Had one the most amazing weekend over in Sunway at KL!
Was invited to catch the very hyped about MTV WORLD STAGE 2014 which was held at Sunway Lagoon, Surf beach.
So, backtrack a little, I had to fly over a day after the media side cause I had work in the afternoon.
Flew down to KL and cabbed over to Sunway. I haven't been to Sunway in a long long time and damn, I was super excited ok?! But then again, I have had bad experiences over at Sunway and it has to do with freakin HAIR. gross.
The moment I reach Sunway, I met up with Ck who graciously shared her room with me!
Yay to saving money:) THANK YOU CK!!
Changed and got ready for World Stage!
Got my tickets and media pass and BAM, WE'RE ALL SET!
all geared up!
This might just be one of the most useful item they provided.
So, apparently they had to drain all the pool water from the surfing beach to setup a stage there and I must say, the before and after transformation is super different!
It literally felt as though the stage was a permanent display! haha.
Back for the sixth year running, this year’s music line-up featured 4 international artistes of different genres, cultures and music from around the world – Thaitanium, Boys Republic, Yuna, and international hip hop rapper B.o.B, to an audience of over 10,000 fans.
We were given access to the VIP sector but decided to crash into the public sector just cause the crowd is more hyped and energetic. I swear, I media side was a little dull. No dancing no nothing:(
Thai-American hip hop group Thaitanium, comprising the five sons of Siam – Khan, Way, Day, Big Calo, and Tony B, opened the night with a medley of tracks! They were surprisingly good. Their beats, their lyrics and stage presence, just WOW.
NEW FAN HERE!
Universal Music Group International’s first K-pop idol group, Boys Republic, who made their MTV World Stage debut opening with their hit, “You Are Special”.
Not a Korean Fan here but hey, the girls in the crowd went crazy and I even saw a couple of fangirls mouthing the lyrics to their songs. It must mean they are going on the right path huh?
I was most hyped about Malaysian Homegrown international singer-songwriter, Yuna as she sangthrough “Mountains” and “Lelaki"! Her voice is just oh-so-amazing and I especially love when she sang malay songs. It felt so authentic!
This year's headliner was non other than B.O.B! Having had so much success in his music career, we were expecting nothing short of a GREAT, MIND-BLOWING performance and true enough, he did! Belting out songs like "Airplanes", "Price Tag" and even "billionaire", you cannot help but sing and dance to it!
He even got upclose and personal with the fans taking selfies and going beyond the barricades just to get closer.
MTV WORLD STAGE ENDED OFF WITH A BANG!
If you weren't able to attend the life concert, well, no worries!
