I was at a record store and I saw a CD by Joshua Radin. Who is he? The CD cover looks very interesting and it was in the sale for £3.00. I put it back and never thought about it at all. But after a few days later, I went back to the shop and I've decided to give it a try and purchased the album. To my surprised I love the CD.

Do you remember yesterday's music? Well I do! There are so many music I have put on (old & new) while I'm working on my DONNA SUMMER book. Just name it from the 1970s classic Bollywood songs from the film 'Julie' and 'Chalte Chalte' to Gloria Gaynor's 'I WILL SURVIVE' to my new CDs. I must say that at present CD's by Sade 'SOLDIER OF LOVE', Jamie Cullum 'THE PURSUIT', Corinne Bailey Rae 'THE SEA', Madonna 'HARD CANDY', Mariah Carey 'E=M2' to the 'SEX IN THE CITY 2 SOUNDTRACK' - are the new playlist. I have taken a break almost a week from the book project and today I'm back on track.

Wow what a day! I'm so excited... I finally found some of my music WISH LIST. Hu Raaayyyy. Thank you to Baya, my friend. She took me to the antique collectors and second hand record place. I found lots of the LP's that I wanted for so long. To name a few, Donna Summer 'LOVE TO LOVE YOU BABY' that included 'Virgin Mary' - I could not find it in the UK but I got all the way in Malaysia! Also three LP's of my friend and favourite singer Uji Rashid's 1976, 1977 and the best was 'BISIKAN HATI'. I looked at Baya and I said "Oh my... I was looking for the LP since 1988". She smiled and I got it. However 'BISIKAN HATI' condition was not very good. So my search on 'BISIKAN HATI' will continue. But I had a GREAT time out with my friend. Thank you dear old friend.
