Anugerah Juara Lagu

Tahniah kepada lagu gubahan Pete Teo dan nyanyian Aizat, “Pergi”, yang dinobatkan sebagai juara Anugerah Juara Lagu yang ke-24. Tapi aku berpendapat yang lagu ini menang kerana ramai yang mahu mengenang jasa pengarah Allahyarham Yasmin Ahmad yang telah pergi meninggalkan dunia filem buat selamanya pada Julai tahun lalu. Lagu ini yang diubah ke versi melayu oleh Amran Omar adalah soundtrack dari filem “Talentime” yang bertajuk “I Go“. Aizat juga memenangi anugerah Persembahan Terbaik.

Yuna yang suara dan lagunya mirip Zee Avi memenangi tempat kedua menerusi lagu “Dan Sebenarnya”.

Tempat ketiga dimenangi oleh Superman yang menghidap penyakit Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), Faizal Tahir, dengan lagu “Bencinta”.

Anugerah Vokal Terbaik dirampas oleh Black (Mentor) yang mendendangkan lagu “Aku Rindu Sayang Kamu”.

Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza membuat persembahan bersama Azlan The Typewriter, mantan vokalis Meet Uncle Hussien menerusi lagu “Lagu Untuk Mu”, juara AJL ke-23. Selamat ulang tahun yang ke-31 Siti Nurhaliza!

Bunkface dengan lagu “Situasi”.

Tahun ini AJL kembali ke format asalnya dengan ketiadaan kategori Etnik Kreatif, Pop Rock dan Balada.

Ann Kok dating Dai Yang Tian

Ann Kok, finalist in Star Search Singapore 1993, was reportedly dating hot rising star 25-year-old Dai Yang Tian. Ann Kok, born on 11 January 1973, was said frequently caught holding hands in public, and even recently, started living under the same roof.

Ann Kok said she is not opposed to dating younger men, as long as the feeling is right.

Bobby Tonelli and Joanne Peh

Joanne Peh, Miss Elegant and Miss Personality in Miss Singapore Universe 2002, rumours that she was involved in a relationship with a Caucasian man, Bobby Tonelli (Robert Tonelli Jr.). Bobby was in the Suria program “Atas Heights” and now can be seen in the highly rated Channel 8 Drama The Little Nyonya.

She was also said of receiving breast implants.

Google Nexus One

Google announced the Nexus One, a phone designed and built by HTC. I was thinking of buying the Apple iPhone 3GS, but since that a lot of people are using the iPhone, why not I try this new Android 2.1 phone?

For now, I can buy it online through their online store that cost US$529.00 without the shipping cost. But i guess StarHub, SingTel and MobileOne will be bringing in the handset to their retail channels with a better subsidized price plans soon.

What rocks this phone compared to the iPhone 3GS are the 5 megapixel camera (iPhone 3meg), 11.5 millimeters thick (iPhone 12.3mm), 130 grams (iPhone 135g), Qualcomm 1 GHz processor (iPhone 833 MHz underclocked to 600 MHz), 512MB of RAM and 512MB of ROM (iPhone 256 MB eDRAM and the 3.7-inch panel is an AMOLED display with an 800 x 480-pixel resolution (iPhone 320 × 480 px, 3.5 in).
