Corinne Bailey Rae – Is This Love

莫文蔚-陰天 (Aural Pleasure)

Super Loveeeeeee

陰天 在不開燈的房間 當所有思緒都一點一點沉澱
愛情究竟是精神鴉片 還是世紀末的無聊消遣
香煙 氳成一灘光圈 和他的照片就擺在手邊
傻傻兩個人 笑的多甜

開始總是分分鐘都妙不可言 誰都以為熱情它永不會減
除了激情褪去後的那一點點倦
也許像誰說過的貪得無厭 活該應了誰說過的不知檢點
總之那幾年 感性贏了理性那一面

陰天 在不開燈的房間 當所有思緒都一點一點沉澱
愛恨情慾裡的疑點 盲點 呼之欲出 那麼明顯

女孩 通通讓到一邊 這歌裡的細微末節就算都體驗
若想真明白 真要好幾年

回想那一天 喧鬧的喜宴
耳邊響起的究竟是序曲或完結篇

感情不就是你情我願 最好愛恨扯平兩不相欠
感情說穿了 一人掙脫的 一人去撿
男人大可不必百口莫辯 女人實在無須楚楚可憐
總之那幾年 你們兩個沒有緣

你會不會 – Fish Leong

房間是你的氣息你還沒醒
緊緊地頭挨著你你伸手握我手心
這是真的還是種夢境
被捧在手心還是不確定

愛來來去去走走停停
無論多小心
說過不放感情直到我遇見你
這不是運氣是種默契
卻讓我恐懼
你會不會美麗往往都易碎
對不對

遺憾變暖意暖意變淚滴
淚滴變成鑽石我珍惜被你珍惜
愛是水晶好透明又怕被跌碎的心
偷偷竊喜 屏住呼吸

愛來來去去走走停停
無論多小心
說過不放感情直到我遇見你
這不是運氣是種默契
卻讓我恐懼
你會不會熱情往往會減退
對不對

愛來來去去走走停停
無論多小心
說過不放感情不再患得患失
這不是運氣是種篤定
更怕會失去
你會不會決心最後會撤退
會不會

愛你

Justin Timberlake – Mirrors

So he is back. JT is back!

I like this new song and he is 1 of my fav. However, i still prefer the good old ‘Sexyback’. Goodness, its been ages.

V updates L

vvvv

Some updates about my past week.

I finally get to sing!

Have been wanting to sing because i can hardly remember the last time i sang. It was my hobby and frequent activity in the past but i guess i hardly have time for that recently.

I miss my singing bffs. They are none other than the usual clique but they are now married and are busy making babies i reckon.

Maybe we will get to meet soon? Not sure, the meeting has been delayed n more delays.

Anyway, i was a very blessed kid that day, paid the minimal (with all the discounts and all, thanks to W) and get the biggest room. Haha.

I personally prefer Party World than KBox, Partyworld doesnt give you store rooms even if there are only 2 pax (KBox’s rooms are pathetic, too small and are of size of storerooms) and PW even have massagers in the rooms, and the service is also very good.

I havent try the K Suite though and thus i prefer PW if you want to compare the common rooms.

Singing wasnt fantastic but dont judge lah, i havent sing for so long and i am not professional yo.

Damn shiok. Singing and massaging. If you mind, clean the feet with wipe tissue or something lah, ntg is perfect, i doubt they washes that cloth?  Not sure.

What else did i do, ok, the usual hang with Gary and Seven, we just chillax mostly now and sit around boozing and goofing.

The couple is leaving SG soon, i wish them a safe journey!

I completed another event at The China Club and i cant be any happier to work with the organizer Mrs Benelli / Chef  Roberto of Garibaldi and also, Pisotorio Foundation.

A little info on Pistorio Foundation:

5a38a5aa8c5711e2aa5e22000a1f96ec_7

The Pistorio Foundation, founded in 2005 by Pasquale Pistorio, is a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the living conditions of underprivileged children in developing countries, by building school and primary health care infrastructure and by sponsoring children’s education, health, and welfare.

Our vision is to send to school 10 000 children every year by the year 2015.

We operate exclusively through a network of volunteers and in close collaboration with rigorously selected local NGOs. All available resources go directly to our projects on location to benefit the children we are supporting.

Currently we have ongoing projects in Burkina Faso, Morocco, (Tibet) China, Thailand, and Cambodia. We are supporting the long-term education of 868 children throughout these countries. We have doubled the size of a primary school in Nibagdo, Burkina, we have built a dormitory at a school campus in Lithang, Tibet (China), a primary school and dormitory in Chiang Rai, Thailand. Currently we are completing construction of a secondary school in the rural area of Nibagdo region.

Our aims are
to acheive maximum transparency and efficiency in the non profit sector, 
to change the lives for the better of as many children and families as we can reach, 
to raise awareness amongst our friends and international community on the current living conditions of children in the developing world,
to raise attention and sensitivize communities towards children’s rights issues and the urgent need for the proper implementation, enforcement and respect of the rights of the child worldwide

The Foundation has no political or religious affiliation.

