I read all the comments that are left on my posts. I might not reply, but I really do, and for the most part, they’re really interesting to read and I’m glad that what I write can compel you to share your opinion. I write a lot on the topic of emotions and relationships and I’ve noticed that a large portion of the comments are left by females. One can assume that a lot of ppl who follow me are girls, or only girls take the time to read & and write comments, and while those explanations to have merit, I think it’s something else…

Women are tougher than men. Yes, both physically and emotionally. This conclusion comes from observing my mother (and many other mothers of their immigrant generation), and by looking at the girls who’ve shaped my personal life. Reading some…

Lu Xiao Yu (Secret OST- Jay Chou)

It’s been a while!

I’ve been learning Lu Xiao Yu (Rain) from Jay Chou’s movie “Secret”.

Saw the movie with my sis 7 years ago, wow time surely flies. There are many great pieces in that film, most famous is the “Time Travel” piece.

I’ve never paid attention to Lu Xiao Yu before until I heard PianoMike play it two weeks ago.

I’m just mesmerized by the romantic and solemn melody and decided to share. 🙂

Déjà Vu, has this happened to you?

Okay, so I’m re writing my previous entry, it didn’t get published. It’s about déjà Vu and I’m curious as to what it is, if people really have it, how can one remove it or enhance it.

I know how I sound like, I’ve had numerous occasions of deja Vu since I was a small child, I encountered the word when I watched the movie “The Matrix” (1999) the scene where Neo and his troop were inside the building and as he was about to climb the stairs he saw a black cat pass by the door and then saw it again when he looked back at the door. He uttered “déjà Vu”.

According to: shantitechnology (dot)com

Deja Vu refers to those odd and usually rare moments whem present feels like the past. Its a hard experience to interpret. Some people search their memories for dreams that might have been like the present. Others think that the experience is what happens when things from past lives emerge in this one. Both notions are impossible to prove, disprove, or (until recently), investigate. The belief that its about past lives is a matter of faith. The idea that it has to do with dreams is less a matter of faith – only a few people claim to recall past lives, but almost everybody remembers some of their dreams. Some recall a lot of them. The theory of reincarnation that is most consistent with modern brain science (Algorithmic Reincarnation) predicts that no memories are passed from one life to the next. What is transferred is a set of signals that reflect states of consciousness. Memories don’t need to go along.

Memories are state-specific. We can have experiences in one state of consciousness (like when we are drunk, for example) that we cannot remember at all when we are in another. States of consciousness provide a much more direct way for someone to select how they will behave than remembering past behaviors and comparing them to present possibilities.

There is a fly in the ointment with dreams as well. Both dreams and deja vu experiences happen in non-normal states of consciousness. Most altered states are are a fertile ground for confabulations. This means that in the moment when someone is experiencing deja vu, its easier for them to create a false memory than it would be normally. In fact, during moments of deja vu , one’s consciousness has unusually direct access to long-term memories, and the brain processes that allow us to retrieve them.

I’ve always brushed off these occurrences, I’ve had that feeling and memories of things happening again, more than once in my life. But they were small things, not too important like the lottery numbers or test answers, just some things like a conversation happening in a location I’ve never been to before, eating a meal with a certain mix of people and an event or small conversation happening during a meal. Sometimes I see faceless people/person then the ‘present time’ comes and I already met the person and his face filled in the blank.

Things like that.

It used to be I remember the scene and experience deja Vu as the event happens again and I tell myself ‘I’ve seen this happen before’ then shrug it off. But lately, it happens sooner.

Nothing big.

Like last week I ordered an smoothie blender online for my workout sessions, because the website had a sale last week, just today I remember telling my sister a few week or a month ago that i swear I will never ever order electronic online.

Why? Because I had such a vivid dream more than a month ago that I’d receive a defective electronic product from my online order and wouldn’t get a refund for the product.

But I forgot about the dream until today when this morning I received my smoothie maker and when I used it it wouldn’t turn on! It was a bummer.

In my dream I was having an argument with the people from the company and they were telling me that they can’t refund my money because I signed the ‘return form’ incorrectly. More specifically, in the “reason for return” section, instead of putting the exact date, I placed: I received the product today and returning it today, but I was delayed in sending it and sent it the day after. That was their reason.

The first half of the dream happened earlier, the second half, I’m wishing wouldn’t come true.

So back to déjà Vu, has it happened to you because I’ve had it constantly happening to me since before I was a teenager, involving little incidents with my life…

The electronic item thing was creeping me out so I finally wrote an entry about it.

Have you experience déjà Vu before? How do I remove it or enhance it?

I’ve read articles about it and some said it may be hallucination, for some, maybe.

I don’t smoke, haven’t tried smoking cigarette, I haven’t taken unprescribed drugs in my life, I’m a healthy ladeeeh, and I know this article is so weird but I’d love to hear about your experiences and thoughts.

Xoxoxo

The heavenly duo that is “Akdong Musician”

It is unlikely for me to review musicians, I’ll make an exception for this unlikely duo who moved me into writing about them.

The duo is called Akdong Musician (AkMu)

image

So, I was tuning in to MCountdown on MNET while browsing my smartphone. I wasnt really paying attention. It was the EXO comeback episode, but the show was dull, no new sound, artists were just re-making tunes from past popular tracks from hit idols so it was pretty bland. I’m not gonna sugarcoat things, it is what it is.

Then while on tumblr I heard the MC introduce the next performers and a smooth rap came next.

The song that got me was “200%”. The rapper had that smooth playful tone then when the girl’s voice came I was like: who are they???

They’re Akdong Musician, a duo from a contest who were signed by YG Entertainment. There are a million golden voices in the world but this girl is freaking amazing! I want to share her voice even if that sounded totally weird.

Don’t care for YG. I’m a fan of jpop, kpop, french music and western. I’m tellin you guys these two are extra special.

Akdong Musician album is jam packed!

They are unconventional yet their music is heavenly which makes them special. A mix of rap and r&b/pop yet something else.

All the songs in their Album displays lightness and color yet emotions and smoothness.

On stage they aren’t the kind who will play cute and compensate for lack of talent. Your eyes and ears will love them. Listening to them is lik listening to musical instruments being played perfectly.

Check them out. No matter if you’re a teenager or grandparents of teenagers you’ll love them.

They’re no hot and sexy girl groups or pheromone dynamites sexual hunks, but if you’re into quality, original music, you’ll love them.
