Very happy, very excited, really didn't think I would receive any awards!

Truly thank all the fans for their votes, and of everyone who is happy for guys!!!!!!

[Hacken was really happy that he won some the "Best Male Singer" awards & some awards at the Chik Chak (903 radio) Awards Show!]

Good Morning! I suppose everyone was very happy last night right! So was I!

I have received many awards which have made me very happy this year from the 4 award shows. Some which I didn't even think I would get. It was definitely a good year for me.

However, everyone must not forget that awards are only a form of encouragement. Every singer who receives an award has put in their effort and hard work. It is unnecessary to compare between singers, and to speculate who should have gotten/ not gotten the award. After all, the most important thing is one should feel happy when one's hard work is recognized, my receiving an award! :)

For example, I like Manchester United a lot and hope that they will be champions every year. However, I will also feel that Arsenal played good matches, Liverpool has good defense and Chelsea has many good soccer players to look out for.... Everyone understand what I'm saying?

Lastly, I would like to thank everyone again for your support. I will continue to work hard!

[Many fans were upset because Hacken didn't win many awards, especially none for his duets that year.]

Rarely do i have a day off, spent the whole day at home.
There's still the final "Left Lun, Right Lee" concert, and I'm beginning to feel a little bit sad (don't want the concert to end), because the next time we pair up again, it'll probably be in a few years time!
After finishing tomorrow's show, I will go on a holiday, and return in mid-February. On the 22nd, I will be performing at a charity concert, and early March, I will follow TVB to do a show at Vancouver, so I will get to see Canada's fans.
Those fans who turn up tomorrow can scream louder, it'll be recorded! See ya tomorrow night :)
(show, TVB, fans)

I'm ok, can take out the stitches in another 2 days. Can wash hair already, everyone, pls do not worry. Instead, my flu still has not cleared. My voice is still a bit hoarse. I had trouble singing at last week's concert at Shen Zhen but the concert on 7th Aug shouldn't be a problem. Thank you everyone for your concern.

Will be on Jade Solid Gold tonight. Will wear a hat and sing Goodbye Kiss Position, Will also include a clip of Gigi (Not too sure abt this part)

I will also appear on the Ms Hong Kong pageant on the 13th Aug but will only sing some old songs.

The 3rd song plugged will most probably be "Slam Door". Actually we have to consider a lot of factors when choosing the song to plug. For example, the 1st and 2nd song were all slow songs. If the 3rd song is also slow, it might give people a feeling that there are not too many changes. Also, there is the type of song that we will plug from the next album and that there should be something fresh to it. Also, the number of times a radio station will play it, and the possibility of recording a fast song in future. Thank you everyone for your opinions. I also like ' The Morning before the End of the World', but Universal is a big company. What you all have thought of, they would also have thought about it as well. Please do not worry!

My flu still hasn't cleared, but work has not stopped. I also have no choice....... :(

Just finished watching Andy Lau's concert, very exciting, on the 3rd, will go as a guest performer. The 4th plugged song? Very sorry, but there shouldn't be one, 'Slam Door' will be competing on the charts until end of September, then right after that will have a newplug, lyricist is Peter Kam, its very touching and very K (karaoke style), probably around the 20th will be able to hear it. Windpipe allergy... very severe... affecting my performance... have seen both American and Chinese doctors... have no cure... very sad!

Windpipe Allergy is still not over yet, that's why very difficult when singing, especially the line........... "no idea!" hope I will get better soon!
Today was suppose to sing 'Slam Door', dancers were ready too, but a week ago, 'Jung Fong' [the show where they welcome the olympic athletes (?)] requested that I sing Red Sun and one slow song, so that's it changed to 'Red Sun' + 'Kiss Goodbye'"

I know the support you all have given me. Hacken's fans are polite and united, I'm also aware of that. These 2 months, let us all work hard together!
Later I'll be doing a show and of course I'll be singing 'flying acrobat'!

