Napbas 2011: Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards 2011

6 comments :
Ok~ I think I am a little late with this post, I couldn't find the right time to dish this awesome night out.


Everyone posted this up like a month and a half ago... >.<" gomen!


Well, seeing as RED.FM is giving a chance for someone to a trip to the grammy's, it's kind of thrilling if you actually won it.


Since I am not so fortunate to even give it a try, I had a chance to attend something that was far more exciting in my own point of view.


I was given the chance to attend NAPBAS 2011.


SO AWESOMELY EPIC.

Tweets after tweets and discussions on what to where and how to go ensued for the next 2-3weeks after the invitations were handed out. 

Isaac and I even went on a guys evening out and scouted the whole One Utama for a good and affordable coat but #epicfail. 

Eventually I was able to loan a blazer and Isaac got his shiny shiny from KLCC. Tailored made siut, like mafia.

Then there was the issue of transportation as Putrajaya seemed so far. 

Lucky enough, Nuffnang called.... 

"Ben ar, You want be part of the VOLKSWAGEN convoy to Napbas ar? we got extra space give u la. (macam second rated ) (JK LA!)."

"OF COURSE" said I.

Took off day that day to be prepared for it, lol ... really macam small kid. Not like I was nominated oso , tapi I was very excited, BECAUSE! I am gonna meet soooo many people whom i never meet before in real life.

Haven reach Napbas already meet Teycindy, Jamieliew for the first time. Tall girls there~

The one that pening kepala behind , my ji mui Kah Mon 

Isaac was in front, he very buddy with our friendly driver.

We set off from Zouk KL, cause the after party was gonna be there. 

Took us about an hour to reach Napbas and it was a freaking big place.



Reach already of course mingle mingle jingle jingle lo~ hehe.

PHOTOS!




Soon we were ushered into the main hall to be seated. 

Here is my awesome table.


and then here is my awesome meal

Fine Dining style man, haha 

There were many performances alongside  the award presentations, such as stand up comedies, dance acts and even pole dancing (SHIVERS). 

Time after time, a rush of anxiety comes right before the announce the winner followed by thunderous applauds and cheers.


 I really like how they put the nominations on the white screen behind like banner, it's digital so it changes from the different awards that were given out.


Our fellow happy nominated bloggers taking one last session of pic before heading out to other places.

The night ended glamorously without delay and soon enough we were all mingling and snapping about again. 




Very very happy to see so many faces , so many people whom I wanted to meet but still i shy shy want to talk to them, sigh kung fu not strong enough yet. Must buck up.

We went over to Zouk KL for the after the party and Unfortunately this was the only pic i could salvage over the internet.


Thanks Mich~ for the pic.

Finally, I am gonna blog about this. Waited so long for the right time to blog about this. Hehe.

Well, the thing that always comes up second to the word "Family" during Chinese New Year, is the word "Food" .


Seeing that it is gonna be a another bloat fest over the Chinese New Year period, this is probably the best place for you to go to have it all cleanse out. =)

Play! FT Island Concert in Malaysia 2012

11 comments :
After my awesome Volkswagen Test Drive experience. Went to eat McD with JiaYeen and Michelle.

Suddenly my HTC Evo 3D rings  *annyeongiran mal Hello, hello ijen Goodbye, goodbye* .


I said "Annyeong haseyo~" 

Over the phone "Ei Ben, Genee here , you want go watch Ft Island Concert tonight ar?" 

Me: huh? what?

Genee: You want go watch Ft Island tonight or not? I got a pair of tickets.

Me: *blur* ok ok sure.

*click*

*cricket sounds*

and then

ME- Benjaminfoo

I am going to Ft Island concert man! Hard to believe. Actually I still cant believe


So Genee came over to McD, said bye to Michelle and dropped Jia Yeen and we were off to Stadium Negara. *grin widely*

THANK YOU GENEE!
apparently she don't really have friends who would be interested, haha.

 We went to pick up the ticket and found out it was VIP, wooooots.
I would want to go rock zone though but VIP is a privilege man.

 This is the 6pm crowd but I think some were already here at 6am.

This here is our entraaance , the sangat penting orang entrance.

There was some time left so we decided to take a look around at the merchandises.


Of course the things they sold were not to say up to standard la but den again, the bottom two picture was like a different boy group altogether. 

The girls there took a long time to pick haha. TAKE ALL LA!

We chilled and Anti social a bit looking at our smart phones respectively while tweeting in cyber space! #winningtwitterfacebooksocialmedia.

When the time finally came, everyone gushed in to secure a good place. lucky for us , ours were numbered.so no worries, chillax somemore.

And around 8.00pm we were finally in.

and now the wait. *glee*

 *Look front*

 *Look left*

 *Look right*

*BIG BIG GRIN*

After awhile more of waiting and Genee sulking as she couldn't bring her camera in

The lights turned off.

*screams by fans all around*





They started with I hope, the first song I listened from them, dam awesome stuff.

next it was followed by this song.

"Bing Bing Bing"



After another song, it was followed by their popular

"Hello Hello" which is also my ringtone.


The songs after that were

  • I Will Get You
  • Love Love Love
  • I Want 
  • Let It Go 
  • Flower Rock
If I am not mistaken, could have missed out some! hahaha






I lost track of the songs after that, completely into the mood.

"Their songs are rockish, but behind each song there is a grey sensation, each lyric tells a tale that someone would be able to relate to and even shed a tear for it but they make it so much more soothing than actually just plain rocking. It's comforting"-benjaminfoo.com

Here comes the acoustic performance that left me speechless, so awesome.

Sunshine Girl

I Confess

The concert went pretty crazy well, Hong Ki was simply amazing! Singing songs after songs, I am really impressed considering a lot of the song needs high pitch melodies.

And also here are some effect shots that came out pretty cool. 

 Posterize

 Solarize

 Negative

 Sepia

Vintage Warm

They just kept rocking all the way, it was pretty unbelievable for me to be actually see them perform live in front of me.




They decided to end it with the song "Primadonna" as a tribute to their fans who are nicknamed Primadonnas.

and then they went off stage, the stage was dark, the crowds stood screaming "encore encore"

and of course like many entertainers, this wasn't the end.

A planned encore ensued with 3 last songs.

They came out all wearing white.



Here is the final video of the finale~ so sad T.T


You gotta love the last part when they were singing "like birds" ,  the papers shot out and looked like thousands of white birds.

So awesome la the concert. So sad la end already.
fanboy man me. =).

Bye bye Ft Island, see you again soon.

Thanks again to Genee for the invite!

Pictures were all taken with the HTC EVO 3D
