Anyway, I went for Stefanie Sun’s concert back in July together with my bffs and I really enjoyed myself a lot.
I bought the tickets way before the public sales because I have friends from the fan club and they asked me whether do I wanna go together with them, so of course I want! Stefanie Sun have been (and is still) someone that is very inspirational to me, ever since I was young. I’ve been liking her since I was in primary school and that’s about 14 years. Liking someone for 14 years is really crazy long and if I’m married to her, I would have been together with her for 14 years already omg.
My love for her hasn’t change throughout the years because she inspire me in a lot of ways and allows me to really understand the different perspective of lives through her personal interviews and her social media accounts, like her blog etc. I think she is someone that most people like her not (just) for her looks but the music she produce, the way she carries herself, the messages that she spread to the public and the moral that she uphold.
Her music actually accompanied me throughout the years and even though Mandopop is not as glorious as it used to be now, I still think she produce quality music and works that she truly believe in which reflects in her album sales.
As you guys know Kpop craze is currently in the trend now and many Chinese singers actually tried to change their music direction or music video direction to something that is similar to Kpop or even their dressing as well. It seems like they are losing their originality and trying to leech on the popularity of Kpop. I’m not saying say it is bad thing or that it is wrong because I am also doing that subconsciously too. Like how I used to type a little bit of Korean words on my Instagram caption or Twitter update before or adding my Korean name that I translated from ’typicalben’ on my Instagram profile.
I mean it’s really hard not to jump in the bandwagon of leveraging the trend (because for sure, we know that there will greater response) but Stefanie Sun is a singer that doesn't do that at all. She still do what she believes in and do her own thing. I think all of us that like her, like her for who she is and I must say her songs (especially the her 抒情 ones) have always been touching and good ever since she started, from her first debut album.
Although lately I’ve been more into hip hop music, like Nicki Minaj, but whenever when I want to sing to Mandopop, I will always listen to Stefanie’s song. She is someone that is truly herself on stage and off stage, which is what I really admire. Because some celebrities or even famous bloggers/youtubers is different from what you see them on tv or on your computer screen and in real life.
Last time I used to really care about my image to the public, like when I first started doing #BenRanAway video with Ran, I used to think that... “Oh maybe I shouldn’t talk like that because people might not like it” or “Oh maybe I shouldn’t laugh like that because people might think that I’m very gross”. But after that I realised that, if I’m so conscious on saying anything or doing what I am always doing then it is so tedious and tiring for me.
Because on my blog, I just always write whatever I want to write and on video I would want to do the same thing too.
So after that I decided to just be myself and laugh like how I always laugh with my friends or family and talk like how I talk to everyone in real life when I’m doing videos. Because people who love you, will still love you for who you are. And if I want people to love me, I would rather them to love me for who I truly am, than putting up a fake front. I really think that those famous bloggers/youtubers that pretend to be nice to their “fans” (which is what they call them) but end up talking nasty stuff behind their “fans” back or making use of them is super gross. :/
Okay, I guess I sidetrack a little too much hahahaha! Back to the concert!
Went to the concert with Angie and Zj! A quick selfie before we enter the new national stadium!
So excited yay!
And it started!!!!!!!!
All pictures were taken using my phone, sorry for the lousy quality. But luckily I'm seated at the second row, so it's really close! I was sitting with the fan club people and her family members, so the atmosphere there was really high!
Halfway through the concert, everyone dashed to the middle of the stage to see her omg.
Everyone using their phone's flashlight while she sang her new song, Kepler!
More pictures of her!
With Queen and Guojie after the concert ended! :D
The concert was really good, especially when everyone sang along together. Love it!
