இ Happy Papa's Day ~ <搭錯車> 酒矸倘賣嘸?

Happy Papa's Day to All Dear Fathers! Yes this is a Great Day to celebrate with Papas. Bananaz would only have sweet memories of my Papa and truly loves this part of the lyrics literally translated from the Mandarin song and it's specially dedicated to my dear beloved late Papa.

[Without heaven there is no earth,
Without earth there is no home,
Without home there is no you,
Without you there is no me].

No doubt my Papa a typical Chinaman, not expressive with loving words outwardly had never ever said "I Love You" to me before in his entire life but feeling his love and good vibes is already a blessings. If given a chance to rewind the clock would wish to have the opportunity to hug each other dearly coz we have not done this before and also to tell him "I Love You Papa". So people, cherish the precious moments while you still have the chance to say and do what you feel is best to your dear parents NOW! Can never ever forget my Papa's golden principle in life instilled in me over the years who walked the talk with his ~ 信用是本錢 [xìn yòng shì běn qián] means trustworthiness is a person's greatest capital/asset.

The MTV sung by Julie SuRui (苏芮) is a Taiwanese film about a mute war veteran uncle (孫越 Sun Yue) who collects empty wine bottles and sells them for a living. While on his rounds found an adorable abundant baby girl and brought her home and raised her up against all odds. Because of peer pressure not to jeopardize her singing career she was 'forced' not to reveal her relationship with her mute 'Papa'. How sad.. <搭錯車> The English name of the film [Papa, Can You Hear Me Sing?] won the Best Actor ( 孫越 Sun Yue), best original music, the best episode and best recording awards from the Golden Horse Awards in 1983.

Happy Father's Day to everyone. :D

Autumn Belle @ KDP said...

That's a beautiful tribute for Father's Day. Like you, it was not easy for me to say the magic words or to hug my dad. Now that mine is in heaven, I'll reserve all my hugs and wishes 'in memory of'. I would like to wish all your visitors a "Happy Father's Day".

Bengbeng said...

Happy fathers' day to all out there. I remember this song. i remember paying 65 sen ( compared to today's rates for tickets.. wow ) for a third class ticket at the local cinema n tears poured out for the poor old man. this is one of my most memorable songs of my youth

Caroline Ng May Ling said...

Happy Papa's day! :) sorry to know bout ur dad. :) Sweet memories will not be fading away so keep it. :)

suituapui said...

Yes...I saw that movie - Papa, can you hear me sing...and I love all the songs in it!!!

Happy Father's Day to all dads... Most important is to be with them, spend time with them and love them, and cherish them while they are still around - make sure they are happy in this world and even in the next.

RoseBelle said...

Sounds like tear-dropper movie. I'll have to see if I can watch it on one of those online sites.

I asked my dad once about his dad and he said he didn't know much about his dad. I then asked why and my dad said back in the days, there are no open discussions between parents and kids. The kids don't ask their parents questions and the parents don't openly display emotions or love. There was not hugging or kissing or saying "I love you". I just thought how time has changed.

Kelvin said...

Tats my dad favorite song^^

Wenny Yap said...

This movie was a tear-jerker ... I bawled watching it and hubby had the pleasure of laughing at me all the way.

Happy Father's Day!

Merryn said...

very touching... you have a nice day there Bananaz :)

CH Voon said...

daddy only one in the world... spend valuable time with daddy.

we cannot turn back the clock but... what we can do is keep the memory in our heart!

CH Voon said...

this is a old song but really meaningful... touching my heart too sob sob sob. time pass so fast... we cannot wait because our parent keep goint old... ...

cleffairy said...

I'm boohoo-ing. And I dunno why. Happy father's day to all dads.

manglish said...

it was suchhhhhhhhhhhhh a touching movie...i can still remember the ending.....and i watched it when i was 10...sigh....

[SK] said...

yeah, i guess most of our dad are typical chinese which are not so expressive about their love right??

[SK] said...

and i guess we are all brought up under such environment, and to us Asian (at least at my generation) it's so difficult to say "I Love You" to anyone in the family..

[SK] said...

everything is done such a subtle way to show our love and care.. and this song is dedicated to your dad, i'm sure he will be able to feel your love.. :)

[SK] said...

wow, translation for this song in English!! you are superb dude, haha!! i remember this is a very very touching movie back then, everyone cries while watching..

Keats The Sunshine Girl said...

We couldn't get much out of our father. He was a very quiet man but the most hardworking and simple man. happy Father's Day to all fathers.

fufu said...

酒矸倘賣嘸。。。nice song!!! make me wanna cry ><

Shingo T said...

Haha, somehow I find this entry a little sweet.

Happy Papa's Day to your papa, Bananaz, and all the papas in the world.

wenn said...

Are u a father yet? anyway, happy belated father's day to all fathers!

Bananazஇ said...

reanaclaire இ the loved ones may be gone but the sweet memories stay.

Tekkaus இ you have a great time with your dad.

Autumn Belle இ guess for Asian and those older generation would be more reserved, yeah with the old folks gone can only place them in out hearts.

Caroline இ its OK for me no problem you take good care of your mom & dad.

Rose Belle இ Old folks were 'silent' when expressing their love
but would always involved the children to accompany grandpa to see circus or outside activities.

Bananazஇ said...

Bengbeng & Rose Belle இ whoa see how much the inflation has hiked up the price of tickets. Rose Belle watch the movie with tissues on standby please haha.

suituapui இ can only remember this song and its very touching. tQ great message from you, very well said. tQ.

Kelvin இ your dad's favorite eh, did you sing to him from S'pore?

Bananazஇ said...

Wenny Yap இ would be very surprised if you had not cried haha..

Merryn இ sorry you may not understand a single word of the song hope you can feel it haha.

CH Voon இ tQ for your message to keep loving parents when they are around. Cant help thinking of Vanessa while watching the video at 2.07 with her action when the little gal spoke her first word 'papa'.

cleffairy இ oops sorry to cause tears for no reason but good to 'wash' the eyes at times.

Bananazஇ said...

manglish இ great memory at age 10 guess not cluttered then. Agreed a very touching movie.

[SK] இ upbringing and style of the ancient times are so different now and I do see some major changes with the new generation how to hug and kiss their children. The translation was not my original but have done up a lot of amendments hehe.

Keats இ most comments would have said about the same on older folks style of being the head of the family. tQ.

Shingo T இ when you yourself is sweet you will find sweetness everywhere. tQ.

wenn இ I am will always have lots of hugs & kisses thankz so much.


fufu இ the lyrics are very touching and it was during the last day of my dad's funeral the 'band' played this song that made me cried like a baby.

MODERN ROBINSON CRUSOE said...

Yeah watched the movie long the time ago....Hope you had a good father's day celebration :)

Bananazஇ said...

MODERN ROBINSON CRUSOE இ think the cinema would be littered with full of tissue papers then..tQ.

Netster said...

Well Said Bananaz!

[Without heaven there is no earth,
Without earth there is no home,
Without home there is no you,
Without you there is no me].

Happy Father's Day, Bananaz!

Bananazஇ said...
