The Flower Gem of Singapore– A Better Florist

I had the pleasure of reviewing A Better Florist- Singapore’s most innovative florist. I like to get my facts straight, so I dove in deep into research mode.

I started by visiting their social media and website. Right off the bat, I could see why so many people refer to it as best florist in Singapore. There it was; a heaven of flowers. Picture after picture of gorgeous, fresh and vibrant blooms, just staring at me, begging me to order them.

I was delighted with what I saw. Their designs are unusual and authentic, and it really shows that their florists know what they’re doing. I enjoyed scrolling through their selection on the website. It was short and sweet. Each arrangement and bundle had a cute name, a short description and the price listed right beside it. It’s very convenient and easy to make a choice, especially if you’re looking for something special for Valentine’s Day flower delivery in Singapore.

This flower shop started out as a typical flower stand Singapore is used to seeing, and it developed into a great flower business, that really stands out. All of their flowers seem so fresh, and there’s a reason behind it. They grow their blooms on a farm on Cameron Highlands, and once they are ready, they are delivered straight to their flower shops. This makes them fresh and long lasting. If you ask me, when you pay for flowers, you want to have them around for as long as possible.

By that time, I was convinced that it was the best florist in Singapore. And then, I read about the best flower delivery in Singapore. A Better Florist took it yet another step further, and made their delivery super-fast. You can order right now, and they will deliver it on the same day, within only 90 minutes! That’s a truly outstanding service and I applaud them for their idea of being the only 24 hour florist in Singapore. That’s something Singapore never experienced before, not when it comes to flower shops.

There’s no doubt a cheap bouquet Singapore florist can craft is something that we’re used to, but A Better Florist has the ideal balance between crafting luxurious blooms and still keeping the prices affordable.

Naturally, I wanted to find out more. I wanted to see what others had to say about them, and whether they are as popular as they seem to be. I was later surprised to find out that they are also well known beyond Singapore. They are considered the best florist in Hong Kong and the best florist in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, by several reputable sources.

This information came in handy, because I love to travel. And, if I can depend on the best flower delivery in Hong Kong like I do in Singapore, why not? If you’re looking for a Dubai flower delivery and Hong Kong flower delivery, make sure to track down A Better Florist.

I would be glad to see their flower chain expand to the entire world, since they really did surprise me, and I highly recommend it to all. Not just travellers, but all the people who get the chance to experience all that A Better Florist team has to offer.

You’ll always hate how your writing used to sound

I’m having a roaring good time cleaning out a writing folder filled with incomplete, half-assed fiction, themed articles on beauty, tech and health, as well as a bunch of incoherent poems, and God knows what else I might unearth. Painful as it is, the Recycle Bin is where they shall all go.

I thought I might have written some gems, but really, most pieces are utter crap. I hate how I sounded five years ago. It was then that I used to contribute very short articles to a now-defunct e-zine for silver-haired folks, as well as a Japanese health and beauty site that has unfortunately gone the way of the dodo. Writing came to me rather easily then – it kills me that I’ve developed a lethal overthinking habit, and I can’t seem to write as quickly and smoothly now. I’m hoping to regain some writing mojo.

To celebrate the purge of my writing folder, here’s a short one I wrote to supplement a campaign for healthier food choices for the older generation. Mind you this was five years ago.

Join me as I cringe and watch this burn.


A Bitter-Sweet Life

Most of us battle sugar-addiction on a daily basis. When feeling tired, stressed out or just plain hungry, we reach for sugar-laden quickies – chocolates, icecream or a doughnut with our coffee.

Bitter foods may not be appetising, but studies have shown that bitter foods stimulate our taste receptors on the tongue, increasing bile flow and nutrient absorption. Nutritionist dietitician Nicole Dube of Halifax, N.S. encourages consumption of bitter foods and herbs as “help to stimulate digestive juices and support food digestion.” Enhanced digestion of bitter vegetables leaves you feeling full and satisfied for much longer than that tempting bar of chocolates.

Hate bitter foods? Here are some bitters that make excellent addition to soups and salads, and when sprinkled over pastas and pizzas, or stuffed in a breakfast wrap.

KALE

(photo http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-4408/Top-10-Health-Benefits-of-Eating-Kale.html)

With over 45 different flavonoids in kale being identified by researchers, its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties helps to relieve chronic inflammation and supports our body’s detoxification system.

