When Will The Ice Queen Melts Again?

As i'm laying on my bed in this peaceful Tuesday night, i was taken back in time with the trance-like performance of HongKong's Cantopop / Mandopop Queen, Faye Wong ( 王菲 ), arguably one of Asia's Best Female Singer of our time.

I can still remember watching her Hong Kong 2004 concert performance, which was shown on our local TV way, way back in the middle of 90's during the Chinese New Year period [ Well, back then..and also till now, my Chinese New Year celebrations are usually spent by watching the various tv programmes i.e: Chinese movies, concerts, charity concerts, etc ] - due to her memorable dreadlocks and extremely long sleeves, which prompted us to ask, "Who's this Crazy Lady singer?! - Like that also can be famous?!" - Little that we've known, this crazy lady had grown into Asia's Best Selling Female ( Canto-Mandarin Pop ) Singer of all-time!

Now, here are some video performances of her, way back in 1994, before she transformed herself into "The Ice Queen", where she's now famously known as...With her much anticipated comeback China concert in October 2010, which has broke the record for the Fastest Selling Concert Tickets ever...We can all just hope that the "Ice Queen" would melt again and start to enjoy entertaining us once again!

With that...Simon Lover signing off...for a few days, yet again! ...Hehehe

Haha..Who can forget this crazy song - leh?!
Faye Wong - Flow Not Fly ( 流菲飞 )

The huge hit, "Dream Lover" - which was a cover of The Cranberries' "Dreams" 
Faye Wong : ( 梦中人 )

 The "Garbage Lady" say..Or so was it? -- Hehe .. Faye Wong:" Restless" (浮躁) -
The song is famous for it's nonsensical lyrics which include "La Ja Bom" - which kinda rhymes with "Lap Sap Por" - Garbage Lady...And i still can remember all the aunties, including my mum, commenting how hideous the song was...Haha!

And lastly, Faye Wong is not just famous for her silly songs....Here's a nice concert performance, which shows another lighter side of her...Performing "No Regrets" ( 执迷不悔) in her 1998 concert.

[ Damn! ...Suddenly i realize i'm getting older! - The Big 3-0 is coming soon in a few years time - tim! ]
