---------------------------

Yesterday morning, I had my first Saturday since Dec 1, 2008. I mean that first time I could have a rest in the weekend since I have completed last lesson. With a happy heart, I run and breathed the fresh air in the early morning in the US. Then I completed the re-translation, singing and recording of this Chinese Yunnan Nan folk in English and Chinese before 11:00am and I do hope it will bring you some exoticism and a big smile... :-)

For I would like to meet a friend at 10:15am, then to go to buy a new laptop at 11:45am, also for the time was too early to sing so that I could not sing in a normal style, maybe the song sounds a little bit funny? :-) And hope to get your excuse indeed. :-)

When the golden wind blows over the land,
I sing of my hometown’s golden autumn.
Lsurel flower are flying down,
Perfum fills the bungalow;
Rice wine is rippling,
sweet-smell drifts out of the windows.

Hey...hey...hey... hey...
hey...hey...hey...hey...
If you ask when my hometown is most beautiful,
it’s when the golden wind blows over the land...

When the golden wind blows over the land,
I sing of my hometown’s golden autumn.
Girls are embroidering,
singing full of the bungalow;
Villagers are drinking,
happily drank by the windows...

Hey...hey...hey... hey...
hey...hey...hey...hey...
If you ask me when the hometown is most beautiful,
it's when the golden wind blows over the land...

Lai...lailai..lai..lai..lai..lai,lai,lai.
Lai...lailai..lai..lai..lai..lai,lai,lai.
Lai...lailai..lai..lai..lai..lai,lai,lai.
