Karaoke Party!

You can’t live in China long without eventually finding yourself at a karaoke party. It was my first time, Jessica’s second. The place was huge; several floors of karaoke rooms to which “swanky” can’t even begin to do justice. Apparently they chose this particular place because it’s known for its nice rooms and good speakers, rather than its pretty girls and additional services. Chuck and Kristi had to open with Hotel California, and before we were done we’d made it through Can You Feel the Love Tonight, Somewhere Out There, Every Thing I Do (I Do it for You), Eternal Flame, some Simon and Garfunkel, and I can’t even remember what else. It was actually more fun than I imagined it would be.

A Party Secretary at Tianjin University, who is really supportive of the Bright Future project, threw a karaoke party for the teachers and students from this semester’s Bright Future class. Officially, it was to honour Chuck, who’s worked as the Bright Future intern the last several months. Click the photos to see them full size, mouseover for people’s names.

If only they had a Disney music section…
