Ponyo came to my place to stay for a week while she was here for a performance. Though she stayed at my place, we hardly had time to go out together! She is super occupied and moreover she has many people to entertain while she was here. So she got no time to entertain me. Except at night before sleeping where we will chat a little.

I think she is enjoying herself now that she has got her own little work place in China. She opened up her own Nanyin work station where she is giving classes and performing on her own. Being her own boss, she has more free time to do whatever she wants.

During her stay here, we only had time to go out together once to watch a midnight show. We wanted to see Prometheus but the seating wasn't good. We wanted to see I.AM but it is a GV exclusive, we were watching at Shaw. So in the end we watched Snow White and the Huntsman.

This is the only picture we took... And ponyo was saying that I look super high... because I was talking on the phone with May regarding hair pcs prior to taking this photo so I was in a high mood. Ponyo said that I am crazy, cuz I looked like I was talking to my lover or something.. lol...

Actually Ponyo was my movie partner when she was in SG, now that she is gone, I am back to watching movies alone again~! Oh well.. c'est la vie!

Today I went to watch the I AM. Smtown movie. It's not a fiction movie for those who didn't see it. It's a ducumentary of the Kpop groups in the SM Entertainment Company. I had to watch this because I love SuJu and Shinee's songs. I have a playlist of their songs in the office and they loop the whole day. lol.... So addicted to listening to them.

Watching I AM brings shiokness to a whole new level!! I was like so shiok to hear Sorry Sorry, Mr Simple, Replay and Lucifer in the theater. The music was loud and the great sound system just blasted me off. The movie was quite expensive, $16 for non-members, $13 for members because it's an exclusive movie. But the price was worth it!!! It was so shiok that I wanna watch it again!!!

I wouldn't say all the members in Shinee and Suju are handsome. Some are really not that handsome but all of them have a certain charm when they do they perfectly choreographed dance.

In the movie, we can see how they practiced and how they trained. Though not alot on that, more on the glam, I still can see the toughness they went through. The korean music companies are famous for their harsh contracts.

After watching the movie and feeling super shiok, I went to meet May for kopi. She said that she has the highest exposure on my blog. Well, thats true because there is basically nothing much to write about YH. And some other friends whom I often go out with might find it offensive to be written.

I told her stuff like I am very tired etc and that I basically have no time for myself and do things that I like. Sometimes I feel that Opera is taking a toll on my life. I need to find a balance in this.

She looked at me with the expressionless face like YH. I said she probably can't understand becaus she doesn't have other hobbies beside opera. She said she has, her hobby is cooking.

I told her, cooking is NOT a hobby!! It's a goddam chore.

A chore is not a hobby...

Cooking is something that housewives are obligated to do even if they don't wanna do it. No choice. She insisted that cooking is her hobby. Ok so be it.

Then I told her I got like lots of interest, so many things I want to do. Like this August, Ekin got a concert in HK but I can't attend, my friends are going there for the concert, I am very tempted to go too!!

Haiz, it's very sad lor. I also wanna see Shinee or Suju's concert, though I know a bit hard cuz I got to camp at the sistic website to snatch tickets.

I said that she won't understand because she doesn't have an idol.

She said she has and her idol is Ah Cheng...


I told her can she stop replying me weird answers??? When I said hobbies, she said cooking. When I said idol, she said Ah Cheng.

She is very off lor....

I don't think I have any friends, ANY friends that ever ever ever told me her idol is Ah Cheng before. She is the first one. Faint or not?????

Latest Songs

I understand that my friends and me, being ardent fans of Chinese opera, have very little time to look at things outside the opera circle. We are always looking for new opera performances, listening to the music, learning to sing etc. We have no time or little time to do other stuff.

Fortunately for me, I can look at the latest entertainment around in my job therefore keeping me in touch with the outside world.

There was a period of time when I was quite afraid that the trend outside has moved so fast that I will not be able to appreciate them. Like recently, I just don't find the Mando Pop nice anymore. I used to love mpop but I think they are not my kind of music now. Have I grown old and out of touch?? OMG!!!


Thank god, I turned my head around and found out that I now prefer Wpop and Kpop. They sound so much better than the latest Mpop.

Dear friends who feel the same as me, please refer to the latest pop around below which I find very nice!!

The first one, Up All Night by One Direction:

It's not very often that I love all the songs in one album but I really love all the songs in One Direction's album! Up All Night is light hearted and great for a sing-along.

The 2nd one will be I Like It Like That by Hot Chelle Rae:

Not every Hot Chelle Rae's songs I will find appealing but this one is addictive.

Then here are the Kpop, Opera by Super Junior!:

I don't understand how can people not like Suju's songs like this one, Opera. So mega nice! And super addictive, I am listening to this everyday! And their clothes also super nice! I like this kind of clothes.. very cool.

Kpop number 2, Mr Simple by Super Junior:

Another Suju's songs that I listen to everyday. I love their choreography, simplistic and charming!

I also like Shinee's song like Always Love and Lucifer etc but I think their choreography is more complicated that Suju's. Like Shinee's Replay (another song in my daily playlist) is also very nice but the dance moves are very complicated:

That's all folks~ I hope you all enjoy the songs. :D
