China Doll, aka Ed Kwan (Ming Wu / mingwuphoto.com)
Ed Kwan - better known to karaoke lovers as China Doll - is the karaoke drag queen on the Somerset Strip. She makes an appearance each Saturday at The Shanghai Restaurant. The restaurant was first started by the Kwan parents. Now the kids run it. A few years back, CBC network producer Bob Carty brought his own microphone to karaoke night to meet China Doll. More recently, China Doll stepped out of the Shanghai Restaurant to perform at The Chutney n' Chopsticks Cabaret at Club Saw in Ottawa.
