Who’s going to Sunburst KL09?


Who’s going to Sunburst? I’m particularly interested in this music festival coz Korn is headlining it. I’ve always been a big fan of Korn and the first ever korncert (pardon the pun) I went to was their show in Christchurch, New Zealand when I was 15. I was in the mosh pit. It was awesome – they had gigantic replica blow up genitalia hanging from the ceiling and the crowd was super energetic. I love their music, even though they kinda fit the term “sell-out” after the second album.

…but that’s digressing. I still love them (don’t know why, it’s just like how I still love Green Day and Offspring – they’re the bands I grew up with).


We’re very passionate about music in the office – we even have a resident DJ (who’s actually a designer) playing music all day long. Naturally, all of us at the office are looking forward to Sunburst KL09 – we have a couple of Korn fans (literally a couple, there are only two Korn fans in the office, I’m sad to report), a legion of Erykah Badu admirers and a sprinkling of people into the local music scene. I guess that says a lot about the demographics of our office…mainstream. πŸ™‚

Sunburst KL09 is the annual music festival held on the grounds of Bukit Kiara Equestrian Club with the biggest names in international music playing alongside regional and local talent. It’s a source of great discussion at my workplace (usually centered on whether Korn is coming). It’s also home to the iconic Sun and Sky stage:


The Sun and Sky stage will be the main platforms though there are 6 different stages in total. This one day 12-hour music festival features names like Korn (I like!), Erykah Badu, Skye, and Butterfingers. There is also a beer garden, so you won’t have to worry about liquid refreshment. πŸ˜‰

I’ve gotten myself a ticket to Sunburst KL09 early on but relinquished it to a coworker coz I’m kinda broke this month. I’ve been saving up for the tickets when I saw the U.O.X. Sunburst promotion. There are a lot of people under 25 in my office and some of them are U.O.X. members so I persuaded one of my coworkers to join and pass me one of the tickets if she wins.

It’s just two simple steps to win 2 FREE tickets worth RM 203 each if you’re a U.O.X. member:

1. Type REGFREETIX and send to 28881
2. Upon receiving confirmation via SMS, just reload RM 30 before 17 March 2009 for a chance to win

MeTV is also running a promotion where you can win a pair of exclusive Meet & Greet passes plus 2 FREE tickets worth RM 203 each.

I like the idea of submitting fan videos so I decided to shoot a video using one of Korn’s tracks. Plus, I figured joining both would increase my chances of winning. πŸ˜‰

Here’s what you need to do:

1. Record your best “I want to be at Sunburst KL09” video or picture.
2. Send your video or picture via MMS to 26388

Meanwhile, if you want to watch, rate & download Sunburst videos on MeTV:

Step 1: Log on to http://wap.channelx.com.my from your mobile
Step 2: Go to Fun Stuff and select MeTV
Step 3: Click on the Sunburst category.
Step 4: Watch, rate (my video) or download any of the listed videos.


This is my interpretation of Korn’s a.d.i.d.a.s. – the video took a rather long time to shoot due to some of the cast not being able to make it on a weekend night. I like how it turned out though – it’s remarkably similar to my vision despite having to make some last minute changes to the script.

My Sunburst submission is a departure from my recent videos and a return to the old sixthseal.com videos – dark, gritty, and realistic. I feel it kinda gels with the mood in the first and second album Korn produced. I wanted to pay homage to my favorite band and do something extra for the MeTV Sunburst promotion.


I really hope I win. *fingers crossed* I want to go to Sunburst KL09! Just look at my mundane and boring existence in the video! It’s all work, surfing the net at home, and casual se…er, searching for meaning in life. πŸ˜‰ I need to get out more.

…more than anything, I want to win the Meet & Greet passes to see Korn! =D

  2. HB, I so shock at seeing your apt. Make me want to go there and have you not me clean it up. I am a neat person but just kidding about your apt. Glad you enjoying the most of living in the city.

