Words.

13 04 2009

I have one inspiration everytime I look at something I like, or listen to something soothing.

Words.

You put the right words in, let it blend smoothly, and it becomes a greater work of art or literature (or so it seems).

When I was younger, I used to take the melody from songs, and match them with another set of lyrics altogether. My favourite? I loved to take Korean songs, in which the words obviously doesn’t make sense to me, and rewrite them into something else. Joanna & Ting can testify to that.

*By the way Jo, I spent 3 hours combing my house to find the lyrics. I think its gone. SORRY!

I found a bunch of my old songs from my old laptop stashed inside my mum’s disk drive. GLEEFULLY I transferred them to my iTunes, listening to each song, reminiscing how these songs inspired me with their lyrics.

And then there’s the other type, that takes songs already on mainstream, record it with their own spin to it. This is the time I first listened to the beautiful vocals of Olivia Ong.

Olivia Ong

I was blown away. Here’s list of the covers she did:

  • Sometimes When We Touch
  • All of Out Love
  • True Colours
  • Close To You
  • Fields of Gold
  • Make It With You
  • Fly Me to The Moon (My personal favourite!)
  • Lovefool
  • Kiss Me

Her whole albums are so nice and soothing! I can just turn spin this on a sunny weekend morning and do my work peacefully. Her voice reminds me a bit of Joanna’s. Go over to imeem.com to listen to some of her songs, and then go buy her CD. Worth it!

Did my first cosplay shoot last Friday. No no, I wasn’t the cosplayer. Bryan invited me to help out in a shoot he was doing for his friends. So down I went to town to meet up with him and his gang of friends from SGcafe. The 2 cosplayers, hyperactive young ladies by the names of Shiro and Kuro, were doing Ouran High School Host Club characters Hikaru and Kaoru Hitachiin. Some choice photos below;

I know my skills aren’t “there” yet. Working towards it. Never back down! =)

Went out with Ting today. I became quite the glutton. This is what is currently churning in my tummy right now:

  • Salmon & Unagi Combo from Yoshinoya.
  • Auntie Anne’s Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel.
  • Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream
  • Rochor Bean Curd and You tiao.

All of that in a space of 4 hours. and you know what?

I’m still hungry.

But judging by what I ate today, I’d have to run later on in the morning. Time to get rid of that disturbing ring of fat around my tummy!

Lemme show you guys a new superhero in Singapore!

Kamen Rider.... Hentai. As announced by Shiro & Kuro.

Yeah. Our dear friend Bryan put on his paintball mask, and started walking down Orchard Road, imitating Hard Gay.

Next time, I’ll bring a VIDEO CAMERA.
