阻断措施或帮助戒赌

  有人说,只要连续21天持续做一件事,就能养成一种习惯,不论是好或坏的习惯。病毒阻断措施期间,国人每天都关心很多数字,如新增确诊人数、死亡人数等,但还有一些数字或许大家忽略了——万 字票和多多。

  我母亲是家庭主妇,她和她朋友每个月会花上好几百元投注万字 票。有一天她在饭后和我们聊天时,我突然发现她不再为万字票和多多烦恼,不再因为“马票没有开”而难过。她如今将更多注意力放在明天该为家人煮些什么新菜色上,也通过面簿等网络平台学习其他技 能。

  这让我发现病毒阻断措施也有它积极的一面。那些沉溺于赌博的人,不妨看一看自己的皮包或银行户头,是不是多了一点余额?他们 可以告诉自己,没有下注节省的这些钱,就好像中了头奖。

  有些人不惜拿吃饭钱,或者有更好用途的金钱,来下注“买个希望”,为的是追求赢钱的快感。阻断措施期间新加坡博彩公司和两座 赌场不能营业,很多人不能下注、不能赌博,可能已逐渐对赌博失去兴趣。阻断措施结束后,过去好赌的人应该认真考虑,不要再陷入赌 博了。毕竟没买就是赢了。

Ikea将在西部开设本地第三家分店!

Ikea-Jem-Singapore

为配合我国疫情阻断的措施,跨国居家零售品牌宜家(Ikea)自上个月初,暂时关闭了本地的两家分店。但记者认为,宜家在这次的阻断措施期间的处理,让人相当佩服!

除了大方公开独门招牌肉丸秘方,并让网购平台继续照常营业,之前被爆因为暂时关闭的消息一出,导致民众一窝蜂到亚历山大分店大排长龙准备囤购居家用品,在某种程度也影响了其品牌的形象。

但宜家可说是力挽狂澜,在这紧要时刻,宣布将在西部开设第三家分店,满足顾客的要求,以顾客的需求至上!

根据资讯网站Insideretail消息透露,宜家正紧锣密鼓地在西部购物商场Jem,筹备开设亚洲首家小型的家具概念店,让新加坡人不论东西南北,更贴近宜家!

据说,新的概念店面积约6500平方米,一共3层楼。店内将舍友宜家招牌餐厅,但因为是小型概念店的模式,里头将不设有儿童游乐专区和内置仓库。

趁着疫情期间,扩充在本地的业务;待疫情结束将招来更多的顾客上门,绝对是上上之策。

目前,宜家在本地拥有两家分店,分别坐落在淡滨尼和亚历山大,每年吸引超过7百万人前去购物。

96.3 Hao FM Good Chart enters its third week of voting, and the station has received approximately 300,000 entries for nominations and votes combined, reflecting the local audience’s enthusiasm towards the chart show!

Listener Cheek Loo left a message on 96.3 Hao FM’s Facebook saying: “96.3 Hao FM has “dug up” the forgotten songs that I used to love. For those who grew up in the 70s, 80s, and 90s, this is a station to tune in to!” Many listeners have expressed through various channels that they follow the chart results every Friday, hoping that the songs they voted for can enter the Top 10 list.

This week’s theme is “Local Hits”, with music veteran Lee Wei Song as the guest announcer alongside 96.3 Hao FM DJ Wen Guo Xian. Singaporean singer Mavis Hee, best known for her ballads, achieved stellar results on the charts. Out of the four songs that were nominated for the Top 30 list, three emerged in the Top 10.

Mavis Hee Takes Three out of Ten Spots on 96.3 Hao FM Good Chart

Local singer Mavis Hee rose to fame in the 90s, and she sets a new record with three of her songs being voted into 96.3 Hao FM’s Good Chart Top 10, under the “Local Hits” category. The three songs are namely “Yang Guang Zong Zai Feng Yu Hou” (阳光总在风雨后) in eighth position, “Yi Han” (遗憾) which came in sixth, and “Cheng Li De Yue Guang” (城里的月光) which took the top spot.

