Tonghua!

Sunday, May 20th, 2012

Am totally in love with this song much to the damn of my family and neighbour (as i maxed the volume :p) . You can see and listen to it on youtube. The English version by Jason chen is also cool.  It’s called tonghua (Fairy tale).

Here’s the lyrics in pinyin(sorry the editor does not recognise  mandarin characters)

Wang le you duo jiu zai mei ting dao ni
Dui wo shuo ni zui ai de gu shi
Wo xiang le hen jiu wo kai shi huang le
Shi bu shi wo you zuo cuo le shen me
# Ni ku zhe dui wo shuo tong hua li dou shi pian ren de
Wo bu ke neng shi ni de wang zi
Ye xu ni bu hui dong cong ni shuo ai wo yi hou
Wo de tian kong xing xing dou liang le

* Wo yuan bian cheng tong hua li ni ai de na ge tian shi
Zhang kai shuang shou bian cheng chi bang shou hu ni
Ni yao xiang xin xiang xin wo men hui xiang tong hua gu shi li
Xin fu he kuai le shi jie ju

Repeat # and *

Wo yao bian cheng tong hua li ni ai de na ge tian shi
Zhang kai shuang shou bian cheng chi bang shou hu ni
Ni yao xiang xin xiang xin wo men hui xiang tong hua gu shi li
Xin fu he kuai le shi jie ju

Wo hui bian cheng tong hua li ni ai de na ge tian shi
Zhang kai shuang shou bian cheng chi bang shou hu ni
Ni yao xiang xin xiang xin wo men hui xiang tong hua gu shi li
Xin fu he kuai le shi jie ju

Yi qi xie wo men de jie ju

It’s a love song but is very sad. The clip on youtube features the singer and his girlfriend together. One day the girl happened to suffer from a disease and she listened to his bf’s performance on her cellphone. After the performance, she collapsed in her hospital bed. Very sad… The singer is from Malaysia and from what i understood the song was a hit in China.

Enjoy!!! Bon weekend!!!

Opera singer at 10!

Check this out. Discovered this during the JT of 1930. I could not believe my ears.

Paradis???

Saturday, July 10th, 2010

Dear viewers, have you ever wondered why during the last month, there has not been a single video clip of the official world cup 2010 song on our national station? Well this is because the guys on the censorship board and those on the national station have censored Shakira’s waka waka dance. In the next 24 hours the world cup would have officially ended and not a single  image have been broadcast on the airwaves, which by the way, we ti dimoune are paying rs 100 monthly. And we aspire to compete internationally, attract 2million tourists (yearly??)  with this narrow mindset attitude? Gimme a break. When a colleague sends me a copy of Shakira’s clip, i could not help wondering whether the national station has broadcast it. No, there has not been a single video broadcast. It was through the internet network community that i discovered the clip. I heard the song but the clip was discovered through the net. Waka waka!!!

“Paradi en dey” suffered the same fate. The documentary is about the situation of drugs in our island, and here again, there has been police arrest because the film has not been approved to be broadcast. Even after a small private viewing, the film director, Jameel Peerally and Ally Azeer have been arrested and interrogated by the CCID. More info on this arbitrary arrest here.

UPDATE: Saw the waka waka clip today on channel 3 (i think) before the soap begins.  Hopefully there will be more of it.

Taiwanese drama!

Sunday, June 27th, 2010

I got a sudden craze lately. After a friend gave me a cd containing Taiwanese drama, i suddenly became addicted to that kind of series. My first Taiwanese drama was romantic princess (Gong Zhu Xiao Mei).

Its the story about a girl who was kidnapped when she was little and adopted by a poor family. Later on her grandfather who happens to be the richest man in Asia eventually found her and Xiao Mei is suddenly propelled in a new environment, where envy, lust, love and romance co exist. I found it rather entertaining spiced with some humourous scenes. The male leads are Wu Zun ( a famous model and singer in Asia) while Angela Zhang features as the female leads. So if you like soaps and romance, then i will advise to go for it. Taiwanese dramas are at par with Western ones, quality wise and suspense but with lots of humour and hilarious scenes. The drama was aired in 2007, so am quite behind. Better late than never. So did you watch any good Taiwanese dramas lately?

Dr House returns!

Monday, May 17th, 2010

Dr House returns on local channel!! Yip yip hurrah! Season 6 of 24 ended last week to be replaced by Season 5 of Dr House.  Dr Wilson resigned after the death of Amber and Dr House used all means to convince him to stay to no avail. This Monday saw two episodes of the series. Will that recur the week after, time will know. So sit back, relax  and enjoy the 45 minute series. As always the arrogant, never like to lose protagonist will always diagnose the sickness and leave you baba…  Treatment provided explaining the cause and symptoms. Hats to the team of script writers, who will always deliver to us never heard diseases, their diagnosis and treatment.

Supernatural!

Tuesday, January 12th, 2010

Supernatural to be aired by the national station as from on Wednesday and Thursday 13th and 14th January 2010. It’s quite unusual for the national station to air consecutive episodes on the same day or even a day after, apart from an epic episode or special events. Series like CSI-NY and New York 911 have 2 episodes broadcast on the same day. I like to watch sci-fi, supernatural movies or series and hopefully would appreciate this one too. From what i gather, it seems like a demon chase like Buffy the vampire slayer. Did someone watch Supernatural? How is it?

OMG!

Just stumble on an article about Tori Spelling. You remember her?? She played in Beverly Hills 90210 as Brian Austin Green’s gf. Well, she looks scarily thin now…According to Us magazine, Tori said she feels pressure to be thin in Hollywood. Could someone confirm? Awrkkk, she looks so good before that.

Exit House, enter life!

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

Today Tuesday 27th January 2009. “Life” will be aired after the last episode of Dr House last week. Life is about the story of a detective who is given a second chance to serve the force after serving time in prison for a crime he did not commit. Charlie Crews’ (played by Damian Lewis)  new lease on life has provided him with a Zen-like outlook, peace of mind and no need for vengeance, an attitude which can be challenging to maintain when someone he cares about is threatened — or when he is investigating the mystery surrounding the murder he was falsely accused of.

Another crime solving mystery police series. Does not seem to hook me up at first sight. Am eagerly waiting for the 30th January 2009 for “Ugly Betty” to be aired.

Fushigi Yuugi!

Saturday, November 22nd, 2008

yuugi.jpgTwo high school friends, Yui Hongo  and Miaka Yuki came across a book called The Universe of the four gods when they both decided to go to the National library for their revision to enter the competitive Jonan Academy. As a result of reading the book, they are both transported into the novel’s universe. Inside the novel Miaka discovers that she is the Priestess of Suzaku and destined to gather the seven Celestial Warriors of the god Suzaku in order to summon Suzaku and obtain three wishes. She falls in love with the Celestial Warrior Tamahome, who eventually reciprocates. Miaka’s desire to use a wish to enter the high school of her choice begins to shift towards finding a way to be with Tamahome. Unfortunately, Yui, who is also drawn into the book, is quickly manipulated by the emperor of the land of Kutou into becoming the Priestess of Seiryuu and working against Miaka.

As you must have noticed, it is about love, romance, friendship and drama also. I got hooked on this manga series which is also known as Fushigi Yuugi, a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Yuu Watase. I am 3 episodes away of watching the end of the 52. Ok i reckon that i skipped some episodes for some were rather static. Worth watching and laughing guaranteed just like college fou fou fou. After that don’t know what manga to shift to.  Sigh!!!!
