骚灵文|绿茶拿铁


你是个黑夜女神的化身,你孤傲、自命清高,或你的要求太高,或,众人只会欣,白昼阳光的明媚,或,他这样了,黑夜的惑。你笑了,你拿着手里的克杯,是杯 你最绿茶拿铁。“热绿茶拿铁,大杯,”你总是对barista这么说,他总是会意地对你笑笑,认出你是咖啡店里的熟客。而你,总是满意地拿着手中特大号的马克杯,从厚厚的瓷杯间,感受到隐隐约约、若隐若现的温暖。你总是喜欢这样感受幸福的方式,你说这是训练自己在忙碌到麻痹的生活中感受小确幸的方式。你走向自己的位置,是在咖啡店里最靠左,灯光较昏暗的角落,把自己的手电拿出,耳机带上,开启iTunes,让思绪暂时与世界隔绝。你也似乎习惯,也开始喜欢,开始依赖,这样的自己,孤独得怡然自得的自己。


人们总是喜欢问,为什么是绿茶拿铁,从前不是喜欢摩卡的吗。你笑了笑,摩卡,是由50%的咖啡, 50%的巧克力泡制而成,仰慕巧克力的时代,对你来说,已经是很遥远了吧。你喜欢绿茶拿铁淡淡的咖啡因,还有品尝完它之后在口齿中苦涩的余味。你的微笑是个假装,面无表情是一种自我防卫的方法,疲惫的眼神是留给镜子中的自己,孤芳自赏。有的时候你累了,只想要找个稳固的避风港,厚重的肩膀靠靠,却发现,到后来,只有自己孤身单影,你能靠的,也只有自己。有的时候你找不到方向,因为以前,你总是说,爱,就是我要走的方向,但如今,你放弃了爱,你要走往何方?夜深,你喝完最后一口的绿茶拿铁,回家,因为你知道回家之后,你将会再次与黑夜融合,与自己的灵魂夜谈。

歌曲飨宴|原来所有 所得 所获 都不如一夜的《星空》



曾经有一段时间很久没有听中文歌,而开始去 跟大队 跟潮流 去听一些美式音乐,贝斯音乐 DJ 刷盘 的音乐盛行肆虐,我开始相信:还会再听中文歌的人,应该绝种了吧?一直到开始接触《我是歌手2》,GEM,动力火车,曹格,品冠,还有其他的实力派的歌手,他们 让我找到了当初聆听中文歌曲的感动。

我记得在中二中三的这两年,是我创作的高峰期,写出来的作品现在回想起来都很有感觉。我记得我有写一篇《她说》,里面有提起“她”一直都很喜欢的星空。(那个“她”其实是我 哈哈好不害臊)不过我不知道现在我把那个文章丢去那里了感觉好可惜。

在中二那个时代,我刚搬了家,从房间的窗口探出就可以看到满天星星的夜空。当时的我感到好庆幸,庆幸诗巫是一个这么渺小的城市,没有任何污染能够阻挡我观赏这美丽的星空。而这一片美丽的星空,在画家梵谷的画笔下,成了一个简单又充满魔幻的千古神话。有的时候我在想,像梵谷这样性格的画家,是不是跟我一样,如此的钟爱这个星空,爱到,比起人类的陪伴,会更想要与这片无云无雨的星空作伴,这样的地步?

听到五月天的《星空》,是在中四那年,但是一直都不知道歌曲的名字,更不知道歌曲的创作者。昨天在YOUTUBE偶然听到这首歌,心里的情绪犹如波涛汹涌,久久不能平静,脑海中,高中时期的回忆一下子涌回来,眼泪一下子掉下来了。一直都知道插画家几米的《星空》,我本身很喜欢几米的画风,简单又不简单,复杂的用色中居然可以调出和谐温馨的色彩,简单几划的卡通没有太多多余的表情,确是真真实实的说出了我的心声。我在书店里看完了几米的绘本,眼泪又很不争气的掉了小来。

刚刚在YOUTUBE又看到这个视频,才发现原来几米和五月天的《星空》故事,居然是有关联的。熟悉的旋律,熟悉的插画,一层又一层地唱到了我的心里,感动满分。
最后只剩下星空,像不变回忆,陪着我。

