Song & Lyrics: Ghost by Ella Henderson

Hello!!!

Hari ni nak share lirik dan lagu daripada Ella Henderson. Ella Henderson ni merupakan bekas peserta The X Factor UK pada tahun 2012. Dia memang merupakan peserta favorite aku bersama boyband Union J. Tetapi Ella tersingkir semasa pusingan Top 6 which is so ridiculous for someone like her. But Simon Cowell saw her potential dan still signed Ella untuk join company dia, Syco. 


So ini adalah single pertama Ella yang berjudul Ghost. Lagu dia memang catchy. Dan Ella juga memiliki bakat menulis lagu yang sangat bagus. Aku suka sangat dengan lirik dia. 

Ella Henderson - Ghost


I keep going to the river to pray
Cos I need, something that can wash all the pain
And at most, I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you it keeps me awake

My friends had you figured out
Yeah they saw what’s inside of you
Trying to hide in another you
But your evil is coming through

These guys sitting in the wall
They watch every move I make
Bright light living in the shade
You go hard makes the spirit shake 

I had to go through hell to prove I'm not insane
Had to meet the devil just to know his name
And that's where my love was burning
Yeah it’s still burning 

I keep going to the river to pray
Cos I need, something that can wash all the pain
And at most, I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you it keeps me awake(x2)

Each time that I think you go
I turn around and you’re creeping in
And I let you under my skin
Cos I love living innocent

Boy you never told me
True love was going to hurt
True pain that I don’t deserve
Truth is that I never learn 

I keep going to the river to pray
Cos I need, something that can wash all the pain
And at most, I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you it keeps me awake(x2)

Give up the ghost, Give up the ghost, Give up the ghost, Stop the haunting baby 
Give up the ghost, Give up the ghost, Give up the ghost, No more haunting baby

I keep going to the river 

I keep going to the river to pray
Cos I need, something that can wash all the pain
And at most, I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you it keeps me awake(x2)

Makan-Makan

Hello!!!

Esok nak balik kampung. Dan buat pertama kali aku akan balik ke kampung dengan adik aku yang number 3 aka Abang Chik. Adik aku ni sambung study di Saito College. Aku kalau boleh nak dia sambung IPTA tetapi dah tu pilihan dia.. Nak buat macam mana walaupun result dia memang layak pun masuk IPTA. Tapi aku still juga apply IPTA in case dia tukar fikiran. 

Hari ni just nak share promosi-promosi baru di restaurant yang ada di Malaysia ni. Ada yang aku dah try dan ada juga yang aku masih belum try. 

Red Pepper Chicken at The Chicken Rice Shop


Dah 2 kali aku makan menu ni. Aku suka try menu-menu baru yang ada di TCRS ni. Dahlah aku ni hantu ayam. So apa-apa je yang ada ayam, memang no problem bagi aku. Red Pepper Chicken ni agak pedas juga bagi standard aku yang tak tahan pedas. Tapi sebab rasanya yang sedap, aku redha je lah. 


Grilled Chicken Burger (GCB) at McDonalds


GCB is back!!! Yang ni memang favorite aku. Selain dari Teriyaki Burger di McD aku paling suka GCB. Rasa pattynya yang sangat juicy memang boleh melelehkan air liur aku. Harap2 lama lah sikit tempoh GCB ni sebab aku baru makan sekali. 


Zinger Reloaded at KFC

  
Suka sangat dengan Zinger Reloaded, the upgraded version of original Zinger Burger. Dah cuba sekali dan ingin cuba lagi. 


Bandung Soya at Mr. Bean



Yang pink color tu adalah Bandung Soya yang sememangnya menjadi favorite aku sekarang. Kalau singgah je Mr. Bean, memang itulah yang aku order. Yang bulat tu nama dia soya pancake. Ada macam-macam perisa. Aku punya tu, coklat. Sedap. 


