Beachy weekend!

Woke up yesterday morning to a cutesy video clip of freshly hatched baby hawksbills heading out to sea. So lovely watching them scramble through the soft fine sand, really heartwarming to know that wildlife can co-exist with the urbanisation if/when we put our focus to it.

Another message from someone else was again about beach! And so’s today’s RDP. Hmm. Maybe Universe really reminding me to get a beach holiday? 😀

Twenty years ago, there was a movie called Summer Holiday, which was filmed in Malaysia, on an offshore island called Redang. The filming and the scene was sooooo beautiful – clear blue skies, bright sun, fine sand, and crystal clear waters – that a group of us took a summer holiday there! It was a long coach ride, followed by a long wait, followed by a long boat ride, but it was all well worth it. I remember the boat anchoring as near as it could to the beach, and then we had to jump into the water (with our bags!) and then waddle through the water to get onto land. It was such a beautiful experience, jumping into crystal clear waters and having the promfrets swim around us as we walk up the beach.

This video clip is the first of the series of 3 documentaries of Richie Ren revisiting Redang – physically travelling there again, with virtual snippets from the movie scenes of twenty years ago. There are alot of underwater scenes where they plant corals and swim with schools of fish and turtles, especially in the second and third episodes.

The documentary is in Mandarin and in Chinese subtitles, so … probably not quite easy to watch. SO!!! Instead, here is a music video of the chirpy sunny beachy song that has been playing in my head this whole weekend. How time flew! The guy in the documentary above is the 20years older version of the exact same dude in the centre in the music video below!

And the usual …. English translation of lyrics here! 😀

浪花一朵朵

我要你陪著我
看著那海龜水中游
慢慢的爬在沙灘上
數著浪花一朵朵
你不要害怕
你不會寂寞
我會一直陪在你的左右
讓你樂悠悠
日子一天一天過
我們會慢慢長大
我不管你懂不懂我在唱什麼
我知道有一天
你一定會愛上我
因為我覺得我真的很不錯
時光匆匆匆匆流走
也也也不回頭
美女變成老太婆
哎喲 那那那那個時候
我我我我也也已經是個糟老頭
啦啦~ 我們一起手牽手
啦啦~ 數著浪花一朵朵
