My Birthday Wishes

I realized that few of my friends are celebrating their birthday these days which makes me difficult to forget mine too! I have a friend's birthday that falls on TODAY! In addition to that, my birthday is on the 10th of October.

There are times when I forget my birthday was reaching until 3 days before or so, but with all these friends' birthday that falls close to mine really benefited me (remind me of my own birthday).

Time really flies so fast and I'm going to be 19. Oops I revealed my age. LOL

If you ask me whether I have a birthday present in mind, I would say yes! I would seriously, excitedly, happily, desperately wish for a Mini Cooper for my birthday present. I like to dream of something that are unachievable and you can go ahead and laugh.

A Mini Cooper for my birthday present is something I will definitely not receive this year but maybe 5 years down the road I will buy a Mini Cooper for my own birthday present. Who knows?

Lastly, I want to wish my friends who are celebrating their birthday on the (just to remind you):
30th September (Ihsan)
1st October (Kevin)
5th October (Olivia)
8th October (Xiao Yao)
9th October (Xian Tao)
10th October (myself) ???!!!
25th October (Yuan Yuan)

A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY

I will also be uploading my new song this Friday, so come and visit me! Bye!

Faraway Dream

Ok new song uploaded. It is not related to the drizzle lyrics or vocals, it's instrumental again. This song is a little different from the songs that I've written before, not too cheena and not too traditional. One of the few major scales pieces that I've written so enjoy!

(I took it down to join a competition)

Faraway Dream

My dream seems so faraway but I'm going to chase it till I reach my destination.

Maybe few days later I would post my vocal recordings. Hmmm, i checked through my composition list and I realized I left with 2 songs. After posting these 2 songs (which will last for another 2 more weeks), I should think of new ideas for my blog already.

So stay tune to my next post!

Continue editing drizzle

My younger bro ask me to take out all the stupid words such as pringles so I'm gonna edit again.

Drizzle drizzle it starts to drizzle
no one seems disturbed but start to giggle
everyone has a smile on their faces
it's so unpredictable

Drizzle drizzle it starts to drizzle
I looked upon the sky
it looks so high
the droplets starts to fall and drop into my eye

And I ...

Stepped my foot into the puddle
making it muddle
I love the rain drops falling on me
it just going to cool the heat on me

And I

Start to walk into the drizzle
dancing my way all the way to school
but unpreventable
my textbooks are getting wet
and so is my hat
But not to worry that they would get drenched

ok I just think that this sucks... I need sometime to figure this out.

I'm stuck on English lyrics!

Ok I'm seriously stuck on writing English lyrics. So I'm gonna give it a shot by just typing anything I like below. Supposedly, lyrics are meant to rhyme, but I don't know how to rhyme it yet so let me give it a shot then. Here goes my first attempt:

Ok good hmmmm... err... ya.... What topic should I write about?

Ok last night before I slept I thought of something that I could write, that is expression of rain.

Rain has 4 different types as I categorised it. Drizzle, heavy rain, storm, a sudden rain that would go quickly. Let's start with drizzle.

Dizzle

Drizzle drizzle it starts to drizzle
no one seems disturbed
to open their umbrella
As what I saw....

everyone has a smile on their face

Dizzle drizzle it starts to drizzle
I looked upon the sky
the skies are blue and clear
the sun is smiling to me

everyone express their happiness on their face

And I ...

Stepped my foot into the puddle
splish splash splish splash creating my rhythmn
I love the rain drops falling on me
it just going to cool the heat on me

And I

Start to walk into the drizzle
dancing my way all the way to school
Oh no my textbooks are getting wet
But not to worry that they would get drenched

Ok done. How come it sounds like children songs?! Ok not bad my first nusery song. The major problem is how to rhyme them.

Drizzle drizzle it starts to drizzle
no one seems disturbed but start to giggle
When you start to open their umbrella "bo kle"
Oh no! Stare! Just go home eat your pringles


Dizzle drizzle it starts to drizzle
I looked upon the sky
it looks so high
the droplets starts to fall and drop into my eye
and the sun is laughing at me

And I ...

