INTERESTING CONVERSATION

An Atheist Professor of Philosophy was speaking to his Class on the Problem Science has
with GOD, the ALMIGHTY. He asked one of his New Christian Students to stand and . . .

Professor : You are a Christian, aren't you, son ?
Student : Yes, sir.
Professor : So, you Believe in GOD ?
Student : Absolutely, sir.
Professor : Is GOD Good ?
Student : Sure.
Professor : Is GOD ALL - POWERFUL ?
Student : Yes.
Professor : My Brother died of Cancer even though he Prayed to GOD to Heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn't. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?

(Student was silent )

Professor : You can't answer, can you ? Let's start again, Young Fella. Is GOD Good?
Student : Yes.
Professor : Is Satan good ?
Student : No.
Professor : Where does Satan come from ?
Student : From . . . GOD . . .
Professor : That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this World?
Student : Yes.
Professor : Evil is everywhere, isn't it ? And GOD did make everything. Correct?
Student : Yes.
Professor : So who created evil ?

(Student did not answer)

Professor : Is there Sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the World, don't they?
Student : Yes, sir.
Professor : So, who Created them ?

(Student had no answer)

Professor : Science says you have 5 Senses you use to Identify and Observe the World around you. Tell me, son . . . Have you ever Seen GOD?
Student : No, sir.
Professor : Tell us if you have ever Heard your GOD?
Student : No , sir.
Professor : Have you ever Felt your GOD, Tasted your GOD, Smelt your GOD? Have you ever had any Sensory Perception of GOD for that matter?
Student : No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.
Professor : Yet you still Believe in HIM?
Student : Yes.
Professor : According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student : Nothing. I only have my Faith.
Professor : Yes, Faith. And that is the Problem Science has.

Student : Professor, is there such a thing as Heat?
Professor : Yes.
Student : And is there such a thing as Cold?
Professor : Yes.
Student : No, sir. There isn't.

(The Lecture Theatre became very quiet with this turn of events )

Student : Sir, you can have Lots of Heat, even More Heat, Superheat, Mega Heat, White Heat, a Little Heat or No Heat.

But we don't have anything called Cold. We can hit 458 Degrees below Zero which is No Heat, but we can't go any further after that.

There is no such thing as Cold. Cold is only a Word we use to describe the Absence of Heat. We cannot Measure Cold.

Heat is Energy. Cold is Not the Opposite of Heat, sir, just the Absence of it.

(There was Pin-Drop Silence in the Lecture Theatre )

Student : What about Darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as Darkness?
Professor : Yes. What is Night if there isn't Darkness?
Student : You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the Absence of Something. You can have Low Light, Normal Light, Bright Light, Flashing Light . . .
But if you have No Light constantly, you have nothing and its called Darkness, isn't it? In reality, Darkness isn't. If it is, were you would be able to make Darkness Darker, wouldn't you?
Professor : So what is the point you are making, Young Man ?
Student : Sir, my point is your Philosophical Premise is flawed.
Professor : Flawed ? Can you explain how?
Student : Sir, you are working on the Premise of Duality.
You argue there is Life and then there is Death, a Good GOD and a Bad GOD. You are viewing the Concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure.

Sir, Science can't even explain a Thought. It uses Electricity and Magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one.

To view Death as the Opposite of Life is to be ignorant of the fact that Death cannot exist as a Substantive Thing.
Death is Not the Opposite of Life: just the Absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your Students that they evolved from a Monkey?

Professor : If you are referring to the Natural Evolutionary Process, yes, of course, I do.
Student : Have you ever observed Evolution with your own eyes, sir?

(The Professor shook his head with a Smile, beginning to realize where the Argument was going )

Student : Since no one has ever observed the Process of Evolution at work and Cannot even prove that this Process is an On-Going Endeavor. Are you not teaching your Opinion, sir?

Are you not a Scientist but a Preacher?

(The Class was in Uproar )

Student : Is there anyone in the Class who has ever seen the Professor's Brain?

(The Class broke out into Laughter )

Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's Brain, Felt it, touched or Smelt it? . . .

No one appears to have done so. So, according to the Established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that You have No Brain, sir.
With all due respect, sir, how do we then Trust your Lectures, sir?

(The Room was Silent. The Professor stared at the Student, his face unfathomable)

Professor : I guess you'll have to take them on Faith, son.
Student : That is it sir . . . Exactly ! The Link between Man & GOD is FAITH. That is all that Keeps Things Alive and Moving.


