I have seen a batch of National Service trainees walking around town lately and noticed a remarkable resemblance in the particular hue of their uniform…
…with one of my work shirts.
Anyway, I’ve been searching for this particular song ever since I heard it earlier this year. I’m not a big fan of Chinese music at all (since I hardly understand the lyrics) but this one is good. I call it the Flaming Lamborghini song. The actual title is Cong Taipei dao Beijing (From Taipei to Beijing) and it’s a liberating break up song of some sort.
I don’t really understand the lyrics but it goes something like:
From Taipei to Beijing / I feel liberated by love lost
I heartily party with one Flaming Lamborghini / A couple drinks of Bloody Mary
Gives me an outlet for my rage.
When you said you wanted out / I felt very relaxed, my mind absolutely calm
I want you to regret this decision / I really don’t need you
I could be completely mutilating the song due to my limited understanding of Chinese so if someone better than me could actually translate it, it would be much appreciated. I think part of the appeal is that I don’t understand most of the lyrics so I can related to it any way I want to. Heh! It’s going to be my ringtone now. 😉
2002 – Grampians trip report in Melbourne, Australia. I was camwhoring before the name was even invented. 😉
2003 – Bangsar Telawi Mamak and first day at work in XM Malaysia. I was in KL working at the time.
2004 – Jojo Cafe in Kuching – it’s a popular Chinese eating establishment. I used to bring one of the boys in blue there to eat, despite the non-halal status. It’s the one I like better.
2005 – Doing a Fast Food Inc. post on a Pizza Hut promotional pizza.
2006 – Triple play – there’s a post on BDC beef noodles, another one of Cherie and the last one is a syringe pen that I got in Thailand.
