Just like Lara & the Trailers, Betty Chung also recorded a version of Lee Hazlewoods Sugartown on the EP.
Betty Chung also recorded a Mandarin-Chinese version of another 1967 winner: Love is Blue.
The evergreen can be found on her 1968 LP Wild flame (yep, I'm still looking for that one).
If you want to see Betty Chung in action, here's a 30 second commercial for some latex paint. Gorgeous. http://chloekawaii2.multiply.com/video/item/7 (on the Queerness feeds the soul blog)
You can find the Lara and the Trailers' Mandarin version of Puppet On A String in this Eurocovers post.