NB:

I believe you have enjoyed the Conversation . . . and if so .. .
You'll probably want your Friends / Colleagues to enjoy the same . . . won't you?
Forward them to Increase their Knowledge . . . or FAITH.
That student was Albert Einstein..

IT IS STRANGE ISN'T IT...

Got this from an email sent by a friend of mine.. reflection time....

Isn't it strange
how a 10 ringgit bill seems like such a large amount when you donate it to church,
but such a small amount when you go shopping?


Isn't it strange
how 2 hours seem so long when you're at church,
and how short they seem when you're watching a good movie?


Isn't it strange
that you can't find a word to say when you're praying but..
you have no trouble thinking what to talk about with a friend?


Isn't it strange
how difficult and boring it is to read one chapter of the Bible but
how easy it is to read 100 pages of a popular novel or ZANE GREY book?


Isn't it strange
how everyone wants front-row-tickets to concerts or games but
they do whatever is possible to sit at the last row in Church?


Isn't it strange
how we need to know about an event for Church 2-3 weeks
before the day so we can include it in our agenda,
but we can adjust it for other events in the last minute?


Isn't it strange
how difficult it is to learn a fact about God to share it with others;
but how easy it is to learn, understand, extend and repeat gossip?


Isn't it strange
how we believe everything that magazines and newspapers say but...
we question the words in the Bible?


Isn't it strange
how everyone wants a place in heaven but....
they don't want to believe, do, or say anything to get there?

Isn't it strange
how we send jokes in e-mails and they are forwarded right away but
when we are going to send messages about God,
we think about it twice before we share it with others?

Life is confusing...

Nothing to write actually but i would like to share some thoughts about our life on earth..

LIFE.. Isn't it confusing..?? There is a phrase saying "Life comes with a guaranteed-death... " It's a package for every living thing in the world... Your first breath means you are waiting for your last breath, which remains mystery to all... if that so, why must we come to life in the first place knowing the certainty of death???

The only scary thing about it is the situation on our last breath... Don't you??

How and when i will die?? That's so scary to be thought of...

During our 'temporary-life' on earth, we ought to do everything that will satisfy us.. such as, education, wealth, friends, spouse, children, and many more... FOR WHAT??? YOU WILL DIE EVENTUALLY and you are aware that you can't bring those things with you when you die... Having all those things especially family will add even more sufferings to you for leaving your loved ones behind... *sob sob...

I wonder... how's life after death??? What will i feel??? How is the situation 'there'??? Will i still able to meet and see my family from 'there'??? Am i become ghost waiting for my final judgement??? Where will 'they' put me??? Do i still have feeling or emotion after death???? How about my unfinished business on earth??? How about my family/loved ones after i have gone???

Scary thought huh....

That's for us to ponder...

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.....

Here are some words of wisdom about LIFE...

A. Powell Davies:

Life is just a chance to grow a soul.


Abraham Lincoln:

And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.


Alan Bennett:

Life is rather like a tin of sardines - we're all of us looking for the key.


Albert Camus:

All men have a sweetness in their life. That is what helps them go on. It is towards that they turn when they feel too worn out.


Alice Walker:

Deliver me from writers who say the way they live doesn't matter. I'm not sure a bad person can write a good book. If art doesn't make us better, then what on earth is it for.


Alice Walker:

Expect nothing, live frugally on surprise.


Amelia Burr:

Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.


Anais Nin:

Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.


Anais Nin:

People living deeply have no fear of death.


Anais Nin:

The personal life deeply lived always expands into truths beyond itself.


André Gide:

The most decisive actions of our life ... are most often unconsidered actions.


Anne Wilson Schaef:

Life is a process. We are a process. The universe is a process.


Baruch Spinoza:

What everyone wants from life is continuous and genuine happiness.


Ben Jonson:

A good life is a main argument.


Benjamin Disraeli:

Read no history: nothing but biography, for that is life without theory.


Benjamin Franklin:

Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that the stuff life is made of.


Bernice Johnson Reagon:

Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they're supposed to help you discover who you are.


Brother David Steindl-Rast :

Gratefulness is the key to a happy life that we hold in our hands, because if we are not grateful, then no matter how much we have we will not be happy -- because we will always want to have something else or something more.


Carl Sandburg:

Our lives are like a candle in the wind.


Carl Sandburg:

Life is like an onion: You peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep.