Capri's Wholesome Platters at Capricciosa


Memang nampak wholesome especially to those yang tak boleh buat pilihan macam aku ni. Aku memang suka pergi Capricciosa ni. Pasta dia memang superb. Antara menu yang paling best bagi aku adalah Pasta Seafood Pomodoro, Calamari Fritto, Homemade Spicy Meatballs dan macam2 lagi ada. Platters ni sesuai untuk dua orang. Well kalau yang jenis tak suka makan, tiga orang pun boleh. Untuk aku? Sorang pun boleh habis.. Huhu..

Movie Review: Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Hello!!!


Selepas Thor yang kedua baru-baru ni, aku memang menantikan filem Captain America ini. Captain America pun memang salah satu Superhero kegemaran aku. So bila keluar je filem yang kedua ini, memang aku tak lepaskan peluang untuk menonton filem ini.


Untuk filem ini, Captain America telah diserang hendap oleh seorang penjahat yang digelar sebagai Winter Soldier ketika menjalankan satu misi. Sementara itu, Apabila, Nick Fury telah meninggal dunia akibat diserang oleh Winter Soldier, Captain America dibantu oleh Black Widow dan Falcon berusaha untuk mencari punca sebenar masalah yang berlaku. Captain America berjaya mendapat tahu bahawa Winter Soldier adalah kawan baiknya, Bucky Barnes yang otaknya telah dibasuh oleh satu organisasi yang cuba untuk memusnahkan S.H.I.E.L.D.


Aku suka dengan jalan cerita filem ini. Chris Evans memang kelihatan sangat sesuai dengan wataknya sebagai Captain America. Tetapi aku paling suka dengan watak Black Widow yang dilakonkan oleh Scarlett Johansson. Sangat seksi bagi aku. Aku rasa Black Widow deserved a movie for herself. Aku juga suka dengan watak Agent 13 aka Sharon Carter yang akan menjadi kekasih kepada Captain America. Walaupun watak dia tak banyak sangat, Emily VanCamp masih lagi meninggalkan impak yang mendalam bagi aku.

Movie Review: Mr Peabody & Sherman

Hello!!!


Aku tak plan pun nak tengok cerita 'Mr Peabody & Sherman' ni. Even trailer dia pun nampak tak menarik. Tetapi sebab boring sangat, aku pergi tengok cerita apa yang tengah tayang kat pawagam. Tiada pilihan sangat so aku terpaksa tengok 'Mr Peabody & Sherman. 


Cerita ini mengisahkan Mr Peabody. merupakan anjing yang paling pintar di dalam dunia. Suatu hari Mr Peabody telah menemui seorang bayi yang telah dibuang dan membuat keputusan untuk mengambilnya sebagai anak angkat. Walaupun mendapat tentangan manusia pada mulanya, dia berjaya mengambil bayi yang dinamakan Sherman sebagai anak angkatnya. Beberapa tahun telah berlalu dan Sherman mula bersekolah. Sherman telah diejek oleh seorang budak perempuan bernama Penny. Mereka berdua telah bergaduh dan Mr Peabody telah dipanggil ke sekolah. Mr Peabody menjemput ibu bapa Penny ke rumah untuk berbincang dengan mereka. Masalah timbul apabila Sherman dan Penny telah menggunakan mesin masa yang telah dicipta oleh Mr Peabody. 


Aku terkejut sangat sebab cerita ini sangat menarik. Aku suka sangat dengan nilai kekeluargaan yang ada dalam filem ini. Mesej untuk kita berkasih sayang di antara satu sama lain berjaya disampaikan. Tapi sayang, promosi untuk filem ini agak lemah sedikit. Tak ramai yang tahu kewujudan filem animasi ini. Aku suka dengan selitan pasal peristiwa dan tempat-tempat bersejarah yang ada di dalam plot cerita ini. Overall, cerita ini sangat menghiburkan aku.

American Idol Season 13 - Top 6 Live Show

Hello!!!