ENDIVE

(photo http://www.renaissanceherbs.com.au/herbs-a-z/endive)

Chocked full of phytonutrients, endives support the liver by reducing cholesterol, and balancing our hormones.

PUNTARELLE

(photo http://www.123rf.com/photo_12793588_fresh-puntarelle-vegetable-on-white-background.html)

A member of the chicory family, sometimes known as asparagus chicory, the puntarelle is an Italian favorite that is low in calories and extremely high in vitamin C and B9 density.

RADICCHIO

(photo http://www.iknowvegetables.com/radicchio.html)

Fresh radicchio is one of the excellent sources of vitamin K. Increasing intake of vitamin K has an established role in treatment of patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, as it limit neurona damage in the brain.
SPINACH

(photo http://food.sulekha.com/dishimages/24940.jpg)

Lutein, the carotenoid found in spinach, prevents eye diseases such as age-related cataracts and macular degeneration.

The next time you’re craving a sugary boost, think of the healthier bitter alternatives that are in fact, sweeter in the long run.

Need further convincing to eat your bitters? Bitter greens like radicchio, endive, and kale contains phytonutrients that support the liver – the vital organ that stabilizes our hormones, purifies the blood and metabolizes fats.


I cringed, so hard.

Bed-time musings

“Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think,
I’m not going to make it
,
but you laugh inside — remembering all the times you’ve felt that way.”
― Charles Bukowski

cat in bed

Over drinks on a Friday, I realised being single must be a blessing, because really,

bedd

I mean, if some lady got to marry the Eiffel Tower, I can be legally tied to my bed so that it’s absolute cruelty to force us apart. It took weeks of sleep deprivation, and then a good sleep-in Saturday, for me to realise my greatest love is my own bed.

And if my bed were all these kinds of pretty…I’ll never ever leave it for anything or anyone.

SSENZE – Kpop World Festival 2017 – SG Finals

SSENZE is happy to be finalists of the Singapore round of Kpop World Festival!

Our finals will be held this Saturday, 5 Aug, 5pm @ Tampines Hub, Singapore. PM me for further details!

The audition clips of all finalists were recently released, and this is ours. Gotta admit that this was in no way perfect, but we did our best to add our own feminine touch to VIXX’s masculine song.

It’s been quite a journey putting together our auditions and finals piece, and I’m super fortunate to have these crazy girls doing this together as a team.

For our finals, we’re gunning for a whole different look and concept, and are training hard to give a good show. Do give us, as well as all other finalists, your support!

For enquiries on my dance crew, SSENZE, please email theofficialssenze@gmail.com

想笑就笑,想哭就哭

梦醒般发觉人生也不过如此,这样也跌跌撞撞地过了四分之一。过往好多歉疚没能安心的处理所以好几次跟自己过意不去。最近又和要好的朋友闹翻后,以一句 ”我们把这件事忘了吧” 和好如初。经不起考验的友谊或爱情又何必留着当废墟品?虽然平淡有平淡的美,可是能让你整夜安不了心的事也有它的精彩。也许人生的无奈在于太安心所以生活无聊没意义。我也该谢谢周边让我无奈的一切。

记忆中自己好像坚强许多,没那么常自责而顾虑的少很多。好久以前,曾为琐碎事物伤心难过,而如今不再放在心里的人与事真的好多。遗憾是难免的- 后来选择离开才不会留下更多不美好的记忆。但如果尝试挽救,后果一百八十度转变也有可能。人非神仙,我也只能后知后觉。

曾以凡事都是生命的考题来对待生活,我学了很多也发现自己逐渐把本子关上,不依赖课本步行生命之陆。完美而正确的答案不重要,也根本不存在。

“人生短短几十年,不要给自己留下什么遗憾,想笑就笑,想哭就哭,该爱的时候就去爱,无谓压抑自己。”

你啊,不能永远败在寻找完美的答案。

xoxo,
Viktoria Jean

긴장돼 필요해
a lot of alcohol
덩치는 산만해도
네 앞에선 작아지네
oh 내 맘 알까나

첫눈에 미끄러지듯이
Falling in love
내 맘을 훔친 범인인 건
바로 너
너의 미모 질투해 여신도
내 심장의 떨림은 진동 brrr
치명적인 매력이 날 killin’
섹시해 날 자극하는
Hot chili woo

Honey or baby or darling
It tickles my stomach just thinking about it
I’m nervous
I need alot of alcohol
I may be big
But i grow small in front of you
Do you know how I feel?

