Wo mei wangji – ni wangji wo! 我没忘记你忘记我

“I haven’t forgotten. It’s you who forgot me! You can’t even pronounce my name right. It shows everything you ever told me was lies – let’s see what you’re going to tell me today.

You told me you were going to come and see me in a couple of days, but that was over a year ago. It’s not easy waiting more than 365 days. I’m not in your heart at all. Give my love back to me.”

Sophie and I perform this song which I was introduced to in my youth by a Malaysian Chinese friend Bee Chew Yoo.

My thanks go to Martin Chen of Strategia China for helping me to an mp3 and to the lyrics of this song.

我没忘记你忘记我
连名字你都说错
证明你一切都是在骗我
看今天你怎么说

你说过两天来看我
一等就是一年多
三百六十五个日子不好过
你心里根本没有我
把我的爱情还给我.

Other remarks:

This footage was taken further east than China, over in the Rusian far east with collegues from the Horwath (now Crowe Horwath International) network’s Beijing office. We had a summer valuing for Bank of China a huge Siberian forest as big as a European country, full of tigers, bears, snow leopards and chipmunks.

Here David Yang and Wincy Liu demonstrate some Chinese tongue twisters and we practice the phrase “Ni zhen niu” – or “you are a genuine ox”, along with the de rigueuer thumbs up sign, which apparently menas like “well done”, “you’re a good bloke”, etc.
