I bet you heard about Lady Gaga and her hit Poker Face, me and hubs already have LSS (last song syndrome) hearing this over and over on the radio being played everyday. I admit this electropop song has a nice tune to it and she has good voice too. Not that I am fond of it but it's fun to hear it once in a while.

So what is really a poker face? Based on what I found when I googled for the meaning it says "A face lacking any interpretable expression, as that of an expert poker player." I don't really know how to play poker so I am lost with the poker face thingie. All I know, it's a card game with betting and the expectation of the game can be based on the players' actions, gestures, expressions... basically psychology. Maybe that explains why there's a need to be poker face so you can't be read directly by your opponents. I still can't understand how the game goes so I need to check out any poker videos, poker tools or even poker odd charts to understand more about it. I've been hearing FIL lately wanting to bring us to casino just for fun, maybe it will be good to know more about the game if ever he'll force us to tag along.

  4. Ayie Says:

  5. Ice Says:

    I like some of Lady Gaga's songs but not all of them. Some are quite catchy. They make you sing it the whole day :o)

  6. suituapui Says:

    First time I heard the song, there were parts that I thought sounded like Boney M. I prefer her second hit - Papparazzi...dunno how to spell it! LOL!!!

  7. Ayie Says:


    I heard some of her other tunes too, she made it very catchy. That's why I mentioned the last song syndroome! hehehe

  8. Ayie Says:


    I heard that sone several times but I am more familiar with poker face. I've been hearing it more often, that's why. Lol, nevermind the spelling as long as we understood each other! haha

  9. Jean Says:

    yea too many times on the radio..haha..i also got bored wit it

    A smile from SJ =)

  10. Ayie Says:

  11. lina Says:

    Her tunes are what I'll hear at the gym. :D

  12. Ayie Says:


    Morning!! Does it get you to the groove? =P

  13. Haha..that's true. People with poker face are hard to predict when playing poker.

  14. Ayie Says:


    So you play poker?

  15. I don't know how to play, so I don't have poker face, and I have heard of those words before!

  16. Ayie Says:


    Could be the song? I don't think I'll be good with this even if I learn how to play. Simple bluff game I was caught red handed bluffing! haha!

  17. Carver Says:

    A poker face is good in situations where you don't want someone to know what you're thinking or feeling.

  18. Unknown Says:

    interesting info. poker face dont sound that bad afterall lol

  19. Ayie Says:


    For me it's hard to conceal things most esp some kind of bluff or lies. Not that I'm very predictable, I'm just too transparent I think! haha

  20. Ayie Says:


    Maybe on certain situations being a poker face can help. Thanks for the visit.

  21. Gattina Says:

    I haven't played and nobody called me ever a "Poker face" ! My husband loves poker but not for real money that's too dangerous and to be a good poker player you have also to be a good actor and never show any feelings on your face !

  22. [SK] Says:

    yeah that was a nice song indeed, po-po-po-po-po-po-po-poker face!! it just got stuck in my mind for quite sometime before i can get rid of it out of my mind.. haha.. but now her new song bad romance is in~~ :D

  23. ladyviral Says:

    I just ofund out about her when a news of her was on the paper saying she went to erm... perform for the Queen or something hahaha!

    Poker face? i don't even know how to play poker :P.

  24. Bengbeng Says:

  25. Mariuca Says:

  26. Mariuca Says:

    I love poker sweetie! But it's been so long since I last played I too need to brush up on my skills... :)

  27. foongpc Says:

    Hi Ayie! Not spamming Lina's blog today? Haha! Guess what! There's an anonymous commenter on my blog who says I'm retarded for spamming comments and he/she spammed my blog! You can read his comments at my post here.

  28. foongpc Says:

    Oh! I love lady Gaga's songs especially Poker Face! Nice song although I think she's too overhyped : )

  29. foongpc Says:

    Hmmm, it's nice to have a poker face actually. Then people cannot see through you if you are trying to hide something from them! LOL!

  30. Ayie Says:


    That's why I don't think I can be so good with poker sometimes people can read through me. Maybe if I will play that for real then I'll be forced to have poker face =P

  31. Ayie Says:


    I always laugh when hubs all of a sudden blurts out the song!

  32. Ayie Says:


    She's all over US now and i think it's for her tour that queen performance thing. I also can't play poker =P

  33. Ayie Says:


    It's good and bad not being able to hide our expressions sometimes =)

  34. Ayie Says:


    Hi sweetie! Then a poker tutorial is better from you then! haha!

    Thanks so much, hubs is excited too.

  35. Ayie Says:


    Was still doing something so a little late today =)

    About that anonymous commenter, leave him/her be... everybody's entitles to do as they please most esp if it's being appreciate on the other end. Anyways we only do that to people we are comfortable with, blogger friends I should say.

    As for poker face, it can be beneficial to be like this on certain situations.

  36. levian Says:

    i had been listening to the song on the radio a lot recently too. but same like you, i don't know how poker goes. but i am kinda lazy trying to understand it the last time i tried. :p the music however, is pretty catchy. :)

  37. Dora Says:

    I have a "crush" over Lady Gaga!

  38. Ayie Says:


    The tune just makes you sing with it along

  39. Ayie Says:
