Apa maksud merentes …
Sesaje je kan!!
Some time has lapsed since lagu nie siap ..I would never had imagined that I will have my own music video, done by Moi’ lagi ..after waiting and waiting for the big money to come in. Apa yg kita plan, kadang2 go astray, all hay wire tapi, the dream lives on! Gittew ..
The song is about everlasting love, and a promise to love unconditionally, where this time, the hero or heroin, states that, it’s not enough that only one side gives all, the other party must too. Lebih kurang mcm tue la agaknya ..
The music video opens up with paper origami of some sort of boats. I know, lepas a few minutes, memang kapal2 tue karam di lautan swimming pool. Walaupun ..
Walaupun cantik je, dihiasi bebunga kemboja. Yang I picked dari yg jatuh ke rumput. Satu, I rasa I lompat and snatched dari hujung dahan, yg just a bit beyond my reach.
Kemboja nie some signify or associate with cemetery bagi yg malay la kan ..entah kenapa kan ..Katenya, dari blog dari seberang, pokok kemboja nie seakan mistis yg mcm menghalau elemen negatif ..Allah swt shj yg Maha Mengetahui ..bukan salah pokok kemboja tau ..kalau orang went overboard ..
Tapi di Bali, bunga kemboja diguna meluas dan sebenarnya, menurut penulisan blog dari seberang, ia dieksport ke merata dunia kerana khasiatnya yg mempunyai emolien dan vitamin E dll. Getah pokok kemboja juga katenya boleh menghilangkan kutil dan bahan antibiotik semula jadi, tapi awas katenya, jgn masuk mata ..malah bagus utk sakit gigi, atau gigi berlubang! Wah, yg part gigi tue, kalau dah mati kutu kacip cengkih boleh try yg nie plak!
Nak cuba buat teh bunga kemboja lah pulak, iya ke boleh nie ..tak pasal2 ..katenya boleh ..ish3 ..ragu and was was pulak. Bunga kekwa kuning adalah kan!
Bunga Kemboja memang cantik. Lebih2 lagi yg tang jenis renek2, yg I saw at some expo pertanian ..mcm ros pun ada. Not the usual variety. Kalau yg merah tue, cantik sangat, berkelopak, mcm ros lah senang nak cakap!
Making the Selalu video was about me conquering my fear of appearing in front of the video. I know, I know. In this age of Brand Me, being a signer songwriter who wants to share his/her music. one cannot really run away completely and altogether from showing the face to the public. I was not doing it for some time because I am, hard to believe it maybe, a bit tad shy/ Maybe it’s my looks. Mabe it’s the quality of the production, styling and many many more reasons.
But, a single needs a video. So, having bought the Go Pro like cam, I decided to finally to give it a try. So, sorry for the amateurish look of the video. Looking back, I could have done it better. But, I was, in a way, wanted it to finish fast too. Not just to get done with it, though most tempting, but I believe, my first video work, will not be my best. So, it’s okay. That’s what I tell myself.
Memori, was commissioned to a husband and wife videographer duo. It was my first time doing a video, and being the subject and all. With a paltry of a payment, to them, which they also did give their best, add to that, my own lack of direction ..it seems I’m more eager to show the masks and clothes ..than just being simple, and sing. I got caught up in it. Being embarassed of myself. Of wanting to shy away because I have a professional life to protect. Now that it has come to this point, I feel a sort of freedom. It’s not like what I’m doing is a crime. Singing is not a crime. Well, sue me for wanting to pursue my creative side. Well, don’t sue me, if anything, let’s talk first. Haha..
I wanted to tie ribbons kat dahan or ranting, tak jadi. And gantung cards with word Selalu on it, tue pun tak jadi.