You may also read more and see visuals HERE.

The Dinner was a success, we had a silent Auction and we managed to help raise funds for Pistorio Foundation too.

The details of the dinner were posted on my blog previously HERE

I learnt that, there are kids all over the world that are deprived of the chances to study,live or even survive & the number of these kids are more than what we can imagine.

What really surprises me is that, with just $8, you can provide 1 backpack for a kid. $8 is only (approx) 1 full meal at Subway!

And at $80, you can provide 1 full year of transportation fee for 1 child. ($80 can last me for only a month!)

I am really not the kindest person ever, you see, i am still quite transparent with my emotions, which might or might not be a good thing.

I still complain and whine abt certain nonsense……ok back to the topic>>>

But, i seriously feel for these kids. And what makes me ache in e heart is, with that little amount of $, i can actually help so much.

$8 is not even the price of a packet of Cigarettes.  During those days which i smoke, I used to smoke 2 packets of Cigs a week and that amount to $20+ already. Imagine how many backpacks i can afford for the kids?

If you are interested in doing your part for these poor kids, please go to the website and read more on this foundation and how you can make your donations. You can be assured that there are no 3rd parties related or associated to this foundation and 100% of your donation will go directly to the projects.

Anyway, the night was really a busy but meaningful one and i am glad i am involved.

I am what I am
我永遠都愛這樣的我 (I love ME forever)

快樂是 快樂的方式不只一種 (there are many ways to be happy)
最榮幸是 誰都是造物者的光榮 (I am honoured, i am the Creator’s proud creation*)
不用閃躲 為我喜歡的生活而活 (i do not hide and i live the way i like)

#我就是我 是顏色不一樣的煙火 ( I am what i am, i am colourful)
天空開闊 要做最堅強的泡沫 (as wide as the sky can be, i want to be strong)
我喜歡我 讓薔薇開出一種結果 ( I like ME, like a flower, i am blooming)
孤獨的沙漠裡 一樣盛放的赤裸裸 (even if i am alone in a dry dessert, i can blossom like a flower in truth)

多麼高興 在琉璃屋中快樂生活 (I am very happy to live with transparency)
對世界說 甚麼是光明磊落 (i show the world that i am transparent and what righteous is)

If you understand mandarin, or at least, able to read Chinese, is likely that you will love this song.
For people who do not love yourselves, please learn to see the beauty in yourself despite the flaws.
we are Beautiful because we are Imperfect.

Perfection is not beautiful at all.
It is artificial.
At least to me.
Imperfection like SCAR, reminds you of your past, and behold, dont let the past hinder your present.
It just remind you to be wiser.
Imperfection like SCAR, push you further to your future, to pursue more for your future.
Isnt imperfection beautiful?

*造物者 means Creator. For me, i refer this Creator to my God.
And indeed, i was constantly reminded that, God is very proud of His creation.
This song actually talked about that!
When i am respecting myself, i am respecting God and His creation.

The song is so spiritual, i am wondering if a Believer penned it.
Living in transparency and with joy, is 1 of the core beliefs for us children of Christ!

And of course, i love the man who is singing this song.  (thinking aloud: all my frens knew it, i think. ha)

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”
Genesis 1:27

“God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.”
Genesis 1:31

This is so precious.  The demo of ‘Red’. A song by my favourite Singer.
It is just..Sexy.

When Cantopop meets Trip Hop

A Trip Hop piece:

In the Western Music industry now, Lady Gaga mixes Pop with Techno with great success.
In the Asian Music world way back, Leslie Cheung already introduced Canto-pop into another level. 
Similar to the above, he was also best  known for his flamboyant fashion performances.

Original Piece of ‘Red’:

Not many people dig this performance. Some feel that it is too heavy, some commented that it is too ‘gayish’.
I feel it  is just perfect, if you look beyond Gender, and view the performer as a performer, as an individual, it is very captivating.

p/s: Trip hop (or trip-hop) is a genre consisting of downtempo electronic music, originating in the early 1990s in the United Kingdom, especially Bristol. Deriving from “post”-acid house,[3] the term was first used by the British music media and press as a way to describe the more experimental variant of breakbeat which contained influences of soul, funk and jazz.[3] It has been described as “Europe’s alternative choice in the second half of the ’90s”, and “a fusion of hip hop and electronica until neither genre is recognisable.”[4] Trip hop music fuses several styles and has much in common with other genres; it has several qualities similar to ambient music,[3] its drum-based breakdowns share characteristics with hip hop,[3] and it also contains elements of house, dance, R&B and dub reggae. Trip hop can be highly experimental in nature.[3]

My readers might not be the close friends, as my friends arent normally the ones that read blogs. Anyway, i wont know who are the ones reading lah.
I see a few from other countries, Thailand, Hong Kong, Msia, and also the USA, France and etc.
