张国荣, Leslie Cheung 1956-2003

昨晚,在收音机旁听到怀念他的特辑,缅怀他对香港电影及音乐的贡献和付出。今年是他逝世6周年,各地的歌影迷依然那么想念他, 分别举办不同的活动纪念他。我只想在这里留下一些自己对他的感想和心底话。

虽然我并不是他的头号粉丝,但是我觉得他是一个超棒的艺人。在我小学时代,我比较喜欢3个歌手,那就是谭咏麟、梅艳芳和他。同学们时常都谈论他们三个人的排名,无可否认,在那个时候,他们3个是最受欢迎的歌星。时常都会听到谭咏麟和张国荣的歌迷们为了他俩发生争执,闹得不欢而散。

有幸欣赏过他1997和2000年的演唱会影碟,所以对他临场的表现赞不绝口。从昨晚的特辑中,Alex San 也证实了他和Leslie曾经注意到这一个事实.他唱现场的表现往往比在录音室来得精彩。

他是天生的表演者, 从他主演过的电影里,就能证明这一点。我还未完完全全的看完他的电影, 但是却觉得他能捕捉和胜任每一个角色, 一点都不马虎。

也许他也是个不折不扣的明星,举手投足都能吸引大众的目光。他为梅艳芳的极梦幻演唱会作特别嘉宾时,他的出现引起了全场轰动。他与梅艳芳共舞, 呈现出两人之间的默契, 配合得天衣无缝。两人精彩的演出, 实属观众们的眼福。不过,我感到非常遗憾和悲伤,因为这是他俩最后一次同台演出。

想对国荣说:
感谢你的付出,带给了世人无数的欢乐,大家永远都会记得你。我们会继续宠爱你, 只因为你是独一无二的"哥哥--张国荣"。
但愿在天国的你依然是快乐地歌唱着...

和大家分享我最爱的3首歌曲, 当然他的好歌数也数不完,我只能挑选最令我动容的歌曲。

1. 左右手

曲: 叶良俊
词: 林夕
编: Gary Tong

不知道为何你会远走
不知道何时才再有对手
我的身心只适应你
没力气回头
不知道为何你会放手
只知道习惯抱你抱了太久
怕这双手一失去你
令动作颤抖
尚记得
左手这一脸温柔
来自你热暖在枕边消受
同样记得当天一脸哀求
摇着我右臂
就这样而分手
从那天起我不辨别前后
从那天起我竟调乱左右
习惯都扭转了呼吸都张不开口
你离开了却散落四周
从那天起我恋上我左手
从那天起我讨厌我右手
为何没力气去捉紧这一点火花
天高海深
有什么可拥有
留住你
别要走
无奈怎能够
除下在左右我的手扣
有爱难偷

2. 有心人

曲: 张国荣
词: 林夕
曲: 伦永亮

寂寞也挥发着馀香
原来情动正是这样
曾忘掉这种遐想
这麽超乎我想像
但愿我可以没成长
完全凭直觉觅对象
模糊地迷恋你一场
就当风雨下潮涨
如果真的太好如错看了都好
不想证实有没有过倾慕
是无力或有心像谜像戏
谁又会似我演得更好
从眉梢中感觉到
从眼角看不到
彷佛已是最直接的裸露
是无力但有心暗来明往
谁说这算是情愫

3. 追 ("金枝玉叶" 插曲)

曲: 李迪文
詞: 林夕
曲: George Leong

这一生 也在进取
这分钟 卻挂念谁
我会说 是唯独你不可失去
好风光 似幻似虛 谁明人生乐趣
我会说 为情为爱 仍然是对
谁比你重要 成功了败了也完全无重要
谁比你重要 狂风与暴雨都因你燃烧
一追再追 只想追赶生命里一分一秒 原來多踪可笑 你是真正目標
一追再追 追踪一些生活最基本需要 原來早不缺少 
有了你 即使平凡却最重要
好光阴 纵沒太多一分钟 那又如何
会与你 共同渡过 都不枉过
疯恋多 錯误更多 如能从新做过
我会说 愿能为你 提前做錯
谁比你重要 成功了败了也完全无重要
谁比你重要 狂风与暴雨都因你燃烧
一追再追 只想追赶生命里一分一秒 原來多么可笑 你是真正目標
一追再追 追踪一些生活最基本需要 原來早不缺少 
有了你 即使平凡却最重要么
只得你会叫我彷彿人群里最重要
有了你 即使沈睡了 也在笑

