This post is only for the hardcore addict who cant leave any update about Akademi Fantasia 8.
Years ago, 8 years ago to be exact. Akademi Fantasia fever has just started to infect everyone, almost making everyone to subscribe to paid TV network, ASTRO.
I was a hardcore AF addict, who isnt? I still remember all the Saturdays that turned into kinda a family day where everyone will nest in front of the TV, watching Astro Ria, channel 4 (back then). Bawling our eyes out when one of the student get eliminated. And during final concerts, my mom would ask me to text out the AFUNDI for the student that she really fond of.
The first ever Akademi Fantasia winner, Vincent Chong (brother of the the contestant of Amazing Race Asia, Vanessa and Pamela Chong) somehow reminds my mom of her own brother, I think that's why she voted so much.
During weekdays, we would bring our homework and do it in front of the TV to watch the Akademi Fantasia diary episodes. Maybe Malaysian just love watching people being confined in a house, enjoying the drama in life. lol. Maybe its just me. I love watching America's Next Top Model, Malaysian Dream Girl and such. I've stopped watching this phenomenon in 2006 or so. That was the starting year of me being away from home. My mom would still update me on it sometimes. Those were the days.
What got me interested in the new season of Akademi Fantasia if I have outdated myself for so long?
Yes, high school friend who I used to bully go to school with. We were never in the same class though. Okay, I have been writing sentence after sentence then end up pressing the backspace button and end up with the first 2 sentence. I guess, I have some fear that whatever that is written in this blog will be used against him once he got out from the academy. Or maybe I am just scared that people are going to say that I tumpang glamor. Oh well, some high school memories.
The only thing I remembered the most is he always hang out with his cousin who was in the same class with him.. From what I have heard, they are not that close anymore. I guess after years of separation after SPM, no one really contact each other. Everyone is scattered around pursuing studies and careers.
His puppy love? Of course we know about it. It's not very decent to disclose here. But lets just say that they are still in very good terms.
Private joke between us, we would always measures height. I dont know, maybe its a way of ice breaking. lol. Though he is petite, he does have the huge confidence and sheer determination. Though I never realise his talent in singing nor dancing, you can still have a sneak peak into it,here is his youtube channel.
Oh well, after this, he will be a star. And more people will flock with pretense of being friend.
So, enough with the trip down the memory lane. He still need Malaysians to vote for his talent. How to vote? Type AFUNDI(3/5/10) DAUS and send it 32999. Each SMS cost RM0.50. Telco charges apply. Remember, if you dont have ASTRO at home, you can still catch the update online via Youtube.
Who will be the next America's Next top Model? Malaysian Next Top Talent. Okay I made that up. It makes me happy. So, go vote.
