Sayugia vs Sorganina

Amaran KRUjaan : Muzik membahayakan kesihatan.

Ok, takde kaitan. Just have been hooked on KRU music lately. :P

So, anyways, peringatan : post ini bukan bertujukan nak membandingkan kedua-dua band ini. Post ini bertujuan untuk menyokong kedua-dua band ini. And no, saya tak kan buat review lagu diorang. Nak tau pegi dengar sendiri. I have bad music taste, honestly! And I am bad in giving reviews. :/

 

SAYUGIA

28327_399488262690_197667522690_4771238_3282176_n

Salah seorang anggota band ini, Aiman Najmy merupakan kawan satu pusat pengajian masa zaman undergrad kat USM. So, kenal dia lebih kurang dalam tahun 2004 kot, masa tahun pertama kat USM. Dia ni kalau memula jumpa, macam pemalu. Jalan tunduk je.Tapi, bila dah kenal, sangat lah ramah orangnya.

“Sayugia merupakan band yang ditubuhkan secara tidak rasminya dalam awal November 2008. Tetapi pada hakikatnya band mate sayugia yang terdiri rizhan rashidi, aku sendiri dan juga pijat (fidzal) dah lama bertapak since zaman sekolah lagi. Lagu pertama sayugia dihasilkan ketika aku di arena kesibukan menghabiskan projek tahun akhir pada Mac 2008. Tetapi teras utama muzik sayugia tetap berlandaskan rock tak kisah la sama ada rock keras, rock alternatif, rock kapak dan apa segala jenis batu lagi.”

- Aiman

Ahli kumpulan Sayugia ni terdiri daripada Aiman Najmy (vokal/Lead guitar), Pjat (drummer) Arn (bassist) dan Ihsani (Penerbit & Second guitar).

SORGANINA

n71936865383_5466433_5018

Salah seorang anngota band ni pulak, Amar Hafizi, kenal sebab dia sangat jahat, telah merampas takhta mayorship Kampung Pandan dariku cess!! Eh, mayor Foursquare tau, bukan Datuk Bandar betul2. :P So, basically kitorang ni boleh dikatakan sekampung lah. Haha. I’ve never met him in person, walaupun rumah dekat sangat, sbb Amar sombong, dah nampak org kat Dagang Avenue tak reti nak tegur. :P

“To us, Sorganina means more to what we wanted most. A beautiful aspiration and motivation for us or to keep moving forward and survive in whatever we’ll be doing. 2008 is an experimental year of Sorga where they did a lot of home recording and tried to blend in as much genre as they could focusing on producing Pop Alternative Rock Music in Malay. Many have said Sorga sounded more to J-Rock Music but becoming more Indo Rock after a few gig.”

- Sorganina

Ahli kumpulan Sorganina pula terdiri daripada Bal (vocalist), Kech (Bassist), Ayam (Drummer), Shafiq (Keyboardist), Amarr (Guitarist) dan Yusri (Guitarist).

************************************************************

Aiman & Amar. Both of them had once faced a dramatic challenge in life – which I’ve never faced so far - and please Allah, jauhkan aku dari dugaan sekuat itu. I know I am not as tough as them if it ever happens to me. For me, both of them are very tough to embrace that and moved on with their life and now success in doing what they are doing now, what they wanted to do in life. 

So to both guys, Aiman Najmy and Amar Hafizi, congratulations on what you have achieve so far, and good luck for the future undertaking. Cheers! :)

Another well spent weekend in Penang

Yes, after a long time, I had my weekend well spent in Penang Island again. When i say ‘well spent’, it means more than just go to Penang for a movie and Starbuck-ing in Queensbay Mall or Gurney Plaza, ok.

Woke up not so early so i missed the chance to go to Taman Tun Sardon for ‘serabai’ breakfast. Yeah, I’ve been hooked up to ‘serabai’ since the first time I tried it during twin cousins, Ekha & Kaina and grandma were here.

So, went to the Rope Walk @ Lorong Kulit but nothing really attract my attention. Looking for Tenggelamnya Kapal Van Der Wijck from the uncle that i bought Salina from, but he doesn’t have it. Oh but we saw IPhone instead. But didn’t ask how much would he sell. Then, had lunch at Astaka Selera Stadium, next to the Penang Stadium and near the Lorong Kulit.

