This is what I've heard from the sound files -

1st sound file - 阿"咩音"話我把聲好好聽。 -> 阿"咩音" says my voice is very nice.

2nd sound file - 滅音 (mit yum) -> literally it means to extinguish the noise

I guess Myriam is trying to transliterate the name "Myriam" to Cantonese. But both "咩音" and "滅音" are very odd if they are names. "美音" could be a good alternative.
