New Music: Brokenhearted by Karmin

Have you guys heard of Karmin? Well they're a musical duo that started out making covers of songs on YouTube. The lead female singer (forgot her name!) is known for her fast talking/rapping. They are actually an engaged couple! Their first single, Crash Your Party didn't really set the charts on fire (though I liked it) so here's to hoping their new song Brokenhearted will make them even more well-known. Enjoy!

Trip To South Korea - Day 1 & 2

I figured I should write about my trip to South Korea sooner than later, before I don't remember anything. End of last January I went on a tour of South Korea together with my aunts and cousins. Been a while since I took a trip overseas so I immediately jumped at the chance eventhough I didn't know what to expect. Anywhere to get away from work! I ended up loving it and even missing it until now. My journey starts right after the break...

What R U Watchin'? - Running Man

I'm getting a bit carried away with this Korean thing. I missed it so much that I've been embracing a lot of its pop culture. I'm now listening to K-Pop, did try to watch some Korean dramas, been watching KBS World, One HD, Arirang and tvN, and now I'm obsessed with this funny show called Running Man. Read on after the break to find out what the show is all about.

Best of the Unreleased - Spend Another Night by Billy Gilman

I like listening to different kinds of music. One of the first country artists I listened to was Billy Gilman back in 2000. I liked his songs Oklahoma and One Voice. This was another song I liked from his album One Voice. It's called Spend Another Night. It does felt less appropriate for a then 12 year old but the song is good. Enjoy!

Cuci the Musical: Last Kopek

Last Sunday, I got free tix to watch Cuci the Musical: Last Kopek at Istana Budaya courtesy of my awesome cousin who is a dancer in the show. I thought I'd share my thoughts on the musical here. If you're thinking about watching it, maybe my review can help you decide. Head on over after the break for the full write-up.

"The New iPad" officially announced!

This morning Malaysia time, Apple announced the succesor to the iPad 2, the New iPad. Some call it iPad 3, some 4G iPad. The new gizmo will sport a higher resolution screen with Retina Display, a faster processor, the A5X and 5MP iSight camera. It will be a little thicker and heavier, but probably unnoticeable. How does the new iPad stack up against its predecessor? Well, to me, hard to say it's anything groundbreaking. It's the sort of upgrades you would expect for a succesor. But of course, it will still fly off shelves once released. Head on over to Engadget for full features and comparison.Besides announcing the new iPad, a new version of iOS, iTunes and Apple TV were announced. Time to upgrade!

The Darwin Awards

One weird thing about me is that I like to read about death. One of my favourite books was 'What A Way To Go' which details some of the strangest deaths ever recorded. Believe me, there are thousands of ways someone can die. Ever since then, whenever I read crimes that involves death in gruesome or even weird ways, I'd get intrigued about it. There's also a show I just found out last year called '1000 Ways to Die' on YouTube. Some of the deaths featured never happened and some of them real. I found out about the Darwin Awards when I was watching an episode of the show. This led me to read the story of the real person who died in that way. Head on after the break to read more about what the Darwin Awards are for...

 


Best of the Unreleased - Golden by The Wanted

Boybands are back? The Wanted just hit no. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week with Glad You Came. Proud of them. Was lucky enough to meet them when they visited Malaysia in January 2011. Malaysia still hasn't been able to embrace them but hopefully their chart success will make that happen. I wished they'd release their first album in the US so that people could hear the great songs it featured. One of my favorite is Golden, a simple yet beautiful ballad that shows their vocal capability (especially Max). Enjoy!
