Live On MHI [18.03.2011]

Assalamualaikum...hello guys. Hope all of you stay healthy despite the rainy weather nowadays..We have a  new story to share again..^^

        About 6.30 am in the morning, with angklung in the hand, our members were rushing from angklung training room to the centre because we were a bit late from the master plan schedule for a big event. We'll be live on MHI (Malaysia Hari Ini) at TV3 today!!!. Yahoo..! A round of applause for us..hehe ^^

         After we had a bit of breakfast, at 7.15 am we were already stand by on the stage together with the members of IIUM Percussion Club and Andeka Caklempong Club. We can say that we're lucky on that morning to see how TV crews setting up their things and running here and there to make sure their show runs smoothly. While we were chattering about this and that, we noticed that Wardina Safiyyah was walking towards the MHI's set and she's waving to us with a sweet smile..hihi ^^  She's so pretty and nice..just like we always see her on TV.. Later then, we saw other MHI host like Nurul Syuhada Nurul Ain, Abby Fana, Fedtri Yahya, Ally Iskandar and M.Zul..On that day, Nurul Syuhada & Abby Fana were wearing hijab and they looked very pretty.. ^^

         Altogether on the show, we perform 3 songs which are "Bujang Lapok, Joget Pahang & Rasa Sayang "  All of our performance were a collaboration with Andeka Caklempong & IIUM Percussion Club and just right before the commercial break. So, overall there were 3 times that we are on screen.hehe.. ^^  Around 8.00 am, we already stand by to perform our first song ~ Bujang Lapok. Half an hour after that, around 8.30 am, we perform "Joget Pahang.." This time, our performance were a bit difference from other performance because we add some choreography to the songs..Alhamdulillah we were able to perform the choreography and the songs very well even though we just practice the choreography on the night before! hihi..Another round of applause for us ^^

          Before the MHI ends, Ally Iskandar came to us and asked if we can play another one song to closed up the show.. He also asked us to play the song a little bit longer until they show us the signal to stop.Fortunately, we already prepared "Rasa Sayang" and we just played the song right after the cue.. Alhamdulillah, we're able to perform this song very well too.. ^^

           After the MHI show ends, our conductor told us that there were a request if we can perform the songs, we played Bujang Lapok & Joget Pahang happily again as requested and together with a bright of smile to the audience..We received a thunderous applause from the audience.. Alhamdulillah...

           *So, to sum up this entry, we would like to thanks to our conductor of the day which is our ex-president Rashid Hamzah for accepting the offer as the conductor, although at first, he refused it.hihi..Thanx so much Rashid..! Plus, we would like to say thank you to Andeka Caklempong Club because they have invited us to perform today and give us the opportunity to perform live on TV.hehe.. And finally, thanks to the IIUM Percussion Club because they are willing to accompanied the angklugianz performance today...^^

Board of Angklung meeting


Yeah week 14th has come, the board of Angklung had their final meeting together with them at the training room. Just 2 of them out of 14 absent, but still they had laugh together during meeting. Like usual, we had go through the meeting just as the agenda planned by our President:

1. Welcoming remarks
2. Update of every single bureau
3. Rising issues
4. Round table
5. Briefing on Solat hajat and mass gathering

After we had highlighted some certain things that are actually should be on our list-to-be-done in this semester, every bureau seems having moderate progress throughout this semester but still the effort clearly can be seen. What our President had always remind us that in whatever case people says negative of our effort it is okay because of the effort you guys gave is actually enough for him. Only Allah will granted you not them inshaAllah. Yet, the President kept reminding us to work more hard on the following tasks given and try not just to fooling around and neglect the responsibilities given which is had already stated by Allah.

I also want to raise up this rising issue about the membership of Angklung Club. Since, throughout this semester the list of ‘sleeping members’ are always keep increase. These people still want us to recognize them as a member of the club but during weekly training, they are not attending at all. Thus, we  board of Angklung had decided that for this kind of people we will give them special requirements which are, first they must pay club fees and also buy the club t-shirt. If not, they will be ‘barred’ from the club. Or in other words, they are not club members anymore. That’s all for this time updates.

Thus, as reminder to all members please do come to this event: Solat Hajat Jama’ie for Final Examination & Mass gathering for semester 2, 2010/2011.

And second event is Inventory Session for PROMARC, COSMO & BUTEM bureau. For all members of these bureaus are compulsory to come and other members are invited as well.

InshaAllah may Allah bless in everything we do even it is maintenance progress for our beloved club.

Thank You.

Angklung Busking Day


From IIUM - KL Central - Central Market - IIUM

7.50 am
The subcommittees of Prep&Tech start to make final checklist for angklung while the subcoms of Special Tasks make final checklist for stands and partitur. After that, the members brought down their angklung+stands+partitur to the back door of CAC to load in the cars. Total up, we brought 102 of angklung, 8 music stands and 8 sets of partitur. After that, we had our breakfast and waiting for the cars to arrive.

8.40 am
Around this time, we start to walk from CAC to the first bus stop. Our target is to filled up the seats in the bus so that we can stay in a group.We have to wait around 10-15 mins before the Rapid KL bus to arrive. All of us were managed to get in the same bus.. ^^ Altogether there are 19 of us that ride the bus [including 2 percussionists] while the rest went to KL Central by car. After that we arrived at Putra@Gombak Station and caught the LRT to the KL Central.


