Random stuff

Watched Jacky Cheung’s concert and was very impressed. The stage was spectacular.   I love the part where all the stars are dancing around him. At 55 years old, he still can dance and sing effortlessly.  One of the best concert I ever attended. 

Watched Survivor Game Changer.  My favourite player, Tony, is voted off.  Doesn’t like the fact that Sandra targeted him and gloated while he was gone.  Sandra acted like Russel Hantz instead of the underdog in Pearl Island. Still think that their original plan to have all the treat in one alliance is a better idea. Now, Hali Ford & Troyzan, got free passes. Meh.

Feel sick after working too hard.  My body finally protested.

On a positive note, I finally remember how to float on water.  

Memories of 2016

Joseph Schooling won Singapore first ever Olympic Gold. 🏊🏼🏅🥇

Carrot cakes. 

Euro 2016. Paris. Avignon. Marseille. 

Trucks attacked Nice and Berlin. Various other terrorist attacks in Europe. 

The US election that dragged on for too long with unsatisfactory outcome. 

Brexit

Iceland’s claps. 

Mr Nathan passed away.  RIP.

David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Prince, George Michael, Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds ~ May the Force be with you while You are Singing in the Purple Rain. Let’s dance in Freedom. Always. 

Pokemon Go. I walk and catch and hatch and evolve. 

10,000 steps every day. Rain, shine or even when I fell. 

Piano Tiles 2. 

陈国邦。相约星期二。八时入席。名门暗战。寒山潛龍。大太監。

Clear clutter. Sort of. Bye bye my TV 😢

Hold the Door. 

Youtubers – Trainer Tips, Ryan Higa, Dan and Phil. 

Rob has a Podcast. 

Business Class. 

Christmas 

Woke up to news that George Michael has passed away on Christmas. Not a good year for British stars. In Jan, David Bowie and Alan Rickman, now George Michael.  

You may not be with us this Christmas, but Last Christmas will be eternal. 

Update

Bought The Land of Stories but have not read it yet. So many distractions –

太陽的後裔 – finally watched the show. Beautiful scenery. It is a nationalistic show wrapped in a romance story. 

Piano tiles 2 – trying to get free songs every night

Work – getting busy again

八時入席 – daily show to distress

Pokemon Go ! – walked a lot, which is ok because I have been taking 10k steps most days. But soles have been aching for several months.  Really enjoying catching the different pokemon.

Bought Mayday’s 自傳 and realised no Chinese titles. 動物派對during cheered me up on the way to work.

Too many mass shootings / terrorist attacks in Nice, Paris, Munich, Japan and US.

Olympics Ceromony

Pokemon Go !

Just Rock It !

A day to remember 

Random

Hold the Door………the music is haunting when Bran realised why Hodor is Hodor. This is so far the saddest death. 

Don’t want to sleep at night, can’t wake up the next day, tell myself to sleep earlier but still sleep late => the same cycle again and again. 

On weekend, all I want to do is lie on my bed and sleep whole day. 

Feeling that I didn’t learn anything in the last few years. Work, work, work, no time to care about other stuff. Really need to take a look at widening my horizon. 

Feeling pains on the heels for the past few weeks. 

Piano tiles are my way to distress. 

After a long day at work, look forward to 畫哥與阿細,阿虹的interaction. 對小人物的日常生活比較有共鳴。

我老是莫名的恐懼,憂鬱,必須學習莫名的高興。

我們唱著的歌

終於看了這部電影。一部關於新謠的紀錄片。

這部戲見證了我的少女時代。那些年,我們一起熱愛的新謠。新謠在我生命中佔了重要位置,但我只是個聽廣播,看電視的新謠愛好者。當年,我沒錢買卡帶,也不懂得怎麼搭巴士追隨這些創作者。雖然新謠團體在好多學院非常活躍,偏偏與我的學院擦身而過。但能在新謠的光輝歲月成長,很美好。

這部戲也見證了新加坡當年建國的艱辛。一個錯誤的政策可能就一子錯,滿盤皆落。經濟起飛與國家和諧的等價交換就是一代華文教育者與教育生的人生。當年年紀小,對南大的命運難以感同身受,但也知是一代人的痛。

這部戲也見證了科技的進步。當年,沒有網絡,沒有臉書,但不阻一群音樂愛好者互相認識。當年的龍虎榜是歌曲歡迎度的重要指標。歌者得完完整整的唱歌,而不能靠電腦修音。

這部戲也見證了一群年輕人的赤子之心,一群肯給年輕人機會的媒體人。
