:: The new Judiene's Soul ::

Assalamualaikum to all my readers.

I've change my header again. This time, I changed my template too. I wish I could make one because it took me a day just to find a suitable and interesting template and I end up with this one. The idea of changing my blog template first came a few weeks ago but then I still couldn't find the right one and today, after clicking from  one link to another, I've found what I would like to think as the one and it just take a few minutes to get it all changed. 

~ I adore these cute balls ~

About the header, I opt for a simpler header this time. I don't know, I just like the way it stands up there, alone with no background and only accompanied by three cute little knitted smiley balls. I don't know how long I will be using this header coz I like making header nowadays. All the ideas and the interest, they just come out of nowhere. Whenever I sit in front of my laptop and when I get bored of Facebook, I would click the Photoshop icon and start looking for ideas and thing that can inspire me. 

But I'm still new at Photoshop to be honest. There're so many things to be learned. Who knows, I'll doing a contest in the future and the main prize would be a header made by yours truly! Haha. :)

:: Driving me home ::

Assalamualaikum to all my readers.

Yay! Last weekend I managed to squeeze through my busy schedule and went to Sunway Piramid with my besties to catch the latest installment of Paranormal Activity, entitled Paranormal Activity 3 (PA3).

For those who favour this Paranormal Activity series, you guys must have known how the story evolved, starting from Paranormal Activity 1. This time around, the story is all about how the haunting begins in the family and who responsible to cause all the disturbance. If you think that PA2 is the scariest, well, think again. PA3 is totally gonna scare the hell out of you. I don't wanna to overwrite here coz I don't want to give out any spoilers so, to feel the creepiness that I'm talking about, go to the nearest cinema and watch it yourself.

Okay, moving on to something more important. Next week is Hari Raya Haji, which means that Pudu Raya and Stesen Putra should be packed with people. Fortunately for me, I don't have to go that far to look for the ticket. In fact, I don't need the ticket. This is because, I'll be driving back home. But I'm not alone guys, there will be two other girls accompanying me. You're now assuming that I own a car, aren't you? Well, to answer that question, that's not my car that I'll be driving in, but it's one of the girls' car. I'm just the co-pilot.

~ Thanks Mr. Google ~

Why I'm bringing this up as if it's never been done by human before? It's not like driving back home is something that you can be proud of and make you famous. Well, there's a reason behind it. I never drove outside of Kelantan, which means I never drove from one state to another. So, this is something big for me as it marks the first time I'm driving so far, from Puncak Alam to Kelantan. I remember the moment I told my dad about this and he was kinda disbelieve at first of what he heard but then I promised him to drive slowly and cautiously so that he can stop worrying about the fact that I'm gonna be driving. 

So far, I feel confident to drive. I'm gonna get a good sleep the night before and gotta read something about changing flat tire and stuffs. You know, just in case. ;P

:: Contest DANIEL ADIE: SISPA ::

Assalamualaikum to all my readers.

~ The contest banner ~

This is a last minute participation for Daniel Adie's SISPA Contest and honestly I didn't even feel like participating at first but then I'm stuck with no entries so I've decided to try my luck. Don't get me wrong guys, the reason why I don't wanna join at first is because I don't like to complete a slogan coz I know I'm suck at doing so but this time around, I'm just gonna try. I'm not gonna die if I try right?

The pictures that I'm gonna use for this contest is what you're gonna see below. I had to dig out tons of files just to find the right pictures and I genuinely think that Adie should take my hard work into account. Haha. Just kidding. But it's gonna be nice if he really does that. LOL.

~ Hehe ~

So what's your opinion seeing my SISPA pictures? I'm gonna leave the decision making to Adie and hopefully he's gonna choose the right picture as the winner of the contest. Oh, before I forgot, this is my slogan.

"Terkadang, senyuman palsu terukir apabila mak ayah suruh buat keje lain masa kita tengah syok layan movie dalam laptop so, terpaksa la senyum tak nak kasi diorang kecik hati."


