A Pink - LUV

I've made my order for A Pink's Pink LUV album through A Pink Malaysia Community, because all the songs inside are good!

******



Do you remember the times we spent together? L.O.V.E (LUV)
Is your heart pounding? It was everything at one time, L.O.V.E (LUV)
Now I think about those times sometimes, L.O.V.E (LUV)
Can’t we turn back time?
I can’t believe it, our story has already passed so long ago

(My love) On an especially tiring and long day
(My love) There is no one on my side (L.O.V.E LUV)
Just for a moment, I’d like to lean on someone and cry, yeah

You and I, when we weren’t afraid of anything, when we held each other’s hands
When I didn’t need anything else if only you stayed by my side

Do you remember the times we spent together? L.O.V.E (LUV)
Is your heart pounding? It was everything at one time, L.O.V.E (LUV)
Now I think about those times sometimes, L.O.V.E (LUV)
Can’t we turn back time?
I can’t believe it, our story has already passed so long ago

(My love) Among the many people I encounter
(My love) You will be forgotten (L.O.V.E LUV)
But when I sometimes remember you, I still smile

You and I, when we were so happy, when we looked at each other
When I received so much strength because you believed in me

Do you remember the times we spent together? L.O.V.E (LUV)
Is your heart pounding? It was everything at one time, L.O.V.E (LUV)
Now I think about those times sometimes, L.O.V.E (LUV)
Can’t we turn back time?
I can’t believe it, our story has already passed so long ago

Do you miss me? Do you miss me? I miss you
You still remain in my memories

Do you remember the times we spent together? L.O.V.E (LUV)
Is your heart pounding? It was everything at one time, L.O.V.E (LUV)
Now I think about those times sometimes, L.O.V.E (LUV)
Can’t we turn back time?
I can’t believe it, our story has already passed so long ago

Teaser photos for A Pink's Pink LUV comeback

At the beginning of the month A Pink hinted at a possible comeback with sweet macarons. I can't say anymore how I love the fairies and the songs they produce. Their pieces are epitome of quality work that keeps me interested and desiring more of them.

The members had been teasing about their upcoming album for the past two weeks with pretty pictures.



My personal favourite is the first picture that was released. I like the lush greenery behind the girls, set in a garden. The girls looks simple, yet cute. They did a good job blending nature with their charms. I don't care about this bearing a similarity to a particular photographer's work [link]. Thanks to A Pink, this photographer was made known to fans.



The album release was pushed back to November 24, approximately one week from the original date of Nov 17. I don't exactly know the reason but I was rest assured the song is there for us fans already.



The concept of the new song remains shrouded in mystery. A Pink wants us to find out when the MV finally comes!

Double Kantoi!

Kena kantoi! Omg I got caught in the act of doing something.

JinnyboyTV and friends have just released their newest video of #kantoi featuring the latest Samsung Galaxy Note 4.



I really enjoyed the video above since I've faced situations of seeing girls in eateries before. I usually see them sitting in a table in front of me. Normally, I'd keep quiet and steal glances at them until I finish my meal XD. What would you do when you run into a cute girl like the video above?



You guess what? Dan Khoo also has #kantoi!

Opportunity will present itself (Part 2)

I've previously looked at The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus for a research project and made an enquiry to a young academic. She replied that she had no vacancy for a graduate student, and I stopped looking at Nottingham Malaysia.

Three months later, she forwarded a vacancy in another laboratory (in the same department) to my email. After looking at the job description and the academic's research profile, I was attracted to the nature and approach of his research and decided to give it a shot.

I was called for interview and what happened afterward is history. I can't thank God much enough for a good timing like this.

I started on 15 September 2014. Glad to be back in science!

What's up, A Pink?



I'm humming away with Mr. Chu since the end of March & following their success of debuting in Japan with NoNoNo and My My. And guess what? The ladies of fairy idols have something for us on 17th of November!

I'm pretty excited with this comeback and see what comes up! Meanwhile, I should get busy with my research.

Opportunity will present itself (Part 1)

After months of waiting, I'm finally proud to say that I'm now a graduate student. My study takes place at The University of Nottingham Malaysia campus in Semenyih, and I'm now one and a half months into my research project.

At the beginning of the year, I blogged about applying to Singapore. The application took me much effort to prepare, I had to read many papers to prepare a research proposal and also sat for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). The application eventually didn't materialise, and I was disappointed with the outcome. But, hindsight tells me things actually turned out to be much better than I've imagined.

My journey from Viewnet Hyperstore to i-Rocks Malaysia was kind of an adventure. While I was explaining a product to customers, the distributor of i-Rocks expressed interest in me, and hence my journey to i-Rocks Malaysia. Opportunity presents itself in ways you never imagined possible. My take home message is, be faithful to your work and the reward will come to you at the appropriate timing.

Had I not worked at Viewnet I wouldn't have met the opportunity.

Working with i-Rocks Malaysia presented new things to learn about, I learnt about the world of gaming, specifically Dota2. I learnt about the special demands of professional gaming. I learnt about mechanical keyboards and their advantages. I learnt about doing public relations. I learnt about managing gaming tournaments. I got to meet people like Summer Liew and Wynnie.

But I've experienced the world class Walter and Eliza Hall Institute. No doubt I contributed to the society in some way or the other and moved things forward. Deep in my heart, I wanted something more.
