104\\ what's on your playlist?

I'm curious what your top songs playlist sounds like.
Mine? K-pop, mostly! 

I do know a few people who anti k-pop and their arguments will be 
'you don't even understand what they're singing.'
BUT! Honestly, how often do you really understand Chinese and English songs?
Unless you really read the lyrics, or else that's just it.
Or more often than not, there's only that one sentence that tugs at your heartstrings. 
So why can't k-pop? NO ONE CAN HURT MY OPPAS! Lolololol

Decided to share songs that I listen to daily, picked 20 songs,
mix of Chinese, English and Korean, and made a playlist here.

Recently I'm in love with Hyukoh, a K indie rock band, their songs are so different and I absolutely love it. I know them through Infinity Challenge, and Zion. T was also one of the singer-songwriter that went on the show, alongside with IU and Big Bang. Zion.T's Eat has the most heartwarming lyrics and MV. 4th and 18th songs by Roy Kim are my lullabies. His voice is probably the most soothing ones, and I want my future husband to sound just like that. HAHAHAHAHA. I'm also kinda sad that he's so underrated, probably because he don't do mainstream music. More on the playlists, hope you like it.



1. HYUKOH- Wi ing Wi ing | 2. ZION.T- Eat | 3. ERIC NAM- Can't Help Myself | 4. ROY KIM- Heaven | 5. IU- Friday
6. F(X)- 4 Walls | 7. BLACKPINK- Whistle | 8. BRUNO MARS- That's What I Like | 9. COSMOSPEOPLE宇宙人-  一萬小時 | 10. COSMOSPEOPLE宇宙人- 浪費一整天
11. YOGA LIN 林宥嘉- 一點點 | 12. ERIC周興哲 - 我愛過你 | 13. KAYEE 譚嘉儀 - Can You See |14. CHET FAKER- Gold | 15. CHET FAKER- Talk Is Cheap
16. CHET FAKER- No Diggity | 17. GEORGIE FAME- Sunny | 18. ROY KIM- Everything (cover) | 19. URBAN ZAKAPA- I Don't Love You | 20. ED SHEERAN- Kiss Me.

Have a good day! :)


ps: I'm just so proud that Shan is finally a kpop lover too! She was sorta an anti, no wait. Not anti, but.... Yeah, she was. I remember she will switch radio channels if they start playing kpop, and that one time it was Big Bang's. I secretly gave her a dead stare. And now, she listens to Big Bang errrrrrrrday. Karma (good one, of course). Teehee!

103\\ Short Bangs











Here's a short update of what we did to our hair. If you look back at it, you will realize that we always do stupid things together, spontaneously. And HERE is why. I'm not sure if cutting your bangs short is a stupid move, but it's definitely not a smart move. Quoting Jeff, 'If you need 3 of you to gather courage to cut together, that means it's a wrong move' Hahahaha. I can't agree more, but the thing is... I don't regret it at all, mostly because I stay at home most of the time. Lol

Shan was at my place on that fine Sunday, where we were too full for any tea and cakes, so we just lay around at my place and think what else can we do other than cafe-hopping. Then she suggested to go for a haircut, bangs-cut I mean. Which is something I wanted to do, but too lazy to visit a hair salon. Heh.

"I'll text Wei May and see if she wants to go, we'll go if she on." 

and the rest is history. Hahaha.

The night before, I kept sending them all sorts of links and photos of celebrities cutting short bangs. But never thought that we would be cutting it the next day. And FYI, it's not your regular short bangs, so short that it's above your eyebrows. Lolol. Like this,



Cute right???? But yeah, I forgotten the fact that they are celebrities, that's why they look good no matter what;
we look like nothing but potatoes.

102\\ 2016 FAVES | jo

Hey everyone, here's my first favourites(/video that I'm actually talking) from 2016. I know, it's already end of Feb, and I'm only posting this now, talk bout productive *roll eyes* Duh. 

I made a video in Cantonese version this time, because I think I should do it in a language that I'm most comfortable and confident with. However, I still stuttered a lot, can't imagine if I'm doing it in English. There'll probably be more um.. ahhhh... uh... Lol.

And even in Cantonese, there's so many times that my mind goes blank because I can't seem to find the right word. Hahah. Ugh!I'm so bad at this. But yeah, practice makes perfect. Still, hope you liked it. Even, if you don't... I totally understand that, but still thanks for the view *wink*

About the process: 
I think I've spent days (almost a week tbh)to edit this whole thing, and then I stopped for awhile till I continue working with the subtitles. I could have just share it without subtitles, but not sure if it's my first favorites, I tend to talk a lot, so it became quite long winded. So I decided to edit it into 1.5 speed to make it shorter and faster, but that also takes around 12 mins to end this video. Ugh. And because not everyone can understand Cantonese, I decided to add on subtitles as well, but only Chinese (for this time). Because I procrastinate too much, this whole video editing+ adding subs took me 2 weeks. *cover face and run* 


And seriously speaking here, I have so much respects for Youtubers and video editors. I almost puke looking at my own face over and over again while editing it. This is so different from my previous experience making shitty travel vlog. I did it once....... And I don't think I wanna do it anymore. So yeah, this may be my first and last. HAHAHAHA. Ok la, just kidding. Depends lo, if I have anything nice or fun to share then I'll do another one. But definitely not so soon la. I need a brief hiatus. Lolol. Meanwhile, I'll try to add English subs. I'll try. So you please try to watch? *puppy eyes* Gazillion thanks!!

Click CC for subtitles (only in Chinese tho.)

101\\ Tabiyo Shop

Hey, calling all journal lovers!

Jo and I got a traveller's notebook together before we fly to UK but we hardly record anything thou it was the year we traveled the most. Until I came back to Malaysia and realized that I have to make full use of it since I spent so much on it right!

My first traveller's notebook. Well fed with memories, see how bloated it is? Anddd, my new notebook needs a cover.

We had a little road trip to Seremban last Oct for the soft opening of Tabiyo shop courtesy of Wen Yea. This is an exciting event for newbies like us, getting to explore new brands and spend more money, of course.
from blogshop to physical store.
 Traveler's factory stamps.
checking the price product.
 washi tapes, in all sizes, colors and patterns.
  stationary lovers' heaven
 gift wrapping idea, keeping it simple yet elegant. 
photography hot spot!
the girls. 

Confession time! We (Jo and I) did not get anything that day itself. Not because the stationery were not attractive. I have the urge to buy them all, the washi tapes, rubber stamps, classiky papers, I SWEAR!  I just couldn't make up my mind at that point of time. The owner was kind enough to provided some stationery/stamps to play around in the shop. But I didnt have my traveller's notebook with me so I cheapskate-ly brought home some of them along with some Seremban siewbao.

I come back again, and I will make sure I bring along my traveller's notebook by then. Hopefully soon,  taa!
