RIP Karpal Singh



Mom asked me to sleep over in grandma's house because uncle was away in Guangdong. I had my first sleepover in grandma's house in over 20 years, the last being when I was a little kid nagging my mom to allow me to stay overnight in grandma's house (hahaha I was like that).

Grandma woke me up the next day at 8.10 am. When I woke up, I checked my Twitter feed. Something was not right when I saw potraits of Karpal Singh along with the caption 1940-2014. Hell no, Karpal Singh passed away in a car accident! Immediately I broke the shocking news to grandma. I said, Karpal need not go to jail, but he's gone forever now.

Karpal Singh, you've left us too soon. We need you for a better Malaysia. May your sons carry your legacy. Rest in peace, Tiger of Jelutong.

Happy 19th Birthday to A Pink's Kim Nam Joo #남주4MyLove

It's the birthday of A Pink's 2nd lead vocalist Kim Nam Joo 김남주 金南珠!



My first impression of her during her debut? Wasn't used to her appearance back then. But I noted her for positive energy!



She's called "seducing idol". For that you'll have to look up videos of "Hush" in music shows.



If you're looking for a cute girl, you can consider her! I remembered EunJi would like to introduce Nam Joo to her co-star (in her opinion) and said Nam Joo is cute, back in A Pink's "Tell the Truth".



In the first episode of A Pink News season 1, Nam Joo claimed to speak better Chinese than Na Eun! Hahaha. But why not try speaking to her in Chinese during a fan meet?



Happy birthday Kim Nam Joo! She's 19 years old already. If you're a fan, don't forget to trend #남주4MyLove in Twitter & Facebook!

Lenovo girls at PC Fair







During consumer fairs I can always see these girls with revealing dress! These people are called showgirls. What do you think they do?

Their job is to distribute flyers to you, right? I can hire anybody to do that, but nobody will remember my brand. But I know many have an eye for pretty girls and will stop by to have a look. Now everybody remembers my brand even though they didn't buy anything from me! Isn't this a good move?

But when you ask showgirls about product information, in most cases they won't know!

Mr. Chu - A Pink



Two weeks ago I was awaiting my favourite group A Pink's comeback with an anticipating heart. When the MV was finally out, I can't wait to have my first click to see how it turns out. The group gained attention for their group as well as individual schedules for dramas, variety shows and product endorsements. I can't say enough how much I love the group, so that makes me a proud Panda haha. Each member in A Pink has individual charms and unique personalities, not forgetting that makes them entertaining to watch as well.



A Pink is showing us their mini album, Pink Blossom that contains six tracks. The title track, Mr. Chu comes in two versions, the on stage and normal version. Mr. Chu sings of a young girl in love, with her heart beat in excitement and anticipation of the first kiss from her boy.



The music video brought fourth the notion of tennis. Instead of the searing heat of an ordinary outdoor tennis court I see everyday, the opening of the MV used a pink-light blue colour scheme to elicit a tranquil and cool feeling, breaking the monotony of the place. The mellow piano adds forth to the tranquility at the opening. This MV made it easy to the eye and ears right from the start, I'm impressed that the production team has nailed it.





Naeun has improved a lot vocally compared to her debut. I really like her first line that ended in a low pitch, that she sang it so well that it gave a lasting impression - she is the visual of the group who can sing!



Another member to watch is Namjoo. Fans has believed her to be capable of hitting the high notes and being treated to this expectation in Mr. Chu!



Leader Chorong was given her opportunity to shine too! I guess this song has her best vocal performance. I really like her line "It's so lovely, lovely, sarang seureowo". She's so lovable, always!







Guess the giving of presents till they overflow the tennis players' locker is the running gag in the MV.



The plus point is, the tennis player who's the members' interest actually showed up in the video!



If you haven't notice, the members were dressed in female tennis player outfit in some parts of the MV. Also in this frame, the tennis balls started bouncing spontaneously, marking where the beat starts in the song.

























When it comes to the bridge at Chorong's, it transferred naturally to Namjoo. As for the rest of the song and MV, the production team has taken the utmost care that I can find no rough edges that will be subject to criticism. It's such a well made MV!



One month to first kiss! And also, it's the date of comeback as well.

*********

Lyrics:

When I see you once, I wanna see you two more times
When I see you twice, three times, I want to hug you even more
I want to put on couple rings with you and walk together on this street

Even when I see you every day, I like you even more
Even when I pinch myself two times, three times
It’s like I’m dreaming, dreaming, I smile just at the thought of you


Mr. Chu, on my lips, chu, sweetly, chu, I lose all strength in my body
You shake up my heart, you shake me up
I’m falling falling for your love

Hey you, on my lips, chu, every day with you, when I see you, my eyes close
Will you secretly come to me and kiss me again?
You’re like my dream, you’re my Mr. Chu

I can’t forget the soft feeling, my hot face is getting red
It’s so lovely, lovely, I keep liking you more

Mr. Chu, on my lips, chu, sweetly, chu, I lose all strength in my body
You shake up my heart, you shake me up
I’m falling falling for your love

Hey you, on my lips, chu, every day with you, when I see you, my eyes close
Will you secretly come to me and kiss me again?
You’re like my dream, you’re my

Listen to my wish, I hope an eternal love will come true
I hope this electrifying feeling never changes
Always look at only me baby

Mr. Chu, on my lips, chu, sweetly, chu, I lose all strength in my body
You shake up my heart, you shake me up
I’m falling falling for your love

Hey you, on my lips, chu, every day with you, when I see you, my eyes close
Will you secretly come to me and kiss me again?
You’re like my dream, you’re my Mr. Chu

Back from Pikom PC Fair 2014

I had to miss PC Fair for a few years due to studies overseas but not this time! I'm glad to be back in this celebrated consumer fair of all time at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.



She wanted me to like a Facebook page, so she had to look it up....



After I logged into my Facebook omg this was the first thing I saw! Met this gamer called Summer Liew. Visitors had the chance to challenge her in Dota2 and earn a prize for beating her!



I met Samantha for the first time.

A Foursquare surprise from Atoz!

Hello my dear readers! Some of you may have known, that I've resigned from Viewnet in Low Yat Plaza for a marketing position at Duskbin Holding and i-Rocks Malaysia. As part of my job, sometimes I turun for fieldworks in the computer shops! It's fun to drive around town and check out the latest technology trends.

Whenever I come to new places, I performed my usual ritual of checking in via Foursquare. Most of the time it's just a record for the future! But not this time - I ran into a surprise when I checked into Digital Mall at Petaling Jaya!


The screen above left me wondering. I stumbled upon a treasure and felt very special! Foursquare proves itself useful because some deals come your way when it's your day, who knows?


So what is it about? Without further ado, I asked for the location of the shop, Atoz Computer Media. It's located at the second topmost floor of Digital Mall.


Took me a while to know what this Foursquare special is all about! Basically, you get a premium free gift for every purchase of HP printers! This only applies to walk in customers, and you must check in at Digital Mall via Foursquare! This promotion continues while stock lasts.



I set my foot in Digital Mall for the first time and got lucky. If you don't have Foursquare in your phone, you've better download it now from your respective app store.

In case you're wondering where Atoz is, here you go!

Atoz Computer Media
Digital Mall
2, Jalan 14/20,
Seksyen 14,
46100 Petaling Jaya,
Selangor Darul Ehsan.
