I haven’t been to that many concerts. It’s either the band hasn’t come to my country yet or they have and I just didn’t have the money to go.
The first real gig I went to was Tokio Hotel. I wasn’t like a huge fan or anything. But it was a spur of a moment kinda thing, where I didn’t know what to do at home, so I called up a friend and she said she was lining up at Tokio Hotel’s concert, and a friend of hers couldn’t come so there was an extra ticket. She absolutely insisted that I come. And I did, asked my mum first whether she could send me or not…amazingly enough she didn’t mind eventhough it was like 5pm and the possibility of traffic jam was like 83%. Did not regret attending that gig whatsoever. The band surely performed their famous singles so at least I was able to scream, shout, and sing their song out loud and not look like that awkward girl who knows nothing about Tokio Hotel. By the end of the night, I lost my voice, my legs were absolutely tired from all the jumping and mosh-pitting. We were so exhausted until we went inside the mall next door and bought 2 large cups of Auntie Anne’s lemonade, and finished it all myself. Bloody good night that was!
Next gig, the same year, 2010, I went to see Paramore!!! That was definitely one of the best gig so far. It was held at the national stadium, so the stage was huge, the crowd was like 4000 people…it was MENTAL! The best thing about going there was the fact that me and my Parawhore buddy didn’t even decide to go until that afternoon. We were on the phone after school still wondering if we should go or not and then BOOM…she was at my doorstep that afternoon, and yeahhhhh we went. Her friend was already there with our tickets, and he also waited in line for god knows how long. Oh good god everything about that day was so epic. The gig…like you wouldn’t believe. May I add that this is the Paramore with five band members. I love Paramore, but I kinda love them more with Zac and Josh in it. The only thing i regret doing was skipping school the next day. Yeahh I know..so not rock and roll of me. I’m the master of skipping school…somehow that day was supposed to be a good day to go to school…..and brag about the gig. HAHAHA Well what’s done is done you know. At least I get to say, “Yeah I saw Paramore live and they were effing awesome dude!!”
The third gig in the year of 2011, Rockaway Festival was held and the line up was so rad. But the most radical thing about that festival was that All Time Low decided to join in at the last minute, conforming their attendance like a week or two before the festival itself. The festival started from morning til midnight. Me and my best buds, Myra and Tash…we went in the afternoon. We had no interest in going so early in the day where the sun was blazing hot and only local bands were dominating the stage. Nahhh we want the good stuff! The first band we saw there was Story Of The Year. I only knew a couple of their songs, good thing they played them because singing to them live was hella awesome! The sun goes down, the stars come up and so does All Time Low. We already met the boys sans Zack because he had to attend a family wedding (Damn you Zack Merrick I really wanted to see you!) They we’re late on stage due to some technical difficulties, so they didn’t get to play more songs. Although they did manage to play like…11 songs maybe I don’t really remember their set list. Hot damn that night was sooo one of the best nights of my life. Sadly though, the boys got banned from coming here again…says the people who didn’t do their job properly and blamed All Time Low for getting pissed off. Pffttt the nerve of some people mannn… Here’s to hoping that I will see them live again NOT IN MY COUNTRY…and preferably in the UK or US or Australia…wherever really xD
The last gig I went to was last year with Tash…we went to see We Are The In Crowd and We The Kings. Another awesome night as well. Even the opening bands were very impressive. Kinda bummed that I didn’t catch their names, but yeah its not really a lost or anything. WATIC’s set list was WICKEDDDD…sang all of their songs…with minor mistakes because I didn’t memorize every song. The songs I actually sing with my heart out and my brain were Rumor Mill, Exits and Entrances, Kiss Me Again, Never Be What You Want and Better Luck Next Time…five out of eleven songs…I’d say that is still pretty damn amazing considering that I have to save my voice for We The Kigs. Tragically, WTK also couldn’t get on stage on time, and they were having more technical problems than All Time Low. But yeah the WTK boys kept their cool and played as many songs as they could. We take what we can get yoww. If was such a fun night until my legs stopped functioning for some time.
Basically, I went to gigs every year from 2010…but this year I couldn’t make it to any gigs. 2013…not so rockin year. I thought I would be able to attend Urbanscapes this coming end of November….but ohhh noooo….I’d be damn to go because I was already back in my Uni. So yaeh, no gigs for me in 2013. Hopefully things will change next year. I’m praying that I won’t have to go see You Me At Six live in 2013. I don’t want them to come here. Not until I have seen them in UK. McFly too….I just realllyyyy wanna see them in London. I’m weird like that.
Hahaha I’ve only ever lived in Malaysia. But if I can tweak challenge a little bit, like places that I have gone to, then this post will be much more interesting.
My passport aint that interesting. But it’s a little collection of stamps of all the places I’ve been to so far. It’s not much but I’m only 20, hopefully those lucky chances to travel the world will come to me. Oh yeah, I’m not gonna list out the places I’ve been to Malaysia…not really in the mood to promote my country right now.
And the list begins with:
1. Singapore - I was so young and don’t even remember anything about that trip. That was the first and last of my visit to S’pore. Hahaha we’ll see if i ever go there again.
