Starry Starry Sky 满天星

Inle Lake

I recently got to know of this song “满天星” from my very talented friend Kai Yang, who also happens to be the lyricist. It was love at first hearing, and my heart began to beat to the melody. 感触好多哦。。心好久没这种感觉了。I found myself listening to it over and over again…and falling in love with the lyrics. Although it sounds too good to be true, if a man sang this song to me, I may just melt like a snowman (I’m useless, I know lol).

I am pretty sure most of us have imagined and yearned for the perfect love, the type that makes us do silly things and promised the whole galaxy to a loved one. But how many of these dreams actually come true, and how many of these do go on to be happily ever-after? I wonder. 每个人都期望过谈一段轰轰烈烈的爱情,但又有多少人能实现愿望呢?即使实现了,又有多少个能白头到老?

As I grow older – and hopefully wiser without the white hair – I realise that rather than the drama-mama love stories which usually flickr off faster than a firefly, the best type of love are those with no expectations, no big words of eternal declaration nor promises too big to keep. It’s the type of love where you can spot him amongst a sea of people, feel his heart beat for you amongst the thunderous footsteps of humanity, and where there is mutual respect for each other. He may not have the face of Brad Pitt, the wit of Barack Obama nor the bod of Hugh Jackman,  but he is the one who shines brightly, because of you. And that’s a keeper. :) Have you found your shining star yet? 与其不切实际的爱,倒不如找一个为你而光芒的爱。。他每个心跳,每个微笑,都因你而灿烂。在茫茫人海中,你找到属于你那颗星星了吗?

Photography – 人情味 Human Touch

人情味
香港比肩继踵;人情味更重

People say Hong Kong is full of two things – people and neon signboards – which were aptly captured in a signboard I spotted at Yau Ma Tei. I was attracted by the many “人” (man)  on it. I used to be quite scared of the Hong Kong people cos’ they were curt and I was forever getting scolded at restaurants for being too slow in saying out my orders.

This has changed over time, and I have grown to love the boisterousness of the whole atmosphere; Hong Kongers are not rude by nature, they are just conditioned to operate in very quick-moving environments with little tolerance for indecisiveness which slows down their workflow. In fact, the people I have met on my recent trip were all very friendly, and I do not even get scolded for taking their photos – some even posing for me! I grow to love this country a little more with every trip here :)

天啊。Oh sky.

Golden Pig at Avenue of Stars, Hong KongThis gold piggy at the Avenue of Stars clearly expressed the exasperation of tourists currently in Hong Kong…we have been here for 4 days, and it has rained for 4 days – where did all the water come from?! A very different Hong Kong, nonetheless filled with happy moments :)

imageMorale of the story: when things don’t go your way, don’t sit around and mope…learn to dance in the rain instead, make merry & the most of your time! :)

A Rainy Hong Kong

image

I'm dreaming of sunny days

People say “贵人招风雨” (important people will bring with them rain – water is prosperity) which must be true cos’ it rained non-stop for two days when I arrived in Hong Kong :D It still couldn’t dampen my spirit to seek adventures in a country which I call my second home :)

image

It rained so much the rain warning changed from yellow(torrential rain) to red(heavy rain) to black(seriously heavy rain that you can don’t go to work – until it stops)within a night. The steps at the Mid-Levels escalator turned into mini-waterfalls lol. Yesh, we were out in the rain and taking in a scene we haven’t seen in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong, I’m glad to be back :)
