[IFW 2017] “Passion” in Between with Maria Calista

Fashion show bertema passion ini memang dibagi menjadi 2 bagian. Selagi menanti bagian ke-2, kami dihibur oleh suara merdu seorang Maria Calista yang menyanyikan lagu singlenya berjudul “Satu kali lagi” dan cover lagu “Closer”.

maria

Seorang penyanyi yang sosoknya sedikit mengingatkan saya kepada Agnes Monica, baik dari wajah maupun kemampuan menyanyinya (kebetulan saya pernah menonton penampilan live Agnes Monica).

Selama ini mendengar single “Satu kali lagi” melalui radio atau via youtube. Kali ini menyaksikan langsung penampilannya yang ternyata sungguh memukau. Menurut saya, suara live Maria lebih bagus daripada rekamannya.

What a talented singer.

Descendants of the Sun OST List

Descendants-of-the-Sun

Another kdramas in my waiting list for 2016 is finally airing, Descendants of the Sun. Really curious of how it will be since the writer is the great Kim Eun Sook. Not to mention the lead cast is our Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo.

Both of them are my favorites. Love Song Hye Kyo since Autumn Tales era till now. While Song Joong Ki, well, first time I saw him was in Triple. And this is his new drama after serving his nation in Military. So, who is not gonna be excited to watch him again after 2 years, right.

One more thing, this drama shooting is already ended aka pre-produced, which is I believe, just like Cheese in The Trap, the cinematography and the editing or the scene showing will be just perfect since they have time to make it the best they can. Furthermore, from what I saw, we will be spoiled by many topless soldier scene, Oh dear…

After watching their first 2 episodes, I know I have been fallen in love. And fortunately, it aired during the time when I felt down because of the lack of JungSeol moment in Cheese In The Trap. Somehow, it lifted my kdramas spirit up.

But hey, it just been 2 episode, don’t know about the rest. But I like what I’ve seen so far. The drama kinda reminds me of “Tour of Duty” (a drama aired back in the eighties. beside about war, friendship, military, it also about love between a Liutenant and a doctor. What a memories).

25 Boyband Tahun 90-an Yang Pernah Menghiasi Hidupku

Ketika saya sedang menonton drama korea Yongpal, tiba-tiba muncul sepenggal lagu yang dinyanyikan oleh boyband Westlife * Yongpal memutar lagu tersebut dari HP-nya untuk Yeo Jin. *. Sejak saat itu, entah mengapa, saya jadi mengubek-ubek database mp3 hanya sekadar untuk mendengarkan semua lagu Westlife. Rasanya, nostalgia banget.

Di saat anak-anak remaja, ABG, alay, atau apalah sebutan anak muda jaman sekarang lebih menggandrungi boyband asal negeri ginseng, Korea dengan aliran musik mereka yang terkenal sebagai Kpop, saya dengan bangganya ingin memproklamirkan bahwa saya dengan ini, lebih dulu mengenal Boyband daripada kalian semua * hahaha, terus kenapa coba. * Tapi, boyband jaman saya dulu tentu saja didominasi oleh boyband besutan Amerika atau Eropa, terutama Inggris * Saat itu, MTV sedang dalam masa kejayaannya di Indonesia. Sehingga saya terekspos dengan banyak musik barat asal US dan UK. *

Kalau boyband jaman sekarang identik dengan yang namanya ketampanan alias kegantengan para anggotanya * suara mah nomor ke berapa kali ya, yang penting kemasan luarnya, * boyband jaman saya tumbuh besar dulu didominasi juga sama yang namanya ketampanan dan kegantengan.

Nah loh, apa bedanya coba?

Letak perbedaannya adalah tingkat ketampanannya. Kalau jaman dulu kayanya Jordan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Nick carter, Ronan Keating, Robbie Williams, Justin Timberlake itu udah pool bangets guantengnyah. Kalo diliat anak jaman sekarang palingan mereka dibilang biasa aja kali ya, atau bahkan culun kali ya * maklum beda generasi, beda tren, beda style. * Maklum aja sih, boyband jaman sekarang emang saya akui cakep-cakep bener anggotanya, bahkan kadang lebih cakep ketimbang saya.

Anyway, setidaknya bagi saya, mereka cakep semua * buktinya saya sampai menempel poster mereka dikala saya muda belia kekekeke. *

1. New Kids On The Blocks (1984)

nkotb

Ini adalah boyband pertama yang saya kenal. The one and only, NKOTB. Anggotanya Donnie Wahlberg, Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight, Danny Wood, Joe McIntyre. Boyband terkeren sepanjang masa. Siapa coba yang ga kenal “step by step. oh baby… ” Aaah… very nostalgic. My bias in this group is Jordan and Joey * kyaaaa… fangirling mode: ON *

Check this: Step by step, Tonight

2. All 4 One (1994) AS

all 4 one

Jamie Jones, Delious Kennedy, Alfred Nevarez, dan Tony Borowiak. Ini adalah salah satu boyband yang menjual suara dibanding tampang. Jujur, saya cuma kenal 2 lagu dari grup ini. Lagu yang paling terkenal adalah “I swear” sampai-sampai kayanya ini lagu sering dipakai pada saat acara ‘nembak,’ pernikahan, sampai prom night karena liriknya yang bikin klepek-klepek. This song still remain in my playlist until now.

I swear….by the moon and the stars in the sky… I’ll be there, for better or worst, till death do us part. I’ll love you with every beat of my heart and I swear.”

Check this: I swear

3. Boyzone (1993) Inggris

boyzone

Keith Duffy, Mikey Graham, Ronan Keating, Shane Lynch, dan Stephen Gately (RIP). Di jamannya, boyband ini cukup merajai di dunia. Saya pribadi masih mendengarkan puluhan lagu mereka hingga saat ini. Teramat cintanya saya sama mereka, sampai-sampai saya setia mengikuti kiprah si vokalis utama Ronan Keating yang bersolo karier. Dunia saya sempat runtuh ketika Stephen mengakui bahwa dirinya Gay, dan semakin runtuh lagi ketika Stephen meninggal dunia di tahun 2009.

Check this: All that I need, Love me for a reason, Picture of you

4. Backstreet Boys (1993) AS

backstreet boys

Keep The Backstreet Pride Alive!

Nick Carter, Kevin, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, dan A.J is the Backstreet Boys. I don’t think they ever been forgotten. Pertama kali mengenal boyband ini, yang ada dipikiran waktu itu cuma, “Ya Allah, ganteng-ganteng banget” dan orang-orang ganteng ini bilang, “I’ll never break your heart…” * huhuhuhu melted * Alhasil, poster mereka memenuhi dinding kamar saya saat itu juga. My bias in here, definitely Nick and Kevin * meskipun porsi menyanyi si Kevin sangat minim. *

Check this: I’ll never break your heart, as long as you love me.

