CeeJay's Pick of the Month (December): 最後也分開 -譚嘉儀

Image
Hello! Hope everyone has been enjoying their last days of 2016! For our last post of the year we are introducing this new song from Kayee Tam from her debut album! 


We actually had difficulty finding a pick of the month because there weren't a lot of new songs this month that caught our eye (or ears ;) ). It wasn't until we saw this a couple days ago that we decided to go with this song. This is our pick of the month because we thought For now, the tune is not super catchy but with more listening, we are sure it will sink in. The song is actually written by Kayee herself and even the lyrics! Usually the artists compose their own music and even Linda Chung has done it but the lyrics are given to a lyricist to write it for them. We thought that this added to the sincerity of this song and overall, we have no major issues with the lyrics. We are however disappointed that this album only contains 5 songs and including this one, we have heard 4 of them. Of course we would rather hea…

Best Series: A Fist Within Four Walls
Image from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Fist_Within_Four_Walls 
Cee and Jay: This is an undeniably great series, but perhaps because of the other terrible dramas which made this one shine the most. We loved the action-packed scenes of fighting, the set of the walled city, and the refreshing story-line. That being said, some characters still lacked depth and we found the absence of an over…