This week the contestants will sing 2 songs and the theme are Rock N Roll & Country. Here are my recap for this week live show. 

1. Jena Irene (Barracuda by Heart & So Small by Carrie Underwood)

~ I like Barracuda but there's nothing really special about it. I love her energy on stage but we all knew that. Meanwhile, So Small really blew me away. I totally love the arrangement. It suited her vocal. B+ & A.

2. Sam Woolf (It's Time by Imagine Dragons & You're Still The One by Shania Twain)

~ I think Sam has a good week. I like his version for It's Time. It's very refreshing. But You're Still The One is one of my favorite performances this week. It's very tender and I love to see this side of him. B+ & A.

3. C.J. Harris (American Woman by The Guess Who & Whatever It Is by Zac Brown Band)

~ I'm not sure which performance I dislike more. I think there's no way he's going to survive the elimination this week. C & C.

4. Alex Preston (Animal by Kings of Leon & Always On My Mind by Gwen McCrae)

~ His first performance was one of his worst in this competition. I love the beginning but when the band came in, Alex was lost. But Alex redeemed himself with his second performance. Always On My Mind was so beautiful. B- & A. 

5. Caleb Johnson (Sting Me by The Black Crowes & Undo It by Carrie Underwood)

~ Not really a fan of Sting Me. It's typical Caleb's performance. I love Undo It more. He rocked the stage. It's totally different from Carrie's version. B & A-.

6. Jessica Meuse (Somebody To Love by Jefferson Airplane & Jolene by Dolly Parton)

~ I think Jess has a very solid voice. But I need her to pick unexpected songs for her next time and sing in her own way. I think that's a better strategy for her. B+ & A-.

Here is my ranking for this week

1. Alex Preston - Always On My Mind: A
2. Sam Woolf - You're Still The One: A
3. Jena Irene - So Small: A
4. Jessica Meuse - Jolene: A-
5. Caleb Johnson - Undo It: A-
6. Jena Irene - Barracuda: B+
7. Jessica Meuse - Somebody To Love: B+
8. Sam Woolf - It's Time: B
9. Caleb Johnson - Sting Me: B
10. Alex Preston - Animal: B-
11. CJ Harris - American Woman: C
12. CJ Harris - Whatever It Is: C

Results

Bottom 2: CJ Harris & Jessica Meuse

Eliminated: CJ Harris

Totally expected this. Next week is going to be tough. I love the remaining five. The theme next week is going to be America's Choice for both songs. 

The Voice Season 6 - Top 12 Live Show

Hello


Overall, I think The Voice has better finalists than American Idol this season. I love the diversity in the Top 12. Here is my recap on what happened this week. 

1. Bria Kelly (Rolling in the Deep by Adele)

~ I'm not really a fan of the arrangement. It's too loud. I love that she didn't sing it like Adele but the arrangement didn't suit the song at all. And Bria needs to tone down the scream. More singing and less screaming. B

2. Delvin Choice (Unchained Melody by The Righteous Brothers)

~ I can't believe someone still picked this song. It's so boring and even Delvin tried to make the song more current with his runs, it just didn't work out well. C

3. Dani Moz (Just Give Me A Reason by Pink)

~ Another Pink's song from her. I don't like this route for her. I think she's much better with singer/songwriter route than this pop/rock thing. She did a good job but a little bit messy at the end. I'm not sure if this performance able to save her this week. B

4. Audra McLaughlin (Angel of the Morning by Juice Newton)

~ Audra picked a good song for her. Beautiful vocal performance from her. I really like this. A-

5. T.J. Wilkins (Waiting on the World to Change by John Mayer)

~ At least T.J. picked a current song for him this week. But this is so unforgettable. I'm not sure if it's enough to get him through to next week. B-

6. Christina Grimmie (Dark Horse by Katy Perry)

~ Christina nailed it again this week. I love her version. She has a very thin voice but her technical skill and the way she controlled it make her tone sounds so pleasant. She's definitely the one to beat. A

