Li Mao Shan and Lin Shu Rong in concert again.......

For those familiar with the late 80s Taiwanese music scene, Li Mao Shan (李茂山) and Lin Shu Rong (林淑容) would be recognizable names. Even if you are not a fan, you would have heard of their hit duet “Wu Yan De Jie Ju” which took the Chinese music scene by storm and had everyone singing along at karaoke in the 80s. i just learn that the two will be performing together again on june 7 for their first ever concert in Singapore!that would be an event of a life time to go to.
here is a video of these two talented artist performing their hit song Wu yan de jie ju

I used to hear this song all the time when i was a Kid, Again this song brought back some good memories.

A day in the life of the Liu's family........

I took my little girl out for ice cream today, and i just sat there and watched her eat scoops after scoops of Ice cream, it was just a year ago when i had to hold her bottle because her tiny fingers were not strong enough to hold them, now can you believe she don't even want me to help her hold the spoon.

Keira and me at dairy queen.

My baby is all grown now.

Here is a video about a year and a half ago of my family getting ready to welcome our baby girl into the world.

Thank you all for spending a little time with my family.

Beautiful Hokkien song from Taiwan...

Here is one of my all time favorite Taiwanese song sang in Hokkien a dialect in Taiwan.
Many other artists including Timi Zhou have their own randition of the song, but i like this randition of the song by Joyce Lim the best.
the song is call 爱拼才会赢 which means, Keep working hard to succeed.

I am not sure if Joyce Lim is Taiwanese, i always thought she was Malaysian, But who cares right? the sing is still great.
Enjoy folks.
