黑白配

Here’s another excellent song (fantastic words) & MV from Fan Wei Qi. Fan Fan wrote the song for her boyfriend, Hei Ren.

For those who don’t know, her boyfriend was a Taiwanese professional basketballer, who became a compere after injuries forced him to quit professional basketball (but i heard that he might be going back to play competitively). I can’t remember his real name now but his nickname is Hei Ren (‘cos he’s very tanned)… and hence the name of this song.

The MTV

Some Concert

Here are the beautiful lyrics:
太阳晒的我眼睛睁不开(The glare of the sun makes it difficult to open my eyes)
你的好脾气 (Your good temper)
让我心情坏不起来 (Will not allow my mood to become bad)
下雨下的我眼神发呆 (The pouring rain makes me stare blankly)
你的道歉 (Your apologies)
听着听着我都快要笑出来 (As I listen to them, they make me want to laugh)

谁说不能黑白配 (Who said that black & white cannot be a match)
世界上没有什么事 (There is nothing in this world)
能够如此的绝对 (That is more certain than this)
曾经有人这样唱过 (Someone once sang before)
白天它不懂夜的黑 (The “white” of day does not know the “black” of night)
你却懂得我的美 (But you know my beauty)

有时候我会感觉非常累 (Sometimes I feel very tired)
有时候也会不知觉把你拖累 (Unknowingly, i make you feel tired too)
你有时会说我们不配 (Sometimes you’ll say that we’re not compatible)
只要能依偎 (As long as we can assume?? – i can’t translate this)
真的真的我什么都无所谓 (Truly I don’t mind anything at all)

谁说不能黑白配 (Who said that black & white cannot be a match)
世界上没有什么事 (There is nothing in this world)
能够如此的绝对 (That is more certain than this)
曾经有人这样唱过 (Someone once sang before)
白天它不懂夜的黑 (The “white” of day does not know the “black” of night)
你却懂得我的美 (But you know my beauty)

钢琴也是黑白键 (The piano is also made of black & white)
一样能看出我对你 (Similarly you can tell toward you I feel)
只有满满的感谢 (Only full of gratefulness)
也许黑永远不明白 (Perhaps black will never understand)
在这个彩色的世界 (In this colourful world)
有你我才会存在 (I exist only because of you)

Fickle-Minded

Re-configured my blog yet again… sigh. I simply cannot decide whether to make this blog an outright public one (i.e. with my photos splashed all over), or a pseudo-private one (remove all photographic evidence and “deny everything” ala X-Files). After all, for eons, no one knew the identity of the mysterious & infamous UptownGal!! (A lot of people from some forums i used to visit were guessing my identity for years. Yes, years. No kidding.)

Unfortunately / fortunately, a lot of people know about this blog now… from my friends, to my colleagues, and even my bf’s friends / colleagues. And of ‘cos, if u know where to dig, u’ll definitely find out the owner of any website. While i enjoy having this site read by people, i’m also disturbed by it. Let’s just say that i need an escape route!

So… the page with my photos on it has been password protected. Friends / cellgroup mates / colleagues… u can email me for the password if u wanna see egoistic shots of myself in HK & LA.

As for posts that are password protected, these are only meant for my bf, my good friends, and my cellgroup members’ eyes only.

Okie… let’s see how long i last with this configuration of my blog…

Point of View

In everything, there are always several perspectives to consider. Here’s something i received in my email on how different countries view Zidane’s headbutting of Materazzi…
