31st August 2012

I am the least #StarWars fan you will ever know but I think this is just too cool not to mention for a toy. For a minute or two, I thought I'd be converted to a real fan. Nope, I was only admiring. Guys will appreciate this more than I do. This one is not mine though for your info.

Caught this in admiration while waiting to go for dinner.
Pretty classic boy's toys no?

Was already starving even before we got there. Bah Kut Teh for dinner in Damai like finally. I've always wanted to try BKT in this shop. Mixed pork meat, balls & internal organs and 'cha kui' is the best! Running in the rain for this was worth it! Soupy for the weather, perfecto amor! 
And oh, the ice cream treat over meeting was yummy as well :)

30th August 2012

Bonding time with my dad & siblings over dinner at Gold Leaf Cafe. Mum just left for her vacation to somewhere. We had Steam Dumplings, Pari Panggang and the best Satay Ayam & Kambing (below) in Inanam I have tasted before. Perfect for the drizzling rain.

#TwtUpKKOpenMic 4th July 2012

On the 4th July 2012  ,the event started out late. It was pouring like mad. Some roads were already covered with floods. But that it did not stopped everyone from being at the venue and getting it crowded. Thank goodness I came early and I get to enjoy my dinner while waiting for everyone..

It was one night filled with new & old faces, local Sabahan and other Malaysian talents.
The unity of different types of music genres makes the event even more awesome.
The asian fusion delicacy at Party Play, company of friends, music and games too.

Beverly Rachel, Orkes Akiuku, Ridah Mala, Appy, Alvin MY, Rey Nizam & Harlod Peter and Andi American were among those who performed.

Did not managed to take picture of all of the performers as I have a once in a life time opportunity to show what's hidden with just a song.  
Came to my realization how supportive my musicians friends are.
Chris, Ange, Jon, Bob & everyone as well....So, so thankful!

Volunteer's DayTrip With The Officials

On the early morning's of 26th August , me and the rest of the volunteers went for a day trip or site visit with the officials for a up coming event. Can't wait to be part of this yet another double the excitement from last year's adventure.

Beautiful place and scenery right?

Overwhelmed by those extra adventures,

This is love indeed!

Did I just heard the voice of an Angel?
For them it is just some normal, the ordinary.
But I don't know why, I find it beautiful.
You and yours, not mine.

Behind the Scene #RayaDiKinabalu2012 (II)

Remember this?
 This was actually the same day.

Came in the sudden with the camera and decided I should capture the finall part of recording. JADE Sisters, Joan & Didi, were almost done with their verse when I walked in.  As everyone was spontaneously trying to remember their verses, it was a fun session seeing them doing it. Angel of Bring Back The Arcade, Emman & Michelle of DangBandangs and Adam Elias sang each one too. Alvin MY, the original singer puts a fantastic ending to the new version of his song.

20th August 2012

Second day of Eid celebration held down at my kampung.
Enjoying my kurma ayam, kari rendang daging, serunding, kuih lupis with kuah satay and munching on a variety of tidbits & biscuits to share. No Monday blues for the day, just the lush greenery to savour. And a gathering of relatives preparing for kampung dishes for dinner was absolutely the bomb! *all smiles*

19th August 2012

Eid celebration at my Moslem relative's house in kampung for lunch.
Gluttony day filled with kuih-muih/biscuits & all sorts of goodies. And duit raya too!
Had to go easy with my food intake though don't want to suffer from food poisoning again :p

And watching 'The Expendables 2' was awesome for the night! :)

17th August 2012

Tiny sprinkles on my head...I realize.
 Thunderstorms came crashing by.

Over sized t-shirt, oh, late evening wrapped in my comfy yellow summer pattern comforter. None the unusual. Quiet night, seems like it but showers of heavy drops playing at the background. More like a lullaby for the night. As I laze around with few good reads. Feel like having coffee but the kick-ness of caffeine will somehow ruin the beauty of dozing off....

What a great typical way starting my long weekend holidays.

When the curry house below the E&E studio became our meeting room. Haha.

I could not resist. I am all ears for this. :)

Last minute plan....
Dinner with the boys at a popular Chinese food spot at Damai Area.
And this time, I tried Tuaran Noodle with Rice Wine & Steam Dumplings too! Very Yummy!

 After that, made a surprise visit to Eyes & Ears Production.
The studio was really packed with humans for the night, it felt as if it was 'Hari Raya' already.

Great night filled with songs, shots of candid and sounds of laughter.
And oh, an unexpected session to conclude.

4th August 2012

It's been awhile since we get the chance to do this. And when we do, it's nice to just hang out and get spoil with good food at Party Play, Lintas and acoustic music. Conversations with the sisters from the other side over dinner while chasing my White Kadazan boy nephew and little Madie.

 Saute seafood with chili crab sauce with rice for my dinner meal

Eyes on August

August, look me in the eyes and tell me, will you be good?

Truth is, I have been feeling totally uninspired in somethings. The reality which I could no longer hide. It sucks but I'm glad to know what's real rather than not see it. Things like this doesn't always dampen your spirit instead I'm starting to see things in a more positive way. 

A conversation between those who understands you over a cup of coffee latte will be nice.
A little break from all to get that inspiration back  & maybe a short trip to the other side will be an even awesome one.

Hush...quiet August on my mind... ;)
