Paramore Live In Kuala Lumpur @ National Stadium Bukit Jalil, Malaysia

On 19th October 2010, I got a pair of tickets for Paramore Live In Kuala Lumpur at National Stadium Bukit Jalil and it’s all thanks to Tune Talk and Nuffnang for the Rock Zone tickets..

Most of all, want to thank Ginny for passing me her pair of tickets and it’s the second time in this year already! She gave me her Stereophonics “This Feeling” Live Gig at KL Live tickets too! :D Now everyone go give her some hits :P

Okay back to the topic..I’ve never really been a fan of Paramore, having only listened to 3 songs on the radio..

But being a rock fan me (or whoever it is), I wouldn’t say no to free tickets! Thanks again Ginny..My treat next time :D


*L>R – Yours truly, Daphne, Derryk, Lisan, Joshua*

Bumped into Lisan and Derryk while staring at the long queue for the numbered seats..


*Long queue*

Lucky for Rock Zone revelers, the entrance is on the other side and we didn’t have to queue at all! Also thanks to Michelle for passing the tickets to me :D

By the way, all photos with my watermark and Youtube videos are all snapped and recorded using Blackberry Torch 9800..

Sorry for the bad quality as I’m still trying to explore its functions and was trying to get the best out of it..


*Crowd at 7.30pm*

We were treated with local acts for the opening, Y2K, their songs are pretty unique I would say, a combo of Slipknot and Paramore style..Yeah, you tell me..

Paramore went on stage at about 8.30pm and they were readied to rock!

Their opening set, “Ignorance” was energy-filled and I started to get into the mood already..

Like I said I wasn’t a true fan of Paramore bu I must say, their opening set has had got me into them and was asking for more from them..I just smirked as a sign to agree to myself..

Hayley Williams the lead vocalist, was very energetic throughout the whole concert..She was running to the left and to the right of the stage without sounding exhausted on the mic!

You want more I know..Just continue to read on with 3 more videos waiting for you :D

Jamie’s 20th Birthday @ Opus Bistro, Bangsar

Last Friday on 8th October 2010, the bunch of us gave Jamie a private surprise birthday party at Opus Bistro in Bangsar..

Not much of food review kinda thingy but more on a party post..

It was almost a failure because she was supposed to attend an event at Ecoba..Glad the boyfriend Didjital managed to somewhat tricked her to go somewhere else, which is to meet us..

Photos credit to Nigel‘s 550D and Ren‘s Leica Digilux 2..


*Balloon surprise*

There we have colorful balloons floating around for a more relaxing atmosphere in the cosy restaurant..

With time fixing and taking a detour from Ecoba, the time has come and we can’t wait to surprise her..


*Rise and salutation*

When Jamie and Didjital entered the bistro, we definitely surprised and we caught her off guard..


*Jamie and Didjital*

Well, the surprises to see the surprised face was priceless and it’s kinda fun to do this once in a while..


*Muka stimzzz*

I don’t know why but she looked stimz in this photo..By the way, Jamie always got high on helium balloons..You’ll know later on..

And so the camwhoring started before and after the food arrived..


*L>R – Joshua, Kelli, Daphne, yours truly*

The food there was kinda awesome and the pricing is around RM30-50 per pax for pasta..Not too sure bout steaks and others..


*Stormtrooper cupcakes*

Jamie is kinda well-known for loving cute things such as Domokun and many other things (can be seen in HERE)..

So we got her some customized Stormtrooper Cupcakes for something different *Imperial March theme playing in the background*..

More photos ahead and of course a recorded video!

Adam Lambert Glam Nation Tour Malaysia 2010 @ Bukit Jalil Putra Indoor Stadium

On 14th October 2010, I joined the gang to the Adam Lambert Glam Nation Tour Malaysia 2010, thanks to Sony Music and Marctensia, not to forget brought to you by DiGi Live..

When I reach Bukit Jalil, the traffic flow was kinda smooth but the crowd in and out of the Putra Indoor Stadium was overwhelming..

A news article reported there were 10,000 people attended the Glam Nation Tour..

Well first we were treated with Jay Sean’s “Down”, sung by Iqwal..


*Iqwal*

His singing was quite good and great on his feet movements..He did a bit of moonwalking ;) Not bad for a new guy..


*Dennis Lau the violinist and Daniel Lee the Idol*

Then, my uni senior Dennis Lau came on stage with his violin and Malaysian Idol Season 2 winner Daniel Lee, a combo for Bon Jovi’s “It’s My Life”..

At about 9pm, the lights in the stadium were off and there was Adam Lambert standing up on the stage all glammed..

Adam Lambert started off with “Voodoo”, “For Your Entertainment”, “Rabbit Hole”, and “Ring of Fire”..

Then he continued with “Fever”, “Sleepwalker”, and an acoustic version of “What Do You Want From Me”..

At this point of time I feel that Glambert is toning down his performance just a slight tad bit but his energetic aura still rocked the stage nevertheless..

A friend told me he saw an interview with Adam Lambert on E! News on Astro, saying he toned down his performance as a way to respect the Malaysian government or something like that..Kudos to that!

More details on the set list, more photos, and of course a video from the concert after the jump! *jumps* :P

By the way, photos credit to Sony Music..

Blackberry Torch 9800 Review With Maxis10

Few days ago, the bunch of Maxis10 reviewers for Blackberry Torch 9800 have got the Torches in hand!

