比悲傷更悲傷的故事》影集版 主題曲
[More Than Blue Netflix Series Theme Song]

Advertisements

你没带走 所有的思念
You did not take away,
All my thoughts for you
请退回我的抱歉 请讨厌我的讨厌
Please return my apologies,
Please hate my intolerable deeds
完整的故事 不完整的圆
A complete story of an incomplete story
最悲伤的事 是我还在原点
The saddest thing is that,
I have never moved a step from the starting point

Advertisements

我也厌倦 廉价的誓言
I am also tired of meretricious promises
依赖着你的依赖 却还期待着期待
Relying on your reliance on me,
Yet I’m hoping for a chance to hope
卑微的字眼 配合的表演
All I have are mediocre words,
To go along with your wishes
最悲伤的事 是你不拖不欠
The saddest thing is that,
You made a clean exit

Advertisements

别回头 每当你又亏欠我
Don’t look back,
You won’t know how much you owe me
日日夜夜 近近远远
Day and night,
Near and far
感觉会替代感觉
Feelings will replace feelings
遗憾从未走远 只是幸福已经不见
Regrets have not gone far,
Yet happiness is no longer in sight

Advertisements

给自己 一个不爱的理由
Finding myself a reason not to love
真真切切 隐隐约约
It was true yet gentle,
Faint yet genuine
寂寞表现了表现
Loneliness has expressed an expression
尽管下雨的街头 也曾有你的守候
Rain or shine, you were always there for me

Advertisements

我学习著 潮汐的时间
I’m learning about tide times
提醒着你的离开 却存在我的存在
Reminding me of your absence yet reminded me of my presence
孤独的永远 轻抚著从前
As I gently caress the past, loneliness will live with me forever
最悲伤的事 是我们还想念
The saddest thing is that we have never stopped missing
别回头 每当你又亏欠我
Don’t look back,
You won’t know how much you owe me
日日夜夜 近近远远
Day and night,
Near and far
感觉会替代感觉
Feelings will replace feelings
遗憾从未走远 只是幸福已经不见
Regrets have not gone far,
Yet happiness is no longer in sight

Advertisements

给自己 一个不爱的理由
Finding myself a reason not to love
真真切切 隐隐约约
It was true yet gentle,
Faint yet genuine
寂寞表现了表现
Loneliness has expressed an expression
尽管下雨的街头 也曾有你的守候
Rain or shine, you were always there for me

给我们 一个相遇的借口
Giving ourselves an excuse to meet again
心心念念 轻轻浅浅
Longing and yearning, lightly and gently
眷恋执著著眷恋
Nothing can stop me from missing you dearly
再次重逢的午后 会是悲伤的尽头
The day of reunion shall be the end of all sadness

Translated by PinkOlifant.

说真的,第一次听到这首歌,我心存偏见。我太爱电影版的主题曲《有一种悲伤》了,我不相信有另一首歌能说着同个故事并取代它。我的“相信”没有错。

这首歌不是为了取代《有一种悲伤》。这部影集版不是为了取代电影版。

影集版多了一层故事,让我发现相同的悲伤可以以不同的方式呈现。不得不佩服“悲伤”啊。

这首词难翻死了。“依赖着你的依赖”、“眷恋执着着眷恋”、“寂寞表现了表现”…拆解文字背后的意思后本该开心,结果却更悲伤了。

有些句子,在我还没看完影集版时一直想不通,看完后更能明白其中想表达的。

若不看影集版,也许这首歌还不至于那么悲伤呢。

Early in the morning
一大清早
Lost inside my sleep
迷失梦中
The nightmare is expensive
昂贵是梦魇
The memories are free
自由是回忆
But nothing lasts forever
但却无一永久
Not the rhythm or the beat
拍子与旋律是唯一不朽
It tells us we are moving
带领我们随之摆动
It brings us to our feet, ay
带动双脚随之舞动

I’m gonna live my life
我将活出我的生命
And not justify
无需解释或证明
If I’m living a lie
即使一切在谎言中进行
I don’t want no pennies for your thoughts and I’m
你的意见我也丝毫不在意
Gonna live tonight
今晚我要活出我的样子
Like I’m gonna die
仿佛明天将会面临生死
You ain’t got no say on who I am
我不会让你定义我是谁

Lose control
失去控制

I just wanna dance and live my life
我只想尽情舞蹈活出自我
I came here to clear my mind
把所有烦恼抛之脑后
And lose control
然后失去控制
Lose it over you
对你失去控制
I don’t need no rеason to be free
对于我,自由无需理由
I just want you here with mе
对于我,此刻只需你在我身边

