Chinese New Year Songs

Since the new year spirit is still on, I want to post the well-known Chinese new year song.

And here is the lyric if you want to sing it:

Gong Xi Gong Xi

mei tiao da jie siao siang
mei geh ren di zhui lee
jien mien di yi ju hua
jiu si gong xi gong xi
gong xi gong xi gong xi ni ah
gong xi gong xi gong xi ni

dung tian yi dao jing tou
zhen shi hao di siao xi
wen nuan di chuen feng
jiu yao chui sing da di
gong xi gong xi gong xi ni ah
gong xi gong xi gong xi ni

hao hao bing xue rong jie
yan kan mei hua tu rei
man man chang yeh guo chu
ting dao yi shen ji ti
gong xi gong xi gong xi ni ah
gong xi gong xi gong xi ni

jing guo duo sao kuen nan
li jing duo sao muo lian
duo sao xin er pan wang
pan wang chuen de xiao xi
gong xi gong xi gong xi ni ah
gong xi gong xi gong xi ni

Gong Xi Fa Cai

Hi everyone,

Happy Chinese new year :)

I’m not going to write a long post for now. Just a quick highlight on some popular Chinese New Year greetings.

I want to write this because sometimes people just say the greetings without really knowing the meanings. For example, some people think “Gong Xi Fa Cai” means “Happy New Year.” Well, it’s not. Check these out.