五月天 - 星空

作詞:阿信
作曲:石頭
編曲:五月天
監製:五月天

摸不到的顏色 是否叫彩虹
看不到的擁抱 是否叫做微風
一個人 想著一個人 是否就叫寂寞

命運偷走因果 只留下結果
時間偷走初衷 只留下了苦衷
你來過 然後你走後 只留下星空

那一年我們望著星空 有那麼多的燦爛的夢
以為快樂會永久 像不變星空 陪著我


獵戶 天狼 織女 光年外沉默
回憶 青春 夢想 何時偷偷隕落
我愛過 然後我沈默 人海裡漂流

那一年我們望著星空 未來的未來從沒想過
當故事失去美夢 美夢失去線索 而我們失去聯絡

這一片無言無語星空 為什麼靜靜看我淚流
如果你在的時候 會不會伸手擁抱我

細數繁星閃爍 細數此生風波
原來所有所得所獲 不如一夜的星空
指中的溫柔 回憶裡的笑容
彷彿只要伸手就能觸摸

摸不到的顏色 是否叫彩虹
看不到的擁抱 是否叫做微風
一個人 習慣一個人

這一刻獨自望著星空 從前的從前從沒變過
寂寞可以是忍受 也可以是享受 享受僅有的擁有

那一年我們望著星空 有那麼多的燦爛的夢
至少回憶會永久 像不變星空陪著我
最後只剩下星空 像不變回憶陪著我

歌词真的很美,与大家共勉之!

就是要吐槽|老娘不发威把我当病猫是不是

since language polices love to pick my grammatical mistakes, I would write this post in Chinese. Take it. >:(

因为是华小生的关系,无可否认我的英文程度会比我的华文程度略低一成,我不会狡辩,我甘心接受这个事实。我已经很久没有在面子书上写状态的原因,除了是因为不想要把自己的心情、故事和盘托出给不相关的人听,还有一个原因是因为有一群喜欢挑人语言毛病的人总是拿着放大镜去看我的状态,然后把每个词语结构大卸八块、开刀解剖,然后在里面鸡蛋里挑骨头。

其实我真的很不明白,为什么你们要在我的状态下挑出我的语病(英文),如果你们的本意是要我学习,我尚可了解,我还要叩谢你们给了我一个这么宝贵的机会,但是,如果你们是想要显示出你们有多么了不起多么比我高人一等,我真的实在是太无语了。最讨厌的事一群香蕉人说着他们自己应以为傲的“国际语言”,却对自己的母语丝毫没有兴趣,还要打着“帮助华小生进步华文程度”的旗号招摇撞骗,还妄想我们被你们当众羞辱之后感谢你的提点。(在这里提醒:我不讨厌香蕉人,我只是讨厌那些自以为是的香蕉人,不要马上对号入座)如果你们真心想让我改正,你们可以在面子书私讯我,不必在广大的其他面子书用户的面前指出我的错误。我,已经厌倦了!

你不知道每次你们支支吾吾说出的华文有语病的时候我都是怎样忍住不当面指出吗?冰冻三尺非一日之寒,我忍你们很久了!

我。 已。 经。 受。 够。 了。 !

拜托你们离我远一点!

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

还有,比起你们,我们总比你们好太多了,我们至少比你们多会一种语言,我很想看看你们这些人到外国之后怎样被外国人嘲笑不懂自己的文化和语言。

我会华文,就算我说英文有所谓的中文腔,我还是应以为傲。

已经身心疲惫的,
黄祈颖

Frozen Addiction #02 | That ToK Homework Dr. Brice gave us

Question: “… of the knowledge that literature gives us: it enlarges our sense of human experience beyond the narrow limits within which we live our own lives, it takes us imaginatively into lives and parts of the world far different from our own. It can give us understanding of others unlike ourselves, and possibly opens us to caring.”

Art piece chosen: Frozen

Form of Art: Animation movie

Explanation:

Rosemaling patterned dress worn by Elsa the queen.

