On Understanding Mum

Okay I know I might be going a bit... influenced with my pink and squishy posting at school, but rest assured I'm not, have always been sentimental and have always known I love Mum a lot. I was reading Anton's blog while listening to my playlist of English song when I realized, darn, his blog is one with the MP3 player with playlist. But I couldn't find where it was so I just paused my media player, when the song caught me. A Malay song too.

See, I'm not really a fan of Malay songs. There were a few, no doubts. Used to like Amy Mastura and a few songs of different artistes. And yes, I do know them Malaysian singers. Those who've won the awards and such. But sorry to say, I'm not a big fan of Siti Nurhaliza. So when I heard this line "ingin ku lihatmu dewasa..." which means "I'd like to see you grow up...", I was touched instantly. And I found out it was from one of the award winners a few years back, Adibah Noor.

I knew that she won some local music award before, best vocal if I'm not mistaken, but I never heard her songs before. But I would never doubt her credibility. I love her actings, I love all her commercials.

So I listened to the song entitled "Terlalu Istimewa" a few times, trying to understand every single word in the song. It's a song about a mother losing her child. I was totally captivated by it, and still listening to it the day after. Needless to say, I like it. So I'm sharing it here, hopefully you'll like it too.

Tried to do a translation of the lyrics, but gave up in the end. LMAO.

Glad you share the same love for the lyrics. Adibah's rendition put a lot of soul in it. The 1st time I listened, tears jus swelled. It is a dedication to all people that I love, my late-Dad, my Mom, Gurus, family, best friend .....

Pray you have a wonderful weekend ya! ^_^

Oh, I love this song! Even sang it in karaokes. There are some nice Malay songs out there, but I prefer Indon songs - I think they have better quality.
