SGAM Treasure Hunt to Cameron Highlands, 11-12.12.2010

I had to sleep early on my birthday night because my colleagues & I represented my company to participate a treasure hunt to Cameron Highlands on the next day which was organized by Share Guide Association Malaysia. This was my first time to join a treasure hunt event.

I was the driver and needed to fetch 3 colleagues from my office to KL Bird Park for gathering. Therefore, I got out from my house about 6am. We reached KL Bird Park quite early and other contestants hadn't reached yet.


A staff from the event organizer helped us to take this photo while waiting for other people to reach.

The treasure hunt ended at Bidor after we submitted all our answers and items. We took a light meal in Bidor. After the lunch, we drove up to Cameron from Simpang Pulai direction. However, we were stuck in the jam along the way up to Brinchang for almost two hours before we reached hotel at 6.15pm.


The view of our hotel room, clean and tidy.


We had buffet style of dinner & breakfast at this hotel cafeteria. The winners of the treasure hunt were announced during our dinner time.


Our hotel, Century Pines Resort is located at Tanah Rata.





The driveway approach to the hotel reception entrance is big and spacious with ample parking space. We took some photos near car park before we departed to go back KL.





Our group photo, but the cameraman had to sacrifice himself to help us get a good shot of picture.











Along our way back to Kuala Lumpur, we stopped by at a bee farm for a short visit.


Visiting an apiary can be quite an educational experience as one can find out more about the life cycle of bees and how the honey is extracted from the beehive and health benefits of honey.

Company trip to Club Med, 4-6.12.2010


We were waiting for the bus to arrive in the restaurant near my office. My company hired 2 buses to send us to destination.




The resort rooms are well equipped, each room is furnished with 2 single beds, a bed-side-table with lamp, 1 bathroom and 1 toilet, fridge, TV, air-condition and other basic facilities. Each room also feature telephone and scurity box as well as towels, soap and sampoo in the bathroom.

關淑怡遊車河保持熱情 04.11.2010

關淑怡遊車河保持熱情

無線娛樂新聞台節目《系Friend至講》最後一集,主持人Mini請來關淑怡(Shirley)作嘉賓。再戰樂壇的Shirley表示現時心態和歌曲路線上都改變了,鬥心不再,但唱歌的熱情卻倍增。她指歌唱事業中,遊車河是她的獨門秘方,除了可紓壓外,每當看到新事物,總會給予新的音樂靈感,讓歌唱熱情永不「滑牙」,更享受踏上舞臺唱歌的那一刻。關淑怡都讚揚新一代的歌手對音樂的熱情。

坦言對靚仔無感覺

談到感情事,Shirley表示不抗拒拍拖,但亦不著急,她笑指自己可能在娛樂圈太久,對靚仔已無感覺。反而,她希望能找到一位與她思維相近,能交心的圈外伴侶。節目中,她們更相約了與Shirley合作無間的著名音樂總監Terry Chan,回味大家初期合作的趣事。Terry大爆Shirley在一次慈善音樂會中因嗓子欠佳,突然要求轉調,嚇到他要即席降調,驚險非常。Terry更戲言與Shirley合作必須預備八個調子,以備她隨時轉調的可能。Mini為了表揚關淑怡的天籟之音,故與Terry即席寫了一首名為《劍》的歌曲予Shirley,意思是她的聲線像劍一樣,揮灑自如。





【明報專訊】關淑怡 接受無線娛樂新聞台《係Friend至講》節目訪問,坦言不抗拒拍拖,只是她毫不著急,還笑言可能在娛樂圈太久,對靚仔沒有感覺,反而想找到一個與她思維相近,能交心的圈外伴侶。

關淑怡近年復出樂壇,雖然鬥心不再,但對歌唱熱情不減。她說遊車河是她的獨門秘方,可以紓壓及透過看到的新事物,給她新的音樂靈感,令歌唱熱情永不退減,享受在舞台唱歌的一刻。她讚揚新一代歌手對音樂的熱情,期待自己能把舊歌稍作修飾,以獨有的風格,把當年的音樂文化與他們分享。

關淑怡想搵圈外男交心 04.11.2010

[蘋果日報]

