[ ME ] ?

Efra, Xnox, Male.

So I'll tell you this:
- I'm no footballer guy.
- I'm against Rice Cars/People.
- I'm still jobless

I speak A-Z of the following:
- Cars, Music and PC.


Be me, be that keyboardist, be that life. Go figure, I wished I don't have to hate for certain things.

So 1M's still broken. And I checked, allowance ku masih nada. My music taste lately kinda differs. I want to play the drums again. No, slow songs won't work anymore for the mean time. I'm waking up to days I don't want to face. I'm troubled too much. Guess what? I don't even know what I'm doing anymore.

And I'm done. Sudah tah, leave me alone. Yes, that's what I want.

Just let me do what I want as long I'm still breathing.

So another day I guess for a random blogpost.

I wanted to fix up a few things at home since I always been going out from home. First off the list was try to patch up 1M, and yes she's dirtiest as ever. But I'll be continuing to keep washing and waxing again after I fixed the car up. And no, I'm still waiting for the parts I've ordered online to replace the damaged parts of 1M. (Bother to know? Waterpump, Thermostat Module and T-Belt kit). That'll fix the overheating problem of it! -_-

Then fixing the PC. I need to reformat and setup two systems. One is my brother's spare rig, and the other one is mine. It's been weeks since I decided to fix the system altogether. The motherboard was in another box, while my RAM was at my dressing table. Messy much? Haha. Finally I got them to put all of them together. No in-progress pictures this time. Was too busy to make it done asap.

And yes, I have a new graphics card for my pc (ATI HD3650 AGP). I know it's not the best, but it's something I can get before the 7th Lanparty (TFF). YAY, and that.. 24/7 online on desktop soon. :) Kesian laptop ku on saja.

(Hi to my pc)

And now, I'm off to kaybee. :)

So my birthday was just okay this year. Afterall, I was still sick because of the hospital thingy I guess. Though my food appetite's improving again (that's the good part). Not much, but that's what happened:

The only birthday cake, haha.

Sam - 1st Quarter Designer

The last photo was done by our "1st Quarter Designer" (yes he designs logo, draws character version of us, etc). His rendition of it saying that, the two cigarettes represents the drummer and the guitarist. He thought almost everyday I went meeting them, it's like I'm addicted. =.=

Haha! Anyway, nice piece of work you've done there bro. Keep it up, and thanks! *thumbs up*

And thanks everyone for the birthday greet! :)

Update: Speaking of my birthday.. I share the same birthday as Rihanna (as everyone's currently talking about si coklet ngan ya beantam). How cool is that? Hahaha!


Oh, and some pretty random covers my project band and I did.

Symphonic Unison - Your Call Cover

Symphonic Unison - Your Guardian Angel Cover

Ini saya sendiri yang cover - Walk With Me

(Yes, there's that one part. I know.)

And I'm in love with you.
Keh itu aja. :)

Hey look, the sickboy just got a new lame haircut.

Mama ku tu majal. And it's really short, and aku sasak. Enough of short hairs. Aku mau macam mop-hair sekali wah. Bersih jua kan lantai rumah ku.. apakan.

And I went to the hospital again in the afternoon, emergency for the 2nd time. Acid Reflux, or was it Gastric? Either lah.. shares the same symptoms anyway I guess? I was too sick to eat properly for the last few days, so I guess that's why.

But it's all good.. it's all good. :)

And I mean, really sick. I don't wanna to go all into the details cause I'm still exhausted to type it all, but here's what I can tell you for now:

- After the Prom Night Performance @ 3rd Floor Swiss, I ate at Wywy.
- I felt sick when I got at my second home.
- I can't sleep as comfortable as I used to. I was 1/2 awake for .. (4AM-9AM) of the time slept.
- I was fully awake later, went to the toilet and vomit the hell out.
- Felt better awhile, but my appendix acted up-ish. I tried went back to sleep.
- Woke up, vomited again. I got real sick at this point.
- That evening, Faiz sent me to hospital (thanks bro), and got admitted.
- Drip, drip.. drip.. First day impressions at the ward? I thought I was gonna die, lol.
- Still there's the bandmates visited me even after visiting hours. All hail to you guys for the support.
- 2nd day and 3rd day, just wasting my days away.. but I was getting better.
- Had been ultra-sound to see if I got a baby in my intestines. There's nothing and it was normal.
- With friends visited me, it does give me some moral support. :'-) Definitely getting better.
- 4th day, the last day (of which the day I wrote this), the infection has gone, blood samples results came good. I was able to leave the hospital in the afternoon. Mum took me, and then took my car from Faiz house, and I finally reached home late after.

So how do I feel now?

