Matthew giving the crowd some FFAF love.

I have missed the first time Funeral For A Friend came to Singapore and sadly this will be the first and last show I’m gonna see them live or ever. This Last Chance To Dance Tour is a farewell show to all the fans. A lot of member changes didn’t stop FFAF to lose their mojo but after longtime guitarist Darren Smith left there is no way telling if FFAF is really back on track. Music wise the sound have change from the screamo, post-hardcore and melodic style that we loved and adore to the more fast hardcore, metalcore style that they’re trying to achieve. And achieved they did. There are no bad album FFAF makes and I’m not just saying that because of blind fandom but because it’s a fact –  These guys makes music from the heart and it resonates on every song.

Sick Of It All – Step Down (Footage from Asian Tour 2015 SG)

After 7 years SOIA came back to the Little Red Dot City to conquer the hearts of all hardcore fans. It was sweet, it was nostalgic, it was brutal. With hardcore bands like King Ly Chee (HKHC) and  Straight Forward (LCHC) you’ll never go wrong, top it up with Oi punk/punk rock bands like The Bois and Iman’s League the energy just keeps on over flowing.

KOMYSB2015 is an annual event sponsored by the Royal Family of Alor Setar Kedah Malaysia. This event became popular to nearby countries including Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines and also Japan, not because of the generous prizes but because of the camaraderie and for charity. There are sporting events like netball and street soccer, they also include cultural awareness, singing and declamation contest but the most favorite of the crowd were the extreme sporting activities like BMX stunt, BMX flatland, aggressive inline skates and wall climbing.

Almar & Daisy Wedding

Almar & Daisy Wedding Video

I always turn down last minute video and photo of events more so for weddings. A wedding is an important part of a couple’s life so it’s a bit tricky not to mess it up for the clients, that’s why I don’t accept a last-minute wedding shoot. My wife talked me into it and we did made through the event without any fuss, besides I love shooting weddings, telling their love story even on a brief moment is magical not just for the couple but for me and for others as well. This is not your typical church wedding or garden wedding, it’s has a more humble set-up than we usually see on videos and films. I’m still happy we’ve done it, and even in a very short notice we manage to pull it off. Hope you like this simple wedding video. If you like what you see, please do follow my work , like, subscribe or comment. Cheers!

Prenatal Photo Session – Alice Holding A Flower

We have a saying that a baby is a blessing, and I guess it’s true, this new life brings joy to the couple, the family and the people surrounding it. It’s always a joy to capture this moment that is truly a miracle. I’m not a sentimental person but bearing a child is the most wonderful thing in the world. I’m just glad to have shot this lovely couple and their soon-to-be child that happens to be my Godson. I apologize for the late posting. Hope you enjoy the photos. Continue reading

The KaeKae Show – Kid’s Star Concert 2014

I’ll be smirking when I see Moms and Dads acting like lunatics when their kids are performing on stage. I told myself that I would never be like them Stage Fathers and Mothers pushing their kids to perform. Well I guess this is how it feels like being one. It felt like I’m the one on the spot, anxious and at the same time feeling proud of my daughter performing on stage. I don’t really worry about her having mistakes, that’s where good memories are made – beautiful flaws in life makes the perfect Kodak moment. This post is a bit late but still worth sharing. Hope you enjoy this video. Credits to my wife for doing the B-roll shots. Cheers!

Manny Librodo’s Boudoir and Beyond 2014

Manny Librodo's BOUDOIR & BEYOND SINGAPORE 2014

Manny Librodo’s BOUDOIR & BEYOND SINGAPORE 2014 – Youtube

This photography workshop was the 222nd of Manuel “Manny” Librodo. Imagine how many people he had inspired throughout the years. The press releases and testimonials about him proves that he’s not just an awesome photographer but a people person as well. A cool guy if you know him and a true mentor, knowing that he’s a full-time teacher (in an international school in Bangkok) makes his workshop more upbeat and efficient – the reason why people are coming back for more. The experience they get from each and every workshop is very different from one another. For the  patrons it’s not just about learning photography but a camaraderie that leads to a good relationship with Manny and the crew. Definitely there will be more workshops to come and I’ve heard that a book will be publish soon, better watch out for that. This workshop was organized by the hard working  Team of Walls and Frames in cooperation with MOE.

Alice in Chains – Singapore Rock Fest 2014

Alice in Chains – Singapore Rock Fest 2014

I’m thinking of a good introduction for this awesome band but I don’t know how to start. Maybe I’ll start when I first heard one of their song. Once upon a time there was a radio station called 97.1 WLS FM (I also don’t know why I even tuned in here, LA 105 and NU 107 just started) this was on my high-school years, fourth year to be exact, every Saturday night the radio station feature songs or bands that aren’t usually aired on regular basis, genres like hard rock, metal and grunge were not the norm ’cause they usually air pop music and other junk, this was also the time when Nirvana’s hitting stardom. When I first heard this Alice in Chains song I was already dozing off to dreamland, suddenly I was awaken by the strong lyrics of the song and how surreal the whole music was then the words “I Stay Away” echoed in my brain, in that instance I became a big fan.

Alter Bridge – Singapore Rock Fest 2014

Alter Bridge – Singapore Rock Fest 2014

I don’t really miss Creed and I think it’s better that they don’t bother reuniting ever again. The new line-up is way more cooler than the former line-up. Songs are more deeper not that catchy (as Creed) which is good in a way. I just hope I don’t see KTV machines  flooded with Alter Bridge songs. Most likely that a Creed song will be sang on a KTV bar (bet my a$$ on that) 3 out of 10 guy will do. It’s a good thing that Alter Bridge’s sound is an acquired taste of music – either you love it or hate it specially for the fans of the old Creed. I think they’re awesome and damn good musicians, can’t wait to see them again. Here are some photos of day two March 6, Singapore Rock Fest 2014.

Rob Zombie – Singapore Rock Fest 2014

Rob Zombie crowd photo – Singapore Rock Fest 2014

Rob Zombie was first known as the lead vocals of White Zombie which actually sounds similar to his later songs minus the gimmicks. One example is the song Thunder Kiss ’65 which is from the early White Zombie album titled “La Sexocristo: Devil Music Volume 1”. Rob Zombie’s song has a more industrial metal and electronica combined sound to it with matching horror or shock rock imagery. Continue reading
