Music Monday - Huang Hun

It isn’t great when you have so many songs that related to you lately. You simply have tons of songs to put in your blog for Music Monday for their own stories! Maybe that was why I didn’t want to get involve at first lol.

Today is Sunday Jan 25 and what the heck am I waking up so early? Its 5am in the morning and the only friends that are available for a chat via YM are those who are not living in Malaysia. I did buzz a few.

After few considerations, I will write about 3 songs and make them a scheduled post. So I won’t have a spinning head anymore about which should be first, second and so on.

Let’s start with Huang Hun.

This song is pretty old but it has its schmaltzy value. Someone who was dear to me dedicated this song even though knows that I don’t speak or read Mandarin (even though I took Mandarin class when I was 22), Cantonese or even Hokkien.

The song is beguiling and without understand a word I could feel the sorrowfulness by listening to it. I could easily have soggy eyes every time I listen to this song.

It was a long time ago.

At the age of 27 (I know I will be 28 years old this year, you don’t need to jog my memory), I seek for its meaning. Now I know why the song was dedicated to me. I guess it’s not too late to summon up my old memories?



Here the direct translation I took somewhere on the net:

Huang Hun
Dusk

guo wan zheng ge xia tian
After the whole summer,

you shang bing mei you hao yi dian
my sadness still did not improve.

kai che xing chi zai gong lu wu ji wu bian
Driving my car on the vast, boundless roads,

you li kai zi ji de gan jue
I feel that I’m getting out of touch with myself.

chang bu wan yi shou ge
The song that I could not finish singing,

pi juan hai sheng xia hei yan quan
Left me so tired that there are rings around my eyes.

gan qing de shi jie shang hai zai suo nan mian
It is inevitable to get hurt in the realm of love,

huang hun zai mei zhong yao hei ye
No matter how beautiful the dusk is, the dark night must follow.

yi ran ji de cong ni kou zhong shuo chu zai jian jian jue ru tie
I recall that you said, “Goodbye” with a tone of steel,

hun an zhong you zhong lie ri zhuo shen de cuo gan
I had a delusion of being burnt by the sun in the darkening dusk.

huang hun de di ping xian
The horizon at dusk,

hua chu yi ju gao bie
Drew out your line of, “Farewell.”

ai qing jing ru yong ye
Love plunges into eternal night.

yi ran ji de cong ni yan zhong hua luo de lei shang xin yu jue
I still remember the tears falling from your desolated eyes.

hun luan zhong you zhong re lei shao shang de cuo gan
In the confusion, there is an illusion of being burnt by the hot tears.

huang hun de di ping xian
The horizon at dusk,

ge duan xing fu xi yue
Severed happiness and joy.

xiang ai yi jing hui mie
Love has already been destroyed.

  2. Ann - I took Mandarin class before but for some reasons I couldn't speak (thanks to my Chinese friends who only speak Hokkien and to her that didn't want to teach me Mandarin for insecurity that I will grab another amoi).

    Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

    Winning the Game

    The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

    There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

    Bingo Game Rules

    Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

    Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

    Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

    Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.
