    speechless…i’m totally speechless at how incredible our show was last night at hitec…there are only two reasons why the show was so good for us because as most of you will know and as most bands have already been saying, the sound last night was not ideal…but the reasons why last night’s show was amazing:

    1. You the audience…once we got on stage, we could already feel the fire in your hearts…we knew you just wanted to go nuts and were ready for us…it was incredible to have that feeling while i was on stage…i am lying to you, i could FEEL your fire…it got me so pumped up and ready to rock that stage and rock hitec no matter what the sound situation was…

    2. Was our friends…especially our brothers in Shepherds the Weak, Ryan Hui and Soler…all those guys were so excited to see us. That feeling is beyond any description, the feeling where your friends are excited for you to get on stage and kill it…having our brothers in Shepherds the Weak come out on stage was on the best things to happen…not just one guy from STW, but the whole band! that’s friendship…we can only hope and pray that you are lucky enough to have friends like STW…but that type of friendship is hard to find in Hong Kong. Friendship that is based on trust and HONESTY…not talking behind someone’s back, isolating a person, or pretending that this whole “scene” is your frickin’ high school. We are not children, and we don’t need to be friends with children. if we do something wrong we expect our friends to tell us to our FACE so that we can change and make positive changes within ourselves. that’s friendship…that’s what our song My Family is about…

    thank you everyone for last night…it was a spectacular way to end this incredible year for us…we want to thank all of those people who came from Guangzhou to see this show!!! YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING!!! the passion and heart you guys brought to the show last night for us was great!!! just what the show needed!!!

    OKAY – so the news for 2008:

    1. We will launch a new E-card for the EP on January 1st
    2. On Jan 30 we will launch the free EP for all of you to download, spread around the world, burn on to CD, whatever the hell you want to do with it!

    watch out for all of this…

    today i’m flying to Laos and i won’t be back until Jan 6th…have a great new year everyone and thanks for all your support!!!

    關於昨天晚上的演出我真的說不出來了…你們對我們的熱情是非常非常難以相信!!! :-) 我覺得昨天晚上只有兩個原因:

    1. 觀眾…你們的熱情…我們一上台感覺到你們心裡的火…我不會形容這個感覺…可是我們一上台就知道你們跟我們一樣就想go crazy!!! 感覺到你們這個火就給我更加多力量…真的謝謝你們…謝謝你們的支持…謝謝你們的時間因為昨天晚上聽到很多跟我們一起來唱我們幾首比較新的歌”亞洲起義” 和 “My Family”…所以我知道你們用了自己的時間學我們的歌詞和音樂…還有一定想謝謝所有從廣州來的支持者!!!! 你們做到昨天晚上的演出更加好玩, 更加好看!!! 非常感激你們!!!

    2. 我們的朋友…特別是這幾個朋友們: Shepherds the Weak, Soler 和 Ryan Hui…他們一看到我就跟我說他們很興奮再有機會看我們的表演…這樣的支持和鼓勵是非常重要的支持…特別最難忘是我們請STW全隊出來跟我們一起唱My Family…在香港我們很幸運有這樣的朋友…是真的朋友…有信任有可以說真話. 如果我們做了一個我們不應該做的事情他們不會放棄我們, 他們一定不會暗箭傷人…就是他們給我們一個很大的希望…我們很珍惜他們…

    WOW – 這樣玩完二零零七年是好像你們給了一個很美的禮物! 謝謝你們全年的支持…明年我們會開始荔枝王的第九年了!!!


    1. 大概一月一日我們會發一個宣傳的東西叫”e-card”. 在這個e-card你可以聽到我們新EP的幾首歌.
    2. 一月三十號我們會發我們的EP!!!! 我們等了很久…可是那天很快就到了…這個EP是完全免費的也是就在一個網站才可以下載…


    二零零七年有說謝謝!!!! 很期待在二零零八見到你們!!!!

    woah not often does so many holidays fall into the same period! besides christmas, of course, hanukah also falls on this same period as the main Jewish holiday, and then for Muslims one of the biggest celebrations called Eid also fell during this ssame period a few days ago!

    so technically we should all be saying:

    merry christmas
    happy hanukah
    Eid mubarak
    and happy holidays for the non-religious folk!

    these past few days have been a lot of fun for me hanging out at various christmas parties, and eating way TOO much food!!! holy hell…i feel like a bag of crap right now because of all the food that i’ve consumed these past few days…

    time for band practice tonight…we have a show on saturday but none of us know anything about the show…we don’t know if we’re the first band to play (the show starts at 4) or somewhere in the middle…we also don’t know how much time we have and how many songs we can play… should be a good time though! can’t wait to watch soler and Chui Ball Tong! …chui ball tong is from guangzhou and they’re an amazing rock band…our friends in Chisel My Records are going to release their newest album in hong kong in march of 2008!

