No Sound of Music

posted by constance

Exactly like what my post title says. Usually, I do enjoy music or songs from soundtracks like The Sound of Music and My Fair Lady. I am one who enjoy musical dramas and any kind of movie that has clips of music or a song in them. Just like Enchanted, it has become a family favourite and we can just watch it over and over again and sing along. We certainly enjoy the songs and dances in them. But where can we find other types of musical dramas or shows that has gorgeous bass tunes? Seldom do I get to watch such.. Perhaps those British types? With British bands? But mostly they are on guitar or electric guitar and not much of Bass strings in them. Electric Dreams? Still looking around.

Creepy, eh? Well, that’s my little girl trying out her Halloween outfit. She’s bound for a party, with Halloween coming up and she wants to be on her best..I mean ugliest dress-up outfit. Horror of all horrors, she picked this mask with exposed brains and all that gory blood. Thank God it is as plastic as it looks… Her sis? Nah.. she prefer something safer, like this metalic mask because she doesn’t feel nice in a horror costume…

Initially she just wanted to be armed with a broom or just a ‘devil’s’ fork but Little One said it’s no fun… hahahah well, we’ll see who gets their scared first. I hope they don’t get nightmares thereafter.. It’s ok to wear a horror or gory outfit but it is the rest of the party goers that will scare the shit out of each other…

Get prepared. Have some guts or spill some out!

Different Characters of a Drink

posted by constance

How do you like your coffee? I like coffee. Or I simply LOVE to drink it. When I was younger, I like them extra strong but creamy. And way before that, I only drank Black Coffee in the mornings. It was like an addiction to me as I hardly had time to taste the coffee, except than to just drink it bottoms up.

Now that all that white coffee is in, I shop for the brand Kings for it’s thick and creamy White Coffee.
But at home, sometimes I like it Black and Mild, just the way some people like their cigar.

One thing about coffee is that it does nothing for my eldest and myself. There are also so many different types of coffee, like I must have it Black when I eat my wanton noodle.
