about making mistake

havent got the luxury of time to update you guys on PGLM3, been busy with the rehearsal, this season i wont be on stage but i am still with the family because this season i will be helping Dato Zahim as his assistant, i hope to gain and learn as much from him in directing! 

in the meantime, i got this from a dear family member of mine and somehow it relates to us... i want to share this story with you...

"Life is about correcting mistakes"


Monica married Rajesh this day. At the end of the wedding party, Monica's mother gave her a newly opened bank saving passbook. With Rs.1000 deposit amount.
Mother: 'Monica, take this passbook. Keep it as a record of your marriage life. When there's something happy and memorable happened in your new life, put some money in. Write down what it's about next to the line. 

The more memorable the event is, the more money you can put in. I've done the first one for you today. Do the others with Rajesh.When you look back after years, you can know how much happiness you've had.'

Monica shared this with Rajesh when getting home. They both thought it was a great idea and were anxious to know when the second deposit can be made.

This was what they did after certain time:
- 7 Feb: Rs.100, first birthday celebration for Rajesh after marriage
- 1 Mar: Rs.300, salary raise for Monica
- 20 Mar: Rs.200, vacation trip to Bali
- 15 Apr: Rs.2000, Monica got pregnant
- 1 Jun: Rs.1000, Rajesh got promoted
..... and so on... 
However, after years, they started fighting and arguing for trivial things.They didn't talk much. They regretted that they had married the most nasty people in the world.... no more love...Kind of typical nowadays, huh?

One day Monica talked to her Mother:
'Mom, we can't stand it anymore. We agree to divorce. I can't imagine how I decided to marry this guy!!!'
Mother: 'Sure, girl, that's no big deal. Just do whatever you want if you really can't stand it. But before that, do one thing first. Remember the saving passbook I gave you on your wedding day? Take out all money and spend it first. You shouldn't keep any record of such a poor marriage.'

Monica thought it was true. So she went to the bank, waiting at the queue and planning to cancel the account.
While she was waiting, she took a look at the passbook record. She looked, and looked, and looked. Then the memory of all the previous joy and happiness just came up her mind. Her eyes were then filled with tears. She left and went home.

When she was home, she handed the passbook to Rajesh, asked him to spend the money before getting divorce.
The next day, Rajesh gave the passbook back to Monica. She found a new deposit of Rs.5000. 
And a line next to the record: 'This is the day I notice how much I've loved you thru out all these years. How much happiness you've brought me.'

They hugged and cried, putting the passbook back to the safe. 
I don't know how much they saved .I believe the money did not matter any more after they had gone thru all the good years in their life.

"When you fall, in any way, Don't see the place where you fell,
Instead see the place from where you slipped.
Life is about correcting mistakes."

about Stephen Rahman-Hughes and Starmaker Bootcamp

Starmaker Boot camp is back for another stimulating season to invigorate your musical senses!

Enfiniti Productions, the team that brought you Puteri Gunung Ledang The Musical (PGLM) and P. Ramlee The Musical, is organizing the musical theatre workshop again from 15th to 30th November 2008. Leading the “Boot camp” is none other than West End star Stephen Rahman-Hughes, who plays the lead role of Hang Tuah in Puteri Gunung Ledang The Musical. Assisting Stephen is Matt Cross who has worked closely with Stephen in the West End. Stephen and Matt have a combined professional experience of over 30 years in the entertainment industry, both working extensively in film, television, West End theatre (where both have starred in leading roles) and the music industry. Both also have extensive dance backgrounds.

The "Boot camp" will be a two-week, intensive performing arts workshop. Over the two-week course, the focus will be on improving the skills within the three disciplines of acting, singing and dance. The course will be looking at the technical aspect of each discipline. During the two weeks, the students will be encouraged to work towards a deeper, more truthful connection in each performance whether it be through song, acting or dance. “We will be teaching the do's and don'ts of the industry, passing on our knowledge and working with each individual to build confidence,” says Stephen.

