Konsert Awie & Ella

January 5, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Norzila bt Hj Aminuddin, or better known by her stage name Ella, is a popular rock singer in Malaysia. With a career spanning over 2 decades, Ella still holds the local record for the best-selling female artist for selling over 300,000 copies at the peak of her music career. Dubbed as ‘Ratu Rock’ (Queen of Rock) by her local fans, no other title fits her status as a Malaysian rock star better. Her latest solo album, released in 2007 entitled Rama-Rama became one of the most popular songs in that year.

Born as Ahmad Azhar b Othman, he is better known as Awie, the front man for one of Malaysia’s famous rock band called Wings. He left the band and decided to go solo, producing four albums during his time as a solo singer. In 1992, Awie decided to embark on an acting career, starring in a film known as Pemburu Bayang. He carved a name for himself as an accomplished actor, and enjoyed success with other local films such as Sembilu series, Tragedi Oktober, Baik Punya Cilok and Hantu Kak Limah Balik Rumah.

Si Putih and the 7 Makciks

December 18, 2011 at 2:00 pm

Everyone knows the tale of a beautiful young girl with hair as black as ebony, lips as red as blood and skin as white as snow, who had a stepmother who grew envious of her stepdaughter’s beauty. She summoned her hunter to kill the daughter and bring back her heart as proof. Faced with such innocence, the guard could not bring himself to do the evil deed and helped this fair maiden escape into the woods, where she stumbled upon a cottage own by seven colourful characters.

When the stepmother found out that this fair maiden was very much alive, she took it upon herself to get the task of killing her done. Three attempts were made to take this girl’s life, and all but the third attempt failed to do so. Many a girls may have sighed and wished for their own version of Prince Charming when he showed up just in time to save the fair maiden, and vanquished the evil stepmother.