5. NSYNC (1995) AS

nsync

Here come the amazing NSYNC! I can write pages about them.

Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, dan Justin Timberlake are my men. Saat saya mengira kalau Backstreet Boys is the best that I have, datanglah NSYNC. Ini adalah boyband pertama yang membuat saya benar-benar terkagum-kagum. Satu-satunya boyband yang semua anggotanya menaklukkan hati saya * I don’t have specific bias here since they all great.”

Betapa tidak, bagi saya mereka adalah cikal-bakal boyband-boyband KPOP saat ini. Boyband yang menawarkan paket lengkap, mulai dari wajah, penampilan, suara, musik, dance yang sinkron, koreografi, outfit, dan musik video. Benar-benar sebuah paket lengkap. Sampai-sampai saya selalu tidak mau ketinggalan setiap kali TV menyiarkan konser mereka secara LIVE, hanya karena they are the best when they are LIVE.

Bahkan ketika di MTV ada acara yang namanya Battle of Boybands antara Backstreet Boys dan NSYNC, I definitely chose them as the winner * sorry BSB, doesn’t mean that I don’t love you though. Cos I do.

One last thing. Ini adalah boyband yang melahirkan Justin Timberlake * walaupun Justin sudah terkenal bahkan sebelum ia bergabung dengan NSYNC. * Tapi, boyband inilah yang membuat namanya makin mendunia dan dicintai jutaan gadis belia termasuk saya, sampai saat ketika saya mengetik tulisan ini * I am a die hard fan. *

Check this: Bye Bye Bye, Tearin’ up my heart, This I promise you.

6. Hanson (1992) AS

hanson

Isaac Hanson, Taylor Hanson, dan Zac Hanson is not literally a boyband * tapi dari kacamata saya yang masih remaja saat itu, mereka tampak bagai boyband. * Saya memang bukan penggemar berat berat mereka. Tapi, mau tidak mau saya jadi suka lantaran teman sebangku saya ketika SMA * sebut saja namanya Erry * tergila-gila sama yang namanya Taylor Hanson.

Sampai-sampai yang dibicarakan selalu saja Taylor. Sampai-sampai nama belakangnya ditambahin Taylor Hanson. Sampai-sampai mengaku-ngaku kalau dia adalah istrinya Taylor * OMG. * Sementara saya, sering minder sama si Taylor karena dia lebih cantik daripada saya T_T

Check this: Mmmbop, I will come to you.

7. The Moffats (1990) Kanada

the-moffatts-b2a3a4a2-8c16-4ea4-9123-4a85ed94ad88 the moffats skrg 2

Scott Moffatt, Clint Moffatt, Bob Moffatt, dan Dave Moffatt. Uh huh, another siblings as a band. The moffat sebenarnya lebih merupakan band daripada Boyband karena mereka semua bisa memainkan alat musik, sama seperti Hanson. Daya tarik mereka * selain lagunya tentu saja * adalah kenyataan bahwa ada kembar 3 digrup mereka. I mean, kembar 3, identic pula, super mirip. Jadi, ketika band ini muncul dalam hidup saya, saya merasa mendapat durian jatuh, 3 orang sama gantengnya disatu grup * what a treat. *

Check this: I’ll be there for you, Miss you like crazy.

8. 98 degrees (1995) AS

98 degrees

Nick Lachey, Drew Lachey, Justin Jeffre, dan Jeff Timmons.  “You’re my sunshine after the rain… ” is some of lyrics from their song. Bagaimana tidak meleleh coba dengernya. I love all their song. Meskipun gaungnya tidak terlalu terdengar di dunia * kecuali untuk Nick Lachey yang pernah menikah dengan Jessica Simpson, * but they will remain in my playlist ’till now.

Check this: Because of you, Invincible man.

9. Westlife (1998) Irlandia

westlife

Shane Filan, Kian Egan, Nicky byrne, Mark Feehily. Pertama kali mendengar lagu swear it again langsung suka. Awalnya bukan karena mereka boyband * mengingat era boyband sudah mulai memudar saat itu. kecuali untuk NSYNC dan BSB yang memang merajai dunia, * tapi memang karena lagunya yang mellow dan mudah dicerna. Selain NYSNC dan BSB, mungkin westlife lah boyband yang hampir semua lagunya saya punya dan suka hingga saat ini. Not just 1 or 2 song, I mean, lots of songs.

Jujur, my bias here is Mark. Akan tetapi, hati saya hancur berkeping-keeping ketika ia mengumumkan bahwa dirinya adalah gay T_T. Sejak saat itu, saya tak sanggup melihat musik video ataupun poster mereka * maklum, hati remaja macam saya saat itu masih teramat rapuh. *

Check this: Swear it again, Fool again, uptown girl.

10. Plus One (2000) AS

plus one dulu plus one skrg 1

Nate Cole, Nathan Walters, Jason Perry, Gabe Combs, dan Jeremy Mhire. Saya tidak terlalu tahu mengenai boyband ini. But one thing for sure, saya suka banget sama lagu mereka Last flight out.

Check this: Last flight out

11. Boyz II Men (1988)

boyz II men

Nathan Morris, Shawn Stockman, dan Wanya Morris. Wohoo, ini adalah boyband veteran. Tidak ada yang tidak kenal Boyz II Men. Grup hitam manis bersuara emas. All their song are amazing. Bahkan sampai sekarang, banyak lagu-lagu mereka yang masuk ke dalam everlasting love song dan masih sering diputar di radio maupun di TV.

Check this: I’ll make love to you, A song for mama, water runs dry.

12. Color Me Badd (1987) AS

color me badd

Bryan Abrams, Mark Calderon, Sam Watters, dan Kevin Thornton.Ini juga salah satu boyband veteran. Lagunya yang close to heaven sangat terkenal di Indonesia, sampai-sampai dibuat versi plesetannya sama P-project dengan judul Kop dan haden.

Check this: Close to heaven, Remember when.

13. Take That (1990) Inggris

take that

Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Jason Orange, Mark Owen, dan Robbie Williams. Okay, who don’t know Robbie Williams who make a hit with ‘Millenium’ and “Something stupid” with pretty Nicole Kidman. Ini dia boyband yang melahirkan yayang Robbie ke dunia entertainment.

