Happy Valentine!
Friday, February 13, 2009
Other than spending Valentine with my pillow, I will be joining my friends for a reunion but somehow... it is quite quiet about the confirmation but anyway I have another appointment in the afternoon so it's alright if no one shows up.

Out of curiosity, I played with my tarot cards. And somehow I got weird reply. I have two tarot cards but I used the Magical Unicorns by Doreen Virtue, because it's easier than the traditional tarot. I just think of a question while shuffling the deck and then ask the unicorn how many cards I should spread and I got 4.

So I did.

The card reply was:

Pet - You love and understand animals

Explanation: Animals and pets love me and appreciate me. This makes me think back of the cats that scratched me and made me bled... Ish ...

But I was touched with the last paragaph of the last pragraph in the book. It also says it could also be a message from animals who passed on... It reminds me of Dai-chan, my friend's cat who died of cancer. Though he liked scratching me but I was truly sad to see him grew skinny day by day until patting him was painful to his body.

Simplicity - Put your energy into the basics, and let go of excess

Explanation: Things have gotten too complex. It's time to ask myself what I really want and what I really know that I don't want.

I drew this card because there's a need in life to clean out some part of life - cleaning the room or even a messy relationship. When you clean the space around you, the mind will feel clearer and more focussed. Energy increases too.

This card also means you have been trying too hard for a project. Focus on the simple areas, and the complex area will take care of itself.

>> Wow. This says a lot bout me.

True - Yes, what you're asking about is the truth

Explanation: This card wants you to know that you're correct in what you are thinking about this situation. You already know the truth, even if its knowledge thats held deeply in your heart. Your body also knows the truth ... You can also hear the truth from your angels ... Your angels always tell you the truth ... even if you don't want to hear like telling you to make a life change. This card asks you to tell the truth to yourself and the others.

>> Oh. I have decided on this: change jobs.

Teamwork - Work with others to make rhis situation come about

Explanation: The situation you've asked about will resolve itself with the help of other people. You need to be part of a team to make it happen in the best possible way. Teamwork means that everyone shares in the work and the fun. It also means thinking about other people's feelings, as well as the group's goal.

This card asks you to be a good team player. First, be open to asking for help. Second, when people try to help, let them do so! Third, you will need to offer to help others.

This time reading is more relevant than the last time I had. Or maybe I understand the cards better this time.

Do you believe in tarot reading?

Love song~***

I'm here to present you the third series of the Valentine Day songs [recommended by renaye]!

Have you all heard of Rimi Natsukawa? She is a Okinawan folk singer from Japan. I got to know her through one of her songs called Matsuri no Kaze at listen.fm. I really like this festival song. You could hear the traditional drum [I assume] in the background and listening to it makes me feel like I'm in those Japanese summer festival, minus the yukata.


Though Valentine day should be a happy moment, I decided to post a sad love song for today's entry. After all, there's always heartbroken people out there. And there are also not heartbroken people who don't mind to listen to heartbroken song!

Hope you guys like it! And unfortunately it's another Japanese song! It's a soundtrack to a Japanese movie called Nada Sou Sou. I have never seen it though it was aired on Astro, a cable tv in Malaysia.



Romanji and English translation are in the video. Happy viewing!

Love song~**
Wednesday, February 11, 2009
To be frank, I never like Ai Otsuka after listening to one of her hits where she spins and spins 360 degrees in the PV and I almost puke. That was the first and last time I watched her pv. But her song "Chu" is quite cute. That was my her first song I accidentally heard online.

Pocket by Ai is the second song I listen - stumbled across on someone's blog about this song. I listened to this song and thought it as quite boring because the tune is quite bland but not until I read the how much that blogger likes the lyric. And so I searched for the lyric translation and ... I really like the lyric because I can feel how touching it is! You can read a translated interview here about this song.

Hope you guys like it! It's the second song for the Valentine series!



anata no POKKE ni ojamashite
futari wo tsunagu te no himitsu wo

sotto ai wo fukamete kita

kawaru koto shiranai

kono saki nan nen tatta toshite mo
anata wo itoshiku omotte
sotto ai wo fukameru wa

anata no omo ni to ka ja nakute

anata no POKKE ni ojamashite

English translation:

Sneaking my hand into your pocket,
Our fingers intertwined in secret
As if we were hiding it from the light of the world.
Softly then, I fell deeper into love.
Of things changed I do not know, but my feelings are
That throughout the next however many years
My thoughts will only be of loving you.
Gently then, I fell deeper into love with you.

Giving warmth to your delicate hands,
I rest reassured that I am causing no burden
In staying always by your side.

Slipping my hand into your pocket,
My eyes follow your tall frame, looking up
At your face that leans towards mine.
At times, I still giggle shyly to myself.
I know too that you always make sure
To finish those dishes that I try so very hard to make.
Time and again, your gentle thoughtfulness
Has me chuckling to myself, embarrassed.

