Irony ..


i would like to begin this entry with a little laughter 'hahahahaha'.ok,i'm not crazy or anything,it's just that irony is so commonly related to laughter.ironic how something can change from one form to another.ironic how you can love doing something or merely love someone for a period of time and eventually feel nothing for them after a longer time.ironic how things tend to take a 360 degrees turn either drasticly or gradually.ironic how i used to fill this blog with all things beautiful and happy during the first 6 months of the year,then it transformed to a blog of sorrows during the second half of the funny as it sounds,i'm glad things are back to normal now,neither too happy nor too sad.again,God had always been emphasising on modesty in everything we do either connected to our religion (or in this case,for atheists,any faith you have) or otherwise.never luagh too much,never cry too much,never anticipate too much,never feel a little too hopeless.
that will be my new life principle,MODESTY.

the so-called humble one



i've watched the trailer..

“I really feel that nature is trying so hard to compensate for man’s mismanagement of the planet. This beautiful planet is sick, like a fever. If we don’t fix it now then it’s at the point of no return. This is our last chance to fix this problem that we have. It’s like a runaway train and the time has come. This is it. People always think: ‘Oh they’ll take care of it, the government; they will do it ‘they’ who? It starts with us. It’s us, or it’ll never be done.” - MJ

i've read the memorable and touching quotes..

"Oh, Yana. Trust me, it's really not about 'what could have been'. It's what is. It's what HE is. He's out there, dancing on the stars, sleeping in clouds, looking over all of us. Everyone has to leave sometime, and I think this was the perfect time for him. He went out on top, truly." - Icarus

i've read reviews..

and now..the moment i've been waiting for,a lifetime opportunity to see my childhood hero live (although not literally).went to malacca with my family and laila.had a wonderful lunch at dataran pahlawan foodcourt before going for a little shopping spree.eventually went off with laila and walked all over.spent heck a lot before the movie began(which was 3.10pm).booked the tickets 2days in advance via phonecall.

yes,i wore the infamous aviator shades,complete with the silver jacket i bought from badger the other day (i knew it would come in handy someday),black pants (no black shoes nor white socks,ripped them up already) and of course,MJ's major trademark,the single white glove (although mine isn't really diamond-studded like his).this made people call me Mrs Jackson.some even sang 'EAT ITTTT EAT ITTT NO ONE WANTS TO EAT IT EAT ITTT' at the's kinda fun being the center of attention sometimes.
on the way,i met an old friend,Ellynda,formerly a convent girl who's now in beauty did her a big favour considering her drastic improvement in looks.about the movie,i'll do comments for individual songs:

Here is the list of songs on Michael Jackson’s This Is It:

1. Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’
-as usual,this song kicks ass when the chorus began.his dance hasn't changed much despite his everybody freezing in an awe!

2. Jam (Remastered Version)
-i love this song ever since i was a kid! again,kick-ass that's all i'm saying!

3. They Don’t Care About Us (Remastered Version)
-remember his last rehearsal footage glimpse on tv?this is it,this song is it.there was a group of dancers dressed in modernised armour suits marching in front of a blue screen,the aftereffect was really amazing! they had cgi effects that multiplied 10 soldiers into a whole army! really amazing,the vocals,the riffs by orianthi,even the remix.

4. Human Nature Michael Jackson
watch this clip and you will know his passion (and sometimes sense of humor,LOL)

it made the whole audience laugh!

5. Smooth Criminal (Radio Edit)
-this one was amazing too!they had a movie clip back from the 60s where MJ was one of the stars.'twas spectacular.i expected him to mess up some of the dancesteps and yet again,he shut me up with his moves! it was as if he was 17 again,with the outlook of a 50-year-old man.

6. The Way You Make Me Feel (Remastered Version)
7. Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground) (Remastered Single Version)
-undescribable,no words are able to describe these performances of his or what could have beeen

8. I Just Can’t Stop Loving You (Remastered Version featuring Siedah Garrett)
-Judith Hill and MJ wouldve made a great duet team! of course,eventually hated judith for staring into Mj's eyes such a way,haha.MJ usually rehearses by minimizing the usage of his vocals,which means he considers rehearsals as 'a rough idea of the final performance'.instead,the diligence of the whole team made him sang his heart out,which kinda pisses him off although slightly.

9. Thriller
-in my oppinion,thriller has the best special effects and gimmicks next to earth song and man in the mirror.all the dancers were made into zombies once again,just like in the video but with added special effects.MJ's dance in this song wasn't really as expected,but i still say he could perform well at the very least.

10. Beat It (Single Version)
-i'm amazed how his vocal projection has no difference when compared to the recorded version.i tried to find signs to investigate whether or not he was lip-synchronizing but i found no evidence at all! the arrangement was slightly altered so it's IMPOSSIBLE for him to do so.

11. Black Or White (Remastered Version)
-started off with the usual 'mischievous macaulay culkin' scene where mac was seen to have blasted his dad towards space with his electric guitar waves.the audience at the cinema,presumably first-timers of watching the black or white video,found it a new experience while in truth,MJ's been doing Black Or WHite in such a way since like forever! once again,vocal projection and stage presence are out of this world!

12. Earth Song (Remastered Version)
in contrast to Black Or White,this song also brings the message of world peace but it brought tears to the audience.beginning with the scene of a little girl who risked her life just to save mother nature,along with the destruction shown and MJ's little message before the show began had everyone weeping in regret.the message was transmitted well,if only it happened.

13. Billie Jean (Single Version)
-everyone thought it was from the 60s while actually it's from the 70s! yes wasn't that long ago and MJ still has it!

14. Man In The Mirror (Remastered Version)
-MJ's favourite part of the show.he will end this song by soaring into the air towards the audience before being jet-packed into space.

15. This Is It
-fantastic song,fantastic was touching..seriously...

overall: spectacular angle of MJ in his final days.he started his life as a performer and ended it the same way.his passion,the love,the coming together made the show worthwhile and it was a totally heartstopping final curtain call.indeed,he did his job well and may he rest in peace.may all the rumors about him finally fade away.god bless.his legacy lives on.

after the show,i decided to look for an MJ t-shirt so we moved to a shop called Inverno at mahkota parade.i found two shirts,Thriller and was a hard decision since both looked nice but finally i decided to get the TII tshirt that cost 79.90! wtf man.just as i was about to walk out,i saw mika's THE BOY WHO KNEW TOO MUCH! even with a free tote bag to,there goes 75% of my monthly allowance,spent them money on a Mika CD and Mike's TII shirt.ahhh my 2 michaels <3

went up to taming sari for a little view on Malacca before heading to a seafood's a view scenic shots i managed to capture before my camera battery went flat..

and here they retail outcome! LOL.

that's all i guess.stay tuned,all-mika post coming up.

crazy over Mika.