In the movie “Frozen” by Walt Disney animation, the storyline was taken place in a kingdom in Norway called Arendelle. In the film, the clothes designs of all of the characters are very much inspired by the rosemaling or in literal meaning “rose painting”. Rosemaling is a iconic pattern for the traditional Norwegian folks art and usually can be seen on furnitures or household objects such as drawers, cupboards, tables and chairs. There are several designs of rosemaling such as geometrical designs, symmetrical designs and some others which are filled with S swirls and C strokes. By incorporating the rosemaling designs into the character’s clothes, we as audience are able to understand and appreciate the art of rosemaling and it gives us an insight into the beautiful culture world of Norway.

Looking at the sophisticated rosemaling motifs, it enables me to value my country’s famous fabric design pattern, which is “batik”, which is initially originated from Indonesia. Batik was mentioned to be brought to Malaysia in the 17th century Malay annuals. Different from the batiks from the Indonesia, batiks from Malaysia have bigger and simpler patterns, absence of humans and animal motifs (to present being interpreted as idolatry as Malaysia is a Islamic country), flowers and leaves as popular motifs and brighter and more vibrant colours. It is interesting how art has been adapted and assimilated by a cultural group.

By noticing the difference between both of the cultures of Norway and Malaysia, I realised that art can comein different forms depends on your creativity and cultural influences. As an International Baccalaureate student I have learnt to celebrate the diversity of art and cultures around the world.

Colour Life | Pantone Misted Yellow - 14-0837

So the Pantone fashion colour fall report 2014 is finally out!

I always adore the fall season as the weather is neither too hot nor too cold. Fall is like the transition period between the summer and the winter. Besides I always love the idea of surrounding myself in the mist of yellow autumn leaves and having a cup of tea / reading a book / doodling / having small little talk with the one *cough* / doing homework / having a nap under autumn trees. That would be so romantic and sophisticating <3

One thing I just love the most about fall is, of course, the colour scheme!

As an autumn girl, I always intrigued by colours such as maroons, burgundies, tangerines, pumpkin oranges, mustard yellow, moss greens, army greens, cambridge blues, dark fuschias, violets and grays. Those colours represents classiness, elegance and mysteriousness.

Look at how amazing the colours are?! 

However, my favourite hue of this season is Misted Yellow! I just loveeee how this colour reminds me of that ray of sunbeam shining through the autumn leaves in the morning mist. The thought of just thinking about this warms up my heart literally! 

Look at how misted yellow compliments ivories, grays and blacks so well!

Which one is your favourite shades of yellow? ;)

similar colour, Bamboo appears to be fashion colour report in 2011

Adding a ray of sunlight and warmth, optimistic Misted Yellow alludes to the promise of spring to come. --Pantone


When I was young, my favourite colour is ALWAYS yellow, the pure yellow tho. Since I grew up, my favourite colour starts to change from blue, to red, to orange, to green, to pink and to purple. And I had come to a realisation that I actually love EVERY single shades of colour. I used to hate pink when I was young (such a tomboy) but now I had learnt to appreciate shades of pinks. 

Looking at Misted Yellow, this colour makes me fall in love with yellow all over again <3

Misted Yellow is such a special colour that really represents ME as a person. I am the type of girl who don't mind to shine bright occasionally but sometimes I do feel like being low-profile. This colour perfectly illustrates my character and I totally adore it! Who says being an INFJ couldn't love bright colours like yellow? (I really hate those online tests who always stereotype introverted people to have a tendency to like darker colours such as royal blue and violets more) 

Honestly when I realised Radiant Orchid is the colour of the year, I was shocked as there are rumours saying that dazzling blue is the colour of the year 2014. I hated it for one month and slowly I accepted the colour. 

However my fav is still Misted Yellow and hence I would like to declare (haha weird term) that Misted Yellow to be the colour of my year 2014! :> 

Oh, btw, would have any particular song that reminds you of certain colour? For me, these songs really remind me the colour Misted Yellow :)




GEM TANG is my girl crush recently *shy*
Look her up on "I am a singer" show from China :)
She is a famous and very talented singer from Hong Kong <3

Do you wanna add a bit of optimistic sunlight in your 2014? ;)
(even though now it's like the beginning of March already, but it is better late than never right, HAHA)


Lotsa love,
Dandioy
