Piano & Violin Cover of Corrine May - The Answer. :)

Hello darlings! Do you miss me? Hahahahaha! It has been days since I updated any selca pics in my blog. XD Been pretty lifeless lately, hence I only updated all those beautiful things to share with you guys because I have basically nothing happening in my life. :'(

Anyway, I've been up to a video project starting 2 days ago, thanks to my dear sis, Lei Panganiban! ;) She's a beautiful ice-skating princess that I get to know on Facebook. She won a lot of prizes in International ice-skating competitions, really impressive and talented!

Lei had tagged me in a video "The Answer by Corrine May" and she said she hoped she could hear me play it in violin. So I think, why not? LOL.

I tried to google for some accompaniment mp3 of that song but came up with nothing. And I can't play the piano and violin at the same time LOL. What to do??? At first I really wanted to make those amazing videos like JunCurryAhn or Pianoguys did in their videos, which was creating your "clones"! Haha! Sadly I have no idea how that's done. So...... I'm can only record piano and violin separately and then use my ultra newbie movie-making skill, which is "split","remove","fade in","fade out" and adding Titles, Captions and Credits. LOL LOL. #noobie I'm really sad that the music isn't in one piece. :'( Anyway, I'll try to do better next time, so please bear with it for now. T______T 





Anyway before going to the video, have to shower this post with some selca pictures first. Hahahaha! These pictures are taken in the middle of recording because my mom's friend suddenly came to visit so we had to cut off the recording session for a while. ;D

















Btw my brother took away our printer, so I can't print the piano scores out. I'm too lazy to find some printing shops lol, so I put the whole lappy on my piano and sight-reading like that WTH. XDDDD

Credits to my mom for being the videographer! :) I took around an hour to practise and then record. I know there're still a lot of space for improvement. :)
Again, I'm really sorry for the whole cut-paste quality of the video. :(( It ruins the music because it sounds like it's in pieces. T____T



I'll try to learn more about recording & movie-making skills so I can do better next time! :)

Hope you guys like it! :)

Girl With One Eye (Hebe Cover)

Stumbled upon this awesome cover of Girl With One Eye by Hebe.
Super awesome! Hahahahaha!!!

This is specially for those girls who are experiencing some hard times because their bfs are cheating on them over some other girls.
If you can't do anything about that, sing this song with your heart out.
The lyrics are so vicious omg. LOL.




She told me not to step on the cracks
I told her not to fuss and relax
Pretty little face stopped me in my tracks
But now she sleeps with one eye open
That's the price she'll pay

I took a knife and cut out her eye
I took it home and watched it wither and die
Well, she's lucky that I didn't slip her a smile
That's why she sleeps with one eye open
That's the price she'll pay

I said, hey, girl with one eye
Get your filthy fingers out of my pie
I said, hey, girl with one eye
I'll cut your little heart out cause you made me cry

I slipped my hand under her skirt
I said don't worry, it's not gonna hurt
Oh, my reputation's kinda clouded with dirt
That's why you sleep with one eye open
But that's the price you pay

I said, hey, girl with one eye
Get your filthy fingers out of my pie
I said, hey, girl with one eye
I'll cut your little heart out cause you made me cry

You made me cry
You made me cry
You made me cry

I said, hey, girl with one eye
Get your filthy fingers out of my pie
I said, girl with one eye
Get your filthy fingers out my pie

I said, hey, girl with one eye
Get your filthy fingers out of my pie
I said, hey, girl with one eye
I'll cut your little heart out cause you made me cry



ps: just in case anyone making assumptions that I'm undergoing the situation like this right now. LOL. No I'm not, I'm just finding it immensely entertaining so I just share it! Hahahaha! So guys, don't underestimate a girl when she's hurt. LOL LOL.

Desserts For Your Mind.

A few days more I'll go back to Shanghai! And for the time being, I'm in the process of making another video. :) Hopefully everything will turn out fine. It's harder to do without all those recording microphones and stuff. Guess I'll have to deal with everything using my loyal Samsung Galaxy SIII. :D

Anyways, let's have some desserts for our mind today! :)




Talent is a gift that brings with it an obligation to serve the world, and not ourselves, for it is not of our making.










"I don't wait for moods. You accomplish nothing if you do that. Your mind must know it has got to get down to work."










Talent is cheap; dedication is expensive. It will cost you your life.











Words are things. A small drop of ink, falling like dew upon a thought, produces that which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.










The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.











I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.











You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.











The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.












There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.











To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.










No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater...The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that's the key. It's like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot.











Your mind is the garden. Your thoughts are the seed. You can grow flowers, or you can grow weeds.











Why try so hard to fit in, when you’re born to stand out?











Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.












A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.












Beauty doesn’t last forever, but a beautiful personality does.












Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.












People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.











The happiest people don’t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.











I like flaws. I think they make things interesting.

ToddleWood.

Hello peeps! How about some cuteness for today! :))))) Check out this awesome photo project by Tricia Messeroux named as ToddleWood! :)))


So far this awards season, Beasts of the Southern Wild star  Quvenzhané Wallis  has been the most adorable star to walk the red carpet, but now thanks to the pint-sized stars of New York-based project ToddleWood, she’s got some cute competition.
Founded by former advertising executive-turned-photographer, Tricia Messeroux, the ToddleWood project imagines everyday kids as A-list celebrities, historic figures and other icons. The idea was born in 2008, when Messeroux decided to shoot her then-three year old daughter, Skylar. “I’ve been told that she looks like Diana Ross so I said, ‘You know what? I guess I’m going to play along and photograph her looking like Diana Ross.’ We did that and I realized I had something on my hands,” Messeroux told EW. “I called a few women that I knew were very talented in different areas: wardrobe stylists, dress designers, makeup, hair–these women that were talented in all these different areas that I needed– and I held a casting call.”
Since the first shoot, Messeroux has received submissions from hundreds of pint-sized hopefuls. “My process now to think about what the look that I want to  achieve is, so it needs to be an iconic celebrity or a political figure or someone notable, or a moment in time,” she explained. ”Like when Tom Cruise jumped on Oprah’s couch, or when the Obama’s did the fist bump. It has to be either a really fantastic look or moment in time.”






