Hunt for MTV World Stage Insider

My profile, no? My X-file?

A college student is nothing but passionate, curious, engaging and brave. ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’, exploring, sharing and writing is how I share my stories with people around me. I have been active on blog since 2008, when I was in secondary school (Form 2 and yes, I’m currently 19 years old). As a teenager like everybody else, constant update of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Blogger is part of my life. I reserve my weekends mostly to attend concerts, events and do coverage on my social website. Fret not, my studies are not neglected.

I can say that I am a hardcore concert goer since 2005, when I was in primary 5. I’ve attended numerous concerts, events, fan meeting, showcases and roadshows. I don’t deny that Kpop was the fundamental of all these excessive activities of mine (please dont judge me ><) but no doubt music was the thing I was passionate about. I've learned music, specifically piano when I was 5 years old. Music has been my companion through the roller coaster journey of my life. I can speak fluent English, Chinese, Malay and Mandarin. I don’t discriminate any music genre and I listen to songs with different language. This is how I pick up some Korean language by my own, through music and dramas. Music taught me lot. You can find expression, love, emotion, art, and soul in music. MTV have certainly feed my addiction of music.

My MTV World Stage experience

I have proudly attended MTV World Stage 2012 last year and there is no way I could describe the awesomeness but SSCCCCRRREEEEAAAAMMMMMSSSSSS!! The lineup was superb, the stage was magnificent, the songs were phenomenal, the crowd was sizzling hot and most importantly, the venue was superspecialawesome! A stage in the middle of a surf beach? How exceptional is that?
On top of that, Justin Bieber was the opening act, followed by Kara, Mizz Nina and Jay Park. I would never in my life, imagine that I can catch Bieber performing on stage, in front of me, LIVE! It was like a scene that I can only watch through screens. Let’s not forget our local darling, Mizz Nina. I can’t thank MTV World Stage enough by inviting Mizz Nina and Jay Park for the event. MTV World Stage was the reason of the birth of their collaboration song, 'Around The World'. I think they should thank MTV World Stage for that, right?

1. Tickets for 2012
2. Tickets for 2011

I’ve won tickets for MTV World Stage 2012 and 2011. It was a shame I couldn't make it in 2011 because of my major exam, SPM. I was glad MTV World Stage 2012 made everything worthwhile.  I am not afraid to say that I am not only the right person for the role of an insider but the BEST. Looking at the amount of events that I have attended, coverage, update, spamming, pictures, tweets, instagram-ing are not problems to me. That is what I do every time, every minute, every second I attend any events.

Just a few local/charity/youth events to name, I have attended the following:

My poem for MTV World Stage and Kpop!

Dear MTV, Shall I resist myself or convince myself?

That MTV World Stage isn’t tempting and more events are coming,

Hallyu Wave do shake the darling buds of September 2013,

And MTV World Stage as the biggest event, all too hard to miss,

VIPs, Exotics, Inspirits, Beauty, Primadonna, LOVE, Bestfriends, STAR1, BANAs, ELFs, 4nias, Boice, Baby a few to name,

Taking Korea’s music scene by storm with vocals and charms,

Today, I can be sure of nothing but a spectacular time when you catch Kpop idols live in front of your eyes,

Extravagance did came through my mind,

What with the change of costumes and the huge amount of backstage performers,

With the spotlight hitting directly on the dream guy of many teenage girls and dream girl of many teenage guys,

With the power of Kpop, Rain no longer refers to the Mother Nature,

JB no long stands for Justin Bieber,

Beast no longer exist as an animal,

4Minute no longer stay in time,

Infinite doesn’t mean without beginning or end but will always be there,

Exo is no longer a prefix with external as the meaning,

How much do I love Kpop? Let me count the ways,

I love Kpop to the depth and breadth and height,

My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight,

I love Kpop freely, as men strive for Right,

I love Kpop purely, as they turn from Praise,

I love Kpop with the passion put to use,

In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith,

I love Kpop with a love I seem to love,

I love Kpop with the breath,

Smiles, tears, of my life!

And if God choose,

I shall but love Kpop better in my next life.

A Note to MTV

I know I am the not only the right one but the BEST candidate to take the role as MTV's Insider. I proved my ability through writing, posting, sharing and capturing. I hope MTV can give me this huge opportunity to become THE MTV INSIDER because I know I can prove to you that you have made the right choice!

Thank you for giving bloggers an opportunity to prove themselves, I definitely need it :)
