The Moon Represents My Heart

In a few days time, the Mid-Autumn Festival or more popularly known as Mooncake Festival will be celebrated. Have you got your moon cakes and lanterns ready?

I did not buy many moon cakes this year as I felt they were too pricey and not worth my hard earned money. But I guess it's OK to spend money on worthless things once in a blue moon right?

I was actually over the moon when I received a few moon cake gifts this year. Definitely saved me from spending too much on them!

Anyway, today's post is not really about the Mooncake Festival, but since we are talking about the moon, I thought why not let me play you a song related to the moon?

I am sure you have heard of this song called "The Moon Represents My Heart". It's a Chinese classic made famous by the late singer Teresa Teng. If you have not heard of this song before, well watch this video.

This song had been sung to death by so many artists and non-artists alike it's now considered one of the most famous Chinese songs in the world. Guess what? Even our local superstar singer Siti Nurhaliza also did a cover version of this song!

Listen to her rendition below.

How do you like Siti's version?

I am not good at singing, so I will play this song on my piano instead. As usual, please excuse some slips and errors in my playing. I hope you will moon over it! Haha!

And by the way, have a Happy Mooncake Festival!
