“幸福嗎都說不知道 X 怎麼樣都好:誰的美麗誰自己都知道”

曾經和同齡的

少奶奶一同出行

那也是一年前的事了

目的地:大阪

這是一次很好的體驗

*

逛童裝部門

少奶奶:

這件很好,不知道我兒子喜歡嗎

大齡剩女:

這件不錯,可惜我也用不著

*

逛玩具部門

少奶奶:

我兒子應該喜歡這個,買!

大齡剩女:

我的collection還缺這個,買!

*

逛名牌店

少奶奶:

買這個不知道我老公會不會說太貴

大齡剩女:

我還是坐這裡,幫你們看包吧

*

逛手信店

少奶奶:

我得給七大姑八大婆買什麼呢?

大齡剩女:

買茶葉吧,容易帶

*

回到民宿

少奶奶:

我得給我老公打電話

大齡剩女:

我得回個電郵

*

我想這不是所謂的衝突

只是。。。

*

作為少奶奶

如果不需要打拼,幹嘛這麼拼

作為大齡剩女

你以為我想,我沒人養

*

作為大齡剩女

如果可以去旅行,幹嘛不去

作為少奶奶

你以為我不想,出個門勞師動眾

*

作為少奶奶

你這樣拼,到頭來什麼都沒有

作為大齡剩女

如果我連拼都不拼,那我才是一無所有

*

作為少奶奶

你這樣一個人,不擔心以後嗎

作為大齡剩女

不擔心是騙你的,只是擔心有用嗎

*

我思路其實壞了

剛剛洗澡

想得比較工整的對比的

現在反正就是記不起了

*

女孩 / 李榮浩

*

我每到了星期五

就有莫名的憂慮

也不明白是為什麼

大概是累積下來的壓力太多

或者是開始計劃

週末的工作安排

*

到了這種時候

說實話

唯一推著我前進的

就是即將起飛的機票

多多益善

*

然而要飛就需要錢

所以就會乖乖回到工作了

*

趁著不害怕 X 選條路出發:去吧,少年

1117 終終於發片

前面九首都首播了

所以就等這首了

還是有點期待的

save the best for last

*

就好像《大太陽》

多多多好聽的一首

排在整張專輯最後一首

感覺都被人們遺忘了

*

在演唱會作為

最後一首encore曲

是很好的結尾

突然感覺終於吐氣揚眉了

*

由於這是唯一一首

沒有作為單曲發行的

所以封面是專輯的封面

少年 你這樣好嗎?

李榮浩 - 少年

*

我想還是自己動手

把它換成這個好了

據說這少年11歲輟學自學音樂

(據說。。。吸煙也是)

李荣浩 - 少年

*

感覺把《大太陽》MV開靜音

配搭《少年》的曲

畫風其實是挺搭的是吧?

*

居然還沒破百萬 嗚嗚嗚

大太陽 / 李榮浩

*

其實我還沒想到

聽後感這麼寫

除了。。。好聽

*

待我單曲循環個千百遍

悟出些什麼

才告訴你吧

*

循環三遍後。。。

其實《少年》和《大太陽》

還是有點不一樣的

*

有R&B味的acapella和音

有點陶喆的調調

也是 我們這個“年代”的人

少年時 第一次並

聽得最多的R&B就是陶喆

陶喆就是R&B的代名詞

*

那已經是20年前的事了

1997年《同名專輯》

《飛機場的10:30》

《愛,很簡單》

《沙灘》

《望春風》

*

我感覺現在

要是拿著歌詞本

整張專輯的歌曲

我都還記得怎麼唱

*

沒死去N年後 X 才發現沒事:戒菸

話說

這麼快就來第8首了

*

其實

#7《后羿》聽後感都還沒寫

主要是因為MV沒有

微博有“王者榮耀”版

不知道是不是版權問題

所以華納並沒有在

YouTube發行官方版

*

我對菸有特別情結

不知道為什麼

大概是和個人經歷有點關係

*

11.11那天就這麼巧

遇見很喜歡的那個人帶著小孩

其實第一次遇見並喜歡上

就是十年前在後巷吸煙的他

沒想到是到今時今日

居然還會怦然心跳

*

後來有段“扮公室”日子

和幾個大男人混吸煙區

不吸煙就純粹吹水

幸好只是短短一年

所以我還沒死

*

晚上回到和室友

幾乎0交流的“家”

很多個晚上在陽台

繼續(假裝)吸煙

*

電影《志明春嬌》系列

歌曲《尼古丁》《如煙》

到老大不久前翻唱的《內疚》

*

話說回來

這首是一次聽就上癮的那種

但實際內容 我忘了

畢竟只聽了一次

只好再等下輪首播

戒菸 李榮浩

*

其實“煙”和“菸”。。

但我發現歌詞裡用的是

“禮拜”而不是“星期”

