Recently i ada assignment for my Computer Modelling and Animation class, to model and animate a character. And I've been developing this one character "Arnabill the Rabbit" since i was form 4. So i thot i wana see how would it look like if i turn it into 3D. haha.
This is what i did dulu masa form 4 :
Tolong jangan layan kejiwanganess dia please. Ni my very very very old work. haha
This is the one that i modeled :
Modeled and Rendered in 3Ds max. Buruk, i know. Masih amateur ok. haha

First of all, sorry lama gila bapak tak update the blog. Becos i seryesly tak expect people would actually found and read it. Sebab gua tak promote kot. But to those who bertandang n pay a visit, mekasihh. This blog obviously takde purpose. Just some mindless babbles about my life, hopefully progressing into something better.
About the title of this post, don't worry, it has nothing to do with girls, wet dreams, or anything involving teenage dreams during a period of hitting puberty. haha.
Ok, so currently, I'm working on a new single with Lah Ahmad, a former member of Voices of Euphonious (aka VE). So let me tell u this people, I've been following VE since R&B Hip Hop era baru nak start in our country. I think it was during Too Phat punya era kot, in 1999 to 2002. I was blown away when i heard their album with Ruffedge in Extreme Pleasure. The impact, to me, was as big as the time when Innuendo first came out. They are probably the reason why i want to sing.
So Lah Ahmad is definitely someone that i look up to.
I remembered, when i was form 1 to form 3, i was a (and still am) big fan of local urban scene. Too Phat, VE, Ruffedge, Innuendo, Teh Tarik Crew, Poetic Ammo, M.O.B, Phlowtron... u name it. I remembered, reading the booklets of Too Phat's "plan b" cd, VE Ruffedge's "Extreme Pleasure", Too Phat's project "Phat family"..and try to remember all the names that were involve in the production.
"illegal - Sound engineer/arranger/producer/composer"
POSITIVE TONE. thats where they start.
I remember looking at those two words, wishing i could be there one day, at least see how they work, meet all these brilliant people, and get inspired. These people made great music. AWESOME music. Masa tu baru aku sedar, that's what i want to do. Make music. Be one of them. Inspire people.
So there i was, about 3 days ago, working with the man that i look up to, Lah Ahmad, in Platinum Studios (formerly known as Playtime studios). Not only that, I met another man that inspires me musically (and ideologically) Malique Ibrahim, from Too Phat. You have no idea, NO IDEA at all, how that feels to finally meet all these great people and talk to them in the same night. At first macam segan jugak to tegur, knowing that he's the most respected person in Hip Hop, takut kena sound balik plak. haha. but woah, he is sangat baik wo. beliau adalah seorang yang sgt jujur and sgt stern dengan pendapatnya sendiri. He told me to be confident. "You've got talent bro, don't waste it.". I respect him a lot. And his latest album OK is brilliant. Seriously, its by far his best work. We manage to take few pictures right before i get back to work on the song. And yep, Illegal was there too! (will post the pictures later)
By the way, here's the song that I'm working on. This one is the rough version, recorded at Effy's studio, not the one in Platinum.
Follow your dreams :)

To be. Or not to be.
I dont feel like going home tonite.
I hate it when i dream big,
then people came up to me and give me a slap of reality to my freakin face.
"be realistic," she said.
"u cant do that. u cant do this. not yet. not in 10 years from now."
if i dont start now, i dont think it will happen at all, even in the next 10 years.
judge me from my past.
afraid that i might do the same mistakes.
heh. More like "paranoid".
there's always a way.
Elvis wont be Elvis.

by : Malique Ibrahim (taken from album "Malique...OK")
tidak ada yang lebih menyayat,
dari melihat bangsaku dijajah.
tidak ada yang lebih menyedihkan,
dari membiarkan bangsa semakin hilang...
Aku lihat layu dalam melayu,
aku pasti bukan aku seorang sahaja yang nampak.
ada juga bercadang bertanya tuan punya,
tapi bercampur risau dengan tak tergamak,
nanti dikata tak bersyukur,
dikata tak sedar diri,
jadi aku menyendiri..memerhati..
dan akhirnya mengakui..yang kita sendiri,
membiarkan bunga raya melayu kekanan
dan dibiar bunga tak cantik mekar di kiri.
Aku lihat layu dalam melayu,
tanah air kita yang punya
kita siram, kita baja,
tapi angin api kita lupa.
Mereka merancang masa menjilat bangsa,
13 harimau bertukar menjadi mangsa,
kita lupa...nenek moyang kaya raya,
jangan sekali-kali digadai harta bendanya.
Ku lihat layu dalam melayu...
Takkan melayu hilang di dunia..
Iya...tapi apa guna tak hilang di dunia,
kalau kewujudan tidak dirasa..
petah berbahasa, kudrat tak berjasa..
orang berbudi, kita hanya tau merasa..
Selalu lari bila dirapat,
selalu malu bila soalan diaju;
Selalu segan memberi pendapat,
rela mengikut dari meneraju..
Belum nyanyi sudah bersorak,
suka berjanji dalam borak..
Bukan kata tak ada otak,
cuma tak berfikir di luar kotak..
Ku lihat layu dalam melayu...
Aku jadi sayu.
Bunga menangis, dia mendayu,
mahu jadi cantik tetapi ragu,
Bangunlah semula hidup kembali
jangan tunggu matahari mati
cepatlah mekar sebelum terlerai
perjuangan kita belum selesai...
perjuangan kita belum selesai,
kerana hanya yang cekal dan tabah,
dapat membina mercu tanda bangsanya

