Fred and Bev’s ROM

My friends, Fred and Bev, met accidentally. Well, they actually met in an accident. Fred accidentally rammed into Bev’s car from behind. Thereafter, they got to know each other and now decided to get hitched.

On 22 August 2009, Fred and Bev registered their marriage before a Registrar of Marriage in SS2.

Couple of months back, KF registered his marriage at Thean Hou Kong, a Chinese temple in Kuala Lumpur. I attended the ROM in a small room located on the bottom floor of the temple.

The Registrar of Marriage in SS2 is slightly different. It is located in a house.

Mr Lim Kok Sai’s living room to be precise!

A long table is placed in the middle of the room. Posters relating to love were placed on numerous parts of the room. It was bloody unique.

Just right outside his house, there were 2 tortoises.

I think it has something to do with eternal love.

Got Ranma 1/2! The Japanese manga about a boy who was cursed to become a girl when splashed with cold water, but hot water will change him back into a boy.

Surprisingly, Ranma’s main audience was boys from elementary to junior high school age and yet we get to see fappable materials.

Even more surprising is that Ranma is written and illustrated by a lady!

You can read the first episode here.

Back to the registration, the registration process is fairly simple. Two witnesses will be present to witness the marriage.

Mr Lim will prepare the necessary documents and give all sorts of advice. The only one I could remember is that Fred and Bev cannot marry another if they are still married otherwise it will be an offence. After all these were done, they were pronounced husband and wife.

After the registration, I was told that Mr. Lim has 50 couple on his list to register their marriage on 9 September 2009 (09/09/09!). Wow, can have buffet party already!

Congrats Fred & Bev!

KF’s Wedding – Part I

One of the best things in life is to see one of your best buddies get hitched. One of my high school friends (and also university mate), KF, decided to get hitched early.

In Chinese tradition, before the wedding day, the groom and his hengtais (brothers) will have to ‘save’ the bride from the evil chi muis (sisters) who will lock the bride up in a room. The evil chi muis will make the groom and hengtais do all sorts of silly tasks in order to secure the release of the bride.

So, we travelled all the way to a remote village by the name Ijok to rescue the bride from the evil chimuis. It’s a small village near Kuala Selangor. Ijok was on the spotlight for a while during the Ijok by-election.

The hengtais gathered at KF’s house early in the morning. On the night before, we received a text from KF asking us to be there early so that we can leave by 8am. When we arrived at 8am, KF was still in his t-shirt. -_-

The dress code of the day was white and black pants. Tie was provided by KF. We got a clip-on tie. All we need to do is just put the tie around our neck and zip the bugger up.

Ping – the Virgin – opening door for KF

The trip to Ijok took us about an hour. It could have taken a shorter time if some of us didnt get lost. Kf’s driver was so good until many of us couldn’t catch up with him.

Ijok – High School Alumni Building.

Road leading to KF’s wife house

One of the Malay houses on the streets

We were greeted by a few evil chimuis – 3 of them were wearing red.

Big Ass J was one of them.

We were immediately subjected all sorts of task but it was fairly easy. It was pretty civil as well. During Timothy and Ka Bien‘s wedding, the hengtais and chimuis were pretty hostile against each other.

Timothy & KaBien’s wedding

Once we got into the house, the chimuis gave us some quail eggs. Kiang and I were required to push the eggs up WK’s pants and cross it to the other side. Kiang and I each had one side. Thank god we can use our hands. Imagine if we had to use our nose.

Halfway pushing my egg, I stopped for a while to wait for Kiang to push his egg through the groin area.

Then when he gave up, I couldn’t find my egg anymore!! ZOMG!! I had to search every part of WK’s legs to find my egg. While doing so, I overhead Hen, who was also subjected to the same torture, screaming, “I’m having a hard on!!”. -_-

Fortunately, it popped out on the floor seconds later. phew

After that task was done, the chimuis made each of us wear a bra. Each bra had 2 letters stuck on it. We had to arrange them to form a word. KF got a panty to go with it.

Since there was an extra bra, we made the cameraman wear one as well.

I must say that the tasks were pretty easy and quick. KF’s last task was just to sing a song. No problem for KF since he’s a big fan of karaoke.

Within minutes, the evil chimuis allowed KF and the hengtais to see KF’s bride.

dearr you dont know what the chi muis had done to meee

The hengtais were relieved of their duty for while. KF and his wife had to go through the tea ceremony.

The hengtais and chimuis were fed roasted pork and drinks while waiting for the tea ceremony to end. We had to sit outside as the house was packed with people.

While enjoying our roasted pork, a middle aged lady suddenly fell on the floor. The lady appeared out of no where. Some of the hengtais rushed towards her. They stood next to her and screamed, “WHO IS THIS ARR????”.

Then one of KF’s wife’s relatives rushed out to check. He stood by her and screamed, “WHO IS THIS AR???”. The “WHO IS THIS” exchange went on for a few minutes before one of the chimuis came to pull her up.