24971. Hacken 2004-12-04 11:51:04

so it is not 38 (his age on his coming birthday)? Last night i said it without seriously calculating it. so it is 37! perhaps i have been saying 23 too often! (Hacken always jokes that he's only 23, cuz Alan is always saying he's only 25.)

tomorrow's fan gathering, i intend to let everyone listen to songs which have not been released to see the response, for 2nd plug also fine. so please be early!

afterwards, i will be busy recording the new songs and attend a "gang tai lu" 10-parter series. in the series will also be 'lee hsiang qin" (a veteran actress) who will act as my mum. definitely funny!
(2nd plug)
[kggy's explanation of "gang tai lu": "gang tai " is a HK radio station, RTHK. "lu" is record. So "gang tai lu" is ... go to RTHK record ........]

"Festival" = 2nd plug. but I like "Divine Land Line" more!
(but I like, more)
[ hyn5's explanation: Hacken said his next plugged song off of "Acrobats" CD will be "Festival," which is track 4. He, however, likes "Divine Land Line" (literally translated) more, which sounds like Hacken's previous fast songs, and is the fifth track on his new album.]

Thank you every friend that has supported me all along, no matter if you were there at the show or at home watching, without you all, I would not have got this big award that I wished I could have for the past 17 years. This year, I will work even harder. Also, hope I can get other awards. This year's award is the biggest and everyone can see it, I can share this with you. The concert has already arrived "on my doorstep", so..... I will try my best! :) :) :)

This time I'm really down with sickness. Chinese and Western medicine or herbal medicine or injection didn't help. Slept for 3 days, feeling dizzy and feverish, it's really terrible!

Can't go to Malaysia and would like to apologize to all Malaysian fans. I know some of you were waiting as early as 8 or 9 o'clock for me but eventually didn't get to see me. You must be very disappointed. Hope that by month end when I go for the concert, I can have another autograph signing session and take photographs with you. And most present a 200% satisfactory concert for all of you!

It has been a while since I left a message, how is everyone? I have been very busy recently, working on my new album. 'Victory' has been sent to the stations, this is a very fast song and it is hard to sing, so you can all try it out at karaoke. :) The new album incorporates many surprising sparks, working with Li Chuan and Gigi Leung. Also...... as well as watching the World Cup, go and buy a copy! ****** Support England and China!

Happy New Year, good health to everyone!

Actually I've been coming online to the post board to read all your messages. Recently, I discovered that everyone seem to have some comments and suggestions towards the award ceremonies which are all very similar.

Echoing each other is a good thing but I also hope that everyone will be like me and respect the results and the way the awards are calculated at each ceremony. Those who support me can vote aggressively. If you all feel that it is not enough, you can always ask your family, friends, relatives and neighbours to vote too. Immediately! Haha!

Thank you for everyone's support, especially the fans who went to hung kwun yesterday. I could see and hear all of your support. Contests will always consist of winning and losing and sadly, this year we aren't victorious but losing doesn't mean that we didn't work hard or did well! Perhaps our competition did better than we did or was able to take advantage of every chance. Don't be disapointed, saying that it wasn't fair won't make things better. The most important thing is to learn from this experience, continue to work hard - fate is in our own hands!
Sincere congratulations to Andy Lau, he deserved it but this year we'll show him our hard work! I would like to thank all of you once again, having your support makes me very proud!

To all my overseas fans, "Alan and Hacken Concert" will be coming to the following places in May: 7/5 Las Vegas, 11/5 Toronto, 14/5 Vancouver, 21/5 Tianjun, 28/5 Chongqing

The Manchester United song is currently in production, it will be composed by Fai Yeung, I will write the lyrics and there will be a Mandarin version. I will be filming the MV at Old Trafford in mid-April.

Today, I filmed two episodes of "Minute of Fame", one with Nancy Sit and the other with Joey. Tomorrow night it will be Leo's turn to be guest and I have heard it will be a good show. Are there any fans who will be there tomorrow to watch?

[explanations and corrections: By Aiwah: Old Trafford is a football (soccer?) stadium where Manchester United plays/ By Rou: Tmr is not Leo's turn to be guest but rather, the opposite. Hacken will be the guest performer at Leo's concert.]

