although i can not match my speed with my running mate, im still able to finish my run and the price for that is my leg's muscle now is in pain...

Saturday, December 06, 2008


I come across 2 friends whom saying that they most hate running sport. It's boring. Feel so irritated when 1st hear, but nothing can blame them.

Running for me at least im enjoying it. Im enjoy running. i got the chances to meet new people around, and they are consistent runners be it leisure runner or professional runner.

2008 is coming to the end, and 2009 is going to start soon. i thinks im going to join each and every run oraganised for half marathon. Great Eastern Run 20k is my 1st running for the year 2009.

Second month

it's 1st weeks of second month im working in the new company.

im survived!

on other hand, my works load is getting more and more. *sweat...

Philips GoGear LUXE

Recently Philips GoGear Luxe is launhed.

Philips is entering the MP3 player market with something vastly different from what they used to do in the past,
and this time round the Luxe might not come with a whole lot of internal memory (just a paltry 2GB),
but it is interesting as it can also function as a Bluetooth headset,
allowing you to interrupt your music session with incoming calls seamlessly.
The one line LCD display lets you know who is calling while your cell phone remains tucked away in your pocket.
Sounds pretty redundant though, since cell phones are pretty capable MP3 players in their own right these days,
so separating that function onto a Bluetooth headset is more of a novelty.
Gotta love the design though as it would go down well with a Nokia Prism in tow.

Source: Cnet

From the newspaper, it's RCP is RM329.

IF Philips has its way, the ­company's newly launched Luxe MP3 player could also be a girl's best friend.

Luxe, which packs 2GB of built-in ­memory, has a jewel-like design and can be worn like a brooch.

The player features the ­company's proprietary FullSound technology to make MP3 songs sound just like high quality CD music by restoring detail to the compressed files, according to the company.

FullSound uses a digital audio algorithm that refines audio output by performing 10 million operations per second to analyse and recompute the music signal before it is sent to the speaker.

The player also offers a one-line LCD screen, built-in FM radio and up to 10 hours of battery life to play music on single charge.

However, what sets it apart from other MP3 players in the market is the fact that Luxe also doubles up as a Bluetooth headset for the mobile phone.

Once paired with a phone, the device will pause music playback automatically when a call comes in. In this mode, it provides users with up to four hours of talktime and up to 100 hours of standby time. Luxe retails for RM329. ZAM KARIM


i managed to try the sound, and it's great. it's really totally different from MP3 that im own now!!! im just loving it.

And for the first time, i was like Sang Kancil visit City, i tried the Bluetooth function by connect it to my W610i. i make a call to my friend and it's act is wireless bluetooth headset.

really thinks of getting 1, but it's not the suitable time yet, as next year it's will intro 4G version!!!

Sunday, November 30, 2008

Pay Slip

Last Saturday, im just got my old company pay slip.
it's ready since end of October and no1 is informing me.

and im also got no time to go collect my pay slip.

i was asking my ex-finance manager, how was my case? is the japanese boss really take legal actions against me?

Yes, they were. They went to labour department and want to makes legal suits against me, but they failed. They failed because they with hold my salary and story is finished.

it's the same case they terminate other staff as well. They inform them: you no need to come to works the next day. It's really happened.

my current status, now is really "pok kai". i need some written document to claim my salary from new company.

1st closing

i can't believe myself, im actually survived the 1st closing, with terible sleeping hours.

i spend hours n hours of completing it and with some guide from colleague. i never complain anything about it, guess im being trained to be workerholic...

my department, my division only got 3 persons. im at 1st also can not believe it, but with some task and job is being pushed down to other dept down stairs. Thus, i believed i still can survive.

for the past 1 week, i lack of sleep yet im still stay awake whole day. it's amazing, im wonder, how i can do it? what i do is just morning, 1 cup of white coffee from nescafe drinking machine, lunch another cup and at 6pm another cup.

but last time, it's wont helping much...