日落照在脸上热热的
The setting sun shone warmly on our faces
这周末去哪儿玩呢
Where should we head to this weekend?
靠在我肩膀你自言自语
Leaning on my shoulder, you mumbled to yourself
把袖口衣角卷起
Rolling up your sleeves
夏天要过去
Summer was coming to an end

听说午夜会有流星雨
Hearing that there would be shooting stars at midnight
买好多吃的东西
We bought lots of food
拿给我看你抄写的歌词
You showed me the lyrics you’ve copied
小时候胖的样子
Showed me the photographs of your chubby self when you were a kid
关于你的事
Shared with me your memories

我们好好的
We will be fine
我们好好的
We will stand by each other’s side
当初你给我第一个拥抱
The first hug you’ve given me, do you remember?
你害羞着撒娇
Shy as a squirrel you were
我们好好的
We will be fine
偶尔是会有些小小纷争
Though we may quarrel sometimes
你留的灯
Lights were on
旁边饭盒上这样写着
You left a note by my dinner
我们好好的
Saying, we will always stand by each other

天气预报午后还有雨
Weather forecast stated that the rain would stay beyond noon
送雨伞楼下等你
With an umbrella, I waited for you
你说没干透的衣服别穿
You reminded me not to wear clothes that were not fully dry
喝水速度要再慢
To reduce my speed of drinking water further
嘘寒过问暖
Never failed to keep me warm with your gentle reminders

要怎么独自面对所有难题
How do I face all the problems alone?
我已经用尽所有力气
I’ve used every ounce of my energy
太多时候快不行
Many a times, when I was reaching the breaking point
想要举起白旗
Ready to concede defeat
回头你就在那里
You’re there when I turned around

你的爱给我一切
Your love provides me with everything
去追寻梦想不停歇
To chase my dream tirelessly
让我能
Allowing me to
Go on and on and on, on and on and on
继续前进

Just stay with me
别走
Just stay with me
请你别走
Just stay with me
请你留在我身边

因为是你
Because it’s you
给我勇气
Who give me the courage
继续前进
To go on and on

一个人要怎么翻山又越岭
How do I conquer all the difficulties alone?
当我已经快喘不过气
Whenever I’m running out of breath
每一次快要倒地
Whenever I’m about to collapse
想要选择放弃
Whenever I want to just give up
伸出手的就是你
You are there to extend your hand

你的爱给我一切
Your love provides me with everything
去追寻梦想不停歇
To chase my dream tirelessly
让我能
Allowing me to
Go on and on and on, on and on and on
继续前进

Just stay with me
别走
Just stay with me
请你别走
Just stay with me
请你留在我身边

因为是你
Because it’s you
给我勇气
Who give me the courage
继续前进
To go on and on

Just promise me
请你答应我
Just stay with me
别走
Just stay with me
请你别走

So, let’s talk about haemorrhoids/piles

I hope to gather all necessary information in one post for you so you do not have to open so many tabs to understand about haemorrhoids/piles. To whoever reading this, I feel you :’)

1. What?

Haemorrhoids, also known as piles (Chinese: 痔疮), are abnormally enlarged and bulging blood vessels in and around the anus and lower rectum1.

Two types –

(A) External
• develop near the anus
• covered by very sensitive skin
• painful swelling may occur if blood clot develops
• feels like a hard, sensitive lump
• bleeds only if it ruptures

(B) Internal
• develop within the anus beneath the lining
• painless bleeding and protrusion during bowel movements
• can be pushed back if mild

Internal Vs External haemorrhoids

Four degrees2

1st degree: bleed but do not prolapse
2nd degree: prolapse and retract on their own (with or without bleeding)
3rd degree: prolapse but must be pushed back in by a finger
4th degree: prolapse and cannot be pushed back in

Advertisements

2. Why you and me?

Common contributing factors1,3:

  • Ageing (it’s ok, we can learn how to prevent it from worsening!)
  • Chronic constipation or diarrhoea (watch your diet!)
  • Pregnancy (noble mums)
  • Hereditary (it’s ok, we can learn how to prevent it from worsening!)
  • Faulty bowel function due to overuse of laxatives (are detox products necessary?)
  • Straining during bowel movements (linked to constipation)
  • Spending long periods of time in toilet (stop bringing your phone everywhere…)
  • Weight-lifting (your choice :))
Advertisements

Author’s experience:

Of course, the fact that you are reading this post means that you suspect yourself having pile(s). I want to tell you that it is alright, almost one in two will be affected by pile at some stage in their lives1. I spotted mine when I was fifteen. It did not bother me for years although it did become slightly larger and one day in my early 20s, the second pile appeared out of nowhere. Usually they would not be affected as I pass motion but they would swell if I attempted extremely spicy food such as Mala :P. Nonetheless, slight swelling and occasional constipation did not deter me from eating what I wanted. Until things got worse.

