Top 11 again…

Today’s theme: Sir Elton John

Scotty: He sings like a pro country crooner! We love him!

Naima: Err… This is AMERICAN Idol. Not Jamaican Idol. Too much of something is not that good. She just needs to sing for now. Sing the song as it was intended to be sung. Weird… It was just weird.

Paul: ooOooo! I like his flowery suit. His performance was ok but very forgettable. I’m bored. Bored… Zzzzzz!

Pia: She can sing but I’m seriously bored with her already. It’s more of; *yawn! So she can sing*, instead of *wow! She can sing!*.

Stefano: Good… Good… Not giving him the standing ovation but at least better than last week.

Lauren: I think I have a problem with my ears today. Everything sounded so blah and yet, the judges are saying good thinga about the performance. Another ok performance from Lauren. Yawn…

James: Ok… Not my ears. I just prefer rock n roll than ballads. I love you James! Rock on!!!

Thia: Arrrghhh!!! Not another ballad!!!!

Casey: Biasness alert. What was wrong with America last week?!!! He is awesome. Awe-so-me!!!!

Jacob: Take a notch down Blackdiva! Learn something from Casey.

Haley: Omg! Sexy!!! Super sexy!!!! I love it!

Bottom 3 for me, Naima, Paul, Stefano.

Who’s going home? Err… Naima and Stefano.

Mati kutu, dunno what to do!

Ini adalah sunglass kegemaran saya:

Ianya sangat istimewa sebab ianya adalah Special Edition Ray Ban yang boleh di lipat-lipat seperti berikut:

Dan sekarang, lensa sebelah kanan sunglass special kegemaran saya ini telah TERCALAR. Iskiskisk…

Siapakah yang bertanggungjawab? Adakah tangan-tangan kecil yang bikin sunglass special kegemaranku ini tercalar? Ataupun sendiri punya salah letak dalam beg bercampur dengan kunci kereta? Maka, dengan ini, kita tutup saja lah kes ini dengan a big fat SIGH…

SIGHHHHHHH….

Sekian.

The best episode since forever! – Top 11

Seriously. And for that, I’m not gonna comment on each performances.

I loved Haley’s performance. It was super-sultry. I didn’t enjoy Pia’s and Thia’s. Not that they didn’t do well. But it was just too predictable.

Not gonna start on my favourite caveman. *heart*…

So who’s going home? Since everyone was good, I’m afraid Haley might get booted out because she doesn’t do this good thing on a weekly basis… Sigh…

Top 12 – as it goes

Am doing this as the show goes.

Naima – People need to learn that you cannot do a Tina Turner if you are not Tina Turner. It was just terrible because she was trying too hard to be better than Tina Turner. She’s not going home yet but this will put her in a dangerous spot.

Paul – Errr… Was he suffering from sore throat or something? IMO, if he sang it without all those pitchy notes, it would’ve been a good performance. Not good for Paul to be too ambitious.

Thia – Of all great Disney songs, she sang the boringest (word of the day by Marina and Cat) song. Bottom 3. But still safe, I think.

James – The song choice is fabulous! Very brave to sing that song. I loooooveee it!!!! Love love love love it!!!!

Haley – Why is she still in the competition?

Stefano – This boy can sing! The dark horse for this season. Impressive…

Pia – As expected, she sang a Whitney. I like what she did with the song but I still think she needs to do more. For me, there’s too many singers like her. Yes, definitely she can sing. Amazing singing but not enough to catch my attention yet.

Scotty – Can some famous label take him away and sign him already???!!! Move aside Miss Swift! A new name in country music has arrived!

Karen – Bottom 3. The song choice is not good. But at least she sang better than Haley. But still not safe. Sigh…

Casey – Crazy caveman took on Nirvana. I am officially subscribing to his music. Again, he will not win the title, but he’s got fans!!!

Lauren – Great stage presence. Not her best performance but it was good. She looks exactly like her mother! Almost like sisters or twins!

Jacob – Over the top again. But I like the fact that he sang something other than rnb. Too much screaming for my ears tho…

Overall, it was a good week. Bottom 3; Karen, Haley and Thia. Me thinks Haley will go home.

Introducing the third gal… Maryam Asyari

Date of Birth: 14th March 2011

Time: 1.49pm

Location: Sunway Medical Centre

Weight/Height: 3.09kg/49cm

We decided to get me induced since I have very little patience left and not to mention my lower extremities were screaming hell of pain.  Almost exactly like the procedure with Khadeeja, we had to be admitted before 7am. The whole procedure started at around 8.30am. Puan Doktor came and broke my waterbag, put in the ubat, then the epidural came in and after that, the waiting began.

It was a long wait because it seems that the baby was still high up in the womb eventhough I was already dilated a few cm. And the worst part was, the epidural was only working on the left side of my body. So I still feel all the pain on the right side. Don’t ask me how and why because I experienced that with Khadeeja as well. But this time around, I knew better than to ask for top ups and I’m glad I felt the pain because it helped a lot during the pushing bit.

