曲終人散 by 張宇 (Phil Chang Yu)

Didn’t I tell you that songs by Chang Yu were addictive?! Sharing another masterpiece, 曲終人散, which I had on repeat this morning while driving to work, matches today’s gloomy and rainy weather. I love how each song has its own story and so much emotional is illustrated through Chang Yu – heart-aching, sorrow and affection.

曲: 曲終人散 (Song Title: Song Ends, People Scatter)
作詞:十一郎 (Lyricist: Shi Yi Lang)
作曲:張宇 (Composer: Phil Chang Yu)
編曲:屠潁 (Arranger: Tu Ying)

Chinese and English Lyrics:
The moment you let him place a ring on your finger
I became aware of the complicated smile on your face
那原本該是我 付予你的承諾
That was originally what I’d promised to give you
Now, I could only make myself invisible within the lively atmosphere

The moment I congratulated you along with the others
Only you knew how many cups of wine I drank
I shouldn’t see you anymore
Even a glimpse more would cause pain
Even if I secretly know that you would turn around again Continue reading →

一個人的天荒地老 by 張宇 (Phil Chang Yu)

I came across Phil Chang Yu (張宇) a few days ago while watching an episode of 《谁是大歌神 – The Hidden Singer》 who is a famous Taiwanese singer and composer. Many oldies like me are quite familiar with his songs that were used numerous of Taiwanese TV series and movies. It was a great trip down memory lane and he is still amazing and talented as always. It has been ages since I heard any music produced from the island and quite happy to dig through my CD collection or rather do a search on Youtube. I adore the majority from his discography, but will share one of my favorites today, 一個人的天荒地老. A soulful ballad with a beautiful melody, the desiring and yearning emotions are skillfully expressed through Chang Yu’s lovely and soothing vocals. The passion, the anguish and the sadness-ness are convened elegantly through its lyrics, which are written by his wife that uses pen name, Xiao Huiwen (十一郎). They are certainly an invincible pair with over 100+ songs under their belt. Also if you’re interested in watching any of the episodes, they are available on China Zhejiang Youtube Channel.

曲: 一個人的天荒地老 (Song Title: Eternity of a Person)
作詞:十一郎 (Lyricist: Shi Yi Lang)
作曲:張宇 (Composer: Phil Chang Yu)
編曲:涂惠源 (Arranger: Michael Tu)


Chinese and English Lyrics:

已經對坐了一夜 恐怕天色就要亮了
Sitting alone facing the night, fearing that morning would arrive
我開始有點明白 我們的愛也要散了
I’m starting to understand a little that our love should also scatter
妳像過去那樣走來 緊緊用雙手將我環繞
You’re just like the past, taking a step forward, preparing to use your hands to envelop me
妳的溫柔其實如刀 要我還妳怎樣的笑
Your gentleness is actually like a knife, how could I smile in return?

我明明都知道 這將是最後的擁抱
I actually already know that it was the last embrace
妳給我一個圈套 我不能跳不能遁逃
The trap you gave me, I couldn’t jump or escape from it Continue reading →

GOT7’s Jackson Wang

My newfound obsession, Jackson Wang from GOT7. Hehe…they are getting younger and younger. This cutie pie has been on my radar for some time now since his casting on Korean reality show, Roommates Season 2. He is always spreading his laughter and positive energy no matter which show he is on. His musical talent and athletic-ness are unparalleled, and even his slight aloofness is found to be adorable and joyful. His lack of knowledge on Korean and Chinese culture can be quite astonishing at times.

I find it incredible that he was from Hong Kong (being a fellow Cantonese), debuted in South Korean only two years ago and how his popularity soared within the last few months. His cute face can be found on many networks in South Korean and China, mainly on variety/reality shows.:D Jackson is a natural on TV, he is always hardworking and confident of his abilities, willingness to learn, as well as, respectful and sweet toward elders and seniors from the entertainment industry. Wishing him the best in everything and may happiness be with him always! XD

Pied Piper

Excellent and intense drama with an amazing cast, especially Shin Ha Kyun, love his acting and charismatic smile. Definitely a gem you don’t want to miss.


Summary from Viki
Every day on the job is tense, dangerous and possibly lethal! But the dangerous situations are diffused without using force by the expert negotiator Joo Sung Chan (Shin Ha Kyun), who leads the police department’s negotiation task force. The team handles the most dangerous, volatile and high-risk situations that jeopardize the lives of innocent people. Hostage crises, terrorist threats and other major catastrophes await Sung Chan, Yeo Myung Ha (Jo Yoon Hee) and the other highly skilled team of negotiators when they come into work every day. Son Hee Sung (Yoo Joon Sang) is a thorn in their side as an aggressive broadcast journalist who tries to report on the many coverage-worthy events. “Pied Piper” is a 2016 South Korean drama series directed by Kim Hong Sun.
