Bloggers' Night Karaoke KTV Session

lim peh ka li kong

Last night, we had our bloggers' night karaoke KTV organised by Qin Shi Huang at the Toa Payoh SAFRA Club from 7 pm to 2 am.

The 5 confirmed showing their faces were Qin Shi Huang, Ipromise, Xorpheus, Monkichi and Old Beng me but 2 other persons also turn up - Xishi and my cha-bo-lang which made a total of 7 persons singing all night long.

Monkichi; Qin Shi Huang; Xorpheus; Xishi; Old Beng; Cha-bo-lang (left to right)

Monkichi; Qin Shi Huang; Ipromise; Xishi; Old Beng; Cha-bo-lang (left to right)

The ealiest bird was Ipromise followed by Old Beng and cha-bo-lang. As usual emperor was late (Piang, organisor also late BUT I already got used to it) Anyway the first half an hour was all to the 3 of us.

All of us showed our singing skills and of course there were some very good ones, wa-piang like listening to CD, especially Xishi, no horse run. If Xishi were the Karaoke Queen, then the title of Karaoke King that night was none other then Ipromise.

The worst singer was * ... drum-roll... * Old Beng me. Ha ha! Actually quite pity the others to have to endure my torturing of my singing. Think I can be part-time torturing terrorists with my singing at their ears.

My singing condition was bad due to the following reasons:-

1) My coughing still persist and my throat was really not suitable to sing; (But you know, everybody had to pay so if no sing, then lugi one so bo-bian must sing at least a few songs la)

2) The last time me and my cha-bo-lang went for Karaoke session was 3 years ago thus without practice our singing skills, if any, already rusty. (Horrible singing plus coughing halfway also don't care la, anyway they were the ones being tortured, not me :p)

3) A bit too shy to sing in front of the Karaoke Queen and King;

There were a few climaxes during our session which I must share with you:-

1) A mini-concert was performed by Monkichi with her tribute to Teresa Teng 邓丽君. Monkichi really sang like Teresa Teng.

2) Old Beng sang but forgot to bring his ladder cos he couldn't reach the high note without the ladder and eventually his voice broke and sang out of tune and 走音 until reached JB.

3) Xorpheus and Qin did some songs on BeeGees and man, really good until Old Beng me started to join in to sing "Tragedy". It was really a tragedy to all until Xishi the queen could not take it anymore and puke. To protest, she showed us her "No Eyes See" posture.

4) Old Beng and cha-bo-lang also did a few Duets and me sang badly but luckily my cha-bo-lang sang well and think probably the others knew that if they were to criticise my singing, I will show them my tiger and eagle so nobody dared to even show their slightest discontentment when we sang. Happy couples cos nobody dared not to applause.

5) Ipromise and my cha-bo-lang sang "Endless Love" and my oh my, they duet better than me leh. (No photo cos they scared I see already angry, but no la me where got angry just because of 1 LOVE song?) Actually while they were singing, me took the opportunity to go and sit between 2 pretty girl girl - Monkichi and Xishi. 6) Old Beng, think I was a bit drunk, started to dance when a few fast number songs were sung and how do I fare? Think my dancing was better than my singing and my blogging. (No photo was taken cos everyone was laughing so badly and could not possibly take photo with shaking hands)

Last but not least, here are some of the great photos.

The Four heavenly kings 四大天王 (Xorpheus, Ipromise, Qin Shi Huang and Old Beng)
The Charlie's Angels or Power Puff Girls? (Monkichi, Xishi and Cha-bo-lang) Sorry, no photo for this one.

Beauty and the beast (Old Beng and Xishi)
Old man and Young man (Old Beng and Xorpheus)

Karaoke Queen (Xishi)
Karaoke King (Ipromise)
Xorpheus singing
Emperor choosing songs (Qin Shi Huang)
Monkichi and Xishi - the best Duets in Town.
Following credits must be given to the following persons:-

Qin Shi Huang : For his great effort for organising the Karaoke night. We really enjoyed ourselves, kam siah brother.

Xishi : Melodious voice and good singing entertainment from her with the different types of songs she sang (Faye Wong 王菲,Jay Chou 周杰伦,Duet with Monkichi singing the male's portion)

Ipromise : Good manly voice and sang a variety of English, Mandarin , Cantonese songs. Credit definitely must go to his last song "Tonight will you come - 今夜你会不会来" which he dedicated to each and everyone.

Xorpheus : Jovial guy who sang nice songs and dared to duet with Old Beng me. And most importantly, he was our camera man.

Monkichi : English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien songs all sang by her. A real talented Karaoke singer.

Cha-bo-lang : Duet with Old Beng me and brought back the good old memories which we had.

After our Karaoke session last night, Xorpheus announced to arrange for the next Bloggers' gathering and no, don't worry, all are spared from my singing and we have decided without any objection to go for bowling instead. Good choice cos you will not be tortured by Old Beng's singing again.

    Wow..Mr.Lim..,luckily I didn't turn up. My voice will beat you down flatly..and scare all patrons least you guys are still welcome over there for the time being.. :D

    Beng, you are probably one of the most humble guy I know. I honestly think you sang better than any of us guys. And you also have some very good dance moves, although some of them are a little outdated. Like Qin said, you are qualified to sing at next year’s 7th month ‘song stage’.

    Qin, thanks for organizing it. The place is much better than I had expected.

    Cha Bo Lang, XiShi, Monkichi and Xorpheus, very nice meeting you and look forward to see you again.