Ini adalah boyband yang teramat sukanya sampai saya relakan menabung uang jajan untuk membeli kasetnya * yup, kaset ya, tau kan kaset kaya apa, bukan CD loh. * Jatuh cinta sama suaranya Gary Barlow dan tentu saja sama yayang Robbie. Love all their songs, especially in their first album.

Check this:  Pray, Never forgetBack for good

14. Code Red (1996) Inggris

Code Red

Phillip Andrew Rodell, Neil James Watts, Lee John Missen, dan Roger Ratajczak. Not really remember about them, just that I still have their songs in my PC and still listening to it till now.

Lagu: Can we talk

15. Blue (2000) Inggris

blue

Antony Costa, Duncan James, Lee Ryan, dan Simon Webbe. Here come another era of boyband. Pertama kali dengar lagu Blue yang “all rise” saya langsung ter-wow. Maklum, suaranya bagus, pembagian suara di antara mereka bagus banget. Lagu mereka yang mellow, R & B, sedikit Hip Hop, pokoknya musik jaman sekarang banget, berhasil menarik hati penggemarya di Indonesia kala itu. Apalagi lagunya yang bareng Elton John ” sorry seems to be the hardest words, ” keren banget. Sedih sih, tapi keren banget.

Check this: All Rise, One love

16. 911 (1995) Inggris

Check this: The day we find love

17. O-Town (2000)

19. Caught In The Act (1992) Belanda

caught in the act dullu caught in the act skrg

Lee Baxter, Benjamin Boyce, Eloy de Jong , dan Bastiaan Ragas. Not quite remember also about them, except for the fact that Eloy de Jong had relationship before with Stephen Gately (RIP) from Boyzone. The song called “babe” meskipun lagu lama yang dirilis ulang, cukup menarik perhatian.

Check this: Baby comeback, Babe

20. East 17 (1991) Inggris

music-east-17east 17 skrgJohn Hendy, Terry Coldwell, Robbie Craig, Brian Harvey, dan Tony Mortimer. Boyband ini salah satu favorit saya juga.

I think I just really love the beat.

Check this: All around the worldEach time

21. Blackstreet (1991) AS

blackstreet dulu blackstreet skrg

Not really a fan of them, but I do love all their song. “No digitty” is one of my all time favorite. Bahkan ketika lagu tersebut dicover oleh penyanyi lain pun, saya tetap suka. Satu lagi yang ngehits banget adalah “In a rush.” Lagu ini cocok banget buat kamu yang lagi jatuh cinta dan ingin mengekspresikan cinta kamu ke orang yang kamu suka * tsaaaaah terbang melayang *

It came over me in a rush when I realize that I love you so much,  that sometimes I cry but I can’t tell you why, why I feel what I feel inside…”

Check this: No diggityIn a rush

22. Get Ready (1995) Belgia

get ready get ready now

Sean Conlon, Ritchie Neville, Scott Robinson, Abz Love, Jason “J” Brown. Suka banget sama boyband ini. Personilnya cakep, suaranya okelah, dan lagunya, ah lagunya enak didengarkan berulang-ulang.

25. C21 (1998) Denmark

C21 C21 skrg

Søren Bregendal, Esben Duus, dan David Pepke. Ini kasusnya sama seperti pertama kali saya kenal Get Ready. Got hook with this boyband just because they are not coming from US or UK. Sementara selama ini kebanyakan boyband berasal dari kedua Negara tersebut. Makanya ketika boyband ini muncul, kesan pertama yang muncul adalah penasaran, ” wow, dari Denmark.

Undisclosed Desire by MUSE

I know you’ve suffered
But I don’t want you to hide
It’s cold and loveless
I won’t let you be denied

Those sentences kept replaying on my mind. Somehow, the song soothe me. Rapidly invaded my heart and soul * lebay * I wonder why. Even though I am MUSE fans * been brave to called myself a fan * I don’t remember been stuck in this song before. Not until I youtubeing just to find a glimpse of fanmade video about Minshin * Minho and Shinhye *
I  am the type who listen to the song based on mood and feeling. When I got into a song, I could replaying over and over again. This is no different case.
I’ve known MUSE since forever. The unintended, the resistance, starlight, hysteria, feeling good, super massive black hole are some of my favorites. My brother love them a lot. Back then, kept practicing playing guitar for almost all their song. And I, off course will be the singer * well, I guess he don’t have a choice of who will be sing it * Anyway, just wanna share this song.

Been affected by the lyric

I know you’ve suffered
But I don’t want you to hide
It’s cold and loveless
I won’t let you be denied

Soothing, I’ll make you feel pure
Trust me, you can be sure

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart
I want to recognize your beauty’s not just a mask
I want to exorcise the demons from your past
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

You trick your lovers
That you’re wicked and divine
You may be a sinner
But your innocence is mine

Please me, show me how it’s done
Tease me, you are the one

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart
I want to recognize your beauty’s not just a mask
I want to exorcise the demons from your past
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

Please me, show me how it’s done
Trust me, you are the one

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart
I want to recognize your beauty’s not just a mask
I want to exorcise the demons from your past
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

Lee Min Ho’s New Mini Album: Song For You

Who in the world doesn’t know this one particular guy. The man himself, Lee Min Ho, Male God of Asia * trust me, I’m not the one give him this title. It just show how famous he is in Asia. *

905396_440644686066168_2073742231_o_zps50b6bb2e.jpg~originallmh_heirs0tumblr_nd2yujqXpV1r3n4xoo1_500

Me, myself not really into him. Like him but not as much as hardcore fans. When the whole world around me get crazy over him, I just don’t. Don’t know exactly why. I do watched some of his drama, such as Boys over Flower, Personal Taste, and City Hunter but not making me dare to call myself his fans. Some of my friends think I’m weird those days, for not fanning him.

But that was before “The Heirs” I am Park Shin Hye fan in terms of I love her acting despite the fact that I am noona to her. She is just too cute, have an angelic face, and great in doing aegyo or crying scene. So, when I watch The Heirs, which Min Ho was in there, to be his male lead exactly, I was being drown by his acting through all episodes. I was being one of his fan nowadays. And now, whenever I talk about him in front of my friends, they just like “what? just just realize now, after all those years we’ve been talking about him IN FRONT of you and YOU not interested. Pleaseeee” with all their gaze dagger at me.

So, here I am, writing about him and his new Mini Album. He might not be the best singer out there, but he definitely one of the best entertainer. And his deep and hoarse voice really help him in singing. His singing skill maybe average * compared to other singer or actor be singer * but he definitely nailed it, in terms of bringing the soul and emotion into his song.

