Stevie Wonder – Someday At Christmas

Merry Christmas……

Someday at Christmas man will not fail
Hate will be gone and love will prevail
Someday a new world that we can start
With hope in every heart

Stevie Wonder – Someday At Christmas

Someday at Christmas men won’t be boys
Playing with bombs like kids play with toys
One warm December our hearts will see
A world where men are free

Someday at Christmas there’ll be no wars
When we have learned what Christmas is for
When we have found what life’s really worth
There’ll be peace on earth

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime

Someday at Christmas we’ll see a land
With no hungry children, no empty hand
One happy morning people will share
Our world where people care

Someday at Christmas there’ll be no tears
All men are equal and no men have fears
One shining moment, one prayer away
From our world today

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime

Someday at Christmas man will not fail
Hate will be gone and love will prevail
Someday a new world that we can start
With hope in every heart

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime
Someday at Christmastime

圣诞结

陈奕迅 -圣诞结

我住的城巿从不下雪 记忆却堆满冷的感觉
思念的旺季 霓虹掃过喧哗的街 把快乐赶得好远
落单的恋人最怕过节 只能独自庆祝儘量喝醉
我爱过的人 没有一个留在身边 寂寞它陪我过夜

Merry Merry Christmas Lonely Lonely Christmas
想祝福不知该给谁 爱被我们打了死结
Lonely Lonely Christmas Merry Merry Christmas
写了卡片能寄给谁 心碎的像街上的纸屑

电话不接 不要被人 发现我整夜都关在房间
狂欢的笑声 听来像哀悼的音乐
眼眶的泪 温热冻结 望著电視里的无聊节目
癱在沙发上 变成没知觉的植物

Merry Merry Christmas Lonely Lonely Christmas
想祝福不知该给谁 爱被我们打了死结
Lonely Lonely Christmas Merry Merry Christmas
写了卡片能寄给谁 心碎的像街上的纸屑

谁来陪我过圣诞节

The total cost of “Twelve Days of Christmas”

Every year, for the past 27 years, PNC Wealth Management measure the cost of Christmas by calculating the total cost of all the things in the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas”. It’s actually quite interesting to see the price of each item in the list and their changes over the years. But this is not just for fun. The PNC Christmas Price Index can also reflect inflation and supply/demand, just like Consumer Price Index.

This year, the total cost of “Twelve Days of Christmas” is $23,439. That’s $1,974 more than last year.

So, anyone giving their true love all the items in the “Twelve Days of Christmas” song? Haha.

To find out more, head down to PNC Christmas Price Index website.

First Look: WD TV Live Hub Media Center

Western Digital recently launched the WD TV Live Hub Media Center in Singapore. The WD TV Live Hub is an update to their WD TV HD Media Player which was launched in early 2009. The WD TV Live Hub is a full HD 1080p media player that gives users the freedom to play all their personal media on any screen in the home. I guess most people will plug it to the large screen TV in the living room and enjoy it from the comfort of their sofa.

The WD TV Live Hub Media Center supports most video and audio formats like AVI (Xvid, AVC, MPEG1/2/4), MPG/ MPEG, VOB, MKV (H.264, x.264, AVC, MPEG1/2/4, VC-1), TS/TP/M2T (MPEG1/2/4, AVC, VC-1), MP4/MOV (MPEG4, h.264), M2TS, WMV9, MP3, WAV/PCM/LPCM, WMA/WMA Pro, AAC, FLAC, MKA, AIF/AIFF, OGG, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS. Hmmm…. did we miss out any major format? I guess not. Pretty much all the major formats are there.

It has a Gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0 (input), HDMI (output), Composite A/V (output), Component video (output) and Optical audio (output). It’s a pity that there is no WIFI. But good thing is that the WD TV Live Hub is WIFI ready. All you need is an adapter.

Users can use the WD TV Live Hub to access YouTube, Flickr, Pandora, AccuWeather, etc etc. The interface is fairly simple and straight forward. Pretty good for remote control. The WD TV Live Hub media center also has Facebook integration. Oh my, nowadays almost every device have Facebook integration. The WD TV Live Hub media center allows users to upload photo, videos, update status, view their wall and get the latest news feed from their friends. All these from the TV that the WD TV Live Hub media centre is connected to. Pretty good for surfing Facebook on Sofa. Just make sure nobody else is watching the same TV screen.

The WD TV Live Hub media center is currently available in 1TB storage capacity and retails at S$319.99.