Next time when we come, we will pay more attention!"

"Today took photos for 'TVB Drama Theme Songs' cover, actually there were other singers doing the photo shoot, such as Eason, Ekin, and other TVB Actors/Actresses.
On Saturday I will go to the 'One Minute to Fame' trials, for those who may be interested, you can go to 'Lok Fu' to see, the atmosphere is not bad.
There won't be a 4th hit, after 'Big Century' (dai si doi) it should be hitting the mandarin songs."

"These few days have been recording the mandarin songs, almost finished 50% of it, I think it will still require a little more time. last nite saw ??? (someone's) show, very funny, those who want to laugh wholeheartedly should go see the show, heard that it will have more shows in May."

[ Em's explanation of the show he watched: He went to see a show by Jim Chim (Chim Sui Man), who is a hilarious stand-up comedian in HK and also a regular on the movie screen. He put on a series of stand-up shows lately. ]

Lately I've been flying around a lot so I haven't had a chance to leave a message but I do check the site every day and am able to read your comments promptly. We've decided that "Love Can Ask Whom" will be the first radio release so everyone in their respective countries should be able to hear it on their radio stations soon. Also, I really like the mandarin version of "I Cannot Sing," felt that it is even better than the cantonese version. The chungking show was very touching, the fans were very passionate, perhaps because it was the last show. Hopefully there will be more opportunities in the future, but some fans had some comments on the sound system, correct? In August at Alan Tam's concert, I will definitely be a guest!

On June 11 there will be a mini show in guangzhou, on the 12th I'll fly to beijing for the first round of mandarin album awards. On the 18th is KL's show (anti-drug concert), the 25th is in macau, 26th will be an olympics show in beijing, and of course I will stay in beijing to promote the new album. on the 29th i will be in shanghai and on the 30th i will return to hong kong to do a radio show with gigi, chan yuan zi (newcomer?), and hins cheung.

Metro (I think is Metro Radio, literal translation: 'Sun Sing') radio's concert I really like the parts with 'Day and Night' and 'Tonight sing good song', also sang some songs that I don't normally sing too often, that night I was very very tired, because just got back from Beijing and Shanghai, but when I saw the support, I already forgotten all about it, this is also the reason why I performed early on the show. As for the Shanghai fans, the CD you gave me, I will bring it back to the company to inspect, later when I have an answer I will let you guys know first, of course I know you guys will not buy bootleg, but I have to get things cleared, no need to worry.

everybody can be rest assured that all your opinions have been conveyed to UMG, and they will plan the promotion carefully. I know it was really tough for the shanghai fans, so when i saw u guys waiting for me even though the weather was really bad, i was very happy. Also, the cd that u guys gave me the last time has been proven that it is.. an original CD!

[ NOTE: ROU's corrections: The first line should be: Everyone rest assured that your suggestions has long been reflected to Universal and I believe they know what to do.

In other words, the ball is in Universal's court now. ]

"Just came back from a photo shoot in Guangzhou for a new season of commercials. Today I also threw a meeting, thanks to all the Guangzhou fans that attended. Later on, I will also do further promotions in China; including Taiwan, Xingma (I don't know this place in English).
I've already chosen the songs for the upcoming Cantonese CD. This particular recording will have a special arrangement including highly regarded musicians. Hopefully, I will be able to perform some of the songs on the night of "Bao Lang" (A concert/occasion?)

[ NOTE: Rou's explanations: its not exactly a meeting...more of this press conference to celebrate the success of Love can ask whom on the radio charts and to introduce the album to the chinese press.
xingma = singapore & malaysia

I have been busy with miss hongkong pagent work the whole week and I am still rushing to write lyrics. The original plan was to write ten songs, but the process is going too slow so half of the songs will be written by can xiu kei (dun noe if translation in canto is correct; he has written a lot of good lyrics for hacken in the past canto albums e.g festival). The quality of the canto songs are not bad and everybody would be able to listen to them in about a month's time.