After listening to his song, such as Painful Love. I guess, his voice finally captured my heart * tsaah, melted * So when his new mini album finally released, I was so excited to hear what kind of song and how he will represent the song. Well, I’m surprised, it turns out very good. he really nailed the pop rock type of song. I love the beat, the music, the melody, the lyric, and off course the voice. My most favorite will be Burning Up * keep replaying it in my phone *

Song for You

The Lyric

In my eyes that are blacker than the night sky
My path was getting farther away
My heart was filled up all the way with the world, oh my dream

Your eyes shined closer and clearer when I was tired
You are my sunshine, like a strange ray of light
Shine on my heart that is hidden

As I follow the stars, follow the path
Because you’re there, because you came to me
I am living one more day

You shine on me, you fill me up
Only you are my everything in this world

I will sing
A song for you

Words are not enough
I just look into your eyes, in my love

For you

 

Paradise In Love

The Lyric

Darling, close your eyes, let’s leave together for a bit
Darling, can you feel this sweet love song?

Darling, lean on me, won’t you come with me?
Darling, think about it, oh paradise in love

Water flowing on soft sand, you and I at that place
Can you hear the wind spells for love?
Your eyes and smile are as clear as the sky

Darling, open your eyes and look at me
Oh paradise in love

Water flowing on soft sand, you and I at that place
Can you hear the wind spells for love?
Your eyes are as clear as the sky
Our kiss is as deep as the ocean

Darling, I love you, my love, you’re as beautiful as the sunset
Let’s make love, oh paradise in love

 

Stalker

The Lyric

Good Night
Words that comforted me
At that last moment, your smile felt deeper to me

Let’s leave, let’s leave farther away
Waiting for you is good for me

You want me now, it’s time now
I love you, I need you, tonight
Before the night is over, before it’s too late
Tell me you love me again
Hold tight to my hand and tell me you always waited for me

I’m the only one
I’m the only one for you

Don’t tell me to give up on you
It’s meaningless to me
It’s alright, you’re prettier like that

The reason you left me
Yes, so I can forget it
I can be better, better than that other person

You want me now, it’s time now
I love you, I need you, tonight
Before the night is over, before it’s too late
Tell me you love me again
Hold tight to my hand and tell me you always waited for me

I love You, I need you

 

Travel

The Lyric

No words can express how I feel
We’re looking at the same place
We’ve thought the same things from the start
Everything is in your eyes

Hold my hand tight right now
The sky looks good
With you, I’ll Travel Travel Travel (Travel Travel Travel)

You and me, just like this, all right, the dazzling sunlight
This happy moment, toward your heart, I’ll travel travel travel
You and I, forever, all right, the shining moonlight
This endless moment, toward your heart, I’ll travel travel travel

I’m confident Uh-ho Yeah

No one can take your place
We both have similar feelings
We thought similar things from the start
I see everything in you

Hold my hand tight right now
The sky looks good
With you, I’ll Travel Travel Travel

You and me, just like this, all right, the dazzling sunlight
This happy moment, toward your heart, I’ll travel travel travel
You and I, forever, all right, the shining moonlight
This endless moment, toward your heart, I’ll travel travel travel

Throw away your worries and get up to love
It’s a new beginning

Our love is all right, the sunlight shines on you
This happy moment, toward your heart, I’ll travel travel travel
You and I, forever, all right, the shining moonlight
This endless moment, toward your heart, I’ll travel travel travel

I’m confident Uh-ho

Travel Travel Travel

 

Burning Up

The Lyric

Forget about the lover who left you
Tears don’t suit you
Erase the bad memories
Only look at me, hold me and feel me

When he says it’s for you, it’s all a lie
Don’t listen to anything but what I tell you
When he says he loves you, that you’re the only one, it’s a lie

On at this moment
Come into my heart
I wanna feel your love
There’s no need for tears for you and me
Come on get closer
Make tonight hot

Listen, you’re the only one for me, you’re always my love
So I can burn up your painful scars from your break up
I’m burning up now

Throw away your past lover
Lingering feelings don’t suit you
Wash away his traces
Now fill up your heart with me

When he says it’s for you, it’s all a lie
Don’t listen to anything but what I tell you
When he says he loves you, that you’re the only one, it’s a lie

On at this moment
Come into my heart
I wanna feel your love
There’s no need for tears for you and me
Come on get closer
Make tonight hot

Listen, you’re the only one for me, you’re always my love
So I can burn up your painful scars from your break up
I’m burning up now

Baby girl, close your eyes
And when you open them again
You and I, just us two, forever

On at this moment
Come into my heart
I wanna feel your love
There’s no need for tears for you and me
Come on get closer
Make tonight hot

Listen, you’re the only one for me, you’re always my love
So I can burn up your painful scars from your break up
I’m burning up now

I’m burning up now

Lyrics from: https://tuneuplyrics.wordpress.com

 

Frozen Fever, Let It Go

Here I am, ended up writing about this one song that kept repeating playing in my head. Not because I really really like the song or repeatedly listened to this song through my earphone. But only because almost all my student are very attached to the film, FROZEN which cause them to repeatedly told me the story about Elsa and Anna also sang the famous original soundtrack, “Let It Go.”

Let It Go by Idina Menzel * I prefer her version than Demi Lovato version, sorry, no hurt feeling here *

During their play, they pretended as Ana or Elsa. During our conversation, they talked about Anna and Elsa. When painting, they painted Anna and Elsa. They drew Anna and Elsa. They made Olaf the snowman with the play dough and ended up told story about Anna and Elsa and the Snowman, well basically about Frozen. They made 3D art, such as castle or dress for Anna and Elsa.

And last but not least, they sang part of the “Let It Go” song, started by hummed the song, sang part of it while playing, sang the song on their-hand-made-stage, and sang almost the whole part of the song out loud with, off course, the movement Elsa shown while singing the song. And could you believe me,  it happened almost everyday since they watch Frozen in movie theater. So, I might said, they are really into Frozen fever.

Here is a video that really reminds me of my student while they sang this song. Yup, almost same just like this. So imagine you heard them singing like this each and everyday. As cutie as pie… cutest ever…

So, as their teacher, how can I don’t know about the song? How can’t I sang the song with them? How can I support and scaffold them if I don’t know about the song or the movie itself? From the moment one of them nicely said to me, “Miss, that is frozen song. Why you don’t know miss. I know the song.” Right at that moment, felt like a big stone bump into my head * too much reading manga and watching anime I guess, a little bit overreact then * I felt very challenged. I promised myself to dig all about Frozen. So, then I engaged with my computer and diligently ask uncle google and youtube 8 thanks God they are available in this era *

The very next day, I showed them that I finally catch them up with this Frozen things. I asked them about the story, how they recall the story. How they characterized the cast. How they recognize their character, starts from the size, gender, details on their dress, etc. Now, they even more eagerly to talk about it since they felt that their teacher finally understand what they are talking about. Furthermore, we sang along together * the “Let it Go” song * which trigger them to sang it even out loud.