At around 12.30pm, Puan Doktor came and said the head was still high and asked me to lay on my side in a crouching position. Assuming that it will take at least a few hours more, at 1.30pm, I told Abu to go for sembahyang Zohor first. As soon as he left, the nurse came, checked my vahjayjay, prepared the bed, lift my legs up and asked me to start pushing. Confused, in pain and tired, I started pushing and after 2 sets of 3 pushes, the nurse stopped me, and called Puan Doktor. When Puan Doktor came, she asked if I wanted to wait for Abu. By that time, the only way to get rid of the pain was to push. So I pushed! Dua kali push and baby Maryam came out like the wind at 1.49pm. Abu came in and got confused when he heard a baby crying in the room… Heh…

Today is the third day after birth and both of us are doing great. Had to give her formula milk last night since I’m still low on boobies juice. Today, the juice is floooooowiiiing! Wooohooo! I hope I have the discipline to proceed with total breastfeeding this time.

The other 2? Very busy trying to be helpful with the feeding and cleaning. But when they saw the poop today, I asked both to help me throw the pampers away and both answered ‘NO THANKS!’… Hahahahahaha!

I leave you people with pictures of the new kid on the block. Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers. Especially to those who came and visit. We love you!!!

Today...

The wrong songs – Top 13 AI

For most of them, it was the wrong song choice. IMO, none of them sang badly. It was just the songs… And for a few, it’s like they were trying too hard…

Lauren – Of all those good Shania songs, she picked something so old fashioned and too country. I was hoping she went for ‘Man! I feel like a woman’. She could’ve started a ‘country-rock’ genre and be the opposite of ‘country-pop’ princess Taylor Swift. She sounded and looked older tonight.

Casey – I’m just too biased on this one. I don’t see anyone other than this caveman. I kno there are better singers in the competition but this dude was clever enough to choose the right song for his voice. My only advice; do something different next week. Just for the sake of the ‘surprise’ element.

Ashton – I immediately forgot her performance after she sang. Pity her…

Paul – He’s got style but it reminds me of Chris Martin instead of Paul. He’ll do a good indie record, but he will not win the title.

Pia – My problem with this woman is that she is too predictable. She will be tackling all those power ballads, and I foresee her singing at least a Whitney and a Mariah song. Her strong point is only when she hit those high notes. And because she sang ‘all by myself’ tonight, I am voting her out!!!! *coughCATDORKYSUICIDALSONGcough*

James – His voice sounded like Axl Rose. He can go far but needs to look for new way to impress the audience other than screaming at the top of his lungs. Nonetheless, his performance is actually my second favourite performance.

Haley – When she sang, I feel like doing the hula. I dunno why… I just wanted to wear a grass skirt and do the hula.

Jacob – Too over the top. Dude, we kno you can sing. You don’t have to over do it. And I didn’t like the song arrangement at all.

Thia – She’s safe this week, but I was not blown away like I did last week.

Stefano – I don’t NOT like his voice. I have a huge problem with how he changed the song too much. Stevie’s songs are like super sacred. I’d rather if he leave it be.

Karen – She’s in trouble… I also forgot her performance right after she sang.

Scotty – This boy will be one of the prominent names in country music. He doesn’t need to win AI for it. I bet that a few record labels are already tailing him.

Naima – Not gonna win but at least her performance was memorable.

So who will get the red card? I think Ashton will say buh-bye this week. It’s between her, Karen or Haley but since she performed earlier than them and audience tends to forget faster, she’s in trouble.

He puts a spell on me! – Top 24 AI

I’m not gonna say much about the performances. I’m just gonna pick my top 5 dudes and top 5 dudettes.

  1. Casey Abrams – Uh-may-zing growling!!!! I applaud him for being different. My favourite for now, but at this stage, and knowing the pattern of how Americans tend to vote for the second best, he’s not gonna win the title. But who cares?! I love him!
  2. Jacob Lusk – My favourite man-diva… Dude can sing his lungs out.
  3. Paul McDonald – Ain’t gonna win but love the performance!
  4. James Durbin – He is annoying but the song choice was good.
  5. Scotty McCreery – Not my favourite contestant but at least he’s better than the other few.

And my top 5 girls;

  1. Naima Adedapo – I hope she goes far. She is beautiful and I love the eccentricity of her performance.
  2. Thia Megia – Please, please don’t let her be another Jasmine Trias. Unique voice for a 15 years old.
  3. Lauren Alaina – I don’t like her because she is such an ass-licker (enough with the flirting with Mr Tyler!) but the girl can sing.
  4. Rachel Zivita – I kno a lot of people will disagree on this choice but she’s unique.
  5. Karen Rodriguez – So she can sing a Mariah… Watever…

I think this season, most of the contestants are very unique and have their own style. So I’m hoping that one of the weird ones wins this time. Not looking forward for another Carrie Underwood wannabe to win the title. 😉

p/s: Ms Lopez’s dress was fugly but looving the hair and makeup.