7. Sisaundra Lewis (Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me by Elton John)

~ I need Sisaundra to pick the better song for her next week cause this one just average for me. Good vocal but that's it. She's so much better than this. B

8. Kristen Merlin (Stay by Sugarland)

~ I'm not going to touch on the technical problem. I think she nailed it. She manage to leave impact with her performance and she needs that impact this week. Beautiful vocal. I love this. A

9. Kat Perkins (Magic Man by Heart)

~ I love Kat but this performance was so average for me. I didn't like the song choice. But I do love her energy and the way she communicate with the audience. B

10. Jake Barker (Anymore by Travis Tritt)

~ I'm not so sure with the song choice. A little bit too generic this week. He needs a better song next week. This performance was just okay for me. I think he can do better. B

11. Tess Boyer (I'll Be There For You by Bon Jovi)

~ Tess is a great singer and I think her performance is quite strong but this song? I didn't like it. I don't think people want to download this song on Itunes. B+

12. Josh Kaufman (Stay With Me by Sam Smith)

~ Currently, this is one of my songs and Josh did so well. Perfect song choice for him. I think he can win this competition. He just proved that Adam made a stupid mistake to choose Delvin over him. A

Here is my ranking for this week.

1. Christina Grimmie: A
2. Josh Kaufman: A
3. Kristen Merlin: A
4. Audra McLaughlin: A-
5. Tess Boyer: B-
6. Sisaundra Lewis: B
7. Jake Worthington: B
8. Dani Moz: B
9. Bria Kelly: B
10. Kat Perkins: B
11. T.J Wilkins: B-
12. Delvin Choice: C

Results:

Bottom 3: Dani Moz, T.J Wilkins & Tess Boyer

Instant Save: Tess Boyer

Eliminated: T.J. Wilkins & Dani Moz

I expected to see Tess in the bottom 3 but I'm still surprised with the result. She needs a better song choice next week.

Song & Lyrics: Stay With Me by Sam Smith

Hello!!



First time dengar lagu 'Stay With Me' ni, aku terus jatuh cinta. Terutama sekali vokal penyanyi ni. Memang A class. Sam Smith merupakan penyanyi daripada UK. Album sulung beliau akan keluar pada bulan May. Dia dah releasekan beberapa lagu tapi yang paling aku minat adalah lagu 'Stay With Me'. 


Stay With Me by Sam Smith

Guess it's true,
I'm not good at a one night stand
But I still need love 'cause I'm just a man
These nights never seem to go to plan
I don't want you to leave,
Will you hold my HAND?

Oh, won't you STAY with ME
'Cause you're all I NEED
This ain't LOVE, it's clear to see
But darling, STAY with ME

Why am I so emotional?!
No it's not a good look, gain some self control
Deep down I know this never works
But you could lay with me,
So it doesn't HURT

Oh, won't you STAY with ME
'Cause you're all I NEED
This ain't LOVE, it's clear to see
But darling, STAY with ME

Oooh oh ooh oooh ooooh oh
Oooh oh ooh oooh ooooh oh

Oh, won't you STAY with ME
'Cause you're all I NEED
This ain't LOVE, it's clear to see
But darling, STAY with ME
(x2)

The Voice Season 6 - Playoffs (Top 20)

Hello!!!

It's time for the Playoffs. This is the last round before the live show next week. Judges will narrow their team from 5 to only 3 artistes. Here are the Top 3 for each team

Team Blake


Sisaundra Lewis, Jake Worthington & Audra McLaughlin

~ I think Blake made a right decision even though I really want to see Madilyn in the Top 3. Overall, Blake has a very strong team. Sisaundra isn't a typical Team Blake's member. Jake is so likeable while Audra has such an angelic vocal. 