關淑怡深居簡出,早前接受無綫娛樂新聞台節目訪問,自爆鍾意遊車河,因為喺車程中可以見到唔同嘅新事物,引發佢嘅音樂靈感。講完音樂講感情,佢話唔抗拒拍拖,只係自己唔心急,佢又話自己可能喺娛樂圈太耐,見慣靚仔,所以唔會特別要求伴侶靚仔,反而想搵個同佢思維相近,可以交心嘅圈外人喎。

16.10.2010 Part 2 - Orchid Park, KL

After the lunch, my friend and I plan to have a short photo shooting session. It was a hot sunny day and we reached Orchid Park, Kuala Lumpur about 2.30pm. Taking photos under the sun was not a good experience for myself and I did sweat a lot.

It was my first time to be there after staying in KL for 10 years. KL Bird Park is quite near to Orchid Park too. However, we didn't make a visit to bird park. After the visit, I drove home and took a nap as usual for every weekend.



















16.10.2010 Part 1

Today my company held its' sport event at The Club, Bandar Utama. This time, I decided to play table tennis with my colleagues. It's been a long time since I play table tennis in primary school. I reached there at 9am and started to play it with colleagues while other colleagues enjoy playing futsal, gym, badminton, swimming, etc. I left at 11.15am because had a lunch appointment with friend.



I took a quick shower after I reached home, and then went to fetch my friend at his house. We were heading to Oriental Pavilion restaurant which is located at Jaya33, Section 14. My friend bought me a dim-sum lunch there. He hold a birthday discount voucher for RM50, in the end, he just paid RM19.90 on top of the total bill.

闗淑怡.如詩的歌 17.10.2010

打開娛樂﹕關淑怡,如詩的歌

【明報專訊】近年,澳門威尼斯人請了不少中外知名的歌手表演,實在是好點子。香港人愛玩、愛聽演唱會,過澳門吃過夠,聽歌賭錢住上一晚也就是周末好節目。每場的收入不知能否抵消成本,但如意算盤是打響了,聽眾成千上萬,周邊的收入不容小覷。

能叫我頻撲坐船過大海聽歌的有兩位,一是林憶蓮,另一位就是關淑怡了。

9 號晚,Shirley開了一場《One Starry Night——An Evening with Shirley Kwan》演唱會。梳覑一頭型格短髮的她,由《幻影》開始,獻唱多首悅耳的、別人的金曲。那全是她的個人喜愛,包括《情人》、《這是愛》、《藍月亮》、 《明知故犯》等。最感動我的是《失樂園》(草蜢原唱),由電子結他伴覑她柔美的歌聲,如泣如訴,一字一詞震盪心靈,像06年《關於我 關淑怡演唱會》中的《明年今日》一樣,她給歌曲賦與新的生命,成為獨一無二的「Shirley's version」。

換過單袖上衣及熱 褲皮靴,關淑怡接連唱出一串快歌,新歌《天規》、大熱的《叛逆漢子》、《Dela》、《午夜狂奔》都有了。這部分有點瑕疵﹕音樂蓋過她的歌 聲,Shirley也忘記部分歌詞,情形雖沒08年《Unexpected關淑怡演唱會》般嚴重,但我認為她應該可以唱得更好的。

唱出虛幻出塵的意境

壓 軸是首本名曲——《假的戀愛》、《一首獨唱的歌》、《繾綣星光下》,當然少不了《難得有情人》(為何每次都唱這些大路歌?Shirley的聽眾應該容得下 更多冷門歌的)。當唱《地盡頭》時,她把短髮熨貼梳一邊,一襲黑色緞子墊膊高釵長裙,讓玲瓏身段在超貼身的剪裁下,展現出若隱若現的性感(Shirley 讀時裝設計出身,品味不俗)。林夕的詞襯上她如詩般的嗓音,絕對是一次優美的演繹。關淑怡唱的往往是一種意境,她是歌曲的領航員,能帶領你的耳朵到天際, 飄落到虛幻出塵的境界。

以為出道超過二十年的歌手都「韌晒皮」嗎?當唱至《人生可有知己》時,Shirley感觸落淚了。她哭得很好看,無論外表如何前衛,淚水在眼眶流轉就是楚楚動人。感性的伊,和年前的國語歌一樣,其實外冷內熱,十足一團《冷火》。

