Not A Fan Of Pasha Nor Ungu…

The blog statistics jumped over the weekend and I wondered why. Then it dawned on me, Ungu-mania hit Singapore the past week. I also forgot that they were slated for a show over at the Esplanade for the annual Pesta Raya celebrations till a colleague of mine who went to watch, sms-ed the same night to say “Pasha is so hot!!!” or something to that effect along the lines, and I watched the Malay news on Suria the following night, where they showed clips of the concert. I think the reason for the jump was because people thought that I attended the concert, which of course I did not. Simply because I am not a fan of Pasha and Ungu. So to my colleague, I apologise if I sounded cold in my reply when I said, “I’m sorry I think you messaged the wrong person…

The day of the concert, 31st October 2008 coincided with 2nd Zulkaedah 1429H, so to call it a part of “Pesta Raya” celebrations is indeed kinda off. So very off. Esplanade should do a bit of homework before naming it a part of “Pesta Raya” cos Raya is indeed stale by then. I know I’m being anal about it cos I’m not a fan of Ungu, nor Pasha for that matter. You people reading this entry who are fans of the group or who had attended the concert I’m sure will be peeved with this entry. LOL, I make no apologies towards a group that has no proper direction in terms of songs selection [singing songs of infidelity (Demi Waktu) and then switching to songs praising the Almighty during Ramadhan and back to songs of infidelity again (Kekasih Gelapku)]. 😛


This blog has been darn stale for quite some time now, which might give you a slight inkling why I chose to create a little controversy with this entry. At times I’ve contemplated on packing it all in. Simply because the current life does not allow me to have time to blog, not to mention the lack of materials to talk about. I think the best months this year in terms of blogging were between MayJuly, when Anugerah Band was going on and I became sort of like the unofficial blogger of the event. Concerts and showcases aren’t cheap (which is why I only limit myself to Anuar‘s concert, though how I wished I could go to Kylie Minogue‘s and Rihanna‘s as well), and coupled with having two kids in tow now, to do a review now (which apparently is the pull of this blog, ok apologies for blowing my own trumpet) is akin to striking lottery.

And so, you’ll be glad to know that I will be attending Anuar Zain‘s concert this coming Saturday 8th November 2008. A review, no matter how short it is, or lack of photographs taken owing to the Esplanade’s anal rulings on snapping photographs, is very much in store. So you should watch this space soon. And this entry is just the start of more rantings to come. I hope!!! No promises though…

Well-known on RIA 89.7FM as a controversial and sensational critic able to invoke thought-provoking and sometimes, fiery responses from fellow listeners. Have since evolved into a distinguished blogger of reputable claim with takes on the Malay entertainment industry and football-related matters. Brutally honest and believes in only reporting the truth as I see, hear or experience it. Self-styled critic who does not mince his words and is definitely a non-conformist.

  1. Greetings PM,

    It’s been awhile since I’ve dropped by.
    Anyway, hope ur Raya has been a fab one… very soon it’ll be Hari Raya Haji as well. Lol.

    I guess one of the reasons ur blog stats jumped cos it is kinda like a gateway to other blog sites since you hv plenty of links to both celebrity & non-celebrity pages. That is, other than the reason readers are hungry for post concert reviews or what nots.

    Anyway, I wish I could go to Kylie Minogue’s concert too… but looking at the ticket prices and the current economic situation – not so advisable.
    I guess I’ll just settle for her DVD… As for Rihanna, I think it’s not worth it to be honest since she can’t really make it singing LIVE.

    Hee. (“,)