    okay..the message above i typed before i had band practice…its 4am now and i just got home from band practice, then recording backing vocals for the english version of Refuse, then jamming with STW on the song behind these walls that i’ll be singing for on saturday…

    i got to walk home from the tunnel in humg hom all the way back to my house in tst…i love this walk especially late at night when its just me, my ipod and my annoying depressing thoughts that i usually get at 3am about life, and where i am in my life…i always get like this when i’m half awake and really tired…all i want to do is go to sleep…but i put on some American Football or The Appleseed Cast in my ipod and out come my horrible negative thoughts about life. that’s the one thing i hate about “emo” and when i say emo i don’t mean my chemical romance crap – i mean stuff like american football, mineral, the appleseed cast, stuff like that…music that gets me thinking right away, but its always sad thoughts…annoying if you ask me…but i think everyone needs this type of music…music that will question your life and your decisions…you never know what’s in store for you tomorrow. you just hope and pray that it’s a good day…in KLC we’ve been taking everything day by day and it really helps. it helps because then when we’re met with non-stop disappointments, we can handle the letdowns so much better. but that’s life – no one owes us anything…we’re here making our own history and making our own tomorrow. you’re either with us or not…those who are not can’t be any more obvious…but that’s just how life goes.

    i have no idea what i’m typing…i really should just go to sleep before i type something that i really don’t mean and that will of course be taken the wrong way! hahahaha… :-)

    hey watched I am Legend a few days ago..VERY impressed with this movie…i was sitting on the edge of my seat the whole time!!! i recommend people watch this in the movie theater…it’s just not the same to watch a movie like this on your tiny little TV. unless some of you own like 60″ plasma TV’s. in which case, how come you haven’t invited us over! Gee! some people! hahahaha…

    our very own guitar hero brian had a a very nice surprise happen to him yesterday…

    his girlfriend lives in Australiza so they’ve been keeping up a long distance relationship…yesterday his girlfriend asked him to go to the airport to pick up a friend of ours. so brian, being the nice guy that he is – went all the way out ot the airport to pick up her friend. while he was waiting at the gate, guess who the “friend” actually was? yup – it was his girlfriend. :-)   a VERY nice surprise for him! i’m taking notes!

    okay – gotta go to is the last day of school before we go off for christmas break. a few of the children are leaving Hong Kong over the break. so this break is always bittersweet. we’re happy to finally have a break, but also sad because some of the se wonderful children that we’ve gotten so close to, we’ll never see again because they’re moving…  :-(

    like always – you just pray that you have done your job right and that these children grow up to be successful in whatever their heart desires…

    Start From Scratch Records’ next show is February 23 and we’ve invited Piledriver from the Philippines!!! Great Madball style hardcore for you all!!!.

    in the bandroom with G and bring recording english versions of Skinless…can’t wait until all of you hear the english versions of our EP!!! sounds so good…of course i think it’s great because i wrote the english lyrics! hahahaha…

    wait until you see the lyrics of “skinless”…awesome lyrics…i feel like its 30 years of frustration being a minority in HK and finally i can get it off of my chest…its got anger, its got my frustration, its got my positivity…any minority in HK i think will feel power and a sense of ownership with these lyrics having lived and felt the same things that i have felt growing up here…maybe i’ll cheat a little bit and post the complete lyrics up here in the next few days…

    can’t wait until this 6 song EP is finally ready for you all!!! aaaaahhhh we’ve waited so long!!! urgggggghhh…
    現在我在我們的band房跟G和brian一起錄我們六首歌的英文版…應該是一月份終於可以給大家機會免費下載中文版本和英文版本!!! 然後我們好像一月中會上去北京演機場演出!!! 可是還沒confirm…希望這幾天可以給你們一個好的稍息!!!!

    可是我就想說…因為英文歌詞是我寫的所以我覺得我終於可以發出來我所有的感覺…比如說, skinless (中文歌名是 “無皮”)的歌詞對我來說是最理想的…感覺是我等了三十年才有機會說我所想說的東西…應該是其他香港的小數民族一看這首歌的英文詞(因為很多香港的小數民族應該是跟我一樣不太會看中文)會有點兒共鳴…他們跟我一樣經了很多不好的情況…可能每天還要經….

    很期待那一天終於可以給大家免費下載這六首歌 (兩版).

    dude…a 14 year old girl in HK gave birth to a baby and then through the baby out of her window. oh my god…oh my god…the newspaper said that the baby was born dead. and they think that the 14 year old girl was already freaked out that she was pregnant at such a young age, and then when she gave birth to the baby (in her home it said)  and because the baby was born dead (stillborn) she freaked out and threw the baby out the window.

    oh my god.
