So here i am again . checking in my blog. continue to write every little piece of me that i barely remember of what had happened few years back then . what did i do , where did i gone to , and i try to resemble back every piece of lost memories here , now . so bear with me .
         As i warn you before , bear with me , cause this entry will be very long , very tiring to read , very boring because you never know who i was back then before we know each other now . So this is me . What i usually spent and waste my leisure time during my previous years . i am a gig goer . and i am a fan of our local acts . Yes , i did mention to you . I LOVE MUSIC . from hardcore , metalcore , punk rock , pop punk , indie rock , alt rock , i listen to them all as long it suits my mood and my ears don't bleed while listening to them . my first gig was X-Gig in IPOH . i was still studying in school that time . if i am not mistaken , i was in Form 5 , and the gig was held during my SPM week ! HELL YES ! i couldn't resist the temptation to join this gig because i never had opportunity to attend one ! even though the day after the gig was my Physic Exam Paper (SPM) , but who cares ?! I've been studying for so long for this exam , so i bet , what would i lost if skip one day of studying to join this gig ? am i right ? so the line up for this gig was Bunkface , Bittersweet , Harmacy , Muck , and there was another two bands that i forgot their name . so sorry . :(  and here are some pictures from the gig.

         Let's continue . after X-Gig in Ipoh , i kept on going for gigs around my place . and this is my second gig that i attended. The name was Indie Day Out Fest . During this event , i had an opportunity to met the very first band from MALAYSIA , our LOCAL ACTS , that sounds like PARAMORE . you don't believe me ? go look for them now ! . Started from that day , i keep myself updating with them. Diana , or Dy the Voc and her band mates are very friendly and she's cute too !  So here's some pictures from the gig .

         This was another gig . The gig named Orbit Muzika , was held in Ipoh too at St. John Ambulance Hall , Ipoh. This gig was organized for The Hans and Mustard album launching . Awesome ! and there was also prizes to be given for Best Dress or King and Queen for the show . The place for this event was actually conducive . The air conditioner was well functioning and it made me feel so comfortable . As usual , most of the line up for the bands was actually my first time experienced to see them performing live . So the line up was Bittersweet , Couple , The Hans , Mustard , Melastik Bintang , Sam CF band , The Night Act , Zip Zieller , MARO and many more to be listed ! Here's some of the pictures from the gig .

       After three gigs in Ipoh , i returned to my hometown Penang . This lovely beautiful island will never be replaced by any other place i guess . Err...i hope so . You know what i mean ? right ? So , urmm...this gig was organized by XFM radio , formerly known as Xfresh FM . I really proud with this particular radio station because they would bring , support , and help out our local bands and artists ! How cool is that right ? So if anyone of you out there in a band , or managing a band or bands , you should bring your demo right now and give it to them . Who knows ? You might be famous . :) Ok , so here's some of the pictures from the gigs . Fyi , i used to listen for these bands in radio , of course XFM , and i feel so excited because this was another my first time seeing them performing live !