The songs Hee sang resonate deeply within the hearts of listeners. The top song “Cheng Li De Yue Guang” (城里的月光) performed significantly better, setting a 20 per cent difference compared to the runner up song “Jia” (家) sung by Kit Chan. Conceivably, the low key and sentimental Hee is a powerhouse that moves the hearts of many.

While announcing the charts, Lee Wei Song mentioned that the song which left the deepest impression was “Yi Han” (遗憾). Lee explained that he likes “Yi Han” (遗憾) with more than just reminisce in mind. He believes that “Yi Han” (遗憾) remains a true classic which is sincere and heart-warming, all without trying too hard.

With ever growing competition within the music industry today, Lee added that it is extremely complex for singers to put out new music. Most choose to release singles as a way to “test the market”, making every new song more attention-grabbing than ever. Comparatively, Lee feels that “Yi Han” (遗憾), although seemingly calm, carries deep meaning which makes it extremely intriguing.

Top 10 Songs Mostly from Local Television Shows Widely Loved By Listeners

This week’s Top 10 chart saw many local television theme songs and interludes. Among them, the top song “Cheng Li De Yue Guang” (城里的月光) is the theme song for the 1996 television show “Dou Fu Jie” (豆腐街). “Wo De Sheng Ming Zai Zhe Li” (我的生命在这里) is the theme song for 80s television show “Wu Jiao Ji” (五脚基), Eric Moo’s “Yi Wang Guo Qu” (遗忘过去) is one of the soundtracks for “Ka Fei Wu” (咖啡) and Chen Hanwei’s “Guan Huai Fang Shi” (关怀方式) is the theme song for “Qi Yue Qiao Jia Ren” (七月俏佳人). Clearly, the local audience have been influenced by television and enjoy listening to the hits associated with them.

This comes as no surprise, with listeners selecting such popular tunes regularly on 96.3 Hao FM’s song request segment, which runs daily from 6pm to 7pm and 10pm to 11pm. These catchy tunes evoke a sense of familiarity and paints a profound image of well adored local television shows.

In 1984, Lee Wei Song, together with his brother Lee Si Song, started composing originals for television shows. When asked about the phenomena of television theme songs taking majority of the Top 10 Spots, Lee Wei Song did not find it a surprise. In fact, seeing the list brought back countless memories of songs that were created for local dramas at that time.

“Every song speaks its own story,” Lee said during an interview with 96.3 Hao FM. “Majority of listeners are in their forties or fifties, I’m sure these songs accompanied them through courtship and hardships, making them unforgettable,” Lee added.

Lee Wei Song Encourages Local Musicians

Never Give up on Your Dreams

Helming the third week of 96.3 Hao FM Good Chart, Lee Wei Song took the opportunity to encourage local musicians, spurring them to persevere as they pursue their dreams.

He hopes for the younger generation to walk out of safe zones and take a leap of faith to embrace new opportunities. Lee added that aspiring musicians should always be on the lookout for new music and strive for improvement unceasingly. Most importantly, budding musicians have to understand the value of time, and let the experience of life shape the creation process of new works.

Lee Wei Song on the Future of Local Music

“Let me predict,” Lee Wei Song replied comically when asked about the future of local music, mimicking the actions of fortune-telling. Lee added that the rising competition makes it difficult to tell. “Afterall, I believe music stems from fun, and originates from play. We shall see how far the new generation is willing to go, the barriers they are willing to break”.

Tune in to 96.3 Hao FM this Sunday at 12 noon to catch this week’s Good Chart show, co-hosted by music veteran Lee Wei Song. Additionally, listeners will be treated to videos related to the 96.3 Hao FM Good Chart, which will be posted on the station’s official Facebook page.

最精彩的年代,最动听的好歌!96.3好FM《好歌发烧榜》这个星期进入第三周投选,投票情况非常踊跃。结合提名和目前投选活动,96.3好FM一共收到接近30万张票数,体现本地听众对《好歌发烧榜》的热情不断升温!

听众Cheek Loo在96.3好FM面簿留言:“96.3好FM把我已经忘记、曾经爱过的歌都挖出来了。对我们这些生长在70、80和90年代的人来说,这是必听的电台!”

