I’m glad the LA fire is not a threat anymore, all I could think of Sunday afternoon was how I could protect my childhood photos and things/memories from elementary/secondary school… It’s funny at moments like those the most important things are paper that has turned yellow and photos which colors aren’t vibrant anymore, instead of the newest gadget just purchased or the most expensive piece of clothing/jewelry I own.  I felt like I could hear the police bang on the door and the shouting of “you’ve got 5 mins!!” any second… luckily that did not happen.  I’m grateful that I’m lucky, and I wish those who are gravely affected by this fire will be okay.

The blackened hillside I drive by everyday has stained the air and the memories of some people now…

This is another song that I edited the lyric for fun. The original song is “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”. The new lyric is in Cantonese. This was actually for a friend’s wedding. For people from Hong Kong, there’s a tradition for the bride’s girlfriends to play games with the groom before he can “win” the bride and take her to the wedding ceremony. For this instance, one of the games was for the groom to sing this song for his very lovely wife-to-be who was anxiously waiting for him to “pass” all the games to take her away.

Christmas is coming, chipmunks are singing:
