Sometimes i could not apprehend well,
when the world had cheated me,
So I went away

Sometimes I could not apprehend well
When everybody left
I still stood there,like be in the desert

Sometimes i could not apprehend well,
They fought with each other
And i couldn't find any happiness

Sometimes I could not apprehend well
what you wanted me to do
And forgive me i couldn't sell my soul out

Sometimes I could not apprehend well
(Sometimes I could not apprehend well)

Well,don't you know that classic music is a wonderful kind of music and it chooses its listeners or fans in other words.I am not very good at it,just had heard some such as Sonatas by Beethoven in which Opus 27-Moonlight is what I like most.I aslo admire Mozart-an Austrian musician.And I am very proud if I am a fan of this kind music.How pity,I could not apprehend it well.I think you have not read this saying yet,have you?
". . . Music is neither old nor modern: it is either good or bad music, and the date at which it was written has no significance whatever. Dates and periods are of interest only to the student of musical history. . . . All old music was modern once, and much more of the music of yesterday already sounds more old-fashioned than works which were written three centuries ago. All good music, whatever its date, is ageless - as alive and significant today as it was when it was written ..." -Peter Warlock.

Hello !
I am Vietnamese, I will introduce you about Vietnam
Viet Nam is a small country in Southeast Asia with many wonderful landscapes that Natural has granted , Dalat is beautiful and romantic city located in mountains and hills covered by cold climate nearly the whole year, the beauty of Dalat so wonderful that no words can express, it has not only romantic beauty but also mysterious beauty ; Nha Trang with many beautiful and peaceful beaches and desolate and waste islands ....
And Saigon where I was born and grow up, although Saigon was renamed Ho Chi Minh city after April 30 , 1975 but almost Vietnamese still prefer calling SaiGon to Ho Chi Minh City. Specific characteristic of SaiGon is Sai Gon market ( we prefer calling its former name to its present name "Ben Thanh " market ) you can get many things here ; the latest fashion, various kinds of fruits; many kinds of footwear ; original hand- made goods , pictures .....;and you should not ignore to enjoy Vietnamese food. Vietnamese special dishes are cha gio, banh xeo , mam, goi cuon,.....; and you will refresh yourself with a glass of sugar cane juice or coconut juice after journey. An unique mean of transport in SaiGon is Xich lo, it can help you traveling all streets in a city . However, it is banned at many main streets in Ho Chi Minh city
Mentioning to Saigon I can not skip Cho lon ,it is Chinese town in Southwest Saigon, there are many Chinese families living here, An Dong and Binh Tay market are places that many Chinese do their business
