I’ve finally completed my first year in Uni (: HURRAYYYYYYYYY now its time for me to take a break, do what I like, catch up with sleep, earn some extra bucks.
My twitlist is filled with B.A.P’s stuff recently… they’re really a very cool group! I love their lyrics (which are mainly written by leader Bang) and I like their music style. It’s different from the typical bubblegum pop korean prettyboy bands. Their songs give off a more manly feel even though only 2 of the members are older than me. The rest of the members are so young… or maybe i’m old already D:
What have I done these days…
After my last paper on Monday, I went to AS7 to print out piano scores, and then I went to give tuition and collected my pay! (: During the hols, I didn’t do anything much… my daily routine is basically watching youtube vids, eating, doing housework and sleeping. But I’m going to apply for a job soon. Mummy chastised me for slacking at home and not doing anything productive.
We went to Bright Vision Home to visit Ahma yesterday. She had a surgery for thigh fracture so she’s staying there temporarily to receive physiotherapy. My grandma is so strong and healthy! She’s so talkative and alert while the other grandmas seem so lethargic, so i guess this is a good sign that my grandma is recovering fast! My sis and I did lots of stupid things yesterday, running down the slope from the fourth floor to the first floor and posing for candid photos. I hope no one ever checks the security camera because we made a lot of noise while running around in the nursing home.
The weather in Singapore is so warm!!!! I feel so sticky and sweaty. I start sweating the moment I stepped out of the bathroom after a shower. It’s 32 degrees in my room now, and it’s 9.30pm… could you imagine the heat in the afternoon?
Summer days just sitting around, but when the sun goes down, I’ll be ready to party~~~
I’m listening to Lil Rob’s Summer Nights, a song recommended by Bang Yongguk. It’s one of the more mainstream English songs recommended by him, because Yongguk’s taste is different from mine. He likes raps, but I prefer RnB and pop.
Now playing – Duble Sidekick & Kim Tae Woo – When I look at myself, a song recommended by Himchan. Kim Taewoo is like the legendary voice of korea… his voice fits into any genre! I can’t imagine him being part of the famous G.O.D korean boyband… his current looks and marital status don’t exactly fit into the idol criteria!
Speaking of B.A.P, I can’t remember when I started listening to them? I’ve probably listened to Warrior and Power on the radio without knowing who these guys are. The first B.A.P song which caught my attention was Yongguk’s I remember. I first heard the version sung by Yoseob, but that wasn’t what made me like B.A.P. It was when I watched the live performance of this song by Yongguk and Daehyun, and Daehyun’s voice was just so awesome in that performance!
B.A.P’s songs are really good, but to be honest, its not that ALL their songs are nice, here are some of the songs which I personally like, in order of preference:
What the Hell (I love the “Oh eh oh oh eh
Gotta get your life
Oh eh oh oh eh
Get on get on get on get on ha” part. And the lyrics, go read up on your own )
I remember (listen to the version with Daehyun’s voice. I think Daehyun’s voice suits Yongguk’s better. Yoseob’s voice is thinner and clearer which has a stark contrast to Yongguk’s deep husky voice. I’m listening to Yoseob’s version and erm, he sounds so high pitched compared to Yongguk and its quite uncomfortable to the ears. He sounds like a duck lol)
Coma (This is my favorite song in their One Shot album. But I dislike the harpsichord intro and jieun’s part. Other than that, the song is very catchy and 耐听 haha…)
Unbreakable (One of my first few favorites because I could understand the main point of the song, which is “I’M UNBREAKABLE” and that’s all I needed to hear )
Zero (This song is pretty cute but the lyrics are quite deep too. There is a line about celebrities being covered with makeup and foundation “Foundation and eyeliner The television that’s just full of lies I feel sick inside” which I thought was quite true, but a little ironic considering how much foundation and eyeliner they use too.)
Yep, these are the MUST-LISTEN songs, especially if you’re in a bad mood because B.A.P’s songs revolve around the theme of “Never Give Up” (which is coincidentally the title of Bang&Zelo’s single before their debut in B.A.P, and the lyrics are inspiring too).
Other songs (which I do not dislike, but neither do I listen to them everyday too):
Cutesy and upbeat songs: Stop It and Crash (If you want to listen to these songs, I would recommend watching their live performances because they added some fun elements to their dance and its entertaining to see them have fun on stage and ditching their manly Warrior image.)
Ballads: What my heart tells me and Voice Message (I’m fine with ballads but recently I need more encouraging songs so I seldom listen to these sad songs…)
Yep, that’s about it!
I’m gonna go for a haircut tomorrow because I can’t stand the SG heat! ARGHHHHH I want Singapore to snow right now.
