Justin who? (#TT103)

Timberlake, duh!!! JT's bringing the sexy back!

Don't you miss the time when Google or YouTube suggestion used to show "Timberlake" when we typed Justin? 
I miss the old boy bands too. Today's ones are just.... nevermind. 

Moving on from the "Justin" topic, here is the latest single from Belinda! 
This Latin pop princess looks amazingly GORGEOUS as usual. I've been a fan for more than 10 years. So proud, so proud. Belinda, TE ADORO :)

Another Latin pop star that probably started her career a decade prior to Belinda's, give it up for Nelly Furrrrrrrrtadooooo! I like both English and Spanish songs of hers :) 

The next two songs are a little emotional, so make sure you're ready.

Next up, the pop punk YouTube phenomenon, Mr. DD!
These two songs are the new hits off his latest album. Can't wait to see the official music videos!

Hope you liked my music picks!

Have a great week :)

Emotions oh emotions (#TT102)

Just to share with you a list of emotional songs that I’ve been listening to. Added my favorite parts of the lyrics below each video. Enjoy!

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love againIt's in the stars
It's been written in the scars on our hearts
That we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Lost in confusion, like an illusion
You know I'm used to making your day
But that is the past now, we didn't last now
I guess that this is meant to be yeah
Tell me, was it worth it? We were so perfect

Tattooed on my arm is a charm to disarm all the harm
Gotta keep myself calm but the truth is you're gone
And I'll never get to show you these songs
Dad, you should see the tours that I'm on,
I see you standing there next to Mom
Always singing along, yeah arm in arm

He'd say music was the home for your pain
And explain, I was young, he would say
"Take that rage, put it on a page
Take the page to the stage
Blow the roof off the place"
I'm tryna make you proud
Do everything you did
I hope you're up there with God
Saying that's my kid

I still look for your face in the crowd
Oh if you could see me now
Would you stand in disgrace or take a bow
Oh if you could see me now

If you could see me now would you recognize me
Would you pat me on the back or would you criticize me
Would you follow every line on my tear stained face
Put your hand on a heart that as was cold as the day you were taken away

You used to say I won't know a winner til it crossed me
Like I wont' know real love till I've loved then I've lost it
So if you get a second to look down at me now
Mom, Dad, I just missing you now
When I see my face in the mirror
We look so alike that it makes me shiver

So you can tell by now that I LOVE the lyrics of The Script’s If You Could See Me Now. I love the song as a whole actually. It’s sad but it’s so meaningful. To Danny’s and Mark’s parents: Your sons are doing great.
P.S I attended their concert once and it was shown in 02:31 for like a sec lol. Still proud!

Have a great week!

More Macklemore! (#TT101)

Do you?

As the song is going mainstream and the video is getting viral, I ask myself: Have I ever bought any thrift clothes?

After 5 good minutes, I remembered that I did! This spongebob boxer short that I got from a sort of bazaar for S$5.


It wasn’t even a shop, it was just a bunch of people selling their stuff, new and old. Apparently this vendor (a friend of my friend) said that she bought it from Australia and have never worn it before. Well, who knows? But after several rounds of washing, the color turns darker? It didn’t fade, it’s just less bright than the first time I got it.

This is not the first time I wore a second-hand clothing though. I used to wear some of my elder cousins’ home clothes when I was younger. but of course they gave them for free. Here, in Southeast Asia, thrift shops are not as popular as those in the West. Some shops may sell second-hand clothing, but they still tell customers that it’s new. Different culture :D

Anyways, here is the second song of the week:

Hope you have a fantastic week!

Chinese New Year weekend for me, heck yeah!
