請你再為我 點上一盞燭光
qing ni zai wei wo   dian shang yi zhan zhu guang
Please once again light up a candle because of me
Xin hãy vì tôi thêm một lần nữa thấp lên một ngọn nến
因為我早已迷失了方向
yin wei wo zao yi mi shi liao fang xiang
Because I’ve already lost my way
Bởi vì tôi đã sớm bị mất đi phương hướng
我掩飾不住的慌張
wo yan shi bu zhu de huang zhang
I couldn’t hide my nervousness
Tôi chôn dấu không được nỗi hoang mang
在迫不及待地張望
zai po bu ji dai di zhang wang
Too impatient to wait, I looked everywhere
Đợi không được, tôi nhìn khắp nơi
深怕這一路是好夢一場
shen pa zhe yi lu shi hao meng yi chang
Really afraid that the road is just only but a dream
Thiệt sợ rằng con đường này chỉ là một giấc mộng đẹp

而你是一張無邊無際的網
er ni shi yi zhang wu bian wu ji di wang
And you’re a borderless web
Còn em là chiếc lưới vô bờ vô biên
輕易就把我困在網中央
qing yi jiu ba wo kun zai wang zhong yang
Just simply trapped me at the center of the web
Chỉ đơn giản vây hãm tôi vào giữa chiếc lưới
我愈陷愈深愈迷網 
wo yu xian yu shen yu mi wang
The deeper I fall, the more lost I am within the web
Tôi lúng càng sâu thì càng bị thất lạc trong chiếc lưới
路愈走愈遠愈漫長
lu yu zou yu yuan yu man chang
The farther the road is traveled, the longer it gets
Đường càng đi thì càng dài dằng dặc
如何我才能捉住你眼光
ru he wo cai neng zhuo zhu ni yan guang
How could I capture your attention?
Tôi làm sao mới lọt được vào tầm mắt của em?

情願就這樣守在你身旁
qing ni jiu zhe yang shou zai ni shen pang
Willingly just like that staying protectively by your side
Tình nguyện cứ như vậy mà ở bên cạnh bảo vệ em
情願就這樣一輩子不忘
qing yuan jiu zhe yang yi bei zi bu wang
Willingly just like that my whole life, not forgetting
Tình nguyện cứ như vậy mà cả đời không quên
我打開愛情這扇窗 卻看見長夜日淒涼
wo da kai ai qing zhe shan chuang   que kan jian chang ye ri qi liang
I opened up that window of love yet saw long days and nights of coldness
Tôi mở ra cánh cửa sổ tình yêu nhưng thấy được những đêm ngày dài lạnh lẽo
問你是否會捨得我心傷
wen ni shi fou hui she de wo xin shang
Asking you whether you’re willing to let me be heartbroken
Hỏi em có nở lòng thấy tôi đau khổ?

Year 2017 in Recap

year_review

When I thought that 2016 was a terrible year for me, I was wrong. 2017 continued to tank to a new level of crappiness. There were many frustrating things–one after another. It was like when I asked, “How much worse could 2017 be?”, it was like a challenge to the universe. So stuff happening in real life obviously affected how much time I have for this blog or attempted to keep some sort of activity. I did better than last year regarding updates, but that was a lot of effort because I’m still way behind on some news that I wanted to talk about. Yet no time or more like didn’t feel like it at the moment. I continued to get drained to another level that I thought might not be possible–like several days before. Then the pattern just repeated itself at different intervals. I think somewhere along the way, I ended up revamping my blog by getting rid of the too random posts. Like those general update ones. Although my blog already is random on many levels, I didn’t want to just post for the sake of placeholders too much. Anyway, here are some stats for this year.

Total Posts in 2017: 155 (11.7% of all time).

January: 18 (% of the year)
February: 10 (%)
March: 21 (%)
April: 20 (%)
May: 11 (%)
June: 18 (%)
July: 6 (%)
August: 4 (%)
September: 20 (%)
October: 14 (%)
November: 9 (%)
December: 4 (%)

Books Reviews:

Sad, because I actually read a bit this year but didn’t feel like doing reviews for some of them. Maybe I’ll go back to do them later.

Movies + TV Series Reviews/Episode Summaries:

Fan Fiction:

Complete failure–unlike what I promised last year about getting things done. I started looking over some of the fanfics again and managed to get going on some, but I can’t promise how fast it would be rolled out. I’ll get it out when I’m happy with what I wrote.

Songs Translations:

I used “You’re Always Beautiful” to start the year, thinking that if I continue to retain some sense of positiveness, somehow things will get better. But it didn’t. Anyway, how was this year regarding translations? I didn’t realize I was that productive. Mostly, I tried to push the majority of 183 Club’s songs out.

