Song & Lyrics: Scarecrow by Alex & Sierra

Hello!!!


Semalam, lirik video untuk debut single dari Alex & Sierra telah dilancarkan di Youtube. I'm such a huge fan of them since The X Factor lagi and they didn't let me down with their first single. I played this song countless times now. Not sure when this song will be available on Itunes and Spotify but here is the song and lyrics for that beautiful song. 


Scarecrow by Alex & Sierra

I'm standin' still without you
In the emptiest of fields
Wish that I could say what's on my mind

The straw that fills your heart so you never have to feel
You say that you just need a little time

Days like these I bury my each and every word
Hide them underneath these lonely trees

The harvest moon is wicked
I know that you've been hurt
But, I swear I'm here for good I'll never leave

This is where it starts tonight
If you open up your heart tonight

You're staring out the window
And I’m out here in the street
You stand there like a scarecrow
And I’m begging you to speak
You used to be my solid ground
Now I'm drowning in the sea
I just wanna believe in you and me
I just wanna believe in you and me

Hey yeah, hey..., hey yeah, hey...

Used to be so full of life not just an empty shell
You're out there all alone I wonder why

The pieces keep on falling out and I pick them up myself
But I'd let you steal the buttons from my eyes

Oh, This is where it starts tonight
If you open up your heart tonight

You're staring out the window
And I’m out here in the street
You stand there like a scarecrow
And I’m begging you to speak
You used to be my solid ground
Now I'm drowning in the sea
And I just wanna believe in you and me
Yeah, I just wanna believe in you and me

Hey yeah, hey..., hey yeah, hey... (2x)

You said you'd open up for me
Well nothing's what it seems to be
How can I make you feel again
Only you can make me real again

You're staring out the window
I’m out here in the street
You stand there like a scarecrow
I’m begging you to speak
You used to be my solid ground
Now I'm drowning in the sea
I just wanna believe in you and me
I just wanna believe in you and me

You're staring out the window
I’m out here in the street
You stand there like a scarecrow
I’m begging you to speak
You used to be my solid ground
Now I'm drowning in the sea
I just wanna believe in you and me
Yeah, I just wanna believe in you and me

Hey yeah, hey..., hey yeah, hey...

You're staring out the window
I’m out here in the street
You stand there like a scarecrow

I just wanna believe in you and me

The Vamps, 5 Seconds of Summer & Rixton

Hello!!!

Masa zaman aku sekolah menengah dulu, aku cukup suka dengar muzik dari band-band seperti Simple Plan, Good Charlotte, Busted, Blink 182 dan banyak lagi lah. Tapi sayangnya muzik Pop/Rock/Punk ni agak tenggelam sedikit tapi lately banyak band-band macam ni muncul kembali. Antara 3 band muzik yang paling menyerlah adalah The Vamps, 5 Seconds of Summer & Rixton. 

The Vamps


Band dari UK ini muncul dengan single pertama mereka, 'Can We Dance' pada tahun 2013. Setakat ini The Vamps telah mengeluarkan 3 singles dan album pertama mereka baru saja dikeluarkan pada awal tahun ini. Dianggotai oleh Brad (Vokal utama), James (Gitar), Connor (Bass) dan Tristan (Drum), band ini mula mendapat tempat di hati peminat apabila menjadi opening artist untuk tour artis lain seperti McFly dan Little Mix. Single pertama mereka 'Can We Dance' memang catchy. Kedengaran seperti lagu Bruno Mars sikit sebab Bruno Mars yang tulis dan producekan lagu ini. 



5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS)


5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS) mula dikenali apabila mereka telah dipilih sebagai opening act kepada One Direction untuk konsert jelajah album ketiga One Direction. Band dari Australia ini telah mengeluarkan single pertama mereka 'She Looks So Perfect' pada Februari lalu. Dianggotai oleh 4 anak muda dari Australia iaitu Luke (vokal), Michael (Gitar), Calum (Bass) dan Ashton (Drum). Single pertama mereka telah berjaya mengungguli carta di serata dunia termasuklah UK dan Australia. 



