Ford Fiesta




Went for Ford Fiesta test drive last Sunday very early in the morning.
Jane and I were supposed to test drive Ford Fiesta with our readers.
Most of my readers "flew airplane", such a sad case for me.
It's ok, most importantly, I got to test drive the new Ford Fiesta 1.0L Ecoboost.




I was explained about the features of this car.
The new Ford Fiesta 1.0L Ecoboost is powered by the triple award winning
International Engine of the Year (2012, 2013, 2014) which comprises of
a 3 cylinder-turbo charged engine paired with the Powershift® six speed automatic transmission.
I was also told that it is the smallest yet most powerful engine in its category.
Very interesting...
Well, I have to try it for my own before I can judge.





The famous Push Start button.
Tried it, you just need to have the key with you, step on the brake and press the start button.
Tadahhhhhh, engine starts...




Tried the voice command too.
 The new Ford Fiesta 1.0L Ecoboost boasts upgraded smart technologies,
including the hands-free in-car connectivity system Ford SYNC™. 
Ford SYNC enables drivers to answer calls and select music from 
devices connected via Bluetooth or USB. 
 
We tried listening to text messages and calls using voice commands, so cool.





Nobody should live without music, haha.
This is a must-have for me!





 Loving the leather seats, matching with my leather slip-ons :)
Btw, so spacious at the back.





Let's roll.
My turn to go first.






To be honest, I DID NOT expect such power from a hatchback.
I stepped on the accelerator and I was really surprised with the speed and acceleration.
It picked up so fast.

I told everyone single one who test-drove this car to slightly accelerate.
Everyone single one gave the same reaction "woah..."
I'm serious.






Jane's turn to drive me.
We went for a smooth rideeeeeeeeee.







Thanks for the experience, Ford.
Peace out!

Music Talk: Coming Up For Air, Kodaline





Music talk again!
Kodaline's new album - Coming Up For Air.

I waited so long for their second album.
Finally.
I was very occupied before Chinese New Year.
I really had no time for myself.
I used to do album shopping a lot, always Rock Corner, I linger, lol.
So, I called up to reserve two albums, one for me, one for Jane, of course.
Pretty efficient, I got them on the exact day as the UK release.
So happened that Jane and I had to go a meeting at Publika.
We actually stopped by Gardens just to get the albums.
I ran all the way up, panting, gasping for air.
"I, I, called... to reserve... two, two Kodaline's albums under the name..Daphne..."
Lol, the staff was like "ohhhhh, you...!!!"
Still panting as I was paying.
She was like "you ran all the way up?"
"Yeh, I'm rushing."
"You're a big fan of Kodaline's music, this album has only been released today."
"Oh yeh, quite a big fan, yeh I know, that's why I have to get it today!"
"I still remember when you got their first album."
"Wao, you remember me? Yes, I got it here!"
"I give you discount!"

Hahahahaha, niceeeeeeeeeee...
I normally get my albums at Rock Corner.
I go to the one in Bangsar Village a lot because the owner gives me great discount :x
The one in Gardens offers around 5% discount?
If you have a CIMB card, go to the one in KLCC because you get 10%.
:D :D :D :D :D you're welcome.



Back to music talk.
The first single released was "Honest".
I thought it was going a little too "mainstream" or "pop".
Just like how Coldplay went from indie to pop :(
I was so scared that they might lose the Kodaline essence in their music.
They didn't disappoint, Kodaline is still Kodaline.
I think the second single released was "Unclear".
I love "Unclear".

Doesn't 1:04min give you goosebumps?
Man, I get the chills.





 I guess music people are greedy, they want to try new stuff.
I was quite surprised when I listened to "Human Again".
Compare to the first album "In A Perfect World", "Coming Up For Air" is more upbeat.

New music video-The One

"You make my whole world feel so right when it's wrong.
That's how I know that you are the one."







