謝謝你, 就是你 by ZPGY

My group of friends and I (we call ourselves ZPGY aka 猪朋狗友) recently composed/ produced a song 謝謝你, 就是你, inspired by the recent Sichuan earthquake. We hope to spread it to China and even share with the rest of the world.

The ZPGYs comprise of local singers, musicians, and others. Some familiar faces you might spot include Tay Kewei, Chanel Pang, Ruth Chua, Dawn Wong, EinEin, etc. We all came together as one and piece this whole project with our efforts.

The song mixing and video filming/ editing may not be as professional, but it contains our blood and perspiration.

We’re in the midst of negotiating to have our song included in a compilation album.

Till then, I hope to share this self-filmed MV with you and pls do continue to spread our love to your friends and let it chain on!

Don't forget to rate/ leave comments after you view it!! :)))

Writer's Block

I'm not a writer (well, at least not professionally). But I sure have been suffering from Writer's Block, truly.

O K . . . K I T T Y . . . C U T T H E C R A P ! ! ! ! !



It's been 8.5mths since I joined my current company. And that's how long Keishi's been in London.

Keishi, hurry come back!!!


I travelled twice in the last 1.5mths.

Hong Kong --- April 24th - 28th
Travelled with family. To visit relatives. If you do not already know, yes, I have grand-uncle, uncles, aunties, cousins, etc. in HK.

The story went something like this...

Many donkey mule years ago, my grandma + siblings left China (our hometown was Fuzhou) in search of greener pastures. My grandma decided to settle in Singapore, whereas the others opted for HK.

Yes, that's how I ended up landing in Singapore. I could have carried a Hong Kong passport, lived in a country with 4 seasons (although no snow), and worn pretty winter clothes. My circle of friends could have had more cute guys!

There could have been many more "could have's"... but... oh well... that's life for ya....

Bangkok --- May 8th - 11th
Travelled with friends. 10 of them to be exact. Lemme share with you our manifest.

Initial group to travel consisted of 4 poly friends -----
Jordan + Arthur + Kendrik + Me

Then 2 more joined in -----
Jordan + Jordan's GF + Arthur + Arthur's Colleague + Kendrik + Me

Another 3 decided to tag along -----
Jordan + Jordan's GF + Arthur + Arthur's Colleague + Kendrik + Me + My Best Pal + My Best Pal's Hubby + My Best Pal's Hubby's Younger Brother

Before we could say "HUH?!", Traveller #10 booked his ticket -----
Jordan + Jordan's GF + Arthur + Arthur's Colleague + Kendrik + Me + My Best Pal + My Best Pal's Hubby + My Best Pal's Hubby's Younger Brother + Our Poly Pakistani Friend

Verdict --- Always keep to maximum 5 in a single travel group to avoid over-exhausting yourself.


ZPGY has been Sugie-less since March '08, eversince he received the Golden Ticket to Taipei to compete in 星光大道3. Who would expect that the first to be eliminated from 绝对Superstar 1 would make it this far in an even bigger scale singing contest!!


I have expected this day to come. From the first time I saw Sugie perform on TV in 2005, I knew there was something special him, but, sadly, his hidden appeal wasn't appreciated/ discovered by many then.

Sugie, you've made ZPGY proud, for making it into Top 9 in 星光3. You may be taking a break now. But you'll shine in the upcoming revival round. We root for you.

We miss Sugie.


Wejian's gone to Taipei too, for a month. Finally recording for his debut album has completed. Warner's arranged for him to take dance lessons from a very reputable Taiwanese celebrity dance instructor. Another SUPER reputable MV director will be taking care of his MVs! Whooosh!!!

Jian's becoming a real celebrity singer! Whooosh!!!

We love Jian. He's suchhhhhhhhhh an adorable boy. So genuine and real. He's a gem.


Chanel was deeply saddened by Sichuan Earthquake, which in turn, inspired her to write a song "谢谢你,就是你". Because ZPGY is made up of so many multi-talented talents, the song was very quickly passed on to Ein, Mark & Jinsei for arrangement.

Kewei hooked us with Stereo Image (Thanks Michael!) and before we knew it, over 20 ZPGY friends were walking into recording studio and singing Chanel's song!

I just listened to the first mix. Though still raw, it's incredible!!!
