The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

About two weeks ago, I gave birth to my 3rd child, a beautiful baby boy and I can't be happier.. or more tired. LOL! Obviously, having a newborn, lack of sleep is a given.. Nonetheless, I won't give it up for anything.

Not many people knew this time around that I was expecting my third child. In the beginning, I wanted to wait until my first trimester was over to tell people, but in the end, I just decided to keep it to myself. It was like a delicious secret that I didn't want to share.

I just figured as long as I told the people closest to me, that was all that mattered. However, now that my pregnancy is over and done with and my baby boy has safely arrived, I'm more than ecstatic to share my news with everyone.

Zaidan Alif, born on 23rd November, 8.35pm, weighing 3.67kgs. Pic taken at 5hrs old.

There are some people (who are rather close to me), however, who refuse to congratulate me -- for whatever petty reason, but it's okay. I get it. Not everyone has the capacity to feel happy for others. They'd rather be bitter and petty and that's okay. The important thing is that my family is happy and healthy and I have plenty of wonderful people in my life.

Anyways, for this Music Monday, I decided to dedicate a song to my darling little son, The First Time (Ever I Saw Your Face), by Leona Lewis -- originally sung by Roberta Flack. The reason I chose this song was because the song rings true with how I felt the first time I saw him.

The first time I held him, he just looked up to me and smiled -- much to the surprise of everyone around me. The nurses, my husband, the doctor.. I thought it was a fluke shot smile, but when the nurse brought him to me that night for his feeding, he gave me another one of his special smiles and I felt like the luckiest mommy on earth. :)


The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the endless skies, my love
To the dark and the endless skies

And the first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hands
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command, my love
That was there at my command, my love

And the first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
And I knew our joy would fill the earth
And last till the end of time, my love
And it will last till the end of time, my love

The first time ever I saw your face, your face
Your face, your face

I hope you all enjoy it, have a happy week ahead of you and happy Music Monday! :)

I Won't Give Up

I dare say I have a good marriage. It's not always perfect but I'm happy and the children are happy and that's all that matters. Yet at times, there are certain parties who just can't stand to see us happy and try to meddle in our lives like it's their goddamn right. So to those people who don't have a life, I feel sorry for you.

So for this Music Monday, I decided to choose this beautiful song by Jason Mraz (who I never really fancied, until I heard this song), I Won't Give Up. :) Happy Music Monday, y'all! :)

My Girl

I know I'm a little bit behind on Music Monday but what the heck, I'm submitting my entry anyway. I was supposed to post this yesterday but I was too busy and too damn tired to even start the PC.

Anyways, this week, I'm featuring the song "My Girl" by The Temptations.. becauuuuseee.. my beautiful baby girl has turned 5! :) Well, she's not exactly a BABY baby, but still my little baby girl. No matter how old she gets..

It seems like they grow up at the speed of light. One day, I'm in the labor room and the next, she's saying things like "OMG, Mommy! I was freaaaaking out!!"

I cherish every moment I spend with her and I wish she'd just grow up much more slower.. so I can savour these precious moments before they grow up to be teens and get all smart-mouthed (see if they DARE!) and be all angsty and stuff.

Zaira Alishya born 3.51kgs on 29th October 2012 @ Damai Specialist Hospital, KK





Allie's 2nd Birthday




Happy 5th Birthday, baby girl. Love you loads. This one's for you.. :)

Don't Be Sad, Chong Wei!


When you're weary, feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all;
I'm on your side. when times get rough
And friends just cant be found,
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.

When you're down and out,
When you're on the street,
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you.
Ill take your part.
When darkness comes
And pains is all around,
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.

Sail on silver boy,
Sail on by.
Your time has come to shine.
All your dreams are on their way.
See how they shine.
If you need a friend
Im sailing right behind.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.

Call Me Maybe

I almost forgot that it's Monday. As usual, I keep on losing track of what day it is because time flies so fast. It's already July! Half year is already gone! So anyways, since it's a Monday, I can't possibly miss out on my favorite segment, Music Monday! :)
music
I've been missing for over a month and to my friends who "supposedly" miss me, well, I haven't received any calls or texts over the past month or so, so it's hard to believe that you truly do miss me. LOL! I'm a brat. Call me, maybe?

