Hi guys,

I'm already on RAYA mood. SO there won't be much blog updates during this festive season. (Not that I regularly update the blog anyway). Anyhow, drive safe during the holidays.

The blog will resume after my holiday. (If and only if I have stuff to blog about ;-)


Went to Swee's BodyPump class yesterday at the Curve. It was my first Pump class after the injury.
All I can say that it's tough.... Arrrrgh... Lots of catch-up need to be done...

I'll be going back to Terengganu tomorrow till Oct 12. So I won't be in any gym class or jamming... I will certainly miss 'em dearly......

Was digging my older photos and would like to share some photos on some recording session that I had last time..... Nothing much special... Just some pics that's all.

P/S : As you can see, I was skinny last time. I'm happy that I look better now hehehe.



This is the picture of my rabbit, died on 20th Sept 2001. She was 6 years old when she died. I miss her dearly....



Just wanna share with you guys a song that I really liked from Alanis Morrisette.
The song was written by Alanis Morissette and Glen Ballard, titled "Ironic".

Check out the lyrics. It's really cool.

written by Alanis Morissette & Glen Ballard

An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
It's a black fly in your Chardonnay
It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
Isn't it ironic ... don't you think


It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought ... it figures

Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids good-bye
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down he thought
'Well isn't this nice...'
And isn't it ironic ... don't you think
Repeat Chorus

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything's okay and everything's going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think everything's gone wrong and everything blows up
In your face

It's a traffic jam when you're already late
It's a no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
It's meeting the man of my dreams
And then meeting his beautiful wife
And isn't it ironic... don't you think
A little too ironic... and yeah I really do think...
Repeat Chorus

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
Helping you out

《Love Goes Around》


2008年8月16日是“第四届全国大专华语歌曲创作比赛”的决赛日子,英文名为"Inter-Varsity Song Composing Contest",简称为"IVSC IV"。地点在MMU, Cyberjaya举行。我也以乐手的身份参与这次的比赛。不过,我代表的不是国民大学新调子参加比赛,而是代表马拉亚大学(马大UM)摇篮手参加比赛。


那天,马大摇篮手入围的歌曲有3首歌,分别是《Love Goes Around》,《你走了》,《我有我自由》。

《我有我自由》是一首节奏较轻快,带有Fusion Pop的感觉。词曲我不妨多说,编曲方面还有很多进步的空间。可惜是练习时间太少和太迟了,来不及补救。对我来说,这首歌的主要backbone是鼓和贝斯的配搭,因为这首歌是以groove为主。鼓和贝斯的编排欠佳,再加上歌手的range不搭。这个key对男主音很低,因此也为编曲大打折扣。再加上本人的错notes哈哈哈。不好意思啦。。。

《你走了》是受很伤感的歌,所以在编曲上不能太过喧宾夺主,好让整首歌的感觉能够通过歌手的演绎,加上适中编曲的配搭,完整的带出来。这一点,这个编曲做到了。唯一缺的就是少了swelling cymbal的效果,在适当的时候把感觉推上更高一层。主音很漂亮。。。哈哈哈(她看到了一定会很爽)

《Love Goes Around》是首典型抒情歌。我也不知道要怎样评,因为太典型了。虽然是一首很容易的歌,但我觉得是练习不够,导致整个band都不是很tight,感觉不够候。可惜。


至于主办当局这次的安排,我觉得不妥当。原本说好了一首歌有15分钟sound check。不过,还是有些参赛者一直拖拖拖拖拖拖到超时,也不见得有主办当局工作人员在那里跟负责音响的人协调。当轮到我们3首歌一起soundcheck时,就一直催我们快点收工。理应来说我们应该有45分钟来soundcheck。这样,对我们很不公平。再加上食物安排不够,以及我在后台看到一些情景,让我觉得主办当局的工作人员没有站好自己的岗位,也不完全清楚整个流程。
