Music


Watching the Sound of Music for the first time since 2008 does brings back a lot of memories. Why? Because, when I was Standard 5 (2008), I represented my school in a Volleyball competition (Sukan SRAI). So we have to, like, stay at a hostel for 3 days for the event. We stayed at the Sekolah Agama Menengah Tinggi Sultan Hisamuddin’s hostel.

That’s not the point lol, anyway, right before we went there, my mom introduced the Sound of Music to me. I was listening to the songs frequently and repeatedly because I just love the simple tune of the songs. So when I go to the Sukan SRAI event, the songs from the movie (especially “My Favourite Things and “Sixteen Going On Seventeen”) are stuck in my head.

Those songs kept running through my head the whole time, event when I was playing! (I guess that’s why we didn’t win, lol) I didn’t even bring an mp3 to listen to the songs. So when I came back home from the event, when I play the songs, the memories of the Sukan SRAI drift through my head. I can remember them perfectly (not really, hehe) when I listen to the songs. That’s one of the few reasons why I love music, it’s powerful.

I tried that trick once for a trip. I listen to this particular song regularly when traveling to this place. But it didn’t work. When I hear that song (I can’t remember what song, haha), nothing came. No memories of the place at all. Because music works in mysterious ways (like God, lol). It has to came naturally, like those Sound of Music songs.

So when I watched the movie again a few days ago, when I listen to the songs (“My Favourite Things”, particularly), I almost cried (yeah, I’m an emotional wreck xD). There were memories of the Volleyball game drifting through my head, forcing tears to fall from my eyes. Oh how much I miss my Volleyball! :'(

Oh god, emotional much? xD Well, I just love volleyball and I hate SAMTTAJ for not having ‘em. I just hope that this new school have this sport.

Okay, that’s all from me. No pics, sorryyyyyyyyyy. :P Though, I have a song for you guys ;) Here! The song that I was referring to:

Here’s another song from the movie that I love so much. This song does not bring any memories of the event though. :

P/S: The Champions League QF Draw was so unexpected, Spurs got Real Madrid! OH GOD! ;_; But still, to get this far in the competition is enough to make me happy. :D

THE END.

Sorry, the title has nothing to do with this post, LOL. Anyway, tomorrow I will be having my first exam in SMK Setia Alam. Yesterday I studied nothing, okay, Friday night I had a little History quiz with OMBAKK!!! family, heheh. :D

But that’s all, since that, I haven’t read anything. -_______- I only have till tonight to study. Let me list all of the subjects I have to study:

Bahasa Malaysia : What? Okay, I’ll just study last year’s exercise book. xD

English : Collective Nouns, Comparatives, etc etc.

Math : No need to study :p

Science : Chapter 1 only, thank god! xD

History : Chapter 1 & 2. I’ve already studied Chapter 1 and remembered them PERFECTLY, LOL. Oh, and I love chapter 2! Because there’s Frank Swettenham. :p So there shouldn’t be a problem.

Geography : Er. I can’t remember :p

Kemahiran Hidup (Living Skills?) : Chapter 4 and 5. Masakan and Tanaman Hiasan. WTH… +.+

See all of that^ I’m DOOMED -______- And to top it all, there’s Wolves vs Spurs tonight. I can’t miss that! xD I’ll stay up late lah tonight! Hehehe…

Me tonight ^

Okay okay, about the title (if anyone’s interested), it’s a Lee Dewyze‘s song. It may be the next single of Lee. I went to the Lee Dewyze forum a couple of times and most of the people there would like “Me and My Jealousy” as Lee’s next single but personally I love “Beautiful Like You” the most from the album. So I’ll be quite happy if it’s his next single. :D

“That’s all? :\”

Of course! What do you expect ? xD

PS: Keluarga OMBAKK!!! consists of Zidos, Kerol, Syazana and Me, hehehe. Here are the order:

Zidos (my great-grandpa xD) –> Kerol (my grandpa) –> Syazana (my fake mom xD) –> Finally, me! (I’m the youngest <3)

THE END

♥ ♥ Beautiful Like You ♥ ♥

<sigh> can’t I just copy paste from my bro’s blog? -_________- WHATEVER.

My dad bought 3 tickets to the concert and I don’t even know why, lol. Terlalu baik :P Anyway, I’ll just put some pics in, no narratives, I’m lazy! :P Alright, alright, maybe a bit. xD

The tickets.

.

Local Nasyeed group, In-Team appeared first. As the opening performance, I guess….


.

Then, Maher Zain’s friend from Canada, Irfan Makki showed up, performing Mabrouk and a couple of other songs.


.

Finally! Hehehe… Maher Zain took the stage.


.

Performing his songs, ALL OF ‘EM! Just kidding, not all of ‘em hehehe. Gosh I’m horrible at joking. Anyway, Here’s a few pics of him on stage.


.

Close up.


.

Then Mesut Kurtis joined him on stage…

… With kids…

Then blah3x, Maher Zain left for a while and Mesut Kurtis performed a few of his songs. Can’t remember the name of his songs— heck, no, I don’t even know what the songs are called, LOL!

Maher Zain came back after his friend, Mesut finished singing, like, 3 songs, I think. Then Irfan Makki joined him for a while and left shortly afterwards. He sang a few songs (including the new one, Freedom) and finally called it a night.

That’s all. Satisfied? LOL. Just so you know, this is the first time I’ve ever been to a concert and I have to say, listening to live songs is wayyyyyyyyy better than listening to recorded ones. You just got a special feeling listening to live songs, ya know. No? You’ll know when you go to a concert later ;) Just don’t go to concerts that uses auto tune, that way you won’t feel nothing at all. You’ll feel like a robot, just like what the auto-tune sounds like, ROBOTS.

Oh my, so much auto-tune hate in that paragraph xD Okay guys, that’s all, hope you enjoy this little post I made about a concert I’ve been to.

By the way, the pics are all, I mean, ALL by Kak Nuni :)

THE END.