There's only three days left before the closing and I don't know if the person that I tag is still be able to join. Since tagging at least two bloggers is the rule to complete my participation, so, I'm just gonna tag them. The bloggers that I think will join this are Ame and Kamaryeah.

:: First timer ::

Assalamualaikum to all my readers.

As you can see above, I have changed my header to the one that I have designed and created. Noted that this is my first time creating header using Photoshop and I never done anything using Photoshop. I'm a noob in this business. Haha. 

I just want to share this. Nothing significant. Any comment is appreciated. :)

:: X-Factor UK Live Show 3 ::

Assalamualaikum to all my readers.

This is gonna a quick review of last week Live Show 2 of The X-Factor UK. Again, I'm not professional in this business so if any of you professionals out there think that what I'm saying here is all wrong and absurd, I'm so sorry and you can click the Cancel button right on the right hand-side. Thank you. :-)

Okay, lets start reviewing shall we? 

The Boys
Marcus Collins
He's been amazing this week. Love his voice.

Craig Bolton 
I love him the first time I saw him in audition, I love his first two shows and I definitely love this week show. 

Frankie Cocozza
Hmm. I don't really like his voice and his performances so far but there's something about him this week that makes me feel like he's back and to make people who doesn't like him change their minds.

The Girls
Janet Devlin
She has a great voice but like Louis, I think she's getting boring. She's been changing all songs into a slowmo ballad song and I think she really need to show her versatility.

Sophie Habibis
She's very forgettable. Should be on the bottom 2 this week.

Misha B
She's a soul diva. Even though she's singing a rock song this week, she's in her own class. Superb!

The Over 30s.
Kitty Brucknell
She rocks this week. Really love her performance and most importantly her loud voice. Nice!

Sami Brookes
I genuinely feel that Gary has some issues within himself coz by saying to someone like Sami boring is definitely the last thing that a person would call her. Hope people are gonna vote for her.

Johnny Robinson
I didn't watch his performance coz from the start I don't think he deserves to be in the competition. I hate how he sound and I hate the fact that he's still here.

The Groups
 The Risk
Just one word. FABULOUS!

I like this girlband and I hope people are gonna vote for them. Their performance this week is just okay. They need to tighten up their chemistry and enhance their vocals performance.

:: House robbery ::

Assalamualaikum to all my readers.

One thing that people need to get used to if they are residing in Puncak Alam is hearing a lot of burglary cases. There has been so many cases reported for the last 2 months and since the housings here are located at the remote area, the burglars seem to see this as an golden opportunity that shouldn't be missed.

Me and my friends, we rent a house at Perumahan Alam Suria and our house happen to be at the last row of the housing area, which famously known for having many robbery cases. The recent case was reported, a couple of weeks ago, if I'm not mistaken. As I'm typing this entry (at 12.15 am, Friday), my housemates, together with the Rukun Tetangga here are searching for the burglars, that has been seen by the watchmen running from somewhere.

One of my neighbors said that they had tried to go after the robbers but the drizzling rain and the dark of the night made it hard to see. I am not sure how the robbers look like but it is said that they were teenagers, maybe Indonesian teenagers I don't know, and that they had tried to break in to one of the houses here, twice but failed. It's 12.55 am right now and they are still searching for the culprits. 

I got a news from my friends, saying that my neighbor's son had been beaten up by the robbers last night. More updates coming up.

:: X-Factor USA Top 17 ::

Assalamualaikum to all my readers.

The result is finally in. The judges has decided on who's going to the Live Show and the some of them are deserved to picked and even though I agree with most of the judges' pick, I was kinda surprised for The Girls category. I'm not saying that I'm better than Simon Cowell coz I will be a freakin' ass hole if I say that but I don't know. I just feel like there's someone else (read: Jazzlyn Little) who deserve the final spot.