Bad Japanese Boss

im changing new job.
it's happened so fast, im really cant believe it myself.

it's a termination without notice. im really have a bad day , bad time, bad experience with my japanese boss when im tendering my resignation letter. he keep saying be responsiblity, be a man, and he mentioned that 8 years in Malaysia, im the fastest person who giving such notice. Termination without serving notice. later he said he did not know what to do with me. im was like shock n cant things of anything but, 1 thing, i will pay the payment in liue of 1 month notice, tht's all.

my boss is really narrow minded, and he told my finance manager that he did not believe im got a new job. He thinks im want to quits because of he scolded me that day on tiny matter. im was like, HUH, how come he can come to this conclusion, i was so surprise when my finance manager told me in secretly.

so the last discussion, i wanted to know whether how much is my compensation needed to pay, but yet, he told me another thing. He will takes me to the Arbitration Court. Huh? i never heard of this thing also. really pissed off and he really scared me on it. but im believed that the contract never got mention about the legal action, but only payment in liue of notice.

after that, nothing much can be discuss, im just walked out and back home. back at home, i tooks out the contract and terms n condition copy, scan through every lines, every words, there are not legal actions.

at night, my finance manager called me, told me that there's not such legal action, she said my admin boss is insance and over already, she advise me just write another letter mentioning my current salary is used to set off the payment in liue of 1 month notice.

at 5.00pm, i have another discussion round with my japanese admin boss, this time, he report to big boss, project director. this round, he

15 Oct 2008

my streamyx continue still down, keep me in the stone age. im so suffering during night time.
nothing better to do beside watching drama.

last night, wanted do research on the company that im going to attend for interview today, but i cant do it without my streamyx. so i take out my laptop AC adoptor, continue see whether i can connect back the wire or not.

it's seems easy after im dissect the wire. this have let me rethinks of my old time where im helping father installs TV attena, the copper wire is same shape with my laptop wire. and within second im managed to connect it nicely. 1 thing left is i need tape to "tapao" the wound, so that it's wont expose to outside environment.

This morning, wake up, have Oat breakfast and go out tapao nasi lemak. on my way back, the cleaner is seems so worried and scared. She told another cleaner that, someone have suicide. it's Chinese Male Adult. What the Hell... first case happened in my condo...

it's true. when im back to my condo, i go to the baucony and looks down. there's a guy lying down there...just now in the movie... patten as well... and his head got blood coming out.... they did not put any thing, or taken any actions. i guess the guard and the management office clerk are at shock. waiting for police and ambulance to come.

at 9.50am, when im going out for the interview, plain cloth police have arrived and newspaper is put on top of the victim, covering his face.

10.30am, i reached at the destination. it's another interview since im last changed job recently 5 months ago.

filling the application form. finished sharp at 11.00am. the interview is went smooth. with some expected questions and 1 hard questions.

What is your biggest mistake which cost your company during your employment.

answer: it's abit hard to answer, but im trying to turn it another round, it's mistake of almost cost delay of issuing account, but not cost the company loss money.

finished interview, back home, brought a 3M tape, and when im back, im tape the connection, and testing.

it's ON. viva... my lappie is back to life. i can on my lappie with just cost of RM4.00, and that how you can see me blogging in the Starbucks now.

before im come to Starbuck here, im actually planning to online from Old Town Kopitiam, Setapak Indah Branch, but to my dissapointment, there did not have wireless... and im found that there's only have 1 socket to plug.

Tuesday, October 14, 2008


today, something is wrong inside me.

i have done few mistakes in row today.

some of the mistake is silly mistake, can shoot me down.
some of the mistake is really fundamental mistake, shoot me down.

no one i can blame, but to blame myself.

what is the hell happening to myself?
maybe i can give find excuses to let me feel better.

Thursday, October 09, 2008


this week, on Tuesday im started to go for classes.
i should have go to the classes since mid of September, but i did not. i dun know why myself did not wanted to join the classes until this Tuesday.

An open aerobic session joined by Public in field with loud PA system and we all do it together... it's was in Youth Park, every Wednesday or Thursday 5.00pm to 6.00pm.

that's where im learnt my basic of aerobic. i go no problems on the move now. today, i suppose go for the spinning class again, but i feel too tired, so just back home and rest.

Tomorrow, im looking forward tomolo classes which is cardio aerobic, hope it's what im wish for. the feel, the move, and sweat a lots.

OMG... with interest getting stronger with classes, how im keeping my pace with running? i thinks i still will running with a group of people on Saturday Morning 7.30am starting from Bukit Aman car park, nearby toilet n running around Lake garden.

Next Sunday, 19 October, it's Mizuno 10km Runs. it's will be testing time for me to see how's my training so far.

Broga Hill Hike

Broga, a small village in Semenyih, the hill is located about 40min drive from Cheras. Broga Hill, is meant for trekking beginner, no special trekking skill required at all, because it just a grass hill (very suitable for Bollywood movie shooting), it takes only about 30 to 40min to reach the first hill top and another 10min to reach the second hill top.

