More beautiful songs from Timi Zhou 卓依婷.....

Over the past month now i have just become a huge, huge fan of Taiwanese singer Timi Zhou 卓依婷 , she reminds me so so much of the Legendary Teresa Teng, infact she is also known for singing miss Teng's songs, and has been called her "second generation" because they both share the same soft voice and a similar singing style.
I just bought her 1997 hokkien album entitle 恋梦(Love Dream) and i love it.

Here are two beautiful videos from the talented songstress...
卓依婷 - 小雨 (Small Rain)


She is just a great singer, and i can't wait till i have all her album in my collection

Another beautiful song from Fei yu ching 費玉清....

Over the week end i order some of Taiwanese singer Fei-yu ching 費玉清 CDs, from this website yesasia, and i just got them today. I think this guy is not only awsome, but hands down he is one of the best male singers in the Chinese speaking world. Here is another one of my favorite song from him.
費玉清/ 我怎能離開你

Part of the translation of the lyrics goes like this:

How could I leave you,
How could I abandon you.
You are always in my heart,
Please doubt me not.
Let our loves always together
And will never split apart
Besides you,
Who else could be my soul mate?
Blue flowers bloom in bunches,
They are named 'forget-me-not'
Please pluck one and put it to your heart.
Flowers are beautiful but may wither,
Only love should not alter
Me and you,
Together from the start to the end,
Please doubt me not.

Whats up with kids and cartoons........

I am not really big on watching cartoons especially the ones my daughter watch. but when you want to get her to take a nap you have to watch a cartoon with her. I just got her a copy of Disney's Mulan and she loves it, i was very impress with the movie myself, but i think she is gonna drive me crazy, this is the 40 or 50 times i think she has seen the movie, and she still wants to see it.
Here is part of the movie in Chinese...

secretly i know its awful, but i can't wait till the damm thing breaks, i am so sick of the movie right now lol.
