Somethin' To Look Forward To This Weekend..

Yep. I am going away this weekend! Meeting up with friends at the gig on Saturday. The last time I was at a Malaysian gig was few years back. Thinking back of those times when most of my close friends were around, I noticed how fast time flies. I still strongly remember the great fun we had in Newcastle and Sheffield. This time it's gonna be different with a different, new crowd. Not that I'm THAT old but I guess I miss the yesteryears when everyone was so carefree. We laughed, screamed and danced like nobody else's business. Most of them are all back in Malaysia, doing really good careerwise and some of them have already started a family. I guess being a medic really suck sometimes. 5 years in University is long enough for me to have high friends 'turnover'. I'm glad that I am now at the beginning of starting my life too. Honestly, I wanna go back to Malaysia and settle down but I guess that have to wait, at least another 3-5 years.

The first time my close friends were involved in organisisng a BOTB was in 2002, I think. However, I had to give the event a miss. Thanks to my ridiculously jealous boyfriend at that time. Don't ask me why I stayed with him for 2 and 1/2 years. It was a mistake from the very beginning anyway. But I had the opportunity to get to know those people who were in the BOTB 'coz I used to hang out a lot at the guys' place. Those were the good days.

Sheffield was the next location. We had the same bands performing. The event wasn't that big, considering the very tiny venue we had on top of the Khan's Indian restaurant, no offfence. But the crowd is enough to make the event a great night. I remember wearing the same top with Zana, again don't ask me why. I dunno where's the top now though. Zana decided to chuck it away after seeing an old fat lady wearing it on the street, hahah.. .that was so funny. And I think I decided to turn it into a 'kain buruk' after seeing how ridiculous I looked like that night in the video. I remember havin' a nice milky, soothing oreos milk shake at TGI Fridays with most of the band members the night after. The company was good. I wonder how's life treating them now back home.

We then had another gig held in Newcastle. I must say that it was the most enjoyable moment so far. We had this Bruneian friend who was a great entertainer. He just know how to capture our attention with his 'catchy' songs. We also had Dayang (ex 1st runner up of of of the the TV3 song competitions), who gave us the best performance that night. I was only the 'ticket girl' that night but I did helped out organising the gig. It was such great fun. I remember laughing at each others that night while watching the video. Oh not to mention that Sheffield sent a really rocking band that night with kudo as the lead guitarist. You should see the look on the middle-aged MSD representative that night. HEHEH... She must have sworn after not to attend such events. heheh... bless her.

The last one that I remember was the Malaysian and Cultural Event in Newcastle. It wasn't really a gig but we had a band performing as the intro to the night. That was the first time in my life that I actually performed in a band. Of course we had other traditional performances where I did take part in some of them as well.

I guess this time it's gonna be different. Although I do know some of the band members but I wish I can turn back time and feel the same feeling I felt few years ago. Afterall, it's a night to chill out and have fun!


Leaving for Warwick on Sunday morning from Sheffield for Warwick games. This might be the last time for me to see some of my good friends playing. One of them is going back to Malaysia for good and the other one for holidays. But of course the main reason for going is to support my guy :) I hope they'll win the medal this time (as always...) GAMBARRE!! (ok ok I know I'm using this word too much now)
