如燕 by Olivia Ong

I like this song, I like Olivia to begin with and I think the beginning of the song has a very Peranakan feel to it. And the rest of the song transports me back in time with its soothing melody. It took me two episodes of Little Nyonya to realise that the song was sung by Olivia, I did not believe it when I saw the closing credits during the first episode! But a v nice song nonetheless, with v poignant lyrics. After watching the show, I feel more immersed in a part of my own culture which I've not had the chance to get in touch with, besides my maternal grandmother's cooking and looking at her in her kebayas in pics as a young girl.

All of a sudden, I feel like bringing my grandmother back to Malacca for a long overdue trip back to her hometown!



《如燕》
词曲:陈佳明
编曲:Terence Teo
制作人:陈佳明
演唱:Olivia Ong

愿意合上眼才能美梦无边
别让悔熏乌了从前

也许碎片才能让回忆展颜
何妨瓷花拼凑明天

谁带我寻获幸福的模
却自己谜中困锁

谁为我留下缱绻的天涯
信物是抹晚霞

Chorus:
思念如燕它飞舞舌尖
若是真爱配尝几分苦甜

意念婆娑时间里推磨
追随到何处才结果

燕如针线在青空缝编
几幅女红将以泪缀点

誓言斑驳情雾只是经过
风雨中且让我盈步婀娜