Oh, speaking about surprised, I don't know what Nicole thinks when she say no to Elaine Gibbs and choose Dexter Haygood instead. I mean, for real, this guy!? He'll make a good entertainment value but to be a serious singer and make it in the business, I think Elaine Gibbs has more chance to do that. She might look boring to some people but when it comes to the best voice, I think Dexter is no match to Elaine. To me, she's a soul diva on the show. Tsk. I feel bad for her. Hope someone sees her talent and sign her up for a record deal.

~ Elaine Gibbs ~

Thank God Simon brought back Melanie Amoro into the competition. To be honest, I don't think Simone Battle deserves the spot at the Live Show. Malanie is wayyyyyyyy better and I wouldn't bother to watch this season if Melanie is not competing. For your information peeps, the judges are gonna eliminate one contestant from each of the category (for The Girls, it will be two contestants) at the Live Show 1 and I hope Simone and Tiah Tolliver are the one to go home. 

Okay, enough of whining. Now lets see who the judges have picked as their acts.

 The Girls: Simon Cowell
- Melanie Amaro
- Drew Ryniewicz
- Tiah Tolliver
- Simone Battle
- Rachel Crow

The Boys: L.A. Reid
- Brian Bradley
- Chris Rene
- Marcus Canty
- Philip Lomax 

The Over 30s: Nicole Scherzinger
- Dexter Haygood
- Stacy Francis
- Josh Krajcik
- LeRoy Bell

The Groups: Paula Abdul
- The Brewer Boys
- InTENsity
- Lakoda Rayne
- The Stereo Hogzz

:: X-Factor updates: Live Show 2 and The Judges' House ::

Assalamualaikum to all my readers.

It's a bit late but I don't promise you guys to give the commentary on time right? I am nothing compare to people who study music or those who has knowledge regarding this thing but this comment or opinion is from someone who has no talent in music but love watching singing reality TV shows. 

X-Factor UK

I was expecting something big from my favorite acts and I wasn't impress with Craig's performance. He has a massive voice but the song he chose to sing didn't really expose his great talent. He didn't blow me away like he did on Live Show 1. It was an okay performance to me and I really really hope that Gary can work on choosing the right song for him for Gary has experience in this business.

On the high note, I was happy to see Sami, Misha, Janet and The Risk performances. The Risk did something new to Bruno Mars's Just The Way You Are song and all four of them sounded like they had been together for years. Gary Barlow even said that it was 'pure class'. Great chemistry. Sami sang I Will Always Love You, Misha sang Would I Lie To You and Janet gave justice to Elvis's Can't Help Falling In Love With You song.

X-Factor US

To be honest, I think the category that is gonna bring quite a competition is Over 30s and The Girls, if only Elaine Gibbs and Stacy Francis (Over 30s) and Melanie Amaro (The Girls) are through to Live Show. I tell you guys, these three super talented singers are gonna bring the show down with their performances. For The Boys category, I hope L.A. Reid can do something about them coz I don't see anyone who can beat this three women if people are gonna vote based on talent alone. 

I have nothing to say for The Groups category coz it's still not clear which group got the potential to be the next big boyband and I feel like, Paula Abdul should be thinking about her plan to make sure that the girlband curse from the UK version of this show is not gonna come over here. Other than that, lets see who our judges choose to be competing in the Live Show. I can't wait to see the result.

:: X Factor - The updates ::

Assalamualaikum to all my readers.

The X Factor UK has finally started off its Live Show last week and 16 contestants had been chosen to perform on Live Show 1 before each person from each category is eliminated to make the final cut from 16 to 12. Last week performance was, to me, amazing and most of them look like they're ready to take this challenge on to the next level. 

I was disappointed when my favorite boy band, The Keys didn't make it through but apparently Tulisa had made quite a big decision at the Judges' house to break the group apart and take the lead singer, Charlie, to be combined with 3 other contestants who auditioned in solo category but didn't manage to pass to the Judge's house. The newly created group is named as The Risk. 

