Writing with Laira

Join me as I write everything about my multimedia inclinations and crazywhatnots, straight from my journal!


One Lax and Chilled August Playlist

August is my Birth month and my feels are all over that place as I get my summer vacation. Falling in love, doing chores, writing blog updates, working out and smoking as I stare at the off-white walls of my bathroom are what comprises my very long holiday. But I don’t know if I would be able to do even one of these without a musical accompaniment.

Here are some of the beautiful pieces I listen to recently.

Who wouldn’t love all these melodies these two produce? OMG! These love songs just makes me even crazier! Hahaha!


Ra.D will always be one of my favorites and I don’t think I would be able to remove his songs from my playlists. Don’t you agree?


I’m not a very big fan of EXO but this cool guy Chen made me one! Hahaha! I’m currently watching this drama (yeah, waiting for new eps sucks!) and I think I’m going crazy along with the characters! Loving it to bits!


What can I say? This rock cover rocked it! Jung Joon Young will always have a special space in my heart! He’s beyond 4D!


It might be a little old but I’ve always liked listening to this! I’ve seen them perform live in one of Jay Park’s Album Promo Tour.

Recent Ear Candies!

I’ve been listening to these lovely tracks while I’m going to work, to the gym and even while I’m just showering!

  • Some – Soyu (from Sistar) and Junggigo (feat. Lil. Boi of Geeks) – this feel-good song has a very catchy melody. It clears my head and fills it with so much love; making me want to fall in love all the more.
  • Man on Piano – YoonHan – I actually heard this song from WGM, a show where the singer appears together with an actress, So Yeon. I’m loving this very cute and affectionate couple; they are very gentle and I can sense there’s a real romance budding off-cam (or maybe that’s what I just hope).
  • Doom Da Da – T.O.P (from BigBang) – Well, what can I say? This is from the one and only “Tatatatap”! I can’t just ignore this and push it down at the very bottom of my playlists. I’m not just listening to this track when I run; I watch the MV as it jump starts my workout! Doom Da Da Divi Da!
  • Crooked – G Dragon (from BigBang) – What could be the best motivation to keep me running for the next 20 minutes? Of course, a G Dragon who keeps on singing and whining that he’ll be twisted because I left him.

October Ear-Candies

I’m either raping the play button or clicking the replay button each time I open my phone or my laptop for these 4 wonderful tracks~!

  • T Yoon Mirae’s “Touch Love” (from Master’s Sun OST) – Don’t you just want to fall in love again after hearing this?


  • Sistar’s Hyorin’s “Crazy of You” (another one from Master’s Sun OST) – who wouldn’t go crazy over So Ji Sub now? I automatically sing along now~!


  • Noel’s “Band-Aid” (from the movie Love 911) – I heard this feel-good song at the end of the movie and it was as good as Hyo Joo and Goo Soo!


  • Jung Joon Young’s “10 Minutes to Break Up” – You guys already know I love this track as it took me the very first time I heard it!

[Kpop] Jung Joon Young’s “10 Minutes to Break Up” MV


I wouldn’t have thought I would come to like this artist. I got excited when they announced that 2 new couples would appear in the latest season of We Got Married. I was teeny bit disappointed that I didn’t know who those celebs were. Then their pilot episodes aired (Thanks to Kshownow’s fast subbing).

Jung Joon Young got my interest as he showed a very unique character in the show plus Jung Yoo Mi’s very bright personality. I knew then, that they’ll be a very funny couple.  I’m now looking forward to their adventures and escapades on WGM now!

Then I saw this news from Allkpop that, Yoo Mi is starring in Joon Young’s newest MV. Who would best fit Joon Young but his on-screen wife, of course! Since it’s a project of my new favorite couple, I decided to click play and I was not disappointed.

The MV story-line was straight to the point, no clichés, just the honest message of the song. I liked how clear it was, very away from the most MV’s that tend to be symbolic. More importantly, the song touched me and it was perfect! Wonderful! Effing Beautiful! And that makes this new song my newest ear candy! Can’t stop raping the play button now! Thanks to Joon Young!

Here’s the MV, play, watch and listen!

SS5 Manila is Set!


I dont think I can get more frustrated than I am now!!!

I went to another country to get myself a better job. My parents are here with me now so I dived in into the opportunity. Getting settled in this country afters a few weeks was a piece of cake since everything is actually comfortable.

Little did I know that SS5 Manila will be so so so possible, I took the courage to get my ass here! The concert tour started and all and rumors around the SNS roamed around and that made me feel really bad already. Some more weeks later, producers confirmed that the concert will be held indeed. I was so flabbergasted and I didn’t knew what to do since my visa won’t allow me to go back to the Philippines in time for the concert. Well, in fact, missing the CN Blue concert took my misery to a whole new level.  But, come on now! This is Super Junior, the very core of my Kpop history, the reason why my fangirling heart beat every single second! And I’m definitely missing the opportunity which comes along almost once in a lifetime! This is purely torture!

Rumors of the concert happening in August came as the CN Blue concert came much nearer and nearer. I painfully accepted I won’t see Yonghwa and Jonghyun upclose after consoloing myself for over 3 months now. If I basically needed 3 months to get over CN Blue, how many months do I need to get over SuJu? I can’t even begin counting!

It was then confirmed that the prettiest flower boy, Heechul, is coming back from his military service on August 31, 2013 which is indeed my 23rd Birthday. I was so happy with the thought and that consoled me so much. It’s was like a present! My very very first bias is coming back to the limelight on my birthday! How any more meaningful can it get? After waiting for 2years in smile and agony, he’s finally coming back to his Petals.

I stayed out from any SJ tracks for so many weeks. Hearing the songs makes everything so so painful. Just imagining I won’t be able to hear it live when opportunity to do so presents itself is so fist-clenching!

Scanning through twitter today, I bumped into a tweet from one of the fanclubs I’m following. They retweeted a tweet from a producer. Now there’s a definite date! It’s happening in October 24 in Mall of Asia Arena and yeah, they might get Heechul to come to the concert as well. I froze at the announcement! This is just so heartbreaking!

I would fly back to the Philippines today if not for the pending job offers I get now. Deep breathing doesn’t take the misery away.

But I really do hope that my fellow Philippine ELFs would enjoy and do have a reat time with the boys and I’m sorry for ranting, I just can’t believe my flower boy is slipping out from my hands.