The hill top is normally windy and refreshing and you hardly found a big tree to block your view. Whole trek will takes about 2hours.

Hari Raya

Hari Raya.

it's today and tomolo.
it's public holiday.
it's Wednesday and Thursday.

with the 1 day leave which im applied yesterday, i got totally 5 days, wed, thurs, fri, sat and sun off day!!!

but im thinks im abit cant used with it. moreover, i did not back to Kedah. im just feel not going back to hometown. just stay in KL.


after we come down from the hill, i thinks we start to come down at 7.00am and we reached at bottom about 7.30am. we were speeding all the way.

we have breakfast at the pasar and i have famous n tasty mee and also the taufu which is using natural water from hill to make it.

we start our journey to Cherating about 9.00am and we reached there around 10.30am. we checked into chalet which nearby to the beach, but we all too tired. we all sleep after have bath and sleep until 4.30pm.

4.30pm, we go out looks for lunch. it's so quite. i thinks it's because of Bulan Ramadan. no food is available within 5km, so we have to drive around to looks for food. then we come to Holiday Villa and have our lunch.

it's an expensive RM27 lunch!!! which is just an ordinary nasi lemak.

back to Chalet, we continue to sleep.

at night, we have seafood nearby our place. too bad, the crap is out of stock, all is being taken by the table next to us. after diner, we go to Club Med.

We go to Club Med, yes, it's correct, we go to Club Med and park our car at the gate and walks other direction opposite Club Med. haha. it's a Jabatan Perikanan if im not remember wrong.

it's a turtle protection centre and where we can see turtle come to shore to lay egg, if we were lucky. there is no people, other than us visiting the centre.

we watched few minutes VCD which shown to us by the person in charge there. after that, we asked them whether we got the chances to see any turtle come to shore to lay egg but the person in charge said chances is less likely. we also ask whether we can see the small turtle??

Yes, you can. You can after make some "donation" and your will be able to touch n take photos and lastly release them back to sea. we agreed, and im seeing turtle for real for the first time.

after release the turtle kid, we give RM20 as "donation" to save turtle.


yellow egg york, that what my friend describe and she said it's not always can see this kind of view. guess we were lucky this time.

it's me. haha...while this is another side of the hill, looks like in the heaven.

Sg Lembing

on 26 September 2008 friday night, we about 6 persons have leaves KL at 11.30pm heading to Sg Lembing in Pahang, somewhere near Kuantan to climb hill.

this is my very first time driving to East Coast. im feel excited.

on this trip, we were planning to see sun raise on Sg Lembing Hill in the morning and after that head to Cherating Beach and Sunday back to KL.

we reached at Sg Lembing about 3.30am and we start to climb up the hill. it's mostly are staircase trail for us to climb up. According to my friend who used to climb the hill, normal person who fit needs about 20-45 minutes, depending on the speed, while our climb we tooks more than that because of 1 of our member do not have stamina, we climb and stop to waits for her.

while on this trip, im trying a few newly purchase item for use. one of it is Sanyo Rechargeable Eveloop battery which is used on my Canon antic Digicam A70 and also IKEA LED lights which act as my touch light for me while climb up hill.

we reached on top of the hill at 4.30am and there is 2 hours gap before we can see the sun raise. so tired and try to sleep but hardly can falls in sleeps. we joke, we walking around and we joke again.

finally at 6.30am we start to see lights!!! im just enjoy it most.

Tuesday, September 16, 2008


it's seems im quite a long time did not blogging.

it's been 1 week passed.

so many things happened. mostly un-happy, pissed off, specially on last friday.

on morning, RPK is being arrested under ISA... no more hold no barred stories.

then at night, the sin chew reporter who reports on "pendatang" also arrested under ISA. Police reasoning is, based on their information, the life of the reporter is under thread.

then the last 1 is teresa kok, seputeh MP who was arrested on her way back home from a function at 11.30pm. im only know this when im brought newspaper on Saturday morning. WTF... never got saw Teresa comment anything also, she also kena ISA...

perhaps, if im using harsh abit the wording, im also will be kena ISA... ???

on this Saturday morning, i have COD to get my running shoe. Saucony.

on afternoon, i went to service my car. it's 30k km service already. i claimed a new disc brake (rotor).

on evening, i went to my friend house in puchong joining the mooncake lucky port gathering. im very enjoy it.

