自從在2000年頭推出首張大碟"les bonbons sont bons",便一直自資出版音樂(曲詞編唱樂器和出版)及其他方式的創作(如短篇電影、寫作及簡單繪畫)至今。最初她希望製造一些類似英式流行曲的音樂,但是由於她的音樂能力太不所以最後開始了製作簡單的流行曲。很多人覺得她的音樂很兒歌、得意和能令人放鬆,但其實她的歌詞通常都是關於生命/生活的痛苦和哀傷的。

她的音樂曾被多個電視廣告使用,包括九巴、中電、匯豐銀行、生力啤和在歐洲多國播放的KIA Motors等。西班牙獨立廠牌Elefant Records也曾替the pancakes出版過一張大碟及黑膠唱片,在其他國家發售。Dejay從第一套麥兜電影起便不定期地跟麥家碧和謝立文合作,其中為《麥兜菠蘿油王子》製作的《咁咁咁》獲得了第二十四屆香港電影金像獎最佳原創電影歌曲。 聽聽 the pancakes 的音樂

the pancakes (Dejay as the only member)

Since she released her debut album "les bonbons sont bons" in early 2000, she has been making music (melody, lyrics, arrangement, vocals, instruments and self-financed publishing) as well as other kinds of creative works (such as short film, writing and simple drawings). At the very beginning she wanted to make Brit-pop like music, but as she is too musically incompetent, she turned out to start making simple pop music. Many people find her music childlike, cute and calming, while the lyrics are mostly about the sorrow, grief and pain in life.

Her tunes have appeared in various TV commercials, e.g. KMB (bus company), CLP Power (electricity company), HSBC, San Miguel Beer, KIA Motors (broadcast in various countries in Europe), etc. The Spanish indie label Elefant Records has released an album and a vinyl of the pancakes which were introduced and sold in other countries. Dejay has been working irregularly with Alice Mak and Brian Tse since the first McDull movie and the song "Gum Gum Gum" for the film "McDull, Prince de la Bun" has won the 24th Hong Kong Film Awards' "Best Original Film Song". listen to the pancakes' music