Judge me all you want, but I like this song. It's upbeat and the I like the vid. The guy is pretty durrnn hot. Enjoy! Hope it chases your Monday blues away! :)

Drive By - Train

It's Music Monday once again and before I sent my son to school this morning, I asked him what song he had in mind for my weekly music segment. Since I let Allie choose last week's song, this week it's Buddy's turn. So without hesitation, he chose Train's Drive By. He so loves this song because it reminds him of the Puss in Boots dance off scene. :)





So hope you enjoy this week's Music Monday!

Bohemian Rhapsody

I know I'm late for Music Monday, but it's one of my fave segments of the week, so I'm pulling in a late one here. Besides, it's still Monday in some parts of the world. :)

For this week, I asked Allie to choose a song for me because frankly, I can't really think of a song to feature. So I set her the task to choose songs that were NOT from her cartoons. :P So she settled with "This is the real life". When I told her I didn't know that song, she insisted "You know lah! It's the "easy come, easy go.. little high little low" song!

So Bohemian Rhapsody it is! Yes, even I forgot the opening line for that song was "This is the real life.."

Yes, my daughter is a fan of Queen. She used to request for "Under Pressure" every single time we went inside the car. Until all of us couldn't take it anymore. And the first thing she told me after she came home from watching Happy Feet 2 with her Nana was, "Mommy, they sang my song, Under Pressure!"

Well, I guess, the apple does not fall too far from the tree in this case. I love me some Queen too! Haha.. So here's Allie's choice for Music Monday, Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen! Classic! :)



Hope you all enjoy her pick! :) Happy Music Monday!

Skinny Love - Birdy

I miss participating in Music Monday. I'm always too busy that I can't even get my days straight. Besides, truth be told, I have been busy catching up on the latest episodes of my tv series which explains my absence from the virtual world.

Anyways, I hope everyone is doing great and your Monday blues aren't too blue. Here's a song that I have been addicted to ever since I heard it in Vampire Diaries (my absolute fave guilty pleasure) last year. It was from Season 2 (I think it was during one of the last few episodes) so I was surprised to hear it on FlyFm the other day.

Here's Skinny Love by Birdy. Enjoy!!



The song Skinny Love was originally composed and performed by Bon Iver but was re-done by Birdy, an English msuician who released her version on January 2011 and made it to the top 20 UK Singles Chart. The original version by Bon Iver was featured in Season 5 of Grey's Anatomy (I noticed during my Grey's marathon the other day). This song is pretty popular with tv series, I guess. I think the song (both original and and Birdy's version) is just beautiful and heartbreaking. But I just absolutely love songs with piano accompaniment (if that's what you call it) so that's why I chose Birdy's version for today. Hope you all enjoy it!

Coward

Coward. That's the English translation for this week's Music Monday by local singer/songwriter, Yuna. I wasn't a big fan of Yuna before.. I mean, I think she's talented and nice (bumped into her with boyfriend Qi) a couple of times and they're always nice but I never really took the time to go on YouTube and check out every single one of her songs.

Well, that is until I heard this song, Penakut (Coward) last month or so ago.. The song is about a girl in love singing to the guy she loves about how unfair it is that he's in love with another as well. Basic love triangle but the lyrics and the melody is so beautiful and haunting, that I can just listen to it over and over and over again. Take a listen and hope you enjoy this beautiful tune by Yuna.



There's another version of this song, sung by local rap/hip hop group AMPG, which is the "guy's response" to the girl. It's pretty dope! So if you want to know this "coward's" answer, here's Takut - AMPG Collective feat. Yuna.

Happy Music Monday, everyone!

Lagenda

I've been wanting to put up this song for this week's Music Monday segment because this whole weekend, my children has been watching the late P.Ramlee's movies from Labu Labi to Tiga Abdul to Nujum Pak Belalang, Madu Tiga, Masam-masam Manis, etc.. and they just love it so much. They get into a fit of giggles and they'll imitate the scenes when they're playing with each other. It hardly comes as a surprise, though, as seeing as that's how my siblings and I were when we were their age watching these movies.

