just got home from a friend's house..did so many fun things this weekend..
as usual on a saturday morning..went to rugby practice at west terrace..had loads of fun..n hurts...but wont be continuing anymore coz i dont wanna disturb the official players of NCG with my dumbness of rugby..heheh
then went to Din's house coz we had sumthing planned for that night..hehe we planned on having a lil jam session with me on bass for the charity gig in sydney..i was still uncertain on to go or not to go..but he insisted on trying it out first with them..so i went with it..
we went to Elfer's place that night in 'The Village'..(which was on the top floor mind u..4 floors up! that itself was a workout for me..) i was so nervous bout doing it..even though its just among us three..me, Elfer, and Din..walked into his room..n thought..wow! its like a small studio here! me,bass in hand(thanks to abg bentara..) was trembling..he had 2 guitars..which was super awesome!! Gibson n Ibanez! Elfer did a lil improv and it was siiickkk....
we started of playing 'the chemistry' by butterfingers..which went pretty good..had a couple of tries..n sounded perfect..(to me at least..)..coz i actually practiced at home with my own guitar..had a couple of adjustments on my side but it was going smoothly..hehe my heart now tells me that i am doing good for now..still unsure though..
second song..'school of rock' from the movie School of Rock..never actually got the bassline for it..had to learn it on the spot from Din..(good thing i am a quick learner..ehem2..)..but it wasnt as tough..played it a couple of times..then sounded good..again!! hahaha!! now im fairly certain that i should be going to sydney..
then since we got tired of playing the same songs..we actually started playing 'Hysteria' by muse..n it was awesome!! now i really want to go..hahah!! wut a surprise huh?? (being sarcastic to myself..)
we had a lil break in the middle..decided to eat in the middle of the night..(which was freaking cold!!) on the way down from Elfer's house..they keep telling me that i have talent on playing bass..(sweet talk i suppose..but stilll..i cant help it..i blushed..hahah!!)
went back home at 2.30 in the morning..slept at Din's house..again,freaking cold!!
so now..i have made up my mind..i will be going to sydney..to be in the band..and a lil side job as a photographer..heheh
thats all for now..

this is something that i am not used to..let me tell you bout it..heheh
i went to the UMNO AGM with a friend of mine in UniSA City East campus..was minding my own business coz i came in late..(i came in just for the food to be honest..hahah!!)..when the AGM was over, the eating began..not 2 spoonfuls of mihun goreng, a friend of mine called me..acis was his name..
S1: r u going to Sydney for NCG (national conference and games)???
S1: u see..we need some photographers to go to NCG..to get some photos of the event..
me: me?!! (ur asking me?? im so excited..)
S1: there'll be more..i just wanna ask you to join us..u interested??
me: (bummer) well..i have to think first..i dont have much money now..i'll think about it..=)
a friend of mine commented on my facebook telling that he has something that he wants to talk to me over the phone and asks for my number...din was his name who is playing rugby for the NCG..so i gave it to him and waited for his call..i wonder what was so important..hurmm..
i went to the movies with 2 other friends, alif n p-dut..saw star trek..and it was the shiz-nit!! hahah!! (always wanted to say that..haha!!) in the middle of the movie din called me, but i didnt answer coz we were still watching the movie..after the movie, i called him up..
S2: yo..ur going to the NCG rite??
me: no..im not in the rugby team..(coz i trained with them..for a couple of days..just needed the exercise..heheh)
S2: come and support us then..
me: no way! im not spending money to go there again (coz ive been there to see my brother) just to cheer for you guys..
S2: ok2..how bout this..i already know that u can play the guitar (cos i went to his house and had a lil acoustic jamming session with him..heheh)..so i was thinking of recruiting u to play bass for a charity gig during NCG..u interested??
me: me??!! (again?!! u asked me?!! im so excited!!)
S2: there'll be more..i just wanna list down who is interested..
me: (bummer..again..) i'll have to think about it..coz im pretty short of cash right now...plus acis also asked me to go there as well to be one of the event photographers..so i'll think about it..=)
finally..somebody acknowledges my talents..hehe im so grateful...coz i didnt have the same acknowledgements at home..especially dad..when i take snaps..he seems not to like them that much..always asking whats that?? whats this?? wheres the subject? ur angle is off..all that stuff..non encouraging stuff...but i am still grateful for him..coz he bought me the camera..thank you dad..im trying my best..same as the guitar business..never encouraging..but i could understand why..the music that i play isnt what he grew up with..but still..thank you dad..im trying...
so..back to business..to go?? or not to go??
if i go..i can be an event photographer, as well as play the gig..but i dont have enuff money..
if i dont go..i can pack my things up in peace..coz im moving to a new house this july and the NCG is in july as well..huuhuh

Hi everyone..i just finished my new watermark that i intend to put in my photos..heheh
its an ambigram..its a form of writing or calligraphy or typographical design (as said by wiki..) of a word that you can read upside down or downside up..(if that's even a word..)..
being a fan of Dan Brown, im intrigued of the ambigrams featured in the book 'Angels and Demons'...so i made one for myself..
tell me what you think..=)