Then we headed to Upper Penang Road for the Little Penang Street Market. Last weekend was the 4th anniversary of the voluntary street market, which opens every last Sunday of the month.

2010_07_25_8628 Since 1985!

After that, we went all over Penang (ok, not really. i was exaggerating :P ) to find cempedak goreng. Yes, I wanted cempedak goreng that bad since like weeks ago and I couldn’t find any in Parit Buntar and Nibong Tebal area. :/

We went round and round to some places in Penang and kept looking, till we found a small stall in a housing area in Jelutung selling the cempedak goreng. Wooott!! Marvellous! Then went to another place - which I am not sure what’s the name of the place, a new place by the sea - hang out there to have the wonderfully taste cempedak goreng. XD

2010_07_25_8640 2010_07_25_8641

Then, after we finished with the cempedak goreng, guess where we headed to?

My tour guide of the day ( yes, i retired of being the tour guide for the weekend ;p ) brought me to a place named Relau. Why did we go to Relau…? Well, in Relau, there’s a place selling fruits on the roadside.

2010_07_25_8658

2010_07_25_8659

The one thing that i like about this place is you can buy the fruits and dine-in there. The place is really nice and clean. 

2010_07_25_8657

And this is what we came here for………

2010_07_25_8646 Durian… woottt!!!

Now, what do we do after eating the durian? The old folks say, to prevent our body from the heat of eating durian, we should drink the water from the ‘pasung’ durian. And that’s exactly what I did. :P

2010_07_25_8648  2010_07_25_8654 

After finished the fruit fiesta, we went hanging out in front of Queensbay area, watching the kite-flying here are there. Honestly, I’ve never ever succeed in flying a kite. But that was during the childhood. Never tried to fly a kite after i turned 17. Should really try it again some times – till I can finally make the kite flies.

2010_07_25_8662No. This is not a bird, or a Batman! This is a kite.

2010_07_25_8665The Penang Bridge.  Also, since 1985! ;)

2010_07_25_8667  2010_07_25_8700Well hey, anybody misses this? Err… i mean the satay ikan, not the brother. :P

2010_07_25_8706 Random. ;)

 

I really need a new lens. At least a new kit lens. Shooting with the manual focus sucks to the max! Gggrrrr!!

p/s: Thank you, tour guide of the day, for the cempedak goreng & durian!! You know you’re the best!!! :D

Manchester United AON Jersey official launch in Malaysia

So the leaked out photos of Manchester United (ManU) new jersey with its new sponsor AON embedded on the chest turned out to be the real ManU kits for season 2010/11.

Little design touches with the club initials printed on the back of the collar

Honestly the design which is inspired by the ManU 1980/81 season kits by Adidas isn’t something to be talked about. It’s simple, yet classic.

But one thing that excites me about the new jersey is that it is made of recycled polyester. The new ManU jersey is engineered and constructed under Nike's 'Considered Design' programme – which each of it is made entirely from recycled polyester, each crafted from up to eight plastic water bottles! Yeahh~! Polymer thingy does excite me to the max! :P

Now, lets do the maths.

  1. It’s Manchester United, for God’s sake! My favourite team.
  2. Nike is my all time favourite sports brand.
  3. Now, its the polymer thing with the jersey.

What any better combination could i ask for? :P

The new ManU home kit is officially in Malaysia launched by AON Malaysia on 15th July 2010, at Roof Top, Lot 10, Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur. Cousin Effa works for AON, so here are some picts taken from her. :)

Dansa by Sasha Bashir, Part II

For readers who have been reading my blog for quite a while, you might have come to a post titled Dansa by Sasha Bashir I posted a few months back. I really want the Dansa book but it’s a bit costly (at least for me). I’ve been eyeing the book and been reading it while spending time in Borders Queensbay Mall.

And last week, Sasha Bashir offered her Dansa, A Dance Journey book as a giveaway in her blog. Not a contest, free giveaway, randomly pick winners. How cool is that? Trying my luck, i send an email to her, wishing I’ll be picked as the lucky ones.

But since it’s a random pick, i know it must be hard to be chosen, since I’ve already won a contest from her blog once. So some friends volunteered to help email Sasha on my behalf, and i asked some other to email for me. It was mentioned that anyone can state for whom the book is dedicated to, to be autographed.

A twitter friend of mine, techsupremo was one of the random winners picked and he did dedicate the book to me. Yayyy!!! Thank you soooo much!!!

I am happy :D
