Easter Song

Posted on


easter song 01

When I walk up to you

I lost my arms

The closer I move

I lost my legs

The closer I look

I lost my thinking and smarty head

How can I go on without all these?

Yes, you can!

You can!

Come closer to me

I’ll show you the way

easter song 02

When I walk up to you

I lost my face

The closer I move

I lost my senses

The closer I look

I lost my color and vibrancy

What can I cling on without all these?

Yes, you can!

You can!

Come closer to me

I’ll show you my way

easter song 03

I finally walk up to you

I lost my voice

The closer I move

I lost my melody

The closer I look

I lost my words and my final confessions

Where can I hang on without all these?

Yes, you can!

You can!

I’ll show you my way

My way of living

My face of Hope

A Hello to QingMing

Posted on


qingming 01

Long before I could recall, the day has arrived again. 

Today, I spent a trip down to Mount Vernon Sanctuary to pay respect to my ancestors on this QingMing Festival.  QingMing (also known as Tomb Sweeping Day) is a big day and a yearly day of observance to most Chinese.  It is a day to remember and pay respect to their late ancestors.  Sweeping the tomb, offering foods and joss paper accessories are common practice on QingMing.

The sanctuary is sitting on Mount Vernon Hill.  This delighting piece of land is going to be transformed into residential developments soon.  My ancestors would have to move out from their long stay in no time.

It’s a place I love to visit, as the lush greenery and fresh air is awesome.  The peace and calm I got from this piece of land is as good as emancipation.  The lovely surrounding for all these ancestors is going to be a past soon, though their existence will always remain in our present!

Imagine them strolling along the road, sitting on the bench and chatting about their past.

Enjoying the offerings from the wonderful nature.

The tree, the fruits…

A Friday of Good Song

Posted on


good friday 01

It’s going to be good, after this Friday

Looking at the shinning cross

Paying respect at this moment

Thus, we know of this day

Let’s enjoy walking down the street

A complete silent without singing

And no dancing

Follow the eyes of this man

Sorrow drifting away

Believe me or not

We are going to be fine, after this

Believe me or not

It got to be good, after this Friday

good friday 02

It’s going to be good, after this Friday

Looking at the shinning star

Watching the rise of this moment

Thus, we know of this day

Let’s enjoy walking down the street

A royal hour without talking

And no laughing

Follow the shadow of this man

Fear drifting away

Believe me or not

We are going to be fine, after this

Believe me or not

It got to be good, after this Friday
