S.O.X. – If you’re over 18, you just don’t get it!
Hate to say this but how I wish I was born 10 years later, at least I still manage to enjoy more benefits as a student. Teeheehee =)
Once again, CELCOM S.O.X the best prepaid plan for student, is organizing the All – Stars Drum & Dance 2011 competition . It attracted 8400 crowds to the National Stadium last year, I believe it can be even better this year’s Final in KL. If you missed out the 2010, then check out their links.
As you know, I was part of Chung Hua band members when I was young, so I’m very alert when it comes to activities that relates to Band. As for the East Malaysia team, they are choosing 4 teams out of 7 that will be competing in KL for the Final. Since the event was held at Boulevard Shopping Complex Miri, both Alex and I spent a little “wild” afternoon joining this bunch of young kids. Wahahaha, after seeing them I feel that I’m back to 16.
I’ve took a lot of pictures while Alex helps to do the video recording. Before I start covering this event, I think I better show off a picture here as a motivation to go on the entire post. :p
Gotcha! Yah, the Gotcha man is here.
I dare dare go infront and say , “Hi Ean, can I take a picture with you?”. Arrrgh, he’s so cute and friendly. Luckily Alex did not get jealous because personally I think Ean looks better than Alex. Hahahaha
Ok, Let’s begin with the rocking moment and I let my pictures do the talkings =) Sorry there’s really too much to share with you, so it might slow down a bit loading the pictures. Good things are worth to wait!

Total of 7 teams, and they have put their best efforts. The judges would choose 1 team that will automatically qualify to the Final, while the remain 6 teams will have to battling each other.
The judges are cracking their head, it’s hard to make a decision. All the teams are superb!

Let’s get back to the stage, and see who’s the automatic qualifier for the Final.
All the teams gathered and waiting for the results.

By looking at their expression…
YES! They are the 1st team which is automatically qualify to the FINAL. Congratulations to CH BAND!
Meaning that 6 other teams would need to battle each other.
Shan Tao vs St Joseph - The winner is St Joseph
Green Road Vs St Columba – The Winner is Green Road
Riam Road vs Lutong, the Winner is Riam Road.
Although the result has been announce, CH BAND would like to give another performance to all their fans and supporter.
Red team in action again.
Playing with confidence.
Risking for something extraordinary.
Telling the world, let’s BATTLE!
I think CH BAND really deserve to be the winner. Despite of their performances, their outfits are also putting 100% effort. Those parents are really rich to invest in these.
So if you wish to watch their performance, here’s a video from Alexallied.com
The event ended with certificates giving ceremony to all the participants.
