The surgeon was from the band, The Flamingos.The Indian Malaysian is good at oldies and country songs.

The one at the mic is the late Tan Swee Leong, Lena Lim and Anita Sarawak were among the group. The one who passed away is Rita Chao?

Thanks Stephen for your lightning flash response. You are right in most of the answers. Let's wait for others before the answers are revealed. :-)

We're closer to home base. Thank you both for the interest. Wow you know your stuff Fred. You must be referring to Ronny See, the black and white photo?

Thanks Brother Andy..these are some of my favourite Malay Singers which I idolised during my teens years. They are good, too many to name. Have a good day.


Fred Ching Two Malay singers of English oldies were Rahim Hamid who is known as the Nat King Cole of Singapore and the jazz style Ahmed Daud, Julie Sudiro was also good.


This one is tougher but I'll give it a shot. I think I see Rita Chao, Veronica Young, Tan Swee Leong, Peter Chua, Anita Sarawak, Kamahl and Rex Goh.

I'm trying to figure out who the first pic is. Looks like Teresa Teng but then she's not from HKG and I don't recall her singing a well known prayer. The only local singer I can recall who sang a prayer was Susan Lim but that photo doesn't look like her.

Thank you guys. What I truly appreciate is interest in the quiz. It's been years since there was a quiz on the blog and this one is the first with Asian celebrities. I think all the names are there except one. So let's give it till tonight or tomorrow. Again thanks for taking precious time off.

I think Facebook postings easily create interesting chats that warm up to the subject or quiz, etc. It's a pity we can't do it on Blogspot. A bit more troublesome I guess.


I don't think Veronica Young is in the line up.The last guy could be Ismail Haron. The girl in the first picture is Esther. Peter Chua could be in the middle line.

I give another shot..1 Elisa Chan..3 Rita Chao..4 Lena Lim..5 Tan Swee Leong..6 Ronnie See (thanks Brother for the earlier clue) 7 Anita Sarawak..8 Kamahl..9 Winston Koh.😁


If the one who passed away is not Rita then I think it's Susan Lim. If it's is not Osman then it's Vernon Cornelius.
