The following is a collection of posters for concerts which were scheduled to be held in Malaysia, but never happened due to one reason or another.
Comments / suggestions are very much welcome. The more high profile the artiste, the better – I strive to list artistes who have sold at least 10 million records.
Here are 2 top class songs that have been on youtube for years, but have received relatively very few views.
I discovered them quite by accident.
In all probability, not many people will choose to climb the mountain this way.
In April 2009, rock climbing pros Conrad Anker, Kevin Thaw, Mark Synnott, Jimmy Chin and Alex Honnold rappelled down Low’s Gully and climbed up a 762m granite wall, the first time such a feat had ever been done.
Blog of the feat, with breathtaking videos.
The most heart-stopping moment could be the following video at 1:07 where Honnold jumped from one side of the rock face to the other.

In June 2012, Yuji Hirayama, Daniel Woods, James Pearson and Caroline Ciavaldini achieved a series of unique ascents on Mount Kinabalu.
Daniel Woods on the top crux of Tinipi 9a+
Grade 9a+ is one of the hardest grades in free climbing.
My favourite photo is of Caroline on Alanga (Fr 8b / 5.13d)
I wonder if Honnold’s task could be made easier if one wore g-tek gloves.
On reaching this milestone on 2nd (or 3rd) August 2013: thank you, my faithful servant, since 13th April 1997.
Probably one could say we have driven it to the ground, or milked it for all it was worth, or for me to have lived the adage of: the sole purpose of having a car is to bring you from point A to B.
To put this in perspective, this is equivalent to the distance to the MOON, or driving 10 times around the earth along the Equator. Yes, you read that right, lest you might need to shop for eyesight assistants at http://www.greateyeglasses.com/.
The 5-minute video is about a primary school teacher who learnt life lessons from a poor student in his class. Yes, watching it WILL make you cry.
- made in Sabah
- zero production cost
- edited with Microsoft Movie Maker, probably even on a slow pc
- the teacher did not wear a helmet while riding his motorcycle!
Of the many T-Shirts we bought from China during our recent trip there, this particular one didn’t have any takers.
After taking a closer look, now I understand why…
Here’s something which I am not sure have ever been done before.
I attended the third annual family day (my mother’s side) in Tambunan on 31st May 2013.
Hearing good reviews about the lighting and sound system at Kaamatan Sugandoi 2013 (officially called “Sugandoi Kaamatan Nazatan Pogun Sabah 2013″), I attended the final for the first time ever.
I finally visited the Great Wall of China earlier this month.
When I first saw it in front of my eyes, I felt the same emotions as when I first saw the Silver Star at Bethlehem, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Big Ben, or the Eiffel Tower : places / monuments I’ve learnt and read about since I was small, formed my own imaginations of what to expect should I see them for real.
The section has been renovated, and hence look very pretty indeed, I half expected to see cast stone fountains on the sides.
Yes, I saw countless graffiti on the wall itself, but I saw some clearly from Malaysia that made we wonder: do you really need to mention your place of origin as you write on the inner walls of one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, and of course UNESCO World Heritage Site?
Here are 2, pixelations mine:
