Fallen Leaf

I’m uploading a video to YouTube. The animation of this video is made by Ken, and the music part is composed by myself! We made that in last year, and we hoped to promote environmental consciousness. ^0^

Fallen Leaf:

“The Mother Nature is weeping.

Her eyes will sooner or later run out of tears, wipe us out by drought and fear.

When the last leaf falls, I’m afraid this going to be the beginning of the falling of human civilization.”

Macau Cultural Centre

Graceful & Elegant—Chan Ngan Nei Piano Recital is holding tonight in the small auditorium of the Macao Cultural Center. The event is sponsored by Instituto Cultural, Fundação Macau, Fundação Henry Fok, and the Macao Cultural Centre. 🙂

Here is an introduction of the young pianist from Macao Pianists Association:

“Young pianist Chan Ngan Nei studies piano performance, music history, aural training, and music theory with Ms. Kam Cheok Weng since 2007. Systematic and comprehensive education had broadened her musical knowledge and improved her performance level remarkably in the past four years. She not only obtained the grade-eight certificate in piano performance, the diploma in piano performance, and the grade-eight certificate in music theory from the Associated Broad of the Royal Schools of Music, but had also participated in important concerts which she earned wide acclaim for her performances. The prizes she won in piano competitions include: third prize for Piano Works by Twentieth-Century Composer (Intermediate Level), third prize for Piano Works by Chinese Composer (Intermediate Level) in the Twenty-Seventh Macao Young Musicians Competition; second prize for Piano Works by Macao Composer in the Twenty-Fifth Macao Young Musicians Competition; second prize for Adolescent Junior Class in the Bach and Liszt Piano Competition of Macao 2007.

The recital features works with different national characteristics, such as the vivid and vigorous Italian Concerto by J.S. Bach; the melancholy “Laments or The Maiden and the Nightingale” by Spanish composer Granados; American composer MacDowell’s finest and most popular work Woodland Sketches; great Austrian composer Schubert’s charming impromptus, and Beethoven’s humorous Sonata Op. 14, No. 2.”

LAB 257

I can’t put down this book. LAB 257, written by Michael Christopher Carroll, is a fascinating and informative book which talks about what had happened on Plum Island. Sometimes a scientific truth is far more exciting and interesting than a science fiction. ^0^

Cineteatro Macau

Just watched a movie. The Adjustment Bureau talks about fate, love and free will. The story is about the affair between a politician and a ballerina which is affected by mysterious forces that keeps them apart. Sometimes I just wonder do we really have free will to choose our life or life chooses us…

What do you think?

I’m taking a break on the roof. =_-

People are going crazy to buy salt today! Some supermarkets and local stores here in Macau have run out of salt as a wave of panic buying spread from the Mainland. =_=

Rumors say that salt with iodine is believed to help protect people from nuclear radiation. I wonder why people believe in these kind of rumors. I would hope people could be a bit more rational and not to just follow “the crowd”.

Refund Order

I and my friends had planned to visit South Korea on next week, but I just canceled the trip due to what is happening at the moment in Japan. I think I wouldn’t enjoy the trip that much if I go now. I feel guilty if I were enjoying taking pictures in Seoul while others were still suffering in the earthquake zone. =_=

Pocket Universe

I’m not sure what we are doing here…but I guess I want to introduce you an amazing iphone astronomy application that you can’t miss. 🙂 It is Pocket Universe. A powerful astronomical tool which guides you to view any planets, Messier objects, constellations and bright stars, and the application uses arrows to guide your gaze both on screen and in reality. I’m truly impressed by it and now, I have the whole universe in my pocket! 🙂

Alien Invasion

Today we went to a cinema and watched “World Invasion Battle Los Angeles”. It’s a bad film with poor story line. It adds nothing new to the all to familiar alien invasion.
