Faded Rose: Chorus

跟在你左右 看每一個笑容
gen zai ni zuo you   kan mei yi ge xiao rong
Accompanying you left and right, seeing each of your smile
Theo sát bên em, nhìn thấy được từng nụ cười của em
你像個小偷 偷偷偷走我的夢
ni xiang ge xiao tou   tou tou tou zou wo de meng
You’re like a thief, secretly stealing away my dreams
Em giống như kẻ trộm, đã lén lút đánh cắp đi giấc mộng của tôi
好久沒有 這麼幸運 看見了愛
hao jiu mei you   zhe me xing yun   kan jian le ai
It has been so long since I’ve been this lucky to see love
Đã lâu lắm rồi tôi mới được hên như vậy mà gặp được tình yêu

I love U 這不是祕密 早握在我手心
i love you   zhe bu shi mi mi   zao wo zai wo shou xin
I love you! It’s no secret that it’s already within my hands
Tôi yêu em! Đó không phải là bí mật vì nó đã sớm nằm trong tầm tay của tôi rồi
加了點雲加點甜蜜做成一道彩虹
jia le dian yun jia dian tian mi zuo cheng yi dao cai hong
Add a patch of cloud and a drop of honey to make a rainbow
Thêm vào một cụm mây và một giọt mật ong để kết thành cầu vồng
看見你正在看著我 連時針分針都忘了轉動
kan jian ni zheng zai kan zhe wo   lian shi zhen fen zhen dou wang le zhuan dong
Seeing you looking at me, even the hour and second hands have forgotten to turn
Thấy được em đang ngắm nhìn tôi, ngay cả kim đồng hồ cũng đã quên chuyển động

老天保佑 KEEP ON LOVING U
lao tian bao you   keep on loving you
Heaven blessed me to keep on loving you
Trời cao phù hộ cho tôi để mà tiếp tục yêu em
拿 一顆心 一課意 深深愛你
na   yi ke xin   yi ke yi   shen shen ai ni
Using one heart and one thought to love you deeply
Dùng một tấm lòng và một ý niệm để mà yêu em một cách sâu đậm
就這樣 KEEP ON LOVING U
jiu zhe yang   keep on loving you
Just like that to keep on loving you
Cứ như vậy mà tiếp tục yêu em
愛 給了你 給了我 一次深深不後悔的決定
ai   ge le ni   gei le wo   yi ci shen shen bu hou hui de jue ding
Love has given you, given me a profound opportunity of a decision that will not be regretted
Tình yêu đã đem lại cho em, đem lại cho anh một lựa chọn sâu sắc mà ta sẽ không hối hận

你 不得不信 這 一定是天意
ni   bu de bu xin   zhe   yi ding shi tian yi
You shouldn’t doubt that this is all Heaven’s will
Em không thể không tin rằng đó là ý trời
在這茫茫人海竟然和你心電感應
zai zhe mang mang ren hai jing ran he ni xin dian gan ying
That you and I have this telepathic connection within this vast sea of people
Bất ngờ rằng trong biển người mênh mông, đôi ta lại có thể tâm linh cảm ứng với nhau
看見你也正看著我 這多麼不可思議的奇遇
kan jian ni ye zheng kan zhe wo   zhe duo me bu ke si yi de qi yu
Seeing that you’re also looking at me, this unfathomable fortuitous meeting
Thấy được em cũng đang nhìn vào tôi, đây đúng là một cuộc kỳ ngộ

老天保佑 KEEP ON LOVING U
lao tian bao you keep on loving you
Heaven blessed me to keep on loving you
Trời cao phù hộ cho tôi để mà tiếp tục yêu em
拿 一顆心 一課意 深深愛你
na yi ke xin yi ke yi shen shen ai ni
Using one heart and one thought to love you deeply
Dùng một tấm lòng và một ý niệm để mà yêu em một cách sâu đậm
就這樣 KEEP ON LOVING U
jiu zhe yang keep on loving you
Just like that to keep on loving you
Cứ như vậy mà tiếp tục yêu em
愛 給了你 給了我 一次深深不後悔的決定
ai ge le ni gei le wo yi ci shen shen bu hou hui de jue ding
Love has given you, given me a profound opportunity of a decision that will not be regretted
Tình yêu đã đem lại cho em, đem lại cho anh một lựa chọn sâu sắc mà ta sẽ không hối hận