At first sight
Falling in love like I’m slipping
The criminal who stole my heart (it’s you)
Youre so beautiful
Even goddesses are jealous of your beauty
My heart trembles like a vibration (brrr)
Your fatal charms are killin me
You’re sexy
Provoking me like hot chili
Don’t misunderstand
I’ll truly fill up your empty glass

The most beautiful thing in my eyes right now

I’ll Be Yours

지금 뭐해? I’ll be yours
Baby I’ll be yours
갖고 싶지? I’ll be yours
Maybe I’ll be yours

ooh wee baby 뭐가 그리
겁이 나니?
좀 더 다가와 봐
저기부터 벌써 내 앞까지
check it on me
따라만 올 거니?

자꾸만 헷갈리게
나를 밀고 당기지
어느새 빠져들지
망설이단 나를 놓칠걸 whoo

oh 왜 내가 좋은지 들려줘
애만 태우지 말고 웃어봐
남자답게 더 쿨하게 말해봐

지금 뭐해? I’ll be yours
Baby I’ll be yours
갖고 싶지? I’ll be yours
Maybe I’ll be yours

Wait a minute! I’ll be yours
Baby I’ll be yours
네 눈에서 뚝 떨어지는
꿀처럼 더 달콤하게
말해줄게 I’ll be yours

ooh wee baby 감탄하겠지
반짝이는 Me
Like a popping champagne
때론 chic 하게 바꿔도 좋지
또 부드럽게
매력을 펼치지

어서 눈을 감고서
주사위를 굴려봐
어디로든 괜찮아
결국 내게 오게 될테니 whoo

Oh 복잡한 생각을 비워봐
어색한 네 마음도 던져봐
남자답게 네 진심을 말해봐

지금 뭐해? I’ll be yours
Baby I’ll be yours
갖고 싶지? I’ll be yours
Maybe I’ll be yours

Wait a minute! I’ll be yours
Baby I’ll be yours
네 눈에서 뚝 떨어지는
꿀처럼 더 달콤하게
말해줄게 I’ll be yours

Come On Baby
내게 좀 더 다가와봐
내 모든걸 Boy 가지라 하지
너도 절대 싫지 않은거를 알아
right right
내게 빠져 inside

주문을 걸어 up and down
사르르 녹아 버릴 night
1, 2 step 1, 1, 2 step
이젠 촛불을 끄고서
소원을 빌어봐

baby 코 끝에서 맴돈
Flower 향기처럼 널 간지럽힐래
어딜 가도 잊을 수 없게

baby 귓가에서 맴돈 소리처럼
내 목소릴 따라올래?
Feel so good Oh yeah-

내 맘 원해? I’ll be yours
Baby I’ll be yours
갖고 싶지? I’ll be yours
Maybe I’ll be yours

Wait a minute! I’ll be yours
Baby I’ll be yours
콕 찍어서 네 입술 끝에
은근슬쩍 가져가지
말해 뭐해? I’ll be yours

What’re you doing right now? I’ll be yours
Baby I’ll be yours
Want me? I’ll be yours
Maybe I’ll be yours

ooh wee baby
What’re you so scared of?
Come closer
From all the way over there. Till you’re in front of me
check it on me
Are you just gonna follow behind?

You keep confusing me
Playing games with me
Suddenly, I’ve fallen for you
If you hesitate, you’ll lose me

Tell me why you like me
Don’t just make me antsy, smile
Be a man, be cool and tell me

What’re you doing right now? I’ll be yours
Baby I’ll be yours
Want me? I’ll be yours
Maybe I’ll be yours

Wait a minute! I’ll be yours
Baby I’ll be yours
Like the honey that drips from your eyes
I’ll tell you more sweetly
I’ll be yours

ooh wee baby
You’ll be in awe
Cuz it’s the dazzling me
Like a popping champagne
Sometimes being chic is good
Softly, I’ll show you my charms

Close your eyes
Throw the dice
Wherever you want
Because it’ll come to me in the end

Empty out your complicated thoughts
Throw away your awkwardness
Be a man, tell me how you really feel

