Update from Julie herself :
Woohoo! So many good songs choice. Yippeee!
Alice — Thanks for the help. =) I’m a ABC so my Chinese (Cantonese) is very limited and I can’t really read Chinese especially the simplified one. There is no way I can look up the word in the dictionary. Hehe! Your recommendation are good. I went to a wedding where the theme songs was from Jolin and David. I thought it was so sweet. Oh! I think Jay Chou is pure amazing! Have you seen him played the piano? That guy totally rocks!
I’m pretty open to any songs as long as it is happy happy one. It can be either old or new. I have a mixture of elderly and some young people so I was thinking it would be good to play the songs during dinner time when things are a little slow. It could be a conversation starter as they remember so and so singer. I do not want to trouble you too much. You are too kind la. Going to CD shop. Wow! I wasn’t expecting that. =)
Hi Yvonne — Thanks for your help. Jackie has one of the nicest voice I have ever heard. When I was growing up, my uncle used to traveled to Hong Kong every month on business trip and bring me back a CD. His main purpose was for me to learn Chinese. I remember the first time I listen to (Your name and my last name), I actually cried. That what I wanted. Someone to love and a fairy tale story. Hehe! I am such a hopeless romantic.
On another note, I do not know who is Wang Lee Hom, but I willing and open to any suggestion.
As far as what type of music? I really listen to a variety. Jackie Cheung, Andy Lau, Joey Yeung and Kelly Chan have not disappoint me so far. Oh! And Sammi Cheng before she disappear from HK Entertainment.
Hi Mei — Thanks for the help. I had to chuckle when I saw your list. You got the same taste in singer as me. I grew up listening to many of them and kind of forgot about it. Thanks for reminding me.
Interesting to say, all I can remember about these singers are the heartbreaking songs. Do you know any happy or love songs that is good for wedding by these artist. Do not want breakup songs as my parents are traditional Chinese and I might be scold for it.
Hi Cass — Wow! I got a local in the HOUSE! How cool is that. I always love to meet new friends and thanks to MB’s blog I got to know quite a few of them. That so awesome! Anyhow, my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. E-mail me sometimes. Maybe we can go out for a meal or meet at Starbucks.
Hi Phoebe — Wow! Thanks for the songs choice. Yes! Yes! I agree with you. The songs choices are good. My mom actually really like your recommendation. Thank! =)
Hi Frances — Thanks for the good wishes. =)
Hi Snow — Thanks for the recommendation. Fairy Tale is one of my favorite, but I remember that the girl die in the end, right? Might not be a good choice for happy happy wedding song, but Kelly Chan is good. I enjoyed watching her concert especially the one that she announce her marriage to Alex. Such a cute couple and lovely songs la.
And of course, MB (Jan), the queen of this blog. Without your kind heart and time in getting this blog running, I would not be able to get so many responses. You are truly one of a kind. Thank you for everything you do for me. You went up and beyond what I expected. Wow! I am totally speechless.
