The story of “Akar & stage performances”

Quick update: The 5800 ExpressMusic is mine! wahahaha..First time buying a handphone that costs more than RM500. Cool phone!

Yesterday went for Doa Selamat at Shahrul’s. After the makan-makan, we played Cranium for 2 hours. 3 teams of 4-5 person each. I didn’t win but did have a blast playing anyways. Last night went movie-watching with Wafi, Jazdee, Shahrul & Sue. They wanna watch Benjamin Button. Since I’ve already watch it, I went for Valkyrie alone. After the movie (both movies end up at the same time), we went to William’s for late night snack. I ate a Triple H sandwich (fillings include Roast beef, Cheese & beef salami). The sandwich is then wrapped with egg (a la Burger special) and served with Thousand Island & mayo sauce. Only RM5. For drinks, I took the Mango ice blended with lychee (RM3). Wafi ate the Mee Raja Ayam. Shahrul ordered the chicken+beef platter & Jazdee ate the chicken platter.

Move on to the topic of the day. Stage performance.

Since several years ago, Layar Tanchap has been a staple event organized every 2 months located at Shah Alam’s Laman Budaya (near galeri Shah Alam). From 9pm till midnight, young musicians, poet & performers performed their original works in front of a crowd. You have jazz band, r&b singers, live impromptu singing & rapping, singing battle, poetry recital, artistic expression etc etc.

Last month, The event evolved into AKAR. The blog.

Went there armed with my D80 & 2 lenses. The 30mm f1.4 & 85mm f1.8. I boosted my ISO to 1600 and change the color setting to B&W. All pics are unedited to give it a gritty look.