Anyway, if I were to pick a favourite off this album...
I really really really love this one - "Love Will Set You Free".
Love the melody, love the song arrangement, love the harmonization.
Lyrics, touching and encouraging.
I was touched by this line-
"The more I live, the more I know, I’ve got to live without.
This ain’t no sad song, life has to go on."
SPOT ON!
 That's what music is supposed to do, touch your heart!
Enjoy it here.




Have fun replaying.
Spread the good music out there.

Diary: The Self Sabotaging







Busy working as usual, sick since day one of Chinese New Year.
Stubborn, so stubborn, body seems to be shutting down today, so I left work.
Got home and watched the Academy Awards, man, loved it!
So many great movies I want to watch.
A friend brought me to the movie last week.
I last went for a movie 4-5months ago, monthsssss ago, can't even believe it myself, lol.
It felt awesome just going for a movie.
I watched Kingsman, fantastic movie.
MANNERS MAKETH MAN. Hell yeah. So cool.






Anyway, I always want to talk about this but I guess I only found the courage to, today.
 Why self sabotaging what self sabotaging?
Self imposed mental torture or even physically, I guess, like a self ruination, self destruction.
I'm not good at vocabularies, guess that's one of the reasons why I didn't blog this earlier.
Not sure if I can express it well.

You know sometimes people have something so good that they don't appreciate?
You know sometimes people don't even realize what great things they have.
They tend to give it all away? They tend to screw it up on purpose? 
This is random but I can't concentrate because The Last Song is showing on TV.
It's sad cause Ronnie's dad is dying.




He died.




T_T



I've been taking alcohol a lot lately.
I confess. Lol.
Hard to expect a tiny person like me who can drink huh.

I laughed at my sister who had pimples all over her back.
I was like haha I will never get pimples on my back.
Poof. Karma.
I had fever but I still drank a lot.
Plus you know what, I hardly get off days, so I tried to "fully utilize" them.
I'm having pimples all over my back now, super heaty body.
Wish I wasn't this "hot" but that gorgeous "hot".
I went back to work, I looked down and blood dripped.
I was like... shieeeet.
My nose bled pretty badly.

Then, I realized that I have to stop.
Well, at least for a while.





I sabotage myself.
I have many good things in life.
I know that so well, I know, I'm thankful for everyday.
I'm grateful for the people around me.
I always tell them so and I show my appreciation to them everyday.
I'm happy yet I still do stupid things, on purpose, things that are bad to myself.
There's this one thing that I'm still holding on, I can't seem to find a way to let it go.
I have so many good things in life but I lost that one thing I hold dearly.
That one thing. I lost it. I don't have it.
I should've tried harder, I shouldn't have given up.
I tend to disregard the good things for that one thing, pig-headed.
I don't know, still learning, still learning to appreciate.



I have a friend.
He met this girl, well brought up, well mannered, smart, pretty, kind.
They got together, they were happy.
I guess sometimes people feel that things are too good to be true.
Here comes the self sabotaging.
He thinks she's going to cheat on him.
He thinks that relationship starts off well and it will always go down hill.
He thinks she's going to leave him for other better men.
Temptations, temptations are all out there.
Girls want him, girls love him, he's a charmer.
There are many great girls out there, it's true but... no idea.
(Maybe he wanted someone better? I don't know but he screwed this up and regretted it.)
He cheated.
He thought she'd never find out, oh well..
I was like "all you had to do was to appreciate and cherish her, you prick", that simple.
I know, the insecurities kick in sometimes.
I know, the temptations out there are very very very attracting.
Things get complicated but things WERE simple, things are simple.
All he had to do was to appreciate her.
Well, you can't clap with one hand, BOTH of them should cherish each other.
Sometimes people don't see what's good JUST RIGHT in front of them.
People always overlook things.
He regrets it now but I guess it's too late?
I wish he had some balls to admit his fault and make things work.
At least, try? I don't know. He should...



