Eyes BIG and small. Don't laugh..
What's for supper?
In the end, i didn't have supper. Instead, i went to visit my friend at the hospital straight after the show. I'm so hungry now. Hungry man is an angry man. So i better go to bed..
Ah.. Lorita! MLB thank you for supporting us over here! Be good in your homeland (i like HK too) and take care!!

yeah... more messy equals to more money spent..
sg artiste dun earn alot.. so we're kinda broke actualli..
currently wei qi running packard dell 17" cool thing - his RPM 5K plus...which i will run.. he using my macbook white cool thing - 2.4GhZ 4G RAM.. both running maudio firewire interfaces.. kinda minimal, but cant afford 2 mac pros and saphire soundcards.. which is kinda our dream.. faster RPMs n specs... almost 1.5 times to 2 the specs of what we using.. hence less latency (vital to laptop music)...
hardisk can crash on stage due to high levels of volume.. (SPL)... vibrations.. autoshutdown mechanism to protect the lappies..
hence we gotta elevate the equipment off the ground.. invest on stands n foaming to dampen the vibrations... coolers to cool the lappies on stage.. today walk non stop 5 hrs to get the above 4/5 settled.. just to try our best reduce the chances of a crash on stage.
we're doing our best, n hope nxt time ppl laugh at our band name they'ld laugh at themselves laughing at us after they hear us out haha :)
money not enough (movie part 2 comin out ya)
but such pain can be such joy when ya see the fruits. i mean hear...
seems like gotta save another half yr to one to get the mac pros.
the most important right now... good album..
ya all take care aye?.. tata"

I was at the hospital almost the whole day, visited a friend who's unwell. Before i left the ward at night, an old lady in her 80s was brought in to rest on the bed directly opposite my friend. This auntie was accompanied by her younger brother who was almost as old as her. As Auntie had difficulties with movements and speech, her brother spoke to the nurse on her behalf. Unfortunately, the foreign nurse couldn't speak dialet and Uncle hardly understood english. I then went up and volunteered to help with simple translation. Uncle couldn't answer many of the nurse's questions. For example, any drug allergy? When asked for a Next-Of-Kin contact, Uncle took out his handphone and searched for his own handphone number.. The nurse asked for a second NOK contact, Uncle replied at that time he's the only one and he'll definitely pick up his phone. I learnt that this pair of siblings lived together, their next kin was a niece who was not contactable at that time. Uncle also told me to ask the nurse if they could have financial assistance with the hospital fee.. When the discussion was over, Uncle walked over to Auntie who was lying still on the bed, stroked her forehead and said to her that he's leaving and will be back the next day to visit her. She replied a very soft "Orh" and watched him leave. From that time till i left, i looked at Auntie. She stared blankly at nothing, helpless and lonely. I tried speaking to her a little in cantonese, asking her whether she was comfortable, telling her to sleep early and have a good rest, trying to cheer her up. I didn't know what she was trying to reply. Then before i walked out of the ward, i went up to Auntie again, gave her a wide braces smile and say goodbye. I felt sad.. Not like really upset till i cry, but just sad to witness this happening. Maybe its not as bad as i think, but this is reality.
I don't have a moral of the story, because this is not a story.
I hope all of us will stay healthy and away from the hospital, take care people..
couldnt help but say...
yes...this is reality ppl...
most of our parents have 2/3 of their lives gone...
for us maybe 1/3...
cherish whatever there is left...
it may be depressing.. but we can always look at it either way half glass empty or half glass full.
maybe i'll die of lung cancer you know why...

hey Lorita, yup, read your letter.. means you'll be permanently there from now on? or can come back once in a while for holiday? and the 2 movie peeps.. one yishun one sun plaza.. sigh.. so far leh.. hahaha..maybe can sneak me into the theatres.. btw, tell u all an absurd story. I once bought movie tickets, and walked off without my tics after paying. when i cam back 10mins later, the boy said that he didn't rmbr me buying from him, and that he didn't have any extra tic lying around.. in the end i explained my case to the manager and they ushered me to a reserved seat area within the cinema which i think is for last min problems like my case.. it was a weird experience but turned out ok. Just last week too, the printing machine for the ticket ran out of ink. I had this movie tic with hand written "kungfu panda blabla" and signed by the person behind! haha.. amusing la.. ;)

Ok here's the song that nic recommended - BUT WE'LL STILL SUPPORT ORIGINAL OK? =D
Regina Spektor - The Call (from "Chronicles of Narnia" soundtrack)
It started out as a feeling
Which then grew into a hope
Which then turned into a quiet thought
Which then turned into a quiet word
And then that word grew louder and louder
'Til it was a battle cry
I'll come back
When you call me
No need to say goodbye
Just because everything's changing
Doesn't mean it's never
Been this way before
All you can do is try to know
Who your friends are
As you head off to the war
Pick a star on the dark horizon
And follow the light
You'll come back
When it's over
No need to say good bye
You'll come back
When it's over
No need to say good bye
Now we're back to the beginning
It's just a feeling and now one knows yet
But just because they can't feel it too
Doesn't mean that you have to forget
Let your memories grow stronger and stronger
'Til they're before your eyes
You'll come back
When they call you
No need to say good bye
You'll come back
When they call you
No need to say good bye

goodbye dear friends...
milubing | 31 May, 2008 23:28
will be leaving the country tmr for church camp.. but i'll b back on the 6th of June...
Regarding what time nic's show is going to start..well..i'm not too sure what time.if some how i managed to find out b4 i leave then i'll post. I actually called nic up but he's on the way to rehearsal..so couldn't really talk..rushing.
Since Quizzy_me was asking regarding the keyboard research, here's one of the keyboards(CME VX7) i was considering...
But now i've given up on this one and moving on to another cos i read the forums and it seems like if u update the firmware(version) it solves some bugs but creates more! and i can't rely on a 'beta' type of keyboard that has to be updated with XP!no mac no vista! wow.. scary ya? so in our business, reliability is the key cos we're playing on stage and if half way the keyboard turns into a brick.. yikes..but this new company CME, is moving in the right direction..but it just hasn't reached it's goal of producing a world class pro keyboard. It has motorised faders,internal audio interface,a hell load of knobs pads wheels ribbon,U-ctrl technology, can be expanded into a synth! and more.. of course the hot red will definitely rock the stage.. but not anytime soon.. i'll defintely check it out again in the near future. but for now.. i'm aiming for another keyboard..just hope the good ppl at CME will continue to work hard.
It's times like this that i think of my yamaha MO8..and know that it's really reliable workmanship..but yamaha has got to be careful. There are many new competitors..so it's good for the consumer(me!).
btw if ur thinking, why new keyboard? dun u already have that coffin? haha..well, i'm looking for a midi controller keyboard instead - a sort of shell controller that doesn't have any sounds inside. it needs to be connected to another device (eg. laptop) to 'speak'. and it's time i try out half keys heh heh..
sayonara then... take care mlbians..
