Over 24% of the population in Malaysia is Chinese, and that itself (a total of almost 6.9 million) is more than the entire population of Singapore. Needless to say, with the majority of Chinese in Taiwan, Singapore and China, it is inevitable that should one need to enter the Chinese entertainment business, he or she will be more recognized overseas. And with some people thinking that any Chinese is from China, some people might not know that a well-known singer like Gary Cao is from Malaysia.

Here is a list of celebrities who have made it big overseas—so big that they might have sent this message to the world: “Hey, Malaysia got Chinese one, okay! 几够力一下~”

Gary Cao
Kota Belud, Sabah

Commonly known as 曹格, at least one of his songs will be selected during a KTV session. His version of “Superwoman” is so popular that some of us did not know that it was the Mandarin version of a number 1 hit by Karyn…who?

Michelle Yeoh
Ipoh, Perak

Michelle Yeoh is undoubtedly one of the most successful and celebrated actresses to emerge from Malaysia. Holding the title of Tan Sri (if you don’t understand what it means, let’s just say that it’s a very honourable title to hold in Malaysia), she has acted in both Hong Kong and Hollywood movies. In other words, yes, she put Malaysia on the world map.

Michael Wong
Ipoh, Perak

Fondly known as 光良, this baby-face singer’s 童話 send girls crying upon hearing it and guys looking away while singing it. And after that, his  約定 told us that lyrics in songs need not be poetic to make a grown man tear—it just needs to be so damn sincere.

Fish Leong
Bahau, Negeri Sembilan

Known more as 梁静茹, her 勇氣 and 分手快樂 are two songs that any female who go for a KTV session would definitely choose (and insert). And they’re also the songs that many males would avoid, for singing 分手快樂 usually means bad news.

Penny Tai (戴佩妮)
Johor Bahru, Johor

Recently married, her popularity went international when she sang the end theme song for Meteor Garden, 你要的愛. Anything related to Meteor Garden became gold and so, Penny Tai became one and is still one.

James Wan
Kuching, Sarawak

Don’t know who he is? It’s okay, because he’s not on screen but behind the screen, so you’ve watched his movies before. He’s the creator of the horror movie franchise Saw and the director of the first movie. If you’ve thought that it’s an Australian who created Saw, you’re right as well: He’s now an Australian. From a city of cats to a country of kangaroos—that must be a big jump.