    Don’t know about you guys but I had a really good time. I had quite a few drinks and can’t really remember if I made a fool of myself during my ‘climax’ song. I only remember after I went home, I waited, and waited but nobody came. Guess I'll have try again tonite.

    We have had four jugs and five glasses of beer, considered a drinking session too for the five of us who drank to our heart's content.

    Next time I will bring along wine, soley to make sure Old Beng and cha bo lang drink.

    As usual, my lateness was due to the many reasons. This time, it was Xorpheus and I were drinking in the hawker centre before meeting up with all of you.

    I am looking forward to the next gathering. Ling, will you be joining us?

    Thanks for your consideration console but you are the Karaoke King not me. A-Go-Go is indeed outdated but glad that my dance brought laughters to all.

    Don't think I completely blogged on the event, please post something in your blog too. Same goes to Xorpheus, Qin and Monkichi.

    Next round no more karaoke as all of them all scared by my voice. We are planning to go bowling.

    All who missed our gathering, please try to come the next time. Movie can be watched another day :)

  • At Sunday, November 13, 2005 6:25:00 PM , Blogger ipromise said...

    That's right. We are going from KTV to Bowling. In other words, from 'mikes' to balls.

    Xishi, hope you got your money's worth from the entertainment. I'm actually a quiet and reserved person. One of the guys must have spiked my drink last nite.

    LingLing, hope to see you at our next gathering. Were you at the range or on the course today? Oil

    Your Cha Bo Lang can sing very well too! Don't forget to bring her along next time!

    Btw, you and ipromise missed out the highlight of the night when 'somebody' asked another 'body' to 脱掉 during a game of Chor Dai Dee.

    Guess, Qin and i really scare everyone out when we brought out our cameras....kekeke
    Oh ya the "Tragedy" song. I think we did it together very well leh. Don't you think so...

  • At Monday, November 14, 2005 1:50:00 PM , Blogger old beng said...

    Ha ha from mike to balls. So next one either to golfing or pooling then from mike to balls to holes, WAHAHAHAHA.

    Huh! So happening ah? 脱掉, I guess must be Xorpheus kena by Qin since Qin is a better gambler.

    Next round of gathering care to join us too?

    Since I already mentioned to upload the photo, so must keep my words la. Yes I think we duet quite well but too bad Xishi "no eyes see" and puke.

    White wine, red wine or champagne up to you to request, so long you turn up.

    Old Beng,

    How would an emperor ask a guy to strip?

    Here it goes, an old aunty lost two games, but she subsequently replaced it with a plate of fruits. She knew too well that if she strips, all of us would run out of the room.

    I Promise,

    You are indeed entertaining us. Thanks.
    Another highlight would be the seating arrangement. For future gathering, whoever is organising it, pl ensure Ipromise has the best seat.

    Beng, I prefer golf to pool. Pool only has 6 holes.

    Good job, Beng. I especially like the one of you, taken with Monkichi and XiShi. It looks so much like you.

    There are 2 types of bloggers: 1 who shows his/her face openly and the other does not want to show his/her face.

    I will face life-threatening situation if I were to show the faces. Guess the only way to see all our faces is to join us in our bloggers' outing.

    Next time you be the Hello Kitty, the cat with no mouth.

    Per their request and my promise, no face will be shown here, join us the next outing and you can surely see our faces. :)

    Understand your situation brother, know you so long time, don't worry, at least pictures without faces are just fine, are you doing a face off like John n Nick? I don't think you 'kiam ah long' too much, do you?

    How's your figure? I reckon you must be very proud of your own body.

    What is done cannot be undone. You show yours in your blog, ok?

    Hello daphne,
    How's your school holidays?

    Yeah I agree with you that it is indeed a pity to show photos without faces but I had promised to block their faces before I upload the photo. I cannot break my promise.

    If you really want to see us, maybe you can join us in our next outing cos we don't wear masks. (Please, you have to seek your parent's approval before meeting with any stranger, ok? You can invite your mum along too)

    Don't know why but I have this funny feeling that you are not an eleven-year-old girl after all.

    You like pool?

    There is another way of playing. I learned it many many years ago, and called it Sticker. There are few sticks placed at the side of the table whereby must try to bring the sticks down to score more points.

  • At Friday, November 18, 2005 9:36:00 AM , Blogger old beng said...

    Dear all
    How´s Dandan´s suggestion? To be honest, I can´t play billard at all, all my life probably played less than 5 times but I am ok to tack along if there´s a billard game.

  • At Friday, November 18, 2005 11:11:00 AM , Blogger old beng said...

    Another suggestion I can think of is to have a High tea/Lunch and to follow by activity of Bowling, SPA, Billards, KTV etc;

    You may join whichever group activity you wish but most importantly there is the makan session whereby all can sit together and talk.

  • At Friday, November 18, 2005 3:36:00 PM , Blogger 孺子牛 said...

    Old Beng,

    This time round you organise.
    Whether it is lunch, dinner, supper, breakfast, high tea, KTV, SPA, bowling, billiard, pool, swimming pool or pocket billiard, I am fine with it.

    Hi Beng, this is Ipromise.
    How have you been?
    I was surfing and decided to look up some of the people who have crossed(as in-passed thru and not getting me crossed) my life's path.
    Its fun and interesting to read some of your blogs(esp those which involves me). BTW, do you know that the SAFRA TP that we went, have been replaced?
    Look forward to see you again someday.
    Best wishes and regards to you & your missus (aka Cha Bor Lang)
