Andy was at Tsim Sha Tsui Harbour City yesterday for an autograph session for his new album, A Better day. Abt 1,000 fans gave him the support.

As the weather was unstable with warning of impending strom , the initial outdoor activity was shifted indoors.

The first fan at the q was there since 6 am. Andy hip hop attire drew screams from the fans.

Fans sang along with him when he sang Practise. It was a heart-warming sight.

As everyone was waiting patiently for Andy to get ready , a female fan yelled, "Andy, I love u ! " Andy was of course v happy to hear this, pretended to be serious, he asked fans in Mandarin, "Who is that ?"

He had said he thinks abt marriage every second, as it is time to have BB. This is evidently seen yesterday. When fans came with cute BBs, he carried them & had photos taken with them. He was also v warm to young fans.

At the fastest speed, within an hr or so he finished signing for 1000 over fans.

MVs of 2 songs Practise & The bat Air Force were played at the big LCD screen outside the building. Many gathered to watch.

Andy said MV for The Bat Air Force was done with plasticine clay, preparatory work took 2 to 3 mths . There were young middle-age, & old looks . The fee was high at abt a million. The manufacturer presented one of the toys to Andy. One look has moustache, with winter cap & thik chain.

Andy will have an autograph session today at Tsim Sha Tsui. MV for the song The Bat Air Force will be released for the first time . The story bears some semblence to his movie A Momment Of Romance III. The story is abt an air force being separated fr his wife to defend the country. After 30 yrs, his wife together with their grown-up child received an old pilot back at the airport. It was a touching scene with the reunion.

[i think there is a change of the story ! ]

This MV comes with new idea. In it, a plastic toy moulded into the shape of Andy was used. The look is vivid, resembles the real person , complete with big eyes, sharp nose, & thin lips. The female lead also has big eyes, high nose, resembles Rosamund Kwun. The son has the same mould as Andy.

The record co disclosed that it was a true story on a young Taiwanese man. This man has a father who worked in the air force. Before he was born his father was sent for a mission. 30 yrs later, he & his mother were told to receive him at the airport, but what they received at the airport was the ashes. Actually his father was killed 30 yrs ago in the air raid.

But in order to suit the album title A Beautiful Day , the ending is changed to a happy one.

’My wife is most probably a v common person’

Andy was interviewed by Metro Radio recently . He talked on his views with dating & marriage.

He indicated he has always think abt marriage. He said, “Actually every minute I will think of this problem, because this is the time to have a BB, if I see others are happy after marriage, I will think of it. . But if I see people having problems after marrying, I will drop the idea. ”

Andy does not have high demands with his partner. He said rich or poor does not matter. When asked which type of lady is suited to be his gf or wife. He said, “Don’t think what type of lady will Andy’s wife be like always, maybe she is just a v common person, maybe her character is extraordinary, so much so that she can let one who is so talented, so wise like Andy subdued. I feel that people around me all have some pressure, such as my younger bro, everytime when I introduced him to others , because of having Andy as brother, he feels that he is fat.. “

Asked he is so busy how does he find time dating, he didn’t deny he did not date, he said the most important thing is to be happy together, as long as they are not disturndd by others. On he likes to have dating overseas, he said he has heard of the rumor, he feels the best way is to be antural.

Andy was in Taiwan last night. He held a celebration party to celebrate the good sale of his album & the upcoming concert in Taiwan.

He spent lavishly on media personnels from 200 over newspapers, TV stations, KTV, band musicians & others. Not only he went round every table to toast, he was so meticulous, he prepared 200 instant photo shots, to have photo taken with everyone, one by one. Even the restaurant staff q to have photo taken with him. Thet were at a Japanese restaurant.

When people commented that though he was the sure chart topper, when Jay Chou’s album was out, he dropped to No.2. He smiled , “My album had been top for 3 weeks, if I can still beat him, then u don’t have to eat this, I will invite all to the moon.”

Andy had swept the gloom he had recently away. A Better Day sold 400,000 copies, his concert has sold 10,000 tickets. Though he lamented that celebration before was for 1 mil copis, now with economic gloom, with this result is already not bad.

During photo taking, he even mimic the TV station reporter to shoulder camera in photo taking. With CCT court case unsettled, owing him HK $30,000,000, Andy has no income for 6 mths, he joked that he needs to take money from his mother when he goes out.

On the court case, Andy is taking it easy. He said he can do anything, “I can go back to cut hair, open a pub to sing for my fans, that I can do for a lifetime. “

When he feels troubled, when he couldn’t sleep, he gets up to copy Buddhist sutra . The suta cannot anyhow write, when the mood is messy, he has to continue writing, after an hr or two, he will feel the peace.

Andy specifies his value ideas from fans, he is always online once a day. At chat room, he uses his own name, the fan usually couldn’t believe it.

Everyone was much entertained & enjoyed themselves at the party.

News of Chen Pao Lian committed suicide in Shanghai was a shock to everyone. Was it due to drug over dose or postnatal depression nobody knows. Andy felt it is a pity. Andy is a staunch Buddhist, he said writing of Buddhist sutra can help one to relieve stress. After writing, he will bring to the temple to pray & burn. This is his best way of relieving stress. Maybe that is why Andy seldom has mood swings & always take it easy with the ups & downs in career.

Filming of Wu Jian Xing Zhe has begun, but the female role, young version of Tony, etc have not been confirmed. As for yonger version of Andy, Andy is asking for one that has nose look like him. Will he play back his younger self ? He said he is v against it, as he is unable to act back the ‘spirit’ of yesteryears. If cannot find one, he would rather choose a younger popular actor to act.

On the court case between CCT & Teamwork, Andy sighed that at the earliest it will last a yr, or even dragged 3 to 4.

Any possibility of resolving ?

”It is troublesome to go to court, but must give back my innovence.”

His lawyers will handle the case. Now he is used to the actions that are meant to create troubles.

He had felf unhappy, but it is now over. He stressed within this short period of time , he wont be a boss, even if he wants to next time, he will not partner with anyone else. At the moment he feels relax as an artiste with nothing much to worry about. “Now I am happy, don’t need to be a boss & don’t need to go for meetings, I can wholeheartedly take care of fans & media .” But he wont because of this & becomes suspicious of friendship.

DIARY 30/7

Do all of u listen to tonite’s RTHK prg ? Really a chance hard to come by, other than live band , also could sing live some gold songs with the djs in a relax manner. Haha~~~ for along time have no such ‘unretrained ‘ performance, many thanks to the dj of the prg, for giving me a night of fun. My addition to singing came to full play, after the prg still not feeling enough !
