a happy belated birthday!!!

To Farah and Azie, HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY TO YOU, GIRLS!! I know, it's a bit late, but hey! At least you were celebrated by all =) *feeling jeles a bit*
Anyway, they were celebrated just now, after our practice on Bengawan Solo, Jalur Gemilang plus Pandang2 Jeling2.
Especially for the song Pandang2 Jeling2, actually I was surprised!! We did it well.
Well here doesn't mean perfect, but it's a hard song, and I think we played good because we had enough people to play the angklungs tonight. So keep up your good work!! And to all Angklungians, keep on coming to practice, keep on playing, and keep on smiling. I understand our songs are a bit tough, especially for the juniors and me, but "HARDWORK CAN PASS GENIUSES!!"- quote from Rock Lee in Naruto ^_^ (want to know who's Rock Lee and why he said that, watch Narutola, ayoyo!)

And this is an announcement.
If you want to download the two songs (Edelwiess and Bengawan Solo), don't go to ITD Lab, Library Lab or your department Computer Lab. This is because some of the PCs there won't allow any downloads and if they do allow, it's going to take more than an hour!! So go to CC. It'll cost you a bit, but it already cost me as twice as yours, haha!!
It'll only take at least 20-30 minutes maximum. And if that's your final resort, and it still troubles you, then I'll send the file to you all. I already checked and tried it myself, and I got no problem.

I'm already feeling sleepy, so bye!! Good night! Oyasumi nasai!! Wa'an.
Ilal liqa' ma'assalamah.
Assalamu'alaikum.

BENGAWAN SOLO

OK, now I'm feeling soooooooooo excited!!!!
I found this perfect choir voices of Bengawan Solo. At first I thought, 'nah, this wouldn't fit' because it was sang in group (I think it's a Singaporean choir group) but you know what, I WAS SOOOOO WRONG!!
Now I'm listening to it, it gives me a real goosebumps, meaning that this one is veryX10 great!!!
Now I'm telling ya, find a big headspeaker and listen!! It is sooo cool (oh my God, I never thought I would love this song this way)
Yup, Abang Najib was right. It's a good song.

Just click here!!!
to save: right click, and 'Save Target As' You can also do that to Edelwiess.

information:
Bengawan Solo is the name of the longest river at Java. Written in 1940 by Gesang Martohartono, it is a keroncong style song with Portuguese influence. This song is actually very popular in ASIA (can you believe that, how couldn't I know??!!).

lyric:

bengawan solo, riwayatmu ini
sedari dulu jadi perhatian insani
musim kemarau, tak seberapa airmu
di musim hujan air meluap* sampai jauh ...
--
mata airmu dari solo
terkurung gunung seribu
air mengalir sampai jauh
akhirnya ke laut ...
--
itu perahu, riwayatmu dulu
kaum pedagang s'lalu naik itu perahu

*in the choir you hear them say' mengalir' instead of 'meluap'. I think they also change some other word, which is (for me) isn't good 0_o
However, it's still beautiful =)

Enjoy!!


p/s:
Ok people, since I'm using this Library PC now I couldn't save the target (the mp3 file) because it doesn't allow me to do that. However, if all of you have problems to download just tell me, but I think you guys can always listen to it by just one click (and I don't understand the broken link thingy T_T).
And if you really want the song, email me at myunicorn_02@yahoo.com or kairan_85@yahoo.com and I'll send the file to you. So don't worry, be happy.

Thank you for your concern =)

Picture Perfect!!

Perfecto!! as what I expected, Wawachan already posted yesterday's event here.. It was fun and I just love yesterday's family day. Eventhough less than twenty angklungians attended it, but I saluted those who came and went back all wet after the Eplorace. Well, I was one of the committee (Prep and Tech) and I guess I'm still tired of going out the day before that I did not join any games but to be the committe who handle the games. The photos during Family day will be posted here soon..

Anyway, for this time, let's take a look at our potos during the Humanitarian Week performances taken by our friend, Myra. Thanks to her! Go check it our here..!! oppss..the image is kinda big, so be patient while it uploads.. hehe.. TTYL!

IIUM CULTURAL UNIT FAMILY DAY

So today we had some fun with other cultural clubs' members (Gamelan, Chak Lempong, Dikir Barat), since this Family Day today was organized by IIUM Cultural Unit (if I'm not mistaken) and our attendance was compulsory (even later I noticed not many of us came).

Anyway, the day began at 9.30 a.m at Ragbi Field, Men's Sport Complex with the recitation of Al-Fatihah and a short speech from a guy I don't really know his name (I'm suck in remembering names, sorry). The first game we played is FUTSAL 'ala-ala pelikat dan batik'. But before that we were appointed to groups 1 to 5. Of course, each group will be 'campur-campur' team, meaning Gamelan+Chak Lempong+Angklung+Dikir Barat members in one. I was appointed to group 2, but my FUTSAL team did not win the match. Too bad...

After semi-final Futsal match, we continued with Sukaneka!!! For some times we had to be kids again playing around the field. 4 games for this one; the first one is I think 'Bola Pening' 0_o, I really forgot its name. Anyway, for this game my team won =) Then, 'Isi Air Dalam Botol' by just using our palms in three minutes to fill the mineral water bottle. This game was won by team 1 (mine got second place). Next is 'Kupas Kuaci ala Halaqah' which the whole team had to work as a team, of course- to work out the way to 'kupas' the kuaci by hands ONLY. I forgot which team won, because I was already feel tired. The last game is 'Belon King and Belon Queen'; this individual game needs you to protect your own balloon that you tied at your---'betis'--- from others that might blow your balloon. The last one who survived win the competition, and fortunately the King of Balloon for today is from Angklung Club, although he had a good fight with Abang Najib who was unfortunately lost. And the queen is from Gamelan Club.
At noon, even though the weather did not seem so bright and nice, the Family Day went on with FUTSAL FINAL. The team that won the 'cup' is Group 3!!! Congrats!! Seemed like the batik that they wore brought some luck to them. Haha...

Then, just before the rain came down pouring, the fun kept on going with Explorace. I had no idea what they played along the 5 checkpoints because I did not join my team. Lack of energy.
And yes, they had to play in rain, all wet.

For some reasons I forgot a lot of things along today's Family Day. I am so sorry, but believe me, today was fun!! Probably I was lacked of sleep last Saturday night and today morning I was soo sleepy. So I need your help to edit or make your own version of report here. Or Fairuz could edit this one for me, hehe...
And the fun ended after we retrieved our prizes. I got the first lucky draw ever in my life. Today my lucky number was 054, haha...

Nevertheless, no fighting-fighting for today, right?? Probably that's a good sign, who knows??
