Akhirnya we all kuar dinner, met abt 9pm --> CHAWAN @ Bangsar Village. Apa yg best kt situ? Nice place, cozy... rilex je.

American IDOL 2009

Kristopher Neil Allen (born June 21, 1985) is an American singer-songwriter from Conway, Arkansas and the winner of the 8 season of the reality television series American Idol.

Early life
Kris Allen was born in Jacksonville, Arkansas to Kimberly and Neil Allen. He has one younger brother named Daniel who is a student and cheerleading coach at the University of Central Arkansas. Allen attended Murrell Taylor Elementary School, Fuller Middle School and Mills University Studies High School, where he was active in the school's orchestra as a viola player and later went on to win a spot in his state's all-state orchestra. Along with the viola, Allen taught himself how to play the guitar at age 13, and is also proficient with the piano and the ukulele.

Allen is a Christian. He was a worship leader at New Life Church in Maumelle, Arkansas, as well as at the Chi Alpha campus ministry of the University of Central Arkansas, where he was a business major. He has done missionary work around the world, including in Burma, Mozambique, South Africa, Spain and Thailand. On September 26, 2008, he married longtime girlfriend Katy O'Connell Allen.

In 2007, he self-produced an album entitled Brand New Shoes with college friends and bandmates Michael Holmes (drums) and Chase Erwin (bass). Songs from the album began being widely distributed during his time on Idol.

American Idol Journey
Allen auditioned for the eighth season of American Idol in Louisville, Kentucky with his brother Daniel, who did not make it to Hollywood.
Throughout the competition, Allen received many compliments for his folk-inspired interpretations of modern pop songs. He played several instruments during his performances, including the acoustic guitar, the electric guitar, the keyboard, and the piano. His performance of "To Make You Feel My Love" as part of the Top 11 earned praise from the judges, with Simon Cowell commenting, "I am genuinely beginning to think you have a shot of doing well in this competition." On the Top 9 show, he performed his own arrangement of "Ain't No Sunshine" on a keyboard, with a few musicians on stage, which earned praise from the judges. Cowell lauded it as Allen's "best performance so far."

On the first Top 7 night, Allen chose to sing the Oscar-winning song from the indie film Once. While Randy Jackson described it as "pitchy from note one", Kara DioGuardi declared it "one of your best moments ever." Due to time constraints, Paula Abdul and Cowell did not comment, but on the following night's results show, Cowell stated "Kris, you were brilliant." On the second Top 7 show, Allen brought back the guitar for the fourth time and performed an original, acoustic version of "She Works Hard for the Money", complete with bongo drums and the band on stage. This earned praise from all four judges, with Abdul remarking "There aren’t many men who are willing to shop in the women’s department. You shopped and found a perfect fit." For his second Top 3 performance, Allen impressed the judges with an acoustic arrangement of Kanye West's "Heartless", prompting Jackson to state that he preferred it to West's original and The Fray's cover version. Cowell agreed and said, "I had written you out of the competition but that has changed after that performance."

After being voted into the Top 3, Allen returned home to Arkansas and his hometown to film the material for the next two American Idol episodes. Allen was greeted by a crowd estimated to be greater than 20,000. Allen performed concerts in Little Rock and Conway, playing many of his popular songs during the competition, including "Man in the Mirror", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Falling Slowly" and "She Works Hard for the Money" at the venues, as well as "Come Together" at the local Fox News studio. He accompanied all of these songs with his guitar. During the final show, he performed with Keith Urban, singing Urban's single "Kiss a Girl".

On May 20, 2009, Allen was declared the winner of the eighth season of American Idol, becoming the first married contestant to claim the title. Commentators labeled the win as an "upset" since runner-up Adam Lambert had received a significant amount of media attention throughout the season and was widely perceived to be the show's front-runner.

No Boundaries

Seconds hours so many days
You know what you want but how long can you wait
Every moment last forever if you feel you’ve lost your way
What if your chances are already gone
Started believing that I could be wrong
But you give me one good reason
to fight and never walk away

Coz hear I am - still holding on!

Every step you climb another mountain
Every breathe its harder to believe

You’ll make it through the pain (or through all your aches and pains)
Weather the hurricane
To get to that one thing

When you think the road is going nowhere
Just when you’ve almost gave up on your dreams
Then take it by the hand and show you that you can
There are no boundaries x2

I fought to the end to stand on the edge
What if today is as good it gets
Don’t know where the future’s headed
Nothings gonna bring me down

I’ve jumped every bridge and I’ve run every line
I’ve risked being saved but I always knew why
I always knew why

So hear I am still holding on
Every step you climb another mountain
Every breathe its harder to believe

You’ll make it through the pain
Weather the hurricane
To get to that one thing

When you think the road is going nowhere
Just when you’ve almost gave up on your dreams
Then take it by the hand and show you that you can

You can go higher
You can go deeper
There are no boundaries
Above and beneath you
Break every rule coz there’s nothing between you
and your dreams

Every step you climb another mountain
Every breathe its harder to believe

There are no boundaries
Every step you climb another mountain
Every breathe its harder to believe
You’ll make it through the pain
Weather the hurricane
There are no boundaries x3


No Boundaries is the 2009 winner’s single of season 8 of the reality television show American Idol 8.
It was co-written by American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi, along with Cathy Dennis and Mitch Allan. It will be the first single for winner Kris Allen, and was performed on May 19, 2009’s final performance show by Kris Allen, and by the show’s runner-up, Adam Lambert.


