I just came back from Kepala Batas, Penang last Thursday. I took my Bayang kulit boys to the Dewan Millinium, Kepala Batas for their first show outside KMK. After all the "hustle bustle" caused by the BOSS, i finally managed to take my boys to go to KMPP early.Unfortunately, we had no choice but to start practising only after the night event at the hall. So, we started our first practice without the main character at 11.30. Then, we went to the food stall and had supper. But, what a supper! It's like they did'nt have any dinner for along time...And i arrived at the hotel in SP nearly 2 am.
The next day we're supposed to have a rehearsal at 10 am but the committee said it's only about placing. Before that Ina and I had to go to SP bus station to fetch Madi, the boxer. It's a real long story...But whatever they called it (rehearsal), its chaotic and a bit unorganized and i got a bit pissed off with Amar. He's not being helpful at all. But, of course, with God's help, we managed to overcome the problem breezely..
Oh yes, my boys, they were very simple, way too simple if compared with other groups. Everyone else were wearing uniformed clothes/t.shirt but my boys... wore colourful t.shirts. some of them even had toilet slippers on their feet! But that is not a problem to me. As long as they behaved well and cause no problem, it's ok with me.
The time we've been waiting for had come..
Bukhari kept on going in and out from the toilet. He felt like having a fever, he said.The other boys looked relax, but some of them were not.
The boys were really something and I'm really proud of them! They were awesome! They've put up a real good show and got the loudest applaud from the audience. I was really proud of them. Despite a few minor flaws, they've put the best performance and audience were laughing all the way through, from the beginning until the end.
I can see the sign of relief after the show but I know they were happy I promise to myself that after this I will do more for them like providing them with t.shirts etc..etc..
See you again boys, in the next show!
Till we meet again.
