I Say It Again: Langga Lamu Does Not Need To Take Part In Singing Contests!

When you sing a poem like how you sing rap, folk, pop or a rock number, you might as well not bother to sing a poem.

The 'Sing A Poem' contest is turning out to be a farce - nothing but just another one of the numerous singing contests taking place all over Mainland China.

Only, it pretends to be more.

Sing a poem? Really?

The contestants are all singing as if they are taking part in contemporary singing contests.

As far as I am concerned, only Lamu was trying to sing a poem.

Yet, perversely - or was it predictably? - she got eliminated!


I have said it before, and I say it again, Langga Lamu should not waste her time and talent taking part in any more singing contests. It is sad and demoralising to see her losing out each time to others whose voices will soon be forgotten, anyway.

The taste these days is for the loud and brash - as long as you can rasp louder or croak better or rock more crazily than the others, you are fine - just stretch your voice hoarse and do daft things with it.

If you try to sing, you lose out.

Were Teresa Deng alive and she were herself to take part in today's singing dos, she would also not go far!

Lamu is not Teresa Deng even though she has a voice like her idol's. And we must thank the divine for that.

With the voice, talent and poise she has though, Langga Lamu should strike out on her own and carve a niche for herself. She can, of course, continue to sing her idol's songs and keep alive Teresa Deng's legacy.

But not waste her time and talent participating in any more singing contests.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
