  1. I absolutely love this song and it’s so close to my heart. This is my cover of After An Afternoon by Jason Mraz.

     
    1. Me (21 yr old): *scrolling through old photos*
    2. Mika (8 yr old): Um, have you ever kissed a boy on his chest?
    3. Me: Um, Mika, why would I kiss a boy on his chest?
    4. Mika: So that he knows you love his heart? *walks away*

Finally had the time to finish this digital illustration! A group portrait of me and my best friends, Mel and Berna. I left them in Brisbane earlier this year to be with Sam in Sydney, and although I don’t have any regrets, It’s the hardest thing to live far from two of the girls I am the closest with. We call ourselves the powerpuff girls only because if you saw us IRL you will probably call us that. Each of us have our own obsessions and uniqueness that we can distinctively identify from one another and we have our favourite colours.
I’ll publish an individual post with each unique portrait with which I will share fun facts about us (it’s the weekend and I have nothing better to do…this is fun for me). Stay tuned! 

So junking talented, Lisa. I love this so much and those details with Mel’s mic and your art supplies! *insert heart eyes here*
Come visit Malaysia soon or else I’ll just have to get my butt down to Australia to hang with you!

  3. Hi Annatasha, My name is Fadly, I am the Festival Director of the 7th Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival (KLEFF). I'd like to invite you to perform at our festival this year (check out on Facebook). What I need is your email address so I can explain more about our festival and how a young voice like yourself can play a role in it. I sent you FB message, can you please check? Look forward to your reply.

  4. On behalf of 60% of your fan base, Would you consider dating a slightly younger guy? Maybe a year or year and a half
    asked by niknaknok
    answer:

    Haha 60% fanbase? You’re funny! Ummm. I think at one point I did consider it. But right now I’m not quite too sure. Neither am I looking to date anyone!

  9. It’s been a crazy past two weeks since I’ve been home from Thailand, London and Barcelona. A lot of things have happened (and they’ve been really important too). 
Show after show; that’s been a blessing. I absolutely love performing and I hope to keep at it for as long as I can. 
Job after job; also another blessing and though it’s been wearing me out to my bones, I know it’s for the best and I’ll get all the time to rest later.
I’m very grateful for all the support I’ve witnessed over the past week; the amount of you that came out to watch me perform, gosh, it was over whelming. 
On a less formal note, I’m super glad at how my ombre worked out. And I’m never cutting my hair again. (Let’s see how long that statement will last). 
So much to be thankful for and so much to strive towards, I’m very excited for the rest of the year. 2014 has been the kindest to me yet. #BLESSED.

  13. Are We Human?

    Let’s get real this fine hazy afternoon in Malaysia.

    I just had lunch and mum switched on the news and for heaven’s sake, the news depresses me to no end. I feel this itch in my soul that just craves for people to be a bit more human. Cos as of now they seem to be more like monsters to me.

    Two stories struck arrows in my heart (and not the nice kind) this afternoon.

    The first one is the 15 year old boy who was neglected by his mother (read about it here) and did not get food for God knows how long and is down to just skin and bones. How dare she treat a human being like that? Let alone a human that came from her very own womb? Where is the empathy? 

    And what breaks me even more is that she’s DEFINITELY not the only one around the world that does this. It’s funny because some mothers in slummier areas around the world sometimes have no choice (due to lack of resources) but to NOT feed their children. And here you are, lady, in a HOUSE, with a roof over your head, and clothes on your well fed body and yet you decide you’re not gonna feed your son? 

    If you didn’t want to take care of a child, then keep your legs crossed and don’t bleeping have one. 

    And then those teenage girls who beat up their school mate. Punching, kicking, banging her head against the wall. (Read about that here). THE WORST part is that somebody was video taping all of this. AND there was a boy looking over and he did not help. 

    Let’s talk about those monsters first. Who the heck do you think you are? Beating another human to the ground? Are you not women? Well of course not, and I tell you, y’all will never be. Where is your respect for one another? Ganging up on one girl? 

    Rude. Y’all just rude and uneducated. No heart within you is it? Where’s your soul? 

    And the one recording this whole thing? Is this fun for you? The amount of hits you get on your video going to satisfy you? What is the purpose?

    Shame on you. Shame on all these girls. Shame on them for even referring themselves as girls. I get that we’re all not princesses, but please tryna be all gangster and junk? You think that’s cool?

    Where is all this angst coming from?

    I’m not a perfect human being. I know I’m not. None of us are. I sin. I make mistakes. But my mistakes and sins never hurt anybody else but me. In the end, I am the one that has to deal with it.

    So don’t. Stop hurting other people just cos it’s more ‘convenient’ for you or if it’s ‘entertaining’ for you. Be careful even with what you say. Stop dragging your schoolmate by the hair (literally) into your own self issues. Kicking her and punching her is not going to get rid of your inner problems. Verbally abusing someone is NOT going to help you forget that you are facing issues. Don’t be so bleeping insecure about yourself that you have to revert to abuse to make yourself feel more of a woman/powerful. 

    Are you hurting? Is someone hurting you at home? Are you a victim of abuse elsewhere outside of school and that’s why you’re abusing this other teen? 

    Talk to someone, for heaven’s sake. Please. Tell someone about it. Cos I can’t seem to figure out another reason why people would beat up others for fun. I’m trying to give them the benefit of the doubt here. Maybe they are troubled. (Yes it isn’t a reason to throw a punch but this is where we, the big sisters in the world, tell them that they can talk to us). Cos if they’re not troubled, then they need to see a psychotherapist. Cos that’s just sick. 

    Please, if you see someone getting hurt, and if you’re too nervous to help, please report them, tell someone, call someone who will help. 

    Stop it. Stop ANY kind of abuse. Think about our future kids and if this kind of environment is really the kind we want them to grow up in?

    Think about your younger siblings/cousins. I fear for Mika everyday. 

    Okay. Cry for help done. 

    Practice kindness and gratitude, guys. And talk to one another.

    No one to talk to? Trouble at school? Talk to me. I’m here.

    Here’s a snippet of a song I just finished. 

    Imagine it being told from an unwritten princess that never got her happy ending.

    Lie by Annatasha.

    Strip me of my songs and smiles and all you’ll see is pain
    I am broken
    My stories and my fairytales have all gone down in flames
    Wounds wide open

    I’ll sing with birds and pick at all the flowers at my feet
    Smiles all around
    The words I’ll sing will tell you all about happy endings
    That never came to me

    Just like the stories

    I’ll lie
    Lie about the butterflies that’ll make your heart flutter
    Lie
    Lie about the princes that will save you from your tower

    —-

    Hopefully I’ll get a proper recording of the full song done soon! I hope you guys like it :)
