[Music Monday] I Couldn't Ask For More by Edwin McCain

It is an old song but there were two occasions that this song played on my mind during the past one year:

1. The day that I got married.

2. The day our son was born.

It is funny how these two things are not exactly something  that I would usually said as opposed to stuff like "dude, I'll buy that DeLorean when I retired," or "I totally want to get my hands on that self-lacing Nike shoes, man" but when the moments above took place, I realized that they were indeed the best things that happened to me so far...

...which is why there are really no other things that can really convey my feelings as good as this song.

Smiling just to see the smile upon your face,
These are the moments I thank God that I'm alive,
These are the moments I'll remember all my life,
I found all I've waited for and I could not ask for more.

All in all, I'm grateful. I know that this is just the beginning of a new chapter of my life that I'm still getting used to but right now, at this point of time, I'm really grateful for it.

[Music Monday] Month of May by Arcade Fire

"Start again in the month of May,
Come on and blow the wires away"

Oh hey, what do you know, May is already here! Time to go out of my weekend slumber and get the gears working hard again.

Writing, running, fitness, learning...can you all stop leading me to things that will have me restarting doing things that I like again and over again? Can you?

Well, really hope you can. So, let's go!

[Music Monday Coachella 2016 Edisyun] Welcome To The Jungle By Guns N' Roses Classic Lineup

...and I thought it would never happened in my lifetime. Axl, Slash, and McKagan back together as Guns N' Roses!

Then again, I guess it is most likely for old time's sake. I'm not expecting new songs and even if they somehow managed not to cat fight among each other throughout their current tour.

Nevertheless, I still wish I was at Coachella last weekend to catch this memory-filled glorious moment though. Even though I've seen GNR live before but...come on, this is just different. Oh well.

[Music Monday CNY Edisyun]: That Shaolin Soccer Song...

When Stephen Chow's Shaolin Soccer became a hit, I recall that it somehow became a staple in Chinese New Year programming on TV for few years. Not this year though as I'm watching the first of From Vegas To Macau (what a timing since the third installement has just hit cinema) on 8TV as I'm typing this entry.

[Huiyoh] How A 290 KM/H Bike Crash Looks Like, Caused By A Blown Tyre

So, this particular crash actually happened in our very own Sepang Circuit few days ago which involved Loris Baz of Avintia Racing during MotoGP testing session. What happened was that the rear Michelin tyre on his Ducati race machine blown while he was going through Sepang's main straight near the start/finish line at around 290 km/h. Crazy!

[Huiyoh] When A F1 Car Goes Against Bunch of Rugby Players

Formula 1 has not yet started for this season and it is not surprising that Red Bull Racing has came out with several interesting concept to keep the noise coming even during the off season. There's driving its F1 car in ice, and then this, a scrum against rugby players. What?

[Music Monday] Let Love Be Your Energy by Robbie Williams

If you're willing to change the world,
Let love be your energy...

Similar to Smashing Pumpkins' Ava Adore, Robbie Williams' Let Love Be Your Energy is one of the many songs that I discovered through a TV channel which I couldn't remember its name anymore (could be either MetroVision or NTV7). I remember it mainly for its animated music video which has a rather interesting style although it was censored on the TV channel due to its adult nature.
