Ooo..la..la....la Shake!!!

Mama attended a formal dinner party cum book launch cum roadshow launch last night. She came back with a wwwiiiidddeee grin on her face. Hmmm.....apparently she got to see her favourite singer LIVE!!!! Who is he? Watch this.

video

He made a surprise appearance at the event and sang crooned three songs.... all Mama's favourites, especially this French number. Now, sing along with us....

Lyrics: Tu Sais Je T'aime

Tu viens vers moi quand tout va mal
Et je suis toujours là
You know I love you
chœur : tu sais je t'aime

Tu pleures un peu et tu me parles
Mais tu ne me vois pas
You know I love you
chœur : tu sais je t'aime

Je suis l'ami le bon copain
Celui qui comprends tout
You know I love you
chœur : tu sais je t'aime

Mais souvent j'ai serré les poings
Aujourd'hui je l'avoue
You know I love you

Mon amour a commencé
Un dimanche après-midi
C'est comme on dit en français
Le coup de foudre

C'était dans un pub anglais
Et j'en suis encore surpris
Toi tu t'amusais, moi j'attendais

Chœur:
Tu viens vers moi quand tout va mal
Et je suis toujours là
Tu sais je t'aime
You know I love you

Tu pleures un peu et tu me parles
Mais tu ne me vois pas
Tu sais je t'aime
You know I love you

Tu me souris tu as compris
Tu me regardes enfin
You know I love you
chœur : Tu sais je t'aime

C'est le plus beau jour de ma vie
Tu m'embrasses et tu dis
Tu sais je t'aime

Notre amour a commencé
Un dimanche après-midi
C'est comme on dit en français
Le coup de foudre

C'était dans un train anglais
Et j'en suis encore surpris
Toi tu t'amusais, moi j'attendais

You know I love you

C'est le plus beau jour de ma vie
Tu m'embrasses et tu dis
Tu sais je t'aime.....

And this is Mama's amateurish video effort last night. Back to school, Mama. The quality is disgusting but the audio is not too bad.

And some photos....she is indeed a pawpawrazzi.

In full glory....he looks good for his age....
Spine tingling moment, Mama said...
Angelina's note: Nope, there is no photo of her and him....Dad was around too, you see.... purrr....meow!

It might not be but it sounded Greek to me! It would possibly sound different from a lady singer. But you enjoyed it and that matters. I have one CD but he sounds all Malay to me.

Très bon. Les années ont été très bon pour lui.

Pls tell you mama that he was my ex *haha, perasan*. We came from the same kampong *proud gitu*.

I cant afford to pay RM500 just to see my ex.

Your mama must've been thrilled to bits to find an old 'flame'! I know I would've been :)

His voice in mama's-own'video still sounds like it was in the days when I used to listen to him. Nice.
