Muse Concert KL

I went to the Muse concert on Sunday 25th Feb 2007. Drove to the Stadium Merdeka, parked my car, walked out with my gf and saw the banners adverstising the concert saying "FOR NON-MUSLIMS AGE 18 AND ABOVE ONLY". Yeah right, as if the people of this country are so abiding. True to what i said, er, can't actually say it straightforward, so its like this, about 90% of the people present for the concert had denounced their religion...
The concert was sponsored by Tiger beer, hence the non-muslims and over 18 suggestion thingy, but how are they going to control the crowd? And if they really did enforce it, there wouldn't be many people going for the concert.
We lined up from 6pm til 730pm before being let into the stadium. Sat inside there trying to entertain ourselves for the next hour or so.
The crowd sitting in front of the stage must have been blind or somewhat, everytime a GWAILO walks onto the stage the would scream and hoot...guess they can't actually remember what the band members look like. Those people walking around were just technicians and stage hands damn it. But it was entertaining watching the crowd. People watching at concert, not too bad. You get to see all sorts of attention seekers walking around in midriff bearing tees, weird hair, Westernized attitudes, speaking of which, this malay girl sitting behind me was somehow so irritated at the clueless screaming crowd infront of the stage she complained loudly to her friend beside her with some accent froman unknown western country : "WHATS THEIR MOTHERFUCKING PROBLEM!". ok, raise eyebrow, whats new eh? next she speaks to her friend in the most erm kampung-ish that was about the only thing she could say in english...I just hate people with lost accents
The concert started at about 9pm. There were no warm up bands like the previous INXS concert, thank goodness for that. Muse came up the stage and started their thing immediately to the delight of the crowd. Everyone was soaking it in. A large portion of the crowd knew the lyrics to the songs and were singing along to it like a giant karaoke party. Not even the national anthem was sung with such spirit.
All in all, the concert was entertaining, little problems with the sound system, the music was louder than the voice, so I couldn't hear much. Wasn't such a big fan of Muse anyhow, my gf got me free tickets. So everything they sang was pretty much alien to me. HaHa. Too tirred to continue now...will sleep first and if I want, will continue what I'ved left out of this post.

War ended

Ok, war ended without use of WMD's
Friends came over to gamble, at first i lost, then i went and washed my face n bad luck away to come back with winning RM90, which is good, seeing i lost RM40 at the beginning.
Will be going to Muse concert at Stadium Merdeka this sunday 25 feb. Hope its well.
Deadline for final year project is drawing nearer and nearer, and i stil havent done much, am i having a death wish or what?

Happy Chinse New Year! Year of the PIG!!

Gong Xi Fa Chai rakan sekalian yang sanggup membazirkan masa membaca blog aku...ok that enuf b.m for me, all i can manage is bahasa pasar...
Spent the CNY eve having steamboat dinner with my family at home, while my gf had hers at her place. As usual I sat my ass in front of the com and played DOTA til quite late, about 4am, then went to sleep. Was awoken by my younger bro shouting "NBA ALLSTARS!"  a few times around 9am...there goes my sleep. Since it was ALLSTAR weekend, and a holiday, i drag myself out to the living room and watched NBA. Nothing spectacular tho, skills challenge, 3 point shootout, running race of an old referee against fat Charles Barkley (Barkley so out of shape, tho he won, he was breathless and it was funny watching him wave the interviewer away cos he had no breath to speak...even tho it was a few minutes after he had won...)
Slamdunk competition...bla bla bla, nothing interesting, seems like all the nice stuff has been done by other people already.
After the show was over...back to sleep. From 1pm til 4pm. Was a busybody here n there til dinner time.
Called my gf to see what she was doing, she asked me to go over, i said no, she got unhappy, put down the phone. I didn't give a shit...then after dinner i got a call to go over the a friends house for some gambling. Called my gf to tell her i'm going out, was recieved with mucho hostility...ended up having a SMS fight that lasted until the next day.
Seems like the chemistry we had between us is fading, if not faded already. I study chemistry, but my chemistry is not working....failure...
will call her again, and see how it goes, either we continue now, or its over
