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.

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

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
