Random Summer Pics..........................

We have been having a lot of fun lately and taking advantage of all the good weather we have been getting. When Keira is not inside doing one of her many Justin Bieber's routines or trying my patience with all her running around, we usually like to go out and enjoy the nice weather.

Song of the Week.......

This is by far one of my favorite songs from the legendary Taiwanese singer Teresa Teng, Miss Teng's ability to connect with people when she perform was amazing, my only regret is that she did not live long enough for me to see her perform in person.

Check out this video as Teresa Teng sings her hit song (Ni zen me shuo, 你怎麼說, What Do You Have To Say ?) and interacts with people in the audience, at the queen Elizabeth stadium during her 1982 concert in Hong Kong.

Teresa Teng - Ni Zen Me Shuo - What Do You Have To Say?

你怎么說 | Ni Zen Me Shuo | What do You have to Say?

*我没忘记 你忘记我
*Wo mei wang ji ni wang ji wo
*I haven’t forgotten, but you’ve forgotten me.

Lian ming zi ni dou shuo chuo
You even get my name wrong

Zheng ming ni yi qie dou shi zai pian wo
Goes to show that you've been lying to me

Kan jin tian ni zen me shuo
Let's see what you have to say today

#Ni shuo guo liang tian lai kan wo
#You say that you'll come look for me in a couple of days

Yi deng jiu shi yi nian duo
But I've waited for over a year

San bai liu shi wu ri zi bu hao guo
365 days is not easy to get by

Ni xin li gen ben mei you wo
I am not in your heart at all

Ba wo de ai qing huan gei wo
Return my love to me
