The Power of Dikir Barat

I never had more fun in Macquarie than the one i'm having at the dikir barat practice sessions that we have weekly in Nisa's place. Seriously, a place where we can just shout out and lontarkan that voice from inside of you without having to try to be demure or anything (because that defeats the purpose, you see)... Di kala I'm having a very severe headache due to the many assignments (satu je but cam banyak), dikir barat seem to be a great reliever of that pain... although i know nisa doesn't agree...

i mean, of course it's fun... You get to be with the whacky set of Cohort 2 people(haaaa.. takleh join kumpulan KOOL ye, it's a private club), the very, very talented MSA people (ehehehehehe.. president best!) and how often do you get to see Shim and Azan sing in Malay, asli song plak tu (shit! did i say their names??.. opps)??!! Plus the occasional scolding from Cik Pengurus Kumpulan Dikir Barat yang very committed to her job and also the chance to laugh at our own clumsiness with my partner in crime, durra-yang-jahat-dan-suke-kaco-aku (yeah, that's her other long full name...)

But then again, come to think of it, we merely have 2 weeks to M-Fest and as the so-called-tukang karut (haha! reveal ka??), the pressure is knocking on my door already. Hand movements tak ingat lagik.. Lyrics don't asklah kan.. Oh well, i guess the progress of the team is getting on really well. Like what Seng Chee said, get ready for an "eye shocking, jaw dropping" dikir barat show, peeps... Ala ewaaaaaaa, ewa buleeeeeee, ewa buleeeee, teraju tigo.....
