Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka!

Selamat Hari Merdeka, NegaraKu, Malaysia
sebagai sisipan sempena hari kemerdekaan yang ke 49,
Kepercayaan kepada Tuhan
Kesetiaan kepada Raja dan Negara
Keluhuran Perlembagaan
Kedaulatan Undang Undang
Kesopanan dan Kesusilaan
penulis agak celaru untuk meraikan malam kemerdekaan samaada di Jalan Merdeka, Kampung Merdeka, Padang Merdeka atau di Dataran Merdeka...
Anda Bagaimana? dimana?

Close one eye....

8.30 malam ini akan berentap dua siaran langsung pasangan selebriti Malaysia.
Adakah siaran Mawi dan Diana so-pathetic di Astro dapat mengalahkan Datin Siti Nurhaliza dan Dato Khalid Mohd Jiwa di TV3?
Ini bukan pertama kali gandingan Astro dan RTM. Sudah banyak kali kerjasama diwujudkan tetapi kerjasama ini diberikan perhatian yang lebih kerana kata media kerjasama ini cuba untuk memintas kerjasama Siti Nurhaliza dan Media Prima.

Apa salahnya ? Ini zaman siber. Maklumat mengalir pantas. Manusia dihidangkan dengan pelbagai pilihan. Pillihan terletak di tangan kita. Alternatif perlu wujud. Tanggungjawab media menyediakan alternatif tersebut.
Pilihan tetap di tangan kita. Yang pasti program terbaik dan paling popular, akan terus menjadi pilihan penonton.

Hari ini 22 juta rakyat Malaysia harus bijak membuat pilihan. Enjoy watching and channel-changing everyone!
(Later tonite, Ramlee will be in his first fitness session in many years with Clark Hatch, Danga Bay. )

“Kemeriahan” tersebut akan menutup pembongkaran terbaru
in Japan Times on the arrest by the Japanese police of top execs of the Mitutoyo Corp., which is a a major producer of precision equipment which originally supplied the nuclear related equipment to Scomi, alleged to be involved in the nuclear black market.
Malaysian police cleared Scomi of allegations that it knew the parts were bound for Libya and were intended for use in its nuclear weapons program.

Should Malaysia suffer the economic sanctions like the ones now envisaged for Iran if it continues to show the same recklessness and disregard for its international commitments? Sure.

Traditional-Jazzy Nite..

I had a wonderful jazz nite last nite with Mr. Farid Ali also known affectionately as Mr. Gambus mesmerized everyone with the traditional Malay instrument, the 12-string Gambus.
The Instrument and the Playa...
Gambus (Arabian Oud) is a stringed instrument like a guitar with a body shaped like a pear sliced in half. It has 12 nylon strings and are plucked, much like a guitar to generate sound, with a plastic plectrum. However, unlike a guitar, the gambus has no frets.
Farid Ali is no doubt one of the finest jazz guitarist in the region. An 'old soul', at a tender age of 5, Farid was already singing Frank Sinatra's ‘Strangers in the night’ in a Singapore radio show. Whilst his peers grew up listening to Hendrix and Deep Purple, Farid was listening to the likes of Sinatra, Nat King Cole, the Carpenters, Perry Como etc.
The last few years saw Farid embark on playing the Lute or known famously “Gambus” in Malaysia. Farid is constantly doing research and developing a concept of the Jazz Gambus. In February 2004 Farid performed with Bobby McFerrin at the Singapore Esplanade, That performance had boosted his confidence with the instrument and had sparked his decision to record his very first solo CD featuring his Gambus.
Plucking, and sings his owned composed songs from his first album, Turning Point and his upcoming album, due to be released during The Penang Jazz Festival.
This was Farid Ali and The Mr Gambus Band 2nd concerts to the “gambus origin land”, I enjoyed and stunned with his ability, full of excitement and jazzy on strings. Bottom line, whacked and jazzy nite! I soulfully enjoyed the show…

These days I listen to anybody and everybody especially to World music and music of my origin.
