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!

"Just finished filming "Festival" 's Karaoke version MV, TVB's version will be filmed next week. Tomorrow will be heading out to KL (Kuala Lumpar??), hopefully this time will be successful and smooth! Hong Kong fans, remember to vote! see you on the 8th!!"

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!

"Yesterday was supposed to go the prepartion for the show (Hong Kong's version of American Idol), but since I had to go to Guang Dung Station's function so I couldn't go, missed a happy opportunity! The show will be opened on the 2nd, right now is coming up with the theme song, at that time, it should be very fun."

"Happy New Year! these few days had no work, it was so relaxing, new year festivities are not too bad! the 15th will resume my work schedule, what do you guys think about the show, 'American Idol'? the second episode was much smoother, the 16th will record the 3rd episode, at the same time will also start working on the mandarin CD, also the cantonese CD, and 'Maan Luen' (Manchester Song) songs, etc.......

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?
(fans, Las Vegas, Toronto, Vancouver, mv)

[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.]

"Tonight will appear in many different parts, there is song requests, there is charity version of 'One Minute to Fame', and of course will sing 'Dai Si Doi'!
Thank You to all Singapore fans for your support, also the gifts and red envelopes! but Alan and I really don't know how the expensive/cheaper ticket's seating, and it's a four-sided stage, finding the direction around the stage is quite difficult, we also made a few mistakes with the stage coordination!
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. ]

"Now it's 8 in the morning on the West Coast. Last night's show in LV went smoothly, the audience were very enthusiastic (warm), which I enjoyed!

The only imperfection is the jetlag, everyday I can only sleep off and on, hope that it will become better soon.

"Festival" is elected into the finals (I believe for the JSG seasonal award?!), thanks to everyone who voted ! "

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.
Alan's concert, I will be guest on the 31st."

we are also having a headache trying to decide which song to use as the 2nd plug. We are going to choose between 'Slowly' (literally translated as 'seng seng maan') and 'Da Yu' (Heavy Rain). We will collect comments from everywhere before we decide.

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!
(fans, 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. Hacken did not give any confirmation with regards to what Universal will do, unlike what the translation implied. He was only acting as an intermediary between his fans and Universal. 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
and its not bao lang...its po leung. po leung kuk is a charity organisation and every year there is this charity extravanganza/concert held to raise funds. it was at this event last year that we first heard "hear the wound talk". ]

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.

xiao qing(the fan's name), I will be going to that place on the 27th, but i will only be singing 3-4 songs, its not a big concert, can u send me details regarding that show?

[Muic's explanation of the message: this was the fan's msg (that Hacken was responding to): Hacken, when i went to china to work is a poster that stated you will be holding a big scale concert at dong yun feng stadium (some stadium i have no idea where) on 27/8 8.50pm, is that true?]

40284. ?? 2005-08-28 14:41:52

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 recording for the finals of 'The cruellest Bell' (AKA Minutes to Fame) will be held on the 14th of September. 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. Details will be announced during the press conference on the 5th of September.

From today onwards, i will be able to rest for quite a few days and prepare my vocals for the 13th. The only work i will be having is the jian cai(some ceremony?) and the editing of the lyrics on the 8th. 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!

The promotional tour in Beijing was very successful. Been on many TV and radio programs in the past few days. I also want to thank the Beijing fans for your presents. But the promotion event in Fujian next week has been cancelled. It should be postponed until sometime in October, more details will be announced here later.

It's still pouring heavily now, it is still unclear if the press conference later this afternoon will be cancelled!

Thank you all Singapore fans for the fruits and mooncakes.
Today, I filmed the TVB version of the MV, which is a little simpler because only need to lip-sync since film clips from Korea's Concert II were added. Only four hours needed.

I will appear in the last part of today's show and sing "Woman Before Marriage" and the new song, "tin sui wei chen" ["(City) Surrounded by Heaven and Water"]. Tomorrow afternoon at 2pm i will be at "World Heart Day".
In December, I will go to Atlantic City [in New Jersey, USA] and Toronto [in Canada] for a concert.

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?

It's really lively here on Saturday!
Today no need to work, have been staying at home, while eating crab and at the same time watching the match of Manchester United. They bounce back 3:1, feel really good!
No matter it's at the radio station or at the official website, the version of "Princess Prince" is a demo version, mixing and mastering has not been completed, in the future you all will get to hear another verison which is "better" than this.
Regarding the voting issue?
It's up to you all!
If you want to vote, then vote!
But its better if you vote...haha! Come and have a look at the instructions given by the fan club!
