Despacito Fever!


Despacito..
Luis Fonsi - Despacito ft. Daddy Yankee
If you love to dance, this is a great music to dance with a partner and even friends! :D
Beautiful and sensual music.
I always love Spanish songs ;)

Despacito Spanish Lyric

Ay
Fonsi
DY
Oh
Oh no, oh no
Oh yeah
Diridiri, dirididi Daddy
Go

Sí, sabes que ya llevo un rato mirándote
Tengo que bailar contigo hoy (DY)
Vi que tu mirada ya estaba llamándome
Muéstrame el camino que yo voy (Oh)

Tú, tú eres el imán y yo soy el metal
Me voy acercando y voy armando el plan

Solo con pensarlo se acelera el pulso (Oh yeah)
Ya, ya me está gustando más de lo normal
Todos mis sentidos van pidiendo más
Esto hay que tomarlo sin ningún apuro

Despacito
Quiero respirar tu cuello despacito
Deja que te diga cosas al oído
Para que te acuerdes si no estás conmigo

Despacito
Quiero desnudarte a besos despacito
Firmo en las paredes de tu laberinto
Y hacer de tu cuerpo todo un manuscrito (sube, sube, sube)
(Sube, sube)

Quiero ver bailar tu pelo
Quiero ser tu ritmo
Que le enseñes a mi boca
Tus lugares favoritos (favoritos, favoritos baby)

Déjame sobrepasar tus zonas de peligro
Hasta provocar tus gritos
Y que olvides tu apellido (Diridiri, dirididi Daddy)

(DY) Si te pido un beso ven dámelo
Yo sé que estás pensándolo
Llevo tiempo intentándolo
Mami, esto es dando y dándolo
Sabes que tu corazón conmigo te hace bom, bom
Sabes que esa beba está buscando de mi bom, bom
Ven prueba de mi boca para ver cómo te sabe
Quiero, quiero, quiero ver cuánto amor a ti te cabe
Yo no tengo prisa, yo me quiero dar el viaje
Empecemos lento, después salvaje

Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito
Nos vamos pegando poquito a poquito
Cuando tú me besas con esa destreza
Veo que eres malicia con delicadeza

Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito
Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito
Y es que esa belleza es un rompecabezas
Pero pa montarlo aquí tengo la pieza

Despacito
Quiero respirar tu cuello despacito
Deja que te diga cosas al oído
Para que te acuerdes si no estás conmigo

Despacito
Quiero desnudarte a besos despacito
Firmo en las paredes de tu laberinto
Y hacer de tu cuerpo todo un manuscrito (sube, sube, sube)
(Sube, sube)

Quiero ver bailar tu pelo
Quiero ser tu ritmo
Que le enseñes a mi boca
Tus lugares favoritos (favoritos, favoritos baby)

Déjame sobrepasar tus zonas de peligro
Hasta provocar tus gritos
Y que olvides tu apellido

Despacito
Vamos a hacerlo en una playa en Puerto Rico
Hasta que las olas griten "¡ay, bendito!"
Para que mi sello se quede contigo

Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito
Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito
Que le enseñes a mi boca
Tus lugares favoritos (favoritos, favoritos baby)

Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito
Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito
Hasta provocar tus gritos
Y que olvides tu apellido (DY)
Despacito


Justin Bieber - "Despacito" ft. Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee

A mix of English and Spanish. Perfect :)

Despacito (Remix) Lyric

Into: Justin Bieber
Coming over in my direction
So thankful for that, it's such a blessin', yeah
Turn every situation into heaven, yeah
Oh-oh, you are
My sunrise on the darkest day
Got me feelin' some kind of way
Make me wanna savor every moment slowly, slowly
Yout fit me tailor-made, love how you put it on
Got the only key, know how to turn it on
The way you nibble on my ear, the only words I wanna hear
Baby, take it slow so we can last long

The rest is the same as above (Spanish lyric)


Attention & Despacito Mashup (English Spanish Cover) Charlie Puth, Justin Bieber, Luis Fonsi
If you love the song, Attention and Despacito, this is a fantastic mashup.

Luis Fonsi - Despacito (Malay Version - Incognito) 2017
Classic, funny Malay version. They have nice voice too.

Luis Fonsi - Despacito (Malay Female Version ) 2017
I guess this is a reply version to the Male Malay version. I really love the music remake with the violin effect!

