Bye I'm off to Indonesia. Apparently my boss is there too but in East Java, totally far apart from where I'm heading to, Batam for family-related business.

Shoutout to Ferlyn!
A big thank you for your help & your wonderful lyrics! :D
*now to get the vocals recorded. Wakaka.
2 new things...
I've gotten a Canon Ixus 95 camera. It only has 10 mega-pixels. However, its quality is tremendous!

Lol I was tweeting about this too.
Auto-tune fully utilized. This ain't T-Pain, it's Kanye going "Yo Taylor, yo-yo-yo Taylor".
Oh yeah, once again they featured Kanye at the VMAs.
That shit's getting old. However, this is different. :P

First of all, I must really thank Ferlyn Wong for writing the lyrics to one of my songs. :)
Am so glad that she was elated to do it!
Gonna see the lyrics for the first time once I catch up with her.
Second of all, my cover on T-Pain's "Bartender" has been completed. Equalizing with auto-tune OF COURSE.
I mean, he's the auto-tune king and all, and if I covered his song without auto-tune, I'm very sure it's not gonna be in the same league at the end.
Here's the cover! Enjoy!
*Point to note, every vocal part was sung by me (excluding the first 2 "yea" and "uh-huh"). :P The minus one was just beats & melody.

ONE of my favourite songs ever.
Auto-tune is great! Lol.
I don't care what people say about auto-tune, what about it spoiling good music and all.
If you are a composer or a musician, you must be open and be ready to absorb almost everything without complain.
I think auto-tune is creative!
Of course, use it the right way and not to make up for vocal flaws.
People around the world say "it should be used in parts, and wisely, not overused."
I agree 50-50. My reason: Music is a sense of choice, as long as you're doing it great, I believe people should respect your choice. I agree with over-usage, however, if it is what a particular singer chooses to have throughout his or her song, then it's still a matter & principle of respecting his music.
If you're gonna tell me that it should be about SINGING without having to use some holy effect, then tell me this, why are some singers focusing more on their looks than their voices?
Auto-tune was greatly accepted by many listeners around the world when Cher released "Believe" in 1999. Top 10 music in the Billboard Chart that year.
However, producers used a vocoder instead of the current auto-tune application.
There's another more primitive device called the Talkbox.
One can easily plug that into a synthesizer (KORG M50 is one of them hehs!)
or a guitar and off you go.
It's simpler and not so complex as a vocoder or auto-tune (one electronic and the other digital respectively).
Nonetheless, auto-tune is already a part of the music industry, especially in Rnb/hip-hop/DJ/Pop (a lil' here and there) genres.
It will, however, eventually become passe’– and fade from pop music accordingly.
But in the meantime, take it down and live with it!

My house is currently under renovation. :D
Saw a 2 storey scaffolding raised up from the ground in my living room.
Awesome sight at home! Lol.
It was there to replace some lightings way at the top of the 2 storey ceiling, some of which have malfunctioned.
*Will add photos and a video when I get back home.
He got owned! Quite badly I might say. "Slang (I would have whooped them kids if it were me)"
Swap "Cuckoo" with "Yo"! Lol
Posted by BearBrickER at 3:14 PM I've said it on Twitter and I'll say it here.
I think I've been blogging, almost everyday since a few days back!
Crazy, gonna channel my focus on freelance work (I need my freaking pay!), music (both composing and performing [subbed into singing and playing!]).
I've been working everyday for my freelance work as an agreement between me and the boss.
Have to get it done before the December launch date in North America, which is EVERYTHING done by 30 November.
Anyway, to cool myself down from severe stress, I think of my trip and new changes to my house. Wait, plus, material needs?? =P
Buffet lunch with family at Sakura, I think I'm hating that place more and more.
Afterwards, went to get the winter jacket which I like a lot! You have to see and feel it in person to get its quality! :D

In an unlikely event, my house tiling has somehow uprooted!
*Caused problems for my film crew. However I can't answer to things like these.
It isn't good for my family to walk about on it so my parents decided to replace the floor with a brand new material and look! Chose one of these. Make a guess. :)
I like! Nice!
If only they had something like this in Singapore, I would not take the escalator any longer! :)

Oakley Sunglasses: The Best of all SunglassesJust put down a deposit for this hot lenses from Oakley.
Wait a minute, of course I wouldn't buy just the lenses alone right? That's just common sense lol.
Polished White Oakley Radar Path frames with Positive Red Iridium lenses!
PACKING MY LUGGAGE...
I used to hate packing, usually at the last minute type of packing, for overseas trips but it has been much better recently!
I had to wear 2 layers of gloves on each hand last year because the temperature in Beijing and especially Tianjin was really freaking minus 5 degree celcius cold! It was biting dood!
Oh ya, not forgetting the caps and trucker caps! (If you think this is a lot I have more than this wakaka! :P)
Point to note if you're using new hard case luggages: I used it for my Beijing trip and on the way there and back the baggage men poorly handled our luggages. For a hard casing, I expected a few scratches and maybe rubbed marks here and there. I was correct, except for one thing, one of the 2 locks came loose and it was almost impossible to get my luggage to fully close. I had to depend on the other lock to keep my stuffs inside secured.
Anyway, I travelled by SIA so I called them up. SIA has really great services! They specially came to my house to pick up my then-spoilt luggage, sent it to their baggage repair centre and delivered it back to my house FOC.

Michael JJ's This Is It
Great movie! Caught it with Huanjie ls, Collin, Wendy, Jasmine, Stephanie and Iris (were there 2 more ppl? lol nvm). It was so disheartening to see those people who put in SO MUCH effort (including high budget filming productions), new moves by Michael Jackson himself, all the respect he received, even from the director (Kenny). Michael JJ was, at all times, controlling the stage.This was part of the 2009 training where MJ did his patented Smooth Criminal "anti-gravity lean". (Photo is part of the "This Is It" CD album.
Also, right before watching "This Is It", went out with Huanjie ls, Wen Hao, Fiona, Iris, Chun Rong, Wendy and Alex to catch "Jennifer's Body". It was a rather, evil & scary but funny movie. Even the critiques say so. Lol.
Wen Hao got very frightened during the movie wahahha (I laughed because I saw him literally moved when he was shocked :P I guess he won't be able to watch scarier films, I can't too but "Jennifer's Body" was of average horror to me).
Chun Rong kept laughing! Wth! lolol but it's all good anyway.
