Music & Lyrics

今天看完Music & Lyrics 这部戏,其实我真的好久好久没静静的坐在电视前看戏了。要不是今天我有Spasm的问题,我应该会去Supermarket那里和Supervisor谈谈做Promotion的详情。

看了这部戏,真的好想“再”谈一次轰轰烈烈的恋爱。我用“再”是因为本人也有经历过一些可以拿来拍戏的恋爱故事。譬如那段父母反对恋, 还有一段第三者自杀记, 还有一次前女友的一把掌,还有一段在没办法的情况下各走各路, 还有。。。 还有。。。

其实我很多时候都会活在Music And Lyrics 里。有时,我会因为觉得一首歌的歌词符合我的故事而爱上那首歌。有时会喜欢一首歌而去做歌里歌词的事。就像我好喜欢“叶子”那首歌,很受那歌和Zing的影响,就一个人旅行, “我一个人吃饭旅行到处走走停停。。。”

小时候常听到一首“Nagasaki” 的福建歌,去到日本,明知道Nagasaki是在日本的一端,没太值得看的地方,一路上很多Backpacker都问我为什么要去Nagasaki, 我还是硬硬去了一趟,然后看着那市景,唱了一段  “Nagasaki Nagasaki, 美丽的都市。。”

从1997 年开始,每当日时坐在飞机的窗口位时,就会唱Gigi的“我要一种感觉”- “我要一片蓝天,漫无目的地飞。。。” 十多年前,和心仪的男生中秋节去赏月,过后就爱上了“城里的月亮”那首歌, 还每逢十五, 就望着月亮唱起这首歌。“城里的月光把梦照亮,请守护他身旁,若有一天能重逢,让幸福照亮整个夜晚。”唉。。。 我好纯情也。。。

今晚给我许多感觉的一首歌。。。 Way Back into Love。。。

Tree, Leaf, Wind

TREE

I had dated 5 girls when I was in Pre-U. There’s one girl who I love a lot but never dared to go after. She didn’t have a pretty face, or good figure, nor an outstanding charm. She was just an ordinary girl. I liked her. I liked her innocence, her frankness, her intelligence and her fragility. Reason for not going after her was because I felt somebody so ordinary like her was not a good match for me. She watched me going after other girls, and I have made her heart cry for 3 years. When I kissed my 2nd girlfriend, she bumped into us. She was embarrassed but smiled and said, “Go on!” before running off. The next day, her eyes were swollen like a walnut. My 4th girlfriend didn’t like her. There was once when both of them quarreled. I know that based on her character, she’s not the type that will start off the quarrel. But I still sided my girlfriend. I shouted at her and ignored her feelings then walked off with my girlfriend.

When I broke up with my 5th girlfriend, I asked her out. Later that day, I told her I had something to tell her. I told her about my breakup. Coincidentally, she has something to tell me too, about her getting together. I knew who the guy was. His pursuit for her had been the talk of the school. I didn’t show her my heartache, just smiles and best wishes. Once I reached home, I couldn’t breath. Tears rolled and I broke down. During graduation, I received a text message from her. It said,”Leaf’s departure is because of Wind’s pursuit. Or because the Tree didn’t ask her to stay…”

LEAF

During the 3 years of Pre-U, I was on very close terms with a guy as buddy kind. But when he had his 1st girlfriend, I learned a feeling I never should’ve learned – jealousy. Sourness to the extreme limit. They were only together for 2 months. When they broke up, I hid my happiness. But after a month, he got together with another girl. I liked him and I know he liked me. But why won’t he pursue me? If he really loves me, why didn’t he make the first move? Whenever he had a new girlfriend, my heart would hurt. Despite that, I still wanted to be by his side. Care for him, accompany him, love him. Hoping that one day, he will come to love me too. And because of this, I waited for him. At the end of my 3rd year, a junior pursues me. He’s like the cool and gentle wind, trying to blow off a leaf from a tree. In the end, I realized that I wanted to give this wind a small footing in my heart. I know the wind will bring the leaf to a better land.

Finally leaf left the tree, but the tree only smiled and didn’t ask the leaf to stay. “Leaf’s departure is because of Wind’s pursuit. Or because the Tree didn’t ask her to stay…”

WIND

Because I like a girl called “Leaf”. Because she’s so dependent on the tree so I have to be a gust wind, a wind that will blow her away. When I first met her, it was 1 month after I transfer to the new school.I saw a petite person looking at my seniors and me playing soccer.During ECA time, she will always be sitting there. Be it alone or with her friends, looking at him. When he talks with girls, there’s jealousy in her eyes. When he looked at her, there’s a smile in her eyes. Looking at her became my habit. Just like she likes to look at him.