1) Dari Jauh
Tiada malam lena tidurku,
Hanya igauan mimpi yang pilu,
kerna setiap kali kupejamkan mata
ku hanya terlihat...dirimu.
Mengapa aku masih menanti,
harapan yang kian tidak pasti,
walau kusedar hakikatnya kau
takkan kembali..ke sisi.
Walau kau tidak perlukanku
Ku tetap mendoakan kebahagiaanmu
Tapi hanya satu yang kupinta
Izinkan ku menyintaimu dari jauh..
P/S: Corny. i know.

Gua dah bosan perform cara sama. Everytime naik stage nyanyi lagu sama. The same set of Hati Ini, Pria Terhebat (with tengah ade dance break), Pada Senyummu and kadang2 ade la selit lagu Bukan Untukku or Dipersimpangan Kenangan.
If im lucky, dapat la jugak perform lagu "like i love u" with dancers Floor Fever crew. Tapi nak bayar dancers tu haduihh....not complaining, but with the hasil that i get from shows, bayar dancers, tersangat lah sikitnya portion yang gua dapat. See, i dun care about the money, u know, as long as i can have great show, im happy. But how can we get a great show with a very low budget, pakai minus one and nyanyi sengsorang on stage?
Audience bosan kot. Im sure. They'll go like, "ohh man, another guy singer from another reality tv show". Camne diorang nak take me seriously if i keep on doing the same thing over and over again? Naik nyanyi turun. apakah??? Everyone can do that. EVRYONE.
Some singers can whale their voice for a whole day long, bile tarik tinggi sket, "wuishhh dahsyat nye ini worang"...but im not one of those singers. Im a performer. I cant just sing on stage pastu diri jer, that wont work.
I have to be different.
Ade few shows i did, i sang Pada Senyummu while lukis a caricature of a little girl that picked from the audience, and also when i sing Pria Terhebat, there's a break where i masukkan a part of Rock Your Body punye beatbox break and i dance to it. And then ade this one show at JB and Kulai, i bawak white rose and kasi an audience when i sing the part "mawarku...tahukah kau.." of the song "Kau Pergi Jua".
But itu suma tak cukup. Cliche. I want more.
I wish i can do something like Futuresex/Loveshow, where i own the stage, the band, the dancers, the lights, the audiences, and the whole goddamn show. Sing all my own songs. No covers. Im sick of singing covers. Now that's, a great show.
Maybe one day people will see what i can do and what im capable of. Maybe one day people will appreciate my efforts to give a great show, and respect me for it.

Sapeeelah yang mencipta blog. And kenapa dia panggil "BLOG"? Why not "ELOG"? We don't call e-mail as bmail kan?
Ok. Saya ngarut. The worst introduction for a blog. And it's my first post. And from my past experience, it myte be the last.
So why do i Blog even thou i tau it wont last more than 2 posts. If blogger.com still available the next 20 years, then there'll be a 3rd post kot. I duno.
Maybe Blog is an 'IN' thing nowadays. People upload their thoughts and feelings thru online. (god, this keyboard is sticky. jenama apakah ini? "TECOM"? apatu?) They sell stuffs thru blogs nowadays. Oh, tau Shopreina? Thats amira's blog jual baju. BAJU. wow, skrg takyah gi Topshop dah bleh browse for baju kan? Is there an online fitting room as well? oh here's the link to shopreina.
its 8.25 in the morning. And its RARE for me to get up this early (unless I tak tido at all). I wonder if Nasi Lemak mak cik klantan kat bawah bukak ke tak...oh. tak bukak. tengah cuti. lupa. haih, ini la yang tak best bile duk hostel mase cuti mid term. Kedai nasi lemak tak bukak. why am i staying in hostel sedangkan its cuti? Well, duk rumah pun bosan also. Kakak goes to work, Madihah skooling, Umi jaga kedai, Naufal, Ayah, Mommy at Taman Kosas. And i left my pc here in MMU, so i stay here la. I got vocal class at 2. or 3. My class usually on Monday at 3 at Platinum Studios, but postpne ke Today sebab Monday haritu hangout with my dad at Klcc....
.....yeah. teringat dat day mase i hangout at klcc. She didnt even look at me. Probably cos the boyfren was there. Or i dun matter at all. at ALL. haih. But she seems happy. Thats all that matters.
