Wish You Happiness (Lyrics)

Sending you a gift of love, I wish you happiness.
No matter when or where you are, don't forget my blessings.
There are ups and downs (sweet and bitter times) in the journey of life, and a strong will is required.
Use your wisdom, work hard and sweat, and create your happiness.

送你一份愛的禮物,我祝你幸福。
無論你在何時,或是在何處,莫忘了我的祝福。
人生的旅途,有甘有苦,要有堅強的意志。
發揮你的智慧,流下你的汗珠,創造你的幸福。

Sòng nǐ yī fèn ài de lǐwù, wǒ zhù nǐ xìngfú.
Wúlùn nǐ zài héshí, huò shì zài hé chù, mò wàngle wǒ de zhùfú.
Rénshēng de lǚtú, yǒu gān yǒu kǔ, yào yǒu jiānqiáng de yìzhì.
Fāhuī nǐ de zhìhuì, liúxià nǐ de hàn zhū, chuàngzào nǐ de xìngfú.

La Enagüita by Ester Soré (Lyrics)

A "tonada chilena" is a Chilean art of singing. Its origin is from Spain, from the XVth century…or earlier. The song is a very old one, that speaks about a man who sees a woman washing her clothes by the river, and he sees her petticoat. She answers, that her "owner" asked her to make an "scapular" with a piece of her petticoat. Scapular are used in the catholic religion, the definition is: A small scapular must consist of two wool squares of cloth, connected by two strings (of any material), so that one segment rests on your chest and the other on your back.

English
Oh Rosa! Lower your leg
Because your petticoat peeks out!
Look at those who look at you
Their mouths are watering!
Look at those who look at you
Their mouths are watering!

Chorus
Look how clear
The water runs
Look how white
Your petticoat peeks out

As it peeks out
As it hides
But without you knowing
Not when, not where

As it hides
As it peeks out
As if it were
A white dove

Yesterday, washing in the river
Under the "pataguas" (trees)
You rolled up your dress
And your petticoat peeked out
You rolled up your dress
And your petticoat peeked out

My owner told me one day
When you go away, my little "negrita"
Make me a scapular
With the tip of your little petticoat
Make me a scapular
With the tip of your little petticoat


Spanish
¡Ay Rosa, baja la pierna
Que se te asoma la enagua!
¡Mira que a los que te miran
La boca se les hace agua!
¡Mira que a los que te miran
La boca se les hace agua!

Chorus
Mira que clarita
Va corriendo el agua
Mira que blanquita
Se asoma tu enagua

Como que se asoma
Como que se esconde
Pero sin que sepas
Ni cuándo, ni dónde

Como que se esconde
Como que se asoma
Como que si fuera
Una blanca paloma

Ayer lavando en el río
Debajo de las pataguas
Te arremangaste el vestido
Y se te asomó la enagua
Te arremangaste el vestido
Y se te asomó la enagua

Mi dueño me dijo un día
Cuando se vaya negrita
Hágame un escapulario
Con la punta 'e su enagüita
Hágame un escapulario
Con la punta 'e su enagüita

3 Easy Stretches (Explanation)

These 3 stretches come from Dr. Zimmerman at Yoga Expo. He recommended doing stretches every 20 minutes or so, especially for those who are sitting long periods at their desk.

  1. Raise both arms in air, palms facing each other. Pretend you are reaching up and grabbing one bar at a time. It's a very slight movement. 3 x's on each side.
  2. Hold your shoulders (or sides of arms) and bend to the right 3 x's and then left 3 x's. Keep your hips and base of your spine stable.
  3. Put your palms on your back and look up. 3x's.

He doesn't have a video of these 3 stretches but here's another one of his easy stretching videos and why stretching is important:

The alternate arm swing, rotational stretch is shown in this video by Dr. Pedram Shojai. (Around 15:34)

The last "3 Gate" stretch was shown by Dr. Yingqiu Wang (Founder and Professor of University of East-West Medicine).

  • Widen your arms, with one arm in front and one in the back, and twist to one side. The intent is to target lower back, middle back, and neck to "open the 3 gates" as you do these stretches. Then to other side.
