Today, I am wishing for happiness….

Well I skipped a day (yesterday, but I did post 2 songs on Saturday :P) … but I’ll go ahead and make this Day 5. The weekend was an interesting one… I pulled an almost all-nighter, reminding me that I AM STILL YOUNG. I CAN STILL DO THIS 😀  Ju and Z and I came to our apartment Saturday evening, opened a bottle of wine (none of us had ever opened a bottle and it was quite interesting). We just sat and talked and at 4 am decide to watch an episode of Castle… which then turned into a slumber party in the middle of our apartment. Yesterday, we took a trip to the Great Wall (hahah supermarket) and Costco. My oh my, the Costco, at least the one in Gaithersburg, is viscious! I do not want to go back! I almost got injured trying to get samples! !!! One must learn to protect themselves, as I have done today… because we are all wishing for happiness, aren’t we? And so I have taken actions to protect myself 🙂 And it’s a almost sigh of relief.

Note: This song is from the mini-drama /mini-film that Rainie was in – “Wishing for Happiness” – if you’re interested, here’s Part 1 w/ English subs… and there should be 3 parts I think (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-klB8LyHpL8). And the song, the last two verses 🙂 are wonderful…

Wishing for Happiness – Rainie Yang

The fog in the heart,
The secret in the eyes.
The passion that didn’t have a chance to light
Has been extinguished by rumors.
Turn around and go back to loneliness.

The jungle of life,
The game of the being strong
Takes all the courage during the day,
Leaving the nights restless,
Not knowing where I went wrong.

I’m just a person wishing for happiness.
Why can’t I meet a fate that will take root?
Learning to quit pessimistic thoughts,
Not even hating those who betray me,
Making my soul whole, beautiful.

Still by myself.

I’m just a person wishing for happiness.
Why can’t I meet a fate that will take root?
Learning to quit pessimistic thoughts,
Not even hating those who betray me,
Making my soul whole, beautiful.

Solitarily being a person wishing for happiness.
Waiting for a heart to accept my honesty,
Understanding that the sweetness of love has a bitter component,
Who’ll argue with me, but our love will not suffer.
There’ll be no distrust.

I believe a person wishing for happiness
Must also be able to make others happy.
I’m not afraid of sacrifice and am willing to take responsibility.
The warm honesty gently mesmerizes.
Who is that person who can make me reach my passion?

A person wishing for happiness

  1. I like how your warning on Costco’s viciousness morphed into the need to protect oneself. They are related, I suppose! Free samples and happiness must be guarded closely!
