Ahh…finally the day of the conert arrived, it’s Love Mi Concert 2010 at Arena of Stars, Genting Highlands. Everyone know the singer, she is Sammi Cheng, the famous Hong Kong diva and commonly recognized as one of the Four Heavenly Queens of Hong Kong music. I have been waiting so long to watch her concert, and I bought her ticket around a month ago at a price of over RM180.
It seems so expensive, right? Sitting near the stage? Not really, RM180 seats are still at the back, but at the center area. Luckily the arena is not so huge, so we can still see the stage clearly. Before that, we were stuck in serious traffic jams along the highway to pass through Ampang and Bukit Antarabangsa before going for Genting. Traffic jams for over 1 hour 30 minutes. Our journey began at 5.45pm and ended up at Genting at 7.45pm (the car ride usually took only 1 hour the most). The traffic jams is due to a freak car accident, and everyone is like so busybody to look at it, causing few kilometres long of congestion.
Luckily, we are still on time for the concert. Of course, we don’t hop for any late cases. I am watching with my eldest sister. We want to watch from beginning till the end, since the opportunity for her to come here for concert is very minimal. Eeiihh…she had Show Mi Concert 2008 and Show Mi Again Concert 2009 at Genting too. However, I did not attend both. How come? Forget why already….haha…When I was child, I treated her as my singing idol because she has good voice and great songs, especially those classic love songs…now also ,I like her songs too…
The tickets and the paper fan given on each seat:
The concert is amazing and great, but kinda too short, only two hours 15 minutes like that…seems not enough, I wished for a three-hours one. Anyway, Sammi is kinda humourous on that night especially when she received presents from fans and requesting for exchanging suites. Wow,,, she changed so many weird-like suites that day…it is like every three songs, she go change clothes…but beautiful also, since she is pretty also despite her current age of 30++, nearing to 40. There are two invited guests, both are music producers, so we don’t recognize them. They sang few songs but not nice.
She sang very well yesterday’s night. Great performance especially her dances. She even sang some famous English songs like ‘You Raise Me Up’, she sang another good version of it. Of course, we like her classic love songs which compacted into only one Medley song. When the concert began as well as going to end, everyone is like screaming for her. At the end, all screamed for encore which I hope for too. Haha…she went up to stage back to sing her most famous song, ‘Zhong Sang Mei Lai’, theme song for the Hong Kong movie ‘Love Diet’, starring her and Andy Lau.
The concert began not at the precise time of 8pm because the Genting ‘boss’ still not arrived yet as told by Sammi to the crowd. Who is him? Probably Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, the founder of Resort World and current chairman of Genting Highlands. He is such a ‘big’ person, until Sammi also want to take a look at him. So many people guarding him to the front seat, probably it’s Tan Sri. The concert ended on 10.30pm with not all her famous songs sang..she had also explained that she had sang for over ten years, hence all her beautiful songs can’t be sang out that night, if not, it will be until 3am concert…haha
