back~ [download] PVs

I'm back~ The school year is finally over and I have one week until summer classes begin. It's an easy class though, so I'm not worried.
I've missed this place. And apparently a lot of news too. LOTS of Arashi, KAT-TUN, Yamapi (and his ties to the government) but not NEWS :(, summer dramas (heh, I haven't even kept up with the spring ones...I started Sunao and Tumbling but haven't gotten far at all.) and Ryo on VS Arashi. teehee.
I could keep going, but that would probably just get annoying. xD

[lyrics] Michael Wong - Little Sister

I'm back from hiatus! I said I'd be back with drama review or fanfic, but I lied. I'm back with lyrics! (The fanfic is coming and perhaps a drama review sooner or later.)

Translating is so useful for practicing Chinese. I'm awful at writing, decent at reading, good at speaking/understanding, and awful at translating. x] And also awful at pin-yin so I hope you forgive that. It doesn't help that Malaysian(?) pronunciation is slightly different from Mandarin.



This is absolutely the sweetest song ever. It looks at a painful love from a different point of view than we're used to--from the older brother's perspective. I wish I had an older brother like that. ;]

[download] 20080813 HK interview

I wasn't originally planning to sub this video, just wanted to translate it and see what they were saying. Then I thought to myself, why not sub it? So here it is. This project has made me appreciate subbers 10x more than before.


Some problems:
1. I'm Chinese, so the translations are based off of the subtitles. There's probably a lot lost in translation from Japanese to Chinese to English.
2. Unfortunately, I don't understand Cantonese, so I wasn't able to sub the other parts of the video, although they are probably mostly just promotion stuff. (If anyone understands and is willing to translate, I'll be glad to sub the rest.)
3. The quality of the raw video wasn't great, so the quality of the final subbed video really isn't great at all. Sorry, I repost if I can find a better quality raw!

I might sub a few other files, life time permitting.

[lyrics] Evan Yo - Hot Air Balloon

So I was feeling a little bored the other day, now that summer school is over, so I've translated the lyrics to 蔡旻佑 (Evan Yo)'s song 热气球 (Hot Air Balloon). This has the characters (simplified, taken straight from the CD insert thing, so they're accurate), pinyin, and English translation. This is my first time translating anything and the pinyin is translated by ear (I haven't used it for a while), so it's very likely that there are mistakes. I've also put in some literal or alternative translations for anyone who's picky about that.
