TPM's Visit, Sutun2 and a kempot Saturday...

Got home at about 2 a.m this morning, after starting the day at 5a.m and a light nap at about 2pm. So it was a kempot Saturday as i got up only at 2 pm.... Never so ever I was seperated from my body for a period of time like that, I deserve that time I left my body on the bed and God know's where HE had taken me to. Wallahualam.

So, yesterday TPM came to my uni to open the Young Leader's Convention where all public and private uni representatives of Student Union came to commemorate and take part inthe 3 day convention. As usual, my dept had been called up to make things merrier, to girangkan the ceremony. I had to prepare 6 usherettes to welcome the TPM with flowers. I also had to make sure that the dancers are properly dressed before they go on stage.

The original concept of the launching is A Garden In Bloom, a metaphor for the young leaders (flowers) being in the unversities (garden) as leaders in the future, where it would prepare the future leaders to be matured in leading the nation.

The costumes for the 6 usherretes at first was fantasy like with Larger Than Life flowers on them, very high fashion (It was supposed to be the PM himself coming to officiate the programme in the first place) and at the last minute (around a week before yesterday) the plan changed and the budget slashed, and the costumes ARE NOT to be done (sad-sad-sad). And in one of the last meetings, it was decided that the 6 usherettes were also not needed. FINE! (in DQ intonation). And again, at the VERY LAST MEETING on Monday, my HOD went, IT WAS DECIDED THAT THE 6 USHERETTES WERE WANTED AFTER ALL (betui ka bahasa? *mati la Prof Imah kalau check entry ni- erm.. u nak keranda ape?) DIE DIE DIE.. at the very last minute, I had to crack my head to KAK NAM what ever we had in stock. I was mix and matching costume pieces (I was told that THEY ARE USING GAMELAN for the arrival - BORING!!!- SOOOO OUT OF FASHION!) to suit the new 'addition' to the red carpet ceremony *mati la ABP. I ended up Kak Naming some personal fabrics that i've kept over the past months. And again, they wanted to throw flowers (Bunga Campak??? HAHAHAH) at the VVIP .. ok lah.. sprinkle flowers? Well, with NAN ADO budget, I went to Klang to buy stringed jasmine for my 6 usherettes and got some chrysenthemums for the sprinkled flowers.

This is where I bought the stringed jasmine

Well, thinking that the flowers I bought was insufficient in amount, I decided again to Kak Nam some bunga manggar (still BUNGA right??) for the flower-sprinkle thingy. Thank you my semester 4 students for kak naming the stuff even though I knew u guys were really KEMPOT after the full dress.

My concoction of Bunga Rampai Cyber, a mixture of polymer based bunga manggar and fresh chrysenthemums. SOO cyber age!!

After a tiring morning which started at 5 am with make up call etc, I was extremely kempot. NZ called me to remind me of Ezad's invitation to preview SUTUN 2 on that same night which would eventually start at about 7. I was very inbetween because I had a splitting headache (not enough sleep I guess). Got home at 6pm, called up Ezad for confirmation of time, took my bath and left at 10 to eight and shot off straight to Wangsa Maju. Thank GOD I remembered the way... hihihi... Anyways, stopped by CARREFOUR to get some ice cream for the pot luck and called up Ezad again for directions, SM gave me the directions and not even 5 minutes later, I was signing the guest register at the guard house. By the time I stepped into Ezad's lair, they had JUST STARTED the preview. ALhamdulillah..... Majority of the cast was there except for Is and Sharmila, there were new faces as well. RTM had PASSED it's content AND IT WOULD BE ON AIR ANY TIME SOON!!! So, MRASALAH wait for the screening on RTM folks!!

SUTUN 2 preview at Ezad's

Ezad, thank u for ur invitation. I pray for the success of SUTUN 2. Sutun 2 features the feelings of Adik, a soft spoken guy who just loves teh colour pink. Even though he is effeminate, he too has feelings. Adik who had just enrolled in a local U faces so many complexities being who he is. It is where he made new friends like Sabri (K'ma) and Fitri (Isma Yusoof). He also has a close female companion Zita (Sharmila). Sutun 2 also has sub plots of other people in Adik's life like his fellow kampung friend Khalid (Sharul Mizad) (aiyoh *matila kamus IMAH LENGGOK!!) who wants to be a REAL MAN, denying himself and asking for Adik's father's help to become one. Eventually, in his pursuit to prove his manliness, he met Yam (Sherry) at a bus stop and practiced what Adik's father had taught him.

Want to know more??? WAIT FOR IT TO COME ON UR TELLY SOON!!!

Over all, personally, because I never ever watched the first one before, think that SUTUN 2 is enjoyable and very educational to the Malaysian public. ALLAH created all kinds of people for a purpose HE only knoweth, we as humans have to accept other people as they are and learn to tolerate. Know one to love one. I hope SUTUN 2 would open up new windows for understanding of people like Adik, Sobri and Fitri and other people who are like them in the society. One should stop discrimating or judging people like them just because they are different, they are humans and are breathing the same oxygen GOD had created for all mankind.