Whenever I passed motion, the swelling of my piles worsened. I thought that the way I wiped was not clean enough so I would wash with soap BUT this action is a big NO NO4. (Soap can dry out and irritate piles! Water is sufficient.) Soon, I experienced itch so severe that my sleep was disrupted. Like most of us, I felt embarrassed about my condition and never wanted to visit a doctor but the itch was killing me. I scratched my head to think of something that I can apply to temporarily stop the itch. I googled and found out that tea tree oil might help!5 After application, I didn’t bother if it will help and rushed my ass, literally, to the nearby polyclinic. Thankfully, I could feel the itch subsiding as I made my way there.

I was anxious about the examination by the doctor as it was so embarrassing. However, I was told to lie sideways, hug my knees, and pulled down my pants to the extent that only my buttocks were exposed (so yeah our reproductive organs are safe). The examination was quick as my swelling piles were already waving their hands in the doctor’s face. I was given a tube of Proctosedyl ointment and eighteen days’ worth of Diosmin tablets.

Application of the ointment was extremely tedious and I would suggest if you end up having to do a deep application, wash with water and dry the area before inserting the cannula. The ointment (all kinds of ointment actually) is very greasy. To me, the ointment did not help much so I would not recommend you to buy ointments online to try to cure the piles on your own. After diligently eating the medication prescribed, my piles no longer swell. Unfortunately, they are still there.
What can I try to do to prevent surgery?

4. How? (Home remedies VS Non-Surgical Procedures VS Surgeries)3, 8

Home remedies:

a) Prevent constipation
– moderate-fibre diet (more fruits, vegetables & whole grains)
– drink plenty of water (at least 8 glasses of water per day)
– exercise regularly (at least 60 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity per week)

b) Avoid holding off bowel movements for too long

c) Avoid sitting on the toilet for more than 5 minutes (just don’t bring your phone or book in, it is very doable)

d) Topical treatments
– Apply over-the-counter haemorrhoid cream (Effectiveness varies between people)
– Use pads containing witch hazel or numbing agent (I personally did not try this before so I am not sure about its effectiveness)
– Apply tea tree oil (as mentioned under experience)
– Insert suppository for piles (I personally did not try this before so I am not sure about its effectiveness)

e) Soak regularly in warm bath or sitz bath (Effectiveness varies between people)

Advertisements

NON-SURGICAL PROCEDURES:

a) sclerotherapy – a chemical is injected into the haemorrhoid to decrease its size, which will happen over several weeks

b) rubber band ligation – a method to cut off the blood supply to the haemorrhoid by tying an elastic band around it, causing it to fall off in up to 10 days

c) electrotherapy – a gentle electric current is applied to your piles to shrink them

d) infrared coagulation – an infrared light is applied to shrink the piles by cutting off blood supply

e) Oral medications Used to treat small bleeding piles

SURGICAL TREATMENTS:

a) Haemorrhoidectomy – complete surgical removal of the piles

b) Stapled haemorrhoidopexy – removal of piles using a special stapler device (less painful than “conventional” haemorrhoidectomy)

c) Transanal haemorrhoidal dearterialisation (THD) – Using an ultrasound to locate the problematic blood vessels and stitching the piles

Advertisements

5. When? (to seek treatment)

Usually it is fine to live with piles as long as they do not bleed or swell severely. However, if they cause irritation, result in unbearable itch, swell continuously without showing any sign of recovery, it is highly recommended to seek a doctor’s advice whether to undergo a surgery to remove them or not.

To note, do not be overly optimistic about the surgery, piles do reappear after surgery. In fact, about 5% of the patients redeveloped piles after surgery.6 The success of the surgery depends heavily on the effort of patients to lead a healthier and “piles-friendly” lifestyle.

6. Where? (to seek treatment)

Specialist Services at Singapore General Hospital:
Call 6321 4377

Specialist Services at Mount Elizabeth Hospital:
Call 6250 0000 (Orchard) / 68986898 (Novena) or make an appointment online (https://www.mountelizabeth.com.sg/make-appointment)

Or you can visit the nearest polyclinic and request a referral to one of the governmental hospitals.

7. Do haemorrhoids lead to cancer?

As I was researching about piles, I came across “anal cancer”. The signs of anal cancer such as bleeding from the anus or rectum, a lump near the anus, itching or discharge from the anus, and a change in bowel habits7 are very similar to that of haemorrhoids. There is no way for us to tell the difference unless we go for tests, if you are worried, please see a doctor to correctly diagnose your symptoms.

On the other hand, if you are sure that the condition you have is piles instead of cancer, then good news to you, research shows that there is no relationship between piles and cancer1. But once again, we cannot be too optimistic about anything. A healthy and active lifestyle is the way to go!
