ASL Song - 不是一字一字翻译

这位演绎者的演绎方式大致上还不错,但是犯了一个大毛病,把每一个字都翻译过来了,如果观众没有听过这首歌,肯定会看得一头雾水,在歌曲结尾部分“Without you in my life baby”,他竟然比婴儿(baby)的手语,那是大错特错的,这里的baby是指爱人的意思,那么一小错误,把整首歌的含义都扭曲了。



"This I Promise You" lyrics

Ohh ohh...

When the visions around you,
Bring tears to your eyes
And all that surround you,
Are secrets and lies
I'll be your strength,
I'll give you hope,
Keeping your faith when it's gone
The one you should call,
Was standing here all along..

And I will take
You in my arms
And hold you right where you belong
Till the day my life is through
This I promise you
This I promise you

I've loved you forever,
In lifetimes before
And I promise you never...
Will you hurt anymore
I give you my word
I give you my heart (give you my heart)
This is a battle we've won
And with this vow,
Forever has now begun...

Just close your eyes (close your eyes)
Each loving day (each loving day)
I know this feeling won't go away (no..)
Till the day my life is through
This I promise you..
This I promise you..

Over and over I fall (over and over I fall)
When I hear you call
Without you in my life baby
I just wouldn't be living at all...

And I will take (I will take you in my arms)
You in my arms
And hold you right where you belong (right where you belong)
Till the day my life is through
This I promise you baby

Just close your eyes
Each loving day (each loving day)
I know this feeling won't go away (no..)
Every word I say is true
This I promise you

Every word I say is true
This I promise you
Ooh, I promise you...

ASL Song - 近乎完美的演绎

这是一首由手语演绎的歌曲,前奏肢体摇摆表示音乐在播放,在演绎stand on mountains,她先比mountains的手势再stand on it,这是对的手语,如果她先比stand再比mountains的手势,那就错了。



You Raise Me Up lyrics

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

You raise me up... To more than I can be.

SIM卡大扫除


有时候我懒惰把新的号码存进SIM卡,一来费时,二来浪费空间。尽管手机的记忆可以存2500个通讯录,而目前的用量少过10%,照理来说没有必要house-keeping,昨晚看了几页《吸引力的法则》,提到世界上最大的力量莫过于爱的力量,从而有感地拿起手机看看里面的通讯录。每跳过一个,就会尝试回忆这个人到底是谁?有什么特征?有些号码依然保留,尽管已经很久没有联系了,但有些还是砍了,因为我真的记不起曾经要过通讯录。

一年后的相遇

我从来没有后悔当初学习手语的原因,反而觉得那是际遇,因为这座沟通的桥梁贯通了两个完全不一样的世界,也因此我看到了他们的奋斗,他们的精神。

一年后的相遇,我遇见了我的启蒙老师侯清姿,她的sign name是两个C,她也是我接触最多的聋人,第一天上课的情况犹如昨晚才发生。一年后,她的长发剪短了,而且烫卷了,我差点就认不出她,剪了短发,她看起来更活泼可爱。活泼因为她比手语的时候很生动,可爱因为她其实比我年轻,哈哈哈。

由于时间紧迫,我缺席了当天的活动,27/09/09是世界聋人日,International Deaf Day简称IDD,是一项在全世界同步举行的活动。我没有进到会场,只是在柜台处把东西交给清姿,在短短的10分钟交流,体验到她对此活动的喜悦,她对于现状工作的热诚,还有她那一贯的乐天,虽然她没有笑声,但是她的笑容是最灿烂,最无邪。

I never regret the motive that moved me to learn Sign Language. That's is rather an opportunity that I had experienced. Sign language a communication bridge links both hearing and deaf. And passed through this communication barrier, I saw their effort and dedication to their life.

A year past, I met her again. She is my sign language teacher, How Ching Cher. Her sign name is CC. She used to be the person that signed most to me. I remember the situation during first class as if it was just happened yesterday. After 1 year, she cut her long straight hair to short curly hair. I almost couldn't recognize her. She looks so pretty and even look cuter from previous.

Due to tight schedule, I absent myself to International Deaf Day (IDD). IDD is a global event held synchronously in different locations. I just approached to lobby of YMCA and passed her a gift. We had a short interactive session about 10 minutes, however I could feel her excitement of attending this event. She told me about her job and she holds her ethic firmly. She is always optimistic. Although her laugh is silent, but her smile showed the great brightness and happiness which I have ever seen.

一些相似易淆的手语

奇怪与可爱
。Funny/Weird - The index and middle fingers of the right 'U' hand, whose palm faces the body, are placed on the nose. The right hand swings down in an arc, and palm down, the 'U' fingers strike their left counterparts on the downturned left 'U' hand, and either stop at that point or continue on.
。Cute - The fingertips of the right 'U' hand, palm facing the body, brush against the chin a number of times, beginning at the lips.

新、干净、纸张
。New - With both hands held palm up before the body, the right hand sweeps in an arc into the left, and continues up a bit.
。Clean - The right hand slowly wipes the upturned left hand, from wrist to fingertips.
。Paper - Strike the heel of the left upturned palm two glancing blows with the heel of the right down turned palm.

之前、容易、之后、靠近
。Before - The left hand is held before the body, fingers together and pointing to the right. The right hand, fingers also together, and pointing to the left, is placed so that its back rests in the left palm. The right hand moves rather quickly towards the body. The sign is used as an indication of time or of precedence.
。Easy - The right fingertips brush repeatedly over their upturned left counterparts, causing them to move.
。After - The right hand, held flat, palm facing the body, fingertips facing left, represents the fixed place in time. The left hand is placed against the back of the right, and moved straight out from the body. The relative positions of the two hands may be reversed, with the left remaining stationary near the body and the right moving out.
。Near - The let hand, cupped, fingers together, is held before the chest, palm facing the body. The right hand, also cupped, fingers together, moves a very short distance back and forth, as it is held in front of the left.

等、停
。Wait - The upturned '5' hands are held with the right behind the left. The fingers of both hands wiggle.
。Stop - Bring the little-finger side of the right flat hand down sharply at right angles on the left palm.

漫长假期后遗症

4天假期在欢笑、谈天、吃喝、聚会中溜走了,恍神又是工作天,对于我有很高层度的resist to change或者喜欢stick to current stat来说,重拾工作的心情似乎变得慢条斯理,有气无力。工作归工作,始终还是要做,4天pending的工作还不少,x档案一宗,那些人总是把问题向这里推,有的没的,没完没了。漫长假期后遗症的症状有点像T.G.I.F.但是心情是热不起来的,毕竟那是illusion。头脑不清醒,哎呀,我到底是怎么了,做了好几个噩梦,吓醒又谜迷糊糊睡了,那在书桌上该死的闹钟在6.45am响了,可我昨晚明明就放在地上,而且我确定是放在地上……
