High School Reunion

I attended my 10th year high school reunion last week and i had so much fun meeting up with all my ex-classmates and ex-schoolmates at Putera. After 10 year, guess what? we all look the same hahaha! i really was hoping to see them looking old, or have matured but all of us were still the same. Our characters, our behaviors were still the same! the only difference was we were more advanced in terms of style, some had beer bellys, some carrying babies.. :) most of them were married already.

Here are some pictures of that night that i copied from my friends at facebook:
The girls at my table.. Elena, Me, Naza, Janet, Ann, Alice & Lesley.


The Jadeians, 10 years later :)


Let see if i can get it right: From the top on the left is Raji Dave, Cham, Salam, Heri, Arief, and Mahardani at the end. Below is us girls: Alice, Ann, Elena, Janet, Lesley, Me and Naza


Me and Naza with our "Name tags" hehe :)


Me, about to sing Selena's Dreaming of You. One of my favourite songs of the 90's

There was a karaoke competition and i was called to represent my table. Who won? everyone won hahaha! the prize was a bottle of Chivas and everyone wanted a sip of it so we (the contestants) decided to share the drink with everyone.

It was a nite to remember. Another reunion coming up in say, 5 or 10 years time. Who knows by that time i will be bringing a husband and/ or a child with me at the reunion? we'll have to wait and see..

What Matters The Most.



Tomorrow (22nd Feb) is the day of the karaoke singing competition. Last nite i went to Hunter's (the venue) to submit my application form with a friend of mine, who happens to be joining the competition too. The workers there told us we can try our songs there that nite, so we did. My friend went first. OMG! she has improved alot since the last time we practiced together! I know i should be rooting for her (and i am!) but it's hard to do so if you're also fighting for the same title.

At dinner, i kept on thinking and thinking how am i gonna beat her? she is singing Jaclyn Victor's victory song, "Gemilang" and i have to tell you, my friend sang it like it was her own victory song. I'm gonna be singing Christina Aguilera's song, "Reflection". I did so much thinking i slept at 2am haha! seee how much of a thinker i am?

Anyways, all of that changed when this morning a colleague of mine chat with me on facebook. He said things to me that seemed to opened my mind. I mean, after all it's only a singing competition. It's not a matter of life and death. If my life depends on the prize money.. itu lain cerita la kan. I have a stable job that pays good money. So im just going to enjoy the ride. Im in the competition for experience.

Whatever happens tomorrow, it will not matter because i believe i will enjoy the experience. And that's what matters the most :)

Happy V'day & CNY!!

Happy Valentine's Day AND Happy Chinese New Year to all of you!!

Yesterday I sang at my friend's wedding. Guess what? the music didnt want to co-operate with me! it decided to go bonkers on me at the church :( i was kind of sad it turned out like that but at the wedding reception, alot of people came up to me, thanking me and telling me how they liked my song even though the music went crazy. yeheayy!! :)

I didnt stay long at the reception because i suddenly had a case of tummy ache and wanted to go to the toilet badly. Since im not a fan of public toilets, i went home hehehe.

Unsatisfied with my performance at the wedding, i decided to record it in my room :) So here it is, Two Words:



Enjoy!

If you were wondering what ive been doing on Valentine's Day, i was busy enjoying the Chinese New Year Celebration. Yesterday (Valentines Day) happen to be the 1st day of Chinese New Year. AAAANNDDD it was due to the fact that i dont have any dates to celebrate Valentine's Day with LOL! so what better way to celebrate it than with your family?

Anyways, Have fun all you!

Cleaning Your Desk Day

Since it is my final days at my workplace, i decided to clean out my desk yesterday. Not that it was messy or anything but it did have a lot of stuff (files, books, papers, etc) and it's really taking up the whole desk.

I was half way through when i decided to take a picture of my desk which looks like this with all the files (donated to my colleague) and loose papers (sent it to the "recycled papers" box) on my desk.

After say, an hour or so my desk transformed into
this:

Sorry, the pictures aren't that clear. I used my cellphone camera to take the pictures :-)

Im gonna be on leave today. I still have a few days of annual leave and i dont want to waste it. I need to run some errands and it can only be done today.

