The Music of Love Story

Fan art photo by @cocorain0614
When I found that picture of Rain circulating around the internet, I remembered his song Love Story. Well, he might be singing that song in that photo. His suit is similar to the one he wore in the music video. However, more than the singer, I noticed his background. We see a group of violinists.

Usually, when I listen to songs, I only hear the overall sound produced by the rhythm of the instruments. I can't name the various musical equipment employed in the song. If the singer's voice is dominant in the composition, I tend to overlook the background music.

I know that Love Story is an RnB song with elements of jazz, ballad, and pop. I pondered on whether there were violins accompanying the melody. So I listened to it one more time, paying more attention to the background music than before. Click the video below to hear the song. 



Woah! The sound of violins are in there, accompanied with a piano in the midst of RnB percussion. I found that amazing because I thought such instruments were only meant for classical music. The composers of Love Story are geniusesHearing piano and violin in a modern song is a totally new experience to me! 

As it turns out, there is more to a song than the voice and emotions. I will pay closer attention to Rain's songs, or any other RnB song for that matter, as I might be amazed at the kind of sounds that I will discover. 

And...I was right! That photo is from Rain's live performance of Love Story -an RnB song with violin and piano!

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

Presenting The Starbucks 2014 Planner

There are a lot of 2014 planners available out there. For this post, let me share with you the 2014 Starbucks Planner. Every December, people are talking about it! The cover and the layouts are something to look forward to, as well. For this year, it came in four colors: yellow, magenta, brown, and black. The black one is the Philippine edition ( hmmm, tempting! ). I'm very much impressed because the cover feels like leather.  I will feature the magenta one. My friend owns this. I already have a planner for 2014, owning another doesn't make sense at all. Hehehe ~ So, I decided to take some photos of it and share what's inside. (^_^) Left: the box, Right: the planner.  The cover is embossed with coffee icons and Starbucks coffee blend logos. I noticed the symbol for their coffee Sumatra and the elephant icon for Kenya. The 2014 Starbucks Planner in magenta I saw the symbol of the Starbucks coffee blend Sumatra embossed on it. Here is a really cute featur
