See... I told you so

Haha... I really wanted to use that line so badly and sorry to say that whatever I have predicted a few days ago on my post "Let's hold our breath..." did come true. Beyonce's concert was postponed and the new date is not released. Read it here.

I was at the gym just now (yes, I am now working out due to some vain reasons which state the obvious) and some of them are grunting about this. A lady even bought a thousand dollar ticket to watch Beyonce!

What The Star said was mild. It did give hope to the concert goers that the concert will still go on but at a later date. However, my gut feeling tells me that you can might as well forget about going because the other international media like here and here did mention that "Beyonce has been forced to cancel her concert in Malaysia after an Islamist party raised concerns, citing “moral issues” according to ABC news." And they even cited that a muslim lady was sentenced to canning for drinking alcohol. Well done Malaysia!

And you should even read the comments by readers in the ABC news. I think they spoke their mind and it is indeed sad for me to read that.

And as a conclusion, if the organiser is so positive that this is just a postponement and not a cancellation, why do they allow people to get a refund? Hmmm....

From the very beginning, I have my doubts over the concert. But for the past week, it had given me some hope! Besides, the noise coming from PAS subsided so I thought it would really come true.

If I were Beyonce, I would be afraid to go to Malaysia too with horrible write ups and reports from the media. There are so many other places where she can perform and make huge $$$, why take the risk to go Malaysia?

I guess it's just too bad for her Malaysian fans!

i heard that the concert was postponed until further notice, this week. ok fine.

but when they announced that the fans can get their refund, i kinda doubt that the concert will carry on.

very well said in your blog.

Oh well, at least I'm not a fan. All the bands I love will never play over here, and even if they do, (like NOFX), PAS will never hear of it.

Foongpc: Yeah, why should Beyonce cover up and sing here while she can be sexy and sing elsewhere!

June: I feel so sorry for your friends. They must be disappointed.

KY: HAha... Malaysia Boleh!

Pete: Good for you!

MRAFJ: Yup

Vincent: Yeah exactly what I felt too. If me, I'll go and get a refund.

Huai Bin: haha... I'm sure of that. I also haven't heard of it before. You're special!