Connie Talbot – Let It Go * really love this Cover version, actually, I always love Connie Talbot *

Here is the lyrics, Let us sang together…

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight
Not a footprint to be seen
A kingdom of isolation,
And it looks like I’m the Queen.

The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside
Couldn’t keep it in, heaven knows I tried

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be
Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know
Well, now they know

Let it go, let it go
Can’t hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn away and slam the door

I don’t care
What they’re going to say
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway

It’s funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can’t get to me at all

It’s time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me
I’m free

Let it go, let it go
I am one with the wind and sky
Let it go, let it go
You’ll never see me cry

Here I stand
And here I’ll stay
Let the storm rage on

My power flurries through the air into the ground
My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around
And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast
I’m never going back,
The past is in the past

Let it go, let it go
When I’ll rise like the break of dawn
Let it go, let it go
That perfect girl is gone

Here I stand
In the light of day
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway

Sticky Sticky Bubble Gum

Raise your hands if you don’t know about bubble gum? anyone? anywhere? I guess nobody will raise their hands.

Bubble gum is one type of chewing gum. The very first bubble gum was invented by Frank Henry Fleer in 1906. He called it Blibber-Blubber gum. However, the bubble blowing chew was never sold. Fleer’s recipe was later perfected by Walter Diemer, who called his product Double Bubble. The bubble gum is less sticky than regular chewing gum and stretched more easily. That is why this kind of gum can be blown into bubble. I guess that is why we called it bubble gum.

Enough about a history of bubble gum. What I am trying to say is, bubble gum is very interesting and fun. Before, a friend of mine, told me about bubble gum song, but then I let it pass and forget about it. So, when I finally remember her saying, I quickly found this video on youtube about bubble gum song, and I was very excited.

I thought, how fun it will be if I use the song for my activity with my awesome student. Off course, I modified the activity so it will be appropriate for the children. They must be very excited about it. Even I am very excited. So, one day, I finally did it during Large Group Time. It was very fun. All children quite engage to the activity. They eager to learned this new song and even pretended to have bubble gum stick on their hands.

The song lyrics is like this:

Sticky sticky sticky bubble gum

bubble gum bubble gum

Sticky sticky sticky bubble gum

bubble gum bubble gum

Stick your hands to your …. * anywhere we like *

For me, at fist I give a an example where to stick it. Then we pretend as if it was really hard to unstick. We tried to pull it, but it still can’t unstick. aaaaarrrggh…. We all really pretended so it looks very real. After some time, then we said together out loud, “unstick” then we raise our hands up. Then we did it again for several time. This time, I let children chose where they want to stick it.

What surprised me is some children had ideas that I never expected before. For example, stick our back to other children. They even use some vocabulary that I never heard them saying before * since english is not their mother language, so it kinds of surprised me * Then what amazed me was, there was this girl, one of my student, when she saw some children still acted that they couldn’t unstick their hands, she said,”ohh, you have to say the magic word first… unnnnnstiiick!The magic word, I never said that before, so she really amazed me. How proud I am to be her teacher.

In the end, the activity succeed. And now, everytime I need to get their attention, I just sang the song, and they all will gather around without me asking. No need to yell at them, no need to hurried them, no need to threatened them, or even asking them. After all, children nature is that they will engage in things which interest them. And this sticky bubble gum definitely interest them.

Calm Down, Deep Breaths

Details in Fabrics by Jason Mraz feat. James Morisson.

It is a shame that I just got hold to this song recently, eventhough I am a fan of Jason Mraz and James Morisson. I would not even know this song if it’s not from the Heirs ost * Kdrama played by Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye * episode 17. Since that time I heard it, it catch my heart.

At first I though how encouraging this song is, for me. But then I youtube-ing to find the song and here I am become more encouraging than ever.

The song perfectly suits Tan (Lee Min Ho character in The Heirs) situation at that time * and maybe Won, Tan’s brother, too * and the way that it played as background music and stops when Won got a phone call from Tan who is in the Police station * as he breaking himself down after losing Eun Sang * is really matched well. As if the song told them both to get  a hold of themselves together, to hang on and face the reality in a good way.

As if the song told Won to keep strong until he reach his goal * to get the highest place in the world  and told Tan to comeback to his old self rather than being out of control cause of anger, loneliness, depression, and breaking heart of losing his loved one * Eun Sang played by Park Shin Hye   The song told Tan that the reasoning behind all of it is not his fault, so there is no reason to get all build up about something that was uncontrollable, beyond his control.

So, take things as they come and make best of what is dealt to you. Just like Tan always said * and I believe it became the message of this drama * “Go Forward, whatever happened.” And it is so true, because the least thing we can do after something bad happened is keep moving forward and live on.

So, in my point of view, after listen to this song for all this time is for us to see things as a whole not just as details. No need to sweat the small stuff for it can easily turn into huge stuff. That everything is definitely happened for a reason, even though sometimes we don’t know the reason for, yet. So all we have to do is, to think calm, get a hold of our self, and moving forward. Because in the end, everything will be alright. Put your believe in it. As I do.

So, here is the song, the one that i keep rambling about in above

Hey, what’s up? Uhh, I just lost it. At the end of the day, I f***ing lost it. I just blew up my whole entire f***ing apartment building. I told everyone to go f**k themselves. I just had a hard time today and uh, I don’t know.

Calm down
Deep breaths
And get yourself dressed instead
Of running around
And pulling all your threads and
Breaking yourself up
 
If it’s a broken part, replace it
If it’s a broken arm then brace it
If it’s a broken heart then face it
 
And hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way
Hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way
And everything will be fine
 
Hang on
Help is on the way
And stay strong
I’m doing everything
 
Hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way
 
Hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way
 
And everything
Everything will be fine
Everything
 
Are the details in the fabric
Are the things that make you panic
Are your thoughts results of static cling?
 
Are the things that make you blow
Hell, no reason, go on and scream
If you’re shocked it’s just the fault
Of faulty manufacturing
 
Everything will be fine
Everything in no time at all
Everything
 
(Hold your own, know your name)
Are the details in the fabric
Are the things that make you panic
Are your thoughts results of static cling?
(Go your own way)
 
Are the details in the fabric
(Hold your own, know your name)
Are the things that make you panic
(Go your own way)
Is it Mother Nature’s sewing machine?
 
