My schoolmate Alex Ooi posted on Facebook this You Tube of Teresa Teng singing one of her all time greats, "The Moon Represents My Heart". I have heard this song scores of times over but not always by Teresa Teng.
Jeannie loved karaoke and this was one of two Teresa Teng numbers that she sang exceptionally well. Watching Alex's post brought memories flooding back especially when Jeannie's birthdate just passed on 27th June and the 3rd anniversary of her passing, 12th July is near. I probably have a video of Jeannie singing this song in my old home-video collection; really need to convert them into digital format soon!
Darling, I can still hear you singing this song...
The following is supposed to be the English translation of the lyrics that I got from the www:
The Moon Represents my Heart
1: You ask how deeply I love you, and just how great my love is. My affection is real, and my love is true. The moon represents my heart.
2: You ask how deeply I love you, and just how great my love is. My affection does not waver and my love doesn’t change. The moon represents my heart.
3: So soft was the kiss that has moved my heart. Such a deep affection makes me long for you now.
4: You ask how deeply I love you, and just how great my love is. Consider this, and look above. The moon represents my heart.
Consider this, and look above. The moon represents my heart
