Awards - TVB Star Awards Malaysia 2017 Winners Thoughts and Opinions

Image
Hello everyone,
This post is for the TVB Star Awards Malaysia 2017. We are going to be providing our thoughts and opinions on this awards show!  


My Favourite TVB Variety Programme: The Sisterhood Travelling Gang
Thoughts: We didn't watch this show so we don't have much to say but their friend group is getting a lot of publicity these days. Can't believe TVB even made a show out of it.
My Favourite TVB Enrichment Programme: All Things Girl Malaysia Edition
Thoughts: Again, we didn't watch this show so we have no thoughts on it. In general, we would say the info/variety shows have lowered in its quality so we haven't felt compelled to see any of them and if we had the free time, we would rather watch other shows. 
My Favourite TVB Host In Variety Programme: Maria Cordero (Maria’s Auspicious Recipes)
Thoughts: In the past, we have seen Maria Cadero host cooking shows (Cheap Clean Eats series) and she's been pretty entertaining with Luk Ho-Ming. But we haven't seen…

CeeJay's Pick of the Month (November) - Kayee Tam - New Releases 小堡壘, 花森林

Image
Heyo!

It's another end of the month (crazy, right?), and today, we are introducing two new releases from Voice Ent. singer, Kayee Tam (譚嘉儀). 
In context of Kayee's recent role in the drama, The Exorcist Meter, these two songs seem to reflect the childish innocence of her character as a doll. 
The first song is "小堡壘", which is a story about how this girl found her small "fortress" in which she feels like a princess after meeting someone, and how she is forced to let go of this place, since her lover has already left, and it no longer represents the same thing. The MV takes place at an amusement park with Kayee reliving the memories of her and a man who is no longer with her. It's a sad song that is enhanced with Kayee's soft vocals and a decent chorus.


曲: 譚嘉儀 / 譚耀倫 詞: 譚嘉儀 / 譚耀倫 編: 譚耀倫 / Soya Lee 監: 譚嘉儀 / 譚耀倫 / Soya Lee
離別了怎可拉近 迴盪夢裡亦算最真 不懂得捉你心 懂一個人熱吻 只需你的音韻
留在我的小堡壘 尋覓護蔭是我所須 不需得到允許 分手也可再聚 然而我從沒半點的心虛
人若要走 留住當初心動不要太內疚 這是留住你的魔法 也是重遇你的方法
是我手 能捕捉這心動 長年被私有 看…

CeeJay's Pick of the Month (October) - 雷深如 (J.Arie) - 無神論

Happy Halloween!!!!!

We are introducing another song today by J.Arie. To be frank, there weren't any new songs that really stood out to us this month. This was the song that was better than a lot of the new releases. This is the first time we have introduced J.Arie on our song posts because we only listen one or two songs from her.

The intro is a bit weird - it kind of gives off an eerie feel (which is suitable for Halloween haha), but the chorus sounds better and makes it easy to get into the song. Then after the chorus is sung once, the music becomes weird again...but she did compose it herself, so that deserves credit. Overall, the song doesn't flow together too well, but the chorus is like the normal HK pop.

The music video is unnecessary and doesn't do anything to enhance the music. Also, we're not digging J.Arie's hair which also looks unbrushed. There's also randomly a girl who dances in the video which doesn't really make sense to us. We suggest not…

My Favourite TVB Drama Theme Song: "Forgot Myself" - Hana Kuk (Line Walker: The Prelude)
Thoughts: It's pretty impressive how this is Hana's first year singing TVB theme songs, and she already gets an award for singing. We are pretty happy with this choice, since there weren't necessarily too many great and outstanding theme songs this year. This was a good ending theme song, and we appreciate how it wasn't overplayed in the drama so we could get a chance to ac…
