Pertandingan Ghazal Johor 2009

(photo credit of Hunaidi Ismail)

When: December 18 to 20, 2009
Where: Auditorium Sultan Iskandar RTM, Johor Bahru

The competition was organized by Yayasan Warisan Johor and has four categories: Kategori Ghazal Terbuka, Kategori Ghazal Sekolah Rendah Kebangsaan, Kategori Ghazal Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan and Kategori Ghazal Harapan Remaja.
The award ceremony was done by YAB Dato' Haji Abdul Ghani bin Othman, Menteri Besar Johor.

JOHO enjoyed performances by the Ghazal Harapan Remaja category the most. This was probably because we can relate to them more than from any other categories. One of the group in particular was very entertaining. They are Kumpulan Ghazal Sri Ledang. The members of the group according to the MC, were from a rock band before they fell in love with the music of ghazal.

JOHO hopes Yayasan Warisan Johor can organized more competition such as this. Keroncong anyone?

Malaysia Wind Orchestra Competition 2009

(photo credited to Azrafe Zaky)

When: December 6, 2009
Where: Level 3, Persada Johor, Johor Bahru

JOHO can tell that it was a big event just by looking at the sponsors (one of them is ESPN/StarSports) however we were kind of disappointed at the outcome of the event itself.

The event required an admission fee of RM10 which kind of unreasonable (this was the first time they charged us for wanting to support the competitors). After that we had to wait for almost 2 hours as we waited for the VIP to finish eating the banquet dinner. It was absurd.

The competition itself started at almost 10pm.

But lets not take the highlight away from the competitors. They were excellent and very entertaining. JOHO's personal favorite was the band from UPSI (Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris). Unfortunately they lost the competition to SDAR (Sekolah Datuk Abdul Razak).

Congratulations to the winner and JOHO hopes the organizer will do a better job next year :)

Teater Walinung Sari

First, thanks to JOHO for the invitation and congratulations.

I have always been a fan of theater so I did not miss the opportunity to watch Walinung Sari Theater which was held on December 5, 2009 at Auditorium Sultan Iskandar RTM, Johor Bahru. Being the JOHOrean that I am, I have to admit that it was hard to find showcases of theaters in Johor. If we want to see theaters, we have to travel all the way to KL for it.

For me personally as a fan of theater, Walinung Sari was amazing. I went with my mother (in her 50's) and my sisters (in their early 20's) who weren't into theather but they too were impressed. We felt the theater has life of it's own as it re-telling the history of the said beauty. In my opinion, the show should be extended and I'm sure it would be a hot topic for at least a week.

The story of Walinung Sari was mystical and has sense of culture and religious. It definitely has message that they want to convey to the audience. It would be good for the younger generation so they could learn something from it. The theater was not only fun but educational as well.

Walinung Sari does not required famous faces or big names to ensure it's success. The talent that they have were sufficient. They definitely blew the roof off with their passion and performances.

My point is, theater such as this will gains it audience in Johor even though we do not have 'Istana Budaya'. Even RTM is hosting plenty of such events. All that is need is effort.

Which kind of theater would be of little relevant if it can give such big impact to the audience. Which such dedication I am sure that the audience will gradually increased. They would even help promote the event.

Once again, congratulation and thank you JOHO for promoting the event. We need more of this kind of dedication in Johor.

And allow me to reiterate: Walinung Sari was amazing :)

Sypnopsis: The theater Walinung Sari tell us how Tok Damak continues to lift the spirits of pujangga and lagu rakyat, especially one of Walinung Sari to ensure that they will always exist in today's modern society despite being targeted by Tok Penghulu and his avid followers.

JOHO really enjoyed the Walinung Sari theater. There were several moments during the performances when we got goosebumps and apparently we were not the only one. Most of the audience experienced the same thing.

It just goes to show how well the casts of this theater performed and we applaud their passions and wish them the best of luck for the competition.

Plague of Happiness

This band originated from Pasir Gudang. They are one of the leading independent band in Johor and one of the well-known ska band in Malaysia.

Plague of Happiness consists of 7 members: Nas (guitar and vocalist), Ipin (bass and backing vocal), Atoi (trumpet), Azmal (tenor saxophone), Nausad (trombone), Arab (guitar) and Pozy (drum).

This band plays ska punk with more happy tune and for a twist, their attitude and music arrangements are pretty OUT THERE which can be enjoyed by everyone.


Laila consists of 6 young males from Johor Bahru. They were first known as Laila's Lounge and has received great exposure after one of their songs (Mawar Khayalan) was chosen as the main soundtrack for "KAMI the Movie" film.