Rixton 


Band Rixton pula mula dikenali apabila video-video cover mereka yang telah diletakkan di Youtube berjaya mendapat perhatian peminat. Rixton mengeluarkan single pertama mereka, 'Me And My Broken Heart' yang berjaya menarik perhatian peminat di serata dunia. Persembahan mereka sebagai artis undangan di The Voice USA berjaya melonjakkan populariti lagu 'Me And My Broken Heart'. Lagu yang menjadikan lagu 'Lonely No More' dari Rob Thomas sebagai sample, memang catchy. 



So untuk sesiapa yang pernah suka muzik dari Simple Plan, Busted, McFly, Good Charlotte bolehlah cuba mendengar lagu-lagu dari band-band ini.

American Idol Season 13 - Finale

Hello!!!

It's time for the finale!!! Jena VS Caleb!!! If Jena win, she'll become one of my favorite winners ever along with Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jordin Sparks & Kris Allen. But if Caleb win, he'll become my least favorite winner ever. Here are my review of this week performances. 

1. Jena Irene (Dog Days Are Over by Florence & The Machine, Can't Help Falling In Love by Elvis Presley & We Are One by Jena Irene)

~ Her first song was good. But that song... I don't think that's a perfect song for the finale. That song was given to her by the producer... Oh gosh.. They didn't want her to win. Her reprise for CHFIL was million miles better. Even better than her performance at Top 4. And she did well again for her coronation song. Very catchy and I can see in the music industry as an artist. B+, A+, A

2. Caleb Johnson (Dream On by Aerosmith, Maybe I'm Amazed by Paul McCartney & As Long As You Love Me by Caleb Johnson)

~ His first song was perfect for him. I think he did well. His reprise of Maybe I'm Amazed was just okay for me. I prefer the original performance at Top 4. For his last performance, it was obvious that he dislike the song. I think it's too outdated and lame. A-, B+ & B-

Overall, Jena should win. But the fact that Caleb is from South worried me.. People from South, they didn't care who's the better singer. I hope I'm wrong. Here is my final ranking;

1. Jena Irene: Can't Help Falling In Love: A+
2. Jena Irene: We Are One: A
3. Caleb Johnson: Dream On: A-
4. Jena Irene: Dog Days Are Over: B+
5. Caleb Johnson: Maybe I'm Amazed: B+
6. Caleb Johnson: As Long As You Love Me: B-

Results

Winner: Caleb Johnson

Boo!!!! Definitely worst winner ever. Bye. 

American Idol Season 13 - Top 3 Live Show

Hello!!! 

Here are my review of Top 3 performance. 

1. Caleb Johnson (Never Tear Us Apart by INXS, Demons by Imagine Dragons & Dazed & Confused by Led Zeppelin)

~ Caleb was sick. He lost his voice. Arghhh.. I really hate when they milked the sympathy for him. I can't stand all of his performances, especially the last one. Ewwww. And the judges gave him standing ovation. Why? Because he destroyed the mic stand? I hope he's going home. C, C & C-

2. Alex Preston (Pompeii by Bastille, Stay by Rihanna & Story of my Life by One Direction)

~ Alex has a very solid week. Stay was beautiful. One of his best performances. Pompeii was good too. He did something different this week. And Story of my Life was good but I think he should reprised Fairytales over this one. B+, A+ & A-

3. Jena Irene (Titanium by David Guetta Ft Sia, Heart Attack by Demi Lovato & Creep by Radiohead)

~ Titanium & Heart Attack were good. But her reprise of Creep was the best performance from her. Last time, she performed this song, she did really well but this time it was even better. Love her.. B+, B+ & A+

It's very obvious that Jena and Alex should move forward to the Finale. But I doubt it will happen because of the sympathy votes for Caleb. Eww. Here are my ranking for this week performance.

1. Jena Irene - Creep: A+
2. Alex Preston - Stay: A+
3. Alex Preston - Story Of My Life: A-
4. Alex Preston - Pompeii: B+
5. Jena Irene - Titanium: B+
6. Jena Irene - Heart Attack: B+
7. Caleb Johnson - Demons: C
8. Caleb Johnson - Never Tear Us Apart: C
9. Caleb Johnson - Dazed & Confused: C-

Results:

Eliminated: Alex Preston

I knew it... Arghhh... Alex ended his journey in American Idol with Fairytales. Great performance from him.. He's definitely the best WGWG ever. Hmmm maybe second behind, Kris Allen. 

