Monsters University Snail: I admire his determination

June 27th, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

It’s been a tradition for me to take my mom to all the good Pixar movies and we couldn’t miss this one. She is now the kid in the family. The movie was awesome, my mom laughed and randomly shouted in Chinese during the entire movie. As you probably guessed, her english is worse than mine hence the natural reflexes. She gets very exited while watching movies, yes, even cartoons. It’s embarrassing, good thing we were in the dark and hey, all the other parents couldn’t control their kids either.

I just wanted to do a quick post on this cute little snail. He’s not a significant character in the movie just a little guy that appeared for a few seconds. His only line was, “I can’t be late for the first day!” then he takes a deep breath and runs with all his might. Of course he doesn’t go very far, it’s so hilarious. By nature he’s not quick but is oozing with determination and positive energy. He doesn’t give up. That’s what counts! He’s a very good role model, wouldn’t you say? I am also slow by nature, his infectious determination was so sweet, cute and encouraging. I just couldn’t help but notice.

Playing with Apps: PhotoEdit and Instagram

Blue loves it when I give him all my crap. I am a lucky girl.

Some sing, some read, some play video games and others, well…who knows what they do while taking care of business. Me, I played with Apps today. I have to admit it was fun, productive and entertaining . Ewww… my image on the web is ruined!!! In any case, if your interested, I used PhotoEdit first to crop, draw and add the text onto my photo. The text and image options were very limited but easy to use. Then I added an Instagram filter ‘Walden’ on top.

Now that you’ve manage to forget about my “creative crap” for a second, I hope you will discover fun filled joys in unexpected places.

Learn Chinese Character Singing KTV: 荃加福祿壽探案- 無聊合唱團 Lyrics

October 11th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

This is a short funny Cantonese song from a TVB Drama, 荃加福祿壽探案 quán jiā fú lù shòu tàn àn (Super Snoops). Their singing and dancing makes me laugh out loud.

Study Materials

The song is sung in Cantonese. Many words are very hard to translate due to the nonsense nature of the song. Even my Cantonese friends says that it can’t be directly translated. I tried to translated it the best I can at the bottom, don’t take it as being 100% correct. This is a nonsense song for fun only. Learn the words for what it is with the Vocabulary list 荃加福祿壽探案 無聊合唱團. The definition and Mandarin pingying are in Traditional Chinese (I don’t know of a Cantonese translator). Download, enjoy and learn.

Test Yourself and Sing Along 🙂

Song #2: 荃加福祿壽探案-無聊合唱團

懸懸居居去買麵
(懸懸居居, not 100% what this means, I think it means dumb) dumbly I go to buy noodles
買着個蝦子麵
bought a shrimp noodle
媽媽沖谅, 爸爸耕田
mama’s takes a (沖谅) bath/shower,  Papa tills the fields
由我去買麵
so it’s up to me to go buy the noodles
爺爺失眠就開風扇
grandpa has insomnia and goes to turn on the fan
但係冇晒電
but there’s no electricity left
我最節儉用芭蕉扇來撥面
I am the most frugal I use a palm-leaf fan to fan my face
三叔公佢回頭鬧我
3rd great uncle turns back to scold me
乜你咁曵未去買麵
why you naughty and not gone to buy the noodles
