Music Wednesday Fresh Edition: Yuna's Live Your Life, Produced By Pharrell

While Yuna might has just launched her latest album - Terukir Di Bintang - but truth to be told, I'm more interested (or rather curious) on the work that she did in United States recently especially with the renowned Grammy-winning producer, Pharrell Williams of The Neptunes/N.E.R.D fame. Live Your Life happens to be one of them which was just released on iTunes yesterday.

Click play to listen to Yuna's Live Your Life.

I really love the song's infectious hip-hop/RnB-infused drum beats which works in hand with the song's groovy basslines and laid back piano tunes. It's very fresh - something that is very different from Yuna's usual melodic acoustic-based pieces - but make not mistake, it is still Yuna's there and there due to her signature voice.

Apparently, this is just one of five tracks that she and Pharrell worked on together. Can't wait to check the rest of them as well as Yuna's new release this spring.

Chap Run Chap: 2012 Is The Year to #MakeItCount

Just like what I've mentioned in previous post, it has been almost one month since I last ran. Hence, it is now time to get my butt off the chair (as well as the non-stop food munching) and kick start the program for 2012.

For the time being, I've yet to decide which event I'm going to participate in 2012 but standard events such as Standard Chartered KL Marathon, Penang Bridge International Marathon, Malakoff 12K KL and Nike We Run KL are already shortlisted by default in my calendar. I also plan to participate in Nike We Run series in other countries such as Singapore and South Korea (yes, blame Running Man for this! xD ) but of course, that depends on available time and financial resources.

In terms of distance, I want to keep it within 15km once again but this year, the target is to DESTROY and ANNIHILATE my Personal Best (PB) for 10K which currently stands at 1h 10m 15s. I want to make sure that I set a good benchmark before I move on to longer distance.

So in summary, my objectives in 2012 are very simple: go faster and finish stronger. Not to forget, it is also the year to make it count. Let's do this! :D

Don't forget to add me on Nike+ through this profile: See you on the road! :D

Chap Run Chap: 2011 vs 2010 - Statistically Speaking

2010 (left) vs 2011 (right) in numbers according to my Nike+ stats.

I always knew that I ran less in 2011 but I never knew that the difference between 2011 and 2010 was really significant until I took a look at my Nike+ stats earlier today. It was 100km shorter! Bad Chap, bad! >.<

On another hand, it seems that my pace was slightly faster than 2010. Not by much though but I take whatever I can. :D

Meanwhile, it has been one month since I last ran in 2011. With February looming around, it is time to get back on the road to clock the mileage. The first stride after a long break is always the hardest, urgh.

Music Monday: Foo Fighters' The Pretender

"Keep you in the dark,
You know they all pretend...

Truth to be told, all of us are just a pretender. It's just a matter how good is one at pretending as well as the purpose.

Scary thoughts aside, if you haven't heard of it yet...Foo Fighters is coming to our region this coming March! Even though they are going to perform in Singapore instead of Kuala Lumpur, I already secured my ticket with the help of a friend. The ticket is pretty expensive after currency conversion but come's the Foos, man!.

Looking forward to catch the show this March! \m/

Video-sauce: Foo Fighters.

Annoying Mandarin Orange: The Long Lost Cousin of Annoying Orange

If there is a fruit that is closely associated with Chinese New Year, that would be mandarin orange - thanks to its status as the symbol for abundance and good fortune. Somehow, there is a troll among many mandarin oranges in this world...its the Annoying Mandarin Orange! *gasp*

Truth to be told, this is one of the better spoof of the world famous Annoying Orange. One might ask what's with all those product placements? Well, Naga DDB is an advertising agency - one of the largest in the country too - and those are all their clients. Still, this is one awesome CNY message or commercial if you want to call it that way.

Meanwhile, Happy Chinese New Year to all who visited my joint. Yeah, you. All seven of you. xD Have a great break and catch up with you very soon. :D

Video-sauce: YouTiup.

#MakeItCount Teaser: What Is Nike Cooking for 19 Jan 2012?

ChiefChapree.NET - Image Hosted by

Today, Nike will be unveiling a new product that is said to be "designed for all kinds of playmakers" and judging for this trailer, it belongs to Nike+ family. Here is where it get interesting: Nike+ technology and products currently revolved around running (and to some extent, football) but the teaser trailer also showed quite a number of sports outside of running such skateboarding, basketball and aerobic.

I really eager to see what is this all about because as you can see, I'm a Nike+ user as well as a big fan of the technology. After all, it was one of the reason why I started running again. It will be awesome to see the technology being applied to other sports.

Well, let's see how it goes. Only few hours left before it is revealed anyway.

Music Monday: LeeSsang's The Girl Who Can't Break Up, The Boy Who Can't Leave

Oh hey, first post of 2012.

Some of you that followed me on Twitter might have heard my recent obsession with a Korean variety show called Running Man. As weird as it might sound, I actually discovered some new music through the show.

Apart from SNSD (DON'T JUDGE ME! :p ), I also started to listen to a rap/R&B duo called LeeSsang - thanks to the fact that one of its members, Kang Gary is part of Running Man's cast. I didn't pay attention at first - was busy laughing at all the hilarious stuff happening in Running Man - until one day, I was curious enough to browse around YouTube for LeeSsang's songs and was hooked up immediately.

Furthermore, many of their lyrics mean something to me which made their music pretty enjoyable to say the least. Am currently still going through its latest album Asura Balbalta and some of their older well-known hits like the one above. So, really looking forward to dive deeper into their discography very soon. :D