關淑怡在樂壇多次去了又來,喜歡她的人,也要「抵得」她飄忽的性格。傳媒愛追蹤她的私生活,又說這次演唱會她和男dancer如何火辣跳舞云云,這些報道其實十分無謂,讀來也多餘。

這幾年,香港樂壇已失去太多的舞台王者,Shirley,你偶爾「潛水」不打緊,千萬不要消失,愛聽愛看你的人還是會在默默守候的。

張錦滿專欄:關淑怡在澳門再戰一場 14.10.2010

[亞洲時報]

關淑怡兩年前在香港紅館舉行演唱會,難得她不捨不棄,在這2010年10月於澳門金光綜藝館再戰一場。有戰未為輸,任何人可以站起來再鬥,都是戰士,就算不一定是勝利者。事實上,人生不敗便已是勝利。她今回在唱到“人生可有知己”的最後幾句:“……唯有盡本份,哪管路彎風狂嘯,有你共我一起闖,心已樂極了,人生路有知心一起共勉……”關淑怡便開始唱不下去了,要等那突然湧上喉頭的心結鬆一鬆,停了好一會,她才可以繼續唱完最後的一句:“伴我一起闖,不再寂寞--了。”

她又唱王菲的《我願意》。上一次她在香港紅館演唱會唱同一首歌,雖同是感情迴盪,但也只需要壓一壓氣,便可忍住激烈情緒,把最後那一個“了”字呼出來。隔了兩年,這一次她站在澳門威尼斯人金光綜藝館的舞台,感觸似乎是更深。有報道說她落淚是因為入場率欠佳,但這是半杯水的道理,我可感受到她看見有心人為她站起來,並揮動螢光棒與螢光牌。她唱到“……唯獨是你,你待我真以心,相處共對以真,你令我積極繼續前行……”,流出的淚水絕對自然,是的,需要經過年月的洗禮,那種味道才慢慢變得實在,這一首歌,又醇了一點。

有報道登出一張空位甚多的照片,說知音者稀,然而我人在現場,也曾環目四顧,認為雖然座位沒有填滿,但也沒怎般冷清。該張照片是甚麼時候拍的?是否在開始進場、觀眾還沒有全進來時?關淑怡有哭的道理。為甚麼有些人心腸不可以好一點呢?

在傷感歌曲之後,還要再推一陣高潮,把壓箱的作品演出來。《難得有情人》 之後有《繾綣星光下》,但都未是Encore之前的壓軸。演唱會最關鍵時間,她唱的竟是別人的歌,是否沒有足夠的膽量與信心呢?她不挑戰自己。她選唱王菲的《我願意》,前奏一響起,我便閉起眼來,焚一炷心香,預備接受穿透靈魂的感動。關淑怡以她的氣腔,其實要表達其中的空靈與深情,可說是勝任如魚得水的,而她這一次演繹,應該算是不失禮,這已夠厲害,因為她可與最佳演繹者相比。

除了挑別人的歌來壓軸,她在開場時就連唱了八首別人的歌,在Encore時她又唱多了兩首,按比例,別人的歌幾乎佔了她整個演唱會的一半。關淑怡自己並非不夠歌,她只是想與喜歡她的歌迷分享她的喜愛,譬如她近期唱的《鑽禧》,我便沒法聽到了。

她喜愛唱別人的甚麼歌呢?我只記住其中的廣東歌,包括譚詠麟的《幻影》、BEYOND的《情人》、許美靜的《明知故犯》、泰迪羅賓的《這是愛》、草蜢的《失樂園》、李克勤的《藍月亮》、梅豔芳的《夢伴》,以及Encore時段的最後一首--郭富城的《我為何讓你走》。她在這次演唱會中唱的《失樂園》與《我為何讓你走》很出色,經她楚楚動人的歌聲詮釋,就像在《走佬俏公主》中的安妮夏菲維,由一個普通人忽然變作金枝玉葉,頓時華麗起來,而她唱《明知故犯》,也把許美靜的音色、腔調變亮了。她有幾首歌,值得找來重聽。

聽關淑怡,要有安靜的心,所以她唱快歌那一環節,我就不說了。
