Warning: If you stay here long enough you will gain weight! Grazing here strongly suggests that you are either omnivorous, or a glutton. And you might like cheese-doodles.
BTW: I'm presently searching for another person who likes cheese-doodles.

LINGERING PLUM FRAGRANCE

When I woke up it was with an echo of Anita Mui (梅艷芳 'mui yim fong') in my mind's ear, a song from her hit movie 'Rouge'. No, I shall not post a youtube, because the protectors of copyrights keep shutting down user accounts, and anything embedded today might well be gone tomorrow.
The song floats under the same name as the movie: 胭脂扣 ('yin ji kau').

Instead, I'll opportunistically post the lyrics.

胭脂扣 - 梅艷芳

誓言幻作煙雲字
費盡千般心思
情象火灼般熱
怎燒一生一世
延續不容易

負情是你的名字
錯付千般相思
情像水向東逝去
痴心枉傾注
願那天未曾遇

只盼相依
那管見盡遺憾世事
漸老芳華
愛火未減人面變異

祈求在那天重遇
訴盡千般相思
祈望不再辜負我
痴心的關注
人被愛留住

問哪天會重遇


The movie (also entitled 胭脂扣) is well worth seeing more than once. Both Anita Mui, who plays the courtesan, and Leslie Cheung (張國榮 'jeung kwok wing'), her lover, are no longer among the living.
But their memory lives on.

It really was a golden age of cinema.


This and other songs can easily be found on the internet, as well as movie clips, and Canto-pop by various artists. Please do so.
