Overdue.My triple joy.



Hutang entry memang da lama kan? Sori ler...bukan apa. Sibuk teramat. Read ler this entry sampai habis kalao tak caya, Seksa ok nak update entry ni sebab banyak sangat, so I'll just kind of gloss over what happened since Saturday.

Of course the whole day didn't go anywhere, conserve energy tidur seharian sebab malam tuh AIM. So leh agak ler my routine for the next couple of days.

Tunggu si Shahrill join, sebab dia tengah exam final, so kesian lak....stress study, baik gi rehatkan minda sikit layan show dari nak dok holed up at home ngan buku je.

Walaupon presentation dia tak abih katanya yang nak deliver pagi buta esoknya.
Heh...suka tau last minute. Best sebab Shahrill tunjuk benda dia pakai tuk magic dia yang terbaru yang memang susah nak dapat kat sini. Sib baik da tau trick ko...kalao tak naya je tertipu aku.

Sampai kat PWTC, we headed in just about time and took our seats. Not too bad...smack right in the centre with one of the best views of the stage. Yang pentingnya, aku da ada tiga invites, satu bagik Ted, dua lagik terbazir camtuh jer.

The first thing aku spotted of interest was this...on the left.
Itu dia rambut Reshmonu sempena Visit Malaysia Year yang diinspirasikan oleh bunga manggar!

Absolutely hilarious! But props to you Resh for the balls to appear different. And great show too.

Speaking of show, kali ni AIM cam takde ummphhh!!! lak for some reason.

I mean, timing ok..well paced, shows weren't as horrible as I thought.
Still.. entahlah. Tak semegah yang aku harapkan.

The one show wrth loking frward to was Anuar Zain for sure.

Kalao dak pengkritik kat Akademi Fantasia kata an average presentation is a perfect 10, amacam Anuar lak?

Aku rasa kalao camni...si Anuar is 100 over 10 ler sebab it was simply beautiful. Walaupon there was something dodgy going on with the music because the levels were kind of screwed with the orchestra occasionally drowning out his vocals.

Still it was one of the magical moments which was powerful enough to capture the audience.

Apart from Anuar's show, there was few worth mentioning. Mawi dan Ramli Sarip was awesome too.... the closing was cliched, ngan Double Trouble taking the stage. Kira power gak ler tapi bosan ler sebab da standard sangat da meka nak rock reunions ni can shake people up.
Did I forget the set of divas? Well...first of all, lagu Bermula Di Sini was the wrong choice of song to share between four big vocals. Hasilnya?

Jac, yang memang vocal meletop grabbed the spotlight without even being trying.

Siti and Aishah were reduced to being backing vocals, while I found Noryn just irritating...because she was screeching all over the place trying to outdo Jac but failing miserably.

Kira ok jer ler. Better yet actually was the medley Artis Baru Terbaik. Forget Izwan Pilus, Fazli Zainal dan eve nt he overrated Sean Ghazi.

Aku bangga ngan Bob sebab he was easily the best vocals among the five nominated names. Farhan too did quite well, enough to stand by Bob.

Sapa kata reality TV can't produce talents, though this isa thing of the past judging by musim kelima.

Bab bekas pelajar ni, of course Mawi pun rocked the stage. Sayang je Zahid tak dapat perform...stakat present. Takpe...last year dah...next year kang album baru kuar kang..we see you again onstage ek.

Show M. Nasir? Opening yang tak kena. It was nice and all, but somehow it seemed kind of weird to see him wear pink and bounce along ngan those dancers yang look like they were part of a third rate drag ensemble.

Ok ler...tapi aku rasa kalao in terms of explosiveness, patutnya meka letak je Mawi dan Ramli Sarip sebab lebih hebat...
Daripada segi lain...erm...it was nice to see them cut short the acceptance speeched supaya tak lari timing slot AIM tahun ni.
Kalau tak kan biasa meleret sampai entah brapa lama.

Still, at times it looked rather unprofessional sebab hampir semua penerima anugerah cam kena cut off in their moment of glory.
The presenters semua bias aje...nothing great, but thank goodness meka kept to script if nothing else. Takde ler lawak bangang yang membuang masa.

The hosts itself?
Syukur ler si Bob Lokman tak bersora banyak sangat and he was kept to a minimum...kalao tak pening nak layan. Afdlin yang biasanya best gila, subdued dan seolah takde skrip.

Adibah Noor jer ok. Tu pun boleh lah...sebab dia ni memang naturally quirky kan. Rasanya kalao tahun depan, Adibah sendiri pun mampu carry on with the show on her own.

Erm...yang asik dok promo Sumo, aku ok jer sebab hopefully it will be one of Afdlin's best films, tapi tak perlu ler sangat.
Banyak agik filem dan album slalu kuar, takkan sebab Afdlin jadik host nak plug for most of the releases....or any releases for that matter. No offense Flin....it just wasn't on, tapi da rezeki ko bro. All these years of holding AIM together, I suppose they do owe it to you.

Bab kemenangan...memang ada kejutan, cam si Ahmadi Hassan menang Best Nasyid Album (bukan apa, tapi album Qasidah, Berzanji dan Doa Berlagu is the best nasyid album this year), Siti kalah Best Vocal Performance In An Album (Female) lepas dominasi menang back to back for eight years (tapi Jac menang pon ok) ... a few shockers here and there.

But happy gak sebab Siti menang Best Pop album. Aku happy sebab aku masa dulu review pun aku da kata, it was one of the best albums for the year, and at least it's proven when she went on to win Album Of The Year sekaligus.