What’re you doing right now? I’ll be yours
Baby I’ll be yours
Want me? I’ll be yours
Maybe I’ll be yours

Wait a minute! I’ll be yours
Baby I’ll be yours
Like the honey that drips from your eyes
I’ll tell you more sweetly
I’ll be yours

Come On Baby
come a little closer
I’m telling you boy, to have all of me
I know you don’t hate it
right right
Fall into me, inside

Cast a spell up and down
Softly melting night
1, 2 step 1, 1, 2 step
Now blow the candles
Make a wish

baby, like the flower scent at the tip of your nose
I wanna tickle you
So you won’t forget me wherever you go

baby like the sound that lingers in your ears
Wanna follow my voice?
Feel so good Oh yeah-

Want my heart? I’ll be yours
Baby I’ll be yours
Want me? I’ll be yours
Maybe I’ll be yours

Wait a minute! I’ll be yours
Baby I’ll be yours
I’ll aim and slowly take it to your lips
What’s more to say?
I’ll be yours

Say My Name

Any other day
I would call, you would say,
“Baby, how’s your day?”
But today, it ain’t the same
Every other word is “Uh huh”, “Yeah, okay”
Could it be that you are at the crib with another lady
If you took it there
First of all let me say
I am not the one to sit around and be played
So prove yourself to me
I’m the girl that you claim
Why don’t you say the things
That you said to me yesterday

I know you say that I am assuming things
Something’s going down, that’s the way it seems
Shouldn’t be no reason why you’re acting strange
If nobody’s holding you back from me
‘Cause I know how you usually do
Where you’re saying everything to me times two
Why can’t you just tell the truth
If somebody’s there, then tell me who

Say my name, say my name
When no one is around you,
Say baby I love you
If you ain’t runnin’ game
Say my name, say my name
You actin’ kinda shady,
Ain’t callin’ me baby
Why the sudden change?

Say my name, say my name
If no one is around you,
Say baby I love you
If you ain’t runnin’ game
Say my name, say my name
You actin’ kinda shady,
Ain’t callin’ me baby
Better say my name

오늘 난 특별해
설레는 시작이야
왠지 알 수 없는
두근거림에 끌려
사뿐한 발걸음
오늘따라 괜찮은
느낌이라 좋아
예감이 다 좋아

(어떻게) 방심한 순간
oh 이건 말도 안돼
(그렇게) 날 보는 눈빛이
너무 완벽해
아무 흠이 없는
너를 가리킨 순간
내 것이 될 것 같아

탕탕탕 FINGERTIP
네 맘을 겨눌게
탕탕탕 FINGERTIP
심장이 멈추게
뭐 어때 네 곁에
더 다가가볼게
손 끝에 네가 있어
FINGER FINGERTIP
FINGER FINGERTIP

그래 너의 맘을 갖겠어 지금이야
시작해 완벽해
준비는 이미 끝났어

그 짧은 시간에
내 맘에 들어왔어
너 빼고 아무도
보이지도 않았어
한 걸음 다가가
너를 스치는 순간
느낌이 다 좋아
확실히 다가가

(123) 시간이 갈수록
열리는 fantasy
(321) 이 넓은 공간에
가득 가득해
아무 빈틈없는
너를 가리킨 순간
내 것이 될 것 같아

탕탕탕 FINGERTIP
네 맘을 겨눌게
탕탕탕 FINGERTIP
심장이 멈추게
뭐 어때 네 곁에
더 다가가볼게
손 끝에 네가 있어
FINGER FINGERTIP

오랫동안 기다린
순간에도 태연하게
그 누구도 모르게
눈치채지도 못하게
손짓하나 까딱까딱
네 맘을 조종할게
시간이 째깍째깍
다 가기 전에 다가와 1234

정말 어쩌지
널 조준했던 순간
사랑에 빠질 것 같아

탕탕탕 FINGERTIP
네 맘을 겨눌게 (맘을 겨눌게)
탕탕탕 FINGERTIP
심장이 멈추게 (심장이 멈추게)
뭐 어때 네 곁에
더 다가가볼게 (다가가볼게 )
손 끝에 네가 있어

그래 너의 맘을 갖겠어
지금이야

FINGER FINGERTIP

 

Today, I feel special
It’s a heart-fluttering beginning
I’m being pulled by a mysterious
pounding in my heart
My footsteps are light
I feel good today,
I like it
I have a good feeling

