American Idol Top 6 Contestants

David Cook's singing "Always Be My Baby"It has been a while since American Idol Season 7 started sometime last year. It is now only five contestants left, and just two weeks away from the Grand Finale. And they will be singing songs by Neil Diamond, who will also take part as their mentor. It is interesting to think what song choices the contestants will make, as you can also see on this site.

That reminds me of Carly Smithson who is voted off last week after the contestants performed songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber. In my opinion, she was not the one who should got voted off last week. Regardless of how human people think Brooke White is just because she is brave enough to restart her song after her first try, in my opinion she is the one who should have go home instead.

American Idol Top 8 Results Show

Last week we got another surprise from the American Idol result show, Michael Johns is going home despite people predicting him to be in the top 3 singers. Honestly though, this far into the competition it is getting quite hard to predict who is going home and who is going to stay. Although in my opinion, based on the performance, Michael is not the one who should be going home, not yet. Who should be going home then? Read the rest of this entry »

Cicipi – The Food & Dining Review

Cicipi - The Food & Dining Review PortalA couple of weeks ago, I saw an ad about Cicipi.com in Facebook. In Indonesian language, Cicipi literally means ‘to taste’. My first thought when I saw the ad was that this website must be about food. So as a person who loves to pamper his taste buds, I decided to go and paid this website a visit.

As it happened, my initial guess is quite correct, Cicipi.com is indeed a website about food. Actually to be more precise, Cicipi.com is a review portal website about Food & Dining, and also about Beauty & Spa places in and around 4 big city / area in Indonesia namely Jakarta, Bandung, Surabaya and Bali.

David Archuleta Strikes Back – American Idol Top 9

David Archuleta on American IdolYou know, using the same format for my post title about American Idol is getting repetitive. So I think why not play a little with the Title. As you can see for yourself, I think by reading the title you’ll already know who did well last night. In my opinion, David Archuleta’s rendition of Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountain Memories is his best performance to date, even better than when he sings John Lennon’s Imagine.

Overall the contestants performed okay. But a few did standout from the rest, namely David Archuleta, David Cook and Michael Johns. I love how Michael Johns improvised on his’ song choice ending. Just like Simon said, it was his best performance so far, and I agree with him. As for David Cook, I enjoyed his performance overall. Oh, I also happened to read that David Cook was taken to a hospital after last night show Read the rest of this entry »