Ramalan Anugerah Bintang Popular Berita Harian 2013

Hello!!!

Salah satu majlis anugerah yang paling aku tunggu-tunggu akan berlangsung pada malam ini. Majlis yang sepatutnya berlangsung pada bulan April terpaksa ditangguhkan untuk menghormati mangsa-mangsa tragedi MH370. Aku tak sure pula persembahan apa yang menarik malam ini sebab promosi ABPBH tahun ini agak sederhana. Tiada publisiti sangat. Sedar-sedar dah tiba malam penganugerahan.

2. Fasha Sandha

1. Didie Alias
2. Jihan Muse
3. Noorkhiriah

The Voice Season 6 - Top 5 Live Show

Hello!!!

2 weeks more and then we will find out who's the winner of The Voice Season 6. But first, here are my review of this week performance. Contestants will sing 2 songs; Contestant's Choice & Coach's Choice. 

1. Kristen Merlin (Gunpowder & Lead by Miranda Lambert & Foolish Games by Jewel)

~ Her first performance was so solid. I love her energy but it was a little bit safe for me. But her second performance was brilliant. I love her emotion. She connected to the song really well. Such a perfect song for her. I really want her to be in the final. B & A

2. Josh Kaufman (All Of Me by John Legend & Love Runs Out by OneRepublic)

~ Josh had two good performances this week. I loved All Of Me more than Love Runs Out but he definitely should be in the final. All Of Me was one of the song that I wanted him to sing. Another one is Mirror. I hope he'll get a chance to sing that song next week. A & B+

3. Kat Perkins (Let It Go by Idina Menzel & Chandelier by Sia)

~ Majesty Rose from American Idol performed Let It Go before but it was such a mess. I think Kat did better than Majesty but still, I don't think this is a perfect song for her. I love Chandelier. It's a tough song to sing but I think Kat did a good job with it. B- & A-

4. Christina Grimmie (Hide & Seek by Imogen Heap & Some Nights by Fun)

~ I think vocally, Christina sounded great. I like what she did with Hide & Seek and Some Nights also had some good moment in it but I still think she underperformed. I expected better from her cause she was always great with her song choice. I'm not sure if her fans want to buy these two songs because the original songs were already perfect. A- & B

5. Jake Worthington (Good Ol' Boys by Waylon Jennings & Heaven by Bryan Adams)

~ I was ready to count Jake out after his first performance. There was nothing special with that performance. But then he came up with Heaven and reminded me how I fell in love with his voice. Song choices are crucial for him. With the perfect song, I think he could win this competition. B- & A

Here are my rankings for this week;

1. Jake Worthington - Heaven: A
2. Kristen Merlin - Foolish Games: A
3. Josh Kaufman - All of Me: A
4. Christina Grimmie - Hide & Seek: A-
5. Kat Perkins - Chandelier: A-
6. Josh Kaufman - Love Runs Out: B+
7. Kristen Merlin - Gunpowder & Lead: B+
8. Christina Grimmie - Some Nights: B
9. Kat Perkins - Let It Go: B-
10. Jake Worthington - Good Ol' Boys: B-

Results:

Bottom 3: Christina Grimmie, Kat Perkins & Kristen Merlin

Instant Save: Christina Grimmie

Eliminated: Kristen Merlin & Kat Perkins

~ I'm really sad to see both Kristen & Kat went home but I totally expected that was going to happen. Kristen had so many moments in this season. She's a truly underdog. Same as Kat. I never thought that I'm going to root for her. 

Final 3 is going to be so tough and close. Jake, with the perfect song can win this. Josh is so consistent and he made it to the Top 10 on Itunes Chart more than Christina & Jake (3 times). And Christina will definitely make a comeback after a lackluster week.

American Idol Season 13 - Top 4 Live Show

Hello!!!

For the first time, Top 4 will sing 3 songs each and the theme for this week are Break-Ups, Dedication & Make-Ups. Here are my review for the show this week. 

