lim peh ka li kong

Those of you who know Old Beng will know that he "has" 12 children, the eldest one 小马哥 already 17 years old liao and the youngest one only 3 years old.

One night during dinner, one of Old Beng´s sons, 小明仔 a 13-year-old Secondary 1 student suddenly announced that he would like to participate in the Campus Superstar 校园 Superstar next year.

"Kor, you want to be like Shawn Tok ah?" one of his sister 小白兔 asked.

In case you did not watch the TV telecast on the 校园 Superstar last Saturday, Shawn Tok, a 13-year-old Secondary one boy, was the overall Champion of the Singing competition.

"Yes, I think I can sing as well as Shawn" 小明仔 replied his sister with a smile.

Their eldest brother 小马哥 saw that Old Beng´s face was rather black when he heard what 小明仔 said about his intention to join the 校园 Superstar, said, "小明仔, you are too young to make such decision, you need to seek the approval from Pa first."

小明仔 turned and look at Old Beng and asked, "Pa, I am thinking of joining the 校园 Superstar next year, what do you think?"

To be honest, although me do not really like the idea of the way they throne the 歌王 or 歌后, that is by voting through phone calls and sms-ing, but this is only a kind of Marketing programme, a very successful one, I must say.

I am alright with Singapore Idol, Superstar, Superband, Live The Dream etc BUT lim peh is totally against 校园 Superstar.

Lim peh´s old fashioned mind always believes that a student´s role is to study and not thinking and wanting to be a star 发明星梦 or 歌星梦.

Watching the students singing and dancing and dressing up like a star is something lim peh cannot bear. Students are sometimes too young to understand their roles but what puzzled me is that their parents supported them into taking part of the contest.

How about the Teachers and Principals of the students? So supportive, so proud of their students who got into the final? Lim peh see already also buay tahan.

This is just not right!

Then best of all, the news of the contestants, who and who are an item la, who has a steady girlfriend/boyfriend la etc. Students are supposed to concentrate in their studies la and not these nonsense relationship.

Call me old fashioned uncle 老古董, I am 100% against 校园 Superstar.

Therfore, Old Beng´s little 小明仔 will be concentrating in his studies and will not be taking part in the 校园 Superstar.

Those of you who want to support him by voting for him, I will be more than happy if you can just donate the cash to lim peh.

Hmmm, maybe lim peh should go for the Live The Dream and my beloved readers can help me to fulfill lim peh´s 明星梦 by voting me all the way to Championship. Lim peh no longer a student la.

lim peh kong wan liao

    i've never even watched a single episode of 校园Superstar *yawn*. The good thing about Live The Dream is middle-aged people also can take part :) This actually opens the floodgates for many middle-aged gems who can sing well to show off their singing abilities and talent :)

    The singing standards of Live the Dream are higher than that Singapore Idol which is limited for the young ones to take part.

    Hmmm, most probably will be "10 Little Indian Boys" or "客人来"

    Yes, agree with you, it gives uncles and aunties a chance to be a star.

    oldbeng I want said something to those that asked you really have 12 children, ha ha ha don't suspect, NO OFFENCE to your cha bo lang, oldbeng think you can, 12 he think you're mother PIG!
    Not that oldbeng disapprove his son to join what ever superstar, the reason is only the young one show off and he got no part in it, BUAY SONG mah, and everytime one take part, all go support, think about the cab fee, titbit la. drink la, etc. etc. he where can tahan, right beng

    Hmm I think it's the first time I'm leaving a more serious comment.

    To each his/her own ba, Lao Beng. I guess for some of these families... maybe their children really cannot study? And their real interest is in performing... then for these families maybe this would be the only way their parents can show their love and support for their child but letting them go and compete.

    For your son, I'm sure Lao Beng such an understanding and hip daddy would have explained to him. What you say is true too and that as long as Ah boy understands your stand in this matter... :) Then all's well ends well. :) So in the future we'll be seeing him on stage? (after his studies of cos...)

    *phew* hengz ah, so not real got 12 children lah or else CNY give ang pow give ka siao kekekeke *runs & hide*

    imhom letting kids joining these contests is ok as long as they are in the right mindset. besides, giving them real life opportunities to showcase their talents, they helps to build their confidence.

    however, if their frame of mind is only on fame & making more money, then it's better not for them to participate liao

    2cents ....

    是的,以钱买个 “星” 梦。

    Lau Hero
    Money is small matter la but lim peh still against students joining such programmes.

    Whatever his interest is, basic education must be fulfilled, go for his dream after his studies, me still think so :)
