I'm no Susan Boyle

Contrary to popular believe, I love singing. But it doesn’t always come across as such because I loathe karaoke. I don’t get why people huddle into a small room together with very limited light and be happy about singing off-tune, off-beat and the likes. So, unless that person is really good with the mic, I can hardly fathom why people are so enchanted with the silent orchestra

Oh, yes… I can see people shooting me dagger looks right now. Ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch! This is just my personal opinion, of course! You’re entitled to think otherwise.Hehe.

Thing is, not matter how much I try to warm up to the idea, I can never really wrap the idea around my head. Especially when it comes to my knowledge that the people with who I will be “karaoke-ing” with are complete strangers. I mean, you can ask the Kesayangans how many times they have heard me sing at a karaoke and they will tell you, “Once”.So, at the mention of "strangers", I'd straightaway give a No!

Well, at least I tried.

Actually, more than anything, I think I am jealous of people who can so confidently sing in front of crowds. Even when they KNOW that they don’t even sound remotely close to ________________ (name of worst sounding artist) (well, I don’t want to name names here, so you fill in the blank yourselves, okay!)

How do you guys/girls stand the sound of the echo of your own tak sedap voices?

I can never be brave enough to do it.

But give me a steering wheel and some of my favourite tunes to go, you’ll see me singing like there’s no tomorrow. Seriously. You’ll see for yourself if you ever bump into me on the road ;)

Kalau ever nampak, jangan tegur! That’s my version of karaoke, you know ;)

that one time ;)

Shy to comment? Well, never mind! Your reactions mean the world to me! Make me smile today :)