*

由於姐姐最近壓力很大

練字字卻寫得不怎麼樣

就把歌詞從播放器抄出來了

才發現其實歌詞特短

還有在鼓手那欄發現了“李一丁”

*

戒菸

詞/曲:李榮浩

*

已經為了變得更好去掉鋒芒                                                              

一不小心成了你的傾訴對象

電話約在從前約會的地方

要陪你唱歌吃飯我結帳

保持優良習慣

*

你說最近過得還算幸福美滿

喝了幾杯唱了幾段你卻哭了

想去安慰卻不知道什麼立場

聽你說話看你哭濕頭髮

我得到了懲罰

*

戒了煙我不習慣

沒有你我怎麼辦

三年零一個禮拜

才學會怎麼忍耐

你給過我的傷害

是沒有一句責怪

戒了煙染上悲傷

我也不想

*

你說最近過得還算幸福美滿

喝了幾杯唱了幾段你卻哭了

想去安慰卻不知道什麼立場

聽你說話看你哭濕頭髮

我得到了懲罰

*

戒了煙我不習慣

沒有你我怎麼辦

三年零一個禮拜

才學會怎麼忍耐

你給過我的傷害

是沒有一句責怪

戒了煙染上悲傷

我也不想

*

我也不想

誰也不想

*

戒了煙我不習慣

沒有你我怎麼辦

三年零一個禮拜

才學會怎麼忍耐

你給過我的傷害

是沒有一句責怪

戒了煙染上悲傷

我也不想

Single Day X Shopping All the Way 07: Which Bag, Finally

since earlier this week

i was looking for a bag

from saddle to messenger

to hip pack then finally

a chest bag

*

so it’s this one

we are talking about

Outdoor Products X Pacman Chest Bag

i just bought an AT luggage

well obviously

the price tag is a bit hefty

*

then i went out

for weekend shopping with my mom

being ridiculous as always

i almost got this

Cotton On Kids X Kermit the Frog

*

and my mom was like nay

so i kept throwing hint that

okay fine i’ll go for

the more pricey choices online

and i showed her the picture

*

so i was back

pondering over to or not to

to convince myself that

it’s a really good choice

*

i found two relatives of his

which are less lovely yet

almost as pricey

Outdoor Products X Joshua Chest BagOutdoor Products X Joshua Chest Bag

*

and to make myself

feel better about

paying that price

i did a quick research on eBay

Single Day X Shopping All the Way 06: Last Call at 11 PM

after my first but unsuccessful attempt

last night which was actually

a blessing in disguise as

it saved me from an impulse purchase

*

and Lazada was kind enough

to send me an unique voucher code

so that i can re-attempt buying

as the official voucher code

has been fully redeemed

long time ago

*

i decided to utilize it for my

Kanebo Suisai Beauty Clear Powder

as the one in my wishlist

suddenly rocketed

i decided to just buy from

some other seller

Screenshot_20171111-004818

*

but wait a minute

the price went down again

Screenshot_20171111-230755

*

so i will just stick to this one then

but i need to purchase 150 MYR

in order to use my 33 MYR rebate

*

i ended up buying

some Lipton tea bags from Uniliver

which i am drinking almost every day

Screenshot_20171111-231405

*

okay it worked fine

Screenshot_20171111-231450

*

and final stage: payment

this can’t afford to fail

because it was almost midnight

i.e. the voucher code will

soon expire

thank goodness it did

Single Day X Shopping All the Way 05: Random in-Store Luggage Purchase

so i went out as usual

in the evening for

a walk cum grocery shopping

*

two days ago

saw a luggage fair

nearby the supermarket

this area is kinda dangerous

*

because at this side of

the department store

is known as the event hall

for different promotion campaigns

from time to time

*

i will tell you why

i need a luggage

that was two months ago

at Guangzhou Baiyun Airport

*

they were getting really strict

with baggage policy:

only one hand carry allowed

or two if one of them is a

computer bag

*

and for check in luggage

they only allow two per person

for people like me who

prefer packing in smaller bags

*

this presents a big issue as

all my bags are rather light weight

yet i am barred from

checking in or bringing on board

due to the strict quantity policy

*

and to make the situation

a bit more adventurous

i gave up my laptop bag

to my dad as he needed it

for his loots

*

so i was actually

travelling to the airport

with my laptop in a woven tote

and later on as we need to

further reduce our baggage quantity

*

i had to make the woven bag disappear

so i ended up going on board

like seriously light

can't zip ><yeah Thermos follows

*

that was when

i really wish i had a luggage

so that i can just throw everything in

*

well

you have no idea

how i enjoy having different bags

i.e. more flexibility

instead of a luggage

my travel companionmy travel companion

*

so i was forced to seriously

consider about a luggage

yeah i have thought of

buying online too

*

but somehow luggage is something

you have to feel in term of

the weight, wheels, texture etc

*

well when it comes to luggage

i struggle so much lesser

as i know i want an A.T.

so softside or hard?

