今年是周璇诞辰100周年,嬿青私房菜从她的8首经典歌曲获取灵感,创意8道上海佳肴,配合书法家陈亮和画家莫尼作品,以及本地收藏家黄汉民电影史料收藏,诚意推出“周璇之夜迎新晚宴”!

        周璇短暂的一生,拍摄了四十余部影片,演唱了两百余首歌曲。她是上个世纪三四十年代上海最耀眼的明星,她的电影和歌声曾给“孤岛”时期的人民带来安慰和愉悦,描摹出或迷惘或享乐的旖旎浓郁的海派风情。
      
疫情笼罩下的新加坡,也有几分孤岛的意思,外面的人进不来,里面的人出不去。张爱玲在《小团圆》里说:“雨声潺潺,像住在溪边,宁愿天天下雨,以为你是因为下雨才不来”。在这多雨的季节,因为疫情,倒意外促成一场又一场人间小团圆,有时滞留是为了看更好的风景。
       
        让我们在2020年雨季的最后几天,在上海美酒佳肴中回忆水银灯下的《马路天使》,留声机畔的《天涯歌女》,家家《凤凰于飞》,户户《月圆花好》,在穿越时空周璇的美好旋律中共品《四季歌》,《合家欢》。
       
多少年过去了,周璇的歌声,仿若一颗时空胶囊,总能开启人们对老上海的纷繁回忆与想象。光阴荏苒,四季轮转,欢迎你以《花样年华》的装扮,与我们一起为这个《疯狂的世界》干一杯,辞旧迎新!