Enfiniti will be sending several individuals who recently auditioned for Puteri Gunung Ledang the Musical Season 3 to attend the “Boot camp” to prepare them for the ‘real thing’ as part of the ensemble in PGLM 3. The boot camp will also be relevant for professional singers, actors or dancers who are looking for the next curve in their careers. “It’s such a competitive world out there and only those who keep up with change and continue to improve themselves will stand the test of time. Besides, you haven’t come full circle as a performer if you haven’t done musical theatre!” says Tiara Jacquelina, Managing Director of Enfiniti, Executive Producer and lead actress of PGLM. Tiara adds, “As for aspiring talent, this workshop will give you a very good idea of what to expect during rehearsals, and how to equip and 'position' yourself for a career in musical theatre.” Tiara will also be sharing her experiences and knowledge of the industry with the boot campers.

The program for the Boot camp will be skewed towards Puteri Gunung Ledang The Musical, taking examples of scenes, songs and dance choreography from the musical. Participants who did not audition for PGLM may even be considered for a part in the ensemble, depending on their performance during the Boot camp. Overall, these two weeks aim to give each student a specific and detailed experience and to give them tools to carry into their careers as performers whilst having lots of fun.


STARMAKER: Musical Theatre Bootcamp
Participants may be naturally talented individuals who wish to sharpen their skills and abilities. Individuals may have professional or non-professional stage experience.

about PGLM3 and RHB

RHB BANKING GROUP BRINGS PUTERI GUNUNG LEDANG THE MUSICAL SEASON 3 BACK TO KUALA LUMPUR

In support of the local performing arts, the RHB Banking Group brings the hit musical production, Puteri Gunung Ledang the Musical (PGLM), back to the Malaysian entertainment scene come February 2009. Back by popular demand, this will be the third season of the PGLTM in the country. The previous two seasons had received overwhelming response from avid performing arts fans and the general public alike.

“Puteri Gunung Ledang the Musical proved to be a national phenomenon when it was staged here in Kuala Lumpur, twice, in 2006 and it went on to create a stir on the Singaporean shores later in the year. The secret, I believe, lies in the familiar storyline with a very rich cultural heritage that was brought to life by the superb, flawless performance by a team of highly talented entertainers from the local theatre scene. RHB is proud to be able to bring back this production not only for those who have an aesthetic appreciation for the arts and cultural heritage, but also for our clients as a way of thanking them for their continuous support towards the Group,” said Michael J. Barrett, the Group Managing Director of the RHB Banking Group.

When asked about PGLM’s return, Tiara Jacquelina, who holds the lead role of Puteri and is the Executive Producer, said, “It’s wonderful knowing you have the best of the best working together on your team, and all of them challenging themselves to do better. We have a great synergy amongst us, great respect and admiration for each other’s work, and each of us continuously energizes the other, that’s something you can’t plan for – it’s either there or it’s not. The Arts is a powerful unifying force amongst people and with the growing support and generosity of patrons of the Arts like RHB, the public can develop their appreciation of the Arts, which is integral to the soul of any country.”

“We have enjoyed tremendous success from this production, and we are very excited to be able to bring it back for a third season. We are also very pleased to be able to collaborate with the RHB Banking Group for this season; it brings to mind that regardless of how much has evolved in this fast-paced, industrialized society, the love of the arts is still very much alive,” said Boudeng Edruce, General Manager of Enfiniti Productions.

The RHB Banking Group has previously sponsored numerous performances and shows in pursuit of supporting performing arts, and this time the Group is very pleased to work with Enfiniti Productions in bringing back PGLTM. The Group looks forward to presenting an equally excellent – if not better – show to the public this time round.

about Shanel & Aylwin

Congratulation Shanel Shanty James-Santiago and Aylwin


remember Shanel? alah..that cute sabahan girl who got paired up with me almost every other week during that reality - tv show way back in 2004 (yes! that reality TV show...Hu3) and if you remember that show, you would remember Aylwin, the music director of the show, the MD of Sunday Lollies (betul ke aku tulis ni?) and Ning Baizura's Music Director.
.
Anyway, 6 days ago they tied the knot in Taiping after courtship of 4 years (yes it has been 4 years) and i was the first to know they they were dating (i think so) way back then... and tonight they held KL reception in the Hideaway OKR KL.
.
I was there, so were our realityTV mates, Misz and Jimmy. Ning and hubby was there and so was Miss J Victor and Nikki and off course Mr Manager.
.
I arrived late because as at 8pm i was still in my office trying to finish my work (plus the traffic was super BAD due to balik kampung rush) rushed over to the wedding reception, thinking about food for buka puasa (had coffee in the office earlier)... arrived at The Hideaway around 830pm and saw Mr Manager and Ning... went straight to work (business talk on my new project for Enfiniti for TV) and forgot that i havent eaten.... working still huhuhu...
.
But it was a nice gathering for friends and family and i am glad that i made it there, very private, very family, very fren-fren kind. i like. i enjoyed. almost didn't because of work and traffic. but i am glad i did.
.
Congratulation again for both Shanel & Aylwin...

