Umi. Erm... macho si Faizal jalan complete with a swagger like, well, you can imagine. Patutlah sampai ada yang biased kerana tergedik nak kat dia.

Terbetul tak slight bongkok dia, doesn't matter. Orang kata orang yang bongkok...erm.. oh never mind. Nanti takde berita student lain asik focus dia jer... as it is pun official website Akademi Fantasia menjadi tempat promosi Faizal. Cam lupa lak ada 9 pelajar lain kat dalam tuh... (sesekali selit sorang lagi pelajar sebab takut kena serang)

Kelas drama, they went through some basic exercises with Umi, though malas nak explain, but I think so far, Umi's classes yang paling functional sekali. I think she's able to translate the need, and comes up with an applicable syllabus yang not only is functional tapi also entertaining to watch.

Eh... Rich dan Faizal dah jadi sahabat karib ke? Bila lak dia dump Lotter? Well, I suppose friendship is fleeting with some.

Amboi, Ajai kata da aemakin serasi si Amirul. Erm... takde vibrato takde apa-apa... feel? Ok jer...

Velvet memang besh tapi shot dia rehearse spoil ngan muka Salima as usual overdose lak cam perform miming. Tak tahan jer minah ni nak erm... lantaklah.

Diddy did way better than Amirul, but still tak berjaya keluarkan suara because he still seems way too tense. At least Syafizawati and Ajai tegur, hopefully Diddy improves on it in time.
Zila? Kenapa aku rasa cam dia sakit perut tengah tahan jer dari terberak time nyanyi? It was just decent vocal presentation, if you forgive the lack of projection.

But I do admit dia leh get into the groove of the song, so that's her plus point.

Rich wat lagu Sumazau ker? Tak pasai-pasai 'melebarkan' sayap sambil menyanyi. Rich doesn't quite understand subtle, a word he can't seem to really comprehend. Bila dia chill sikit, terus tak ada feel jadi drama swasta. But sesakit dengar suara Rich, teruk lagi bila Haziq came on next.

Apa lagi? Berminggu tengok Haziq, sama jer... takde perubahan... tak ada peningkatan.
Farhan was next, but the clip was way too short to actually grab a feel of whether she was doing well for Still Got The Blues ke tak... well hopefully she does it well enough.

"Malam ini... kamu semua berpeluang untuk berhubungan..."

Jeritan cam babun terkeluar sangkar tergedik baru dapat kerja.

Lain je bunyi ek Dr. Eveready wat offer. Korang kalao otak 18SX memang leh terbayang orgy lak.

Semua dapat peluang ngan family sebenarnya, tapi semua nampak ler lepas rindu... except ler Salima AS USUAL!

Jabatan Bekalan Air over melimpah!!!

Kalau cam si Velvet ok lagi, nangis pun bersebab birthday ayah dia.

Boringgggggg!!!! But cliffhanger si Diddy dapat panggilan lak entah dari pompuan mana...herm...

Lor...lagik satu gimik. Blur gak ek si Diddy. Sebelum kuar a few lines from Biarlah Rahsia, aku rasa orang dah leh tangkap sapa on the phone.

But anyway, it was a nice surprise for him, walaupun mula-mula dia maintain macho.

Abih kuar jer dari bilik, melonjat ke'happy'an.

The contact with the family bit was stupid...simply because I don't see why these kids have to be distracted and have precious moments focusing on emotions. Into the third week, they should already know that they's almost gone one third of the journey into their stay at Akademi Fantasia (untuk beberapa orang yang lain, semkin dekat ler to bye bye kan)

But nooooooo... we love drama kan??!!! But most of the kids were pretty alright in their handling. I especially loved how Farhan's mom shared tips with the girl on improving her performance. I thought it was positive that her parents were using the call to get the best out of her...rather than nak just waste time perah airmata.

The best example of that would be who else but.. surprise... surprise.. SALIMA!
Velvet again... aku leh maap kan ler sebab besday ayah dia kan?

One thing I noticed was that seems to be a new alliance forming ala Survivor. Kalao sebelum ni Faizal and si Lotter were best buds, the new week seems to have brought on a relationship shift with Faizal getting kissy huggy with Rich.

And the new alliance seems to have other 'tribes' especially the orang asli worried, but more on that later.

What's the deal with the greeting cards from Karen dan Nora?

Mmm.. meka baru seminggu dua in the Akademi lebih dari bebudak Prelude, so big hairy deal... besides, meka akan jumpa tak lama lagi (again, more on that later)

There wasn't much development, but the focus seems to be shifting to students yang sebelum ni lum dapat spotlight.

I loved the sentimental moment from Umi with Sacrifice from Elton John playing in the background. I suppose to naked, untrained eye, it would look extremely cliche and a bit demeaning for the exposure to the flow of emotion.

But I think Umi was trying perhaps to teach them more of harnessing relevant emotions that can be applied to performances for the feel of things, considering pelajar-pelajar Akademi Fantasia semua majoriti membuat persembahan tanpa emosi dan kekayuan.

What I think was demeaning was the chauvinistic act of forcing the girls to cook!!!

Ni jadik kelas Sains Rumah Tangga ke haper???

Pelajar lelaki semua bontot berat tak tolong langsung...and si pengawas sekolah rendah leh arahkan them midway through Syafizawati's class for the girls to get cooking, and the boys can continue.

So caveman mentality.... and I think it was definitely INSULTING that womenfolk, no matter what talents prevail, are considered to be good enough only in the kitchen to cook for starving neanderthals who knock on tables demanding to be fed.

After all, if this was Akademi Seni Rumah Tangga leh la... but the fact is that ALL the kids should be taught to assume responsibility... and I doubt pelajar-pelajar lelaki learned anything from that.

Isn't there any women's organisation yang nak complain ke pasal benda camni, or has it become so embedded in our mentality that this scene could actually be funny?
Haziq nampaknya dapat ler his wish to hog the camera.

I think alomost ten minutes focused on the moka toya just wriggling around in pain salah depression.

I thought Syafizawati should have just sent si Haziq out of the class for not being prepared, but noooooo... instead, we're left with the cliffhanger ending of wondering why he's looking more moronic than usual.

Tidur awal lah malam ni... banyak keja esok...
