David Archuleta Live In Malaysia 2011

This is Wee Phei Yee's ultimate idol. He has the hugest crush on him so it was only natural that we attended both his concert and his autograph session.

We braved the horrific KL traffic and really expensive Pavilion parking only to be held back for another 30 mins as Mr Archie was running late. And worst of all to being surrounded by 100 young girls and old aunties. Aunties old enough to be his grandmother. Well who am I to criticize, Mr Archie posses powers to attract women that baffles many out there.

To be honest he was a real down to earth person, you could tell when he was so shocked to see a big crowd waiting for him that he even forgot to take the mic. LOL.

He belted a few verses from his song with pure emotion during the signing.

Managed to take some Polaroids with him, but pity her, he blinked when I pressed the shutter.

 Ya, and like it or not, another autographed CD to be added to my collection.

Concert day, 24hrs later. Same story, full of young girls to old aunties. Stadium was almost full could, say 3/4. But I felt Sony could have done better with publicity as his bigest fan base is in Malaysia and is quite sad to see his ticks were not sold out, despite selling out shows in Vietnam and the Philippines.

My overall thoughts, well I got to say that he is really talented, sounds better live than the CD. But his set was too short in my opinion, 1 hour show. But nevertheless his vocals is really good.

He did a cover which i really enjoyed from the 80s.

Oh ya one thing that really irritated me during the concert were these RELA people who kept shooting the audience with laser who were trying to take pictures. I mean WTF? this is a concert sure there will be people taking pictures. And they even had the cheek to threaten me, hello la, my concert ticket is more expensive than what you make in a day la.

Yeap overall a good show but a lil short. Oh ya some videos too :D

Chelsea vs. Malaysia

Received a free ticket to catch the Chelsea match against Malaysia. Took a motorbike ride there and was greeted by a throng of Malaysian and Chelsea fans at the stadium

There was a sea of blue and yellow in every direction and the stadium was nearly filled up to it's brim

Players walking out into the pitch

And of course the bad boy of Chelsea, Mr Anelka

The Malaysian team made a total of 11 substitution, practically replacing everyone in the team. And there seemed to be no way Chelsea was going to penetrate the Malaysian's defence.

So ended up, it was the most BORING football match ever. Both sides did not press hard enough and both sides were making mistakes left and right. But i got to say the Malaysian keeper was top notch, thwarting many attempts by Chelsea players to get on to the score sheet.

So great job Malaysian team, play like this but with more tenacity, and I am pretty sure we might qualify for the world cup :D

An appreciation to their fans from the Chelsea players.
