The paradox of our time in history is that :
We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers;
Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints;
We spend more, but have less;
We buy more, but enjoy it less.
We have bigger houses and smaller families;
More conveniences, but less time;
We have more degrees, but less sense;
More knowledge, but less judgment;
More experts, but more problems;
More medicine, but less wellness.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We've learned how to make a living, but not a life;
We've added years to life, not life to years.
We've been all the way to the moon and back,
But have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor.
We've conquered outer space, but not inner space;
We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul;
We've split the atom, but not our prejudice.
We have higher incomes, but lower morals;
We've become long on quantity, but short on quality.

These are the times of tall men, and short character;
Steep profits, and shallow relationships.
These are the times of world peace, but domestic warfare;
More leisure, but less fun;
More kinds of food, but less nutrition.
These are days of two incomes, but more divorce;
Of fancier houses, but broken homes.
It is a time when there is much in the show window
And nothing in the stockroom;
A time when technology can bring this letter to you,
And a time when you can choose either to make a difference

Or just hit delete.

I can't remember when is the 1st time I heard it,

But my feeling is still the same towards this song,

It stuck in my head for a very long time, in a good way,

I'd automatically sing along to the song without you even realizing it.

Bachelor Girl - Buses & Trains

Coz about boys is something I should have known
They're like chocolate cake
Like cigarettes
I know they're bad for me
But I just can't leave 'em alone
This is one of the best POP song ever.

I'm Happy

This is AMAZING.

Leona Lewis performing Happy.

That totally blew my mind away.
I'm really loving that song so much more right now.

Another highlight of the show,

Kelly Clarkson's Already Gone.

I think this song is a few step better than Halo.

Both performances is part of the VH1 Divas show.

BTW Miley is NOT a diva. ERGH.


Another song that I wanted to like so badly but it's not doing anything yet to me.

Cheryl Cole - Fight For This Love

The chorus part of the song is very very similar to some song, but I can't put my head into it. Any ideas anyone? I'm not impressed with this song at all. I might get into it after a few spin but I think she can do better than this. =/

Poppy - Rambling Post

Poppy The Club during the weekend ain't that happening. That's for sure, 2nd time around on a girls night and it stills sucks. Club is half full, crowd is a weird mix of Chinese and Malays. - Err, it's the holy month of Ramadhan and you are sipping downing alcohol to your throat in the club like nobody's business? I don't get it. Anyway, it's none of my effin business. The fact there is a lot of older generation there doesn't really stop me and my gang from having as much fun as possible. That's for sure cos I'm there? LOL. Hey, the club manager even treats us a round of drinks on the house and gave my friend a name card. Ain't too shabby huh? But the fact that I got "molested" by an OLD and pervert-ish UNCLE is kinda funny and shocking. Yup, it's funny. That's how I would like to think. :) That fella start to disturb me but I know it was nothing. Well, the fact that he have two huge ass bodyguard around him makes me kinda nervous to think about anything. I'm okay, but it would have been BETTER if he is a hottie. LOL. Eh, there is even a Zac Efron lookalike that causes a substantial amount of commotion among my girlfriends. LOL. Yup, he is that kinda hot, if you are into the Zac Efron type. The girls in the dance floor can't get enough of him though, they are like those flies attracted to a fresh piece of shit? XD No, I'm not jealous. I'm just trying to be funny. Sue me. The DJ sucks though, the mix of songs ain't impressive enough, even the clubbin-kakis is complaining about the set. It's just plain uninspiring? Everyone can't seem to get high. Well, there is always the BEP's I Gotta Feeling to save the night. It sounded amazing on the club with all those bass! The MC is effin adorable leh. LOL. Started off the day by having lunch in my faves restaurant in 1U, Nippon Yataimura, the Pork Mayo Ramen there is fucking delicious! Ergh. I got me-self a brand new shirt from Padini though. 30% off. What can I say? Gotta get me something nice since I didn't get the Radioactive shirt that I've been eye-ing on few months ago. What a good bargain. LOL. I feel so tired after yesterday's birthday celebration outing but it was worth it. That's for sure, Nothing like spending your time with the ones that you truly cherish. Hugs. Tomoro is going to be a fun day too, watching my friends get drunk for no apparent reason, that's what they say, but I like to think it's one of the things that they do to show off their masculinity of deciding who is the best drinker? Alcohol wise. I gave up on their silly "man" game but hey I'm still going to be there watching them get wasted and laughing my ass off, that's for sure. Alcohol is not cheap in Malaysia. LOL.

