Caramu...dan caranya berbeza!

I will start posting ni ngan pic ni. Kalao korang tanya apa pic ni...then look a little closer.


Yeap.

This is not any restaging of any musical. Ni masa dry run untuk rehearsal Nikki untuk lagu Caramu bersama Zahid malam Khamis in preparation for Muzik Muzik, semifinal Pop Rock.

Salah satu sebab aku kesibukan nak update blog, selain dari kurang sihat after being back here, as well as nak lepas rindu kat sayang aku, of course ler sebab sibuk membantu tuk persiapan persembahan kedua adik aku malam ni.

Aku tatau ler berapa ramai yang suka dan sokong lagu Caramu, tapi personally, kami semua yang terlibat harap persembahan Caramu will just rock your socks off.

On Tuesday night, the first rehearsal to be held in a proper dance studio at Akarkarya was held (sebelum ni kat an apartment in Bangsar) seminggu sebelum aku ke Mauritius.

And the amount of work that went in...memang gila.

Speaking of preparations, I know this is way off topic, tapi nak bagik fashion tips pada meka yang fashionanly challenged. Look at the picture to the right as an example ok.

Now you KNOW you're a FASHION DISASTER if your belt matches your umbrella, especially when it's cheap and loud PVC yellow ala Phua Chu Kang punya boots ok!

Seriously...are you that bad off when it comes to determining that something looks atrocious?!!!

Saw this horrendous excuse for a slave to fashion masa gi Sungei Wang just two days ago and it was all I could do not to snap her pic and post it in here walaupon ayang aku bising kata jangan...tak baik.

Keji ok!

Erm...ok ok. Back to actual preparations we were talking about as in dance rehearsals for Caramu on Tuesday night

Dari kul 9 malam, hingga 2 pagi, Nikki and her four fly girls bersungguh nak prepare tuk a tight presentation of some slick moves courtesy of Boboy, the same choreographer yang ilhamkan tarian tuk Drama ketika Anugerah ERA.

Zahid popped in about 1am, to just know his position sebab dia relax sikit since it's a featuring and we are going simple in terms of the performance of Caramu.

Takyah cliche male and female lead nak work out steps together ler...nak dance around each other etc.

The theme?

Ghetto fabulous!

And with a touch army green, it's going to be hard and yet effeminate, just like the steps yang energetic tapi memerlukan kelembutan.

Ni some of the rehearsal pics.

Memang fun abih ler the session even though meletihkan sebab it was intensive, but at the end of it, the girls had nailed it down. I don't want to give too much away, tapi korang kena lah tengok imej Nikki yang lain kali nih.

And if you all loved the dance for Drama (kalau korang ada kat stadium yer, bukan cilakak punya sial punya angle hasil cameraman yang bertugas ketika Anugerah ERA), then you guys will love this one too.

Anyway, ni pic tuk warga ZA8FC...erm...of Zahid tengah sibuk SMS sambil sakitkan ati aku tayang beg Gucci dia. Argh!!!

Zahid mana LV ko! Aku nak aku nak aku nak!!!

Keji tau posing bag sakan....sudeh! Mangga Dua! Oops...akibat dengki!

Anyway, after the rehearsal, happy gaban sebab everyone dari dancers to Nikki and Zahid puas ati and confident ler ngan segala usaha they put into the show. Everyone I suppose is stressed to some amount, tapi yerlah...kita da buat apa yang terdaya, skang tengok nasib je whether it all pulls together tomorrow and a little bit of luck to see whether rezeki menyebelahi Nikki dan Zahid je.

Me? I have my own predictions, tapi sebab aku pun belong in this camp for now, I am avoiding from making my choices. Don't want to jinx anything. Dapat ke tak...tu out of our hands.

Janji...everyone says the show meletop! Which I'm sure it will.

Aku tenang bila tengok chemistry antara Nikki dan Zahid...after rehearsal both of them broke into an impromptu duet...mmm...ni ada peluang nak wat duet agik ni. Dahler sudah ada tuan pengurus di depan...pepandai ler ek nilaikan.

Anyway...moving on...tengok pic sebelah. Korang rasa kaki yang mana yang paling seksi!!!

If you guys said the one in the shorts and with the golden heels tuh, then you guys should know tuh ler kaki Boboy si choreographer.

Hah amik ko!

How professional can you get. Steps dia begitu menakutkan bebudak pompuan yang da kena amaran kena menari pakai kasut tumit tinggi (Nikki herself will be wearing four inch heels) and not sneakers or flats like most singer usually do for the added effect masa dance. So much so bebudak pompuan and Nikki herself pada mulanya felt it was not possible.

So after they put in the hard work to try anyway, Boboy put his money where his mouth is, and danced along with them...IN HEELS!

THAT'S COMMITMENT for you!

Anyway, the stress has not lessened. Two days kat Sri Pentas 2, Plaza Alam Sentral and I am also kind of tense. Mana taknya, camtuh ler competition. You have to out-psycho orang lain nak idop, tapi bertanding ngan semua kawan dan kenalan tuh yang susah tuh sebab you want it to be friendly. Things are after all easier, nasty.

Balik topik Plaza Alam Sentral sat ek...melencong sat je ni...this complex is really freaky.

I mean no matter how many coats of garish and loud red paint they plaster it with kan...it just seems simply hopeless.

Take for example how all the lifts, save one set, seem to be working. Nak naik Sri Pentas 2 nak kena naik escalator kalao susah sangat...aiyo...sampai tingkat lima tuh....

And this little thing I caught on my camera. Security camera pun takleh harap. Why the hell is it titled to the air vent? Takut ada orang curi grill air vent tuh ke???

One more day...just today je kena layan agik and I won't have to go there till the next event that I can't withdraw from.

Back to Muzik Muzik, ari nih punya rehearsal semangat sebab EVERYONE involved dalam kategori Pop Rock hadir, making this the first run yang everyone was present compared to the previous two days.

Dalam sibuk-sibuk, rupanya ada artis yang sempat beriadah.

Amik ko si Mawi dan Zahid sempat tuh melayan Playstation. Aku tak pasti sapa yang bak punya, but they were later joined by bebudak RuffEdge yang do battle skali.

Aiyak...

So much for hard work and dedication. Tapi I suppose meka pun nak unwind so takper ler....Everyone else seemed either pretty jittery or somehow resigned to the fact that nothing they can do can change the outcome of the competition.

Team Pinky Nikki was in full force with hair and make-up trials done and follow up rehearsals after the full dress rehearsal was done. Let's hope everyone is happy with the result.

Sebelum I end this entry, nak gak aku sebutkan di sini, kredit pada teman-teman gossip dari TV3, kak Kelly, Huda dan Ayong yang join pot luck gossip. Dah sebut nama dah kan nih...so kena rajin rajin masuk blog aku baca. Mana tau aku carut korang ke....(the evilest laugh possible!)

Apapun, whatever the outcome tonight, I hope semua peminat Nikki and Zahid, and of Caramu, akan cheer on, menjerit sekuat hati dan berikan sokongan if you guys are in Sri Pentas 2 malam ni...ok?!!!

And pray that Caramu akan layak ke Anugerah Juara Lagu ke 21 yang akan datang. Good luck too pada semua kawan-kawan lain bertanding.... see you guys di sana...disana...disana...

By the way...thanks sayang for helping out today, and also being so understanding of how sibuk I am these past few days. Not to mention me time to come online sampai berapa jam nak update blog aku yang utang entry tak abih-abih nih....love you, babe!

Everyone...cheer on ok for Caramu, 9.30pm over TV3 tonight!