Agnes Wong 则说:“入榜的十首歌曲,都是我的最爱!” 不少听众也通过面簿和Whatsapp向96.3好FM团队反应,他们每个星期五都会追听榜单,希望自己投选的歌曲可以入围10强名单中!

这个星期的主题是“本地流行”,报榜嘉宾是本地才子李伟菘,连同96.3好FM DJ温国贤。擅长唱抒情歌曲的本地女歌手许美静在30强的4首歌曲中,有三首入榜,并且成功夺冠,表现非常亮眼。

许美静一举拿下10大三个席位

走红于90年代的本地女歌手许美静,在今年的《好歌发烧榜》再刷新纪录,继上个星期刘文正连夺“台湾民谣”冠亚军的宝座,本周“本地流行”的10强榜单,许美静这次摘下3个席位,分别是“阳光总在风雨后” (排名第八)、“遗憾”(排名第六) 和 “城里的月光”(排名第一)。

尽管许美静近期在歌坛并不算太活跃,但她的首首经典歌曲都唱进听众心中,榜首歌曲“城里的月光”和第二名歌曲的票数相差20%,可见低调感性的许美静是走心的本地实力派歌手!

李伟菘在报榜时尤其对《遗憾》这首歌曲感触很深,他说:“我喜欢这首歌不是因为怀念过去,而是我觉得它很走心、很真挚,完全没有在炫技。”

他也说,现今的歌手出专辑不容易,一般会通过单曲来试探“水温”,因此歌曲都很需要有“性格”,才能抓住歌迷们的注意力。相比之下,《遗憾》对李伟菘来说,是淡中带有深层的意义,因此非常耐人寻味。

本地电视剧主题曲和插曲  深受听众喜爱

这个星期的榜单中,出现了好多首电视剧的主题曲和插曲。当中,榜首歌曲 “城里的月光” 是1996年《豆腐街》的主题曲,在KTV里更是必点K歌!《我的生活在这里》是80年代电视剧《五脚基》的主题曲,“遗忘过去”是电视剧《咖啡乌》的插曲、陈汉玮《关怀方式》也是《七月俏佳人》的主题曲,可见本地听众所喜爱的本地流行歌曲,很大程度受到了电视剧的影响。

这也难怪,96.3好FM平日的点播节目中(上午6到7点和晚上10点到11点),也经常会收到听众要求点播这些耳熟能详,而且朗朗上口的歌曲,让人一听到歌曲,就有不少深刻的画面涌现。

1984年便和弟弟李偲菘开始为本地电视剧创作歌曲,对于这周的“本地流行”由电视剧主题曲和插曲充斥榜单,李伟菘对于这样的现象,并不意外,甚至让他勾起很多当时为本地剧创作歌曲的回忆。

他说:“每首歌都有故事,而且听歌的人,应该都是40到50岁左右,这些歌陪着他们谈恋爱,失恋等等,一定是永远不会忘记的。”

李伟菘鼓励本地音乐人 不要放弃音乐梦想

担任第三期96.3好FM《好歌发烧榜》榜主的本地才子李伟菘也借由节目鼓励本地的音乐人不要放弃音乐梦想。

他更希望年轻一代的本地音乐人能走出安全区,勇于尝试新事物,不要“闭门造句”。

他也说:“他们应该多听别人的作品,不断和自己比赛,让自己一次次地进步。但更重的是,年轻人更要意识到时间的重要性,有些事情急不来,是靠时间的积累和人生的历练,才能写出动人的内容。”

李伟菘:年轻人要大胆尝试 玩出新风格

谈及本地音乐的未来,李伟菘首先非常逗趣地说:“让我先算一算(算命)。”

不过他说,现在的音乐市场比起之前竞争更激烈,他说:“真的很难说,音乐其实是玩出来的。年轻人会玩出什么新玩意,就要看他们多勇于新的事物。”

想回顾李伟菘和96.3好FM联合主持的第三期《好歌发烧榜》节目,可在星期天中午12点,通过96.3好FM空中,或下载SPH Radio App收听重温节目。听众也通过96.3好FM官方面簿收看《好歌发烧榜》的相关视频。
