Perhaps...it takes an intellect to appreciate and pay high respect on intellectual properties!...Ehemm! :=)
Countdown from the rooftop!
Calling all party animals....meow! Woww...woww!!...Cock!Cock!Cock..CoooocKK! Nyet..nyettt..nyett!! Nggokk! Reserve some energy (and money too) for the event below. Well, apart of the rooftop happening, Asia City will also be holding the first ever street party on the same day (31 Dec) starting at 6.30 pm. So it's gonna be from the street right up to the rooftop (hopefully no one takes the short cut jumping from the rooftop back to the street....die lah like that!)Yeah.... let's party!
On entering the zone, first thing first, is to look at the dock hoping a glimpse of a submarine...:=D but so far no luck lah. I did ask one personal if there's a chance for public to see one. He said maybe yes maybe no...errgh! Hopefully they will have a public open house one day!. The facilities in the base are so impressive. I took a peek at the stadium, although not as big as Likas', it appears to have an aesthetic football pitch. The swimming pool is obviously olympic standard complete with multi level diving platform...;=O. I was like saying to myself "who the hell is going to dive there?" If this is a standard facility in any base, they should've produced many national champions divers . But I don't think any of those current champions come from naval base (Nantilah aku tanya kalau tu askar punya muka lembut-lembut sikit...:))
When the doctor said "it looked really stranged", it probably something totally beyond his imagination. I completely have no idea how it looks like but the sight of the abnormal coconut tree with seven branches that appeared on paper recenlty, quickly come into my mind...*LOL*
...Wishing you all the Happiest of Holiday(s)!..:=D
He sounds so awkward speaking in Indon. Aiyoo tdambi! Tara perlu cakap Indon la! Lu tara bacakah? Ini KK juga bukan Indon!!
Enough with the school assembly session, the show starts rolling with Jinbara doing the opening act. After belting out two fast songs including Cinta Padang Merdeka, the lead singer started losing his stamina. I was wondering how he is going to cope with his next number. He announced a ‘surprise’ guest to the audience. Guess who? It’s Felix Agus! (Surprise kan! Cos he wasn't on the list of performers that night). He belted out Jinbara’s Kasihnya Laila before continued with Farhana. Jinbara themselves accompanied him live. Felix is not in his best. He sounded tired like someone who just woke up from sleep (sick? Not ready for the show because of last minute invitation?).
Dewa Mahabhrata reappeared just to say “apalah kk ni macam kurang rock lah!”. Mind you, he said this after ‘devotees’ were seen doing possessively the head banging!
Ready or not, Ella is next, belting out Rama Rama and Resah.
JENG! The moment the audience has been waiting for finally arrived. Dewa Mahabhrata eventually called on Dewa 19. After tuning up their instruments they started belting out the first of their 15 repertoires. And the crowds? OMG! Unruly…wild…insane…in fact I don’t know how to describe them precisely.
I’m not a hardcore fan of Dewa 19. To prove it, I only know a couple of the songs they performed that night such as Pupus, Sedang Ingin Bercinta and Dewi (and Queens’ I Want To Break Free of course). But having seen they performed, I feel like listening more of their songs especially their past albums. Everything seems perfect. The lead singer Once was just awesome! I set my radar closely for any glitch on his voice. Surprisingly I can’t detect any! He sings well in tuned, pitch-perfect, and energetic with no sign of losing his stamina physically and vocally (Pak! Jamu apa kamu makan pak?). I’m into bands with vocal harmony and Dewa 19 has it. Apart of the band members doing the harmony themselves, they also get help from two women as back-up singers. Their harmony was balanced. All these just lead my suspicion to the controversial cheating technique practised by some western singers (including Madonna). They pre-recorded their so-called ‘live performing’ voice in studio and miming it out during a concert to make it appear as a real ‘live’ voice. Who knows Dewa is creatively and secretly applying the same technique here! But it’s just a suspicion. They did excellent job
Dewa took a break halfway through the shows to make way for the lady trio from Indonesia who called themselves Dewi-Dewi. They are promoting their debut album here. Their sexy repertoires surprisingly received lukewarm responds from the crowds. Probably the crowd was just too tired and presumed their segment is nothing less than a commercial break.It’s the best show I’ve seen this year. Dewa 19 simply delivered what I expected from a band with such a high calibre. It’s more than worth the RM 30 ticket to see them (actually it’s a RM 30 worth of reload coupon). So I get myself a reload coupon while get to watch some high-class gigs at the same time…killing two birds with one stone. Will I be joining the cult next time around? Hell no!..=). BTW three lucky people were awarded RM 5,000 each during the lucky draw. Pakcik jealous banget!

All the best to them!
