Please, Sample some Bibi Chow

November 25, 2008 — 4 Comments

I know some *coughjulyssacough* tried to sample some Bibi Chow [aka. Zhou Bichang] but couldn’t. I just found out… you can sample all of Bibi’s music (sans download, I think) on her website. But ALAS! If you google Bibi Chow you won’t find her website… so I will make it easy. Bibi’s website is BibiSky.com – call me CRUISE, but I thought that was kinda NOT obvious… but oh well, okay.

It’s Flash-based, so can’t give you a direct URL to the music, but follow  this:

  1. enter BibiSky.com and wait for it to load.
  2. on the green menu [commonly known as the main navigation], click the first option
  3. you are on bibi’s desk now. there are 4 items on the sub-navigation.
  4. click on the 3rd item of the sub-navigation. this item will open the stereo on bibi’s desk.
  5. the stereo has its own navigation to go through bibi’s music [misc., EP, NOW/WOW + other stuff, and Who Touch my Violin String]
  6. listen away…

Enjoy,

Bibi Chow – WOW

October 5, 2008 — 3 Comments

So I was looking around the web for lyrics of WOW, the 2nd part of the 2-disc album by Bibi Chow, because I was listening to it last night, and on my search for it I ended up finding my own posts wondering about Bibi’s music. How lame is that? So I’ve decided to put that finding to good use and work on the lyrics of the album~ and if people seem to be interested in it, I might work on NOW (the 1st part of the 2-disc album) and her other lyrics…

Okay, so because I don’t speak or understand Chinese, please don’t ask for a translation… it takes enough time (20min if it’s easy) to figure out the right pinyin. Also, no automated-web translation postings… if you think of posting a translation in the comments, I hope it’s a translation job done by a person, otherwise it won’t get approved.

If you are posting the lyrics, please proper credit is appreciated, as well as a link back.

And if you’ve got corrections, please point them out… some of the songs are too fast for my ear… Here’s the link to the CHINESE lyrics.

OMG, are you watching?? I can hear millions of Asian girls swooning~~~ Wang Lee-Hom and Bi singing Beijing Beijing Wo Ai Beijing!!!! Poor Kelly Chen… who? Where was Guan Zhe, though??

Wo Ai Beijing - Lee Hom Wang and Bi Rain

American-Chinese musician Wang Lee-Hom, and Korean musician Bi (Rain) perform together Beijing Beijing Wo Ai Beijing in the Closing Ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics

Are you waiting for London? Eh, No~ What the heck was that, London? That looked more like a Superbowl half-time entertainment than an Olympic closing performance. We all love some Beckham… and some people love themselves some Leona Lewis and then some Led Zeppelin… but that was just so anticlimactic.

Anyway, going back. Closing ceremony was not as HOLY-CRAP-CAN’T-BELIEVE-THAT-I’M-SEEING-THIS, but it was pretty good. LOL’ I am still swooning over Wang Lee-Hom and Bi together….

I think one of my favorite parts was when the performers made the Olympic logo, because I’m so-oh-in-love with Dancing Beijing… unlike the ‘unnamed’??? 2012 London Logo. While watching the whole London Olympic sequence, I couldn’t help but think about school Motion Graphics. Yes, sure… aim at young people, but don’t alienate the older viewers. My mother sure didn’t appreciate that~~

Dancing Beijing - Memory Tower

Performers make the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics logo, Dancing Beijing, on the Memory Tower.

Moving on… again! Placido Domingo made an apperance! He sang alongside Song Zuying (which the dude on TV made sound like ‘Son Su Jin,’ which made me think she was Korean).

Hmm… will look for photos. Photos are everything… or at least a video clip. Did you swoon? Lee-Hom Wang and Bi deserve my swooning~~~ I hope you swooned!! xD

**EDIT** 8.54pm – Found some photos!

Chinese stories? Yah, in the Western Media.

Last week or so, my mother woke up to some news reporter, what else, talking about the Olympics. Such news report, title Cuento Chino (Chinese Story, as in Tall Tales?), broadcast sometime on Sunday (probably Reportajes) in Canal 2 (Frecuencia Latina).

Furious, my mother wrote a letter to one of those so-called opinion columns, for Somos magazine that is part of El Comercio newspaper.

Here is the copy of her email to them.
