Dusk

I was looking through the scenery photos I took from my apartment few months ago and I came across these photos taken at dusk.. At the same time, co-incidentally, my CD player is playing the "Song of Sunset" or 夕陽之歌 - the movie theme song of 英雄本色III夕陽之歌 (A Better Tomorrow III) by Anita Mui/梅艷芳. This is one of my favourite song and until now, I 'm using it as the default ringing tone for my handphone. This is the video link to the song (Courtesy of Slurp).

There is one Chinese phrase saying "夕阳無限好,只是近黃昏" which means no matter how beautiful is the sunset, it is near dusk.. Well, I don't agree with that :)

I love the striking colour of the cloud & the sky.. warm orange colour. Indeed I can spend hours looking out from the windows everyday (provided I'm free)..

_butt said...

Hey day dreamer, I was thinking of that Eason's song too when I saw the orange pic.. so warm and nice color ^^

Ahhh.. there's nothing more lovely than dusk. I liked the sky when it turned purplish too. :D

Chen said...

Mmmm.. might be u can consider.. shifting to Penang? ;) But no money back guarantee that u can see such sunset or such scenery everyday :P

winn,

I love the way u think :D
By just looking at the orange sky, u can have sufficient vitamin C supply for the day. LOLOL So no need to waste $$$ to buy Vitamin C liao. Good hoh?

day dreamer,
Give u another extra lollipop :P
Don't merajuk for too long..
I will sketch a pict of u eating lollipop, how about that? kakkaka...

Purplish sky? Woo... I don't have photo of purplish sky but some other colours. I will post it up one of these days :P

day-dreamer said...

Sorry Chen, I don't have the mp3 for that song. You can try to Google it and see.. :)

_butt said...

Ahahaha.. looks like Day Dreamer has high expectation there.

Day Dreamer: Yep, I loved most of Eason Chan's songs. Eh, he's coming to KL rite? Duno can get his tic or not leh (actually me tak sampai hati, so expensive ler~).. anybody wants to come with me? Or beta still, free tics??

Woops.. hope Doc Chen don't mind me chatting with Day Dreamer here.. heheh.

_butt said...