Despacito - Daddy Yankee & Luis Fonsi ft Justin Bieber (cover)
A cover by Shahida Supian. I like her voice. No editing, just pure good voice.

Parodi Despacito (Edisi Ramadhan) - W/NSG
How to react to this - have a good laugh (este segelas) while sing with your friends!

Enjoy Despacito! :D
Luv,

A Globetrotter’s Guide to Social Etiquettes from Around the World


People are generally tolerant and accepting of foreign visitors but it would serve you well to always practice good manners and social etiquettes so as not to offend anyone. Etiquette differs from each culture and country. In general, if you are well mannered, tolerant and respectful, your travels will be pleasant and easy. Here is a list of international etiquettes from around the world to keep so when you go travelling next, you can be mindful of local mannerisms and make the best of your trip.


Japan

Do you know that you must never stick your chopsticks upright in your rice? Sticking them upright in a bowl of rice is even worse. This is because during funerals in Japan, the rice bowl of the deceased is placed before their coffin with the chopsticks upright in the rice. If you need to stop between bites, it’s best to place your chopsticks together right in front of you, parallel to the edge of the table.

China

In China, it may be considered bad manners to clean your plate at the dinner table as it can be construed that you don’t have enough food and you are still hungry. It is also bad luck to flip a whole fish once you have finished one side. The phrase is called “dao yue” which means “to flip the fish is like saying the fisherman’s boat is going to capsize,” or simply bad luck. The most superstitious won’t even attempt to eat the bottom part of the fish.

Greece

Alternatively, in a Greek family home, you must eat everything that is on your plate. Leaving food on your plate could be taken as insult as the hostess may think you don’t like the food.

Middle East & India

For all the lefties in the world, please take note that it considered rude to pass items with your left hand in India. Especially in South India, you should not even touch your plate with your left hand while eating, as the left hand is associated with cleaning yourself in the toilet. It is also considered a gross indecency in Iran to eat with your left hand. If you are having coffee with the Bedouins in the Middle East, shake the cup at the end. A Bedouin will continuously refresh your cup unless you tilt it two or three times before handing it back.

France

It’s best to learn a few greetings in French to make yourself comfortable with the locals. They appreciate being people who are bien eleve (well brought up or well mannered). Remember that you must not eat bread as an appetizer before the meal. It has to be eaten as an accompaniment to your food, particularly with the cheese course at the end of the meal. Also, did you know it is preferred that you place your bread directly on the table and not on a plate?

Germany

When in Germany, it’s vital to be appropriately dressed for every occasion. This cannot be stressed enough. You express your respect not only for the occasion but the guests, the surroundings and especially the host or hostess.

Italy

Unless it is explicitly offered, don’t ask for Parmesan cheese for your pizza. It’s a culinary sin; like putting sawdust on expensive caviar. Many dishes in Italy aren’t meant for Parmesan. For example, in Rome, the traditional cheese is Pecorino. Just remember, if it’s not offered, don’t ask. When in Rome, do as the Romans do.

Chile

Don’t eat anything with your hands, even fries. In Chile, manners are a little more formal than other South American countries. Even though it might seem more practical to pick up certain foods with your hands, don’t do it. Just use your fork.

Korea

If someone older to you offers you a drink, lift your glass to receive the pour with both hands. Then turn your head away and take a discreet sip. It is a sign of respect for elders and an extremely important tenet of Korean culture. Also, don’t start eating until the oldest gentleman has done so and don’t leave the table until he is finished.

Russia

The holy grail of spirits in Russia is of course, vodka. This beverage must always be drunk neat – not even with ice. Adding any form of liquid is seen as polluting the drink’s purity, unless it’s Yorsh. Yorsh is a formidable concoction of vodka and beer. Most important of all, don’t ever turn down a drink. Offering someone a drink is a sign of trust and friendship. Even if it’s 9am, it’s a good idea to take the drink.

An overarching etiquette that transcends borders is international driving etiquette. While the the do’s and don’ts still differ depending on the country you’re in, it's important that you get acquainted with the primary driving rules of the country you’re visiting before hand - i.e. identifying the correct driving lane to be in. In the event of an accident with another vehicle, a standard social etiquette would be to greet and pacify the other driver, and to exchange car insurance details. Exactly why it’s important to be sure that you have a comprehensive personal travel insurance plan to keep you safe abroad, click here for more details.

