APM2013 Award Presenters and Winners Snapshots…

APM2013

This is gonna be a brief entry because the photographs that will be featured will speak for themselves. I have yet to start on the review of APM2013 but already have some points in my head, waiting to be typed in this domain of mine. I actually wanted to dump all the photographs under one entry but that will be too lengthy and will take several days to complete and I do not wish to keep my returning readers waiting. Seriously, editing 3400-odd photographs and selecting the best few hundreds to be featured here has been quite a tedious affair. Hope that you will not mind waiting a wee bit more for the review, which I will try to post before the week is out. Till then, enjoy the photographs I snapped of the award presenters as well as more photos of the winners and their victory shots… :)


Miscellaneous Photographs @ APM2013

APM2013

Due to the fact and norm that I traditionally post my annual Anugerah Planet Muzik reviews about a week or fortnight after the event has passed, I would normally fill the waiting time by posting photographs of the Red Carpet event as well as during the post-event reception afterwards. But somehow there was no Red Carpet segment and even more surprisingly, there was no post-event reception this year, which I personally felt was a disappointment, as I had planned to take more photographs and even dedicate a separate entry for it. Still I believe visitors to this blog have been looking forward to viewing photographs I snapped during the event. Well here I am with all the miscellaneous shots I took during the “Walk of the Stars” segment (which replaced the Red Carpet), backstage about an hour or so before the event begun, during and after the show. Enjoy!!!

P.S. I was not able to snap more and better photos of the “Walk of the Stars” segment due to the speed that the artistes were walking out and some were not even stopped to be interviewed by the hosts, due to the lack of time before the event commenced. Hence I did not get good photos of the likes of Bushmen, The Trisno Trio and Altimet:(

Anugerah Planet Muzik 2013 Soundcheck / Rehearsal…

APM2013soundcheck 2013-10-17 021

I know I promised you guys in my last entry that I would upload more photographs of Fauzie Laily and Nurul Huda‘s wedding by last weekend, but I was caught up with several unexpected stuff happening that I did not have the time to upload them. Looks like I will have to push it to a later date once the Anugerah Planet Muzik 2013 fever is over. Speaking of which, I just came back from attending the soundcheck and rehearsal for tomorrow’s event proper over at Suntec Singapore Convention Centre. I have never attended a rehearsal / soundcheck session and stayed on for about two to three hours observing the proceedings before, and this was a very new experience for me. The reason I came down was also to fine tune my camera settings which somehow have gone haywire over repeated tests and meddling on my part!!!

APM2013soundcheck 2013-10-17 013

Indonesia’s S4 in action

I only knew the soundcheck schedule sometime around 4pm this afternoon. Initially I thought the rehearsal proper would be done at night but it seems that they staggered all the items in stages so that the artistes can have ample rest and also to do some promotional work on their own. I thought I could make it and watch Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza rehearsing but by the time I left home, she was almost done. When I reached the event venue, I was fortunate enough to catch her leaving and returning back to her hotel. You can view the three photographs I took of her below. I was pleased that I managed to catch two acts I so wanted to watch in this year’s edition, in action – W.A.R.I.S. and S4. The latter especially had me dancing along whilst snapping their photographs. They really make you want to get up from your seats and join them.

SG‘s very own The Trisno Trio and Bushmen rehearsing their segment…

I tried to get a feel of the venue by standing at the back tiers and I must say even when seated far away, the stage seemed close enough. And the sound quality, oh my God!!! The event has been crying out for such good quality sounds for the past few years and finally, we are getting crisp and crystal clear sounds. But you can only appreciate it best if you are watching it live at the venue. Some acts are gonna make your hairs stand with their vocal prowess and showmanship and with a good sound system, the effect is amplified even more. So for those who are still in two minds whether to catch it live at the venue or on television, I say, ditch the thought of staying at home and come enjoy an excellent array of performances. At the price you are paying, it will be worth it!!! Tickets are still available at $48, $68 and $88 at all SISTIC outlets and Muzika Rekod

 


