Teacher’s Day

Today, September 28, is the official Teachers’ Day in Taiwan. The Philippines will celebrate this special day of appreciation to our “second parents” — the noble professionals in Ocotber 5.

During our class period, we attended a short program. Although the teachers were not given special attention, the language students from different classes had fun with the teachers and one of them sang “The Moon Represents My Heart” (月亮代表我的心). The Mid-Autum Festival (中秋節), also known as the Moon Festival or Mooncake Festival is fast approaching so they told us some tales and information about moon, mooncakes, and Chinese (and Taiwanese) way of celebrating this holiday. Chinese and Vietnamese celebrate it on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month. This year, it falls on September 30, 2012.

月亮代表我的心

你问我爱你有多深,
我爱你有几分?
我的情也真,
我的爱也真,
月亮代表我的心.
nǐ wèn wǒ ài nǐ yǒu duō shēn ,
wǒ ài nǐ yǒu jǐ fēn ?
wǒ de qíng yě zhēn ,
wǒ de ài yě zhēn ,
yuèliàng dàibiǎo wǒ de xīn.

You’re asking me how deeply I love you
how long lasting is my love:
My affection is real,
my love is also real
The moon represents my heart

你问我爱你有多深,
我爱你有几分?
我的情不移,
我的爱不变,
月亮代表我的心.
nǐ wèn wǒ ài nǐ yǒu duō shēn ,
wǒ ài nǐ yǒu jǐ fēn ?
wǒ de qíng bù yí ,
wǒ de ài bùbiàn ,
yuèliàng dàibiǎo wǒ de xīn.

You’re asking me how deeply I love you
how long lasting is my love:
My affection does not fade
my love does not change
The moon represents my heart

轻轻的一个吻,
已经打动我的心,
深深的一段情,
教我思念到如今.
qīngqīng de yī ge wěn ,
yǐjīng dǎdòng wǒ de xīn ,
shēnshēn de yī duàn qíng ,
jiāo wǒ sīniàndào rújīn.

A soft kiss already moves my heart
A moment of deep affection
has made me miss you until today

你问我爱你有多深,
我爱你有几分?
你去想一想,
你去看一看,
月亮代表我的心.

nǐ wèn wǒ ài nǐ yǒu duō shēn ,
wǒ ài nǐ yǒu jǐ fēn ?
nǐ qù xiǎng yī xiǎng ,
nǐ qùkān yī kàn ,
yuèliàng dàibiǎo wǒ de xīn.

You’re asking me how deeply I love you
how long lasting is my love:
Just go and think for a moment
just have a look for a moment
The moon represents my heart
