Translations of CR 903 Interviews
October 8, 1997
Vani: Yeah, we continue w/ Vani..
Vani: We're also "Musician's Hangout" friends. That's why we have this Leo 'mark' person, 'mark' big Vivian...in this program for this week, we're talking together and Leo has a lot of things that is representing the "Musician's Hangout" listeners and people who care about Vivian to talk to her about.
Leo: yes, well I think there are many friends who really want to know if you are right now considered as living secretly (staying away from the public).
Viv: I don't consider it as that. I
don't know why people think I'm living secretly. I do go out.
Leo: yeah, there was a photograph of you going out....
Viv: Someone took a picture of me, so
that means I went out. I can't say that I always hide in my house. I still
have a normal lifestyle. If I have to do something, then I will go do it.
Leo: But can it be called eh....like....
Vani: like you're totally out of it....
Leo: yeah, like considered a normal lifestyle, like you seldom come into contact w/ the entertainment media.
Viv: actually, it is kind of like how you said it, that feeling. Because it seems to be a long time since I've seen the media and haven't done things that are related to singing or acting type of job. But I do act in TV ads, so it's not that I do nothing. But I don't have to see the media, or have to dress up and appear really nicely. It's been so long since I've bought clothes. That's why I feel it's different than what I normally did.
Leo: So what do you normally do a lot?
Viv: Uhm, buy ice cream...hahaha.
Leo: Do you go to the same shop to buy it?
Viv: and go to dinner w/ you (Leo). Very busy..yes.
Viv: No really..normally what do I do?..well, right now I'm learning how to compose music, by using the computer to learn. So I bought all the tools and learn it at home. I'm also learning how to cook.
Leo: What do you cook the most?
Viv: I try to cook a little bit of everything...haha..
Leo: So lately do you have a really good dish which you specialize in?
Viv: Lately?..eh..really good...eh..well, it's not good to be proud of myself....I don't want to say. I'll tell you about how I messed up on a dish.
Leo/Vani: okay okay!
Viv: Lately, I tried to make egg rolls. I thought it was going to be really easy. So I wrapped the egg rolls up, and then deep fry. At first when it was frying, the egg rolls weren't changing color, so I thought it would take a long time to do it, so I went to go talk to some people. After talking and I came back, all the egg rolls were hard and turned black. So I couldn't eat it. It was like a rock. Not successful..messed up. But after this event, I think from now on, I can make the egg rolls really good. And then serve it to you. haha..
Leo: So you only eat egg rolls for a meal?
Viv: Yes, it's okay. I'm like that. One meal I eat all egg rolls. I don't need any other dishes.
Leo: Next time you cook, watch the TV and cook....you know..(those cooking shows like) "Mrs. something".
Viv: Oh, no I really don't watch. I would look at cook books, the ones that have drawings in it and step by step instructions..which is easier to learn. Because I used to not know anything, but now I think it's kind of fun.
Leo: So do you usually go to the street market or supermarket to buy the food?
Viv: Oh, I will go to the supermarket more. The street market I would also go, but I would need someone to accompany me. Going by myself, I don't really dare.
Leo: But you went to buy ice cream by
Viv: hmmmmmmmmmmm............ I won't tell you.
Viv: Are you always watching me? ha?
Leo: I only remember..
Vani: it's in the gossip magazine..
Leo: I always look at those gossip magazines, and they did such a great report.
Vani: Perhaps it was just a coincidence that they saw me. Uh, I actually seldom go to buy it..and go to that area. Bump right into me...
Leo: Do you exercise?
Viv: Exercise..yes...very simple...play ball, that type.
Leo: What type of ball?
Viv: Any sport that has a ball. Lately I've learned how to play tennis. I heard you're really good at it, is it?
Leo: Oh, I can't.
Leo: My exercise is worse than you.
Viv: Then I can find you to play.
Leo: Then you would beat me for sure.
Leo: to give you more confidence, right?
Viv: yes, yes. When should we play?
Vani: Are you for real?
Viv: Really, really. I'm serious.
continuation of Viv's song
Leo: Are you aware of what's going on
in entertainment? ..like for TV, or what movies are showing, or what songs
are popular now?
Viv: Eh, songs I will always listen since I always turn on the radio. Especially Mr. Ku's (Leo's) songs I lately hear...haha..
Viv: Your song's air time is really a lot. What did you do? ha?
Leo: I'm hard at work promoting.
Viv: There's no way they play your songs so much. Aiy...there's like a black market (meaning record company pays radio station to play more of his songs) ...haha..
Vani: So is there??
Leo: No. there's no black market...."yut fun gow waan, yut fun sow wok." (one point to give, one point in return).
Viv: Aiy, congratulations to you, congratulations to you that you have this day. haha..
Viv: but really, I really like listening to music...always listen..such as your songs I like. And lately, I think Miriam Yeung's songs sound good too. hmm..there's lots that I pay attention to.
Leo: Then how about TV programs or movies?
Viv: Uhm, movies I watch, TV programs is less.
Vani: Do you go to the movie theatre to watch?
Viv: yes, I go to the movie theatre. I like to go to the theatre to watch. Just any type of new American movie I watch basically. I won't let any one of them pass me by. TV is less.
Vani: So did you watch Leo's latest
Viv: You don't even treat me to go see...or give me your CD.
Leo: Uh oh...I think all my evidence of being guilty is hitting my body.
Viv: but for CDs, I buy my own.
Leo: Oh, I'm already prepared to give the CD to you.
Viv: okay, then treat me to the movie
Leo: my movie..did you know that I will soon have another movie out?
Viv: oh, I saw a picture of you and Charlie. You're acting as a killer, right?
Vani: no, you were acting as the killer...
Leo: I'm acting as a policeman..haha... I look like a killer?
Viv: you do look like a killer...hehe. The movie plot is not bad. I think I will go see ....if you treat me to see it.