23rd September 2008
Press Release

Puteri Gunung Ledang The Musical- more magical, more spectacular, more breathtaking than ever before!
.
This coming February 2009, Enfiniti pays tribute to LOVE, and celebrates valentine’s month with the story of the legendary love of the heroic warrior Hang Tuah and the mythical princess of Gunung Ledang.
.
Tiara on PGLM’s return:
Enfiniti has been asked this question again and again by fans of theatre for the last 2 years – when will PGLM be back?
.
We’ve had 2 very successful seasons at Istana Budaya and an also sold-out season at Singapore’s Esplanade in 2006; by now, nearly 60,000 people in Singapore and Malaysia would have watched the show, and many of them are repeat audiences who keep coming back to enjoy the PGL Musical experience, which is such an encouragement for all of us to keep on delivering our best!
.
We also had an exciting journey putting on our second musical adventure, P.Ramlee The Musical with two successful seasons in Kuala Lumpur as well as a very well-received run at Singapore’s Esplanade. We learnt so much more from that experience and all through the time we were working on P.Ramlee, my team and I would meet to discuss PGLM in between-we talked about how we would make the show even more magical than before should we ever put it on for a third season. The ideas grew, and our excitement with it, and now we are all revved-up and so looking forward to putting on this exciting new production of the show!
.
Tiara on what the Puteri Gunung Ledang project means to her:
I guess it has always been in the back of my mind somewhere to bring the show back, because PGLM to me holds a special kind of magic I have personally never found in any other piece along my years as an actor and producer.
.
Story-wise for me, it’s a powerful and empowering woman’s journey, yet the musical version manages to capture moments of girlishness, a carefree, adventurous, impetuous attitude to life which I love, and most poignant of all, the courage to pursue a dream that I think many of us can relate to.
.
Production-wise, I must unashamedly admit that everytime I watch the show on a dvd recording, I watch with amazement and can hardly believe how we managed to put all this together!
.
(on sets) : I’m continually blown away by Raja Malek’s wonderful sets, which I think will always remain his masterpiece. Malek and Zahim have just returned from a study tour in France and the UK, watching several productions and meeting up with people from the industry, and we have discussed the enhancements they want to bring to the show to make it more spectacular than ever this time around.
.
(on script and lyrics) : In a musical, a lot of it is about how the songs and the dialogue move you. I go mmh-mmh-mhhhhh… when I think of how cleverly thought through every line of Adlin’s script and every verse of his lyrics are… I almost feel “geram” thinking about just how talented he is, sometimes. He has earned and fully deserves all the awards and accolades he has won for his writing, he really is a gem. This will also go down in history as one of his best works ever, for sure.
.
(on directing) : Zahim Albakri has brought to the show an incredible feel of a world-class stage musical with his vast experience and his influences, having watched almost all the major shows in the world. Many people after watching PGLM have told us that this show can go anywhere in the world and make Malaysia proud, isn’t that wonderful? Adlin’s partnership with him has brought out a strong Malay essence and spirit throughout the show, yet is contemporary, fast paced and very “today”. The elements of the east and west have been beautifully combined. Zahim’s challenge for the coming season is to make the PGLM experience even more breathtaking for the audience, especially those favorite magical moments that everyone loves.
.
(on choreography) : Pat Ibrahim has proved his mettle in stage choreography time and time again, with his stunning and awesome pieces of work in both PGLM as well as P.Ramlee. What I love about Pat is that he is continuously reinventing himself. When we discussed the new season, and a possibility of putting on “an exciting new show” now that we have so many months of lead time, Pat was the first to say “Yay! I want to re-choreograph EVERYTHING.” I believe audiences are in for a spellbinding time this season.
.
(on music) : With music maestro Roslan Aziz, the proof is in the pudding. He blew us away with the music of PGLM in February 2006. His combination with Singapore’s Dick Lee, who wrote the beautiful music was pure magic. Roslan proved that PGLM wasn’t a flash-in-the-pan when he blew us away again with his music direction in P.Ramlee, and if I know Roslan, something wonderful is already brewing for the new production in February!
.
For me, as producer, it’s wonderful knowing you have the best of the best working together on your team, and all of them challenging themselves to do better. We have a great synergy amongst us, great respect and admiration for each other’s work, and each of us continuously energizes the other, that’s something you can’t plan for – it’s either there or it’s not. And as executive producer, I have to equal and even exceed everybody’s effort, not just in putting together the production, but also with my second hat on, in my own performance as Puteri.
.
(Tiara as Puteri):
As an actor, I can’t explain it, PGLM has a very special magic about the story, the music and the songs that still gives me the goose bumps every time I think about it. PGLM was many Malaysians first love and first experience watching a Malaysian musical, and will always be my favorite piece of work, my pride and joy forever.
.

