Just got back from the NORTH (Utara) for the BULI BALIK promotional tour and finally back to my awesome home streamyx broadband wi-fi internet connection. Aaaahhhh! heaven is a place called the internet. Not that there is no internet connection up NORTH but kat hotel sana, it's a wee bit expensive-lah for a dial-up connection.
Me and AC MIZAL travelled to Alor Star (or as it is affectionately known as Aloq Staq), Kedah and did a promo thingy at a cinema there and met up with i think about 50 people, mostly kids, at the metrowealth cinema - i swear we were like dua penjual kain batik tersohor but it was fun. Met up with a major kodok up north ZICKEYSSS. Then we went to Sungai Petani and the crowd was a bit bigger, i think it was about 150 people. The very next day we hit Penang. First venue bukit JAMBUL, the complex itself was empty because of chinese new year but the cinema was quite packed. Then we went to Prangin Mall where we pretended to be Cinema cleaners at the end of the movie and started chasing people out of the cinema complaing aloud about how dirty the cinema is. The Audience were shocked to find out that it was us and we all had a good laugh. I would just like to say now that AC MIZAL is Insane cow!!... what a star. He truly is a funny human being and we are all blessed to be able to share his talent. Lastly we went to MEGAMALL PRAI cinemas where we entertained aboout 250 people. Met an old school mate from st. john's ther , Raja Azmir... what a blast from the past that one. Looking at him, i remember the days when we took the 270 Len Seng bus from Bangunan Arab-Libya near the AIA building to go home to taman Permata, Ulu Kelang. We used to laugh and laugh all the time about everything from ponteng sekolah to bukak puasa on the bus sambil korek hidung to kena rotan beramai-ramai etc.. He was always a funny and nice guy at school and pleasingly still is, up till today, but maybe a bit more matured and weathered. I think, i realised then how much i missed the simple uncomplicated life of a student (although we didn't think it was so UNCOMPLICATED at that time) and the innocence of our hopes and aspirations. Nice to catch up with people who was once a great big part of your life once in a while i guess - It sort of gives a reality check doesn't it.
Tomorrow the BULI BALIK circus will be going to SEREMBAN TERMINAL ONE at 12.30 pm and the following day, off to Malacca and Johore. We are giving this movie all that we got because WE BELIEVE in it. WE BELIEVE besides just being a movie, BB has something big to say.
You know guys, i am a very open person and as you can see from the comments, whatever is written (unless it's truly offensive) i will not delete eventhough it is given by a non entity like ANONYMOUS.
i can only hope and pray that we become a society that is not afraid of standing up for what we believe in and are unafraid to be accountable for it. STOP BEING ANONYMOUS. REPRESENT YOUR VIEWS WITH YOUR IDENTITY. THAT IS THE WAY OF AN HONOURABLE PERSON. If you read from the comments from my previous blog there were a few anonymous comments given but this one comment reeally cheesed me off and no, it wasn't the comment which said "watched buli balik last night,my friend beside me (in the cinema after about 30min ) whispered 'somebody please shoot me'.. I dont like it." I thought that was honest and i respected it. BUT what really MADE MY BLOOD GO UPSTAIRS is a comment by really BLUR Anonymous blog reader/commenter who said...
" .... besides Siti Nurhaliza and a few other people who are just talent .... "
what does this sentence really mean? siti is just an ordinary talent? true it may be but talent by itself will get her no where with hard work and "tidak cakap besar" like some good director in the making !
now read what i actually wrote in the blog below
"Lemme let all of you in on one open industry secret that might shock you, besides Siti Nurhaliza and a few other people who are just talents (great talents though they may be) in this industry, NO other persons in the creative field of the entertainment industy in MALAYSIA ever makes any good money from it"
WTF???.... Anonymous whoever u are... U have obviously missed the point. Plus, didn't u care to read the following statement "GREAT TALENTS THOUGH THEY MAYBE!!!" did i say, SITI is not a hard worker?... dude, i know she works hard!!... I am in the industry! We all know, that's why she is who she is right now! besides being her friend, I have much respect for her and her achievements. And your cukup lawa comment " TIDAK CAKAP BESAR macam some good director in the making!" was that suppose to hurt my feelings???...heehee. If it was, then all i can say is....People who know me know i am not that kind of person. so the question now is, LUUU SAPAAAAA?... gua takde duit nak makan nasi, lu nak kasi gua ke? Gua mati nanti, lu nak masuk kubur dengan gua ke? so why should i care what u say... why should anyone care? And besides that, the best part is, lu ANONYMOUS jadi lu tak really serious nak tahu "what the sentence really mean!" Did you really want to know or is it just part of your initation for
i would like to apologize to all my blog readers right now for YOUR STUPIDITY. May time bestow upon you great wisdom so that u may not live the rest of your life, LOST.
POWER TO THE PEOPLE
PS. Selamat menyambut awal muharram too all my muslim fans and a happy chinese new year to all celebrating it.
BE SAFE during the holidays.
