Lyricist: He Hou Hua (何厚華)
Composer: Chen Wei Quan (陳威全)
Key:
Bold = Chinese
Blue = Pin Yin
Ash Blue = English
Royal Blue = Vietnamese
像青天的一把傘
xiang qing tian de yi ba san
Like an umbrella of the clear sky
Giống như là một cái dù của trời xanh
靜靜躺在某個地方
jing jing tang zai mou ge di fang
Silently lying at one place
Lặng lẽ nằm tại một nơi nào đó
我不是沒有翅膀
wo bu shi mei you chi bang
It’s not that I don’t have wings
Tôi không phải không có cánh
只是忘了怎麼飛翔
zhi shi wang le zen me fei xiang
It’s just that I have forgotten how to fly
Chỉ là tôi đã quên làm sao để mà bay lượn
試著窺探的目光
shi zhe kui tan de mu guang
The eyes are trying to peep
Đôi mắt đang cố gắng nhìn trộm
和你之間隔著一片海洋
he ni zhi jian ge zhe yi pian hai yang
Our connection is separated by an ocean
Giữa chúng ta đang chia cách một đại dương
只能用思念灌溉著憂傷
zhi neng yong si nian guan gai zhe you shang
We could only use thoughts to irrigate grief
Chúng ta chỉ có thể dùng ý tưởng để tưới lên nỗi đau thương
就讓我的心 一片一片慢慢的撕裂
jiu rang wo de xin   yi pian yi pian man man de si lie
Just let my heart slowly rip apart piece by piece
Cứ để tim tôi từ từ từng mảnh từng mảnh mà tan nát đi
就讓我的夢 一點又一點被粉碎
jiu rang wo de meng   yi dian you yi dian bei fen sui
Just let my dream shatter bit by bit
Cứ để giấc mộng của tôi từng chút từng chút mà vỡ ra đi
不需要求饒 我想除了你
bu xu yao qiu rao   wo xiang chu le ni
Don’t beg for forgiveness, I don’t want anyone else but you
Đừng cầu xin được tha thứ, tôi không muốn ai ngoài em ra
沒有人能解圍
mei you ren neng jie wei
No one else could resolve this obstacle
Không ai khác có thể giải vây được
就算誰人性將愛摧毀
jiu suan shui ren xing jiang ai cui hui
Even if whose humanity will destroy love
Cho dù nhân tính của ai đó sẽ phá tan đi tình yêu
到我的世界 只剩下卑微
dao wo de shi jie   zhi sheng xia bei wei
Reaching my world, the only things left are petty and low
Đến thế giới của tôi, chỉ còn lại những gì nhỏ bé
你也不會看見 我掉過一滴淚
ni ye bu hui kan jian   wo diao guo yi di lei
You also wouldn’t see me shedding a drop of tear
Em cũng sẽ không nhìn thấy được tôi nhỏ một giột lệ nào
(music)
在愛裡跌跌撞撞
zai ai li die die zhuang zhuang
Staggering along in a relationship
Lảo đảo đi trong tình yêu
誰規定就該要習慣
shui gui ding jiu gai yao xi guan
Who formulated that it becomes a habit?
Ai quy định rằng nó nên trở thành thói quen?
卻等到學會遺忘
que deng dao xue hui yi wang
Yet waiting until I’ve learned how to forget
Nhưng đợi tới khi tôi đã học được lãng quên
才能笑說別來無恙
cai neng xiao shuo bie lai wu yang
That I could smile and say that you’ve been well since we last met
Tôi mới có thể cười và nói rằng hy vọng em vẫn khỏe sau lần chia tay
經過多少的時光
jing guo duo shao de shi guang
Having gone through many eras
Trải qua bao nhiêu thời gian