I'm going for the 'sunshine plan' concert soon and I saw ur complaints and truthfully I got upset. You guys need to know that a singer's job is to sing and make music, promoting their songs as hard as they can and introducing their music to every person, other jobs like how to promote, where to promote, what songs to plug and when to plug are the company's responsibility. Even though the singer has a say in these jobs but it is still fundamentally the company's decision and the singer has to do his best to adjust to their decisions.
I cannot say that umg's efforts in promoting the songs have been great these few months and umg knows that too, especially due to the changing of the promotion committee in june and july, a lot of things are still trying to adapt to the changes, but i believe umg will do their best and so would I.

I understand everybody's feelings, but this is still a public forum and there are some things that cannot be told to everybody (I think he refers to reporters). I hope that I can communicate with my fans through this forum but i really don't wish to see your complaints about umg everyday.

All in all, I understand and i am going off now!

The day earlier will be when I am going to record the songs for the new Cantonese album. Will be recording 10 songs all at one go, as if it is a live performance.

I loved the banner that was done by the malaysian fans and many thanks to all the malaysian and nan jing fans for all their support. At the end of September I think I will be going to beijing and fuzhou to promote my cd, it will be confirmed here on the board at a later date.

[ROU'S EXPLANATION OF WHAT THE BANNER SAID: "Hak Seh We": its a pun on the words. Hak comes from the second word in hacken's canto name of cos, and "seh we" sounds like the canto term for society. when placed together these 3 words sound like the canto term for secret society...hehe...]

the recording process is extremely successful, the effect is also extremely ideal. i believe later when everyone hears it, they will feel that this is very different from my previous albums. very live and music-focused, the lyrics are also very special, it comes in pairs, like i wrote "woman before marriage", siu kay (the lyricist)responded with "after marriage", he wrote "lost love song" and i wrote "victorious in love", its very nice to play.

1st plug is called "love in seoul" (written by hacken). its a (dunno what this instrument is)+guitar+violin tragic love song, will sing it for the first time for the TVB recording of the health promotion board show, as well as on the po leung and mid-autumn festival show on the 18. it will also be sent to the radio stations next week.

am yet to think of the album name...diamond hill (the place where the song is recorded) live? u guys can try to think about it for me!

It's confirmed/hopefully it will be able to release on the 1st of November.

Thank you everyone for your wishes and "good luck"s and also my cheerleaders from last night. To be able to get this big prize was not only my effort, it was thanks to a lot of people's cooperation. The timing was just right and many thanks to you guys of course!

Haha, sometimes my fans scream really well! Didn't rest too much today, have to practice a dance. This time it will be a bit difference from last time, it will be a surprise for all!

Using different instruments as accompaniment will definitely bring about different moods and style of singing and different effects!

there will be a 'hot' dance? It is true, but it is not that simple. There will definitely be something that everyone won't expect.

Andy Lau will be the guest on the first night and will be counting down to the Year of the Dog with everyone. Roger Kwok's 'Lo Por zai' [Jessica Hsuan] will also appear on one of the nights.

There are no plans to increase the number of concerts currently. A lot of technical problems that are yet to be solved.

Rehearsal is very smooth, hopefully everyone will like the show. The first show's rundown will be different from the other ones because the first show will coordinate with the countdown, but each night the songs will also have some changes, to maintain each night's freshness.

Gung Hei Fat Choy, and of course 'Duk Sum Ying Sau' [Dreams Come True]!

Last night was the first show, of course will have some good and bad, rundown was also a little conservative, because we have to observe what reaction we get from each part and then we make some changes for the other shows, but I think it was ok! Before I said that each night will have some change in songs, as for tonight, probably won't sing '1001 night' and 'guen luen' [sorry not sure what the English translation is] [Babelfish translates it as "Attachment," maybe meaning not being able 2 forget an ex-girlfriend]... but there are some classic songs that must sing, there are people who bought tickets because of 'Red Day' and 'Concert Hall' [dai wui tong], hope everyone understands.