Fauzie Laily & Nurul Huda’s Marriage Solemnisation Ceremony

Fauzie&NurulSolemnisation0184

Not surprising, my blog stats jumped these past three days with people searching for photographs of two celebrity weddings happening this past weekend. While one has been publicly known for quite some time and even made known in this month’s issue of Manja magazine, the other has been relatively low-profile and not even announced or mentioned on radio where the radio presenter works, other than subtle hints being dropped by the other presenters. I know there are still question marks out there with regards to Adi Rahman‘s marital status, but yes, indeed he got married over the weekend to Ms. Sharifah Mukminah. Apologies if you entered this domain hoping to view pictures of the wedding, but yours truly was not invited as the event was low-key and attended by those close to the groom and bride. But fret not, cos I’m here to share photographs of Fauzie Laily and Nurul Huda‘s marriage solemnisation ceremony and will share more photographs of their event at both sides of the family in the days to come. So be sure to return sometime at the end of the week for more.

Fauzie&NurulSolemnisation0002

5th October 2013 was indeed a memorable day for both Muhammad Fauzie Laily Bin Ramlaily and Nurul Huda Binte Abdul Khalid, a day they both, and the people around them, have been waiting for ages. The couple have known one another since primary school but only got closer together about five years ago. Finally they have tied the knot and I could see from the faces of all the guests who attended on both days, how happy they were for Fauzie, a person who is very likeable and adored by those who know or have worked with him. I am sure most, if not everyone, who has rubbed shoulders with him only have nice things to say about him. Likewise for yours truly who has known him since before he joined his first Anugerah competition back in 2003, I only have positive things to say as his personality from the first time I got to know him, never changed nor waned till today. He is still the same humble, down-to-earth, friendly, goofy and affable guy I knew. Fame certainly has not changed him for the worse, but make us all respect him even more. He is afterall the local Malay entertainment scene’s favourite younger brother to most of the established personalities.

Fauzie&NurulSolemnisation0011

In truth, I have known about Fauzie‘s wedding date on the day Fiza O announced her wedding date to DJ KC on 12 September 2012. He told me to keep it low for the time being and out of respect for his wishes, I complied to the point I nearly forgot all about it. But as the days neared, we could see the couple getting excited on their respective social media accounts, and who can blame them??? I’m sure anyone in their shoes would be equally excited. Some of us have been through it before and we all know how exciting and stressful it was at the same time for all of us who have gone through our own wedding events. It’s a happy experience afterall and one that we would like to go through again if given the opportunity, but of course with the same person we’re married to. Kudos to Nurul for inspiring me to get back on the healthy lifestyle regime I have somehow stopped-started over the past year.

Fauzie&NurulSolemnisation0097

The couple solemnised their marriage in front of a crowd of about 200 guests, made up of mostly close friends and family members at the multi-purpose hall of Blk 316 Tampines St. 33 at about 12:10pm on 5th October 2013. The setting itself was like a page out of a fairytale wedding and credit should go to the bride and groom’s wedding planner and team for making it possible. Ustaz Syed Ahmad Bin Syed Mohamed was the Kadi who solemnised the marriage. What caught my eyes that day were the wedding gifts which were simple, but an honest reflection of both bride and groom who are down-to-earth people. Instead of a wedding cake by the dais, they had Pulut Kuning instead, in line with the traditions of our Malay culture. Though the groom was nursing a very bad cold that day, he was still upbeat and cracking jokes from time to time to ease any tension felt from within.

Fauzie&NurulSolemnisation0155

Fauzie & Nurul, congratulations once again on your union!!! May Allah bless you both with good health, more happiness, patience, guidance, love and understanding to go through the trials and tribulations, the challenges and cinches, the good and the bad times in a marriage relationship and subsequently parenthood. Also for HIM to grant you both beautiful, filial and pious children. I’ve seen with my very own eyes how you both adore kids, especially how Fauzie‘s eyes light up when he sees my kids. Always touches my heart whenever I see him greet my children with so much warmth and candour, to the point I feel that he already has the attributes of being an excellent father-to-be. All the best guys in your new life chapter as husband and wife!!! Praying for the best for both of you… :)