Kenapa perempuan suka minyak wangi? komen. aku pun salah sorang peminat setia parfume yg berjenama (sejak 10 thn dulu, mula2 keje dh jd collector botol parfume..huhu). Gucci = most favorite. i prefer to buy EDP rather than EDT (bau kuat sgt, ramai yg tk selesa). Tapi last friday, masa aku amik boss kt airport, berkenan pulak dgn haruman Mariah Carey & JLo. Tapi akhirnya aku amik JLo sbb: baunya lebih menarik & harumannya mcm gula2 (nyum..nyum), kotak n botol pun lebih daring..ala-ala JLo la katakan..hehe. Suka Banget!! Even ongkosnya enggak ada (almaklumla akhir bulan) aku gagahkan hati jugak beli parfume ni. Gara2 Magnifique (bday gift) dh nk abis n Gucci (EDT yg tk best, tp pakai jgk la.. Mike christmast gift).

Bad days in Kuantan

Monday pagi tiba2 Jeff sound me: "babe, pi Kuantan. Exam - 2 hari. Gerak skrg la.. ko bleh pi dgn kak izan" Hampeh btul. Call hotel, smua penuh. Last2 dpt Citiview (kompom tk besh!). Then kelam kabut gi bank & balik umah packing baju. I'm driving there since k.izan kena keracunan makanan kot dgn leha (penangan budu kelate..huhu). Nothing special @ Citiview Hotel. Better u all duduk kt Megaview (riverside, Kuantan), lagi besh. hmm..tkpela, as long as ada tmpt nk tdo drpd stay hotel ah tong, mampos!
Apa yg best kt Kuantan? Seafood @ Tanjung Lumpur -- mmg best giler~! sakan aku, k.izan n faiz (anak k.izan) makan kat Ana Seafood. Dgn angin sepoi2 bahasa dr pantai, smbil makan ketam sambal, kerapu 3 rasa, udang goreng tepung n sup cendawan.. slurrrp... sodap!!
Hari Rabu ptg bila keje selesai, aida hantar pi Shahputra. Jumpa la kakak kesayangan aku (zarida vogue). Hampeh ko kak.. dh kurus skrg!!! penangan Herbalife la tu. sorry babe, i tk makan herba2 n rumput2 ni..wakakakak! Yg penting maintain makan, exercise. Alhamdulillah aku sihat..insyaAllah. Amin.
Ptg rabu nk balik KL, tiba2 keta meragam la pulak. Trpaksa stay lagi satu malam - Shahzan Inn (brkfast best la jgk). Panggil NAZA servis towing keta, problem starter. Nk tak nak, trpaksa la letak keta kt bengkel OZEN. Kitaorg balik KL dgn Zurik. (nasib baik dia gi Trgannu, if not.. kami kena naik bas la... bosan).

Isam ni beriya2 nk amik ati aku skrg. After coklat, puding.. lps ni? hmm.. layankan lagi. Tapi hati ni -- tetap keras! tkmo kasi chance. Biar si luncai terjun dgn labu-labunya.. biarkan.. biarkan.

Where does my heart beat now [Celine Dion]

So much to believe in - We were lost in time
Everything I needed
I feel in your eyes
Always tought of keepin-
Your heart next to mine
But now that seems so far away
Don't know how love could leave
Without a trace
Where do silent hearts go?

Where does my heart beat now
Where is the sound
That only echoes through the night
Where does my heart beat now
I can't live without
Without feeling it inside
Where do all the lonely hearts go

Candle in the water - Drifting helplessly
Hiding from the thunder-
Come and rescue me
Driven by hunger -
Of the endless dream

I'm searching for the hand that I can hold
I'm reaching for the arms that let me know
Where do silent hearts go?

(repeat chorus)

Then one touch overcomes the silence
Love still survives
Two hearts needing one another
Give me wings to fly

(repeat chorus)

I've got someone to give my heart to
Feel it getting stronger and stronger
And stronger
And I feel inside

Hearts are made to last
Till the end of time

Belaian Jiwa

Seindah.. tiada lagi yang ku ingatkan
sayang kau hilang..
menanti.. biar sampai akhir hayatku di dunia ini..