Charlotte Bronte:

Life is so constructed that an event does not, cannot, will not, match the expectation.


Colette:

Life is nothing but a series of crosses for us mothers.


Corita Kent:

Love the moment. Flowers grow out of dark moments. Therefore, each moment is vital. It affects the whole. Life is a succession of such moments and to live each, is to succeed.


Elbert Hubbard:

Life is just one damned thing after another.


Elbert Hubbard:

Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.


Ernest Becker:

[W]e now know that the human animal is characterized by two great fears that other animals are protected from: the fear of life and the fear of death... Heidegger brought these fears to the center of his existential philosophy. He argued that the basic anxiety of [humanity] is anxiety about being-in-the-world, as well as anxiety of being-in-the-world. That is, both fear of death and fear of life, of experience and individuation.


Ernest Becker:

I think that taking life seriously means something such as this: that whatever man does on this planet has to be done in the lived truth of the terror of creation, of the grotesque, of the rumble of panic underneath everything. Otherwise it is false. Whatever is achieved must be achieved with the full exercise of passion, of vision, of pain, of fear, and of sorrow. How do we know ... that our part of the meaning of the universe might not be a rhythm in sorrow?


F. Forrester Church:

Religion is the human response to being alive and having to die.


George Bernard Shaw:

I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the community, and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.


George Eliot:

What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult for each other?


George Sand:

Life resembles a novel more often than novels resemble life.


George Santayana:

Life is not a spectacle or a feast; it is a predicament.


Goethe:

A useless life is an early death.


HH the Dalai Lama:

What is the meaning of life? To be happy and useful.


Harry Emerson Fosdick:

Nothing else matters much -- not wealth, nor learning, nor even health -- without this gift: the spiritual capacity to keep zest in living. This is the creed of creeds, the final deposit and distillation of all important faiths: that you should be able to believe in life.


Henry David Thoreau:

However mean your life is, meet it and live it: do not shun it and call it hard names. Cultivate poverty like a garden herb, like sage. Do not trouble yourself much to get new things, whether clothes or friends. Things do not change, we change. Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts.


Henry James:

Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.


Henry Van Dyke:

Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love, to work, to play, and to look up at the stars.


Isaac Asimov:

If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn't brood. I'd type a little faster.


James F. Bymes:

Too many people are thinking of security instead of opportunity. They seem to be more afraid of life than death


Jean-Paul Sartre:

Everything has been figured out, except how to live.


Joan Baez:

You don't get to choose how you're going to die. Or when. You can only decide how you're going to live. Now.


John Dewey:

Education, therefore, is a process of living and not a preparation for future living.


John Dewey:

Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.


Joni Mitchell:

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all.


Marcus Aurelius:

Remember that no man loses any other life than this which he now lives, nor lives any other than this which he now loses.


Marcus Aurelius:

Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. I am not afraid.


Maria Mitchell:

Study as if you were going to live forever; live as if you were going to die tomorrow.


Marian Wright Edelman:

Service is what life is all about.


Marie Curie:

Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood.


Mark Twain:

What work I have done I have done because it has been play. If it had been work I shouldn't have done it. Who was it who said, "Blessed is the man who has found his work"? Whoever it was he had the right idea in his mind. Mark you, he says his work--not somebody else's work. The work that is really a man's own work is play and not work at all. Cursed is the man who has found some other man's work and cannot lose it. When we talk about the great workers of the world we really mean the great players of the world. The fellows who groan and sweat under the weary load of toil that they bear never can hope to do anything great. How can they when their souls are in a ferment of revolt against the employment of their hands and brains? The product of slavery, intellectual or physical, can never be great.

Juara SEBENAR Akademi Fantasia 7...

Juara sebenar AF7 sesuai dengan temanya tahun ini.. Transformasi bersama AF7... ialah

JUARA : AKIM
Pic courtesy of Subhikarim

(With due respect..) Naib Juara: Hafiz

Ketiga: Isma

Keempat: Yazid

Aril... tak patut ada tempat.. reason?? semua orang tahu permainan production AF7.. Read below article why Akim should have win AF7..

Memang title Juara hanya antara Hafiz dan Akim, Tidak dinafikan Hafiz memang sangat baik dan sesuai bebenar jadi Juara. tapi my votes go to Akim due to his 'tranformation' processes from week 1...

And please enjoy the performances of the real champion during the grand finale..