Are the things that make you blow
(Hold your own, know your name)
Hell no reason go on and scream
If you’re shocked it’s just the fault
(Go your own way)
Of faulty manufacturing
 
Everything will be fine
Everything in no time at all
Hearts will hold

new message:

Yo what’s up man? I, uh, i don’t know man. I just wanted to say that, uh, you know, everything’s made up. I mean everything’s, everything will always be f***ed. Can’t stop being f**k, but i guess we just deal with it how it comes, deal with the humps, take the jumps. I feel like, you’re an island of reality in an ocean of diarrhea and I love you buddy. OK. bye.

Have you see how mirror resemble love?

Can not explain how am I addicted to this song. Keep replaying the song whenever earphone plug in my ear. The feeling I got from hearing the music and the lyrics is unexplainable. Justin really made his comeback. I love him since NSYNC, but now he grew up even better than I expected. And I wonder, if Jessica Biel had things to do with his change? I guess she does. For she the “one and only” for him. Which is good, cos I definitely like the change.

Just read the lyrics… It definitely refer to Jessica * 100% my own opinion*

Now you’re the inspiration for this precious song
And I just wanna see your face light up since you put me on
So now I say goodbye to the old me, it’s already gone
And I can’t wait wait wait wait wait to get you home
Just to let you know, you are
You are you are the love of my life (8x)
 

This song just rocks. The music is so rich. I can feel blues, jazz, pop, even hip hop, not to mention there is also a beat box. And it became more epic when we see it live, with the entertaining performance from the back up singer and the band. Impressive. How I love the live than the recorded audio.

Just listen and watch this.

And when we talk about the lyrics. Is there any way to melt women’s heart than to say “you are my reflection, and all I see is you… Just to let you know, you are..love of my life..” * melted * How lucky Jessica to be “that” woman.

Somehow, I agree that love is like a mirror. When you look at through the mirror, you see your reflection staring back at you. It is like the one you love is another half of yourself, just like your reflection in the mirror.

Both of them (yourself and the reflection) is exactly the same. I mean, when he hurt, then she might feel hurt too. When he delight, she might feel it too.

You can not get any bigger or any smaller than your reflection and vice versa. I believe that in love relationship, man and woman should be equal. Man is not supposed to be “on top” of the woman so he can put some pressed on her, neither do woman. But he can not also under woman’s power. Or he feel the love less than her.  Man supposed to be on the side of the woman. To hold her, care he, love her, comfort her etc and viceversa.

And no matter where the mirror is, when you look through it, the reflection is always right there, whether it in front of you, behind you, or beside you. Just like our hope in life, that the one we love, will always be with us, in the past, present, and future. During hard day and happy day, he or she will never leave us. Just like our reflection does.

See how mirror resemble love? Imagine what happened when the mirror broken into pieces? When the love between man and woman is not there anymore? There will not be any reflection left. At least, not in whole pieces. Even if it is, it only small or tiny pieces that just left as memories.

Mirrors by Justin Timberlake (with the Band, Tennessee Kid)

Aren’t you something
to admire,
’cause your shine is something like a mirror
But I can’t help but notice,
you reflect in this heart of mine
If you ever
feel alone and
the glare makes me hard to find
Just know that I’m always
parallel on the other side
 
‘Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of soul
I can tell you there’s no place we couldn’t go
Just put your hand on the glass,
I’m here trying to pull you through
You just gotta be strong
 
‘Cause I don’t wanna lose you now
I’m looking right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space that now you’re home
Show me how to fight for now
And I’ll tell you, baby, it was easy
Coming back here to you once I figured it out
You were right here all along
It’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn’t get any bigger
With anyone else beside of me
And now it’s clear as this promise
That we’re making two reflections into one
‘Cause it’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me,
(staring back at me)
 
Aren’t you something,
an original,
’cause it doesn’t seem merely assembled
But I can’t help but stare ’cause
I see truth somewhere in your eyes
Ooh I can’t ever
change without you,
you reflect me, I love that about you
And if I could, I
would look at us all the time
 
‘Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of soul
I can tell you there’s no place we couldn’t go
Just put your hand on the glass,
I’m here trying to pull you through
You just gotta be strong
 
‘Cause I don’t wanna lose you now
I’m looking right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space that now you hold
Show me how to fight for now
And I’ll tell you, baby, it was easy
Coming back here to you once I figured it out
You were right here all along
It’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn’t get any bigger
With anyone else beside of me
And now it’s clear as this promise
That we’re making two reflections into one
‘Cause it’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me,
staring back at me
 
Yesterday is history
Tomorrow’s a mystery
I can see you looking back at me
Keep your eyes on me
Baby, keep your eyes on me
 
‘Cause I don’t wanna lose you now
I’m looking right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space that now you’re home
Show me how to fight for now (show me baby)
And I’ll tell you, baby, it was easy
Coming back here to you once I figured it out
You were right here all along
It’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn’t get any bigger
With anyone else beside of me
And now it’s clear as this promise
That we’re making two reflections into one
‘Cause it’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me
 
You are you are the love of my life (10x)
 
Now you’re the inspiration for this precious song
And I just wanna see your face light up since you put me on
So now I say goodbye to the old me, it’s already gone
And I can’t wait wait wait wait wait to get you home
Just to let you know, you are
 
You are you are the love of my life (8x)
 
Girl you’re my reflection, all I see is you
My reflection, in everything I do
You’re my reflection and all I see is you
My reflection, in everything I do
You are you are the love of my life (16x)

Be The Light by One Ok Rock

So here is the song that really encourages me to be the “light” in someone darkness. To make our life more meaningful by helping others in pain and others who lost their hope. One Ok Rock is a band from Japan, one of many that I adore, not for their physic but for their woks. Their song and their music, especially when they are doing it acoustic or live * try to watch here *

We often heard the word ‘light’ use in many occasion. In this case, light, means hope. There will always hope in our life. Even after the hardest things happened in our life. Just like the song lyrics “Yesterday’s night turns to light,
Tomorrow’s night returns to light.” And that is a promise. Whatever happened, night will turn into day where there is light.

So, lets start being others light. Look out your surround and see who still in the darkness, and be the one who light the darkness.