只要轉身我們可能錯過那愛情
zhi yao zhuan shen wo men ke neng cuo guo na ai qing
If we turned around, we could have missed this chance of love
Chúng ta chỉ cần quay mình thôi thì có lẽ đã bỏ lỡ cuộc tình này
錯過彼此相愛的運氣
cuo guo bi ci xiang ai de yun qi
We could have missed the chance of loving each other
Đôi ta có lẽ đã bỏ lỡ một thời yêu nhau
老天保佑我 做你的Angel
lao tian bao you wo   zuo ni de angel
Heaven blessed me to be your angel
Trời cao phù hộ cho tôi để làm thiên sứ của em
一直在 守護著那愛情 I’m loving U
yi zhi zai   shou hu zhe na ai qing   i’m loving you
To keep on protecting this love, I’m loving you
Để tiếp tục mà bảo vệ cuộc tình này, tôi sẽ tiếp tục yêu em

Oh 天保佑 KEEP ON LOVING U
oh   tian bao you   keep on loving you
Oh, Heaven blessed me to keep on loving you
Ôi, trời cao phù hộ cho tôi để mà tiếp tục yêu em
Oh 我愛你 你愛我 一次夠不夠
oh   wo ai ni   ni ai wo   yi ci gou bu gou
Oh, I love you, you love me. Just once, is that enough?
Ôi, tôi yêu em, em yêu tôi. Chỉ một lần thôi, có đủ không?
這樣 KEEP ON LOVING U
zhe yang   keep on loving you
Just like that to keep on loving you
Cứ như vậy mà tiếp tục yêu em
Oh 就是你 就是我 己深深的愛過就是你
oh   jiu shi ni   jiu shi wo   ji shen shen de ai guo jiu shi ni
Oh, it’s you, it’s me. It’s you who I have loved so deeply
Ôi, chính là em, chính là tôi. Em chính là người mà tôi yêu một cách sâu đậm

Year 2015 in Recap

year_review

Oh joy, I’m bringing this back since it’s another year of madness. How did it go? Let’s check the number first, lol. Yes, before I start bragging and realized it wasn’t worth bragging over, lol. But before I actually go into the stats, I would like to thank The New World and iHero for making some of the impossibles happen. Because if it wasn’t for the dramas, I wouldn’t have updated so much or kept it so consistent for the better half of the year. Also, anyone wanting to check out the stat report from WordPress, click here.

Total Posts in 2015: 365 (35% of all time). Yes, I took a challenge of trying to keep up posts for 365 days SO had to brag here. It wasn’t easy and some posts were less impressing than others. However, I think it was already tough that I managed it all year long. For this year, will I be continuing on this pattern? I want to but I would say no. Since quality trumps quantity so I’ll still be updating, still be my random self at times, but I won’t force it as an everyday thing. If it happens, it happens. Now, moving on to the breakdown of different categories.

poll_collage2
Times Updated on People on the Poll
: 284 (78% of overall). I took out Ady and Hu Ge early on so I didn’t feel like I needed to include them in this section. Anyway, because I did the 365-day challenge, everyone benefited–one way or another. However, Achel had a surge, leaving Jun Ya behind with only 22 posts, because Wallace, Joanne, Bianca, and Jacky ended up having more posts than him for the year. That knocked him off top 5 for the year yet didn’t damage his overall record too much. Talking about that, he was the reason why I held off so long of not publishing this post since I needed to calculate some of the posts again. Yet I decided to gamble and take out some and possibly double back next year to correct it all. Oh yeah, I didn’t count general updates for some people, especially those with higher numbers already.
Wallace Huo: 26 (9% of the year)
Janine Chang: 16 (6%)
Vic Chou: 12 (4%)
Joanne Zeng: 25 (9%)
Nicholas Teo: 18 (6%)
Xiu Jie Kai: 12 (4%)
Angela Chang: 12 (4%)
Zhao Jun Ya: 22 (8%)
Yvonne Yao: 7 (2%)
Penny Lin: 16 (6%)
Achel Chang/ Zhang Xin Yu: 34 (12%)
Sophia Chou: 6 (2%)
Ruby Lin: 16 (6%)
Van Fan: 9 (3%)
Eric Suen: 5 (2%)
Bianca Bai: 25 (9%)
Jacky Chu: 23 (8%)

Books Reviews:

Music Reviews:

Movies + TV Series Reviews/Episode Summaries: I will say that I was both proud and also a bit ashamed, because I was cheating for several dramas by inserting placeholders. I was trying to motivate myself to watch faster and/or fill the spaces yet things got in the way and I fell behind once again.

Fan Fiction:

Songs Translations: I think that it was too obvious that it was a Phil Chang year for me. Yes, I love that guy. Okay, mostly his songs, lol. But he is funny. Getting back to this, totally outdone myself on some levels. Overall, I translated 51 songs. OMG, that’s like major achievement for me in this area. The previous year, I only did 12, but that was because I didn’t really take it as a challenge. I think this number will drop the upcoming year since I won’t be forcing myself to update every day.