Bengang (single) ~ Akim AF7

aku bosan dengan cintamu
aku rasa buang masa
kau selalu mendustakan cintaku

aku fikir kau tak searus
lebih baik ku beralih
biarkan diriku terus bersendiri

ku tak sanggup engkau setia
walau jasad dan juga nyawa
sebagai tanda cintamu padaku

katamu..

tak mungkin ku percaya
kata-kata yang penuh dusta
hanyalah bibir berkata
yang memilukan
menambah bengang rasa hampa
terus tinggal diriku terasa

cukup berkali kau berkata
jangan diulang lagi dusta
jangan kau pujuk hati yang terluka

tak mungkin akan ku kembali
jika janji sekadar mimpi
tak mungkin aku sanggup
bersama dengan mu

tak mungkin ku percaya
kata-kata yang penuh dusta
hanyalah bibir berkata
yang memilukan
menambah bengang rasa hampa
terus tinggal diriku

setiap liku diserang pilu
setiap liku teringat janjimu
ooh caramu..
akan ku teruskan diriku oh tanpamu

tak mungkin ku percaya
kata-kata yang penuh dusta
hanyalah bibir berkata
yang memilukan
menambah bengang rasa hampa
terus tinggal diriku terasa
ooh..

AKIM - My Favorite to Win AF7

You may call him cocky.. some may just call him ego.. some say he is rejected from OIAM.. whatever you may want to labeled him, for me he is the most 'transformed' student of akademi fantasia 7, in line with the theme of this year production.. He is indeed was transformed from zero to hero... Just look at the picture below..it is self-explanatory pic..

Pics Courtesy of Murai.com.my

Apart from that.. He is unique in such a way that his voice is not yet in the market (of Malaysia of course).. He is really transformed from 'kampung' to celebrity@potential superstar... look how kampung he is in the pic above.. no offence akim and his fans..

He is one of the most consistent student this season (selain daripada Hafiz).. His talent is very fresh and there's something about him that make me want to see his performance every week.. And one thing about him that make him very different with the other students is he can sing and smile in the same time.. his interpretation of each song he performed was unique and great..

He has so many memorable performance.. For me, the most memorable is when he performed Datuk Siti's song.. It was just awesome..

youtube video by Emerald01

And not forgetting his fantastic performance when he sang 'Situasi' (O.A Bunkface)..

youtube video by Momoilia

Malaysia, do not vote for 'recycled' student.. do not repeat our mistake in OIAM3.. He (AFMASUK student) may be talented, but yg out tue out la ye...

Hafiz can also be the winner but doesn't have the x-factor and aura.. AND his voice is very common..

So.. vote for akim by afundi him..

AFUNDI AKIM and send to 32999

or

AFUNDI3 AKIM and send to 32999

or

AFUNDI5 AKIM and send to 32999

or

AFUNDI10 AKIM and send to 32999

OIAM3 Winner SUCKS!!! Say NO to RECYCLED Winner

Ya... indeed i'm not in a mood of reviewing the show..

I just think that Tomok do not deserve the title for a lot of reason..

*He supposed to be voted out earlier but the show has it own motive to maximizing their profit cuz they know who his voters are.. they all got money.. I bet that 90% his votes come from one cluster of location ONLY..his family members.. I bet they will do the same for Isma later on to win AF7.. AND don't forget they have extra 1 million to ensure that to happen..

*The judges are truly, deeply, madly BIASED!!!! Malaysia know this prior to the grand finale for they admitted it when they were interviewed recently.. They openly want Tomok to win.. WHY?? (**sendri mo tau).. I don't see any powerful vocal from Tomok compare to Aweera and Esther whose vocal are more unique and marketable.. Labelling Tomok's second performance as the best of the nite was completely ridiculous..

*I said earlier 90% of Tomok's votes came from his cluster.. and another 10% definitely came from girls who voted because of his good looking (** is it??? duh...).. Buta seni betul...

*Revealing the leader board so many time during the show was unnecessary.. u know why, rite??? It was pathetic... I mean the producer.. So how much OIAM profit this season?? Satisfied?? Me myself LOSE RM30 for tonite only..

*AND the best reason would be.. He is already an artist.. *duh...

*UNFAIR for those who have been voted out to actually be given the chance to compete again.. it was like an AFMASUK in AF which triggered a lot of controversies and unsatisfactory of viewers.. Say NO to RECYCLED Winner!!!..

