Xmas Borneo Bash 2007

A huge thank you to those who were there and the organizers for making the rave happen, this is Miri's first big rave. The line up for the night was Frequency K, Cbell J and X-statik, I reached there around 8:30pm which was pretty early for a rave. It was pretty empty since it was still early, slowly people are coming in. The rave started with frequency K warming the set with good electro, then the shufflers came and conquered the dance floor. The shufflers sort of intimidated the crowds to come forward to dance, but later more and more people came to the front. Since Celcom was one of the sponsors they had a lucky draw on that night, a lucky Santa dude won cash prizes.

The crowd were starting to dance to the music as soon as Cbell J started his session, it was pretty good of cbell to mix some commercial stuff together with some hard staff just to educate the people of Miri to trance and other good stuff. By the time x-statik's session starts, I notice some of the people are beginning to leave. (O_O???) x-statik was the main highlight of the night, I must say that his set was awesome and I really loved it. I notice that most of the shufflers are tired, but some of them continue to rock the dance floor. Later more and more people started to leave the place, it seems like Mirians are still not used to rave after all.

Overall I think that it was very good, especially the music and the big venue. Finally the indoor stadium has been utilized properly, let's hope more raves from Cabell enterprise. Once again kudos to the organizers. By the way, those who attended the rave on Monday.

Awesome rave. I can see a lot of people in your pictures..though, I must mention that I would rather spend my time in Miri than in Kuching. If you think Mirians are still not used to raves, you should see the so-called "rave" in Kuching. People don't dance, they SIT. O_O

It was embarassing I tell you..but stll, I stayed just for a while to show my love for Cbell J and X-Statik..they were the only reasons that I came and stayed.

do u use flash and didn't set the aperture when u take photos? just wondering, because i really want to see how's the lightings there. hehe. curious how they gonna set up the indoor stadium. or maybe the venue just dim everything and put on white lights?


the "shufflers doing their thing" looks like they walking in a circle. is it a mosh pit or something? hahaha. sorry i don't know anything about shuffle, i'm all about hardcore dancing (go youtube :p)

Take heart bro! Yes, indeed rave is still new in MYY but that's not the reason it was not highly accepted.

Logically, the next day was xmas and many had to get up early for church and family gath and such.

Some balik kampung to their long houses while the rest, were feeling under the weather what's with cough and flu virus flying aroun lately.

I fall into the later category :-)

It's a gud idea indeed to organize a rave party and kudos to the organizer for thinkin of one but due to the wrong timing, well...

Should've done it on New Yr's Eve wher there's no obligation much on the nex day to show a fresh face.

Words to the organizer -it's gud to do a market survey first and mass media coverage mths & mths before ~marketing strategy~

Cheers!

Fahrie: Glad that you stayed, sit downed the whole way? better go pub like that hehe

Uchu: about 800 i think

Uzair: of course you can't see the aperture! it's so dark that i had a hard time focusing although with flash and lowered shutter speed, still had a hard time. they're doing the crip walk or the running man as we shufflers call it

Balqiz: oh well, like what my friend would say, it can't be help hahaha

Rych: I love few of the songs too!