Chinese: 46

Vietnamese: 5

Side Updates: 130 posts – My randomness seriously has gone way past normal. I didn’t count some of the side stuffs. But The New World and iHero obviously dominated the scene for the beginning of the year.

For this year, I hope to bring out more quality posts, like I said earlier. I also hope to finish up the placeholder posts that I haven’t previously. Wish me luck and see you all next year!

Angel Lover, Bianca Bai, Ehlo Huang, Jacky Chu, Taiwanese Entertainment

Angel Lover OST

Old, but I still want to talk about it, considering how much I love the TV drama itself.

  1. Angel’s Intro. A suitable start for the soundtrack. Calm and soothing, as should regarding to angels. It had a sense of security within it.

  2. Discover True Love (發現真愛) by Ming Dao, Jacky Chu, and Ehlo Huang (明道+祝釩剛+黃玉榮). A powerful song and a good choice for the main theme of the drama. All three guys harmonized nicely with one another and created a very lively feeling.

  3. We Will Fly (夢.飛翔). Instrumental. A mixture of hopefulness and power.

  4. Falling (壁入). Instrumental. Haunting and projecting a feeling of uncertainty.

  5. No Regrets for Loving You (不後悔的決定) by Ming Dao and Jacky Chu (明道+祝釩剛). A fun and heartwarming song.

6. Seeing Love (看見愛). Instrumental. This is the tone down, guitar version of the main theme. Still powerful in a sense but created a calmer feeling.

  1. Can’t Return To That Beautiful Time (回不到那些美好時光). Instrumental. This is the string version of track #10/18. Nice and smooth just by itself.

  2. Open Your Eyes (張開雙眼). Instrumental. This is the uplifting version of the main theme.

  3. Can We Try? (可以重新再來嗎?). Instrumental. Another version of track #10/18. This is the wind instruments version of it.

  4. Eraser in the Head (腦海的橡皮擦) by Ehlo Huang (黃玉榮). Ehlo gets to sing alone for this song. Well deserved too. At first, I swear he sounded like Jacky. Yet if listened to more carefully, it’s him all right.

  5. How Are You? (你好不好?). Instrumental version of track #16.

12. Forgotten Promise (被遺忘的承諾). Instrumental. This is the piano version of track #10/18.

  1. Starting to Understand (開始明白). Instrumental. This is the soft piano version of the main theme.

  2. Afraid of Darkness (怕黑) by Bianca Bai (白歆惠). Surprised yet a very good and heartbreaking song. Bianca’s voice is nice and clear. It creates a very haunting feeling as fit with the song’s theme.

  3. Forever Yours (永遠的愛). Instrumental. String version of the main theme.

  4. Forgotten (遺忘) by Ming Dao and Ehlo Huang (明道+黃玉榮). The ending theme of the drama. The guys harmonized nicely here. Ehlo brought out the powerful yet tragic side of the song while Ming Dao contributed the sullen feeling of it.

  5. Close Your Eyes (閉上眼). Instrumental. Another version of the main theme YET I feel like I hit a confusion wall where I couldn’t distinguish between different versions anymore. LOL!

  6. Make A New Start (從頭) by Ming Dao, Ehlo Huang, and Jacky Chu (明道+黃玉榮+祝釩剛). This is the same song as track 10, but I’m not even sure why they have different song titles for it. Not that I’m complaining that there are two versions, lol. Just curious. Although the main theme (that all three of them sang together) was upbeat and this one sad, but the guys harmonized so nicely. Like there was a doubt since they’ve been in the same band for a while now.

1. Discover True Love MV (發現真愛). Nice, powerful MV, just like the song itself. The designs of the background were suitable for the song itself. There were also scenes from the drama merged in at times.

  1. Forgotten MV (遺忘). Although Jacky didn’t participate vocally for this song but he was in the MV. I actually like the live version I listened to years back with Jacky taking over some of the main parts more. That’s just because I’m bias, lol. But honestly, I loved the background designed for the MV, suitable with the drama itself. There were also scenes from the drama vamped into the MV as well.

  2. No Regrets For Loving You MV (不後悔的決定). Ehlo didn’t sing but appeared in the MV like how it was with Jacky for the other song. The MV was as lively as the song projected in the vocal version.

  3. Make A New Start MV (從頭). A dark, sullen MV as expected. Again, some scenes from the drama were included in the MV. There were errors for some of the lyrics. It made a lot of us laughed after spotting it, but what was done had already been done. Other than that, another nice theme for the MV itself.

All in all, a very good soundtrack for the drama itself. A very nice album to have for the collection, especially if you’re a 183 Club fan. Although I loved the soundtrack, which was obvious with my comments throughout. However, what puzzled me to no end was not including Alex To for the soundtrack. Seriously? Even Bianca got to sing. (And I like her!) Other than that, awesome soundtrack!
