It's gonna be a hard one, coz the two are from totally different genres...A rocker and another ballad singer...So, who will win? Keep the final say till we see how the two performed on that very history-making night!No doubt recording deals are just at the doorsteps for both of them now no matter who wins...

Working On It!!!

Gee...how long has it been taking me to complete this song?
First of all, i have this problem that my song compositions always tend to sound like chinese pop. I just dont know why. Remember the very first song i composed was when i were er...13years old? I played it on the piano to my teacher & she was a little shocked, sorta, because i admit i wasnt good in piano that time as in exams (borderline marks), giving me compliments and all while she did try to put some touch here & there to make it sounds better...Oooh, it was encouraging, especially when you know you always scored not so good marks in exams and somebody liked your compositions and giving compliments and stuffs like that.& there i start to go kick some asses...
Since then i've been jotting down the notes and melody lines whenever a tune starts playing in my head.If there's no papers or pen i'd quickly get to my piano and keep playing it till it stuck to my head or i'd keep humming the tune till i get to jot them down. Sometimes i'd use a recorder or with my mobile phone to record my pieces.
But now realising that all of my pieces actually sounded a lil like chinese pop songs is giving me a question mark. Is it a good thing considering i dont know chinese. I mean of course a song has to come with lyrics right? So who will pen those chinese lyrics down? Or pen it in english or malay?with the song sounded like chinese?Hmmm...ya...can also la...Ok settled.
When comes to penning lyrics, it's giving me a hard time too...Just cant get the flow sometimes...Always stuck halfway or sometimes when it's completed but when i sing it out a few times, i'd go "er, it doesnt sound nice afterall, sux" and i cancel everything and get back to the start and rethink all over again...or maybe i set myself to high?or lack of inspirations/confidence?But thanks to you-know-who-you-guys-are who bought me a book for my birthday!!It's>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>











Yet to really go through it though...but hope it helps. Anyway, im now currently working on a song that i think it suits better with a guitar. That's why im picking up a guitar on my own now (since january)...
Till then, tomorrow it's gonna be a quite important day for me...an interesting one.
Hopefully it'll turn out well. Gonna tell you what it is soon... XD

Idol Fever


Okay..see that?im sure whoever has a tv at home would have known this show pretty well...some might go "ah...boring..sick with it, (concerning the show has been running for 7th season now!)" or some couldnt be bothered or some might just stick their a**, er no need to be decent la okay, stick their ass tight on their seat and start reading this. Oh man, im gonna tell you, im a HUGE HUGE fan of this show ever since its 3rd season being shown in malaysia & i've never missed a single episode!!! Well, i did catch up with the 1st two season though on the internet. Before anything yet, gotta tell ya, im an Idol addict/freak that somebody would call me, there's no way to shut my attention off when there's any topic of idol going on.Sometimes i'd bugged my friends and talked about it till the whole season ends and this keeps repeating season after season..haha. Sorry buddies...





So, this season of 7th has gone down to 3 contestants. From 5 of my early top favourite ones have now gone to 2 that made up the current Top3...Take a look.....



(the axed ones are no longer in the competition)




Sadly Carly and Brooke got the boot earlier than they should. Darn!! It's said there's a group of people call Vote For The Worst who has nothing better in their life that they pick the worst ones and trying to get them to the top or possibly to be crowned with the title...gosh!!Get a life!!! They are killing people's dreams!!



At least there was a sign of relief that Jason Castro got voted off last week,finally.



Liked him when he belted out the song "hallelujah" but later on he didnt seem good enough at all.Not even deserved to be in the Top4 spot...He was sorta annoying & got me into nerves when the time you could see him laughing, smiling and smirking like nobody's business behind once was Carly and another was Brooke while they were belting out their farewell performances. C'mon, how could he do that?! where the rest of the remaining contestants were not to be seen smiling or smirking like a jerk, at least act it out, keep the joy to yourself...






Seeing last week's show and a few before, Syesha Mecardo
actually seemed deserving the title, if given her in any of the past seasons, she could potentially be the winner, but too bad as she has to face the Davids in this season; David Cook, the one that i think the most talented & boldest of all of the others in the Idol history for he altered & modified any songs that make into his own! Namely Hello by Lionel Richie, Billie Jeans by Chris Cornell, Always Be My Baby by Mariah Carey. It takes a lot of guts to do so...& of course talent...whereas David Archuleta seemed to have captured a lot of hearts ever since his early sparkle during the workshop when he sang Imagine that touched hearts (my cousin was almost in tears & i was so into the depth of the song while he belted it out). Frankly, this year's bunch of talents are actually a lot better off than the previous ones i guess (except for 1 or 2), something special in every each of them.well, i think Jason's not bad though but not to the extent of reaching top4 spot..cant wait for this week's...
