Friend 30 – Raindrops, 雨点


friend 30 -01I’m so glad to see rainfall after 10 days of smoggy experience.  The rain touches the ground, the colorless water colored the pale and grayish land where we lived.

经过十天的浓雾笼罩,今天终于看到无色的雨点,在我们这片灰土无色的地方涂上色彩。

friend 30 -02We smell the nature gratefully.  We saw the smiley plants and flowers, and the relief of the concrete floor dancing with smoke.

我们终于嗅到大自然的气息,看到植物与花朵的笑颜与地面上跳舞的水蒸气。

friend 30 -04We saw peoples happily hiding under the roof.  We heard thunder visiting by the window side, witnessed the birth of rain from the sky.

我们看见人们开心地躲进屋檐下,听见窗外的雷鸣声与雨丝如何从天空里落下。

friend 30 -03I felt something moving in my heart.  Shouldn’t we realize, shouldn’t we cherish the piece of land we are living?

这一刻,有一样东西在我心里头遄动,我们难道还没发觉,如何去珍惜这片土地?

A 60s song not about Elvis


This is the Theme Challenge set by Omy as a Blog Awards Finalist has to go through. The theme must be related to something/someone from/about 60’s that has inspired us.

And this has been set in line with our 60s Fever theme this year.

  This is my post-

The+Wonderful+World+of+the+60s++100+Hit+SongsWho is calling in the dews and wind?

Who is dancing Go-go and twisting?

Who is sobbing “The End of the World”?

And who is chasing the “Unchained Melody”?

Who is going to Rock and Roll with me?

Who is “Mrs. Robinson”?

And who is the Beatles and Hippie?

Let it be! Let it be!

Let it be a series of sweet,

sour and bitterness of life.

Let’s hug over the songs of the 60s.

Toast to our memories.

Toast to our stories with unstoppable “Crazy”!

60s song 02Who is calling in the dawn and dust?

Who is playing Kuti Kuti and Masak Masak?

Who is collecting the seeds of Saga?

And who is fighting over the spiders?

Who is counting the 5 stones game?

Who is Mr. Mee Pok man?

And who is the Kachang Puteh and Ice Kachang man?

Good-bye! Good-bye!

Good-bye to a stream of sweet,

sour and bitterness of rhythms.

Let’s flow into the river of the 60s childhood.

Toast to our memories.

Toast to our stories with Kuto Goli

60s song 01Who is calling in the days and nights?

Who is going Jalan, Jalan at the Pasar Malam and watching Wayang?

Who is walking on the moon?

And who is watching black and white?

Who is the Mattar in khaki shorts prowling on the streets?

Who is the Rediffusion they say can sing, can sing?

Who are Sydney and his Jackson Five?

It’s fine! It’s fine!

It’s fine to be a series of sweet,

sour and bitterness of life.

Let’s cheer over the 60s fever’s life.

Toast to our memories!

Toast to our 60s songs not about Elvis!

Song of the Birdcage


birdcage 01Welcome to my embossed birdcage

It’s engraved with scenery of ivory

Crafted with sweetness of memories

How can I hold it without sharing?

How can I keep a vow within?

So I wrote a song

I wrote a note

I wrote a Blogging post

Birds hear that!

But not wings near that!

birdcage 03 Welcome to my antique birdcage

No hanging price tags

No auction gag

Where do we find an old folks song?

When could we build a home sweet home?

Dancing in the wind

Dancing in the night

Dancing with cool red wine

Monkey hears that!

Monkey nears that!

birdcage 02Welcome to my empty birdcage

No more sorrowful songs

No more broken wings

No more contradicting feel of liberty

Where can I find him?

When can I fly with him?

He is not in the room

Not in Google map

Not on files piling up high desk

Can you see it?

Can you feel it?

That is our dream

Our birdie’s dream

A road where a $10 memories are left behind – A gift for all mothers


mother day 01

This is an ordinary road behind my old house next to Canossian Eduplex.

I grow up here since I was an infant.  When I was young, my family was not so well-off as my dad was the only sole breadwinner of the family.  He worked as a carpenter to sustain a family of eight, this is tough with no further explanations.

For this reason, my mom had to do part time jobs to make ends meet.  She did this by fetching and sending neighbour’s kids to schools.  Getting a side income of $20 per month is better than nothing.

One day, she gave me $10 out of her precious $20.  I was told that was my pocket money.  Without much words, I saw an angel full of wriggles stand right in front of me!

It has been more than 30 years.  Since then, this ordinary road has never been an ordinary road to me.  Till to-date, my angel mom still leave me with so many memories that is priceless.

mother day 04

Today, I step on this gentle ground, seeing things remain unchanged.  The rows of landed property; the roadside concrete drain that are over flow with wild plants; an authentic sport ground and most importantly and yearns for my beloved mom.  For some, hearts and feelings may have changed.  To me, my affection for that moment will forever remained.

mother day 05

Mother’s Day is around the corner.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank all mothers.  You are the greatest person in the world!  Thank you for being the angel shading over your loveable kids with infinite love.

Labour Day Song


labour song 01

Never work for a day

Never heard of 1st of May

A happy fish in the air

A passing cloud in the wind

A standing leaf on the tree

No holiday for you

No Sunday and Saturday

Then what about pay day?

Never heard of 1st of May

But still

I see you on this day

labour song 02

Never work for a day

Never heard of 1st of May

A happy train on the road

A crossing man on the run

A flying leaf in the garden

No shoe for you

No break and no lunch

Then what about pay day?

Never heard of 1st of May

But still

I see you on this day

labour song 03

Never work for a day

Never heard of 1st of May

A happy girl, a lovely face

A passing cloud in the wind

A pointing girl on the street

No parent for you

No working and no schooling

Then what about pay day?

Never heard of 1st of May

But still

I see you on this day
