Pun of the day:
If you can’t find anyone to sing with, you have to duet yourself.
One year later, i discovered another 10 sins.
I can’t sing well but i love Karaoke. Red Box and Neway are just like the American Idol stage for tone deafs to indulge themselves in a delusion to stardom.
BUT! Have you come across people so annoying when singing in Karaoke you just wanna strangle them to death? Please ensure that you don’t commit any of the below before you ask your friends to go sing your lungs out.
1. Be there too early
Surprisingly, being late is acceptable when it comes to Karaoke-ing. People just lurrrrrrrve to sing more! But! If your friend booked 7pm, don’t go and get the room at 6pm. You eat, you sing first. Them come late, they sing less, they tulan!
2. Go out without closing the door
Don’t you just hate people who go out (to toilet or whatever) and leave the door open? You don’t wanna be disturbed by any external noise while singing, let alone get up and close the door! (Go to Neway if you don’t want this to happen. They have attached toilets and auto-close doors.)
3. Select too many songs
They keep selecting songs they want ( or “maybe want”, or just select for fun) until it goes up to 3 pages! Other people no need to sing ah?!?
4. Keep hogging the remote
Some people just like to get hold of the power to remotely control the screen even though they don’t SING. The most annoying kind—They actually sing. And while singing, they hold on to the mic tightly with one hand, and remote in another hand!!! Future dictator!
5. Keep inserting songs
10 people singing. Finally your song comes next, but some cheese-ass cuts queue! He/She jumped his/her own song just when the current person sings the last note. He/she sings 10 songs. You sing one song.
6. Be VERY LOUD
When they’re talking/laughing, THEY ARE CAPITAL LETTERS LOUD. Some people even play games (most irritating being those drinking cai-mui games) so loudly you can’t hear yourself sing. TOTALLY POTONG STEAM!
7. Karaoke Bully
Force people who don’t wanna sing to sing. So what if i don’t want to sing? I hate singing (i came here just because i give face and wanna have fun), you don’t need to shove the mic into my face and act like waiting to watch a stunt.
What’s worse—this kind of people also act like a vocal teacher, telling you which note should be higher! And sing with you during the chorus. Leave us alone! SUPER DUPER MEGA ULTRA A.N.N.O.Y.I.N.G.
8. Sing with vocal audio
They’re often the victims of Karaoke Bully. Ok, being lousy in singing is not a sin. BUT! Some people are just so cow. They sing with the singer’s audio on, and sing very, very, verrrrrrry softly as if he/she is lip-synching.
9. Sing too well
Well, not exactly a sin. But you know, people get jealous. If you sing like an angel, they will think that you’re here to insult the weaker ones. They will just shut themselves up, turn into silent mode and vibrate.
10. Sing songs i hate
Only applies to karaoke-ing with Cheesie. The sinners are often innocent. Personal preference ok! If you wanna go singing with me, remember, PLEASEEEEEEEE, don’t sing
1. 劲歌金曲–Can it get any longer? Cut it out!
2.黄昏–It’s hideously depressing. It gives me headache.
3.爱与诚—Go be a dog be a cat la! Haiyo. Freaking cliched song.
4.对面的女孩看过来—*vomits and dies*
How many Karaoke sins have you committed?
11. Showing a very boh song face there when people are singing. If you are good, then go to sing at SuperStar~!!!
hhahaahaha.. agree!! 劲歌金曲– 10 mins long!! wahahaha…

I only know the han yu pin yin for
1. 劲歌金曲–jin ge jin qu
4.对面的女孩看过来—dui mian de nu(nv) hai kan guo lai
Very very true! How to let those ‘karaoke’ kaki know abt these sins?? One thing is that when its your turn to sing, your friends starts chatting LOUDLY like its nobody’s business…truly annoying & no respect at all.
hi pixxy. those four songs are:
1. geng go gam kok (cantonese) by Leo Ku
2. huang huen by Zhang Dong Liang / (original singer forgot his name..hehe)
3. ngoi yu seng (cantonese) by Leo Ku
4. dui mian de nv hai kan guo lai by Ah Niu
hey cheesie, got ppl commit sin #8 wan meh? then must sync the lip till chun chun onli can..haha.
pixxy: the 1st song is ‘Geng gor gam kok’ by Leo Ku,the 2nd one is ‘huang hun’ by Zhou Chuan Xiong,the 3rd song is also by Leo Ku,’Oi yu seng’.Then the last one is ‘dui mian de nu hai kan guo lai’. 🙂
爱与诚 is 1 of my favt~!! and I wont be marrying you afterall. *pout*
my friends commit all the sin…..All the songs they sure sing if they go K….
