Cheng Beng aka Grave Cleaning Day

Image
Went back last year with some unfortunate sucks-big-time bus incident, and decided to go back this year too since mom's birthday was around the corner (6th April).

The actual day fell on the 4th of April. On this day, we had a simple praying rituals going on such as serving food to the deceased (of all) and burned paper money for them. The weather has been so hot for the past few weeks, I literally drank the whole bowl of lychees and pineapples cordial once it was removed from the praying table!

We went to the paternal side on Friday, along with my aunties, uncles and cousins. The routine was pretty much the same, started at Tanah Merah grandpa's and great grandparents'. To simplify the praying process, the granduncles from 'nearby' were 'invited' to 'join' along with great grandparents during 'food serving' and praying. From 'inviting', it would simply be carrying incense stick, went to their grave, 'asked' them to go over …

Zumba Brazilian Flavour Master Class with Enrique Salomao

Image
Most of you should know me better by now, that I am a total ZUMBA freak.

According to The Hunter,
"Wow you really go everywhere for this ZUMBA thingy huh..."
"NO I'm not. So far it's just Penang."

14th April, a 'ZUMBA "Brazilian Flavour" Master Class with Enrique Salomao' was held at 24 Hours Xtreme Fitness, Straits Quay.

We, being me, Lee Jynn and Tess, went Penang a day earlier for some light shopping, eating and gossiping. Girls trip is always fun!! (note: ...when you are with your best gossip buddies around, of course).

On the day, Straits Quay was packed as there was this Science Fair thingy going on as well, and the parking was jam-packed full, luckily we got a parking spot after ten minutes of circling.

A Zumba Master Class is something like an ordinary class with extended time duration. It means, the usual class is normally an hour long, and the Master Class extends the time to half an hour more, and unlike the Zumba parties I have…

张国荣,一路好走

P/S: 既然都在懒散中,何不把这被冷落的部落格热闹一番呢~

二零零三年四月一号,张国荣出世十周年。

*** *** ***

十年前,

Poli第一年第二学期开始时我被莫名其妙地编到另一栋宿舍;

四月,应该是接近第二学期尾了,和室友相处融洽,对房间没多大怨言,只是偶然地,如果忘了关窗,会有猫溜进来舒服卧在我床上 (因为我房间在最尾段,我的床又靠窗)

四月一号,大概中午时间,我在宿舍,怡保室友甩开门激动地说:“张国荣死咗!!”

看在那天是四月一号,平时我与她都会嬉笑哈拉,顿时窃笑说:“April Fool 也拿别的东西开玩笑啦好心你~~”

她:“不!!!我说真的!!他真的死了!!”

过后,翻了几分报纸, 事实证明,是真的...

我想,那天,全世界人都希望那个消息真的是April Fool吧~~~

十年后,

在炎热的周日看《霸王别姬》。

故事很长,两个小时又五十分。分成三次来看。

观后感:
1)最狠角色非菊仙莫属;
2)对文革的悲愤;
3)今后唱“当爱已成往事”的心情不再一样了...

买了个中国包装的歌曲精选集。

看了兼下载了好几个张国荣的YouTube电影片段,《家有喜事》偏多。

*** *** ***

我并不敢大咧咧地说,我是张国荣忠实饭。

他有好几首歌,我听都没听过。

他有好几个作品,我也没看过。

只是,张国荣这个名字会这么响当当,不是没有理由的。

演技好,歌声独特,想必在这个世界上要找到一个跟他声音有得拼的人,应该没有吧。

每次去唱K,必点《追》和《当爱已成往事》(林忆莲的版本key太高,唱不到);必点到已经被人吐槽的状况了。

话说,《追》,就连不精通华语的马来朋友,听了都会被他的歌声惊艳到毛骨悚然,直接问:“这首歌很悲吗?我的心都漏半拍了,虽然完全听不懂...”

虽然过期了,还是想说,“哥哥,一路好走”

Jangan Cari Alasan untuk Slacking

This blog has been slacking for almost a month!!! So unforgivable...

I have been busy for god-knows-what, and I simply can't find an exclusive personal time for a blog writing, and I'm sorry for that. There are some stories going on around me, and some I am not sure if it's OK for me to write about, so I shall think about it first and decide later.

Went to see Prof on Friday and had a good scold from him. Slackness is the big problem, and he wasn't happy AT ALL about it. Termination sounds so real now YIKES!! Received an email from him this morning about a free-of-charge journal publication and I quote:
