Happy Lunar New Year 2020 - (年鼠年快乐) Year of The Mouse (Rat)

My mouse mascot this year is famous Speedy Gonzales who will appear again soon.  Have a jolly good holiday my dear friends and blog supporters who are on Blog-Spot, YouTube,  Facebook, Twitter and my personal email.

Enjoy life while you may and listen to all the music you love, because they don't make them like they used to during the 60's - earlier and afterwards.

Music and dance, with Lunar New Year songs from the 60's and traditional Chinese dances in colourful silk samfoos, gowns and CNY dresses worn today in China and elsewhere.

In traditional Chinese custom, everything you wear must be new. Hee Hee.

Zhang Lu (張露), who will be introduced in the next posting, sings I Want Your Love, Wo Yau Ni Teh Ai, (我想你的爱) a beautiful piece and one any Chinese educated person would have learnt in his or her lifetime.

For a greener earth.
Happy Lunar New Year everyone.


Victor Woo’s instrumental on a Chinese New Song is a hot favourite on Brian Richmond’s vintage showcase


Gorgeous dresses


Very colorful and exotic costumes.

That Zhang Lu kind of song reminds me of my late mother's time, that still ringing in my head. Anyway wishing you "Gong Xi Fa Chai , Ang Pao Na Lai!!" 😀

Used to say it whenever I greet uncles, aunties those days when small....and I still use it when I wish old friends , just a fun gesture Andy.