Team Shakira


Kristen Merlin, Dani Moz & Tess Boyer

~ I thought Team Shakira was going to be the weakest team this season but I was wrong. She has 3 powerhouse vocalists in her team. Tess Boyer has the strongest vocal this season. Dani Moz really shocked me with her performance and Kristen, I love her tone so much. And she's different. I don't think I ever see a country singer like her. 


Team Adam


Kat Perkins, Delvin Choice & Christina Grimmie

~ Adam is so lucky to have Christina in his team. I'm not sure with the other two choices. I was so surprised when he didn't picked Jake Barker. I love Jake's performance this week. Except for Christina, I don't think Kat & Delvin will last long in this competition. 


Team Usher


~ To me, Usher made a wrong decision this week. His team isn't as stronger as before now. I love Josh performance. And Bria was just okay for me but I totally get when he picked her. But T.J? Over Stevie Jo & Melissa. So wrong. There's nothing unique with T.J. He's definitely going to lost T.J next week. 

Here is my overall ranking for this season Top 12. 

1. Tess Boyer (Team Shakira)
2. Jake Worthington (Team Blake)
3. Christina Grimmie (Team Adam)
4. Dani Moz (Team Shakira)
5. Sisaundra Lewis (Team Blake)
6. Josh Kauffman (Team Usher)
7. Audra McLaughlin (Team Blake)
8. Bria Kelly (Team Usher)
9. Kristen Merlin (Team Shakira)
10. Kat Perkins (Team Adam)
11. Delvin Choice (Team Adam) 
12. TJ Wilkins (Team Usher)

As for the Team Ranking

1. Team Blake & Shakira (Tied)
3. Team Adam
4. Team Usher

American Idol Season 13 - Top 7 Live Show

Hello!!!

This week the theme is Competitor's pick. Every contestants will receive 6 songs from the other 6 competitors and he/she needs to pick one song from that 6 songs. Here are my recap. 

1. Caleb Johnson (Family Tree by Kings of Leon)

~ It's a very solid performance. But after last week, this performance is a little bit too safe for me. But still, he should be okay this round. B+

2. Jessica Meuse (Gunpowder & Lead by Miranda Lambert)

~ Why she always performed at the first half of the show? This performance was actually good but the fact that the judges were trying too much to critique her performance made me felt so bad at her. It wasn't a great performance but it wasn't that bad either. B+

3. C.J Harris (Gravity by John Mayer)

~ This performance was on the same level with Jessica for me but the judges love this and hate Jessica. I don't get that. It felt like they judged Jessica on different level. But this is definitely one of CJ's better performance. B+

4. Dexter Roberts (Muckalee Creek Water by Luke Bryan)

~ What a weird song title. And again, Dexter was such a karaoke/bar singer. I don't know what to say if he survive again this week. C

5. Alex Preston (The A Team by Ed Sheeran)

~ Great performance. Alex is ready to be an artist for me. I love the tenderness in his voice. I love Ed Sheeran but I love Alex's version more. Great performance. A

6. Sam Woolf (Sail Away by David Gray)

~ I saw improvements from Sam. I can feel it. Sam is still young. I think he needs a little bit time to connect to the song. This is one of my favorite performance this week. A-

7. Jene Irene (Creep by Radiohead)

~ Jena nailed it this week. She's on different level this round. I love the fact that she stays with the piano this week. Gorgeous vocal. Definitely the performance of the season so far. A+

Much better from the disaster last week. Here is my ranking for this week;

1. Jena Irene: A+
2. Alex Preston: A
3. Sam Woolf: A-
4. Jessica Meuse: B+
5. CJ Harris: B+
6. Caleb Johnson: B+
7. Dexter Roberts: C

Bottom 2: Jessica Meuse & Dexter Roberts

Eliminated: Dexter Roberts

Thank you. Finally he's gone. I'm glad Jessica was saved. So undeservedly in the bottom 2. Next week the theme is Country and Rock n Roll. Two songs. 

American Idol Season 13 - Top 8 Redux Live Show

Hello!!!

