For My Mum.

It is Mother’s Day soon. Not sure how to express myself to her, but this song, written by a Chinese singer, says it all.
Now that I have my own kid, I realise the love, the sacrifices, the life my mother poured into my life.

《当你老了》(中国好歌曲现场版歌词)
当你老了 头发白了
睡意昏沉
当你老了 走不动了
炉火旁打盹 回忆青春
多少人曾爱你青春欢畅的时辰
爱慕你的美丽 假意或真心
只有一个人还爱你虔诚的灵魂
爱你苍老的脸上的皱纹
当你老了 眼眉低垂
灯火昏黄不定
风吹过来 你的消息
这就是我心里的歌
多少人曾爱你青春欢畅的时辰
爱慕你的美丽 假意或真心
只有一个人还爱你虔诚的灵魂
爱你苍老的脸上的皱纹
当我老了 我真希望
这首歌是唱给你的

To a great leader. Lee Kuan Yew

Majulah

One of my favorites from one of my favorite leader.

“Our forefathers came here because they were looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Some found that pot of gold, many didn’t. They sweated their guts out and built this city out of mudflats. We’ve inherited it, we have added to it. And I say it is worth defending it.”

– Lee Kuan Yew
