Thanks to Universal Music, Eason Chan 陳奕迅 is back to Malaysia after 2 years since the last time he visited and this time round – he came with his latest Cantonese album Getting Ready 準備中 to meet his fans here in Malaysia. 2 Fans Meeting Session were organised for fans in Malaysia. Just today, a fans meet session was held at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel and another session will happen tomorrow at Gurney Paragon Mall, Penang.
As today is only the 6th day of Eason’s new album launch globally, Malaysian fans are actually a lucky bunch to have Eason around in Kuala Lumpur. Eason make his entrance at around 8:53pm with a rather surprised look as he never thought there were so many fans present at the venue.
Malaysia is well known with all its delicious food so one of the first things Eason shared with the fans is he ate very spicy “Bah Ku Teh” earlier and felt the burning in his stomach during the event. Considerate fans who was afraid that Eason didn’t get enough Malaysia food presented Eason with “Curry Puff” and “Nasi Lemak”, it was a funny scene.
During the fans meet, 3 lucky fans were selected to ask Eason a question each, and one of the fans asked this to Eason – “If you plan to write a letter to yourself in 20 years later, what will you write?”, Eason replied he will write a “SMILE” word on it, and he is pretty sure he will still be singing 20 years later. Of course, releasing an album at that point of time in his life is another story altogether.
Coincidentally, today is also the day that marks Eason’s 20th year as a singer, where Eason won the champion of “TVB International Chinese New Talent Singing Championship” back in 1995. To celebrate it, Eason’s Malaysia Fans Club prepared a huge cake to surprise Eason. Not sure why but when the cake was presented, a Birthday Song in Bahasa was sang by the fans too.
Eason presented only 1 song – 《无条件》in the session, better than nothing right? The event ended at 9:30pm followed by an autograph session where fans got to get up close and personal when they obtain his signature. Getting Ready 準備中 is a really good album, you should go get it!
