The same thing goes to you. Singh can only sing about Kg Puah but when Singh comes to sing Sentul, the Sentul singing is missing.

Those Indians in Sentul has been evicted. They have been living there for Generations. They are not cowherds but pioneers in Kereta Api TANAH MELAYU in moving Straits Settlement, gone through the wars with Japs towards formation of Malaysia.

In the end when those Indians are evicted, sad to say nothing from you when you mouth so much about Kg Puah
