To rest or to do

I am always torn between resting and being productive whenever I’m home..may it be a rest day or when I’m on leave being sick, I can’t help but to get up and do what I think is more important than lying around..

But, I guess it has its consequences especially if I am sick but still ok to move around..’coz instead of regaining the strength and restoring what was lost because of sickness, I am depriving myself of it by doing something which I can do at a later time..so! I decided to really stick on DOING what I have laid down on my planner..

Emphasis on DOING..why? I’ve been into to-do-lists eversince and recently joined the planner community. I’ve noticed that there are to-do’s which were rolled-over from previous months that I still haven’t accomplished 😦 isn’t that sad and lazy..it generally defeats the purpose of planning and listing it down in order to remind yourself to get it done within a particular period of time..

This is where discipline and consistency come into the picture so that it’ll become a routine or habit,.it’s hard yes, but if I really like to get things done, I need to be determined in doing it and say to yourself “You go, girl!”..of course, having fun while doing it is a must! It doesn’t have to be treated as a chore..and after each accomplishment, pat yourself on the back and tell yourself “Job well done!” πŸ™‚

happy birthday luhan

~yday, apr20 was exo luhan’s 23rd bday..all us fans were happy forΒ  & was celebrating when an earthquake hit sichuan china..from the tweets that i’ve been reading that day, both luhan & luhan stans readily asked for prayers & help for the victims..

what made me confused were reports of some chinese who bashed luhan+luhan fans online coz inspite of the tragedy in their country, celebration is on-going..huh?..duh!..

fans were preparing for his bday weeks before & its only natural for them to express their love & happiness for luhan on his special day..

the tragedy happened during the celebration & a lil later, it stopped~it was replaced with fansites organizing requests for help & donations for the victims..& boy! support really poured in…from the same fans who were bashed & all..i mean, hello!!!…luhan & the fans answered the ridicule with kindness & warm, generous hearts..

i read that exo-m chinese members changed their dp & wrote words of support & encouragement to the victims & their families..& today, i read that luhan, tao & lay went home to china for personal reasons..(sigh) people can sometimes be quick to judge a person or a situation & more often than not, it causes pain & hurt for those under the scrutiny of society..

this is also quite an eye-opener for me…kudos to the fans/fansites who unconditionally love, support & show good deeds in the name of the artists whom they admire..& to the artists esp. luhan whose 23rd bday isn’t that happy in the end, i commend u & will have my support & admiration..i pray for the victims & their families..

to those whose mind isn’t thinking nicely yday, pls don’t do that again..again, a blessed year for you my bias luhan!

what time is it-2pm

2pm’s what time is it concert in manila was held last march 1.. though we wld like to watch it me & my friend lhen weren’t able to go 😦 ..

we are not fans of their music but me personally likes them as a grp esp when they are on variety programs..i browsed on fanaccounts & other info abt the con & i was impressed with both 2pm & those who watched them..

for 2pm, looked like they enjoyed their stay here & had fun during the con since they tweeted abt it afterwards (i read those of nichkhun, junho, jun.k & chansung)..

for the fans, their support & the fun they experienced on the con (lots of fanservice from the boys from what i’ve read)..& lastly for the producer/organizer of the show for their support & mgt of the whole production since i haven’t read any complaints from those who attended [unlike what we’ve had with ovation prod during bb alive tour ph 😦 ]..

hope i cld watch them when they come bk nxt time..more power 2pm!!

a lil impatient appler

lately im gettin exasperated with gd..

why?..

he is kinda misleading!..

a lot of inves for daragon (dara+g-dragon) has surfaced thru the efforts of applers who untiringly took notes & vids of it but most of his actions are..grrr…

someone tweeted that we shld be ok with him insta-liking pics of kiko since when the time comes that he stops doing it wld mean he is protecting her..makes sense alright considering he said he wld protect the girl he cares for anything his popularity entails..its just that i sometimes waver when i see those insta-likes..

