Kevin Chen's songs

我们 (当我们同在一起)
 wǒ men (dāng wǒmen tòng zài yīqǐ)
Together


一条街有多长 年少就多长
yī tiáo jiē yǒu duō zhǎng nián shǎo jiù duō zhǎng
 A street in our youth is filled with memories

我时常都回到
wǒ shí cháng dōu huí dào
I often return 

昨天去徜徉 
zuó tiān qù cháng yáng
to the past to linger

那外面有多大 用笑声去丈量
nà wài mian yǒu duō dà yòng xiào shēng qù zhàng liáng
How big the outside world is,  I measure it with my laughter 

你背影有多长 思念就多长
nǐ bèi yǐng yǒu duō zhǎng   sī niàn jiù duō zhǎng
The further you are from me, the greater is my longing
我们总是这样 借彼此肩膀
wǒmen zǒng shì zhè yàng    jiè bǐ cǐ jiān bǎng
We are always leaning on each other's shoulder

我们总是错过 幸福那一站
Wǒ men zǒng shì cuò guò xìng fú nà yī zhàn
We are always missing happiness along the way 

拥有了全世界 可是你却看不见
Yōng yǒu le quán shì jiè   kě shì nǐ què kàn bujiàn
We have the whole world in our hands but still we cannot see 

我宁愿重回到那一年
wǒ nìng yuàn chóng huí dào nà yī nián 
I would rather go back to that year
 牵着去你看明天
qiān zhe  qù nǐ kàn míng tiān
Hand-in-hand with you to watch a new day begin 

失去了全世界 还有你在我身边
shī qù le quán shì  jiè  hái yǒu nǐ zài wǒ shēn biān
If I lose the whole world(everything), I still have you by my side 

能不能重回到那一年
néng bù néng chóng huí dào nà yī nián
Is it possible to return to that particular year 

 你的梦 我的歌 蓝的天 叫永远 
nǐ de mèng wǒ de gē lán de tiān jiào yǒngyuǎn
Your dream, my song, the blue sky and all that we thought was forever

能不能重回到那一年
néng  bù néng chóng huí dào nà yī nián 
Is it possible to return to that particular year
你的梦 我的歌 蓝的天 叫永远
nǐ de mèng wǒ de gē lán de tiān jiào yǒng yuǎn
Your dream, my song, the blue sky and all that we thought was forever

My precious books

Most, if not all of these books are available in our local libraries. I own them so that I could have them with me all the time not having to bother with return dates and fines. These books are not cheap but they are affordable to me and I always wait for discounts of 20% at the stores so that the purchases are more worth the money paid.

These books are on Chinese Calligraphy and painting.
These are exhibition catalogues or magazines on Calligraphy and painting,two of them were given to me free of charge.
These are books on the history of China and Chinese Art.
Three of these are books on Cantonese Opera bought at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum and the one on the top right is a Hong Kong magazine that I bought at Bras Basah.
These are books on Chinese Art except the one on the top left which is a book on nature written by a Singaporean teacher and it is in Chinese.
If I have another life to lead, I would want to be given the luxury to finish reading these books.
