Singer song writer edition

Last week there was a singer song writer edition at the infamous KLPac. This time it was a 3 days stretch filled with 18 indie talents. We got the powerhouse like Azmyl Yunor, Min’z and Wani Ardy. Others would be like Ian Chow, Jasemaine Gan, Priscilia Xavier and many others. Those that really catch my attentions was Rashdan Harith, Tony Leo, and Devon Chew. Went alone for all three days, but my collogues from fitness first that has some flare in the indie scene came by. Never tot there’s any, but glad that they join me there.

It’s fun watching these indie scene as I feel comfort in their words. They write based on experience, play their own music, own gigs and get their ep done. Some succeed, some doesn’t, but that’s not their aim for. But just a figure of speech and speaking their mind out. Its nice to have fans and friends support, but self expression is good enough towards them. it’s not about money as some of them got a full time job. It’s about art.

min'z n me

Fail to realize that each one of them has their own unique style and things that they constantly write and sing about, some about relationship, some about suffering (my type), about life, and others just for laugh. Manage to get some autograph from my indie heroines and tons of ep and album. It s nice as they are real humble person. Kewl….. hope you the best and don’t go mainstream… it’ll ruins the art….

Artsy Me

People been wondering where does my artsy flare came about. It’s a really funny story actually. Even I was surprised where the heck that it came from.

As during my childhood life, I was so into military. Had an ambition to become a solider those days. When I was in high school, I was in the army cadets. That’s where I got my discipline I suppose. During junior high, I was into accounts and numbers. Not much push there. But it was nice dealing with numbers and getting it all balanced up. Then later at varsity time I was into sports and also science… but that time around I’ve start being close with art. Start having a self expression and had my wall filled with graffiti.

Background wise, my mum is a writer. She wrote poetry, use to act in theater and have a taste in cinematography. She was a theater and drama graduate. My dad on the other hand was a painter. He draws with pencil and even paint sometimes. he has that much of patience in those details.

Regardless of my mom and dad background skills, none of them ever taught me about arts. They just encourage me to my likings. I suppose it’s just contagious. Where ever you are and the environment that you live in, makes you who mould you inside.

Aside from that, I got tons some friends and adk2 that got skills. Such as aina, the musically incline. And tyka the visual master in photography and also drawing, udin the pure blood rocker, i-sha the modern architect.. mannn, with all these talents, I suppose that’s where I evolve.

Might not be good or great. But at least a flare in arts indeed. I appreciate poetry, acoustic song, modern art painting, architecture performing arts and such. I suppose it’s because it’s a way of self expression that’s has depth and raw. To me theres three thing that I appreciate in life, brains/knowledge, skills/talent and finally, my attention.

Shadows (Original Rhyme)

i hardly know you, but yet im sad,
all memory about you, has always been bad,
it breaks my heart, to see you lying flat,
hope you still remember me, you always be my dad...

i pray for your health, wishing you get better,
would like to see you smile, maybe sometime or later,
how much your family hates, to me it dosent matter,
please dont leave me, always been harsh weather...

as much as i miss her, you've all i got,
without you from a distant, for sure i'll rot,
no matter how much we quarrel, or how much we fought,
you forever be, in my mind and my thought.....

this one dedicated to my adk...
stay strong lil one.
you're never alone.....

Simply Is (Original Rhyme)

after the dust is cleared, i hope you understand,
just want to hear your voice, as much as i can,
as some days are rough, unforgiving burning sands,
because i simply found comfort, whenever i touch your hand...

from month and years, that we been together,
through deep hot sun or stormy weather,
i would like to thank you for being my savior,
as i love you now and forever....

Missing Smile (Original Rhyme)

why cant you be honest, instead of hiding it all,
you know how my heart is, just drop and fall,
the ups and the downs, like a rolling ball,
all i was waiting was a simple text or a call...

so i just kept on waiting, for your response,
feel agitated, from dust till dawn,
like an used blanket, worn out and torn,
felt left hanging, waiting to be gone...

trying to reach out, but nothing could describe,
is there any medications, that need to be perscribe?
to me it'll be your smile, i wish to subscribe,
clearing my mind, from all negative vibe....

Letters From The Sky by Civil Twilight

One of these days the sky's gonna break and everything will escape and I'll know
One of these days the mountains are gonna fall into the sea and they'll know
That you and I were made for this
I was made to taste your kiss
We were made to never fall away
Never fall away

One of these days letters are gonna fall from the sky telling us all to go free
But until that day I'll find a way to let everybody know 'cause you're coming back, you're coming back for me
'Cause even though you left me here I have nothing left to fear
These are only walls that hold me here
Hold me here

One day soon I'll hold you like the sun holds the moon
And we will hear those planes overhead and we won't have to be scared

We won't have to be scared
We won't have to be scared
We won't have to be scared

You're coming back for me
You're coming back for me
You're coming back for me

Free Spirit (Original Rhyme)

Sorry for being so sharp and crude

Not my intention to be so cold and rude,

Hoping my apologies will let your heart sooth

As I based on impulse, that’s how I move,

Always believe in my heart, as days gone by,

Something that I could rely on, it would never ever lie,

Though I tend to put, my expectations up high,

This free spirit within, will not learn to die…

It’ll be my best friend and my worst enemy,

As it make me calm, walking thru cemetery,

Much more rewarding, compare to just money,

Actually feels inspire, when ever its rainy

You could never constrain, what not meant to be,

Trapped in a cage, or tied down to a tree

What ever it is, simply let me be me,

To unleash my potential, and let me break free…

Hands all over - maroon5 in Malaysia

last friday i happen to get 2 tickets for maroon 5 live in Malaysia. it was a prize for the hard work i suppose. was kinda reluctant to go actually. cuz could choose a member of staff. bummer. but ive took the most musically incline people to go with me. so its more of a reward for his good job.

theres not much people in this concert. as its only done in an indoor arena only. another member of staff came together with us. as she got tickets too n wann tag along. it'll b great. so here was the three of us. trying to crap into a picture. most of the picture was whacked. seriously.

the last concert i went was the paramore in Malaysia. there the sound was awsome but there was some technical problem as the mic went AWOL. hish...... not forgetting the opening acts too. lamemo...

this time i must admit the lighting was on time and fascinating, Adam's voice didn't even ran out of tune and it was non stop action. they literally cramp up all the songs to like almost 1hours and 15 or 30 min long. . didnt know the title of the songs so we just wait till the first verse came in. and sing along. especially zero carbo boi. his HAND WAS ALL OVER alright (all over his phone) hahahhahahaaa..............

it was a great expericence . but from my writeup here you know I'm not a really big fan. but then again it was nice and unforgettable. should keep this trend going right. bring on the next act coming malaysia. hueeeeeee......!
