Official video kl freeze in unison

“…really wished that I could join the other day. The whole thing was beautiful. CONGRATULATIONS WELL DONE ;)”
-Erina Zahara Ellias

“Thought I should write you personally instead of ticking the RSVP box “Not Attending” that is so cold for such a warm and loving initiative in the spirit of humanity. Love and God bless you abundantly always and all ways.”
-Pat Lu

“For the sleepless nights and countless hours put into this! Was really great :)”
-Christopher Tock

KL Freeze in Unison Organising Committee

For 2 weeks now, Chantek has been the number 1 song on the charts of the number radio station in the country.

The Official Video KLFU was meant to be released on Sunday 20th April, and when it was, I told the editor, to take it down and edit it again according to my notes because of a few unexpected glitches. Despite his present success and hectic schedule, the video was worked on again promptly. Neither him nor others involved were paid for any part of their commitment. These are the kind of people I look for to work with on projects I am part of.

  • Sunday 6th April: Free Hugs at Tugu Negara with some fantastic friends.

  • Sunday 13th April: KL Freeze in Unison with an amazing team of volunteers.

  • Sunday 20th April: Freeze For World Earth Day (an event initiated and headed by hitz.fm), with a team of brilliant beings.

I once mentioned online and during a radio station interview that for KLFU I spent an immense amount of time in front of the computer, lost a lot of my appetite for food and went many hours without sleep.

I’m sure others from the team of volunteers went through something similar, and also organising committees of other projects around the world. But simple messages like the ones above from (strangers whom I may just never meet in my life,) Christopher Tock, Erina Zahara & Pat Lu, goes a really long way.

God willing, we all have made it great. From the organising committee, to the 1000 over people who made it, to the others who supported it.

Now that I am done going all Oprah on you, let’s watch the video.

“Zain, it’s ok babe. No matter what, you got my support.”
-Jennie Yang, before me & Pravin left for our first meeting with hitz.fm

With pictures, thank you kl freeze in unison

*I have started a new group on Facebook for future events. RandomActs.

*The Official KL Freeze in Unison video from the organising committee, compiled from at least 12 video cameras and 3 undercover microphones, will be uploaded as soon as possible. I imagine, no later than 20th April 2008.

*I regretfully apologise that the thumbnails/images uploaded in April are not working. This is because the programmer had installed a plugin so that you could view all the pictures conveniently. As a result, it has inconveniently affected pictures previously uploaded. Be patient while Basement Jaxx Remedy this matter. Meanwhile, I shall pour hot water RA‘s programmer’s fingers. You are welcome to join me.

Thank you for participating KL Freeze in Unison (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Gathering Point at 2.30pm Lot 10. Freeze Point at 3.35pm Pavillion.

I am not certain if they welcomed the surprise, but I also thank the management & security of Lot 10 & Pavillion.

Had I known that today was the Tamil new year, I would have selected a more convenient date. Either way,

Happy Tamil New Year.

At 1 pm the organising committee had a meeting at Secret Recipe across BB Plaza. I passed each member a brief which began with a paragraph that read,

First of all, I thank you all for actively participating in KL Freeze in Unison. I highly appreciate it. I will remember this for a long time, unless there’s a fckup. I’ll remember THAT even longer.

There was none. It all went splendidly well. To the 20++ individuals who volunteered, took instructions from me, Saddam HusZain, I take my hat and curly hair off to you.

There were a number of public figures who participated in the Freeze. I stick to my policy of not mentioning your name, but I make an exception for Jazeman Jaafar who approached me to personally to shake my hand.

Now my right palm smells like Sepang. Horrible. It sucks.

And to the other strangers I shook hands with, I’ll know your name (3 girls and 2 guys at the staircase) when you become famous. I really appreciate that simple gesture and kind words.

Ultimately, I believe that God willing this happened. That’s my personal belief. So to the next tier…from the bottom of my left ventricle, which is the bottom of my heart, my love and gratitude flies out with wings (one from MAS & one from AirAsia), to all those who made it today.

Because WE made it. We ALL made it.