However, they have undergone several changes in the line-up since their establishment 10 years ago. Some of the musicians that were part of the group are Bulat (bassist), Sham Daging and Just (drums), Ajeep (keyboards, Kluk Kluk Adventure) and David (guitarist, They Will Kill Us All).

Year 2008 can be considered as a pear year for Laila's Lounge when they got involved with independent gigs as well as "KAMI the Gig" concert series. During that time, they agreed to use Wandi (Novelea) as keyboard sessionist and he has been with the group ever since.

Several months afterward however, they were faced with a significant change in their line-up. It happened after their original vocalist (Hadi) decided to withdraw. The group then decided tor recruit Shahrul to fill in the spot. The choice proved to be a good move because he is naturally gifted and has similar tone of voice as their former vocalist but has his own styles and characteristics.


Statik comes from Skudai, Johor Bahru. It was created by Enol in the early year of 2004. However the band has gone through changes after after several years in the entertainment world.

Mamat, Jeff, Along, Farique, Fifie, Shaney and Hassan were once part of the band members. Now the band has only three members; Enol, Haziq and Pendi.

Statik is known for their song Cherita Kita and Nikmat Sementara.

Zip Zieller and the Klasik Ikan Keli

The vocalist for Zip Zieller has moved to Johor Bahru in order to experience something new. Zieller and the Klasik Ikan Keli is his solo band project in Johor Bahru. Based on Rock n Roll and blues, the band wants to ensnare and ensure that the spirits and passions of the younger generations keep on burning.

Finger Inc

Finger Inc consists of Leman (drummer, Priceless Stupid Box), Madey (lead guitar, Priceless Stupid Box), Nuar (bassist, Priceless Stupid Box), Lynn (lead vocalist) and Aqi (rhythm guitar).

Formerly the three fyts wgi were already in F.I recruited Lynn as the vocalist after some serious Karaoke-ing, and were looking for another guitar player. After seeing Aqi played some songs while hanging out, they decided to recruit her too.

With everyone having different tastes in music, it brought out different elements in making their music.

Goreng Pisang Mawar

Goreng Pisang MAWAR

Goreng Pisang Mawar is well-known in Johor Bahru. The restaurant is owned by Mr. Rashid and Mrs. Misah. They first started 5 years ago at the side of Masjid Kolam Ayer. The recipes are handed down from generation to generation.

What makes the goreng pisang (bananas fritters) special? The owner said that they are not too oily, crunchy and large in size.

Besides goreng pisang the place also sells other foods such as nasi ambang, friend mee hoon and different kinds of kuih-muih.

50% of it's customers are Singaporean probably because it is pretty rare to find goreng pisang with such quality in Singapore. They also received orders from Singapore.

In the future, the owner plans to make their own batter for the goreng pisang and if possible to open a branch in Singapore.

Entry by Nbilla Jane Riza

World most complicated music. Have you ever think about it? A fact from my current read book tells me that it is gamelan. Research by Heather Jennings, a physicist, outcomes a number from zero to one as the indicator of complexity. The closer the music came to one, the more complex it was. Gamelan got the highest value, and is above Brazillian forro, techno, jazz, and rock ‘n’ roll. Sorry to suffocating death metal and the chaos of fengtau; they are classified as noise.

Waduh! Gamelan, sayang... is the song that they play during kuda kepang! As I read the fact, it made me realized why people were so "into" the kuda kepang when the music was being played.

"Gamelan is as interesting as it is complex. There’s a mesmeric quality to gamelan, which stems from the repetitious nature of its rythms. A single chime sounds familiar and ordinary, but many chimes combined create an effect that is other-worldly and rather beautiful.” - Mark Lewis

How crazy was that? Even a Mat Salleh felt what I felt! No wonder people was possessed!

JOHO, lets watch some kuda kepang!

Teater Srikandi Tanah Jauhar

(photo is credited to Ezzah Khairanee)

When: October 23 & 24, 2009
Where: Auditorium Sultan Iskandar RTM, Johor Bahru
Synopsis: The theater tell us the story of how the Srikandi became the legend that she was and the chain of events that lead her to Jauhar (which will be known as Johor later).

This was the first event that JOHO promoted since it's creation in early October 2009. The respond was overwhelming, as can be seen by the turn out of the audience and the responds that we got from our members that went to the theater.

It was also the first time that members of JOHO got to mingle and met each other. We even hang out together after the theater, ate dinner, visited the Junk Sale and basically just got to know each other.

Mission accomplished.