Wakakakaka... i know i am a lil bit emotion tonite..opsss..not a lil bit maybe...

Anyhow, here what i feel abt the grand finale;

*Opening VT and drama = Excellent

*The Host = Excellent

*Wardrobe of Awal n Marion = Excellent

*Wardrobe of all the TOP 12 = Excellent

* Aweera = GOOD

*Esther = Brilliant and Fantastic

*Tomok = RECYLED.. VOTED OUT (didn't deserved to be rated)

*Bunkface = GOOD

*Ayu = Great

*The Judges = SUCKS!!! BIASED!!!

*The result = SUCKS!!! T.T

*The winner = do not deserve it..so SUCKS!!

*Overall production = Better than AF of course.. BEST but the result is sucks.. **sigh

THE REAL WINNER of OIAM Season 3 is...

ESTHER

NINE out (**fuhhhh.....); One In A Million (OIAM3) TOP 3 Live Show

With due respect... at last Nine was voted out last nite, and this time Malaysia definitely got it 100% right, it should had happened lllllooooonnnnnnnggggg ago (when Rizu was eliminated in Top 6 show).. As I said before, I really wanna see new and fresh talent to be in the Grand Finale... Having said that, I don't like the idea of having either top 2 or top 3 in the grand finale.. Making it even worse by letting the audience to vote and choose their preference on the grand finale.. It is just pathetic..!!! Can't their decide on their own..?? It should be ONLY 2 contestant in the grand finale, why must 3??? I guess the motive behind this move is to maintain the top 3 regular fans' votes.. loosing one of them meaning loosing a large amount of profit... Come on Mr.Producer.. OIAM3 is at its best as per se, and no drama/hidden motive required...

Back to the show.. Marion look so hot and awesome last nite... her wardrobe was so gorgeous.. Awal?? Better than last week...

TOP 3

TOMOK
(1st Round)
Crazy in love - Beyonce
Pitching and vocal issues were very obvious last nite.. When i really listened to his voice, i found that he really pushing his vocal so hard to the extent of that it become awful.. Performance wise.. it was ok but kinda boring because he's been performing such performance for the past 4/5 weeks.. No new elements from him.. We have seen the same and monotonous Tomok for few weeks now... *duh...

(2nd Round)
Coba - Faizal Tahir
omg..omg..omg.. NERDY Tomok.. what the heck with that spectacles...it was really zillion times awful.. But his 2nd performance was great.. emotionally great.. connected well with the song.. the audience can feel it too.. I can feel it too.. It was superb performance from him.. memorable performance.. but pls do no cry.. it was not necessary..

Recommendation for Grand Finale:
*Pick moderate tempo songs that do not have high pitch, because Tomok sounded awful when pushing his voice so hard.
*do not cry.. it is unprofessional..

ESTHER
(1st Round)
Better In Time - Leona Lewis
This is her most memorable performance in the competition.. and last nite, once again she nailed the song.. emotionally great.. her strength is of course her emotion.. she really have the aura of being connected to her audience with her song... great performance from Esther.. luv it..

(2nd Round)
I Won't Go Home Without You - Maroon 5
omg..omg..omg.. SAME outfit when she first performed the song in Top 8 show.. Anyhow, last nite she tried something new in her performance when she invited Rizu to dance with her on the stage.. it was a great move but pity because she did not make use of Rizu to add more drama and entertainment value, rather than just a dance... but overall, it was entertaining.. vocal wise..OK..

Recommendation for Grand Finale:
*Pick songs from Mariah Carey and/or Cristina Aguilera to show her true vocal..
*do not do unnecessary gimmicks pls...

AWEERA
(1st Round)
Gemilang - Jaclyn Victor
Speechless... not because it was good but because of too many pitching problem.. on the verge of 'sumbang'.. No more 'gemilang'.. but he improved a lot especially on his stage presentation.. he was more confident and looked comfortable on stage..

(2nd Round)
Aku Dah Bosan - Search
copycat 100% copycat of Amy Search and i hated it.. But his 1st note was brilliant.. it was really unique.. but as the song progresses, it became boring towards the end.. But again he nailed his last note with great high pitch.. vocally=copycat.. Performance=OK..

Recommendation for Grand Finale:
*Learn from Adam Lambert.. learn how he picked a song and changed it to suited his voice and vocal range.. Go and watch all his performances..
*more variations/elements needed in the performance..

FOR GRAND FINALE.. ESTHER AND AWEERA....ONLY...

