Deathly tune from a brightly coloured mushroom

Russula, a genus where some 750 worldwide species of mycorrhizal mushrooms compose of, are typically common, fairly large, and brightly coloured. I guess that’s why my brother Hanafiah (whom recently held his wedding reception) and band member named their band to a mushroom. I think it’s a poisonous mushroom.

 

Have not been into a jamming studio for quite some time now, if I remember correctly, the last time I was in a studio was in 2002. I remember it because my ex colleague and her husband force me to sing Cinta by Flop Poppy, and I didn’t play any instrument. The last time I played any instrument was in 2000. I remember this because I was introduced to a middle aged bass player from a well know local band (KK based band, can’t remember the name), who are interested to form a female fronted band. Since my sister Nadiah and I love to listen to No Doubt, so we thought why not? But it didn’t last because I was thinking of my carrier as an engineer at that time. We only jammed twice I think.

 
This time around, I just want to get the feeling of being in a studio, listening to loud devilish sound they called ROCK! The sound of a guitar has a calming effect on me, especially acoustic guitar. I haven’t been playing my guitar for quite some time now, just a few riffs from my favourite song, and even if I can play, my brother was playing Pantera, didn’t know any of their song. So I do what I do best, photographing. My brother Rizal just played standard chord, following whatever the bassist code is. I wonder if we can revive Blind Element or EDM? It’s the name of our band, comprises myself on lead, Rizal on rhythm, Zul on bass and Hanafiah on drum. I think Hanafiah is out, he has Russula now. Maybe a new one, probably myself on lead, Rizal on rhythm, Nadiah on bass and we don’t have a drummer hehehe. Just a thought, a mere thought. *sigh*

The Geek

A so called geek who resides at North Borneo, in a not so little city anymore, formerly known as Api-Api to the locals, Jesselton to the colonialist. This geek is a Civil Engineer by profession, who have lots of ideas popping up while traveling, who will write whatever popped up in his mind and hopping the reader would not be so judgmental toward his writings. This geek is also a computer & internet junkie who love outdoor, which is pretty much contradicting to each other doesn’t it? This geek is good at almost everything but a master of none (read about this somewhere). People may perceive him as a very quiet, describe as phlegmatic person, yet he is quite a chatterbox to those whom he is really close or comfortable with. This geek thinks anime chicks are way cooler than a real chick hence why he also likes to watch it (not the chicks, but the anime). Not to be mistaken as watching a cartoon, anime to this geek and to most of anime follower are animation that are created and produce by the Japanese.