(What do I do) The moment I let down my guard
This can’t be
(Like that) The way you look at me
Is so perfect
The flawless you
The moment I pointed at
You became mine

Bang bang bang FINGERTIP
I will aim for your heart
Bang bang bang FINGERTIP
So your heart can stop
Who cares?
I’m gonna go closer to you
At the tip of my finger, you are there
FINGER FINGERTIP
FINGER FINGERTIP

I will have your heart right now
Let’s start, this is perfect
I’m all ready now

In that short time
You entered my heart
Besides you,
I can’t see anything
I’ll take a step toward you
The moment I pass by
The feeling is so good
I’m certain, I’ll go to you

(123) The more time passes
The more this fantasy opens
(321) In this wide space
You fill it up
The flawless you
The moment I pointed at the flawless you
You became mine

Bang bang bang FINGERTIP
I will aim for your heart
Bang bang bang FINGERTIP
So your heart can stop
Who cares?
I’m gonna go closer to you
At the tip of my finger, you are there
FINGER FINGERTIP

Though I waited for
This moment for a long time
I’ll be calm so no one will know
So no one will even notice
I’ll make one movement with my hands
To control your heart
Time goes tick tock
Before it passes, come to me, 1234

What do I do?
The moment I controlled you
I fell in love

Bang bang bang FINGERTIP
I will aim for your heart

3 ways to wear Swarovski Crystal Pixie Nail Art!

Swarovski Crystal Pixie nail art is the manicure industry’s best kept secret. It’s still popular in Japan and the States, but strangely this style is quite rare in Singapore. I have seen some gorgeous pictures on Instagram so I was really excited when Vanitee matched me up with a lovely manicurist, Janelle from Nailbuddies, who gave me a very rare Swarovski Crystal Pixie gel manicure!

You may be wondering – what on earth are Swarovski Crystal Pixies? They are tiny round crystals mixed with other bullions, and serve as little pretty gems to adorn your nail art. So you may choose to highlight one finger, or bling out all 10 of them (thumbs included). I swear, they are much shinier, lighter and sturdier than your average plastic nail gems. After my experience, I decided to write this piece about 3 ways to wear the Swarovski Crystal Pixie Nail Art!

Janelle has 2 types of this: the dark and light crystals. I chose to use the light ones this time, but it really depends on what base colour you choose, and which crystal will complement it best.

Anyway, more about Nailbuddies! Janelle offers a convenient home-based service, so you may select from her range of available dates. If you’re an Eastie, her home in Tampines Street 84 (psst…please see the app for her full address) is just 3 bus-stops always from the interchange. If you’re lost, just give Janelle a direct ping in the Vanitee chat and she will give you directions!

I arrived at Janelle’s place for the first time, and was invited into her spacious, private manicure haven. Her manicure workspace is so comfortable and I felt right at home. Plus Janelle is so chatty and friendly, I felt at ease being in a stranger’s room! Right away, I could feel her passion and expertise with the number of tools and gel bottles in her room.
Choosing from her stash of gel colours is really not easy – her collection is amazing!! This is just some of it:

I picked the dark, starry midnight steel blue (which already naturally bling because I love glittery nails!), and Janelle got right to work. First she patiently removed my DIY-ed gelish nails, then trimmed my nails into nice round shapes, before buffing and taming my messy cuticles. I applaud her skills! She really saved my ugly nails.

See? She’s giving my nails some TLC (won’t show you her face, till she gives me full permission!)

Following the TLC, she gave my nails 2 layers of base colour. Then she takes out some very delicate skinny tools to begin glueing the Swarovski Crystal Pixies. So fascinating!

I cannot emphasis how carefully she placed the crystals on my fingernails, and arranges them artistically. It’s like a surgery going on in here!

She actually pours the crystals onto the fingernails that require more crystals, as this gives a more even effect.

In the span of 2.5 hours, my nails were done! Revealing the full pictures in 3…2….1…

So for your next nail adventure, why don’t you try these 3 amazing ways to wear the Swarovski Crystal Pixies?

1. Forming Shapes with the crystals

With a silver sticker strip, a triangle was first shaped, before filling it up with crystals. This is my personal favourite because of the endless possibilities! Yes shape anything you want. You will never get bored.