Still Top 8!!!. Sam was saved last week and the theme for this week is Songs from the 80's. I don't think this is going to be my favorite week. But here are my recap for this week show. 

1. Jena Irene (I Love Rock n Roll by Joan Jett)

~ I love the intro. So beautiful. But then she stand up and it become average to me. Nothing really interesting me about this song choice. I love Jena but this isn't one of her best. B

2. Dexter Roberts (Keep You Hand To Yourself by Georgia Satellites)

~ This performance is too karaoke-ish to me. I don't like it. Nothing memorable at all unlike his performance last week. C

3. Malaya Watson (Through The Fire by Chaka Khan)

~ Siobhan Magnus (Season 9) sing this song before and it was her weakest performance. I don't think this song is a good choice for Malaya. She struggled on some notes. After a streak of good performances, this one just didn't work for me. C

4. Jessica Meuse (Call Me by Blondie)

~ I think the vocal is solid but what I didn't like from this performance is her energy and stage presence. She didn't give any attitude and she walked around the stage like she's in pageant. It's an average performance for me. B

5. Sam Woolf (Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper)

~ I like this song choice for Sam. The arrangement is very interesting but I saw this kinda of arrangement before. But overall much better from what we saw from him lately. B+

6. Alex Preston (Every Breath You Take by The Police)

~ Like this performance but I want him to 'attack' more with this song. It's too laid back for me. But I love his vocal. Very dynamic. B+

7. C.J. Harris (Free Falling by Tom Petty)

~ This is so out of tune. I think the judges were too soft on him. C.J has a very beautiful tone but I didn't hear that in this performance. C-

8. Caleb Johnson (Faithfully by Journey)

~ Caleb is a clear winner this week. I love his vocal. The way he controls his vocal is so great. I'm glad that he toned it down the loudness in his performance. A

Overall, not a great week. I hate the theme. I'm not against 80's music but the song choice for 80's were always terrible. Here are my ranking

1. Caleb Johnson: A
2. Alex Preston: B+
3. Sam Woolf: B+
4. Jena Irene: B
5. Jessica Meuse: B
6. Dexter Roberts: C
7. Malaya Watson: C
8. C.J. Harris: C-

Bottom 2: C.J Harris & Malaya Watson

Eliminated: Malaya Watson

Wow.. I knew she's in danger but still I think she's going to be safe. It's not fair cause Malaya has lot of great performances compared to CJ, Dexter and even Sam. Malaya grown on me a lot in this competition. I didn't like her at first but she continued to impress me. 

Next week theme is Competitor's Pick. So, sabotage anyone?

Let It Go - Frozen 'Behind The Mic' 25 Languages Version

Salam Ahad!!! 

Hari ni aku bergotong royong untuk mengemaskan pusat aktiviti yang agak lama jugak tidak dicuci. So balik jer memang letih. Ingat nak tidur tetapi godaan internet sangat kuat. So sedang asyik surf Youtube, terjumpa video ni. Sangat cool bagi aku. 

Aku suka sangat dengan lagu Let It Go. Aku pernah dengar yang multi-language version before tapi wajah penyanyi-penyanyi tidak ditonjolkan. Tapi video 'Behind the Mic' ni ada tunjuk muka penyanyi-penyanyi negara lain. Malaysia of courselah diwakili oleh Marsha. 

Ini video yang dimaksudkan. Tak sangka jugak banyak language yang aku tak tahu kewujudannya. 


Song & Lyrics: I Will Never Let You Down by Rita Ora


Sebelum ni aku pernah dengar lagu Rita Ora tetapi tak adalah lagu yang minat betul-betul. Setakat dengar je. Bagi aku muzik Rita terlalu urban untuk aku. Tetapi aku suka sangat dengan lagu baru daripada Rita Ora. Judulnya ialah I Will Never Let You Down. Sangat catchy dan lain dari lagu-lagu dia before. Beat dia sangat catchy. So hari ni just nak berkongsi lirik lagu ini dengan korang semua. 