The actual rundown for the concert will be the same as last night's one. We had to incorporate the Chinese New Year countdown into the first. That's why it was a bit rushed. The next 6 shows will be similar to last night's one [2nd show].

Besides Ah Wong [Roger Kwok] and Joey Leung, there may not be guests every night. Those who appear are my good friends, but some of them are not in Hong Kong and are thus unable to make it for the concert.

It is very funny. When I was singing "Juan Lian" [Thinking of You] for the encore part, I heard someone shouting for me to sing "Cang Hai Yi Zhu" [The name of another song... not sure of the translation]. Last night, I was singing "Hao Xi Zhi Ren" [sth about good actor or sth], I heard people shouting for "I'll never Change [Yat sang But Bin]"! Actually, every song has their own supporter. For the next 6 nights, I will change some of the songs in the rundown part especially during the encore portion.

I made a mistake. Actually, Andy is the guest for tonight!

Yesterday was very smooth overall. I was also feeling in form. Except that there were some slight problems with the ear piece for one or 2 songs. This resulted in me singing a bit uncomfortably. The songs were "Yue Ban" (Moonlight Melody and "Yi Sheng Bu Ai Bie Ren" (Will never Love another again). I believe that there will be improvements tonight.

With regards to the false report by 'that magazine', i just feel helpless, disappointed and regretful. actually, I am already used to the exaggeration approach that some magazine uses, but to an artist, i really hope that we will get the respect and that we are being treated fairly! I don't understand why everyone has the same photos, witnessed the same thing happening, but the reports that came out are entirely different.

I only wish to tell all those who are concern for Emily and I: We are alright. 'That magazine's report is 95% untrue! We had a great time in Japan except that we were being constantly followed about!

I'll upload some photos later for everyone to see.

Last night arrived in Singapore, 0800 this morning continued with the filming for 'Left Alan, Right Lee' moving, because it is continued shooting, I had to change the hair color to what it was before, actually am not too used to seeing that hair color, I personally like the concert's purple hair color. I will be staying here for about 10 days, can eat the chicken rice and the green color cake.

Today started at midday, that's why just finished from work.

watched bits and parts of the Manchester (literally Maan Luen) game, 4:0 of course is a very happy result of the game, today also saw a group of KL fans, thank you all for your presents, remember to drive safely. Also there were the Singapore fans, you guys give me so much food and snacks, will become fat, haha! Couple days ago I ate a Chocolate Lana Cake, is very tasty! It's as good as the green cake.

Came back from Singapore yesterday. The filming of the movie went pretty smoothly. We are now left with the Hong Kong portion of trying to touch up the movie. I heard it will be screening in June. If you want to know more about what happened in Singapore, watch out for this week's 'Ming Pao' (magazine)

The concert CD will be out by this month. VCD/DVD will be later. The 4th plug for my album is '10 years before and after' (the 1st track). I heard that it has already been distributed to the stations before I came back.

'Xian feng Bang' (an awards ceremony)? I am also not too sure of the company's arrangement. I think I should be attending it. You all must also work hard at the voting process ah!

last night's award ceremony was both a shock and delight. Delight was of course I got a quite a few awards and shock because every since i came back from Singapore, I have been troubled by flu, my throat feels uncomfortable and I have a cough, my voice has also changed, so i had to push back the recording of the World Cup themesong. But i really didn't want to lip-synch last night so i had to 'take a gamble', luckily it was not so bad. However, one thing funny was (other than during the first time i got the award), i never got a chance to speak on stage again! i wanted to tell everybody that i was not feeling well, and hoped everybody could understand. Also i would like to thank all the guangzhou fans last night, even though u guys were sitting pretty far, i could still feel your enthusiasm. Many thanks!

I will be a guest singer at Lau Ka Cheung's concert. And definitely at Vivian's (Vivian Chow) show la! Also, the recording for the world cup song will take place some time this week. Melody by Chan Fai Yeung, your humbly's lyrics (ie: he wrote the lyrics). This song will also be featured in the 'Ka See Pak' (Carlsberg beer) advertisement that we cooperated on.

