Spontaneous Saturday

Woke up at 10.30am today. Decided to jump out of bed and went downstairs for breakfast. Had a bowl of cereal. Later, I came back upstairs to play AoM. H called and we were planning to go for a drink.

Mum then came home at about 12pm and told me that she has 4 tickets to a charity concert in support of the cause of Autism. Since she mentioned Harith Iskander, I decided to give it a go. Texted H to tell cancel the tea session.

One Mind, One Heart, One Cause

Four Tickets :)

At about 12.45pm, Mum, J and I went to pick E from school. Then, we went straight to KLCC. The show was scheduled to start at 2pm but we decided to have lunch first. So, we went to Sakae Sushi.

There, we took some food off the conveyor belt while I ordered some other stuff from the computer. It was really nice "clicking and clicking". I KNEW that it would lead to over-ordering. And it DID! I had to force myself to finish the Chicken Katsu.

Cheese Sushi - RM 5.90

Tuna in FuChuk - RM 3.90

Mixed Vegetable Tempura - RM 1.90

Soft Shell Crab Maki - RM 9.90

Soft Shell Crab Handroll - RM 3.90

Unagi Kabayaki - RM 12.90

Tori Karaage - RM 6.90

Tori Katsu - RM 8.90

Besides that, it was actually a good lunch. Was very stuff after that too. Mum paid the bill and was given a free gift because we exceeded RM80. A small tube of toothpaste. WTF, man!

Darlie, Tea Care Mint (complimentary)

After that, we made our way to the Convention Center. Went to level 3 and was just in time for the END of the boring speeches. Thank goodness we did not skip lunch :D The planery hall was super nice! Nice and comfy seats, Cool design, and Great sound system!

First, they showed us a video on Autism. Then, few kids from NASOM (National Autism Society of Malaysia) came out to sing a few songs. Later, Umar (one of the kids) sang a few songs solo. After them, the "Undercover Drummers" came up to perform. I wasn't that impressed though...

The host, Dato Yasmin Yusuff introduced Clarence Kang (another autistic kid) who came out and played the Grand Piano. He was good! Later, Sean Wong (Malaysian Artiste) did a Mime and sang a song.

We had a 10 minute intermission before the performances continued. Izran (autistic kid) came on stage and played 4 songs on his keyboard. That was a fun performance. Then, Atilia (Malaysian Artiste) came out and sang a few songs.

Finally, the person we were waiting for, Harith Iskander, appeared. He stood on stage and cracked some jokes. He was FUNNY! XD. Later, Genervie Kam (Malaysian Artiste) came out and played a few song with her acrylic violin.

When she was done, Sharizan Borhan came out. I wasn't expecting much from this guy but he impressed me when I found out that he did the voice-over for the Moon-man in the "McD 24 hours" ad and the singer for the KFC ad. He had a very nice singing voice too! :)

Then, Brian John Yim (Malaysian Artiste) came on stage to play 2 songs on the grand piano before singing his new song on stage. After all that, the performers gathered to sing one last song.

The concert then officially ended at about 6pm. We then made our way back to KLCC and bought some pretzels from Auntie Anne's. After that, we walked to our car and drove back home.

Sour Cream and Onion - RM 3.60

Got home at about 7pm and we took turns to shower. At about 8pm, all of us drove to Murni for dinner. There, I ordered Roti Planta and shared the Ribena Special with M. For some reason, the Roti Biasa took the LONGEST to come. Even the "special" dishes came out before all the "Roti".

Roti Planta - RM 1.20

Ribena Special (large) - RM 7.00

Chicken Satay (10 sticks) - RM 5.00

At about 9pm, we paid the bill and went home. Got home at about 9.30pm and started uploading pictures. Meanwhile, I played a round of AoM. Stopped at about 10.30pm to chat. After that, I continued blogging.

It's almost 1.40am now. I'll end this post here and go to bed. Goodnight...