Travel Bucket List: 10 Places to See Before you Die


Everyone needs a travel bucket list. Let’s call it the “Travel the World” list. It can be daunting to decide what goes on that list, as there is such a big, beautiful world out there with so much to see. With so many international destinations, natural wonders and man-made masterpieces, the choices are infinite in the course of a lifetime. Here is a narrowed down list of 10 breathtaking places to see before you kick the bucket. Pick one or pick them all – you can’t go wrong. This is your ultimate travel itinerary that will take you on a journey of a lifetime. From the Seven Wonders of the World to tropical paradises, this will certainly give you ideas for planning your next holiday.

1.     Cairo, Egypt

Your first stop here should be at one of the 7 wonders of the world, the only surviving ancient wonder, the Great Pyramid of Giza. It is 230.4 meters wide at its base, 146.5 meters tall and was built between 2584 BC and 2561 BC. Giza is usually a stop on the Cairo-Luxor-Aswan trip along the Nile River and the pyramids, temples and tombs are a spectacular sight.

Basílica de San Pedro y Columnata de Bernini:

2.     Rome, Italy

This epic city was certainly not built in a day. Founded in 753 BC, the Eternal City is one of the oldest occupied cities in Europe and widely regarded as the birthplace of Western civilization. It is the embodiment of Renaissance art and religious opulence. Be sure to visit the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel and the Coliseum. As they say, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do,” and practice the perfected “il dolce far niente”, the sweet art of idleness. Take a stroll down the beguiling piazza and have a great feast at the trattorias or enoctecas. Viva Roma!

Interior of Taj Mahal: India's beautiful Taj Mahal at sunrise #India:

3.     Agra, India

All for the honor of love, the awe-inspiring Taj Mahal is a striking white marble mausoleum built by Emperor Shah Jahan in the mid 1600s. It was used to house the tomb of his favorite wife Mumtaz, a Persian princess. The interior is even more stunning than the exterior, if that is even possible. Inside you will see the world’s finest example of the Mughal style which an elegant combination of Persian, Islamic and Indian architecture.

It's over 12,000 miles long, thousands of years old, and can be seen from space—no wonder the Great Wall nabbed a spot on this list.:

4.     Huairou, China

Undoubtedly, one the most iconic man-made structures on Earth, the Great Wall of China is absolutely incredible. Do you know that it is not one continuous wall but a series of shorter walls spanning more than 5,500 miles in its entirety? The wall was originally built to keep out nomads and invaders but today it serves as amazing vantage points as it winds along the crests of hills. Try hiking the Jinshanling Great Wall, which is located 2 and half hours away from Beijing. Acclaimed as the best-preserved section along with its stunning views of the rugged landscape, it is any photographer’s dream.

The Great Barrier Reef, Australia - one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World One of the stops on our Big trip http://www.tipsfortravellers.com/bigtrip2014:

5.     Queensland, Australia

The colors that you will find in the Great Barrier Reef are otherworldly. It is more than 1,400 miles long and located in the Coral Sea off the coast of Queensland. Dubbed the Blue Outback, it is also the largest coral reef system on the planet. This World Heritage site is a protected marine park that comprises of 900 islands and 3,000 individual reefs. If that is already not dizzying enough, get this – there are 5,000 species of mollusk, 1,500 fish species, 400 species of coral, 215 bird species, 125 species of shark, stingray, skates and chimaera, 30 species of dolphins, whales and porpoises. Crikey!


Serengeti National Park | UNESCO-gforpcrossing: Tanzania - Serengeti National…:

6.     Tanzania

If you love wildlife this next location is an absolute must in your travel bucket list. Experiencing the Great Migration is a dream come true. It’s remarkably grand to witness 1.5 million wildebeests, accompanied by 400,000 gazelles and 200,000 zebras move in ordered chaos through the beautiful Serengeti ecosystem. These astounding animals move from the northern hills to the southern plains for short rains in October and November and then back north after the long rains from April to June. These will be the best times to go on a safari to the Serengeti National Park, which has the highest concentration on large mammals on the planet, especially lions. Get a safari guide so that you don’t miss glimpses of the Big Five – African elephants, Cape buffaloes, lions, leopards and rhinoceros.