9.30 am
Later then, we arrived at KL Central and start to set up the things and get ready for the first time ever busking program. We started to find our angklung and untie them.. At this time, Bapak has also arrived. The location of our busking is at the 2nd floor of KL Central which is in front of the main entrance. The people around started to show interest when we begun to place the music stands one by one. All of us were very nervous but still trying to act cool.hehe... ^^

10.30 am - 12.30 pm
We start to perform our first song which is Joget Pahang around 10.30 am. The first song is quite messed up.haha...due to the nervousness maybe? Then, we played the 2nd song~Rindu Bayangan by Jay Jay. [one of Fatin favourite songs and me too ^^] Followed by Besame Mucho ~ a Spanish song, Ada Apa Denganmu by Peterpan and Love Story. While we were performing, there are other four members under the committee of Prep&Tech and Special Task who were assigned to distribute the pamphlets about our club to the audience.

After we played Malam Bulan Dipagar Bintang by P.Ramlee & Saloma, we took a rest for about 15-20 mins. During this rest time, the audience were able to asked about our club, trying to play angklung and taking pictures with the angklung. There are also some audience who are interested to buy angklung and asked us how much of the cost. *For your information, angklung comes altogether in one set that consist of 62 angklung [if I'm not mistaken] including the bass and melody. And there are also a set of angklung that consist of the melody only. The cost for one set of angklung is about RM10 000 and above. It's very expensive isn't it? That's why we really take care of our angklung. ^^

After the rest, we continue playing the remaining songs which are Iktiraf by Raihan, Pandang-pandang Jeling-jeling by Dato' SM Salim & Siti Nurhaliza, Cindai by Siti Nurhaliza and our final song ~ Kopi Dangdut. We finished the performance around 11.25 am. Then, we gather our angklung and start to tie them again to move to other destination ~ Central Market. However due to the several circumstances, we were stucked at KL Central until 12.30 pm.


12.45 pm - 3.00 pm
We took LRT from KL Central to Central Market and it just took 5-10 mins to arrive there. Even though the players has arrived, but the cars that brought our angklung and percussion's stuff were stuck in the traffic jam. So, we have to wait for them for about 20 mins. When we got a text that the cars has arrived, we went to the Central Market's car park to unload the angklung and other stuff. We start to set up the place for the performance and placed our music stands there. After that, all of us took some time to perform our Zuhr Prayer and had our lunch.

3.00 pm - 4.30 pm
Here, we were provided with the PA system. Plus, before we begin our performance, we were introduced to the audience to attract more people and as a result, people start to circulating us. We start to perform Joget Pahang, followed by Rindu Bayangan, Besame Mucho, and other songs like what we have performed at KL Central this morning. After each of the songs finished, we get a tremendous applause from the audience. 

As at the KL Central, four of us were assigned to distribute the phamplets to the audience.. The audience give good feedback and are enjoyed with our performance especially the tourists from outside of Malaysia. They show a lot of interest about angklung & percussion and tried to play the instruments. We finished our performance around 3.38 pm. After giving some time to the audience to ask, taking pictures and tried to play the angklung, we begin to clean up our stuff and tie the angklung. 

4.30 pm -6.00 pm
At 4.30 pm, all of us had already in the Metro Bus to go back to IIUM. This bus will go straight into the campus, so we don't need to change our transport anymore.. All of us were very tired yet still happy and proud with ourselves because we have completed one of our programs.^^  The Metro Bus took about one hour to reach our campus. We stopped at the second bus stop because we have to continue our busking program with the post-mortem session at our training room. Before we proceed with the post-mortem session, we took some time to perform our Asr prayer at CAC's musolla.

6.01 pm - 7.30 pm
Promptly at 6.01 pm, we begin our post-mortem session...At this session, everyone must talked and spoke out everything that they felt not right during this busking program so that the members can improve in organizing other programs. This post-mortem session ended right after the azan for Maghrib prayer ends. Thus, that's the end of our Busking Program on 6 of March 2011. This day will be one of our memorable day in life... ^^

* the angklung members wants to say thank you to Bapak [our trainer], to our super senior Kak Nana & Abg Syam and not to forget, to the 4 percussionist from IIUM Percussion Club [Bad, Hafiz, Nazirul & Anas] because they agreed to accompanied our busking team today.. THANK YOU SO MUCH for all of your support... ^^

Inventory session

On Saturday evening after the rigorously training with Training and Development Bureau (TDEV), a day before the Angklungians who join performance at KLCC perform which will be held on Sunday 27th February, they are having their first inventory session in this semester. For your information, the inventory session is a slot where the club members polish their own Angklung using oil and tissue. The purpose of polishing the Angklung is to make Angklung looks more shiny so that people would mesmerized with those Angklung. But not all Angklung they had polish it during that evening, just some of it that will be using for KLCC performance since time really constrain.

The members who join this inventory session had a very happy time together laughing and get socialized to each others. This kind of activity make the members themselves feel attach together and strengthen their ukhuwwah. Alhamdulillah.

InshaAllah the inventory session would continuously in progress after this to maintain the instrument itself so that the Angklung that we used would produce better sound during our training and performance. We are very hopeful that we could maintain all the Angklung in a better ways as to reminisce the effort of the previous seniors before to get few sets of Angklung.

Thank You.
