Writing with Laira

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.



[KDrama]Cyrano Dating Agency


I’ve seen the movie and I was intrigued what the series would be like. II wanted to see more of Jong Hyuk; I actively watch him and his son in their weekly show, “Dad, Where Are You Going?”


The series showed various stories of different people suffering from one-sided love and it made me wonder how one can be so clever to turn things around for such people. THis reminds me of one tagalog book by Ramon Bautista, “Bakit di ka crush ng crush mo?” (Why won’t your crush like you back?) where he says that if you’ve been a friendzoned, get the hint and move on! But it’s totally different in the drama; it encourages you to pursue your love and go for what you want! Absolutely confusing, isnt?


I liked how how Jong Hyuk’s character is mildly odd and how bright and cute Soo Young was; it’s the perfect combo! We sometimes want to get away from the typical stone cold guy lead and the highly energetic and noisy damsel in distress from the typical dramas. It’s very refreshing that the romance wasn’t only focused on the leads. All in all, I’m rating it 8 out of 10. The cast were fantastic, the story line is uniquely plotted and most importantly, the OST has the most fab song ever!

 If you’ve haven’t heard it, listen! You’ll never regret!
