Jay Chou Jie Lun – Qing Hua Ci

青花瓷 |Qing Hua Ci| Blue and White Porcelain

曲:- 周杰倫
Qu:- Zhou Jie Lun
Music:- Jay Chou

詞:- 方文山
Ci:- Fang Wen Shan
Lyrics:- Vincent Fang

素胚勾勒出青花筆鋒濃轉淡
su pei gou le chu qing hua bi feng nong zhuan dan
The brush outlines a beautiful pattern, brush strokes becoming lighter

瓶身描繪的牡丹一如妳初妝
ping shen miao hui de mu dan yi ru ni chu zhuang
The peony on the bottle, simplest beauty, just like you

冉冉檀香透過窗心事我了然
ran ran tan xiang tou gou chuang xin shi wo liao ran
Whiffs of incense smoke bring your troubles to my heart

宣紙上走筆至此擱一半
xuan zhi shang zou bi zhi ci ge yi ban
I pause halfway while painting

釉色渲染仕女圖韻味被私藏
you se xuan ran shi nv tu yun wei bei si cang
The glazing of the lady’s portrait hides her charm

而妳嫣然的一笑如含苞待放
er ni yan ran de yi xiao ru han bao dai fang
Your smile, to me, like a budding flower

妳的美一縷飄散 去到我去不了的地方
ni de mei yi lv piao san / qu dao wo qu bu liao de di fang
But your beauty dissipates like smoke, to a place I can never reach

#天青色等煙雨 而我在等妳 (1)
tian qing se deng yan yu / er wo zai deng ni
The perfect shade of blue awaits the right weather, like how I wait for you

炊煙裊裊昇起 隔江千萬里
chui yan niao niao sheng qi / ge jiang qian wan li
From a thousand miles away, I gaze at the curling chimney smoke

在瓶底書漢隸仿前朝的飄逸
zai ping di shu han li fang qian zhao de piao yi
The calligraphy beneath the bottle, elegance of the Han Dynasty

就當我為遇見妳伏筆
jiu dang wo wei yu jian ni fu bi
Our meeting I foreshadowed

*天青色等煙雨 而我在等妳 (1)
tian qing se deng yan yu / er wo zai deng ni
The perfect shade of blue awaits the right weather, like how I wait for you

月色被打撈起 暈開了結局
yue se bei da lao qi / yun kai liao jie ju
The moonlight smudged away the remnants of our ending

如傳世的青花瓷自顧自美麗 妳眼帶笑意
ru zhuan shi de qing hua ci zi gu zi mei li / ni yan dai xiao yi
Like legendary porcelain obsessed with itself, your eyes full of laughter

色白花青的錦鯉躍然於碗底
se bai hua qing de jin li yue ran yu wan di
Those blue carp seem to come alive on the white bowl

臨摹宋體落款時卻惦記著妳 (2)
lin mo song ti luo kan shi que dian ji zhe ni
While I am imitating the Song inscription I’m thinking of you

妳隱藏在窯燒裡千年的秘密
ni yin cang zai yao shao li qian nian de mi mi
The eon of secrets you buried in the kiln

極細膩猶如繡花針落地
ji xi ni you ru xiu hua zhen luo di
It’s exquisiteness like an embroidery needle

簾外芭蕉惹驟雨門環惹銅綠 (3)
lian wai ba jiao re zhou yu men huan re tong lv
The banana tree outside brought the sudden downpour, and in turn the copper rust on the door handle

而我路過那江南小鎮惹了妳 (3)
er wo lu guo na jiang nan xiao zhen re le ni
My passing by Jiangnan brings me to you

在潑墨山水畫(4) 裡 妳從墨色深處被隱去(5)
zai po mo shan shui hua li / ni cong mo se shen chu bei yin qu
Yet you fade away into the deep abyss of the Chinese painting

A crescent moon, my loved one  is waned and sallow

我举杯 饮尽了风雪

I raise a cup and drank in the frost

是谁打翻前世柜

Who overturned the box of incarnations

惹尘埃是非

Evoking arguments

缘字诀 几番轮回
yuan zi jue / ji fan lun hui
A predestined formula of fate undergoes countless reincarnations

你锁眉 哭红颜唤不回
ni suo mei / ku hong yan huan bu hui
You frowned, crying  for love lost

纵然青史已经成灰
zong ran qing shi yi jing cheng hui
Even if the annals of history had already become dust

我爱不灭
wo ai bu mie
My love will not disappear

繁华如三千东流水
fan hua ru san qian dong liu shui
Grandeur is like three thousand waters flowing south

我只取一瓢爱了解
wo zhi qu yi piao ai liao jie
Yet I only choose a ladle of love to comprehend

只恋你化身的蝶
zhi lian ni hua shen de die
Only long for your butterfly incarnation

你发如雪 凄美了离别
ni fa ru xue / qi mei le li bie
Your hair is like snow, making our parting chillingly beautiful

我焚香感动了谁
wo fen xiang gan dong le shui
Who’s moved by my (offerings of) incense?

邀明月让回忆皎洁

Inviting the full moon to highlight my memories

爱在月光下完美
ai zai yue guang xia wan mei
Love becomes pure beneath the moonlight

你发如雪 纷飞了眼泪
ni fa ru xue / fen fei le yan lei
Your hair is like snow, your tears are flying

我等待苍老了谁
wo deng dai cang lao le shui
Who had waned while I waited?

