Dear Friends,

I am posting on Blogspot.com again. As WordPress does not allow me to upload videos. I feel handicapped! I may post two sides with the same contents, only one would have video contents and the other does not!   :  (

有关張国荣

本来对張国荣一点认识都没有,虽然他曾是一名紅极一时的歌手。但今夜我却被他的名字给吸引着。国荣,正是我逝去的大弟的名字。可能就是这点相似吧。我便上网去查看他的曲目。結果,我发现自己竟然喜歡上他的那首‘风继续吹’。後来,又发现他唱另一首‘风再继续’。此曲竟成他最末一首绝唱。它的歌词都显示出他要走的最末一段路的历程。

对他的逝去,我不欲做评语。但他的生平,有部份与大弟的一生有类似之處:早逝。只是,他在走前,犹留下蛛絲马迹,让人寻覓。吾弟却是默然而逝,空留模糊的记忆。哀哉!

命若炊烟,瞬然而逝。在世者,且得珍惜每一天的日子,好好活出色彩缤纷的一生,才不会虚渡此行!

19th September 2009, I went to the Motor Show at Expo, even though the weather is not promising. The admission fees is $10.00 per person. I am not a car fan fellow. But I understand that there are models posting along with the cars at the venue. My target is to take some nice portrait as a practice.

The trip is rewarding. I captured quite a number of beautiful models. They were really pros. They knew how to post, how to kill you with a smile! This save lots of time to get things done. I spent almost an hour there to capture different models. There were some nicely designed cars too. I took a few photos of them too. The rest I was not interested.

The photos showed here were the results of this trip. They were taken with Canon G9 set on Program mode, as there was no time for me to do any adjustment.

我所认识的深圳

九日至十二日,与两友人同赴深圳一行,此行純为休闲,让脑瓜子有一个机会休息休息。所住的旅店就在东街附近:新安酒店。那里十分方便,一出酒店,吃的喝的穿的玩的,比比皆是。三人窮其數日,便在该處四周寻幽探密。有者買其像机,有者買其手袋;更有者按摩去也。各得所好,皆大歡喜。

惟一令人发恼者,乃當地人之一般行為。在人擠之處,後面走来的人,或许身有急事,往往连一声对不起也不说,硬從你身後擠过去。不然就是用手推你背後。一声不出,我还以为是身在啞吧地!问路时,也遭到如此啞子待遇;不轮是公安还是平民,大多如是。真得令人丈二金剛摸不着腦袋。维有一次,问了个拾荒者,她可真得切切实实指点迷津,令我们三个老者省了不少工夫。

总结而言,深圳依舊是个媚力十足的城市,如有机会,必会重臨。

Few days ago, I went to Shenzhen, China to relax a few days. We stayed in Sun Ann Hotel which was near ‘Dong Jia’  area, where shopping malls and eating houses were plenty. I went with two of my friends. We spent most of the time to explore that area. As a result, some of us bought camera, some bought handbags, and some chose to go a massage for relaxation.

We have not much complaint about the place, except some people’s attitude problems. People over there seems quite hush in some situations. For example, if they are in a hurry, they would just push you from the back and squeeze throw the madding crowd without saying anything; as if you are wrong to stand or walk in front of them. Another funny senario was when you tried to ask for direction, most of the time, they would only point their figure to the direction without saying a single word. At first, I thought I was in a place when everyone was drugged to mute! What a funny behavor!

On the whole, Shenzhen is still a charming place to visit. If given another opportunity, I would go back again.

My Old Singapore

These photographs were bought at a shop nearby Jalan Sultan for $10.00. All five pieces of them. Some of places have my old memories imbeded there. I believe people around my age would also have his old memory about them too.

Elizabeth Walk, Sky Theatre and Great World were the places where my mother used to bring me there to walkabout. We were very poor then, there was not much purchasing power, and we could only enjoy window shopping. We walked either from China Town to the abovementioned spots or from Selegie Road. Sometimes, she would call for trishaw and fetch us there; but it was very rare.

Odean Theatre and Capitol Theatre were my younger time dating spots. My puppy loves were developed and withered there.

Nobody Dance

This is a very youthful song and dance: Nobody Dance!

To me, in many ways, Wei Lian’s voice is a powerful magnet. The moment I heard his singing, I would be attracted to it; worst of all, I would be addicted to it. Today is a good example, I decided to video him on his Zou Chang 走唱 session. My aim is to video him for one session at Bugis Junction, and upload to my blog or FaceBook. But after listened to his first session, I got attracted to his second session at Espanade.  If not my stomach was shouting for hunger, I would have followed him for the third and fouth sessions. Anyway, I felt very satisfied by watching him in person in the performance. He is really a great ‘People Oriented’ singer!