我們之間依然隔著海洋
wo men zhi jian yi ran ge zhe hai yang
Our connection is still separated by an ocean
Giữa chúng ta đang chia cách một đại dương
是否能原諒曾經的荒唐
shi fou neng yuan liang ceng jing de huang tang
Could we forgive one another’s past absurdity?
Chúng ta có thể tha thứ sự hoang đường của đối phương không?
就讓我的心 一片一片慢慢的撕裂
jiu rang wo de xin   yi pian yi pian man man de si lie
Just let my heart slowly rip apart piece by piece
Cứ để tim tôi từ từ từng mảnh từng mảnh mà tan nát đi
就讓我的夢 一點又一點被粉碎
jiu rang wo de meng   yi dian you yi dian bei fen sui
Just let my dream shatter bit by bit
Cứ để giấc mộng của tôi từng chút từng chút mà vỡ ra đi
不需要求饒 我想除了你
bu xu yao qiu rao   wo xiang chu le ni
Don’t beg for forgiveness, I don’t want anyone else but you
Đừng cầu xin được tha thứ, tôi không muốn ai ngoài em ra
沒有人能解圍
mei you ren neng jie wei
No one else could resolve this obstacle
Không ai khác có thể giải vây được
就算誰人性將愛摧毀
jiu suan shui ren xing jiang ai cui hui
Even if whose humanity will destroy love
Cho dù nhân tính của ai đó sẽ phá tan đi tình yêu
到我的世界 只剩下卑微
dao wo de shi jie   zhi sheng xia bei wei
Reaching my world, the only things left are petty and low
Đến thế giới của tôi, chỉ còn lại những gì nhỏ bé
你也不會看見 我掉過一滴淚
ni ye bu hui kan jian   wo diao guo yi di lei
You also wouldn’t see me shedding a drop of tear
Em cũng sẽ không nhìn thấy được tôi nhỏ một giột lệ nào
(music)
就讓我的心 一片一片慢慢的撕裂
jiu rang wo de xin   yi pian yi pian man man de si lie
Just let my heart slowly rip apart piece by piece
Cứ để tim tôi từ từ từng mảnh từng mảnh mà tan nát đi
就讓我的夢 一點又一點被粉碎
jiu rang wo de meng   yi dian you yi dian bei fen sui
Just let my dream shatter bit by bit
Cứ để giấc mộng của tôi từng chút từng chút mà vỡ ra đi
不需要求饒 我想除了你
bu xu yao qiu rao   wo xiang chu le ni
Don’t beg for forgiveness, I don’t want anyone else but you
Đừng cầu xin được tha thứ, tôi không muốn ai ngoài em ra
沒有人能夠解圍
mei you ren neng gou jie wei
No one else could possibly resolve this obstacle
Không ai khác có thể giải vây được
你是我豢養那朵玫瑰
ni shi wo huan yang na duo mei gui
You’re the roses that I’ve kept
Em là đóa hoa hồng mà tôi nuôi dưỡng
給你全世界 卻換來卑微
gei ni quan shi jie   que huan lai bei wei
I’ve given you the whole world yet what I got in return was menial
Tôi cho em cả thế giới, nhưng chỉ đổi lại được những hèn mọn
在你轉身之前 拒絕任何安慰
zai ni zhuan shen zhi qian   ju jue ren he an wei
At the moment before you turned around, refusing any consolation
Trong lúc trước khi em quay mình đi, cự tuyệt hết những sự an ủi
你永遠都不會 了解我的卑微
ni yong yuan dou bu hui   le jie wo de bei wei
You would never understand my inferiority
Em vĩnh viễn sẽ không hiểu được sự thấp kém của tôi

