WongFu 4 Lyfe @ Taylor's Campus

Well the dreaded day did come in the end. Wee Phei Yee is at camp, and I went with her bro to Wong Fu. Not really a fan myself, just saw a few videos but im "ok-ok" with them. 

Wee Phei Yee insisted we went for the meet and greet and so I did. Left the house at 130PM and arrived at Taylor's after picking her bro at 3PM, was than told the event started at 7PM. So line up we did for the meet and greet.

The line was LOOONG at 3PM, filled with mostly screaming girls. Well who wouldn't be excited about 2 Asian dudes from the US coming down to Malaysia. (Pun intended, LOL)

At exactly 430PM they popped up above us, as they were staying in Taylor's hotel.

Ok since I wasn't really a hardcore fan I had problems identifying who was who. I kept on asking Wee Phei Yee's bro who was Ted,Phil and Lester. Turns out there was no one named Lester, but his name was Wesley.

Again, screaming girls. Well to be fair, in the mix of the crowd, I managed to meet some people who were studying film and multimedia.

 To my surprise there were like moms there too, yes MOMS. Apparently they are in their 30s, they may look really young (I assumed they were just a year or 2 older than me) So yeah, Moms trying their luck :D, but they were really a good spot, they gave out autographed posters and shook every guy's hand and hugged every screaming girl. They were really shocked and humbled when they saw such a huge crowd.

Couple of performances that night, A band named " Once upon a time, there was a sausage named Bob" played a few of their numbers. Personally they sound like a cross between Evanescence and Papa Roach?

"Quite Impressive" is how I would rate this band.

 Head smashing and banging!

Than there was a dance performance and a kid who did beat boxing which I thought was pretty cool

Than came the main attraction of the night, Wong Fu themselves.

They spoke about how they came about and even showed some of their future projects. They answered a few questions from the audience. A really down-to-earth show in my opinion.

Overall, a good show. This proves to show that Asians will one day rule Hollywood, yeah! I was really impressed with their video graphing skills and their writing skills. Most of their videos really have very good substance. Being one of the few short film makers on YouTube, they have indeed made us Asians proud.

Singapore Night Scape

Couple of shots from the Singapore trip of the city nightscape. 

 Visited Marina Bay and the view was simply breathtaking. Singapore's architecture is simply phenomenal, to be honest, the Sands hotel does look amazing from the outside right, but when your inside you will start noticing weird angles and spacing due to the cone-like structure of the building.

I really wonder if they will turn off the lights here during earth hour.

Why does Malaysian sky scape lacks architecture like this, well for starters, we care more for space than for looks, so it's always the conventional building designs for us.