Rita Ora ~ I Will Never Let You Down


Tell me baby what we gonna do
I'll make it easy got a lot to lose,
Watch the sunlight coming through
Open the window let it shine on you,

Cos I've been sick and working all week
And I've been doing just fine,
You've been tired of watching me
Forgot to have a good time,
Boy
You can't take it all these spaces
Never keeping it real,

I know exactly how you feel

When you say you've had enough
and you might just give it up,
Oh Ooh
I Will Never Let You Down

When you're feeling alone in love
I'll be what you're dreaming of,
Oh Ooh
I Will Never Let You Down

Oh Ooh
I Will Never Let You Down
Oh Ooh
I Will Never Let You Down

There's a million ways to go
Don't be embarrassed if you lose control,
On the rooftop now they know
Your body's frozen and you've lost your soul,

Cos I've been sick and working all week
And I've been doing just fine,
Hey
You've been tired of watching me
Forgot to have a good time,
Boy
You can't take it all these spaces
Never keeping it real,

I know exactly how you feel

When you say you've had enough
and you might just give it up,
Oh Ooh
I Will Never Let You Down

When you're feeling low on love
I'll be what you're dreaming of,
Oh Ooh
I Will Never Let You Down

Oh Ooh
I Will Never Let You Down

Oh Ooh
I Will Never Let You Down

Let me take you where you never go
Have a little fun it's the only way we know,
Let me show you what you never see
You know how to love only when you're holding me,

Ohh

When you say you've had enough
and you might just give it up,
Oh Ooh
I Will Never Let You Down

When you're feeling alone on love
I'll be what you're dreaming of,
Oh Ooh
I Will Never Let You Down

When you say you've had enough
and you might just give it up,
Oh Ooh
I Will Never Let You Down

When you're feeling alone on love
I'll be what you're dreaming of,

TV SHOW

Shameless (Season 4)


Shameless merupakan siri tv yang paling underrated bagi aku. Lakonan dan jalan cerita especially this season sungguh bagus. Totally addicted to this show. 

SKIN CARE

Tekstur dia sangat ringan. Aku paling tak suka pakai something yang berminyak kat muka. Rasa tak selesa. Tapi cream ni lain even bau dia pun best. Gabungan Aloe Vera & Cherry Winter yang dapat melindungi kulit dari cuaca panas. 

BODY WASH

St Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter Moisturizing Body Wash


Bau dia sangat creamy and buttery. Aku memang suka sangat. First time beli body wash dari brand St Ives. Harga dia pun sangat berpatutan. Around RM 14 to RM 15. Even my roomie yang tak suka beli barang yang sama pun beli body wash ni untuk dia lepas tengok aku guna yang ini. 

BOOK

I've Got Your Number by Sophia Kinsella


Bahan bacaan yang sangat ringan. Aku memang suka dengan karya Sophia Kinsella. Ada romance, ada comedy. Perfect untuk dibaca bila tengah blur and stress.

Asia's Next Top Model Cycle 2 - And The Winner Is...


Sheena!!!!

I'm so happy for her. She deserved the title so much. Puak-puak Filipina sekarang tengah mengamuk sebab dua peserta Filipina, Jodilly & Katarina kalah kepada Sheena. Banyak mesej-mesej berunsur penghinaan dan perkauman yang dikongsi di media sosial seperti Facebook & Twitter. Tak faham aku dengan manusia. Sebab pertandingan macam ni pun boleh mengamuk. Huhu

Here are some of the Sheena's amazing body of works in this competition. 






Blog Makeover

Hello!!!

Setelah setahun menggunakan template yang sama, entah kenapa hari ni tangan aku gatal sangat nak menukar template yang baru. Template yang dulu aku download kat satu website, tapi seriously dah lupa kat mana. Kali ni aku just guna template yang ada kat blogger jer. Malas nak meneroka mencari template yang baru. 

