• It’s good to be still alive

    Last Friday, I accidentally dropped a metal furniture on my right toe. The pain was severe, I sought medical help, treated with some pain killer.  I went home and then to work without able to control the pain, was really bad. Fast forward to 6 days later, I could feel slight pain, but I think the toe is slowly recovering.  I missed my routine exercise, but what the heck, I could still do exercise that does not require my toe to be involved. On the toe accident, I just want to reflect a moment in my life how I could possibly loose my life, just like how a metal furniture…

  • yahyel, Tokyo

    Retna and I were in Tokyo in November for alt-J. yahyel did the opening act.  Honestly, we have no idea about the band, first time hearing their performance.  More so, no idea on the music genre, art approaches, neither the style. I have no idea the songs they played, but the next day I had the Spotify (which I no longer use) on to listen their albums, I could sort of remember what tracks they played during the opening act. Kill Me Once Joseph The Flare Rude Iron Probably need yahyel team to confirm whether I got the above right. Yahyel, an Indie pop band from Tokyo, established since 2015.…

  • If You Need To, Keep Time On Me. Fleet Foxes in Sydney

    We have been listening to Fleet Foxes since 2008, by chance.  I was listening to Indie folk recommended by one of the online magazine. We fell in love with White Winter Hymnal the first time we listened to it.  I still remember, I was playing it on my Mac, and after a while, my colleagues told me, I have played the same song like 20x. Ragged Wood is another song we listened to it so often, that we could sing the song the whole day. Elijah could also sing Motezuma when he was 5, and he loved to sing it whenever he played with Ariel.  I guess the song really…

  • Numb, Nay. Seriously.

    The concert was first reported in June, and Retna informed me about it.  I was kind of excited as the last LP Live in Malaysia, about 10 years ago, I did not go, mainly did not want to pay the super expensive ticket price.  Anyway, since I have proven to my family that I am really a LP fan (although I can not sing all their songs), I gave it a go. I got the VIP ticket, hoping with the LP Underground membership, I could join the meet & greet session (well, obviously I did not), I left my pass at home.  Ok, to be precise I actually do not…

  • Megan Fox Sells!

    Something “light” to share with you. I was watching Jimmy Kemmel Live on Star World last night with Retna and the guest on the show was Megan Fox.  She definitely knows that herself could be marketed very well to men – especially through her sexiness.  She flirted with Guillermo and Jimmy.  She first hugged and kissed Guillermo, later she asked if she was touching Jimmy’s pe**s in the drawing.  No wonder Michael Bay got her on Transformers, just in case the robots not attractive enough. But, for now, I can assure you that our boys only attracted to the Transformers, not Megan Fox.  🙂
