The slow-loading of the page is because there is music preparing to play. The background song is Tsai Chin singing Forgotten Time. It is 192 kbps which is quite high mp3 quality.  To stop this music, please go to the foot of this page, and click 'pause' on the small player.  To lower the volume, click and 'drag' the player's speaker icon down the scale. The player is set in high volume as default, which I find too high.


Tsai Chin was born in Zuoying District, Kaohsiung City, Taiwan on the 22nd of December, 1957, and recorded her first album in 1980 for Seamount. "Cabbage" is from her 2nd LP "Qiu Jin" in 1981. By 1990, she had recorded 26 albums, and won the hearts of millions. She sings in both Mandarin Chinese and Taiwanese Hokkien. Tsai Chin married director Edward Yang in 1985, a marriage that lasted until 1995.