some say that since he is into fashion & kiko is a model it follows that he’ll like her pics BUT there are those of her partying or just with friends & no connection to fashion at all..sigh..maybe another consideration wld be is that they’re friends..yeah..

i can’t help but sometimes compare him to dara’s fanboys who openly at the same time shyly showing their admiration of her..like u-kiss kevin, exo-k chanyeol, suju donghae,swimmer park tae hwan & a lot more..

underrated kpop singers [part 2]

forgot to add the ff. on my underrated kpop singers:

~ jaejoong – my original kpop fave when he was on tvxq..though he already have his own solo mini-album, i wld like one which suits his voice better..nah, not the genre..i me & my friend noticed difference comparing from when he first started up to when they stayed long in japan..am not sure if he was trying to blend with how jap songs are usually sang but it was more feminine than the soothing one that i loved before..more like the voice he used on korean songs like unforgettable, always, whatever they say etc..jap songs like eternal, begin, maze & boyz-2-men song in the still of the night..yah, jj what happened? want ur old voice back..wld be waiting for it..

~b2st’s yoseop is also good..he cld also sing almost any genre..his voice stands out among his co-members..good thing he was given a mini-album project (produced by b2st rapper junhyung if im not mistaken) called caffeine..the tracks are all good..a good-wise buy indeed..

~ next one is a girl grp..their songs are more on hip-hop/rock/dance style but they can also sing love songs..am talkin abt 4minute..sometimes i pity them coz they have the ability to compete strongly even outside of korea (not that good in singing live though) but still they were overtaken by others with less talent..

~ ji eun, leader of secret also has a nice voice..i was awed when i watched her in a special collab with davichi mem (the tall one, 4got her name) & sistar’s hyorin singing beyonce’s listen..small girl, small voice, but can also belt it out with less or no effort at all..

..all mentioned from these two posts are all my opinion..it definitely may differ from others but this is my pov..i know there are others who wld belong on this list if i come across their songs in the future as i strengthen my bond with kpop πŸ™‚

underrated kpop singers [part 1]

i think some of kpop fans would agree with me that quite a number of idol group members are more than good enough to be given solo albums but unfortunately this is not the case..

[1] take a look at snsd’s leader tae yeon..whenever i hear the grp’s songs b4 i thought they all have small-cutey voices, not until i chanced upon a vid of a radio show showing tae yeon singing ‘byul’ [an ost from stairway to heaven]..waaah, she was sooo good!!! a full voice which expresses the feel of the song (even if i don’t understand d lyrics at 1st), even a non-korean like me was deeply touched..from then on i collected vids of her singing live XD i sooo love her voice.she was asked to do ost songs from time to time & each time, a lot of people love it..which made me think why do sme doesn’t give her a solo album? she more than deserved it..

[2] another one from the same agency is luna of f(x)..not ur typical idol from a girl grp in terms of looks but her voice is really something, it stood above the rest of her co-members in every song (blends perfectly with krystal’s voice though)..but when i was able to watch her one time in immortal songs 2, she didn’t impressed me as much as tae yeon singing live..but still, she’s really good..

[3] next on my list are exo-k’s main vocals baekhyun & d.o..never thought i wld like this grp..when they debuted, i was still bitter abt the separation of tvxq members that i saw them as sme’s way of trying to make them big as if to be possible replacements [their image, mama song & dance moves say it all]..but when i happened to see a vid of open arms at dkfc mla i was stunned! their voices & english pronunciation is perfect! (on the side: baekhyun+d.o’s what is love is my personal fave XD)..

[4] 2ne1’s maknae minzy is next..i first noticed her voice during i don’t care live stage. many thinks she’s the dance rep of the grp but the thing is, she can sing really good as well..sometimes even better than bom in some live stages [no offense meant to bom]..

i guess the kpop industry trend towards idol groups more than individual capabilities of an artist… it looks like agencies benefit more than the talents..hope those talents wldn’t be wasted though..
