Can't be held responsible..


For the life of me I cannot remember
What made us think that we were wise and
We'd never compromise
For the life of me I cannot believe
We'd ever die for these sins
We were merely freshmen

Anybody remember this song? OK, better still.. anybody remember this band? This is one of those few 'one-hit-wonder' that I like. Those of you who listens to Mix.fm (radio untuk orang-orang yang dah nak masuk usia ..*beep*) might have listen to the acoustic version of this song. Definitely reminds me of 1997. The time where economic crisis hit the country badly. I on the other hand still a student. It's the melody and the arrangement that got me hooked to the song. The lyrics..on the other hand.. not related.

OK, enough of history class..

And hey, it's weekend again. How time does fly..(better than the pigs..) How about some thoughts to think about over the weekend? That would be interesting isn't it?

1. Ever wonder how our past mistakes made us the person who we are now?
2. Do we learn from our past mistakes and move on?
3. Does our past mistakes still haunting us till now?
4. If we learn from the past.. what does the past actually teach us?
5. Are we sure that whatever things we learn from the past are the real lesson?

THINK ABOUT IT.. Have a wonderful weekend everybody.

p.s There's time when all we need is just to sit back and learn from the surroundings..

Manchester - Germany - Kuala Lumpur

Brief him on how I want it to be


He was in Manchester earlier this month for a show there. He was in Germany as well for the same occasion. Yesterday, he was here at out studio. Not, for to perform but to shoot a few public service announcement, as well as the Promo ID for our channel and broadband portal which will be aired this coming Ramadhan. (oh yeah, it's just a week plus away..)

The two kids are Arwah Zairi of Raihan's children


Anyway, I never do a promo ID with Anuar Zain before. This is my first, although we've known each other for a few years already. It was a quick one but still, it took us about 2 hours to get everything done.

So, it will be online and on Ansar Channel at MiTV this coming Ramadhan. Hope it will turn put as I expect it to be.

We've known each other for years, but this is our first photo together

The team.. One for the album

Anyway, thank you Anuar for your precious time. Have fun on the trip to Australia this coming Wednesday.

More photos HERE

Not just a team.. we're FAMILY!!

she said that I need lip gloss. For what??

We undergo photo sessions for our company last Monday. With the team and experience that we have here, we don't need to hire outside services for this. All done in-house. Here's some raw snippets of what we did last monday. It's a circus!!

the solo session

you heard about the pontianak who goes to hollywood?


Like I said, this is just the raw materials. The final result of this session is on the way. I'll put it up once it's ready. Anyway, ladies and gentlemen... Introducing the wonderful team of ANSAR CHANNEL. (and I would not trade this team for others)

The team 'almost-professional' pose'

The team 'not-professional-at-all' pose


The result of this session??? TUNGGUUUUU...!!!

And rise above the flame...

PARDON ME - Incubus

Pardon me while I burst into flames.
I've had enough of the world, and its people's mindless games.
So pardon me while I burn and rise above the flame.
Pardon me, pardon me...I’ll never be the same.


This 21st Century, image can deceive you. They may look sharp, cool and intelligent but deep down in then are just hollow and disgusting. They may look powerful, but actually another puppet controlled by their master.

What's your purpose of life? What's your motive to live on till the near future? What's your ultimate goal in life? Would it be power? or maybe happiness? Could it be money and wealth? Or could it be popularity and being famous?

Once you answer all that.. there's one more question to answer..

Are you willing to scarifice everything to get what you wanted?

END
p.s I had had it with all these superficial factors when judging a book now is based solely on it's cover.. Thank you reality TV and the people who believe in those notions..

My Prayers To You..

Ohhh, if there’s one thing I hang onto,
It gets me through the night.
I aint gonna do what I don’t want to,
Im gonna live my life.
Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
Standing on the ledge, show the wind how to fly.
When the world gets in my face,
I say, Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day


Remember the time I wrote about Bon Jovi and their works? Well, Welcome to another work of Bon Jovi.

Now, no matter how hard, how bullshit, how screwed up life can go against any of us.. My wish and prayers to all of you..May all of us..

HAVE A NICE DAY!!


END
p.s There's moments in life when things just go hard on us, and all we need are just as many moral support that we can get to go through those times..

Another Double Celebration

Nothing beat good news among families. First, welcome home Ain and EG after a year spent in Stutgart, Germany. Hope you'll find 'sambal belacan' and 'durian' as tasty as before.. (just kidding)..

Here's another joy, about 12 midnight (Malaysian local time), cousin Fifi gave birth to a twin at Nottingham, UK. The babies are a boy and a girl. So, from all of us here in Malaysia (other places, I don't really know..) .. We would like to wish

Change Your View..



OK, I should be writing about this last night, right after the launch function at the ballroom of Berjaya Time Square Hotel. It is in fact a good news for most of the people there, especially our team at Ansar Channel. However, due to lots of work in our mind, even as the most highlihted channel for that night with MiTV Chairman giving the most time to the channel when he was presenting what MiTV have to offer, and also when our beloved PM showing his interest to the channel.. we however treat it as just another day at work. With no photos, no preparation for glamour and just being what we know best.. BEING OURSELVES.

I came late for the function. I got a shooting session at the office to direct. It's a Public Service Announcement. But, since the function is just across the road. Might as well just come later.

The most difficult part of the function has to be answering questions by most friends there.. "who's Channel is this?" .. as reluctant as we can say, we want to say other names but no other names involved here... so, we just say "we are the owners" and shut up.. and start to move on.

You see, in a functions where almost all media 'tycoon' are around. You don't simply expose yourself. I would rahter be in the studio, work the channel up than to be in a function full of sharks.

Anyway, I would like to thank you to

1. Dato'Rosman, who believe in us and gave us the chance to be an entreprenuer. Hence, here's a new channel.

2. Our Beloved PM, who personally like our concept and spend his time to meet our team personally for a brief introduction.

3. The passionate team. (that includes you Lissa ..) for giving the best to make things happen. (I consider it's not happening yet.. but we'll get there )

4. MiTV team.. Celebrate hapa? There's lots of things to be done. AND please (to some of them) .. KNOW THY FRIEND (outer image can be deceiving.. i can be just that if you want to..)

5. Nice to meet you again, (after my long hiding fr any functions).. Afdlin Shauki, Anuar Zain, Aziz Bakar, Izelan Basar, Charles Mohan, Steven Patrick, Sarimah, Dayang Nurfaizah, Izham Omar, Cheryl Samad, Ezlynn and Adibah Noor. (btw, Adibah's debut album is out now, go get it now!)

WELCOME TO ANSAR CHANNEL.


END
p.s No, don't ask me anything on the price of the setop box, or the services provided by MiTV and so on.. I'm not an employee of MiTV, so that's not what I'm suppose to be answering.

Lights will guide you home..and I..

FIX YOU - Coldplay

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears streaming down your face and I

Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face and I

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you


"Hello, My name is Amir... and I, as cheapskate as I am when it comes to buying things for myself, I am an impulsive shopper" .. at least that's how (I think) I have to introduce myself in the 'Shopoholic Anonymous' (IF there is such thing..)

Seriously, I've not been giving myself a treat other things than work for the past few weeks. So, this morning I went to Mon't Kiara's flea market. Actually, I missed that flea-market environnment. The community feista kind of feeling that make us believe "Humans are peaceful creature.. Natually".

anyway, I'm crazy over this song by Coldplay..

END
p.s 5 / 9 / 2005 will mark the launch of the new cable provider in Malaysia.. May it runs smoothly and prosper..
