The One With The Daughtry Concert

Posted in Music, My experiences on July 27, 2008 by steve maestro

And I’m still feeling the after effects of it (what do you expect? Standing drenched in rain for a few hours…).
But anyways, in case there’s people who don’t know, yes, Chris Daughtry came to Malaysia and performed for the Traffic Jam concert on the 26th July. And yes, I’m happy to be able to attend it as well!

Show started at around 8pm, where local acts such as the Liang and Daniel Lee performed as the opening acts (Liang did a good job, but Daniel… I am still not convinced that you’re the winner of Malaysian Idol), and some other opening acts which I can’t remember their names. So for a 5 hour event from 7pm til 12am, the opening acts took up 4 hours while Daughtry only performed for the last hour.

But there’s nothing to complain about at the end of the day, as Daughtry really proved to be a rocking rock band. They played their familiar hits such as ‘It’s Not Over’, ‘Breakdown’, ‘Over You’, ‘Feels Like Tonight’ and many more, but as cliched as it is, they came up for an encore, and belted out ‘There and Back Again’ and the oh-so-overplayed-song-but-yet-still-an-awesome-song ‘Home’.

All in all, not the best concert I’ve been to (still waiting for a rock band to tilt Muse’s position off my all-time best concert experience, though Switchfoot came a close second…), but Daughtry is Daughtry, and I am as the opening line to their song ‘It’s Not Over’ said, “I was blown away, what could I say?”

Here’s a picture of him upclose (no, I was not standing that near to him, unfortunately I stood quite far behind where this bunch of idiotic screaming girls basically screamed the whole time Daughtry was playing). I was not as fortunate as a certain Kua Mei Cher to be able to get a media pass. Haha… just kidding.

Lastly, thanks to Ian for the tickets!

P.S.: Thanks to someone for being there too…


The One With The Garbage

Posted in Emo Moments on July 17, 2008 by steve maestro

It’s 2am now… and God knows why I’m still up at this hour.

A whole long and tiring day tomorrow, and yet, I still can’t sleep…

Cuz I’m asking myself… am I a piece of garbage?

Really, am I? I know, I shouldn’t ridicule God, bla bla bla… but really, ultimately, deep down, I can’t help but feel like a piece of thrash.

People just seem to hate me don’t they? Use me, take advantage of me, talk behind my back, ridicule me… and the list just go on and on…

Am I always this lonely? This alone? When I needed company, you would go away too?

Do I deserve you? I don’t think so…

Cuz I’m, like mentioned, a piece of garbage. Not worthy to be even looked at.

The One With The Absence…

“Absence makes the heart grow fonder…”

Hi you all! It’s been a long long time since I posted anything here… some of you even thought I went overseas or I died or something. The last time I posted anything was almost a month ago… gosh, how fast time flies by. I’m gonna finish my second semester in UCSI pretty soon (loads of assignments… can really fall down and die. Wait, there’s no time to fall down and die! Can die while standing up!), and to the short semester (about 7 weeks), then voila! I’m done with year 1!

But really, I’m just gonna be more and more busy from now on. There seems to be no breaks at all from here (well, except the two month break at the end of the year, but even then, I think I would use that time to work…), and everyday is just becoming more and more like a routine for me. Go to college, come back, sleep, wake up go college again… this whole process is slowly becoming tiring and even boring. Well, that’s the price to pay to be a university student right?

Will update this site pretty soon with things that has been going around in my life lately… til then, peace and take care!
