Sia's Chandelier-An Explosively Uplifting Song

I believe by now a lot of us must have heard Sia's Chandelier right? This electropop song from Sia is taken from her sixth studio album-1000 Forms of Fear. Sia's catchy raspy voice really breathe life into the whole Chandelier; wait...after all she's the one crafted the song right? I must say this is at this time my most favourite song of the moment. It feels like it has been ages since we get to listen to such a beautiful song huh!

You'll have a hard time deciphering the song if you don't scrutinize the lyrics that Sia had penned. "Here comes the shame, here comes the shame! 1, 2, 3. 1, 2, 3 drink!" OMG! The way Sia croons over this reggae-like beat in Chandelier really sets her apart from her peers. With the booming chorus and infectious marimbas intertwining with Sia's uninhibited belting makes the whole song even more perfect! Seriously...how many divas can actually pull off their half-scream vocals and still sound sonically pleasurable? Not many right and Sia is really one of such rare singers!

The talented Sia

Chandelier is written with elements of melancholic; one that depicts the demoralization of alcoholism that usually comes typical with "party girl'. However in actual fact,  Sia's Chandelier is actually a song about her personal struggles with alcoholism and even prescription drugs. In a rare interview with Billboard, Sia said, "I was really unhappy being an artist. I was always a drinker but I didn't know I was an alcoholic. Then I got seriously addicted to Vicodin and Oxycodone." I hope she had exorcised that demon inside of her already.

Maddie-Ziegler-The girl who gives Chandelier a deeper meaning!

When I looked at the official music video of Chandelier...initially I was a bit puzzled but after pondering for a while the music video which was directed by Daniel Askill and Sia really blew my mind! Choreographed by Ryan Heffington, the 12 years old Maddie Ziegler who danced the song totally nailed the message that Sia wanted to get through to the audience. Ziegler's every graceful move and soulful glance is so meticulously captivating! I must admit that I am pleasingly in love with Ziegler's dancing-she is really in her elements! The whole choreograph has really epressed Sia's chandelier in a very beautiful, artistic way! Awesome!

Now let us listen to Sia's liberating Chandelier (if you are a drinker)

Sia's Chandelier Lyrics

Party girls don't get hurt
Can't feel anything, when will I learn
I push it down, push it down

I'm the one "for a good time call"
Phone's blowin' up, they're ringin' my doorbell
I feel the love, feel the love

[Pre-Chorus]
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
Throw 'em back, 'til I lose count

[Chorus]
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
Like it doesn't exist
I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

But I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cos I'm just holding on for tonight
Help me, I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cos I'm just holding on for tonight
On for tonight

Sun is up, I'm a mess
Gotta get out now, gotta run from this
Here comes the shame, here comes the shame

[Pre-Chorus]
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
a> 1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink

[Chorus]
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
Like it doesn't exist
I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

I love her graceful dance.

What do you think folks? Hook up your headphones and stuff your earplugs and you will understand why Sia's Chandelier is not only amazingly addicting, but it is really liberating at the same time. It's like you are in Sia's place...you don't feel any inhibition anymore. OMG! I have to admit that Sia's mystically penned Chandelier that narrates the story of a party girl with an epiphany really hits all the right notes for audiophiles like me! I am so in love with Chandelier, Sia and Ziegler! Arrgghh....I can't get enough of them. :D

One of man's greatest strength lies with our ability to evolve and the way we learn has certainly evolved as well.

My Devoted Wifey Cooks Us Dinner

Sometimes it is easy to forget how much someone has done for us; Sometimes it is easy to take for granted what someone has sacrificed for us; Sometimes...or most of the time it is easy for us just to assume that what is being done for us are something that we should expect of...This goes to show how ignorant we are with the blessings that have been endowed to us. Yours truly, is guilty of such "crime" as well. Sometimes it is easy for me to forget that my wife is really a gift from God.

 photo 01MyDevotedWifeyCooksUsDinner_zps9d7a7a1a.jpg
The place where my wife will be immediately after she is back at home.

Almost every day after work my wife will cook us dinner. After clocking her card and rushed off to the babysitter's place to pick up our babies, my wife will head home thinking about what she will be cooking for us for dinner. Once she arrived which is usually almost 7p.m, she will immediately goes to the kitchen to start preparing our dinner. I am sure my wife is very exhausted, yet she insisted on cooking for us every day. That's her unwavering dedication for us.

 photo 02MyDevotedWifeyCooksUsDinner_zps3dc0042f.jpg
Wifey wants us to eat healthy, yummy dinner every day. :)

Despite being a career woman, my wife is still very much intact to her maternal side that champions her family over herself. Now how many working women who will still cook for the family once they reach home after work at around 7p.m.? Not many; And many more rely on either their mother or mother-in-law if not their maid; Or "better still", a lot choose to eat out because it is more convenient. Another important reason why my wife insist that she cooks for us is because she wants me and our babies to eat healthy food-meals that are not peppered with MSG.

 photo 03MyDevotedWifeyCooksUsDinner_zps20892977.jpg
This is how our scrumptious dinner will look like. :D

Honestly I know I am really lucky to have someone like my wife to care for me and our family. I am really counting my blessings and I thank God for sending an angel to be my guardian, truly I do. I will always do my best to appreciate my wife for what she has done for me. My devoted wife is my superwoman! I love you wifey~Muack :-X

Networks For The Office

There are many ways to set up a network at the office, and the business must work with a third party company to handle the network. The network must run at all times, and it must not be connected to a municipal provider. The network must have support, and the business must feel free to make changes to the network as they are needed. Every business that sets up a new network needs to go through the three steps from the Network Solutions blog below to make sure their network is going to work properly.

 photo BusinessNetwork022_zpsde2187f9.jpg

The Size
The scope of the network is determined by the size of the business. The business must request a network that is going to handle their entire office. When a business is very small, they only need a small network to reach all the electronics. When a business is extremely large, it is going to need a network that is going to reach across a whole campus or several buildings. 

The Speed
The speed of the network is also determined by the size of the company. Some companies need a very fast network to make sure that they can get all their work done. The people in the office are dependent on the speed of the network, and they will find that it is very hard to get their work done if everyone in the office is using a network that is not very fast.

The Service
The service that comes with the connection is something that the business needs when things stop working. The people at the business need to be able to call for help, or they need to be able to get in touch with someone who can remotely solve their technical issues. The customer service for the network is the point in the system that keeps it working all the time.

 photo BusinessNetwork021_zps5d5bd5d5.jpg

When a business invests its money and time in a new network, it needs to make sure that it has all the items above. Each item makes the network easier to use, and the items above make it simple for the business to remain productive.