on sunday, 914
i and my friends went to Puchong eat Yong Tau Fu. before that, we went to the Giant Bandar Puteri where my friend want to stock pile up for the coming 916... i thought only im who kiasu, kiasi... last week im already stock up some biskuts. Whereares my fellow friend, he is so kiasu and kiasi than me, he brought around RM200 of food, namely mineral water, express cup mee, biskut and milo. at that movement, i feel im nothing compared with him. im give up to buy anything on that day.

working as usual. at night, there is a massive gathering / rally in the petaling jaya stadium, did not bother which stadium...

nothing is happening.
guess, the rumour speculated is just to scare people like me... *sweat...

looking for the for the coming days...

i got shock when im cut my hair!!! 
i was so shock and worry about my hair!!! 
im just want to get off from the chair!!! 

today as usual i went to the my usual saloon shop E3 nearby my place. As usual weekend i have to waits for quite a some time. perhaps minimum of 30 minutes. Worst i got waited until 1 hour then only reach my turn for hair cut. 

As usual, i normally did not specific who is my hair cutter or stylist. im just want my hair to be cut short and looks nice, that's only my requirement. 

today, it's a new guy. i saw his preparation on the things, i feel freaking worry. plus looking at his face, he did not have much confidence on it. 

as he preparing, 1st pull the troli nearby, then put his cutting equipment. even his water spray also just re-filled. 

when he start to use machine to cut my hair, 
when the machine first touch my hair, 
when the machine start to cut my hair, im shock. im really terible shock. 

his hand and his machine is shacking wihle im experience shock. 
im try to control my shock. 
each time he use machine to cut with his shacking hand, im shock and worry. 
i got no eye to see how he cut my hair. 
lucky nothing is happened to me. im still alive. 

after use machine, then cut using hand. 
for the first time, i comment on the hair. here is not right, there is not right. too long. 
im really lost confidence on him. 

im always thinks why they always asking me whether i got any specific person to cut my hair or not. now im under-stand. 

next time no more "him". 


Penang Bridge Run

Penang bridge run 22km half marathon map is up.

since the Penang bridge Run marothan is back on August, im been strugglling whether want to join or not. 

Join then i should have start my training as soon as possible yet i dun have the motivation to register myself yet although there is Online Registration is available.

Something is holding me.  

previously i got joined Penang Bridge Run for 3 times continous. 

2000 : i joined the 25km run, but im oversleep. after wake up it's 8am already and im still go there not for running but to redeem alots of free gifts. 

2001: i was in TAR College Penang, this round, i got the so called "exercise' and for the 1st time running for 22km without any expectation. i failed to finish within 3 hours and failed to get certificate. 

2002: with the previous experience, i training abit more compared with previous year. this round i managed to completed within 3 hours. Horey, i got certificate and medal. 

2003 - 2006: i went to KL for my Advanced Diploma.   

2007 - 2008: started to works extremely busy with my audit life. 

2008: joined commercial, this round i have the time. i thinks im going to register myself when "something" that hold me is settle. 



All this while since introduction of the Online Purchase for the movie ticket for GSC, im already used with it. 

on 31 August also the same. i try to do last minute purchase online at home before im off to One Utama GSC for movie. 

oh, shit, it's access denail on the last step of the confirmation.

first im use my Direct Access credit card to try, but fail. 
then use UOB One Platinium card which can gives me 5% cash rebate on GSC movie ticket to try, but fail too.  
then use OCBC, but fail. 
then use Maybank, but fail. 

after so many trys, i gives up. then im still go out and head to One Utama. i was thinking if can not get ticket on-time then i go shopping. Lucky that day that time, it's less people i go to line up and within 5 minutes it's my turn. i have saved 50cents, but i feel in-secured. 

anyways that day i watched Money No Enough 2. it's quite touching movie and we all facing it everyday. 

August is gone, here come September. i checked my online statement for my credit card and found there are RM10.5 x 7 in all my credit cards which im trying to purchase that day but fail.  i called every bank and they gives me the same conclusion, go back to the Merchant, and ask them to make reversal on the transaction else making a dispute report is risky. 

Risk of my credit rating will be destroyed. if the result show i have to pay the dispute amount, i have to bear the finance charges as well. Suddenly it's gives me a serious of thoughts on online purchase. 

Among the banks, Maybank said the dispute result will be known in 45 days. 
Direct Access is the worst, it's 100-120 days. 
Other banks also in between. 