1. Caleb Johnson (You Give Love A Bad Name by Bon Jovi, Travelin' Band by CCR & Maybe I'm Amazed by Paul McCartney)

~ After Blake Lewis slayed this song back on Season 6, no one should ever try to attempt this song again on Idol. Caleb's version was just okay to me. A little bit karaoke-ish to me. His second song was typical Caleb. Very predictable and safe. I like his third performance the most but still compare to what he did with Skyfall, The Edge Of Glory and Faithfully, this one wasn't really special for me. B-, B- & B+

2. Jessica Meuse (Since U Been Gone by Kelly Clarkson, So What by Pink & You & I by Lady GaGa)

~ Since U Been Gone is such a tough song but Jessica did okay. Nothing special but I kinda like it. I don't get the second song. So her dedication song was So What. Again, another average performance from Jessica but she slayed the third song. I love the way she connects to the song. Her vocal was perfect for this song. I like her version more than Haley Reinhart & Elise Testone. B, B & A

3. Jena Irene (Heartbreaker by Pat Benatar, Bad Romance by Lady GaGa & Can't Help Falling In Love With You by Elvis Praisley

~ I think her first performance was so solid. But that kind of song isn't really my thing. Same as Jessica, Jena's song choice for the dedication was weird. Bad Romance? But I kinda like the arrangement and her energy for this song. Her final performance was epic. Definitely the performance of the season. Her voice, the arrangement, everything was so perfect. B+, B+ & A+

4. Alex Preston (Too Close by Alex Clare, I'm Yours by Jason Mraz & Yellow by Coldplay)

~ I love Too Close. I saw a different side of Alex with this song. As for his second song, I think theme wise, Alex picked the right song to dedicate to someone. But the whole performance felt so safe and predictable. It didn't feel original. But Alex redeemed himself with Yellow. I love his connection with the song. Great song choice from him. B+, B- & A

Overall, such a solid week especially the last round. Everyone stepped up their game. Here are my rankings for this week. 

1. Jena Irene - Can't Help Falling In Love: A+
2. Jessica Meuse - You & I: A
3. Alex Preston - Yellow: A
4. Jena Irene - Bad Romance: B+
5. Alex Preston - Too Close: B+
6. Caleb Johnson - Maybe I'm Amazed: B+
7. Jena Irene - Heartbreaker: B+
8. Jessica Meuse - Since U Been Gone: B
9. Jessica Meuse - So What: B
10. Alex Preston - I'm Yours: B-
11. Caleb Johnson - You Give Love A Bad Name: B-
12. Caleb Johnson - Travelin' Band: B-

Results:

Bottom 2: Alex Preston & Jessica Meuse

Eliminated: Jessica Meuse

Damn!!! I really want to see Jena-Alex-Jess in the Top 3. I can't believe that Caleb managed to sneak in the Top 2. I'm so sad to see Jess went home. No matter what, Summertime Sadness is still going to be one of my favorite performance for this season. I'll see you guys again next week!!! Top 3!!!

The Voice Season 6 - Top 8 Live Show

Hello!!!

This week, 3 contestants will be eliminated instead of two which is so crazy. I'm so nervous for my favorites. But here are my review of this week performance.

1. Sisaundra Lewis (River Deep Mountain High by Ike & Tina Turner)

~ Arghh this song... The same song that got Pia Toscano eliminated from American Idol Season 10. Sisaundra performed so well but there's no way, she'll escape the bottom 4 with this song. Poor song choice from her. B-

2. Josh Kaufman (I Can't Make You Love Me by Bonnie Raitt)

~ I think this song is perfect for Josh. However I found it a little bit sleepy but overall, I think people will love this. And his fans is going to vote for him. Great vocal performance from Josh. B+

3. Kat Perkins (Get Lucky by Daft Punk Ft Pharell)

~ I think this performance is such a polarizing performance but I love it. I love her energy. Unlike Sisaundra, she picked better song. I'm not sure how she's going to survive this week considering she was barely survived the elimination last week but her chance is definitely better than Sisaundra. A-

4. Kristen Merlin (I Drive Your Truck by Luke Brian)

~ This isn't one of my favorite performance from Kristen. A little bit predictable and sleepy. I want her to attack more but her voice is so beautiful. I just want her to deliver it more. B

