Counter tenor Vs Soprano VS falsetto

Well, I guess most of you would try to figure them out by what are calling as Counter tenor or soprano? Ok, if am saying soprano straight to your ears then what will trigger out in your mind? would they be, Sarah Brightman? David DQ Lee?Andreas Scholl,or Vitas or Ning baizura?or few people that you may know who are related to the analogy of soparano thing. So how about Counter tenor? Before we move on to the entire of this blog (as am writing and creating the entire of it now) I am proudly allege my self that for me Soprano or Counter Tenor is something to die for! I am the hard die fan for this kind of mild-mannered music! Well, I do admire those who can hit some of notes with the head voice instead the chest voice. What is chest voice and head voice? Well, I let u know in shortly.

Well, based on my humble knowledge regarding to these kind of sounds, soprano is the same thing as counter tenor. Soprano is to be called or categorized as Female voice, which is also known as head voice. However, Counter tenor is referred to a man who is using his head voice. Head voice is a voice that is produce thru the head (yeah , the voice is passed via oral cavity but the way it is projected will totally end up with different kind of sounds) rather that the chest. If u are talking, the voice that is projected comes from your chest rather than the head. To have a richer , fuller and rounded sound especially to have the falsetto a.k.a head voice, is not that easy especially when you are doing the transmission of the sound (from chest voice to head voice or vice versa). It will need to have some tricks when u are getting scrawny and tired during the state of affair of hitting some notes using falsetto or any kind of high notes using chest voice. But Head voice is so much thrill to me. Most people don’t really , especially not all people like the way Ning Baizura sings a song. Well, she is one of the courageous and plucky singers to me as she comes out with unique voice and this is her originality. To be a prefect singer doesn’t mean you need to have a high voice as we people usually expected from their favorite singers. Nah, by having the ability to play with some tricks when u are tired in the midst of projecting your voices, the sounds should be fuller and richer and more rounded (the perquisite of having these elements, you need to improve and work hard on your diction (earing skill is required here)especially when the end of sounds are consonants), not too nasal – the sound comes from your upper oral cavity as the air is pushed by your tongue or the movement of your epiglottis is not that right to the correct position ) but if you are having nasal voice than you can adjust the voices that u are projecting by control your jaw movement. Fuh, am not that a professional in this kind of thing but just a slight idea coz am driven by the higher enquiry of human’s voice. To those who are expert in this kind of field, do correct me if am wrong and am glad to have your comments, dear my silent readers.Thank god, basic understanding about English phonetic and phonology when I was in my undergrad session helps me, at least, to react to the sounds around me.But hey, i cant sing well but in case you want to join me in a bathroom, so am glad to entertain you will the very best i am. Just that dont try to be or pretending to be suffocated while am serving you with the voice of mine coz any harm which is uponed to the preformace will not be granted by any special treats from me due to the attempting of mine. People, sound makes your view of world to me more complete as it is going along to the color of the god’s creations. Well, people, enjoy the song ya. I love the voice of David Lee…and i love Opera vibes!!!!!

The Pieces Don't Fit Anymore (undiscovered)-James Morrison

I've been twisting and turning in a space that's too small
I've been drawing the line and watching it fall
You've been closing me in, closing the space in my heart
Watching us fading and watching it all fall apart
Well I can't explain why it's not enough
'Cause I gave it all to you
And if you leave me now
Oh just leave me now
It's the better thing to do
It's time to surrender
It's been too long pretending
There's no use in trying
When the pieces don't fit anymore
The pieces don't fit here anymore
Well you pulled me under so I had to give in
Such a beautiful mess that's breaking my skin
Well I hide all the bruises, I hide all the damage that's done
But I show how I'm feeling until all the feeling has gone

Well I can't explain why it's not enough
'Cause I gave it all to you
And if you leave me now
Oh just leave me now
It's the better thing to do
Well it's time to surrender
It's too long pretending
There's no use in trying
When the pieces don't fit anymore
The pieces don't fit anymore

Oh don't misunderstand how I feel
'Cause I've tried, yes I've tried
But still I don't know why
No I don't know why
I don't know why
Why I can't explain why it's not enough
I gave it all to you
And if you leave me now
Just leave me now
It's the better thing to do
But it's time to surrender
It's been too long pretending
There's no use in trying
When the pieces don't fit anymore
The pieces don't fit here anymore
The pieces don't fit anymore


James Morrison - Pieces Don't Fit Anymore

The Pieces don’t fix anymore

Out of blue I would like to have the above headline as the topic of today. I was driven by the song I am hearing now. James Marion is the man of today blog. He He. “The Pieces don’t fix anymore” is a nice song but it can be a bit poignant to be heard. Just that am feel so blue due to the words he has here. I mean the song tho. Really sounds placid and so art indeed. Too much of listening this kind of song is going to killing my sense of spreading love and even making love which is based on the true foundation of feeling rather that covetousness of me. By considering the covetousness as the priority of me (it is just a case of study huh) then can it means that the dark side might be too dominant within me as it may radiate in my veins, huh? I sms “the pieces don’t fix anymore” to someone just now. Nah by telling you this, hope that am not getting any conjectures of gaining contemptible attention. Well, people, just listen to the song then u will or perhaps, may be able to grasp the sense am talking about. Hope that you all come with a great mental picture of the song and its wordings, at precise as what has been represented by Jamse. Well, I got it with me tho!

