‘Starting Now’ is written and sung by local songstress Tay Kewei. It’s the theme song of a current drama serial on entrepreneurship here in Singapore. Titled Start Up!《创!》, it looks into the trials and tribulations of entrepreneurship including betrayal. (No forms of betrayal going on in real life, thankfully. (;)
I did this cover on a whim one weekday – because I loved the melody and the lyrics struck so deep a chord I just wanted to sing it. Yes, that is my voice you’re listening to, and me strumming the ukulele in the background.
This is a tribute to you guys, and everyone out there breaking out of the conventional mould and chasing their dreams. Keep pushing on!
Tay Kewei (郑可为) – Starting Now
同样的悔过 同样的脆弱 共同的脉搏
不要再等候 不要再懦弱 命运自己掌握
开创新的以后 下定决心 就绝不退缩
勇闯未来的梦 相信自己 就放手一搏
Starting now 热血 带领我 冒险
同样的借口 同样的节奏 时间不停留
现在是时候 现在就行动 不向现实低头
The lack of posts over the past 4 months is almost guaranteed to make my blog readership fall to zero. Strangely, I take quite a fair bit of pleasure in that. With Facebook and Twitter (along with all the associated voyeurism) dominating our lives now, it’s a huge breath of fresh air to be able to write somewhere away from all the noise.
I get introspective too often, and there have been so many positive memories and moments that have gone uncaptured for too long. So hello again, my dear blog. I’ll make an effort to write in you again.
And if anyone is still reading, Merry Christmas!
I wish I’ve done this earlier – removing the clutter from the previous interface and just leaving it clean and simple so that I’ll be inspired to actually write.
At last, I did.
Finally, my torrent of updates from my San Francisco trip earlier this month can begin. I’ll be posting random pictures, quips and adventures from my two and a half week trip over the next couple of weeks in no particular order. Stay tuned.
Meanwhile, happy hunting for the little ‘easter eggs’ (random doodles with my mouse) I’ve scattered around the site. Here’s your first hint – the navigation.
