Konsert Akhir Akademi Fantasia 7 (Part 10)

This is the last part... the tenth and the final of my photo series of the end of the seventh season of Akademi Fantasia.

Memang sedih abih... and one of the reasons perhaps I dragged this out is so that I can relive the moments, if only in photographs.

Again, this has been of the best experiences, career wise, as I had a hand in helping out developing talents who, hopefully will one day take the music business by storm. Anything is possible, God willing.

These pics dari hari Ahad lepas. The day after the finals, where 19 of the 20 contestants (termasuk lima yang tak berjaya masuk tuh) paid a goodbye visit to the Akademi along with their families, and their loved ones.

Officially it was a handover of the kids back to their parents and families, but unofficially it was saying goodbye to ten weeks of drama, controversy, high points, laughs, tears, upsets, and various other moments. Which made for a very memorable ten weeks I might add.

One more thing that made it sadder than ever was that gudang yang diubahsuai menjadi Akademi nih dan digunakan sejak AF4, will apparently cease to be the home to Akademi Fantasia kalau ada musim kelapan, because set Akademi dengarnya akan dipecahkan selepas ini.

It will make way for a new set to belong to Anak Wayang, before Astro moves out of it.

So one chunk of four years of Akademi Fantasia history gone.

Kesedihan meyelubungi bebudak semua, despite the hot afternoon layan gila-gila pala memasing. Mana taknya, this is the last time all the kids will be staying together under one roof. After this nak jumpa with all of them together pon is a very highly improbably possiblity.

Aku sampai lambat sikit, but thank you to the guys who mentioned me for my contributions during the briefing of the tour for the family and friends.

You guys rock.

Thank you everyone, from Zainir, to Khairul, Sooraj, Jay, Irwan, Fazli, Ikha, Saha, Najib, Norbee, Ayong, Farid, Aniq, Linda, Liza, Askrul, Cyna, Puru, Melvin, Azzah, Jojie... aiyo... so many people to thank. You all know who you are... sorry kalao lupa nak sertakan nama.

Also to Sarimah for the laughs... and everyone else who either made my days there fun or simply unbearable (again you know who you are.. matilah!)

No one knows the hell gone through every day to get the show on from the production aspect of things.... and no one knows the real drama the cameras couldn't catch... apart from the tenaga pengajar in Tiara, Siti Hajar, Syafie, Aris, kak Fati, Ida... you guys know what really went on. If only these people knew the drama... heh.

But all in all... again... the memories are there for a very, very long time... and one I'll cherish. So with that.. I kick off the last batch of photos of the last moments you will ever see in this Akademi which has stood for four years.


Nana from AESB dan Yazid


Amboi... kalao Zul ada masa time Isma dalam Akademi mesti lebih semangat kan!


Rubisa making a last tour of the kitchen and dining area


Claudia nak snappy tapi ada orang enter frame... perasan sapa?


Sapa lagik kalao bukan Angelina. Qhaud pose pon ada cam tuh kat belakang


Adila dan Zizi pose for one for the album outside the dance floor (mana si Adila minggu pertama jalan tak perasan pintu kaca terhantuk kena muka.. kesian.... *gelak!*)


Akim pose depan Principal's office


Group photo! Heh... perasan tak Hafiz pegang Akim Punya sign tuh atas Aishah


Ida dan Yazid menggila pose sakan


Aishah takes one in the vocal room


Aril gets a family pic taken


Aril tayang trofi dia... aku nya lagik besar ok! Heh!


Hafiz thumbs up tempat meka melantak dulu


Family photo!


Motor Akim


This wall used to have all their pictures. Last I saw it kosong sebab everyone took their pics for kenangan


Where I had my first class with the kids.. time tuh panas gila sesi luahan perasan memasing pasal kengkawan dalam Akademi


Last class. I remember it was about body language and facial gestures during interviews


Akim touring the control room. Baru meka tau set up sampai camnih


Rini dan Nana lepak sambil layan ulangan final from malam sebelom. Eh ibu Akim pon ada


Akim seronok lak layan time meka tunjuk Menuju Puncak semua 14 orang keluar


Zul dan Isma di 'halau' balik cepat tuk laksanakan tugas rumahtangga. Heh!


Akim leaving the Akademi


Watching the boys pack up in the boys' hostel. Sidi, Qhaud dan Zizi gelak apa tuh


Yazid dan Aril having a last chat before the goodbyes


And a last dance... don't ask...


Alahai... pose romantic malu gituh. Entah Sidi ke Obri yang cakap.. RM10,000 tuh wang hantaran! Amik ko!


Dalam gelak sebelom tu... ada yang sedih... you can see Yazid has left much memories with Zizi... and his name


Takyah tengok phone agik. Da abih da AF


Burok nya perangai Obri... bajet cute la tuh (matilah aku!)


So goodbye Akademi...