Don't forget to cast your vote on Esther..

OIAM3: Amylea Terkilan


Story and Pics courtesy of gua.com.my

“Ada terasa nak pengsan di atas pentas tadi tapi malulah,” kata Amylea. “Setiap minggu, memang saya ada rasa yang saya akan terkeluar. Tapi perasaan itu tak sehebat malam ini.”

Ceritanya, perkara yang menyebabkan dia “sangat-sangat terkilan” adalah tidak berpeluang membuat persembahan yang telah disediakan untuk tema minggu ini, ‘In Concert’. Bukannya kerana dia kalah “kerana sesiapa pun boleh kalah dan itu satu realiti pertandingan yang tidak boleh diubah”.

Seluruh ahli keluarga (biasanya, hanya ayahnya yang akan hadir) dan saudara-mara, sahabat-handai hadir malam ini untuk melihatnya membuat persembahan. “Sebaliknya, mereka datang untuk melihat saya tersingkir.” Tambahnya, jika dikekalkan malam ini, persembahan yang bakal disajikan adalah yang terbaik darinya.

“I put a lot of effort into it dan semuanya dirancangkan sendiri seperti arrangement … Kebiasaannya kami cuma diberi dua minit untuk membuat persembahan tetapi kali ini kami mempunyai empat minit dan saya ingin menunjukkan kepada Malaysia cara saya membuat persembahan.

“Saya betul-betul nak perform. Semua kelemahan saya sebelum ini saya kumpulkan dan saya go through every detail dan hasilnya adalah persembahan ini. Malah saya sendiri pun rasa ini bakal menjadi persembahan terbaik saya. (Paul Moss yang sempat melihat sesi latihan Amylea juga merasakan ia amat bagus.)

"Jika penyingkiran dilakukan di akhir rancangan selepas saya membuat persembahan, tidak akan saya merasa begini. Tuhan saja yang tahu apa yang saya rasa. Rasanya macam ditipu promoter. Kata nak buat konsert tapi ... Nasib baik saya ada rekod. Sekurang-kurangnya dapat saya letak di YouTube.”

Dedah Amylea lagi, duit kemenangan RM1juta itu sepatutnya digunakan untuk membiayai pembelajarannya di sekolah muzik terkenal, Berklee College of Music di Amerika.

“Apa yang saya pelajari akan dimanfaatkan kepada artis-artis lain. Hasrat saya untuk kongsikan duit itu dengan penyanyi-penyanyi muda dan mereka yang berbakat dalam bidang muzik. Penyertaan saya di dalam OIAM bukan untuk menjadi terkenal. Kalau itu tujuan saya, baik saya cipta saja kontroversi. Saya kecewa kerana gagal merealisasikan impian saya itu. Tapi, sekurang-kurangnya, lagu saya “Aku Dan Mimpi” dimainkan di dalam drama ‘Merah Putih’.

“Itu adalah karya terakhir saya sebelum memasuki OIAM. Sepanjang lima bulan saya disini, saya tidak dapat berjumpa keluarga, tak buat show … Saya banyak berkorban tapi saya bukan lah pulang dengan tangan kosong. Pengalaman yang saya perolehi di OIAM susah untuk digambarkan dengan kata-kata.

“Masa saya keluar Akademi Fantasia dulu, saya masih terasa kosong. Tapi Tuhan menunjukkan kali ini bila saya terkeluar baru saya faham sejauh mana passion saya di dalam bidang muzik. Tak pernah saya terasa begini, berkobar-kobar semangat saya nak naik pentas dan membuat persembahan, bagaimana pentas itu kepunyaan saya. Barulah saya sedar pentas itu adalah hidup saya.”
(..this shows that OIAM better than AF...wakakaka)

Memilih Tomok sebagai calonnya untuk menjuarai musim ketiga OIAM, Amylea berharap penyingkirannya bukan disebabkan statusnya sebagai artis. Kerana menurutnya, jika dibandingkan, Esther lebih berpengalaman darinya dalam bidang ini kerana sudah mula menyanyi sejak dia berumur dalam lingkungan 16 tahun padahal Amylea mula menyanyi pada usia 19 tahun.

“Saya tahu ramai yang menyangka saya tahu banyak perkara tentang muzik tetapi saya tidak tahu-menahu apa-apa pun. Kebolehan saya bermain gitar hanya kerana saya belajar chords-nya.”

