Just bought this book about the history of xinyao (chief editor Liang Wen Foo). $35 and come with a CD with 15 songs covering the span of the xinyao movement. As I listened can't help tear drops in the eyes as the book and the familar songs reminded me those good old days in the 70s. Many of them are my personal friends like Wen Foo and Sameul Tan. Some of them make it big while others settle down in their own way.

I guess those forumners about my age and are Chinese educated (not sure this term still understood by many or not) should have been part of this xinyao history.

Long story. Pple from old Nan Tah are of course Chinese educated. But generally also refer to late 70s early 80s people like me who studied Science subjects (Physics, Chemistry, Biology) in both Chinese and English languages. We took Chinese as 1st language (CL1) and English as 2nd language (EL2). Our 'O' Level we sat locally set paper and we were allowed to answer in either Chinese or English (for those Science and Math subjects). I am actually the 2nd last batch of Chinese ed who took EL2 at 'AO' level and EL1 at 'O' level in JC. After that were all GP already.

Generally Chinese ed did suffer a bit in the English speaking working environment government was promoting. Only now when China has big economic potential that things change a bit.

So I can write and speak OK English but will never be able to write like Mackie or Rameish.

Ahhh...I have a colleague who was educated under that system. She said many of her peers felt played out by that "experiment" after facing many difficulties in their careers. (Nantah is another controversial subject altogether. heh) Where did you buy the Xinyao book?I might want to check it out.

That cassette tape's design looks good!

Sake improves soundstaging and definitely Wasabi for the extra resolution."
