Saturday, at about 1 am.

S, A and me on the highway. A takeout pack of roti canai for people at home, a yogurt drink for S, a guinness and quarter of a joint for me. A handsqueeze for A. This on the stereo:


“Marry Song”

I’ll marry my lover in a place to admire
I don’t have to even ask her I can look in her eyes
And thank God that I am forgiven
I thank all my friends
To say I’ve been truer or they forgotten

Marry my mind is to say the least
Its been awful hard to just stand on my feet
I think I’ll slow down if I am able
I won’t drown in the ocean
For starving my place at the table

Lucky ones are we all til it is over
Everyone near and far
When you smile the sun it peaks through the clouds
Never die for always be around and around and around

How is your sister and what of your brother
Extend hellos to your father and mother
What in the world would cause you any sorrow
Like tea in your loaf
And see how I killed the wheel barrel I borrowed

Lucky ones are we all til it is over
Everyone near and far
When you smile the sun it peaks through the clouds
Never die for always be around and around and around

Pencil Neck, New Name, Song Repeating and Nasi Kerabu

Had a weird dream. I was helping a cousin fix a broken guitar. The neck was completely busted and we were attempting to fix it with pencils. Literally pencils attached together to form a new neck. How’s that supposed to work?

Monsun had a session on Sunday night. Played Padi’s new track Belum Terlambat for the first time. We also played a rearranged original Ledge composition Di Sini, complete with sparkling delay parts. Not bad. The studio we usually rehearse in has set up a recording facility and we discussed the possibility of recording Di Sini to start off.

There was also a request by bassist P to change our current name. Monsun doesn’t work anymore due to its resemblance to two other entitities, namely Hujan, an up-and-coming group and Monsun Industries, a multi level marketing venture. No disrespect to the two but I agree that Monsun will need to be called something else. Ledge suggested Ambulans or Orang Sakit but personally I think those are too depressing. So how la?

S the emerging music lover spent a whole Sunday morning listening and relistening to Colbie Caillat’s Bubbly. So that’s what the repeat 1 song tab is for in iTunes. If only the function is also available in our car’s stereo. Another of her favourite song is Is There A Ghost by Band of Horses. Then again, after 15 consecutive listens you do get a bit weary. It’s a great great song though.

Wokeh. Off for some RM2.00 Nasi Kerabu.