Before I start, I know some might think who am I to review the new savvy BB Torch? I’m no tech-blogger, I’m no famous person, I’m no pretty girl with super high traffic..

At the end of the day, a BB Torch is just used but tech people or famous people or lengluis with high traffic blogs!

I’m also a consumer so why is my review is not qualified? Instead of technical approach on the phone, as a normal consumer, I too can have my say on the phone as well..

And why I was chosen as a reviewer under Maxis10, that beats me but of course I was glad that I applied for the Maxis10 programme..

I was shocked when I got selected for the Maxis10 and really happy to be able to test the phone..


*The Blackberry Torch 9800*

The all new Blackberry Torch 9800 a.k.a Teledega is the first BB with a true touchscreen instead of tap-screen like the Storm series..

It’s also the first BB running on Blackberry OS6 and soon-to-come, BB Storm Refresh (Odin Refresh)..

I’ll discuss bout the OS 6 in upcoming entries and this entry is just to give you an outlook of how the BB Torch 9800 looks like..


*Blackberry Torch 9800 is a slider phone*

As you can see, BB Torch 9800 is a slider smartphone with both touchscreen-enabled and QWERTY keypad..

For a first-hand physical feeling, the QWERTY keypad is a tad too flat and small as compared to the Bold and even Curve..You can feel more of the buttons on both Bold and Curve..

But after using the Torch for 3 days, I kinda get used to the flat QWERTY keypad already but I must warn this to people with bigger thumbs..


*Home screen of BB Torch 9800 on a sideview*

Now the screen can even tilt side ways on either left or right side just like the iPhone and you can use a virtual keyboard for your typing..

This of course I’ll discuss further in the OS 6 blog entry too..


*I’m using Hotlink BIS Prepaid Plan*

Hotlink have this Daily BIS plan with only RM2.50/day but I kinda get confused with it’s usage and what’s not, I think I’ll try with the Weekly BIS plan for RM28/week..

Some friends said their credit got deducted for no reason and I defended Hotlink on the first day I was using it..

Unfortunately mine was deducted too, for almost RM20 in just 2 days..I was just using BBM, UberTwitter, and Foursquare..Not too sure how’s the Daily BIS plan works..

I only know that Daily BIS doesn’t include Internet Browsing..So after this I might just subscribe the Weekly BIS plan with 500MB data, inclusive of Internet Browsing..

One can activate the BIS plan at any point of time from their BB..Just dial *100# and press 7 to set your Internet settings..Then choose your plan, whether it’s daily, weekly, or monthly..

Okay don’t ask me bout the rates and T&C and all coz I’m not here to talk about the rates..So head over to Maxis Centre or any Hotlink booth for more info..


*BB Pin Barcode*

Once you have started your BIS plan, it’s time for BBM! :D Let’s BBM and start a whole new era of instant-messaging..


*Yours truly*

Do stay tune for more reviews on this Blackberry Torch 9800, namely the OS 6, functions, features, camera, and perhaps some applications..

Well it’s the Maxis10 Programme, so we have 9 other reviewers that you might want to check them out as well..

Adam Lambert – Whataya Want From Me

In conjunction with Adam Lambert’s Glam Nation Tour Malaysia 2010, I’m posting this for a bit of warm up and also for the usual post-concert fever..

I know concert-goers usually have the post-concert fever where they just can’t get enough of the songs after a concert is held..

This is one of my favourite songs from Adam Lambert thus far especially the opening guitar plucking tune..

So here’s the American Idols 8th season runners-up, Adam Lambert‘s Whataya Want From Me (or What Do You Want From Me) Lyrics and also official music video uploaded by VEVO..

Image Makeover By Ana Consultancy @ TANGS

Few weeks ago, I had attended a consultation session regarding image makeover..The image consultant is none other than Ana Cheong, of Ana Consultancy..

Ana, an image consultant, helps the people who sought after her service to know themselves better and translate the inner strength into the outer image without changing your much of their own personality..

Before the personal consultation, Ana had studied a bit of my personality..So during the consultation, I can see that Ana had put a deep thought on interpreting my personality and how to improve it to suit back myself..


*Putting a deep thought*

The whole consultation is about knowing myself better, from image to communication skills to body language..

Knowing one self better is where I realized which path I should follow best and how to improve my communication skills and some simple knowledge about body language..


*Trying out a new image*

After her study, here Ana was giving me an outlook of what I should do to my image at this stage of my life..

I must say I’ve learned a lot in this consultation and am able to express myself better than before, be it in image, communication skills, or body language..

Two weeks after the personal consultation, few other people and I were in a joint “workshop” to see result of “before and after”..


*The bloggers makeover group*

Attendees were Joshua, Rebecca, Iza, Huai Bin, Thomas, Jamie, and yours truly..

Before I continue, a huge thanks to TANGS Pavillion for the sponsored venue, a private lounge for us to change and make up and all..

TANGS too offered Personal Fashion Styling services and they were a big help! :D


*Before makeover*

So all of us got a “before shot” before we get changed and transform into a new person on the outside and yet same on the inside..

As usual, I went to the workshop with my favourite jeans, sneakers, and a stripe collared T-shirt..

After that we got into changing rooms and tried on few sets of pre-selected apparels where Ana and her assistant Catherine had chosen for us as a result of the makeover..


*The apparels*

Once again, thanks to TANGS Pavillion for letting us try on those clothes..

Read on the whole entry to see the final result of our makeover..Stimzzzz~~~