2. Crystal Clusters

Spot the crystal clusters! Yes these are on my index finger (top hand), and middle finger (bottom hand). Love how the crystal are clustered near my cuticles to give variety to the texture.  These subtle differences lets your nails stand out from everyone else’s boring old matte patterns. (But no offence, I have days when I just want matte black nails)

3. Pairing Crystals with Bigger Gems

If you’re looking to go over-the-top, Swarovski Crystal Pixies will be able to help. When paired with chunkier gems, the effect is crazy – I swear it’s the first thing people see when I wave to them, in the dark, 5 feet away.

See how the bling-bling gems stand out in this full-manicure shot?

Swarovski Crystal Pixies really helped to add a gorgeous shiny glow, and an interesting bumpy 3D effect. Sometimes I wash my hair, and I can feel the crystals on my head – it’s like a scalp massage! (Not kidding) Or maybe I’m biased because I’m loving it so much.

Really enjoyed my manicure session with Janelle from Nailbuddies. Learnt from her many tips and tricks that she willingly shares, which include: a manicure must always end with capping the outer edges with a layer of finish! Also, if topping up your manicure with Swarovski Crystal Pixies, you don’t actually need a top coat. Her skills with the crystals are amazing and if you have never tried the Swarovski Crystal Pixies, I strongly encourage you to. She’s available at @nailbuddies on Instagram and Vanitee app!

It’s super easy to book a session from Vanitee! There are beauty offers from nails, hair, brow and lash, makeup and hairstyling and facial treatments uploaded daily from over 1,700 beauty salons! It’s truly Singapore’s #1 app for booking beauty services. And conveniently, you can also see customer reviews and view the artists’ portfolios on the app itself, by simply clicking on their profiles! And as I mentioned, you get to chat direct with the artist, so you can get your requests way in advance. Like for my session, Janelle checked with me way in advance the type of design I wanted. Sounds good right? On top of that, you can earn rewards from booking on the app too! Sign up with my link <<viktol1>> and get $15 OFF any beauty services! Download the Vanitee app now from www.vanitee.com!
Anyway, here are some screenshots of the app to illustrate. When you search for “Nailbuddies”, this page should surface:

When you click “Portfolio”, you get to view photos of the work that she has done for her past clients. That’s right – she does Tsum Tsum nail art!

Under reviews, you can also view what others have said about your artist. I gave Janelle an honest review, with some pictures for reference. You can view it on her page!

Looking forward to my next manicure session, and to try new patterns using the Swarovski Crystal Pixies. Have already booked my next session with Nailbuddies!

If you have pictures after your Swarovski Crystal Pixie sessions, do share! 🙂

Xoxo,
Viktoria Jean
P.S. Sharing a bonus picture I took with Janelle’s pup!! He’s totally adorable, and is usually kept away when strangers or customers come. Special case only that he is let out to play with me 🙂

Yes No Maybe

받지마 알잖아
목소릴 들으면
분명히 내 맘이
또 다시 흔들려
잠깐만 얘기만
나누려 했지만 했지만

Yes no maybe
도대체 내 맘이 뭔지
다신 너를 안 보려 해도
또 너에게 가고 있어
이젠 no more baby
이러는 나를 난 hate me
너를 안 볼 수가 없어
그런데 볼 수도 없어

Yes no no yes no
No yes yes no yes

가지마 돌아가 만나면
알잖아 또 빠져들어가

Yes no maybe
도대체 내 맘이 뭔지
다신 너를 안 보려 해도
또 너에게 가고 있어
이젠 no more baby
이러는 나를 난 hate me
너를 안 볼 수가 없어
그런데 볼 수도 없어

언제까지 이럴 순 없잖아
끝이 뻔한 길을
계속 걸어갈 수는 없잖아
가면 안 되는 길을
되풀이 하는 내 모습을 봐
이런 내가 이해가 안가

Yes no maybe
도대체 내 맘이 뭔지
다신 너를 안 보려 해도
또 너에게 가고 있어
이젠 no more baby
이러는 나를 난 hate me
너를 안 볼 수가 없어
그런데 볼 수도 없어

Yes no no yes no
No yes yes no yes
Yes no no yes no
No yes yes no yes

하지마
마지막이라고 하면서도
또 다시

 

Translation

Don’t pick up
I know when
I hear your voice
My heart will shake again
Though I tried to
Just talk to you