Hello ATs

*

the applite series is really light

like 2.7kg for a medium sized

i would seriously considering

American Tourister Applite

*

hard side is of course

more sleek looking and lighter

but durability unknown

as a check in luggage

*

and two days later

on 11.11 i ended up here again

*

wait a minute

durability is not really an issue

if i am getting a cabin luggage

as it will probably

stay with me all the time

American Tourister Zavis

*

so i bought it

just do it

in spite of not getting

any weekend cash voucher

which is occasionally available

*

suddenly feeling excited

for my upcoming trip

in 3 week time

Excited!!! for my next trip suddenly

*

by the way

this new luggage of mine is Zavis

American Tourister Zavis

*

by the way

i bumped into him again

my crush when i was working

at this very mall as a part timer

like a decade ago??

*

he is still so good looking

so is his son

no it has nothing to do

with this luggage purchase

*

but somehow making my

Single Day this year

more memorable than ever

*

07: Which Bag, Finally

*

Single Day X Shopping All the Way 04: Finally From 11street at 6PM

throughout the day

yeah i was looking

but nothing much really

*

except seeing

items on my Lazada wishlist

slowly being bought by others

which is a good thing because

who knows if i will accidentally

make an impulse purchase

Screenshot_20171111-171201Screenshot_20171111-171225Screenshot_20171111-171211

*

and i found a bag that

i really wanted to buy on Zalora

but no hurry because

it was not even on sale

and i had a voucher code

that will only expire end of 2017

*

it’s crazy how

i spent days browsing bags

from Fossil to Herschel

yet i decided to go for something

which is not even on sale

Screenshot_20171111-144301

*

i remember i bought

quite a lot from 11street last year

they were going all out

11.11 is a big day for 11street

but to my disappointment

there are nothing much really

*

like come on

25 MYR rebate for 350 MYR

this is shockingly unattractive

Screenshot_20171111-181324

*

for the past two months

i have been using their payday coupon

during end of every month

which goes like 25 off for 200/220

in fact some items from my last order

are still on the way

*

but i went on to check out

their individual brand coupons

Screenshot_20171111-184656

*

okay this is not bad

similar to the TESCO voucher

that i used on Lazada last night

30% off for mininum purchase of 100

*

so i ended up buying more grocery

such as milk and instant noodle

Screenshot_20171111-182709

*

pretty good isn’t it

so having failed my first attempt

i quickly made a come back

this time round at TESCO

Tesco @ Lazada

*

30% off is seriously good

especially for grocery

can you imagine

1 AM in the morning

i was actually happily

buying Milo from Tesco

in conjunction with Single Day

Tesco @ Lazada

*

successful, after all

payment system worked fine

it made me felt so much better

after the first failed attempt

*

guess what

the voucher code ran out

pretty fast as well

i tried experimenting with

the same voucher code on

my dad’s phone/account

few minutes later

*

i had the feeling that

i will end up buying

07: Which Bag, Finally

*

Single Day X Shopping All the Way 02: Failed Attempt at 12AM

so i really stayed awake

until 12 AM to see if

something will happen overnight

*

since Lazada is part of

Alibaba Group now

yup in fact i saw their

corporate ad on TV

Taobao/Tmall/Lazada

*

so it came in at 12:18 AM

Lazada Single Day Sale

*

i actually didn’t have much to buy

except my Kanebo Suisai

Beauty Clear Powder

which is running low

and i don’t foresee myself

going to Japan anytime soon

*

wth it was less than 70 MYR

when i added it to wishlist

Kanbeo Suisai Beauty Clear Powder on Lazada

*

then somehow i found this

didn’t know how it ended up

on my wish list but for real

50% off is too good

not forgetting the extra rebate

i was about to attempt using

Lazada Single Day Sale

*

so i tried to check out

along with a minor item

in order to hit 150 MYR

yeah it worked

Lazada Single Day Sale

*

but then

crap payment failed

Lazada Single Day Sale

*

so i can sense that

i literally have to give up

the 33  MYR rebate

because by the time

they cancel this order

the voucher would

has been fully redeemed

*

and also running the risk of

giving up the bag too

since this was the last item

Lazada Single Day Sale

*

so so disappointing

item i wanted was suddenly

much more pricey

and payment system was down

in spite of voucher that worked

*

isn’t it

but i am not a quitter

hahaha

and the story took a turn

*

i went for second attempt

buying something else instead

will talk about that later

in the next post

*

and to my surprise

i woke up next morning

to find this in my email

voucher re-validated

what???

