Touch Mi Live in Malaysia @ 25/4/2015 at Genting Highlands
If not that I had a very bad luck time in casino, the past weekend would be way much happier for me after attended the exciting concert by Sammi Cheng, here in Malaysia. This is my third time watching her concert, and I’m never bored of it. If she comes again, I will watch again. Everytime she comes, she will be performing at Arena of Stars, Genting Highlands. Must be her favourite venue. She performed on last Friday and Saturday, and this is her first world tour stop after her 12 sold-out shows back in Hong Kong few month ago.
I went for the Saturday’s show. It started about 15 minutes later than the originally scheduled time of 8.30pm. But that’s alright. Not too late. Once the lights were switched off, everybody is screaming like mad in the indoor arena which is already full-house. And there she appeared on stage. The Cantopop queen! She started the show with some fast songs and were already getting all of us into the mood. Of course, the one thing I love the most from her is her slow romance songs which are mostly her classic hits back in 1990s. Yes, 1990s. Songs from almost 20 years ago.
Fortunately, she did performed many of her iconic songs too, and got us all to sing along with her. I remembered in the last two shows of her that I watched (few years ago), she delivered mostly new and had uninteresting selection of songs to perform. Furthermore, the audio system was too loud until we couldn’t really hear what she’s singing. Luckily, we didn’t see all that this time. The audio system is at the right volume, we can hear clearly Sammi’s singing (and therefore can admire her skills on that), and mostly important, the selection of songs are awesome this time.
Since I’m quite a fans of her, I remember most of the lyrics of the songs she performed that night. Wonderful. And I can say that I’m amazing because I don’t know Mandarin and yet I can remember that much of lyrics. Besides than performances, she also dazzled us with many beautiful dresses during the show. She is beautiful, but too thin. There are lesser talks from her this time, as she mentioned that she would prefer to use songs to describe her feelings and situations. Agreed with that. But when she talked, she always entertained us with some funny remarks, including dealing with everyone calling her as Mrs. Hui now (already confirmed her marriage to Andy Hui recently).
The show ended exactly after two hours, while everyone is hoping for more. We do think that two hours weren’t enough from her as she had actually a lot of songs that we wish to listen to from her live on stage. But anyway, it’s okay. We still had a great time during the show. Overall, it’s the best concert I have seen from her. It’s energetic, had great selection of songs and medleys, beautiful dresses, beautiful lighting and backdrop designs, and above all, wonderful singing by Sammi. Truly a great Cantopop queen even after so many years.
