奴隸船 Slave Ship - 蔡依林 Jolin Tsai

奴隸船 (Nu Li Chuan)

I love oldies, we all do. "Slave Ship" has a very smoothing melody that puts one at ease. Looking at her back in the Sony days, she really came a long way. Her latest ballad, "I" shows her fears and concerns she had after all these years. At the end of the day, without song and dance, will she be important to anyone?

Some people believed in the ideology that everyone is replaceable in this world. If Jolin doesn't come into your world, another idol will take up her place. I was considering that, but then I believed she's an angel that I'll be fated to meet even if I missed her by chance. If I didn't notice her in "Magic", I'll in "Castle" or "J-Game" or "Dancing Diva" or "Agent J" or "Myself" or "Muse". I'll pick up my pace to catch up with what I had missed.

When I first saw her, I was young. I didn't think twice and I liked her instantly. She looked like an angel to me, that would be my reason to why I like her. No complications, no explanations. Ever since then, my love for her has stopped at its own time, no matter how much she has grown, my love will still be there. She will always be the most important angel to me in my life.

Song: 奴隸船 Slave Ship
Album: 看我七十二變 Magic

海上 你溫柔的浪
Hai shang ni wen rou de lang
On the seas, your gentle waves

搖晃 我簡單的夢想
Yao huang wo jian dan de meng xiang
Swaying my simple dream

還以爲
Hai yi wei
And I thought

可以卸下武裝一起流浪
Ke yi xie xia wu zhuang yi qi liu lang
I can let down my guard to drift with you

你說謊
Ni shuo huang
You lied

船上 我孤單的帆
Chuan shang wo gu dan de fan
On the ship, my lonely sailcloth

前往 不確定的方向
Qian wang bu que ding de fang xiang
Heading towards an uncertain direction

還以爲
Hai yi wei
And I thought

從此海闊天空萬點星光
Cong ci hai kuo tian kong wan dian xing guang
From then on it will be an endless stretch of stars

你說謊
Ni shuo huang
You lied

失望 你轉眼變了模樣
Shi wang ni zhuan yan bian le mu yang
Disappointment, you changed in the blink of an eye

信仰 實現得那麽荒唐
Xin yang shi xian de na me huang tang
Faith was carry through so ridiculously

愛情 斷送在你那掌舵的手上
Ai qing duan song zai ni na zhang duo de shou shang
Love was destroyed under your steering

該怎麽靠岸
Gai zen me kao an
How should we get to shore?

眼淚 是你承諾的海洋
Yan lei shi ni cheng nuo de hai yang
Tears are your promised ocean

勇敢 沒裝進我的行囊
Yong gan mei zhuang jin wo de xing nang
Courage was not placed in my luggage

愛情登上了你掌舵的奴隸船
Ai qing deng shang le ni zhang duo de nu li chuan
When love boards your slave ship

I’m your Slave

Always

海上 你溫柔的浪
Hai shang ni wen rou de lang
On the seas, your gentle waves

搖晃 我簡單的夢想
Yao huang wo jian dan de meng xiang
Swaying my simple dream

還以爲
Hai yi wei
And I thought

可以卸下武裝一起流浪
Ke yi xie xia wu zhuang yi qi liu lang
I can let down my guard to drift with you

你說謊
Ni shuo huang
You lied

失望 你轉眼變了模樣
Shi wang ni zhuan yan bian le mu yang
Disappointment, you changed in the blink of an eye

信仰 實現得那麽荒唐
Xin yang shi xian de na me huang tang
Faith was carry through so ridiculously

愛情 斷送在你那掌舵的手上
Ai qing duan song zai ni na zhang duo de shou shang
Love was destroyed under your steering

該怎麽靠岸
Gai zen me kao an
How should we get to shore?

眼淚 是你承諾的海洋
Yan lei shi ni cheng nuo de hai yang
Tears are your promised ocean

勇敢 沒裝進我的行囊
Yong gan mei zhuang jin wo de xing nang
Courage was not placed in my luggage

愛情登上了你掌舵的奴隸船
Ai qing deng shang le ni zhang duo de nu li chuan
When love boards your slave ship

I’m your Slave

Always

勇敢 沒裝進我的行囊
Yong gan mei zhuang jin wo de xing nang
Courage was not placed in my luggage

愛情登上了你掌舵的奴隸船
Ai qing deng shang le ni zhang duo de nu li chuan
When love boards your slave ship

I’m your Slave

Always

馬賽克 Mosaic - 蔡依林 Jolin Tsai

Jolin Tsai's "Mosaic", 4th MV by Jolin
She contributed largely to the MV idea, mainly the black and white theme and including paying for some of the fees too.

The lyrics is beautiful, I never regretted when I finished translating the song. Although I went on a crazy spree when I was stuck yet again on certain parts. Now I know why I felt like crying whenever I hear the song after carefully depicting the lyrics.

