Reshmonu's HARAPAN CD - Buy it!

If you have tuned in to our local stations when you make that daily grind to the office you most probably have heard Oh Anok Anok right? Yeah, that's the one, the catchy Kelantanese-inspired anthem. (Click for the MTV youtube video)

That's by Reshmonu and the lyrics are by my beloved, multi-talented sister, Pacha.

His first full-length Malay album has just made it to market, folks, with Pacha penning most of the lyrics. Pacha had also written his award winning 2004 hit Cintaku Pergi.

HARAPAN is up for 5 nominations for the upcoming A.I.M. (Anugerah Industri Muzik) Awards 2009 in May for Best Pop Album, Best Engineered Album, Best Music Video, Best Male Vocal Performance for 'Sayu' and 'Doa Untuk Dia'.

To order the CD, please go here. It comes with a nice denim CD "sock" by Key Ng.

If nothing else, proceeds from my sister's royalties will go towards me taking you guys out for teh tarik, eh?

Excerpt from Resh's Facebook:

Teh ais pun takper, tambah sekupang jer. Jangan air buah cukup laa. Eh, betul ke Lan ada dalam Pirivu? Awat I tak tahu? Small world...

What do you think of the lyrics, E? If you listen to 'Sayu' on Harapan, I know personally what my sister meant...


Bro Drifter Xmizanx,

Thanks for dropping by bro'. Eh, bila laa aq dapat pake keter tarik belakang nih...



What are brothers for? Love you!



I think so too. I only have two sisters one other brother who's the youngest. I'm the eldest, Pacha's the third. Did you know the second one is called Intan? :)

Thanks ya? I really love my siblings to bits.

Bro Mat,
I will definitely buy this album as I rarely buy any such things nowadays as most songs are downloadable for free on the internet. Buying it speaks volumes of my appreciation of Reshmonu's songs and lyrics by your talented sister Pacha.

Mat Salo said...

Thanks for the support Bang Zawi!