雨夜, Rainy Night



当天空刮起强风
渐渐布满了乌云
雷声不停的响着
接着便听到雨滴声
每一滴雨水轻敲窗旁
谱成最动人的歌曲
无奈
下雨的夜晚
带给我一些不安
那份惆怅和落寞突然牵动了我的思绪
很自然的让自己再想起你
想起你和我在一起的每一个片段
有你在身边的雨夜是充满生气
缺了你的雨天带给我无比忧郁
很想告诉你
我有多想念你
不知道远方的你是否过得安好
当敲窗的雨声逐渐朦胧
原来我已经进入梦乡了
但愿今夜能再次梦见你
幸福感顷刻间包围着我
永不散去

Spice Girls

I am watching "Spice Girls Live at Wembley Stadium" DVD that I bought few days ago while uploading their photos for my new post. I knew this band from a compilation album, named Megahit 8 in year 1996. This album contain their hit single - Wannabe, which considered to be their signature song. I like them so much because each of them has unique voice. They participate in song composing, able to produce their own hit songs and perform well in any live shows. Song arrangement is an important factor that make their songs more perfect. I used to watch their shows in television and recorded them to video tape. I also bought VCD for their movie, "Spiceworld: The Movie". However, I did not know the story of this film after watching it.

The group is consist of:

Golden Time - 5 members

In year 1997, I worked as a temporary promoter for Bonia shoes in Ocean supermarket, Kuantan. That time, my supervisor from leather department bought a cassette of Spice Girls first album, she gave me the cover of this album. Therefore, I could read the lyrics of their songs and understand the messages they wanted to pass to audiences. They promoted the equality between sexes and always use the slogan "Girl Power" whenever they appear in the public.















































4 members
Geri Halliwell left the band in 1998. The first Spice Girls single without Geri, "Goodbye" was released on 14 December 1998.

Reunion

They reform, release a greatest hits and is supported by an accompanying world tour in 2007. The album features 2 new songs, which are "Headlines (Friendship Never Ends)" and "Voodoo". That time, I was working in Manila and heard the new song in taxi while on my way to office. I felt excited and happy because I thought I would never have the chance to listen to their new songs. Media always reported that some of the group members were not willing to participate for the reunion tour.

CDs bought on 21.03.2009

I bought some CD again at Mid Valley, each of them cost me RM9.90. When I went into the music store, I saw a teen was choosing his favourite albums. After that, he went to cashier to make payment. I never thought that he would return some of his CD to the store. I guess he worried to buy too many albums. While I was selecting my album, another man also join me to choose his own album there. It is a good news for music lovers because we can buy original albums with lower price.

21.03.2009 Mid Valley

While waiting for the free shuttle bus at Mid Valley main entrance to reach Bangsar LRT station, my friend use his Sony Ericsson mobile phone, model C905 to help me capture my latest look. I like to take photo because I can refer to them when I am old in future. Thus, I can recall my younger look and various feeling that I had in the past.


Recently there are few pimples grow on my face, therefore it is better not to show my clear photo to scare you off.


My tired look after few hours walk in this complex. Last time I spent my whole day there during my university studies period. This give a hint to me - "I am getting old".