Hati berbisik:
ada kalanya hati ini tak tenang bila diganggu dgn kenangan silam. tapi kalau ikut hati aku yg kejam ni, mmg la mampos aku tak layan lagi. Hmmm.. lelaki ni (isam), tk pernah jemu2 utk mendapatkan kasih sayang aku kembali. Entahlah.. biar dia yg berusaha banyak. dia nk kata aku takde hati ke, hati batu ke, hati ayam ke.. Biar dia belajar dari kesilapan dia sendiri. Bukannya aku jual mahal. Nnti dia takkan hargai betapa berharganya kasih sayang aku sebelum ni. Ingat senang2 ke dapat kat pasar malam. Hmm... layankan je la perangai dia. Lately ni pandai pulak cakap baik2, bual2 kt yahoo messenger - ala romantika di amour..huhu. aku nk tengok, brapa lama dia boleh tahan dgn perangai keras hati aku ni..

Perempuan ni nmpak lembut, tapi hati keras. Ada jgk perempuan yg kasar (mcm aku) tapi hati lembut.. not like sponge la.. mcm kayu sugi tu, nmpak lembut boleh gosok gigi. Tapi padahal, kayu.. keras jugak..hehee.. [aku kena belajar dgn karam singh walia la pasal peribahasa ni)

Yg penting.. aku hepi banget!! Dia mmg tk bleh lepaskan aku, sbb.. aku rasa dlm ramai2 perempuan yg dia kenal, aku yg slalu tkde masalah kot. dan aku pun tak pernah mendatangkan masalah utk dia. Sendiri mau pikir la betapa cool & understanding aku ni. Baru dia sedar agaknya.. 3 bulan hidup tanpa aku..hehe.. Last week i dpt coklat.. lepas ni tk tau la pulak apa. Layankan je la... jgn hipokrit, tunjuk muka garang & jual mahal lagi.. [kereknya aku..huhu]

Pesona Akademi Fantasia (AF) 7

Persembahan AF7 pada minggu ke 9 kali ni, aku cukup respek & suspek betul dgn Hafiz, budak Sabah ni. Last saturday dia nyanyi dgn penuh perasaan. Walaupun ada sedikit pitching lari, tapi.. aura dia memang best. Yg penting, aku pun sama2 nyanyi gak...haaha.. bengang je hsemate aku mlm tu. Dan --- ARIL dapat masuk semula, yeeeeeehaa (suka la jgk even aku tk prnah pun vote utk dia..hehe)
Lyric yg penuh bermakna utk mereka2 yg benar2 memahami...



I used to think that I could not go on
And life was nothing but an awful song
But now I know the meaning of true love
I'm leaning on the everlasting arms

If I can see it, then I can do it
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly

See I was on the verge of breaking down
Sometimes silence can seem so loud
There are miracles in life I must achieve
But first I know it starts inside of me, oh

If I can see it, then I can do it
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

[Repeat 1]

Hey, cuz I believe in me, oh

If I can see it, then I can be it
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

[Repeat 1]

Hey, if I just spread my wings
I can fly
I can fly
I can fly, hey
If I just spread my wings
I can fly

The Power Of Love

The whispers in the morning
Of lovers sleeping tight
Are rolling like thunder now
As I look in your eyes

I hold on to your body
And feel each move you make
Your voice is warm and tender
A love that I could not forsake..

(1st chorus)
cause I am your lady
And you are my man
Whenever you reach for me
I'll do all that I can

Lost is how I'm feeling
lying in your arms
When the world outsides too
Much to take
That all ends when I'm with you

Even though there may be times
It seems I'm far away
Never wonder where I am
cause I am always by your side

(repeat 1st chorus)

(2nd chorus)
We're heading for something
Somewhere I've never been
Sometimes I am frightened
But I'm ready to learn
Of the power of love

The sound of your heart beating
Made it clear
Suddenly the feeling that I can't go on
Is light years away..

[song by Celine Dion]

Back for good??

Hati & Perasaan:
Lately ni isam rajin call aku, i just answered it acuh tk acuh je (keras hati la kononnya..). But when i received his call ystrday, dia ajak aku keluar pulak. 'After isya' i will arrived there' katanya. Hmm.. aku layankan je, dh stand-by byk soalan utk dia ni, tk sabar nk jumpa pun yea..rasa mcm nk toreh2 muka dia dgn pisau. Tapi hati ni... sabarlah..
These are few questions yg aku sempat tanya dia:
Q1: y u wanna meet 2nite?
Answer: i miss u
Q2: u already dump me rite?
Answer: i want u back, i miss u
Others questions tk penting, kitaorg cuma bual2 biasa n boleh gelak2 lagi. Aku tk hipokrit, jika dia datang cara baik, aku layan baik la.. Tapi untuk menerima dia balik dlm hidup aku?? it tooks time... dalam hati ni tak ada lagi ruang utk dia. Biarlah Tuhan yg tentukan segalanya.. aku serah pada takdir.

Bila lagu "Power Of Love" by Celine Dion berkumandang dlm keta, tiba2 isam pegang tangan aku n cakap baik2 je.. Hmm.. muka nmpak ikhlas, tapi dlm hati dia tu, ntahla.. Aku malas betul nk layan perasaan hati yg geram, sakit, menyampah. Perlu ke aku beri peluang sekali lagi utk dia??? Ya Allah... sabarlah hati, berilah petunjuk...
