my very own karaoke...err...

u know, that thing u have in ur computer, the thing called sound recorder, yup that thing is addictive...today is pink's bday, happy happy happy bday pink!may Allah bless u always and have a great year ahead!anyway, she requested some songs for her bday...since my internet connection uhmm sucks for no better word, i decided to record her the song she requested, kim yoo kyung's starlight tears....yes it's in korean (so pink u may have noticed all the weird pronounciations, yes, i don't even know how to pronounce most of the lyrics, so i made them up!) and yes i don't speak korean (jae may attest to this)...before that pink asked me to sing hikki's first love when i called her online...i think she recorded that (please don't use that as a bargaining chip in the future to threaten me with yah pink?)...then, i got this idea that i can record the second requested song for pink...i diligently found the lyrics and song for that particular song (it's not that difficult since i got both on my laptop, really, so no diligence is actually needed)...


and there u go...i recorded countless of my singing...they sounded hideous but yeah, at least i tried...and i was earnest...it is a bday present to a dear friend!then, after sending the file to pink, i resumed the recording activity...and rolled on the floor laughing upon hearing my own voice!i sang weirdly, with awkward pauses (as i sang along with the song playing in my earphones and the recorder could only record ever 60 seconds, so i had to repeatedly press record) and weirder pronounciations...i also ran out of breath here and there so i may sound like i'm on verge of orgasm (not that i've experience that before mind u!) every now and then...i'm pretty sure if the real singer hear this, she will cry...not of enlightenment, more like profound frustration and shock and finally sadness, that her song is being butchered by this crazy foreigner...


anyway, i kept finding songs and kept on recording...at one point, i even felt like getting a mike and video camera to record myself!what horrors!no, that's only a momentary madness...i've recovered my senses now...i'm well aware i am no mariah carey...but yeah, i love the recording thingie...i recorded messages to my friends and i now know what i can get for my friends for their bdays!i will sing for them (background noise: 'arrrgggghhhhh nooooooo!!!God save us all!!!!')!!!yes, that is what i should do!errr....maybe it's better to record personalised messages than sing, u reckon (unanimous answer: hell yes!keep the singing to ur own ears!)?hehehe....


p/s: sorry meghna and evie, for ur ear drums suffered unimaginable torture during the recording process!ah and no animals, stuff toys and turtles are hurt in the process!


happy bday dear friend!happy bday pink!eat lotsa cake and remember me who's far away!