5. Delvin Choice (I Believe I Can Fly by R.Kelly)

~ Well, if he survive this, I'm not sure what else to say. This is so predictable. The song choice, the performance, the vocal. Everything was so predictable. I can't believe he chose this song. Goodbye, Delvin. C- 

6. Audra McLaughlin (Forgive by Rebecca Lynn Howard)

~ I want Audra to make it to the Top 5. I think she deserved that. She's very consistent however compared to the last 3 weeks, this is my least favorite performance from her. However, it's still better than some of the other contestants this week. B+

7. Jake Worthington (Hillbilly Deluxe by Brooks & Dunn)

~ Okay. I give up on Jake. I really like him but again and again, he didn't performed well. I can't understand some of his phrasing. He became so predictable lately. Too bad cause I really like his voice. C+

8. Christina Grimmie (How To Love by Lil Wayne)

~ Last round was so epic. And Christina continues her streak of good performances. Her technical skills are so good. I love the way she controlled her high notes. A-

Here are my full ranking for this week;

1. Christina Grimmie - How To Love: A-
2. Kat Perkins - Get Lucky: A-
3. Josh Kaufman - I Can't Make You Love Me: B+
4. Audra McLaughlin - Forgive: B+
5. Kristen Merlin - I Drive Your Truck: B
6. Sisaundra Lewis - River Deep Mountain High: B-
7. Jake Worthington - Hillbilly Deluxe: C+
8. Delvin Choice - I Believe I Can Fly: C-

Results:

Bottom 4: Delvin Choice, Kat Perkins, Audra McLaughlin & Sisaundra Lewis. 

Instant Save: Kat Perkins

Eliminated: Audra McLaughlin, Sisaundra Lewis & Delvin Choice

I think Delvin & Sisaundra deserved to be eliminated over their poor song choice but Audra. I think she nailed her instant save performance more than Kat but Kat had better performance this week. So I was so torn. 

Next week, two more artistes will be eliminated leaving three finalists to compete in the finale. Right now, my prediction for the finale are Christina, Josh & Kristen but I believe somehow Jake will be there over Kristen. I love Jake but Kristen deserved that spot more than him.

Mama...

Hello!!!

Hari ni nampak banyak sangat wish Mother's Day kat Facebook. Aku cuba ignore baca segala wish sebab mesti aku akan rindukan Mama aku. Aku dah pun ucapkan Selamat Hari Ibu tetapi aku agak emotional sangat lately so try my best to not cry semasa menulis post ini. Huhu. 

Mama aku.... Hmmm. Aku memang sangat rapat dengan Mama. Bagi aku dia memang merupakan seorang yang sangat kuat. Tambahan lagi, dia dikelilingi oleh lelaki semuanya. Kami adik beradik ni memang pemalas so bayangkan lah betapa banyaknya kerja yang Mama aku terpaksa buat seorang. Walaupun dia sering membebel tetapi kami tahu itu hanyalah mulutnya. Dia kalau boleh nak anak-anak dia senang lenang je kat rumah. Tetapi out of all brothers, aku yang paling banyak tolong Mama, so bond antara kami sangat kuat. 

Saat yang paling meninggalkan kesan kepada aku adalah saat semasa aku nak masuk UiTM. First time berjauhan dengan Mama. Yup, memang dulu aku sekolah jauh dari family tetapi still dalam Kelantan dan every weekend aku akan balik kampung. But this time, aku berjauhan betul-betul dengan Mama aku. Masa belajar, bila aku tak cukup duit, tak pernah sekali pun Mama merungut bila aku perlukan wang lebih walaupun sebenarnya aku agak boros berbelanja. So sekarang bila timbul je rasa cemburu dengan orang di sekeliling aku yang tak perlu hantar duit ke kampung, aku ingat kembali segala pengorbanan keluarga aku masa aku study Degree dan Master. Dengan sendirinya aku tahu yang itu adalah tanggungjawab aku. Kenapa nak peduli dengan orang lain. 

Mama aku juga merupakan peminat perfume. Aku still ingat lagi, masa aku masih sekolah, dia beli perfume Estee Lauder yang memang mahal. Dari situlah aku belajar pakai minyak wangi yang mahal. Huhu.. Curi-curi sembur.. So sekarang ni kalau aku bawa balik perfume then Mama aku minta dengan secara automatiknya aku redha walaupun aku suka sangat dengan perfume tu. Huhu... 

