I Really Like You

OMG!OMG!OMG!OMG!

Carly Rae Jepsen has a new song! *excited*

Ive been her big fansee since her debut Call Me Maybe, and i CANNOT believe i just just found out about her new song. But better late than neverlah! As with that number one hit single that was a catchy tune stuck in your head, her new song will surely get you dancing on your feet!

Nah… I Really Really Really Really Really Really Like You! 🙂
#damnthissongitsstuckinmyhead


And what makes the video so fun is seeing Ton Hanks actually lip-syncing to the whole song! The Oscar award winner’s appearance also got much praise, so MUST WATCH. 🙂

In the new video for Jepsen’s bubblegum pop charmer “I Really Like You”, Hanks simply goes about his day as the object of the world’s affection, happily high-fiving passersby, waving at cabbies, autographing ping pong paddles, and smiling at strangers. Everyone will really really really like Hanks after they see his emoji game in this video and see why he earned all those right swipes on Tinder. The whole thing culminates in a dance party in the streets with Jepsen and her crew, including, naturally, her friend Justin Bieber. It’s a fun video that will put a spring in your step and get summer songs on the mind, even though it’s still winter. — vanityfair.com

Being so caught in the moment, naturally i went looking for more. And i saw this uber cute video! Kudos to the intricate details and effort put into such a pretty video.


Such a relieve for sore eyes, and sometimes even a sore heart. 🙂

Stuck.

#startofranting

Being stuck in traffic jams causes problems.

Being stuck in an elevator causes problems.

Being stuck in a faulty relationship causes problems.

Having your crown jewel stuck between the zipper causes… well, you get the idea.

Sometimes being stuck in a situation or condition that repeatedly recurs, which might seem harmless, can cause problems too.

Habits. Behaviours. A way of life – the norm.

And before you know it, a whole lot of time, energy, and effort would have been wasted while being in the state of “stuck-ness”.

Alot of people try to get out of being stuck. Some just hate to be stuck that they constantly keep themselves busy with work – hoping to distract them from being in the state. Others unwind to music. A few resort to shopping therapy.

But sometimes, no matter how much one tries, one still find oneself back at square one, being “stuck”.

How to ah like this? :\

The Bestest thing in life…

What is the best thing in life?

To be alive. To be handsome. To breathe. To be rich. To see others happy. To be sexy. To be on TV. To have a sharp nose. To be born with siblings and inherit all the good genes. To be in the range of standard and acceptable BMI. To see one’s enemy fail. To bribe a policeman and get away with drive-while-phoneing. To receive.

 

TO RECEIVE. 

 

While all (or most) of the above would be deemed acceptable by general standards, many would collectively agree that to receive is the best thing in life. And to an extent, i agree. I mean, why wouldn’t i? Most of the time when one receives – a gift, a promotion, or even a pleasant surprise, one will feel happy and appreciated. In some cases, one even feels special for receiving for the giver.

Well, i had just recently received my share of pleasant surprises – unexpectedly, from a  close friend. And while the feeling of being gratified is still taking time to sink in, i am always grateful for the gift and pleasantries. It felt like my birthday came early this year! :p THANK YOU very much, for the thoughtfulness.

 

However, i feel the best thing in life is actually to give.

 

Yeap, you read right. The best thing in life is GIVING*. To give time, energy, money, effort, attention; a shoulder to cry on, a listening ear, a phrase of encouragement, a smile, a helping hand in need, a timely advice, a thank you note for help rendered, a bouquet of flowers for a lovely lady, and many more ways of giving to a person for a better cause or a cause to better a person.

To give to a person for a better cause or a cause to better a person?

Yes.

 

Each year, I’m thrilled to give my time and energy at the 30 hour Famine DIY Camp at HELP UNI. This year is my seventh time. ^^

For the unknown, the 30 hour Famine movement  are an initiative by World Vision a Christian relief, development and advocacy organisation dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. World Vision serves all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender.

30hrfamine

The Official Famine Weekend is 19-20 July 2014, so surf on to famine.worldvision.com.my for more info and even sign up as a camper!Every year i see many teens, university students and young adults at HELP’s camp. Each doing their part to raise funds for the poor and participating in the camps various activities – not to mention fasting for a whopping mere 30 hours! : ) With this year’s theme “Kick Out Hunger”, i look forward to a smashing good time at the camp!

By doing my little part in this huge movement, i somehow feel that giving may not be the bestest thing in life. :s

What then, is the bestest thing in life, you might be wondering? : )

 

I feel, the bestest thing in life… is giving without any expectation of return, and/or to someone who you know, can never repay you.

Try it, and you’ll be glad you did. : )

Inspiring Obsession

My newest inspiring obsession!

Emeli Sande – one helluva vocalist. Check out her youtube channel. I recently stumbled upon this beautiful artiste thanks to Spotify – home to some pretty awesome music.

An awesome performance with the song – Read All About It Pt. III

You’ve got the words to change a nation
But you’re biting your tongue
You’ve spent a life time stuck in silence
Afraid you’ll say something wrong
If no one ever hears it how we gonna learn your song?So come on, come on
Come on, come on

You’ve got a heart as loud as lions
So why let your voice be tamed?
Maybe we’re a little different
There’s no need to be ashamed
You’ve got the light to fight the shadows
So stop hiding it away

Come on, come on

I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream ’til the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers,
I’m not afraid
They can read all about it
Read all about it, oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh

At night we’re waking up the neighbours
While we sing away the blues
Making sure that we’re remembered, yeah
Cause we all matter too
If the truth has been forbidden
Then we’re breaking all the rules

So come on, come on
Come on, come on,

Let’s get the TV and the radio
To play our tune again
It’s ’bout time we got some airplay of our version of events
There’s no need to be afraid
I will sing with you my friend

Come on, come on

I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream ’til the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers,
I’m not afraid
They can read all about it
Read all about it, oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh

Yeah, we’re all wonderful, wonderful people
So when did we all get so fearful?
Now we’re finally finding our voices
So take a chance, come help me sing this
Yeah, we’re all wonderful, wonderful people
So when did we all get so fearful?
And now we’re finally finding our voices
Just take a chance, come help me sing this

I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream ’til the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers,
I’m not afraid
They can read all about it
Read all about it, oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh

I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream ’til the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers,
I’m not afraid
They can read all about it
Read all about it, oh