Resting in the comfort that I am not a responsibility,
Let us walk together anew again from here.
Hand in hand, we will shape ourselves a dream.

With my hand in your pocket, I am warmed in
Knowing that I can never lose this love ?a love above all love.
Always, I will be at your side.
Always, I will remain by you.

Love song~
Tuesday, February 10, 2009
I have wanted to post this song more than one month ago but Jolenesiah said I'm crazy to dedicate a song for Valentine day in mid January 2009. I have listened to this song more than 100 times since December 2008.

I would like to introduce to you all a song called More than Love by moumoon, a quite new Japanese duo group. I just love the tune and the lyrics. Surprisingly it's quite easy to sing along. I hope you guys like it too. Do you feel the love in the air ....?



That's why you make me feel so free and peaceful
subete ga umare kawatteku
anata kara dore dake wo eta deshou
naku no wo koraezu ni irareru basho
deaete yokatta

arigatou, kono kokoro
hitori bocchi to omotte ita
sono mune ni dakareta toki
onaji oto ga kikoeta
sono zenbu ga itoshii kara
yowai tokoro mo misete

riyuu wa nai I see truth in your eyes
datte konna ni tsutawaru no
Evervtime you kiss on my lips
koyubi kara amaku shibirete
kusuri ja naosenai itami sae mo iyashite kureta

arigatou, ureshii yo
towa ni kitto kawarazu ni
waratte tonari ni ite yo
kodoku wa iranai yo, mou
chiisana shiawase wo
kowasanu you miushinawanai you ni

anata ijou wa iranai saigo no koi ni naru kara

Cause I love you Every part ot you
towa ni kitto kawarazu ni
mamotte tonari ni ite yo
kodoku ni sasenai yo, sou
All I know is you're the only one
ai yori mo nanika motto tsuyoi mono nanto yobu no
sagashiteta this is more than love
futari no TAKARAMONO
kowasanu you daiji ni shite
Don't know how to say but this is more
than love... um

English translation:

Thatís why you make me feel so free and peaceful
Everythingís changing and being born again
Youíve given me so much
A place to stay when I canít hold back my tears
Iím thankful that we met

Thank you, my heart
Always thought it was alone
When you held me in your arms
I heard the same heartbeat
Everything about you is precious to me
So show me your weaknesses too

There are no reasons, I see truth in your eyes
I know how much you love me
Everytime you kiss on my lips
My body sweetly freezes starting from my toes
You even healed my pain that no medicine could cure

Thank you, Iím happy
Donít let things ever change
Smile and stay by my side
I donít need to be lonely anymore
May the small happiness weíve found
Never break, may we never lose sight of it

I donít need anyone else but you because you are my only love

A place to stay when I canít hold back my tears
Iím thankful that we met

Cause I love you, Every part of you
Donít let things ever change
Protect me and stay by my side
Donít leave me alone, yeah
All I know is youíre the only one
I had searched for something without a name
Something stronger than love, This is more than love
Weíll cherish our treasure
And make sure itís never broken
Donít know how to say but this is more
than love... um

Valentine subject
Saturday, February 7, 2009
This is absolutely not related to Valentine subject which I wanted to post earlier but somehow I thought it would be interesting to share a piece of my mind about love subject since Valentine day is just around the corner, and since Valentine always symbolises LOVE between girl and boy.

A friend of mine angered me many years ago when we were still students. She was older than me and she was a masters student who I get along well. Among all the Malaysian students on my campus, she is the second person I mixed the most. We discussed things freely and usually we do so with other Malaysian students but I particularly remember one topic, which was about partners. Because she was the second oldest in my batch, we know she has a boyfriend [who is now her husband] and she asked us if we have boyfriends/ girlfriends and so on.

We were in her room when we had this discussion but I don't particularly remember who was in the room as me other than she, he, she and unidenditified person. She showed a picture of her bf and we all went Ooh. And she spilled out more about how they met and he was her first and last love and bla bla. Maybe she knew why we went ooh instead of ahh, she defended him saying 'Usually guys like him get pretty/ cute girlfriends.' Because the people in the room know I don't wish to have a partner, she suddenly said to me "I would like to see your boyfriend one day."

Stunned. I asked why.

"Because I have been noticing that many lengchai [good looking guys in Cantonese] have not so beautiful girlfriends."

And I think some of the people in the room added that they have seen kakkuii [gorgeous in Japanese] with plump sized girls and such. And I have witnessed that myself too many a time.

I thought it was weird. "So? You know I won't have boyfriend or partner. So I don't think you would ever get to see. Even if I have one, he has to be LENGCHAI."

She just laughed to herself. I thanked her for saying me cute but not about getting a not lengchai guy as bf. I was offended.

What do you mean by pretty girls can't get good looking husband? It's not the law of nature. We are not discussing some Darwinian theory.

Ugh. Never mind. I have a printed photo of Itachi [ a deceased character from Naruto manga] next to my pillow. I'm going to apply the Law of Attraction.

Ugh.
