The last couple of weeks we’ve been working on a new song. It’s about a young man who feels lost in life, and who decides to go sell his soul in exchange for a -hopefully- better life. Of course, magic doesn’t always turn out the way you want it to. We imagine this story to take place in a poor, small, rainy and dirty city around the year 1800. We hope you like the song!
You can also check out what our song looks like on the computer, quite complicated eh? And of course, we couldn’t help ourselves and gave the voices colors. The bright pink and red parts belong to Elvi (piano) and Jade’s lines are the softer pink ones (main vocals). All the rest is.. well.. All the rest!
And say, who would that yellow track belong to? Well, no one else but our first guest star: Andreas Somville! He’s quite the creative whirlwind and on top of that, he has an amazing voice. He has his own youtube channel on which he posts his own narrated versions of popular songs. It’s really funny.. Also -for those who are interested in it- he reviews games.

Anyway, without further ado,
here is our new song!

Hi to all!
Because it’s getting colder and colder, that doesn’t mean we aren’t allowed to wear colorful clothes anymore. At least, that’s what WE think! We both like to wear lots of colors (did you notice tiny is NEVER wearing black clothes?).
Here’s an example of us both wearing ‘summerclothes’ but combined with warm leggings and coats, what do you think? We won’t let the cold get to us!

In a galaxy far far away…
It was nerd themed day! Hey that rhymes! Our first theme is ‘nerd’ and we’re both sporting the nerd look in our own way. Jade is wearing a power rangers t-shirt, and an R2D2 (Star Wars) skirt. To perfect the look, she’s wearing a cute heart printed headband and strawberry printed ballerinas. Also, she’s holding a Tank Girl comic book (which she adores). Elvi is wearing a really nerdy pink shirt and a typical schoolgirl skirt. To finish off the look she added some pink kitten earrings and our adorable Tall and tiny music notebook. We love this look! As a girl, it’s really fun to combine the nerd look with cuteness! And we think we pulled that off pretty nicely, don’t you?

Just another day at school yesterday. One of our classes was cancelled and that gave us some time off which made us so happy! Elvi had her friend Lara from the Netherlands coming over and they had a great time together! Check out a picture of them dancing together below!
Also, about our outfits, when Elvi arrived at school Jade instantly said she reminded her of Cruella de Vil of Dodie Smith’s 1956 novel and Disney’s 1961 animated film adaptation: ‘The Hundred and One Dalmatians’. In the movie she looks awful though, which obviously Elvi doens’t. Elvi looked like what Cruella would have looked like if she was a nice woman. Two weeks ago Jade and her boyfriend watched the Disney movie while they each had one of their dogs on their lap. One of them was sleeping like a princess and the other one (the puppy) was actually looking at the television and responding to the dogs’ barking. When the dogs barked her eyes became so big! You can see it in a picture below, it’s adorable!
Disney movies are timeless aren’t they? As are our outfits sometimes, I mean come on we could have totally rocked these looks a couple of decades ago! Don’t you agree? Scroll all the way down to see us in an ‘old looking’ picture!
Check out today’s outfits, do you like them? Jade borrowed Elvi’s nail polish and she loves it because it has the same color as actual jade. Pretty, right? Also, the skirt she is wearing is the same red skirt she wears all the time, turned inside out. Isn’t it great when you can use one piece of clothing in different ways? Elvi’s sneakers are also special because she dyed them herself with paint. Now they have this really deep purple color. Beautiful! Unfortunately, Jade was feeling a little sick today and at the spot where we take our pictures it’s always really cold! So in the first picture below you can see her shivering and waiting for Elvi. Kind of cute, no?
We went to the library for school today. It’s really a lot of work, finding something in those ‘full of tiny Chinese characters’ books. But, eventually, we managed to finish our assignments so we’re very happy! We actually have a beautiful library. It’s really old and is full of beautiful statues and stuff. We take such things for granted because it’s stuff you get used to so quickly, but it’s really really beautiful!

ps: Jade’s boyfriend’s 8 year old little sister had her nails done by a friend and they were so pretty! Jade took a picture of them. Scroll all the way down to check it out!
Yesterday one of our friends turned 20 and we went to her birthday party. It was really fun! Before going to the party we let our friend Lai Yan braid our hair (she’s so darn good at it!). Then, at the party, we played some games together which was a lot of fun. We played a game called ‘werewolves’ where someone secretly gets picked as the werewolf and kills someone (this is obviously all fictitious), and then everyone has to have a discussion about who in the group could have been the werewolf. Tall and tiny weren’t playing as a team, because we kept blaming each other! It’s a compliment really, we just consider each other good actresses. However, in the end, we were both innocent! Silly.. Jade also baked a pie which was delicious! Mmm chocolatey goodness!
We also recorded a happy birthday message for the birthday girl in between two classes. In Chinese, it’s: “祝你生日快乐” which you pronounce as “Zhù nǐ shēngrì kuàilè” You see, no matter how different cultures are, almost everyone knows this song. ; )
Last but not least, we had a ‘knitting get together’ with our friends a while ago and forgot to mention it and post pictures! It was actually a surprise birthday party for another friend of ours (a lot of birthdays nowadays!). We cooked dinner together, ate cake pops (yum), ate cake (there was a lot of food, you see) and knitted together. It was super cozy! We added the pictures from that day below as well. ; )
Love, Tall and tiny
ps: a new song is in the making and we have a special guest in this one! xx
Here’s a quick update with some ‘old’ pics. We always take a lot of pictures, but sometimes we forget to post them 🙂 Tomorrow the start of a new week, with loads of schoolwork to do.. But we’ll have a small b-day party from one of our friends tomorrow, so that’s something nice to look out to!
Have you listened to our latest song? (a cover of Sinatra’s my way, me made it ‘OUR WAY’!) Listen to it HERE!
Tall & tiny
One of our last posts was called ‘our way’, referring to the way we write our songs. A friend of ours commented on our facebook page, saying: “I would have at least expected a link to you two singing ‘My Way’ with this.” And loyal to our fans as we are, we recorded that for him today. ; ) So there you go!
We both felt a little off yesterday, so Elvi rested at home a little and Jade wore her boyfriend’s sweater (so comfortable..). We also had to make an assignment for school and dear god it was hard! We had to look up this tiny Chinese character in an ancient Chinese atlas. Finding it was so difficult!!
The weekend is almost there, so we’re very happy : )

PS: remember we said we’d (try to) translate to Chinese sometimes? Well we did!
周末快要到了，所以我们很高兴 ： ）