Chinese:

Vietnamese:

I didn’t want to do this update like I said last year. However, I felt like I needed to persuade myself to continue on. Not to mention, I want to keep some sort of a teeny, tiny bit of hope that 2018 will actually be better. So we’ll see, right?

Wilber Pan: Jacky Cheung’s Unofficial Disciple

(image source: Will’s Facebook)

The other day, Wilber shared a picture with “God of Songs” (歌神) Jacky Cheung with the caption that mentioned Jacky was supposedly his “master” (師父). I had to double-check since I wasn’t aware, lol. The other picture disclosed of the matter even more, because, from the flowers he sent Jacky, it clarified that Jacky wasn’t really his master, not really in a sense that Jacky recognized it and had gone through the “tea offering ceremony”, lol. Will had decided to declare it as that–quite thick-skinned attempt on his part (as he had said in the message, lol). You gotta love Will for his effort, right? What was the occasion? Jacky had launched a world tour called “A Classic Tour” so that had drawn a lot of attention and excitement all around the e-circle. Many others had posted their own pictures of attending the tour, but what caught my attention was Will’s humor.

Year 2016 in Recap

year_review


Year 3 in doing this. I really want to keep doing this, but I felt that 2016 had been a complete letdown on my part. Granted, it was a terrible year on many levels. It had affected me so much, draining me emotionally that I didn’t feel like keeping some kind of streak anymore. I only did some posts when I felt like it. Then I also tried to pick myself up by the end of the year by trying to release songs translations back-to-back at times, not even saving them for later so cushion posts could do the honor. I just didn’t feel like updating a lot of things. At first, I had prepared a post about a particular pairing, but I felt like I’m better than that. Not to mention how I wouldn’t want to cause even more misunderstandings between fans. At times, it’s very hard to restrain. But in the end, real-life got in the way. I took the actions that wonderful couple took, instead of arguing with senseless people who are full of evil thoughts for them. Yet I will say that can’t be epic like them so maybe one day I will break out of my silence to go at it in one post to unleash all the bottled-up frustrations. Because I know one of those days I will just blow up.

Total Posts in 2016: 77 (6.5% of all time).

January: 18 (23% of the year)
February: 3 (4%)
March: 1 (1%)
April: 3 (4%)
May: 9 (12%)
June: 7 (9%)
July: 14 (18%)
August: 3 (4%)
September: 3 (4%)
October: 6 (8%)
November: 2 (3%)
December: 8 (10%)

Notice that I took the poll out for the stars. Partially, it was due to what happened earlier this year. The other part was because I felt kind of wrong with teasing readers about possible updates if they voted more or whatever. I’m grateful to those who participated and continue to follow my blog–even in silence. I appreciate the constant likes and all as well. I really do. It’s just that I don’t want to be leaving you hanging on that. Sure, I will continue to update for my favorites from time to time, but that will depend on how long before I take care of some real-life matters.

Books Reviews:

Movies + TV Series Reviews/Episode Summaries:

Fan Fiction:

I think the year reached a new low for fan fiction updates because of my distractions of other stuff. I can’t promise it’ll get any better this coming year. I’m sorry that I made those of you who are reading those stories wait for too long. But I can promise you that I will finish regardless of obstacles since I don’t usually scrap stories away when it’s well on its way. I’ll try to do a separate fan fiction update later this year to clarify some matters.

  • Payback – Chapters 4-5

Songs Translations:

Using Rebirth to start the year didn’t help at all. Despite the fact that I was having high hopes at that time. The year continued to dive with a lot of forced positiveness. But what else could I do, right? Hopefully the coming year will be better.

So, what now? I don’t think there is any other choice except to move forward. I want to keep being positive, ignoring trolls in general, and just focus on my own matters. I want to get back on writing posts about Jun Ya and Xiao Xiao Yu. I have been active on Xiao Xiao Yu for the first part of the year and then somehow faded. But I did update more on Qiao Qiao in the later parts of the year. I just have to continue on that track. Not to mention getting back into fanfics, because I seriously miss them. Focusing on just real life stuffs really suck all the energy right out of me. I’ll try to work on a balance. Somehow. Because I seriously miss this blog. What I did do though was letting this blog becoming somewhat official with its own domain. Yes, that was a mini-Christmas present for myself since I managed to find a deal. Oh yeah, how could I forget Janine? Although I did update on her this year, I was somewhat neglecting her and only updating randomly. I also want to get back to Penny. More importantly, I want to actually watch and finish reviewing some dramas I’ve been holding back on.

This might possibly be the last year I do this type of update since I don’t find the fun in it anymore. Maybe resorting back to the typical data from WordPress next year. Not sure. But we’ll see.
