Woot!~ I was fortunate to be invited to another event last week. Brem Mall Kepong hosted Hong Kong Artist Joey Yung to a meet the fans session yesterday. I got there around 630 pm. Had a quick tour around Home, a new furniture shop in Brem Mall Kepong. Cousin called me and asked me to enter the VIP area. We got down to ground floor and from what I see, Joey Yung does has a lot of fans from Malaysia. We had difficulty entering the VIP area, it s almost like I had to barge my way in :) Anyway, we got some really good premium seats. A guy from 8TV was next to me, and I see some familiar faces reporters in front of me. Unfortunately, Joey who was initially slated to arrive at 7 pm was late. I think she arrived around 8 something yesterday. 988 deejay Ah San was quick to solve the problem. He initiated some games session with the fans to keep them happy. Posters were given out to the fans. Eager fans surged forward against the barrier to grab the precious posters :P
This is not the first time I shot an artist from Hong Kong, I did Bosco sometime back last year. Not a very good job back then, but I believe my skills has improved :P When news of Joey has arrived at Brem Mall, fans started to go hysterical and screams can be heard all the way back to Kepong Baru LOL..Sorry . Exaggerated a bit on that part :P But can you imagine the fans club people are just behind me with placards and whistles? Yes..I think you can imagine that. Joey was quick to the stage and the event began. My wife and I thinks Joey is really pretty in person. And jeez, she can sing lar! This is “Ching Cheung Wooi”, means she sang just using the mic and music from tape. I dunno bout the PA system they used, but she sounds really good. After the first song, games session with fans began. Very interactive from her part as well from the fans. She performed the second song which really reminds me an English song, cant remember which though. After the 2nd song, the autograph session took place. You can meet her up close and personal by purchasing a copy of her album. She will autograph it personally. Only thing I didnt like was her overzealous manageress/assistant. A fan wanted to take pics of her, I also understand the PA/Manager was just doin her job. But being rude to the fan and pushing her camera away is not the way to go. The fan actually scolded the PA/Manager. I hope Joey will have a word with the PA/Manager. As an artist, fans are the artist most valuable asset. Anyway, enuff of my rantings, here are the pics.
You got to have one these to get around :)