红尘醉 微醺的岁月

In the era of mortal intoxication

我用无悔 刻永世爱你的碑

I’ll use my devotion to carve a tablet of love for you

Your hair is like snow, making our parting chillingly beautiful

我焚香感动了谁

Inviting the full moon to highlight my memories

爱在月光下完美
ai zai yue guang xia wan mei
Love becomes pure beneath the moonlight

你发如雪 纷飞了眼泪
ni fa ru xue / fen fei le yan lei
Your hair is like snow, your tears are flying

我等待苍老了谁

Who had waned while I waited?

hong chen zui / wei xun de sui yue
In the era of mortal intoxication

我用无悔 刻永世爱你的碑

I’ll use my devotion to carve a tablet of love for you

啦儿啦 ~

La er la~

铜镜映无邪 扎马尾
tong jing ying wu xie / zha mai wei
The bronzed mirror reflects a picture of innocence and pigtails

你若撒野 今生我把酒奉陪
ni ruo sa ye / jin sheng wo ba jiu feng pei
Since you (coyly) requested, I’ll keep you company and drink with you in this life

DIA Diagram Drawing Tools

src :

- [old] : http://projects.gnome.org/dia/

- [new] : http://live.gnome.org/Dia

logo

Dia is a gtk+ based diagram creation program released under the GPL license.

Dia is inspired by the commercial Windows program ‘Visio‘, though more geared towards informal diagrams for casual use. It can be used to draw many different kinds of diagrams. It currently has special objects to help draw entity relationship diagrams, UML diagrams, flowcharts, network diagrams, and many other diagrams. It is also possible to add support for new shapes by writing simple XML files, using a subset of SVG to draw the shape.

It can load and save diagrams to a custom XML format (gzipped by default, to save space), can export diagrams to a number of formats, including EPS, SVG, XFIG, WMF and PNG, and can print diagrams (including ones that span multiple pages).

DIA

- windows : http://sourceforge.net/projects/dia-installer/files/dia-win32-installer/0.97/dia-setup-0.97.exe/download

- linux ubuntu : http://sourceforge.net/projects/dia-installer/files/dia/0%2C97/dia_0.97-1_i386.deb/download

——————————————————————

I have already test out this program. Yes, it works well and sound like visio. BUT (I give you a big but there), I don’t found it as a great diagram drawing tools (it is good, not great). I can’t easily adjusting the property of an elemen (same problem I found with visio). Thus, making the process slower.

For quicker drawing tools, I prefer starUML. However, It is buggy. You must be patient when using it.

For a nice and free diagram drawing tools, I choose DIA.

For a nice and expensive diagram drawing tools, I found Ms. Visio.

For a quick and free diagram drawing tools, I prefer starUML.

For a great diagram drawing tools, try using entreprise architect, I found it is easy for use. It’s expensive though….

[Funny] Way to Heaven

How to get to Heaven

StairwayToHeaven1

I was testing children in my Sunday school class to see if they understood the concept of getting to heaven..

I asked them, “If I sold my house and my car, had a big jumble sale and gave all my money to the church, would that get me into heaven?”

“NO!” the children answered.

“If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the garden, and kept everything tidy, would that get me into heaven?”

Again, the answer was ‘No!’ By now I was starting to smile.

“Well, then, if I was kind to animals and gave sweeties to all the children, and loved my husband, would that get me into heaven?”

Again, they all answered ‘No!’. I was just bursting with pride for them.

I continued, “Then how can I get into heaven?”

A six year old boy shouted, “Yuv gotta be fooken dead!”

D’ Cost Bandung

Berhubung saya adalah pecinta ikan (kecuali jenis lele), tempat makan ini menjadi tempat makan favorit saya. Rasanya kalau sudah disini sudah tidak ada lagi namanya nahan nafsu buat makan.. T_T *kenapa saya lemah sekali sama yang namanya ikan ya…*

Rumah Makan D’ Cost di Bandung hadir di Jalan Setiabudhi. Slogan yang dimiliki rumah makan ini, “Harga Kaki Lima, Mutu Bintang Lima” membuatnya menjadi sebuah tempat makan keluarga yang cukup banyak peminatnya. Selain harganya yang murah, mutu makanannya benar – benar tidak kalah dari restoran kelas atas dengan harga yang jauh lebih mahal!

Ada 2 jenis menu favoritku disini, yaitu “Gurame Bakar” dan “Gurame Asam Manis”. Sebagai Catatan “Gurame Asam Manis” hanya kutemukan di Bandung, di cabang D’ Cost di kota lain rasanya tidak ada (tapi saya tidak tahu menahu kalau tiba – tiba jadi ada).

berbeda dengan rumah makan lain yang harga sayurnya biasanya “selangit” a.k.a mahal, bukan sayurnya ada di langit – langit…. sayur di rumah makan ini terbilang cukup murah dan tentu saja cukup “enak”. Sayur kesukaan saya di rumah makan ini adalah “baby kailan cah bawang putih” dan “tumis kangkung”.

Selain itu, buat Anda yang tidak bisa kenyang kalau tidak makan nasi, nasi di restoran ini juga cukup murah, hanya Rp 1.000,00 untuk sepuas Anda (selama persediaan masih ada, tapi makan nasi sebanyak apa sih sampai nasi satu rumah makan bisa habis?)

selain harga makanan yang terbilang cukup murah.. harga minumannya juga jauh berbeda dibandingkan dengan rumah makan yang setingkat. Berhubung saya tidak terlalu menyukai minuman manis, maka es teh tawar di rumah makan ini menjadi pilihan favorit saya. Hanya dengan harga Rp 250,00 es teh tawar tersebut sudah dapat dinikmati sepuasnya.

Untuk yang menyukai minuman manis, sebagai pembanding saja harga es lemon tea di rumah makan ini adalah Rp 4.800,00/gelas dan es teh manis Rp 500,00 / gelas.

Sayang saya lupa memoto minumannya =.=

*update*
dapat menu dkost :D
