T Music Festival, Awesome!

I just had my feet touched Penang's soils an hour ago or so after an exhilarating night at the T Music Festival, thanks to the great people of Nuffnang Malaysia. So, here's my journey from Penang to KL in a detailed but not too detailed manner.

I came back from Gurney around 1+ am and slept around 2+ am only to wake up around 7+ am to prepare myself for the KL trip which I had yet to buy the ticket at that moment. I managed to get myself onto the 9.30am bus and reached KL around 2+ pm. The only reason I went to KL a day earlier was just to collect the concert tickets at the Nuffnang office at KL. If they allowed me to collect it in their Penang branch, I would have go to KL on the concert day itself which was on Saturday.

Anyway, after I reached KL, the first thing I did was to take the monorail to Medan Tuanku station and look for Nuffnang office. I circled around the area, unable to find it. Even asking people around the area were unhelpful. After calling their office and with some stroke of luck, I managed to arrive and collect the tickets.

My pair of tickets...

Their office was so nice and sophisticated. The whole ambiance emitted such a warm feeling. And of all places, I bumped into Dylan in the office. He also was collecting the tickets for the same concert. It's been so long since I last saw him. He didn't really change much.

After a brief catching up, we went to our separate station. I went to KL Sentral only to change to KTM Komuter to go to Mid Valley where I was to meet up with Audrey and Stefanie. I waited at Starbucks, having a cup of steaming hot chocolate, doing my assignment while waiting for their arrivals. Luckily, by the time they had arrived, I had finished with my work.

We went to Spaghetti Grill's to have our dinners. Of course, we talked and talked like a bunch of people who didn't talk for a while. Honestly, I missed talking to them. It was always filled with funny moments, what with Stef and Ida Nerina and all.

The environment feels like some American diner...
Chicken mushroom soup
Mozerella cheese stick as appetizer
Seafood pasta as main course

By the time we finished with our meals, Mid Valley was preparing to close and we had to say sayonara to each other. I went back to my uncle's house and took a rest before the concert tomorrow.

I went to Time Square to have a walk while waiting for the grand arrival of my friend from Penang who will watch the concert with me. When she arrived, we went to watch Orphan before we went to Bukit Jalil for the concert. The movie was a blast, suspenseful and filled with excitement. Kudos must be given to the child actor playing Esther for being so malicious and evil.

Then, we went to Starbucks for take away dinner before we went to Bukit Jalil for the music blast. We were late a little bit since we thought it could not be on time, being Malaysian and all, but we were wrong, but those artists appeared first were those from local and lesser-knowns.

The concert went smoothly but halfway throughout the show, a major glitch happened. A fire around the cable was set up, causing black out for the concert. It took about 30-45 minutes for the organizers to fix the problems, making the audiences restless and some even left the concert. To make sure the people remain in their places, the emcees of the concert brought out an artist at a time, singing some part of the song to calm down the audiences.

The concert at first hour or so...

A short video of Soler performing...extremely low quality

For both me and my friend, only after the glitch both of us got excited as the artistes appearing then were top notch. We sang along with the lyrics appearing on the scenes (I sang based on how well I knew the songs since I don't even know most the characters in the lyrics...). When Joey Yung appeared, the last artist of the day, it was almost 2am by the time she finished.

Justin Lo appeared before David Tao and Joey Yung

Then, we took a shuttle bus back to Pudu Station where we waited at the McDonald's for our bus ride back to Penang. By the time we were on board, we were extremely tired. Overall, it was such a fantastic time we had.

Here, I feel like saying, THANK YOU, NUFFNANG!!!
