Tiger Asian Music Festival 2012 is set to rock the house next month. Returning edgier than ever, Tiger AMF 2012 will bring only the most progressive and urban sounds of Asia for a one night only mind-blowing music festival. Straight from the street to the beach, urban music lovers can expect a night filled with electrifying and high-octane collaborative performances by some of Asia’s most talented artists, while immersing themselves in the unique street themed festivities brought alive by Tiger.

Blasting off from 6.30pm until 12 midnight, the awesome artists lineup of the night include Paul Wong and Ka Keung (Beyond) as well as LMF from Hong Kong. Coming on board also are Taiwan’s unparalleled outfits namely Jam Hsiao, A-Lin, A-Yue, and MC Hotdog, and not forgetting our very own notable home-grown act, ManHand

LMF (Hong Kong)
LMF (Hong Kong)

The members of rap group LMF all grew up in poverty, and this is reflected in their music: an angry, edgy, vehement tirade about economic oppression and social alienation faced by Hong Kong's lower class. While their use of expletives has drawn criticism, there is no denying their talent, originality, popularity and most importantly, their role in bringing the pressing issues faced by the poor people of Hong Kong to the forefront of social consciousness.

Ka Keung from Beyond (Hong Kong)

Formed in 1983, legendary rock band Beyond is the most successful and influential group to ever come out of Hong Kong, with both Chinese and non-Chinese fans across Asia. Though Beyond disbanded in 2005, its members continued to be consummate entertainers, playing the roles of composers, songwriters, musicians and actors - performing as solo artistes or forming their own bands. At Tiger Asian Music Festival 2012, two of these music industry greats - Wong Ka-Keung and Paul Wong - will be dazzling the audience with their showmanship and prodigious musical talent. Don't miss this rare opportunity to catch them live once again!

Chang Chen Yue (Taiwan)
Chang Chen Yue (Taiwan)

Rock singer Chang Chen Yue first became popular thanks to his 1998 hit song 'Ai Wo Bie Zou'. But he's not just a singer: this multi-talented Taiwanese entertainer is also a songwriter, guitarist, dance DJ and actor. The Tiger Asian Music Festival will reunite him with rapper MC Hotdog, with whom he has previously collaborated on two hip-hop singles.

MC Hotdog (Taiwan)
MC Hotdog (Taiwan)

This Taiwanese rapper has drawn controversy because of his frequent use of explicit lyrics. But his fans appreciate his music, which they feel presents a gritty, realistic picture of life. He has produced numerous hits, won several awards and sold hundreds of thousands of CDs. His 2006 album Wake Up was both critically acclaimed and a commercial success, appealing to a wide range of audiences.

Jam Hsiao (Taiwan)
Jam Hsiao (Taiwan)

Jam Hsiao joined the One Million Star talent contest in 2007, but the show's producers, recognising his enormous talent, instead asked him to appear as a fearsome challenger who eliminates contestants in head-to-head sing-offs (PK Challenges). Jam's showmanship helped the show's ratings skyrocket, and won him legions of fans, including Taiwan's Queen of Pop A-Mei who invited him to perform a duet with her on a song in her 2007 album.

A-Lin (Taiwan)
A-Lin (Taiwan)

A-Lin has achieved rapid commercial success across the Mandarin-speaking world since her debut in 2006. Her natural talent has led some to call her the next A-Mei. Like A-Lin, A-Mei is a Taiwanese aborigine of Amis descent, and arguably the most popular singer from Taiwan. A-Lin herself has admitted that A-Mei has greatly influenced her and frequently covers A-Mei's songs when she performs.

ManHand (Malaysia)
ManHand (Malaysia)

ManHand's members (MC Bee, Von, Daeren, MC Toy and DJ Point) all have their own distinct characters. This has had a significant influence on their self-produced debut album, ManHanD, giving its music a uniqueness that stands out from other hip-hop/rap albums. Their one-of-a-kind sound and artistry has been recognised at the 2008 PWH Music Awards, where they won Best Group, Best Song and Best Album Design accolades. Since then, they have continued to shine, clinching the Best Chinese Singers of Malaysia Award at the GCMA Music Awards and having a string of hits on both local and international music charts.

最近, 在网络上看了PHRA PIYATHAMMO和尚和马华公会鸱唛区主席叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak)律师的双方信件, 使我的内心久久不能平伏, 良心受到很大的譴責, 不吐訢不痛快, 所以我要誠恳的説:他叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak)侓师叫外来的流流氓到三宝寺(暹廟)挑衅和尚打架及电招警方人员扣捕沙彌, 其嘲笑手法, 不外是要显示其权力, 而鞏固其职位, 以达到权力就是一切, 好让住持难堪, 自动離开, 方便行事……这种举动, 已间接的表逹其含意, 住持和尚兼顾问, 都无能为力,你们这些信徒能做什么?即使告马耒西亜佛教总会又能为难什么?这种心态, 的硧令人反感, 不是一个正信佛教者应有的行为。

至今, 三宝寺的理事成员多数是其親戚, 这是实事, 加入会员需交RM100元费用,同时,必须经过叶金福(Yip Kum Fook)律师的同意,否则免談, 所以会员也不多。

马华公会鹅唛区主席叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak)律师,自控制三宝寺之後,把三宝寺(暹廟)当着私人產業,聘用和尚賺钱,利用佛教的道地为政治活动埸所,而处理三宝寺的钱财也不透明?这点,值得信众追问。马来西亚地擴人多,和尚也不缺乏,为什么不用本地和尚当任住持化缘,却偏偏劳心劳神,浪费签证费,交通费? 还要烦劳梹城佛总的推荐信, 向文化不同, 而語言又不通之千哩外囯缅旬和尚求助? 为什么….为什么? 只要我们用头脑想一想,便一日了然, 不必晝虎添足。

叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak )律师说:欢迎任何人如有意见,可以电话03:62762369/0122039700 Email: YIPKUMFOOK@HOTMAIL.COM 戓到其马华公会鹅唛区会甲洞三宝寺及以下地圵:NO.2,B JALAN 53 TAMAN DESA JAYA KEPONG 52100 SELANGOR, MALAYSIA.討論, 我要老实的提醒大家, 最好不要一个去見他, 因为这个人狡滑, 笑裡藏刀, 很阴险, 出家人都不放在眼裡, 連TAMAN DAYA 52100 KEPONG, KUALA LUMPUR. 众人的印度廟也敢放火燒, 利用权势把场地佔为己有, 由此可见, 他是何等的心毒? 还有现在三宝寺内, 各处都按裝计孔监视来人一举一动。

目前, 三宝寺很多信徒及当地居民, 已经对叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak )律师不满, 但也不能做什么。他计划把三宝寺主席的职位轉给其子YIP JIUN HANN律师, 续承皇朝. 想近一部了觧詳情, 可上网得知。

再说, 根据前理事在网络上给叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak)律师的批評, 説他懂得包裝自己的道德守则, 以宗教为幌子手, 到处募款, 啇業经营, 政治活动为重, 并没依循佛教守則行事, 也没对人道作出貢献, 只不过借三宝寺宗教之名捞取权和私利而己, 其言也不为过, 是实事。

在此, 我恳切希望, 廣大的佛教信仰者, 给予关注, 并共創義举, 弘扬佛教. 谢谢。
