chinoy senti

a friend's hilarious blog got me all sentimental all of a sudden. meet teresa teng, by far one of the most famous chinese balladeers EVAH!!! her songs are timeless and known by almost every chink the world over, bridging generations and countries even!!

though her songs used to flood the airways back in the 70's and 80's, now you mostly just get to hear her in chinese restaurants over dinner or dimsum. there are also the occasions wherein chinese wedding singers or half drunk relatives hitting the karaoke machines attempt at her graceful voice but only manage to do a really cheesy number...

i found this video of one of her more famous songs "the moon represents my heart". just to show you that her songs transcend age and culture, my mom was looking over my shoulder as the song played and WE started singing together!!!! ahahahaha....
