Have you ever sat in front of your pc and just stare at the white screen in front of you.. hoping upon hopes that an inspiration would hit for you to write about anything. Anything at all! Even stone sink for example!?

Well.. I’ve been staring at this white screen for like an hour now .. well not exactly because since I was so uninspired, I decided to pay my bills, do some filings and even updated my accounts spreadsheet.. lol!

Inspiration come to me now!!!.. hahahha.. oh well.. don’t forget to come by midnight my time for your Music Monday codes people.. Oh also anyone knows what’s going on over at KLCC? I get a clear view of that area from my apartment’s balcony! Woot!!

The last time I bought me a new pair of shoes was last year and if I recalled correctly, it was this month too! So I think a new pair of shoes are in order right?

And to justify my getting some juicy couture flats or heels, is the fact that for no reason or rhyme, the right heel of my one-year old shoe is worned out.. not from too much walking, mind you, but because each time I ride on the motorbike (though I’m not sure how this happened) the heel rested on the stupid exhaust and “burn” the heels. It’s a wonder that my own heels are not worned off.. lol!

Though my shoes don’t look as bad as TH’s shoes that looks like it’s breaking into two.. lol.. I still think I need a get a new pair and sooner is better than later for sure.

So.. yes.. I am in need of new shoes now.. anyone knows where I can get a good bargain?

I really owe Bill the greatest apology.

When he approached me for a new header for his blog over at Inside Hollywood News.. I was really pressed for time, trying to finished off Jackie’s blog makeover and finishing up a newsletter and some banners for my client. So I promised him I was going to get to it when I come home from Singapore and here it is.. Bill already put it up so check out at his site ok!

And remember if you fancy a new header, a new template, a new badge or just some coding tweaks.. contact me and we’ll talk ya :)

One thing I love about not being online is that I don’t feel guilty when I watch my dvds. I had this one ‘Music and Lyrics” for some time now and I never really gotten around to watching it simply because I got so many things going on when I’m online!

Anyway.. when I was back in SG I made a point of watching the movie and I absolutely adore it.. Let me rephrase that.. I ADORE AND LOVED IT! Can you belived I watched it everyday that I was in SG?! Both Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore were awesome actors and Hugh.. OMG Hugh.. he can really sing and jive.. lol!

I was amazed at his voice and he really pulled of the dancing scene as well.. can you tell.. I just adore him.. never did before.. but this movie made me change my mind.. lol!

I found out today from an article online that he actually did sing all the songs and play the instruments as well.. Kudos Hugh!! eheh.. And since I love the article so much.. I’m gonna put it right here so you guys can read it too…

If you think any of Hugh Grant’s answers in this article are serious, it’s because sarcasm and humor don’t always translate well in print.

Hugh Grant on His Pop Star Moves: Although Grant didn’t offer the media a sampling of his moves, he was happy to know people are definitely appreciating his wiggles and thrusts in Music and Lyrics. “I’m glad you liked them. It was misery for me. I don’t play the piano, I don’t sing, and I definitely don’t dance. They can teach you to sing a bit and the computer can put you in tune and they can teach you to play the piano, but nothing, nothing can make you move like a pop star if you haven’t got it in you.

I used to go to these choreography sessions… There’s a brilliant choreographer on the film who did all these big numbers and we just used to stand there looking at each other. He would put the music on and say, ‘Go, just go. Just do your own thing.’ And I would say, ‘I have no thing. There’s nothing to come out.’ And in the end I had to rely heavily on the makeup woman bringing me what looked like a 7-Up bottle but was in fact whiskey….”

The tight jeans also played a key role in Grant’s pop star transformation. “Actually, it helps a little bit. I must say when I got into my costume, I thought, ‘Yeah, quite sexy.’ Especially with those high heels.”

Preparing for Music and Lyrics: “I was doing piano and singing for probably two months before we started shooting and while we were shooting. I had a little piano in my trailer and I used to do it by myself at night. Singing that is… I would sing long into the night.

It’s a curious thing. It is one of those rare examples where practice does actually make you probably better, I’ve found. It’s all confidence, I’m sure you know. It’s weird. People just say, ‘Just go for it,’ and that’s the hard thing. You can’t just go for it if you’ve got no confidence. But this strange procedure where they record you and then fiddle it so it actually sounds pretty good… The more they do that, the more you think, ‘I can relax now because whatever happens, I’m going to end up sounding good,’ and then you start to sound good on your own.”

