Cherished Moments...

Hafiz AF7

I didn't know what was I up to this year AF7's season. I was truly falling head over heels with the superb performance of this 19-year-old. The much awaited weekly concert ,which was broadcasted by a private tv station, was never missed since March till May. It was all for a watch him sing in that reality show and much to the satisfaction of viewers, he sang superbly most of the time.

A natural-born talent, I'd say. He had captured the hearts of audiences, young and old alike. As viewers were able to vote the contestants they favoured most by sending sms, I was among the thousands who didn't miss the chance to do so. It was quite an amount but worth spending when eventually he became the champion of AF7! That was one of the most cherished moments for those who have become fans of this aspiring star. It's about 3 months now after the glorious night of being chosen by Malaysians as the champ of AF7 and he's doing well, always on the go. He has to his credit the first album which was launched on 14 July this year. Congrats!

I got the chance to meet him in person during the Meet The Fans Session & High Tea at Eastwood Valley Golf and Country Club, Miri on 8 August '09. If I didn't turn up it would be a regret of a life time! Fans, children and elders, turned up in large group and filled the ballroom. It was such a sweet moment for being able to watch his live performance and most importantly, able to talk to him even though for a short while. Flashes from cameras were everywhere and everyone was given equal share of having snapshots with him.

On a personal account, he looked so awesome that day! And of course, he is blessed with good looks and good talent. That's a good balance! It's not surprising that his good attitude have won the hearts of many people. He treated everyone equally well and so warmly. That's what most would expect from him and he had it.

As the popular saying goes, one for the album. Here I was with Hafiz's mom (on the left). She's really a very nice and friendly lady. Thank you ma'am for that little talk with you and thank you for being so warm towards all of us. Such a moment will always be cherished forever and to Hafiz, all the best to you superboy! May successes be with you always! And remember, you have strong fans out here!
