  1. 對面的女孩看過來 Church Camp Version

    Church Camp 2008 I was having fun coming up with 2 ads for FOCUS Church Camp 2008 for the FOCUS Mandarin Church over the last few weeks. I think the highlight has been playing a song parody of 對面的女孩看過來 (任賢齊/阿牛) last Friday/Sunday.

    The idea came up one evening. Since I am selling the church camp, I want a song that (1) is easy to change the lyrics (2) everyone knows how to sing -- to a point that they can sing along the modified lyrics that contains all the marketing messages! That gotta to be a marketer's dream that the targeted audiences can repeat what you are selling after you! Yes I know it was an old song, but then again I am an old man with limited knowledge of Mandarin pop songs :)

    So I had the idea on Wednesday, picked the song and told Jason on Thursday, finished up the lyrics on Saturday, and then went live on last Sunday, our first FOCUS Mandarin meeting at the Red Centre Theatre. I think it went pretty well so we played it again last Friday during the welcoming event. Hopefully efforts get converted to more signups.

    Big thanks to Jason whom I only told him about the song + lyrics on Saturday night, and he has to play guitar with me on Sunday morning without any rehearsal. Also big thanks to Judy for her photos from last year's church camp, where I have stolen many from to do the slides.

    Here are the lyrics.

    對面的女孩 看過來 看過來 看過來 復活節的假期哪裡玩 快報名去 Church Camp The Tops 的風景真好看 一邊山 一邊海 動物園的袋鼠很可愛 保證讓你樂開懷 我們的牧師是靚仔 他講道 最厲害 我們的堂主也不賴 禱告查經全包辦 我左看右看 上看下看 每個人都報名了 Church Camp 我想了又想我算了又算 真是值得才兩百塊 第三天是這次的題材 認識神祂的愛 讀聖經讓我們更明白 神的計畫真不簡單 晚上的活動很精采 唱歌跳舞 加比賽 四天三夜 充充滿滿 教會裡弟兄姊妹的愛 愛 愛~~~ 我左看右看 上看下看 身邊的人都已去了 Church Camp 我想了又想 我算了又算 新生只要一百九十真划算 我左看右看 上看下看 趕快找到 Irene 把錢包打開 復活假期 不要發呆 別再猶豫趕快報名 Church Camp 來 Church Camp 來來~~~ 來 Church Camp

    The lyrics actually makes most sense when you match them with the slides. You can download the karaoke slides by clicking on the image below.

  2. Google AdSense available for Traditional Chinese 繁體中文

    Google AdSense for content is now available to 4 new languages, adding to their big list of supported languages. One being the Traditional Chinese, 繁體中文, which also happens to be my preferred language. You can already do Traditional Chinese in AdWords if you have a product to sell, but now web content providers and bloggers in Taiwan and Hong Kong can finally get some dole from their websites through AdSense.

  3. 朋友的域名

    剛才煩到去書籤裡的幾個網站亂逛,結果發現一個朋友的部落格與團契的域名被搶走了! 慘啊!看看它的 WHOIS 資料,好像上個星期才被被修改的。域名的聯絡人以及聯絡資料都沒變,一切都還在他的名下,但 DNS 卻被改成,而整個網站也被改成了一個大廣告看板... 應該是忘了繳續用費,然後就被虛擬主機公司把域名給暫時挖走了。我知道你最近忙著搬家,但不要忘記去繳費喔!你那域名上好像還有滿多人的部落格在上面... 喔,大家也記得提醒提醒。要是有遇到的話。 這個星期... 煩。好煩。真的好煩。忙。好忙。真的好忙。累。好累。真的好累。
  4. 你不能不知道的台灣
