NKOTBSB Karaoke By Sony Music @ Gardens Redbox

Sony Music Malaysia had organised a private New Kids On The Block + Backstreet Boys (NKOTBSB) Karaoke Night at the Gardens Redbox in conjunction to promote the NKOTBSB album..

That night, Tian Chad, Nigel, Fiona, Daphne, and I were there to relive our fond memories of the boy bands..

Daphne joined the karaoke contest in the Media Solo Category and the grand prize worth RM1,000 cash!

There were also the Public Solo Category and Group Category..

Other than cash prizes, the biggest of them all were 2 units of iBeats of ‘Beats by Dr Dre’ earphone worth more than RM500!

The iBeats’ tagline – “Hear What the Artist Intended”

Contestants get to choose their favourite song from either NKOTB or BSB and of course lyrics were provided because it’s a karaoke contest..

I enjoyed with most of the performances..Some were pretty good, some I could barely heard what they sang, and some were funny :P

I was a bit disappointed with their choices of song, where ‘As Long As You Love Me’ were sung for about 4 times by different contestants..

It’s quite a surprise that some other nice songs weren’t chosen, such as ‘Shape of My Heart’, ‘I Want It That Way’, and ‘If I Don’t Have You’, just to name a few..

In between breaks there were lucky draws..

I won some cash vouchers for Jusco and RedBox from it! :D

Tian Chad won some cash vouchers too..Fiona won a CK perfume from the lucky draw..

The biggest winner among ourselves was Daphne where she won herself the iBeats by Monster in the lucky draw!

In the end 2 contestants chose ‘All I Have To Give’, which is also one of my favourite songs from BSB..

Only one group sang ‘Step By Step’ by NKOTB and it’s no wonder to that coz some other contestants might be even younger than the NKOTB group!

I guess they were more familiar with BSB coz BSB is the modern boy band as compared to NKOTB, rose to fame in the late 80′s and early 90′s..

All is well and Daphne won the 2nd prize for the Solo Category, singing ‘I’ll Never Break Your Heart’..

That night totaled up about 6 groups and about 13 solo contestants..

Everyone of us left the place happily for winning something from the event :D

Nicholas’ Surprise Birthday Celebration, Nuffnang Style @ Redbox Plus, Pavillion

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO NICHOLAS FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU~!!!! *raise hands up in the air and profusely shaking crotch*

Well, another Nuffie’s birthday and it was quite a wicked plan..It was Christmas’ Eve, 24th of December 2008, where it was quite a tradition for Nuffnang to work somewhat half day..

Then the Boss have a plan in mind, to throw Nicholas a surprise birthday party..Not really the exact date though..His is on 28th of December..

The whole office had MSN conference without him knowing it, despite sitting beside Pinky with the monitor facing him..LOL~!!

During our conversations, everyone was like held themselves from laughing because the conference was a bit spammish rather than a master plan to topple Chee Ching’s surprise birthday celebration, masterminded by Nicholas..

We waited for the Boss’ signal and we went starving coz it’s 2pm and we haven’t have our lunch yet..And the Redbox reservation was at 3pm-6pm..

So Boss dragged Nicholas to Pavillion and tricked him that they need to search for a Xmas gift for KY’s Xmas’ Eve Party later on that night..

They walked and walked and walked and I’m not sure whether they bought anything or not..

But we had a bad experience with Pavillion’s Redbox Plus..We reserved our room at 3pm for check-in, yet we were still waiting in the waiting corner at freaking 3.15pm..

*The whole commotion, from waiting to makan coz starving*

We complained this and that and in the end they only let us in around 3.30pm..Then I texted Boss says we got the room and cake readied..

Then, there comes the birthday boy..Okay, the video is a bit dark..Set your monitor brightness to higher specs or something..


So yeah, our plan went off very well..Muahahaha *devilish laughs*

*Birthday boy Nic-Chay*

More of the karaoke sessions..Nice~
