B1A4 걸어 본다 (Tried to walk)

This is one of the prettiest videos I have seen. I am not a flower girl but I really loved the gardens and the whole meaning of the video/song. If you care to know what the meaning/story of the song you can read the lyrics here

B1A4 In The Wind

It is here. Finally here. After two weeks of waiting for my album it finally arrived. I am a happy BANA. I pre ordered the album just in case it went sold out. I am still missing the poster but it shold be arriving on Monday or Tuesday. I already made a review of the album here. I'm also thrilled cause I got CNU's photo card. Now I'm only missing Gongchan's card and I can say I god a different one from every album they have done. I only have Baro "repeated" cause his photo card came on their Japanese full album 1 -which you can check out here-.

It looks so gorgeous and I loved the photo book. I tried to take a video of the photo album. Not sure if it will help at all but there it is. I hope you enjoy it. I'm also waiting for a dustcap for my cellphone and the Star1 magazine where they just come out. those should be home around my birthday... date.

Carrot Cake.

Happy Thanksgiving! This year I'm celebrating the holiday with some friends so we will be house hopping visiting them. Parents are out on vacation so it makes no sense to do a full dinner for 2, right? Since we are going to a friends house and my friend mom loves carrot cake I decided I would make one and give it to her for the whole dinner thing. It is the first time I do a carrot cake. 

I added 2 grated carrots. 1 tbs of cinnamon, 1/2 cup of raisins and 1/2 of pecans to a box of carrot cake mix with all the ingredients the box asks. The frosting is those that you buy on the super market so nothing special there. I did melted it on the microwave for around 10 sec and repeated until it got all liquid so I could spread it over the cake. Also I did some caramelized pecans with raisins and place it over the cake. Well here is the result.

Tried To Walk

I tried to walk but B1A4 didn't let me. Why? Cause their new album is so awesome that I couldn't just stand up keep up with life. Yes! It is that good. A total different look on the boys from head to toes. Jinyoung abandoned his wine red hair and came back with a jet black hair. Baro now haves cotton candy hair. Shinwoo CNU had brown hair with some blondish stripes on the sides but not anymore now he is back to black hair. Yey!

On this concept they really look older and grown up... they still young but they don't look childish like on their other production. They are all wearing darker shades (blacks browns beiges strong black and white plaids and so on). Actually I am having a hard time with this comeback cause they all look so dashing and fresh. Their cover is far off from what we are used it. It actually haves a more natural look as you where walking around the forest while dreaming and you find this 5 gorgeous kids wondering around. Something along this lines.

The mini album haves 8 new songs (but 2 of them are instrumentals -걸어 본다 (Tried to Walk) (Inst.)-  and the other one is -(Intro) In the Wind- therefore I'm not reviewing them). With that explained I shall tell you which songs for me are the best on the whole mini album as a whole for all audiences.

  • 걸어 본다 (Tried to Walk)
    Is Jinyoung's work and he did an so well on this one. It is really different from what we are used to. The boys are more mature the whole lyric and composition about a heartbreak is great. You can actually noticed the guys have been working hard on their singing classes and studying hard. Totally paid off on this one. Do pay attention to the song. I will post the video at the end of the review.
  • Be My Girl
    Does things to me that I can't explain. Jinyoung's solo on this album and it is AMAZING. Never thought the sweet leader would come up with such a needy and wanting song. He really wants the girl as in craving her. Whole another concept for the guys which shows that in fact they are leaving their childhood behind and becoming adults. I can't deal with the song. This song also features JeA from Brown Eyed Girls is the other part of the track that makes it work so wonderful. Very harmonious both of them and I would love to see a video of this just for the fun of it.
  • 뭐 할래요  (What you want to do) and In The Air 
    Are the "fun" songs that remind us of the happy and that B1A4 is known for. They will make you dance and "put your hands in the air and fall in the sky" believe me. Song for those moments when you need to cheer up. This two will do wonders whenever needed. 뭐 할래요  (What you want to do) features Shina-E from Humming Urban Stereo

Actually just listen to the whole album.. The other songs If... (너만 있으면) and 나쁜 짓 안 할게요 (Narr. (수지) Suzy of Miss A) (which for me is after the title song my PERSONAL favorite because Shinwoo sings a lot here. Totally biased I know) are good and you should not skip them when they are playing you will end up loving them.

XMas in advance.

This year I put the XMas tree super early. best choice I ever made I feel all XMaish now... so that is all I can say about it. Since Sondag is a very curious cat I went really simple and the tree is 4 foot tall so I can't go overboard. It looks cute and all so that is all that matters to me. To think I can't stand the holiday and now I'll have the tree up to February 2013.

Oyasumi Goodnight & [1]

B1A4 spent the whole summer on their debut in Japan. They came out with 2 singles (Beautiful Target and Oyasumi Goodnight) and 1 full album which is titled [1]. This update is about Oyasumi Goodnight and [1]. Each of the albums (singles and full albums) had 3 versions. Beautiful Target Version 3 is sold out and I wont be able to buy it since there are no more copies available... same thing happen with the full album [1] Version B there is NONE available either. Total sold out.

Since I knew I couldn't afford all the 9 copies of the summer release I just got all the regular versions of them. that way I wouldn't feel way behind on having my full collection. You might be asking why have all the 9 albums... well every version is different. Some had new songs, dvds and goodies that the regular versions didn't had. That's why as a fan you want to have all of them.

Here are the photos of my albums. Yey! I was so happy when I opened them. Also today their 3rd Korean Mini Album "In the wind" comes out and I already pre-order it. It should be home for my birthday. It comes with the album, poster, photo card and the 82pages photo book. I've only seen the cover but I am really excited cause it looks EPIC. The guys from Rainbow Bus does awesome art work for them so I'm always looking forward to what they come up with.
