Must be Happy

Hebe - Hai Yao Xing Fu (Must Be Happy)

You know what? I have not listened to Cantonese/Mandarin pop songs since I left for NZ. The only Chinese songs that I like are oldies (<90s). But somehow the tune of this Chinese song attracted my fussy ears, which then sent signals to my fingers to search for the translation. As usual, this is a heartbreak love song, but I really like the lyrics, because it is similar to my penning.

The beat is just nice to me because I can not tolerate song beats which is slower than moderato. And the melody is quite melancholic, which suits the mood of heartbroken. The beginning has gentle guitar chords, and later more percussion instruments are added. I thought the transition and the whole composition was simple and not too overwhelmed, and really appreciate that I could hear the singer's voice clearly compared to other songs the voice is drowned. Surprisingly, I noticed many Chinese singers both female and male have high-pitch voice just like
Hebe.

Anyways, here is the translation of the lyrics. Hope you guys like this song too.

If you're not sure, then don't use your kisses
Feelings can easily destroy a person
After love has faded, if one is not ruthless enough, lingering feelings can be cruel

The mess that you've left behind,
day by day, I'll eventually get clear it all up
I even genuinely wish, with all my heart,
that you'll find forever before I do

You must find your happiness,
don't ever let anyone else shed tears for you
All the wrongs and mistakes should end along with me,
leave me, and just remember what we had in our hearts

You must be happy,
so I can be sure that I've given it my all,
so I can be sure that I won't take up more pages in your story
From tomorrow onwards,
this all will end

Return my spare key, goodbyes can be innocent
I even sincerely wish, with all my heart, that you'll find forever before I do

You must find your happiness,
don't ever let anyone else shed tears for you
All the wrongs and mistakes should end along with me,
leave me, and just remember what we had in our hearts

You must be happy,
so I can be sure that I've given it my all,
so I can be sure that I won't take up more pages in your story
From tomorrow onwards,
this all will end

If you're really happy,
I need not reply to your text message sent at midnight
Because you have found someone to share your sorrows and joys
And I'll be able to have the purest form of loneliness

Conan the Barber

And yes, I just did.

Don't you think my calling name really reflects what Conan is? I'm pretty sure he inspires a lot of young people to mimic his hairstyle. The only thing is I'm not impressed with his haircutting skills.

Oh well, I'm just not impressed with the movie at all. That's all.

And yes. Renaye just gibbered.

Sale madness!
Sunday, August 28, 2011
I went into a skincare retail shop last week because they were having member's special sale. And you won't believe that the total bill of the customers were between RM500 to Rm1000, and I was the only one in the queue that only purchased RM293 worth of products. The promoter asked me to buy something additional to bring my total to RM350 so I would be entitled a free 2 haagen daze scoop voucher. But I didn't even bother. Why would I want to buy something additional for about RM60 just to get a 2 scoop Haagen Daze ice cream which only cost like RM30?

Nah. Not falling for this kind of gimmick anymore.

Not here, kitty!
Thursday, August 25, 2011
I was rudely awaken in the morning while I was napping in the bus. The bus was still not far away from my house, but the driver was honking several times and I didn't know what was he honking at. The cars in front of him have crossed the traffic light, but ours was still stationary. And he kept honking. I was amused, and wanted to say 'are you honking at some invisible thing?'. Then later, he got down from the bus and went 'shoo shoo' a few times. And still I didn't see what was he shooing. A few minutes later, I saw a kitten running to the roadside. Its eyes were wide and it was hunching. I felt like calming it, and somehow pitied the kitten which wanted to cross the road, but it's just impossible with the heavy traffic. The driver could run over it, but he didn't; that was very kind of him.

I was lucky to sit in front of the bus, if not, I would not have seen the frightened kitten. I'm now just wondering how the kitten is doing. I really hope it will be fine. Maybe I should ask the driver to bring the kitten into the bus....

Across~
Wednesday, August 24, 2011
I finally found out what interview my colleague mysteriously attended a few weeks ago. As usual, everyone in my office knew except me. In fact, I was the last person, again, to know this stale news, that is my colleague who sits beside me will be transferred to another department. That explains her anxiety, nervousness and diligence in researching possible interview questions. I remembered asking her what were those questions for, but she just simply replied 'gotla.'

Oh well, a colleague has just left last month, and now followed by another one. 2011 is my third year in my present company, and I wonder if I'm being too comfortable with my current job. The question whether I'm still growing or not in terms of personal development has been floating in my mind recently. And I seriously don't know what the answer is. If I were to change, is there any other job where I would be able to interact with NGOs and other humans? I like the interaction I get at my work place amidst all those office politics.

But somehow I know it's time to move on as well. That will be after my masters. I'm planning to get Permanent head Damage in the environmental field. Oh well, let's see how it goes!

Wish me all the best!
