SUJU-M in Malaysia, words truly from heart of an ELF.

What : Hari Belia Negara 2011

When : 28 May 2011
Where : Presint 3, Putrajaya
Who : Super Junior-M (yikes!)

Before I start expressing my thought regarding the attitude of some local artists (big issue, seriously! scroll down to read), I want to wish Happy National Youth Day, youths! I was so excited to celebrate it, well since Malaysia specially invited Super Junior-M to celebrate it with us! An hour free concert of Super Junior-M in Malaysia y'all. Who doesn't want it?

Well, I heard they paid RM2.5M to invite them to perform.. Wow, quite a huge amount of money to achieve Himpunan Sejuta Belia. However, they get what they want, more than 2M Malaysians came to give support.. and I bet most of them are ELFs! hehee.

We arrived at 3 p.m., parked the car and walked from Presint 1 to Presint 3 (roughly about 2.5km!). As soon as we arrived, we went straight to the venue and get to sit in front of the stage. Luckily the guard let us in since I was wearing 'Super Junior' nametag and he said 'Hahh bagi dia masuk. Ni dia rombongan ketua kelab penyokong Super Junior' LOL The event started at 5 p.m. with our PM's arrival, speech and awards given to Belia Contoh 2011.

The concert started at 7.30 p.m. with local artists' performances e.g. Farah Asyikin, Dewi Mentor, Nadia AF2 and Azlan Typewriters.

After a longggggg wait, seriously long. I've even helped 2 people passed out next to me. And Suju-M finally showed up at 10 p.m with their new song, Perfection. They then sang individually and I started to feel sick and about to puke after 7 hours waiting. Felt like this an hour concert was too long.. sorry! But I did enjoy their performances, I was just tired.

They sang 4 group songs and 5 individual songs in total. They answered questions from chosen ELFs, and gave hugs!! Lucky girls. ELFs down the stage were like "Nooooo oppa~" "Andwae yooooo~". Thank god Heechul is not part of Suju-M! hehee

Two unforgettable moments when the host, Serena C teached Eunhyuk to say 'sayang' and he did. 'Sayangggg~' to fans. And he sounded so manja when he said it. Auwww~ And very funny Kyuhyun responded to a fan asked him 'Do you love Malaysian ELFs?' something like that and guess what, he said 'Pat taya tanya, tattaya tanya'. Well what he meant was 'tak payah tanya'. kekee comel. Sungmin with 'Sayang sayang Malaysia' which actually 'Saya sayang Malaysia'. They ended up the performance with encore song Super Girl, perfectly.

Los Angeles.

Non-stop writing since yesterday, I have jet-lag this couple of days. Slept at 12pm, woke up at 8pm. Pretty hectic, aite? I don't even manage to settle up everything here since I live like an owl. job confirmation, graduation pictures.. I better do something tomorrow!

Ok, lets begin.. After 5 hours on plane from Chicago to LA, we finally arrived at LAX Airport and took shuttle bus to La Quinta Inn & Suites. It was a nice hotel, very near to the airport, near to McD and Subway, free shuttle bus (you have to catch blue bus on red line), breakfast is provided, and the most important thing is, Wi-Fi in the room.

I once tweeted this on twitter, "It is a nice hotel, but I don't see Koreans here.." Then a friend of mine replied, "For God sake, you're in US Aya, cari mat salleh lar hahha" LOL but err. err.. my eyes can only see single eyelid or oppa mata sepet! hehee ok, enough. After all, I totally recommend this hotel. Well, except for the expensive parking fees (20 bucks per day!).

The next day, we went to Hollywood which took about half an hour from the hotel. We parked the car nearby and walked to the center of attraction, Hollywood Walk of Fame! It was sunny on that day (about 17C), but we were able to take tonne of pictures before took off Hop-on Hop-off bus tour. We got on blue route before changed to yellow route which headed to Route 66. You guys can check the routes here and choose anywhere you want to visit. the Hollywood Walk of Fame!
I want Johnny Depp..!
Ohh here he is~! my handsome Jack Sparrow! tengah tunggu i ke? :p
Oh dear~!
Ariff who obsessed with Toy Stories, finally able to meet and took photo with Buzz in person!
We passed by Beverly Hills (90210, y'all!) and waited for the next bus on yellow route.
The place where GaGa started her career.
You see the yellow shop behind me? Bijan sells the most expensive designer good with USD$15,000 per item, minimum!
We took off at Santa Monica beach to see the real California beach looks like (tempat dimana Pamela Anderson berlari2 anak di pesisir pantai memakai suit merah menyelamatkan mereka yang lemas dalam Baywatch hehee). We had our seafood lunch nearby before got on the tour bus again, headed to Hollywood sign!
I insisted to upload this photo since I really love cheese. eps this doritos with cheese, mamma mia~!
We only managed to see Hollywood sign from the bus, since it was almost 6 p.m., and very cold! We took off the bus at the same stop we got on, in front of Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood on Hollywood Blvd, so we bought some souvenirs from HRC (again! I should buy a HRC Hollywood tee instead of HRC Chicago's. sigh) and other souvenirs shop. We then took more pictures before went back to our hotel and ate our vege pizza we bought at Numero Uno.
The Harry Potter's stars, Ariff and me!
We had heavy breakfast before took off to LAX Airport to catch flight to go back to Malaysia. Adik, KakLayla and her family continued their journey to Universal Studios, then they planned to go to San Diego after. Jealous, but it's ok. Since I only have 10 bucks left in my purse.. new Coach purse. tehee. And I'm sunburned.

With love,