Don’t Look for Grant to Transition to Singing When He’s Done Acting: Barrymore says Grant sang a cappella and it sounded really good. In fact, Barrymore, who plays Grant’s onscreen love interest in Music and Lyrics, went as far as to say he sounded beautiful. However Grant himself says it’s all due to how his voice was finessed in the editing process.

“I heard a lot of the singing beforehand because you work for days and days to do these recordings. It’s not how I imagined it,” Grant said about watching the finished film for the first time. “I mean, you must sing every song about a thousand times and then they take one syllable that you might happen to have got vaguely right, and they stitch it together with another syllable. Literally, it’s that fine. Then they put it through the machine 1,600 different ways and tune you and put what they call ‘slap’ – which is sort of an echo effect, which makes you sound better. It’s unbelievable. By the time they finish doing that, and you’ve learned that you can do it, you actually do sing better anyway. You get more relaxed. You think, ‘They can fix this.’”

And Theatre’s Not in His Future Either: Singing and dancing in Music and Lyrics didn’t convince Grant he should sign up to star in a West End musical. “I’m not very good in the theatre,” admitted Grant. “I don’t like watching plays. I don’t like being in them very much. But I have learned to love the sound of my own singing voice.”

No Music, No Plays…: So how does Grant fill his free time since he doesn’t listen to music or take in an occasional play. “Oh, I don’t know,” answered Grant. “I sit around and moan. I play a bit of golf and I see my friends and read a book. Actually, I watch films.”

Grant did train in the theatre but he’s put it behind him now. “Yeah, I did a lot of plays, but to be really honest with you, I think doing a play is quite fun. It’s watching a play that is utter misery. That’s why I couldn’t really justify going on acting in the theatre because I just knew that these poor bastards paid a lot of money and were having a horrible time sitting out there watching. Let’s be honest. One time in 50 is actually fun in the theatre. The other 49 times you’re thinking, ‘Bring on my gin and tonic in the intermission.’”

The Attraction of Working Opposite Drew Barrymore: “Drew was the perfect person for this thing. I sat down with Mark [Lawrence, writer/director] and we watched every romantic comedienne working at the moment, and it was quite clear it had to be Drew. She’s got incredible charm… She’s not a charming person in real life, charming on the screen [said in a joking manner]. No, she’s just perfect, perfect for the part, and very kind and supportive to an extremely grumpy, difficult actor.”

Grant Doesn’t Play Favorites: Because he doesn’t have any when it comes to bands and songs. “It’s a very short answer: I’m a fraud and a charlatan in this film, because I have no interest in music. I never have had. I don’t have any records. I never play music, so it’s very difficult for me to tell you my favorite song. Sorry.”

In Keeping with the Film’s Valentine’s Day Release: Asked if he really gets into Valentine’s Day Grant joked, “Yeah, I take it extremely seriously. If I don’t get a lot of cards and things, I get crabby. I like a lot of attention. At school there was a system where you put things in letter boxes, which was weird because it was an all boys’ school (laughing).”

This is the version that Hugh sang with the “hot” singer Cora in her concert and the one below is the demo version where we hear he sings with Drew.. both are awesome.. so take a listen ya!

I’m afraid MNG wasn’t anywhere in sight so surfing at home was totally out of the question and this cyber cafe does not have the best or the fastest machine.. I will check to see if I can bring Miss Fly next time and hook up to their network.. otherwise.. this may be the only time you see me online here.. :(

Whatever it is.. am having a grand time with mommy here. Eating and shopping and shopping and eating.. lol! I’m sure when I get back to KL, I really got to start looking at all the best diet pills that is available out in the market right now. LOL!!

Just got my ticket online and will be back to KL on Sunday.. so if I don’t see you guys before that.. Selamat Berpuasa to all my Muslim friends!!

Jackie aka Shinade already has a lovely blog but we all crave for changes sometimes and change is always good.. She approached me about a week ago for a blog makeover but as I still had some backlog I couldn’t take up the job immediately.

Jackie wanted a fast loading template with several columns as a footer and with the beautiful header that she did and with a little tweaking from yours truly, we came up with this lovely and exquisite creation :)

What do you guys think? Just click on the image and visit Jackie and tell me what you think.
