Money Not Enough 2 Movie Poster

If you have watched Money Not Enough 2, heed my advice: Bring more tissue papers… Be it the laughters or the tears, just bring more ok?

Although the movie plot is kinda exaggerating, the values behind it is worth pondering. It’s funny, but more realistic compared to the first episode. At least it’s not a movie which you just “Hahaha” in the cinema and walk out from it with not much inputs.

This song is sung by Hokkien Diva Jiang Hui “江蕙”, named 家后 or “Dearest Kin” by translation. My advice to you, read and understand the lyrics before listening to the original song:

When we are old with no one else beside us,
We will sit on the couch and listen to your adventurous stories when you were young,
It doesn’t matter on what we eat and I won’t complain,
I will hold your hands tightly,
because I am your dearest kin.

Chorus

I married you at my prime and followed you since then,
Seen through lots of things,
Who else can be more important than you?
I dedicate my whole life to you,
and realize that happiness is leading a cat and dog life.
When our time is up,
I’ll let you go ahead of me because…
I can’t bear to see you cry for me.

When we are old with sons and their wives,
Let’s recall how handsome you were while looking at our wedding photo if you are bored,
It doesn’t matter on what we wear and I won’t complain,
I will always put you in my heart,
because I am your dearest kin.

And finally, the piano sheet:

This piano sheet is designed at its original key, i.e: C Major. This is the first music score with plenty of ornaments. If you know Hokkien songs, ornaments really plays important role when a verse is spread through multiple notes!

Erm? What else? Chords and lyrics are included as well…