1. Miniature “clone” Lucy Liu.









 2. Miniature “clone” Kerry Washington.







 3. Miniature “clone” Halle Berry .







 4. Miniature “clone” Taylor Swift.







 5. Miniature “clones” of George Clooney and Stacy Keibler.






  6. Miniature “clone” Anne Hathaway.








7. Miniature “clones" of Tom Cruise & Oprah.








8. Miniature “clone” of Adele.








9. Miniature “clone” of Taylor Swift.









10. Miniature “clone” of Rihanna.










11. Miniature “clone” of Audrey Hepburn.











12. Miniature “clone” of Chaplin.









13. Miniature “clones" of the famous fist bump.










14. Miniature “clones" of Sex and the City.








Prep Time
From casting, to recreating the clothes, to the actual photo shoot, Messeroux and her  ToddleWood team turned around the Golden Globes project in just two days. “I had a casting call on Saturday—literally 24 hours before the Globes. I didn’t know who or what was going to end up on the red carpet wearing what,” she said. “On Sunday, my team and I watched the Golden Globes and studied the red carpet to look for the right dresses.”
Not every frock made the cut. “The right dress is something I happen to like and I think my designer can [recreate]. It also needs to be something that is kid appropriate,” Messeroux explains. “There were several designs where the plunging neckline was way too low, and then there were the sheer and paste-on looks like Jennifer Lopez’s dress. Although it was very beautiful, I will not be the one to put a kid in that dress.”


Recreating the Looks
The child-size dresses are designed and handcrafted by Andrea Pitter, who turned around the entire wardrobe for the shoot in just one day.  “We chose the looks that night and I called the parents of the models to get the kids’ measurements,” explains Messeroux. “[Andrea] started making the patterns that night. Monday morning she went to the fashion district to get all the fabric, while I did all the shopping for the props. We didn’t sleep Monday night.”


Hair and Makeup
ToddleWood’s glam squad — including lead hair and make-up artist Shameika Bowman, hairstylists Danielle Wright and Sharon Alexander and makeup artist Charlene Armstrong — gave the little models the full star treatment on set. “Hair and makeup tends to be the kids’ favorite part,” Messeroux says. “They let people pamper them, they eat Goldfish and Oreos, and when they’re ready we ohh and ahh over them and clap for them and make them feel like they’re the kings and queens of the earth. They love it!”
And just like real Hollywood stars, the kids often need a few minor (but temporary) enhancements to pull off the look. “They’ll wear hair extensions or wigs to help complete a look when necessary.  For instance, Halle and Anne’s hairstyles are short, and models had long hair,” says Messeroux, who adds that the team uses Make Up Forever products.


Ready, Set, Pose!
How does Messeroux get her kid models to nail those red carpet poses? “The moms usually show [their kids] pictures beforehand. They come to the shoot pretty much ready because it’s clear that they’ve been practicing,” the photographer explains. “It can take about 15 minutes to get the right shot.”  She’s got to be quick when dealing with short attention spans.  “We pretty much turned the whole thing out in four hours.”


ToddleWood is Growing
Up next, ToddleWood will tackle the Oscars red carpet, and Messeroux is considering taking on the Grammys. “The Grammys have some of the most outrageous outfits, which for someone like, me is exciting,” she said. By then, The ToddleWood Agency should be up and running. “It is a response to the demand. A lot of people ask me how to get their child into the business, and I have tons of kids on my roster from submissions for ToddleWood, so I decided to marry my 15 years of experience in advertising and my experience casting kids and taking pictures to create an agency.”
ToddleWood also offers photography packages for kids who want to have their own Hollywood moment.

If I have a baby, he/she will grow up with a dog. :)

Hello dearies, I don't really have much things about my current life to blog about, though I do have a lot of beautiful posts to share with you guys! :)

I've started this beautiful photo + quotes post this week and seems like it is a real hit! So I'll continue to post more of these posts for you guys.

It never hurt to get inspired, right? ;D

Today, let's continue on our journey of epiphany and meanwhile bask yourself in the beautiful friendship of toddlers/kids and dogs! :) If I'm going to have a baby someday in the future, I'll make sure he/she grows up with a dog. :)








Now and then it is good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.











Keep away from all the people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you too can become great.











Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.











What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. 











There are hundreds of paths up the mountain, all leading to the same place, so it doesn't matter which path you take. The only person wasting time is the one who runs around the mountain, telling everyone that his or her path is wrong.











The easiest thing to be in the world is you. The most difficult thing to be in the world is what other people want you to be.












We are all a little weird, and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them, fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.












If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it's not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That's why it's your path.












The chief enemy of creativity is good sense.












Everything in life comes to you as a teacher. Pay attention. Learn quickly.











We are not on this earth to accumulate victories, things and experiences, but to be whittled and sandpapered until what's left is who we truly are.











Fail, fail again, fail better.












We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.











Talent is God-given. Be Humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.











Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.












It always seem impossible until it is done.











No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.












The way to happiness: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, expect little, give much. Scatter sunshine, forget yourself, and think of others.








Have a great day peeps! ;)
