On the hot Sunday afternoon of 21 June, a group of 38 KTV goers aged between 13 to 50 years head down for a Karaoke session at nostalgic Katong Shopping Centre. This KTV was chosen for its lowest in town pricing. “Tze Char” cuisines can also be ordered in, needless to say there was a great time of fellowship which comes with great food, great songs by our friends-turned-singers.
Why organize Karaoke? It all started during the planning of an engagement and integration of our new friends when one enthusiastic cell group leader suggested organizing Don’t Forget the Lyrics competition. However, in reality, all of us will probably be the winner of Forget the Lyrics instead. So, before we qualify ourselves for Don’t Forget the Lyrics, let’s familiarize ourselves with the lyrics with a Karaoke session! What was planned to be a singing session turned out to be an opportunity for us to bless each other generously by volunteering to place orders and pick up the tabs for the sizzling hot chicken wings, Hor-Fun, Kopi-O and more yummy stuff…
From the songs our friends sang, we also got to know each other at a deeper level especially, from Canto Pop to Evergreen Singers to R & B and rappers and of course, the era they are born in.
We also discovered that there are 4 Archetype of KTV Goers.
Type 1: Hoard the Mic Singers
Type 2: Pass the Mic cum MTV watchers
Type 3: Singing without the Mic (Backup Vocalists)
Type 4: Singer Wanna Be (Style, Dressing, Looks)

Which type are you? Regardless of which type they are, AS Zone had an exhilarating and high time singing like S.H.E, F.I.R, Jay Chou, Teresa Teng etc… and top of the list is still the angelic song, ‘Tong Hua’ (童话). So, AS Zone, are you ready for Don’t Forget the Lyrics?
