Day: Monday-Tuesday / Wednesday-Thursday
Venue: Angklung training room

It was quite chaotic, especially the busking sessions. The project manager extend much apologies. However, all things considered, it went quite well, despite a somewhat handicap in the managing system *apology*
About 50 new members were recruited, 97% being the first year students. Most new members are female, but there were quite a number of male members. It was very much anticipated that the new recruitment will prove to be dedicated.

IIUM Angklung Club AGM Report

Date: 3rd October
Venue: Edu Square
By: Q
The AGM was conducted smoothly despite a late start. It was initiated with do'a recitation, followed by reports by the club's treasurer and secretary. The club proved to have unanimous trust for Rasyid to be the club's president as he was once again elected and won the seat. (Oh, that started to sound political which is queer). The mainboard does not change much with only few ammendments which are hoped to be much more effective. Muhd Zulhilmi shone as the most popular member as he won most of the 'awards'. There was dinner cum birthday bash for members whose birthdays were on November till March.
The floor dispersed at about 11 pm after a quick post mortem.

Istana Budaya…..prestigious place to uphold the culture and art to the world class. A lot of high class performances, local and international have been held there and got attention from all over walk of life citizens. Puteri Gunung ledang, Impak Maksima The Musical, and lot more prove the great achievement of Istana Budaya. To give the awareness, experience and indirectly to give moral motivation and challenges to the Angklungianz, Angklung Club on 31th July 2009 has organized educational trip to the Istana Budaya.
Smiley Face


We got support from 36 participants from Angklung Club and other culture clubs for this programme. We departed from IIUM around 2.45pm after solat Jumaat prayer, and took just about half an hour to arrive at the Istana Budaya. Istana Budaya’s officer greet and warmly welcoming us as their visitors and give full support for this kind of programme. They briefly explain on the management and the technical part of the Istana Budaya’s operation. After short corporate video presentation and briefing, the best part come. We were on the site…. Especially for the first time comer to the Istana Budaya, they were very impressed with the architecture and the elegant design of the Panggung Sari ( main theatre hall). Everyone got the experience to sit on the VIP’s sit even for couple of minutes and free!!
Smiley Face


Next, we were bring to the stage which make us more impressed with the high technology of the equipment and movement stage. But we were a bit disappointed because cannot watched by our own eyes the movement of the stage live. They were having rehearsal and final preparation for Jamal Abdillah concert. More explanation from the technician on the technical part attracted engineering students and could be said attract some of the participants to have practical training and maybe working at Istana Budaya!

After short tour to the site and closing ceremony, gigamianz start to pose… Everyone give excited and happy faces to be captured on the camerassss…… It was awesome and sweet memories even for short duration of hours. Thanx everyone

VOLUNTEER AT ZOO NEGARA

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketDATE: 25/07/2009
DAY: SATURDAY
VENUE:Zoo Negara, Kuala Lumpur
BY: mi$$RED

EDITED BY: Pa'eja



IIUM Angklung Club had organized a Zoo Negara Volunteer Programme which aims at providing a close relation between human and wildlife by learning to understand their needs and social behaviour.
Smiley Face
By working hand in hand with the zookeepers, this programme builds up the students’ self-confidence and spirit through the community services activity which raises awareness to the wildlife conservation. Apart from this, we also had the chance to explore the works and duties of zookeepers by assisting them on daily routines.
Smiley Face

The Students were divided into two groups where Group 1 consists of 17 angklung players and 3 percussionists. This group volunteered as performers at Zoo Negara on that day, performing to visitors and zoo inhabitants. Our performance started as early as 8.30 a.m and ended as late as 4.30 p.m with a few breaks in between the performances. We played two to three songs at each stop/check points; Savannah Walk, Ape Centre, Lake Birds, Reptile Park, Malaysian Elephants, Bear Complex, Zoo Negara’s Main Entrance, Animal Show, Cat Walk etc. We played Ketipang Payung, Bosame Mucho, Rasa Sayang, Medley When The Saint Go Marching and You Are My Sunshine, Medley Mary Had A Little Lamb and Twinkle-Twinkle Little Star, Enjit-Enjit Semut,Poco-Poco and Kopi Dangdut. All the zoo visitor were entertained by us and lots of people were so excited to see us play angklung because it is not a common musical instrument and therefore one of our objectives which is to promote angklung to people is a success. BRAVO!
Smiley Face

