Kawaipunahele
Saturday. 12.6.08 4:31 am
My first time hearing this song is in 2003 from an online New Age radio. I love this song because it has this relaxing tempo... And I would like to share this song with you. It's a Hawaiian song sang by Keali'i Reichel. It's quite easy to sing along. But I have no luck in finding this song or any of my favourite New Age albums in Malaysia.



Nou e Kawaipunahele
Ku`u lei aloha mae `ole
Pili hemo`ole,
Pili pa`a pono
E huli ho`i käua
E Kawaipunahele

Kü `oe me ke ki`eki`e
I ka nani a`o Wailuku
Ku`u ipo henoheno,
Ku`u wehi o ka pö
E huli ho`i käua
E Kawaipunhele

Eia ho`i `o Keali`i
Kali `ana i ka mehameha
Mehameha ho`i au,
`Eha`eha ho`i au
E huli ho`i käua
E Kawaipunahele

Puana `ia ke aloha
Ku`u lei aloha mae `ole
Pili hemo `ole,
Pili pa`a pono
Ke pono ho`i käua
E Kawaipunahele

Translation
For you Kawaipunahele
My never-fading lei
Never separated,
Firmly united.
Come, let's go back.
O Kawaipunahele.

You stand majestically
In the splendor of Wailuku.
My cherished sweetheart,
My adornment of the night
Come, let's go back.
O Kawaipunahele

Here is Keali`i
Waiting in loneliness
I am lonely,
I hurt
Come, let's go back,
O Kawaipunahele.

Tell of the love,
Of my never-fading lei.
Never separated,
Firmly united
When it's right, we'll go back,
O Kawaipunahele

Life on its own.
Friday, December 5, 2008
I was invited to a Starbucks cheer party this evening, where we are supposed to spend good time with the kids from some orphanage. I actually thought it was boring. Serious. A handful of adults only played with the kids and the rest mingled among themselves and there were a few doing some serious financial reading on the couch. As for me, I just sat on one of the couches chatting with some of newly made friends. Bernard was having a great time when he played with the kids and so are other online friends I just met. I seriously feel I have really grown up. Not to praise myself anything but I seriously could feel I have really matured a lot given in I am already matured from my upbringing and the things I read. I used to get into bad mood easily whenever I attended a boring party. I would actually show my impatience body language and just walk off within 30 minutes of an event when I feel it's not beneficial to me. But tonight, however, I stayed on and enjoyed every minute of it. I had really thought of walking out from the party, however, my own voice told me to stay on and not to let the boringness bother me. I was glad I listened because even though it was not that exciting, I did really enjoy tonight's party in a way by chatting with the Starbucks staff and just hang around for the party atmosphere. It lightened me up. And I finally told myself that this kind of boring event contributed to what I am now. There's always something to appreciate in everything we do in every minute unconciously.

Apart from that, my own voice got pretty pissed this afternoon during my vocal lesson. It simply told me "Cut the crap. Concentrate. And don't try ur best in singing just because the phlegm caught up in my throat." It was pretty surprising. It never happened before. It usually just gives me advices and opinions on matters, not scolding me! But somehow I obliged and I did pretty well in today's class even though I screwed up the first vocal exercise. My teacher all of a sudden asked me if I want to perform in the next recital while I was singing True Colours by Cyndi Lauper. I was happy about the request since she has been smiling to herself and once praising herself "I'm a good teacher" when I was singing some songs, which simply means I have improvement! But I turned it down. I don't think I would want to peform in public for some time. I just want a break. I have experienced in performing with several number of people from 2 to 10 000. I seriously hated the pressure of practising for the chase of perfection. I like to do things relaxingly. I don't ever want to undergo those pressure again. This is what I told my teacher but of course I might want to perform in the future but not for now. Because of all these experiences of being the forefront, I now want to experience of being a backstage person. I think that's more challenging than performing.

Oh well, I'm grateful for my little voice advises today. If not, I won't have improvement on my own well-being.

Thank you for everyone's concern in my previous entry. I'm not getting better in fact my sore throat has been prolonged. I'm now really wondering if I still could attend my vocal class tomorrow. But I was thinking of taking a break from vocal class and resume next month. I guess my throat needs some rest since I talk pretty loud - always.

