My internet friend Gary once commented that my father must had made a mistake sending me to English school. Gary is 100% correct. Although I think and speak in English, everything else is Chinaman in me, especially music.
From today onwards, if possible, each day, I shall present my favourite evergreen pop songs from youtube and share them here.

While searching through the youtube site, I
came across this wonderful video featuring a duet doing two Hokkien
songs, featuring traditional musical instruments.
Hokkien songs are mostly about love, family and the vicissitudes of
life. They are usually sung with deep emotion and delicate vocal,
facial and body expressions.

Today I like to share this piece with you by
Loong Piao Piao. This piece exudes that air of nostalgia for an old man
like me. Ah! Time flies and awaits for no one, even the bloody
corrupted and racist politicians have no chance to escape.

Today I like to share this song with you by the stunningly beautiful Tracy Huang.
Autumn Wing 秋 风... 黄莺莺 TRACY Huang
I particularly like the Thai version which sounds very sensual. You

Today I like to share a happy song in Hokkien by Chen Lei the Taiwanese singer. He is hot property since he sang this song.
欢喜就好 - 陳雷 Chen Lei : HUA HEE TIO HO
"Happy Is Good Enough". this song describes
the ironies in life. Even the best things have their problems. The
last line is superb "Pretty wife, elopes". meaning having a pretty wife,
also problem! Enjoy!
