A Hard Quest

To fall in love is easy, even to remain in it is not difficult; our human loneliness is cause enough. But it is a hard quest worth making to find a comrade through whose steady presence one becomes steadily the person one desires to be.

For You and You.

Hey y'all. *Ehem* Things have been taking a huge turn in my life these days, well, the internship officially gonna end next week, I know I am going to miss some of my colleagues even though we don't work together but yeah, the hang out session definitely make my internship a much better experience that I expected. Thanks to one of my sweeties too, my beloved partner in crime, SnowChin. LOL. Thank you for everything, I love you so much, you know that right? :D

Faves track all this week?

Bloc Party - Flux

I've been listening to lots of Bloc Party all this week.

Silent Alarm is still one of my faves album of all time.

Listening to this album reminds me of all the good old times.
3 of us, spending quality time together, late night chats in your car, random outing, random dinner + lunch, random movie session, random everything.
Thank you very much for everything.
I dedicate this post to the both of you :)

So Here We Are

Random #3

I am scared that my perception of you are all just in my mind. When you are not that perfect guy that I am waiting for, what can I fall into after knowing that?

I have prepared myself all this while just for you and in the end it's my silly heart who put me in this decision, can I blame my heart? No. My brain? No. Life? No.

I believe everything happened for a reason and I hope I can wise up after this knowing, sometimes it's just all in my mind. I think I am going crazy but who isn't in this fucked up world~

psst: Perfection are so over-rated =/

Loneliness is the human condition.

Have you ever think that loneliness and desperation can drive people to a point where everything else doesn't even matter anymore.

Would you be in a relationship even though you are sure that it's not right for you?

People give solitude too little credit these days,
when the truth is that the only fixed relationship in your life is the one you have with yourself.

Random #1

Love is a human flaw.

We become irrational when we're in love but yet this is what all human wants and needs to survive in this world.

I want to be in that flaw. I want to be irrational.

I've been far too "perfect" for such a long time. LOL.

I am ready for my flaw.

Songs That I Am Diggin' Right Now + Freebies

Hey peeps, how's it going? I really hate the fact that weekend do passes by effin quickly even when you are doing nothing.

Oh, I don't fancy SzeChuan cuisine at all, too much peppercorn and chilli, not much taste *meh* And for someone who love spicy food, that is kinda disappointing, gimme Indian curry or Malay spiciness anyday! :D *thought of posting the pic but since it's not that great, forget about it*

I'm listening to tons of new musix here but since I am that lazy, I am just going to highlight few interesting songs.

B.O.B - Nothing On You feat Bruno Mars

I believe I have profess my love for this song on my previous post. Read it below. I still can't get enough of it. This is like the summer breezy version of the supa sexy Lupe Fiasco - Superstar feat Matthew Santos. It's a compliment. BTW Bruno Mars are so so so smooooth. Loves.

Train - Hey, Soul Sister
I finally get this song after a few plays. OK, they do deserve all the attention but I am not too sure about their album. I don't have the urge to check it out. Wait, is it even out yet? This kinda reminds me of Jason Mraz's fab I'm Yours. It's the ukelele. I am sure.

Leighton Meester - Your Love Is A Drug
GG's Blair Waldorf 2nd single after the very sexy Somebody To Love feat Robin Thicke. Even though this might not be as sexayyy as the 1st single but it's very pop and radio friendly - a good combo, IMO if Bieber can get a hit with Baby (ugh!), this song deserve #1.

Joshua Radin - I'd Rather Be With You
This is a sweet sweet song. I love the simplicity of the guitar and the honest lyrics (ehem). I am still a sucker cheesy lyrics "Say you want the same thing too, Say you feel the way I do" But am I the only one who think this song is a tad too short? BTW don't you think he's a cutie? LOL.

Salem Al-Fakir - Keep On Walking
I don't get it. I don't get it why I like this song so much but that's the truth. Guess I am just going to accept it huh? Might be too cheesy for some but definitely palatable.

