Well, Saturday was kinda filled up for me. As some people from UTP know, the UTP Rotaract Club had their installation night at the Ipoh City & Country Club. I was there to perform a couple of songs with Adonis and one of my own as well. There were about a hundred or maybe slightly less than that over that night.
We went down there pretty early in Hamizah's Viva, got lost a bit, before stopping at McDonalds to wait for someone else to lead the way before discovering we were only five minutes away from the place. We brought our gear down and I was pretty pumped to be using UTP's Laney acoustic amplifier since I've always wanted to try use my guitar with one of those.
It was pretty cool in the beginning and then the amp started making plenty of fuzzy noises until I gave up on it and decided both Adonis and I would have to perform separately, since there were only two microphones available, whereby one would be used for the guitar and another for singing.
The performance went on all right I suppose. Adonis put on his two songs, and I did one song. Unfortunately, one of the staff didn't really know how to adjust the mixer settings properly and practically muted Adonis towards the middle of his second song. I quickly got Kuo Chun to set me up when I came on next, trying to remedy the situation a little bit. So far, in all the time that I've played/practiced/performed that song, I think it'd be fair to say that night was the best I've done so far, so I was pretty okay with that. I suppose I could say it was a decent performance.
I stayed over in church that night, and boy did I enjoy it, haha! I'd brought my laptop along, connected it to the lcd projector, hooked it up to the mixer and had a nice long session of "Switchfoot Live @ Ventura Theatre". Watching it with so much more volume and a whole lot more screen is always enjoyable, hahaha! I'm still very much into the way they did This Is Your Life, American Dream, Faust Midas & Myself and Only Hope on that performance.
That was my weekend highlight, mostly.
I just have one special feature.
AP News: On Sunday afternoon at 3.45 p,m, UTP student How Mei Le was assassinated, suspected to have been shot by a sniper rifle. The victim was sitting in the front seat of the van, accompanying the driver when a shot was suddenly heard and her head slumped to the side. Police came later that day and took the body for post-mortem. The body has yet to be released. However, shocking news has come about with reports of a Mei Le look-alike was strolling around UTP. It is suspected the look-alike is a clone and not the real person. The public is advised to be wary of this clone and not make personal contact.
Through preliminary investigations, police suggest the assasination was performed by a professional, involving the use of a special sniper rifle using bullets that are very small and do not produce blood spillage from entry wounds. The public is encouraged to provide the police with any useful information if they have any.
The photos revealing the aftermath of this horrible incident is as below:
