The Story of Ming Zhi Wo Ai Ni 明知我愛你

明知我愛你

念高中的時候, 我認識一位男生。
在學校課外活動中, 從同學, 變成了朋友。 我喜歡他的坦率和他的幽默感。我們非常談得來, 也就這樣成了蠻好的朋友。他常跟我提起喜歡的女生。 我也覺得我們的世界, 也只能做好朋友那麼多。 不知不覺的,我愛上了他。

當時的我,很矛盾。 一方面的我很想跟他表白, 另一方面却非常害怕, 若他喜歡的不是我, 我們可能連朋友都沒得做。 我掙扎了很久, 決定不想失去他, 決定我生活里有他, 就滿足。

我只想一直守護著他。 。。於是, 我選擇了沈默。
接著的日子, 我一個人渡過。 有他的時候, 我的世界就像彩色般。 他不在的時候, 看見他和別的女生交往的時候, 我依然沈默。 外表看起來開朗的我,內心世界一直下著雨。 I got tired writing so many books of diaries, so I used a tape recorder to record all my feelings…

之後, 我們也失去連絡。 可能是我選擇不再連絡, 因為內心的這場雨下了好久, 一絲陽光也沒有的日子, 好難受。

三年前, 我決定把心裡這塊石頭放下, 把這段回憶放開。
在黃韻仁老師創作班上, 我把這段故事寫成一首歌, 那是我在班上交出的第二首算完整的歌。

我試著把我想要說得都寫下來。 我知道我的華文程度不好,但我覺得我想要和你分享的這段故事, 也只有那麼簡單。 因為, 我相信, 我們都曾這樣的愛過。。。

這首歌和我的首张创作专辑”55:38:7″ 里其他九首歌相比起來, 曲非常的簡單, 歌詞更是簡單。 當我們從我所有作品中為專輯篩選歌曲的時候, 這首歌一次又一次的被選中。 歌詞方面,小寒老師也只改了六個字。

錄這首歌的時候, 我確實是在最後副歌之前的部份哭了。 在錄音室里又哭又唱蠻尷尬的, 最後我們也決定把哭的那段保留著。

很多朋友都在我的 Facebook 上留言。。。 感謝你們和我分享你們聽了這首歌的感想。

你們的一字一句, 我都看到了。你們說你聽了想哭, 我想說, 我會在這裡陪著你。 也希望我們都在愛情的道路上, 找到幸福。

非常感謝你們為這首歌投票, 讓它上榜。謝謝大家給我的支持, 你們是我的推動力。

Recording the strings for the song…

My debut album《55:38:7》is born。。。

我的首张创作专辑《55:38:7》终于诞生了。。。

Hello,

My debut album “55 : 38 : 7” is finally out in all good stores and the press conference was held on Friday, 14 May 2010.

10 songs written from my heart…after a years work, its finally out and I am so excited to share it with you!

I was so touched to learn many of you took time off from work/school to come, and even waited for me after the event. I also know there are many of you who hoped to come but couldn’t make it and sent your well wishes. Just wanna tell you, 大家的爱,我都收到了!

You know, I really wanted to share with each of you personally how I felt but may not have had the opportunity on Friday. 脑海里一直重复这感恩这两个字。So I will share it all here, and say a big thank you to YOU!

We were working round the clock to prepare for the press con. I myself was running on little sleep for the entire week, practicing for my live segment, and I wanted to do certain things personally, such as making the little video montage of my songs that was playing before the event started, to share behind the scenes photos during this period.

Makeup call was 11am in the morning…and before I knew it, I was up on stage!

Can’t explain how excited I was to see everyone at the press conference, I especially noticed you sweet supporters in the room!!! My mind was racing with thoughts each time I spoke, and at times was at a lost for words as I stood there overwhelmed by emotions and gratitude….and erm tears.

希望我的歌能打动你们的心, 也能一直陪伴著你。
“55 : 38 : 7” from me, to you.
I hope it makes you laugh, dance, cry, smile, and fall in love….

请大家多多支持! 谢谢!

亲手做的手工。。和专辑里一首歌“恋爱女生都是羊”有关 :) .. making little nametags the night before..

Happily Hecticmous Maximous…as I count down to the album launch.

Album Preperations SK2

Ok, I made up that title :) I kinda like it as it sounds like what I wanna express: very happily hectic

I figured I will keep this entry short and sweet so I did a little collage about what I’ve been up to….And I can’t wait to share with YOU all about the album so I’ll be writing to you in a couple of days my dear friends. *UBER excited*.
First things first, I wanna thank you all for ur constant ♥ and support.

It has been an exciting ride from Day 1 when preparations for my debut album started a year ago.
We have been working non stop in every department possible. As much as there were days we tore each other’s hair out, or laughed ourselves crazy, everyday was filled with passion and love as the entire FM family poured our hearts into this.
p/s: I loose the hair tearing sessions because I have the longest hair in the team, but I’d like to think I won the laughing sessions cause I have a loud laughter. MUAH HA HA!

Left house when the sun was shinning, and return home when everyone is sleeping..Everyday, I was up to something, somewhere. Recording, combing Singapore for locations and props for my photo and MV shoots, events, gigs, countless meetings and brainstorm sessions, lyrics writing, album concept, song arrangements, styling, dress fittings, and a gazillion other things….

It got to a point where:
1) Communication with my family was reduced to notes on the table coz I’m working while they’re asleep and vice versa.
2) I was fast exhausting the jeans & tees collection in my wardrobe because I saw the team almost everyday.
3) I gave up wearing shoes and opted for flip flops whenever possible because they emerged to become my NO.1 mode of transportation.

There was a day I totally lost track of time and didn’t realize I was out for a whole day till my worried mom called me at 230am to ask if I was ok…sorry mommy.

And I wanna wish all mommys a HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!

Speak soon sweat peas!