The jersey I wore that day was not the Liverpool jersey. It is the England new home kit. This is because Carlsberg is England's beer sponsor

Recently, the paparazzi are getting increasing... , they are almost following me everyday. Last night when I went back to my parents' house to have dinner, they actually tried to force their way into private property! Very bad attitude! Last time, even when the paparazzi took photos, they were still rather orderly and did not create much trouble. But last night, the security guards had to even call the police, sigh!
I heard that they even got a super super super long lens (so that you can take pictures from far away i think). Now, I even have to draw the curtains at home. Why did it become like that?

Those photos (on the website) were taken a few days during the filming of the world cup theme song mv, we spent the whole day at the football field filming, together with the nan hua football team. I have loved watching the nan hua team playing ever since i was young, and to be able to film with them was really exciting.

Tomorrow i will be going to lau ga cheung's house as a guest (huh..probably a performance) and have a press conference, on tuesday i will be helping tvb magazine to present awards,we have started work on 'concert hall2' , hopefully it will be better than the last album. the concert vcd and dvd will be released during the middle of the month, this time, the dvd will have a gold version, and it would be shot with high-definition technology, making it clearer than any other dvd!

New song "I'm wearing Number 10" has been sent out to the radio station! On the 9th of July, and also the finals of the World Cup, there will be a TVB Music Special of me being aired. (I think it may be sth like a mini concert). It was originally supposed to be at last year's end, but couldn't match the dates and thus was cancelled. But all details are still being finalized.

Wah! Last night's rain was good! The gold version of the DVD is almost all sold out. The normal (karaoke) version will be released soon. Will be recording a song for Yi Neng's 20th anniversary (the artiste management company Hacken is under I think). I heard it will be put into the 'Left Alan, Right Lee - I love this family' movie. Alan and I will be going to Beijing, Guangzhou, Singapore and Malaysia at the end of May to promote the movie.

I will be at Teacher Lau's concert on the first to fourth and seventh (last) performances because I have to do some promotion for a film in the middle. Tomorrow I will be with Joey and Alan on "????" (English title of this entertainment show is Scoop) to promote the film, nothing to do with music. As for the Music is Live concert, I am just the guest for Ivana Wong and Hins and just have a ten minute performance.

Those who watched the 'making of' section of the DVD will know that I hope to have a concert, which is just about singing. I wanted to hold this at Christmas, but there is no availability at any venue in Hong Kong! My ideal would be at the cultural centre, but I will have to wait until next April! Looks like everyone will have to wait a little while longer.

I will be working on the World Cup until 9th July and there is also the planned music special. On the 22nd, I will be in KL for the "Minutes (to Fame)" final and in August, it has been confirmed to go to Korea for "Concert Hall II"... I am not getting married in July, it won't be so quick. I think it should be after "Concert Hall II"!
I know many people care for us, but getting married is not like cooking a meal on a daytime TV show, so I don't need to reveal or explain every step along the way. The press have been making up lots of false stories all along, so I hope you will not believe everything you read. If I can talk about it, I will tell you about it here.
I have just received gifts from my UK fans from 'ma lai', many thanks! Waiting for my visit to Beijing on the 26th, I wonder if I will see any Beijing Hacken fans?

Yesterday, I recorded two songs in one go, one is a World Cup medley that strings together all the songs I have sung before about football. The other is the duet with Joey, which is the theme song for the RTHK series "One Family".
From tomorrow, I will be writing some World Cup articles for Oriental, so you can go online and take a look.
I was very happy to see my fans in Beijing and Guangzhou, especially the ones in Beijing, I have heard your words and will come back more!

Just finished doing Teacher Lau's show and now I am busy working on the World Cup. The first day of shooting will be tomorrow at 2300, of course before that I will go to the apm. Half of the songs for the new album have been selected, Ivana has just handed one in and it is very good, so I hope there will be some new chemistry.

Germany do not have Ballach (German soccer player's name), so they may not get two goals, what do you think?

