Tiger Translate Malaysia @ Kenanga City

Tiger Beer, the world’s iconic Asian beer presented the first ever Tiger Translate event here in Malaysia at Kenanga Wholesale City (KWC), right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Thousands of art and music enthusiasts witnessed as art and music collided under one roof for an unforgettable, one of a kind experience.

Bruce Dallas, Marketing Director for Guinness Anchor Berhad (GAB) said, “Over the years, Translate has had resounding success globally and today we are happy to finally join the movement by introducing this platform to Malaysia. Tiger’s main aim has always been to connect with our hip, young and energetic consumers and with today’s turnout, the Translate platform has successfully enabled us to engage with them. Our deepest gratitude goes out to the visual and music artists who did a stellar job bringing the two worlds together and engaging with the audience. It has always been our aim to keep the brand relevant to our consumers and tonight was a testament to that. We definitely look forward to having more of these in the years to come.”

In true Translate fashion, attendees were treated to an array of live art installations as they made their way towards the main hall through the Translate art tunnel.

Within the tunnel, they had the opportunity to witness first hand, talented graffiti artist, Kenji Chai, creating beautiful pieces of Tiger Translate art.

Weezer – Say It Ain’t So

Weezer, formed in 1992 in Los Angeles. The band currently consists of Rivers Cuomo (lead vocals, guitar), Patrick Wilson (drums, guitar, backing vocals), Brian Bell (guitar, backing vocals, keyboards), and Scott Shriner (bass, backing vocals, keyboards).

Say It Ain’t So, is a single from its self-titled debut album in 1994. It’s the third single by Weezer and has remained their most popular song of all-time.

This song, of course, remains one of the best alternative songs of the 90′s.

Written by Rivers Cuomo, he believed his parents’ marriage ended because his father was an alcoholic and this made him fear the marriage between his mother and step-father would end this way as well. Hence this song.

Here is Weezer’s Say It Ain’t So lyrics and music video.

Weezer – Say It Ain’t So

Somebody’s Heine’
Is crowdin’ my icebox
Somebody’s cold one
Is givin’ me chills
Guess I’ll just close my eyes

Oh yeah
Alright
Feels good
Inside

Flip on the tele
Wrestle with Jimmy
Something is bubbling
Behind my back
The bottle is ready to blow

Say it ain’t so
Your drug is a heartbreaker
Say it ain’t so
My love is a life taker

I can’t confront you
I never could do
That which might hurt you
So try and be cool
When I say
This way is a waterslide away from me
That takes you further every day
So be cool

Say it ain’t so
Your drug is a heartbreaker
Say it ain’t so
My love is a life taker

Dear Daddy
I write you in spite of years of silence
You’ve cleaned up, found Jesus, things are good or so I hear
This bottle of Steven’s awakens ancient feelings
Like father, stepfather, the son is drowning in the flood
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Say it ain’t so
Your drug is a heartbreaker
Say it ain’t so
My love is a life taker

Babymetal – Give Me Chocolate

BABYMETAL is a Japanese girls metal vocal and dance group, consist of Suzuka Nakamoto (lead vocal), Moa Kikuchi, and Yui Mizuno. They are also known as Su-Metal, MoaMetal, and YuiMetal.

Their style of music is a mix of J-Pop idol and heavy metal. Su-Metal is 16 year old this year and the other two are 14 year old, where Suzuka Nakamoto as “graduated” from the female idol group Sakura Gakuin.

The opening for this song is heavy metal as hell. But as the lyrics kick in, J-Pop idol stuff came in. I’m totally hooked onto this sing! And not to mention the girls are kinda cute, in a none-pedo way.

Here’s BABYMETAL’s Give Me Chocolate music video and lyrics.
