《数一数二,数个 Happy New Year》 – Chinese New Year 2020 Song by ‘Lim Tay Peng’

“儿时爱吃红龟果的女孩, 捉迷藏躲不过最聪明的男孩。
数来数去, 都是难忘回忆”。

These nostalgic song lyrics from our original Chinese New Year song, 《 数一数二,数个 Happy New Year 》, transport many of us through time, back to our childhood days during the 1980s and 1990s.

During those years, many Chinese families, grandparents and young children alike, would enjoy eating the local delicacy ‘Ang Ku Kueh’, which has a red tortoise shell design and is filled with popular traditional fillings like mung bean paste or peanut paste.

Also, back then, children did not have iPads or iPhones for games or Youtube, and many of us would play hide-and-seek, scaring one another at HDB void decks and playgrounds, and even in our own HDB homes and staircase landings.

These beautiful memories of our childhood innocence have inspired the composer Peng Chi Sheng, one third of Lim Tay Peng, to pen this Chinese New Year song with “Ang Ku Kueh” as one of the main themes in the song.

The Chinese New Year Festival is one of the most celebrated festivals in all Chinese-speaking societies, where families go all out to celebrate with one another, organising family reunions and gatherings with friends to spread the festive cheer. However, instead of being practical-minded Singaporeans and counting (数来数去) the money in our Chinese New Year red packets, we would like to suggest that we spend more time counting the wonderful memories that we have collected since young, and also wish our loved ones countless blessings in the coming Lunar New Year!

《 数一数二,数个 Happy New Year 》 is LimTayPeng‘s 2nd Chinese New Year Song. Their 1st original Chinese New Year song composition was the song, 《 捞鱼生 》, which was commissioned by the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre (SCCC) in the year 2019.

“儿时爱吃红龟果的女孩, 捉迷藏躲不过最聪明的男孩。
数来数去, 都是难忘回忆”。

这句歌詞洋溢著舊時南洋溫情,句句勾起了許多八十至九十年代新加坡人的兒時回憶。

“紅龜果” 又稱紅龜糕,顧名思義,是個紅色印著龜殼圖案包裹著豆餡的糕點。它是陪伴了許多新加坡人的成長,也是許多在地人必吃、愛吃、常吃的美食。
而在科技入侵生活之前,孩子們都喜欢在鄰里玩耍打鬧。當年,“捉迷藏”無處不在。我們也曾“無處可藏”,還緊張的憋氣,希望自己不被發現。

這些回憶都是我們年少裡純真的美好。而作曲人‘馮啟勝’有感而發,以“紅龜粿”為主題寫下這首歌曲。
和多數華族家庭一樣,農曆新年對新加坡人來說也是一年最重要的節日。總有人倒數新一年的來臨,也有人數著紅包裡鈔票的數目。新一年裡,希望大家多係數那些珍貴的兒時回憶,多給予親友數不盡的祝福。

《 数一数二,数个 Happy New Year 》是LimTayPeng 既《撈魚生》後第二首賀年歌曲,由歌曲恭祝大家來年順利,萬事如意。