Oh and by the way, about the big thing that i have been hinting on in the previous post, well it is that am joining a karaoke singing competition on the 22nd of February at Hunter's. It's only the 1st heat im still unsure if i'll make it to the semi-finals. But hey, it's worth a shot right? The last time i joined a karaoke singing competition was back in college (some 5 years ago) where i sang "I Turn To You" by Christina Aguilera and won 1st place. But the competition wasn't tight so it was easy for them to pick me as winner, that's what i think hehehe. But for this coming competition, i am reaaaallly unsure of making it. there is a lot of good talents out there. I just hope i can make it to the top 5 :) About song choice, we need to list down 2 songs so my picks are "Reflection" by Christina Aguilera and "Alone" by Heart. What do you think about the song choices? Do you think it is good enough for competition? I originally wanted to sing "Dont Cry Out Loud" by Melissa Manchester and "Broken Hearted Girl" by Beyonce but changed my mind this week.

Please comment. If you have any song you want to recommend me for the competition please do so! The competition is getting nearer and it's time for serious practicing :)

It's 6.31am here. It's still cold but here i am blogging away LOL! Im so used to waking up early everyday. But the good thing about waking up early today is that i dont have to go to work today. Yeayy!

Have a good day!

Im No Fakey

Yea, I am no fakey that's why i dont wear colored contact lenses and fake eyelashes.

BUT!

There is a reason to why i do not wear them:

It's because i dont know how to wear them. Yes. You read it right, i don't know how to apply fake eyelashes AND my eyes are still virgins to contact lenses. I have never worn contact lenses.

And you know what? I recently (this year) have the interest to try them on. I see other girls wearing them and i find it pretty on them. I WANT TO LEARN HOW TO WEAR THEM! and guess what? I've got people to teach me how to wear them right LOL! to some people, this is easy peasy.. a piece o'cake and it's not like i didnt try, I did.. I tried applying those fake eyelashes but i cant get it right. Urgh. I guess i just dont have any talent in doing so :( i need to attend a crash course on it hahah!

So the next time you see me.. my eyes be differennt in color AND my eyelashes will be lonnnnngggger! which means, i'll be looking much more prettier! (i sound vain on the last line, but dont worry.. i dont usually sound this vain in real life hehehehe)

Im getting a bit worried because im scheduled to sing this saturday (at church) AND on sunday for the wedding and i still have flu! :( I hope i'll recover soon! soon as in like, tomorrow?? I have another big event coming up but i'll tell you guys about that in another post when everything's finalized ;-)

Aight. I think this is about it for today's entry.

Take care, readers! (whoever you may be, thanks for visiting)

The Perfect Song.

One of my childhood friends are getting married next week, on Valentines Day (and Chinese New Year). I was being told on saturday that my slot will be during the signing of their marriage certificate. I have planned to sing "Forevermore" by Side A. But all that changed when a friend of mine suggested me to check out this one song by Lea Salonga, "Two Words". So i did and i fell in love with the song that instant. According to my friend, Lea Salonga sang it during her own wedding. Wow...

Everytime i hear this song, it makes me want to sing this song on my own wedding (God only knows when that will be LOL)

I just texted the title of the song to the bride-to-be and it's confirmed. Im gonna sing it next sunday.I hope people will be touched and moved by the song as i am :) It's nice to touch people through the songs that you sing even if they are not originally yours. A student of mine told me last week after i posted new videos on facebook not to stop singing because through the songs, people can relate themselves to it. That is one of the first thing that i do when picking songs: whether it can relate to me or not.
It is much easier to put your soul and emotion into the song when you can relate and feel the song.

Click here for the clip of the song, where Lea Salonga sang the song during her wedding. I was almost moved to tears :]

New Recordings


BROKEN-HEARTED GIRL

Yesterday i call in sick because i wasn't feeling well. But i was feeling all better at 8.30am hahaha! So, since i was alone at home i turned up the volume of my speakers and did some recording :)

I planned to record more but my voice became sore after 2 songs. I just recovered from a mild sore throat and there i was releasing my inner beyonce LOL!


WHEN I FALL IN LOVE

This particular song, i have sang it many times at weddings. I just felt that i should make a clearer version of it :) Since it's soon Valentines Day, this goes out to all the lovers out there