Kalau dulu blog aku ni didominasi dengan warna purple, kali ni aku pilih orange pulak. Kenapa orange? Entahlah aku pun tak tahu.. Template ni je yang aku berkenan. So touch up sana, touch up sini.. Siap.. Konsep aku kali ini simple jer.. See... Banner pun aku takde.. Haha.. Aku memang pemalas. 

Start minggu ni jugak, jadual cuti aku bertukar dari Khamis kepada Rabu. So agak weird sikit bila hari Rabu ada di rumah. Mungkin disebabkan itu juga aku terlebih rajin hari ni nak makeover blog.. 

Okaylah.. Harap template ni akan berkekalan... Ciao!!!

The Voice Season 6 - Battle Rounds Part 2 (Top 20)

Hello!!!

Another Battle Round? When I heard about another battle round, I was like no!!! Because I really want to see them sing solo. I like the Knockout Round format more than Battle Round Part 2. Here are the current team members from every team. 

Team Adam


 


~ Adam picked Christina, Delvin, Jake & Kat as the winners from the battle and stole Morgan from Team Usher. It's a very solid team. The battles were evenly matched. I was surprised with Kat. I personally love Dawn & Hawkes but I've to agree with Adam's decision because Kat did better than D&H. I also surprised that Adam chose to let go Josh over Delvin but I get it that he want diversity in his team. I was so happy when he stole Morgan cause I really like the raspy-ness in his voice. As for my Top 3 picks from Team Adam, I'm going with Christina Grimmie, Jake Barker & Morgan Wallen with Kat Perkins as fourth choice. 

Team Blake



 

~ Blake picked Audra, Jake W, Ryan & Sisaundra as the winners from the battles and stole Madilyn from Team Usher. I really like Jake W. I think he's better than the other country singers in the reality tv right now (Dexter, CJ & Ben from American Idol). I also love Madilyn's tone so much. Audra is a very traditional country singer. Reminds me of Miranda Lambert and also Carrie Underwood's style. Sisaundra.. I like her but I'm not sure how she's going to fit the current music industry. Ryan has great voice but he's not really memorable. For my Top 3, I pick Jake Worthington, Madilyn Paige & Sisaundra Lewis with Audra as my fourth choice. 

Team Shakira




~ Shakira picked Dani, Deja, Kristen & Patrick as the winners from the battles and stole Tess from Team Blake. Firstly, no Clarissa.. Wow. I totally get that Dani performed better than Clarissa but at the same time I think Clarissa is Shakira's best shot to win The Voice. Deja was good but too young. Kristen & Patrick were not really memorable during their battles. Fortunately for Shakira, she stole a very strong female singer, Tess Boyer. This girl is so good. I think she has better shot to make it to the final 3 with Team Shakira over the other teams. So I'm glad that she picked Shakira as her new mentor. My Top 3 picks are Tess, Dani & Deja with Kristen as my fourth choice. 

Team Usher




~ Usher picked Bria, Melissa, Stevie Jo & T.J. as the winners from the battles and stole Josh from Team Adam. Usher still has some of the best singer in his team. I don't really get T.J.'s style but the other 4 are really strong singers for me. Bria really needs a better song for her vocal because for the second time in a row she was overshadowed by her opponents (Tess in Battle 1 & Madilyn in Battle 2). Usher still has some faith on her. Melissa is very dynamic. I love her. Stevie Jo & Josh are kinda similar to me. I mean their style. Both of them have a very good contemporary R&B choice. T.J is a R&B singer too but he is more traditional and old-fashioned to me. My Top 3 are Bria, Melissa & Stevie Jo with Josh as my fourth choice. 

Here are some of the artist that we lost from Battle Round Part 2 who I think should go through to the Playoff Round




~ I think these 5 deserved another chance. Since Chris Martin was such a great mentor why don't he picks these 5 to be on his team. Lol.. Just my wishful thinking. I'll see you after the Playoffs!!!
