中秋快乐!Happy Moon Festival!

It's Chinese Moon Festival again.

I received a video from a friend in Netherlands a week ago which is the first blessing to me for Moon Festival this year.

It brought tears in my eyes and made me think of my family in Taiwan.

I think it's beautiful and there's one of my favorite song in it.

It made me want to sing it and record it so I did.

Here it is to wish you all a Happy Moon Festival:



I posted the lyrics of this song here in 2009:
http://easywaytolearnchinese.blogspot.com/2009/10/chinese-pop-song-moonlight-in-town-by.html

How do you like my singing?

How much moon cakes and what kind of moon cakes did you have?
I miss the moon cakes in Taiwan. I am not able to have them for 8+ years since I came to the States. No one sells delicious moon cakes here. :(

Did you and family do anything special for this day?
Well, I recorded this song for my family, friend and you all. :)

Also, what songs do you like me to post lyrics on my blog?
I'm open to 3 song requests this month for my members.