When my friends tell me about their "morally wrong ideas".
I always tell them "don't sabotage yourself, don't do it", lol.
Really, just don't sabotage yourself, you have something good.
If you make up your mind and you really want to, do it, but do it the morally right way.

Now I feel dumb, I don't know if you guys understood what I'm trying to say here.





Saw this very interesting thing today.
A couple decided to commit suicide after going through a really hard time.
So they decided to jump off a building.
When they got to the top, they counted to 3 before jumping.
The woman jumped but the man stayed.
He watched her fall for 8 seconds then saw her pulled a parachute.
Who betrayed who?

Don't scroll.
Stop right there.
Think about your answer first, then continue reading.







What do I think?
I think the husband betrayed his wife.
I don't know, I hope I don't seem or sound sexist.
It's a female's nature, women would do everything for their men.
They would do everything for love.
Wisely or unwisely, they do shiet for their partner.
We give, we are giving, it's in our nature.



Wife would do anything, everything for husband.
She would jump with him, she would die with him.
That's why she jumped BUT
she got a backup plan - the parachute OR she knew best that her husband wouldn't jump.
Who knows you best? Your partner. Your partner should know you best.

For instance.
Wife knows husband cheats.
Wife knows husband lies.
 Wife knows best but she tries to take it in, stick with it.
Wife doesn't leave husband, stays with husband.
She knows best that he cheats but she goes through it with him anyway.
She has that hope.


If husband jumped with her, she wouldn't have pulled that parachute.
She would die with him.



BAM!





Strange.
Love is a strange thing, life is a strange thing.
Everyday you get inspired, everyday you learn something new.
  I don't know?
Don't sabotage yourself?
Pull that parachute or just don't jump.

Music Talk: Happy Birthday, Ed





Finally have the time to blog!!!
Only had to work half day today.
Blogged this half way yesterday but didn't have the time to finish the post.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ED SHEERAN!
Well, it's still his birthday at UK/US time.





What's new on Ed Sheeran's music?
I knew it! I knew this could be possible.
I probably talked about it before.
Remember Glastonbury 2014? Anybody watch it?
Errr ma gawd, Glastonbury, Coachella, Pinkpop, Laneway, Tomorrowland are my dreams!
So many dreams!
The top one is happening, it is to see Ed Sheeran perform live in London.
It's even better now that he's coming to KL!
I'll still go to London for him in the future (:

So, I was watching all Glastonbury performances.
Ed Sheeran joined Rudimental's set and played the song "Bloodstream" together.
I like the original version but this version is really cool too.
It's something different.

Then, one night before I went to bed.
I saw this on Ed's Facebook, new single, Bloodstream ft Rudimental.
Have a listen.



I know everyone is as excited as I am to see Ed Sheeran in Malaysia.
Ahhhh, I can't wait.
Yup, I've already gotten my tickets, I bought them last November.
Yes, tickets are all sold out!
Obviously, certainly, unquestionably, sold out shows, all day err day!
I am so proud, so so proud.
When people go like "the tickets are all sold out!", I'm like "woohoo, I bought last November!" (:







So many of you asked me for free tickets.
I wish I can do wonder like this.
Hotlink is doing this #EdEverywhere contest though.
Do you want the tickets?
DO YOU REALLY WANT THEM?
Do you want them like this spider-man?
Man, this fan got guts...!!!
I hope I see him at Ed Sheeran's concert but he covered his face with the mask =,=
 


Anyway...
Here's the link to everything you need to know:
 
1. Download Hotlink Red App.

Everyone is desperate for Ed Sheeran's concert ticket.
As a fan, I am so proud and I am so happy.
I just can't wait, can't wait to watch him perform live.
16th March, it's getting closer!!!!!!!!!!!!
What should I wear? I'm thinking what to wear, hahaha!


Happy birthday again, Ed!
His birthday is on the 17th, it's 17th in the UK now!
 Keep believing in music and making great music!
I'll always be a fan.
