Shame on you

Hi!

This is a part of Shakira's song "Me enamore":

Pray (Voy pal cielo y voy pateando)

1- I've searched everywhere for the meaning of "pal" in Spanish but didn't find it!
2- Voy Pateando, means literally "go kicking" but apparently it has something to do with happiness. Can you explain it?
3- What is the figurative speech achieved by this sentense?

Bing Crosby Records "White Christmas," Best-Selling Single of All Time (1942)

Composed by legendary songwriter Irving Berlin, "White Christmas" has been recorded by numerous singers. By far, the best known version is performed by Crosby. However, it is not his 1942 recording that American audiences hear endlessly during Christmastime, but rather the re-recording he made in 1947. The song was further popularized by the film of the same name—starring Crosby—released in 1954. How many copies is Crosby's "White Christmas" single estimated to have sold worldwide? More...

This is a conversation between a prostitute and a man in Mexico. The word moma was italicized, so I know for a fact that it's Spanish. The problem is I can't find any translation for this word. Could anyone help me out please?[/quiteSick ]

Regarding the word "Don", it's just a title that can be translated to "Mr." in English. In this case, it would be equivalent to say, "Mr. Rafael Contreras y Galbo".

The letter "Y" used to join last names in Spanish is just a matter of style. Some centuries ago, some famous Spanish writers like Félix Lope de Vega y Carpio or Miguel de Cervantes y Saavedra had their names that way. It is supposed that their names were originally written this way,

Félix Lope de Vega de Carpio
Miguel de Cervantes de Saavedra

In order to avoid cacophony, the word "de" was dropped and then the letter "Y" was used instead. So, probably the person's name on the tombstone was written "DON RAFAEL CONTRERAS DE GALBO", the same way the people just to do it in Spain centuries ago.

Unfortunately, the link from where I got the information is in Spanish, but I'll leave it here for reference.

Buddhas of Bamyan

Once the largest examples of standing Buddha carvings in the world, the Buddhas of Bamyan were two monumental statues carved into the side of a cliff in Afghanistan's Bamyan Valley. Built during the 6th century, the statues were destroyed in 2001 by the Islamist Taliban government, which decreed that the figures were idolatrous and bombarded them with dynamite and tank barrages for nearly a month. The Afghan government has since proposed that the statues be recreated using what technologies? More...