I still.. need. more. RESTS. It was hell of what I've been through. It might just a food poisoning or a appendix query, but who knows what could have happened? No I'm not saying I'm scared of death, but I've still got alot of things to do and say. So take care guys and girls, look after yourself. :)

And again, thanks thanks.. THANKS for much for people who came to visit me. You guys really made my day! :)

P/S: And and.. I've got a new replacement phone. Yipee! ;D

Warning: Ranting post. You have been warned.

I never agreed if someone said, "Life is unfair" or the vice versa meaning. To me, it's just how the things evolves around you.

Just ask the question to yourself, "Am I doing the right thing?" to every actions you've done.

I'm going downhill faster than ever this time. I felt this before, and I still don't know how to get myself back up. I ever said that school was my life (yes, despite how horrendous sometime school can get), but it's the only time for me to get away from home and spend my time outside. Friends are like my second family. Without them, I'd be dead now hanging lifeless, sitting infront of my computer all day in my room and listen to my parents nagging about me every time just about everything. Isn't it amazing? And no, this is not the first time.

Sometimes I feel like I can't make people appreciate for things I've done, but I'm not hoping for such. Am I being disrespected? Just because I'm that young around them? Sometimes I just wanna give the finger to them who just can't get what I mean. Doesn't mean that every time I shut myself up is just because I'm not willing to fight back. I have my patience, and I've been holding it back for too long now. I have my reasons too.

Maybe I don't deserve it at all, despite how much I wanted for it.. and that includes everything around me. If my life is destined to be like this, then all I can say is to at least hold on for a little while longer and accept it even though if it were to be the most retarded life moments ever in my life. I hoped for the world to be a better place to live in, but.. things around me (particularly me), I almost lost myself. Why can I just be like anybody else who lives happy?

I'm done fake-ing smiles and shit. I just don't know for long I could hold on this way. Really, it feels forever.

No, I always said that my obsessions are the black and white keys, the 1M and the PC right? Okay let's try something different this time. See the following?


(And this. :p)

Now don't bombard me with Toblerones, Crunchies and Sprites for my upcoming birthday (HAHAHAHA APAKAN), but.. okayy aku suka pulang. And I like creative people! Oh and there's my 1M car key, and my 3 years ago spectacle. Nerdyyh. :-&.

And and, speaking of 1M.. (the bad news) the wife is sick now. Damam panas ya.

Water-temp: 110 Degrees Celcius

Digital reading Water temp: 142 Degrees Celcius.

:( I can't ride around with 1M for now. She's overheating too much. Mum, can I have a new car? Preferably this: Click. Hahaha. Sexy kan? *raises eyebrow*

HAHAHA! I'm dreaming. And I'm still jobless. Waiting for a job, and 'waiting for the right time'. Soon, don't worry.. it'll be soon.

So after the RTB recording session, I felt somewhat like I've gained more freetime now. I don't think there will be another one where I go jamming 24/7 again. But I feel wasted. Waking up to an empty morning/afternoon with no job or whatsoever. Some school holiday that is, and I've got like 2 months to go for holidays. But anyhow, I feel better since I can have my rest more often now. :)

(Say hello to 'Jamah'. It's the band's pet. Taken during early morning at my jamming's place)


(The life)

(Full wah minyak ku. Inda banyak jalan lately ane?)

And the weather's playing on me (and kamu lah, mana saja). Though I can't fit my mood with the weather anymore. Aku suka senyum saja lately ane.

"Why be sad when you can be happy?"

I'm looking forward for good days now. I hope it keeps getting better and better. And aku masih nunggu my job application arah Telbru. Yes, I wanna work for now. I don't feel like slacking at home anymore. Had enough rest much? I don't know. Haha! I guess I'll just play the keyboard saja to fill up my time.

You know the words, so sing along for me baby. :)

2:57 PM

So I had to sleep at bandar for like 3 days at my band's uncle house (Rimba). The RTB Recording was for "Rentak Kita" of which will be aired sometime in February or so. It was really tiring as we had to bring our own Guitar/Bass/Keyboard and the Amplifiers along with the Drumset.

We arrived at "Amit" Aman's house (Sama macam si Faiz rupanya, haha) at around 8pm. We didn't unloaded the amps cause we were too tired. Instead, we just parked our cars behind his house (yes, for security reasons). The last incident happened at their uncle's house was his Guitar, the Gibson Les Paul Studio was stolen. Awu banar-banar, I'm not kidding. Rumah nya kana pacah, but there was no one home during that time. But still we had to becareful.

Regardless, after settling down for awhile, we were going out to Hua-ho to find some new clothes. Bought some snacks and we went back to Rimba.