Stepped my foot into the puddle
splish splash splish splash making it muddle
I love the rain drops falling on me
it just going to cool the heat on me

And I

Start to walk into the drizzle
dancing my way all the way to school
but unpreventable
my textbooks are getting wet
and so is my hat
But not to worry that they would get drenched

Oh my god!
I finished it. So what will it sound like? I will upload in my next post.

Glass Box Vocal

Ok finally I'm going to post my lovely voice (ah pui... eee... wth... shut up...) Oh what? I heard that! Just joking take it easy.

It's all in Chinese so I apologize to those non-Chinese people. You know my English standard... so I can't write English lyrics.

玻璃盒 (Glass Box)

(verse 1)
住进那玻璃盒
已过几前年了
感动的那一刻
变得很模糊

(verse 2)
双手碰不到 你
耳朵也听不到你的歌声
之间就被隔着这道墙
怎样能敲碎呢

(chorus)
过 了万年也无法把这缘分割舍
我对你的爱已经别无选择
只有心碎的声音穿梭了玻璃盒
眼泪滑过我的脸颊心无法负荷
(repeat)

verse 1)
zhu jing na bo li he(I've been living in the glass box)
yi gou ji qian nian le (Thousands of years has passed)
gan dong de na yi ke (The moment I once felt touched)
bian de hen mo hu (Seems so far away and blur)

(verse 2)
shang shou peng bu dao ni (I can't feel you)
er duo ye ting bu dao ni de ge sheng (I can't hear you)
zhi jian jiu bei ge zhe zhe dao qiang (This wall has separated both of us)
zhen yang neng qiao sui ne (How can I break it down)

(chorus)
guo le wan nian ye wu fa ba zhe yuan fen ge she (Another ten thousand years has passed but our affinity just never end)
wo dui ni de ai yi jing bie wu xuan zhe (You are the only one that is in my heart)
zhi you xin sui de sheng yin chuan suo le bo li he(Only our heart break penetrate through this glass wall)
yan lei hua guo wo de lian jia xin wu fa fu he (I can't endure it as my tears roll down from my eyes)
(repeat)



Something for my friends:
Sasa - I've uploaded.
Mar - Thanks.
Wee - Thanks.
Yus - Honest ah. Don't worry I can take it.

I will post 1 first. I seriously don't have the confidence to let everyone hear all at one go. Most importantly I'm very tired, I feel like sleeping so see you tomorrow!

What makes a show interesting? Dynamics

What actually makes a show interesting? What makes you feel like crying, scared till you shiver, happy like no one business when you are watching a show? Have you guessed it correctly? That's right! It is the background music that is playing!

My violin teacher once told me to play with drastic dynamics. The dynamics must be drastic in order to be listened by the naked ear. If you don't know how to use your emotions to play the emotions of the music, the other way is to have good basic foundation of playing the musical instrument. That is what my violin teacher always tells me. He also once asked me what makes a horror movie scary? He replied that actually the movie itself is not scary, what makes the show scary is actually the sound effects.

Dynamics makes the music alive. My violin teacher also once share with me the other way to produce better dynamics that is to listen to how you talk. Normal human beings don't talk with no dynamics, the only music that will produce constant volume would be the midi.

Everywhere you go, dynamics are important. Regardless whether you talk, the show of the background music, the way the actors/actresses portray their emotions in the show, the hawker shouting for customers, the birds singing, the dogs barking. If you are learning a music instrument, have you ever wonder why this musician stands out from the others? Apart from the technical skills they have learnt, most importantly is the dynamics that will touch people's heart.

Journey Ahead


I got inspiration from "The Legend" a touching Korean drama.

This drama typically shows about the king and the 4 god guardians. The King was actually a god who was sent by the heavens to look after the world. Because of some issues arose, the girl he liked became the "Black Joojak" to destroy the world. So after 2000 years, he descended to the earth to stop the mishap from happening.

If you are interested you can go and watch this drama.

Journey Ahead
It doesn't matter if you fall or meet setbacks, what matters is you are able to overcome the issues, overcome your fears. You are not alone, there will be always someone that will assist you along the way of obstacles.

I have written the lyrics for this song but I'm not going to upload today. So stay tune to the next song.
