What is she singing?

Years ago, there was this HK TV show that was quite brilliant. Here was how my favorite game of the show worked: they got a non-Cantonese speaker to listen to some popular Cantonese songs through a headphone and that persons sings what he thought he heard - real time. He doesn't get to practice and it's his first time listening to the song. Not only was the lyrics foreign to him, he also had never heard the melody. The challenge is for the players to guess what song he was singing. When they thought they know, they raced to the podium and made their guess. It's really really funny. So, here is a Kira version. What do you think she is singing? See how many seconds into the song it takes for you to identify the music.