About Missing the innocent time of 'yesteryears'


I really do... Those were the time of simplicity the time when no troubles could trouble us. No worries on making mistakes, no fear on anything... Just a day to day life.

Why suddenly I am posting this I can't say why, maybe I am troubled with current happening that I wish I am still as innocent as I am in that photo that was taken by my late dad almost 33 years ago.

Oh I miss those days although I don't hve any memories about it.

God help!

about ingin tahu at FFM21 2008



Alasan? Tak perlu. Tiada siapa yang mahu mendengar alasan kerana sebagai penyanyi yang diberi tanggungjawab menghiburkan audiens, mereka sewajarnya sudah bersedia dari awal.


Namun begitu, ada beberapa persembahan yang cukup menawan ditampilkan.


Antaranya sudah tentu Datuk Siti Nurhaliza menerusi lagu Hati dan Sabar Menanti. Mujur ada Siti yang menyelamatkan majlis.


Begitu juga dengan persembahan Atilia dengan Chedd Eddie Yusof serta Ahmad Fauzee dan Melissa Saila yang mengembalikan memori audiens pada nostalgia filem Melayu klasik.


Terlalu sarat persembahan tempoh hari menyebabkan banyak kelemahan yang dilihat.

Read the original article here



Seronok juga bila ada orang memuji walaupun saya sebenar tidak berapa gumbira dengan persembahan saya malam itu. not my best tetapi i know i had fun with Atilia on stage. she's such a darlin!

about ingin tahu

Ingin Tahu
Hati Ini Mahu Tahu
Benarkah Punggukku Betul Rindu
Katakan Cintamu Padaku
Tunjukkan Sayangmu Jangan Malu
Untuk Menanda Janjimu Tidak Palsu

Aku Juga Ingin Tahu
Di Mana Sampainya Cinta Dinda
Betulkah Berada Di Jiwa
Atau Pun Cuma Di Bibir Saja
Tunjuklah Bukti Cintamu Sungguh Suci

Sama-Sama Ingin Bukti
Tandanya Menyinta Satu Hati

Janganlah Kau Menaruh Bimbang
Hatiku Tetap Sayang
Jiwaku Kepunyaan Abang
Itulah Tanda Cintaku Tak Bergoyang

Sama-Sama Ingin Bukti
Tandanya Menyinta Satu Hati
Kasihmu Dan Sayangku Sama
Cintaku Tak Ke Mana
Selalu Memuja Kau Dinda
Itulah Bukti Cintaku Takkan Dua

Sama-Sama Ingin Bukti
Tandanya Menyinta Satu Hati

about a letter from Singapura

I received an e-msg through my facebook account recently from a lady in Singapore requesting me to feature her letter to you all, this is her dedication to her late grandpa , Tiara and the cast of PRTM as a thank you note for making the musical experience at P Ramlee The Musical, one of her best memory ever... read on...

Perfection Has A New Name

Before I even begin, people would think this feature is pretty belated. Agreed, it’s long overdue but I wanted this to co-incide with my late grandfather’s birthday. I am certain wherever he is, he’s happy I wrote it. Believe me, he would have said it’s about time this girl did something she had been dreaming of doing.