Ditanya jika ada apa-apa yang akan dibuat berlainan jika diberi peluang mengulangi pertandingan ini semula, katanya, “Kesemuanya sebab saya tidak berpuas hati dengan apa yang telah saya lakukan.”

Tentang perancangannya selepas ini, Amylea memberitahu dia ingin berehat seketika sebelum membuat sebarang rancangan, lebih-lebih lagi bila syarikat pengurusannya, Maestro, sudah tiada lagi.

Amylea OUT.. One In A Million (OIAM 3) Top 4 Show

Picture courtesy of amyleagallery.blogspot.com

Hi loyal reader..

Firstly, again i like the introduction VT which make the show more exciting.. Full of suspense and drama.. secondly, I hate Awal's wardrobe... what the heck... so not fit with the theme, which was 'In-concert'.. His shirt was very brutal-ish, yet wore a shawl?????... But it is not our main concern..

Elimination round.. Bottom 2: Nine and Amylea.. OUT: AMYLEA... Shocked??? Nope... I was expecting Nine to be voted out, but as I have said last week, let's say NO to the existing artists.. Who go first?? Who cares??

Opening performance by Dafi and Shila was entertaining.. kinda AF vs OIAM.. Definitely Shila outperformed Dafi, vocally and stage present.. Anyhow, Dafi showed tremendous improvement on his voice ever since 'graduated' from AF... As the top 4 contestant joining them in, the performance became even greater and entertaining.. thumbs up guys..

TOP 4 Show..

Last nite, each contestant was given 4 minutes to performs 'in-concert' style, which mean, they are to figure out their own concert performance, be it in term of showmanship, songs selection, music arrangement, or even the props that they going to used.. Their performance is to attract and make the audiences feel like the real concert.. Let's see...

NINE
(Keroncong untuk Ana-M.Nasir)
He sang M.Nasir song with 3 different genre.. The opening gimmick was superb and nice; very sarawak-ish.. BUT he awfully hit his 1st note.. sumbang.. But he was able to picked up very fast.. Suddenly out of no-where, a group of 4 choir appeared with WHAT??? a plastic cup in their hand.. what was that for?? I don't get it.. candles?? I did not see any candle lit??.. The transition of genre in the middle of his performance was not smooth.. He even sang off tempo in the beginning.. Overall, he was good.. his performance was just okay.. but vocally not great yet.. too many annoying vibrator.. And i agree with Syafinaz, we feel bored at the middle of his performance..

TOMOK
(songs from Alleycats)
Emotionally.. He was great... He really feels and have connection with all the songs he sang.. Stage presentation was excellent.. it really shows how experienced-singer he is.. I really like his performance, the transition of song and music arrangement were superb.. But vocally, it was not great enough for the show.. And what Syafinaz said is true.. It was an expected performance, and i think it was corny as well.. He should give more on the unexpected elements in his future performance..

Esther
(One Night Only - Jennifer Hudson)
(malay song..hahaa can't get the title of the song - diva)
(Keeps getting better - Cristina Aguilera)
Props used (couch and picture of Paul Moss) were an excellent idea.. But I personally think that the 1st song is a wrong choice of song.. It was not great and didn't give a great impact to the audience.. But 2nd song with the used of Paul's pic was a very superb performance.. great drama and really entertaining, especially after what Paul said on her performance last week.. 3rd song shows how energetic she was and the connection she had with the song was undisputed.. It flows thru to the audience as well.. I can feel her.. Wah...

Aweera
(Tak Ada Logika -Agnes Monica, and Emanipasi)
"Cinta ini..." that's how he started his performance and it was really off pitch.. But how he walked to the stage (from the audience) was really nice.. The lighting and the echo was really great.. he was lucky to be given all these extra 'help' because it really made his performance like a real concert.. BUT his performance on the 1st two songs was not great.. too many pitching issues.. He did not feel the songs.. He looked awkward and stiff.. with no facial expression that fit the songs.. It was really an amateur performance.. But his high note and the 'screaming' parts were excellent.. that was his strength.. He was good but lack of something that awe the audience, and i guess it was the 'X-Factor'..

Malaysia, come on and vote for Esther and Aweera to be in the Grand Finale this season.. As the show wanted to search for a real talent to promote them to become a successful artist, let us make 'Esther vs Aweera' final become a reality.. We want to see fresh and new talent rather that making existing artist to be an artist.. weird huh??

Don't forget to cast your vote on Esther..