Be The Light

Just the thought of another day
How did we end up this way
What did we do wrong?
God

Even though the days go on
So far, so far away from
It seems so close

Always weighing on my shoulder
A time like no other
It all changed on that day
Sadness and so much pain

You can touch the sorrow here
I don’t know what to blame
I just watch and watch again
O…

Even though the days go on
So far, so far away from
It seems so close

Even though the days go on
So far, so far away from
It seems so close

What did it leave behind?
What did it take from us and wash away?
It may be long
But with our hearts start a new
And keep it up and not give up
With our heads held high

You have seen hell and made it back again
How to forget? We can’t forget
The lives that were lost along the way
And then you realize that wherever you go
There you are
Time won’t stop
So we keep moving on

Yesterday’s night turns to light
Tomorrow’s night returns to light
O… Be the light

Always weighing on my shoulder
A time like no other
It all changed on that day
Sadness and so much pain

Anyone can close their eyes
Pretend that nothing is wrong
Open your eyes
And look for light
O…

What did it leave behind?
What did it take from us and wash away?
It may be long
But with our hearts start a new
And keep it up and not give up
With our heads held high

Yeah, yeah…

You have seen hell and made it back again
How to forget? We can’t forget
The lives that were lost along the way
And then you realize that wherever you go
There you are
Time won’t stop
So we keep moving on

Yesterday’s night turns to light
Tomorrow’s night returns to light
O… Be the light

Some days just pass by and
Some days are unforgettable
We can’t choose the reason why
But we can choose what to do from the day after
So with that hope, with that determination
Let’s make tomorrow a brighter and better day

Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful

This is The song called “Young and Beautiful” by Lana del Rey. It is a soundtrack of one of we so called great movies.

I know this song is already air for some time, but I just can’t forget this song at all. The music somehow reminds me of Leonardo Dicaprio in a saddest way. I mean, why can’t he have a happy ending with her loved one. And the lyric, “will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful?” really breaks my hearts, because damn sure he will still love you till death.

I feel like I am raping my earphone, cos I keeps playing this song repeatedly. How I fall in love with this one piece of art. The music, the song, the lyrics, and off course the voice. Perfect.

So here is the lyrics, let’s sing together and reminiscence the great gatsby. While wishing and praying that there’ll be someone out there who will still love us even when we are no longer young and beautiful and when we have nothing but our aching soul.

Young and Beautiful

I’ve seen the world
Done it all, had my cake now
Diamonds, brilliant, and Bel-Air now
Hot summer nights mid July
When you and I were forever wild
The crazy days, the city lights
The way you’d play with me like a child

Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful
Will you still love me when I got nothing but my aching soul
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful

I’ve seen the world, lit it up as my stage now
Channeling angels in, the new age now
Hot summer days, rock and roll
The way you’d play for me at your show
And all the ways I got to know
Your pretty face and electric soul

Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful
Will you still love me when I got nothing but my aching soul
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful

Dear lord when I get to heaven
Please let me bring my man
When he comes tell me that you’ll let me
Father tell me if you can

Oh that grace, oh that body
Oh that face makes me wanna party
He’s my sun, he makes shine like diamonds

Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful
Will you still love me when I got nothing but my aching soul
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful
Will you still love me when I’m not young and beautiful

You’re The Only by Masatoshi Ono (Sho)

By Masatoshi Ono, himself

By Sho with Galneryus

So, this week song will be Japanese song, represent by a song which is oldies but an everlasting one. The title is “You’re The Only…” This is a single from Masatoshi Ono * now, he is known as Sho, vocalist of a Japanese Band called Galneryus * This song also used as an OST for Dorama (Japanese drama) titled Anything for you (Kimi no Tame ni Dekiru Koto). A dorama that is very worth to watch * make me cry a river back then everytime I watch it, even when I only hear the song *

The story line is very good, the ost is very touching, and the ending is very warm also heartbreaking. It kinda reminds me of “Ghost” movie. Eventhough I don’t really understand Japanese language (I only understand some words or sentences that usually been used in manga or anime), but I love this song so much. Very romantic and nostalgic. Here you go, the lyric

Mayonaka kimi to futari

Sunahama nami no shirabe

Miageta sora ni wa hora

Hoshi no SHANDERIA (Chandelier) sa

I Love You Tonight

Toki ga tomareba ii ne

Nagareboshi kirameku

Omoi o tsutaetai sugu ni

Itsumademo futari kono mama

Tsuyoku dakishimete Fly Away

Kagayaiteru kimi no hitomi

Boku no subete utsushite yo

My Song For You, Just Only You

Kimi dake o aishiteiru no sa

Kisetsu hazure no umi wa

Omoide dake nokoshite

Yorisou futari wa hora

Yureru DAIYAMONDO (Diamond)

I Love You Tonight

Kimi dake ireba ii yo

Ima kokoro kirameku

Negai o kanaetai sugu ni

Itsumademo kimi wa boku no

Angel Onaji yume oikakeyou

Kagayaiteru boku no hitomi

Kimi no subete utsusu kara

My Song For You, Just Only You

Kimi dake o mitsumeteiru no sa

Itsumademo futari kono mama

Tsuyoku dakishimete Fly Away

My Song For You, Just Only You

Kimi dake o aishiteiru no sa

English Translation Lyrics

On the sand dunes with you at midnight…

The melody of the waves…

When we look at the sky, see, There’s a chandelier of stars.

I love you tonight I wish time would stop …

A shooting star sparkles;

I want to tell you how I feel right now.

We’ll be this way forever;

I want to hold you strongly and fly away.

Your sparkling eyes Only reflect me

My song for you, just only you…

I’ll love only you.

The sea, unusual for this season, Leaves only memories…

The two of us, snuggling up close, see, Are like swaying diamonds.

I love you tonight I only want to be with you…

My heart is shining;

I want to make my wish come true right now.

You’ll be my angel forever;

We’ll chase after the same dream.

My shining eyes See every bit of you

My song for you, just only you…

I’ll only look at you.

We’ll be this way forever;

I want to hold you strongly and fly away.

Your sparkling eyes Only reflect me

My song for you, just only you…

I’ll love only you.

Be Brave by Agnez Mo

be braveeeee……!!!!!” * me, singing, actually more like screaming, failed imitating Agnez Mo *  This is not even the end of the week, but I’m pretty sure this amazing song from Agnez Mo (or known here in Indonesia as Agnes Monica) will be my soundtrack of the week. Ok, more than a week, I think everytime I felt that I need to be brave for some things in life. The motivational and inspiring lyric add with Agnez Voice is PERFECT.

I’m not her fangirl, but I do respect and adore her music. She put 1000% effort into her music. She keeps learning and learning to become better (such as, took a vocal lesson during her childhood, dance practice and so on). And trust me, she is getting much better.

