Shakira’s speech

13 12 2009

If you haven’t watch the video please do. IM NOT TELLING YOU TO. I am advising you to. Because what I have to say is only a continuation.

I have learnt in Geography class that there is a poverty cycle and the only way out of the poverty cycle is education.(my geography teacher should be happy because I remember this way after the examinations). The poverty cycle is simple and basic. Farmer A has 6 kids and is too poor to send them all to school. This is because of a few reasons. He needs to feed the family. He needs the workers for his farm and since outside labor is expensive he uses his kids. His kids do not receive an education and too marry or become poor farmers and the cycle repeats itself. This happens for generations and the farmers have a large family to help with the farms.

The cycle continues through out generations. Now if one of farmer A’s kids went to school the poverty cycle for them would be broken. Why’? Cause we go to school then enter a collage and then get a degree and work but even if they dont get a degree and dont go to collage, they learn to read and write in school which can help them find jobs apart from farming. They get better pay and live better live.

I’m glad I have an education. I am glad I took that dramatic examination they call the O levels.

Sigh I am glad to be in Singapore

If god was one of us

29 11 2008

just thought I put this up

joan osbourne-if god was one of us

If God had a name, what would it be
And would you call it to his face
If you were faced with him in all his glory
What would you ask if you had just one question

And yeah yeah God is great yeah yeah God is good
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home

If God had a face what would it look like
And would you want to see
If seeing meant that you would have to believe
In things like heaven and in jesus and the saints and all the prophets

And yeah yeah god is great yeah yeah god is good
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home
He’s trying to make his way home
Back up to heaven all alone
Nobody calling on the phone
Except for the pope maybe in rome

And yeah yeah God is great yeah yeah God is good
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

What if god was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home
Just trying to make his way home
Like a holy rolling stone
Back up to heaven all alone
Just trying to make his way home
Nobody calling on the phone
Except for the pope maybe in rome





Yes We Can video-Obama and Will I Am

20 09 2008

This was really great. Very creative and original. Also, this will get Obama’s message across. It was his speech and putting it in a song was really creative.

Here is also another website that you might wanna check out.

Fall for you by Secondhand Serenade

10 08 2008

Why on earth did I get hooked on this song? Its so sad and brings back sad memories; memories that I never wanted to remember. I’ll share it anyway.

Fall For You lyrics

The best thing about tonight’s that we’re not fighting
Could it be that we have been this way before
I know you don’t think that I am trying
I know you’re wearing thin down to the core

But hold your breath
Because tonight will be the night
That I will fall for you
Over again
Don’t make me change my mind
Or I won’t live to see another day
I swear it’s true
Because a girl like you is impossible to find
You’re impossible to find

This is not what I intended
I always swore to you I’d never fall apart
You always thought that I was stronger
I may have failed but I have loved you from the start

Oh, But hold your breath
Because tonight will be the night
That I will fall for you
Over again
Don’t make me change my mind
Or I won’t live to see another day
I swear it’s true
Because a girl like you is impossible to find
It’s impossible
So breathe in so deep
Breathe me in
I’m yours to keep
And hold on to your words
Cause talk is cheap
And remember me tonight
When you’re asleep

Because tonight will be the night
That I will fall for you
Over again
Don’t make me change my mind
Or I won’t live to see another day
I swear it’s true
Because a girl like you is impossible to find

Tonight will be the night
That I will fall for you
Over again
Don’t make me change my mind
Or I won’t live to see another day
I swear it’s true
Because a girl like you is impossible to find
You’re impossible to find





The signs we see ( elmo and CHRIS BROWN SINGING)

13 07 2008

Signs come in many ways and not only the ones Chris and Elmo pointed out. You can see signs of people sad, happy, excited, jealous. You can see when it is going to rain. You can tell if you are going to get into trouble. Signs come in many ways. Sometimes we don’t see them because either we are too arrogant or they are too small. Well, usually we are too arrogant.

OK, let us try alittle test

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYiOm_2VQJs&feature=related

Is the above video real or fake?

Ans: I say fake. One if you are dedicated chris brown fan you won’t be so stupid to believe that is your hero.

If you said it was real, man I pity you. I don’t believe that you would believe that Chris sings into a Pepsi bottle. He sing with elmo, yea ok. But into a pepsi bottle. Plus the dude completely can’t sing.

I’m saying that signs may not always be easy to spot. Just be alert.

And cut down on the arrogance.





Chipmuckanisation

17 06 2008

Woah!. Ever since the chipmuck move came out last year, everyone is Chipmuck crazy. I am a big fan of those three adorable critters ( Simon  is my favorite).

Songs are turning chipmucked style or chipmuckanisation. Songs are both cute and meaningful and this might lead to the music of the future.  Imagine all the stars have to suck in helium before recording or going on stage,. LOL. What a sight that would be.





Music makes the world go round.

15 06 2008

a guitarMusic. The international language. Everyone loves music and if you don’t love music, you just aren’t human. Music is one of the most beloved things on this earth and without music, life wouldn’t be fun any more.

 Music has always been a big part of my life. I’ve been in church choirs since I was 6 and joined my school’s choir when I was about 10 after my drama instructor left my school, leaving me and about 30 other drama girls,CCA-less. ( CCA means co curiculum activity).

I started playing the guitar when I was about 11, just after my late grandfather passed away. I took it up in sort of memory of him. He played to. I’ve always dedicated the song, ‘leader of the band’ to him.

My familia has played a big part in bringing me up, being continueously surrounded by music. Me and all my other cousins are very grateful. I’m still in my church youth choir and am a leader in the main youth ministry. Mel has a band and they intend to realease an album soon ( I am they’re biggest fan…even if only their lead singer knows it). K is in a choir iner church too and continues to sing with the rest of the family during gatherings.

Music was one of the genes that all of us got wethere it is playing an instrument or singing or having rythem or all of the above. We all did inherit the love of music. Mel just sent me her band’s lastest song last night.  Unfortunately, I do not have permission to promote it or give out the song until their CD comes out. This song is so great.

Making a CD is expensive. I might ask the band to let me play a song I wrote and record on the cd, if they will let. Knowing Mel,I have a fair chance.

Good luck with your musical dream.
