Anyway, it was a good session where we basically said whatever we wanted till the show ended, after which we went for brekkie at this place called eatworkshop tucked somewhere in Glenmarie.
JP mostly laughed but I’m really putting this pic for the benefit of all the gals out there...
Naz’s fiancé Sheahnee also dropped by. And if you didn’t know, the couple is currently planning their July wedding, which GUA will of course be covering : )
Naz is also the lead of an upcoming drama called Ghost on 8TV. I saw the trailer and I can tell you that this should be a cracker.
And of course, we watched the latest episode of Malaysiantalents.com

And as I mentioned in the previous post, GUA.COM.MY streamed the event 'live' online, along with near-real time editorial and pictorial updates. Which of course meant the GUA team was hard at work all night long!
It was also a unique experience for me as I got to see the event from FOUR different perspectives; on the TV, online, backstage and finally, in the audience, a few rows from the front. Yup, a busy night indeed it was for me : )
The New Media (GUA.COM.MY & TV3.COM.MY) operations room. Not unlike a can of sardines. But it doesn't mean that it wasn't fun lah...
With my partner-in-crime Paul Moss and "Mr. Voice" Aidel Abd Ghaffar
With Nora, who eventually won for Best Etnik Kreatif song with Samudera
Totally exclusive: A reunion of sorts for ex-Fan Club members, Aishah and Paul Moss
The guest performers were also brilliant, including the Gangstarz champs, The Lima
A glorious end to a glorious night

The first time was in 2004 when I co-wrote the lyrics with Siti Nurhaliza for her song Ku Milikmu. And I tell ya, not many other experiences could ever rival that very first time. It’s kinda like, you know, sex.
But seriously, it was indeed a surreal experience for me, having grown up watching AJL from its very first edition. And to be there with the country’s no 1 singer, and having 15,000 people cheer for you was simply awesomeness of the highest degree. To be honest, I didn’t want that night to end. And it was cool that Siti took home the Best Performance trophy for that song.
I made it the final again the following year. This time with Akademi Fantasia’s first champion Vince Chong with the ballad Mengapa Harus Cinta. There was less people in the stadium that year, but I’ve got to admit that I was equally nervous.
What’s also interesting was that I got to parade two different looks for both finals. The first time around I had my long hair on and very much looked like one of those arty types who didn’t have to try hard to look cool. Haha!
And the following year, I had chopped off the hair and went for the good guy in suit look instead.
I’m just waiting to qualify on an Irama Malaysia ticket so I can go crazy with the tengkolok and keris look…

A pretty intense morning as all the groups made their presentations. And boy, did they deliver. Tons of good ideas were uncovered. So "competitors", beware! Of course the session ended with a photography session. And here's special video from the GUA team...
Posing ala-ala balak control macho (like it doesn't come natually for me)...
Overall, it was a fruitful brainstorming retreat. Although we could have done with more group activities (like scrabble - NOT!). Of course I didn't leave without having some Laksa in Kuah...

The flight was on time and we even arrived in Langkawi 15mins ahead of schedule. Hurrah for AirAsia! (probably they've just received their bonus or something)

Me: So Juara Lagu 3 weeks away. How u feeling lah?
Audi: Mmm, I dunno. Were you excited when you were in the final?
Me: Well, yeah.
Audi: Hmm, maybe there’s something wrong with me then.
Me: Well, yeah.
But it was a good lunch at this Thai place in One Utama.
The conversation was even better as we bitched and raved about the local music industry, online businesses and Pamela Anderson’s latest marital problems.
“So dude, I wanna take a picture. Do something funny!”
Yeah, he’s cool alright.

The first was a new drama which will be shown exclusively on GUA.COM.MY called MALAYSIANTALENTS.COM. Produced by Popiah Pictures, MALAYSIANTALENTS.COM is a mockumentary starring the multi-talented Douglas Lim and features a slew of celebrity cameos including Joanna Bessy, Chelsia Ng and Gavin Yap.
MALAYSIANTALENTS.COM will debut on 15th Jan and viewers will get to watch two new episodes a week, every Tuesday and Thursday.
At the PC, Douglas did a funny intro to the show and screened the pilot episode. I have to tell you guys, the show is indeed funny! Think “The Office”, but more Malaysian. With more hot people in it. “I want loads of HOT PEOPLE okay?” was my simple instruction to Popiah Pictures.
Secondly, we also launched GUA Mobile which allows everyone equipped with a 3G enabled handphone to watch the latest gua.com.my’s video content.
To access the service, one simply needs to just dial *32223, make a video call on your handphone and choose the content you want to watch using the GUA Mobile menu. The content available includes Babe Bits, Doing It Right, Senario Dan GUA, Muung and Kerana Karina.
Currently, GUA Mobile is available to Maxis users only and each video call is charged a flat rate of 30 sen per minute.
Overall it was a short and straight to the point PC that also served one of my favourite dishes, lontong.
So peeps, don’t forget to watch MALAYSIANTALENTS.COM come Jan 15th and those with 3G mobile phones, go to GUA Mobile. Like, now!