Fist time I recognized her as a great singe was years agooo, when she sang ‘I turn to you” * originally sung by Christina Aguilera * live in some TV Show. And I was like, OMG, She is not bad * well, at that time, I am fangirling Christina Aguilera. And I haven’t heard someone cover her song as good as Agnes did. Consider her very young age at the time * Then, I start keeping my eyes on her. And I haven’t been dissapointed, yet.

Back to the song, be brave. It gave me fuel to be brave. Just read the lyrics below. See how it could shine your life and others around you.

BE BRAVE

Stand
For the silence and the broken ones
For the families who have lost someone
You have a voice
 
Stand
Out from the shadows unveil who you are
Light the candle and don’t fear the dark
No matter how small
When you’ve got the call
 
Be brave
Shine all your light
Where is your fight
 
Be brave
Turn on your light
You got to fight
Ule iye iye ee
Ule iye iye ee
Be brave
Be brave
Yeah….
 
Tonight
We celebrate our love for you
Cause you’ve given us so much of you
For every single sacrifice
You have paid the price
 
And where…
wherever you may go
I know that you can make it so
Don’t give up the fight
Don’t turn out the light
 
Be brave
Shine all your light
Where is your fight
 
Be brave
Turn on your light
You got to fight
Ule iye iye ee
Ule iye iye ee
Be brave
Be brave
You know you”ll be brave
 
We are one
We are love
Let our strength unite us
And not divide us
Let’s stand as one
 
 
Be brave
Shine all your light
Where is your fight
 
Be brave
Turn on your light
You got to fight
Ule iye iye ee
Ule iye iye ee
Be brave
Be brave

This is my song of the week. Me and family is having a hard time to collect fund for our new house. Sometimes, we felt that it is impossible to get such amount of money in a month. But we keep our faith in God, that there wil be a way if we show some effort, that everything will be alright.

The song that encourage me to be positive. The song that comforts me that everything will be alright… alright… and I believe it will be.

So keep rewind this song in my head while actually singing it.

All stress aside, it’s my time to shine
I did my 9 to 5, I’m glad that I’m alive
Step into the club, I roll through like I’m the man
Because I am, with the master plan, haters looking at me like damn

Wanna kick dirt up on my name, crush my life and all it’s dreams
Yet I feel so fresh, so clean when I step into the scene
Through the smiles and frowns, ups and downs, high and lows going all day and all night
Perfect timing, man it’s so right, my moment is here, I’ll be alright

Feels like there’s something trying to tell me, everything is gonna’ be alright, alright, alright
But I can’t help but look over my shoulders, just to know it’s gonna’ be alright, alright, alright
I always feel like, somebody’s watching me
(And I have no privacy)
I always feel like, somebody’s watching me
(Tell me is it just a dream)

The stars are out I’m a take my place
Because I have way more then what it takes
And all the people behind wanna’ see me break
But from all my mistakes, I’m feeling great
Never will I call it quits, start scratching my head and be known for the one who flakes
Do the do the 2 step I got moves to make
I’m alright, alright, I’m straight
But I’m a have to keep it real cause’ some things will never change
The same thought that be playing in my brain

Feels like there’s something trying to tell me, everything is gonna’ be alright, alright, alright
But I can’t help but look over my shoulders, just to know it’s gonna’ be alright, alright, alright
I always feel like, somebody’s watching me
(And I have no privacy)
I always feel like, somebody’s watching me
(Tell me is it just a dream)

Put your hands up
A little higher, higher
Put your hands up
Put em up, put em up, way up in the sky

Feels like there’s something trying to tell me, everything is gonna’ be alright, alright, alright
But I can’t help but look over my shoulders, just to know it’s gonna’ be alright, alright, alright
I always feel like, somebody’s watching me
(And I have no privacy)
I always feel like, somebody’s watching me
(Tell me is it just a dream)

Full Lyrics from azlyrics

“It’s A Beautiful Day”

There’s nothing wrong with me, I’m OK
It’s only because recently been kind of Grey that I feel down
I know what I’m aiming for
Don’t think so much about everything and let the day take over
It ain’t that hard to do

It’s a beautiful day outside
But you don’t know how to fly

There’s nothing wrong with you, you’re OK
It’s only because things don’t always go your way that you feel down

Hey what you waiting for ?
Don’t think so much about everything and let the day take over
It ain’t that hard to do

It’s a beautiful day outside
But you don’t know how to fly
It’s a beautiful day outside
But you don’t know how to fly

Hey, what you waiting for?
Don’t think so much about everything and let the day take over
It ain’t that hard to do

It’s a beautiful day outside
But you don’t know how to fly

It’s a beautiful day outside
But you don’t know how to fly
It’s a beautiful day
It’s a beautiful day
It’s a beautiful day
It’s a beautiful day

Who didn’t know about colors. We saw it around us. We wear it on us.

I love colors. Any kind of colors. Looking at so many colors, really made my day.

It’s the same with children. They really really love colors. Whether they know its named or not. In Fact, colors is one of things that they first learn in their early age.

Just read them books about colors. Provide paint or marker with so many colors or colored paper. Or sing a song about colors. It would definitely catch their attention. At least, that is how I know from my observation with my student.

First, we could expose them with colors, let them engage in it, then we could use it to teach them other things, such as mathematics, science, movement or else.

To get children’s attention, we could sing loudly a song about colors. Such as “pelangi-pelangi” in bahasa or “rainbow” in English. I guarantee that children will loved it.

Just sing the song while pointing the color everywhere. It could be in your body, clothes that you wear, or in your surroundings.

This is the song:

Red and yellow and pink and green

purple and orange and blue

I can sing a rainbow

sing a rainbow

sing a rainbow too

For us, adults, it migh be a very simple song. But, for preschoool children, it quite hard, especially when the children are not speak english.

But, when they finally could sing it, they will sing it over and over and over again. And not just that, they also learn new vocabulary about colors. Later on, they will recognize colors by themselves when they are ready.

Don’t worry if your children still doesn’t recognize colors, maybe because they are not ready yet. Don’t force them to recognize it. Just expose them with colors in everyday life. Started with basic colors which is red, blue, and yellow. Then, move on to other colors made by mixing these basic colors.

Later, when they are adults, just like I do. They would love colors even more.

I mean, life is full of colors. What would it be if there is only one color in this world, in your life? It would not be fun at all. Cos everything will look exactly the same.

So, enjoy all colors. Create an experience with it. Then our life will be definitely colorful.