If I told you I am trapped in time, would you believe me? You must think I’m crazy. Well, I’m not and I don’t need any saving either.

When I was growing up, my grandfather used to sat me down in front of the television and play me old movies specifically movies which starred Tan Sri P.Ramlee while he took a nap. Either that or he would play songs by R.Azmi in the kitchen while singing and dancing with my grandmother sometimes. What an awesome pair they were. Now after 7 years he’s gone, whatever he had done during those days became a habit of mine. Without fail, I would always watch Tan Sri P.Ramlee’s movies. The way we speak Malay may not be so fluent but when it comes to his dialogues and one-liners, more than half the time they are being used among us cousins. Imagine my excitement when I heard they were making P.Ramlee The Musical.

Due to various commitments, I missed the first season of the musical but was hopeful it would make its way to Singapore. Early March 2008, while my cousins, Naya and Ella were having a sleep over at my place, we went into Sistics website for upcoming concerts happening here. That was when we came across the musical. How ecstatic we were. This was something I was anticipating. I wanted tickets and I wanted them immediately. Unfortunately it was impossible as booking only began on 25th March 2008, 9.00 a.m. onwards. After gathering the people whom I wanted to watch it with especially my grandma, at 9.05 a.m. my tickets were ready for collection. By then I was counting down the days and nights, I was so looking forward. Two weeks after the booking, my 2 cousins and 1 went for the ‘Under The Banyan Tree’ screening at the National Museum of Singapore. Every end of the month, they would screen old movies under the banyan tree in Stamford Garden. We watched Seniman Bujang Lapok. After which, we were getting impatient for the musical. It was still weeks away.

The anticipation came with a slight disappointment when we learned that Sean Ghazi was being replaced. Being someone who is unfamiliar with the Malay film and music industry today (however I am very much familiar with the yesteryears stars, Jins Samsudin & Nordin Ahmad will forever be my 2 favourite heroes) I was bothered with casting. I hate it when I’m clueless.

All that changed on the night of May 17 2008. Not knowing what to expect, we went in and sat through our first ever Malay Musical. Guess what? It turned out to be one of the greatest, happiest moments in my entire 24 years of living. It would have been the best time of my life should my grandfather was around to watch it with us. It was like a blast from the past. From that day onwards, songs on my MP3 were solely meant for P.Ramlee and Saloma, some R.Azmi even up till today.

Firstly, my heart goes out to Musly Ramli. He’s the man, Period. Besides the voice and striking resemblance, he was an outstanding performer. At certain scenes, I thought he was P.Ramlee. I applauded the amazing cast namely Melissa Saila, Chedd, Atilia and Emelda. Next to Musly Ramli, my standing ovation goes to Liza Hanim. If ever there was anything or anyone as brilliant as Saloma, there she was. She played the role to perfection , and sang the songs flawless. Last but not least, the effort put in for the musical was just phenomenal. The people behind the musical deserved as much credit. They were just as perfect. It was a moment for me, the moment I fell in love with theatre all over again. I wrote and directed a play once during college days and ended the affair shortly after. Little did I know, it would return to me. Probably because of my passion for writing.

If you think this feature is done, well, sorry I’m not quite finished. Bear with me. Even I thought my journey with theatre would end after the musical. That was about to change. I met Tiara Jacquelina by chance at the Singapore Flyer, my work place. She took the ride with her family and I took this chance of a lifetime to thank her for this musical. I made it known I enjoyed it. In fact such a blast I had that I decided to head Kuala Lumpur in the next 2 weeks to catch it for the second time. Didn’t see that coming, did you? Neither did I. I must say, Tiara Jacquelina was one of the nicest and friendliest celebrities I’ve ever met. Trust me, I’ve had my fair share of celebrities’ sightings. She was so cool and it made me looked forward to my second stint. This time, it would just be my brother and I. Sure, second times could either make or break situations even changed opinions.


All I have to say is I had another tremendous time just as Tiara had promised. It was even more fantastic the second time round. We met up with some of the cast members and took pictures with them. My brother who was not into musical had a great time too.

