Happy Chinese New Year folks!

Gong xi fa cai, ang pau na lai!!! Anyway, haven't been able to blog earlier because I've either been busy ushering the new year at work, at home, with the girlfriends or family reunions and open houses! It's been a crazy start to the new year and I've only just begun to relax, start reading/blogging again!

Talking about open houses, it seems that aunties and uncles are so reluctant to give angpau this year, enough to as me, when am I gonna get married?? Pffffttttt! Uncle, auntie, unlike all those couple racing to get married and produce Dragon offspring this year, I might try next time when Dragon year rolls around again, like when I'm 36! I don't see what's so good about being born a dragon anyway, dragon baby parents have to fight for a room in the hospital, compete for scholarships, get stuck in huge classes at school and have huge expectations thrust onto them.

With January almost over, it's time to welcome February! I think I'll be heading over to KL soon for the wacky sister's graduation (she's now a full-fledged air hostess *proud*). Anyway, she seems to prefer this much more than finishing her engineering degree, so whatever makes her happy, yeah...


Anyway, if you haven't watched this already, you should! It's a must for anyone who understands Hakka OR live in KK coz you're gonna recognize some of the places these guys are shaking the snake in their pants at! Introducing the Synergy dancers for Kota Kinabalu performing Sexy & I Know It (Hakka version)!!




Translation by yoogiez & bertez:

Yeah~~~
When I walk on by, chicks, granny and everyone will look at me,
Who's best at singing and dancing? If you're not that fit u better go away.
This is my style, hands on at rapping HAKKA song yea.
My name is Ah Fu, you can find me on Facebook yo.

AUGHHHHH ... look at my Six Pack!
AUGHHHHH ... look at my Bicep!
AUGHHHHH ... look at my Tricep!

AUGHHHHH ... look at my Six Pack!
AUGHHHHH ... look at my Bicep!

There's a snake in my pants, with my permission you can see..see..see..
I'm sexy and I know it, Yeah~
I'm sexy and I know it. Yeah~

If you're going down to KK street, make sure your outfit is better than a chick,
Talking about going to the beach, let me show you what is macho, WHAT!?
This is my style, so many people staring at me I couldn't even go home,
Going out on the street with my girl, if really handsome, you don't need to apply hair gel when you're out!

Gong Xi Fa Cai lor~~~

Meeting Angelina Perete and Roger Wang at Bella Italia

Joined a Breeze magazine contest 2 days ago (got tagged by Dino) for a free CD and a Meet and Greet session with Sabah's very own songbird, Angelina Perete, and fingerstyle guitarist, Roger Wang, at Bella Italia Restaurant. All I had to do was tell them why I liked Angelina Perete. An hour later, I found out that I won! (should totally join more Breeze contests...)


My aunt happened to be there so my mum and sisters sat with them and enjoyed the 50% discount off pasta and pizza every Friday from 3pm to 7pm. Friday nights are also jazz night I think. It's funny when I looked at the menu and found that one of Bella Italia's main attractions is this really old bartender named Ajit! He has probably been there since Kota Kinabalu was still called Jesselton and uses hearing aid. He's quite pleasant and smiles at everyone.

The four winners (my face looks fat here! huhu...)

I received an autographed Butterfly Baby single CD, got a front row table and chatted with Angelina Perete (who I'm super distantly related to, no matter what my mum says) and Roger Wang and family (found out we go to the same church! Really classy family..). There were three other fans there as well, a junior from my high school-Danica (thanks for the photos!), Kenneth (who reminds me of my old housemate Dexter, haha) and one other girl who sat too far from me so I didn't catch her name.

Performing Butterfly Baby!
Li'l cousin Stala wanted in on the action too, complete with tutu!

When Angelina sang Butterfly Baby with her daughter Este, it was amazing and she had everyone's attention. She credited Roger Wang because he was the one who arranged the song since she admitted that her voice is her only instrument. I've seen him play at one of the KK Jazz festivals (2nd, I think) with Mia Palencia and I have one of their Double Take CDs. Anyway, she did a wonderful job despite having 3 mouth ulcers after coming back from Manila! Mouth ulcers can really make a person irritable and miserable (true story)..

(Forgive the selipar buruk, it was raining and I had to walk over from Jesselton Point...)

During the meet and greet session, we also managed to ask them a few questions about how did they get this far in their music career. Angelina has been singing since she was 5 years old and won a few karaoke competitions when karaoke was first introduced. Roger has studied under a few teachers and taken a lot of courses to be as good as he is today. Currently, Angelina hopes to put out a new and original album this year as well as perform at the KK Jazz Festival and Roger Wang will be having a concert somewhere in March or April in three states if I'm not mistaken. I guess we'll just have to keep on the lookout! 

A big hearty thanks to Breeze magazine once again for the opportunity to meet talented Sabahan artistes!!!

Uee & Lee Jang Woo as new Music Bank MCs!




Two of my most favorite TV people are hosting Music Bank this year! Though I'm sure they will be plenty of guest MCs especially when both of them are actors, meaning plenty of projects in their schedules. Uee even has to juggle being a pop idol in After School. Hope she doesn't get too burnt out. Lee Jang Woo (Smile Donghae) makes up the other half of this good-looking duo, though I think he's rather more popular as T-ara's Eunjung's hubby in reality TV show We Got Married.
 


P/S: Catch more Lee Jang Woo hotness in this music video! (Zia - The Way I Am featuring Ha Dong Kyun)