Salem Al-Fakir - It's Only You (Part II)
Another song by Salem, I am warming up to this fella, his tune are my kinda cup of tea, it's hard to ignore that. This is so beautifully melodic, it's hard for me not to love it. Why no one is buzzing about this fella? Hm...

Sophie Ellis-Bextor - Bittersweet
This song gets me in the mood for clubbin', but since it's never gonna get played here in Msia, why bother. Am I the only one who love the Freemasons Extended Mix more? Even if its 6 mins long but still oh-so-amaze-balls. It's all about the horns. God Bless the horns used in this song. Orgasmix porportion. I want to move my booty listening to this song. Oh, don't you just love the MV? It's time for her to shine. She deserves it.

Xtina - Not Myself Tonight
I warmed up to this. Lots of attitude, lots of character (tough and sassy!) but not really that amazing but still great even though the opening beat kinda reminds me of C. Brown's Forever (which is way superior) but heck, how can you deny Xtina when she sang this "The old me's gone I feel brand new, And if you don't like it fuck you!" That sums it up pretty damn fine.

Shayne Ward - Crash
When is he gonna release a new album? I'm tired of waiting. If most of the stuff in the new album is as good as this, it's going to be fantastic :D Still a sucka for power ballads.

Gramophonedzie - Why Don't You (Radio Edit)
Not my usual cup of tea, but this is actually quite good. Is it me or the beat are quite random, that's what I think but it work for me. A update to the old school style, similar to Mint Royale's Singin' in the Rain. Great~

Lady GaGa - Monster
It's no big secret that I'm a big fan of The Fame Mons†er. This gotta be one of my faves track by GaGa. I really wish this would be released as a single but I doubt it since Alejandro have been officially chosen as the 3rd single and I bet Dance In The Dark is up next. I see this is as the continuation of Just Dance, whatdya think? *He ate my heart~*

OK, it turns out I am not that lazy.

Have a great week ahead everyone.


BTW, Check out Ken and Jio's fantastic April playlist. *freebies!!*


Oh, I am seriously in love with Simon Curtis's 8Bit Heart album. This gotta be one of the best Pop album I've heard this year.

Highlights: Delusional, Diablo, Beat Drop, Joystick, Brainwash, Super Psycho Love, Fell In Love With An Android, Don't Wanna Be Alone and 8bit Heart. (OK, basically the whole album ;)

I do appreciate Delusional and Diablo more after listening to this album where they do belong to another class on their own. The Nintendo64 (I'm a fan) reference in Joystick is genius, the Bad Romance insert in Beat Drop got me hooked for a replay, LOL. Brainwash & Super Psycho Love are equally addictive and not too annoying with the auto-tune over usage. BTW, am I the only who love most of the songs intro? He is one talented fella that deserve all the buzz right now. Thanks Paul for everything.

Fans of pop, please give this exquisite classy pop/electropop album a listen, you will not be disappointed. And you might thought freebies usually sucks. Hah, this is so not the case. I promise. Check out these brilliant reviews of this album from Paul, Nikki, Mel, & Jio.

Click here to download 8Bit Heart for free! :) *Some major recording company must be firing someone for not signing him, dumb dumb*

Thought of putting this into a separate post but nahhhhhh~

I'm in Love


Wait, it's a good kind of reaction here.

Please, bear with me. LOL.

It's been so long I never got so excited with a song. I usually need some time to get warm with songs especially by new artist, god knows how long it took me to like Lady Antebellum's Need You Now but that's another story.

I want to announce that I am effin' in LOVE with this song right now.

B.O.B - Nothing On You feat Bruno Mars

This song actually makes me smile on my way to work this morning. It's a good thing, it's hard to find a song that actually brighten up my day :)

Best thing ever happened to me all this week :D

Little Rules of Action

1. Don’t over think
. Too much thinking often results in getting stuck, in going in circles. Some thinking is good — it’s good to have a clear picture of where you’re going or why you’re doing this — but don’t get stuck thinking. Just do.

2. Just start. All the planning in the world will get you nowhere. You need to take that first step, no matter how small or how shaky. My rule for motivating myself to run is: Just lace up your shoes and get out the door. The rest takes care of itself.