Yes no maybe
I don’t know my heart
I try to not see you ever again
But I’m going to you again
Now no more baby
I hate myself for doing this, hate me
I can’t not see you
But I can’t see you either

Yes no no yes no
No yes yes no yes

Don’t go, if you go
You know you’ll fall for him again

Yes no maybe
I don’t know my heart
I try to not see you ever again
But I’m going to you again
Now no more baby
I hate myself for doing this, hate me
I can’t not see you
But I can’t see you either

I can’t keep doing this
The end is so obvious
I can’t keep walking on this path
This path I shouldn’t be on
I see myself going back on it
I don’t understand myself

Yes no maybe
I don’t know my heart
I try to not see you ever again
But I’m going to you again
Now no more baby
I hate myself for doing this, hate me
I can’t not see you
But I can’t see you either

Yes no no yes no
No yes yes no yes
Yes no no yes no
No yes yes no yes

Don’t do this
I tell myself this is the last time
But yet again

April Story – wait isn’t it February?

Happy Lunar New Year everybody!

It’s only February, but already I’m way too excited for the rest of year and can’t wait to live it. Spring’s return is the annual promise of hope and renewal, of abundance of laughter and joy. Growing up, Lunar New Year meant extra cash from angpaos, and waking up early on Chu Yi to pay respect to my elders. The true joys of it only hit me as I advanced in my 20s. I watched my loved ones grow old while the young ones of my generation have taken over their vitality. I really began to take less for granted. The clock ticks on even as you’re hating every moment of mingling awkward with your relatives, uncles and aunties for 2 hours of your life. That’s 2 hours of your life you’re never getting back. So why not make full use of it, and gift them with the best present that is worth more than a lifetime of angpao money? Your time. Cherish every second of it. Every minute you spend getting older is one step further to becoming a better person.

Here’s a really short video by SSENZE to celebrate Spring, especially the coming of April which is the cusp of a new season. This was a quick one with less than 3 practices, but we really enjoyed celebrating Spring. And if you ever google for the translated lyrics, it’s actually a really sad love story.

Hope you enjoy, and thanks for watching!

Gong xi fa cai!

APRIL – April Story

언제인지 모를 참 오래전 얘기
소녀는 아무 말도 할 수 없었대
시간이 흐르고 또 계절이 가도
여전한 그 마음 어떻게든 숨겼대
행복해 보여
그 모습조차 미워질 만큼
점점 커져가는 마음
전하지 못할 비밀이 됐대요
봄의 나라에 사는 그 소녀는
얼음 나라의 멋진 소년을 보았죠
겨울 나라의 예쁜 그녀 곁에서
늘 웃고 있는 그 모습을
아름다운 맘을 억지로 숨기고
아름다운 둘을 위해 기도를 했대요
서로의 맘이 변하지 않기를
하늘에 매일 빌었대요 마치 나처럼
행복해 보여
그 모습조차 미워질 만큼
정말 어쩔 수 없는 마음
또 바보처럼 혼자서 달래요
봄의 나라에 사는 그 소녀는
얼음 나라의 멋진 소년을 보았죠
서로의 맘이 변하지 않기를
하늘에 매일 빌었대요 마치 나처럼
아픈 동화 속 얘기가
모두 내 얘기 같았어
다른 봄이 오길 바래요
난 그래요
억지로 숨겨둔 내 맘이 닿을까 봐
항상 혼자만 앓아요
봄의 나라에 사는 그 소녀는
얼음 나라의 멋진 소년을 보았죠
겨울 나라의 예쁜 그녀 곁에서
늘 웃고 있는 그 모습을
아름다운 맘을 억지로 숨기고
기적처럼 다 지워지기를 바라죠
아무 마음 없던 그 날이 오기를
하늘에 매일 빌었대요 마치 나처럼

This is a short post about Christmas

‘Tis the season to be reminded that quality time with your loved ones are the best gifts you can afford, which no amount of money can ever replace.

Cheers to all the old souls who will never be too old for log cakes, stories by the fireplace, midnight cookies and milk, and all of Christmas’ novelties.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE ❤

Dedicating this little one-take dance piece by SSENZE (filmed with the help of Marvin PD-nim!) to everyone out there who’s never stopped believing in the magic of Christmas.

Enjoy.
