technically this is not a mayday concert but i feel it deserves the post-concert post as much as one =)
i was asked “who impressed u the most”. my ans was wawa! bcos she was so amazing – she’s aged – u can tell from her looks n figure – but her voice was so so good n i was amazed tt i actually knew her songs! esp 大雨. gosh i always sing 大雨就要開始不停地下 each time it looks like it’s gg to rain, n there i was listening to the original singer! she looks soooo qin qie too!
then the “asker” said her idol tarcy was the best. n i also agreed. haha. the last i saw her was probably when i was still in sec sch – n the SBS concerts in which u use bus tix to exchange for concert tix were still an annual affair. she’s SO CHIO. still looks v young! n her voice was SO STRONG. so beyond expectations!
then xin xiao qi was mentioned. n i agreed she was v good too. lol. in a nutshell, the veterans were really good. they really can sing! n i’d say rock happens to have a few of the best veterans around.
like emil chau. gosh, tt totally brought me back to the sbs concerts days. loved how the entire stadium sang along to almost all his songs.
the zzz parts were pan yue yun (sorry she’s really not my era n i really duno a single song she sang, altho obviously she has a good voice n the fact tt she was the FIRST singer rock signed made her very special), yu ke wei (eerie song to start with, nv say who she was after she intro her album, promo etc so we were trying to guess who she was, but i guess she can sing real well for a newbie), n sadly tho Kelly’s singing improved a lot, the songs she sang didn’t seem to resonate with the audience. oh n it was damn sad tt the audience treated the local singers’ segment (supposed to be ‘rock newbies’) as a toilet break. shows how supportive singaporeans r huh. (then again, given the number of non-sgreans on our soil now, perhaps they were not sgreans haha)
wu bai sang ALOT. i wish it was mayday tt sang tt much. heh. his rock is not my cup of tea. ;p
mayday. each time i see them perform it reaffirms my love for them. HAHA. so happy to see guai shou jumping ard (which means his toe dun hurt no more?) , masa playing like a madman, stone being cool-ly rock, n (my) ashin so shuai n seh, after 7 mths n 17 days. (KL concert was 5 June 2010) best of all, someone praised tt ashin sang well tonight – the first time she ever said tt he sings well. haha!
apart from the opening set with wu bai n zhang zhen yue, the 4 songs they sang during their own set were gong lang, zhi zu, wen rou n ren sheng hai hai. qt sad tt they didn’t sing the fast songs but i guess they left it to wu bai. thank u for gong lang tho. it’s like my zhu ti qu can. lol.
it was an amazing concert on many scales – kudos to the crew behind it. can imagine the logistical nightmares they must have had! it was the first time i saw 3 different top-notch bands on 1 stage at the same time, each with their own MI. damn cool!
and i’ll end off with a song tt came out when i was in pri 5 or 6. it was simply amazing to hear it sung live just now.
can’t sleep again!
it’s christmas eve. hmm. there’s only 1 person i wanna get present for but tt’s also the hardest present to get. zzz.
looking forward to meeting up with frens on mon n tues, hoping wed’s work stuff can go smoothly n be over soon n then i’m gonna nua thurs n look forward to watching kua nian on fri.
kua nian. it feels strange to be home this time of the yr. feels strange to be still working. ah well.
n i’m still v dl with miss cb. i’ll keep recalling the incident when i’m on the bus n then my mind will be filled with all sorts of evil thoughts. n i wish i was in sch so she’ll at least get detention, not like at work where she just gets away with it. it’s like, u tell the HOD but nothing is done. in sch u just hv to tell ur ft n ur ft will stand up for u.
humans r so disgusting.
i can’t sleep and don’t want to sleep
so i uploaded the pics from maldives and muar/malacca, and basically relived the two hols all over again
i’ve been heading to taiwan every end of the yr since 07 and this is the first yr i’ll actually be in sg during christmas and new yr! kinda amazing! n of cos it’s all bcos i blew my funds on maldives ;p so altho i am very dui2 tt mayday is gonna perform 1 whole hour tis yr, i know i wouldn’t have given up on the maldives trip for the world.
snorkelled till the life jacket gave me abrasion bruises and till even my butt was sunburnt. lol. dived twice and had to do mask clearing during the check dive! but the place was so beautiful it kinda gave me courage. haha..
n i guess all the photos on fb speak for themselves!
the muar trip was sth i did not really treat as a “hol”. in fact i set off with RM18 – leftovers from duno when. day 1 we went to muar town after putting our stuff in eng’s uncle’s hse. just took in the sights and then went back to the hse for bbq dinner – sth i realised had been planned on fb but i totally didn’t register! was wondering y r we bbq-ing.. ha..
nxt day went to malacca without a proper itinerary. so based on instincts and the only gps-searchable-name “jonker street” we had, we managed to make it to the “correct” touristy place! lots of food and stuff to buy next to some historical sites. ate A LOT and walked so much we were so tired.. went back to muar where they brought us to this v ulu hidden place “oasis bay” for steamboat dinner! of cos, the best part was i finally “got through” to the youngest kid (there were 3 of them!) n he actually let me feed him for a while! haha
then we actually got to sing ktv!!! in muar!! so unbelievable. it was not very user friendly but the songs were rather updated. amazing. it felt weird to be singing sad songs then kids were screaming n running ard in the background. lol.
nxt day, which is this morning.. went to hv assam fish head n bak kut teh before gg to buy the famous muar otah then head back to sg.. short but good getaway thanks to our ability to self-entertain and self-irritate each other. haha..
and now.. 5 more days of work before shut down wk nxt wk. tho still gotta go back on wed. counting down to 12 noon on 7 Jan. tt’s when the much dreaded event will finally be over. n the thought of it just took all the happy feelings away. eeks!
the 4 dives passed in a blur. total dive time 157 mins. did mask removal twice, sibei panic on the second one but got over it. bottomline: survived and passed. i is a ow diver! next up: advanced. hmm.
i missed having my frens with me though it was really fun and all. it was just, there r some things tt can only be said to certain ppl n they were not ard.
i honestly didn’t mind the teasing abt d but sth was jus missing. i had a lot more thoughts swimming in my mind tt just could not be put into words cos they would have just been treated as silliness and well, just a joke. i mean, if u did not go thru the crazy days in 02 and 03 with me i dun expect u to understand my then-infatutation. haha.
dun get me wrong, i honestly enjoyed the 3 days. the stupid jokes, the massages, the mahjong (i actually won $$! amazing!) and the general lazing around. n of cos the watermelons on the dives. ah yes n the dives themselves. which i really dun rem much cos my mind was so full of stuff even when i’m 12m underwater.
it’s just… ya i had a lot on my mind. so much tt i woke up in the middle of the night to “type” my thoughts down on my iphone. sibei siao.
ok it’s time to put those thoughts in words. on msn.