The next day, I saw her at her usual place, looking at him. I walked over and smiled at her, took out a note and gave it to her. She was surprised. She looked at me, smiled, and accepts the note. The day after, she appeared and passes me a note and left. “Leaf’s heart is too heavy and the wind couldn’t blow her away”. “It’s not that leaf’s heart is too heavy. It’s simply because leaf never wants to leave the tree”. I replied her note with this statement and slowly she started to talk to me and accept my phone calls. I can’t remember how many times I have declared my love to her.Although I know she will always try to change the topic, I still bear a small ray of hope deep within me, that she will agree to be my girlfriend. And so I asked her again. I didn’t hear any reply from her over the phone. I asked, “What are you doing? How come you didn’t want to reply?” “I’m nodding my head”, she said. “Huh?” I couldn’t believe my ears.”I’m nodding my head”, she replied loudly.I hang up the phone, quickly changed, took a taxi and rushed to her place. My hands were trembling when I press the doorbell. I hugged her tightly as she opened the door.

“Leaf’s departure is because of Wind’s pursuit. Or because the Tree didn’t ask her to stay…

七`八 年前, 我与他分手后,我很常听这首萧亚轩的[吻]。

那段不该发生的恋爱,有始却没有正式的终,真的很无奈。
我们曾经为这段感情掉过泪,也对这感情下了功夫。虽然是短暂,但我们从没后悔过。
现在,我们仍然是好朋友。

数年后,见面时,我们虽然已没了男女朋友关系,但去Karaoke时,还是选了[吻]来唱,心想:他妈的,既然在冲凉时, 睡前,都唱这首歌, 唱得滚瓜烂熟了, 男主角今天在场,今天不唱,真的是很浪费!

后来唱完了,看着他,哎呀。。 香蕉人听不懂华语啦!!

如果时间能把我们的思念稀释了
从此以后互不相干各自爱着别的人
只要不遇见忽然下雨的清晨
在起床的时候 会莫名的失神

说好决定要努力忘了啊
为何还有泪停在脸颊
你身边是否还是那个她
取代我在你醒来吻你吗
取代我在你睡前吻你吗

如果当时我们都能够勇敢的承认
困为太在乎对方所以才倔强的等待着
后来每个失眠的午夜时分
还不愿意后悔 却忍不住会问

那段流着眼泪寻找解答的日子 已过去了
只是没想到爱情要 我们付出漫长想念代价

亲亲的我的宝贝

It will be so sweet if Daddy plays this song with his guitar to Mummy and the kids.  

http://blacksnail.biz/download/dearbaby.wma

亲亲的我的宝贝
我要越过高山
寻找那已失踪的太阳
寻找那已失踪的月亮

亲亲的我的宝贝
我要越过海洋
寻找那已失踪的彩虹
抓住瞬间失踪的流星

我要飞到无尽的夜空
摘颗星星作你的玩具
我要亲手触摸那月亮
还在上面写你的名字
啦啦呼啦啦啦呼啦啦
还在上面写你的名字
啦啦呼啦啦啦呼啦啦
最后还要平安回来
回来告诉你那一切
亲亲我的宝贝

我要走的世界的尽头
寻找传说已久的雪人
还要用尽我一切办法
让他学会念你的名字
啦啦呼啦啦啦呼啦啦
让他学会念你的名字
啦啦呼啦啦啦呼啦啦
最后还要平安回来
回来告诉你那一切
亲亲我的宝贝

啦啦呼啦啦啦呼啦啦
让他学会念你的名字
啦啦呼啦啦啦呼啦啦
最后还要平安回来
回来告诉你那一切
亲亲我的宝贝

Late 2007, Bruneian’s favorite the Seria Kolomee’s price increased from $1.50 to $1.80. it was quite a big thing in Brunei that time. Its not that we can’t afford 30 cents more, but over the last 30 yrs, the price is always B$1.50. even they put this in Brunei’s newspaper headlines.

Yesterday when i went to Thian Thian Chicken Rice, to my surprise, it’s B$3.2 now! 20 cents more..
Wonder if we will see this on newspaper or not.

No doubt the chicken rice is really addictive, I have to go there at least once a week!

Remember there are 3 Rs to save the planet: Recycle, Reuse and Reduce. There are a few companies in Brunei who are doing recycle in Brunei, the collect these recyclable items and recycle it. If you have any recyclable items, you can call them, and they wil pick up from you and if your things exceed certain weight, they will pay you. However, don’t expect to make a living out of recycling things.. I think we should recycle things without asking for anything back, becos recycling, is one of our human’s responsibilities.

Few locations where i found Recycle bin in Brunei:

1. Telbru- you can dump your old phone directories and other things like paper, newspaper, magazines into the same bin too. and there are 2 other bins for Aluminium Cans

2. Chung Hwa Middle School BSB – THere are 3 huge Bins at the parking area, is quite convenient, you can just stop your car beside the bins: for paper, aluminium and plastic

 3. Standard Chartered Bank of Bunut and Gadong – there are also 3 huge bins

4. PDS School – 3 bins, but i’m not sure if its convenient to drive thru it or not

bins

you may want to start dividing your rubbish into Papers, Plastic, Aluminium, can schedule yourself once a month to dump your useful rubbish into one of these public Bins. and you’ll see a better tomorrow!! Thank you!