On the other hand, Group 2 which consists of members of all cultural clubs; Theatre, Gamelan, Caklempong, Umul-Qura, Zapin, Poetry, Dikir Barat, and Angkung were assigned with community services work. They were then were divided by the Zoo Nrgara’s Education Department into groups of five or six students. Their volunteering activities involved promoting the zoo inhabitants to visitors, cleaning the habitats, feeding them and provide their needs. Each group was assigned to certain area such as follows; Great Apes, Monkeys/Lesser Apes, Aquarium, Hoof Stock, Birds Aviary, Animal Show, Children’s World, Hospital, Reptile Park, Bear Complex and Cat Walk.
This programme helped us in improving our communication skills and building and strengthening our self-esteem. It also inspires our spirit through community services and raises awareness on the importance of wildlife conservation. Through this programme we have learned many new things about wildlife and we also understood their needs and natural habitat.
Alhamdullilah, this programme is a success. Thanks to all participants especially to performers because though it was tiring but all of you gave the best commitment for the training and the volunteering work for this programme. Thank you...

We departed from IIUM at 12.00 pm and arrived there at around 4.00 pm. The opening ceremony inauguration was completed by Y.B Tuan Abdul Samad Ibrahim (Adun Seri Menanti). Afterwards, all the participants was distributed to the foster families of two or three students for each foster family. After the opening ceremony, all participants went back with their foster family for Ice-Breaking. On the first day, the time is spent with with foster families. Fortunately, during our visit, it was still fruit seasons so there are fruits everywhere on trees such as manggis,rambutan,jambu air and the most wanted, durian.

For the second day, after the “senam tari” in the morning we were divided into three groups. The first group is assigned to the secondary school, second group is assigned to primary school and third group is assigned to attend Caklempong Workshop. We went back to our foster family house after the program ended. Around 3.00 pm we gathered back at the Perkampungan Budaya Terachi for cultural night preparation. At night, we have a full rehearsal until 12.00 pm. Everyone looked so tired but managed to give a good commitment. Well done everyone!

On the third day, we started our day with “senam tari” and then we were divided again into two groups in which the first group will go to Muzium Istana Seri Menanti for its 100 years day (jubli Emas) and the other group is aasigned to help the villagers in cooking and preparing for the Kenduri Kesyukuran called “merewang”.
Smiley Face
The kenduri started at 8.30 pm. After the VIP gave his speech, all cultural teams were ready to perform accordingly with Yayasan Negeri Sembilan. For the closing, all cultural teams collaborated to perform “Rasa Sayang”. Alhamdulillah the event went well and we received good feedback from the locals.
Smiley Face

Everyone hated to leave.
Smiley Face
We stayed there for about four days and three nights and it is long enough to make us feel close with our foster families but we still have to depart. We depart to IIUM at around 11.00 am. Before we had a long journey to IIUM, we stopped at Ulu Bendul for lunch. We arrived at IIUM at 4.20 pm.
All participants were tired but enjoyed the program. It is a good program as through this program we had the chance to get to know other members of cultural clubs and share our knowledge. This program also helps IIUM’s cultural team to be exposed to outsiders.
In the nut shell, thank you to all participants for your contribution and commitment. May Allah bless you all, good job everyone!

THE WEDDING

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketDATE: 18/04/2009
DAY: SATURDAY
VENUE: Pusat Komuniti Bukit Damansara
BY: mi$$RED

EDITED BY: Pa'eja

Assalamualaikum.....
We thought that our performance at MHI will be our last performance for this semester, but Alhamdulillah we received another invitation to perform at a wedding (Wardina's sister's wedding). It is so challenging because the wedding is during our examination period. The night before the event, we went to the place for a rehearsal. We departed from IIUM at 8 pm. While we waited for our turn, we had some practice outside the hall. This performance is also a challenge because it is our first time to play (Bosame Mucho) while walking into the hall. What we can be said is that, we did badly for the rehearsal just because there are some misunderstanding among us.
Smiley Face
But we didn't give up easily and we kept practicing. We went back to UIA at about 11 pm.

On the day of the wedding, we departed from IIUM at 10.30 am. We felt so nervous because this is the wedding in which it is a memorable event especially for the bride, groom and their family. We don’t want to be the spoiler of their memory, so we tried our best.
Smiley Face
Our nervous level increased when we entered the hall because everybody was quiet and looking at us. We played Bosame Mucho and Rasa Sayang. Alhamdulilah we received a great applause in the hall even though we didn't play perfectly.
Smiley Face
After the performance, all the butterflies and nervousness in our bodies were gone.

