The House of the Rising Sun
I had just send Jia Yin to school one morning when I saw a dazzling blood red sun above the horizon. I decided to take some photos of the beautiful sun after I parked my car but then the sun had transformed into a golden disc. This shot reminded me strongly of that classic song-House of the Rising Sun. If my memory served me correctly, my sister took me to the Federal Hotel's restaurant one evening over two decades ago just before I took a big step into the future; the revolving tower would turned slowly so as to allow patrons to view the different areas of Kuala Lumpur. It was there when I made a request for that song from the live singer. Its a haunting song which told a very sad story. Here then is the music video with lyric from the original singers-The Animals (1964).
