Filipino-Chinese Friendship Day

Wŏménde Zhōngguó péngyou... hé píng!

Note: This song is entitled, "Amani." It was composed by Wong Ka Kui during his group's visit to Tanzania. I don't speak either Swahili or Cantonese, but I do know the message of this song -- it's an appeal for peace and goodwill for the sake of the children who bear the brunt of a battle-scarred earth. Amani is Swahili for "peace" and the words nakupenda, nakupenda wewe, tunataka wewe mean "I love you, I love you, you, we want you, you."
