I Romance: 24 June 2017

In the name of Allah, the All-Compassionate, the All-Merciful.

Dear Bee,

Here are a few easy-listening songs for you to relax to while you are recovering. And well, okay, our favourite song at the end of the list hehe.

Love always,

Bae xoxo

P.S.: If you guys haven’t noticed, I have been signing off with Allah’s names (there are 99 of them), some were mentioned in the third video.

I Record: Carnival of Rust by Poets of Fall (Smule Cover)

In the name of Allah, the All-Compassionate, the All-Merciful.

I miss singing and singing makes me feel better but my voice is absolutely shot because I’m ill.

Shucks.

I Ramble: 26 March 2017

In the name of Allah, the All-Compassionate, the All-Merciful.

So here we are and what have I accomplished for the past week? Only food poisoning. And now I have to get ready to get back to work tomorrow, which I am so totally mentally unprepared for.

But I’m going to face it like I always do, task by task. I have to stay on top of my discipline, whether I like it or not.

And well, I’m having a newfound sense of motivation to become more disciplined from an opportunity that has come up recently.

Le fiance and I met up with someone who is in the music industry yesterday and we got a lot of insights into it. Right now, things are in the balance but if he likes our compositions, he’d like to be our drummer. So we’ll see how things go. There have been people who replied to my post on SOFT but I’m not getting the band vibe from them. For jamming covers, yes, but I’m not sure if they’d dig multi-genre originals.

Regardless of whether he’d like to participate or not, I’m going to hone my skills. I need to improve my singing and brush up on my knowledge on music. At the same time, I should get back to my recorder, keyboard, guitar, and drumming. I think even though I can only play a little bit of each at the end of the day, it’d definitely help my musicality and musicianship.

I hope everyone has found motivation in March like I did. Let’s keep it going.

I Record: Made of Stone by Evanescence (Smule Cover)

In the name of Allah, the All-Compassionate, the All-Merciful.

Just wanted to know where my vocals are at now so I didn’t use any filters and I’m having a cold.

My own review is that I’m still not projecting my voice very well. However, I find that I’ve grown more comfortable with low and high notes. Still, the cold is definitely getting in the way of sustaining my notes.