My favorite so far are Sami Brookes (Over 25s) , Misha B and Janet Devlin (the Girls), Craig Colton (the Boys) and The Risk (the Groups). All of them had made me proud to be their fan especially Craig because his rendition of Jar Of Hearts was so in-freakin-sanely uhh-mazing and he melted my heart by his singing. I'm not making a fuss or anything but check this out yourself if you think I'm just talking shit. Others performances was okay to me, especially Nu Vibe which also a last-minute formed group and I don't understand what is so fantastic about this group. 

~ Click on this picture to watch his performance ~

If you're wondering which judges mentor which group, wonder no more coz I'm about to tell you guys. Gary Barlow got the Boys, Tulisa got the Groups, Kelly Rowland is ecstatic to get the Girls while Louis is mentoring the same category as the last series of X Factor, which is Over 25s.

X Factor US

Here is a lil update from The X Factor US. All of the judges has received their category to be mentored and below is the list.

  • Simon Cowell - The Girls
  • Paula Abdul - The Groups (Her look when she was giving this news is priceless. LOL)
  • Nicole Scherzinger - Over 30s
  • L.A. Reid - The Boys
The category that I'm looking forward to see are The Girls coz I think most of the contestants chosen to go to the Judges' house are so talented and Simon might have to decide carefully on who he is gonna choose as his final 3 contestant. 

That's all for now peeps. Until then.

:: Best of both world ::

Assalamualaikum to all my readers.

Some of you may know that I'm a reality show freak especially those that involves singing. I watch a lot of reality television singing competition, from Akademi Fantasia to One In A Million and from American Idol to The X Factor. But right now, my focus is fix on these two famous reality TV shows which is basically has the same name but is happening at two different places. They are The X Factor UK and The X Factor USA.

To me, I love the concept of this show which involves teaching and mentoring these aspiring singers from the beginning of the show until the end. Unlike American Idol which the judges only give their critics after the contestant performed, the judges on The X Factor give critics and at the same time mentor the contestants. The auditionees need to walk through 3 stages before position themselves at the Live Shows stage. The stages are -  Judges' audition, Bootcamp and Judges' house. 

As I speak, The X Factor UK and The X Factor US are now airing and kinda like battling to see which version brings out the best out of the best. The X Factor UK is currently on the judges' house stage now whereas The X Factor US is on the Bootcamp stage. I find both version have so many talented and amazing singers and it's kinda hard to see which version is the best. I think I'm gonna enjoy watching these two shows but I'm more eager to watch the US version as it's the first season in US and I wanna see how Americans react to this show.

More updates on this, keep reading this blog. :)

:: Putting my first footprint ::

Assalamualaikum to all my readers.

This weekend, we all are going to Pangkor Island to conduct an orientation course for the newcomers a.k.a. juniors SLASH freshmen. This outdoor event is organized by the student's association of my course, named MELTECH. If you don't know what MELTECH is, that means either you're new to this blog or you totally don't care about what I'd written here. Go check this out.

About 100 students are going to participate in this annual event and I'm excited because I've never been to Pangkor Island before and this time, I'm going there with my friends so, apart from being rejoiced by the activities that we are going to do there, I'm also feel extremely overwhelm to put my first footprint there. I've already made list of things that I need to bring. Haha. Can't wait.

About the event, it is named MELTECH Scene Investigation (MSI) Volume 2 and we feel like to keep that name as the official name for our orientation course since it's done annually. Usually the event takes place somewhere in Selangor or Kuala Lumpur but this year, we feel like doing something big, something different and memorable for those newcomers (and also for us, the organizer) so we chose Pangkor Island as the venue. Since this is the first time we're doing this outside of Selangor, our concern are totally on the security aspect and the welfare of all the students who join. We really hope that everything is going to go as planned and may Allah save us from any harm before, during and after the event. Finger crossed! :)
