MY FM celebrates birthday with a fantastic adventure
By Jude Toyat
MY FM celebrated their 3rd Birthday Bash a little differently from other media birthday bashes by acting, singing and performing in their own musical called ‘Fantasy Adventure’.
Performed by MY FM Morning Crew, Sarawak radio announcers, and their invited guests which include Taiwan sensation Anthony Neely, Fuying & Sam, Bell ‘Yu Tian’, Pink ‘Chin Ke Bing’, and Alvin ‘Zhong Jin Hua’ the musical revolves around MY FM announcer Penny, who plays a girl from another dimension.
Penny lands in ‘Fantasy World’ and is tasked to save this realm by defeating evil wizard Chris, played by another MY FM announcer, by collecting seven magical weapons from various messengers.
The weapons are in fact encouraging words in boxes and every messenger gives different messages to Penny, helping her accomplish her mission of defeating the wizard and spreading good values to the people of ‘Fantasy World’.
Throughout her adventure, Penny is accompanied by White Messenger, Ai Sing (MY FM fellow announcer).
The first weapon is obtained from the Courage Messenger (played by Pink) where she performs two songs, ‘Yong Qi’ (Courage) and ‘Never Let You Go’.
Later on, they meet the Assertiveness Messenger (played by Bell) who she does an amazing rendition of ‘Ji De Ni Shou Guo’ (Remember You’ve Said) and ‘Yu Shi Tian De’ (Sweet Rain).
After that, they meet the Purity Messenger, ‘Ah Beng’, ‘Ah Hian’, and ‘Ah Lian’ (characters taken from the movie Ah Beng Mission Impossible) played by MY FM Morning Crew announcers who all sing ‘Kampung Zai’ (Anak Kampung).
Another weapon is handed to them by the Excel Messenger (played by Alvin), who also performs his fantastic songs, ‘Bu Ke Nen Ren Wu’ (Mission Impossible) and ‘Shou Hu’ (Protection).
Shortly after, they meet the Friendship Messenger (played by Fuying & Sam) who gives them the next weapon, and perform, ‘Quan Shi Jie Dou Yi Wei Wo Men Zai Yi Qi’ (The World Thought We Were Together) and ‘Fen Kai Yi Hou’ (After Separation).
The Confidence Messenger (played by Anthony Neely) gives the the sixth weapon and he performs three songs, ‘Yi Que Dou Shi Yin Wei Ai’ (Everything is Love), ‘Wo Shi Ni De’ (I’m Yours) and ‘Shan Chang De Yong Bau’ (The Last Embrace).
The final weapon is then received from the audience and the performances had successfully captivated MY FM listeners and audiences of the concert with amazing reception and response.
A total of 8,000 people showed up for the birthday bash held at the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) hall on Dec 28, exceeding MY FM’s initial target of 7,000 people.
