TAIWANESE Mandopop singer and Tourism Malaysia ambassador Johnny Chiang Yu Heng has opened a restaurant in Melaka serving food based on his own recipes.

China Press reported that Chiang hoped the move would help to promote the state as a destination for good food.

Chiang, who released his first album in 1984, said many Taiwanese singers would come to Malaysia and Singapore for promotional activities. It was on such a trip that he took a liking to the food, hospitality and Chinese culture here.

Chiang said he held a concert at a secondary school in Melaka more than 10 years ago.

“I have been to Melaka quite often these past three years.

“My daughter even celebrated her 21st birthday here on Aug 17 last year.

“I love the leisurely lifestyle here,” he said, adding that he had also invested in property in the state.

> Sing! China 2016 finalist Jeryl Lee Pei Ling will release a new song titled Say tomorrow, Sin Chew Daily reported.

She will also be performing at Malaysian singer-songwriter Eric Moo’s concert at the Subterranean Penang International Convention and Exhibition Arena in Relau this Saturday.

In a move to honour Moo, Lee even roped in Pink Tan to perform a medley of songs – hits by Moo back in the 1990s such as Tai Sha (Too Stupid), Ni Shi Wo de Wei Yi (You Are My Only One) and Shi Nian Shui (Thinking of Who), among others.