Rio de Janeiro, Brazil  The 50 Most Beautiful Cities in the World - Condé Nast Traveler:

7.     Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The exuberant spirit of the people of Rio de Janeiro is evident all year around. It is known as the Cidade Maravilhosa (Marvelous City) for a reason. It has more than 20 beaches and many magnificent landmarks, including the legendary Christ the Redeemer statue that overlooks the city. With the Guanabara Bay against the rugged backdrop of densely forested mountains, get ready for one of the most stunning settings in the world.


Machu Picchu's panoramic views and intricate (and a tad mysterious) stone walls more than validate the site's worldwide fame.:

8.     Machu Picchu, Peru

The reason this Incan citadel is called the Lost City of the Incas is because its location is so remote. Perched on the edge of a mountain high in the Andes and hidden from ravaging conquistadors until it was found in 1911, its untouched wonder is astounding on many levels. Its fascinating history is worth the challenging one-hour walk up to the summit of Wayna Picchu, soaring 1,100 feet above Machu Picchu. It believed to be the former residence of the Inca High Priest and only 400 people are permitted on Wayna Picchu each day.


Petra, Jordan. I probably won't be traveling in the Middle East anytime soon, but I can still dream:

9.     Petra, Jordan

Petra means “rock” in Greek and is one of Jordan’s most popular spots. The city is a marvel of rock-cut architecture and appears to spring from the very cliffs that surround it. Until 1812, this mysterious city did not appear on Western maps. Today, you can stroll down its beautiful boulevards and explore its fascinating tombs and archaeological sites.


Ride on a tortoise back in the Galapagos Islands:

10. Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

This World Heritage Site is a nature lover's paradise. The untouched splendor and wealth of unique species, like the giant tortoise, make it unforgettable. Located 575 miles off the coast of Ecuador, the Galapagos archipelago and its surrounding waters are a national park and biological marine preserve. Take a relaxing cruise that offers multi-island tours that will simply enthrall you.


With these exciting travel plans, don’t forget to keep you and your loved ones safe by purchasing reliable travel insurance. It is absolutely vital to ensure peace of mind on your amazing journey. AIG Travel Insurance has a comprehensive plan that will “jaga” you and your family through any travel mishap.

Puisi Kelip-kelip


Image may contain: night


Cinta yang datang padaku kini
Bukan hanya sekadar datang dan pergi
Malah ia tetap menghantui
Di dalam minda dan sanubari
*
Selamat malam putera yang akan beradu
Kerana kau senantiasa menunggu
Kedatanganku di alam mimpimu
Kerana aku puteri bidadari impianmu
*
Kerdipan kudus di persada iman
Tipis jiwanya mekar amalnya
Terseksa rohani meratapi diri
Demikianlah jasad meniti hari

Kamu


Image may contain: bedroom and indoor

Perasaan yang membuahkan ketegangan
Emosi di landasan kehalusan
Gigi berketaran di penghujung keduniaan
Bibir bertemu terasa kelambaian kecintaan
Jasad, jiwa terhanyut dalam kedamaian
Indahmu ku temukan rasa keindahan
Kehangatan cinta tak kan ku lepaskan
Kita, dua sama melayan kelayangan
Layanganku hanya kau yang mampu lenyapkan
Jangan, jangan hapuskan
Hanya kau yang aku perlukan
Sampai hujung dunia aku pertahankan!

Jika Kau Lihat Ada Apa Pada Malam


Image may contain: outdoor, nature and water

Malam
Kian sunyi menyepi
Berteman cahaya neon di sisi
Gemerincing bunyi gelang kaki kau beri
Melambang kasih setia menanti
Bertemunya kita di dalam mahligai
Tersenyum malu tersimpul dua hati
Menandakan kemanjaan yang telah terjadi
Menghapus duka membelenggu diri
Malam ini
Kita diijabkan kekasih sejati
Malam ini
Kita diijabkan suami isteri
Malam ini
Kita berdua mengikat janji
Hidup bersama itu yang dinanti
Jika kau lihat ada apa pada malam
Pasti kau lihat ada kau dan aku
Bersama memori bahagia kenangan abadi

Laman Minda


No automatic alt text available.


Atas awan sana
Ada langit hitam
Ada kapal kelip malam
Dalam menara sana
Ada gadis berbaju hitam
Ada hati suram kelam
Selerak nota halaman ke mana
Tersadai hanyut di laman minda
Perah otak di balik persada
Merantai jiwa melepaskan bencana
Lari sini ke mari-mari
Inilah tempatku mencari-cari
Ilmu dan ilham
Pada malam membuah saham
Di laman minda
Tidak lagiku terpinga-pinga
Wacana segala perkara!