3. Forget perfection. Perfectionism is the enemy of action. Kill it, immediately. You can’t let perfect stop you from doing. You can turn a bad draft into a good one, but you can’t turn no draft into a good draft. So get going.

4. Don’t mistake motion for action. A common mistake. A fury of activity doesn’t mean you’re doing anything. When you find yourself moving too quickly, doing too many things at once, this is a good reminder to stop. Slow down. Focus.

5. Focus on the important actions. Clear the distractions. Pick the one most important thing you must do today, and focus on that. Exclusively. When you’re done with that, repeat the process.

6. Move slowly, consciously. Be deliberate. Action doesn’t need to be done fast. In fact, that often leads to mistakes, and while perfection isn’t at all necessary, neither is making a ridiculous amount of mistakes that could be avoided with a bit of consciousness.

7. Take small steps. Biting off more than you can chew will kill the action. Maybe because of choking, I dunno. But small steps always works. Little tiny blows that will eventually break down that mountain. And each step is a victory, that will compel you to further victories.

8. Negative thinking gets you nowhere. Seriously, stop doing that. Self doubt? The urge to quit? Telling yourself that it’s OK to be distracted and that you can always get to it later? Squash those thoughts. Well, OK, you can be distracted for a little bit, but you get the idea. Positive thinking, as corny as it sounds, really works. It’s self-talk, and what we tell ourselves has a funny habit of turning into reality.

9. Meetings aren’t action. This is a common mistake in management. They hold meetings to get things done. Meetings, unfortunately, almost always get in the way of actual doing. Stop holding those meetings!

10. Talking (usually) isn’t action. Well, unless the action you need to take is a presentation or speech or something. Or you’re a television broadcaster. But usually, talking is just talking. Communication is necessary, but don’t mistake it for actual action.

11. Planning isn’t action. Sure, you need to plan. Do it, so you’re clear about what you’re doing. Just do it quickly, and get to the actual action as quickly as you can.

12. Reading about it isn’t action. You’re reading an article about action. Ironic, I know. But let this be the last one. Now get to work!

13. Sometimes, inaction is better. This might be the most ironic thing on the list, but really, if you find yourself spinning your wheels, or you find you’re doing more harm than good, rethink whether the action is even necessary. Or better yet, do this from the beginning — is it necessary? Only do the action if it is.

Fembot vs. Dragon

Hi everyone~ How's it going? I've been neglecting this blog for some time now. My bad, been too busy with my internship which is going to end soon, another 3 more weeks perhaps? I know I am going to miss some of my colleagues, you spend months to get to know someone and when you are feeling comfy with them, you realized it's time for you to leave. It sucks. I don't want to rant about that here, but yeah, why does it happen every time? :( *there's this cute doctor but that's another story another time*

Plus, this weekend and last weekend was all about the Qingming Festival in my family. Busy cleaning my ancestors' graves. Busy busy period for mua. It's all good though :))

Let's get down to musix~

I've been warming up to Alex Gardner's I'm Not Mad which I totally adore right now, it's all about the voice. Lovesit. Here's the video.

The supposedly leaked track from Leona~ Not exactly amazing but still great~ *at least I am not pressing next half way through*
Leona Lewis - Scene of the Crime

Robyn's back with Fembot! This is pretty amazing. Didn't really fall in love with it during the 1st few rounds but it grows on me. *click on the title for the song*

Oopsy Daisy was catchy but it didn't last that much of an impression but the new song from Chipmunk really got my attention, plus this is the only song from Esmee Denters aka Justin Timberlake protege that I like. She finally gets it right and it's not even her song~ *sorry*
Chipmunk - Until You Were Gone feat. Esmee Denters

Well, I think that's it from me. I am too tired *mentally* to come up with something funny~ Blahhhhhh~ Take care everyone and have a wonderful weekend.

BTW, How To Train Your Dragon 3D is amazing. Best movie I've watch this year~ I think the storyline is better than Avatar~ No kidding :)