Apparently, the lady had some mental problem and she stood outside the house for some time…

Since none of the hengtais helped the lady out, Kiang decided to be nice and offered her roasted pork. She rejected his offer. Poor Kiang.

After the tea ceremony was done, we headed back to KF’s parents place at Kota Kemuning. Lunch was served. Pictures were taken. We headed home to rest and recharge for the wedding dinner!

Zee Avi

When I first saw the name, I thought it was a Japanese adult video actress by the name Zee.

But I soon found out that Zee Avi is no pornstar, but she’s a star in the US! Born and bred in Malaysia, Zee started off posting her songs on YouTube and soon found herself signed to perform in the United States.

Check out her song below.

I must say, “WOW!”. Malaysia does have some great singers!

Zee hails from Miri, the land of hot chicks. I wonder how come Miri has so many hot chicks. I remember being there couple of years ago and I met this girl who looks like Asa from

It must be the duck flavoured char kuey teow from the market.

From Zee Avi’s Myspace

About Zee Avi

Zee Avi is just 23 but she’s an old soul. A huge talent in a petite frame bringing a universal message from the unlikely birthplace of Borneo, an ancient island east of Malaysia which remains an untouched, natural paradise, an apt description of her songs.

How Avi came to record her debut album in L.A., the first joint release from Ian Montone’s Monotone Label and Jack Johnson’s Brushfire Records, is a true 21st century tale of the way the Internet has transformed the music business and shrunk the globe in the process.

Born in the tiny town of Miri in Sarawak on the island of Borneo, Zee grew up near the South China Sea in a liberal, encouraging household where her father owned an energy consultancy. “I was bred to be a lawyer,” she says, but music was in her blood. Her father’s father sang and played double-bass, accordion, violin and guitar in bands.

At age 12, Zee moved from Borneo to Kuala Lumpur where she has been based since. At 17, Zee started locking herself in a room for hours on end to learn to play guitar. Guitar took a back seat for 4 years while she was studying fashion design in London. When she returned to Kuala Lumpur, she picked the instrument back up and began writing songs and performing with a band.

Zee began recording her songs on a webcam and posting them on YouTube for a friend to hear. “I remember getting so excited when there was one new comment from some random person I didn’t know… One read ‘I’m lost for words – I shall favorite it and ponder if that’s OK,’ ” which was written by Kris Rowley, a U.K. singer-songwriter with a YouTube following under the name Zzzzzzzzap. He began posting her videos on his site, which began a viral snowball effect.

The day before her 22nd birthday, Zee posted what she intended to be “my last video,” a holiday song, “No Christmas for Me.” By the time she checked her e-mail Avi had almost 3,000 messages including a slew of label offers. One email came from Ian Montone, who had been shown the YouTube clip by Raconteurs’ drummer, Patrick Keeler, prompting Montone to get in touch and offer to release her music on the Monotone Label.

Before she knew it Zee was on a plane to L.A. to record her debut with producer Robert Carranza at Brushfire’s Solar Powered Plastic Plant. “No Christmas for Me” was then featured on the holiday charity album, This Warm December, A Brushfire Holiday, Vol. 1.

With an eclectic pool of influences that range from such eccentrics as Cat Power, Regina Spektor, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Jolie Holland, Daniel Johnston and Chris Garneau, to jazz greats Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald, to classics like Velvet Underground and Led Zeppelin, this self-described “rock lover at heart” captures the dark, bittersweet qualities of romance with a crack left open for hope and optimism.

From the sensuous scat singing on “Honey Bee” to the sultry break-up song, “Is This the End,” recalling the existential longing of Peggy Lee’s “Is That All There Is,” Zee is hopeful of finding love, but equally aware of lurking heartache.

The songs on Zee Avi’s debut are about an outsider’s desire to belong and the tentative hope of moving on, filled with regret and loss, but boasting an impish, worldly wise sensibility. “I tend to be a loner,” she nods. ” ‘Honey Bee’ is about a romance between two nonconformists who are different from the rest of the hive, and are trying to avoid the pressure to be like everybody else.”

“Just You and Me,” the first song she wrote on ukulele, has a ‘20s New Orleans swing jazz vibe.

“I get my melodic feel from the simplicity of classic jazz, people singing what they felt with straightforward lyrics and not too many harmonies,” Zee says. “Just a lot of honesty. I’m a girl of simple pleasures.

The elemental acoustic guitar of “Story of…” is enhanced with an Eno-like ambience that add to its shimmering quality, while “Poppy” is autobiographical “with a little bit of poetic license” that looks back at the demise of a two-year relationship.

“My stuff is pretty dark,” Zee admits. “Most of my songs are about the reality side of romance, outlets to vent my emotions.”

While her live experience amounts to playing gigs in Kuala Lumpur, Zee appeared this January on From the Basement, the U.K. TV webcast/broadcast that has featured Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, Damien Rice, the White Stripes and the Shins. From the Basement will also air on the U.S.‘s IFC Channel.

