I am seriously hooked up with Aao Na from the Hindi movie Kyun! Ho Gaya Na (2004) – I heard the movie bombed in the box office but the soundtrack is classic especially for me, this one particular song. In fact it is running on a non-stop loop on my Hindi playlist even as I am drafting this post. Image source: www.bollywoodhungama.com

Having nothing much to do on a Monday afternoon (ya, I was on leave), I decided to catch a movie. Any movie would do – I and my wife did not have any preference since it has been some time since we last stepped into a cinema. We did not plan to see a particular movie. All we wanted to do to catch the earliest movie that we could see and leave.
Truly Deepavali (and I am sure for the rest of the festive) is for young children, busy with their “ang-pow”, new clothes, firecrackers and care-free life. As for the adults, it was nothing but mutton curry, chicken sambal, ghee rice, thosai and plenty of sleep whilst watching old Tamil movies.… [Click to read the rest] “Deepavali Aftermath”No tags for this post.

It does not look too good…
Raja Petra been sent to Kamunting for 2 years (ya, this time the Baldy was “man” enough to admit it), the circus is still much in power (with Sleepy still in the pilot’s seat), Anwar delayed his deadline (until when, no one is sure but the longer he delays, the more he loses the momentum), the fuel remains high (when the international is going down) and good days are yet to be seen.… [Click to read the rest] “RPK & Alizee”No tags for this post.

It is a story about a man and his world largest record collection. Paul Mawhinney has 3 million records & 300,000 CDs, some in pristine condition and some probably is the only copy in the world. Paul is 69 years old and is not in good health.

I always loved Kannadasan’s writings and lyrics since it make alot of sense, inspiring and definitely ahead of it’s time. Picking from an article from the net some time ago, this is how Kannadasan was inspired to write his life story in one of my favorite song:-

(Day 5 in Kabul)
After couple of days of arrival in Kabul, we finally had a feel of the Afghan culture when we were treated to a dinner with a local band belting out local Afghan songs. A couple of “hindustani” songs was also sang when the band team leader noted a couple of “Indians” in the Malaysian group.… [Click to read the rest] “Taking a break!”No tags for this post.

It is a know that music affects the brain in a very positive way namely to reduce stress, reduces anxiety and improves concentration. The question is how does music really affect the brain? Image source: Quora
It is Day 5 of our overseas assignment in Dubai and clearly it was time to put on the headphones and listen to some music as it was very noisy at the workplace and it was getting on our nerves! Everyone seems to be on the edge and the slightest irritations seem to spark arguments at any moment.
Ya, I watched it on Astro last night.
But I have a confession to make – I am not a big “idol” of American Idol or local version, Malaysian Idol. I never watched the finals or spend sleepless nights wondering who get picked up for the next round. It is simply a waste of time – because whoever in the finals, are those who can really sing.… [Click to read the rest] “The thing about American Idol”
