SW19 is the Place to BE!!

Like every year around this time [well for as far as I can remember], I’ve been at home watching Wimbledon. If you don’t know what it is, I have this to ask ‘WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?!!!!’. Wimbledon is one for the four Grand Slam Tennis Tournaments, it is the only one that is played on grass courts and has a uniform code [all white]. It is also the oldest tennis tournament and considered the most prestigious, every year for two week [late june/early july] it is held at the All English Club.

Enough of the quick education talk, Wimbledon is the only tennis tournament I watch… maybe thats because I live in England and its always shown on BBC1, its just a lot easier for me to watch plus its played on grass courts and tennis doesn’t feel like tennis unless its on grass.

I enjoy watching Men’s tennis a lot more!!!  Unless if its the Williams sisters [by that I mean Venus or Serena]. I absolutely love watching Roger Federer play!!! Its like so flowyyyyy, so elegant!! My sister on the other hand disagrees and prefers to watch womens tennis, she says men’s tennis is too slow, that I do agree to some extent…. maybe thats why I love watching R.Federer, he is so elegant in his game!!!

So back to what I wanted to say, on thursday 2nd July rather than stay at home I went to Westfield shopping centre with my mummy and younger sister, it was a nice shopping trip, the three of us hadn’t done that in some time so it was nice! Unlike when my sister and I were younger, just following out mother shopping, this time it was the three of us shopping. Of course its not like we hadn’t shopped before but its usually just my mother and I, my sister doesn’t like leaving the house lol Like I said it was just the three of us shoppping, eating lunch then a coffee and off home we went. Though the highlight of the day had nothing to do with shopping but yes you’ve guessed it tennis. My sister and I knew it was the women’s semi finals and it stayed in our minds, as the outcome could lead to another all Williams final and that I would love to watch again (there has been 3 all Williams final at Wimbledon)!!.

So we were just walking round on the first floor and we happened to pass the Sky stand (you know the Sky subcribtions stand) and there were a few people looking at the screen, I was wondering ‘what are they looking at?’ I got closer and closer and I could finally see what they were looking at….. WIMBLEDON!!! They were showing the match!!! It was start of the third set which meant both Elena Dementieva  and  Serena Williams had a set. It was the final set, the deciding set!!! Serena didn’t look on form and made some mistakes she shouldn’t have and Elena was pretty much on FIRE!!!

We tried to walk away but we just wouldn’t keep away!!! So my sister andI (including my mother) just stood there walking the rest of the match!!! LOL The crowd grew bigger…. it was exciting!! So in the end Serena Williams won, and it meant an ALL WILLIAMS final!! YAY! A repeat of last year but will Venus will again? and defend her title?


Fan Girls: SCREAMMMMMMM

Ok nothing new but I just haven’t had the time to blog about it…. As most of you will know already that in Kpop ‘Big Bang (빅뱅)‘ are pretty much the only group that can bring out a little fan girl in me ^_____^ Yes I have a huge Noona soft spot for the boys ^____^ Though that doesn’t mean to say I’m biased when giving an opinion on  their music (ok maybe a little).

They’ve finally released a single in Japan in japanese!!! Wooooo [Candle doesn’t count as it was just a bonus track]. Its not an unfamiliar song as its just a Japanese version of ‘Heaven’ [track 3 on the 3rd mini album Stand Up in Korea] entitled ‘My Heaven’

Couldn’t find the MV for some reason….. must be because all the copyright stuff going on.

Love the song!! Loved the korean version and I think it sounds better in Japanese though a lot of people would disagree. If BB’s Japanese was better if would be even better!! But I love it!! ^____^

Second song from the ‘My Heaven’ single entitled ‘Emotion’

It reminds me a lot of Lady GAGA‘s ‘Poker Face‘ but before you agree and figure point this song is produced by ‘RedOne‘  [RedOne production discography <– click].

Rumor has it that a english version will be released by the boys for an Europe & USA debut later this year. My view on it: hm….. Not too sure about it to be honest, just take a look at Se7en, YG didn’t do a good enough job with him though I think he had the most potential to break the western market out of the others (BoA, Utada, Wonder Girls and Rain). I think the only upper hand Big Bang has is that the song is very in trend at the moment, the world is going crazy about that style of music. Either way I will support them and will buy it!!!

[Note: I’ll blog about Wonder Girls in another blog]

Lastly Big Bang’s next Japanese single ‘Gara Gara GO!!’ (ガラガラ Go!!)’ Released 8th July 2009

Its the MV for it WOOOOOO Not sure how long it’ll work as copyright laws seem to be working a whole lot faster these days!!! The song I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE as well!!! ^____^ It sounds like a sound they would release in Korea as well but with a bit more of an edge to it. BB are ever moving forward with their music and thats why I love them!! ^____^ FAN GIRLS SCREAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

OH HOW CAN I FORGET!!!!

This is Taeyang and TOP’s song entitled ‘Friend’. An OST for the new MBC Drama ‘Friend, Our Legend’ starring Hyun Bin, Kim Min Joon and Suh Do Young.

Love this song as well!! Like I’ve mentioned aboved [BB are ever moving forward with their music] this song is so different from Lies, Sunset Glow, Gara Gara Go!! , Haru Haru, With U and etc But if you think about it all their songs are so different, they’ll never really just stick to one thing and that what I like about them!! They can pull it off as well!!
