I’m not much of a karaoke singer but I love singing (though some would call what I do yowling). There are two classics which inevitably come up sometime during the night. This was from my trip back to Sibu. The song is a Hokkien number called Ai Pia Jia Eh Ya (Gotta do the blood, sweat, tears thing to succeed).
I can’t read or write Chinese so I always struggle (except at the chorus). The song goes:
Something something something
Blah blah blah
30% is decided by fate, the other 70% is up to you
You’ve got to fight your way to success
The other number that tends to be rendered is a song called “Friends”. This is usually belted out with much camaraderie and a lot of arms around each other’s shoulders. ;)
