This weekend was kinda busy....
Was working from 9am - 6pm. Then rush back for a quick shower before heading off to meet up a from Singapore. Ended up they went for dinner in Ampang. So I went to Pavilion for the movie "Red Clift" instead. Quite a good film. Then met up with my friends and yam char till 4am. Damn tired.
Attended a gathering the whole day. Then rush back home to prepare for band practice. The Junk members met at Bentley @ 1U because Choong How want to try the Fender Deluxe Jazz Bass and ended up buying it.... So for the time being, the bass belongs to me because I'm the one paying for him first. Hahaha.....
As for the jamming, most of the songs are in good shape already. However, still need to fine tune some minor details. It's a happy jamming. With Choong How's new bass coming in, the overall tone sounds much better. Too bad he's flying off on Monday to Jakarta for work, so our friend from Ukraine - Melvin will step in as temporary bassist for our practice. Might wanna play T-Square's Explorer hehehe.
I really have to salute the Thais for being able to come up with such brilliant ideas for TV commercials. They are damn creative. (FYI, I'm half THai) hehehe.
Wanna share with you some funny ads that I encountered before and recently.

The jamming session yesterday with JUNK was GREAT!!! We managed to nail most of the songs that we're going to play for this coming August GIG. AND>>>> We have a new saxophonist on board. Eizaz Azhar joined us as a saxophonist. He likes T-Square stuff also. THat's a good thing!!
WE jammed through our setlist and it feels great to finally complete the lineup and the music sounds much fuller than before. However, we still need to work hard to nail the minor details.
A special thanks to Akira for helping us to videotape our jamming ....
Just wanna share with you guys a song that I like very much.
It's really beautiful piece of music by T-Square. I'll let the music do the talking. Hope you'll enjoy it.
My band, JUNK will be playing this song in our coming gig in August.
Went to one of the coffee shop here at Amcorp Mall and queuing up for my turn to place my order. Then there's this 3 lady in front of me is taking their own sweet time to choose what they want to order....
My words to them :
"Hello ladies, the BIG menu up there is for your reference to help you to decide your order from AFAR. If you haven't make up your mind, please buzz off and let the people at the back to order first. Please be considerate."
This reminds me of my similiar experience at other places, which includes :
- ATM Machines
- Ticket Vending Machines
- Cinema Ticket Counters
- Food Counters (especially fast foods)
- Shopping Malls
- Buffet Meals
- Touch And Go lanes
.. etc .. etc .. etc .. etc .. etc .. etc ..
Please be more considerate, shall we?
