Jazz Festival 2008 (Penang)

went to Jazz Festival 2008 yesterday with shir fang, elaine and kim yong. we set off at 9.30 am and reach there at about 10.30am. they are holding a very cool but hot activity during that time - cool because the rhythm they played on all sorts of percussion are very enjoyable; hot because this activity is held under the hot sun ^-^

we attended an indoor activity too. the way the vietnamese introduced their instruments, how they add-on their tradition into a jazzy piece and the use of pentatonic scales in the melody, sounds very interesting to me if compared to others, and more over, they sound nice :)

~bamboo xylophone - 'trung' ~

~performances during day time and night time by vietnamese~

~KOREAN!!! 3 guys in a group, a double bass player(left), drummer(right), pianist(with the hat).~

the double bass player and the drummer were eating when i requested to take a pic with them. see, they're still holding popcorn and beer =P they are all very friendly, even their photographer too! i was impressed with their performance, especially the pianist. he's blind but he played very well on the piano. INCREDIBLE!!!!!

here're the lunch my friends and i took yesterday.

location: Pastamania at Gurney Plaza.

~i'd ordered a plate of tuna and bacon, and a passion fruit italian soda. D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S.~

the desserts are tasty! we ordered 1 Banna Pizza Dessert and 1 Chocolate Mousse.

~Banana Pizza Dessert. YUM! YUM!~

but they sent us another 3 more desserts for free! ^3^

~Chocolate Mousse, Tiramisu and Coffee Creme Brulee! OMG!!! SUPER YUM YUM!!!!~

at the beginning, they free for us only the choc mousse and tiramisu, then they add on another 'free' dessert - 'coffee creme brulee'. ^^

so, why they gave us for free? are we that pretty to influence them to treat us? hahahahahaha! hopefully yes but that's not the reason. the main reason was, they served one of our dishes late, and that's why they treated us these desserts, in order to apology to us. hmmm... are we lucky or what, in this kind of situation? we're all very full after taking the pasta, and yet, they still sent us all these free desserts *swt* well, we're lucky i guess, coz these desserts aren't cheap for us: Choc mousse(RM 6.50), Tiramisu(RM 6.90), Coffee Creme Brulee(RM 6.50).

now, let's see these 4 lucky person -

LLCM examination day [[ 051208 ]]

really hard to describe how i felt this morning.

sometimes confident, sometimes nervous;
sometimes could ease myself into this kind of situation, sometimes couldn't.

the venue for today's exam is in penang. i was so afraid that i :
- forgot to bring the flash cards;
- forgot to bring the books for the presentation;
- forgot to bring those photocopies which i'd prepared for the examiner;
- forgot to bring the note book to revise everything . . .

tu-diaaaaa... almost crazy ler... but luckily when i went into the exam hall, everything's back to normal again, and i even find myself doing better in demo and presentation and felt more comfortable than the other days ^-^ in the viva voce section, the examiner talked to me more than asking me questions. ermm... it's like i'm having lesson, not sitting for exam. i knew that i'm not doing that well in this part, but i'm really glad that i did my best today =)

this examiner is a guy and his name is . . . MR. RICHARD 'LAMB' 'BIRD'. sorry mr. examiner, for not knowing how to spell your name =P

after the exam, evelyn and i went for a movie - 'Madagascar 2' in gurney plaza. evelyn is the one who acts as a model in my demo. while searching for a place to park the car, i banged into a car, and wasted RM 250 to solve this case without reporting to the police -.-" after tht incident, we still kept on with our plan. i'd bought a photo frame for bb cherlyn and also a birthday card for king kochi. king, very touching huh? hehe!

we went back at 6pm and i received a sudden call from ah sir. it's a good news, but i must keep it as a secret for a few days or maybe a few months ^+++^ while waiting for the ferry and chatting with evelyn in the car, an English man suddenly waved and smiled at me. that really shocked me but i smiled back at him later on. at least this time i'm more polite than a few weeks ago, while i talked on the phone while driving, there's a young malay guy ard my age, sitting behind his friend on a motorcycle, also did the same thing, but i just looked at him without smiling. that's really rude isn't it? but pa ma said dun simply smile at strangers . . . so . . . should i smile, or not???? =.="

this is evelyn. this pic is taken in the car while waiting for the ferry.

these are bb lynn's latest pic, took it just now. she's one month old d lor ^O^

many things happened in one day, and i'm feeling really tired now. slept for only 5 hours in 2 days . . . =.= ZzZzzz Good Night.