空著讓它空著
kong zhe rang ta kong zhe
If there’s nothing, then just let it be
Nếu không có gì thì cứ để nó thành không đi
為誰固執保留的位置
wei shui gu zhi bao liu de wei zhi
Because of whom that you stubbornly reserve the position?
Vì ai mà cố chấp giữ lấy vị trí
關於我們的事

Regarding to our matter
Về chuyện của đôi ta
我毫不掩飾

I could hardly conceal it
Tôi hầu như không giấu được
愛為什麼結束
ai wei shen me jie shu
Why did love end?
Tình yêu tại sao lại kết thúc?
也許只少了一點的堅持
ye xu zhi shao le yi dian de jian chi
Perhaps, it was lacking a little bit of perseverance
Có lẽ chỉ vì thiếu một chút đỉnh kiên trì
擁抱的溫度 漸漸的流失

The embrace’s warmness gradually dissipates
Độ ấm của cái ôm sẽ từ từ xua tan đi

Dropping a few degrees below zero
Giảm xuống dưới không độ
以為快樂 只能到此為止

If I were to try really hard, I could forget you
Nếu như tôi rất cố gắng, có lẽ sẽ quên được anh
我試過 真的不容易

I tried already, it wasn’t easy
Tôi thử qua rồi, thiệt không dễ làm đâu 
因為在心底 還是抹不去
yin wei zai xin di   hai shi mo bu qu
Because deep in my heart, it still can’t be erased
Bởi vì tận trong lòng tôi, nó vẫn không thể xóa đi được
太多傷痛在延續
tai duo shang tong zai yan xu
There’s a lot of ongoing pain
Còn quá nhiều đau thương vẫn đang kéo dài
我情願能祝福你 也祝福自己
wo qing yuan neng zhu fu ni   ye zhu fu zi ji
I’m willing to give you my blessings, also blessing myself
Tôi tình nguyện chúc phúc anh và chúc phúc chính mình
某一天 會有人愛你
mou yi tian   hui you ren ai ni
One day, there will someone who loves you
Một ngày nào đó sẽ có người yêu em
從此幸福了 不小心的忘記
cong ci xing fu le   bu xiao xin de wang ji
Henceforth, happiness will cause you to carelessly forget
Từ đó, hạnh phúc sẽ khiến cho anh/em không cẩn thẩn mà quên đi
最後微笑的 就幸福的忘記
zui hou wei xiao de   jiu xing fu de wang ji
In the end, smile in happiness and forget about it
Cuối cùng, mỉm cười trong hạnh phúc mà quên đi

Year 2014 in Recap

year_review

You know what? I’m beginning to feel like the year in review from WordPress doesn’t even justify my accomplishments, especially this past year. So I decided to go all out on the rebellion and make my own post. It might not look as glamorous as WordPress’s version but at least it doesn’t make me look that lazy, lol.

Starting off with some general stats.

Total Posts in 2014: 139 – Yes, posts ONLY. But the number would have gone up if I counted the pages since I usually use ‘pages’ for fan fic updates, except if it’s a one-shot.
January: 19
February: 16
March: 13
April: 14
May: 6
June: 12
July: 8
August: 10
September: 7
October: 9
November: 8
December: 17

poll_collage

Times Updated on People on the Poll: 63 – Looking at the breakdown, it goes to show that I update on whoever I feel like, not having to do with the who is leading the polls, etc. It’s nothing new, it’s like what I said before. It’s not that I placed in the poll just for kicks or just messing with people. But it’s more like I was curious (like I mentioned in the past already) and try not to put myself on pressure as to update according to votes. What I do feel bad about is not updating on Vic and Janine or Nic more like I should have.
Wallace Huo: 8
Ady An: 1
Hu Ge: 1
Vic Chou: 4
Joanne Zeng: 4
Janine Chang: 2
Angela Chang: 1
Xiu Jie Kai: 1
Nicholas Teo: 1
Yvonne Yao: 3
Zhao Jun Ya: 16
Achel Chang/ Zhang Xin Yu: 5
Sophia Chou: 3
Van Fan: 1
Eric Suen: 3
Penny Lin: 3
Jacky Chu: 10
Bianca Bai: 1

Music Reviews: 13 – Not bad, right? I managed to empty the majority of the list I had up. So it’s something to celebrate about here.

Movies + TV Series Reviews/Episode Summaries: 22 episodes and 6 reviews – I could have done better here but still not too bad.

Fan Fiction: It has been a sad case here since I don’t know when. But I really do apologize for all those waiting for certain stories that have been lagging for the past few years now. It’s just that I didn’t find inspiration to do work with it and didn’t want to end up ruining it more than I already did.

  • Slanted Thoughts 2
  • The Dating Game 45 – Mad progress on this saga, right? Sadly, it could only be said for this one, lol.

Songs Translations: 12 – Hey, it’s record here! I’m serious! Translations are hard! It’s harder for my case since I’m still learning in some areas.

Chinese: 9

Vietnamese: 3

Side Updates: 41 posts – YUP, these have been occupying my time as well. At times, I cheated and posted pictures only, but I swear, some of them were kind of too secretive to talk about. Or some were adaptations that I hadn’t read about yet.

