Fly FM held their 3rd anniversary birthday bash at Central Park, 1Utama this year. They also held their 2nd anniversary at the same venue last year (of which I attended as well). They were nice enough to provide me with some media passes, allowing me to venture around all areas around the stage and the VIP area as well.

This event is also sponsored by Magnum, and there were those blow up bangers which had Magnum branding on them as well. Security this year was also helped out by

Free Love’s new album launch was held at Cloth & Clef (Changkat Bukit Bintang) on the 9th of November 2008.

The launch was supposed to start at 3pm but it was raining heavily at that time so I could not make it over. By the time I reached the venue, it was already 5pm and I missed Couple‘s performance. The organisers gave me a free Free Love album as part of the media pack, so I will be reviewing the album real soon (I was listening to it in my car for over a week already). Although it wasn’t packed inside, the attendance was pretty good.

Helmet Air Brush

Posted by kumbang. Automotive

Recently I have been looking for a place to airbrush my Helmet and a few other items on my “things-to-get-done” list. Since I got a bike, I’m now categorized as another one of those KL Mat-rempits. So to blend in I popped by a few shops listed in www.msportbike.com. I started with the famous Mecinda Racing in Pertama Complex to get myself Rempit-ized.

So my plan was to get an airbrush of Venom done on it for starters. Got me self this design that i like off the net.

Sadly they quoted that to get this done would cost about RM700. Heck that’s why rempits don’t airbrush their helmets.

Since I’ve been assigned to a Project in Malacca for 3 months I tried to see if I could get my helmet done a little cheaper there. So i dropped by the famous EVERPLOT in Mahkota Parade. Showed them the pic and suprisingly they gave me a freaking cheap quote costing RM200. Heck so i sent it in since it was dirt cheap.

Here’s a few pictures of how it turned out.