I decided to get back to GSC. but im expecting a difficult task for it. i got the general line of the GSC after searching high and low. i thinks i should have call back my ex-colleague ask them to flip client directory to get the GSC office telephone number to save my trouble. haha.  

got the number, but it's only operates from Monday - Friday 8.30am - 5.30pm. 

Yesterday, 5 September 2008 Friday

it's friday, my finance manager leave early and left me alone. when im get ready to leave, suddenly my japanese admin manager boss asked me to do some works for him. Lucky the figures is easy to find. within 5 minutes it's done and im left office. 

dammit, it's terible huge bloddy traffic jammm. in the jammm, suddenly i thought since i got nothing do to, why not i try to call the GSC customer service. it's 5.40pm, i called and some1 is answering. so i asked to transfer the line to customer services and it's got asnwered by a friendly Customer service within 15 seconds. yeah. 

i told her my situation and that time im only bring with 1 of my credit card with me. so i give her my credit card number and she said she will get back to me later today or monday. i dont thinks so she able to return my call within the same day since it's 5.40pm already. 

what's make me so excited is she gives me her direct lines. other credit card number i can call her direct line for her to investigate. Hopefully her direct line wont bluff me. 

i thinks my problems is almost solved and waiting the time to come. 


(picutre credit to Terapox @ 

previously when im first saw this pictures posted by Terapox in the CC thread, i got something in mind, but now im forget what i want to writes about it. 


The status that im chasing for it. perhaps it's can be my motivation. 

Status checked? 

thinking of want to compare my status with the above. it's seem im only scored 2/12. The "Platinium" cards im having now is just "Platinium".

last night so excited with my pictures and immediately after back home, i upload to my PC and upload to my photobucket and post few pictures in the low yat forum.

today it's Saturday. 1 day before Merdeka. Everyone is busy with their planned activities while im got no any program. so i decided to join my senior's gathering which is happened at PV10, newest condo in Setapak area.

it's my senior's new house. she brought it two years ago and this year May she moved into her new house and stay with her sister. She now already afford to buy a RM188,000 condo while im got nothing.

it's been quite long since Penang's TAR College i did not meet with my senior. the first thing my senior ask me when im reached at her house is about life in KL. their conclusion is : BORING.

so they want to find out from me, whether my life is BORING too or is it whether is only their problems or it's KL's life is BORING. haha...

Various of question is being throwed out and being answered. their conclusion, my life is BORING same as them. Another senior come, also being asked the same question and also got the same conclusion.

Anyways, we have a great homecook diner which is cooked by my senior. Got chicken, pork, soup, vegatable... after that got dessert and fruits. it's quite full.

it's a great gathering. im enjoyed it.

29 Aug 2008

on 29 Aug 2008, Friday night, as usual i went to the Malaysia International Fireworks Competition for the Grand Finale.

i left my home around 6.30pm and able to reach at Putrajaya around 7.30pm. there was no any road block all the way to PICC (Putrajaya International Convention Centre). i believe the road block will be set up after 8.00pm which will defer people from driving car up to PICC.

even im reached which im consider very early, i failed to get a nice spot, i mean a nice sport for my friend "tom yam" to place his DSLR camera. after 5-6 minutes, he reached as well. we together find nice spot.

eh, i saw Rukawa there as well. so surprise. he already place his DSLR there and there got space for us.

my friend got his space small tripod and offer to lend me to use. hmmm... initially i was reject it, as i thinks my camera A70 Canon un-able to shoot nice pictures. anyways, im just give my try to shoot it with the tips from him teach me how to fine tune the camera functions and setting.

this is the tripod that im using!!

we have about 2 hours time to spare. so i try and adjust my setting and pose for the nice sport.

when the fireworks is started, i just keep shooting. im so worried about the batter life as im used it to shoot video for other fireworks day and never chance new. im just keep pressing and praying i can shoot nice pictures. The final result, im so happy and glad with it. im so happy. my antic Digicam A70 able to shoot this kind of pictures... horey...

Merdeka week

all my badminton session is cancelled due to many is take advantage of this long holiday to go back hometown.

my Thursday and Saturday session are cancelled. at the mean time, my friend suddenly asked me want to borrow my badminton racket. so i lend to her.

but now, when want to get back from her or wait her to pass my badminton racket back to me, it's so hard. Yesterday got heavy rain, it's ok that she can not come here. today she works late. Tomorrow i thinks she also will be working late or im not at home as im heading to the Putrajaya for the fireworks.

then the only time left is Saturday 30 Aug 2008. hope i can get back my badminton racket on Saturday.


