She was just such a great singer............

Timi Zhuo 卓依婷 - 谁料皇榜中状元

I am a huge huge fan of classic Chinese opera ballads, and music.Here is Timi Zhuo 卓依婷 one of my all time best singers singing a classic Chinese opera ballad call the Emperor's Female son-in- law.This song is an excerpts from some of the most classic and popular Chinese opera ballads.

为救李郎离家园 I left homeland for the life of my husband
谁料皇榜中状元 Unexpectedly I won the first place in imperial examination
中状元着红袍 Number one scholar is wearing the red garment
帽插宫花好啊好新鲜 It's quite a new and exciting experience for me
我也曾赴过琼林宴 I have been invited to emperor's banquet
我也曾打马御街前 I have been riding a horse along the emperor's street
人人夸我潘安貌 People praised me of my beauty
原来纱帽罩婵娟 but never know I'm actually a woman
我考状元不为把名显 All I have done is not for fame
我考状元不为作高官 and glory
为了多情李公子 but for my beloved husband
夫妻恩爱花好月儿圆 I wish someday we could be together again.

This album of Timi was released in 2003.

First Dentist visit.......................................

Today was my Daughter's first visit to the dentist, and just getting ready was a drama in itself. i had to call in sick from work just to take these two, and to make matter worse it was 20 degrees outside, and Keira did not not want to wear her winter jacket.

Keira and her mom getting ready to see the Dentist.

For a guy who grew up under the hot African sun, the 20 degree weather was a killer...

Keira in one of moods........

Even the Doctor could not get her to open her mouth.......

All in all it was good to spend the whole day with family.