Take care everyone!

p/s: Backstreet Boy's new album, This Is Us, is going to be fantabulous!!!!

Backstreet Boys - This Is Us

Backstreet Boys 7th studio album,
This Is Us.

The new album is due for release on October 6, 2009.

Another 1 month to go but most of the songs is already leaked out on Youtube way before last month.

Being a massive BSB fan, I can't control myself from "preview" these songs.
*Yup, I'm that free, even though I got tons of assignments piling up here*

Overall, I really think it's a solid pop album.

OK, I'm bad with words, go have a listen yourself. LOL.
I can't find an interesting and suitable words to describe my feelings for the album, yet.

Plus, taste is so personal, I might dig it but you might not.

I love the fact the album have a great flow from the beginning til the end.

They kick it off with the great 1st single, Straight Through My Heart.

I don't know why the single is NOT shooting up the chart.

Great melodies, great vocal, sing-along chorus with the current most IT producer behind it. Hmm...

Anyway, here are some of the highlights for me.
(1st few round of listening)


Bye Bye Love

All of Your Life (You Need Love)

This Is Us - 2nd single

Actually I don't think there is any BAD songs at all in the album.

It's just that these are the few songs that stand out to me during the 1st few rounds.

Now is the part where some equally fantastic songs didn't make the cut.

All In My Head

How can you not love this song?
Everything sound so perfect. =/
One of my faves track.
But not in the album.


Helpless ft PitBull


Fallen Angel

I'm so gonna get the album. No doubt about that. XD
Thanks for reading ;-)
Have a wonderful week everyone!

EDIT: Click HERE for a comprehensive and great review on Backstreet Boys last 3 albums - Nevergone, Unbreakable and This Is Us by one my faves blogger J.Mensah. Great stuff. Go!

Listening to BSB brings back so many wonderful memories.
I'm lying on my uncle's bed, having his huge headphone - Sennheiser over my tiny head at that time and jamming to All I Have To Give and As Long As You Love Me while blasting the air-conditioner during a very hot and sunny afternoon after coming back from school! Ahhh, Bliss!

La Roux

My fave track of the La Roux self titled debut album!!

In For The Kill is effin eccentrically fab and enjoyable but my fave track is either a toss between I'm Not Your Toy and Fascination. As If By Magic is good too.

But since they decided to release I'm Not Your Toy as the 4th single. (YAY!)

I almost crapped in my pants. LOL.

Here is the quirky video.

Have no idea what the heck is all about but I'm lovin' this song.

La Roux - I'm Not Your Toy

I doubt it'll hit #1 though, LOL.

Oh, I think part of the reason why might be in love with this song is because of the lyrics.

It's all false love and affection,

You don't want me, you just like the attention.

I just checked it and I can totally understand why I have been unconsciously been in love with this track. LOL.

This post is dedicated to that particular someone, A~

I just found this,

Erik Hassle - In For The Kill (Cover)

Sigur Rós

This is my 2nd Sigur Rós posting.
I really can't get enough of them.
I really like the fact their song is emotion provoking.
I don't really get what are they singing but I guess that depends on your own interpretation. It's a good thing.

Sigur Rós - Ágætis byrjun

Another song that I really dig now is Glósóli. VIDEO
I can't seem to embed the original video though. Do check it out.
I really love their video. Very inspiring and calming.
Sometimes just the song is enough to provoke certain feelings and emotions.

