Sung by Singaporean Getai Divas the Ming Zhu Sisters, this song, 12 Lotus Flowers is about 12 girls who led miserable lives. They were either abused by their stepmothers, forced to work long hours everyday, some ending up in brothels and so on and so forth. Hokkien songs tend to be rather tragic despite their very upbeat tempos! Strange , not?
Here’s another song often sung at Getais!
Have loads of fun,