  3. Gin: Thanks to the great invention known as…the cell phone. :p
    Korn is what?
    Yatz: Yeah! I love the first and second album. Best two albums from Korn as far as I’m concerned.
    hitomi: You’re not a Korn fan so you wouldn’t understand. πŸ™‚
    Read the lyrics to Korn’s a.d.i.d.a.s.
    chefmel: Yeah, I know. :S
    It’s very, very messy at home.
    Yeah, sure, feel free to crash at my place. No worries. I’m staying in PJ though. πŸ™‚
    andrew: Yep, me too. I love Korn!
    Vickie: Haha! I’m not a big fan of cleaning up. I’m thinking of hiring a part time maid once a week.
    chriso: See ya there! It’s my messy living room. πŸ™‚
    WEEN: Heresy dude! Their first self titled debut is awesome!
    essentric: Yeah, it’s chicken soup for the soul, or so I’ve been told. πŸ™‚

  4. though there’s probably a chance i might be in kl during the festival when korn is playing,(cos even if i do make it to kl,) my attendance at sunburst depends solely on the missus’s approval and decision. long story…
    anyway, would be great to be able to bump into you in person. will keep you noted if possibility arises or should i just say, “if i’m going” πŸ˜‰

  5. eiling: Yeah, it was EVEN more of a mess a few weeks ago. :S
    Arth Akal: Yeah mate, it would be great to see you at the fest. I missed you last time I was in Miri. It’ll be fun! Call me if you come – 016 888 2069.

  6. so sien wun. sunburst nice meh. dont have Black Eye Peas ar, or Justin Timberlake ar, or Nine Inch Nails ar, Leona Lewis ar… LOL! SIEN! I want all that can?!?!?! IN SUNBURST!
    since the NAME has -BURST. ehem…

  7. Jade Zheng: Alamak! Except for NIN, our musical tastes are completely different. πŸ™‚
    I love Korn, their self-titled debut album is the best. Follow the Leader isn’t bad too, but it kinda went downhill from there.
    I still love their music though, and I’m proud to attend their concert in NZ in their glory days (just after releasing FTL). πŸ™‚

  8. Simon Seow: Mine too. Just need to write the script right, get someone to film you and think of angles and video edit the rest. πŸ™‚
    Ediη₯ž: Korn, office people or me?
    1. Korn is still my favorite
    2. That’s not my office, I don’t take photos of my office – it’s the KPMG office thanks to a friend of mine
    3. Not yet…in two years I’ll be hitting the big 30 though. πŸ˜‰

  9. Jeff: Eh, this is not a lot. I got MORE in Kuching coz I don’t like coins. It jangles in my pockets and scratches my PDA/digicam/phone.
    Louis: See ya there buddy! πŸ™‚

  10. Motherfucker! I just ran two red lights in SEA park and got flashed TWICE. Why are there so many red light cams in that fucking place?
    It flashes twice (strobe light) each time I ran through the two red lights. I’ve been told it’s RM 300 each so that’s RM 600 in total.

  11. see that’s what you get for listening to korn.
    the guys in korn are like 40 years old and they sing about being picked on in high school.
    tool is a better band dude.

  12. WEEN: LOL! What has listening to Korn gotta do with running red lights?
    Anyway, that’s not all Korn sings about. Ball Tongue is a song about hypocrites and what piqued my interest in the band is the last song in the debut album – Daddy, a song about child sexual abuse. It is speculated that it’s Jon’s actual experience with his father.
    I didn’t like Korn at first too but I gave them a chance. It kinda grew on me.
    I listen to Tool too but I like Korn.
    Listen to their self titled debut album first, then Life is Peachy.
    Two of their best albums.

  13. eh eh . i dont mind to collect your coins for you if i do drop by someday. Then you can commisioned me like wat you did when your friend collected 2k worth of coins. :p I collect my dad’s coins at home and changed them in the bank so i can have extra pocket money. Haha .

  14. chefmel: Can! No problem, I’ll love that. I’m a very messy person. :S
    20% commission. Haha!
    It’s not a lot though coz I’ve just stayed at my condo for 3 months.

  15. Paul: Erm…that’s not actually my office. I don’t take photos of my office. Photo courtesy of my friend who works in KPMG. She took a photo of her coworkers. Those are auditors so I imagine they are on the move a lot.
    tzia: It’s the second year of the festival. The only reason I want to go – Korn. πŸ™‚
    Joyce: Haha! πŸ™‚
