Joanne Tseng: A Long Journey

(image credit: Shine)

I just found this clip that someone put together in regard to Joanne’s journey up until now. Well, for the most part. But it really brought back lots of memories. She had gone a long way, worked really hard, and now becoming an established artist. I’m so proud of her.

伴著盛開的花 蝴蝶才能飛舞
ban zhe sheng kai de hua   hu die cai neng fei wu
Only in the company of blossoming flowers that the butterflies could flutter
Chỉ có bên cạnh hoa nở con bướm mới có thể bay lượn
帶著希望 夢想才能飛往高處
dai zhe xi wang   meng xiang cai neng fei wang gao chu
Only carrying hope could allow for dreams to soar high
Chỉ có mang theo hy vọng mộng tưởng mới có thể bay cao
迎著溫暖的風 我們不再無助
ying zhe wen nuan de feng   wo men bu zai wu zhu
Only when facing the warm wind that we wouldn’t feel helpless anymore
Chỉ có đối mặt với gió ấm chúng ta mới không cảm thấy bất lực
因為你的祝福 我的愛不辛苦
yin wei ni de zhu fu   wo de ai bu xin ku
Because of your well-wishing, my love isn’t exhausting
Vì có lời chúc phúc của anh mà tình em không chút mệt mỏi

呼吸感動 我不再退步
hu xi gan dong   wo bu zai tui bu
Heartwarming breaths, I won’t step back again
Hít một hơi tràn đầy cảm động, tôi sẽ không lùi bước
讓音樂 趕走我的孤獨
rang yin yue   gan zou wo de gu du
Let music take away my loneliness
Hãy để cho âm nhạc làm xua đi sự cô đơn
我的勇氣 因為你的保護
wo de yong qi   yin wei ni de bao hu
My courage is due to your protection
Dũng cảm của em là nhờ sự bảo vệ của anh
bu ceng ting xia zhui zhu zhen ai de jiao bu
Never stop chasing the footsteps of true love
Đừng ngừng bước khi đang đuổi theo tình yêu chân thật

種下愛 種下夢 種下我們的心願
zhong xia ai   zhong xia meng   zhong xia wo men de xin yuan
Sowing love, sowing dreams, sowing our wishes
Gieo tình yêu, gieo giấc mộng, gieo tâm nguyện của chúng ta
讓陽光 照亮在我們心靈最深處
rang yang guang   zhao liang zai wo men xin ling zui shen chu
Let sunshine illuminate upon our innermost thoughts
Để cho ánh nắng chiếu sáng tận cùng tâm linh của chúng ta

那些事 那些歌 伴著我們的誓約
na xie shi   na xie ge   ban zhe wo men de shi yue
Those matters, those songs accompany our vows
Những chuyện đó, những bài hát đó đi cùng lời nguyền của chúng ta
不能哭 我們要 挑戰未知旅途
bu neng ku   wo men yao   tiao zhan wei zhi lu tu
Don’t cry, we will fight the unknown journeys
Đừng nên khóc, chúng ta sẽ chiến đấu những cuộc hành trình vô danh
不怕輸 我們有 笑聲交織著淚水 最勇敢的幸福
bu pa shu   wo men you   xiao sheng jiao zhi zhe lei shui   zui yong gan de xing fu
Don’t be afraid of losing, we have laughter intertwined with the tears, the bravest of happiness
Đừng sợ thua, chúng ta có tiếng cười hòa lẫn nước mắt, là một hạnh phúc dũng cảm nhứt

Green Forest, My Home: Prince William and Sophie’s Reunion


Leon and Esther had a reunion at the Sanlih Drama Awards Ceremony (華劇大賞) the other night, causing an uproar around the fandom since the drama Green Forest, My Home had aired 11 years ago. (Go here and here for articles.)


When asked about their feelings of that year regarding filming the series together, Esther expressed that she didn’t think much of it yet just followed instructions from the director. The reason they asked because Esther was only 17 years old in 2005 (when they filmed the series). Leon expressed that he was touched to have been invited back to be one of the presenters since SETTV was like his second home. He also mentioned that if there was a chance of collaborating in the future, he was excited to collaborate with the new generation, hoping to be portraying the main lead’s brother or father. (LOL!)


Happy about the reunion, both Leon and Esther had shared various links and photos on their respective Facebook accounts. Also, side note, Ady An had also returned to be one of the award presenters. She and Esther are actually good friends since they both are in An Corporation together and Esther was one of the first members to join after its establishment. (Go here for the article relating to Ady.)

I put this one on repeat for a while now and I thought I might go crazy. (NOT really, but yeah…) The strange thing is I knew it was from Green Forest, My Home yet I did not care to get the soundtrack at the beginning. Or did not look it up sooner. Now it’s not available on YesAsia anymore and I have to seek other alternatives. If anyone finds it around their location, could you please tell me? Because I’m almost desperate to get it. (Thanks!)
