We are not made equal. (Part 2) Teresa Teng

The greatest vocal icon of Asia with a sweet, untarnished natural beauty: Teresa Teng

She passed away suddenly on May 8, 1995 due to asthma in Chiang Mai, Thailand, at the age of 42.

A great loss to millions of her fans, including this blogger who is a banana, yellow outside, white inside. For those who still don't understand, it means a Chinese with an English-educated mentality. I don't know Mandarin, but I enjoy listening to Chinese music and songs.


(An update : My daughter presented me a Christmas gift this year 2011.  Never did before!  Guess what? A collector's set of 12 Cds and 5 DVDs of Theresa's songs including her life-story. That made a very happy father!)

We are not made equal. It's a fact.

Presenting The Greatest Teresa Teng with her 2 most popular classic renditions:



The Moon Represents My Heart.

English and Hanyu Pinyin Lyrics


English Translation

You ask me how deep my love for you is,
How much I really love you…
My affection is real.
My love is real.
The moon represents my heart.
You ask me how deep my love for you is,
How much I really love you…
My affection does not waver,
My love will not change.
The moon represents my heart.
* Just one soft kiss
is enough to move my heart.
A period of time when our affection was deep,
Has made me miss you until now.
* You ask me how deep my love for you is,
How much I really love you.
* ** Go think about it.
Go and have a look [at the moon],
The moon represents my heart.
Repeat *
Repeat **

She is also my favourite, Justin.


Music and song know no boundary, either you are 'banana', 'ciku', 'rambutan' or 'durian'.

One of my favourite song is 'The Moon Represents My Heart', ie 月亮代表我的心。

A true Malaysian,

How not to love this Icon? Even if one is deaf, one can still see the inner (and outer) beauty of this untarnished pearl!!

Even if one is deaf, and blind, one will still feel her "vocal vibration"!!!

Such is the greatness of highly gifted personalities.