Of course I have been too, watching football, commentating on football, writing about football. Everyone knows I have been writing for Orisun, but I have also been writing for a Mainland website:
If you have time, do go and take a look.

This week, I open the magazines and am 'surprised' to find there is news about my World Cup show. I feel very helpless and regretful about these untrue reports.
I will still not make any response though. I hope you will understand.
I think I will refuse the kind offer from Pay TV for a "Stag Party". A low profile wedding is more suited to me.
It's nearly time to go now, go England to win! Haha!
I hope Meng gets well soon!

[Meng is a fan that posted a message saying that the doctor warned she/he of having stomach cancer and is really worried about it. Many fans and Hacken responded to Meng's message with encouraging thoughts.]

I have not left a message for a while because I have not been in Hong Kong.
After the World Cup, I went abroad to rest for a few days, to avoid the press finding out where I was going, I did not tell you where I went, please forgive me!
Yesterday morning at 10am, I was in Guangzhou shooting a Winter Collection ad for the Kwan Ho Fashion company. In the evening I attended an awards ceremony, where I received three awards, making me very happy. Thank you to all my supportive fans, I have not sung "Woman before Marriage" [in a long time?], so I was a little nervous last night!
Tonight I will be a guest at the 'Music is Live' concert. Remember that it is Hins and Ivana Wong who are the leading act, so for fans who will be attending, please give them your applause! Tomorrow I will be filming for "Be My Guest" (Dinner with Stephen) and attending the World Cup celebration.

Host 15/16? No, I won't. I just received a call from Nat (Nat Chan) and went on his show as a guest. I never imagined I'd come away with so much!
Heartfelt thanks to my Singaporean and Malaysian fans, that afternoon was very tiring and the show was over 4 hours long, so the meeting afterwards was a little short. If you have the chance, please thank Terry because his gift was very heavy! :) [Terry helped Hacken carry fans' gifts]
Work that involves 'seeing people' in the next few weeks is minimal, because I will be preparing well for my new album and toning up my voice for recording in August in Seoul.

I will say this one more time. I hope everyone will be a smart Hacken fan and not believe what the magazine says so easily!
Firstly, I still do not know which magazine it is, but I have never said anything about when I am going to get married or even done any interview for my wedding in any magazine! Recently, there has been a lot of reporters who has been disturbing both me and my girlfriend's family members. 3 or 4 cars belonging to reporters stopping outside my house is no longer something new. Actually, my life for the last 10 over years have been pretty normal. Work, soccer, have meals outside, sleep. Nothing much to film. and I have never been afraid of someone filming me. But today, I don't want my pictures to be taken by the paparazzi becaise it has become another matter. When last time we had 4 persons eating, now there's only 2. Happy times became unhappy times. When we don't talk, it is interpreted that we are giving black face (meaning unhappy with each other). Plus using rude and malicious words to describe my friends and family around me. There is just so many of them. So many!
If you have any questions, can ask me here. Remember, must be a smart Hacken fan.

I thought the 'Sang Seng' show (concert organised by the Radio station) was not bad as well. There is one part that I can use as part of the rundown for the concerts in America/Canada in December.
Went to Wu Zhou yesterday to do a show. It was a very quick trip. It took seven hours to go there and six hours to get back. Reached home at 3am. and even caught a cold. That's why I have to wear a mask when I go over to Macau today. I've seen the doctor, no need to worry.
Will be going to Shanghai tomorrow morning. It's a corporate performance which I agreed to attend very much earlier. thus, I will not attend the JSG selection.

Concert Hall 2 is rushing for the last few jobs [just a couple more things to take care of so that the CD can be finished and released]. It's confirmed/hopefully it will be able to release on the 1st of November. I have been doing a lot of interviews lately and mostly all those AV audio magazines that are available in Hong Kong, already have done the interviews. I believe that in 2 weeks time those interviews will be out.

England lost 0-2. I've got nothing to say. Those good players that are good in shooting at goal and passing of the balls are not selected...what kind of coach is this?