From Malaysia to Los Angeles, Zee Avi is enjoying the ride and ready to take on passengers. “I’m still pinching myself” she gushes. “My parents always told me it’s important to keep yourself grounded. I’m thankful, but at the same time, I just want to jump through the roof. It’s been a pretty amazing journey, getting to work with some really wonderful people, a blessing, really.”

Zee Avi’s Monotone/Brushfire Records debut returns that blessing…and then some.

Monotone Records is owned by Ian Montone, whose Monotone, Inc. manages the White Stripes, M.I.A., The Shins, Vampire Weekend, the Raconteurs, Against Me!, Cold War Kids, Crookers, among others.

Brushfire Records is owned by Jack Johnson and his manager Emmett Malloy and is home to artists like Rogue Wave, Matt Costa, Neil Halstead, Money Mark, G. Love, Mason Jennings, ALO and Zach Gill.

Upcoming Event – New Years Eve

I can’t seem to find any events massive enough to blog about. No outdoor parties and raves. I wonder what happened.
The only thing that seems to be worth mentioning is the New Years Eve countdown at Soho KL at Solaris, Mount Kiara. It starts from 3pm to 3am. DJs are unheard of and they have all sorts of performances. Japanese Anime also got. I wonder if they will get Doraemon to come.

Massive @ Cap Square, Kuala Lumpur

Just as I thought that my raving days are over, Tay, ivN and I were at Cap Square listening to Cosmic Gate and Scott Alert. This is probably the first rave they have at Cap Square and I must say that this is a great spot. It’s quite spacious and the sound system was excellent. The only drawback that I could think of is their toilet. There were less than 10 portable toilets to cater more than a thousand people. We had to line up to use the toilet. While lining up, a girl was standing behind me. She pleaded to me to allow her to enter first. So being the gentleman, I gave her way. When it came to my turn…
Then when it came to ivN’s turn on the other portable toilet, he came out screaming.. “FKKKINNGGG SMELLY!! FUKKKKK WHO THE FKKKK SHITSSS IN RAVEESSS!! ”

Anyway, back to the music which I have very little knowledge, I was expecting Scott Alert dropping some real hardcore and dark Melbourne styled hard house. Unfortunately, it wasn’t up to my expectation.
Drinks including mineral water were priced at RM10 per cup. There were plenty of girls running around offering vodka shots at RM5. Then there were two people running around selling mineral water at RM5 per bottle. I think these people smuggled in mineral water to sell!

Strangely, beer was not sold in this rave.
We somehow managed to scale through some barricades and ended up backstage. We had a great view of the crowd.

Cosmic Gate

At 1am, the crowd started pouring in and the place began to pack. We also somehow managed to enter the VIP area to escape the crowd. Fellow veteran shufflers Azmer, Johan and Jon were there! Great to see old faces again.

Cosmic Gate Opening Set – By the way, the guy who said “brought to you live from” in the video is not me 😛
By 2am, age started to catch up. We took our leave and headed back home. It was a great night. Made me feel like 18 – 22 again!

Crowd at 2am!

Freedom Elite @ Bukit Kiara – 22.11.2008

After doing 1600 rope skips, 120 kettle bell lifts and running 1600m at Pushmore and 2 hours of futsal, I wanted to give this event a skip. The last rave I went was in March and I’ve already retired from the scene. But the all night free flow was just too much for me to resist.
The event was a by invitation only event. There were two venues namely the outdoor and indoor venue. The indoor venue was where the DJs were spinning. The indoor venue was huge and thus comfortably spacious. The bars were serving unlimited amount of beers, raspberry vodka and even mineral water!

Cris @ the entrance (Nice shirt)
Cris, ivN, Elaine, May and I immediately headed to the bar to grab some drinks. Cris, ivN and I immediately grabbed two cans of beers – and that was just the beginning. Throughout the night, we had many people giving us beer and raspberry vodka. They should have parties like this many years ago!!
I was almost falling asleep when we arrived at Bukit Kiara. But once I stepped into the indoor venue, I felt like I was back in Melbourne. LCK’s music rocks!!!!

They had some guys on stilts walking around the venue. One of them tripped and fell flat on the floor. Poor chap.
Inevitably, after couple of cans of beer, the toilet was our second hangout place. The toilets were pretty unique this time round. Instead of individual portable toilets, we were given urinals instead. It was so pack until each urinals had at least one guy lining up behind the user. One chap couldn’t take it anymore decided to do his business at the basin. Bahger!!

Initially I thought we would head home by 1am. But the rave was so good until we stayed on until it stopped at around 2:45am. By that time, loads of people were quite drunk. Some were seen sleeping on the floor and grass. One guy came to our spot, sat down and started vomiting.

There will be another free flow event this Saturday at Mines. It’s by invitation only. I won’t be there though. Amos dont call me!
