On a lighter note!

A couple of days ago we went to the National Museum of Culture. Whilst this was interesting to the same degree that any museum visit is interesting, across the road was the Culture Centre with a big banner outside announcing the Pepsi Singing Contest 2012. Much as we would have liked to have taken part, we were told that this was the final and the competitors were already in place

Song choices covered current Laos hits and a few brave souls took on songs by Adele, Rhianna and Lady GaGa. The audience were wildly enthusiastic about every song and several of the performers were given bouquets of flowers and paper garlands, although these were probably from family members and best friends as it soon became clear that there was no correlation between the quality of singing and the number of presents received!

Sadly we had to leave before the end so we don’t know who won, but all I can say is watch out Simon Cowell the Laotians are coming!
