Congrats to my fellow RPI capoeiristas..Recently they had a batizado and 3 of them got new cordao! Kudos to Ioio (2nd from left) for his Crua Amarela, Girafa (4th from left) and Palito (3rd from right) for their Amarela cords..I’m not surprised that Palito would straight away got the Amarela from Crua since he’s so into capoeira and I salute him for his skills in music. I wish I was there with you guys! Congratulations again!

another demo

21 May

dont know what to write today..couldnt sleep well last night because of the stupid nyamuk (mosquitoes) and heat..so i’m thinking of the next big project my friend just got. demo/show for malacca street carnival next week. I’m quite broke right now and dont know if i could make it. this time the demo would be an hour for 3 days..so i would say its quite worth it to come down to malacca again for 3 days of demo compared to before which was only 10mins.i dont mind how many minutes it is actually coz i enjoy doing the demo but when thinking about the budget and time, it sometimes not worth it.

oh and i havent been fit for this past few weeks..how to do a demo in an hour..i’ll be dead by then..tula sape suro xjogging~adoi..but if i got the chance to use the gym in terendak camp, i’d be able to recover by the time of the demo..hehe, guess so..but that if i could go there on friday then i’ll have a few days to train. so what now? i dont know..still havent made up my mind..but definitely i’ll help dan out with the demo..

updates!!

17 May

So whats with the astro trip? A senior of mine from uniten is participating in a game show held by that famous television broadcaster called Jangan Lupa Lirik. is this suppose to be a secret for now? can i say it here actually?..well, the game is basically just as the title said, dont forget the lyrics. it was my first time going to a recording and i would say it was quite memorable; both in good and bad ways.

In a good way, i got to know how behind the scene production works and how a program is made..and from my point of view, its better to watch the program on tv rather than watching one on recording..it is such a pain in the butt, literally..haha coz if u’re the audience, u have to sit during the whole recording time, and it is not just 30mins like the one we see on tv, it could take one whole day or days to finish.anyway, it would be more fun if the participant is someone we knew. oh by the way, one of my dream has now become true, which is, seeing aznil’s thick make up live! HAHA 😛 but anyway, he’s good and friendly, just like what his fans said.

I also got to know some new people and made friends too.. as usual i’m quite friendly with strangers..hehe..

And enough about astro. so now comes my malacca story. There was actually a show for teacher’s day in afiq’s school (dan’s student). because it was going to be on a weekday, none of dan’s other students could help for they would be in school at the time of the demo so i willingly offered myself to help out..hehe i always love demos n workshops!

Last time i took KTM Commuter to Seremban now i decided to take a bus coz it would be much easier. so off i went to malacca at 12.30pm from puduraya station. well, that was just the beginning of quite an interesting journey of mine.

I arrived at masjid tanah bus station at around 2.30pm. Dan picked me up and straight away brought me to his friend’s salon for my hair highlighting process..hehe saje nk highlight my hair lg, now with brighter color than before, i chose red-violet! anyway, i do realize that it will turn to brown eventually..and I got special price for it which is much much cheaper than it is in KL. at first I was quite satisfied with her job but after waking up the next morning, i realized that it seemed not as good as the one i did in kl few months ago-the color of the dye and my natural haircolor was not so even and the stripes could only be seen on the surface. anyway, i can still forgive it as it really gave me a lesson. next time, if it is not a professional salon, you have to know what you really want and let the hairdresser know what look you want to have. I’ve never been unsatisfied after going to the salon i used to go in KL sentral. Anyway, I do appreciate what she has done on my hair. Whatever it was, this isnt the ‘highlight’ of the story.

So the morning of the demo, i had to wake up as early as 7am..i usually wake up at 9 or 10am at my aunt’s house..the demo started at 9am but got there (SK Terendak it is) at 8am for some warm ups and rehearsal by our own. As my friend Danny is a shy person, I had to do the introduction. The intro was held just to kill time for it would be tiring to do a 10min demo with only 3 people. so bla, bla bla i went and its time for the demo. the kids all looked excited and couldnt wait for the real action!

(I’ll put the video up when it is ready.) so after the show, we were escorted by some teachers to the canteen for some treat. little did we know that we’d be followed by the kids. well, they followed danny actually. he was the artist. as i walked along with this one cute little boy,

boy: saya pnah tgk abg ni.(i’ve seen him before)

me: ye ke?kat ne? (really? where?)

boy: kat dlm tv.

me: hmm, patutla..(hmm, no wonder)..(yea he was on ntv7 in aiyoh! last month)

we then ate breakfast at the canteen, and sat in the teachers’ eating area. some kids were mingling outside the room, waiting for us, Dan specifically, to finish. Right after we finished, the kids rushed towards Danny and asked for the autograph..I started to laugh and we (auntie izan, afiq and i) left him alone with them and waited for a while. Oh at that time, we were also giving away the fliers and they used it to get Dan’s autograph. we were besieged by them too..but then the kids didnt stop coming so we decided to cut it off..acting like a bodyguard to Danny, i had to gently chase them away and brought Danny to the other place.

And i thought that would be it. we walked towards the assembly area and i felt someone held on to my bag pack. i turned around and a cute lil girl was smiling at me. As usual being friendly me, i stopped and talked to her. She seemed shy so i provoked him with a lot of questions. so we walked together. oh and it got even worse when we sat down near that area. the kids kept asking me about the fliers and i said i will only give to those who are really interested to join the art because we didnt have enough copy for everybody. I took the fliers out of my bag and in no time, they surrounded me.i know that they just wanted the fliers for dan’s autograph. i tried hard to calm them but failed. i moved to the nearest bench where a teacher sat hoping that they would calm down when seeing their teacher. still, the situation couldnt be controlled. they wanted the papers so bad! i could see a few little ones were knocked down and cried for help. they were so helpless coz the other kids from behind kept pushing and pushing. i got so worried. worried if they got injured. i just threw the papers away and quickly saved the ones who had fallen. fortunaely, none of them got injured..fuh! that was so unpredictable .Told ya, it was like being an artist, being the crowd attraction. and finally, the situation was under controlled.

while sitting there, smiling and sometimes talking to the kids who stared at us, the boy i spoke earlier to came to me,

boy: kak..

me: ye..eh awk yg tadi kan..

boy: (senyum) nk autograph boleh?

me: ha? (senyum) saye x masuk tv la dik cam abang tu..xpayahla..

boy: xpe, nak jugak..

me: btul? hehe..ok

boy: (bagi kertas)

me: name ape? (menulis and sign) ok nah.

boy: time kasih…

and then suddenly, more kids came for my autograph!!! hahaha..it was seriously funny to me but i’d like to thank them for giving me a glimpse moment to feel like an artist. oh they even asked me to sign on a dollar (rm1) note..

boy2: kak, sign atas ni kak..

me: duit? ni mak awak kasi duit belanja, awk suro saye sign..sian mak awk..

boy2: xpe, sign je..

me: sape name? haa, pasni frame tau duit ni, jgn ilangkan..(tulis n sign)..ade duit belanje x ni pasni?

boy2: ade2..time kasih..