Selamat Hari Ibu untuk ibu-ibu di seluruh dunia. Sesungguhnya jasa ibu kepada kita memang tak boleh dinilaikan dengan wang ringgit so sayangilah mereka seadanya selagi mereka masih ada di muka bumi ini. Aku harap Mama aku akan terus bahagia... I love you, Mama

April 2014 Favorites

Hello!!!

Walaupun April dah lama berlalu, aku still nak share perkara-perkara yang menjadi kegemaran aku pada bulan lepas. 

Skin Care

Himalaya Purifying Neem Face Wash


Aku memang jenis payah nak tukar brand product. Macam pencuci muka, aku akan stick dengan satu produk untuk jangka masa waktu yang sangat lama. Contohnya, my face cleanser sebelum ini telah aku gunakan untuk tempoh 2 tahun lebih. Tetapi pada bulan lepas, aku telah menukar kepada pencuci muka yang baru. Selepas mencuba cream dari Himalaya, aku decide nak tukar juga cleanser kepada brand Himalaya. Puriying Neem Face Wash memang sesuai dengan kulit muka aku. So I'm going to stick with this cleanser for a very long time. 


Movie

Rio 2


Rio 2 is definitely my favorite movie last month. Totally enjoy this movie. Yeah, I love the first one more, ut still this movie made me laugh a lot. 


Album

Head or Heart by Christina Perri


I played this album a lot last month. I love lot of songs from this album. My personal favorite are Human, Burning Gold and also Be My Forever. Such a great pop album. 


Song

Stay With Me by Sam Smith


Honestly, I just want to put all first three singles from Sam Smith's debut album but I don't know why 'Stay With Me' stood out the most for me. I love the lyrics. Sangat simple but so meaningful. 


Perfume

Super Playboy by Playboy


Gotta admit, I never bought any perfume from Playboy either for her or for him. I think the perfumes from Playboy were just so basic and generic. But I accidentally touch the tester and the smell stuck on my hand and I love it. Something in this perfume.. I don't know. I checked the notes, I guess I'm a sucker for the combination of Orange & Freesia. Love this. It's super cheap... I think so.. 


Book

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green


For the second time, I'm reading this book again. The movie is about to come out this June. Unfortunately, it will be released at Malaysia on September. Boo... I guess while waiting for that gap, I can read this book all over again.

Majlis Perkahwinan Abang Ngah & Azza

Salam!!!!

Last week buat pertama kalinya balik ke Kelantan bersama adik aku yang ketiga. Dia dah belajar di sini. Cuma tempat duduk kami berjauhan sikit. Tujuan balik, of courselah untuk perkahwinan adik aku yang kedua, Faris atau nama Abang Ngah. Alhamdulillah, perjalanan kami berjalan lancar dan keretapi pun sampai on time. Cuma Abang Ngah & Adik je yang sampai lewat untuk ambil kami di stesen keretapi. 

Happy sangat bila dapat berkumpul balik. 4 Brothers were together again. Benda pertama yang aku, Abang Ngah, Abg Chik dan Adik buat adalah memborong nasi berlauk. Seriuslah rindu sangat nasi berlauk yang dijual di Kelantan. Sampai rumah je semua dah siap. Pelamin, decoration, everythinglah. Semuanya hasil kerja Mama. 


Majlis berlangsung dengan lancar cuma Abang Ngah je yang bersiap bukan main lambat. Siap pengantin dah tunggu kat luar, dia still tak siap lagi. Dengan butang baju tak jumpa, kasut entah ke mana, sampin melayang kat mana. Huhu. Sebagai Abang Long yang baik, aku pun terpaksalah sacrifice butang baju aku, then bagi kat adik aku. Last-last dia keluar dengan tak bersampingnya sebab x jumpa-jumpa juga samping. Suka hati kau lah Abg Ngah. 


