花樣年華 Florescent Age

作詞:范煙橋 Lyrics: Fan Yanqiao
作曲:林枚 Music: Lin Mei

周旋唱 Sung by Zhou Xuan

花樣的年華,月樣的精神,冰雪樣的聰明。
In my florescent age, luminal spirit, crystallinus wisdom
美麗的生活,多情的眷屬,圓滿的家庭。
La vie en rose, passionate relations, rises a perfect family.

驀地裡這孤島籠罩著慘霧愁雲,慘霧愁雲。
Sudden—this lone isle is shrouded with tragic mists and forlorn clouds, tragic mists and forlorn clouds.
啊!可愛的祖國幾時我能夠投進你的懷抱,
Ah! When can I return to you, my beloved country
能見那霧消雲散,重見你放出光明。
To see the mists and clouds dissipate, to see your brilliance again?

花樣的年華,月樣的精神。
Florescent age, luminal spirit.

12 Jesuit inventions and discoveries that might surprise you

 

Something to think about as you sit beneath the beach umbrella, sipping a G-and-T.

If not for the Society of Jesus, we would not be enjoying some basics taken for granted in the modern world. Nerdy academic Jesuits and their swashbuckling, globe-trotting missionary brothers have made significant contributions not only in astronomy, seismology, mathematics and technology, but also in theatre, botany, medicine and international cuisine.

何日君再来 When will you come again

Tr. YK Chan

沈 华 词 苑宏昭 曲 Shen Hua, lyrics; Yun Hongzhao, melody

张燕唱何日君再来

好花不常开 Beautiful flowers don’t always bloom
好景不常在 Beautiful sceneries don’t always show
愁堆解笑眉 Sadness desolates all smiles
泪洒相思带 Tears drench longing ties
今宵离别后 After we part tonight
何日君再来 When will you come again
喝完了这杯 Bottoms up then
请进点小菜 Please have a bite
人生能得几回醉 How often in life do we really get inebriated
不欢更何待 If you don’t enjoy life now, still awaiting what
来, Come on,
喝完这杯再说吧! Let’s finish this glass before anything else!
今宵离别后 After we part tonight
何日君再来 When will you come again
……………….
停唱阳关叠 Stop singing the farewell tune
重擎白玉杯 Cheering again with our precious glasses
殷勤频致语 Diligently and frequently we chat
牢牢抚君怀 I hold you tightly by your chest
今宵离别后 After we part tonight
何日君再来 When will you come again
喝完了这杯 Bottoms up then
请进点小菜 Please have a bite
人生能得几回醉 How often in life do we really get inebriated
不欢更何待 If you don’t enjoy life now, still awaiting what
哎! Aya!
再喝一杯,干了吧!One more again, bottoms up!
今宵离别后 After we part tonight
何日君再来 When will you come again
