Tong Hua (童話) - Fairy Tale

Hey, I don't expect that my computer has this Chinese font! Yippie!!! I can post the Chinese letters!! However, I don't speak nor write Chinese. I can only understand some words which my parents said when I was still a little girl, and then pronounce them with awkward tones. ^^v Not proud though.. wish I can speak Chinese fluently.

Okay, this is the first time I have to admit that a Chinese song can be sooooo beautiful. The harmony touches my deepest heart. The words are even better!!!
Not only the meaning of the lyrics, but it is best because it's written in Chinese. The language makes the ambience so soft and polite, and the grammar of the language really helps! The atmosphere of the song is perfectly bitter and romantic. Fragile, yet strong. What a combination! The melody, harmony, and language can touch me at some very deep level that any other song written in English can't.

And I really love the word 'star' in Chinese = 星星 (pronounced: xing xing). Aaww.. so beautiful.. It feels that the star is really twinkling because we have to repeat the sound 'xing'. It's just like 'blink-blink'. :) So, yeah.. the star is really really twinkling at this very night!

Btw, I get this video and lyrics from Youtube. A person with ID ek205 upload it to youtube and s/he provides all the lyrics there. I just copy it for my own collection of music in my blog. FYI, I prefer the translation in English in the video. It's more classic. Love it!

Now, enjoy! ;)
