80年代的歌曲

27 Nov

I recently attended a old friend (knowing him since i was 10yrs old) wedding dinner in Hard Rock Cafe. This is the coolest wedding dinner i have ever attended. Not like many of the traditional Chinese wedding dinner, the Bridegroom turn his wedding into a concert party, where he is the lead band singer.

I kind of like enjoy the whole idea and the concert, where the band play many good songs of the 80’s which i had forgotten and used to love most of them.

Like to attach some of the good songs which where played that night

 

 

 

 

 

I wish the marry couple happily ever after.

Reveiw of Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon

7 Jul

Watched Transformers 3 Dark of the Moon (3D) on 6 July 2011 with my fellow colleagues in one fine working afternoon at GSC QueenBay.

Overall I’m pretty much enjoy the movie, it was a long one. Not sure it was the longest among all the 3 series; but definitely it’s a good one.

The story is kind of lengthily at the beginning, where Michael Bay tried to fit the story line into the NASA Apollo’s programs. Well i think the story line fitted in quite well. That created all the conspiracies whether any alien(s) out there had made any contact with us.

In this movie, we have seem more of the Autobots present than the Decepticons.  The main characters of the movie is surrounding on Optimus Prime and Sentinel Prime, the two Prime of the Autobot. Battling between each other toward the end of the film.

As for the Decepticons, i like the design outlook of Soundwave, Shockwave and the new Barricade. Megatron do not look as smart as he used to be in the previous last 2 films. Laserbeak is also playing a important role in this film, where he is the main communicator between the Decepticons and human.

I must said Rosie Huntington-Whiteley really replaced the charm and beauty of the missing Megan Fox. She might not be thrill in her acting; but she is indeed beautiful throughout the film.

Rating of the film i would give 4/5

Good Music

Keeping both clips below as a record:

The Band Perry – If I Die Young

Songwriters: KIMBERLY PERRY

If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song
uh oh uh oh

Lord make me a rainbow, I’ll shine down on my mother
She’ll know I’m safe with you when she stands under my colors oh and
Life ain’t always what you think it ought to be, no
ain’t even grey, but she buries her baby

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I’ve had just enough time

If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I’ve had just enough time

And I’ll be wearing white when I come into your kingdom
I’m as green as the ring on my little cold finger
I’ve never known the lovin’ of a man
But it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand
There’s a boy here in town says he’ll love me forever
Who would have thought forever could be severed by

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I’ve had just enough time

So put on your best boys and I’ll wear my pearls
What I never did is done

A penny for my thoughts, oh no I’ll sell them for a dollar
They’re worth so much more after I’m a goner
And maybe then you’ll hear the words I’ve been singin’
Funny when you’re dead how people start listenin’

If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song
oh oh

The ballad of a dove
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears; keep them in your pocket
Save them for a time when you’re really gonna need them oh

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I’ve had just enough time

So put on your best boys and I’ll wear my pearls

Pricess – I’m Yours

Well you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you’re so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks, now I’m trying to get back

Before the cool done run out I’ll be giving it my bestest
And nothing’s going to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it’s again my turn to win some or learn some

But I won’t hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I’m yours

Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and then you’re free
Look into your heart and you’ll find love love love love

Listen to the music of the moment people, dance and sing
We’re just one big family
And it’s our God-forsaken right to be loved loved loved loved loved

So I won’t hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I’m sure
There’s no need to complicate, our time is short
This is our fate, I’m yours

I’ve been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and I laughed

I guess what I be saying is there ain’t no better reason
To rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons
It’s what we aim to do, our name is our virtue

But I won’t hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I’m yours

(I won’t hesitate)
Open up your mind and see like me
(No more, no more)
Open up your plans and damn you’re free
Look into your heart and you’ll find that the sky is yours
(It cannot wait, I’m sure)

So please don’t, please don’t, please don’t
(There’s no need to complicate)
There’s no need to complicate
(Our time is short)
‘Cause our time is short
(This is our fate)
This is, this is, this is our fate
I’m yours

The next franchise series of Transformer of director Michael Bay is set to be release on July 1 2011.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon making the film’s title of the third Transformer movie. Reading from the internet, the story plot will be focusing on the space race between the US & the USSR (where you could watch from the official movie trailer is about the Apollo 11 who landed on the moon and discovered a crashed spaceship). The main for this round is going to be Shockwave, most of the main characters from the Autobots & the Decepticons are going to be return from the first two films.

I’m sure Michael Bay is also going to add more new robots into the film, not sure will the giant Unicorn is going to be include in the film, just watch out!!

Megan Fox is not going to be appearing on this film where Sam’s lover interested is going to be replaced by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, a British’s Victoria Secret model who is going to play Carly (the original animation’s character back in 1984).

Don't think we going to miss Megan Fox a lot

Westlife – You Raise Me Up

12 Nov

I can’t recall exact when i hear this lovely song; but for sure this song really touch my inner soul. Remind me about all the people i meet had raised and guided me along this journey. Appreciate you all!!

