Let It Go (Disney's Frozen) Sung with Angel Voices

I absolutely love the sound of a children's choir. It produces an angelic sound that is just so pleasing and soothing to the ears. I chanced upon this version of the popular song "Let It Go" from the animated Disney movie Frozen on Facebook earlier today, and I must say, among all the versions that I've heard, this is my absolute favorite. The choir, the arrangement, the percussions, the effects, Lexi Walker (the lead singer), Alex Boye (the Ice King) and the setting, all perfect! Watch below and let me know what you think? Which version of the song is your favorite?

Foggy Day

Happy Cloudy Tuesday, everyone!

As some of you may know, me and hubby both work from home.  Our schedules are far from normal, but this gives us the privilege to spend more time with our li'l boy.  We all have days when we feel really lazy, and for most of you, it'd either be a Saturday or a Sunday.  For me, though, its today, Tuesday.  Blame it on a very hectic Monday.  I have a report to submit every Monday, and the procrastinator in me like finishing it the very same day.  So when Tuesday comes, my brain just shuts down.  It's like its telling me its on its day-off.  Oh well.  LOL!

By the way, Newsroom's third episode aired last Sunday and will be watching it in a few.  The story just keeps getting better and better!

And oh, remember the dual-monitor I mentioned in my previous post.  Sadly, one of 'em died on me last night. :(  I'm still gonna ask my brother if this is but temporary and can be fixed, or if hubby and I already need to bury and part with it forever.  *sigh*

Sorry for the rambling, this really happens when my mind needs to be woken up.  Composing something forces it to work and with a dose of coffee, I'll be on work mode in a bit.  Hope Tuesday's going well for you! :)

TV: The Newsroom

When I work, I need something to keep me awake. Coffee is absolutely a must, but since I'm breastfeeding our li'l boy, I am limited to only 2 cups a day. (Sad, I know!) What keeps me up is watching a tv series on my other monitor. Since NCIS, NCIS: LA, Hawaii 5-0, Person of Interest and Body of Proof on a break till Fall, I needed to look for other TV Series to accompany me during my work hours. Enter HBO's newest series, The Newsroom

From the mind of Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing and screenwriter of The Social Network and Moneyball, comes The Newsroom, a behind-the-scenes look at the people who make a nightly cable-news program. Focusing on a network anchor (played by Jeff Daniels), his new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), the newsroom staff (John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel) and their boss (Sam Waterston), the series tracks their quixotic mission to do the news well in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles-not to mention their own personal entanglements. - HBO
Firstly, the mere mention of Jeff Daniel's (IMDB) name is music to my ears. I absolutely love this guy! He is such a versatile and effective actor. 
Jeff Daniels as Will McAvoy

Secondly, HBO is really known for producing quality tv series and mini-series. (Hello, Sex and the City and Entourage?) So when I saw it online, I knew I just had to watch it. I initially saw only 2 episodes as the series just started airing about three weeks ago, June 24th to be exact, and it definitely did not disappoint. The acting is superb, the characters are just fab, and the storyline is fascinating!

And remember the guy who played the lead in the movie "Slumdog Millionaire"? He is part of this show as well. 
Dev Patel as Neal Sampat

If you are looking for more reasons why you should watch this series, here's another one: the show has earned decent ratings that HBO already renewed it for Season 2, shortly after the 2nd episode has been aired.

The Newsroom airs every Sunday, 10pm ET on HBO (US). The series has not been picked up yet by HBO Asia, but I am sure it will be soon. For now, you can try watching it online. :)

Wow!  It's been months since I last updated this space.  Work has been sooooooo busy, and between the jobs and taking care of the fam, I just was not able to find the time to blog.  But after watching an episode of "United Stats of America", I realized that I need to find time to do the things I love in order to be more productive.  United Stats of America is a show aired in the History Channel, hosted by twins Randy and Jason Sklar.  The show basically tackles interesting stats in American History.  The Sklar twins are stand-up comedians, so they bring humor to a documentary show, making it fun and educational.

Their fourth episode tackled time, how to save time, how to waste time, how to be more/less productive, and even ways on how to extend our life.  They featured a marketing firm called Red Ventures, one of the most successful firms in the US, based in the Fort Mill, SC.  Red Ventures have been voted as one of the best places to work in Charlotte, NC.  They play basketball during work hours, and shoot foam guns during their breaks.  Their reason, breaks of all sorts makes one more productive.  Studies reveal that one cannot concentrate on a task for more than 90 minutes.  You need to take a break after this time period, else productivity drops.  Would you believe that 12 minutes per hour of goofing off actually increases ones productivity by 9 percent?  Crazy, huh?  And happy workers are 50% more productive than unhappy ones!

So basically, what I want to do from hereon is to spend more time in this blog in an attempt to add more to my productivity.  Sounds counterproductive?  Hehehe.  But you now, based on what has been explained above, that it's not.

Oh well, breaktime over.  Need to go back to work.  Till next post.  Ciao! ;)
