Astro Star Quest 2009 Finals!

Woohoo~ Finally... I had my first experience of watching the LIVE at the stadium for the ASQ final. For the past years, I can only watch the competition on TV or youtube as the finals were held at Arena of Stars, Genting. Too far and even if we rushed there after Sat night church service, it will be too late. :)

Well, since now I've got cell members and friends who were ex-ASQ stars (Wan Chean, Seow Mei and Anthony), ASQ is definitely closer to my heart as much as they are. So yeah, got the invitation and tics to go for the finals at Putra Stadium, Bt Jalil. (July 25, 2009 Sat)

I'm also rhere to support our dear GAN WAN CHEAN (also known as ALEXIS), ex-champ of ASQ 2008 as she performed her famous "展翅高飞" from her EP *winks*

We rushed over after the awesome mission weekend service in chc. When we arrived, it was just the 3rd performance at the 1st round of competition. Well, I've got a really got view seating. First floor middle, great view from there indeed.

The place was almost packed. So many people! The live band is really GENG! I salute them. Tight.

The finalists are Min, Fai, Alvin, Yu & Ryan. (刘界辉、钟健桦、黄毓敏、涂富祖、曾洁钰)

All of them brought 'sekampung' of their supporters from hometown.... "Dai Hiong Zhi Mui Hiong Chan Fu Lou"(Cantonese)... mari mari support them! So touched. :P

Who do I support? Of course 黄毓敏 a.k.a MiN! She has been very consistent with her performances. Great voice and good control of pitching and modulation.

Well, the best SMS vote award goes to 刘界辉 from IPOH whio is also the 1st runner up.

And the champion of ASQ 2009 is none other than....

Min黄毓敏!

Well, the other contestants are pretty good too in their own rights.
A happy night.
New star is born.
And now i have to start thinking who are the people that I should encourage and challenge them to take part and win the championship of ASQ 2010! LOL!
If you missed the live show from TV, you can always check out the youtube~ :)

Songwriting Rocks!


Today I received a phone call from an online radio station in Malaysia, I was told that one of the song I wrote "我有我的世界" (Eng: My World) many years back will be aired on their online radio in around August or September, it's kinda 'global'. It was indeed a pleasant surprise...

Apparently the song that I wrote and entered into a songwriting competition final in year 2004 (OMG... sooo long ago! *_*) has been submitted by the organizer to this radio station and it has been selected. They are in search of local passionate songwriters and would like to create a plaform for their songs to be shared.

Anyway, they are now arranging for an interview (will be aired) with the selected local songwriters to talk about the current local songwriting scene in malaysia. I will surely give a big 'piece of my mind'. LOL!


Apart from myself, my sister, Sandra was also being contacted for the same reason. In 2004, both our songs entered the final. Hers was a more emo song though, but mind you... there's a soul in it. The song is called '我好想哭" (Eng: I wanna cry).


So yeah, that's a pretty amazing open door for me as a platform to share the songs written(Mandarin) over the years. But for now, I need to work on the DEMO! *stressed*


Anyway, will take it a step at a time. I believe a good song takes time to 'brew', just like a life with substance take years to 'build'.

In short, I believe they are trying to "transform" the local songwriting scene of our nation, else people will always have the mindset 'greener the grass elsewhere' or '外国的月亮比家乡的更圆'. But I truly believe Malaysia is a 'land of bountiful talents' and it WILL be unearthed someday!

The best is yet to come yo! 所有热爱创作的朋友。。我们一起加油! :)