After a month had passed, I still have not had enough of the musical. Would they do it again someday? Perhaps in the near future? One thing for sure, all of us agreed that should they do it again, we won’t miss it for the world. I would have a hat trick even though I doubt it’s enough. My cousins and I had our ‘Under The Banyan Tree’ screenings again at the end of June. We saw Madu Tiga and Bujang Lapok back to back at the same place. We had a great time and kept on talking, going on and on about the musical and of course the legend, Tan Sri P.Ramlee. He left us a priceless legacy. No man could surpass the talent he had, the lessons he gave and the laughter he shared.

Until today, his movies I watched without fail, his songs are still sang and heard. His one-liners and dialogues will always remain in my head awaiting the right time to be spoken out.


Did I not tell you I was trapped in time? I’m not planning to return to today’s time, not anytime soon at least. The golden era will always be a part of who I am, a part of what built my character, carved my personality and a part of what my grandfather left behind. Happy Birthday, granddad. I never had the chance to give to a gift therefore this is it. My prayers are with you as well as Tan Sri P.Ramlee and Puan Sri Saloma always. My humble yet undying words will continue to spread for as long as your memories are by my side.

P/S: I would like to grab this opportunity to thank Chedd for featuring this write-up in his blog. Thank you very much for the chance and the space! It’s deeply appreciated. Here’s wishing you and the team of P.Ramlee The Musical continued success in future endeavours. God Bless.

about empty

been out of touch with some of you faithful frens and readers for a while now. so i thought i should drop a short note.

After PRTM ended it's second run with a BANG last Sunday, I've been busy still. Since PRTM started till now... i haven't had a proper day off but i am not complaining because with new responsibilities i am the happiest boy around. at least it keeps my brain busy. Big projects coming soon and i am excited!

but off course 5 days after PRTM ended... i am feeling a bit empty. i miss all of them ... maybe i'll write a longer note on how much i miss them. later lah...

One word for the PRTM, FANTABULOUS!!!Amazing performance! I really enjoyed the show! Best credits goes to Musly Ramlee for his unbelievable voice just like the late P Ramlee.. And Liza Hanim, I love her beautiful voice.. Melissa Saila, a great actor as always.. Great job guys! Already looking fwd to ur nxt production!Cheers to all of you in PRTM!!!

wrote at 9:34am yesterday

Well... well... well! PRTM in Singapore was indeed amazing. The closing night was magnificient. Hats off to Melissa Saila (Norizan) & Liza Hanim (Saloma) and of course the man himself,Musly Ramlee (P Ramlee) for such a brilliant performance. All in all, it doesn't beat PGLTM, cause PRTM is indeed on a standard of its own.What's next? Hang Tuah? Hang Nadim? Radin Mas? Sri Mersing?! Like what Tiara said before "Bring it on, guys!"A shoutout to all in the team: "CONGRATULATIONS & SYABAS!"




Pujangga Malam

My goodness!!! What a production!!! Simply out of this world, nostalgic and making us travel back in time to witness the glory of the great man. An excellent play worthy of all the accolades received. Take a bow everyone who is
involved in this production, whether you are the main cast, the supporting ones or even the backstage crew. This show has left its mark in Singapore and yes, if it was a challenge to convince us, we were indeed blown away!!! Good luck with your upcoming performance in KL next week. Success to
everyone!!!


http://muhammadshafiee.wordpress.com/2008/05/17/p-ramlee-the-musical/

(self promo a bit here jangan marah ha!) Among the supporting actors, I like Chedd’s character. He played P. Ramlee’s good hearted, stick-to-friend-no-matter-what-happen and happy-go-lucky good friend
Sukardi who followed him from Penang to Singapore. But Sukardi returned to his hometown and his character ended there. Comparing PRtM and PGLtM, in my honest opinion, I favour PGLtM. My reason being that the costumes are more
extravagant and colourful. But don’t take my words for it. The musical will end its run on Monday (Singapore). If you have not bought any ticket, why not go get if there is any.

about Ning's Age of Pollution

Ning just released her first Europe single "Age Of Pollution" taken from her upcoming English Album EastToWest.

I like the feel of this song although it took me a while to like it. very euro feel to it, very electronica. nothing you might have heard of from Ning's previous offering. definitely fresh, fresh and suited for the Euro market. wondering what the video would look like...

To know more about the song and the upcoming album, go to MrManager's blog to listen to it :) or Ning's International myspace

about Kenduri Of The Year!