劲歌金曲 IS LOL.
Yes. Those people make me wanna stab them with the complimentary stalk of celery.
劲歌金曲 should be the last song for the karaoke session… so that you can have that extra 10 minutes~! Not a sin~ Muahaha
I have never done karaoke. I am sinless 🙂
haiyo like tat no need to sing with Cheesie oledi 😀 opps!
Ohh. I don’t sing chinese, neither do I read chinese. 😛
Though I am chinese.
But hey, is true that when someone shove the damned microphone to you and yet you still insists not to sing at all, it is so shitty annoying.
The worst of all, that ass come and give you free vocal lessons how to sing. wtf.
Is the other girl in pink Melissa Tan?
yea,the 劲歌金曲 should always put at the last to get back your worth!And I saw lotsa Ayumi;s songs selected in one of da pic…u like Ayu?
1! and a major sin.
that is “never go karaoke!”
my sin: to have too many a drink while karaoke-ing; to dance to those dancing-songs; to dance on the table to those super-dancing song…
i miss those karaoke-day in KL with my friends. London only have it in restaurant…
Oo. I saw RISING SUN. x3!
By BSK/TVXQ right? ^^
I love them! And I saw Blue Bird ~ I lovelovelove that song ^_^.
Woohoo. I am sinless. xD. Never done karaoke before. ):
.对面的女孩看过来 ~ whats wrong with this song, oh u hate my baby, woowoowoooo*sobz*
Die lor .. I sing Huang Hun occasionally in karaoke … must annoy the hell out of a lot of ppl!
Funny! I blog about the same thing last year!
All i know is when i’m there, the English selection is too young for me… 🙁
I hate the first song. Reason being I’m not chinese educated. So, I can’t sing that song and have to wait for blardee 10 donkey minutes listening to that song. Worse still if they purposely pick that song at the eleventh hour so that they can sing it till the karaoke ppl stops the system. No fair! They get the last song!! =(
Aiyah! One of my pet hates! Karaoke!
Those are nice ones! So “Original” thoughts of yours!
#9 if u good then how? purposely sound bad meh? heh
Yeah I really hate #6
ah…i just noticed i’m quite a bully myself. i would prefer people to sing at least one song of their choice throughout the session.
i mean…come on, u come to karaoke n dont want to sing? well…sing at least one song n u walk out a happy person after the session. make your trip to karaoke worth the singing while. lol.
giving face is 1 thing…n singing might just give u a little bit more fun than just sitting around. anyway tats just my view.
lolx wow amazing.. out of the four songs u hate, when i go karaoke with my friends, we usually sing three of them.. huang hun is out cos it’s such a SIEN song.. but Ging go gam kok is like a MUST..
I got a mic here for you to sing cheesie 😀
i love your post, but wat happened to fondue house in hartamas????!!! i missed tat cheese fondue, and the shop is not there any longer….. any idea?
I miss Ringo. 🙁
Okay, this may sound weird, but I have this insane tendency to randomly stumble on websites that have nothing to do with my original intentions when I am using search engines, or even when I just mistype an address on the address bar… so your site was one of those stumbled upon websites. xD I thoroughly enjoyed everything I read on your site. You have a very unique personality. Since I wasn’t sure if you had a guestbook, I just decided to comment on your latest entry. 🙂 I will be back! 😮
Fwa Gra: You can cheese me HERE. 😀
i agree with you with all the above sins, except the last 2 sins. people around know i can sing quite well (man!! self-praising make me feel so uncomfortable, but then again, its quite syok, haha…). to me, its a disrespect to that particular song if i can’t get, say 90% of the notes right & make the song feel yuckish, of course, this only apply to me & i won’t force this onto others… in order to avoid all those sins to be committed by anyone, i only go with those i know well & set ground rules like remote circulation, shut up when people sing & don’t want your voice to come out, cutting que strictly forbidden & that sortta thing, if of course, i need to pay my share on that k-session… if i don’t need to pay, they can do just whatever & i’ll eat my stuff, or maybe dozz off…
I think I have the sins no3. and no.9.
you should take vocal lessons if there is a need for you to sound like Taylor Swift or Josh Groban *”~
