The Council Chairman Bowl: V-Sing-Along 20/21

網上歌唱比賽​

Online Singing Contest

Team 1 "七里香"

Entry 001 “七里香” is created by CHENG Yan and Mr Kay ZHANG (Resident Tutor), members of Mosaic College. Here’s their message: 

《七里香》是周杰倫2004年發行的歌曲,自己的譜曲並由方文山作詞。歌曲中不斷出現“雨下整夜我的愛溢出就像雨水”正是藉下了一夜的雨水錶現愛如潮水, 不懂得保留,容不得一絲污漬和取代。這首歌周杰倫跳脫出中國古典風情,多的是時過境遷後依然存留的愛意,像一粒飽滿的稻穗。

 

Team 2 "搖籃曲"

Entry 002 “搖籃曲” is created by LEUNG Hei Tung and CHANG Wan Pui from S H Ho Wellness College. Here’s their message: 

這首歌使我聯想起自己年幼時經常使母親感到心痛,回憶起曾經的自己。舊時的我,每當媽媽與我外出經過玩具店時,我總會嘈著讓媽媽購買洋公仔給我,如媽媽不願的話,我總會喊著讓媽媽心軟,從而買給我。當我升上中學,踏入青春期時,那時的我不知天高地厚,不斷的碰釘,不斷的與媽媽對罵,不斷的傷害她的心。現在回想,後悔不已,希望各位宿生可以珍惜與父母相處的時間,儘管曾經傷害過他們,但是現在亦可把握機會好好地孝順父母。

Team 3 "See you again"

Entry 003 “See you again” is created by MA Ching Lam and FONG Hei Tung Crystal from S H Ho Wellness College. Here’s their message:

We have been physically separated, there is a social distance between us.  We avoid contact with people and refuse to gather. We even cannot have dinner like usual. It seems the distance between us is getting farther and farther. It’s been a long time to meet friends, teachers, or even family.

However, Masks and viruses will not separate us forever.

Just hang on a little bit longer. And We will eventually ride out the storm
If winter comes, can Spring be far behind?

Life will slowly return to normal, and we have gradually learned how to protect ourselves…
Whatever’s we are…You and I will always collide.

I wish to…
I believe to…
I know we will…
We will see you again
Soon, Very Soon
And I have got lots to tell you.

Team 4 "Losing Me"

Entry 004 “Losing Me” is created by ZHAO Shi Cong, Sabrina, and PENG Jin Xun, Carly from S H Ho Wellness College. Here’s their message:

 “Losing Me” is a song by English singer-songwriters Gabrielle Aplin and JP Cooper. It expresses that love is all around, so when you can’t hold on, just fall apart. It doesn’t matter how you vent, because I will always be here with you, and you won’t lose me. 

“Life itself is a matter of small probability. We are a group of higher intelligence formed by the stars, meeting in the wilderness of time and the infinite array of trillions of possibilities of space. It’s absurd, like the water of a waterfall flowing upstream, like a can of fish kissing a cat, like there are eighty days in August, like a rose of all days is love, and I all days is like you.” 

As Aplin said, “‘Losing Me’ is hopeful. It covers what you want to hear when you’re going through dark times and what you should say when you’re somebody’s shoulder”.

Team 5 "微微"

Entry 005 “See you again” is created by LI Yuexiang, ZHONG Jing and YU Wenchengze from Patrick S C Poon Amity College. Here’s their message: 

 

微微》講述了渺小的我們也能遇見自己的晨光,渺小的我們在世界裏雖然微小但並不弱小。我們雖然對於這個世界來說非常的渺小,但是我們的身邊滿是愛和溫暖。這種可以像彩虹,像細細雨滴,像陽光一樣照進我們的生命裏。我們雖然渺小,但是充滿力量。在歲月蹉跎裏不斷行走,就像是不知疲倦的一種存在般。無論是面前的困難再大,會迷茫還是會跌倒,微微從來沒有放棄過,它會在多次的尋找中選擇勇敢地向前闖。微微們相互扶持,互相鼓勵,如同微微晨光點亮這喧囂的世界。微微就是我們,微微從不停歇。正因為有微微的愛,微微才能勇敢地面對所有的困難,不畏迷茫,不懼疲憊。僅以此歌獻給所有奔走在自己的熱愛中的人們。

Team 6 "永不失聯的愛"

Entry 006 “永不失聯的愛” is created by CHIN Wing Man and IP Hiu Yin from Evergreen College. Here’s their message:

 

《永不失聯的愛》是一首想似乎挽留那些即將分道揚鑣的男女,習慣了對方的存在和依賴,並不想就此分開。有人說:何為失聯?我們都知道對方就在世界的某一個角落,只是我們都不願意做第一個去靠近的人。世界這麼大,人與人的命運有太多不同。幸好這世界有愛的存在,可以吹散一切陰霾,消除一切隔閡。世間的愛如海納百川,有很多種。誰都不想擁有一段一輩子都永不失聯的愛,

Team 7 "刻在我心底的名字"

Entry 007 “刻在我心底的名字” is created by LAU Chun Wai and CHOW Chin Hoi from Evergreen College. Here’s their message:

是次主題為love is all around 。令我們聯想到疫情期間愛侶,親人以至師生都無法好好會面的悲痛。減少了會面,彼此間的關係難免會因而變得疏離。甚至會質疑自己的重要性,感到孤獨寂寞。

 

因此,我們揀選了近年熱門的「刻在我心底的名字」。在這如斯艱難的時刻亦提醒各師生 關係的可貴在於不受地域,時間所限。每個人心中都有一位難以代替的人,一直支撐著我們成長,面對刻下困境。在此,祝各師生身體健康,來年更上一層樓🙂
