  1. Nas and Alex of MAGIC! karaoke-ing to Rude by MAGIC! 

    Enter sweat emoticon here.

     
  2. Shots by Paulius. 
It’s been one hell of a weekend! Saturday was insane cos it started with rehearsals for a show this Tuesday + baking Macarons for an event + taking photos at the Guinness Amplify event for Dash (my favourite band hello have I mentioned?)
The boys put on a killer show Saturday night and as always, I felt drained after their set; just listening to their music is just a different experience altogether (and bear in mind I was on stage shooting them!) 
I’m so happy with how the photos turned out (I also invested in a new lens huhu) and after I finished my part, we all put our instruments aside and went on to enjoy the rest of the night! 
We took so many photos, or rather, had so many photos taken of us by Paul (Photographer of shots above! Do check out his work! He’s EVERYWHERE in Kuala Lumpur). We played elementary school games in the middle of the crowd and danced to OJ Law and MAGIC! and even after the event ended, we goofed around backstage till the place was being torn down. 
When I got home Saturday night (Sunday morning; whatever), one of my ladies, Elena calls me asking if I’d want to accompany her to take the boys of MAGIC! on a tour around the city the next day. I said yes and that led to yesterday, one whole day filled with walking around the city.
In short, we went to two markets of Kuala Lumpur (Petaling Street, Central Market), took the boys to eat Banana Leaf at Devi’s, and then took the boys for some Karaoke (They were the ones who suggested this bit)! 
There’s nothing quite like watching MAGIC! karaoke to MAGIC! Haha. They put on their hit single Rude and started singing it in three part harmonies, with their video clip playing right behind them. 
Will post the group photo of us after this as well as the karaoke video.
Cheers to another long week ahead!

  10. I just moved into my new room that’s just downstairs instead of upstairs. Honestly, I didn’t know what my mother was thinking when she told me she was going to turn a common area of the house into my own little loft unit, even after she had learned that I was applying to Berklee and that I may (had I got in, and yes, I did, #grateful) not even be around to enjoy her latest greatest idea. My mother spoils me and I vow never to take advantage of that. I guess traveling is where I like to spend my hard earned money, and home building is where my mother likes to spend hers. 

    I’ve only got this to show for now cos it’s the section that I’ve been working on the hardest; I call it my Cuddle Corner. I guess this is where I’ll journal and read the books I’ve been meaning to read, with photos of what’s happened over the past two years (best years of my life… so far). Come tomorrow, there’ll be 71 (yes, we counted) more photos for me to put on my wall, and I can’t wait to show you guys the final result!

    When I get every other part set up, such as my bed area, where I’ll hang up art from Candace McKay, Elroseabel and Maja, or my living room area downstairs (yes, it’s loft room! I’m a lucky girl!) I’ll take proper photos and show y’all.

    As for the life update. Life is good.

    Not just content anymore, as how I would repeatedly say over the past couple of months. I’m very happy—busy, but happy—and I’m just loving how everything has fallen into place for me thus far. Yeah, sure, I usually wouldn’t wanna jinx it but I just thought I’d let everyone know that shit turns out fine. And if you work and make yourself happy, your ‘fine’ will turn into a ‘great’.

    To be honest, emotionally I had a rough past 12 months. You know, boys. (If you’re a dude, I’m sure you know how I feel too. We’re all the same! Emotional human beings!) There was a hole I fell into that I could have sworn I wouldn’t get out of.

    Please trust me. I’m sure you must be wondering, how miserable could she have been? All her pictures she seems pretty chill. Oh it was bad. Days spent in bed wallowing and crying over things that weren’t even in my control, then going out with friends just to suffer even more cos I felt the need to hold my junk together, then coming home and repeating the misery fest all over again.

    But here I am, and I made it out alive. And I was taught to not take things too seriously when it comes to the matter of the heart. Let it ride along with the current. Don’t try to speedboat your way through the forest because you’ll miss all the beauty in between. And don’t get yourself into situations you don’t want to be in. If the situation is sticky, and you feel uncomfortable, you have all the right to just get out of it. There is no “I have to stay”. You are in control of yourself. Please don’t let anyone else influence your decisions when it comes to your emotions. 

    I am very happy. Because new beginnings have begun. My heart is in an extraordinary place and a place I never thought it could be, or rather, expected it to be. 

    Whatever emotional ‘romantic’ heart booboos you’re going through right now, it’ll blow over. I was just on Skype with Avelyn last night and she was the first one to make me realise that I got out of that black hole. She pointed at me and went, “I told you it’ll all get better.”

    Of course, it’s not that easy, or quick, but the time will come that you’ll be happy (that’s if right now you’re feeling sad). 

    And I’m telling you this from experience fresh out of the oven. When you think it’s the worst thing that could ever happen to you, it really isn’t, and worse things will come, but even that, you’ll soldier through. You just gotta be sure it doesn’t consume you. 

    I am fine. And you are fine.

    If you’re not, you will be. Have faith in yourself. You’re stronger than you think. 

    Till tomorrow, friends!

     
  11. Hi ann! What do you looking for from a guy? Idk how to ask act. Well i'm into someone who's just like you. Cute, smart, have a good sense on fashion. But i think she's out of my league. Can i ask some advice from you?
    answer:

    Well, never put yourself down, first off. You’re never gonna get the girl with that kind of attitude!

    And she may be just like me, but I doubt we have similar tastes in men! As for me though, I love someone who can make me laugh, even when I’m so gosh darn upset about something. And he needs to be able to talk about anything and everything with me! Even if it’s random conversations! 

    I also tend to like people who are musically inclined because I love music so much. *sweat emoticon* But that just seems to be a subconscious thing! 

    Just go for it. If you try, and it doesn’t work out, at least you won’t be asking yourself what if.

     
  12. How would you react to negativity?
    asked by figuringanewlife
    answer:

    I don’t. Reacting is still giving the negativity what it wants. So I just push it aside and try to pull through with the positive aspects of my situation. 

    It’s easy when you remember there’s love everywhere around you, even if it’s not from someone else, it’s from yourself! <3

     
  13. Hi annatasha! I wanna see you again 😭😭😭
    asked by immacrazychick
    answer:

    Let’s do it! <3 

     
  14. Emotions are a funny thing.
    One moment they tell you you’ll probably never be happy again,
    The next, your emotions are blazing with a light that warms your soul right out to the skin on your being.

    Happy, is me.

    Leaving this here for you if you wanna make your life a little more dashing (badumtss). 

    Spread the love. 100% Malaysian made.
