Sharing these stories because who knows if anyone is going through the same experiences!
=======> ♦ What new hobby did Kappy pick up? I’m learning the piano! I have always been fascinated by the piano and on an impulse that took place at least ten years ago, I bought a digital piano using my New Year money! But I was easily impressionable back then and got easily hurt when a classmate said I don’t have pretty hands to play the piano. Lol. So my piano sat in the corner of my room for the years to come… I know. Why was my young mind so sensitive back then? Anyhoo, I’m learning now!….with my baby brother who is 13 years old. XD The hardest thing so far is my brain refusing to separate the hands playing different notes. This is a frustrating challenge but I’m not gonna give up! If you have tutorials for me, let me know in the comments!
I thought to share this now because a lot of people say you can’t teach an old person new tricks (words are prettily edited, lol). And I want to say that’s not true! You need to have the right motivation to learn anything at any age! Anyone picking up a new hobby?
Piano songs that I would like to learn….
Yiruma: River Flows In You.
From Naruto’s OST: Sadness and Sorrow. I could watch the below’s cover for days… The visual and the playing… Oooff.
Sad theme from Fairy Tale.
You Can’t Say from my first Korean drama OST: All About Eve.
My Love Will Go On.
=======> ♦ Last Saturday, I crossed one item off my bucket’s list! Attended a Jacky Cheung’s concert when he landed at Mohegan Sun! I was blown away by how good he sounded live, exactly like the CDs and DVDS that I own in my collection. After his medley of fast songs, he entered the slow love songs serenade and I cried….. My friends laughed so hard because I’m usually not an emotional person. He started with Man Man (“Slowly”) and I ugly cried for ten minutes straight. LOL. While he didn’t sing any of the TVB themesongs that I love, it was a fantastic show nonetheless. Is it wrong for me to call him very cute and still very handsome?! He is!
I Waited Until the Flower Withered.
A few clips from fans who attended the concert! Ah, reliving the moments! Thanks for posting guys! I was too busy screaming and wiping snogs. XD
=======> ♦ So it’s been around 5 months since I started my new job at the hospital and I’ve made some significant lifestyle changes. When you see old people getting sick, it’s not as mind-numbing as when you see kids and young adults getting sick, all due to the fact that they grew up thinking and eating in a fast-paced environment. All the frozen food with additives and whopping sodium intake? Not very pleasant in your vessels. I just had to call out my brother’s frozen breakfast tray this morning and even he was surprised it has over 1100mg of sodium for a fist-sized portion.
As one grows older, you realize that health is the most important. Without health, all your materialistic wants and physical needs measure to nothing. I have cut out my sugar cravings this past month by not drinking soda! Instead I invest in a couple of nutty dark chocolate pieces (the 70% and above!) whenever I need a boost in energy and concentration. I have also started a routine 2-hour exercise in the past three weeks. The time that I usually spend blogging is now dedicated to good health. That means blogging has taken on a toll as some might have noticed that I’m not as fast as posting news articles anymore. It’s been quite liberating in some ways. Especially now that there are more news sources for C-Ent compared to when I started. I can go slow, nice and steady ~
=======> ♦ I received an email a few weeks ago asking why I haven’t posted anything about the cheating scandals of Li Xiao Lu x Jia Nai Liang and Chen Xiang x Mao Xiao Tong. To be honest with you guys, I don’t want to be a part of the witch hunt culture that cyber-bullies everyone involved in the incident, especially when we don’t know the truth or even half-truths. So unless it’s confirmed by the parties involved, I wish to stay neutral and at peace with my conscience.
Because I do want to go to a place littered with puppies and unicorns. Okie? =D
