Live Stage


I guess I am running off abit from my blog besides food but I really really really must blog about this awesome live stage performance. ROCKCAPPELLA by FORK. At first when we wanted to go watch the show, every one is skeptical, even me by asking who are they. Some of my friends also have a thought that aiya, singing live just pop in and enjoy then.

As they are out from the stage performing their first songs all of us thought that its very normal as they are hitting off with old songs. Right after the first song one of the performer told us that what we heard just now is all live and without any support of music instruments and sound effect. Then it had made my jaw drop with those awesome base and background music.

Later he explained that, 4 of them, Mia Hafrén and Jonte Ramsten, former police cadet Kasper Ramström and vocalist Anna Asunta have combine talent to make the whole group work as they have been working together for 15 years and performing world wide. Fresh from Finland and flying all the way to Malaysia to do their first ever stage performance with all of them have talent to sing, beat boxing and its not just only ordinary Rockcappella,as they are more than that.

A series of combination with Rock music, contemporary cover and humorous stand-up comedy that just blast us off and make our night a blast.

Staging might be small as I went to Google and check their other performance, and definitely PJLA Theater with the lighting and sound effect had made the whole performance to another level.

This is one of the most funny part that he came out with fake  rock long hair. . .

I am really amaze with this guy, as most of the heavy base and tune are coming out from him by beatboxing. In my thought, oh my.. now I have seen another great beatboxer and what willl happen to our local scene beat boxer.

Genre: Hokkien Comedy


Genre: Hokkien Comedy

Last weekend, when I was flliping through newspaper on Friday our local stage play defiantly caught my attention very much as this is the first time a live stage play in Hokkien language and it’s a COMEDY and I thought its worth to give our local scene a chance and persuading hard on my friend to follow me to this play by paying RM35 for this show also. When we reach the place, we were quite suprise is its 90% full. . .

Mark Beau de Silva presents his first full Hokkien play set in Kulim, Kedah, about 2 young boys; Tuah Thou(Big Head) and Huan Chu Thou(Potato Head) and their adventures in front of their mother’s rock garden(taman batu). They want to make a replica of Singapore because their rich Aunty Sien from Singapore is coming back and they want her to feel at home. So, using rocks, dead plants and other dead things, the boys copy the giant statues of flowers and birds that are erected by the gomen at the Penang Community Garden. Their mother; Mama, played by Wei Jun in high heels and shoulder pads is not very happy with this because she thinks the children are more excited over her sister’s coming than her cooking and discipline. She too has a plan of her own, and she enlists the help of her neighborhood sweetheart; Ah Huat, the 4-ekor man(4-D).

As the 2 children and the 2 adults fantasize and agonize the coming of the elusive Aunty Sien, they forget, the train is already coming…Aunty Sien might actually be knocking at the door any moment and the house is still like s***! Who is this woman standing in the shadow by the door. Is Aunty Sien really like that? Big Head and Potato Head is a fast paced comedy with a heart, but a very prickly one. It is created, and acted by Hokkiens! (by VisionKL)

Overall for a show of 75 minutes, on beginning of the show was quite funny and it gets boring after like after 20 minutes and my friend nearly fall asleep, then the flow of the play is very wrong, suddenly filled with anger by throwing bottles every around, smacking on the kid and the role of that mother destroy the scene or I would say not a suitable character to add in, even worst is that their Auntie Sien is back from Sg make the whole play dramatic (which I thought it is suppose to be a COMEDY?) if the play did not filled with good act from Potato Head me and my friend would just leave. The worst part is the ending. Suddenly end like that, and me and my friend were puzzled as the bow to us crowd and wave bye bye. Not to say the suck but there needs a lot of improvement in the flow of the live play especially on comedy.

Hope they improve on their next play.

About 2 months ago when I saw Nanta Cooking show, I was quite interested in it and tweet about it. Then Andrew saw my tweet and we talked about it and he mention that its a show highly recommended and worth watching as he watch it in Korea. The following day, we instantly buy the ticket while still enjoying early birds discount 20% and this would be one of the best seating stage performances ever for RM110 and I am seated 5th row from the front in the middle seating.



I would say this is one of the best stage performance that I have seen so far in Malaysia which is absolutely entertaining, hilarious that those guys makes us laugh till nearly fall onto the floor. .  The flow of the whole show is very good and one of the best thing is that, this is also the first time a stage play without INTERVAL. . Well, worth all the money and glad that Andrew recommend this to us with Ester watching along too. If you guys do go to Korea, remember to catch this live stage performance.

NANTA Cookin’ is an energetic non-verbal comic musical performance combining the traditional Korean percussion performance Samulnori, vigorous acrobatic movements and drama. The actors do not speak: they communicate using body movements, facial expressions and a series of sounds made from whizzing knives and other kitchen utensils. NANTA Cookin’ promises to be a feast for the senses.

NANTA Cookin’ made its first performance in Korea in October 1997. It made its international debut in 1999 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and received an award for best performance. Since then, there has been no looking back for NANTACookin’. Its world tour had taken it to UK, Germany, Austria, Italy, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, the Netherlands, and many more. In March 2004, NANTA Cookin’ made its way to New York and had a successful one-and-half year run at Broadway, making it the first Asian show to open its own off-Broadway theatre.


In a kitchen, three Chefs (Head Chef, Sexy Chef and Hot Sauce) are preparing to cook for the day when their ill-natured Manager dropped a bombshell: cook for an unplanned wedding banquet which must be ready by 6pm AND teach his young and bumbling Nephew how to cook.

What unfolds in next 90 minutes is an amazing display of story-telling of the three Chefs (with the Nephew getting in the way) racing against time to prepare for the banquet. Things that can go wrong will go wrong and the Chefs (and the Nephew) have to put things right for the Banquet. They slice through the air (using sharp knives), beat chopping boards while rhythmically cutting up vegetables and perform impossible acrobatic manoeuvres. (source Ticketpro.com.my)
