watched my first musical in my entire life and it is 搭錯車, Glass Anatomy the Musical. Adapted from an award-winning 同名電影 from Taiwan, it is about a girl who was picked up by her mute dad and who raise her up till the very end by collecting and selling glass bottles. As she grows, she seeks to pursue her dream but blinded by fame, she 拋棄 her father and her neighbours and only to regret at the very end… hmm my story abit incomplete arh… but anyway, if you still have the time, catch it before it ends on the 12th, which happens to coincide with Mother’s Day.

The whole musical was a very touching one. Well, it will do some good if one go and do some research about the movie, so you will know what to anticipate for the show. The storyline is more or less the same, but having not watched the movie before, this musical really made me 感觸良多, quite a few times my tears were pooling at my eyes but haven flow out only… really very 感動!so do catch it if you really want to watch it.

saw many quotes in the program booklet which are very meaningful, sharing it with all of you. 🙂

“夢想就像上了色的玻璃,為生命帶來新姿彩。你為人生塗上了什麼顏色?”

“水晶燈絢麗奪目卻遙不可及。美麗需要代價,犧牲也是必然。軀殼上所堆積的塵埃又有誰能明了?”

“命運如外貌被推敲的玻璃瓶,固執的頑抗摧身碎首。無法改變的又如何執著?”

the lyrics have a very special meaning, do look through and think about it….

“没有天哪有地

没有地哪有家

没有家哪有你

没有你哪有我

是你抚养我长大

陪我说第一句话

是你给我一个家

让我与你共同拥有它”

and the paragraph at the very start of the booklet really set me thinking…

“《搭错车》述说的是爱与梦。

生活忙碌,名利夺目。

是努力奋斗或盲目追求?
梦想与理想只是一线之差。

一直往前冲,忘了回头望。爱也只能默默付出,
在无尽唏嘘中被遗忘。

选择往往不像玻璃那么透明清澈。
它背负着太多欲望。

放弃?谈何容易。

只有累了,失去了,才开始怀念简单的美好。

阿美到底是别无选择或在把握良机,
已无须追究。

想拥抱时或许太迟。

《搭错车》之后,你又如何选择?”

true enough, do not forget about the people around you while you pursue your dreams. while it may sound very cliche, it will otherwise be too late when you realised what the people around you, especially your family, has done to help you become who you are today, to allow you to be able to realise the dreams that you are aiming for.

ok… i shall not say so much less you all say i spoiler arh… haha… actually i don’t know how to express myself on what i want to say. all i can say is it’s a very good show and catch it while you can. 🙂

one paper down yesterday, 4 more to go. advanced corp accounting & reporting tomorrow…. consolidation/ equity accounting/ share-based payments/ fair value hedge/ amortization tables/ forex…. hope it will all turn out well tomorrow. 6 days to end of exams, 8 days to start of internship. WOW! really very fast… i can only enjoy my holidays the week before school starts, which is only a week long, right after my internship.

alright… have a good Sunday on this 5th of May, which is also the date for General Elections in Malaysia. shall get to my books already! Take care and 别忘了身边的人所为你付出的一切,珍惜并且感激,不要等到太迟了才后悔。