Mengenai adik ipar aku, Miss Azza. Dia merupakan seorang yang sangat peramah dan cepat mesra dengan keluarga kami. Aku memang suka sangat dengan dia. Very nice and kami pun boleh klik lah. Mama pula memang gembira dapat menantu dia yang pertama. At least nanti bolehlah ringankan beban dia yang terpaksa melayan Papa dan empat hero selama ini. So Azza kena sedialah untuk dibuli oleh Anak-anak Iskandar ya. 


Selain itu, buat pertama kalinya, aku bertemu dengan anak sepupu aku. Sepupu aku yang ni, memang paling rapat. Kami membesar bersama so masa remaja kami banyak dihabiskan bersama. Tahniah Atie. Geram sangat dengan anak sulung dia, Harith


Sekali lagi tahniah untuk my brother, Abang Ngah dan Azza. Sedih sangat sebab balik sekejap sangat. Takpa, nanti raya nanti kita jumpa lagi. 

Aku balik ke KL dengan keretapi with my cousins. Happy sangat dapat lepak dengan dia orang sebab bukan senang kami nak jumpa selalu. Tak sabar nak balik beraya nanti.

Movie Review: The Other Woman

Hello!!!

Aku memang dah plan lama sangat nak tengok cerita ni. First time tengok trailer memang dah berminat nak tengok. Lagi pun aku memang suka sangat dengan gandingan tiga pelakon utama. Cameron Diaz & Leslie Mann memang merupakan antara pelakon komedi wanita yang disegani dan Kate Upton pula merupakan seorang supermodel tetapi memang mempunyai bakat dalam bidang komedi.


The Other Woman mengisahkan Carly (Cameron Diaz) yang baru menjalinkan hubungan dengan Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waidau). Hubungan mereka semakin mekar hingga membuatkan Carly yakin bahawa Mark adalah cinta sebenarnya. 


Namun segalanya hancur apabila Carly mendapat tahu bahawa Mark sebenarnya sudah berkahwin dengan seorang wanita yang sangat kelam kabut, Kate (Leslie Mann). Tanpa diduga mereka berdua menjadi sahabat dan setelah mendapat tahu bahawa Mark menipu seorang lagi wanita Amber (Kate Upton), mereka bertiga nekad untuk membalas dendam terhadap Mark.


I love this movie walaupun it's a little bit predictable. Aku paling suka dengan chemistry tiga pelakon wanita utama. Aku memang suka dengan Leslie Mann sejak tengok lakonan dia dalam filem 'Knocked Up' lagi. Cameron Diaz pula sememangnya funny. So gandingan mereka memang menjadi. Ditambah pula dengan Kate Upton yang membawa watak sebagai seorang gadis blonde yang memang ditzy and clueless. Overall, filem ini berjaya menghiburkan aku.

Overall Rating:


Song & Lyrics: Money On My Mind by Sam Smith


Another song from Sam Smith. This is the second single from his debut album. I can't wait to get his debut album. His debut album will be released on 26th May 2014. 


Money On My Mind by Sam Smith

When I signed my deal
I felt pressure
Don't want to see the numbers
I want to see heaven
You say could you write a song for me
I said I'm sorry I won't do that happily

When I go home
I tend to close the door
I never wanted more
So sing with me
Can't you see

I don't have
Money on my mind
Money on my mind
I do it for
I do it for the love

I don't have
Money on my mind
Money on my mind
I do it for
I do it for the love

I do it for the love

I do it for the love

Please don't get me wrong
I wanna keep it moving
I know what that requires
I'm not foolish
Please can you make this work for me
'Cause I'm not a puppet I will work against your strings

When I go home
I tend to close the door
I never wanted more
So sing with me
Can't you see

I don't have
Money on my mind
Money on my mind
I do it for
I do it for the love

I don't have
Money on my mind
Money on my mind
I do it for
I do it for the love

I do it for the love
I do it for the love

When the sun will set
Don't you fret
No I have no money on my mind
No money on my mind
No money on my mind
No I have have money on my mind

When the sun will set
Don't you fret
No I have no money on my mind
No money on my mind
No money on my mind
No I have have money on my mind

Just love

Money on my mind
Money on my mind
I do it for
I do it for the love

I don't have
Money on my mind
Money on my mind
I do it for
I do it for the love

I do it for the love
I do it for the love