Sang Pelangi


Image may contain: one or more people and outdoor


Matahari menyingkap di sebalik awan
Memancar sinar ke muka bumi
Panasnya membahang membuat awan kesedihan
Awan mula menitiskan air mata
Membasahi bumi yang gersang
Namun matahari tetap di situ
Terus berbahang di sisi awan
Lalu terbitlah keindahan
Di antara matahari dan awan
Muncul suatu yang berwarna-warni
Bernama sang pelangi
Semua yang melihat akan terpesona
Membuat semua yang melihatnya terleka
Dan sanggup melupakan semua yang ada
Dengan hanya cuba merenungnya
Baru saat ingin menggapainya
Menilai tujuh warna yang ada
Pelangi hilang tanpa berita
Dibawa awan entah ke mana
Perih terasa siapa yang ingin memilikinya
Sang pelangi
Hanya muncul seketika
Tidak dapat menjangka kehadirannya
Namun pabila tiba
Pasti membuat orang gembira

Are you the Hero or the Villain?


Image may contain: 5 people, people standing, tree and outdoor

You might be a hero to someone, and a villain to another person. We all have different perspectives, views and ideas about the world around us. We also come from different school of thought, culture and religion. If someone loves your or hates you, embrace it accordingly. Accept and reflect the bad. 

Not everyone will like us and accept us for who we are. It’s okay to be hated, it’s alright to be different. Probably something that is bad for someone is good for another and vice versa. We can’t please everyone, we can’t make everyone like us. Worry not, you don’t have to. Always compare yourself with who were you yesterday, do you feel better or worse. Do something about that, change for your betterment, not for others. 

Do listen to advises from knowledgeable, experienced, good-hearted people. If someone is being judgmental and spread negativity, don’t be close if you feel affected by their words and action. All of us have different personalities, background and behavior, it is important to value and understand these differences to achieve unity and freedom. We need to learn how to respect others, including ourselves. Respect people no matter who they are. Don't discriminate and be prejudice.

As long as human feels better than one another, jealousy, hatred, revenge and lack of empathy, freedom and unity is still far away from being achieved. If we understand this scenario in life, why should we hate so much? Why should we hate in the first place? If we don’t like it, say it, try to understand the other person feelings and situations, talked about it, and always solved any issues like an adult, a matured, positive adult, human being. 

Two important phrases that are so hard for human to say to another human or being is “I’m sorry” and “Thank you”. If we understand the true meaning behind these two phrases and practice gratitude and the unwanted feelings when we screw other people’s emotion, we would probably achieve togetherness. It takes pride to do this. Ego is the biggest culprit in any relationship and because of ego, valuable and memorable relationships and connection can be easily vanished. 

Let’s inculcate more love than hate will do. More light than darkness ever will. Think about the future of our children. Think about the future of the world, if you don’t have children. There is more than our family and friends. It is the world, the universe. Go out, look up in the sky, and give a thought about this. 

I don’t want to be a hero nor a villain to anyone, I just want to be a person that I hope other people could gain something meaningful or useful from my writings and probably do something good about it. 

If ever I am hated, I am sorry if I did anything wrong to you and thank you for hating because somehow it teaches me to be a stronger individual. If ever I am loved, thank you for loving me for who I am and I’m sorry if I couldn’t provide you the same love that you are expecting or time that is enough for that love. 

I always wish I can do and give more as a being in this world but I admit I have limitations. Nevertheless, I always try my best to grow and develop the best I can for myself and people around me while contributing to the society, other beings and the world, I hope. 

One of my notable quotes is “when there is love, there is life”, which apparently this is the same quote as Mahatma Gandhi and I never know this quote belongs to him until I realize 2 years ago. This was my first quote that I used in my Blog of Life, 3 years back and it got me strong and I do believe in this saying. To me, if everyone loves each other, and there’s no hate, there won’t be loss of lives due to killing, bombing and other unwanted events. Imagine what can we achieve if 7 billion of us is united. The world would be in peace. 

I really hope if each and every one of us can reduce such hatred and the world would be a better place to live. Try, it’s going to be hard, but try. Persevere and have faith. 

Thanks for reading up my writing until here. Thank you, you are the change in the world and I believe in you. Be the best person you want to be and can be, and probably you would want to be a hero to yourself and your family. =)
