Re: Chinese Songs

For those of you who share Ching Kilakil's interest in Chinese songs, let me recommend http://www.chinese-tools.com/. The texts include pinyin (Romanized form) and hanzi (characters), as well as word-for-word English translations. "Laoshu Ai Dami" (Mouse Loves Big Rice), "Tong Hua" (Fairy Tale), "Amani" (Peace), and several other popular Mandarin/Cantonese songs can be downloaded in MP3 format or viewed via embedded YouTube videos. The site can be a great resource for those who wish to either study Chinese culture or polish their Mandarin Chinese.

Here's one of my favorite Mandarin pop songs, "Lao Shu Ai Da Mi" by Yang Chen Gang (the song has 16 versions - see transliteration here):

I stumbled on your blog while searching for IGOROT blogs. I've read some of your blog entries - very insightful and well written. I will be relaunching my website in the next few weeks and will note you down in my Igorot Blogger's section.

Cheers
