Day 03 - 5 Songs to have in a deserted island

For me to only have 5 songs on a deserted island, I would have to listen to the same songs over and over and not get bored. Either that, or it gives me motivation everytime I hear it. =) 

1) The Lazy Song - Bruno Mars

I can never get bored of this song. =P
There was one time I looped this song over and over while doing my assignment for 3 hours straight! And yeah, I did actually get my assignment done, contradicting the theme of the song I was listening to when I did it. XP

2) I'm Yours - Jason Mraz

This is also another song which I can't get bored of. Most times I can't really catch the lyrics, so for some songs I only like the catchy tune. But for this song, it has both a catchy tune and good lyrics! Not to mention Jason Mraz just does wonders with his voice. =D

3) Picture to Burn - Taylor Swift

Just because the attitude of this song is like "So what?" So what if you don't love me? So what if I'm stuck on a deserted island? This song would definitely keep me going, surviving everything God has to throw at planned for me. =)

4) 少年 - 曹格 & 光良
FYI, I'm not banana, I listen to Mandarin and Cantonese songs too! =p
For those who can't read Mandarin, this song portrays the unchanging principle of a young man despite the world which is trying to change him. Alone on a deserted island, this song will remind me to be strong willed and also give me some motivation to go through each day. =)

5) God is Good - Don Moen
Need I say more? This is one of the upbeat worship songs that I like the most and almost always keeps me in high spirit! Don't get me wrong, it's not that the slow songs are not good, but at the end of it they make me emo, and in addition to that, I'm all alone on a deserted island! We don't want that now, do we? =)

Day 02- Inspiration

I can be inspired by practically anything I see in daily life. Be it the people on the street, the pigeons flying about or even buildings. It's probably how I would see and relate things differently from most people. Try playing Taboo with me and you'll know what I mean. =)

Back to the topic, I find that people inspires me the most... Especially people, whom despite their disability, performs better in life compared to most people without disabilities... 

1) My deceased cousin
My cousin was borned with a disease that degenerates his muscles. At birth, even doctors gave him a maximum lifespan of only 30yrs old. I actually wrote a post about him after his funeral, so I'll just post the link here. 

2) The people in this video
Two dancers, he without arm, she without leg.

3) Ordinary people doing extraordinary deeds. Nuff' said.

Most of all, I'm always inspired by the people around me. My family, friends, relatives. Sometimes I have to look past the appearances to really appreciate what they're doing. And sad to say, I only learnt how to do that in recent years. At least, now that I can 'see' it, I can learn to appreciate it even more, especially when it goes unspoken. =)

Cheers to 30-Day Blogging Challenge. =)

Day 01- Guilty Pleasure

Hmm... Guilty pleasure? I guess for me it would be gluttony. I used to just eat whenever I don't have anything else to do at home, which explains why junk food will never last a week in my house. =p


I used to eat till the brim at buffets until I literally cannot walk. And when I can, I would go grab more food, lol. And the cycle repeats until it is time to leave. =p


But officially, I guess KFC would be my guilty pleasure. Everytime I have their chicken, I would first peel off the crispy skin, revealing all the oil beneath it that starts to drip onto the plate. Even seeing and knowing all the unhealthy effects it would bring to my body, I can still chuck it into my mouth and savour every bite! =p


But their chicken is only second best, the best thing they have to offer is still their CHEESY WEDGES!! Even after they started charging RM1 for extra cheese, I'd still go for it coz it's definitely worth it!! You know how unevenly spread the cheese is on the wedges when it is served? I would make sure that each one is well coated with cheese before eating it. And even after, I would finish every last bit of cheese left in the box. =p

Guilty I felt, but the pleasure was overwhelming!! =D

Cheers to 30-day Blogging Challenge. =)