My freaking out sunday

As planned with Jlo aka ok (hereafter), both of us went out and gathered at somewhere nearby KLCC to meet up with our new biasness partner “in crime”. Guess what, even if, the meeting was intended to have a real business purpose but then it became a small congregation with one of our school mates, in fact, she was our form mates but hope she will be one of our biz partner relly2 soon as what have been planned..muhahahahha..

My best "Idok" and me. I have known her for more that 10 years!My ex-primary mates, ex- formates and ex-collueage.( to many exs with her huh?)

I have no idea what is the name of this food. It costed us rm 9.90 per bowl.But the taste is not that really fucking superb!

I guess that day was “eating” time coz we fiiled our stomach until it cant bear with load of foods. It start at one of “high” class cafĂ©- Thanks for Idok coz she treated me and my turn will knock your contentment at some other days, then after we settled down all those things and planned a new mission, then we as the crow flies went to KLCC. However, in the midst of gulping down the forlorn of not watching a movie, I threw a bare suggestion to have a Karaoke time. So Idok and Lysa agreed to follow my idea. So,I won the voice here .ahaha. Thanks for both of them coz so understanding at that moment. Clap3 to them. I guess it was quite long for me not to force my self without stinting to have a far-fetched laughing. The day was like to be fulled with lot of jokes and ideas to be laughed at. Not to mention, when the “sperano” thing came to the surface. In fact, I cant really accept that KLCC was mistaken to be “Pavilion’ by us. OMG, I cant really believe that such thing will be bumped to our focus. I guess the “exhilaration” to get as soon as possible to New KTV (Karaoke Center) driven us imprudent and so fanatical. We needed to chase the time tho as the day was getting dark. It was around 6pm I guess. We had great times during that evening. For the first thing to be done, I opened the curtain by singing a jingoistic song. I sang Sarawak’s song. I managed not to forget the lyric tho! Clap3 for me. Then, followed by the Counter-tenor of mine Hahahaha, don’t believe that I can do it just that I love to make Idok fooled around. But I guess I really can make it. I do? Give me one more try Ok idok?

I love the vibes that we had over there. I sang one of my favorite songs- Kau ilham ku by Mambai ans it is such a rhythmical song, indeed.

Ok, i cna handle it form here, and the way i sang songs was pretty straigtforwad.

Idok n Lysa- nanyi lagu sedih giler babeng..huhuhu..sayuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

I can play this song with a guitar tho! Easy to be played I guess. We managed to had some pic snapping. This can be an authentication that we have been here. Again, I asked idok and Lysa if we can have a dinner at KFC for free.I do appreciate these girls coz, they did agree with me. Senang nak jaga le mereka ne kalo bawak berjalan2. Tak rugi gua cakap sama lu. Next station was Kotaraya. After million seconds of thinking and we coma to a decision to go to one of KFC’s Branch which is at Kotaraya. Heading to Kotaraya by using public transport is so challenging I guess especially when the dark comes to take part and it will be a widespread thing as that night (Saturday) to all. It was weekend, baby. Hahaha. Thanks to our friend a.k.a a manager in that fast food restaurant coz we had plenty of food to be tasted with a gluttonous craving. I love KFC Meltz. It is so flavorsome and lip-smacking to me. In fact, the Varity bucket did not attract even my single attention tho rather than I was licking my finger because of the appetizing of the Meltz. It tastes as Murtabak.

I love this meal..the meltz.........................looks simple but the taste is so superb to me tho.