  • Fu Rong Jin: 5 – It’s going to show like next year, right?
  • Favorite Scenes Saga: 1 post, but I did have a lot to work on so it wasn’t like I was slacking on purpose
  • Worth Watching Saga: Managed to publish all 3 I have in the background for the recommendation posts. Plan to launch another one this upcoming year.
  • Seasons in the Sun: 5
  • Love Knows No Distance: 2
  • Gold Pretty Girl/Dan Shen You Yue: 3 – Seriously, been waiting for this to air.
  • Dong Jiang Heroes: 6
  • Never Ending Love: 2
  • Royal Tramp/ The Deer and the Cauldron 2014: 4
  • Yuan Yue Wan Dao: 1 – Seriously, when is this airing?
  • Shen Yi Da Dao Gong 2013: 4
  • Throwback Thursday Saga: 3
  • Reasons to Stay Positive Saga: 2

What do I want to focus on for this next coming year? More on Couples posts and pages. Not to mention the “Special Profiles” pages that I had suddenly abandoned. There’s also the “All About” saga that I halted all of a sudden as well. So are these my New Year resolutions? No. I seriously don’t want to force myself into that, considering how this is just a blog to share all the randomness that I like. So putting pressure on that would lose the purpose of the blog itself even more. I’m just bringing it up because I want to say I’m not abandoning those completely yet. Although what I would want more is to finally finish some fan fics that I have been lagging since whenever. Wouldn’t that be something?

All right, have a great year next year, everyone! Happy blogging or stalking if you don’t blog! (LOL) See you next year for another random update of the wrap-up from me!

Love Actually

OMG, finally reviewing this. But what could I say about it? Let’s say that I like this one better than Never Said Goodbye although NSG was also a very good album. It was just that it had taken on another arch that it felt weird to me. (Or maybe I’ve been listening to pop for too long that I couldn’t appreciate quality stuffs anymore.)

CD

1. Party Life. Featuring Mike Kasem. Very lively and addicting after awhile when you get into it. Indeed living up to the opening track.

2. Petty and Low (卑微). Just a few tune of this song and I was hooked already. I was surprised how fast I stopped what I was doing to see what the song was. A very nice flowing song, along with beautiful lyrics also.

3.  You Are My Queen (妳是我的女王 [偶像劇「女王的誕生」主題曲] ). The main theme of The Queen. Lived up to being the main theme, drawing one into the drama. But it could also be a nice, cute song on its own too.

4. Letting Go With Happiness (幸福的忘記 (feat. 梁文音) [偶像劇「女王的誕生」插曲] ). Featuring Rachel Liang. The sub-theme of The Queen. Didn’t expect to like the song so much. But it was very enjoyable. Sad, mellow song. A great duet overall.

5. Disheartened Joke (傷心笑話). Depressing song, obviously, I know. Intense. It reminds me of some song I can’t really recall at the moment, but maybe it’s because from that same songwriter so it has the same feelings.

6. The Most Favorable Breakup Time (最愛時放手). Nice, soothing song. Although there’s an underlying sadness, but it’s still a good feeling one since it’s NOT too much over on the overly depressing zone.

7. Elegant Lie (謊言秀). Upbeat song. I could get into it. But the mix is bugging me to death so yeah. Have to pass on this one.

8. I Don’t Love You (我不愛妳了). I swear this sounds like another song that I dare not name, in case fans go after me. Not that I’m implying something. Yet I feel like it really reminded that one song I listened to more than once in recent years. Not really my favorite, but still feel it’s a good song.

9. Skipping (跳針). This song is a tad longer than the other ones. Or it feels that way.

10. Love…Is Not (愛…不是 [偶像劇「女王的誕生」片尾曲] ). The ending theme of The Queen. Totally living up to be the ending theme of the drama. Not to mention the exit song for the album.

DVD

1. Letting Go With Happiness (幸福的忘記) MV. (feat. 梁文音). Featuring Rachel Liang. Nice MV. Like the artistic direction. Enjoyed their collaboration – though subtle. Because it was suitable for the theme of the song itself.

2. Love…Is Not (愛…不是) MV. Average. Okay, maybe I’m nitpicking but it was just some scenes from the drama, and that was it.

Conclusion? Totally living up to my expectations. Or maybe because I’m an Eric fan so I can’t say no. Although I wished there were more MVs. But I guess I was just being greedy and not having enough of Eric’s performance, etc. If I could pick though, I want to see the MV for track #2. But overall, another good album from Eric.
