Raymond Lam… Many have not heard of this man, especially in the
July 13, 2008 was the day of arrival. It was the first time I was in
I can only look back at how disappointed it was at first. Frowns and perturbed looks for hours while traveling from the
And then I remember that day… it was July 15, 2008, 2 days after the disappointment. A friend suddenly called me and told me that he had a function. I remembered anticipating for him to come out of the hotel, while waiting with other fans. It was also that day did I meet Kwanyi, a girl fan over MSN.
After a 180 degree turn, I looked back and he stood there. The first reaction in my head was… such a handsome man! I was placid in the outside but confused inside. He looked like he popped out of the television screen. I still cannot believe till this day that I met him. He was very nice, signed the album that he recorded with 8 other Chinese artistes, in
And then I remembered after leaving… I FORGET to take a picture with him! Oh well again had to wait. During that waiting time I also went to the Miss Hong Kong 2008 pageant live. I had always watched the pageant since I was a boy (5 years old?). It was a great dream come true to see it live and of course Raymond was in it. He was a performer with other favorite artistes that I liked. I felt very joyful during that night. However it was still again not this time did I take a picture with him. He left the venue right after the pageant so again another disappointment.
Many have displayed happy emotions and reactions when hearing they will travel to
I was again disappointed but then… a chance came again. Another new function of a new TVB drama, Moonlight Resonance was here. He appeared with lots of other stunning, deft and clad artistes in Tsung Wan,
He was coming back from
Again he was nice indeed! He posed pictures with fans and of course was so polite to say thank you (in English too) after I said thank you (in Chinese). I will never forget that pat in the back and the friendly look. He looks very handsome in yellow and actually any color. Hopefully I can go on to be like him and lose those glasses!!
Many people ask me… “Samuel, why do you like him?” All I could say is “Looks is one part of the explanation, but mainly on his personality. He has a fun and nice personality. He is very real, inside and out. He had a inner personality and great voice and talent that shined to me.” Hopefully I can meet him again in 2009, if that is my parents allow me to go to
On behave of this essay; I want to give my full praise to the fans who accidentally took my side look. They wanted to entirely film Raymond but accidentally shot me. Thank you, I have four photos with him now haha. Even though I am more than 8000 miles apart with him, I feel zero distance with him after seeing and thinking about these photos.