Get ur tongue be there and and tell me your own appraisal about the food ok? I was having diarrhea for the next day and I totally assume that this could be due to Idok who has not washed her hand before having her meal. Just imagine that she was there with a bare hand and form the whole day and till that night she exposed to lot of epidemics in the region of her. Scary huh. In fact, after a few hours of the dinner she claimed that she had to be at toiltet frequently and it was diarrhea!! She touched my meal that why I was infected too..Arhhhh..shit huh.. Well, overall, that day wahs so splendid and am looking forward to have it more and more. Cant wait to have a small reunion among my school mates as suggested before. People will come to that get-together thing in a very different compared to their age, sttus and occupation . It was not in secondary school anymore tho.OMG, the time moves so fast even not only me who claim this state of affair. But then this is the journey of life which is to be mapped out as a collection of experiences .They come in may ways and poles apart representative to us by regarding the time and surrounding and the way we react to such these things. Well, I am totally dry today and writing this blog with a bare mind without sufficient of material and morphemes of word to be contextualized here. I am carving for more for the next reading to you, dear my silent readers. Agian, thanks for Idok and accidently toLysa for the companionship.Till then, have a nice day ya.

Welcome on board 2008...

Happy new year people…

A bit late for me to acknowledge the year of 2008 in my blog. Well, I was late to do so for 2 days. Ok, no harm for that. It is just because I need time to keep my self in a cool depiction. Nah, I am still a live and well. Thank god coz I do have another opportunity to see the sun again as in years before. It is 2008, and now am 25 year old and 3 days after the date of commitment (every 31 December). Again, even not all dreams are fully achieved but then I still happy with what I am. Just a short recap what I have done throughout 07;-

1. I lost my grandma on August
2. Being solo again and it caused me tears (unbelievable as I admitted it)
3. My Master thesis is still in progressing
4. I have resigned from my previous job and now am doing something new (which is not in teaching line anymore)
5. Carrying out my desires to stand still for the career am trying to do and build with the aim of having the same level as other human beings in term of health, financial, emotional (Ed, sorry for these quotations and thanks for these ideas), happiness than sadness and joy.

The above lists sound not that bad huh. I mean I am not that worse just that my thesis is not completed on time as I need another one more semester to do. Gosh, it causes me cash! People talk about their new resolution when a new year comes to the surface. Well, not to say that by doing so causes u to be called as ‘blue eyes” but that can help you to be more levelheaded to your surrounding, above all, the mistake you have in past and how are you going to tackle the mistakes order to lessen the sense of guilty and burden you may feel due to the mistake? Human is imperfect tho. Talking about this, I know a run of the mill dude and he is darn fucking haughty and supercilious. He says he wants to give critic but hardly to accept other judgments toward him. He says he is a perfectionist and he indubitably can alive if he is given a compass and a map in the misty of nowhere. Sounds so blue eyes doesn’t he? Then I said one thing to him “ to be a perfectionist is to know and do something more great and logical that others which that portray your perfectionism. By accepting other ideas and combine it with your “so called and fucking great ideas’ makes you much more better than the 1st day you have been critiqued. Just don’t be so arrogant coz if u are too good people will not praise you for that rather than actively stab on ur back. The last word I gave to him is ‘how good u are and this makes u to proud of ur seft but then u are still working as a blue-collar then go to a mirror and analyze your self if you are really maximize the sense of ur brainy to the fullest.

During the New year Eve, i had these kind of junk foods as my meal. Sounds sad huh. Gosh, tetiba rasa bersalah terhadap diri sendiri sebab kena ambik ni as my dinner. Hitting to the trackmill le for the next day..These are one of Shakey's restorant products. I like the burger as the meat is juicy and mouth-watering to me yet the chicken is so unhealthy prepared (coz the colestrol layers are not that fried good enough. It was not that crispy!So evil to my diet plan)!

Ok, cut that crap. This year I want to do something which may be a bit different from last previous years

1.I want to have a sport car, at least for my this year birthday present.

2.I want to have great holidays with my parents abroad, perhaps during winter.

3.I hope I do still have strenght to do a PhD this coming June.

4.Lover Chaser , have a sporting ones ( and i try my best to be sporting) and I really want to commit ..ahahah.

5.I want to upgrade my knowledge by reading more and more books so I don’t feel that am so dumb when interact with people coz my current job need me to expend my communication discourse( hey, doesn’t mean that beforehand I dont like to read. Well, my reading menu covers wide spectrums namely it Education, development, Art, Technology, Economic, Tourism, Food, landscape, Crime and Politic, healthy and medicine, history, globalization but I am not interested to read whatever thing related to Investment or currency :D)

6.Work hard and smart.

7.More healthy, merry, joy and have a pleasant heart (be the flow to the people rather than follow the flow but if u have to follow his or her flow then do it with a smart strategy)
Be bounded with my lost, old and new friends regardless age, sex, status and race (read up for my Capricorn traits then they may give u a clue about what kind of person I am) .

8. Keep more fit and fit with a good diet plan( even now am a bit "occay" with half of Veg menu).
9. Living in a cool n peace place os i can spread more love than before..hehe..

Ok, that all for today.~missing someone ~ but then I try to keep this at a lower tone.

Till then, take care all…my love and peace will belong to u all