Unfortunately, we didn't get the chance to play the other songs that we had practiced due to the short of time. We felt a little frustrated about that
Smiley Face
but we took it positively.
Smiley Face
Then we were invited to enjoy the meal (delicious!). Before we went back to the IIUM, we took some pictures (our 'MUST TO DO' routine after performances..hehehe). Everybody looked fatigue but there are still smiles on their faces. We enjoyed the day and it was an amazing experience.

ON AIR

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketDATE: 25/03/2009
DAY: WEDNESDAY
VENUE: MHI STUDIO (TV3)
BY: mi$$RED

EDITED BY: Pa'eja


Last Wednesday, Angklung Group was given a chance to perform at TV3 for MHI (Malaysia Hari Ini) which is one of famous live morning show in Malaysia. This is the biggest greatest offer that we received so far and we are so happy
Smiley Face
. We were informed about the MHI show last Monday so we don’t really have much time to practice. We started our training A.S.A.P on the same night we received the news.
Smiley Face
. We practiced eight songs namely Enjit2 Semut, Rasa Sayang, When The Saint Goes Marching, You Are My Sunshine, Bujang Lapok, Poco2 and Kopi Dangdut. This performance is quite a challenge because we need to memorize all the song by heart as there might not be enough space for us to put our note and stand
Smiley Face
. Alhamdulillah we memorized the songs in just two days. We departed from IIUM at 6.30am and arrived at about 7.30am. This is our first time in the studio and we were so excited. When we arrived, the show has already started and we took our place to arrange everything before they asked us to perform. Alhamduliilah everything went well. After the show, we took pictures with the celebrities that come on that day like Adibah Noor, Anggun and Wardina etc.
Smiley Face
. After breakfast at TV3 studio we went back to IIUM. From this performance we have learned a lot. We realized the importance of memorizing the songs, to deliver the songs with the right facial expression, and to enjoy the songs that we played. Nonetheless, this is the sweetest memory for this semester and forever.......Thanks to all!!

VENUE: BANQUET HALL
BY:Hanis chan

EDITED BY: Pa'eja

Salam and hye to everyone…

Last Saturday (7th march), Angklung Group has been invited to perform at Asiah Victory Award (AVA). This event was held as an appreciation for Mahallah Asiah’s residents who give excellent performance not only in curriculum but also co-curriculum.

We have the chance to perform at the Banquet Hall in Admin Building. The program started around 8.30 pm after the arrival of the VIPs. It started with the gimmick from Silat Seni Cekak IIUM,
Smiley Face
who performed martial arts with all the knives and sticks. This way, the Malay’s strength and macho-ness showed.
Smiley Face
.

After hearing the speech from all the VIPs, Angklung Group were finally ready to perform a total of 4 songs while the audiences enjoyed their dinner. We performance started with a ‘Compulsory’ song from Angklung Group, Enjit- Enjit Semut. Followed by Bujang Lapok, then the ballad song "Rindu Bayangan". The last song was Rasa Sayang.. Even the emcee of the day sang the songs that we played.

Then, it was finally ‘makan time’ after the performance. Everyone was really happy because we could gave all our best in the performance. It is normal and very important for Angklung Group members to have photography session. The event was a bit of a ’chaos’ because most members of the Angklung Group are "GIGAM (Haha...). One by one the camera flashed to capture the memorable event.
Smiley Face


Cool…. after about 2 days of practice, Angklung Group successfully performed well even though it was the first time for the new members to play some of the songs. Even Bapak, could smile while conducting the performance….that’s a good sign
Smiley Face
. Alhamdulillah, we gain lot of praises from the audiences and the committees. But, we have to remember the Angklung Group motto, ‘Jangan Riak’……

Thanks to all the seniors who still could spend their time performing together with us.. Also not to forget other members, who have to sacrifice the holiday to make this performance a good one..

Keep up the good work!!!

Today, Friday 20th February 2009, Angklung Club organized “gotong-royong” which had been postponed so many times for valid acceptable reasons and today it is like “a dream come true” to finally see it happen.
Smiley Face
We started our “gotong-royong” at about 3.30 p.m. We cleaned up our training room together and helped each other. We polished all of the angklung sets that we have with the special oil(to maintain the condition of angklung and make it more shiny), indexed and numbered the angklung, patch things on the wall, made inventory for clothes, keep the patitur in order (the notes) etc. We enjoyed doing our work together and we can see lots of smiles today.
Smiley Face
We ended the event by having dinner together at Human Science Cafe. Thanks all for coming and sharing the moment together...
