Music Star

There’s an abandoned whiff about the Galaxy Ampang mall, but there’s Music Star as a redeeming factor. Hourly afternoon k-deals at this karaoke by the parking lot go for RM14 per room, which means you pay less than five ringgit if you go in a group of three. Plus, they have good snacks (there’s something about having Cheezels and karaoke-ing at the same time) and soft drinks options.

At RM10 per person for six hours on a weekday, it’s worth the trek of tolls and traffic to Kota Damansara. So what if soundproofing is less than solid, and so what if the rooms are small and shabby? Beggars can’t be choosers, and besides, Firezone makes up for it with its very-up-to-date songbook: it already includes Ariana Grande’s latest single.

Rates from RM10 per person for six hours (12noon-6pm, weekdays).

K-City Family karaoke

So many family outings and birthdays were held here, thanks to the no-frills but commendable karaoke service. Yes, it’s smack dab in the traffic woes of Cheras, but you can always walk around the 1 Shamelin mall later. If you’re lucky, you may just spot a local artist hosting his/her fan club meeting here.

Rates from RM5 per two hours and surcharge of RM5 for titbits (12noon-7pm).