Sigh, so dissapointed.

MCMC The Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission blocking people website so efficient, while to ensure other ISP internet quality is so in-efficient.

scuk big time...

MCMC never able to open up the last mile for other ISP to tap on the broadband, making TM Nut is monopoly about 95% market of the broadband in the country.

*ai... why im just making myself life so difficulties. i thinks im better stop commenting else im will be kena with Section 263 of the Communications and Multimedia Act.

im really hopes that the HSBB (high speed broadband) can really implemented by the right person, with best technology, and definately not Telekom.

Fireworks @ 20 Aug 2008

Team Canada @ Malaysia Internation Fireworks Competition
that night was enjoyable as well. fireworks with music, and it's a great song. among the song got Titanic. i was reached at PICC around 8.35pm and i was block to drive into the building. Sigh im late for that night, so i have to park my car at the "Parking Awam" and take the shuttle bus to PICC. the Shuttle bus is keep on going. just wait about 5 minutes bus take off and it's so frequent.
Canada team is different from the China team where China play is go for the love story lines while Canada is on Songs.
im looking forward for the spain on this coming Sunday night. Too bad, i did not able to enjoy the Malaysia team's fireworks with music.
Parking Awam
on my parking at the "Parking Awam" i saw 1 terible experience. As we all line up to parks our car at the still available big space vacant land, the car in front of me, which is Mocha silver Myvi quites new with plates number WQT, he suppose to listen to the Anggota Rela instruction by parking here. But i thinks the driver saw in front far ahead there got space and it's more nearer to the Bridge, so the driver just drive ahead to there, the Rela anggota angry and quickly pick up stone from ground and throw it to the Myvi. Hits or no hits, im not sure. But im definately wont follow him. Just park my car and follows Anggota Rela's instruction.
Malaysian Driver
i was on shuttle bus, and we were ready to head for the PICC. Omg, we bus way out is being blocked by driver. they were so afraid can not get parking. The Anggota Rela stand in front of out bus and instruction the cars to drive out of our way. He have trying the very hard then only can get the cars to drive out. Sigh...
KL - Putrajaya Highway
with this new highway, i can reach Putrajaya with smooth and fast, but have to pay a total of RM4.00 for the toll starting from Jln Tun Razak entrance.
on my ways back to KL, im also have no face any difficulties on the traffic. It so smooth. i thinks the only jamm is from parking exit to main road, but im avioded it by delay about 30 minutes after the fireworks end.

this picture was taken right beside me. Yesterday night my friend and i went to Putrajaya to see the fireworks. he likes taking photo, can consider as pro already.

Malaysia International Fireworks Competition 2008

- Sample from Last Year. Borrowed from Low Yat Forum.

Yesterday is the first day of the Malaysia International Fireworks Competition 2008 (MIFC).
it's started yesterday and will be end on 29 Aug 2008.


The Ministry of Tourism will again host the Malaysia International Fireworks Competition this August in Putrajaya. Renowned world-class Fireworks Teams from around the world will compete for the 'Golden Merdeka Trophy'. The Ministry has announced that there will not be any Tickets sold this year at the Event. The event is Free for All! Speakers will be installed at the public viewing locations, enabling the spectators to enjoy the 'Musical Firework Displays'. Entrance to PICC is Free.

For two weeks in August, the skies over Putrajaya are to be lit up by a series of pyrotechnics displays. The pyrotechnic artistry will be different from regular fireworks shows as this one is meticulously choreographed to music.

For 25 minutes on each competitive night, the maestros of the night will AWE spectators with breathtaking presentations of FIRE, LIGHT with MUSIC. Prior to the final night, a judging panel of international and local celebrities will select a winner. Although a prestigious award will be presented to the victorious team, their true prize is audience delight.

The highlight of the Event is a reverberating, GRAND FINALE which will be jointly designed and produced by last year winner Howard & Sons and MIFC Producer Joe Ghazzal. The theme decided on the Finale is "Colors of Malaysia". You do not want to miss the World Class Finale Presentation on the 29th of August.

The competition, last year, drew an average of 350,000 to 400,000 live audiences to PUTRAJAYA each competition night, breaking all time record in attendance. Total numbers attended including international and domestic tourist for 2 weeks was estimated at whopping 3.5 Million people.