We had some conversations before we went to sleep, talking about what's going to happen the next day (Recording day), and what we were going to do. Alot of things went through my mind. I had trouble going to sleep for awhile. But though, one of my thoughts got answered, and finally went to sleep better. :)

The next morning, we had to wake up early to set up our things at RTB Studio. Up at 10am, we already on our way there. Weird thing is, the manager for our band told us they will do the soundchecks and setup before the afternoon.

We went there, and it's like... "Ampai barang saja"? With no commands issued to us, we just went on doing nothing. The drums were set though, and personally I thought it looked cool if its going to be aired on TV.

(Setting up)

So after setting up and things, it was almost 1:30PM and felt "L" for Friday's Prayers. We went for lunch, and was told at 2PM, the rehearsal and recording session would start. We were going back to Rimba until the manager told us this, "Eh mana kamu? 1:45 kamu mesti ada balik. Durang menunggu sudah ne, mental sudah". And we were like, what the hell? We haven't even went home to Rimba yet to change our clothes for the recording session. Confused, some just went there to the Studio while me and Maziz still had to go to Rimba to take our clothes. Running late, we had to zoom from Yayasan (at where we had lunch) to Rimba, then back to RTB!

Then the manager saw us, went blabbering and I was like giving the "Whatever" looks, and sampat lagi tu ya kan comment pasal sound keyboard ku? What do he knows? Everyone was pissed off. Then I had to still went for a damn makeup, (palui paluh-paluh kan bemakeup!). By then, everything was set at around 3PM. And we're like "Thanks for the misinformation, kami gagas" kinda environment. We still went on for the show. Then the session started.

With the background lights ready, soundchecked and camera's rolling.. we were blasting the Studio Hall with our beat. But firstly, we were still not in the heat. But later on, I felt my voice came back. And yes, it actually does went well. Although a couple of mistakes, we were reluctant to macam cakap, "Umm boleh sekali lagi? Tadi ada salah sikit ah". The crew there looked pretty scary, but still friendly somehow. We requested to record "Selamat Tinggal Kasihku" one more time and they were okay about it. Tapi macam tanya penerbit durang lagi and things like that, malas tia kami for other songs. So the songlist were:

1) J-Rocks - Ceria
2) J-Rocks - Lepaskan Diri Ku
3) J-Rocks - Selamat Tinggal Kasihku
4) J-Rocks - Semakin Sendiri
5) Dream Theater - About To Crash.

Yang aku puas hati was Lepaskan Diriku and About To Crash. The rest were okay, but not really perfect but who cares. We're getting paid anyway, haha!

The session then ended at 6PM. Packed our things back to the car, and we were going to a nearby Food Stall to satisfy the hunger and thirst we had during the recording session. Everyone was tired, but we were still doing things and talk things like nothing happened back there at RTB. Everybody felt better, then we all went back home to Rimba to refresh ourselves. And yeah, it was like a day went well.

(Look what RTB makeovers did to him, HAHAHA)


Then si Walid had this weird idea of going to the mall to watch a movie. And we were like, "AAAAAA?". Aku mana saja, and I know like the others, kalau kana lanja okay eh. He didn't wanted, but we still went to the mall just to chill out. Jumpa durang si Is arah Hair Rock, and jalan-jalan lagi, main arcade then baru tah balik. Bosan banar? Though, at that point.. we split ways because it was Saturday tomorrow and some had to go to work/school, etc. Those who didn't went home (me, Fattah, Faiz, Maziz and Barry) went back to Rimba. We chilled out until early morning(-ish) until we were too tired and went to sleep.

Next morning, we had to wake up early somehow because Maziz's SO wanted to treat us for lunch and.. at the Mall. Haha! And aku macam, mana saja! Aku lapar ne. Hahaha. Mandi, and etc.. We met her at the Mall, then ate at.. eh apa nama kadai nya ane ah? First time aku di sana. Kesian aku, hahaha.

Ordered this, and it was really good actually. Inda ku tau lah ah kalau pasal aku lapar, but I felt macam "Oh baru tah aku pernah rasa Nasi Briyani ane nyaman". HAHAHA! After lunch, back to Rimba and supposingly going home at 4PM, we stalled at Rimba due to bad weather? And went back home at 9PM instead.

Back at Maziz's house, we unloaded the gears, chilled for awhile then I went home. I finally stepped on my door's footsteps and I thought... "Home sweet home". Took my bath, online sekejap then tidor! :)

So yeah, I guess that was a "real" trip. Things like these would come along more often soon. I know "1st Quarter" is going somewhere. I am hoping.

Oh thanks for reading this far! Aku tau panjang. :-& Hahaha.
