My weekend was pretty fulfilling, how about yours? I actually attended a Chinese concert on Saturday night thanks to the free ticket that Ivan got from his mad drinking skills haha. There was this Asian Music Festival organised by Tiger Beer concert which was held in Sunway Lagoon and I was among the 40,000 people who attended the concert. Again, I was having a major awkward moment because I was there with Ivan and his entire family. I can't even explain how crazy awkward I felt on that day...it seems like I'm this outsider just following them from behind. But like I've said, you can't always run away from awkward situation so the best thing to do is to just deal with it. But still, I appreciate the kindess of my friend for even thinking of inviting me to the concert. So, much thanks! I'm actually kind of lost in translation during the concert because I only knew two of the performers, Beyond and LMF. Beyond is Hong Kong's rock legends. Knew them since I was in primary school because I've a cousin who was a big fan of the band. In the states you have Bon Jovi and Aerosmith, well in HK you have Beyond. But the only famous Beyond song that I knew is 海闊天空 (Hai Kuo Tian Kong) and the rest of their songs, I've totally no idea. Sorry for being ignorant but I didn't grew up listening to Beyond when I was young :P But it was still nice to see 2 of the original members in flesh. Wished they did perform 海闊天空 though. There were some performers at the concert that I only get to know from watching their MVs during those karaoke sessions that I went together with my Chinese friends. But then, I don't really listen to their songs either.
The night was packed with people and standing up for 4 hours was really tiring. I was pretty dehydrated but I didn't really wanna spend RM5 for a bottle of mineral water! So, we left before the concert comes to an end and had luk luk for dindin instead. On Sunday morning, I had to wake up extra early (6am to be exact) and head over to St. Ignatius Church to help the youths to sell breakfast in the cafeteria. I haven't seen some of the church youths since last church camp that I attended almost half a year ago...wow, that was pretty long. Had fun helping out despite the lack of sleep that I get from the night before. The booth that I was asked to help was the nasi lemak and roti canai booth. I didn't expect a lot of church-goers will drop by for breakfast but the turn up was good! Even finished selling the roti canai :D This reminded me so much of selling hot dogs and fries in a little caravan during Boxing Day in Wanganui, where they held the Cemetery Circuit event annually. Yes, motor racing at the cemetery circuit! Awesome much?
Went home after that and slept for the rest of the afternoon. I woke up in the evening and got so lazy to even make dinner and shower because I was too caught up with surfing the net pffft. This week, will be another battle to face. There are meetings to attend, students to call, stuffs to pack, things to design and oh...income tax. Got to tackle that down too. My REAL motivation to handle all these is to keep in mind that I am going back to KK in 9 days. Hwaiting!
|Beyond still has it!|
|1. Roti Canai (haven't had that in a while hmm) 2. My partners in crime|
3. The chaos 4. Talented musicians :D
And now, comes the time where I will spam you with another Big Bang video!!! This was their recent performance in Inkigayo (Korean chart show). They performed Bad Boy and Fantastic Baby but didn't win in the end :( SHINee won but it's okay because I like SHINee too :)
So many things I like about this video:
1. The Givenchy clothes! So nice I LOVE it, especially GD's headscarf. The intricate patterns are nice too!
2. Whenever the camera focuses on GD, he smiles and I melt hahahaha
3. TOP. His eyes, his hair, his wink, every single thing.
4. The song, obviously.
5. Seungri's red pants and Daesung's gold pants!
6. Taeyang's energy when he's performing.