Jolin Jeneration will be subbing the song soon after! If you haven't know, we'll be working together for the whole album for as many MVs as Jolin releases. I hope "Fantasy" and "I" gets an MV too, especially "I".

Song: 馬賽克 Mosaic
Album: Muse

白的是直線的快樂
Bai de shi zhi xian de kuai le
White is a straight line happiness

黑的是想念的淚痕 他心疼
Hei de shi xiang nian de lei hen ta xin teng
Black is the tear stains of longing, his heart aches

黃的是最初的青澀
Huang de shi zui chu de qing se
Yellow is the initial youth

紅的是心頭的深刻 捨不得
Hong de shi xin tou de shen ke she bu de
Red is the depth of the heart, unwillingness

一種人一種獨特 他都不捨
Yi zhong ren yi zhong du te ta dou bu she
One person with one type of uniqueness, he’s not even willing

形形色色 粉墨蠢蠢欲動的眼神
Xing xing se se fen mo chun chun yu dong de yan shen
Every kind of things, make-up applied to cover this troublemaking expression

五光十色太迷人
Wu guang shi se tai mi ren
The brilliant colours are too mesmerising

倒一季的花色
Dao yi ji de hua se
Empty a season of designs

妝一身霓虹
Zhuang yi shen ni hong
Adorned in neon

還是輸給他新粉刷的住客
Hai shi shu gei ta xin fen shua de zhu ke
Still I lost to his newly painted tenant

自以爲是的春色
Zi yi wei shi de chun se
My self-opinionated spring

一轉身成了模糊不清馬賽克
Yi zhuan shen cheng le mo hu bu qing ma sai ke
Became an unclear mosaic the moment I turned around

眼角是驕傲的金色
Yan jiao shi jiao ao de jin se
The corner of the eyes is an arrogant gold colour

眉稍是神秘的紫色 誘惑人
Mei shao shi shen mi de zi se you huo ren
The tip of the brows is a mysterious purple, tempting people

指尖是熱情的彩色
Zhi jian shi re qing de cai se
Fingertips are multi-coloured with passion

紅唇是溫柔的粉色 好香的吻
Hong chun shi wen rou de fen se hao xiang de wen
Red lips are a gentle pink colour, what a sweet kiss

一種人一種獨特 他都不捨
Yi zhong ren yi zhong du te ta dou bu she
One person with one type of uniqueness, he’s not even willing

形形色色 又一次蠢蠢欲動的眼神
Xing xing se se you yi ci chun chun yu dong de yan shen
Every kind of things, once again this troublemaking expression

努力拼貼各種色
Nu li pin tie ge zhong se
Working hard to make a collage of different colours

染一頭的漸層 拼一臉繽紛
Ran yi tou de jian ceng pin yi lian bin fen
Dye a hairstyle with multiple layers, piece a face with diversity

剪貼自己成他偏愛的風格
Jian tie zi ji cheng ta pian ai de feng ge
Cut and paste myself in his most preferred style

鏡子裡的不對稱
Jing zi li de bu dui cheng
The unsymmetrical in the mirror

自卑的反射
Zi bei de fan she
Inferiorly reflects

馬賽克 他的胡扯
Ma sai ke ta de hu che
Mosaic his nonsense

清醒的咖啡燙舌
Qing xing de ka fei tang she
The sober coffee burns the tongue

彩繪的玫瑰褪色
Cai hui de mei gui tui se
The painted rose starts to fade

武裝的色塊掉了
Wu zhuang de se kuai diao le
The equipped colour blocks are dropping

努力拼貼各種色
Nu li pin tie ge zhong se
Working hard to make a collage of different colours

染一頭的漸層 拼一臉繽紛
Ran yi tou de jian ceng pin yi lian bin fen
Dye a hairstyle with multiple layers, piece a face with diversity

剪貼自己成他偏愛的風格
Jian tie zi ji cheng ta pian ai de feng ge
Cut and paste myself in his most preferred style

不對稱的舊房客
Bu dui cheng de jiu fang ke
The unsymmetrical old tenant

自卑的反射
Zi bei de fan she
Inferiorly reflects

馬賽克 他的胡扯
Ma sai ke ta de hu che
Mosaic his nonsense

只落下透明的淚
Zhi luo xia tou ming de lei
Only the transparent tears fall

滑過這一片
Hua guo zhe yi pian
Sliding through this piece

滑稽的五顔六色
Hua ji de wu yan liu se
Of amusing colours

MapleStory Nependeath's Honey

I recalled I was raving about how abnormally hard it is to hunt Nependeath's Honey some years back when I first did the quest to get my bone helm. In the end, I bought it from another player for around 4 million.

Years later on another account in another world... When I was casually hunting the Nependeath, it actually dropped not only ONE but TWO Nependeath's Honey for me! O.O


I was too shocked to react. Have they modified the drop rate or I was just plain lucky? I can't seem to find the drop rates for Nependeath's Honey online. All I want to say is it is very possible to hunt Nependeath's Honey now!!
