一首唱进我心里的歌@ 【只知感觉失了踪】

这首【只知感觉失了踪】是我在台湾取景拍摄的,
对我来说每一首歌背后都有着不同的意义,
我有情感也会失落也会有感觉,
有些时候总有那么一刻视乎会觉得自己感觉失了踪,
偶尔会想一个人太孤独了怎么办?
所以我对自己说生活绝对不能失去热情,
不然连爱的感觉也会随风而去,
我身边有太多爱我的家人与朋友,
所以我常常觉得自己真的很幸福~

接下来我要感谢我的赞助商Turbot Live Seafood Restaurant,
真心的感激他的支持及赞助,让我有机会在台湾拍摄这部MV...感恩~

生命中最想唱给家人的一首歌 【我的快乐时代】

这首MV是我在香港度假时拍摄的,当剪接师交给我看时,
心中突然涌出百感交集,
那是因为这几年我忙于拍摄及受邀出席一些大大小小的活动,
无论是台前还是幕后我都参与其中,
想说的事,工作已经占据了我的生活时间,
也因为这样, 也没能抽出太多时间陪伴在家人的身边...
就这样错过了许多与家人相处的时刻,
于是, 我决定给自己放个假, 充电充电

爱是个未知数的集合,这首【我的快乐时代】~
我想对我的家人说, 谢谢你们的陪伴与支持,
也很感恩这次有机会与我的家人拍摄这支MV,
对我的意义是非常大~

现实生活中我们往往总会羞涩于用表达来体现对家人的爱...
我希望透过这首歌我的家人可以感受到我的爱与付出

希望大家会喜欢及感同身受~          

另外我要感谢赞助商Turbot Live Seafood Restaurant,
真心的感激他的支持及赞助,让我有机会在香港拍摄这部MV.

Zao Lek Lok Lok- Fried, Grilled, Boiled Skewered Buffet

‘Lok Lok’ is one of the most popular street food originated from Penang, Malaysia. It is actually a variety of skewered deep-fried food which consist of vegetable and meat and eaten with different types of gravy or soup. This unique culture has spread to Singapore since it is well-loved by many locals.

Nestled in Paya Lebar Kovan Community Centre, it has an outdoor buffet concept where you can dine at a breezy and comfortable environment without feeling too packed. Zao Lek Lok Lok will make you spoilt for choices as there are over 80 type of skewers ranging from deep-fried, boiling and grilling as well as 6 selections of soup base to choose from. They have Tom Yum, Laksa, Bak Kut Teh, Chicken broth, Satay and last but not least Ma La flavor all boiled from scratch without adding artificial flavorings.



I was quite worried about the deep-fried items at first because they are usually too oily and coated with a thick layer of fried batter, but I am amazed that the fried food here are not as such! It is the total opposite of what I have expected. Each of the ingredient is fried to an extremely crispy texture with a thin outer coating and they will only fry upon order to keep it hot. For fried and boiled items are hand-picked by yourself, but for grilled items the service crew will recommend some of the popular ones to give you a little surprise, that is what I like about eating here.

When cooked with the scrumptious soup base, the ingredients gradually releases it’s flavors, blending together with the soup and enhancing the taste to be of natural sweetness. It is not necessary to add other condiments such as chilli or soy sauce into your soup.

The restaurant has a great concept and hygienic practice, all ingredients are kept in the refrigerator to make sure the quality is retained and customers can relish on fresh servings. Other than that, there are fruits and ice cream for dessert after a heavy meal. Now I do not need to travel to Malaysia just to eat ‘Lok Lok’, I can conveniently bring my foodie kakis here to satisfy our cravings anytime!

My first song ‘ACTUALLY’- Composed by Billy Koh (许环良)


Special thanks to Segar Village for sponsoring this MV, it was only made possible with your utmost support.

After months of hardwork, I can finally reveal the story of how this song ‘ACTUALLY’ came about on this 52nd Singapore National Day. This is a local song which conveys Singaporeans’ thoughts, a fun and catchy tune for the young and old to sing along together. Everything started when I had the opportunity to meet the renowned Asia top music producer Billy Koh (许环良) at an event. Billy Koh was a very friendly and down-to-earth person which we are able to hit off quite well. We were in the midst of chatting when he thought that my name Ashley rhymes with the word ‘Actually’, that is when he offered to write a song for me. I was extremely thrilled!

It has been 9 years ago since he had written a song for a Singaporean. He had groomed a handful of famous singers in the past like JJ Lin, Kit Chan and By2. It is such an honour to have a chance to work with the talented music producer.

Rewinding back to my first session of song recording with Billy Koh at Ocean Butterflies Music recording studio, everyone was feeling excited about how this song will turn out. The day’s experience was really enjoyable especially when surrounded with a group of music enthusiast. I get to learn a lot from them which makes the process more meaningful. The second song recording was at Taiwan, Billy Koh invited my team and I over to his frequent music studio in Taipei and we managed to finish the recording in half a day, I am very grateful and thankful to everyone who helped on that day.



We moved on to the filming of the MV with a group of amazing film production team, they are one of the best I have worked with. Additionally, thank you to the following people who supported this MV, you guys are great!

Coconut is added but not too overwhelming, it is packed with aromatic spices and flavors containing more than 20 type of ingredients.

Grandma Salted Egg Sotong
Not a fancy dish but taste incredibly delicious! Coated with thick salted egg sauce and stir-fried to a crunchy texture, the sotong are fresh cuts that are still chewy, giving a gratifying eating pleasure.

This cream sauce requires at least half an hour to prepare. The main ingredients used are butter and water mixed with various condiments. Tossed with red chilli padi adding a spicy kick, constant stir-frying is the key to getting the ideal texture of the sauce.
