Question 1: What is Your Favourite Song? a.k.a. 30-day blog challenge

First of all, I would like to explain a few things: 

1. I copied this challenge from the Ketua Kuyat :)  (Beliau adalah Tai-ka-je kami, sila respek ok!)

2. This is a 30-day blog challenge but it does not mean that it has to be continuous.  It only means that you need to answer only one question per day.  


And since I really need to talk but nobody can afford to stay awake that long to listen to me, WTH let me just do this then.  


There are many songs that I love but this particular song will always be my favourite.  
It is a chinese song sung by my favourite idol, Jay Chou.  
I love this song not just for the melody but also because of the lyrics and its MV and the special effect (so it really is my favourite!).  


The title of the song is 你听得到 (Ni Ting De Dao) meaning You Can Hear It.  
Mesti takorang rasa heran pahal tajuk nya cam pelik jak bunyi.  Mestila bole dengar asalkan sik pekak.  
Tapi.... jeng jeng jeng..

This is the lyrics: 

有谁能比我知道
you shui neng bi wo zhi dao
 
Who can understand better than me
 
你的温柔像羽毛
ni de wen rou xiang yu mao
 
That your gentleness is like a feather


秘密躺在我怀抱
mi mi tang zai wo huai bao
A secret is lying in my lap


只有你能听得到
zhi you ni neng ting de dao 
(2nd time: dao de ting neng ni you zhi [see note on bottom*] ) 
Only you can hear it


还有没有人知道
hai you mei you ren zhi dao
 
Does anyone else know


你的微笑像拥抱
ni de wei xiao xiang yong bao
 
That your smile is like an embrace?


多想藏着你的好
duo xiang cang zhe ni de hao
How I want to hide your goodness

只有我看得到
zhi you wo kan de dao
 
So that only I can see it 

站在屋顶只对风说
zhan zai wu ding zhi dui feng shuo
 
Standing on the roof, facing the wind saying

不想被左右
bu xiang bei zuo you

That I don’t want to be pushed around


本来讨厌下雨的天空
ben lai tao yan xia yu de tian kong 
I used to hate the raining sky


 

直到听见有人说爱我
zhi dao ting jian you ren shuo ai wo
 
Until I heard someone say she loves me



坐在电影院的二楼
zuo zai dian ying yuan de er lou
 
Sitting on the second floor of the movie theatre

 

看人群走过
kan ren qun zou guo
 
Watching the crowd walk past

 

怎么那一天的我们
zen me na yi tian de wo men
 
Why did we on that day

 

都默默的微笑很久
dou mo mo de wei xiao hen jiu
 
Both quietly smile for so long?


 

我想我是太过依赖
wo xiang wo shi tai guo yi lai
 
I think that I am too dependent

在挂电话的刚才
zai gua dian hua de gang cai
 
When the phone hung up just now


坚持学单纯的小孩
jian chi xue dan chun de xiao hai
 
I persisted in acting like a naive child

静静看守这份爱
jing jing kan shou zhe fen ai
 
Silently guarding this piece of love

 

知道不能太依赖
zhi dao bu neng tai yi lai 

I know that I can't be too dependent


 

怕你会把我宠坏
pa ni hui ba wo chong huai 

Afraid that you would spoil me

 

你的香味一直徘徊
ni de xiang wei yi zhi pai huai 

Your fragrance constantly hovers

 

我舍不得离开
wo she bu de li kai
 
I am reluctant to leave

Repeat


Notes:
*This line is reversed the 2nd time around. Play the song backwards to hear "zhi you ni neng ting de dao."
Jay does it with a purpose, which is to create a line to suit the song title's theme so that only you can hear it.

And the video: 



Atau bagi yang tidak dapat tengok video itu atas sebab-sebab tertentu, hehehe, here is where you can download the mp3 version.  


Nice, right? 



Well, why does it still touch my heart so much even after eight years? 



Because... not everybody can listen.  



Sometimes, people don't hear you.  
But when they do, are they really listening? 
Even if they do listen, can they ever hear the real message behind your voice, your words, your pause? 



Makes you wonder eh? 



;) Enjoy!