Lazada Single Day Sale

*

and the bag was

actually still available

but i didn’t feel like

buying it anymore

as i went on to explore

Single Day X Shopping All the Way 01: Saddle or Sling

since earlier this week

have been bombarded with

deals for Single’s Day

i don’t really have anything

that I am dying to buy

*

but i need an everyday bag

i mean i want one

that i can just grab and go

with only the essentials

and during travel too

of course

*

which is neither too small

can’t fit in my long wallet

nor too big that i tend to

stuff in more and more

*

so i started to look around

and found the follows:

(1) Fossil crossbody sling bag

yay:

- black/brown go with everything

- smart casual is a plus point

nay:

- don’t feel good about using leather

- can’t fit a water bottle

- falling more for the outfit > bags

Fossil Emi Saddle 2FOssil Emi Saddle Brown TasselFOssil Emi Saddle BrownFossil Emi SaddleFossil Kendall CrossbodyFossil Maya CrossbodyFossil Peyton Double FlapFossil Piper ToasterFossil Sydney Crossbody

*

(2) Crumpler messenger bag

yay:

- non-leather

- bigger capacity

- at least for a water bottle

nay:

- too casual

- a bit too big for certain occasions

- not really a brand i relate to

Crumpler Minor Upset Messenger Bag

*

since i can’t really make up my mind

i just leave them for awhile

i strongly believe in first sight

if i can’t make up my mind

it probably means

i don’t really like them that much

*

then i got this on Facebook

spot the error

FB_IMG_1510364889510

*

so 12 AM on Nov 11

i got in to see what are

they offering and found

an item on my wishlist

is actually 50% off

i didn’t know how come

it ended up on my wishlist too

*

(3) Herschel tote bag

yay

- favorite color and brand

- super good deal

nay

- i don’t need a tote

- 12 oz denim is heavy

- tends to clash with my outfit

Herschel Richmond tote

*

but payment failed

so i was stuck since

this was the last item

Screenshot_20171111-005233

*

and soon the voucher code

i was trying to use

was already fully redeemed

when i was trying to check out

something else instead of bag

*

but i never expect Lazada actually

sent me an exclusive code

to make up for the discount

i was supposed to enjoy

*

when i woke up in the morning

with the chance to check out

i don’t feel like getting it anymore

because well obviously that was

an attempt of impulse purchase

thank goodness payment failed

*

so i decided that i will

utilize the voucher code

on some groceries, probably

*

then i came across

(4) Herschel Fifteen hip pack

yay

- only the essential

- look really good

nay

- too small, isn’t it

Herschel Fifteen Hip Pack

*

then i kinda lost track

among their chambray collection that

i kinda realize that i am actually

falling for the color/brand

instead of finding a bag that

really fits in what i need in the first place

Herschel Post Mid-VolumeHerschel Heritage backpackHerschel Nelson Backpack

*

their hip packs come in a few sizes

maybe Seventeen is a better choice

as it obviously fits in a water bottle

Rakuten sellers are awesome for this

but then again

it could be a bit too bulky

Hershel Seventeen Hip Pack 3 Liter 3

*

Hip/fanny pack

Belt/bump/waist bag

they basically mean the same

*

i have to own up that

i like hip pack partly because

i like to see guys carrying one

so i am not sure if i really

want it for myself

Hershel Seventeen Hip Pack 3 Liter 2

*

damn

what am i stressing myself

over shopping which is

supposed to have reversed effect

*

by the way

then i decided

i am just going to

concentrate on the bag

*

so that would take

Fossil and Herschel off the list

and went on to explore others

but i was still equally confused

and ended up looking at bags

that i don’t really need at the moment

*

such as Jansport

Screenshot_20171110-122727

*

and Outdoor Products

Outdoor Products Air Force Two Way BagOutdoor Products Air Force Two Way Bag

*

then i found this

(5) Outdoor Products X Pacman chest bag

yay:

- love at first sight

- makes a better chest bag > hip pack

nay:

- pricey

- childish (so me)

Screenshot_20171111-144301

Screenshot_20171111-123902

*

i mean yeah

i was looking for hip pack

because i thought it will

make a good chest bag

the same goes to crossbody sling

*

but i actually forgot that

chest bag is actually

a type of bag on its own

i.e. an one-sided mini backpack

which can be used as a cross body

Screenshot_20171111-144228

*

forgive me for cropping the face

because i just wanna focus on the bag

Outdoor Products Pacman Chest Bag

*

and here’s another design

and their entire collection

celebrating 35 years of Pacman

but i still prefer the first

http://p-bandai.jp/item/item-1000106290/

Outdoor Products x Pacman 35th Anniversary Bags

*

but no worries

i am in no hurry to decide

but obviously i strongly suspect

i will go for the Pacman chest bag

as my voucher code is valid until

*

damn

of all choices

i rather go for the one

without any mark down