Everyone, please take care of your health as I realised many people are getting sick. People seem to have the same symptom as me: cough, flu and sore throat. My doctor was telling me that this is actually not really because of the weather but the air quality. And I'm afraid to say that our air quality has gone down a lot. An American guy has been marketing oxygen bottle. Yea like the version of mineral water except this is oxygen. Maybe in the future we are going to buy oxygen.

My old hobby is back and I don't like it. That is watching horror films. I need to watch something else because I want to live longer....

Everyone ... take care ya!

P.S: I'm not going anywhere...

Meowing no Jutsu!
Monday, December 1, 2008
How unfortunate that the hand seals to the Meowing no Jutsu is not found yet by the legendry meowing ninja called renaye.... If only she could MEOOOOOOOOW...

But again very unfortunate because at the moment I'm having cough and mild sore throat. The worse thing is I don't have voice. No voice comes out whenever I try to talk. It sucks.

I was on sick leave today. The doctor told me I might have irritant cough which explained as exposure to environmental tobacco smoke and other pollutants (smoke and exhaust from wood burning, air pollution and exhaust from vehicles). Doctor did advise me indirectly to change my job or location to be better since I have been coughing since the end of September.

I'm going to visit another doctor for follow-up so I would try asking the doctor if I need to run any tests to check if I have any allergies.

I'm sleeping on the couch now. Dreaming no jutsu!

Smells like Incense
Sunday, November 30, 2008
There are two kinds of smell that I like:

A) MONEY

B) DETTOL.

And no I'm not that crazy to dip the money notes into Dettol solution.

Innocence at Stake
Friday, November 28, 2008
As usual, I watch youtube videos everyday in office at interval of my office assignments. Yes I need it because I need to be humoured. Remember ... laughter boost up your immune system.

Anyway... I have like watching programmes featuring DBSK/ Tohoshinki because the members are pure funny and cute. The only main reason I watch them is because I like Junsu since he is damn funny and Changmin because he is cute. And I found this Korean talent show featuring them as a judge. So I watched on happily but not for long.

The first talent segment featured a girl who can sing very well for her age. The second featured a group of two primary kids from Japan doing breakdancing and such. Have a look:



I find them to be cool because kids their age at my time don't give a damn about dancing and what the heck about their fashion when we are overwhelmed with pressure of excelling in school. Artistic talent or the possibility to foster it when we are kids were totally crushed.

The second segment encouraged me to continue watching but somehow I winced in my dull grey chair. Have a look:



What do you guys think? It seriously made me sick. Disgusting. I cannot understand why would the parents sent such cute kids of their own to the stage not to entertain people but only to revolt some of the audiences? I'm saying this not because I'm jealous of these bunch of 5 year old kids performing in front of DBSK and others but it's pure sick. Don't you think it's sick to see these 5 year olds to perform this kind of song? Hey it's not Twinkle Twinkle Little Stars... it's I only Want You... Nobody Nobody But You by hot Korean girl group called Wonder Girls. I cannot understand why would parents want to make their little girls look so old. I don't mind their dressing but why make them look out of their age? No wonders kids nowadays are much more complex than my time. Thanks to the current world situation.

So ... ok another breeze is gone... I continued to watch the next segment and this time not only I revolted in my chair I cringed until my jaw muscle numb. Why? It's simply another pure sick segment. Take a look:



Oh well... I somehow can't find the whole segment of the girl's shaking body. But watching her doing it or the whole 10 mins is enough to make me sick. The reason is the same as above. And another thing i would like to add is the body shaking of hers is pretty annoying because it's simply overdone. We do it as a warming up before singing to loosen up the muscles along the trachea and all the way to the hips or the legs for some people so I don't consider it as talent at all. And if she keeps on doing it so often, it's not going to be good for her small body because it hurts. It still hurts my stomach area whenever I do this exercise. And hey little girl , go back to school and pick up a much more cooler talent than this pepper-shaking body. If you still want to proceed with this body-shaking thingy, go and learn under a better goat or sheep. And damn.. why the heck did Changmin hug her?

If you disagree with my thoughts, please bear in mind that this blogger doesn't like to see children being exploited or even seeing parents encouraging their kids making themselves look stupid on the stage by showing off some non-talented stuff even though she strongly believes everyone has their own talent.
