i.Gemz, it's OFFICIAL!

Went for my first ever i.Gemz practice today at BGF. We will be doing 2 songs for the upcoming Majlis Sambutan Hari Wesak 2011 Peringkat Negeri Selangor which will be held at Bangunan SSAAS Shah Alam on the 5th of June! Of course as new comer, I don't get to do lead (yet). Haha.... so was assigned as supporting singers for the existing lead. :) The songs that we will be doing are i.Gemz's signature songs it seems, which are Dharma Shines In Me and Breathing In, Breathing Out. Everything went A-Oh-Kay just now.... We got the melody and assigned parts pretty well. Except for me, there's one part that I keep on getting confused as I have to hit the low notes. But I'm learning... I'm learning.... :)

Oh! And yes, like the title of this post has mentioned, I am now part of i.Gemz! It's OFFICIAL! *grins* They gave a welcome "speech" right before we left. Haha..... How...erm? Surprising? LOL! :P :P :P

If you are up or near Shah Alam on that day, do come support us! It's free by the way. Event starts at 9pm. See you if I see you! ;)

400 feet above ground

I did something fun today! *grins* Went with 2 other friends to Pulau Indah, Port Klang for an afternoon of paramotor flight! If you don't know what paramotor is, it's actually similar to parasailing where there'll be a parachute behind you but this doesn't involve any boats. Instead, you are seated on a chair-thingy which is being mounted with a HUGE fan! It relies solely on the force of the fan to push you up to the sky. Can't imagine it? All right here's a pic:

Ran by a company called Air Venture, this flight actually costs RM150. But I bought it at a discounted price from at 50% off! To be honest, I wouldn't have went if it wasn't for the half price. Cause the whole thing only lasts approximately 10 to 15 minutes. RM150 for 10 - 15 minutes? You do the math! LOL!! XD

Overall it was not bad, really. I mean, it's not all thrilling and scary. In fact, I find it very relaxing! Luckily it rained before we came and the sun wasn't completely out yet. So it wasn't blazing hot when we are up in the sky. Mild wind, beautiful view of the Malacca straits, ships, fishermen, and mangrove forests make it a really enjoyable ride!

I would rate it as good if it wasn't for the ever-so-confusing-and-very-high-tendency-to-get-lost-route to reach the take off site!!!!!!!!!!!!! We took an HOUR to find that bloody place and asked about 10 people for directions! The worse thing is, when I called up the management to ask for directions, they just asked me to look at the map! I was totally speechless.... I mean, yessssss........ it's difficult to describe it over the phone because the roads are really secluded and confusing! AT LEAST make a better map with more details on it! I am not sure if it was my problem with the map or it's the map that was just too vague? I prefer to think the latter, thank you very much. :P

We road there was a very bumpy one! I felt like I'm in a kangaroo pouch! No joke! And my car was a total mess when we reached. Muddy....... T_T

To (not) make things better, the whole field was full with bull shits! Literally, bull (and cow) shits! =____="""

According to the villagers there, the roads are not completed yet. So getting there IS difficult and yes, my GPS doesn't register the place too. So, if you are thinking of going, please go early and READ THE MAP PROPERLY beforehand! To find out more about this activity, go check out their website at

Some pics for your entertainment. Enjoy! :D :

Self updates as on 19/05/2011

It was a 4 months hiatus this time... >.< Wow! I realized the older you get (in academic years that is), the less time you have for yourself...

As of today, I had had completed Year 3 of my dental course, which brings down to 2 more years to go! I admit, it's not a bed of roses when I was in Year 3. Handling patients was a challenge, bombarded with constant pressure by lecturers, rushing requirements, competency tests, lab works and my typical day ends at 6pm. Not to mention the need to revise and prepare for exams when those dreaded papers are near. Well........ I have to say that I need to get used to this kind of life as the next academic years will be far worse, or so said my seniors! Sigh....

Well, anyway, boring things aside, I had had many things happened during the last semester. I realized I haven't blog about my drama competition this year! Quite unfortunately this time, we didn't win nor we got any placing. The reason? Hmm.... I guess the story line was a little poor this time. And we made a mistake, we left a gap at the back stage and audience had had a good view on what's happening back there and laughed when they are not supposed to be. But I had fun! I played 5 characters this time! LOL! Yeah I know..... but 3 of them are really minor roles. Not to worry, I swear, next year..... we'll be on top of the list again! A wounded tiger, is the fiercest tiger! And I am soooooooooooo gonna act again for ONE LAST TIME! *eyes shining*

*Theater: Naskah Buat Kekasih; Role #1: Saudagar Abas*

I have been very active in religion nowadays. Ok.... very active is an overstatement. Let's just say I am active. Yes.... I am affiliated to Buddhist Gem Fellowship (BGF) ever since I joined INCOVAR Dhamma Camp in 2009. Recently, I went for an audition to be a part of an elite English speaking Buddhist singing group in Malaysia! They are called the i.Gemz which is under BGF. And has had 2 albums produced already. Their songs are fresh, young and modern. Their mission is simple, spreading the Buddha's teaching through inspirations of music and songs. So..... I went for the audition (one day before my final exams! Crap. LOL!) and...... they liked me! They love me voice! :D And I was asked to join their practices now and maybe will do a debut performance during the Selangor state level Wesak Celebration on 5th June 2011! I would like to say that I am part of them now, but according to them, I am just shortlisted wor..... when will they confirm me? I do not know. Hopefully soon! I love singing and having a chance to record singles excites me! :P

Besides that, am pretty active in sports the last semester too. But no.... not during my exam period. Had a lot of fat storage going on *holds spare tire and starts cursing*. I need to lose them A.S.A.P.!!! >.< Cause I've got lots of plan going on the break which requires me to look good! :P :P :P
Joined an inter-college swimming competition held by my university. First time participating.... didn't get myself any medals. But it was good experience! And swimming is a competition is both tiring AND stressful! Haha.. :) Still in the university's Taekwondo team. Got elected as Treasurer (again). I really wanna quit as I have a lot of things in my mind and I know next year will get worse. But....who knows.... hopefully I can find time doing what I enjoy doing and not just facing books all the while. I need a life man! XP

Currently having a 4-months holiday break! I know..... it's damn long right? Usually we will get only 2 months. But apparently, the Malaysian government wants to synchronize Malaysian public universities academic schedule with those overseas, especially the West, in order to attract more foreign students to our local uni. Which means, I will graduate 4 months later! ARGH! Then again..... I think I should enjoy this break and yes! Blog I shall........ :D