The song Lagenda (Legend), performed by Sheila Majid, was written and composed especially as a tribute to Allahyarham Tan Sri P.Ramlee -- who was and will always be my favourite Malay actor of all time.


On Sunday, the world lost another legend -- power house artist, Whitney Houston -- whose sudden demise rocked the music world as well as everyone else who has ever listened to her music.


My sister and I used to sing and dance to her songs all the time and "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" still remains our "pick-me-up" song. My sister was saddened by her passing but at least she was able to witness the magic of Whitney Houston at her show here in KL some years back.

I'm sure this Music Monday, many of you will be featuring her music as a tribute to her so instead, this song "Lagenda" is my tribute to mourn the passing of a great singing legend.

Also, this song is dedicated to my late father, who is a legend in MY eyes. Today, marks his 11th death anniversary according to the Islamic calendar -- 21 RabiulAwal. How time flies.. at times I still feel like I can just pick up the phone and call him for advice. I miss him still with each and every passing day. Al-Fatihah.


Here's the song Lagenda.. dedicated to everyone and anyone who has been affected by the death of someone they love and idolize.



Kaulah satu satunya
Di antara berjuta
Insan teristimewa
Patah tak tumbuh lagi
Hilang belum berganti
Kerana kau tersendiri
Kau kebanggaan kita
Kau budayawan bangsa
Engkau lagenda

You are the only one
Amongst millions
The most special being
One that is irreplaceable
Lost to us yet without a replacement
Because you are one of a kind
You are our pride
You are our national icon
You are a legend

Good Feeling

Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right. ~Oprah Winfrey

It's the start of the New Year.. I truly hope and wish that 2012 brings a lot of great moments, an abundance of everything wonderful -- health, wealth, love, joy, peace, laughter, happiness, contentment and blessings from God.

I feel GOOD about this year. It's this feeling that I have.

Photobucket


Perhaps, I'm still feeling the high of having completed a lot of last year's resolutions and I just hope it carries on into this year. I've written down all my wishes, plans and dreams for this year and we'll see if I can keep up with them.

Time to focus on more positive stuff, leave the negative energy and forces behind and so, to kick off the New Year and the first Music Monday pick for this year, here's Flo-Rida with Good Feeling. Enjoy!!

Oh and it's time to break out dancing spidey. He's been on a break for far too long! :)

Dedication To My Ex

Dedication To My Ex (Miss That) is a song from Lloyd ft. Andre 3000 (from Outkast) and is one of my fave songs at the moment. Yeah, it's a bit vulgar but I love the song 'coz the beat is awesome, it's catchy and Lloyd has that Michael Jackson vibe going on. First time I heard it few weeks ago, I thought MJ did a song with Andre 3000 before he died.. it's not exactly the same.. but still, it's pretty close! I think it has awesome sauce poured all over it!

Speaking of ex-es and break ups, the Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries divorce will probably be the straw that breaks the camel's back. Kim Kardashian is finally losing fans and popularity. A lot of people are ridiculing her decision of filing for divorce after only 72 days of marriage.

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries Divorce (Image from: YouKnowYouCare)

I actually do follow the Kardashian's reality show (just because I love to watch other people's drama) and while I've never particularly liked Kris Humphries, Kim is just so ridiculous for making a mockery of the institution of marriage. The Fairytale Wedding was aired on our shores less than a month ago. It was a lavish ceremony and the money that went into the preparation of that wedding could probably save thousands of lives in poverty stricken countries! And to see that Kim treats the unity with such indifference that she HAS to file for divorce citing irreconcilable differences, is just so ridiculous. Such a famewhore. I'm sure everyone saw that coming, though. I know I did.

But still, in this economy, where people are being retrenched and losing jobs, living costs are skyrocketing high, healthcare has left a lot to be desired, minimum wage is literally at it's minimum, fans are seeing how unfair life is that people like Kim Kardashian are making tons of money for being a talent-less twat. Excuse my French.

Oh well. Kris Humphries would probably be dedicating this to his ex soon enough. As for my ex, we're on good terms, thank you very much. Cheers to that! LOL! So here, take a listen and watch the music video for Dedication To My Ex by Lloyd feat. Andre 3000. Oh yeah, and it's time to bring out dancing spidey.