Satu je award aku nak gelak cam buang masa (selain Best Ethnic Pop Album sebab ada dua je pencalonan, which is the Best Indonesian Album.

Kenapa sembilan dari sepuluh kali artis Indo yang dijemput hadir, mesti menang?

Cam plan jer. Ke da dijanji menang kalao meka menghadirkan diri? Who knows?

Boleh jer la Samsons ni. No skin ff my back pun meka menang.

Lepas abih je persembahan terakhir aku dan Shahrill rush downstairs to the post party... sebab malas kang everyone make an exit at once. So gerak ler dulu. Lagikpon kebulur ni. Kang lambat sampai, makan pon tak,nak keja interview sana sini pun menyukarkan je.

Was among the first to reach, and just as Shahrill sat down nak makan, aku spotted Siti masuk. Hah...jarang ok Siti grace post party events. Tak nampak husband tersayang dia, but takper.

Sempat ler talked a bit (see...told you kan Siti?). This is one of the few times, aku honestly leh kata she totally deserved the award. Siti pun cam happy semacam. Mana taknya...the albumis the first product of Siti Nurhaliza Productions... baby dia lr katakan...so mesti bangga hasil pertama tuh membuahkan hasil dan diiktiraf.

Time ni ler aku leh see everyone closer for what they wore, so leh ler usha sapa pakai baju cantik dan sapa yang azab.

Aku rasa yang paling happening...dan sexy skali fr the night...taklain tak bukan... Amy Search ler. Kalah ok th rest of the women. Merasalah la ko Amy dedah sana sini...heh! Kalah Syafinaz pun ok!

Erm...rambut rebonding ke?

No way Jose. tetap berketak ok.

The worst dressed?

Mmm...there were a lot of horrible outfits there. Kat dari Mentor cam jantan in drag lak ngan overdose extension rambut dan sebagainya. Sarat sangat...sakit mata tengok dia.

But the winner hands down for the most horrific get-up has to be Dina.
Too yellow la gurl.... cam Big Bird from Sesame Street pun ada.

Let's repeat this little mantra, "less is more!"

Got news terkini dari konsrt Akademi Fantasia. Masa tuh dok ngan Bob dan Fitri with Ramli M.S. nearby. The word spread fast...

Didn't stay the whole night. Being claustrophobic aku pun ajak Shahrill to have supper elsewhere after I was done with work.

Lost him no less than FOUR times. Rupanya, dia ni asik hilang, sebab asik dok kena tarik ngan orang. Apa lagik kalao kena tarik.

Wat magic show jer ler jawabnya. Heh...sabar jer ler...camtuh ler kalao orang da kenal.
Took a few pictures here and there tapi generally spent the night gabbing away until si Shahrill was done amusing people with a few tricks. Among his audience was bebudak security yang terhibur gila ngan dia. Amik ko.

Dalam ganas suka gak magic ek.

Sapa kata bebudak je.... all the way out, ada lak peminat nak dia wat magic dan sebagainya.

Aduh...this is going to take forever.

Oh...back to the pictures, kang aku tunjuk sikit lower a bit ek...finish story dulu.
Meanwhile, feast your eyes on these of antara kuarga Akademi Fantasia yhang hadir (Mawi balik immediately after so tak dapat nak bump into him.



Moved on to Bukit Bintang for supper. Was joined by Ted, Vernon (yang dok cerita tak abih betapa heat si Dafi kalao ikut laporan meka yang ada dalam deqan - propah je keja), Rudy, Judd and friend as well as Juan and friend.

Lepas melantak, kena lagik satu round si Shahrill ni nak wat magic tuk kanak-kanak Ribena ni.

Tak cukup satu dua illusions, siap kena explain camna buat (mana leh!)

Tengok si Shahrill ni (curi pic dari Judd). Seronok beriya dapat wat show, walaopn show pree jer ngan bebudak nih yang dra dia trick after trick.

But he was ever obliging and amazed everyone aku rasa for ovr an hour. Banyak lak neverending request nak ajar...but of course the magicians code and all.

One of the best things to see live, is the spoon bend yang dia gosok near the stem of the spon, dan sudu tuh mula membengkk sendiri. That's something that loks awesome live.

Not to mention yang spoon yang or fork yang twisted tuh.

That's massively freaky ok.

Tapi yang pentingnya, pas da buat kena sorok lak garpu yang jadik mangsa tuh, sebab takde magic yang nak betulkan balik bengkang bengkok garpu tuh. Matila tak pasal pasal kang kena caj lebih sebab rosakkan utensil orang.

Kenapa?

Tak caya ek?

Korang kalau tune in Fuyoo Magic every Tuesday, at 10.30pm (tolong promosi program dia) mesti da penah tengok dia buat.

But seeing it live is totally different. It works more ler in front of your eyes because you know it really is happening.

Nak tengok akibat magic si Shahrill ni?

Ni dia... tak pasal pasal ler garpu ni jadik mangsa... heh... kalau tengok pic Shahrill kat atas tuh, tu the fork befoe it was mangled by Shahrill's 'telekinetic' powers.

Tu dia...bukan bengkok sikit sikit ok...tu trick biasa, Ni siap cam da kena pulas!
Had a fun night, that was sure, and a great close to the weekened... or so I thought. Si Rudy ajak aku sekali ngan dia ke assignment dia esok. I said I'd think about it sebab I didn't really have anything planned pun.

Nanti...next entry aku tulis tuk apa...tired out as all helll. Just enjoy th few more pics I took.
