Hello awesomepeople!

Any plans this weekend? If you’re in need of some good vibes, independent music, awesome people and some retail therapy, head over to FEYST: Indie Youth Fest happening this weekend at Publika! I’ll be there too, since its been ages since I went for any sort of music festival  =(

The largest independent youth festival returns!

FEYST  is an innovation & creative platform celebrating digital lifestyle + independent music which connects Malaysian video gamers & musicians to international festivals around the world, and FEYST13 @ Publika is packed with grassroots talents from 8-10 November 2013!

The theme for 2013? ‘Meet the makers’ 

Some of the disciplines that’s going to be in the spotlight include international video game qualifiers, battle of the bands qualifiers, music forum, music clinics, music concerts, music gigs, film screenings, social enterprise and etc!

The FEYST13 Live Recorded Show takes place at  No Black Tie on the 11th of November 2013 and is not to be missed as it features six musicians for an upcoming live music CD compilation.

DEFINE – Urban recipe to F.A.M.E (PART 2, MUSIC)

Hello awesomepeople!

I hope you remember my previous post about Define’s Art Party! This is Part 2 of their 4 series of events, the first one being Art, this second one Music, and the third and fourth being Fashion and Etc, hence F.A.M.E! =D 

The first Art event was amazing, and obviously I knew the second one was going to be even better! Music is pretty much universal, and I think anyone would appreciate some good music, any day! I didnt really know what to expect from this event, since Define only provided me with little sneak peeks pre-event, but I did know that there were going to be amazing bands playing on the day. And of course, a chance to hang out with my girls and enjoy some cocktails! 

The event was organized at the Heritage Row, at Jalan Yap Ah Shak, and the venue for the event blew my mind!
Since Define is all about expressing yourself, we all could come dressed however we want, and trust me, people were DRESSED UP!!! I felt so underdressed! 

Pictures , shall we? PS: Some of my pictures turned out too dark, so some pics are from the official Define Photographer. Click here to see the full album.

OOTD for the day, dress: H&M, Shoes: H&M, Lace leggings: Topshop

As usual, we had Corktales,whereby the lucky people who submitted the best cocktail recipe would be the featured cocktails for the event!

I took the Pomegranate Margarita, yes I know, its a typical girls drink, but I dont know what they put in it, it was super strong, and after one drink I could feel my head buzzing! #lighweight

And obviously, we had time for pictures before the event actually started!

Some of the interesting things happening during the event? Define was giving out 200 FREE tickets for Urbanscapes!!! Lucky people! I didnt get any 😦

We had Patricia Knudsen emceeing the event, just like the previous event, and she was also DJ’ing for the night.
The line up of that night? ED Sickness from “Lah Lah Land”, BitterSweet, Darren Ashley & Band, Mr. Dan, John Hafiz & The Other Guy, Glove (International Act) & Deer Society !

Bittersweet was one of my favourites since I was in my teens, so I was all fan girl on them when they came up the stage! WOOOO!!!!!

More pictures? I know you want more!

The Killers Concert 2013!

AAAAHHHHHH!!!! 

I just saw The Killers less than 24 hours ago and I’m still excited and hyper from their concert!!! They are one of my favourite bands, and it was such an opportunity to go to their concert!! My friend Dee got complementary tickets from Astro worth RM238, and I was lucky enough to go with her!

me!

me! OOTD :top and boots H&M. Denim shorts SEED

They started  out with Mr.Brightside, and this is probably the one song that I know ALL the lyrics to, and the crowd just went wild!!
One weird thing they did was saying Apa Khabar Malaysia, Saya Mat Rempit. da eff. i’ll find the person who taught them that. And kill them.

OMGG

OMGG!!

I couldn’t really take much pictures since I was kinda busy enjoying the music! But this was their set list, and I had fun. Nuff said! My ULTIMATE favourites on the list is probably No 3.4,13,17 and 18!

shashay

I wish the concert never ended! They’re super talented and the lead vocalist, *drool*. THANK YOU DEE.#LOVEYOUFOREVER

me and dee!!!