 

Lyrics

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

[There is no life – no life without its hunger;
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity]

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

You raise me up: To more than I can be.

Share also a bit background about this song:

“You Raise Me Up” is a popular song in the inspirational mould. The music was written by Secret Garden’s Rolf Løvland and the lyrics by Brendan Graham. The song has now been covered more than 125 times.

The song was originally written as an instrumental piece and titled “Silent Story.” The melody is based on a traditional Irish tune (especially the opening phrase of its chorus), the Londonderry Air, which is best known as the usual tune to the 1910 song Danny Boy. Løvland approached Irish novelist and songwriter Brendan Graham to write the lyrics to his melody after reading Graham’s novels. It was originally released on the 2002 Secret Garden album “Once in a Red Moon,” with the vocals sung by Irish singer Brian Kennedy, and sold well in both Ireland and Norway. Originally, Brian Kennedy was supposed to follow Secret Garden on their Asian tour in 2002, but fell ill, and could not attend. He was replaced by Norwegian singer Jan Werner Danielsen, who also later recorded the song together with Secret Garden, but it was never released.”

The Social Network

9 Nov


The first thing came to my mind after i finished the movie, it is kind of easy for anybody do become a millionaire/billionaire

these day. Easy in the sense that as long as you have an unique ideas and know how to reach people in a mass volume. That you got chance.

The movie show how Mark Zuckerberg together with his Hravard’s roommates created the most famous and powerful social network website, which have 500+million users (if Facebook is a country, it will be rank the world 3rd largest country after China & India).

Great success came with great sacrifice, Mark was sued by his Harvard’s senior for the accusation of stolen the original idea of Facebook, he ended paying a law sue of US$60million to settle the case. And in the same time Eduardo Saverin (co-founder of Facebook) also took a legal action against Mark. Where Mark dropped Eduardo share of the company from 34% to 0.03%. The case settle with an undisclosed amount.

Like the subtitle of the movie, in order for you to make 500millions friends, you have to lost a few!!

Invictus

16 Aug

Nelson Mandela – the President of South Africa who served from 1994-1999 and was the first South Africa President to be elected in a fully representative democratic election.

I was not pretty sure about the biography of this great man until I have the opportunity to watch the movie Invictus. It was indeed a great movie telling the story of how Nelson Mandela together with the Ruby National Team of South Africa united the country by winning the Ruby World Cup back in 1995.


The film was directed by Clint Eastwood, the film stars Morgan Freeman as South African President Nelson Mandela and Matt Damon as François Pienaar, the captain of the Springboks, the South African rugby union team.

In the movie, Morgan Freeman played the visionary, wise and humble President of South Africa, he did all he could to unite the nation and to reduce the race tension which has been existed for the past 50years.

I personally like the movie a lot, it bring great inspiration on being a great leader. As a leader you need to have great belief, believe that you could achieve the impossible dream and by doing what ever it take to make that dream reality. In the movie, it also reflected that how humble as a president of a nation can be, he always give compliments and respect to his fellow colleagues, cheers everyone in lighting up their day and motivated the Ruby team by remember all their name. This is true leadership ability!!

Schindler’s List

11 Jun

Schindler’s List

I happen to watch this old movie (starring Liam Neelson and directed by Steven Spielberg) on last weekend over online TV. It was a long 3 hrs movie telling story on how a German businessman (Oskar Schindler) who saved the lives of more than a thousand Polish Jewish refugees during the Holocaust by employing them in his factories. The film was directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Liam Neelson as Oskar Schindler.

The whole movie was filmed in back & white, covering the actual scenario of World WAR II, and how Jewish refugees struggle to survive during the war period.

The movie is not filmed in a very entertaining prospective; but it was indeed a good movie to remind us the peaceful world we are living in today and with all cost to prevent going into War again.

If you have time, try watching it…..

So both of the old men teamed up together and draw a list of items which they wish to complete before their time is up. Together they travel the world and do some really crazy things together.

The story of the movie reflected that how we as a human live our life, do we ended up doing the thing we like and being with the people we love when we aged one day? Or we just ended up living in the dream and request of other people?

  2. Help a complete stranger for the good
  3. Laugh till I cry
  4. Drive a Shelby Mustang
  5. Kiss the most beautiful girl in the world
  6. Get a tattoo
  7. Skydiving
  8. Visit Stonehenge
  9. Visit the Louvre
  10. See Rome
  11. Dinner at La Chevre d’Or
  12. See the Pyramids
  13. Get back in touch (previously “Hunt the big cat,” added after being earlier added and crossed off)
  14. Visit the Taj Mahal
  15. Hong Kong
  16. Victoria Falls
  17. Go on a safari
  18. Drive a motorcycle on the Great Wall of China
  19. Sit on the Great Egyptian Pyramids
  20. Find the Joy in your life

Out from the whole list, I have only completed no.8 & 9. Which one day not too far from today I would be to complete my own “Bucket List”.