Honestly Sweet

If you pick me a flower, I’ll wear it in my hair. I’ll stash little notes for you where you least expect them. I don’t have many firsts left..

but I’d like someone who I could offer all of my lasts. We’ll make history together. I’ll wait for you even if you’re late – and I won’t complain about it.

Kindness to cashiers, valets, waiters and maddeningly slow postal clerks who would try the patience of Gandhi is a must. I will feel safe and most at peace in your arms. When you’re counting aloud, I will try and mess you up. I find you magically delicious. I will let you be right when it doesn’t really matter. I’ll giggle when you show off and I know it’s just for me.

I’ll hold your coffee while you drive. I can build a fire without burning the house down. If you wash the car with me – I promise to wear a white t-shirt for you. I‘ll hide around corners and try to scare you in the middle of the night..

of course, I’ll end up scaring myself and you’ll have to calm me down. I can change a flat tire and my own oil. It’s the simple things you do that make me swoon the most. I love it when you sing to me. I’ll make you mickey mouse pancakes.

Sleeping in has a whole new meaning now that we’re doing it together. I’ll cover you up and kiss your forehead when you fall asleep watching tv. I won’t swear around your family or make you wear silly sweaters at my family’s during Christmas. I’ll grant you three wishes. I’ll make you laugh. I’ll stare in wonder with you at that hot chick with the great rack. I will marvel at your strength. I’ll take care of you when you’re sick. I give a kick ass massage.

I think it’s hot when you come home all dirty from playing or working hard. My heart will skip every time you walk through the door. My kisses will take your breath away – seriously. I’ll giggle if you leave your socks on in bed.

My quirks and oddities have been deemed ‘adorable’ and I will love you more everyday for all of yours. I’ll hold you when you need it. I will give you space when you need it. I will let you be you. You’ll sleep better when I’m next to you.

I’ll thank you every time you open a door for me. I’ll never give you shit in front of your friends. I won’t ever let you leave for work in the morning without your lunch and a passionate kiss. We can watch your movie first. I’ll clean the house perfectly every time your mom comes by. I like horror movies only when you’re with me and only as long as you hold me close.

I love when you pull me down to sit on your lap. I love it when you lay your head on my chest in bed. I can be ready (shower and all) in half an hour. I’ll look cute as hell in your shirt in the morning.

I can balance a checkbook. I can never turn down a challenge. I’ll fit perfectly in your arms. I’ll understand if you get jealous – and do my best to show you that you have no reason.

Hand-written love notes will get you laid every time. I can totally keep a secret. I’m pretty damn funny and will do anything to make you laugh. You will always look hot to me in the morning. I think it’s cute when you eat off my plate.

When you’re sleeping, I’ll try to stay quiet. I’ll call when I say I will. Treat me like a woman and I’ll treat you like a man. To clarify: I’m not looking for a savior, a fix-up project, or anything of that sort. I’m looking for a man who quite simply adds something extraordinary and special to my life. And I to him. A fair exchange, an amazing mind, body and soul connection and a place to build something magnificent.

Leona's BACK!!!

Check it out!

Leona Lewis - Happy

And I thought it would BLOW my mind away.
Not Bleeding Love or Better In Time.
Is it me or is this another Halo/Already Gone trilogy going on with Ryan Tedder?
Part III? No? Ah, maybe it's just me.

I don't fancy Beowulf, I think she's over-rated.
Kelly is good, the last album is good.
Leona, I'm a big fan (Spirit is fantabulous)
But I'm not excited with this, YET.
Definitely not a love-at-1st-listen song for me here.
I hope it grows on me soon. =S
Not Happy or sad, disappointed or anything.
I'm okay.

Youtube keep on deleting the song.
This is the last time I'm embeding this song.
Too much of a hassle.
I'm in LoVe with Happy.

Best Friend

I stole this from Ling's Facebook photo album.

Whoever who wrote that is totally inspiring.

Dedicate this to all my bestie,

I'm really grateful for having you in my life.

If we ever argue or If I did something stupid,

I hope you can forgive me.

And to all my bestie that I don't talk to these days,

I miss you.

So much.

You know I do.

Love y'all.
