Colbie Caillat - Try

I heard this song over the radio recently and totally in love with the lyrics. In a world where insecurities with physical looks are getting more common, it strikes a chord that really we should love ourselves more...



Lyrics
Put your make-up on
Get your nails done
Curl your hair
Run the extra mile
Keep it slim so they like you, do they like you?
Get your sexy on
Don't be shy, girl
Take it off
This is what you want, to belong, so they like you
Do you like you?
You don't have to try so hard
You don't have to, give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don't have to change a single thing
You don't have to try, try, try, try
You don't have to try, try, try, try
You don't have to try, try, try, try
You don't have to try
You don't have to try
Mm, mm
Get your shopping on, at the mall, max your credit cards
You don't have to choose, buy it all, so they like you
Do they like you?
Wait a second,
Why, should you care, what they think of you
When you're all alone, by yourself, do you like you?
Do you like you?
You don't have to try so hard
You don't have to, give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don't have to change a single thing
You don't have to try so hard
You don't have to bend until you break
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don't have to change a single thing
You don't have to try, try, try, try
You don't have to try, try, try, try
You don't have to try, try, try, try
You don't have to try
You don't have to try, try, try, try
You don't have to try, try, try, try
You don't have to try, try, try, try
You don't have to try
You don't have to try
Mm, mm
You don't have to try so hard
You don't have to, give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don't have to change a single thing
You don't have to try, try, try, try
You don't have to try, try, try, try
You don't have to try
You don't have to try
Take your make-up off
Let your hair down
Take a breath
Look into the mirror, at yourself
Don't you like you?
'Cause I like you

1 Utama Christmas Decoration 2014

It is Christmas time yet once again, and this year 1 Utama brings in Love & Joy - a animal woodland wonderland theme. The props are very simple, comprising all cutout board standees of cute animals surrounded by paper Christmas trees, and layout like from a pop up story book.



























This give lots of photo opportunities for everyone - kids and grown ups alike.


The meerkats are everywhere but my favourite animal must be the raccoons and the baby elephant on trumpet. If you have a chance to take a close up look on the flowers and trees you may just appreciate the details how they are made of crepe/tissue paper. Would love to take one of the flowers back if I had the chance :)


























Based on their recent festive decorations (including a very plain 2014 CNY decoration which I did not blog due to the birth of my baby), it becomes pretty clear 1 Utama is on a cost cutting measure. I supposed they are also trying to be different instead of the classic Christmas theme which not necessarily a bad thing, but perhaps it is good to revert back for a change :)