Tahniah Ning - Omar yang melangsungkan persandingan mereka di dalam Dewan Martrade opps salah tempat, Kampung Nekmat! Yup! seluruh didewan ditukar suasana menjadi perkampungan yang diberi nama kampung Nekmat. Cukup bagus sekali ide ini dan rata rata kedengaran orang memuji muji majlis malam tadi. siap dengan rumah pengantin, sungai, reban ayam dan kambing!!!

Apa yang perlu dipuji juga ialah hidangan makanan! saya yang duduk sekali bersama Cikgu Fatimah (AF) dan keluarga berserta Cikgu Najmi bersetuju sekali bahawa makanan kampung yang disediakan lazat sekali!

Dapat dilihat suasana kahwin orang kampung kerana rata rata tetamu yang hadir semuanya berpakaian ala-ala kenduri kampung dengan batik, pelikat dan pelbagai. saya teruja masuk dewan kerana perasaan rindu ke kampung terubat seketika takkala masuk kedewan.

Pujian mengunung harus diberikan kepada penganjur majlis yang bertungkus lumus mengendalikan majlis. sememangnya majlis kenduri kahwin Of The Year! terima kasih Vernon kerana menjemput.

Apa yang penting, majlis kenduri tadi cukup releks santai dan bersahaja tetapi tetap ada class tersendiri dan memang wajar saya katakan ini majlis kahwin terbaik pernah saya hadiri. pelbagai acara diadakan tetapi kerana acara malam tadi begitu releks dan personal, masa berlalu cepat sekali kerana masing masing seronok, ber poco-poco, ber joget lambak dan pelbagai. sekali lagi saya nak puji pihak yang membuatkan majlis tadi meriah sekali.

kalau nak tengok gambar gambar yang banyak saya ambil ketika majlis silalah jemput ke cheddgraphy. mana tau kut kut gambar anda ada disitu... hehehe

about juara lagu malam tadi

Tahniah kepada anak muda Estranged untuk kemenangan Itu Kamu. Sebelum keputusan di umumkan, saya dan Liza Hanim sudah agak lagu ini bakal juara. tahniah juga untuk Nora, Sahri/Kaer, Mawi dan Jaclyn Victor masing masing untuk kemenangan di Juara Lagu malam tadi.

Sepanjang malam saya sibuk mengambil gambar sebenarnya hahaha kalah photograher profesional tapi apakan daya itu hobi saya. seronok juga sebab teman kat sebelah saya si Liza Hanim (yang sentiasa cool dan gila gila) bersama hubby dan megat (PGLm and P Ramlee Musical) jadi kami pun berboraklah sepanjang malam komen itu komen ini hehehe tapi seronok sebab tempat duduk kami yang smack center betul betul depan pentas tu memang puas hati cuma saya rasa sound system ditempat saya agak kurang.

Rata rata persembahan malam tadi sungguh memberangsangkan sebab nampak gaya semua cuba untuk memberi yang terbaik. walaupun rata rata persembahan malam tadi baik dari segi koreografi, vokal dan sebagainya, kemenangan berpihak kepada Mawi yang saya rasa berbaloi kerana memang mantap. Seronok tengok Mawi dengan budak budak tu menari!

Teruja saya melihat ramai kenalan dipentas menari dan menyanyi. persembahan Nora bagus sekali dengan tema Samudera juga kemunculan kembali siti di pentas Juara Lagu dengan imej terbaru. saya sudah tengok semasa sessi latihan beliau bersama penari tetapi ini pertama kali saya lihat Siti menari penuh bersama, all dressed up... gempak siut! Kata Aubrey Suwito dibelakang pentas , Siti benar benar berlatih bersungguh sungguh untuk persembahan malam tadi sampai di airport pun boleh berlatih! hahaaha . kalau kengkawan nak tahu, koreografi Samudera dan destinasi Cinta di karangkan oleh Pat Ibrahim.

bagi vokal terbaik pula Jac Victor memang tak boleh disangkal lagi. tetapi disini saya ingin puji penyanyi penyanyi pengganti , Fiq, Sahri dan Bob yang membuktikan mereka ini memang mantap walaupun ini bukan lagu mereka tetapi mereka telah lakukan yang cukup baik sekali! Persembahan selingan dari Dayang, Nikki dan Ziana juga tidak kurang hebatnya!

