Orchid can sing..


         Don’t believe it? This is true..but only in my country, as I was talking about a person :) The only orchid that I know who can really sing was the late Orchid Abdullah. Orchid was her real name.. She was a singer and quite popular too..especially in the 60’s and 70’s..She’s been singing songs in Malaysian Radio back in the days..Before that she was a former school teacher..She came from a mix parentage of Arabian and English.
          
        One of her most memorable song is Penawar Rindu. The song simply tells about a girl who's secretly in love with a man but he didn’t know it till the end..this is another evergreen traditional song in my country which has been covered by many artist past and present. She died in May this year.


         Datin Orchid Abdullah merupakan salah seorang penyanyi pujaan ramai era 60-an / 70-an dengan menyanyikan lagu-lagu di Radio Malaysia. Beliau sering membuat persembahan dengan diiringi oleh kumpulan The Les Coasters. Berdarah kacukan Arab dan Inggeris beliau mencipta nama dengan lagu Penawar Rindu.

         Sebelum bergelar artis ternama beliau merupakan seorang pendidik dan pernah bertugas sebagai guru sementara di Sekolah Sri Mersing. Bakat dan minat tersebut tidak pernah menghalang beliau aktif dalam kerja-kerja kesenian khususnya ketika melanjutkan pelajaran di salah sebuah Maktab Perguruan di Johor. Beliau meninggal dunia pada bulan Mei 2011..



 On the cover of her album.Orchid, such a rare name for a person. 
         


She's as beautiful and lovely as her name..



 There's always a girl named Rose, Jasmine, Lily or Camellia, but how many person named Orchid in this world?

 Penawar Rindu merupakan sebuah lagu berentak ghazal ciptaan Atan Ahmad. Lagu ini dirakam pada tahun 1970. Orchid merakamkan lagu ini dengan iringan kumpulan Orkes Sri Kenangan Batu Pahat. Lagu ini telah menjadi salah satu lagu Ghazal yang paling popular dalam sejarah muzik Melayu serantau dan sering dinyanyikan dalam persembahan orkes Melayu.


        


Die when I may, I want it said by those who knew me best 
that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower 
where I thought a flower would grow.
