Alumni IIUM show, KLCC


On 27th of February, we had our most fabulous performance at KLCC for “Majlis Bersama Pemimpin Sempena Dermasiswa Alumni IIUM”. The event was held at Kuala Lumpur Convention Center and was officially launched by our Prime Minister, YAB Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib bin Tun Hj Abd Razak.
We start our training since 2 weeks before the event was held and there were 13 songs we played together. Some of the songs are:

Kopi Dangdut, Ada Apa Denganmu, Rasa Sayang, Enjit-enjit Semut, Rindu Bayangan, Love Story, Bujang Lapok. Geylang Si Paku Geylang, Pandang-pandang Jeling-jeling, Besame Mucho and etc.

The preparation for the event was so pack with full day training and repeatedly playing the songs. But still the preparation was full with those giggling among the performer itself. We had truly happiness among us :D  The performance was collaborate with other cultural clubs which some of it are the Percussion Club and Andeka Caklempong Club.

Setting up instrument

We depart from IIUM at 10.30am and arrived to the KLCC at 11.15am. As we arrived we were placed all of our stuffs at the dressing room provided by the organizer. Immediately after that we had full rehearsal together with the MC and the organizer itself.

The preparation


Later on, the event started on 7.45pm with our team busking at the exhibition area out of the ballroom 1. We had our busking session lasting for 30 minutes together with the Percussion Club. Oh yeah, while we were performing during busking, guess what?! The most famous and handsome singer nodding to us, he is Maher Zain!! Woah, it was such a great performance and experienced for us, performing Angklung in front of the VVIPs which is some of them are our Prime Minister, former Prime Minister – Tun Mahathir Mohamad, Professor Kamal Hassan, Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansur, Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah and etc. and also together in front of Maher Zain. Our performance on that day was conducted by our beloved super senior; Kak Fai. *Thanks Kak Fai..despite your busy schedule, you still agree to help us. Thank you so much.. We love you  ^^

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.

Alhamdulillah, Allah make our journey easy ;)

We went to the First Lady boutique at Jalan TAR to buy the girls dress and went through most of the shops at there to find out boys’ sampin and brooch to put on their songkok. Phuh! It was actually terrible day, being all around the Jalan TAR with the hot temperature and lots of people are crowded there.

Alhamdulillah we found the things we want for our club; the nice and elegance blue baju kebaya, sampin and the brooch. It is actually been for ages the club didn’t buy new costume for performance. Thus, this time InshaAllah the dress we bought would satisfied all the members wearing it and feel comfortable and also feel confidence while playing Angklung.

Oh yeah, here some pictures I attach together during our journey only for the sake of IIUM Angklung Club. Enjoy! : )

Thank You.