给爸爸的话

小时候
您不允许我和表哥们混在一起
跟随他们到池塘边抓鱼
但是却让哥哥去
懵懂的我
觉得您厚此薄彼
您对我说
我还不懂事
不知道天高地厚和照顾自己
您维护我像一张白纸
在您眼中我永远是
长不大的孩子
无时无刻都担忧我
依稀记得妈妈告诉过我
您曾经在喂我吃饭时狠狠地打过我
只因为我不肯乖乖地吃饭
让你失去了耐性
惹你生气
您每次吃饭时
都把菜肴留给我们
自己只吃些剩菜
您把最好的东西都留给我们
不懂得对待自己好一些
生病了也不舍得去看医生
等到再也撑不住了
才去诊疗所报到
当我上初中四那年
是青少年最反叛的时期
刚领了电单车执照
就要求您买一辆新的电单车给我
在家里向您发脾气
和您斗气
最后您拗不过我
终于答应我了
条件是我必须考到好成绩
而我为了得到梦寐以求的礼物
发奋图强
也考到有史以来最好的成绩
当您决定不买新的电单车时
我一再和您斗嘴
伤透了您的心
请原谅我的无知
对您无礼
我知道您对我付出的爱有多深
但是你不善于表达自己
会令我俩之间的隔膜加深
当我俩在通话时
您不必急于把电话交给母亲
因为我们还可以多谈几句
那一次您心脏有事
需要动小手术
我们一家人非常担心您
希望您的身体不再抱恙
我答应您
为了您
我会做一个好人
好好的孝顺您————我敬爱的父亲

Saturday, March 14, 2009

给妈妈的话

自从我呱呱坠地以来
您无微不至地照顾我
对我循循善诱
记得有一次
小学四年级
马来文测验我只拿了四十多分
刚刚及格
您严厉地把我训了一顿
还有一次
我把表姐为我做的美术作品弄肮脏了
您生气地拿起藤条鞭了我几下
我似懂非懂
但却感到非常害怕
连忙哭了起来
有一天我和姐姐发生争执
当去到姑姑的家后
您就鞭打姐姐
还罚姐姐跪在地主神位前面
我一样很软弱的哭了
那一次
自己哭得很累
睡了一觉后
才没那么辛苦
但是住在隔壁的堂姐却说是我害了姐姐受惩罚
表姐却安抚我
要我做个好孩子
不要让妈妈生气
您把我送到亲戚家学画画
我总觉得绘画需要天份
因为自己所画的图画
真的一点也不好看
出乎意料地
在六年级的时候
我竟然在学校绘画比赛中得到安慰奖
还记得那时侯的题目是”街景”
我只画了一个垃圾桶、纸箱、烂木、野草
这是我在亲戚家学到的画艺
便将它派上用场
当成绩揭晓时
我站在布告栏旁
完全不敢相信自己会成为得奖者
站在我旁边的其他学生们
都不知道为何老师会看得上我的作品
谢谢您让我在人生中
有那么一次机会拥有绘画比赛的安慰奖奖牌
您常常在亲戚面前夸奖我
就是当您拿了藤条
还未打落在我身上
我早已梨花带泪哭个不停
所以我是被您打得最少的孩子
您把无私的爱全奉献了给我
感恩的心
感谢有您
让我有勇气挑战自己
感恩的心
感谢命运安排我成为你的孩子

Funny

~Finally, this is my 100th post in my blog. Wish to bring some joy to you.~


"I am a cool and handsome painter indeed."


"Honey please, just calm down. Let me explain..."


"...I don't care who you are, Where you're from, What you did, As long as you love me.."


"Once upon a time there were 3 little pigs, so I ate them. End of story. Now go to sleep!"

Walk to Beijing office 11.09.2005

Last night, my friend told me that he couldn't recognize my look when we chatted in MSN. He claimed that my look is different after he viewed my photos here. He thought that he was chatting with another friend named "Vincent" too.

After the chat, I found out some old photos from my DVD disc. While on the way walking to Beijing office, I took some photos near my apartment. As shown in the photos, I bought the same design shirts with different color at WangFuJing. One of them is yellow color and another one is in dark blue. If I am not mistaken, this 2 shirt cost me RMB30. I found the cartoon is so cute, therefore, I wanted to own it. Whenever I wore this yellow shirt and went to crowded area, my colleagues could spot me easily because it is a noticeable color. Now, I don't know where did I put this yellow shirt. Hopefully I still able to wear it because the shirt is getting smaller in size (I am still in my growing stage, haha..).


Each block of apartment has 4 floors only. After some of my team mates returned to Malaysia, I moved to a new apartment unit and which had glass walls all around the room. My colleague then laughed and compared me to living in an fish aquarium.


There is a garden located at second floor.


Few blocks of residential apartment nearby.