Malam ini juga saya seronok sebab dapat jumpa ramai rakan rakan lama yang dah lama tak jumpa seperti Tria (yang mengiringi Fazli Zainal), Esar (gangstarz) Liza, Atilia yang datang bersama Ibu Pn. Salamiah , Michael Xavier Voon, Dafi dan beberapa peminat lama saya (ingat lagi korang kat i ye heheh) yang kebetulan datang dari jauh untuk menyaksikan AJL!

Malam tadi banyak gambar yang saya ambil sampai hampir 80% kapasiti 2GB sd card saya penuh dengan gambar gambar huhuhu tetapi kalau anda nak tengok banyak gambar gambar paling saya suka yang yang saya ambil sekitar malam tadi silalah ke cheddgraphy!

about AJL ini malam

jangan lupa temujanji anda dengan Anugerah Juara Lagu Ini malam. banyak kejutan nya saya dengar akan berlaku ini malam di stadium putra Bukit Jalil... pertama set pentas nya, kedua, tahun ini paling banyak lagu yang dipertandingkan bukan bakal dinyanyikan oleh penyanyi asal dan Dato hajjah Siti kembali beraksi di AJL setelah sekian lama dengan Imej gempak terbaru .... see you there!

About Siti's Birthday

Happy birthday Dato Datin Seri Hajjah Siti Nurhaliza (fuhh panjangnya)

Malam tadi bertempat di La Meredian Kuala Lumpur, rakan taulan dan yang tersayang telah sama sama meraikan majlis Hari Lahir Siti. Majlis tersebut telah diserikan oleh rakan rakan artis dan rakan rakan peribadi serta keluarga Dato Siti sendiri. Apa yang saya amati, guest list Siti amat personal sekali. agak sesak juga majlis malam tadi dengan para jemputan.

Makanan secara buffet juga meriah dengan pulut kuning dan rendang yang superb! dimana saya, Atilia dan Ariff makan dengan banyak nya... ahahaha kesian juga yang datang lambat tu sebab nampak gayanya semua orang yang datang awal serbu pulut kuning dan rendang sampai habis. antara yang wajib terhidang ialah Strawberry bersalut coklat kegemaran Siti.

Antara tetamu yang hadir ialah, Chef Wan, Syafinaz, Fazli Zainal, Julidza Adlizan, Fasha , Cikgu Fatimah Abu bakar and her beautiful daughters, Que Haidar, Sy Sahira and her hubby dan ramai juga lah. Abang Aznil yang datang sebagai tetamu diminta oleh Siti tolong mengendali segmen 'karaoke' huhuhu but saya tabik ngan abang Aznil... he's really good and very entertaining. warga kerja P Ramlee the Musical juga ada, Zahim, Sean dan Maya.

It was a pleasant night out with malaysia's darling. warga keluarga Siti dan SNP juga amat prihatin dalam memastikan tetamu selesa walaupun hujan. terima kasih Rozi (i know u r reading this heheheh)

Ada banyak lagi gambar di facebook saya dan cheddgraphy, sila silalah jengok tengok ye! Happy Birthday Siti!

about P Ramlee and Mont Blanc


The cast of P Ramlee The Musical was invited to do a show for Mont Blanc's close door private party at the Pavilion KL's main atrium last night. we did 6 numbers taken from the musical with some new chreography by Pat Ibrahim. As Sean Ghazi couldn't make it for this show, Tony Eusoff was called in to be P Ramlee and i must say, what a pleasure it is to be working with such humble star! Tony is a very nice to be with. Liza Hanim is in her usual funny woman mood, fun and she is the most humble superstar ever! we love them both and they look good together as P Ramlee and Saloma!

We had fun, the energy was high although the stage is is way bit to small but thanks to DS Tiara, Pat, Nora and Mont Blanc... we had fun.

Saw a lot of familiar faces there, even Dato hajjah Siti Nurhaliza was there among the crowd singing along with us from her seat where she was seated besides Tun Dr Siti Hasmah ( I think it's Tun Dr Siti Hasmah because cant see that clear from the stage). The ever beautiful soprano Syafinaz also graced the stage earlier. It was a great nite we had fun although we wished the stage would have been bigger to accommodate the 12 of us.
