Karaoke at the ASOCIO ICT Summit Gala Dinner
When we were told that each country will have to sing a song during a karaoke session at the ASOCIO Gala Dinner in Hong Kong, I was wondering what to do since I was the only delegate from Pakistan this year because the event was clashing with Eid ul Azha – I was in a state of panic to say the least since the only time I dare to sing is when I am alone in the car driving and singing along to whatever music I have playing on my CD player. Thank God for the Australians who came to my rescue – thanks Kelly, Lisa and Ian. We formed a group comprising of Australia, New Zealand and Pakistan. Here you see us performing “Stand by Me” – gosh we were bad, although it was so late in the evening that no-one else thought so 🙂 And you must admit we do look as if we had fun.
In sharp contrast you had Lucas Lim, the Secretary General of ASOCIO (on the right in this photo). He is such a good singer that he could choose singing as a profession if ASOCIO ever fired him, or if he decided he had had enough of dealing with the likes of us 🙂
The Japanese enjoy their Karaoke. They even had one person on their team who danced around while the others sang.
The Singaporean team put on a great performance too. All in all, everyone enjoyed themselves and left with fond memories of the great time they had in Hong Kong.