I was standing at the second floor. You can see another larger garden which is located in the apartment blocks central area.


JIN BAI WAN restaurant opposite my apartment. Beside the restaurant is a barracks.

關淑怡拖7歲仔遊街 10.03.2009

收山半年全力湊仔 名店掃貨忘形凸肚 關淑怡拖7歲仔遊街
[頭條日報]

42歲的關淑怡身兼父職,獨力養大兒子關浚賢,過去大半年,關淑怡都選擇性工作,收埋自己,專心湊仔。日前,記者見懶得打扮的關淑怡拖埋兒子到中環名店掃貨,凸出胃腩任人睇的她,極速掃$4,500的性感高叉泳衣,又陪兒子選購逾千元的新波鞋,雖然兩母子一前一後,保持距離,但乖巧的賢仔全程耐心陪母,誰說單親生活有問題。

關淑怡唱功一流的確毋庸置疑,不過其神龍見首不見尾的行蹤卻令不少唱片公司高層搖頭歎息,01年以1千萬加盟BMG唱片公司,在籌備廣東碟期間卻突然失蹤,秘密往加拿大產子,之後傳出她撞邪及被銀行追6萬元卡數,雖然負面新聞不絕,但對這位玩型格的媽咪級歌手毫無影響,06年復出演唱會更叫好叫座,可惜因為難服侍,及辛苦拒絕做宣傳,令其去年的復出第二波演唱會只賣出6成飛,開騷前更要勁派3000多張飛才能填滿空位。

中年巨腩曝光

一直勁有態度的關淑怡在06時曾直認未婚產子,囝囝的父親身份雖至今仍是個謎,但7歲,身高已及母親膊頭的賢仔已長得非常靚仔,眉清目秀兼擁有跟母親一樣倔強的眼神,日前,一身型爆皮褸打扮的關淑怡,與戴覑冷帽,穿牛仔褸,一身Smart Look的囝囝及菲傭到IFC Shopping,雖然未婚產子已非秘密,但關淑怡依然好避忌,囝囝拖覑菲傭一直緊隨聽覑i-Pod的母親身後,雖然關淑怡身形一向偏瘦,但始終已42 歲,中年危機也在其身上清晰可見,其巨腩在緊身上衣下無所遁形。

戰利品人人有份

賢仔的確乖巧,跟覑母親遊走各大名店依然無半句怨言,還自得其樂地對覑鏡做表情,玩夠又坐低轁轁,Sales 姐姐看見他也忍不住在旁逗他說話。見兒子聽話,關淑怡便帶他到連卡佛買波鞋,因為賢仔生得高大,故已可穿成人細碼,兒子邊試,一臉Cool樣的媽媽不斷畀意見,而囝囝試鞋期間,關淑怡還抽空到內衣及泳衣部,對一件$4500,綴有ruffle邊的黑色高叉泳衣非常有興趣,不用15分鐘便決定買下,然後再回囝囝身邊付錢,拿覑新波鞋的囝囝難得地展現笑容,然後再繼續隨母親身後四圍去。


※日前關淑怡帶覑囝囝到中環IFC Shopping,趁囝囝試鞋期間,關淑怡抽空到內衣部,對一款性感高叉泳衣非常有興趣,不用15分鐘便買下。


※性感高叉泳衣 $4,500


※穿上緊身上衣的關淑怡,其胃腩顯得無所遁形。


※非常乖巧的賢仔,跟覑母親到處Shopping也無怨言。


※Shopping後,關淑怡(右)、囝囝(左)與菲傭拿覑戰利品離去。


※關淑怡秘密到加拿大產子之後,06年復出演唱會更叫好叫座,可惜因為拒絕做宣傳,令其去年的復出第二波演唱會只賣出6成飛。


※關淑怡對各款性感內衣也甚感興趣。

Same character & venue

While I was searching my old photos from my collection, I noticed that I had taken 4 photos at Beijing park in the evening time with different postures. I am not sure why I did so at that moment, maybe just trying to take more copies so that I can select the most satisfying photo for myself. However, I like all of the photos because each of them give me different feeling. Which of the following photos that you like most?Any comments are welcomed.
