I Got Things For Teas

Saturday, February 20, 2016



        Assalamualaikum  and hello to all my lovelies! As you guys that don't know, I've been into teas since last year but yeah, got no skills and knowledge 'bout it. So practically, what I knew 'bout teas then were
hot boiled water (maybe nearly 100 degrees) and a bag of tea. That's it. I thought I was healthy back then with drinking teas and stuff but It was horribly wrong! Once, I accidentally bought a loose tea and didn't actually know that I got to infuse it! (Look at how horrible I was back then.) So I basically put that loose tea in a bottle water and foolish me, I put a lot of it and didn't even throw out the leaves after it brewed for many freakin' hours. So in the end of the day, I got a bitter tea and drank it. (Yuck)

It's all started when I typed 'How to brew tea properly' on Google for the sake of fun and it taught me a huge lesson that for all the time, I brewed the tea completely wrong. I actually destroy the nutrition in those tea leaves.(Wahh) After I learnt my lesson, I actually still used that hot boiled water and a tea bag though.(tak insaf lagi ye) My mom bought a lot of loose tea actually but we don't have an infuser so, tea bags were my lifesaver at the moment. When we went to China on January, my mom and I learnt quite a bit about teas because people there always serves teas. Green tea. (which is my favourite).

When we came back to Malaysia, we started to get crazy all over the teas and we bought a lot of loose teas and a teapot (with built-infuser). Threw away the expired teas and fill up the shelves with brand new teas! *blow nails* So, there's go my proper way to brew tea journey. *smile happily* Too bad tea is not a popular thing in Malaysia, but Teh Tarik (Milk Tea) is everywhere. Well, that's where all the fat came from then. The nearest tea shop is Bentjeman & Barton or as I call it B&B (because it's too long). *wink*

My favourite one would be Wulong Milky from B&B. It smells creamy, good and delicious. My mom and I bought it literally just for the smell itself. Now I'm eager to learn about teas more (teach me, teach me)! Well, it's never wrong to fill up extra knowledge in me. *huhuhu*

(sorry for the messy background)

What's your favourite flavour?

Purpose by Justin Bieber

Monday, February 01, 2016

     Assalamualaikum and hello lovelies! It's been quite a long time that I didn't post any review/impression on any album. So, I think I'm going to review Purpose by Justin Bieber. I know, I know Purpose was out about two months ago and I'm late on reviewing it but it won't go wrong if I'm reviewing one of my favourite albums. Justin Bieber released Purpose on Nov 13 and totally created a huge phenomenon with his huge belieber went wild about it. Of course, I went crazy over it when my local radio played some of the tracks so I've been really wanting to buy the album. So I bought it already and have a great time play it while I shower. Totally my shower tune now. So let's continue with the review shall we?


1. Mark My Words
Love love love the intro of this song and the fact that this is one of the three songs that Justin wrote for her lovely ex Selena Gomez. (Which he admitted on Ellen Show) I love his vocal in this and when he ends it with high notes was just amazing. This song also stated to a lover that he'll mark his words and want his relationship to still going strong. He still believes that they will have a chance again. One of my favourite song.

"Falling in and out of trust
Trying to rekindle us"

2. I'll Show You
His fourth single from Purpose and the meaning of the song describes his life. Personally, I think that he wrote this song for his struggle to perform in front of the world, camera lens, press and all. He stated that he is just a normal human being and seriously,  people can't expect him to be a perfect guy that all world imagine. We only saw a tiny bit of his life and already judge him from it. Love this song by the way.

"This life's not easy
I'm not made of steel"

3. What Do You Mean?
He stated to Ellen that he wrote this song 'bout how complicated girls can be. Oh seriously, girls really are complicated. I'm a girl and I know that we are complicated and sometimes hard to understandable too. Justin use a breathy vocal in this and it's kind of a sequel to Where Are U Now.

"You're so indecisive of what i'm sayin'
Trying to catch the beat, make up your heart "

4. Sorry
Another millions hit from JB which is Sorry. Blowing off the charts and fangirls head. Another song that rumored to be about Selena. Well Justin, you did a great job by releasing this song. Hope you be honest with your apology though!

"I'll take every single piece of the blame if you want me to
But you know that there is no innocent one in this game for two"

5. Love Yourself
Written by Ed Sheeran and personally, I think that Justin's didn't meant this song exactly for Selena. But I love how this song is a great and gentle way to say 'F*ck yourself' to the people that we absolutely hate. Nice job Ed and Justin's voice really fits this song perfectly.

"'Cause if you like the way you look that much
Oooh baby you should go and love yourself"

6. Company
One of my favourite song from Purpose! I don't know I just like the beats and how his voice blends well with the beats.

"Need a picture for my frame
Someone to share my ring"

7.  No Pressure (ft. Big Sean)
I think this song is directed towards Selena (whink whink) because the lyrics fit wonderfully with their situation. This song really brings back to Journal era which 90% basically about Selena. Don't forget 'bout Big Sean tho! The rap is sick and I love how it flows perfectly in the song.

"Thought that you were in it for the paper
Never thought I'd take you serious"

8. No Sense (ft. Travis$ Scott)
This is kinda hip hop/r&b type of song. At first I was kind of confuse this with no pressure.

"I've driven almost every car
It ain't the same when I'm without you"

9. The Feeling (ft. Halsey)
I just simply fell in love with this song at the moment I heard this song and kept on replayed on Spotify. I just love Justin's vocals in it and Halsey just blended perfectly in it. The lyrics are great but yup, people said that this song sounds weird because it sounds like Justin is singing with his younger self. Kind of funny.

"Or am I in love with the feeling?
Trying to find the truth"

10. Life is Worth Living
A ballad song that will bring some of you in tears. This song just make us realised how life is all you had and before it ends, let makes it worth living. The lyric is so calming and really is my bedtime song.

"Relationship on a ski slope
Avalanche comin' down slow"

11. Where Are U Now
His first single that made us waited for Purpose all along. Work of skrillex and diplo turns to great music and brought Justin Bieber alive again. Such a catchy song and makes everyone dance along to it.

"I give you attention when nobody else was payin'
I gave you the shirt off my back, what you sayin'?"



12. Children
A great song that points toward this new generation. I love how he proves that this new generation can also make a change in this world and when the beats drop was a total rad.

"Whose heart is the biggest?
Wear it in your sleeve"

13. Purpose
Behold, the title of the album itself. Another ballad from Justin that opens people's eyes. I don't know if this was meant religious or something else but the lyrics are beautiful. When he added the recorded voice of his, added more meaningful on this song. Also motivates people to believe in theirselves. A great way to end this album.

"Thinking my journey's come to an end
Sending out a farewell to my friends, forever peace"

My favourites out of this album

So, what's your fav from Purpose?
