Karaoke midget*

Karaoke midget*, originally uploaded by sangsara.

I was having lunch at a hawker centre and heard some (pretty awful, I’m sorry to say) Chinese singing, but couldn’t figure out where it was coming from. A little while later, this guy comes from around the corner pushing a karaoke machine on a trolley and singing into a microphone. The fact that he was a midget just made the whole thing more surreal.

He was also rocking a single rolled-up pant leg, which disappointed me greatly because real gangstas don’t sing Chinese love songs.

*I don’t know if midget is an acceptable word, although it’s the one I was brought up with. Someone suggested dwarf, which to me sounds even more derogatory.
