In happier times

*WARNING!* emo post ahead

From left to right: Simon Choo, Pietro (with hair!), Ahmad Izham Omar, Lam Swee Kim, Jacynta Au-Yong and Leilaton Layali

If you didn't know this about me before, I used to work in a recording label called Positive Tone. This was a few years back. I was an A&R guy. If you don't know what it is. Just lookup Simon Cowells job description and it might be that.

I used to work with the most brilliant minds in Malaysian music. Ahmad Izham Omar and Paul Moss. These 2 were my Gurus and till today, 2 men i have great respect for.

Obviously the years have gone by and we have drifted apart seeing all of us are working in different fields now. But at the time we always had one word that sprung to mind. "Family".

I really don't know why i started writing this post and where it's going to lead. But i do know i miss those days. I miss the "family".

Working in a bigger corporation now, you kind of lose that sense of family and belonging. You are just another rat in the rat race.

Those days were all about passion, fun, screwing up together, ideas, struggle and a lot of love. It is kind of painful to know that when i meet some of these old friends, how much we have drifted apart.

I guess finding the picture which was probably taken a good 7 years ago brought back some very happy memories.

These were definetely happier days. And now it's all about money and paying bills. I used to live out of my car back in the day and I loved it so much.

Like i said i have no idea how this post was gonna start or how its gonna end. So i'll just say "thanks for the memories"

In a nutshell

So i finally have the time to blog. It's been a real busy 3 weeks. If you didn't know it was the radio sweeps weeks the last few weeks. Which means more work for all of us. But it was a great time. Very tiring but very good.

In case you were wondering how I cope with waking up everyday at 4 am and going through the morning sounding cheery? Well let me tell you. For those of you that wonder, it's really hard. I mean i have found myself to have a shorter temper, i get cranky, i get blur and i get slow easier these days. I doubt it's the age thing. It's just really hard to get your sleeping patterns down and stuff.

A normal day for us would be gettig in here by 5 - 5.30 am. Do the show in the happiest way we can even though some days are harder than others. ANd trust me it's really hard to be witty when you rbrain is still making it's way to the studios. Once we are done we head into the production studios to prepare tid bits that run through the day on the station.

Then it's off to the bosses room to start preparing for the next days show. Which is really hard to do sometimes, especially when your brains are pretty much friend and all you want to do is stop thinking and just fall to sleep.

So in a nutshell, thats a typical morning for Ika, Serena C and Pietro in the mornings on MIXfm

Random joke

Since i have no time to blog these last few days i thought i would post something funny

This letter was recently sent by Tesco's Head Office to a customer in

Oxford :

Dear Mrs. Murray,

While we thank you for your valued custom and use of the Tesco
Loyalty Card, the Manager of our store in Banbury is considering banning you
and your family from shopping with us, unless your husband stops his

Below is a list of offences over the past few months all verified by
our surveillance cameras:

1. June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in
people's trolleys when they weren't looking.

2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at
5-minute intervals.

3. July 7: Made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to
feminine products aisle.

4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official
tone, "Code 3" in housewares..... and watched what happened.

5. August 14: Moved a 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area.

6. September 15: Set up a tent in the outdoor clothing department and
told shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring sausages and a
gas stove.

7. September 23: When the Deputy Manager asked if she could help him,
he began to cry and asked, "Why can't you people just leave me alone?"

8. October 4: Looked right into the security camera; used it as a
mirror, picked his nose, and ate it.

9. November 10: While appearing to be choosing kitchen knives in the
Housewares aisle asked an assistant if he knew where the
antidepressants were.

10. December 3: Darted around the store suspiciously, loudly humming
the "Mission Impossible" theme.

11. December 6: In the kitchenware aisle, practised the "Madonna
look" using different size funnels.

12. December 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed,
yelled "PICK ME!" "PICK ME!"

13. December 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker,
assumed the foetal position and screamed "NO! NO! It's those voices

And; last, but not least:

14. December 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited a
while; then yelled, very loudly, "There is no toilet paper in here."

Yours sincerely,

Charles Brown

Store Manager
