Heart of Voh – loved it!

I am currently watching Boys Befor Flowers (Kgotboda Namja) — the Korean version of Hana Yori Dango. In one episode, the characters were having a vacation in New Caledonia. To impress Geum Jan Di (Makino Tsukushi), Goo Jun Pyo (Domyouji Tsukasa) took her on a helicopter ride to offer his “heart”. What amazed me is that, the drama featured a shot where in the was a large formation of plants perhaps that took the shape of a heart — one of the nature’s little miracles. The scene was romantic of course, but I was more amazed with the heart shaped formation. That’s why I’m posting some pictures.

I did a little research of this picture and its actually called “The Heart of Voh”. According to wikipedia, The Heart of Voh is a large formation of vegetation that resembles a heart seen from above. This sight was made popular by  Yann Arthus-Bertrand.

Meet Boyce Avenue

I was out with some friends earlier today (actually I just got home.. and I decided to post this entry). While we were sharing some drinks and listening to the songs the band was playing, a friend asked if we had heard the songs by Boyce Avenue. Since I am currently addicted to Asian stuff, I didn’t know who they were. So I asked her who that was. She then took out her phone and she made me listen to a cover of Chris Brown’s Forver. The band sounded great — and I was curious to know who they were.

When I got home about 30 minutes ago (its 4AM, Cebu time), I started doing some research about them. My friend said that they were quite famous on youtube. And that’s where I started looking for them. I was watching some of their videos and I am pretty impressed with these guys.  Imagine having about 4 million hits on one video. I googled them and found out that they were an acoustic band composed of 4 members, 3 of which are brothers. They have done quite a few covers of popula songs like Chris Brown’s Forever, Leona Lewis’ Bleeding Love and Rihanna’s Umbrella to name a few.  Most of the songs you would find on youtube are covers but they have made an album and its available on itunes. I think they are quite good based on the few songs that I have heard. I think they are one of those artists to watch out for.

Since most people may not be familiar with them (like I was before I heard their songs tonight), I am posting 2 of their videos from  youtube channel.
