I would like to share some good music with you guys. Recently, i am very into soothing Jazz, Bossa Nova, Slow rock, Shanghai Jazz.
It depends on my mood, weather (yes! weather makes a diff too! haha, really!) and time (i dont like listening to fast tracks in the mornings).
I was listening to various Jazz and Bossa Nova singers singing old school chinese tunes like ye shang hai, qing mi ai ren. It is so sensual and soothing.
Then, i was on Youtube listening randomly to different songs of the similar genre. Then i found this singer – Qu Wan Ting. I wouldnt say she belongs to Jazz nor Bossa Nova, perhaps more Alternative/Pop.
Yes, she is on my current playlist (together with Joanna Wang)
She has this unique voice that captivates and captures my attention. To be honest, i do not usually download ALL the songs of 1 singer no matter how much i like the singer.
But her voice really impressed me and i went to get a whole list of her songs just for her voice, nvm if the tunes or lyrics are not to my liking.
Here is some info of her, courtesy of Wikipedia:
Wanting Qu (also known as Qu Wanting; Chinese 曲婉婷) (October 10, 1983 in Harbin, Heilongjiang) is a Chinese–Canadian pianist, singer and songwriter based in Vancouver. In 2009, she became the first Chinese artist to be signed to the Nettwerk label; she is managed by Terry McBride.
Both her English and Mandarin tracks are very nice, if i were to describe them in my way, i would say… They are like glasses of fresh chilled Orange Juice, which you would thirst for, in the sunny Singapore.
Alright, I personally like these few tracks specially: Drenched, Everything in the World, Hideaway, You exist in my song
You may want to google / youtube Qu WanTing for other/ more songs performed by her.
Prior to Qu WanTing, there is this lady name Joanna Wang. Similar voice and also very outstanding, but i heard she isnt so into Pop music industry, and she left the pop industry. 😦
I hope Qu WanTing will not disappear like Joanna Wang.
I dont know what has gotten into me, i am so into Oldies nowadays, Old Chinese Jazz, Old Canto/Mandarin Pop. I hope it is not the age thing. haha.
But these songs are so soothing, (like ice vanilla and OJ in the summer) how to resist!! I hope you will like what i shared 🙂
Recently, i took a leap of faith to try out SK2. Yes, i heard alot of rumours that SK2 might not be as gd as it sounds, i dont know because i have never use SK2 before. My frens whom used it told me that the moment u stop using, u will see the worse outbreak ever. I was lik…”really meh. omg”
So i decided to take the risk and try it out. I first used it ytd night and i will give myself anotehr 28 days or so to see the results. If is good, i will highly recommend here! 😀
I will be back to blog (like really sit down and write) soon.For now, i am off to the musical land, aww so soothing and dreamy! Music loves ❤

Star to believe
Star to reach
Star to a cheer
Star to dream of

– Joanna Wang ,fantastic rendition of 償還. She made the song sound a little sad, a little sexy, a little angsty, while the original piece is very sad (by Teresa Teng).
The ever awesome original as below, by Teresa Teng (i told u i am really into oldies)