2. Bandung, Indonesia - Not so interesting trip because it was a group trip. But places there were nice. Might go there soon enough
3. Bali, Indonesia - Surf’s up, dudes!
4. Sydney and Newcastle, Australia - One of the best 12 days of my life. Considered studying there too.
5. Mecca, Medina, and Jeddah, Saudi Arabia - Performed umrah there…and I just have to go there again, InshaaAllah. Such a beauty that land.
6. Palestine - Gorgeous place with sad story
7. Amman, Jordan - Another beautiful place indeed.
8. Dubai - Okay…I was only inside of the Dubai Airport, but I did see Burj Khalifa and Palm Islands from the plane…foggy view of Palm Islands but it was still something. Yeah definitely gonna go there again and actually stay in Dubai and not just the wicked airport.
9. Mabul Island, Sipadan, Malaysia - Hot damn guys this place is the shiznit! Wicked diving spot and gahhh it’s a haven to my eyes.
Those are all the super interesting places I’ve been so far.
I could easily be tempted to say Friends is the show I am addicted to. Don’t take this the wrong way, I LOVE Friends and you can see it from my reblogs and what not. Friends is an all time favourite show and will forever be in my heart, But One Tree Hill man…I literally started watching this the first moment it came on screen. I thank my sister for downloading OTH in the early years. I remember only watching the first few episodes (can’t remember where tho) then I sort of stopped for whatever reason I can’t remember either. Then one day my sis finally allowed me to go on her computer instead of just using the family’s one. I finally then found her stash of every shows she and I both love. At the time she had downloaded full season 1 and 2 of OTH, and I never left her room. I was able to glue my butt to her chair \for hours, by the end of the night, she was close to dragging me by the feet to get me out of her room. Yeah those were the wicked old days….damn I miss that time. After finishing season two, of course, there was the hiatus every season, so waiting for my sister to download season 3 was excruciating. Again, I have to thank her…because that was when she taught me how to download the shows…I was like 12 i think. That was my job back then, downloading all shows we were watching, like OTH, Gilmore Girls, Supernatural, and a couple more…
The show first started when I was 11 and ended last year, I was 19. I grew up watching that show for goodness sake. You can see how it has my life. OTH ended, but it still lives in me. I definitely love more the first half of the show, so that would be from season 1 to season 4 or 5. I love it more when the characters were still in high school. The story line started when they were just kids. So when they grew up, the show elevated the story line to fit the characters lives. I have nothing against that duh, but yeah One Tree Hill was all about the brotherly rivalry of Lucas and Nathan Scoot, plus the evilness that is Dan Scott.
It’s really hard to fall for another show. I’m a tv show fanatic. I continue to watch any interesting shows, I just can’t find the secret spark that makes one show different from another. How I Met Your Mother, Bones, Grey’s Anatomy, Reign, The Vampire Diaries, Hart Of Dixie, New Girl, NCIS….everyone of these shows are bloody brilliant. I’m not 100% hooked. One Tree Hill will always and forever be in my heart, easy as that.
I don’t know what my life would be if I didn’t fall in love with One Tree Hill. I definitely would’ve not fallen for James Lafferty, that’s for sure. OTH is my life. Ask any of my friends, they will say they are big fans of OTH too….but I am just the darnest, craziest, most obsessed OTH fan there ever was. And also because if anyone would try and take that title away from me, I will take them down anytime, anywhere. Try and challenge me. I will wrestle that person like it was the WWE. My inner lioness will pounce on them like they are a piece of meat. Yeah, I am that lunatic when it comes to One Tree Hill and super duper proud of it too!
I am skipping Challenge Day 16, something to do with what I wanted to do if the world would end tomorrow. I’m a Muslim…I kinda feel weird out about expressing my thought on that. Perhaps I shouldn’t coz I absolutely can express it in Islamic way…but I also have some ideas on what I would do as a normal person who hasn’t gone to all the countries I wanted to go, see all the bands live, and so on. But yeahhh…I’d rather not do that coz then I would feel hypocritical of myself. Therefore, the very sensitive topic shall be avoided =)
Proceeding to the next challenge:
What Do Want To Be When You Get Older
If only I could say I want to be happy when I grow up. The thing is, I already am all grown up. 20 years of age is considered a grown up right? Well my age says all that I guess, but my actions and mentality is pretty much stuck between 16-18. I still think I am a kid, so this question is sort of still applicable to me in a way.
My answer to the question is….I have absolutely no idea what I want to be when I grow up. I’m currently studying Tourism Management, and so far I’m doing pretty damn well at it but I just don’t see myself in the industry, maybe, I dunno, the future is very misty right now. You know, like when you are in the car and the a/c is blasted and really cold, and then you get out of the car and your glasses becomes foggy, it seems like my glasses are always foggy and I just don’t see where I am going all the freaking time.
To be frank, if were possible, I wish I could be apart of a band. Any position in a band, I don’t mind at all. I say I’m a singer, I can sing…but I’m not awesome at it. I can’t play instruments, so that’s out. So the safest bet is to be one of the crew. Hell those people are still apart of a band. A band ain’t a band without their crew, right? Give me anything and I’ll take it. You hear me, You Me At Six & Crew or McFLY & Crew?!?
For now, I’m gonna stick to that answer. Dudes I can’t even pick out a degree major! D= I was like from tourism to marketing, to advertising. I have no idea where I belong in this world.
